“Marg bar Āmrikā!” The chants are loud and clear every day in Tehran. Each soul, each individual, united in a voice against America. To the average American, their reasons for doing this seem incomprehensible; why would anyone hate the good ol’ USA? But to any moral person with even half of a functioning brain, the reason should be obvious: America is representative of everything that’s wrong with the world.
The History of the Term “Rohingya”:
The word “Rohingya” is an invented term, referring to Bengalis of the Chittagong region who entered the Rakhine region of Myanmar, mainly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The so-called progenitor of the word is the older word “rooinga”, which was initially a term to describe Bengali merchants in the Arakan region before the term was co-opted by Chittagong Bengalis. The term modern term, however, is inherently referring to a political group and not an ethnicity per se, as the modern world is a compound word stemming from the Chittagong name for the Arakan region “Rohan”, and a suffix meaning native “gya or ja”.
