Rohingya Muslims committing crimes against infidels confirms Amnesty International

Cox’s Bazar (Bangladesh): 

Hindu residents of Chikanchari in the troubled Rakine state of Myanmar had a miraculous escape from a killer squad of Rohingya militants who had butchered Hindu inhabitants of neighbouring villages. After a long march from their village, they arrived at Bangladesh’s Cox’s Bazar where thousands of Hindus and Rohingya refugees had already migrated from the neighbouring country after the violence that was unleashed on 25 August last year.

The tales narrated by the inhabitants of Chikanchari have been corroborated by  Amnesty International which names the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) or Harakah al-Yakin as having carried out the carnage resulting in the death of 99 persons from Hindu villages in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.

Yezidis and Bangladeshi Hindus: A modern day Exodus story

By: Rachel Avraham, Israel National News.

In the spirit of this time of year, we should recall the plight of the Yezidi and Bangladeshi Hindu people, who are experiencing a modern day form of slavery and flight as we speak.

Bangladesh has now been independent for 48 years but during this period of time, Shipan Kumer Basu, the President of the World Hindu Struggle, reported that only the Muslims obtained their freedom: “The 25 million minorities in the country are freedom fighters due to their perseverance in the face of adversity.  During the War of Bangladeshi Independence, the minorities suffered unspeakable atrocities.   In 1971, Hindus were massacred and raped by the Pakistanis and their Muslim Bengali allies.  100 million Hindus fled to India in order to save their lives.”
