King Salman orders additional $15 million for Rohingyas

King Salman orders additional $15 million for Rohingyas”

On Wednesday, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, also the Custodian of the two Holy Mosques, ordered an allocation of $15 million for the Rohingya Muslims who fled persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine state.

The Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar have long faced severe discrimination and were the targets of violence in 2012 that killed hundreds and drove about 140,000 people from their homes to camps for the internally displaced.

The Rohingya are a minority group in Myanmar's Rakhine State.

In face of global condemnation, Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi has appeared for a public speech and said she "wants to find out why Rohingyas are fleeing".

At the end of the meeting, the OIC Contact Group issued a declaration that called on Myanmar to accept the UN Human Rights Council's fact-finding mission to conduct "thorough and independent" investigations into acts of brutality committed against Rohingya Muslims.

The cabinet meeting renewed calls made by Saudi Arabia on the global community to take urgent action to stop the violent acts and to give the Muslim minority in Myanmar their rights without discrimination or racial classification.

Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, the United Nations high commissioner for human rights, said the military's "brutal" security campaign was in clear violation of worldwide law, and cited what he called refugees' consistent accounts of widespread extrajudicial killings, rape, and other atrocities.

"As per the directive of the King, the centre has carried out a number of projects, while some others are in various phases of implementation", he was quoted as saying by the Saudi Press Agency.
