Burma now

Myanmar now

The Myanmar government is currently experiencing a terrible human rights crisis. The Middle East, as Iskhandar Razak explains, is now on its way to other battlefields. When Asian values are about promoting a harmonious relationship between state and society, ASEAN leaders have lost their jobs in Burma. The Burmese army has been conducting a brutal offensive against the Rohingya communities in Burma (Myanmar) since the end of August. Find out more about Burma Truth.

MUSE Project - Anti-Muslim violent in Burma: What about now?

What is the current cost of anti-Muslim force in Burma? First, the patterns, types, scale, incidence and effects of anti-Muslim force have shifted during the quasi-civilian rule that came to office in 2011 and were different from the prior upheavals. Second, both "hardliners" and "reformists" of the transition regimes are involved in the continuing local authority force in Burma and exploit it, in opposition to the predominant portrayal of force as acts of "dark forces" and "hardliners" behind the scenes.

Third, the document examines an unparalleled tendency leading to conflict between the order of Burma's monks and its laity, which would bring about long-term social change, while the immediate and medium-term cost of worship remains very high.

So where are Burma-Tamils now?

Tamil people were taken to Burma by colonialists to work in rural areas. Tamil people had an important place in Burma's economic life in the 1930'. In Burma, anti-Indic feelings arose in the 1930' s. Following a number of unrest, the Tamil people began to return to India. Indians and TN Govt found settlements for them in and around Chennai.

They are now well associated with the Indian Tamil people. Several of the Burmese Tamil people who came to India tried to return to Burma. There are still Tamil people in Myanmar, although not in the same number. Following nationalisation in Myanmar, the Tamil people do not have the same standing as the Burmese. Approximately 150,000 Burmese Tamil people were murdered during the construction of the Burma-Thailand-Railroad.
