Why is Burma now Called Myanmar

How come Burma is now called Myanmar?

Said someone called cops when he questioned them. Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is a melting pot of political tension.

The rebel Rohingyas demand a one-month cease-fire in Burma as the expedition increases.

The Rohingya fighters, whose roundups on 25 August in the Burmese state of Rakhine led to a crackdown within the armed forces, during which almost 300,000 of the Islamic minorities fled to Bangladesh, announced an immediate one-month cease-fire on Sunday. Another 27,000 Rakhine Buddhists and Hindus have also been evicted by force that has spread across the North.

"Herewith the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) explains a passing halt to aggressive army operations," she said in a declaration on her Twitter attack @ARSA_Official, and added that she should bring relief assistance to the beaten area. She appealed to Burma, also known as Myanmar, to return "this human pause" in the struggle.

The Burmese Armed Forces did not react immediately. Rohringya migrants claim that the army's offensive against ARSA resulted in massive culls and the cremation of several hundred towns that they sent across the frontier.

The United Nations said on Saturday that a grand total of 290,000 people had escaped after long hikes or by sea to Bangladesh and had joined the already crowded Rohingya refugee camp, which had escaped from Myanmar for years.

A setback by the police led to the Rohingya exit.

Rakhine Buddhist people in Bangladesh say that Rakhine Buddhist tribes united in indiscriminately slaughtering the people. This means that more than a third of the 1.1 million Rohingya in Rakhine state are expected to have escaped in less than a year. Myanmar does not want its Rohingya people. Rohingya has been treated overshadowing Burma's rise from power, with de facto emphasis on Aung San Suu Kyi's neglect to use her ethical clout to defend the people.
