Rahman said the prayers were held in over 700 mosques.

He said the Myanmar Army was torturing the community by portraying Rohingya Muslims as militants, especially in the western state of Rakhine.

The TSJU-H also urged the Indian government, the US, China, Thailand and other neighbouring countries to take up the matter with Myanmar.
