We affirm that no religion, in itself, advocates violence or terrorism
Letter sent to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Statement on violence, hatred, mistreatment of minorities and terrorist Attacks:
Dear Ms San Suu Kyi,
We write to you as the Presidents of the Christian Muslim Forum in England. We are concerned to see accounts of attacks on the Rohingya Muslim people of Burma at the hands of terrorists and the Burmese military.
We urge you to plead for the cause of the Rohingyas with the Burmese Government, for cessation of hostilities against them and impartial application of law and order.
We also ask you to highlight the ongoing discrimination against the Rohingya, especially since the 1982 Citizenship Law and call upon the Burmese government to recognize the Rohingya as Burmese citizens. Ethnic cleansing and marginalization of minorities can have no place in a modern state.
Christian Muslim Forum
Signed by the Presidents of the Christian Muslim Forum: Revd Alison Tomlin, Anjum Anwar, Rt Revd Donnett Thomas, Rt Revd Dr Richard Cheetham, Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra, Rt Revd Paul Hendricks.
