By now, we’re all well aware of the plight of Rohingya Muslims. The stories of their immense persecution have been brought to light by various news outlets.

In the past two weeks alone, countless Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar, heading to Bangladesh.

 

Around 1000 people are reported to have been killed as a result of all the violence.

To say that matters look bleak for the Rohingya Muslims is a gross understatement

 

And the incidents being narrated are downright heart wrenching

 

As a result, there has been – to an extent – a general public outcry

 

People have been urging others to stand up for Rohingya Muslims

 

Some of our politicians have spoken up as well

As news of the rising death toll has been unraveling, a few Pakistanis decided to take the initiative to try to ease the plight of the oppressed in Myanmar. These brave Pakistanis stepped up to the cumbersome task and have set out together to travel to Burma.

 

Waqar Zaka initiated the mission

 

And Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain replied promptly

 

They have been updating Pakistanis about their plans

 

Iqrar ul Hassan has also set out to help the oppressed community in whatever capacity he can

 

They have all been documenting their journeys

Whether it’s on Twitter or Snapchat, people are getting constant updates on their progress.

 

As a result, Pakistanis are lauding the three for their bravery

 

And have been passing on their regards to these courageous men

 

People have kept aside their personal misgivings to appreciate the men

 

Some are sending blessings and prayers their way

 

And right now, all people want are for them to be successful in their mission and to return safely

 

Regardless of the negative buzz around the men and their antics otherwise, their initiative is worth appreciating. Undoubtedly, they have earned major respect. Moreover, currently, they have the support of the entire country behind them. We can only hope and pray that they are successful in their venture.
