Malaysian prime minister Najib Razak led a protest rally on Sunday against what he called a “genocide” of Myanmar’s Muslim Rohingya minority, as he urged Asian neighbours and the world to step up the pressure to stop the violence.
UN please do something. The world cannot sit by and watch genocide taking place, Najib said to loud cheers from thousands of Muslims, including Rohingya refugees. The world cannot say it is not our problem. It is our problem,” he add.
Tens of thousands of Muslim Rohingya have fled their homes since a bloody crackdown by the Myanmar army in Rakhine, sparked by a string of deadly attacks on police border posts in early October.
