Sein Win: With your command, we continue using scorched earth tactics in Northern Rakhine towards the border. The army is destroying everything on its way including children and women, and also advanced to south of Maungdaw.

Min Aung Hlaing: Do it as if Rohingya are burning their own houses.

Ireland can no longer wait. This great country experienced the worst in the past when a million men, women, young boys and girls lost their lives in one of the largest tragedies in the history of humanity, partly resulted in disorganization of the ruling at the time and “too little too late” in response.

Ireland can no longer accept the excuses the world’s leaders and the Burmese government. Definitely not from Aung San Suu Kyi, who was given “cead mile failte” – “a hundred thousand welcomes” when she made her visit to this great city on June 18, 2012. She was also given the most prestigious award of the city, “the Freedom of the City of Dublin”.

The scorched earth strategy was masterminded by Dictator General Ne Win in 1963, who was inspired by Japan’s “THREE ALLs” (‘Kill all, Burn all and Loot all’) tactics.

It was called “SWEEPING” an area “suspected villagers and burning their villages”.

The Four Cuts is intended to cut off food, funds, intelligence and recruits to ethnic insurgencies. Often referred as “NO MAN’S LAND” policy in 1990s, it is now directly commanded by the office of commander-in-chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing. Read More

The clashes between Rohingya insurgents at a number of Burmese police posts in Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung townships on August 25, 2017, are followed by month-long provocations from Burmese Military and Rakhine Extremists.

These offensive and provocative acts are believed to be strategic moves towards militarisation by the military intelligence, with an aim to create further fears and chaos among the communities living in the northern Rakhine State.

These provocations–expanded upon below– are a calculated attempt to undermine the recommendations made by Kofi Annan’s Advisory Commission, which officially submitted the final report to Aung San Suu Kyi led National League for Democracy NLD government on Friday, August 25. Read More

The 1988 Rohingya Extermination Plan was first proposed by Col. Thar Kyaw who was an ethnic Rakhine and the first chairman of National Unity Party (NUP), a proxy party of Burmese military and former Burma Socialist Programme Party (BSPP) formed to compete against National League for Democracy (NLD) during the 1990 general election.

The plan was adopted by the Burmese junta’s State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) in 1988 and continued under State Peace and Development Council (SPDC).

When an army lies, it lies too many too often

Since General Ne Win’s coup on March 2, 1962, Tatmadaw (Burma’s Armed Forces) becomes a delusional institution entirely built on a lie.

He announced the lie after coup, “I have to inform you, citizens of the Union that Armed Forces have taken over the responsibility and the task of keeping the country’s safety, owing to the greatly deteriorating conditions of the Union.” Read More

Things that begin badly end worse!

PEOPLE WITHOUT IDs

Rohingya welcomed the Year 2016 as people without IDs. Former President Thein Sein ordered to repeal of temporary identity cards, also known as ‘White Cards’ in February 2015. The last pieces of document Rohingya came to possess after decades of systematic forceful documents seizures.

DISENFRANCHISED PEOPLE

The revoke of the IDs completely stripped of Rohingya last right – Voting despite having participated in every election before and after Burma’s Independence.

Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, reflect on your own complicity in the genocide of my fellow Rohingya people, instead of dismissing well-documented allegations of crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and genocide as “exaggerations” and “fabrications”

Myanmar State Counsellor and Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, both personally and from her Office, attack the growing allegations of her government’s policies of persecution of Rohingya people. Read More

As the neighbour, Bangladesh is morally bound to provide fleeing Rohingya a safe protection under international humanitarian, human rights and refugee laws, not the other way around

At the time of conflict or adversity, a good neighbour always counts. So is expected from Bangladesh. Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB)’s push-back poses a serious security threat to the lives of Rohingya refugees and it does not relay the message of good-neighbourliness in the time of great despair.

“Help the situation is to make sure that there is no illegal crossings of the border. And Burma claims that a lot of Muslims who are now in Burma are actually people who have come over illegally from Bangladesh,” the Burma’s Nobel Peace Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi once ignorantly told an audience of young human rights enthusiasts at Amnesty International’s – ‘Aung San Suu Kyi inspires the Next’ programme in Washington, DC on September 20, 2012.

The Western Gate, a 200-km fenced-border with Bangladesh is perceived as “Last Frontier of Buddhism” in Burma. For decades it is being used to fan anti-Rohingya and anti-Muslim sentiments and hostilities by Rakhine extremists, Buddhist fanatics and military regimes.
