Thet or Daingnet people or Chakma

December 26, 2013

DNChakma language (Changma Vaj or Changma Kodha) is an Indo-European language spoken by the Chackma and Daingnet people or THETS of Myanmar.

The Chakma and Daingnet people now speak what may be considered divergent dialects of Bengali. However, this is due to language shift from a Tibeto-Burman language; that medieval language may have been related to Sak[5] or Chairel (Voegelin 1977)

Daingnet people do not call themselves Daingnet, they call themselves Changma just like the nearby Chakma people of Bangladesh and North East India. Daingnet is an exonym given to them by the Rakhine people. In the Rakhine language

SITTWE, Myanmar (Reuters) – A 16-year-old Muslim boy lay dying on a thin metal table. Bitten by a rabid dog a month ago, he convulsed and drooled as his parents wedged a stick between his teeth to stop him from biting off his tongue.

A Most Dangerous Journey: A WSJ Investigation

By Rachel Pannett

This account of a boat journey by a young couple from Myanmar offers a close-up look at a major issue facing the Asia-Pacific region today: the swelling tide of ships carrying refugees toward Australia. The trip is one of the longest, and most perilous, immigration journeys in the world. Yet the numbers keep rising, as more and more people from Asia’s poorest countries seek refuge in a nation many associate with freedom, wealth and a better life.

How to deal with the thousands of migrants on Asia’s seas will be a key dilemma for the next government in Australia, which heads to the polls on Saturday in a vote that will determine who leads the country.

Which group from India is supporting Anti-Muslim 969 in Myanmar?

I don’t know whether that news is correct or not. BUT I have read a lot of FALSE MALICIOUS dangerous propaganda intelligence news from the Indian Intelligence written in India newspapers esp in HINDUTIMES. The Indian and stupid un-Islamic Bangladesh Intelligence service just join hand to create fake news about Pakistan Radical groups’ training and activities of Rohingya and Myanmar Muslim insurgence groups just to please the Myanmar Government so that they could continue to lick the left over bones thrown to them by Myanmar.

Myanmar: FDI, Local Economy and the Rohingya Conflict

Myanmar: FDI, Local Economy and the Rohingya Conflict

Asma Masood Research Intern, SEARP, IPCS

On June 27, Myanmar announced that the government awarded a telecommunications contract to Qatari company Ooredo. It sparked a social media backlash in Myanmar. Citizens threatened boycott of its services. The Buddhist community was surprised by the win, especially as public pressure on the government in 2012 blocked the Organization of Islamic Countries from opening a Myanmarese office. The incidents reflect societal prejudice against OIC’s intentions. A grand strategy to spread Islamic beliefs is suspected. Local Muslims are also shunned in trade. But here discrimination is fuelled by perceptions of Rohingya as economically unworthy.

Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending the Myanmar Muslims Genocide Awareness Convention in Culver City, CA. I went because I felt it was important to put my presence where my mouth was: as I’ve indicated here at this blog, the situation in Burma has been incredibly distressing to me, and rather than simply talk about it, I want to be more involved in helping in any small way that I can to get it resolved.

May Allah punish this IDIOT Bangladesh Foreign Secretary and his government for their un-Islamic stands

June 18, 2013

Bangladesh Foreign Secretary Mohammad Shahidul Haque is blind and un-Islamic because Mr Haque said that he was unaware of anti-Muslim feeling in Myanmar. “I don’t see any anti-Muslim sentiments,” Mr Haque said. May Allah punish this IDIOT and his government for their un-Islamic stands

Official report on Rakhine State conflict gravely flawed

May 24, 2013

MYANMAR: Official report on Rakhine State conflict gravely flawed    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 23, 2013 ALRC-CWS-23-06-2013 Language(s): English onlyHUMAN RIGHTS COUNCILTwenty-third session, Agenda Item 4, General DebateA written statement submitted by the Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC), a non-governmental organisation with general consultative status

 1.      Following the communal violence that wracked the western parts of Myanmar near the border of Bangladesh in 2012, the country’s president established a commission of inquiry comprising of retired public servants, religious figures, politicians, academics and members of civil society. The commission handed down its findings on 22 April 2013. Despite high expectations, the 119-page report is gravely flawed. Although it contains a few useful recommendations and observations, to which the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar alluded in a press release of 1 May 2013, the commission’s positive contributions are outweighed by a range of omissions and misrepresentations and by an us-versus-them mentality that pervades the document.
