Which countries will give citizenship, even if you are living there for centuries. Why the blind people saying Bengali Refugee Rohingas should be accepted as Burmese Citizenship. Are you people iditos or does not know how the different countries have different law in regards to Citizenship. Come on people, read the fact and figures of Burma History and it law.

Myanmar is the most racist country in the world. They deny someone citizenship of their country simply because they look different and follow a different way of life. May ask why then so many ethnic Burmese live outside of Burma?

Why don't you use the news footage by RFA Burmese in which Rohingya are setting fire on local houses and some armed with firearms? The riot area is concentreated with Rohingya population of up to 95%. Obviously, this agency rely on one sided view and biased.

Aung Mrin Soe from Norway :

Western news agencies including RFA based their news resource from Bangali muslims so-called Rohinja.They never ask or study two sides to write an article or news. It is too bad.Western countries and USA, they make most strictly upon muslims in their countries,but for other countries they always say human rights and democracy.I begin to doubt western democracy.

U Ngwe Win from YANGON :

In any country with neighbors we cannot avoid the problem of economic refugees or displaced people due to various reasons.In such societies,conflicts among different racial and religious groups are unavoidable.What happened in Rakhine(Arakan) State is the result of demographic overflow left neglected/mismanaged for decades.Racial and religious animosity are smoldering undercurrents nobody seriously tried to address until they reached to explosion.We have various security and law enforcement apparatuses along Western sector of our country,even naval units.We must conclude that we need more responsive and alert security setup.Political and civil society organizations in the area must also be involved in finding an amicable solution,not merely by brute force.

Hla min thu :

Why not study myanmar history? Rohingyar are not Burmese. We dont even share language,DNA and culture. Dont try to push us to accept these people as our race. I know that our government has been under bad image before. But in this case, our Burmese people are with our government. You all cannot force us to accept these bingali when the whole Burmese people and the government is against it. I bet you the majority of Burmese will not tolerate this.

What racists idiot. Thousands of Rakhines live in Bangladesh who are not part of main stream Bangali culture. Bangladesh recognize them as Bangladeshi Citizens. Mayanmar is the most racists country in the world. No wonder they have no democracy or respect for human rights.

Thousand of Rakhine living in Bangaladesh, and granted as citizenship, which we all know. But our Burma Government still accept them as Burmese if they want to come back to our land. But Bangaladesh government deny to take their own people Refugee Bangali Rohingas. Do you have documents that show these people live in our land before 1942 before British rules our country??? Non of them can present this, so Get Lost.

One has to discuss with outsiders who know the theology well. There are complex human refugee issues for sure in this situation.
