Former Federal Minister for human rights, Ansar Burney said that the Ansar Burney Trust International has grave concern on the reports on Rohingya girls who were taken hostage at human-trafficking camps in the neighbouring countries of Myanmar (Burma) have been gang raped by their traffickers.

Ansar Burney said that as per reports survivors of the horrible experience of rape said young women would be dragged away at night from the jungle camps, which lies near Padang Besar in Thailand, to a place where they would be gang raped by the guards. Similar crimes were taking place at nearby camps on the Malaysian side of the Thai border.

Reports said that the confined migrants in private prisons of human traffickers experienced the shrieks and cries of the girls because the place they raped them was very close to our pens, but as the incidents were at night, we could not see what was happening.

The discovery of human-trafficking camps and mass graves in the past few months sent shock-waves in Southeast Asia, triggering a crackdown on smugglers and human traffickers by Thai and Malaysian authorities.

Ansar Burney requested with general public to please support and help Ansar Burney Trust International to help crying humanity and send Zakat and Donations at 6 – Hassan Manzil, Arambagh Road, Karachi. Phone (021) 32623382 Mobile 03000602202.

He said that on Tuesday he himself with a team of Ansar Burney Trust is going to visit Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia to meet and help the Rohingya migrants and trafficked humans in these countries to get first hand report and to help them on humanitarian grounds in the month of Ramadan.
