Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has called for an organization of Muslim countries to help end the persecution of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim minority, while Indonesia has offered to be a facilitator to find a solution to the ongoing crisis.

Prime Minister Najib Razak made this comment in an opening statement to members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) gathering in Kuala Lumpur.

He claimed that the violence must end otherwise armed groups including the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, as know as ISIS) could infiltrate the Rohingya.

The OIC is made up of 57 countries with large or majority-Muslim populations.

“OIC member states are well aware that terrorist organisations such as Daesh could seek to take advantage of this situation,” Najib said, using the Arabic acronym for ISIL.

Security forces in Buddhist-majority Myanmar are accused of widespread abuses against the Rohingya, including killings, rape and the burning of thousands of homes that have driven an estimated 65,000 refugees across the border into Bangladesh in the past three months.

Myanmar’s army began the latest crackdown in Rakhine state in October after nine policemen were killed along the border with Bangladesh.
