Pope and the Muslim Card: Pity the Buddhists and Hindus of the Chittagong Hill Tracts and Rakhine

http://moderntokyotimes.com/?p=8106 "Decade after decade the indigenous Buddhists and Hindus of both regions face Islamization by stealth. Hence, it was hoped that the Pope would raise awareness because various indigenous groups feel abandoned internationally. Instead, the Pope, just like the mass W...

Hindu Poet Denounces Fake News!

A Hindu poet penned this raw, powerful, heart wrenching poem... Here is a little background...Hindu villagers were slaughtered en masse by Muslim terrorists and the mainstream media have gone to great lengths to manipulate the facts... http://i68.tinypic.com/23vlq2p.jpg http://i65.tinypic.com/vo06tw...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

This thread has gone off-topic, but in a fascinating and possibly fruitful way. Is there any merit in starting a new thread about the media which we use to access the news, and the processes we all use (conscious and unconscious) in prioritising and favouring some sources over others? I'm conscious...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Our views about any issue is inevitably the result of what we read and our sources of information. The Western paints a narrative that the Rohingya are helpless and innocent victims of violence. The Asian press, in various languages catering to the billions of Indians, Chinese and Asians however gi...

Here's a thorough backgrounder from Al Jazeera - http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/features/2017/08/rohingya-muslims-170831065142812.html - and it doesn't look much different from what's in the (responsible!)

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Two "Rohingya" boys aka Bengali boys ... These kids are victims. And so are many adults who have nothing to do with violence and extremism but just want to live a decent life peacefully. Yes, they are...victims of religious indoctrination. What about these victims? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

You won't hear this from the mainstream media. It's not about the right or left, in my opinion, it's about the truth. The speaker sounds quite weird to me because he said the term "Palestinian" is made up, as though the 800,000 or so people who fled Palestine in 1948 (whenever), running for their l...

Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

My fellow Buddhists, this is a must listen... Many thanks, Kusala, it is indeed very interesting. I could only listen to about a third of it, but will return to it later. I'd never heard a sustained exposition which blamed the Muslims before; obviously, the media in the West are keen to portray thi...

Re: Buddha's skin colour
