This illustrates a number of points I have made in the past quite well. You would think that Hindus, who are also a minority like the Rohingyas, wouldn't be part of a Buddhist vs. Muslim clash, and yet the Muslims have attacked them with the intention of forcing them to convert to Islam. What charming people the Rohingyas are. Don't you wish they were your neighbors? Thanks for the heads up ramonmercado, I don't like what happened but I do like being informed.@AlchoPwn some more news of nastiness by Rohingya Muslim militants. You were right, there are two sides to this story.
Rohingya Muslim militants in Myanmar killed dozens of Hindu civilians during attacks last August, according to an investigation by Amnesty International.
The group called Arsa killed up to 99 Hindu civilians in one, or possibly two massacres, said the rights group. Arsa had denied involvement. The killings came in the first days of an uprising against Burmese forces, who are also accused of atrocities. Since August nearly 700,000 Rohingyas and others have fled the violence. The conflict has also displaced members of the majority Buddhist population in Myanmar (also called Burma) as well as members of the Hindu minority. Amnesty says interviews it conducted with refugees in Bangladesh and in Rakhine state confirmed that mass killings carried out by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) took place in a cluster of villages in northern Maungdaw Township at the time of its attacks on police posts in late August.
