The detailed report is as follows.
3rd June 2012 was day on which Government-sponsored Rakhine (Magh) Terrorists mercilessly killed 10 Muslim in Taungote Township on their way back home from a pilgrimage trip in Thandwe Township. The violence against Muslims spread to Maungdaw, Buthidaung, Sittwe, Pauktaw, Thandwe and other parts of Arakan afterwards. The violence has displaced more than 140,000 Muslims in Arakan, while thousands of Muslims have been killed during the violence. The violence is still going on and it has turned into a full-fledged Genocide of Rohingyas. In short, brutalities against Rohingyas have been beyond imagination.
Therefore, in order to commemorate those 10 Muslims killed and the following massacres of Rohingya en masse, Rohingya Community in Malaysia held a gathering in Kuala Lumpur Today. The gathering was named “3rd June, Rohingya Genocide Day.” Hundreds of Rohingyas in specially designed Red T-Shirts attended the commemoration event. It was a well-organized event in many Rohingyas participated voluntarily to organize the event. A separate sitting section was arranged for female participants.
Several local Malaysian Media and international media also came to cover the event. Malaysian Police, too, together with Intelligence Department in Bukit Aman arrived at the event in time to prevent hassles and unnecessary side-consequences. The RELA (the People’s Volunteer Corps) helped Rohingya organizers of the event in managing traffic and car parking.
