Throughout this peaceful fighting we will work to establish mutual trust among all nationalities for the tranquility among our brethren communities regardless of race, religion, believe, faiths, color, language, culture, dress, properties, region and appearance.

UN Chief Tells Myanmar to Make Rohingyas Citizens
Thursday, 11 July 2013
abcnews
By PETER JAMES SPIELMANN Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS July 10, 2013 (AP)

The U.N. chief on Wednesday warned Myanmar that it must end Buddhist attacks on minority Muslims in the Southeast Asian country if it wants to be seen as a credible nation.
Sectarian violence against Rohingya Muslims in the predominantly Buddhist nation has killed hundreds in the past year, and uprooted about 140,000, in what some say presents a threat to Myanmar's political reforms because it could encourage security forces to re-assert control.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Wednesday: "It is important for the Myanmar authorities to take necessary steps to address the legitimate grievances of minority communities, including the citizenship demands of the Muslim/Rohingya."
He says failing to do so could risk "undermining the reform process and triggering negative regional repercussions."
In 1982, Myanmar passed a citizenship law recognizing eight races and 130 minority groups — but omitted the nation's 800,000 Rohingyas, among Myanmar's 60 million people. Many Myanmar Buddhists view the Rohingyas as interlopers brought in by the British colonialists when the nation was known as Burma.
Earlier this year, Myanmar passed a law limiting Rohingyas in two townships in the western state of Rakhine, bordering Bangladesh, to having two children, a law that does not apply to Buddhists. Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi criticized the law, and was widely denounced by Buddhists in Myanmar. Seen as likely to be elected president of Myanmar, she has had little else to say about Rohingya rights.
Myanmar had been ostracized by most of the world for 50 years after a coup that instituted military rule. But in recent years the country has been cautiously welcomed after it freed many political prisoners and ended the house arrest of Syu Kyi and instituted reforms. President Barack Obama visited the country last year on an Asian tour, as a hallmark of Myanmar's rehabilitation

Five Rohingya Die, More Deaths Feared, in 'Horror Centre' in Thailand
Friday, 05 July 2013

By Chutima Sidasathian
PHUKET: Two Rohingya being held captive in Thailand died yesterday as a doctor warned the Governor of Songkhla that conditions in a detention centre are inhumane and likely to lead to a growing toll among the boatpeople.
The two deaths while the men were being taken to hospital took the total number of deaths at the crowded Sadao Immigration Centre in Songkhla province to five fatalities since January.
Volunteer doctor Anantachai Thaipratan told Phuketwan: ''I was ablle to check the condition of 80 of the people in the facility yesterday. Of those, five needed immediate hospitalisation. Two of the men died on the way to hospital.''
By the time that the men were being taken to hospital, Dr Anantachai was in the office of the Governor of Songkhla, telling him that the 302 people were being kept in impossibly crowded and unhealthy conditions.
''These people cannot move,'' the doctor said. ''They get no exercise. They are losing the use of their limbs and the consequences of continuing like this will be more deaths.''
The Rohingya men being held in Sadao Immigration are among 2000 Rohingya apprehended on boats and ''rescued'' from traffickers' camps along the border between Thailand and Malaysia in January. 
Thai authorities said the Muslims, fleeing ethnic cleansing in Burma and regarded by many as legitimate refugees, would be kept in Thailand for six months while their future was determined.

Cyclone Mahasen And Myanmar: Weathering Disasters In The Rakhine State – Analysis
Friday, 24 May 2013

Even as Cyclone Mahasen made landfall on 16 May 2013 at Chittagong coast in Bangladesh, it missed the expected shift to the northeast toward Rakhine State in Myanmar. The Rakhine is home to approximately 140,000 Internally Displaced People (IDPs) as a consequence of the sectarian violence perpetrated on the Rohingya Muslims last year. According to official forecasts by the Myanmar Meteorology and Hydrology Department, regardless of the cyclone making full landfall into Myanmar, it would pass through the Rakhine with heavy rainfall and strong winds; raising fears that it could flood the low-lying refugee camps in the region.
In this sense, Mahasen has brought to the fore the criticality of inculcating Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) processes within larger conflict management exercises in Myanmar. How has Cyclone Mahasen affected the Rohingya crisis? Should DRR be a more proactive measure for mitigating the possible protraction of violence in the region?
Between A Storm and A Hard Place
International aid agencies such as the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) and Amnesty International amongst others, have been working to resolve the Rohingya crisis over the past year. All along, they have been consistently emphasising the probable havoc that annual monsoon rains could wreak in the affected zones. Almost 70,000 IDPs remain in makeshift shelters in low-lying areas along the coast, which are highly susceptible to tidal surges and flooding.

Burma and Turkey: Obama’s Muslim Human Rights Double Standard
Wednesday, 22 May 2013
May 21, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield 
http://frontpagemag.com/
ImageWhen Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, the leader of an Islamist regime that openly supports terrorism and locks up the opposition, came to America, he got the red carpet treatment, including a United States Marine holding an umbrella over the murderous thug’s head.
During their joint remarks, Obama made no mention of the tens of thousands of political prisoners in Turkish jails, the habitual repression or the violations of the rule of law. No mention was made of allegations that Turkey had used chemical weapons in Iraq against the Kurds. Instead Obama lavished praise on one of the country’s worst enemies and pledged his support for Erdogan’s proxy war against Syria.

Military allied with Model Villagers (Natala) for Murder
Thursday, 18 October 2012

On 18th October, 2012 (i.e. today), at 8:30am, four Rohingya youths from Buggone Nah, Maungdaw south, were captured by 22 Bengali Rakhine Natala villagers while the said youths went to nearby hill for cutting grass for their household cattle. Out of 22 Bengali Rakhine Natala villagers, 20 equipped with knives and daggers and the rest two were with M-16 guns. These two guns are possessed by Myanmar Police Force camped in Huta Bonnya, in the same village tract. After capture, the victims were first tied up with thick ropes and brought to the Natala Village. The victims were inhumanly tortured. As a preparation for killing these Rohingyas, the gang sat for a table of alcohol. While the gang was engaged in drinking alcohol, one of the victims luckily got eased in tie. After a long struggling, he himself untied his tie and could help another two victims to untie their ties. By the time, the gang realized the victims’ effort to escape themselves; the gang chased the freed victims. One victim is so unlucky that he could not escape from the tie. Nobody knows about the fortune of the remaining victim till the time of reporting. The freed three victims reached their respective homes at dusk. The parents and relatives of the remaining victim reported the issue to the Military camped in Nyaung Chaung. Military replied that it is none of their business and to solve the problem by own way. This incident report was collected from neighbors of the victims.

The victims are identified as:

1.       Mohammed Hasson (F) U Abul Hashim                  26 years (the remaining victims in capture)

2.       Iman Husson (F) U Lay Rhdu                               22 years

3.       Mohammed Roshid (F) U Abdullah                        20 years

4.       Mohammed Shah (F) U Abdu Malek                      30 years
