UN Security Council Pushing Rohingya Muslim #FAKENEWS in Myanmar
It is true that in the past month over half a million Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar the UN says they are trying to escape an orchestrated campaign of violence described by the UN as “ethnic cleansing.”
The reality is Myanmar is responding to a series of attacks by Rohingya Muslims on local people.
While the #FAKENEWS of the “Rohingya Muslim” crisis the reality is the Rohingya Muslim have been on a murderous rampage in the region.
Bodies of 45 Hindus have been discovered in three mass graves in the Myanmar’s conflict-torn northern Rakhine state, the officials said blaming Muslim insurgents for the killings.
Rakhine state has been in a turmoil since August 25 after Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks on police posts.
Border Guard Police Maj. Zayar Nyein told Associated Press that two of the graves, that were found on Monday, contained bodies of 20 females and eight males.
The government’s Information Committee said on its Facebook page that all eight males were boys, including six who were under 10 years old. It said another mass grave was discovered 200 meters away on Monday that contained the bodies of 17 more Hindu villagers.
Turkish deputy prime minister, Mehmet Simsek, was criticised for tweeting graphic images of corpses, alongside a message warning of a massacre against the Rohingya. “Stop turning a blind eye to ethnic cleansing in #Arakan #Myanmar Int’l community must act now,” he said on Twitter. He later deleted the tweet and issued a correction after readers questioned whether the images depicted Myanmar. His post was shared more than 1,600 times online and liked by more than 1,200 people. One of the photographs had been taken in Rwanda in 1994.
No One Wants the Terrorists
Rohingya Muslims violence has left them stateless,the predominantly Buddhist Myanmar considers them Bangladeshi, but Bangladesh says they’re Burmese.
The Rohingya Muslims are Led by ARSA
The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army also known by its former name Harakah al-Yaqin (meaning Faith Movement in English), is a Rohingya insurgent group active in northern Rakhine State, Myanmar. According to a December 2016 report by the International Crisis Group, it is led by Ata Ullah, a Rohingya man who was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and grew up in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Other members of its leadership include a committee of Rohingya émigrés in Saudi Arabia.
According to the lead interrogator of ARSA suspects jailed in Sittwe, Police Captain Yan Naing Latt, the group’s goal is to create a “democratic Muslim state for the Rohingya” in Myanmar. Although there is no firm evidence linking the ARSA to foreign Islamist groups, the Burmese government suspects that the group is involved with and subsidized by foreign Islamists. The Burmese government has also accused the ARSA of murdering 34 to 44 civilians and kidnapping 22 others in reprisal attacks against those the ARSA have perceived as government collaborators.
