|Cartoon published in January 1953.|
While native Yakhine-Buddhists were lying dead at the stomping feet of laughing Mujahid Giant -- in his hand was a terrified Yakhine girl going to be devoured -- and while Yakhine-Buddhist families were fleeing from their ancestral homes in their villages being burned down by Bengali-Muslims coming from East Pakistan (now Bangladesh), Burma's then Prime Minister U Nu (a so-called devout Buddhist) was peacefully and comfortably meditating in Rangoon under the protection of armed soldiers who wouldn’t lift a finger to help his fellow Yakhine-Buddhists greatly suffering under Bengali-Muslims’ genocidal assaults.
That single comical and cartoonish illustration from more than 60 years ago still accurately reflects what has been still going on right now in our Arakan.
Under the great leadership of Burmese Buddhists like President Thein Sein and that Nobel-laureate Aung San Suu Kyi who really desire themselves to be portrayed as “Peace-loving Great Statesmen” we the native Yakhine-Buddhist are still being raped and burned and murdered by the illegal Bengali-Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh exactly same as what were happening and being depicted in that single comical illustration exactly 60 years ago.
Actually that armed solider doing nothing but quietly standing with a rifle on his shoulder at the lower-right corner of that cartoon even reminded me of now-disgraced-and-jailed Colonel Aung Gyi the absolutely corrupt Na-Sa-Ka Chief who deliberately didn’t give the order to shoot at the illegal Bengali-Muslims rioting and burning down the whole Maungdaw town in June 2012.

Later during the so-called Armed-Democracy under U Nu and Socialist Pha-sa-pa-la rule, started in 1948 and eventually ended by General Ne Win’s bloodied military coup in 1962, at least 200 to 300 Yakhine and Burmese villages were totally destroyed and their Buddhist inhabitants massacred by the Mujahid insurgents (Kalar-zoe) of those same Bengali-Muslim illegals from Bangladesh.
Those Buddhist and Yakhine villages with surrounding fertile-paddy-lands and adjacent plentiful-fishing-grounds violently taken over by the Bengali-Muslim genociders are still being illegally occupied nowadays by the Bengali-Muslim descendants of those genocidal Bengali-Muslims from 1940s and 1950s.
Today all these large Bengali-Muslim or Kalar villages with traditional Buddhist names like Tha-beik-taung (Alms-bowl-mountain), Thain-taung (Monastery-hall-mountain), and Kyaung-daw (Royal-Monastery) etcetera were Burmese or Yakhine-Buddhist villages originally.
And anyone with a right mind can easily reach a conclusion that those original Buddhists would not just peacefully transfer their large ancestral villages into the brutal hands of Bengalis (or East-Pakistanis back then) whose evil religion Islam has never ever tolerated our gentle religion Buddhism.
They had to leave their villages and their fertile paddy lands and their plentiful fishing grounds into the hands of evil Muslims just only because they were being ROBBED-RAPED-BURNED-KILLED by the Bengali-Muslim illegals in 1940s and 1950s. Those Buddhist villagers were forced to leave or their lives were simply terminated by the genocidal Bengali-Muslims.
During those days in the 1940s and 50s there were no worldwide media reaching remote places like Norther-SArakan, UN wasn’t even heard of, no INGOs were there, and forget about the International Red Cross (ICRC). No Buddhist had ever dared or even known their legal-birth-rights to demand the resettlement and reoccupation of their ancestral villages.

The Bengali-Muslims’ self-proclaimed race “Rohingya” invented only in 1951 was not widely known or used during those days and even the 1953 Cartoon described the commonly-hated Benglai-Muslims as Mujahids adapted from their own term “The Mujahid Rebellion” started in late 1940s by the Bengali-Muslims of Maungdaw and Butheedoung wildly dreaming to secede from the Union of Burma and join the Islamic East Pakistan (now Bangladesh after 1971 Bangladeshi War of Independence from Pakistan).
The term Rohingya was first mentioned in the Burma Parliament in 1951 by Muslim Maungdaw Pha-sa-pa-la MP Abdul Zor Phor after that power-mad and mildly-delusional U Nu abandoned Yakhine-Buddhists and made a deal with devil by forming un-holy alliance with Bengali-Muslims so that he would win the general elections just merely by Muslim votes which were a substantial voting-block in post-colonial Burma.
And he did of course win every election till Ne Win kicked his mad-arse out and put him in jail for a very long time in 1962.
|Modern day Bengali-Muslim Mujahids.|
Of course the sole reason for that invented race Rohingya was to re-establish their Bengali-Muslim illegals as a so-called thousand-years-old ethnic tribe of Burma after they had lost their little war of secession in their failed Mujahid Rebellion. Burmese called that Bengali rebellion “Kalar-zoe Insurgency (Bad-Kalar Insurgency)”.
The term “Rohingya” as a new race is a strategic about-turn to survive and also is a propagandized term to garner international support in their fight to keep on holding their illegally-attained lands from the native Yakhine-Buddhists who have every right to take their ancestral lands back.
