Saeed Ajmal raises £30,000 for Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims

KARACHI: Pakistan’s ace spinner Saeed Ajmal raised £30,000 in a charity program for the Rohingya refugees in England.

According to details, a fund-raising event was organized in Manchester on Saturday where Ajmal was the chief guest.

It should be noted, the sectarian violence and discrimination against the Rohingyas in Myanmar have caused thousands to migrate from the country through boats.

An estimated 1.3 million Rohingya make up a minority in Rakhine, one of Myanmar’s poorest states while countless are still trapped in camps, with conditions often worsening.

The off spinner is currently in England playing domestic cricket for Worcestershire.
