I never thought i would see monks with AK47s wielded on their backs causing tyranny against muslims.

So much for a "peaceful" people.

1. Pashtuns ruled that region in the past:

Pashtun rule of northern Burma



2. Buddhist monks are not as peaceful as they are made out to be:

a: In Tibet the Buddhist monks ran a slave-state where many people were subugated to them.

b: In Sri Lanka the Buddhist monks are at the forefront of anti-Muslim hate campaigns.

*** Bangladeshi soldier kidnapped by the Burmese ***

http://bdnews24.com/bangladesh/2014/...ion-by-myanmar




- Another alleged RSO operation against the Burmese.

- I hope the Bangladeshi military has a good set of plans (A, B, C and D) for any border war with Burma if they continue to attack us and our soldiers.

Open Letter to Imams – Support the Rohingya

Posted by: Guests May 30, 2014 in Civil Rights, Current Affairs, Featured 1 Comment

ﺑﺴﻢ ﺍﷲ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻤﻦ ﺍﻟﺮﺣﻴﻢ
May 28, 2014

Quote:
“There used to be 5 million Muslims in Burma. Now only 3 million are left. … There is just one doctor for 83,000 Rohingya Muslims, while for the Buddhist neighbors, there is one physician for every 681 persons.” – Burma Task Force USA 1
Assalaamu Alaikum Dear imām,

We are writing to you on behalf of the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC)2 with a khutbah request for Asian Heritage Month. Could you speak regarding our Rohingya brothers and sisters in Burma during an upcoming Friday? They need the ummah's support now.3
We have heard reports of Muslims expressing sentiments that “the Muslims in Asia don't really know Islam because they don't understand Arabic” and “I don't care for what is happening in Burma or anywhere else like that, I care for what is happening in [location].” “I don't care about these people, I don't want to know about them.” 4
This comments are distressing in the light of our values as Muslims. Allāh subhana wa ta'ala says in Surah At-Tawbah, Verse 71
“The believing men and believing women are allies of one another.”

An-Nu'man ibn Basheer reported: The Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said, “The example of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of a body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.” (Sahih Bukhāri, Sahih Muslim).

MuslimARC believes that many Muslims are still not aware about the plight of the Muslims in Burma (officially known as the Republic of Myanmar). As an imām, you are a central figure in many Muslim communities and you are thus specially positioned in your community to address important topics that affect the most vulnerable and oppressed in the ummah. If you have not done so already – and even if you have discussed the genocide before – would you please consider speaking about the Rohingya people during Asian Heritage Month? We are asking that you encourage your community to support the Rohingya through advocacy, donations to humanitarian aid, and prayers.

There are many lessons we can discuss looking at the history and ongoing oppression of Rohingya peoples. Although the Rohingya have lived in Burma for generations, they have long been a persecuted minority. Human Rights Watch reports, “Burma's 1982 Citizenship Law effectively denies Burmese citizenship to the Rohingya population, estimated at 800,000 to 1 million people.” Following recent sectarian clashes between Buddhists and Muslims, the violence against the Rohingya has escalated to ethnic cleansing policies. Currently, there are 200,000 Rohingya living in refugee camps in Bangladesh and 100,000 internally displaced in Burma, who are subject to health crises after the Myanmar government forced out NGO aid groups. Additionally, tens of thousands of Rohingya have been subjected to human trafficking and exploitation in neighboring Thailand.5

In light of the lack of current US Muslim support, it is especially important that you exercise your influence and encourage Muslims to demand action. We are providing you with a list of topics that we think merit particular attention during Asian Heritage Month given what we have observed in our ongoing conversations about humanitarian causes in Asia and the non-Arab speaking world.
Among the topics that can be explored are the following:
● Lessons we can learn from the history and plight of the Rohingya people.
● Highlight the importance of advocating for justice all over the world. Allāh subhana
wa ta'ala says:
“ O you who have believed, fear Allāh and speak words of appropriate justice” (Al-'Ahzab 70).

Encourage your followers to not privilege one people or cause over another, but to care for their brothers and sisters regardless of their background. Emphasis the importance of standing for justice and striving to rectify any wrongs regardless of the ethnic, racial, or cultural background of the oppressed.

● Stress the importance of being aware of what is happening in the ummah beyond the
front page news.

● Remind believers the importance of not judging someone's faith by their native language or ethnicity, but on piety. Non-Arab Asian Muslims are real Muslims and, in fact, Southeast Asians rank among the most enthusiastically practicing Muslims.6 Non-Arabic speakers are equally as Muslim as Arabic speakers and non-Urdu speakers are just as deserving as Urdu speakers.

● Highlight the diversity of Islam by pointing out that Islam is not an Arab religion and that nearly two-thirds (62%) of Muslims live in the Asia-Pacific region. In fact, Islam 7in Asia is more than just India or Pakistan, as Asia is home to one of diverse Muslim populations in the world. With 25 per cent of the total world Muslim population,Southeast Asia is home to Muslim communities with a rich heritage. By speaking about Islam in Asia, you can highlight some of the lesser known facts about Islam and Muslims and dispel many stereotypes.

● Remind your congregation to not fall into apathy, but to take action against oppression, whether removing it with our hands, speaking against it, or hating it in our hearts. Encourage Muslims to write letters to representatives, give aid, support human rights and pray for the oppressed.
Last year, June 1st was the International Day of Action for the Suffering of the Rohingya People. As we approach June 1st this year, MuslimARC hopes to increase awareness and support a global call to action on social media and in our communities. With the lives of one8 million Muslims at stake, there are several actions you can encourage your followers to take.The Messenger of Allāh ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said: “He who relieves a hardship of this Dunya for a believer, Allāh will relieve a hardship of the Day of Resurrection for him.” (Sahih Muslim).
Your congregation can donate at www.burmamuslims.org. The Burma Task Force is a united effort of Muslims to stop genocide of Muslims in Burma and the following organizations are part of this coalition: Burmese Rohingya Association of North America, Free Rohingya Campaign, American Muslims for Palestine, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR),Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago (CIOGC), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA NY & Canada), Islamic Council of New England (ICNE), Islamic Organization of North America (IONA), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), Justice For All, DawaNet, Majlis Shura of Atlanta, Michigan Muslim Community Council, Muslim Alliance of North America (MANA), Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), Muslim Ummah of North America (MUNA),Muslim Leadership Council of New York and Muslim Peace Coalition.
Muslims can also donate through Islamic Relief USA at their Myanmar Humanitarian Crisis page here:

http://www.irusa.org/emergencies/mya...tarian-crisis/.
Lastly, your congregants can follow US Congressional action on this issue–the House Foreign Affairs Committee has called for an end to persecution of Myanmar's minority Rohingya Muslim and unanimously passed a resolution in March 2014 urging the United States and the wider international community to press Myanmar to protect ethnic and religious minorities.9
Please do not hesitate to contact MuslimARC if you have any questions or to let us know that your congregation will be participating. We are also more than happy to provide you with resources for your khutbah. We encourage you to record your khutbah, if able, and to send a copy or link to the recording to info@muslimarc.org so that others may benefit from your words.

JazakAllah kheir,

MuslimARC

*** HEAVY CLASHES BETWEEN BURMESE AND BANGLADESHI FORCES ON THE BANGLADESH-BURMA BORDER. ***

- Burmese are continuing attacks on Bangladeshi forces.

- Jamaatis on a Pakistani forum (defence.pk) are supporting the Burmese and cheering the death of Bangladeshi soldiers.

- This situation may escalate.

Indonesia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, America and others may all get involved.





Indonesia may get involved diplomatically along with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the OIC.


There are thousands and thousands of volunteers who will go to Bangladesh if needed from 200 million strong Indonesia.

- The Burmese killed one Bangladeshi soldier while he was in Bangladeshi soil.

- They have released his body after diplomatic pressure from Bangladesh.

- Apparently Bangladeshi tanks went to the border and the air force was put on a state of high alert.




Bangladesh Air Force.


Some are speculating that the Burmese got scared.

If there is a repeat and war escalates, there are thousands of Indonesians who will be all too happy to go to Bangladesh to defend our soil.

The Burmese are not good soldiers. In the past 2 years they have had 5,000 of their soldiers killed by the KIA (Kachin rebels) and can no way deal with the far more professional Bangladesh military.

On a previous occassion 600 Burmese soldiers were killed in one incident on the Naf river.

Quote:
"Naf is a bordering river between Bangladesh and Myanmar. Upper Naf has about 12 branches of smaller river. In 1966, Pakistan and Burma concluded a treaty agreeing that none of the countries will train the Naf river or branches of rivers . With the natural shifting of depth of river the demarcation of boundary between the countries will shift. When I took over as DG BDR I was told that 28 hundred acres TOTAL DIP OF BANGLADESH had been grabbed by Myanmar by shifting the depth of Naf river by building dams, groans and spars on the stewaries of main Naf river taking advantage of 1966 treaty. Suddenly, Myanmar started building dam on the last branches of Naf river, if completed whole TAKNAF would go into the sea. We protested but in-vain. Myanmar didn't stop. To protect the building side Myanmar deployed two divisions Army under command two major generals one from army and another from Navy. We positioned 2500 BDR troops under DDG BDR and kept the command directly under me. In one night, I moved 25 lac different types of ammunition and bombs in Cox's Bazar. Kept half in Cox's Bazar and sent half to the war positions. On 1st January 2000 at about 2.30 pm, I gave order for firing and the offensive strick was on. It lasted for 3 days in which 600 Myanmar army soldiers were killed. The war was live broadcasted by reporters Z. I. Mamun and Supan Roy on Ekushey Television. On 4th January, Myanmar's Head of the State Senior General Than Shwe call all the diplomats in Rangoon telling them that, Myanmar wants no war with Bangladesh. Cease fire was effected and a letter came from Myanmar govt saying, "We invite a delegation from Bangladesh to discuss all outstanding matters between two countries without any preconditions". Negotiation started under joint secretary (political affairs) Janibul Haque of the Ministry of Home Affairs, who headed the Bangladesh delegation in Myanmar. During the bilateral talks, Myanmar side was so wrought-up that they didn't even provide typewriters. And the treaty was signed on hand written documents. Myanmar dismantle the dam, thus we could save Teknaf from being lost into the Bay of Bengal. We defeated Myanmar's forces completely with no loss of life from our side. This is in nutshell about NAF WAR."

- The Indonesian volunteers who may come to defend Bangladesh will be more than a match for the poorly trained Burmese military who force children to fight for them.

UPDATE: 6 Burmese troops killed. 2 from the regular Burmese military (in defiance of international law which states that regular army forces cannot patrol borders, only special border forces can) and 4 BGP (Burmese border guards).

This in addition to the other 4 Burmese killed a week or so ago means:

- 1 Bangladeshi dead: 10 Burmese dead.


Here is a URL with a picture of dead Burmese soldiers:

https://scontent-a-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/...61276470_n.jpg

So far on facebook this picture has 49 shares already.



I do not take any joy in such pictures as whenever I see dead people I think of their mothers who raised them.

I do not want a war with Burma and want a political solution to the Rohingya conflict.

If however they continue to cause trouble for us, our army will smash them.

We also have support from 200 million people of Indonesia. Many who will volunteer to defend our soil.

U.S. calls for probe of reports of Myanmar military atrocities

WASHINGTON | BY DAVID BRUNNSTROM

The United States on Thursday called for a credible, independent investigation by Myanmar's government of reports of military atrocities in the country's Shan State, saying they were reprehensible, if true.

A rights group, the Shan Human Rights Foundation, accused Myanmar's army last week of bombing schools and Buddhist temples, firing on civilians and rape in an offensive against ethnic rebels in eastern Myanmar that has uprooted more than 10,000 people.

"We are concerned by reports of Burmese military atrocities, including allegations of indiscriminate attacks on civilian populations and infrastructure, rape, and other acts of sexual violence," said Katina Adams, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department.

"These allegations, if true, are reprehensible, and we urge the Government of Burma to undertake a credible, independent investigation into these allegations, and to hold perpetrators accountable for their actions."

Last month, the senior U.S. diplomat for Asia, Assistant Secretary of State Daniel Russel, was in Myanmar, which is also known as Burma. He met Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing and urged the military to exercise restraint and to work to promote peace and reconciliation in conflict areas.

Myanmar has fought ethnic groups in its borderlands off and on for decades, causing massive displacement within the country and forcing hundreds of thousands to seek refuge across the border in Thailand.

In October, a military-backed civilian government that replaced a military junta in 2010 signed a ceasefire with eight armed ethnic groups. But the deal fell short of its nationwide billing, with seven of the 15 invited groups declining to sign, including the Shan State Army-North and the Kachin Independence Army.

After 2010, the country embarked on U.S.-backed reforms towards elections that were held last month. Opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy won in a landslide, but her party has yet to take power.

According to activists in Shan state, the army has shelled six villages, shot and injured three people, and fired on 17 villagers who are now missing, since Oct. 6.

The Shan Human Rights Foundation said it had documented eight cases of sexual violence since April 2015, including a 32-year-old woman gang-raped by 10 soldiers on Nov. 5 while her husband was tied up under their farm hut in Ke See township.

The Myanmar government has not responded to requests for comment about the fighting in Shan state.

http://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-mya...0TM29C20151203




Bamar fascist, Aung San Suu Kyi.



- Burma is a multi-ethnic, multi-religious state consisting of Buddhists, Muslims and Christians and ethnicities such as the ruling Bamars, Kachins, Shans, Rohingyas and others.


- The Bamars - like the Punjabis in Pakistan - have taken control of the state and rule over others.

- Suu Kyi is a Bamar fascist and Bamar supremacist.

Bamar nationalists like to use the "Buddhist" card to touch in to Islamophobic elements to portray themselves as defenders of Buddhism against Islam. However what they don't mention is this:

- The Bamar army kills Buddhists e.g. the Shan.

- The Bamar army destroys Buddhist temples.

- The Bamar army is sworn enemies with majority Buddhist Thailand.
