Dear ethnic minorities and majorities
First,I like to condemn the act of raping and killing of women by
Army(Actually it should not called Burmese Army).And I would like to
show my sympathy to these victims as my mother ,as my sister , and as my
The country Myanmar is Born from the Union of Ethnic groups including
Myanmar. It is very clear to say that whatever places in Myanmar you
belong to, you are definitely a Myanmar (Burman).
Kachin,Kayar,Karen,Chin,Mon,Myanmar,Arakan,Shan.. All are Burmen as all
stroked for the Independence of Our country with strong dedications.
The word "Burmanization" make some controversial to all. From my
personal point of view, all ethnic groups have already been Burmanized
as soon as Burma regained her independence from British because of the
memorial,invaluable and heroic dedications of these nationalities. Karen
is burman, Kachin is burman Myanmar is burman Mon Shan....so on.
Somebody may say that Myanmars are of leading ethnic group who usually
look down on, take advantages over, and suppress other minorities. I
always deny to this. Do you know who is/was the culprit?????
IT IS DICTATORSHIP!!!!
The article said that Military launch Burmanization...Everybody knows
that Military contains other ethnic nationalities ( some of them
couldn't speak burmese, believe it these soldiers were common in Yangon
during 1988 Suppression). So,this word Burmanization is absolutely
non-sense whatever military name it. We could say it as "the most brutal
act of Military Dictators", BRUTALIZATION.
The Main Objective of my letter is to alert the all nationalities that
all including myanmar ethnic group want democracy and affections among
individuals of groups.
Imagine that Beautiful Burma plenty of natural resources with
inhabitants smiling at and helping each other towards the peaceful
With best wishes and regards
WHATEVER MILITARY AND DICTATOR DO AND DID IS NEVER SUPPORTED BY THE
