There are fears that the government is looking for ways to stop rations for the IDPs in Anak Porang and Mujai of Rathedaung township.
The fears come as Lawaka and police officials made these threats to some Rohingya elders.
The residents of the IDP camps are strictly forbidden from moving outside the boundary. As a result, they have no access to income and food. This blockade is strictly enforced in these two village tracts.
International rights groups have said the IDP camps have some of the worst living conditions in the world. Under these circumstances, there are concerns that Rohingyas will starve to death if the government manages to stop the rations.
In 2012, violence started quite belatedly in Anak Porang and Mujai, but in the final days of the conflict, it was one of the worst theatres. The Rohingya Muslims in these village tracts also put up a ferocious resistance that allowed many children to escape the marauding Buddhist mobs. But when the mobs moved in with the backing of security forces, the punishment for the resistance was merciless and the two villages were literally erased and many inhabitants slaughtered.
But even now, the Rakhines and the Natala have not forgotten the resistance put up by the Muslim defenders and they want to completely starve out the Rohingyas, according to locals.
