Brutality in Burma PDF Print E-mail

Amnesty describes the Muslims of Burma (called Rohingya) as the world’s most persecuted people. Recent attacks on Muslims there is the latest in a long history of oppression by the Buddhists.


RELIGION. Muslim Byat Wi was killed by King Mon in 1050 CE because he was a Muslim. The two sons of Byat Wi's brother Byat Ta were children executed because they refused to obey the forced labour order of the king, because of their religious beliefs.
King Bayintnaung (1550- 1589) prohibited Muslims from Islamically slaughtering goats and chickens. He forced them to listen to Buddhist sermons and disallowed Eidul Adha sacrifice.
King Alaungpaya (1752– 1760) prohibited Muslims from Islamic slaughter as well. King Bodawpaya (1782– 1819) arrested four famous Muslim Ulama and killed them after they refused to eat pork.
MERCILESS. Muslim settlements have existed in Burma since the arrival of Arabs in the 8th century. Following the Burmese conquest of Muslim Arakan in 1785, Burmese rulers executed and deported thousands of Muslims. In 1942, 5,000 Muslims were killed by Rakhine nationalists and Karenni.
The military, which has ruled Burma for 50 years, heavily persecuted Muslims. Burmese Muslims are described as ‘among the world’s least wanted’ and ‘one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.’ They have been stripped of Burmese citizenship since 1982. They are not allowed to travel without official permission, are banned from owning land and can't have more than two children. They are also subjected to various forms of extortion and taxation; land confiscation; forced eviction and house destruction; and financial restrictions on marriage. Muslims continue to be used as forced, slave labourers on roads and at military camps.
Thousands of Burmese Muslims are refugees in Bangladesh and Thailand where they are also unwelcome. Yet another corner of the world where Muslims are suffering.
