Burma Times Special Report 18 January 2015
It is reported that the chairmen of all village tracts from western Burma in particular the most populous area of Rohingya—Buthidaung and Maungdaw— called the chiefs of 100 houses [according to Burmese literature : Ya Een Hmu] and chiefs of 10 houses[ according to Burmese literature: Sey Een Hmu] were ordered to sign in some white papers designed such as that “we the Muslims of Rakhine state are signing here to apply for citizenship as Bengali.”
Afterwards, they were strongly ordered to persuade local people to willingly accept the government designed ethnic al term for them as Bengali in lieu of Rohingya.
Moreover, the village tract authorities said the above mentioned two kinds of chiefs to warn people that you people will be imprisoned or be forced to flee this country if you don’t accept the Bengalization policy of government because this is a territorial order from higher authorities.
Accordingly, the Rohingya community feels horror as the Rakhine Action Plan which was drafted specifically based on Bengalization will be implemented at all costs because the political trick of the ruling government led by President Thein Sein was burst after the information of systematic persecution and discrimination faced by Rohingya community was circulated across the world.
