#Myanmar Government and Rakhine authority’s preplanned #Rohingya#Genocide continues Since June 2012, 1000s of Rohingya were killed


#Myanmar Government and Rakhine authority’s preplanned #Rohingya#Genocide continues 
Since June 2012, 1000s of Rohingya were killed, 1000s of Rohingyas’ houses were burnt down, 1000s of their properties were looted, and Myanmar Government keeps 1million Rohingya under blockage without means of survivals; no job, no medication, no school, and no chance to find food. More than 140000 Rohingya became IDP UN registered refugees and 20000 unregistered refugees. WFP and other organization give rice and beans but they don’t provide other necessaries such as onion, oil, wood for cooking. 
Today morning, 3 Rohingya from Nga Theit Chang refugee camp, Santetmaw of Pauktaw, went to find wood for cooking in the mountain. Till 2 o’clock afternoon, when they didn’t return, another 3 refugees went to find them. When they reached near mountain they saw blood on the ground, and came back to the camp, after that, another 20 refugees went to find them, they saw one dead body, Nur Husein, son of Saleh Ahmed 45 years old whose private part was cut, while he was bringing by them Rakhine security forces open fired to them to take back the dead body. 5 Rohingya hit bullets; Salim, son of Sayad Alam died on the spot and another 4 wounded, Badi Alam, son of Kasim Ali 34 years old and Ismail,son of Ukil Ahmed, 55 years old are very serious, they are under MRF for treatment now. 
I apologized for my tweets in which I wrote 4 died and 3 missing, when Nur Husein’s wife called me she was crying and phone line was not very clear, I called 3 different persons and confirmed the true story.
2 died 2 missing, one was killed by terrorists in the mountain, and another was killed by security forces to give back the dead body. Many Rohingya believe that terrorists in the mountain were either ALP or Rakhine security forces. They believe 2 missing Rohingya would be killed by terrorists. As they don’t have internet and they can’t send photos, reliable media should go urgently there to investigate the event. 
Now Rakhine are organizing to attack refugee camp at night time, Rohingya Refugees are in fear, no security, for Rohingya, Rakhine security forces and Rakhine terrorists are the same.
Killing and disappearing without a trace of Rohingya becomes a routine daily. 100s of Rohingya were missing, no one has a exact list of missing Rohingya. 
In Maungdaw, more than 600 Rohingya are missing within two weeks, some Rohingya brokers organized those to send Malaysia. As I mentioned before 3 boats sank or was sunk intentionally. When people asked the following brokers they denied organizing. Many people went to police to arrest them but instead of arresting those police scolded them. Those brokers names are:
1. Muhammad Ayub , son of Thahir,25 yearsold, lives in Shidda Ywa of Maungdaw.
2. M.V Ibrahim, 27 years old from Alay Than Kyaw Maungdaw, he has a shop in big market of Maungdaw, shop No.16C-1/2
3. Abdu Salam @ Kalamiah, 33years old, from Naya Fara(Gadu Sara)
4. Karimullah 28 years old, son of Abu Siddik, 28 years old from Italia of Maungdaw
Many Rohingya believe that blocking, using Rohingya brokers to persuade uneducated and abject poor Rohingya for leaving, sinking boat one after another, are being arranged by Rakhine authority systematically with the help of central Government. International Media and Observers should come to Arakan as soon as possible to figure out the reality. 
As Myanmar Government and Rakhine authority deny existence of Rohingya, they think missing, dying, leaving of Rohingya are not their responsibilities, it is responsibilities of Bangladesh. Many respected World leaders came to Myanmar to restore Rohingya’s right but Myanmar Government is still denying existence of Rohingya and killing, torturing, forcing Rohingya to leave the countries by Myanmar and Rakhine authority continues. Does no one have power on Earth to stop it? Those who hesitate to say Genocide in Burma! Could you please tell me what do you call this kind of inhumane persecution in your language?
Thank You

#Myanmar #Dictators and #Universal#Declaration of #Human #Right
Myanmar Dictators and Rakhine authority have been treating Rohingya of Arakan really very badly against every Article of Universal Declaration of Human Right. Who are responsible to restore Rohingya’s right?
Article 1
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights but in Burma Rohingya are born as slaves, grown up under blockage and persecution.
Article 2
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in the Universal Declaration Human Right, without distinction of any kind, such as race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. But Rohingya have no right and freedom at all who are responsible to restore their right.
Article 3
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person. But Rohingya cannot live their own place, their properties were looted by Dictators’ special trained 969 gangs and Awakyuntha Bengali Rakhine Buddhists, there is no security for Rohingya.
Article 4
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms but for Myanmar dictators, slavery of Rohingya is legal.
Article 5
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment but Myanmar dictators and Rakhine have been torturing Rohingya since 1970s, who is responsible to stop it.
Article 6
Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law. But Myanmar authority, Myanmar leaders do not recognize Rohingya as human being like other human on Earth, according to Myanmar authority Rohingya have no right to find food, to get medication in the hospitals, no travel from one place to another, Rohingya must be kept under the blockage-cage.
Article 7
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. In Myanmar, there is a special specific law called state or regional law ,for Rohingya as to wipe out Rohingya name first, then all Rohingya slowly.
Article 8
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law. According to 1947 Constitution of Burma Rohingya are indigenous of Burma, Rohingya deserve full equal right but Dictators have been denying Rohingya’s existence. The winner of Nobel Prize, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi who was rewarded for the act of human right, now denies Rohingya’s existence even her father appointed two Rohingya scholar to draw 1947 constitution.
Article 9
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile. Rohingya are arbitrary arrested daily, 4000 innocent Rohingya are kept in jail, detention and millions of Rohingya were forced to leave the country.
Article 10
Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him but Myanmar Government and Rakhine State authority have been conducting completely against it by charging Rohingya victims whose houses were burnt down, whose properties and lands were confiscated.

Article 15.

Syrian crisis leaves children at risk of starvation

#URGENT! Plz read! 2save the life of18yr old #boy 2b #executed n #Iran @GreenQuran




article Clipped+Pasted Below:

"It has been brought to our attention by a highly credible source in Karoon prison in the province of Khuzestan that the execution of death row prisoner Maher Ayashi who was transferred to solitary confinement on Sept 22nd, 2013, in preparation for his final sentence is now imminent. Maher who is now 18 years old was sentenced to death by execution for a crime he committed when he was only 16 years old. Executions at Karoon prison typically take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so it is imperative that we ACT NOW!

We are asking all human rights and civil rights activists to please bring attention to Maher's case by contacting Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif via his facebook and twitter pages or via email (twitter : @jzarif - Facebook :Javad Zarif (public figure) email: zarif@mfa.gov.ir) requesting that 1) Iran stop the imminent execution of juvenile offenders and 2) appealing to the foreign minister to request that the judiciary order the stay of Maher's execution so that his case can be reviewed, his sentence overturned and his life saved.
Thank you for your support.

A true story of three brothers of Burma : #Buddhism, #Islam& #Christianity


Article has been cut from: "TwitLonger — When you talk too much for Twitter" and pasted below:

"
#Buddhism, #Islam& #Christianity
I would like to express three brothers true story of Burma in socio-religious point of view, representing Myitta for Buddhism, Nyein Chan for Islam and Garunar for Christianity. Myitta means compassion, Nyein Chan means peace and Garunar means kindness in Burmese language.
Before I write the story of three brothers, I would like to explain briefly how these three brothers came into Burma and what did they do.
Every human race is like a tree which has its roots or seeds in the past and its fruits or results in the future. Until 11th century AD, there were Upper Myanmar and Arakan kingdom, separately existed in Burma. It is not easy to know exactly about pre-historic era, to collect detail information of ancient Burma, investigation of anthropologists, sociologist, geologists, historians, linguistic scholars and archeologists is essential for certain investigations.
There were waves of migration into Burma before Buddhism was founded. Geographically, first migration was Indo-Aryans who believed in Brahmanism, physically Indian features, established kingdom in Arakan.
The first historically recorded inhabitants of Upper Burma were Mon, who settled in the Irrawaddy Delta and along the Gulf of Martaban in 6th century BC, flourishing cultural and economic links with India. First Mon king, Rajadhirat, an Indian feature with an Indian name, established first kingdom named Suvarnabhumi, which means golden land in Indian language.
From 1st century AD, the Pyus settled in central Burma; Pyu had built towns in Srikksetra, Maingmaw, Veikthano( come from Vishnu , an Hindu god). Up to 9th century AD, the only main group dominated in Burma and Arakan, were Indo-Arayan. When Brahmanism was popular in Indian sub-continent, people who lived in Burma and Arakan believed in Brahmanism , when Hinduism developed in Indian sub-continent, it reached into Arakan and Burma through missionaries. Buddhism was introduced into Burma by King Asoka’s missionaries in 300 BC. Until 9th AD, India featured people who believed in Brahmanism, universal spirit, Hinduism and Buddhism, lived in Arakan and Burma. We can see hundreds of Indian type historical monuments which remain stand till now. When Islam was rapidly spreading in Middle East and South west Asia, Muslim introduced their faith to the people of Arakan , and central Burma , through trading. These traders built Badar Mukaam along the coastline as guest house and Mosque.
In the 9th century, a Chinese scholar ,Fan Chuo wrote (Manchu: Book of the Southern Barbarians) about Nanzhao and colorful ethnography of its tribes who were mostly simple fold, goat herds, and shepherd , in the process of drifting south ward , over the rugged mountains and into the blistering plain of central Burma. In 832, Nanzhao destroyed the city of Thanlin, a Pyu city-state, while he made invasion into Burma. Tibeto-Burman groups started mixing with original Indo-Aryan.
In 849, Bagan was founded as a fortified settlement, 200 years later , Began became the center of a great kingdom. In 1044, Anawratha (Aniruddha ,an Indian name) seized the throne as a teenager after falling his cousin in single combat. He unified the Irrawaddy valley under a single sovereign and created a kingdom that matched fairly close the borders of Burma today.
In thirteenth century, Burma was under control of Mongolian King’s distant authority of Xanadu and Peking. During that period, many mongoloids settled down in Burma. In 16th century AD, King Bayinnaung built second Burmese Empire and trade with neighboring countries developed, especially Arabs , Portuguese , British, French, and Dutch trading were established in Burma in 17th century AD.
Hsinbyusin, Alaungpaya's son , invaded Siam and destroyed Ayuthia in 1767. His brother, Bodawpaya, conquered Arakan and eradicated Arakanese Kingdom. Burma became British colony after three Anglo-Burmese wars, in 1824, 1852, and 1885. During colonial period, Christian missionary groups reached every corner of Burma, helped poor and sick people, many missionary people died because of malaria in Shan State, Kayin State, Chin and Kachin State. No missionary people forced local Burmese people to convert Buddhism or Islam or Christian in Burma. Most of the Kayin, Kachin, Chin and Shan people became Christians because of kindness offered by missionary groups. No Christian foreigners came and settled here; local ethnic people converted Muslims and Christians freely.
During Second World War, Thakin Aung San, Father of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, formed Thirty Comrades, went secretly to Japan to ask help and training for removing British from Burma but Japanese were ruthless. On July 19, 1947, General Aung San and six cabinets including Muslim U Razak and his security Yebaw Ko Htwe were assassinated.
General Aung San was sincere, honest, and just person who respected equal right for all ethnic groups of Burma. The main reason of assassination was ultra-nationalism and racism. There were people like notorious dictator, Ne Win and Buddhist racist, U Nu near General Aung San. In a meeting, some ultra-nationalists opposed U Razak being in the cabinet but 10 monks from Mandalay threatened that “If U Razak was not appointed as a Minister in the cabinet because of religion, Islam, we would protest nation-wide. “General Aung San went around the country to grantee equal right for every ethnic group; he went to Akyab (Sittwe) and promised Rohingya for equal right in 1946.
After independence, when some ultra-nationalists refused providing equal right based on religion, a peaceful demonstration by Kerens all over the country was staged on February 11, 1948, in which over 400,000 Kerens took part. The banners carried in the procession contained four slogans, namely: Give the Karen State at once, show the Barman one kyat and the Karen one kyat, we do not want communal strife and we do not want civil war.
Three brothers; Myitta, Nyein Chan and Garunar said:
We three brothers have five essential principles: respect, compassion, refraining from what is evil, security, and abandonment of lawlessness and obedience to the law. The beauties of belief, truth, light, flowers, spirit, forms, affection, justice, and compassion of all three brothers differ from one another.
We know that various writers had an influence on the writing of their Scriptures. These writers re-ordered their Scriptures at different times and changed original essence of their religions. Despite their Scriptures being changed by men, they have in part preserved the original true basics of belief.
If God had so willed, He would have made us a single people, but His plan is to test us in what He has given us; so we need to strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of ours is all to God; it is He who show us the truth of the matters in which we dispute.
The first essential thing for our peaceful coexistence is mutual acceptance of the existence of the all religions, steps may be taken after the differences are mutually known, recognized and accepted. Even if it is not easy on our ears, it is still extremely constructive. Understanding God's wishes and commands, and putting forward joint values, and realizing mankind's happiness is only possible in that way.
To serve the happiness of mankind, the persons whose moral values serve not only the members of one religion but the members of all religions, they should be supported in unlimited fashions and strengthened in whatever way possible; everything is subject to change and development. As we advance in age, we have to develop our knowledge and find new ways. If we take up a position on the side of justice in the world and against injustice, we could do many things so that good should dominate in the world. We have to bury the mistakes and errors of the past in the past and turn our eyes to the future. For the problems of the world are gradually growing and becoming more complicated; we can only solve these problems together.
One day, three brothers had a discussion as follow:
Myitta: Principle of mine is compassion; I came into existence because of caste system, a discriminatory system of India. Discrimination is not my attitude, whoever has that attitude, is not one of us.
Brahma Sahampati descended from the heavens and, having worshiped the Blessed One, said: "Alas! the world must perish, should the Holy One, the Tathagata, decide not to teach the Dharma. Be merciful to those that struggle; have compassion upon the sufferers; pity the creatures that are hopelessly entangled in the snares of sorrow. There are some beings that are almost free from the dust of worldliness. If they hear not the doctrine preached, they will be lost. But if they hear it, they will believe and be saved."
Preach the doctrine which is glorious in the beginning, glorious in the middle, and glorious in the end, in the spirit as well as in the letter. We reach the immortal path only by continuous acts of kindliness and we perfect our souls by compassion and charity."
The Buddha said: "He who deserves punishment must be punished, and he who is worthy of favor must be favored. Yet at the same time, Buddha taught to do no injury to any living being but to be full of love and kindness. These injunctions are not contradictory, for whosoever must be punished for the crimes which he has committed, suffers his injury not through the ill-will of the judge but on account of his evildoing. He who has cast away ill-will; he dwells with a heart free from ill-will; cherishing love and compassion toward all living beings, he cleanses his heart from ill-will.
Nyein Chan: My root is peace, whenever I greet someone I say “Peace be upon you”. Peace and peacemaking are my tradition as part and parcel of human development. According to me, ideal society is “the house of peace” called Dar as-Salam.
There was a golden era of mine in which justice, abundance, well-being, security, peace, and brotherhood prevailed among humanity. Whoever met it experienced love, self-sacrifice, tolerance, compassion, mercy, and loyalty, and saved the World from chaos, injustice, and moral collapse.
Although Buddhists are building monasteries and pagodas in every corner of our country, building Christians churches and Mosques are forbidden. There is fear that the Christians and Muslims may enter among the Buddhists and cause harm. We certainly have no such intention at all.
We have many joint values which bring us closer to one another: religiousness, right, neighbors’ rights, solidarity, helping the needy, looking after the poor and the sick, members of the family loving, respecting, and being tied to one another, hospitality, etc. Compassion has a large place in our religion.
Wherever there is a war and starvation in the world, we are compelled to work without looking at people's religion and color in order to find solutions. However, the joint values of Buddhists, Muslims and Christians must not remain only in the field of social aids; we should strive to win back the ultra-nationalists to peaceful coexistence by living our religions together in model fashions.
There is no compulsion in religion. We should be living examples to people who are distant from religions by living as we believe. Rather than trying to remove the differences between our religions, we should co-operate in thought over shared matters.
For the Qur'an combines in itself the virtues of all the previous books and the essentials of all the previous religions; non-Muslims should possess the same rights as Muslims in Islamic countries, so that non-Muslim states should behave towards Muslims in the same way.
Garunar: Jesus came on Earth for the salvation of humanity. I love everyone because my Bible says; love is of God, and everyone who has love is a child of God and has knowledge of God.
No man has ever seen God: if we have love for one another, God is in us and his love is made complete in us. If a man says, I have love for God, and have hate for his brother, his words are false: for how is the man who has no love for his brother whom he has seen, able to have love for God whom he has not seen? There is no fear in love: true love has no room for fear, because where fear is, there is pain; and he who is not free from fear is not complete in love. We still have faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
If a man has this world's goods, and sees that his brother is in need, and keeps his heart shut against his brother, how is it possible for the love of God to be in him? Let this be my last word, brothers; be glad; be complete; be comforted; be of the same mind; be at peace with one another: and the God of love and peace will be with you.
We can establish friendship in political, social, and economic fields without harming religious beliefs.
Religious differences can be accepted to a degree that causes no harm to living together. However, minorities interfering from the point of view of religion in the government and constitution of a state are in every respect outside this question.
We should conduct "competing in good works", and especially the joint struggle against irreligion, comes before securing unity and forming a single community.
While carrying out this service, no religion should take a path saying, "Only I am right." This partnership is something much higher than the mutual tolerance, everyone has right to say “my religion is best” but no one should say “only my religion is the best”. Therefore, we Christians willingly open up our churches for Buddhists and Muslims to perform their worship in. If this action of ours affords strength to our joint struggle against irreligion, why should we not perform our worship jointly?
Ultra-nationalists, racists, Nazis of Burma accuse that Christians and Muslims are foreigners, invaders and enemies of Burma. Burmese notorious dictator, Ne Win nationalized all properties of foreigners, some of the Christians and Muslims in 1962, and drove all foreigners out of the country. Dictator Ne Win, then, divided the country seven divisions and seven states, established discriminatory laws and policies, started persecution and genocidal plans against Rohingya, Christians and Muslims of Burma.
