#burmese muslims, or rohingya muslims, are on the brink of being ethnically cleansed by the myanmar military/extreme buddists. an estimated 130,000+ people have fleed to bangladesh and to the seas, wherever is not burma, and 400-900 have died already.
this is genocide, ethnic cleansing.
the rohingya conflict has been going on for years, and what has happened recently has also happened throughout the years of its history. last year, 85,000 rohingya crossed the border in what seems to be a similar situation- innocent women, men and children being set on fire, beheaded, shot, soldiers committing arson on homes, the denial by the government.
myanmar's leader, aung san suu kyi, has also been avoiding the topic of rohingyas, when she does speak, she calls them terrorists- but the only muslim terrorist group in myanmar is a small one, made up of around 100 people compared to the approximately 1 million muslim rohingyas in myanmar.
the murder, discrimination, persecution of burmese muslims needs to be stopped.
