Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai has finally spoke up on the pathetic situation of Rohingya Muslims in Burma and urged the influential leaders of the world to take notice of this genocide of Muslims in Burma.
Malala said in her recent statement that she is standing with the Rohingyas and also encourages people everywhere to do so.
“I call on the leaders of Myanmar and the world to take immediate action to halt the inhuman persecution of Burma’s Muslim minority Rohingya people,” she said.
She stressed the right of Rohingyas to have proper citizenship rights and said that they also deserved equal rights and opportunities.
“Rohingya Muslims deserve to be treated like we all deserve to be treated-with dignity and respect. Today and every day”, she said.
Malala is currently in the United Kingdom completing her studies at the Edgbaston High School, a private school in an upmarket part of Birmingham. After being shot by Taliban in October 2012, Malala was treated at a hospital in Birmingham. She started at her school in the city in March last year.
