30th Nov, 2019- Yemen’s deafening silence.
By Syed Haider Raza Mehdi
The UN fire and Brimstone speeches were silent on one of the biggest human tragedies taking place in Yemen.
All those who so righteously railed against India for their atrocities in Kashmir and rightly so were convenient silent on Yemen.
Especially the 3 leaders of the Muslim World, Imran, Erdogan and Mahathir.
While one highlighted the hypocrisy of the world in turning a blind eye in Kashmir for economic interests, the same person turned a blind eye in Yemen for our economic interests and even traveled in a plane offered by the person who instigated, initiated and is directly responsible for this horrifying blood bath.
Selective morality, Selective outrage, Selective values,
Here are the horrifying numbers of tragedy since it started in 2015..
91,600 killed including 12,000 civilians. As per ACLED. Armed Conflict Location and Data Center
49,960 wounded, including 10,768 civilians.
3,154,572 people made refugees. UN report
84,701 children died of starvation. Save the Children report.
*Children of a Lesser God?*
Be ashamed! Be very ashamed
