NEW DELHI, India  

Displaced Rohingya community living in India hailed on Thursday the International Court of Justice (ICJ) verdict, directing Myanmar to prevent the act of genocide against them. They were all in praise for the small West African country, Gambia that took up their cause to the world’s topmost court.

“It is something the entire community has been waiting for. The order is a step forward towards ensuring justice and relief from the slow-burning genocide,” said Ali Johar, a Rohingya youth leader living at Kalindi Kunj Rohingya camp in southeast Delhi.
