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

Islamic Council Secretary U Tin Mg Than’s very good explaination about the misunderstandings

December 20, 2013

TQ very much…good job done. Because we just heard from others esp “OUT OF TEXT” I misunderstood and wrote the HARSH posting. Sorry for that. And I am the one who give the information I got to my brother Maung Maung and requested to write in Burmese. Sorry again for the misunderstanding with him. Problem is, if the leaders like you have give the information to the outside Activists in the forums we share, we could avoid this kind of misunderstanding. TQ.

They differ but little from the Arakanese except in their religion and in the social customs which their religion directs: in writing they use Burmese, but amongst themselves employ COLLOQUIALLY THE LANGUAGE OF THEIR ANCESTORS.

Rakhine MP U Aung Myat Kyaw (stupidly) said the racist rubbish words

October 13, 2013

Rakhine MP U Aung Myat Kyaw (stupidly) said that it would be good and there should be no problem if NGOs are careful and help fairly. There are few fair NGOs but there are a lot of bias NGOs. 90% of them are not doing anything for Rakhines. Because they had also done unfairly before, grievances and dissatisfaction grew. They totally reject the AZG….

My friend retorted that most of the Rakhines including the MPs are Racist idiots. Because of the Rakhine terrorists’ violence were on 90% of IDPs are Rohingyas and the NGOs need to help those 90% of people in-need.

‘We begged them not to kill us’ The Myanmar Times

By Aung Shin   |   Monday, 07 October 2013

Muslim and Buddhist residents have lived side-by-side in Thandwe’s Thabuchai village for generations. But that peace was shattered on October 2 when Buddhist mobs stormed the town, inflicting shocking damage on the normally quiet community.

Among the dead was Daw Aye Kyi, a disabled 95-year-old woman who was brutally stabbed in her own home. Her daughter, Daw Zaw Lay Kha, broke down in tears as she recounted how the family was forced to abandon Daw Aye Kyi in their escape from the mob.

ROEWENGYAS IN ARAKAN

I wrote about Rakhaing Kaman Muslims, the descendants of Shah Shujah’s followers in a previous article entitled “Shah Shujah in Arakan” which was published in this magazine vol: VI, No, 9 for the month of September 1965. Now I take great pleasure in writing about the Muslims who stepped into the soil of
Arakan and settled in the country before Shah Shujah took refuge with the Arakanese king Sandathudamma (1652-1684) in 1660.

Buddhist terrorismAfter putting the TRUTH Statement as cover picture, I am reported by the Racist Myanmar Military affiliated cyber-troopers. FB authorities act automatically without knowing that I AM JUST WRITING THE TRUTH.

Never mind I would not delete this cover pic for some time even if FB block or punish me.

Just look, on our Eid day, Myanmar Uniformed troops shoot and killed nearly half a dozen Rohingyas with a flimsy lame excuse.

United States Commission on International Religious Freedom: BURMA

May 1, 2013
BURMA Page 21| USCIRF 2013 Annual Report
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
FINDINGS:
Ongoing and important political reforms in Burma have yet to significantly improve the situation for freedom of religion
and belief. During the reporting period, most religious freedom violations occurred against et
hnic minority Christian and Muslim communities, with serious abuses against mainly Christian civilians during military interventions in Kachin State and sectarian violence by societal actors targeting Muslims in Rakhine (Arakan) State. In
addition, Buddhist monks suspected of anti-government activities were detained or removed from their pagodas, and at least eight monks remain imprisoned for participating in peaceful demonstrations. In addition to sometimes severe
restrictions on worship, education, and other religious activities and ceremonies, religious groups continue to face a range of problems, including: pervasive surveillance, imprisonment, discrimination, societal violence, destruction or
desecration of property, and censors hip of religious materials.
In light of these systematic, ongoing, egregious violations of freedom of religion and belief,
USCIRF recommends that Burma again be designated as a “country of particular concern” in
2013. The State Department has designated Burma as a CPC since 1999.
