The original map I had linked was no more in Wikipedia. As usual for Wiki, some “Nationalists” went in to “edit” to “protect” their dignity. Nevermind I hereby added another map I downloaded from the IAIS web site regarding Myanmar Muslim seminar.

The First Anglo-Burmese War (1824–1826) ended in a British victory, and by the Treaty of Yandabo, Burma lost territory previously conquered in Assam, Manipur, and Arakan. The British also took possession of Tenasserim with the intention to use it as a bargaining chip in future negotiations with either Burma or Siam. As the century wore on, the British in India began to covet the resources and main part of Burma during an era of great territorial expansion.
So actually British had made a very great favour for Malaysia by taking back its FOUR NORTHERN STATES from Burma. If not those 4 states and 4 Malay states in lower Thailand would be under Burma.
