A REPORT RIDDLED WITH HYPE, HYPERBOLE AND HUBRIS

CLAIMS THE MOST ABSURD NUMBERS


OF KILLED AND RAPED VICTIMS
By Rick Heizman, May 22, 2019
In 2018, the Ontario International Development Agency of Ottawa, Canada, published a
‘report’ titled, ‘Forced Migration of Rohingya: The Untold Experience’.
This 109 page ‘report’ is absolutely riddled with hype, hyperbole, and hubris, shameful lies,
manipulative fakery, absence of perspective, hidden agendas, ignorance, arrogance, blatant
bias, and gross demonization of Burmese and Rakhine Buddhists.
Throughout the entire 109 page there is NOT EVEN ONE SENTENCE about the massive
numbers of Buddhist, Hindu, and ethnic tribal minority people chased out of their villages,
slaughtered, executed, hacked with swords, and terrorized by the Bengali Muslims
(Rohingya) who launched a jihad against ALL non-Muslims with the goal of exterminating ALL
non-Muslims, and declaring the land an autonomous Islamic State, in a wanton genocidal
ethnic cleansing. And, the Bengali Muslims have launched these kinds of systematically
planned genocidal attacks again and again and again in 1942, 1947, 1948, the Mujahid era of
the 1950s and 1960s, 1988, 1994, 2012, 2016, and 2017.
Let’s jump in and expose this ‘report’ -
Report Claims:
On average, it took 5.6 days to travel from Myanmar to Bangladesh.
Reality:
Most of the refugees in Bangladesh
fled from Maungdaw Township, and
the majority of those villagers lived
LESS than 10 kilometers / 6 miles
from the border of Bangladesh, in
fact, at least half of them lived LESS
than 5 kilometers / 3 miles from the
border - a 1 - 3 hour easy walk for
most. A much smaller number of
refugees fled from Buthidaung
Township which is 20 kilometers / 12
miles from the Bangladesh border.
And, I have translated MANY
captured ARSA militant statements in
which there is an incredible amount of
info and evidence, including
descriptions of fleeing to the Bangladesh border after their wanton genocide against the non-
Muslims failed. The figure of 5.6 days is completely made-up and false, and is hoisted upon
the readers of the report to foment hatred towards, and demonize the Rakhine and Burmese
Buddhists.

Report Claims:
• Estimation of the number of murders is 23,962,
• of rapes is 17,718,
• of a family member thrown into a fire is 34,436.
(This is how the ‘report’ reported these figures. Family members thrown into fires are, oddly,
even more numerous than murders, and I would assume that a person thrown into a fire does
not survive. But, this is all FAKE as you will see.)

Reality:
Essentially ALL of the (so-called and unproven) massacres, and rapes were reported as
taking place within the 10 day period after the massive surprise attacks by the Bengali
Muslims (Rohingya) on August 25, 2017.
• That means that 2396 Muslims were killed EACH AND EVERY DAY on average (supposedly).
• In addition, somehow, Burmese army troops threw a staggering 3444 Muslims into fires
EACH AND EVERY DAY on average (somehow), and I would assume most victims would
not survive that.
• So, let’s put those two impossibly ridiculous numbers together and we now have an
astronomical 5840 Muslims murdered and/or burned alive EACH AND EVERY DAY on
average. And where are these massive numbers of bodies? 58,400 bodies. Where are they?
• An unbelievable (literally) 1772 woman were raped EACH AND EVERY DAY on average.
How is that even possible? Especially considering that in those first 10 days after the
Muslims attacked everyone the army was overwhelmed with rescuing villagers, evacuating
villages, tending to thousands of wounded, bringing supplies of food to desperate villages,
battling with Bengali Muslim militants and terrorists, dealing with landmines that the Bengali
Muslims had made and
laid, dealing with dozens
of broken bridges that the
Bengali Muslims had
blown up, etc.

ABSURD NUMBERS ARE REMINISCENT OF THE
BANGLADESH WAR OF INDEPENDENCE
Those absurd numbers are reminiscent of the numbers of killed and raped victims in a much
much larger war, in fact, the bloodiest war in human history considering the number of victims
killed and raped in a given time frame - and that is the 9 month long Bangladesh War of
Independence in 1971.
During that war, where Bengalis in what was then East Pakistan fought for Independence
from the Urdu speaking Pakistanis an estimated 3 million people were killed in just 9 months.
That translates as just over 11,000 people killed EACH AND EVERY DAY on average,
FOR 270 DAYS.
Both sides were Muslim, by the way, and both sides also took the opportunity to decimate the
Hindu and Buddhist minorities with massive numbers of them slaughtered and raped.
During the 9 month war an estimated 200,000 - 400,000 women were raped, which
translates to between 740 - 1480 women were raped EACH AND EVERY DAY on
average, FOR 270 DAYS.

NUMBER OF HOUSES BURNED AND VANDALIZED


Report Claims:

The estimated number of houses burned is 115,026, the estimated number of houses
vandalized is 113,282.
Reality:
Now this report has already stated absurdities that warp all logic, but this is going even
deeper into the twilight zone. Is it even possible to burn more houses than actually existed?
I estimate that the number of villages in northern Rakhine State may be roughly 1000.
Small villages may have 25 - 50 houses. Medium sized villages may have 60 -100 houses.
Large villages may have 100 - 200 houses.
Before anything at all was burned - THERE WERE NOT EVEN THAT MANY HOUSES!
And, don’t forget (if you know, or note this if you don’t know) I know these villages! I have
spent more time in these villages than almost any other foreigner!

The odious ‘report’ goes on and on and on for 109 pages of pure B__LS__T.

There is not even ONE sentence that even MENTIONS the Buddhist, Hindu and ethnic
minorities, and their burnt villages, vandalized villages, broken livelihoods, and their deaths,
wounded, and crippled victims - and THEY WERE THE ONES ATTACKED!

This ‘report’ published by the Ontario International Development Agency of Ottawa, Canada is
a pure propaganda screed, designed to fool naive Canadians, and other Westerners, and to
foment absolute hatred toward the Buddhists.

I think the authors should be held criminally libel for foisting this obscene hate screed upon
the international community. I will gladly participate in any prosecution of those responsible.
