Burma Times – Maung Daw 07 April 2014
The security forces and extremist Rakhine joined together in order to persecute the Rohingya in different remote areas. A great number of security forces came to the Htalia village, Maung Daw Township, northern Rakhine state, Burma and the intention of their reconnaissance is to harass the Rohingya that arbitrary arrested three Rohingya men by chiding with fault cases that the above three Rohingyas involved in smuggling.
One of the above arrestee, Arafat`s wife has been taken away by the security forces today morning then, abusively insulted and beaten up by the security forces. Ultimately, the security forces demanded the large amount of cash to get rid from the police station. Unfortunately, she was unable to fulfill their high demand. Now, she is on an oppressive way stated by her children.
Her elder son is also stated to some leaders of the Rohingya that the security forces and extremist Rakhine are trying to accuse the Rohingya for the reason of nothing at any time in everywhere because the term of “Bengali” for self-identification in census enumeration is denying by us. The leaders of Rohingya are earnestly requesting to the International Communities, United Nation, and United State of America, European Union and Organization of Islamic Cooperation to solve the Rohingya issues as to recognize us as a citizen of Burma with writing the term of Rohingya ethnically in census list.
