Save The Rohingya

Save The Rohingya

Hello, Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening and Assalaam Alaikum fairtrade friends and supporters.

This is my humble attempt to support the most persecuted people in the world.
 Here is my Just Giving Page where you can support the Rohingya.

As a human being, fairtrade campaigner and educator I believe it is my duty to campaign for the Rohingya and hopefully raise some money for them before my birthday. I will raising money for Partners Relief and Development based in the UK who have been providing relief and emergency aid to the Rohingya for several years.

It's heart breaking to read about Rohingya women being exploited and sold into slavery.

Who are the Rohingya

The Rohingya are a Muslim minority group in predominantly Buddhist Myanmar (formerly Burma), concentrated in the western state of Rakhine. There are about 1.33 million Rohingya in Myanmar, according to the Immigration Ministry.

Rohingya activists claim a centuries-old lineage in Rakhine, but the 1982 Citizenship Law, enacted by Myanmar’s former military government, excluded them from a list of more than 100 groups recognised as ethnic minorities. This exclusion rendered most of them stateless. 

Since then, most Rohingya have been denied identification cards, which are required for everything from schooling and marriage to finding a job or getting a death certificate.

Despite the hardships they face, there is little sympathy towards the Rohingya in Myanmar. Anti-Rohingya sentiment is widespread, and the authorities call them “Bengalis”, to signify they are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. Even those in Myanmar’s democracy movement, including Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, have not spoken out on Rohingya’s behalf.

Thank you for supporting the Rohingya wherever you are in the world.

Ramadan and Eid Mubarak to all my friends, family and fairtrade producers around the world!

This is my blog summarising my effort to support fairtrade producers and artisans during the blessed month of Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr 2023.

This year my right shoulder has been very painful and prevented me from creating vlogs and blogs about Fair Trade in Islam.

On a positive note I tried to post a fair trade product every day during Ramadan and Eid ul Fitr 2023 with translations in English and Urdu.

Apologies in advance for any errors in the Urdu translation.

یہ میرا بلاگ ہے جو رمضان کے بابرکت مہینے میں فیئر ٹریڈ پروڈیوسروں اور دستکاروں کی مدد کرنے کی میری کوششوں کا خلاصہ کرتا ہے۔

اس سال میرے داہنے کندھے میں بہت تکلیف ہوئی اور اس نے مجھے اسلام میں فیئر ٹریڈ کے بارے میں بلاگ اور بلاگ بنانے سے روک دیا۔


اردو ترجمہ میں غلطیوں کے لیے پیشگی معذرت۔
