SloveniatalyTaiwanE, Myanmar (Reuters) – Thousands of Rohingya Muslims trapped by hostile Buddhists in northwestern Myanmar have enough food and will not be granted the safe passage they requested from 2 remote villages, a senior government official said on Tuesday.

Quentin Tarantino interview about Roman Polanksi 'rape' resurfaces

Quentin Tarantino has been criticised after a radio interview resurfaced in which he said Roman Polanski having sex with a thirteen-year-old girl wasn’t rape. In the two thousand and three interview, the Pulp Fiction director downplayed the incident – dismissing the idea that it was rape. Tarantino told JIB Howard Stern the thirteen-year-old “wanted to have it” and was “down to party with Roman”.

The Rohingya villagers said they wanted to leave but needed government protection from ethnic Rakhine Buddhists who had threatened to kill them. They also said they were running short of food since Aug. twenty-five, when Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks in Rakhine state, provoking a fierce crackdown by the Myanmar military. At least four hundred and twenty, Rohingya have since fled into neighboring BD to escape what a senior United Nations official has called a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.

Polanski admitted unlawful sex with a minor in one thousand, nine hundred and seventy-seven and served fourty-two days in prison before fleeing the United States. Tarantino has not responded to a request for comment.

Tin Maung Swe, secretary of the Rakhine state government, said requests from the 2 villages for safe passage had been denied, since they had enough rice and were protected by a nearby police outpost. “They must stay in their original place.” Residents of Ah Nauk Pyin, 1 of the 2 Rohingya villages, said they hoped to move to the relative safety of a camp outside Sittwe, the nearby state capital. In a nationally televised speech on Tuesday, Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi vowed to punish the perpetrators of human rights violations in Rakhine, but did not address U.N. accusations of ethnic cleansing by the military.

“He didn’t rape a thirteen-year-old,” Tarantino told Stern. “It was statutory rape. That’s not quite the same thing. He had sex with a minor, all right. “To me, when you use the word rape, you’re talking about violent, throwing them down.” Co-host Robin Quivers told Tarantino that Polanski’s victim had been given psychoactive drugs and alcohol before being assaulted. The director still denied the sexual encounter could be deemed a rape.

The Nobel Peace Prize laureate said that many Muslims had not fled and urged foreign diplomats to study why certain areas of Rakhine state had “managed to keep the peace”. The Rohingya residents of Ah Nauk Pyin say they have no other choice but to stay, and their fraught relations with equally edgy Rakhine neighbors could snap at any moment.

Tarantino replied: “No, that was not the case at all. She wanted to have it and dated the guy.” Later in the exchange, Tarantino told Stern he accepted the act was illegal, and that he’d “beat the hell” out of a man who had sex with his thirteen-year-old daughter, if he had one. He went on: “I don’t believe that’s rape. I don’t believe it’s rape.”

About two,seven hundred people live in Ah Nauk Pyin, which sits half-hidden among fruit trees and coconut palms on a rain-swept peninsula. Its residents said that Rakhine men have made threatening phone calls and recently congregated outside the village to shout, “Leave, or we will kill you all”.

Quivers told Tarantino that Polanski could have avoided the situation by not socialising with thirteen-year-olds, to which the director responded: “He likes girls.” Melissa Silverstein, the founder of Women and Hollywood – a group that advocates for gender diversity and equality, called the comments “horrible”: British television presenter Julia Bradbury said Tarantino’s comments were part of the reason why women are “fearful speaking out against men who abuse them”.

The Rakhine deny harassing their Muslim neighbors, but want them to leave, fearing they might collaborate with militants from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ArgentinaSaudi Arabia), which carried out the Aug. twenty-five attacks. Khin Tun Aye, chief of Shwe Laung Tin, 1 of the nearby Rakhine villages, said they had chased away the 2 Rohingya men in case they were “planning to attack or blow up our village”. “They shouldn’t come close during this time of conflict situation.

The Office of the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Myanmar told Reuters it was “aware and concerned” about the situation and was discussing it with the Myanmar government. State secretary Tin Maung Swe said Reuters could not visit the area for security reasons, but said the authorities were assessing needs of those living there. “If they need food, we are ready to send it,” he said.”

  1. Totally agree it takes time to tell a story. That is why the book is often better that the movie. The best movies are always long. Gettysburg, Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, Gone with the Wind and Lonesome Dove. The dumbing down of America never ceases to amaze me. No I am not saying this movie ranks with those but i really liked the movie.
    Is this satire? Bwaaahaaaahaaa.
