No such thing as a separate ethnic group called Rohingya; peaceful coexistence with Muslims not likely

Posted by Ann Corcoran on March 17, 2013

Longtime readers know that we have been following the Rohingya Muslim story for years and when they finally burst on the scene in a big way in your US/Western towns and cities as refugees (small numbers are coming to the US already), just as the Somalis did decades ago, at least you will have a chronology here at RRW of how it happened.

For ambitious readers and prospective authors, we have 134 previous posts in our Rohingya Reports category.

And, one reason why the turmoil in largely Buddhist Burma (aka Myanmar) is being watched so closely is that if the Burmese government is allowed to exclude an ethnic/religious group, which they claim are basically illegal aliens from Bangladesh, from full participation in government, the world’s Leftist/Islamist axis will have suffered a blow.   Burma/Myanmar wants the right to keep Burma for its own kind of people (diversity is not beautiful to them!).

There is lots of interest in learning exactly who these people are and how they came to be in Burma.  I’ve seen two reports including the one I’m posting now (here is a previous one) this month of historians holding seminars on the subject.

Of course, to us, the issue will primarily be—why are the Rohingya/Bengalis coming to the US?  Why is this conflict in Burma our problem?

Historians confirm that at most the people calling themselves Rohingya today are in Burma from the days of colonial rule—not from an Arab shipwreck centuries before that.

Dr. Aye Chan had been imprisoned in Burma

From Eleven (Myanmar media):

A straight forward message was given by history Professor Aye Chan* of Kanda University of Japan that there is no Rohingya in Myanmar, tracing back to centuries of Rakhine chronicle at a lively lecture in spacious MICT Park of Yangon on March 14.


According to Aye Chan, there is no national as Rohingya people in history and that the historians would be unethical if they considered things merely on the basis of patriotism and moreover, they should not advocate on the wrong premises. One must not talk or write without the firm evidences and that the history writers must try to present the truth by setting aside the partisanship. He said that he had never advocated on behalf of any national race in the discussions or writings.

The professor continued, “In the chronicle of Myanmar, there never were Rohingya people. I always talk and declare this statement. However, I respect and pay esteem to human rights matters. I have never committed or slip of tongue that undermined human rights. All the evidences are with me.”

Elaborating the past, he said that the existing problem was the bad legacy of the colonial rule for over one hundred year in Myanmar.

Professor Aye Chan goes on to debunk the Arab shipwreck theory.

Leaving the history aside, here is the real nugget of truth behind the conflict—Islamists are spreading their people across the world and hiding behind a shield (that it’s all about humanitarianism and fairness)—and Dr. Chan calls them out.   Remember we learned about the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and Iran involved in shoving the Rohingya down the throats of the Buddhists, here and here.

If peaceful coexistence is the goal, then why is money being raised for a holy war?

There are talks and discussions spreading to the effect calling for peaceful coexistence between Rakhine national races and Bengali.

The Professor raised a question to the audience, “There is request for cash donation to wage religious war (Jihad – – a holy war fought by Muslims to defend Islam). The handouts are distributed in the Islamic countries. Bank accounts for such donations are opened in Chittagong and Dhaka in Bangladesh. With such sinister scheme in the pipeline, will you believe the idea of peaceful coexistence with Rakhine nationals and Bengali?”

He continued his talks by saying that the word “Rohingya” was first introduced in an article in the then Guardian daily newspaper published in Yangon by a person named Mr. Abu Gaffer, nationalities representative of Buthitaung Township of Rakhine State in 1951.

* Read about Professor Aye Chan here, and then here a Rohingya living in the US calls him a racist (ho hum, so what else is new).

  1. […] Bangladeshi are able to find a way to get from Bangladesh to Australia now,” he said.   [Many believe the Rohingya are ethnically Bengali in the first […]


  2. […] been writing about the Rohingya (Bengalis) for years and have watched the Muslim grievance lobby, human rights agitators, and government […]

    If they call themselves “rohingya” long enough it will catch on like “palestinian” did.


  4. I am constantly amazed by so many masses and sheeples NOT seeing and understanding the threat that IS islam. [I refuse to even use a capital “I” because that gives it far more respect than it will ever deserve and more than I will ever give it.]

    When islam is eliminated, so too will be the majority of the world’s conflicts.


  5. With the virtual explosion of negativity regarding so-called helpless, innocent refugees and asylum seekers the tables are starting to turn on the gimmie-grant industry in the USA and other countries around the world wherein our genuine compassion is shoved down our throats by the greed-mongers, profiteers and the phonies in the United Nations.

    We are being “hoaxed” by our own government and the two chief “hoaxters”, George Soros and Barack Obama, whose “benevolence” leans towards certain minorities and certain religions and the need to ignore US law in order to implement their own one-world, globalist goals that require the destruction of the American economy, our Constitution, the rights and priveleges of US citizens and the wonderful potential of capitalism.

    We have shared the bounty created by the free enterprise system for more than two hundred years, making adjustments for our mistakes, clearing the way for more inclusion for all and continuing to add to the increased national stability that comes with an awareness that our freedoms come with the responsibility to fight the enemies that would devour us all.

    We cannot continue to avoid calling out racism for what it is, radical Islam for it’s threat to the entire world, communism for it’s destructive liars for their lies and incredible distortions of truth and leaders who boast of their transparency and then use our own extorted tax money to cover up the truth and shield their personal and political flaws and globalist goals.

    They are upon us now, and I am amazed that we continue to import by the hundreds of thousands people who come here not to assimilate or work to promote our strength, but to work towards our demise and destruction that is encouraged and directed by some of our own elected, and re-elected officials at every level.
