Gülen Donates $10k for Rohingya Aid

31 July 2012

Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen has donated US $10,000 to support Rohingya Muslims who have become embroiled in sectarian violence since early June, reports Today’s Zaman. The cash was earned from the sale of his books and audio recordings and will be distributed through leading Turkish charity Kimse Yok Mu (Is Anybody There) to refugees in Bangladesh’s Cox Bazar over the border from Burma’s western Arakan State. Communal violence is grinding on despite the Naypyidaw government declaring a state of emergency with Muslim Rohingyas increasingly being targeted in attacks that have included killings, rape and physical abuse, claims Amnesty International.
