Burma is a country with about 0.7 million Muslim population out of total 75 million population. Muslims in Burma have been suffering badly since the year 1962 after the military took over. Since then thousands of Muslims have been killed and thousands of women have been raped but the recent wave of violence is worse than all the previous incidents. Almost every family of Muslims is a victim of Buddhist led regime of Burma. Suffering from such deliberate genocide, many of the Muslims have been compelled to leave their houses and migrate to neighboring countries.
The most sad and tragic aspect of this genocide is that nobody is willing to speak against this cruelty. The entire mainstream media is showing criminal silence upon this mass killing going on in Burma against Muslims. We are not seeing any projection for Burmese Muslims in British Broadcasting Corporation, Cable News Network; Fox New, Bloomberg, New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and other mainstream print and electronic sections of the media.
The response from various Human Rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and others is also very tragic and disappointed. These human rights organizations have failed to project this inhuman genocide against Muslims which is going on in Burma. Like is the case with international platforms or so called representatives of the world. The United Nations Organizations also failed to show significant and powerful response against mass killings of Muslims in Burma. The only considerable response we have seen yet is from the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) and a few Islamic countries like Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan etc. Similarly, social media campaigns are also projecting this inhuman incident effectively; there are a number of pages on Facebook and other social media websites that are raising voice for this cause.
If we look at the figures of Mass killing which is going on in Burma against Muslims, they are shocking. In less than a month thousands of Muslims in Burma have been burnt, slaughtered and killed by the Buddhist oppressors. Thousands of Muslims women have been raped and many of the Muslims have been compelled to vacate their houses and evacuate to other countries in order to save their lives. The only understandable reason for criminal silence by the mainstream western media, United Nations organization, the European Union, humanitarian organizations and world leadership is that this genocide is going on against Muslims. If it were against Jews or Christians, Burma could have been attacked by the United States or any other western country. The so called humanity of the entire western world has been exposed badly through this incident. For western countries, terrorist is only a person who kills any Jew or Christian; they are not willing to admit any killer of Muslims to be terrorist or extremist. Not a single statement from any leader of so call world powers has been seen to condemn this mass killing of Muslims which is going on in Burma.
