Hay fire continues to burn. Meanwhile the candle lights are dancing in the blow of wind and it could catch fire to anything in its neighbor. All these spark of hay fire and candle flame could be costly to us, likely to burn down our whole country.
Flame of Burning Hay – During the recent Rakhine unrest, Myanmar people introduced the terrorists and illegal immigrants to the ‘Rohingya’ word with the hashtags # on their news feeds in Twitter. At that time there were approximately 50 people who against and 5 people who were supporters to Rohingyas. But now supporters and organizations from Islamic countries are distributing the misinformation to the world with the false news alerts via Twitter. While they are feeding the thousands of false news alerts, in Twitter, with the photos from the ungenuine source such that the Tibetan monks were dead in the earthquake as the Muslims Rohingyas being ruthlessly murdered and genocide by the local Rakhinese in the late Rakhine riot, WHERE are our people who stand against the wrong and respond to the false propaganda? Are we all burnt in the growing hay fire of their efforts and disappeared in the flame of their propaganda?
Flame of Candlelight – The flame is always drifted to all directions as the wind blows it. There is no sense of direction for the flame to move, nor can it stand still and make the wick its centre if the wind is passing by. To continue, the last communal strife in Rakhine had shed light on that there are backstabbing national traitors and both internal and external agitators to the legitimate of our country. It was implied by that the old photos of people dead in the unfortunate incidents happened in Sudan and all over the world were abused that the dead people in the photos are Muslims Rohingyas being murdered in the last Rakhine riot. Following is the link of evidence. (http://www.afrik.com/article20308.html)
a fake news spread in Social network
Sadly some people believe their false propaganda. Therefore people especially Myanmars are warned to keep your ability, at all times, of characterizing and separating the good to the evil in disguise, without trailing after someone who are injecting the thought of poison and hatred into your lives. Playing the acts of follow-my-leader or follow- any-person (who share same conception to oneself) would only lead you to jumping to the senseless conclusion based on the misleading photos, taking away your thorough analysis and wisdom. Instead, do more research on the news, and let yourself see the truth. Don’t be like the candle flame. Be a shepherd, instead of the meandering sheep.
Destructive Fire of Bengalis Immigration – Bengalis so-called Rohingyas in Myanmar set ablaze to the houses of local Rakhines, killed and destroyed the thousands of lives in June 2012. Now in July 2012 the fire of communal strife is born in Assam by its Bengalis residents. Its roaring flame of violence and anger is rose up to the sky, costing the deaths of many people and destroying millions of lives. These Bengalis however got the huge beneficial supports from the individuals and private organizations from the Islamic countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Malaysia, Indonesia and Bangladesh. These supporters feed the news to the world that Muslims are only victims, fragile and always prone to various brutal violations. So we need to think why some of them deeply involve in helping the Bengalis Rohingyas. In additions to their humane sympathy and sincere helps to the same religion followers, there would be some self-interests and –profits lie behind the mask of kindness. In Myanmar, the unjust struggle of Bengalis Rohingyas supporters is to get the territories of Buthithaung and Maungdaw of Rakhine state free from Union of Myanmar government and put these regions under their self-government, and then continuously achieve the whole Rakhine province of Myanmar as their autonomous state. The aspect of Islam Religion is also suspected of playing a big role in this scheme. One possibility is the process of Islamization to Myanmar which has the large population of Buddhists. Lately, on the other hand, Islam is widely and also partially accused of the religion of terrorism and Muslims as the terrorists. So it could be that some Muslims are trying to navigate the global focus on the subject of extremism, fear and terrorism from Islam to Buddhism which has been internationally recognized as the peaceful religion over 2,500 years ago, since it has emerged in the world. The forces or violence or killings never happen, for the Buddhism itself and also the influence of this religion to another. So it could be the reason why some people with strong religious faith try to stain the purity of Buddhism image in the world religions. Or this religion related plot could be only the sub-part and stepping stone to accomplish their real target which is to shift the world focus from the Islamic countries to others and remove or lessen the international pressure on the issues of these countries including Libya, Iran, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan.
Our country - the citizens and also people who regard themselves as Myanmars have already made themselves perfectly clear that they completely oppose to the Bengalis issues on many social media platforms and their good endeavor contribute the growing concerns in their particular communities. But the overall endeavor is still deprived of investing more physical, mental and intellectual efforts to match the more advanced levels counter-plays of the Bengalis supporters. Rather than just replying and arguing in Burmese as the patriot and for the love to country, we need to uncover the news of truth to the world with many various languages available and accessible for different language users to let them realize what is sham and what is reality. We need to reach out to as much parts of the world as possible.
Apparently the most important of all, and also the most unsatisfying fact is the performance of the Ministry of Information which did not deliver the news of truth about the late Rakhine unrest to the world and, even worse, is absent of reflexes on hitting back the constantly throwing balls of false Bengalis propagandas of the recent Rakhine violence. They spread the make believe news along with some photos unrelated to Rakhine violence and made-up stories to the world. Some photos with the unpleasant scenes that they label as “Muslim being killed brutally” are, in fact, that of Rakhinese victims. No morality left for them to deplete as it seems, they abuse the photos of Rakhinese victims being slaughtered and deadly injured by Bengalis, in which Rakhinese victims in photos are described as the Bengalis culprits. A downright silence of Myanmar Ministry of Information delivers a double whammy to these Rakhinese victims. As if dismay and horror they suffer is not enough, this effect of widespread fake news with the abused photos adds insult to their injuries and other citizens. Meanwhile, the increasingly evident activities in overseas with photos of the foreigners’ setting aflame to our national flag and posters of our President are constantly carried on. So astonished have we been that such acts has not even remotely imposed the warning signal to the Ministry of Information to react in a slightest way. Their silence treatment now also brings the huge disgrace to the country in the international community, and is like a two-edged sword cutting the hearts of citizens even deeper.
