Aung San Suu Kyi under pressure as Muslim Rohingya Crisis Continues

The foreign minister of Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, flew to Myanmar for emergency talks on Sunday as the Rohingya crisis continues.

Minister Retno Marsudi arrived in Myanmar’s capital, Yangon, as protesters in her own capital, Jakarta, launched a Molotov cocktail at the Myanmar embassy.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that violence against the Muslim Rohingyas amounted to genocide, while British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned Aung San Suu Kyi that the oppression of the minority was “besmirching” her country’s reputation.  (Source: 3 September 2017)


We hope these Muslim leaders and governments will not merely go through the motions of protest. The cold blooded genocide of the Rohingya Muslim men, women and children being perpetrated by the military and government of Myanmar with ‘moral justification’ provided by extremist terrorist Buddhist monks must be halted.  Imagine if the Ummah of Indonesia and Turkey were truly one Ummah under one sincere leader of the Believers, how long would the crisis of Myanmar last? If all Muslims were united and spoke with one voice and acted as one body, one army, would the blood of Muslims be shed so wantonly in Myanmar? The armies of the Daulah (Khilafah State) would have moved even at the mere threat of danger to the Muslims in Myanmar. Not only would they liberate the Muslim lands there, they would not stop until Syria, Palestine and all Muslim lands were free.

وَقَاتِلُوا الْمُشْرِكِينَ كَافَّةً كَمَا يُقَاتِلُونَكُمْ كَافَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ مَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ

“And fight against the disbelievers collectively as they fight against you collectively. And know that Allah is with the righteous [who fear Him].”


Islam did not leave us to fend for ourselves to seek a manmade solution. We have the perfect complete solution prescribed to us by the Creator of this world. To see the Mercy of Allah (swt) we must follow His commands and truly establish and rule of Islam. Then we the Ummah in Indonesia, Turkey, Rakhine, Bangladesh, ash-Sham, Palestine and the world would be just one Ummah and this One Ummah will be enough to bring true peace to all of mankind under Islam.
