Myanmar's root of the Islamic dispute

The" boatmen's" diaspora" from Asia did not appear as a brief outburst of Buddhist animosity against Muslims. A diplomat report said the newsmagazine carried out a study entitled The Listening Project, in which they monitored the worries and mindset of other groups across Myanmar. "During this study, which is being carried out in six areas of Myanmar, we have periodically noted discourse that Muslims construe as an alien danger, in which Buddhism is fragile and needs to be protected so that Islam does not repress it as the dominant religion.

Afraid of a Moslem take-over is founded on a view of Islam as inherently acts of cruelty, justifiable with conspicuously recalling the discourse that has been customary in the United States and other states since 9-11. Regularly, there have been given cases of supposed Muslims in Myanmar and the activities of ISIS and Al Qaeda."

As Islamophobia has started to show its terrible face in the West, so it is in lands like Myanmar. It is generally considered a menace to international law. And even those who may not know Muslims in person believe that they are safeguarding their nations by evicting Muslims from the state.
