Rohingya is back in the news,thanks to the Anonymous who exposed the state of fear in which the minority community is living.They have been identified as some of the most persecuted minority community in the world.The local community always targets the people from Rohingya community.The Independent reported and questioned the World community unresponsiveness to the heinous acts carried out by the junta and local agitators.
The same was asked by Anonymous who started the OpRohingya on 23rd March.
“While the United States claims to defend human rights, their record clearly reflects a government that will only intercede when their business interests are threatened. While politicians occasionally pay lip service to the horrific conditions in Myanmar no action is ever taken. The only people neglecting the situation in Myanmar worse than the U.S. are the press who consistently ignored these atrocities or reported them as ‘ethnic clashes’. Since they have failed to document these crimes.”
Before the attack,twitter storm was also launched tweeting large number of tweets with #OpRohingyaNOW.
So to bring the world attention,Anonymous hacked government websites using the same DDoS technique which was used to hack into Israeli websites.The same technique was used to bring down the websites and defaced them. Many websites with .gov.mm websites are down.Some of the affected websites are President Office ,Ministry of Information,Myanmar Education of the 14 websites which went down after the attack.
