Ten monks belonging to the 969 movement have toured Arakan state and connected to local Rakhine leaders.
The men reached Buthidaung on November 22 and met with local Rakhine politicians known for their anti Rohingya purges in past years. In the afternoon they went to the Yong Cong area and held further meetings.
The next afternoon, they held similar meetings in Maungdaw town. The next day, they organised meetings of anti Muslim activists in the tin mile area.
Sources say the 969 activists were meeting to speed up ethnic cleasning policies directed to eject the Rohingya Muslims from Arakan. They say the advent of an NLD government will not change anti Muslim policies. But since these meetings, there are fears among the local populace that the 969 movement will push for a large scale riot before the government led by Aung San Suu Kyi takes power early next year.
