I'm heading deep into the #CARcrisis in Central African Republic for @natgeo over the next few months. I'll try to keep you updated as I go along. This long running conflict has fallen off the international media agenda over the past year, but the human rights abuses continue and the population still suffers.
An anti balaka fighter hiding in the bush in 2013 in Central African Republic. In the latest edition of the @natgeo you can learn about the people of the Central African Republic and how they have been fighting to survive for many years. The reportage I shot over 4 years is available on the iPad and in the magazine. #carcrisis@humanrightswatch
The Forgotten Muslim Genocide in CAR
Since 2013/14, our Muslim brothers and sister in Central African Republic have been facing genocide. The anti-balaka Christian militia has been ethnically cleansing CAR of its Muslim minority population (who only make up 20%).
They have been consistently raiding every Muslim village and killing, torturing, & raping Muslim families mercilessly - in an effort to wipe them out of their country.
80% of CAR's Muslim population has escaped the country and 417 of CAR’s 436 mosques have been destroyed (and are not allowed to be rebuilt).
Muslims who returned to CAR in 2017, found all of their homes gone and their mosques destroyed. Their Christian neighbors prevented them staying - unless they stopped practicing Islam or converted to Christianity.
The genocide and ethnic cleansing of Muslims is still occurring in CAR (at a rapid rate) - YET the Muslim Ummah has stayed silent and is still ignoring the oppression of their brothers and sisters!
Are you waiting for this genocide to become popular in the media and amongst the kuffaar leaders & media? Then you will open your mouth and join in on the hashtags and protests?
Let's not make the same mistake we did with Burma and Syria.
Raise awareness for this part of our Ummah, before it's too late!
How many more years of genocide will it take for us to wake up?
