Two men chased by a Rakhine mob are yet to return home after more than a week.
Syed Hussain and Mujib Ullah from Mujai in Rathedaung sought shelter in Anak Parang after being chased by Rakhine villagers in the neighbourhood as they ventured to ‘foreign territory’ on orders of the military.
On August 4, the two men were fishing by the river when a group of military personal ordered them to drive them to Wudong on their boat.
As they were on their way to Wudong, the two fishermen nervously stated that since they were in Rakhine and Natala territory it would be risky for them to return home. The military men gave them their phone number and assured them steps would be taken if Rakhines or other security personal bothered them in the least.
As they were coming back, a group of Rakhines saw them and chased them in another boat. Syed and Mujib managed to escape and entered the nearby Rohingya village of Anak Parang where they sought shelter.
After entering Anak Parang, the Rohingyas called the military passengers. Contrary to earlier promises, they replied nothing could be done in this regard.
As the Rakhine mob has threatened to kill them if they set foot outside the village, the Rohingyas are yet to return to Mujai.
