The Rohingya migrant crisis has been one of the most talked about issues in India and Bangladesh over the past few days. The Rohingyas have been displaced from their homeland in the Rakhine region of Myanmar after retaliation by the majority Buddhist population.
Although several human right’s activists are speaking for the Rohingyas, they seem to be missing one small point about the violent nature of this community and their history of violence. In fact, this is what triggered the violent response by the Buddhists in Myanmar, in order to protect their nation and their identity.
Myanmat Army strikes upon evidence of their violent nature
The Myanmar army today found a mass grave of over 28 Hindus who were slaughtered by the Rohingya Muslims in the Rakhine district. There has been a severe crackdown by the Myanmar Army from the 25th of August to restore peace in the region.
The statement on the website of the Myanmar Army’s Chief said, “Security members have found and dug up 28 dead bodies of Hindus who were violently tortured and killed by ARSA Bengali terrorists in Rakhine State”.
The statement further said that out of the 28 bodies, 20 bodies belong to women and 8 bodies were that of men. They further said that out of these 8 bodies of men, 6 of the bodies were of boys under the age of 10.
The Myanmar Government’s official spokesperson Mr Zaw Htay also confirmed the news. Further, an official in the police force said that each body had about 10 to 15 bullet holes.
These bodies were discovered in Ye Baw Kya, a Hindu village in Northern Rakhine district. Further, some villagers revealed that ARSA militants has raided the village on the 25th of August. The militants had killed several people and kidnapped several other women and children.
The battle against ARSA
The ARSA or Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army is the group which the Myanmar army is targeting to eliminate. The said group seeks to spread extremist Islamic ideology and has attacked several police outposts in the district in the past few months.
However, the irony seems to be that several of the liberal humanitarian activists who are hell bent upon Indian and Bangladesh accepting these Rohingyas seem to be conveniently forgetting their violent side. Organisations like ARSA are one of the main reason the majority Buddhist population in Myanmar felt a necessity to retaliate.
Rohingyas need to learn to be peaceful
Both the Government in Myanmar and the religious head have made it very clear that they are not against the Rohingyas, but only against their violent methods and unethical tactics to rule of the Buddhist majority. However, the Rohingya population does not seem to be interested in their offer. Organisations like ARSA continue to challenge the Army with gun power.
Even in other countries to where the Rohingyas are emigrating, they seem to be continuing with their terror and population expansion agenda. The alarming rate at which the Rohingyas are reproducing has become a nightmare for overpopulated countries like India where they are coming in huge numbers.
