Kyaw Swar Myint, an official from Tomorrow news journal, have spread anti-Muslim comment at least five times via his Facebook account wrongly citing as President Obama’s view.

After Paris terror attacks, he shared that news at least five times from his Facebook account with the comment of  “All Muslims are not terrorists. But all terrorists are Muslims – (Barack Obama – US President)”.

June Gio, a Facebook user, have asked US embassy through its official Facebook page to know whether his citation is real or not.

US Embassy replied that this anti-Muslim sentiment was not president’s view saying Kyaw Swar Myint had made a mistake.

In the past, Kyaw Swar Myint have written some news that are stoking communal tension and violence and even published hated-based news, articles and cartoon inciting racial and religion hatred among the communities.

For that reason, Sithu Aung Myint, a famous journalist, criticized Tomorrow journal with an article of ‘Tomorrow – A New page to spread hatred’ which published in Mizzima media.
