Ten Muslim welfare organisations organised a rally in the city today demanding a stop to the atrocities against Rohingyas in Myanmar bringing the city to a halt for about four hours.

"We are extremely aggrieved about the ongoing heinous atrocities on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmmar. Thousands of Rohingya Muslims including children have been killed by the police and military in that country. The Myanmmar goverment must take responsibility," Furfura Sharif Peerzada Toha Siddiqui said.

"We condemn the decision of the central government (to deport Rohingyas living in the country illegally) and demand immediate roll back of it," Mohammed Nuruddin of All Bengal Minority Students Federation said.

West Bengal Pradesh Congress Committee president Adhir Chowdhury, CPI(M) leader Sujan Chakraborty also participated in the rally.
