Myanmar government should take action on this kind of instigators

June 15, 2012

Myanmar government should take action on this kind of instigators.

Myanmars are brainwashed by successive Military Governments with repeated never ending HATE SPEECHES based on RACIST IDEAS, nowadays most of the Myanmars, from the uneducated to highly educated professionals think that it is nothing wrong to call a Muslim citizen with the derogatory name calling which is not tolerated in the CIVILIZED world.

This name calling is usually followed by dehumanization and discrimination. This is actually committing the CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

Now they are calling to assault on Muslims and Islam. Then they are aiming to commit GENOCIDE.

In more recent history, racism was manifested in the ill-treatment of coloured immigrants in post-war Europe, by the struggle of black leaders such as Martin Luther King in the US and most blatantly, in the late apartheid regime of South Africa.

World leaders should declare all-out war on Racial Discrimination

September 20, 2010

We understand about the demanding special privilege by some group e.g. people with military experience or those from majourity race and religion and at the same time actively looked down and discriminated on some groups based on ethnicity, religion and origin because we were at the receiving end in Myanmar. We thought we could escape by running away from Burma.

But we are wrong. Racial discriminations are everywhere.  But discriminations are EVERY WHERE, here, Thai, Singapore, ASEAN, OIC, EU, US up to UNHCR and UN.

I am a mixed blooded person, so what?

March 9, 2010

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in addressig the Farewell Hajj_

  1. “No Arab has any superiority over a non-Arab, nor does a non-Arab have any superiority over an Arab.
  2. Nor does a white man have any superiority over a black man or the black man any superiority over the white man.
  3. You are all the children of Adam, and Adam was created from clay” (al-Bayhaqi and al-Bazzaz).
  4. “Do not argue with the people of the Book (Christians and Jews) unless it is in the politest manners” (29:46)

I am a mixed blooded person, so what? Pure blooded race is Myth or Illusion of IDIOTS only! There is no pure race in the world.
