ARAKAN, MYANMAR (BURMA). As common Myanmar Arm Forces includes — Myanmar Army, Myanmar police, Para-military Force (Hluntin) and banned NASAKA was with them. For any operation they used to join with district administration, township and village tract authorities. But now, newly joined with them is “RAKHINE ARMY” especially to harass Rohingya people by a sudden raid wherever and whenever on the streets, farms, villages, homes and on business. The newly joined partners “RAKHINE ARMY” are not less than NASAKA in oppressing, Myanmar Army and other forces are behind them. It was a tactic that “Rakhine State Government called to save land and religion from the Muslim enemies, RAKHINE ARMY took opportunity joint with Myanmar Arm Forces to “conclude the pages of Muslims from history of Myanmar”.
In operation period Myanmar Arm Forces using Muslim woman and girls as “weapon of war” as “sex slaves”. Especially when the male head of family found absent at home, the Arm Forces behave indecently to the female. Sometimes, Rohingya beautiful women and girls were taken to police custody by false allegation and released after being gang raped. These kinds of persecutions used to take place especially in Mayu region including some parts in Rathedaung where the Rohingya Muslims were living since hundreds of years.
For about census, it shocked to world leaders and created two questions for those whoever matured in Rohingya matters. (1) Why the government only denied for term ROHINGYA? And (2) Why the local Muslim peoples didn’t agree for other terms instead of Rohingya? There are two juicy questions, too interesting but the answer is too easy according my point of views in positive ways.
According to the world approved histories, Rohingya Muslim’s existence in Arakan was together with Rakhine, lived and ruled together as a loyal sister communities in own land Arakan. Some misguided Buddhist (may be Burman policy makers) animated “the seed of hate” between two communities before 1942. Thus Rakhine massively killed hundred of thousands of Rohingya Muslims 1942, remained drove to west means Mayu region now called Maungdaw and Buthidaung. After independent (1948), Rohingya was also an ethnic minority of Burma (now Myanmar), but state owner majority Rakhine community kept in their reminder to drive out fellow Rohingya Muslims and to make newly Buddhist country as Arakan for only Raakhine Buddhist also to drive out Burmese government and to join Hill Track ofBangladesh. In the period of BSPP, too many Rakhine leaders including U Saw Hla from Maungdaw BSPP unit were arrested and jailed for mentioned separative movement. As usual Rakhines are pugnacious and revenge minders, wished to clean up the Rohingya Muslims at any cost. As long as Rakhines were trying to conclude the Rohingya from the history of Burma, BSPP dictator Ne Wing cancelled or eliminated the citizenship rights of Rohingyas by 1982 discriminatory law. The reason of denying Rohingya term in census is clear that the government didn’t want to grant their lost right as Rakhine objecting on it.
The name “census” is not for Rohingyas, “carrying on a join operation and opposite of UN and US instructions” indeed it is funding by one of UN organizations. Although UN recognized Rohingya as most persecuted minority of the world, Myanmar government will never accept the term Rohingya, because they wish to show their Burman bravery to the world authorities. For about the second question, they will never accept to the term Bangali instead of their owned identity Rohingya. The government may force and may kill all Rohingyas in Arakan, will not accept till the end of breathe because THEY WERE ROHINGYA, THEY ARE ROHINGYA, THEY WILL EVER BE ROHINGYA AND THEY PROUD TO BE ROHINGYA is their slogan every where and also UN accepted it as well.
“The main objective to ban Rohingya from census is to force Bengalize us, is not acceptable” said Rohingya elders and educated personals every where in Arakan and abroad. They have Arm forces to force and to beat as well, extremist behind them, Myanmar Army also with them to create and to fabricate several kinds of cases as going on everyday in Arakan, Myanmar.
“It is too necessary to protect and to save life of Rohingya Muslims after 12th of April, is going to start WATER FESTIVAL in Myanmar. All Buddhist will drink alcohol together, will continue five or six days every where all over Burma. Death rate may increase, armless Rohingya may kill every where, used to happen it each year even government couldn’t control them before, especially in Sittwe, state capital of Arakan. In Mayu region may kill by mixed operation with drunk terrorist in this festival”, said a Rohingya ex-teacher from Sittwe.
“UN, US and World powers are fully responsible to protect Rohingyas from coming mass planning and should solve it as soon as possible, otherwise may clean all Rohingya in a short period according their planning for next,” said a land lord 97 years old Rakhine to his friend Rohingya Muslim.
