Monks who played a vital role in
Burma's recent struggle for
democracy have been accused of
fuelling ethnic tensions in the country
by calling on people to shun a Muslim
community that has suffered decades
of abuse.
In a move that has shocked many
observers, some monks' organisations
have issued pamphlets telling people
not to associate with the Rohingya
community, and have blocked
humanitarian assistance from
reaching them. One leaflet described
the Rohingya as "cruel by nature" and
claimed it had "plans to exterminate"
other ethnic groups.
The outburst against the Rohingya,
often described as one of the world's
most oppressed groups, comes after
weeks of ethnic violence in the
Rakhine state in the west of Burma
that has left more than 80 dead and
up to 100,000 people living in a
situation described as "desperate" by
humanitarian organisations. As state-
sanctioned abuses against the Muslim
community continue, Burma's
president Thein Sein – credited by the
international community for ushering
in a series of democratic reforms in
the country and releasing political
prisoners such as Aung San Suu Kyi –
has urged neighbouring Bangladesh
to take in the Rohingya.
"In recent days, monks have emerged
in a leading role to enforce denial of
humanitarian assistance to Muslims,
in support of policy statements by
politicians," said Chris Lewa, director
of the Arakan project, a regional NGO.
"A member of a humanitarian agency
in Sittwe told me that some monks
were posted near Muslim
displacement camps, checking on and
turning away people they suspected
would visit for assistance."
The Young Monks' Association of
Sittwe and Mrauk Oo Monks'
Association have both released
statements in recent days urging
locals not to associate with the group.
Displaced Rohingya have been
housed in over-crowded camps away
from the Rakhine population – where
a health and malnutrition crisis is said
to be escalating – as political leaders
move to segregate and expel the
800,000-strong minority from Burma.
Earlier this month, Thein Sein
attempted to hand over the group to
the UN refugee agency.
Aid workers report ongoing threats
and interference by local nationalist
and religious groups. Some
monasteries in Maungdaw and Sittwe
sheltering displaced Rakhine people
have openly refused to accept
international aid, alleging that it is
"biased" in favour of the Rohingya.
Monks have traditionally played a
critical role in helping vulnerable
citizens, stepping in to care for the
victims of Cyclone Nargis in 2008 after
the military junta rejected
international assistance.
Many have been shocked by the
response of the monks and members
of the democracy movement to the
recent violence, which erupted after
the rape and murder of a Buddhist
woman, allegedly by three Muslims,
unleashed long-standing ethnic
Monks' leader Ashin Htawara recently
encouraged the government to send
the group "back to their native land"
at an event in London hosted by the
anti-Rohingya Burma Democratic
Concern. Ko Ko Gyi, a democracy
activist with the 88 Generation
Students group and a former political
prisoner, said: "The Rohingya are not
a Burmese ethnic group. The root
cause of the violence… comes from
across the border." Mark Farmaner,
director of Burma Campaign UK, said:
"We were shocked to have [Ashin
Htawara] propose to us that there
should be what amounts to
concentration camps for the
Ms Suu Kyi has also been criticised for
failing to speak out. Amal de Chickera
of the London-based Equal Rights
Trust, said: "You have these moral
figures, whose voices do matter. It's
extremely disappointing and in the
end it can be very damaging."
The Rohingya have lived in Burma for
centuries, but in 1982, the then
military ruler Ne Win stripped them of
their citizenship. Thousands fled to
Bangladesh where they live in pitiful
camps. Foreign media are still denied
access to the conflict region, where a
state of emergency was declared last
month, and ten aid workers were
arrested without explanation.

the monk in the picture are not burme monks, but monk from thailand who protes to burme president (thien sien) in thailand for burme opresive to ethnic rohingya.] [url][/url]

Human Right watch repot in 5 july about Rohingya clash with Rakhine

The recent sectarian violence began
after an ethnic Arakan woman was
allegedly raped and killed by three
Muslim men on Ramri island in
southern Arakan State in late May,
which was followed by the June 3
killing of 10 Muslims by an Arakan
mob in Toungop. On June 8,
thousands of Rohingya rioted in the
town of Maungdaw, destroying
Arakan property and causing an
unknown number of deaths. Groups
of Rohingya subsequently committed
killings and other violence elsewhere
in the state, burning down Arakan
homes and villages.
Arakan groups, in
some cases with the collusion of local
authorities and police, committed
violence against Rohingya
communities, including killings and
beatings, and burning down Muslim
homes and villages.
On June 10, President Thein Sein
declared a state of emergency in
northern Arakan State, which permits
the armed forces to carry out arrests
and detain people without
fundamental due process protections.
