MAPIM and SHURA IN SOLIDARITY WITH VICTIMS OF BOSNIA MASSACRE
We stand in solidarity with all family members of the victims of the Bosnia Massacre between 11th – 22 th July 1995 .
This is the worst cold blooded murder of more than 8,000 sons and daughters of Bosnia Muslims since the holocausts in Europe.
We condemn the carnage and demand for justice for the victims.
The murder was executed in full sight of the world and the victims are still not receiving full justice as provided in the international law.
The UN United Nations peacekeeping officials were unwilling to heed requests for support from their own forces stationed within the enclave, thus allowing Bosnian Serb forces to easily overrun it and—without interference from U.N.
The UN failed both to demilitarize the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBiH) within Srebrenica and to force withdrawal of the VRS surrounding Srebrenica.
The Srebrenica massacre also known as the Srebrenica genocide was unspeakble . The killings were perpetrated by units of the Bosnian Serb Army of Republika Srpska (VRS).
The documented statistics exposed the war crime recorded
8,372 death , at Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
It was only 21 years after , on the 24 March 2016, former Bosnian Serb leader and the first president of the Republika Srpska, Radovan Karadžić, was found guilty of genocide in Srebrenica, war crimes, and crimes against humanity and sentenced to 40 years in prison. In 2019 an appeals court increased his sentence to life imprisonment.
A United Nations court convicted two former allies of late Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic of aiding and abetting crimes committed by Serb paramilitaries in a Bosnian town in 1992.
It is the first time that Serbian officials have been convicted by a U.N. court of involvement in crimes in Bosnia.
UN declares Serbian officials guilty of 1992 Bosnia war crimes.
This is a black memory for Muslims and reminds all governments who champion human rights and against genocide , that Muslims have been targeted in Europe especially and even more foccused on Islamophobia by hateful narrations towards Muslims.
We call on all Muslim leaders in Europe and around the world to stand up against attacks on Muslims. The Bosnia massacre should move Muslims to unite and resist the aggressions targeting Muslim communities.
