Quote:
Buddhist monks, politicians and other ethnic Rakhine figures are kindling hatred toward Muslim Rohingya in an area plagued by sectarian violence, Myanmar’s president, Thein Sein, has warned in a report.

In an assessment of the role of Buddhists in unrest in Rakhine (Arakan) state, which has left scores dead on both sides and displaced tens of thousands of people, Sein also said ethnic Rakhine could not accept the Rohingya as fellow citizens, Agence France-Presse reported.

As part of efforts to raise awareness of killings of the Rohingya in western Myanmar, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu visited the country on Aug. 8. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s wife, Emine Erdoğan, and daughter, Sümeyye Erdoğan, as well as the foreign minister’s wife, Sare Davutoğlu, accompanied the minister, who met with Sein during his visit, discussing both the humanitarian aid efforts being carried out by Turkey and the Rohingya Muslims’ situation.

Decades of discrimination have left the Rohingya stateless, and Myanmar’s government considers their 800,000-strong population as foreigners, while many citizens see them as illegal immigrants from neighboring Bangladesh and view them with hostility.

“Political parties, some monks and some individuals are increasing the ethnic hatred. They even approach and lobby both the domestic and overseas Rakhine community,” Sein said in a report sent to Myanmar’s union parliament on Aug. 17. “Rakhine people are thinking [of terrorizing] the Bengali Muslims living across the country,” he said, using a term frequently used in Myanmar for Rohingya.

[media sensationalism]

Simple training of newly-deployed units pertaining to an obvious OPSEC vulnerability represented by social media is turned by an opportunistic journalistic into some kind of ZOMG new threat. :roll:

Yeah, you're in the right place if you have exams tomorrow. wswartzendruber for example found out a major video game was available a day before his exam.

So they're trying to appeal to Demokrats and conscientious objectors.

Muslim radio station fined for saying gay people should be tortured

Quote:
"If there are two such persons among you, that do this evil, the shameful act,
what do you have to do? Torture them; punish them; beat them and give them mental torture."


Nice.

Given the special influence they have, a fine unless severe seems insufficient.

Fuck that; their broadcasting license should be suspended. They were fined only £4,000. I'd just keep paying the fine and keep saying the same things. That fine is not even in line with the costs of simple advertising. It's not even a slap on the wrist.

They go on and on, too. She also hints that such people should be killed:
Quote:
"Mental punishment means rebuke them, beat them, humiliate them, admonish and curse them, and beat them up. This command was sent in the beginning because capital punishment had not yet been sent down."

They should have been fined more like £100,000, and told that if it happens again, their broadcasting license will be suspended for six months.

I thought that carried a heavier tariff, rather than just a fine ? I don't know if the police
have looked at this.

Edit - treading carefully here (I'm a bit leery about posting anything to do with
"minority groups" that hasn't been previously reported on, with the way things are going here,
there's always the vague chance of 'incitement of racial hatred' being levelled. Which
even if a bit far fetched, speaks volumes about the UK) - look at certain political
parties as an example.

I don't need to name them, but if their leaders stood up and said something similar,
there'd be calls for a harsher response.

I find the problem here is that there doesn't seem to be clear rules. In the US and Canada you have laws and a supreme court. seems so murky here. speech there is protected quite vigorously by courts.

in any case, I am sure you are safe. I won't report you to the thought police :)

Wow. I have a completely different way of doing things. In my little world, people can say whatever they want. But if I'm gay, and a group sets out to persecute me, I'll probably kill one of them and hang their body in public for his friends to see.

If that ever gets outside your little world, it may be illegal in the US. Inciting violence, and now, the sentence multiplier of "hate crime."

That's one form of expression. Just to make sure people get the point, you might want to tack a note to his forehead, though.
