A Lesson from the Past: the fate of the Karen Revolutionary Council

A Lesson from the Past: the fate of the Karen Revolutionary Council

A year ago in April 2009 Burma’s military rulers proposed that all seventeen armed cease-fire groups transform their armies into Border Guard Forces (BGF) administered by the junta. Tension has increased in recent months between the Burmese military and the New Mon State Party (NMSP) and other ethnic resistance groups who have rejected the regime’s order to transform their armies into a border guard force.

According to local news, the armed wing of the New Mon State Party, the Mon National Liberation Army, has relocated all its ammunition and military hardware to a more secure area obviously in preparation for a conflict. Pressure from the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) to coerce the cease-fire groups into the BGF unavoidably means that the NMSP will be preparing for the worst.   Now is a timely reminder to look back on history.

To whom it may concern in USA Government and authorities in Fort Wayne, Indiana State

To whom it may concern in USA Government and authorities in Fort Wayne, Indiana State.

Reference: Complaint about Ven Ravika, Mon Monk living in Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA

Dear Sir/Madam,

May your honours kindly allow me to complaint about the above named person, Myanmar National originally from Mudon, Mon State, Myanmar, residing at Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA. His Face Book Account is @

As he is believed to be a Mon Buddhist Monk and is a very popular activist amongst Myanmar and Mon Buddhist Democrats, his Racist Bigot Hate Speeches are detrimental to the mixed blooded people and non-Buddhists in Myanmar. Once he wrote that the Chins (soldiers) are non-Bama Christians and are wild and primitive people (soldiers). I have attached the original screenshots of his Hate Speeches against the mixed blooded Indian and Chinese below with the translation in English.


Myanmar’s ‘old man’s land’ seeks new lease of life

Myanmar’s ‘old man’s land’ seeks new lease of life

They call it “Old Man’s Land” — ravaged by conflict and economic deprivation, Myanmar’s southeast Mon state is a place bereft of its young, who have flooded overseas in search of work.

But with a reformist government now promoting peace and economic development in impoverished border areas, the region is now looking to its future — and its lost youth.

The rural Mon community of Ywarthit is a place for the old and the very young. Locals say around 70 percent of households are missing the generation in between.

Many teenagers leave once they have finished school, crossing the border into Thailand to seek work in factories or as domestic helpers.

Everything seems peaceful in Moulmein, the Mon state capital on the southern coast of Burma, in spite of the profusion of “969” logos plastered around the city. In a gold shop in the central market, the sticker – a religious symbol that represents the three jewels of Buddhism — figures prominently above a small shrine devoted to Buddha.

Current Situation of Okkan (2:40 pm)

M-Media March 28, 2013

“Some people have fled since yesterday. Two buses of soldiers from Taikkyi have arrived here. Township Administration officer is also present.

There is nothing unusual. We were worried about the sermon done last night. But the monk who preached last night was good, he didn’t say anything propagating against religions.” A local from Okkan said to M-Media.

In Okkan, there have been sermons arranged by the 969 sect, and people are worried of the day that will end the sermons, 29th March. Letters of threat have been received which says that Muslim villages will be set on fire.

January 26, 2013

One revered monk ring up to me this morning,

” What you all are doing?
Do you never hear anything?
Why keep quiet and never do anything?
I know that you have something like an Islamic Organization, right?
What are they doing?
Haven’t you all ever heard the news from Karen State?
Never heard the news from Tachileik, Shan State?
Haven’t the news from Mon State arrived to you?
Another wave (of Anti-Muslim violence) is not in Rakhine State!

Origin of Burmese Indians


The “Hindi” are the people who speak Hindi language which is an Indo-Aryan language. There are conflicts between the Urdu speakers (mostly Muslims) and the Hindi speakers (mostly Hindus). The Hindi speakers are divided into a number of ethnic and social groups.

We all are migrants and mixed blooded in Myanmar

Humans lived in the region that is now Burma as early as 11,000 years ago, but archeological evidence dates the first settlements at about 2500 BCE with cattle rearing and the production of bronze. By about 1500 BCE, ironworks were in existence in the Irrawaddy Valley but cities, and the emergence of city states, probably did not occur till the early years of the Common era when advances in irrigation systems and the building of canals allowed for year long agriculture and the consolidation of settlements.[2]
