Ermm. I may be annoying but this is another picture of Burma Incident for people have been saying that the last picture was fake, well this is another picture here and in this one you can also see their army.
P.s. this text in From the Religion Section of Burma’s WikiPedia Page:
The Christian and Muslim populations do, however, face religious persecution and it is hard, if not impossible, for non-Buddhists to join the army or get government jobs, the main route to success in the country. Such persecution and targeting of civilians is particularly notable in Eastern Burma, where over 3000 villages have been destroyed in the past ten years. More than 200,000 Rohingya Muslims have settled in Bangladesh, to escape persecution, over the past 20 years
I can’t find any reliable news articles on this, can someone help me out?
This is appalling. These Buddhists cannot be called Buddhists, they are violating their religion and philosophy in every way possible.
They’re also being stoked by mass propaganda by the Myanmar government. They’re using the Rohingya as an excuse to avoid their own shortcomings with their failed economy, failed political system, and own failures to recover from one of the most deadly cyclones in recent history.
The issue is WAY more complex than just “Buddist majority killing Muslim minority”
The Burmese military junta (and current Burmese government) have always disliked the Muslims. Ahhh, you have to go way, way back in history, when after the Indian partition, a lot of Muslims moved to Burma, they tried their hand in business and were successful.
A bit too successful, according to the government, so their property was confiscated, and they were left with no livelihood and basically left to starve and die. Which did not happen, so now this is.
Most Burmese (buddhists) don’t much like the government, don’t like the military junta, the oppression, dictatorship, and conditions in burma- and yes, the Muslims are currently being used as scapegoats, once again.
But the issue is way, WAY more complex then just “Massacre to Muslims by Buddhists” and as a Burmese Muslim I beg of you, please do not try to simplify the issue like that, it is not helping, it will only make things worse. Do not make a complex matter into something simple and take away from how difficult it is and how absolutely fragile a situation.
