Hundreds of people in Pakistan have staged protests across the country in support of the persecuted Rohingya Muslim community in Myanmar.

People from all walks of life, including those from different religious organizations, took to the streets, calling on the Pakistani government to help protect the Rohingya Muslims being mistreated in Myanmar.

The latest and biggest rally was held in Karachi, the largest and most populated city located in southwest Pakistan.

Demonstrators carried placards and chanted slogans in support of the oppressed Muslims in Myanmar.

They called on the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar to take stronger action to stop the continuing persecution of the over 1.3 million Rohingyas living in western Myanmar.

In another demonstration in the city of Lahore in Punjab Province, protesters expressed their anger over what they called the inhumane killing of the innocent Rohingya Muslims by Buddhist extremists.

Rohingyas in Myanmar face daily discrimination, including controls on their movements, family size and access to jobs.

 

According to the United Nations (UN), Rohingya Muslims are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world.
