In Myanmar, 3 Digits Instill Fear

Led by Buddhist Monks, ‘969’ Movement Gains Traction as Freer Speech Helps Whip Up Anti-Muslim Sentiment

By SHIBANI MAHTANI

Myanmar’s Muslims are coming to see the digits 969 as a harbinger of sectarian violence and a chilling reminder of their isolation and vulnerability.[image] Reuters A sticker of the ‘969 movement,’ which encourages Buddhists to shun Muslim businesses is seen at a shop in Minhla, Myanmar, in March.

The number defines a loose group of Buddhists led by influential monks who encourage their co-religionists, the majority in Myanmar, to boycott businesses of Muslims. The 969 group has been blamed, in part, for inflaming spasms of violence that killed more than 200 people and left more than 100,000 homeless in the past year, including a spate of attacks in the central part of the country in recent weeks.

Burney told The News: “The embassy has told me that they are not allowing journalists and human rights activists in the country. I am completely gutted. This action proves that Burma has something to hide from the world.

This action shows that reports of Muslims massacre in western Myanmar and Muslim Rohingyas are correct. I wanted to go there only to find facts about this case.”Burney had applied for visa last week and was told to collect it on Tuesday.

Mandalay by Rudyard Kipling

By the old Moulmein Pagoda, lookin’ lazy at the sea,
There’s a Burma girl a-settin’, and I know she thinks o’ me;
For the wind is in the palm-trees, and the temple-bells they say:
“Come you back, you British soldier; come you back to Mandalay!”
Come you back to Mandalay,
Where the old Flotilla lay:
Can’t you ‘ear their paddles chunkin’ from Rangoon to Mandalay?
On the road to Mandalay,
Where the flyin’-fishes play,
An’ the dawn comes up like thunder outer China ‘crost the Bay!
