Rohingyas in Pauktaw fear that the government and Buddhist nationalists have organised groups of Rakhine thugs to attack Rohingya fishermen and rob their assets. This is part of a detailed plan to detailed operation to deprive the Rohingyas of one of their last source of livelihoods.
The fears have resurfaced following attacks of Rohingya fishermen by Rakhine miscreants in the area on Wednesday.
Rohingyas face decreasing livelihood options as they prevented from leaving their designated zones by authorities. They have to bribe authorities for fishing in the big rivers, but latest attacks are also making that option uncertain.
