Rohingya activist Wai Wai Nu has reportedly weighed in on the conversation, calling the cartoon “dangerous” and “insulting”. According to Coconuts Yangon, Nu said in an interview today: “It’s like boat people are coming into the place of the ethnic people. It’s a bad image and the depiction is wrong. Because boat people are just going out of the country, they are not coming in. It’s insulting and dangerous because it is giving the wrong message to people.”
Myanmar Hate Mongers use Facebook to create racist violence against Muslims.
Facebook should be notified of Wirathu's use of FB to cause preemptive violence by the racists in Burma. Wirathu attempts to mobilize hatred and fear of Muslims in Myanmar Wirathu is Myanmar's best-known Saffron-robed hate-monger with a shaven head - not a monk by any definition. Here is his vicious fear-mongering posting at his Facebook time-line (dated 12 May). "Maung Daw (a Rohingya town) is approaching a critical point (of terrorism)" On 13 May (today), illegal Muslim migrants are plotting to stir up disturbances in Maung Daw, Bu Thi Daung and Ra Thae Daung townships. Myanmar authorities have already issued the security/terrorist alert to that effect. Despite their efforts to organize and stage a protest rally by these Muslims, the permit has not been granted for their protest, it is learned. There has been a threat issued by them that the Muslims will wage a Jihad against anyone who enters the Muslim neighborhoods or villages. The Rakhine public is very concerned about another round of Jihadist violence in their state/province. There are 3 factors that appear to be coalescing: 1) the US Embassy in Myanmar is openly using the term Rohingya; 2) the Rohingya Solidarity Organization (RSO) - Zarni's note: viewed as 'a terrorist' group, although there is no real factual evidence for that view - is stepping up its propaganda efforts internationally; 3) and the same RSO is instigating the illegal Muslim migrants (from Bangladesh) (to create disturbances in Myanmar).
