Par Al-Kanz

The tenth edition of the french TV show Pekin Express was shot in Burma, while Burma is shooting muslims. M6, the producing channel, must cancel the broadcast.

For celebrating its ten years of existence, the TV show Pékin Express, broadcast on the french TV channel M6, chose to take the participants on an adventure in… Burma wherein a genocide of muslims has been committed for almost two years, be the victims Burmese or stateless, as for the Rohingyas, who saw their their citizenship revoked in 1982 by the ruling junta.

Burma, it’s this country where « military has continued to use rape as a weapon of war« , as recalled in early 2014 the BBC website.

Burma, it’s this country where « crimes against humanity and ethnic cleansing » has been practiced since one and a half years, as reported by the Human Rights Watch NGO in April 2013.

The UNO, which declared several months ago that the Rohingyas constitutes the most persecuted ethnic group in the world, raised last week the concern about the mistreatments of this ethnic minority.

Here is the daily reality of the muslim Burmese and Rohingyas:

Now here is the reality that M6 is selling to its viewers:

It’s as lovely as Kim Jong-Il and Kim Jong-Un brought together.

Pictures from unknown worlds. So much so that the M6 channel would ignore that a genocide is happening; as for Jérémy Guyot, Media Relations Director at M6, who is « touting » the viewers on twitter and for Morgane DuPont, the M6 Communications Officer who is always tweeting nice pictures of buddhist children but cautiously avoids the following Time cover depicting the « Hitler of Burma », or for the Stéphane Rotenberg who went on a family trip to Burma, with his daughter.

M6, well served by Morgane DuPont, prefers the pictures that would make its views dream and the advertisers come. Talking about Hiter, albeit dressed in ocher robe and having a smooth skul,l is not as glamourous, admittedly.

Coming back to the petition, it is meeting a resounding success. While all the media is celebrating the TV show 10 years of existence, not even uttering a word about the aberration of making a show in the middle of an ethnic cleansing, the social media mobilization managed to gather a large chunk of people who do not relate to this unethical type of work.

Click on the following link in order to reach the petition: We ask for the cancellation of the 10th edition of Pékin Express, held in Burma.

We have to carry on the mobilization. M6 might not cancel its 10th edition, despite this gigantic mistake. Never mind. We will have, altogether, all along this 10th edition of Pékin Express the chance to tell the whole world that in France, a TV show plays and entertains the viewers near the warm dead bodies of women, children and old men and women, solely assassinated because of the their ethnic origins. The world must know, the world will know in shaa-Llah. We owe it to Burma’s oppressed and elsewhere’s.

    Let’s kickout racism, no double standard! Moshleem of Rohingya should be given the freedom.
