Fake ‘Rohingya’ Persecution Pictures Proliferate on Web

30

Muslims are waging jihad in Burma. But the Buddhists aren’t having it. Burma is 90% Buddhist. These are a peaceful people. The Muslims have brought war to Burma. Bodh Gaya, the holiest site for the Buddhists the world over, was bombed in a series of Islamic terror attacks. Read more on the jihad in Burma here: Rohingya Hoax.

Anywhere Muslims immigrate, conflict follows. And so it goes in Burma. To shore up their false narrative, Muslims are circulating fake pictures. They’ve learned well from the “Palestinians.”

“The fake pictures of the Rohingya crisis,” BBC, June 6, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The plight of Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar was thrust into the spotlight last month after thousands of migrants were left stranded at sea – but not all the images being shared online are what they seem to be.

The Rohingyas are a distinct Muslim ethnic group mainly living in Myanmar, also known as Burma. They are not recognised as citizens of Myanmar and face persecution in the majority Buddhist country, where many live in crowded camps. Powerful and seemingly genuine pictures and videos emerged of what Rohingyas must endure in Myanmar after thousands of migrants were left adrift with low supplies of food and water last month. But BBC Trending found some of the images being shared online don’t show Rohingyas at all – but instead come from other disasters and news events.

Many of these images are graphic and disturbing. One of the photos, for instance, that shows up in search results shows Buddhist monks standing among piles of body parts. On Facebook and Twitter, the photograph has been cited as an example of Buddhist violence against Rohingyas. But the picture is not from Burma at all – it was actually taken in the aftermath of an earthquake in China in April 2010.

Another picture shows a man on fire running across the road. One group that shared the photo on Facebook suggesting the man suffered horrific abuse – that he was chopped up and burnt alive. But the real story is much different. In fact, the photo is of Jamphel Yeshi, a Tibetan activist who set himself on fire in Delhi in 2012 to protest against the Chinese president’s visit to India.

There are many disturbing pictures of children circulating as well. One shows a boy tied to a wooden pole, with the marks of beatings visible across his back. While online posts call him a Rohingya boy, he’s actually a seven-year-old Thai child who was beaten up by a relative for stealing sweets earlier this year.

Then there’s this photo which has been widely shared, particularly in India and Pakistan, showing a motorcycle riding across the hands of school students who are lying on the ground with outstretched arms. The incident was actually a stunt by a martial arts trainer in south India:

The caption reads “Burma’s Muslims” in Urdu … Rohingyafake1
… however it’s really an AFP photo of a stunt in India, as the BBC reported in 2009

Rohingyafake2

Other misleading images traced by BBC Trending using online photo search tools include a large crowd of people laying on the ground (actually of protesters being detained in Thailand in 2004), one showing burnt bodies (in reality from an oil tanker blaze in 2010 in the Democratic Republic of Congo) and a grisly photo of children with bloodstained clothes which apparently comes from Sri Lanka’s decades-long conflict. These and other images have been shared thousands of times on Facebook mostly by people hoping to support the Rohingyas.

“We appreciate everyone’s concern but encourage everybody to always check carefully before using images,” says UK-based Rohingya activist and blogger Jamila Hanan. “Whenever the Rohingya hits media headlines these same photos are redistributed with some new ones included.”

“There are so many genuine images of tragic scenes of the Rohingya that are genuine, there is simply no need for anyone to fabricate anything,” Hanan told BBC Trending. “The most tragic images are the real ones.”

    its take a lot, a whole lot, to get the REAL religion of Peace, The Buddhists, angry. they are so peaceful. they love life. love peace. hate anger. hate hatred. hate conflict. normally just turn a blind eye to persecution.

    so why are they attacking and persecuting these muslims ??????

    well any reader on this site knows why. muslims cause this sort of trouble everywhere they go.

    the muslims have been attacking, murdering, raping, and killing the peaceful buddhists there for years..

    they have had enough, finally after yrs and yrs of persecution from the filthy muslims who hate Burma, hate the people, hate their religion, and hate everything about them

    Imams there have paid followers money to go and rape and kill peaceful buddhist girls ! some rape but didn’t get paid by the imam, b/c they didnt kill her as well. barbaric scum.

    they try to marry off the buddhists so they become muslim. they smash their idols… ( any idea where they may have got this idea from … think back 1400 yrs to Mo re-entering Mecca ??).

    they have statue worshipers… no matter how peaceful the lovely buddhists message is !! islam the cult of death and murder must reign supreme !!

    what filth. the wonderful peaceful religion of the buddhists have had enough after 50 yrs. many many killed in the name of islam – like every bloody other damn place these filth come into.

    hate everyone hate everything. see a recurring theme here ??

    I’ll never forget the news footage of O-ring’s visit to Myanmar, manhandling the amazing Aung San Suu Kyi, who was clearly distressed by his attentions. And the purpose of the trip? To demand better treatment of these filthy lice, which belong back in Bangladesh, if anywhere.

  • Curious Quisling

    Yeah, and guess what. Obama is agreeing to bring these Burmese Muslims into the US as refugees! Thousands of them are coming here to be resettled. So the message is: got a problem with your Muslims? Let us know, and we’ll take them off your hands.

    • Curious Quisling

      Enjoy.

      The whole resettlement thing is an attack upon the U.S. Obama and his minions should be on trial, convicted and hung. All these muz in our country will need to be stripped of citizenship and sent to countries of origin, Saudi Arabia for Sunnis or Iran for Shia. Islam is an ideology hate and war – not simply a religion – and it is our self-proclaimed enemy.

        Islam has been an enemy of the West for centuries. It was driven out of Europe and has been allowed to return. People like CNN’s Burnett and Cuomo see no problem here. Enjoy the cultural enrichment.

        • EXT4411

          I think you need a lesson in history islam was in Europe for over 900 years in the south of Spain referred to as the golden years. They had hospitals libraries universities. The christian Lords would send their children to be educated to these institutions setup by muslims. Alot of what you have in the west is based in what muslims in Europe had developed during that time so please please read and study history before making rash statements.

            You’re full of sh*t Ext441, er Mohommed !~! take your lying taqiyya elsewhere. ppl are awake to your stupid lies here.

            muslims are supremacists with little or no regard to human life, especially if that life happens not to believe in your murderous unspiritual satanic profit ( ‘f’ intentional !)

            ISIS = muslims = Islam = Mohommed = EXT4411

    I’m so glad my Prime Minister said Nope, Nope, Nope when asked if he would let them into Australia. He has not changed his mind & that’s it. You come via the front door immigration or not at all. Most of them on the boats are economic refugees from Bangladesh & the Rohingya ones are animals. They have been rioting in their camps because they are not allowed food in the sleeping quarters & they wanted to celebrate a “religious event” & they don’t give a s#!t about the rules, that was the women & children. They are violent thugs who have been targeting the Buddhists for years. The majority Buddhist nation has said enough is enough & want them gone as they are not native to Burma but illegal invaders. They are not too happy about being sent to the US either as they want to stay in Malaysia or Indonesia which are predominately moslem countries. So America prepare for trouble because you are REALLY talking uneducated third world moslems here who don’t have a hope of assimilating into your culture and society.

      You have a clear vision about the Rohingya problem in Myanmar & I appreciate your comment that you discussed behalf of the Buddhists of that country. I’m from Sri Lanka.

        This means what, we will be standing in front of the false moon god allah or the True God of Abraham & seated on his right side his son who sacrificed himself on the cross so we might be saved? allah & his false prophet mohammud sacrificed nothing for their believers they only taught them how to hate & kill no TRUE loving god wants his followers to kill in his name.

    I had thought the rohingya were NOT a distinct ethnicity but merely Bangladeshi muslims doing what muslims do best: invade and ethnically cleanse non-muslim lands.

  • defcon 4

    Afghanistan once had a large population of Buddhists (second only to Hindus). Can anyone guess why there aren’t ANY Buddhists or Hindus left in Afghanistan? HINT: think of who destroyed the 2000 year-old statues once called the Buddhas of Bamiyan.
