Buddhists Attack Muslims, Burn Hundreds Of Their Homes, Take Women And Rape Them, And Slaughter People By Beheading Them And Cutting Them To Pieces

By Theodore Shoebat

Buddhists in Myanmar have made their brutal attack on the Rohingya Muslim population. According to reports, people have been decapitated, cut to pieces, raped, and hundreds of homes have been burned down. As we read in one report:

Myanmar’s blocking of vital aid to thousands of desperate civilians fleeing persecution is the latest in a countless number of atrocities committed against the Rohingya.

Considered the most persecuted people group in the world, more than 80,000 have fled Myanmar into Bangladesh since the latest outburst of fighting began just over a week ago.

Satellite pictures released by Human Rights Watch (HRW) show entire villages burnt to the ground with 700 homes destroyed in one area alone. Video footage shows children being beheaded and women and children beaten. Those who survived to escape tell of horrific ‘massacres’.

Hamida Begum, a refugee who has left everything behind, told CNN: ‘They are beating us, shooting at us and hacking our people to death.

‘Many people were killed. Many women were raped and killed. We are very poor.’

Aid workers in refugee camps on the Bangladesh side of the border say they can’t take any more in and the UN’s humanitarian outfit is being blocked from reaching thousands more, trapped in forests and hills on the Myanmar side of the border.

As tens of thousands, many with bullet wounds, continue to flee into Bangladesh despite orders from the Bangladeshi government to stop them, the latest surge in persecution against the Rohingya is causing particular worry.

Similar violence less than a year ago saw 85,000 Rohingya flee across the border into Bangladesh bringing accounts of mass rape, torture and murder from inside their own Rakhine State.

And since 2012 100,000 have lived in refugee camps within Myanmar after clashes between Buddhist nationalists and Muslims forced them from their homes. Along with hundreds of thousands of others, they also stopped receiving crucial aid last week.

Humanitarian organisations are ‘deeply concerned about the fate of thousands of people affected by the ongoing violence’ in northern Rakhine, said Pierre Peron, spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Myanmar.

‘There is an urgent need to ensure that displaced people and other civilians affected by the violence are protected and are given safe access to humanitarian assistance including food, water, shelter, and health services,’ he added.

‘Humanitarian aid normally goes to these vulnerable people for a very good reason, because they depend on it,’ he went on. ‘For the sake of vulnerable people in all communities in Rakhine state, urgent measures must be taken to allow vital humanitarian activities to resume.’

But on top of the concerns about the mass loss of life amid accusations of genocide and ethnic cleansing is the acknowledgement the violence was prompted by an attack from the Rohinyga’s newly formed Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA).

Myanmar’s 1.1 million Rohingyas have largely eschewed retaliation despite decades of persecution from the mainly Buddhist Myanmar military who do not recognise their place in the country. Stateless and refused citizenship, the Rohingya have suffered sustained attempts at ethnic cleansing with the Myanmar government justifying the attacks by saying they are combating ‘terrorism’.

The largely Islamic people group have been victims of anti-Muslim sentiment fuelled by Myanmar’s Buddhist leaders.

But the formation of ARSA last year adds weight to the government’s illegitimate claim the Rohingyas are terrorists. This latest wave of attacks was provoked by ARSA’s attack on a Myanmar police outpost, killing nine.

While the response has been disproportionate and more than 400 have died already, the outbreak of increasingly frequent attacks from Rohingya militants is a worrying sign for any hoping for peace in the region.

The violence in Myanmar is horrific, and there are many videos that show, and while I am not certain if it is truly who are the victims in these videos, they nonetheless illustrate how bloody the killing has become:

Now, I know that there will be people who will be praising the Buddhists in Myanmar for killing Muslims. The sad thing is that for one, it is easy to fall into the trap of supporting anyone who is killing Muslims, and secondly, by this, so many fall into the trap of supporting genocide. If you are going to support the Buddhists in Myanmar for their slaughter of the Rohingya Muslims, then you should also start hailing the Japanese imperial forces who slaughtered Muslims in their occupation of East Asia. For example, the Japanese slaughtered the Hui Muslims in China, and there is one horrific recording of this in which the Japanese slaughtered a Muslim landlord named Ha, and his wife, before raping and butchering the tenants:
On December 13, about 30 soldiers came to a Chinese house at #5 Hsing Lu Koo in the southeastern part of Nanking, and demanded entrance. The door was open by the landlord, a Mohammedan named Ha. They killed him immediately with a revolver and also Mrs. Ha, who knelt before them after Ha’s death, begging them not to kill anyone else. Mrs. Ha asked them why they killed her husband and they shot her. Mrs. Hsia was dragged out from under a table in the guest hall where she had tried to hide with her 1 year old baby. After being stripped and raped by one or more men, she was bayoneted in the chest, and then had a bottle thrust into her vagina. The baby was killed with a bayonet. Some soldiers then went to the next room, where Mrs. Hsia’s parents, aged 76 and 74, and her two daughters aged 16 and 14. They were about to rape the girls when the grandmother tried to protect them. The soldiers killed her with a revolver. The grandfather grasped the body of his wife and was killed. The two girls were then stripped, the elder being raped by 2–3 men, and the younger by 3. The older girl was stabbed afterwards and a cane was rammed in her vagina. The younger girl was bayoneted also but was spared the horrible treatment that had been meted out to her sister and mother. The soldiers then bayoneted another sister of between 7–8, who was also in the room. The last murders in the house were of Ha’s two children, aged 4 and 2 respectively. The older was bayoneted and the younger split down through the head with a sword.
These Japanese were Buddhist pagans, and they did such horrific atrocities. Are we going to praise the Japanese for this? Muslims have also been slaughtering Buddhists, and this too is evil. There must be balance in our approach. One of the greatest enemies of civilization is imbalance between charity and justice. We must have justice, yes, but we must also have charity. If we just have “charity,” then there will be no charity, because we would have the evil mercy that gives license to the wicked. If we have solely justice, then we will have no justice, because we would then shed innocent blood. Charity and justice, one cannot live without the other.

  • Randy Perez

    So you think slaughtering human beings is good? You called him soft for being sympathetic to humans?

    • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

      It’s true, we should honor people as people, as beings made in the Likeness of God, who like us have tarnished His Image within us, with a propensity to sin. Actaully some of the best human beings I’ve met, were within Islam at least nominally. G.K. Chesterton wrote once something to the effect that in the Far East, Islam is the closest thing to Christianity most Asians will ever know, so you can only imagine their hard heartedness if they encounter actual Christianity and not one of it’s heresies-which Islam is.

  • Mart1963

    Seems the Buddhist have become Muslims.

  • And you completely missed everything that Theo has said, especially this part:

    “Now, I know that there will be people who will be praising the Buddhists
    in Myanmar for killing Muslims. The sad thing is that for one, it is
    easy to fall into the trap of supporting anyone who is killing Muslims,
    and secondly, by this, so many fall into the trap of supporting
    genocide.”

    As I said, it is evil killing evil.

  • Julie

    Totally horrific.

    But from what I read, this is all reactionary to the same old types of aggression and violence non Muslims have experienced by that Muslim population in the past…………

    Shows what happens when people try to fight back in the name of any religion….

    I pray for the conversion of Islam….

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    Buddhism is violent, in fact the most Anti-Human religion possible.

    • Стефан Евгений

      and hinduism that birthed it .

      • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

        Indeed, it truly is the case my friend

    • Indian Christian Crusader

      Original Buddhism was very peaceful religion, Buddha was a very compassionate man, unlike Mohammed. Later Buddhists copied many things from Hindus due to Hindu influences. Buddhism in reality opposed Hinduism’s idol worship, caste system and so on. Unfortunately with times, Buddhists got corrupted with ethnic hatred and other issues.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    I want to share something, In as much as I disagree with Islam and all those Bangladeshi migrants spreading everywhere, a lot of the problem came from the British portioning of those areas of the then British India and myanmar. Previously Myanmar was also part of British Indian empire and later split in 1935. Rakhine’s south asian areas were included under Myanmar instead of being merged with East Bengal (later to become east Pakistan and later Bangladesh) Many of those people are unreached and very poor people. It gives me no pleasure to see poor people, innocent women or children being hacked or killed regardless of religion.

    Also remember, that many Christian tribes such as Chin and Karen have been killed in Myanmar by Burma’s army.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    Buddhist Burmese army have killed Christian Chin, Kachin and other tribes in Burma long before this problem came. Burma has many ethnic civil wars.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    Theodore is not soft on Islam the religion. He has Christian compassion and Christian love for all human beings, that includes those who trapped in Islam. He is a true Christian man. He speaks out against evil boldly, because he loves human beings and wants to save them with the truth of Jesus. Those are poor uneducated helpless women and children in Burma getting slaughtered. Nothing to celebrate about children getting slaughtered. Even Christians have been killed in Burma, such as the Christian Chins and Kachins and other tribes at hands of Burmese army. Burmese army are no saints.

  • Penny LB

    I have never heard of Buddhists being violent.

    • Indian Christian Crusader

      Here is some more information for you http://www.asianews.it/news

      You can also contact Kachin and Chin Christian organizations in USA or any
      place who can tell you their experiences fleeing Burmese Buddhist
      attacks.

      In Sir lanka Buddhist extremists have attacked Tamil Hindus and Christians. The civil war in Sri lanka claimed over 100,000 lives. Your knowledge of Asia is poor.

  • I’m stuffed. I think it’s time to go on a fast.

  • David W

    You should remove the white sheet from your head. You might be able to see things with a little more clarity.

    • It’s interesting to read through this thread. When it comes to Islam, those same folks attacking Theo and indirectly me, think it’s a-ok for Muslims to be murdered in the name of ethno-nationalism.

      Buddhism is another anti-Christ religion. Just as Hinduism is.

  • David W

    Buddhists DID try to take over Asia. Did you forget WWII already?!

  • OrthodoxChristianAmerican

    When Buddhism is done properly, so to speak, and if true, all Creation, all humanity, everything would cease to be. Or rather,They are considered nothing of themselves, just illusionary phenomena, and the understanding of that would lead to their disappearance into ‘Nirvana’ .

    Sounds pretty anti-human to me from a Christian perspective. At least all these other evils and false religions believe in a self that does wrong.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    So by your logic of the last statement – “you need to be real scum to upset buddhists”, the Kachin, and Chin Christians of Burma are real “scum” too? the Hindu Tamils who died in Sri Lanka at hands of Buddhist extremists are “real scum” too? Japanese Buddhist soldiers slaughtering millions during world war means nothing?

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    That does not justify Buddhist extremists killing Christian Chin, Kachin, Karen tribes in Myanmar or poor women, children or elderly. Law and courts deal with crimes, not mob violence.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    What is your justification for Buddhists in Sri lanka killing HIndu tamils or Buddhists in Myanmar killing Christian Chin, Kachin, Karen tribes? They are already internationally recognized refugees. Silverster Stallone’s Rambo 4 was based on the reality of conflict against Karen Christians in Myanmar. Please stop glorifying violence in any form. If you are a true Christian, you wilL CONDEMN the Buddhist extremist attack on Christians.

    India was partitioned by the British for Muslim Pakistan/Bangladesh based on religious grounds. Some parts of Bengal land was handed over to Burma. That is why this problem exists today.

    Rohingya do not have citizenship. They never gave them citizenship in Burma. I don’t know where you got that information. Myanmar does not give citizenship.

    Burmese Buddhists have been attacking Christian minorities as well, as the Kachin and Chin, Karen ethnic groups who are Christians.

    • AZ gal

      IC: obviously, not the ones they are running out of Myanmar. Myanmar has given some of these people citizenship. How many, I do not know.

    What about Japanese Buddhists? Didn’t they try to rule the world and kill millions in Asia during world war 2?

  • Randy Perez

    “Humans murder. Therefore humans are potentially murderers. Solution we should kill all humans.” This is your argument. You will accountable.

  • Randy Perez

    Just remember that it is the Christians’s purpose in life to simply take over countries bit by bit.

  • Randy Perez

    Your last sentence is ridiculous. People dont read the next verse after that. He told them to buy a sword to fulfill prophecy.
