Fake News helping Rohingya Terrorists

Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi has stated that the crisis in Rakhine state is being distorted by a “huge iceberg of misinformation”. She said that tensions were being fanned by fake news promoting the interests of terrorists.  Many fake news photographs are circulating. This creates a lot of problems between different communities and with the aim of promoting the interest of the terrorists”.  Fake news is generated primarily by the Western media and, as could be expected –  the media of Muslim countries. 

She has stated that her government had started defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible, and  “We know very well, more than most, what it means to be deprived of human rights and democratic protection. “So we make sure that all the people in our country are entitled to protection of their rights as well as, the right to, and not just political but social and humanitarian defence.”

It is a well known fact that the latest conflict was sparked on 25 August when Rohingya militants attacked police posts, triggering a military counter-offensive. The military says it is fighting against Rohingya militants who are attacking civilians.

Myanmar’s neighbours have come under criticism for not doing more to deal with the crisis. Bangladesh has previously refused to recognise the Rohingya as refugees, with Amnesty International accusing the country of sending people back to Myanmar to face an uncertain future. Recently the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in Myanmar meeting with Suu Kyi and said that he shared the Myanmar government’s “concern” about extremist violence in Rakhine State. Suu Kyi thanked Modi for his “strength” in regard to the “terrorist threat” her security forces were facing.  It was last month that Modi vowed to deport the 40,000 Rohingya living in India.

    Aung San Suu Kyi is a great leader. NOBEL PEACE PRIZE failed to turn her into an IDIOT like GORBACHEV.

    SL needs leaders like Aung San Suu Kyi.

    SL should stand by Aung San Suu Kyi and Myanmar.

    I in every country where people of Islamic faith live there is unrest especially when they are in the minority(.Needless to mention about the majority Muslim countries) This is because although they want enjoy all the modern gadgets, but they do not want to change their ancient ideology. They do want impose their lifestyle on non Muslims. Halal issue in Sri Lanka is one good example. The Muslims consumed non halal foods until recently and the non Muslims consumed halal beef goat, beef etc because slaughter of these animals were done mostly by Muslims. Only pork was not halal. Their were no issues nor health problems until some with radical beliefs started this nonsense.
    The Muslims, if they want live in peace and harmony need to adopt as necessary . They also want build mosques everywhere and shout over loudspeakers five times a day( how annoying ) reminding Muslims that they have to pray. Where in the Qua-ran does it say that. Loudspeakers are a recent invention. If they want that type of life, they can move the Muslim countries which are many.
    Muslims should not say “Islam is a religion of peace” unless they learn to live in peace.
    The truth is that most people living in Muslim countries want to go and live in the West because they do not like the strict rules in those countries but when once they go to the west they want to introduce the same rules the fled from.
    Another problem with the Muslims is that they seem to think of only going to paradise. If they learn to to live peacefully as good humans I have no doubt they will automatically go to heaven. This apply people of all other faiths too.
