The Government of Myanmar invited journalists from the BBC as well as from other foreign and local outlets to hear an alleged 'other side of the story' during a government-guided tour of a village called Gawdu Thar Ya. (Linked here on FSTDT)
Hindu neighbours accused a persecuted minority, the Rohingya Muslims, of torching their own homes in a passive attempt to destroy the property of their neighbours. (And this passive aggressive act was followed by men and women, supposedly Muslim, waving machetes for a photo op...because why the fuck not?)
Since that is
incredibly hard totally fucking impossible to believe in itself, locals provided journalists with some ohhhh-so incriminating pictures:
We were given photographs catching [the Rohingya] in the act. They looked strange.
Men in white haji caps posed as they set light to the palm-thatch roof. Women wearing what appeared to be lacy tablecloths on their heads melodramatically waved swords and machetes. Later I found that one of the women was in fact the animated Hindu woman from the school, and I saw that one of the men had also been present in among the displaced Hindu.
If that fuckery weren't convincing enough that the Rohingya didn't do what their neighbours claim, the following should be:
As we walked in, we could see the roof of the madrassa has just been set alight. School texts with Arabic script had been thrown outside.
A madrassa would have contained a lot of Qur'anic literature. Maybe even copy-work by students. Considering most observant Muslims go so far as to wash their hands - wudu, I believe it's called - before opening a Qur'an, I don't believe for even a fraction of a second those villagers, with limited or no income to replace lost materials, would burn a madrassa. They'd not have burned copies of the Qur'an, nor left whatever survived strewn in a muddy street.
As for anything reported on the websites mentioned in this OP (such as JihadWatch), I take those claims with a truckload of salt.
ETA: So far as Aung San Suu Kyi is concerned, she may be in a political corner but that's not sufficient excuse for her silence. A splinter group of Rohingya, ARSA, did engage in violence against police, killing 12, but that doesn't reflect on the 270 000 Rohingya who were living in Myanmar before being driven out - or, if it does reflect on them, it may be for good reason that some had turned to militancy if the story of Gawdu Thar Ya turns out common. Being exiled to the Fourth World, and thereby left stateless, places 270 000 people in a position where they have no civil rights nor an international voice specifically defending their human rights. They're more vulnerable to genocide while in this condition than they would be in nearly any other.
