Burmese Christian Woman Raped, Stripped Naked, Tied To A Cross

Posted by Job on April 20, 2007

A new report documenting the use of rape against ethnic women in Burma was launched this week, as the country’s regime marked “Armed Forces Day”.

Unsafe State: State-sanctioned sexual violence against Chin women in Burma, published by the Women’s League of Chinland, documents 38 cases of sexual violence committed with impunity by the Burma Army throughout Chin State – located in western Burma near the border with India. Almost half the cases documented were gang rapes, and at least a third were committed by officers. Sexual violence is typically accompanied by extreme brutality, including severe torture and murder. One woman was stripped naked and tied to a cross, in “a savage act of mockery against her Christian beliefs”, the report claims.

“These horrors are being sanctioned by the state in Burma,” said Cheery Zahau, a spokesperson for the Women’s League of Chinland. “How can the civilised world accept this junta among their ranks? And how can countries like India and China be arming these rapists?” The Burma Army has quadrupled its military presence in Chin State in recent years, and the militarisation is expected to increase further if plans go ahead to export natural gas from the Burmese coast by pipeline through Chin State to India. Stuart Windsor, Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) National Director, said: “The Chin people are among the most forgotten people in the world, and their suffering is horrendous. The use of rape, accompanied by religious persecution and forced labour, should not be tolerated. It is time for the international community to act.”

    Do not let Burmese fascist military junta troops invade the land of ethnic brothers and sisters. The junta is in trouble preparing for illegal election. They could not persuade the ethnic armies to surrender to fascist army. We got Pang long agreement historically which guarantee self rule of home lands. Crime against humanity alone disqualify the junta to rule the country or even think about invading the mother lands. Seek unity among the ethnic armies to resist the fascist invasion. Start recruiting the soldiers and weapons and make ready for defending the land from invasion.
