 It would be best if they were not here. I do not want to see them in this country.
 Since the dawn of history Indians have been the leaders of attacks against the Bur-
 mans on behalfof the white faces.

 [Buddhist] Brother, you might already have heard of the news about the Buddhist
 mob in Rakhine lynching a group ofRohingyas in broad daylight... Out offear and
 despair, I have looked at different possibilities ofgoing to work in Malaysia or trying
 the visa lottery to the United States. But the truth is I don't really have any prospect
for leaving my birthplace. Iam stuck here.
-a   Burmese Muslim  resident, 7 July 20173
