David Burrowes leads a Parliamentary debate calling on the Government to press the Burmese Government to improve their human rights record and give full rights and citizenship to religious and ethnic minorities, most notably to the Rohingya Muslims in Arakan state.
Mr David Burrowes (Enfield, Southgate) (Con): It is a privilege to have secured the first end-of-day debate of the new Session of Parliament.
An official report into last year’s violence in Rakhine State, launched on April 29 at the government’s foreign donor financed Myanmar Peace Center, is intellectually, ideologically, empirically and analytically flawed, underscoring President Thein Sein‘s bid to whitewash the recent ethnic cleansing of Muslim Rohingya in the western state, which borders Bangladesh.

So-called Buddhist monks and Rakhine civilians protest shelter built for displaced Rohingya who they label as illegal inhabitants…interesting just when ~670 6,000,000 Myanmar Kyat/house homes just built for Sittwe Rakhine IDP’s versus 10,000′s of Rohingya still living in straw huts and tents with dirty pond for water sources and after Bangladesh born Rakhine ethnic given confiscated Rohingya land, new built homes and legal status oin Northern Rakhine Maungdaw Township.

All the Rakhine government Ministers are like cat-faeces, soft spoken and polite but cunning, cruel, racist, bullies and corrupted.
One thousand of the Malaysian government affiliated MRA donated relief kit-boxes are still piled up in the ware-house. Some of the boxes were broken and the contents were stolen. Rakhine Government leaders asked Muslim Organizations to pay an inflated and unreasonable price of Kyat 10 million for the distribution of the boxes to the Rohingya Muslim Refugees. Muslim Organizations offered the Rakhine leaders Kyat1.9 Million as the donation (Actually Free of Charge Toll-Fees or Protection money or bribery or Set-Kyae in Myanmar) to just allow the Muslim Organizations to distribute the donated boxes to the refugees bearing the costs themselves. Rakhine leaders are greedy and heartless to cruelly reject that “donation” and blocked the distribution of donated boxes.

Haul Ven. Wirathu, the regime’s fall ‘monk’ to The Hague and try him for openly inciting crimes against humanity.
- Rev. Wirathu
Here is a must-watched Nazi speech (13 minutes) by Rev. Wirathu from Mandalay’s new Ma-soe-yein Teaching Monastery, with my rough but accurate Burmese-to-English translation of the gist of his speech:
1) the Buddhist public needs to adopt a nationalist mindfulness – in virtually everything we do (that is, we must eat, sleep, see, hear, speak and breath ‘(Buddhist) nationalism’.
2) but, to my dismay, i am finding out that our Buddhist public still lacks this nationalist mindfulness.
3) ‘they’ (the Muslims) do everything with this (muslim) nationalist mindfulness. On example, in the previous military era, they flocked to the generals and through their connections, they have captured the Construction boom/market in Yangon. They didn’t love the military or the generals. They collaborated with the military for their national (Muslim) interests.
