The 5 language petition reads;
 
In last couple of months, the Muslim minority in Myanmar (Rohingyas) has been attacked by Buddhist extremists; many Muslims have been killed, their houses, villages and mosques have been burned and this human catastrophe has forced thousands of people to escape for their lives. Unfortunately,policemen and military government officers took side in the violence and actively participated in attacking Muslims minority.

Of course, Rohingyas are the victims of discrimination and human rights abuses for decades. For years, the basic rights of this minority group have been denied by Myanmar military government.
 
They are not considered Myanmar’s citizens by the government which has led to lack of access to basic human rights like education or freedom of movement. However, the new wave of violence against Muslims in Myanmar with killing of hundreds of innocent civilians and children, destroying the houses and mosques, and forceful displacement of people from their homelands has hurt the human feelings and caused deep concern for every person who believes in justice and human rights.

We, the undersigned, condemn the violence against any minority group and very specifically, the Muslim minority in Myanmar. We deeply concern about the situation and request UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to call for an immediate resolution meeting to condemn the human right violation and killings in Myanmar and take effective actions to restore the peace and  protect the Myanmar’ Muslims minority group.
 
These people deserve to live in peace and their minority rights must be respected by military government of Myanmar.
