Documenting a massacre,Villagers who fled attack and crossed border into Bangladesh recall seeing their family and neighbours killed.It was the fast-flowing river that doomed the inhabitants of Tula Toli.The Tula Toli massacre was a mass-killing of Rohingya people during a Myanmar Army clearance operation in the village of Tula Toli , Rakhine State, near the Bangladesh–Myanmar border. According to eyewitnesses, Burmese soldiers allegedly carried out the massacre with the support of local Rakhines who also resided in the village. There is no official death toll due to the travel restrictions enforced by the government of Myanmar on the entry of journalists and aid workers into Rakhine State, but eyewitnesses claim that at least 200 women and 300 children were killed.The soldiers used rocket-propelled grenades, and they set fire to the houses with matches.
Massacre at Tula Toli of Rohingya recall horror of Myanmar army attack.The soldiers used rocket-propelled grenades, and they set fire to the houses with matches.Snaking around the remote village on three sides, the treacherous waters allowed Burmese soldiers to corner and hold people on the river’s sandy banks. Some were shot on the spot. Others drowned in the current as they tried to escape.More than 160,000 of Myanmar’s 1.1 million ethnic Rohingya minority have fled to Bangladesh, bringing with them stories that they say describe ethnic cleansing.The Myanmar government calls the Rohingya “Bengalis” and claims they are the descendents of illegal immigrants from Bangladesh who migrated to Rakhine during the days of the British Empire but the community can trace its roots back centuries to the ancient Arakan civilisation.International attention has focused on Rohingyas.Burma (officially known as Myanmar) has the world’s longest surviving military dictatorship.Muslim-Buddhist clash in Burma leaves many dead and hundreds of houses burnt. Trouble started, June 3 in Rakhine State, when a Buddhist mob attacked a bus and killed 10 Rohingya Muslims on a mistaken assumption.A state of emergency have been declared by the President, Thein Sein, for Rakhine state, which borders Bangladesh following the fighting in the capital, Sittwe.Homes burned, gunshots rang out and witnesses reported many dead as sectarian violence raged for a fifth day between Rohingya Muslims and Buddhists in northwest Myanma.Witnesses reported black smoke over the port town of Sittwe. Some Buddhists have been seen carrying bamboo stakes, machetes and sling-shots. Both sides were also reportedly seen setting houses on fire.A Muslim Lower House Representative, Shwe Maung, has accused the Police of allowing Buddhists break the curfew and burn Muslim Houses. He urged the army to intervene and accused police of allowing Buddhists to break the curfew and burn Muslim houses.“Sittwe is like a war zone” he said, putting the death toll at 50 in the village of Narzi, not far from Sittwe.Amid all this, Bangladesh has stepped up security along its 200-kilometre (125- mile) border with Burma/Myanmar to prevent an influx of Rohingya refugees who are fleeing the violence. It is estimated that about 300,000 Royingya Muslims are already refugees in Bangladesh.What are the factors responsible for this and what are the origins of the internal political conflict that has plagued the country for so long? Myanmar military exonerates itself in report on atrocities against Rohingya.Myanmar’s army has released a report denying all allegations of rape and killings by security forces, having days earlier replaced the general in charge of the operation that drove more than 600,000 Rohingyas Muslims to flee to Bangladesh.No reason was given for Maj Gen Maung Maung Soe being transferred from his post as the head of Western Command in Rakhine state, where Myanmar’s military, known as the Tatmadaw, launched a sweeping counter-insurgency operation in August last year.Aung San Suu Kyi spent more than 15 years under house arrest before being released in 2010, going on to lead her National League for Democracy to a landslide victory at elections two years ago.But a clause in the constitution forbids her from becoming president.It bans anyone with foreign family members from taking the top job.The junta also made sure they retained a quota of seats in Parliament.The constitution provides that 25 per cent of seats in Parliament are given to the military.When the new Parliament met last year, this was visibly apparent.
Min Aung Hlaing, myanamr army, myanmar senior general, myanmar politics.Many MPs arrived in their traditional ethnic attire an excited kaleidoscope of colours, exotic hats and pride and sat in contrast to the large bloc of stern-faced soldiers in their dark green uniforms.Aung San Suu Kyi has had a contentious relationship with the military-backed opposition Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) as well as the powerful military itself, which dominated Myanmar for more than a half-century and kept her under house arrest for 15 years over a 21-year period.
Myanmar government's suppression of Rohingya contributes to stability is a poor excuse for propping up a military dictatorship that has been in power. Laws that are not backed by penalties are not laws.The government crimes against humanity, any one can has the right to resist.The army bloc makes it almost impossible to amend the constitution.Aung San Suu Kyi spent more than 15 years under house arrest before being released in 2010, going on to lead her National League for Democracy to a landslide victory at elections two years ago.But a clause in the constitution forbids her from becoming president.
