Attacks on Muslims in Asian states denounced

The attack on Muslims in Sri Lanka, China and Myanmar by extremist Buddhists and religious fanatics backed by governments is a matter of “serious concern” for the Muslim world and international community, said Saleh S. Al-Wohaibi, chief of the Riyadh-based World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), here Wednesday.
He voiced deep concern over the systematic persecution of innocent Muslim minorities in these three countries.
In an interview with Arab News, Al-Wohaibi said: “The Muslim communities in China, Sri Lanka and Myanmar are being subjected to attacks as people around the world celebrate the holy month of Ramadan.”
He also expressed WAMY’s inability to help Muslims overseas or extending financial aid, saying that “the regulatory agencies have imposed curbs on WAMY’s overseas transfer of funds.”
He, however, said that WAMY has been closely working with some organizations in China and Sri Lanka. Muslim communities in Sri Lanka, which account for nine percent of the country’s 20 million population, are being subjected to attacks by unruly mobs of Buddhist extremists. A number of Muslims were killed and hundreds of people seriously injured by anti-Muslim militias in southern Sri Lankan coastal towns in the last few weeks.
In Myanmar, inter-religious violence has taken place throughout the country over the past two years. At least 300 Muslims have been killed and more than 150,000 displaced since the June 2012 religious unrest. Most of the victims have been members of Myanmar’s Muslim minority, estimated to be about five percent of the population.
In China, the authorities have imposed restrictions on Uighur Muslims during the month of Ramadan, banning government employees and schoolchildren from fasting, in what rights groups say has become an annual attempt at systematically erasing the region’s Islamic identity.

Saudi Justice Ministry introduces new e-service

  • The new lease offers applicants the right to apply directly to the Court of Execution in clear electronic proceedings
  • Real estate owners can now apply, through the “unified lease agreement

JEDDAH: The Saudi justice minister and chairman of the Supreme Judicial Council, Walid Al-Samaani, has directed his ministry to start receiving requests for the implementation of the unified housing lease in the execution courts as an executive bond through the “unified lease contract,” after linking electronically with the Ministry of Housing.
The new lease offers applicants the right to apply directly to the Court of Execution in clear electronic proceedings.
Assistant Undersecretary of the Ministry of Justice for Implementation Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Saleh Al-Suhaiman explained this step will contribute to reducing the flow of cases to the general courts.
Al-Suhaiman said the real estate owners can now apply, through the “unified lease agreement,” which is registered in the electronic rental network, directly to the executive courts and departments, through the ministry’s portal, if the tenant does not pay the value of the rent when due. This step will contribute to reducing the flow of more than 22,000 cases reviewed by the general courts during 1438H and 1439H on leases.
