PETALING JAYA: The recent outbreak of violence involving Myanmar nationals here in Malaysia is being distorted and used to instigate the population back in Myanmar.
Blogs and social media platforms such as Facebook are being used to create the false impression that Myanmar nationals are being persecuted in Malaysia.
“They want to poison the minds of the people back home,” claimed a Myanmar national who has lived in Malaysia for more than a decade.
Most of the blogs and Facebook postings are in Burmese although theStar Online came across one which has posts in English athlaoo1980.blogspot.com.
