Maungdaw, Arakan State: Thousands of Rakhine mobs led by Rakhine ruling political party – Rakhine Nationalities Development Party-(RNDP) had restarted mass attacking, burning and destruction of Muslims villages and houses, in Minbya, Mrauk Oo, Kyaukpru, Pauktaw, Ratheydaung, Myebone, and Kyauktaw Townships since October 21, 2012, according to joint statement of 11 national and international Rohingya organizations.

“This was the second time of genocide and persecutions of Muslims in Arakan in 2012 by the RNDP led Rakhine people with the direct help and strong involvement of the Burmese Government security forces of President Thein Sein from both central and Rakhine State Government.”

Thousands of Rakhine mobs surrounding the Kyauk Nimaw village of Manaung Township, Arakan State, for torching the houses and killing the Rohinya villagers even though the international pressure to the Burmese government, regarding the violence in Arakan State today morning at about 10:00 am, according to villagers from the locality.

“The Rakhine mobs tried early morning at about 5:00am to attack and set on fire the village – Kyauk Nimaw -, failed as the army stayed between two communities to protect the village. The Rakhines again gather at Thayoung Byine and Magyi Gone Rakhine village to attack the village at 10:00am where the army shot to the sky for not advancing and killed 5 Rakhines while the Rakhines forced them to fire on them.”

“More than 10,000 Rakhines gather near the Kyauk Nimaw village from other village which was supported by Taungup businessman U KyaukTaung for Rakhines travel cost to joint.”

“In Kyauk Nimaw, there are around 6,000 people – Male, female and children – are not able to protect their lives and no foods security for them if they are surrounded like this more.”

“Please, inform to the international community to save us and need your help to protect our village,” said a woman from Kyauk Nimaw.

The Rakhine mob is marching to the  Rohingya villages with four lines such as— children are in the front line, then the women are on the second line, on the third line are Rakhine men and the last line are Buddhist monks, according to a reliable source.

But the security forces—-police and army are firing bullets into air to disperse the mob. However, we do not now the situation till writing the report.

Similarly, the Rakhine monks sent letters to Rohingya village- Sentaymaw village under PauktawTownship- as threaten, to leave the village which they ( Rakhines) want to touch the village to show less killing  to the international community who are protesting the killing of Rohingya community in Arakan, said a villager from Pauktaw.

“Beginning from the month of October 21, 2012, at least fourteen villages were burnt down and thousands of people killed. Hundreds of Muslim girls and women were raped by the Burmese security forces and Rakhine extremists during attacking the Muslims in those townships. The Burmese Government officials and Security forces did nothing to prevent and stop these mass killings and attacks. President Thein Sein led Burmese Government had claimed that Arakan State is in normal situation but, in reality the situation has become more worsened day after day. These atrocities and mass killings were being committed under the open eyes of the Burmese security forces involving the Police, Lun Htein, and Army. Available reports confirmed that Buddhist Rakhine people led by RNDP President Dr. Aye Maung and Rakhine State Prime Minister Hla Maung Tin are trying to spread this violence across the whole Muslims residing areas of all Townships in Arakan,” the joint press release of 11 Rohingya Organizations stated on recent situation of Arakan state Muslims.

We, the organizations are- Odhikar, Bangladesh; Human Security Alliance, Thailand and Asian Muslim Action Network, Thailand- deeply concerned at the recent reports in the international media that scores of Rohingyas were killed in the fresh outbreak of violence in the northern Arakan state. We are also alarmed by the reports that hundreds of Rohinyga homes were burnt by a vengeful Rakhine community, that in turn has led to the displacement of thousands of people. This is in addition to the 75,000 people who are still languishing in overcrowded camps set up by the Myanmar authorities with very little basic amenities. Observers have noted that the recent outbreak of violence against the Rohinygas is in line with the long-term plan of the  Rakhine community to eliminate Rohingyas from all the townships where they are a minority. We, the three organizations notes that the local Burmese authorities in connivance with the central government is pursuing a policy of apartheid under which tens of thousands of Rohinygas are housed in camps beyond the city limits under barbed wire fencing with armed guards placed at the entrances, according to press release “International support needed to protect Rohingyas from persecution.”
