Organization of Islamic Cooperation's (OIC) member countries held a meeting to review the condition of Rohingya Muslims in Astana. The meeting focused over the atrocities on the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. The meeting said violence on the Muslims is against the international law.

Dr. Amna Mehmood (IR Expert):
OIC has proposed sending an OIC mission to probe the massacres of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. In my opinion this regional organization should have sent its own fact finding mission to Myanmar. Hundreds of Rohingya men and boys have been rounded up and remain incommunicado in the western region of the country. International community has its own interests so will never take notice of worst brutalities in Myanmar on Muslim community. All the Muslim countries should call back their ambassadors from Myanmar as a protest against mass killing of innocent people.
