Myanmar: Director of Religious Affairs Allegedly Bans Quran Reading At Homes

By Emperor

The Rohingya Muslims according to experts on genocide face the “final stages of genocide.” Part and parcel of the persecution of Rohingya has been targeting their religious identity and practice. According to Rohingya activists on the ground previously this meant that the public practice and appearance of Islam was restricted, now it has been extended to religious practice at home.

One activist, Aung Aung Sittwe, has reported that the District Director of Religious Affairs in the capital city of NayPyiDaw, has instructed subordinates not to let Muslims learn the Qur’an at home any longer. How this can or will be implemented is anyone’s guess. It is, if authentic, one more salvo in the anti-Rohingya campaign led by bigoted military officials and Buddhist nationalists.

The Rohingya are not welcome in Myanmar’s public school system, among other limitations the stateless ethnic minority faces in their homeland.

    Bu…bu….but women! and FREEDOMZ!!! a…and DEMOCRACY!!!….

    Another moronic right wing twit, dime a dozen, I have encountered these fools so many times on other websites, bitching about ‘EVILZ MULTICULTURALISMZ!!!’, don’t expect him to acknowledge his country’s fault, to him that is another country’s duty not THE GOOD OL’US OF A’s since AMERICA CAN DO NO WRONGZ!!! /s

    Exactly, how anyone can do with less is beyond me

  • Tanveer Wan Khanobi

    Not enough, is it? XD

  • Tanveer Wan Khanobi

    Indeed there are but I only had 500 ml ones available

  • Friend of Bosnia

    I think there are 500 ml and 1 liter bottles

  • Friend of Bosnia

    If you can get hold of a plastic laboratory squeeze bottle (that too has a curved neck) that will work fine too.

    I like to be thorough, what can I say XD

  • 786 True; it’s always Bad Things which spur a “media feeding frenzy.” The daily fare is small bad things, with the occasional story about somepony being good.

  • 786 Really! That can be problematic then…

  • Tanveer Wan Khanobi

    I find that 500ml isn’t enough

  • 786 No need for you to endure that! I just bring a bottle of water into the privy since bidets are somewhat scarce in the US. There is a company that sells special tops which fit any standard-thread water bottle; the tip is long and curved, you get the idea. I have, however, become adept at using a bottle with a regular top. Improvise, Adapt, Overcome!

    Man, I went to Russia for a week a fortnight ago. Using toilet paper alone is just grim.

  • Khizer

    Better not give the Myanmar government any ideas…

    That’s not the worst of it, soon Myanmar will ban washroom bidets, since washing your ass leads terrorism and radicalism. /sarcasm

    (If they do in fact do that in the near future, remember I PREDICTED IT!!!)

    I’m not being cynical, negative world events are covered much more because they’re considered far more newsworthy and interesting than a cop playing basketball with some kids or a Gazan with Downs Syndrome becoming a teacher.

  • Just_Stopping_By

    You’re too young to be such a cynic. 24/7 news can also show us the wonderful parts of the world.

    You should also stop being so lazy. In fact, we insist that you march straight to your room and get on your computer every day to learn to stop being so lazy. 😀

  • Tanveer Wan Khanobi

    At least in the old times people didn’t have 24/7 news to remind them how terrible the world is 😀

    And thank you for the welcome back, I’ll probably be disappearing again because I’m lazy XD

  • Just_Stopping_By

    Yes, but preventing those not of the same religion as the rulers from practicing their religion is not exactly new to these times. Too many rulers have thought and still think that there should be only one religion in their domain.

    Putting that aside, good to see you back!

  • Tanveer Wan Khanobi

    What terrible times we live in right now

  • Friend of Bosnia

    What miserable SWINE. And nobvody does anything about it! Well, one thing is for sure. I will not visit Burma, even if I was offered it for free, all five-star service, with all expenses covered and if they actualy paid me for every day I spent there.
