It was Linnaeus Tripe who was the offical fotographer on this quest and his architectonic and topographic view of the land is an important one. Tripe described this scenery as'A nice gorge near Kemmindine'. The Tiger Alley was one of the few streets that led from Rangoon to the south. Kemendine is located in the northwestern part of Rangoon and Kemmendine was a town that was an important base for the people of Burma during the First Anglo-Burmese Wars of 1824.

Later it was taken over by the Brits and in 1855 it was built according to the raster map, according to which Rangoon was built from anew.

Burma: Closure of two Rangoon Muslim colleges

{Jangoon] - The Myanmar administration should immediately re-open two madrasahs or Muslim faith colleges that were closed off by Yangon locals on April 28, 2017, Human Rights Watch said today. It should make a public commitment to protect the right to religion for all Burma's faith groups, which includes service, compliance, practice and doctrine.

At the end of April, a bully of about 50 to 100 Buddhist ultra-nationalists put strong pressures on Yangon's Thaketa township policemen and officers to shut down the two Madrasasas. Ultra-nationalists argued that Moslem parishioners used the school to perform prayer that they said they had broken an arrangement that the school principals sign last year.

Officials implemented the Mafia's demands and did not reopen the school system by refusing to educate several hundred schoolchildren. The assertions of the ultra-nationalist Buddhaist groups that the closing was legitimate because the Madrasah leadership had subscribed to a paper in October 2015 in which they agreed not to use the school for prayers do not justify its closing.

It would be a violation of the fundamental right of the Islamic communities to be free of religion, even if the treaty were not coerced, as the proofs show. According to the news reports, Buddhist ultra-nationalists had previously put pressure on pressure locally to pray at the two mazas. One of the schools' safety officers, Tin Myo Aung, 45, said Human Right Watch saw a group of Buddhist ultra-nationalists arrive outside the guarded college around 4:00 pm.

Around 6 p.m. the policemen closed the doors of the buildings to keep everyone from trespassing. A dispute between some Buddhist ultra-nationalists and an Associated Press journalist did not get out of hand. One member of the Human Rights Watch Education Board said the agencies said the closing was provisional but did not set a timetable for the re-opening of the kindergarten.

Humane Rights Watch paid a visit to Thaketa Township on April 29 and watched tens of policemen outside both of them. Shortly after 11 a.m., locals and officials, as well as people who had been designated by locals as Buddhist ultra-nationalists, came to the homes to investigate them. Since then, outside clergy have been refusing to let in Muslims, even those whose kids go to war.

A member of the Education Board informed Human Rights Watch that the authorities immediately sent a note to the Rangoon region prime minister's offices asking for the reopening of the Rangoon area. As Tin Myo Aung said, several hundred kids aged 5 to 12 normally go to both of them. The 54-year-old Wunna Shwe, co-general of the Islamic religious affairs council, said that such shutdowns are not unusual in Burma and also concern other ethnic minorities such as Christians.

The Human Rights Watch called the Rangoon Information Centre on several occasions, but no one was prepared to speak out on the matter. Muslims occupied high posts in the Burmese regime and civic life during the UK Colonisation and in the early years after the 1948 war. Following his or her sovereignty, Muslims continue to have played a major part in the country's commercial, economic and educational life.

In 1962, after General Ne Win took over, he began the systemic eviction of Muslims from rule and the armed forces. There are no instructions in writing prohibiting Muslims from entering or being promoted to the administration, but this has long been the custom. During 2001, Human Rights Watch recorded anti-Muslim violent acts in various parts of the land that have devastated tens of muslims' and madrasahs' mosques.

The 2014 survey shows that Muslims make up just over 2 per cent of Burma's total populace, or about 90 per cent of the Buddhist people. This number, however, does not exceed one million Muslims who are Rohingya, a largely Stateless ethnical group mainly residing in the state of Rakhine.

Myanmar is obliged by universal humanitarian laws to uphold the right to freedom of thought, conscience as well as the right to expression of one' s faith in adoration, compliance, practice and doctrine. This right is restricted to safeguard the security, order, health or morality or the basic laws and liberties of others.

Myanmar authorities have provided no information or proof that the two Muslim provinces pose an immediate danger. Sequential Myanmar authorities have on several occasions permitted Buddhist ultra-nationalist groups to stop ethnic minorities from voting in the places where they adore, practise or get professsion. The United States Commission on International Religions Freedom in its 2017 edition of its 2017 General Assembly General Assembly General Assembly General Assembly General Assembly General Assembly General Assembly Statement once again noted ubiquitous discriminations against Muslims and Christians in Burma.

State laws on places of worship and the building of sacred edifices are obscure, often only verbally declared by community officers, and have burdensome demands. As Wunna Shwe said to Human Rights Watch, there are no formal writing policies or provisions that prohibit praying in worship colleges or restrict the building of worship facilities, although some worship colleges were forced to ask permission to perform worship for a certain period of the year.

Burma's law also bans the building of new mausoleums and makes it very hard to get permission to repair old church-houses. There have been such limitations since the early 1960', and as a consequence there are many muks in Burma that have gone into serious neglect, while others are struggling to help grow Islamic societies.

. For example, a guide at a mosque said a few weeks ago on-site agencies were forcing the mosque to rip up a cement floor planted to keep Rats out. Church commanders said this licensing procedure involved no less than six permits from almost all levels of government agencies - from the station to the Rangoon provincial administration offices.

Enforced closures of the two Madrid races in Rangoon are part of a wider tendency of harassment, bullying and force exerted by ultra-nationalist Buddhist groups against Islamic societies. This includes a winning drive to pass four abusive "racial and worship laws" that came into force in May and August 2015 and exaggeratedly targeted Muslims and other minority religions, violated women's liberties and encouraged ultra-nationalist Buddhist groups to persuade grassroots civil servants to push through the Bill.

Gradual acts of violent conflict against Moslem people in various parts of the land, but especially against Rohinyga Muslims in Burma's west Rakhine state, have destroyed many muks and abandoned religious groups. The June 2012 conflict between Buddhists and Muslims in Rakhine State was followed in October 2012 by co-ordinated assaults on the Rohingya by Rhakhin Buddhist groups supported by law enforcement and the army.

The Human Rights Watch found that the attacks on the Rohingya community in October were "ethnic cleansing" and a crime against man. More than 140,000 displaced persons, most of them Rohingya and Kaman Muslims. Crashes between Muslims and Buddhists in Meiktila, Mandalay region, resulted in the death of several dozen and the destruction of more than 800 Buddhist structures in 2013.

Other annual aggressions against Moslem civilizations took place in April in the small hamlet of Okan, Sagaing area, in May in Lashio, Shan state, in August in the small town of Htan Gone, Sagaing area, and in October in the township of Thandwe, Rakhine state. A buddhistic bullfighter in July 2014 assaulted a moslem home in the town of Mandalay.

The United Nations adopted a UN Security Council in March 2017 to send a fact-finding delegation to examine these assaults and other abuse, which, according to a UN High Commissioner for Human Rights statement, are most likely to constitute a crime against man.
