Video: The Plight of Muslims (Rohingya) in Burma: History & Geopolitics

Talk 1 from an event held in Sydney, Australia on 4 August 2012 entitled "The plight of Muslims in Burma"

Speaker: Br Uthman Badar

As the world's attention is focused on the Arab spring sweeping across the Islamic World, toppling dictator after dictator, liberating the Muslims from decades of tyranny and oppression, in the far east, savagery against our Muslim brothers and sisters knows no bounds.

Where once the Buddhist majority protested against their suppression by the military junta of Burma, they are now the tyrant oppressors burning Muslims alive in their homes and buses just because they are Muslims. How are they to fast, pray and complete their entire Islamic obligations under such circumstances?

In this blessed month of sacrifice, endurance, patience and perseverance we need to bring focus that it is also a month of liberation, conquests and victories. As important as it is for our Ibadah to be complete and wholesome, so it is the right of every Muslim.

Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia invites you to a public lecture to throw the spotlight on our forgotten brothers and sisters in Burma - their struggle is our struggle, and we must raise awareness of their plight.
