OIC delegation: Rohingyas are victims of brutal torture
The Rohingya refugees sheltering in refugee camps in the Cox’s Bazar district of Bangladesh fled “brutal torture” in Myanmar, a delegation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has said. The OIC team visited refugee camps in Kutupalong and Balukhali on Thursday and Friday to acquire firsthand information on the state of human rights violations faced by the Rohingyas in Rakhine state. “We have found substantial evidence that Rohingya Muslims were victims of brutal tortures including massacre and rape,” the president of the OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC), Rashid Al Balushi, told a media briefing held at Balukhali-2 refugee camp at 12.30pm yesterday. "We will submit our report to the OIC.” The OIC visit was undertaken in coordination with the government of Bangladesh. The delegation also included OIC vice-chairs SK Kaggwa and Raihana Binte Abdullah; OIC IPHRC members Ambassador Muhammad Zamir, Abdul Wahhab, Mahmud Mustafa Afifi and Adam Nana; and OIC executive directors Marghoob Saleem Butt, Hafid El Hachimi, Akem Al Ghamdi, Hassan Abedin, Maha Akil, Abdullah Kabi and Mohammad Kalaba. Representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cox’s Bazar district administration were also present. The delegation firmly stated that the OIC will always stand beside the persecuted Rohingya Muslims.
