Peter Murray was also a territorial CAO (Civil Affairs Officer) with the British Army in Northern Arakan during the Second World War.
He was the same Peter Murray mentioned by Robert Mole in his memoirs "The Temple Bells are Calling" about his time in the Arakan.
Following is his 1949 Foreign Office memo outlining the so-called racio-religious troubles in Arakan due to the Bengali Muslims’ relentless intrusion into Burma.

|Buddhist monks protesting against Burma Army killing|
Yakhine Buddhist vigilantes in Arakan.
Sittwe Hospital is now filled with many young Yakhine Buddhist men with gunshot wounds caused by Burmese guns, not Bengali guns, and it boils the red hot blood of our Buddhist monks all over Burma.
Buddhist monks in Burma especially the young ones calling themselves “Yahan-Pyos” hate the Bengali Muslims and they think the job of Burma army is to shoot the Bengali illegals not the Yakhine Buddhist vigilantes killing the Muslims and burning the Bengali wards and villages in the Arakan.

According to U Thar Kyaw the member of Arakan State Parliament for Min Byar constituency, altogether eighteen Muslim houses from Pike-thae Bengali village were completed burnt down.

|Indonesian Police shutting|
down churches & temples.
According to Deputy Mayor Hajjah Illiza Sa'aduddin Djamal, the buildings were illegal because they lacked the right permit. Under the law, private homes cannot be used "for religious ceremonies or functions."
"Aceh is a special territory that enforces Sharia," she said and home churches violate the law because they lack the appropriate building permit (Izin Mendirikan Bangunan in Indonesian).

The Presidential order was on all the media including the president’s office own WWW site. The President has apparently backed down and corrected the serious oversight in dealing with the Multinational Muslim Mafia OIC after the angry mass protests all over Burma.

|Glenn Hubbard the Romney's |
Economist from Columbia.
Having framed this idea as preposterous, Mr. Velshi introduced R. Glenn Hubbard, the dean of Columbia Business School, a Romney campaign adviser and a “very smart man,” as the host put it. So smart, Mr. Velshi told Mr. Hubbard, that “you couldn’t have been involved in the writing of that policy.” Why? “Because you would know that that is just not possible.”
Wearing a dark suit and projecting an air of geeky, avuncular calm, Mr. Hubbard appeared before a blue backdrop festooned with the words “Columbia Business School.” If he was supposed to be cowed or disarmed by the bluster or flattery, he did not show it.

|No OIC Protest by Buddhist monks in Sittwe (October 9).|
“We’re now in U Oattama Park. About 700 to 1,000 monks. But about ten thousand people, I think. The whole main road from the Bangladesh Consulate at West Model Ward is now filled with people. We are all peacefully demonstrating for our demands,” said Venerable U Pyin-nyar-zaw-tah one of the monks leading the protest that day.

|Traffic stood still at a KIA road-block arbitrarily set up|
to rob the travelling public, vehicles, and motorbikes.
Instead of confronting better-armed and more numerous Burma army, various KIA units have been cowardly and violently raiding the villages whether they are Shans or Burmese villages for money and food and fresh recruits and young women to rape, and thus scaring the local people from travelling even on the wide Irrawaddy River.

The term “Shariah” evokes bad memories among its victims as well as opponents who want the abolition or drastic reforms of this Draconian code. Our experience tells us that Shariah is inherently prejudicial to women, non-Muslims and freethinkers and that its language, spirit and above all, execution, go against the spirit, ideals and teaching of Islam as one finds in the Quran.

|Saudi Arabia's Rabita Al |
Alam Al Islami NGO.
Despite what officials state, the Islamists of Bangladesh have been violently urging all non-Muslims to get out of the country. Buddhists, for example, mostly settled in the southeast part of Bangladesh and less than 1% of the population of 150 million, have been struggling to survive. More than 1,000 have fled; the situation is no different for Christians and Hindus.
What is clear is that Rabita Al Alam al Islami, known as Al-Rabita, a powerful Saudi Arabia-based non-governmenal organization [NGO] has taken charge of Islamization, especially in the remote areas. Since 1980, Al-Rabita has been working throughout southeast Bangladesh to convert the hill people to Islam. There is serious concern that Al-Rabita has been funding terrorists.

|Retired Senior General Than Shwe, the Ex-dictator |
(or) the father of Burma's semi-democracy?
And the ceremony was attended by the children and the grandchildren of retired-senior-general Than Shwe as the pagoda itself was donated and sponsored in mid 2000s by the Senior General himself while he was still the all-powerful dictator of Burma.

After attending and participating in the annual General Debate at the UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) Burma President U Thein Sein has landed back at Rangoon International Airport on the morning of October First.
And believe or not there were thousands and thousands of his fellow country men and women welcoming him back home at Rangoon Airport. And it was the very first time in last 60 years many Burmese are so enthusiastic about one of their leaders.
In addition to the senior leaders and people from the ruling party USDP (Union Solidarity and Development Party) his own political party, there were people from all walks of life. Highly visible among the crowd were movie actors and actresses and famous Industrialists. Also were businessmen and women, many young workers from various garment factories, and various ethnic youth groups.

|Border fence on Burma-Bangladesh border.|
Burmese army has begun the process of forming and arming the native Buddhist militia in the Yakhine Buddhist villages along the Burma-Bangladesh border to counter the massive illegal flows of Bengali Muslims from Bangladesh and cross-border raids by the Bengali Muslim insurgents.
As the very first step more than 300 Buddhist villagers from 30 border villages in North-Maungdaw area have been receiving intensive training from the Border Security Forces of Burmese army. The people militia (Pyithusit) training is being conducted at the Na-Sa-Ka 4 Kyain Chaung compound. Na-Sa-Ka is the Burmese acronym for Border Security Forces.

The local authorities and the security forces at Ramu (Panwar) in Bangladesh had completely ignored the warning signs and actual destruction of Buddhist temples and the properties of Buddhists by the extremist Jamaat-e-islami-led Muslim mobs in Ramu district.
The atrocious rioting in Saturday (September 29) when the Muslim mob led by Jamaat-e-Islami destroyed 12 Buddhist temples and many Buddhist homes was the pre-planned co-operation of Bangladeshi authorities, Jamaat, Chibi, BNP parties, fundamentalist extremists, and so-called Rohingyas who have been hell bent on killing Buddhist Yakhines and Islamizing northern Arakan.
