Rohingya Muslims have faced decades of persecution in Myanmar and are not given citizenship. Since last week, attacks against them from Buddhist mobs has erupted again and hundreds of homes have been destroyed. It's estimated that 58000 Rohingyas have made it across the border to Bangladesh.

I knew that already. It used to follow religions similar to Hinduism and Buddhism and local folk traditions. And?

My point is, who cares? It used to be Buddhist, now its Muslim. The Philippines didn't use to be Catholic. People and societies can change religions, no problem. That doesn't justify the genocide of Muslims in Myanmar in any way whatsoever

I'm not saying that it justifies genocide, but how do you think Indonesia became a Muslim country.

People kill yes. Religion does not order them to kill innocent people. What I do not understand is when hearing something sickening like this what is the point of even trying to justify it? It is unjustifiable whoever kills another, and no religion in the world allows the murder of innocent people.

muslims regularly oppress and persecute minorities in their countries so this is no different.
And you're ok with innocent people being slaughtered in their own land? I am a Muslim, and if there is an instance of Muslims oppressing anybody who is of a different religion of course I am absolutely against that as I am absolutely agains what is happening to the Muslims in Myanmar.

good, about time muslims got a taste of their own medicine
tbf not sure why I'm bothering if people are this ignorant but seriously look in to what is happening there. Children are being burnt alive. How on earth can you justify that? And Muslims are getting a taste of their own medicine? Do you think terrorism doesn't effect Muslims? Even in 9/11 Muslims were killed. in Pakistan 132 school children were killed by the Taliban in 2014. Every single day Muslims are being killed in Iraq and these country because of terrorists. And when they attacked England, don't you think we were shocked and hurt? My friend was at the Manchester Arena at the time of the bomb. Don't you think we are afraid of what is happening?

'Own' land? Do you have evidence that this is their land?

They were born there. They live there. They have been living there since the 16th century.

And let's assume they were migrants. Does that make it ok for their children to be burnt alive? For their homes to be destroyed?

I am a bit torn on this issue because the rohingya's are the one who started this fight. Of course retaliation will only recycle the violence but can they make a peace deal or something.
