KARACHI, Pak­istan — Thousands of sup­port­ers of Pak­istan’s main Is­lamic Ja­maat-e-Is­lami party have gath­ered in Karachi to protest Myan­mar’s treat­ment of its Ro­hingya Mus­lim mi­nor­ity. The JI sup­port­ers ral­lied Sun­day on a Karachi main street for hours chant­ing slo­gans in sup­port of the Ro­hingyas. The JI leader Senator Si­ra­jul Haq, ad­dress­ing the rally by video link, urged world pow­ers to carry out their role in im­me­di­ately stop­ping the “planned geno­cide of the op­pressed Ro­hingya Mus­lims.” An­other Is­lamic party, Jamiat Ulema-e-Is­lam, held a rally in north­west­ern city of Pe­shawar in sup­port of the Ro­hingya Mus­lims. JUI leader Jaleel Khan con­demned the “atroc­i­ties” com­mit­ted against Mus­lims in Myan­mar.
