Quite recently, model Ayyan Ali who had been arrested for allegedly smuggling currency out of the country, had also pledged to keep a fast for three days and offer nafil prayers for the Rohingya.
The Rohingya community have been subjected to severe persecution over the years by extremist Buddhist monks of Myanmar. Scores of Muslims in Burma have been killed and thousands have been forced to flee the country via ships.
