This rumour is confirmed false and is of low priority – here's why:
Tomorrow Journal, a local journal, published that about 3,500 members of IS/ISIS are already inside
Burma. The journal published the information without any evidence, and it says that the information is
based on “The Muslim World Press”. The news was published on 16th June 2015, volume 2, issue
number 15 and page number 6. The journal says, ”About 3500 members of IS have already been
established inside Burma, since 2013, to wage jihad against the Buddhists.

According to the investigation, there is no entity called “The Muslim World
Press”. In fact, the journal copied the information from an anti-Muslim website
https://themuslimissue.wordpress.com , and published it. The aim of the publication of such information
raised a very serious ethical question against the journal, because the information could create a huge
distrust between the communities where the situation is already very tense.

In an interview with a Japanese media organization, Senior General Min Aung Hlaine said that there is
no threat from IS/ISIS in Burma. 'Many Muslims are living in Burma. We cannot guarantee that the propaganda would not reach here as
well. We also received the information. So far there is no danger or any threat that exists. However, we
are always monitoring', said Senior General Min Aung Hlaine.
