India is going through a phenomenal transformation politically, socially, and religiously. It is exciting. But it is also scary and quite different than the popular image of a Nehru-Gandhi’s India.

Feb. 27 marks four months since the launch of Operation 1027, a game-changing offensive against the Myanmar military regime by the Three Brotherhood Alliance of ethnic armies in the north of the country.

The alliance of three ethnic resistance organizations – the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA), the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA), and the Arakan Army (AA) – had been broadly supportive of the National Unity Government (NUG), the shadow opposition.

In defence of Aung San Suu Kyi

Published 22 Feb 2024 

Many in Myanmar have condemned what they perceive asseriously flawed Western criticism of the Burmese ex-leader. 

On 18 October 2023, the Brighton and Hove City Council in the United Kingdom revoked the Freedom of the City awarded to Burmese politician Aung San Suu Kyi in 2011. Their special meeting lasted only 18 minutes, with Councillor Bella Sankey, the Labour leader of the Council, stating that it was not right to honour a person who “presided over the ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Muslim Rohingya community” and was “an enabler to racial and religious discrimination and ethnic cleansing”. Sankey was supported by all 50 or so of the Council members present.

In the wake of a nationwide conscription law, Myanmars junta is seeking to recruit Rohingya muslims to join their army. They are offering freedom of movement to those restricted to camps from displacement in the Rakhine state as a way to entice them into military service.

Bangladesh is closely watching the fighting in Myanmar's neighboring Rakhine state


Fighting between Myanmar's junta and the Arakan Army (AA) rebel group in western Myanmar's Rakhine state has intensified. Casualties have also been recorded in Bangladesh, with two people killed by an errant mortar round this month and several injured by gunshots from across the border. Rebel fighters have recently taken control of the Myanmar border region, and are seeking to oust junta forces from elsewhere in the state.

A New Era is Dawning For the People of Myanmar’s Rakhine State

After years of conflict and ethnic cleansing, recent military gains by the Arakan Army have opened up fresh possibilities for the region’s future. 

On February 8, the rebel Arakan Army (AA) seized Mrauk-U, the former capital of the Arakan kingdom in Rakhine State, western Myanmar, along with the towns of Minbya and Kyauktaw. In fact, since the resumption of war between the AA and the country’s military junta on November 13, the AA has now successfully taken over six cities in the state, as well as two cities in neighboring southern Chin state, while destroying at least seven navy vessels and a helicopter. These ongoing victories have invigorated the long-standing dreams of Rakhine nationalists for an independent Arakan.

Reports emerging from Myanmar on Thursday have indicated that an ethnic army in the country has launched an attack on yet another major city in the west, with the state’s capital not far behind. The Arakan Army (AA), a rebel group, has intensified its fighting against Myanmar’s army in the strategically significant city of Sittwe in Rakhine province. This area holds particular importance due to India’s construction of a port for connectivity to its northeastern states via the Bay of Bengal.

Rebel gains on junta forces owe more to China’s tacit support than the West’s ineffectual soft and quiet diplomacy

Myanmar all but fell from the international conscience in 2023, with the world subsumed by the Ukraine war, conflict in the Middle East and the dumpster fire of domestic American politics Myanmar, which competed with Sudan for most neglected conflict, was further marginalized by misconceptions that its post-coup civil war had settled into a grinding post-coup stalemate.

Since November, Rakhine State in Myanmar has been marred by renewed violence between the Myanmar military and the Arakan Army, shattering a year-long unofficial ceasefire and exacerbating an already dire situation for the Rohingya population. This latest wave of conflict is not only deepening the existing humanitarian crisis, but also leading to large-scale displacement of the Rohingya, further compounding the suffering of one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.

Rohingya: MSF Calls Attention to the ongoing Rohingya Crisis

MSF
February 1'2024 


On the 29th of January 2024, Doctors Without Borders (MSF) launched a short animation film, "Lost at Sea", that illustrates the harsh reality Rohingya endure as they try to seek safety—and their resilience.

The film “Lost at Sea” is based on the experience of Muhib, a Rohingya man who fled Myanmar and made a dangerous journey across the sea to seek safety in Malaysia. He was stranded for more than two weeks on board a fishing boat in the Andaman Sea, full of men, women and children also fleeing for their lives. He witnessed 27 people die onboard. Passengers had no choice but to put their bodies into the sea as no help arrived. In the film, dream-like flashbacks tell the story of Muhib. He is haunted by a song his mother sang him in Myanmar. He tries to remember the reasons that forced him to flee in the first place.
