Who are the Rohingya?

And what's their problem?

Most media sources and wiki describe the Rohingya as the world’s most persecuted people, a population of about 1.1 million people who live predominately in Rakhine state within Myanmar. The Rohingya people say they are descendants of Muslims, perhaps Persian and Arab traders, who came to Myanmar generations ago. Unlike the Buddhist community, they speak a language similar to the Bengali dialect of Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Looking back over 1000 years of history we cannot be precise. It is well documented that Southeast Asia was more influenced by Hinduism over the first few centuries of the B.C. era and this was followed by Buddhism which became the predominant philosophy. Under Hinduism and Buddhism, the region flourished peacefully but then Islam arrived and took over. The Islamic takeover in Indonesia and Malaysia was successful as like everywhere else when the Islamic population became large enough, they used brute force to displace local populations and execute those who failed to comply.

Today there are two sides of the current ongoing crises fighting against each other. ARSA (also known by the name Harakat al-Yaqeen, or “Faith Movement.”) fighting with the Myanmar government claiming they are fighting for freedom and government claiming that ARSA is a terrorist organization. The tension got escalated when in 9 October 2016, when ARSA attacked the Border Guard Police (BGP) bases in Rakhine State and later in 12 November when they killed a senior army officer. ARSA signifies the emergence of a new Muslim insurgency in Rakhine and its leader Ata Ullah, who was born in Karachi and later moved to Saudi Arabia, has garnered much support from both the countries, due to its terror activities. Reportedly, he was also trained in modern guerrilla warfare under the Taliban in Pakistan. It does not surprise me, in fact tells more about what ARSA is all about, contrary to what they say they stand for. If Myanmar’s Union Minister for Home Affairs Lt-Gen Kyaw Swe is to believe, ARSA Terrorists want to create Islamic Republic in Rakhine.

Promoted in the world media as a genocide against Muslims, if it were a real ‘textbook example of ethnic cleansing’, no Hindu would have died so far. The Muslims are not only killing Buddhists, they are killing Hindus and any non Muslims. So Hindu and Muslim families are fleeing the country as the Myanmar government seeks to crush the rebellion and like all conflicts, civilians get caught in the crossfire; especially as Muslims use then as defensive shields. What's going on here is a duplication of what's happening in Syria.

"In even a cursory survey of Rohingya history, it is clear that the Rohingya are not an ethnic, but rather a political construction. There is evidence that Muslims have been living in Rakhine state (at the time under the Arakan kingdom) since the 9th century, but a significant number of Muslims from across the bay of Bengal (at the time a part of India, now Bangladesh) immigrated to British Burma with the colonialists in the 20th century. They are, as defined by Benedict Rogers (himself a prominent critic of the military regime’s persecution), “Muslims of Bengali ethnic origin.” The group referred to as “Rohingya” by contemporary Rohingya scholars (and most of the international community) today actually display huge diversity of ethnic origins and social backgrounds, and, as Leider argues, the existence of a “single identity” is difficult to pinpoint." ~ The Diplomat

Across the bulk of Southeast Asia which includes part of Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar, the Arab inspired Muslims found the dense jungles too difficult to penetrate and the local Buddhist inhabitants with the local knowledge on how to survive were better able to defend themselves. However small Islamic populations gained a foothold and survived through trade in coastal areas like Arakan. They co-existed uneasily alongside Buddhists for decades, but the Buddhists have defended themselves as they do today. The Rohingya people maybe ethnically diverse and there was some migration from Bengal including some Hindus, but the primary belief system of the Rohingya is Islamic.

"There was Indeed a Terrorist attack on 10 Police Stations Of Rakhine (Myanmar) and Native Buddhist People in Which 9 Policemen and 62 civilian Totalling to 71 People Were Dead... Links of Pakistan's Inter Service Intelligence (ISI), ISIS & Saudi Arabia Have Been Established.... Website Details of Arakan Rakhine Salvation Army (ARSA).... A Jihadi Organisation Headed By Pakistan Born AtaUllah (45 Year Old son of a Pakistan based Rohingya Father)... Brought Up In Saudi Arabia Are Out. Phone Calls Between ISI (Pakistan) & Ata Ullah (Chief of ASRA)... Have Been Intercepted By Indian Intelligence Agencies." ~  France 24

Those who call themselves Rohingya are Moslems in accordance with Islamic doctrine are compelled to convert the entire human civilisation on this planet to Islam and those who don't convert must die. This is the core of Islamic doctrine. Over the centuries the Rohingya have tried and failed, but they have never given up. Since communications, living standards and health care improved following World War II, the Rohingya population has rapidly increased and expanded into other areas of Myanmar.

As with southern Thailand and the southern Philippines, these Rohingya Muslims have been getting direct support from Saudi Arabia and more recently Daesh (isis), the Islamic fighting force seeking to establish a caliphate across the Middle East. Over the past 70 years, the Rohingya have become a lot more aggressive towards their Buddhist countrymen who are defending themselves. The video shows the Rohniga opening scene on on June 8, 2012. This attack set off the waves of large-scale violence that erupted in Arakan/Rakhine State, and also in various parts of Burma proper. Everybody should see this 2 and a half-minute video to understand what the Buddhists are up against, and how there is no easy way to deal with the deadly ideology and agenda that is creating this mayhem.

Today the world's media are describing the Rohingya as being a persecuted people, but this is simply media lies. In recent years the Rohingya have killed tens of thousands of Buddhists and taken over their lands but when the Buddhists defend themselves today, it is the media who brands them as being the terrorists. Not every Muslim is a terrorist, but every true Muslim is sympathetic and provides shelter or aid to those generally called terrorists who use violence to further the Islamic cause. Some say that agitation is being stirred by forces wanting access to natural resources and geopolitical interests.

To the people of Myanmar, the Rohingya have always been violent, have never integrated into Buddhist society and have always been seeking their own Islamic form of self-determination. In other words, the Rohingya to the Buddhists are like smallpox and must either be neutralised and freed of their Islamic predisposition or removed. You can see the parallels in western countries that have taken in Islamic refugees over the past few years, there has been a huge increase in crime, areas of cities have become Ismalised and places where the people of the land are no longer welcome and even the police fear to tread.

While countries like Norway are expelling the Islamic troublemakers, Myanmar is being portrayed as the aggressor by the worlds media and Islamist organisations when in fact it is only defending itself.
