Thuriya


Thuriya
   (The Sun)
   One of the most important Burmese (Myanmar) language newspapers during the British colonial period, established by U Ba Pe in 1911. In 1935, it was purchased by U Saw, who used it to promote his own political agenda. Thuriya's inflammatory articles in 1938 played a major role in sparking rioting against Indians and Muslims in Rangoon (Yangon), during which almost 200 people were killed.
   See also Anti-Indian Riots.
