Rohingya: Islam's Bloody Borders

As always, the Muslims of Burma are victims of their own warfare against ‘polytheists’-

Malaysia must make a stand on the Rohingya

The UN and the OIC must immediately intervene to end the atrocities and bring the Myanmar perpetrators to justice.

Aside from the spiritual clash which marks so many other “bloody” borders (as Samuel Huntington calls them), there seems to be no possible reconciliation between the monotheists  (Muslims) and polytheists of the world. The polytheists hold the money while the monotheists suffer untold miseries arising from lack of economic as well as educational equity.

“The polytheists hold the money while the monotheists suffer untold miseries….?”

Without understanding the parasitic and retarded Islamic system one could almost feel sorry for the soldiers of allah. What this lawyer is actually saying is that the wealth of unbelievers belongs to the believers who have every right to take it, by any means. Lets hope the Burmese are not as soft as the Thais and the Philippinos.

RUNNING north to south along the Myanmar-Bangladesh border, a forgotten ethnic minority group of the modern world – the Rohingya – are dying by the thousands. According to witnesses, hundreds have been turned away by authorities in neighbouring Bangladesh after attempting to flee the fighting in Myanmar.

The Rohingya are Muslims and have never been granted citizenship or any other right by the Buddhist Myanmars, who don’t want them and have always tried to force them over to Bangladesh.

And now, Malaysia is caught in a dilemma, for there is no way her vociferous support of Myanmar’s Asean membership can be considered sincere unless she also brings to bear every possible humane effort to give the Rohingya their religion and their land.

Will Bangladesh not accept these homeless people as part of her own Islamic heritage? Evidently not, since the language of Bangladesh is Bengali, which has its own literature, laws and arts, which do not appear to be contiguous with that of the Rohingya.

So the Rohingya dilemma is a dilemma for all Muslims, since they cannot be forcibly disowned without the means to form their own government and polity.

Only the true generosity of the Muslim ummah could conceivably rescue the Rohingya, just as the Americans have become considerable benefactors of the Vietnamese nationhood, or the Germans, Japanese or Europeans before them.

In the back halls of diplomacy, therefore, the Malaysian government can have no other position than that of urging nationhood upon the Rohingya, from wherever it may come.

The UN and the OIC must immediately intervene to end the atrocities and bring the Myanmar perpetrators to justice. Asean welcomed Myanmar into its midst at a time of considerable conflict over the Myanmar governmental system, and the Asean ideal of non-intervention cannot now be waived on account of the Rohingya issue.

Malaysia must, therefore, remind the Myanmar ambassador of the very ideals of mutual respect and humanitarian solidarity which were offered to Myanmar along with its invitation into Asean.

It is clear to the Islamic value system that the impoverished Rohingya cannot be left in the status of “boat people”. They cannot be left without representation, no matter what cost and effort that may entail.

Malaysia must offer every human resource at its command to organise and defend them, without losing them in the politicisation of an all-too-common ethnicisation where none is needed nor required.

The Rohingya must be offered membership in the Muslim ummah, and that ummah must henceforth be defined in ways that all can see and accept.

One thought on “Rohingya: Islam's Bloody Borders”

  1. What a load of tripe – and folks – these are the people that the ALP is trying to import into Australia.. The problems are caused by muslims, and it is highly unfair to expect Myanmar to welcome these thugs. Quite simply they are not wanted, and it appears both Bangladesh and Myanmar do not want them. Malaysia can import them into Malaysia, but no doubt the malaysians are too busy causing strife in Southern Thailand..
