What is a country you would love to travel to? And why? For example:) 1.Vietnam 2.beautiful mountains? Myanmar For many years I chose not to go because of the military junta and it's oppression of the people and ethnic cleansing of the hill tribes Afew years ago it "open up" with electronic toons and a pseudo democratic system and things started looking up. I was planning to go but could not due to file reasons. Now I again refuse to go due to its ethnic cleansing of the Rohyinga.
Myanmar’s dream of defending the archaeological remains of Myanmar’s kingdom is now the heartland of the Rohingya Nirmalas?
What did the Pope do, in Rohingya, deserves all the attention lately? Rohinya is not a location, it's a people; A specific population of Muslims from Myanmar. They have fled the country due to ethnic cleansing, and the Pope is supporting them.
What did the Pope do, in Rohingya, deserves all the attention lately? He has been criticized for not naming the Rohingya people and their persecution, when visiting Myanmar (formerly Burma). He had good reason not to detail them, for what the world does not know is that another minority group there, the Christians, are being brutally persecuted too. He could not highlight the Muslim Rohingya without also highlighting the Christians. Some months ago the U Commission on International Religious Freedom produced a report on this, entitled "Hidden Plights: Christian Minorities in Burma", which makes for shocking reading. The army routinely occupies churches and summons entire congregations for interrogation. The army has near impunity even with sexual violence in church compounds and the torture of pastors, church workers and ordinary civilians. To date, approximately 120,000 Christians have been forced to flee. The military use Buddhism as a means of legitimising their oppressive rule, claiming to be defending Buddhism and the Barmar (Burmese) majority against Muslims and Christians. The military have empowered a group called "The Committee for the Protection of Race and Religion" (known as Ma Ba Tha) and other ultra-nationalistic monks, to incite violence and attacks on Christian pastors. The Kachin, Karen and Naga people groups are mainly Christian, and particularly in Chin State there is a majority of Christians. But a new threat the media is keeping quiet about is the rise of Jihadists in Myanmar, who are exploiting the troubled country in an effort to bring down the government and to institute Islam. In October 2016 an insurgency group called Harakah al Yaqin started attacking police posts in Rakhine state. Rohingya emigres based in Saudi Arabia created this group. The police response caused tens of thousands of Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh. On 25 August, Harakah al Yaqin attacked police posts, then the government launched 'clearance operations' against Rohingya, leading to recent atrocities against them (which the media HAS reported). Now Al Qaeda is urging jihadists to flock to the country. No wonder the pope has had to choose his public words carefully! But what deserves our attention is the horrific persecution of many minority groups, and the attempts of Islamic extremists to exploit the situation using the Rohingya as their excuse to make a caliphate out of Myanmar.
Wasn't the Left very upset when the Soviet Union collapsed? Yes. It caused the ethnic cleansing in Yugoslavia and the death of thousands
Lastly, should the responsibility of celebrating the Rohingyas be borne alone in Bangladesh? As per the sunnah, the Rohingya Muslims who can't fight should do hijrah out of Myanmar to a Muslim country, gather strength (and the surrounding Muslim countries assisting them in every way possible), then return to Myanmar to conquer it and subjugate the murderers/r4pists/oppressors.

What reasons are there for politicians not speaking out against persecution of the Rohingya? Politicians, in particular in the western world, are very quick to point out atrocities in the world. Usually it serves little political purpose and is merely a shameless attempt at scoring cheap points with the voters in their own countries, although however in some cases, some politicians do point out these events in an earnest attempt at forcing a political decision (foreign aid, for example). But in the case of the persecution and genocide of rohingians in Burma, little is being said. My question is why? What vested interests do western politicians have in not talking about this genocide and keeping it away from the political discourse? Certainly, had this been happening in North Korea against Americans or in Somalia against christians, we wouldn't hear the end of it.
