ARNO Press release: Rebuttal to Eleven Media false report

Rebuttal to Eleven Media false report

Our attention has been drawn to the news item appeared in Eleven Media, Yangon, dated 05/05/2013 under caption, “Three Rohingya organizations are reportedly masterminding a religious war against Myanmar” accusing that Rohingya Solidarity Organization (RSO), Arakan Rohingya National Organization (ARNO), and Rohingya National Security Council (RNSC) are reportedly supporting and manipulating the plot. Their members have already collected weapons for the war. The Muslim living in Myanmar, especially hardcore members are campaigning for enlisting for their conspiracy.
Arakan Rohingya National Organisation (ARNO) totally rejects this unsubstantiated news report or accusation as ‘fabricated and nonsense’ intended to damage the reputation of ARNO and to incite public opinion against the Rohingya people who have been facing ethnic cleansing and crimes of genocide in Burma. We have never heard of any organization by the name of Rohingya National Security Council (RNSC), and ARNO never has had such a meeting or discussion with RSO or so-called RNSC anywhere.

We strongly condemn the Eleven Media Group for this unethical reporting. The news group is actively engaged in making propaganda and fuelling anti-Muslim deadly violence in Arakan and other parts of Burma since June 2012 that earn it bad name internationally.

We reiterate that we are committed to remain a community within Arakan, and that ARNO is a peaceful political movement committed to pursue a peaceful political settlement of the long standing Rohingya problem.

We demand Eleven Media to substantiate its racially motivated dishonest report.
