The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan in a statement said “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan condemns in strongest words the massacre of Rohingya Muslims by the armed forces of Burma.”
The statement further added “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan while condemning the wild and inhuman attack by the government forces, urges the international human rights organizations and the United Nations to strictly and thoroughly investigate the massacre of Muslims.”
According to reports, hundreds of Muslim residents of Rohingya have been brutally killed amid latest wave of violence across the province during the recent weeks.
Hundreds of thousands of people of Rohingya have also been reportedly forced to flee to the neighboring Bangladesh as reports indicate that their houses were burnt besides the people of the area were brutally killed.
The Hezb-e-Islami party led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar blamed the Taliban group in Afghanistan for fueling the mass killings of the Muslims in Burma during the recent years.
In a statement released in the aftermath of the recent violence in the country, Hezb-e-Islami said the violence against Muslims in Burma has a old history but the massacre of Muslims was further fueled after the Taliban group detonated the Buddhas in Bamiyan.
The statement further added that the enemies of Muslims used the opportunity to spark tensions against the Burmese Muslims using the detonation of Bamiyan Buddhas as an opportunity, forcing the Burmese Buddhists to start movements against the Muslims for the revenge.
