A viral video on Twitter shows a naked child, stated to be of the Burma Rohingya Muslim minority group, being repeatedly tasered by an alleged Buddhist Burmese soldier. Burma is also known as Myanmar. The video was shared on Twitter this afternoon by an “Islamic reminders” account holder stated to be located in London.

None of this can be verified.

However, the graphic video does show a young child being tasered.

Rohingya Muslims are Indo-Aryan peoples from the Rakhine State, Myanmar and make up about 1.3 million of the of the total 50 million Burmese population. According to al-Jazeera, “They are not regarded as one of the country’s 135 official ethnic groups and are denied citizenship under Myanmar’s 1982 Citizenship Law, which effectively renders them stateless.”

The BBC adds, “The government argues they are from neighbouring Bangladesh not Myanmar, and that the Rohingya identity has been invented by migrants to gain citizenship.” The Rohingya speak a Bengali dialect.

The state religion of Myanmar is Theravada Buddhism, while the Rohingya people practice Sunni Islam.

In 2012, the Rohingya people rioted against the ethnic Rakhine Buddhists. Burma President Thein Sein later admitted that “a wave of communal violence pitting [Rakhine] Buddhists against Muslims” occurred in Rakhine, reports The Guardian.

In 2015, Rohingya migrants fleeing Myanmar made the news as refugees journeyed to Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand by rickety boats.

According to researchers from the International State Crime Initiative at Queen Mary University of London, “Persecution of the Rohingya minority in Myanmar has been orchestrated by the government, state-level officials and Buddhist monks, according to the findings of an 18-month investigation into state crime.”

That video was faked and it was not even Rohingya child. The Rohingya they called was dark skin same as Bangladeshi. Even Daily Mail was deleted and apology for published fake Video on its web page. I don’t understand why these peoples post fake and fabricated videos and pictures. Peoples always find out fake or true sooner or later. I don’t pity on such as posting fake video and pictures.
