The Association of Muslim Scholars decided to organize financial aid for the Rohingya people in Myanmar, Burma, East Asia, which is being persecuted and burned in front of the world cameras and human rights organizations.

The Association called for a popular Algerian solidarity donation to raise funds and pressure foreign parties to act against atrocities and genocide, mass murder and burning against this muslim minority.

In a press conference, Dr. Abderrazzak Guassoum, chairman of the Association of Muslim Scholars, condemned what is happening to the Rohingyas. 

He said the association would open the door to some scholars and representatives of human rights organizations in Algeria to find a suitable solution to help the Rohingya Muslim minority in Burma.

The association presented photographs of some events in Burma that exposed the brutality of the abuse, torture and burning of the Rohingya muslims, including pictures of children being tortured and burned.

Dr. Ammar Talbi, deputy head of the Muslim Scholars Association, said that the convoy of aid to Gaza was still in Port Said Port despite negotiations with the Egyptian Embassy in Algeria and the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, which lasted two days after the convoy was prevented from entering the Rafah crossing, by an Egyptian intelligence officer. 

Talbi asserted that the list of medicines, mattresses and foodstuffs was presented to the Egyptian authorities and nothing else was added, adding that 5 million euros is the value of this aid, which will be lost if it will remain stuck in the port of Port Said.
