November 21, 2013

If you want to accuse Muslims as coming in with British Colonialism… Just think a little bit..
India and Burma was the British owned lands, they even combined into one once, they had the right to bring or shift any SERVANTS anywhere…
Why do Bama leaders FAILED TO DEMAND the ruling British before getting Independence that YOU WANT the LAND ONLY not the people on that land?
IF you dare to say that, definitely British would give you the Bama majority areas ONLY as Burma.

Metamorphosing of Democratic Icon Daw Aung San Suu Kyi into Bigot Dictator?

October 25, 2013

Please read my article in Burma Digest using the Pseudonym SHWE BA  and shared in my San Oo Aung blog

Myanmar Folk Tale: Metamorphosis of Saviors into Monsters

Once upon a time, long long time ago, there was a village in a far away remote area of Burma called, let’s say, Shwe Bama village. Because of the constant disturbances of the wild beast, the villagers were wishing, praying and waiting for a hero to fight and kill the beast and to liberate them.

One day a prince came to the village and offered his self-less humanitarian voluntary service for the liberation of the village. The prince fought and successfully killed the beast, so the villagers thanked him and offered all the rewards including the right to rule their village. But later the kindhearted, handsome and noble prince surprisingly disappeared from the village. Worse of all, there also suddenly appeared a new ogre (giant) in the forest near the village. So the villagers were very sad and just prayed and wished for another warrior to help them.

RANGOON — Wimala Biwuntha is a pint-sized monk with boyish features who could barely see over the lectern during his recent sermon to a mesmerized crowd at a Rangoon monastery. Yet his stature in Burma grows daily, thanks to his stark message to fellow Buddhists: “We are digging our own graves.”

Marriage or Divorce? Democracy is the key to answer

Marriage or Divorce? Democracy is the key to answer by Henri-André Aye

The Panglong Agreement was an attempt to build a union out of desperate peoples. The agreement was a political marriage, trying to unite the Bamar and the non-Bamar to live together in peace and dignity. It was a marriage of political convenience — but one without love. And the honeymoon was short-lived as communist insurgency, Kuomintang invasion, and ethnic rebellion came knocking on the door.  A marriage without love could last but you can’t expect it to bring much harmony.  It did not work in the past. It does not work at present. It will not work in the future unless the climate of mistrust and animosity can fundamentally change. Otherwise, we should all admit that divorce is the proper answer.

Religious Freedom Report of Myanmar (Burma)

July 31, 2012

Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor International Religious Freedom Report for 2011

Burma

The constitution and other laws and policies restrict religious freedom. The government implemented considerable political reforms, but did not demonstrate a trend toward either improvement or deterioration in respect for and protection of the right to religious freedom. The government maintained restrictions on certain religious activities and limited freedom of religion, although it generally permitted adherents of government-registered religious groups to worship as they chose. While constraints on respect for and protection of the right to religious freedom continued, the community of Christian churches reported a notable easing of restrictions on church building and a positive relationship with the Ministry of Religion, including the ministry’s organization of interfaith dialogues. The government also passed a new law to protect freedom of assembly and procession and provided greater access to ethnic minority areas for U.S. officials and organizations.
