Human Rights Abuses Since Thein Sein Became President

10 Jul 2013

Burma Briefing No. 26

President Thein Sein has been hailed by the British government and many other world leaders as a reformer. He has even been described as courageous. In their rush to embrace Thein Sein as a democratic reformer, the British government, which used to talk about justice, accountability, and ending impunity in Burma, seem prepared to ignore the fact that Thein Sein spent 14 years on the ruling council of the previous dictatorship, and was one of its most senior members.

the anti-Muslim propaganda being spread in Burma.
While a lot of attention has focussed on propaganda
spread on social networks such as Facebook,
most people in Burma do not have access to the
internet. Leaflets inciting anti-Muslim hatred are
being distributed across the country, including by
Monasteries.

Burmese Bin Laden: Buddhist Monk Wirathu is Behind Violence in Myanmar

Burmese Bin Laden: Is Buddhist Monk Wirathu Behind Violence in Myanmar?

By Gianluca Mezzofiore

COMMENT: Wira Thu PROUDLY said that he is “MYANMAR BIN LADIN” that literally meant, Myanmar SON OF Ladin. Ha ha. Did he meant ALL Myanmars are sons of Ladin the ARAB?

Or Wira Thu just claimed “MYANMAR BIN LADIN” that literally meant, Myanmar the SON OF Ladin. He meant he is a Myanmar but the son of Ladin the ARAB as bun=son.

NOW it is time to ask all the SILENT MAJORITY Buddhist Myanmars and Rakhine whether they are with Terrorist Radical 969 Gang or the Peace loving Buddhists.

If they still support the 969 Mass Murders prepare to go to hell or follow Wira Thu to ICC.

Motorcycles pass in front of a mosque that burned during the riot in Meikhtila March 22, 2013. Unrest between Buddhists and Muslims in central Myanmar has reduced neighbourhoods to ashes and stoked fears that last year's sectarian bloodshed is spreading into the country's heartland in a test of Asia's newest democracy.

Much has been made of the recent sectarian unrest in western Burma and its ramifications for the country’s fragile reform process. It’s important to note that the violence and subsequent outpouring of anti-Rohingya anger is not a niche issue confined to a specific locale – instead it should be viewed as something more pervasive among many Burman and Arakanese, both inside Burma and abroad, that threatens to contaminate the wider discourse on how to move the country forward.

Supporting Rohingya human rights draws ugly attacks

Burma Campaign UK (BCUK) supports human rights for the Rohingya people. For Burma Campaign UK to make such a statement shouldn’t be surprising or controversial.

We are a human rights organization working on Burma. How could anyone disagree that the Rohingya people are entitled to full human rights and the normal rights and protections under international law?
