Social media is lying to you about Burma’s Muslim ‘cleansing’

Published: July 19, 2012

Don't you wonder sometimes, that the information we are being fed on daily basis can be untrue entirely or exaggerated to the point where it loses all its truth? PHOTO: REUTERS

Social networking sites are abuzz with news about Muslims being killed in Burma.You can see the sporadic posting of pictures by different people with captions like ‘Muslims killing in Burma’, ‘Muslims slaughtered by Buddhists in Burma’ and so on.

Thus, I took on the mission to sort the truth out for myself once and for all and researched some pictures that I felt were dubious. Below are a few pictures and their original copies. You can evidently see the gross difference between them and how they are thrown out of context.

This was a picture shared on Facebook.

 

I have found the original version which reads differently to the the one posted on the social networking site.

This picture was taken in 2010 after an earthquake in China and captures the efforts put in by the Tibetans to help rescue the victims. Now, Islamic political parties and some other elements are sharing this image as Muslim killing and their slaughter in Burma.

Another widely circulated  picture captioned “More then 1,000 people killed in Burma” is also fake.

575850 422729151098985 1400558517 n Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

The original, as you can see below, is taken in Thailand in the year 2004. This picture shows protesters that were tear-gassed outside the Tal Bai police station in Bangkok. This is roughly 1,409.9 km away from Burma! What is grossly negligent about these photos is the factual ignorance of the hate these misleading photos can culminate.

VOICE LIBERTY NATIONAL 093950 Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

Below, please find another image which was posted online, this time with an imprint of Jamaat-e-Islami on the top left . It reads ‘Terrorists of Budhism of Burma kills 500 Muslims’.

As you can guess, this is also a fabricated picture.

Terrorists of Budhism of Burma Kills 500 Muslims at the Beach today 753438 Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

In reality, this image belongs to a Human Rights violation incident by the Thai authorities against the Rohingya ethnic minority of Burma. These refugees were detained for a few weeks and then sent off drifting into the sea.

Here is another instance of such fallacy spreading across the social media sites regarding the massacre of Muslims in Burma.

fb image Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

This picture is extremely misleading considering that the original image was about the riots in Thailand that took place in 2003!

Now, take a look at the image below and observe how it is blown out of context.

fb image02 Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

Now, view the original.

fb image02 origi 700x1024 Muslims Killing in Burma and our Social Media / Islamic Parties

The original picture is not even remotely close to what the picture above states. In fact, a Tibetan protester had set himself on fire in protest prior to the arrival of Chinese president Hu Jintao and that too in Delhi.

I do not deny the killings of Muslims in Burma – not even for a minute.

I think it is horrific and I am sympathetic towards the immense loss being suffered by my Muslim brothers and sisters abroad.

What I am against is being lied to.

Imagine the amount of lies we are being fed through these pictures. How can one trust any image online if such drastic manipulation and editing is being done to cater to someone’s political or personal agenda?

Social media and networking sites, if used properly, can be an impressive tool in spreading awareness amongst its users, but it can be an equally dangerous median as well if misused.

These images are false and are only igniting hatred and prejudice in our youth.

We need to become more vigilant and aware of the credibility and authenticity of  pictures we browse through. It only takes one wrong image to push us over the edge towards extremism.

Who do you think is more misleading?

Whoever killed there either a Rohingy or a Rankine is a human being. I equally feel sad for all of them..

    media will never give u the whole truth, may it be electronic media or social media. It slowly and gradually changes public thinking according to its own objectives and this process is sooo slow that one never realizes it. Presently, it is working against Muslims throughout the world. You can only realize this change once u look back about 15 years time, e.g. in 1997, wat was your opinion about Muslims, Fundamentalism, Extremism, or any other concept of Islam like “Parda” etc. Keep on increasing the time span and find more and more change in your thinking.

    Stupid, stupid people. Burma killings are REAL. VERY REAL. screw the pictures, watch the damn videos for God’s sake. I agree that some pictures are false, especially the facebook ones. But the people who have posted these pictures are themselves misled about them. Now Mr. Faraz Ahmed, please research some more, you clearly haven’t done enough. If not that, then why don’t you try to visit Burma and see if you come back alive. Stop misleading people about the fact that Muslims are not being discriminated. THEY ARE. I don’t know what you modernists may be led to believe today’s world is about, but really nothing has changed. It’s the same old stories.The fight is still between the faithful and the faithless, just like the way it was between Firaun and Musa. Not much has changed since then, except technology and their ‘new ways’ of infiltration. They ruined the Torah, they ruined the Bible. Allah is protecting the Quran and they know they can’t ruin it. So now they are ruining your minds. Please wake up.Recommend

  • wendeth

    By being honest about the misleading it opens the door for the truth of the murders to be exposed. The killing of Muslims in Burma is nothing special to the Burmese govt. they have been acting out ethnic cleansing for generations against other people and it has gone pretty much ignored. If this article brings the conversation to the table about the atrocities happening in Burma then I say the point has been made. People shouldn’t get offended that someone is offended by lies being spread. It makes people look like they have to lie to get their story told (this happened with the Prophet Muhammad SWT drawings as well) The Muslim world is getting a bad rap from various angles, at least this article stands up and admits the lies and gets people talking about it.Recommend

  • Kanwal Cheema

    Let me tell you whats happening there – ‘Ethnic Cleansing’ is what they are doing, killing Muslims indiscriminately just because they are Muslims, burning people, throwing infants on swords and its all state sponsored. The president of Burma, Thein Sein has said that these people do not belong to Burma and the UN should take them as refugees – the UN has refused. Some tried to escape to Bangladesh to avert senseless killing but Bangladesh refused to take them in and sent them back. According to independent research, these people are the most persecuted on the planet and also the most destitute. They literally have nowhere to go.

    The reason nobody has pictures is because the media is not allowed in but the bodies are washing up on the shores of Bangladesh. If there were, they would also be of mass dead bodies and people burning and infants on swords e.t.c.I have posted some videos below from reputed news channels on the plight of these people.

    Why is it that the Muslim ummah has become so heartless? Wasn’t it said that Muslims are like one body, if the hand pains the whole body feels the pain. Why is it that we are more concerned if the pictures are fake or real than with the plight of these Muslims that no one wants to accept?
    I request you Mr. Faraz that instead of wasting your energies on finding if the photos are fake or real and undermining the plight of these people by posting about fake pictures, please raise your voice to the media, Muslim leaders, UN and super powers of the world which are all criminally quiet.

    The writer clearly says “I do not deny the killings of Muslims in Burma – not even for a minute..”

    What he is against is the fact that some people are misusing the issue to further their own agendas. Recommend

    Pictures might be fake but the real issue is the killing of Muslims… why he ignored that?? Even if we believe that all social media pictures are fake and only express tribune is true even then he should tell us that the news about the killing of Muslims is true and buddhist are slaughtering Muslims in thousands of numbers.. Don’t distort the fact…Recommend
