Burma: The tragic story of Noor Ashah. Must read, must share, please!
By a humanitarian worker on the ground
"This is Noor Ashah and her husband Jafer Miah. They belong to a village by the name of Akkap in Myanmar district (Burma). Hers is a truly heart breaking reality of what is going on in Burma. In her own words she told me that she was in her house with her five children, when it was set on fire by local Buddhist extremists. The fire spread so rapidly due to the fact that her house was made of wood and straw roof. She managed to escape with three of her children but unfortunately she couldn't help the remaining two. She said she could hear their screams but could do nothing to help them because of the intensity of the flames and she stood helplessly as her whole house was burnt to the ground. During all of this she was unaware that her foot was on fire and it got burnt to the bone. Soon after, her husband took her and the remaining three children and fled for their lives to the refugees camps on the border of Bangladesh. That's where I found them. When I saw the condition of her foot, we immediately took her into a local private hospital for emergency treatment. She will loose her foot because it burnt all the way to the bone with severe infection.
Her husband tells me she was a lively woman but since this horrific incident she has become emotionless. I urge you all to do what ever it takes to help put an end to the injustices happening to the Muslims in Burma. Pray for our sister, Noor Ashah."
The brutal Burmese security forces attacking our Muslim brothers by snatching the
Noble Quran from their hands and throwing it on the road. But the Faith of our
brothers is strong and firm, and they will never leave the Quran.
