Burma Times: Let’s pressurize Myanmar to immediate stop fast growing Neo-Nazism in Myanmar! Nuremberg-like trial is essential for the Crimes against humanity. It is high possibly that within hardly few years, Rohingya will be extinct if the world does not give precedence to stop genocidal procedures against Rohingya of Myanmar regime.
Dhammaryun are subjective evidence of Neo-Nazism while 969 movements are objective evidence of Neo-Nazism. A Dhammaryun in every street and village is a phenomenon that took place the cooperation of former Socialist unit. During Socialist period of Burma, common people needed to queue for buying rice from the shop called cooperation for our families. It was a job for every family lining up in front of the shop since morning, sometimes people needed the whole day to buy rice, and in this way, regime made people to depend on them heavily, if anyone tried to oppose the regime, his family ration was cut off. The whole population was kept in the prison of fear by the regime of Burma, from 1960 to 1988.
After nation-wide protest for democracy against regime in 1988, military junta transformed all former cooperation shops into Dhammaryun, where some loyal persons of regime started organizing people. There were only 300000 monks in Myanmar before 1988, after 1988 the numbers increased more than 600000 out of which 70% is Rakhine. For every Dhammaryun, there is a group of Buddhists who collect donation every week for the monks, mostly Rakhine Buddhists organized it.
After 1988, being monk is a good business, because of those Dhammaryun and monks’ lectures from national TV and media, Buddhists people look very generous and piousin newly formedDhammaryun but in reality they develop a new type of Buddhism , ignoring essence of Buddhism and Siddhartha Gautama’s teaching.Everywhere we can see some Buddhists are collecting donations using silver bowls, 20% of donation is for the collectors. Before 1988, no monk could be seen in the street or in the market begging in public, now we can see everywhere.
Military junta committed murder, extermination of Rohingya history and monuments, forcibly deportation, rape, imprisonment and torture by its cruel team called NaSaKa. Military junta has been kept all Rohingya of Arakan in open prison since 1990. It tried their best to drive out all Rohingya from the Arakan using several cruel methods. When they failed in their program of expelling all Rohingya during Ne Win’s regime and military junta, Thein Sein Government used their last option of massacre. Thein Sein Government organized two horrible massacres against Rohingya in June and October 2012, after that 1million Rohingya have been kept under genocidal blockage.
Every street, every village, and ward of Burma, you could see advertisement of monks’ preaching in which there are 3 to 5 monks, at least 2 of them are 969 monks. As Ne Win used cooperation for the foundation of ultra-nationalism, military junta and Thein Sein’s so-called reform government has been using Dhammaryun and monks’ preaching to legalize their Neo-Nazism, formerly ultra-nationalism. Their main slogan are “Protect race and religion” “Drive all illegal Bangali immigrants” and “Be aware of non-Buddhists”
During Thein Sein government, State successfully conducted all Ne Win’s unsuccessful programs against non-Buddhists with the help of international aids. Especially, lifting sanctions and recognizing regime in civilian dress, strengthens Thein Sein Government to ignore international laws, INGOs, and continues human right violations in Burma.
Ministry of Religious Affairs of the Thein Sein regime in civilian dress would finish drafting the religious conversion bill, population control bill, restrictions on interfaith marriage bill and protect race and religion bill. All those bills are based on Neo-Nazism, they are neither from the sources of Buddhism nor necessary reforms for the peace and development of the country. Thein Sein Government pointed out 1million signatures backing the bills and has been trying to pass resolution in the parliament where 90% of the members are regime’s followers.
Ne Win had used his apartheid policy in the name “Indigenous Rights” hanging discriminatory slogan “No nation swallowed up by a fissure appearing on Earth but people can easily swallow up the nation” in every immigration department office of Burma. The slogan is still visible in every immigration office. Ne Win had been using it for his Barmanization and persecution against non-Buddhists.
Denying Rohingya’s existence, to register them according to Census law, attacks on INGOs including UN, ignoring international laws and statements are main policy of Neo-Nazism in Burma.
Human rights should always be on the top of the agenda for every democratic country. Denying the term Rohingya, even abundance of official document are available, keeping 1million Rohingya under genocidal blockage, persecuting them to leave the country, and drafting bills against non-Buddhists are characteristics of Neo-Nazism, not democracy reforms.
Since June 2012, nearly 20000 Rohingya were either killed or missing from KyaukPyu, MinPya, Kyauktaw, Pauktaw, MyayBon, and Sittwe of Arakan Burma. As State preplanned for all violence in Burma, most of the crime evidences were cleared by the State systematically; victims were accused of terrorists and sentenced imprisonments. Rohingya are dying daily lack of nutrition and medical access under genocidal blockage of Arakan.
The World should take immediate action against the fast growing Neo-Nazism in Burma and bring all criminals to the Nuremberg like trial for the sake democracy and peace in Burma otherwise it may be a horrible regional human disaster. 1000s of information regarding crimes against humanity are available in 100s of internet webpages, variety of organizations, HRW reports and other authentic international reports. Why does the World keep silence? During Nazi period in Germany there was no international law, no criminal court for the crimes against humanity; now the World has all potentialities to stop Neo-Nazism and the purpose of UN is to maintain World’s peace and security.
