Sithu from Yangon :

They pray to kill, slaughter, rape,behead and burn they think their god Allah approves of it.
They provoked this attack
and lying the world as they are innocent victims.
They burn their own houses and fleeing away to inform to the groups of islamic propaganda news reporters and pretend , lie the military torture, raped
killing women and children the whole destroyed village. That was the old tactic of 2012 events similarly. They buried the events of Truth by best dissemble acting intentionally. Completely ignorant of some people from UN members, Western journalists and muslims believed that they are the most innocent and persecuted victims in the World.

Thank you for reporting on the condition of the Rohingya in Burma (Myanmar). I appreciate your article "Rakhine Advisory Commission Discusses Maungdaw Violence With Myanmar Government."

In media reporting the Rohingya’s tragic suffering is sometimes misrepresented as communal violence, when in reality they are the victims of a persecution. Identifying the situation in Burma (Myanmar) accurately is very helpful.

Despite denial and contrary claims by the Burmese (Myanmar) government, seven Nobel laureates - Desmond Tutu, Mairead Maguire, Jody Williams, Tawakkol Karman, Shirin Ebadi, Leymah Gbowee, and Adolfo Pérez Esquivel- have described the persecution as a genocide, and along with the international community agree the Rohingyas are indigenous to Burma (Myanmar).

The Lowenstein Clinic, Yale University Law School, in their study to what is happening in Burma, amounts to “strong evidence” of genocide coordinated by the Burmese (Myanmar) government against the Rohingya people. It assessed evidence, including documents and testimonials provided by Al Jazeera and Fortify Rights.

Former Special Rapporteur Jose Quintana speaks of the movement towards genocide and the current rapporteur speaks of "worrying signs" of genocide.

While it seems clear that the idea of genocide is embarrassing to the international community, it cannot and should not be for writers, journalists and news outlets. They have an obligation to report the facts, and report free from the burden of geopolitics.

The Dalai Lama has publicly urged fellow Nobel Peace Laureate Aung Sun to speak out on behalf of the Rohingya community and help stem the violence in her country against Rohingya by Buddhist extremist groups.

There is no question that the human rights situation must be addressed. I greatly appreciate your article and am hopeful that the awareness it raises will contribute in stopping the ongoing genocide in Myanmar.
