Indian Protest to Highlight Rohingya Plight
19 July 2012
Indian Islamic organization Darsgah-e-Jihad-O-Shahadat is planning to hold a “dharna” protest in Hyderabad on Thursday to highlight the perceived slaughter of Muslim Rohingyas in Burma. “Hundreds of innocent Muslims are being tortured and killed in Burma. People across the globe should join hands to stop the excesses being committed in Burma,” group president Mohammed Majid was quoted by The Times of India. The protest is due be staged near the Madina Circle in the Andhra Pradesh capital in India’s south, but observers believe clashes with police are on the cards as official permission has not been obtained.
