Rohingayas are the center of attraction today in Media. Many Muslim countries and Non Muslim countries where Muslims are in a large number are protesting against the Exodus and alleged killings of ‘Rohingyas’ in Rakhine state of Myanmar.
There are some 2,00,000 to 2,50,000 ‘Rohingyas’ living in Pakistan. Pakistani government is carrying out emotional appeal’s everywhere to save Rohingayas but the people of Pakistan aren’t interested to help and rehabiltate Rohingayas in Pakistan.
Facebook page of ‘The Dawn’ one of the leading newspaper of Pakistan posted an article on its page highlighting the suffering of Rohingayas. The article was also about whether Rohingayas should be given citizenship in Pakistan or not. The negative feedback that this article received is something that will shock you.
Pakistanis who claim themselves the protectors of whole Muslim Ummah were Jilted with the mere thought of providing citizenship to the Rohingaya people.
Here are some screenshots of those comments:
Many Pakistanis also linked the Rohingaya refugees with Afghan refugees whom Pakistanis hate and detest and accuse of being sympathisers of ‘Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan’.
Meanwhile there were some sane voices also who were quick to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of their fellow countryman.
