Comments Off on Jews under Nazis’ Democracy and Rohingya under Burmese Democracy transition
Once in power, Hitler moved quickly to end German democracy. Jews, who numbered about 525,000 in Germany were the principal target of Nazi hatred. The Nazis identified Jews as a race and defined this race as “inferior.” They also spewed hate-mongering propaganda that unfairly blamed Jews for Germany’s economic depression and the country’s defeat in World War I.

After a nationwide strike against Ne Win regime, military junta held power in the name of democracy transition but in reality, they kept Rohingya, who numbered about two million in a frame of Genocide; target of Buddhist hatred, identified them as illegal Bengali, spread hate-mongering propaganda using national media and extremist monks and blame them a threat for national security.

According to Nazis, only Germans can be citizens and no Jew can be a German citizen. In Burmese Democracy transition, only Buddhists are citizens; no Rohingya and Muslim can be a Myanmar citizen, refer them Thawe-Naw or mixed blood or aliens.

People in Germany who are not citizens must obey special laws for foreigners. In Arakan State of Myanmar, Rohingya must obey special laws; they have been being verified through SweTinSeik, framing, recording and registering since 1970s.

Their National Identities were confiscated in 1990s and replaced them with “White Cards” referring temporary citizens during the era of military junta. But now, in Suu Kyi’s government, Rohingyas are being forced to accept NV Cards. The villagers are being threatened to accept cards or face action. National Verification Card(NVC) is worse than White Cards. It is very similar Nazi’s identification of “inferior race” to Jews.

“Myanmar says the NVC is first step before the securitization of citizenship in accordance with the 1982 law, which defines citizenship based on ethnicity but in reality, it is against 1982 law. Those whose parents or grandparents held NRC, they don’t need to hold NVC according to the law” said Saed from Thae Chaung concentration camp of Sittwe.

Only German citizens can vote, be employed or hold public office. Rohingya who were citizens till 1990 and had right to vote and to be elected for parliament constituency, are being kept in the ghettos accusing them illegal immigrants from Bangladesh.

In 2012, the State staged a genocidal violence against Rohingya and named it communal conflict between Rakhine and Rohingya, have been being kept all Rohingya in the concentration camps or ghettos as an excuse of security purpose since 2012. Thousands of Rohingya died in the sea while escaping genocidal ghettos of Arakan in risky boats.

In Nazi era, all foreigners who have come to Germany since 1914 must be expelled. Former President Thein Sein of Myanmar demanded United Nation to expel all Rohingya after 2012 violence against them.

According to Nazis, German newspapers must be free of foreign influence. In Myanmar, foreign media is considered as a threat for national security. State controls the media which has been spreading propaganda against Rohingya to drive all of them out of Myanmar.

Since October, 2016 Myanmar military has been committing atrocities against Rohingya as an excuse of ARSA terrorist attacks and from August 25, 2017 to November 2017, thousands of Rohingya civilians were killed, raped, looted, arrested, and burnt their homes.

The UN and the US have both labeled it as “ethnic cleansing,” while the UN human rights chief, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein has been more forthright, hinting he believed there was evidence of “genocide” and calling for those responsible — the country’s top military commanders — to be referred to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, has announced the formation of an international advisory body to help implement the government’s plans for Rakhine and has launched a diplomatic offensive as international criticism mounts over their treatment of the Muslim Rohingya.

The Myanmar government has continuously rebuffed allegations of the use of excessive force and human rights abuses –forced relocation, razing of homes, rape and killing villagers — committed by the military.

“Rohingya under Suu Kyi’s government face such atrocities that is worse than what Jews faced during Holocaust. International Community must take action for the atrocities against Rohingya as soon as possible” said Rawahaung Maung from Pauktaw Concentration camp.
