Chicago Imam Visits Burma’s Rohingya Refugees

In the last month, 400.000 people from Burma’s Rohingya ethnic group were forced from their homes by Burma’s army and militias. Most refugees fled to Bangladesh. Chicagoan Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid has just returned from visiting refugee camps along the Bangladesh/Burma border. He’ll tell us refugee stories and what people can do to help. Imam Mujahid chairs Burma Task Force USA, a coalition of Muslim-American organizations that maintains it wants to “stop the genocide of Rohingya Muslims” in Burma.
