refugee crisis


In my opinion Myanmar people should go and fight for themselves to get food, drink or money because they are a poor country. Buddhists mostly live in Myanmar but the Islam relgioun took over then they changed burma to myanmar.

    Hi steady_camel, welcome to the BNC Hub! One of our BNC skills is scepticism. We encourage BNC members to challenge what they hear. Check out our skills here:

    I'm going to challenge a few things you have said using facts to support what I say.

    1. You say that Islam changed the name of Burma to Myanmar. This is not correct. Burma was the English name for the country from back when it was under colonial control. It was the military in Myanmar that changed the name in 1989.
    2. You say that 'the Islam religion took over'. This is not correct. Muslim make up less than 5% of the population in Myanmar. The vast majority of people are Buddhist.

    We suggest researching any facts or claims you make from several different places help make sure we have all the facts! Does knowing this information affect how you think about the crisis?
