Violence continues in Arakan state: "UN's interventi​on is seemingly not effective"

By NDPHR(exile),

"UN's intervention is seemingly not effective"

The government authorities do not installed Law and Order for Rakhine people who are continuously doing crimes. A few Rakhines those arrested from Sittwe, Kyauktaw and Maungdaw were also released after days. Beside, police authority are arresting Rohingya elders and youths from every village of Sittwe, Maungdaw, Rathedaung and Kyauktaw townships and framing them with false charges.

UN's intervention is seemingly not effective therefore Rohingya people are continued to face tyrant attacks of Rakhines and arbitrary abuses of local authorities. While there is ongoing heavy raining and flooding, it is more than two weeks now they are confined by military guards without supply of food and medicine.
A relief blog- OCHA's report states that the WFP has provided 725 metric tons of food commodities (rice, pulses, oil and salt) to over 92,000 affected people in five townships, Sittwe, Pauktaw, Maungdaw, Rahtedaung and Buthidaung. The government report also shows that it has received donation nearly 200 millions Kyat for Arakan crisis.

However, all aid supplies are reached to government designated relief centres where authority places perpetrator Rakhine family members only. Despite the INGOs have well experiences about the nature of government authorities, they have not yet ensured aid delivery for homeless victims of Rohinngya.
Similar complaints received for the past Cyclone Giri in Oct 2010 that hit along the coastal areas of Kyaukfru, Myebon, Myinbya, Pauktaw townships where fishing villages were mostly affected. Muslim victims from fishing villages were barred from receiving aid and assistance by local in-charge staffs who monitored distribution aid.

Rakhine people who involved directly in recent riot of Sittwe

We had escalated a number Rakhine people who involved directly in recent riot of Sittwe. Again these people are warmly received gratitude in a Face Book page of a Rakhine.
They are; RNDP psd Dr Aye Maung, Tat Thu Aung- Kuan Yat Society, chairman U Shwe Tun Aung- the Merchant Association of Arakan, Rakhine Rakhita Association, Sayadaw U Pinya Zya Ra.

The source confirms that U Maung Tan Hlaing is who began the riot in Sittwe and now taking refuge in Rwa U monastry of Min Gan village.

Update: Violence continues in Arakan state 

Akyab/Sittwe city, 29 June, Friday
There are total 172 Rohingyans involving under age detained in military camp. The source confirmed all of them were brought from Rathedaung township after tortured in the hands of Rakhines from Ku Taung.

28 June, Thursday4 homeless Rohingyans of Sangadaung village (near Sugar Mill) were died from starvation and lack of shelter. The Rohingya own lands in this village were also replaced by Rakhine people themselves.

Rohingya people own shops in the market of Kyauktaw were seized by municipal authority. The valuable things were taken away by Rakhines and proudly saying that all resources and belongings in the territory of Rakhine state are their own.

Two homeless villagers from Khaungdok Alay Kyuan (Barua Fara) were died in the flood of Kaladan River. One of them is identified as a brother of Mv.Habi who live in Denmark.

Update Arakan and Rakhine RNDP's open letter

By NDPHR (exile),
Sittwe townshipYesterday morning on 28 June, 5 Rohingya women from Aungmingala quarter who went to the market of Sittwe to buy foods after starved for two weeks, were brutally beaten by a group of Rakhine people and handed over to No(1) Police station by giving false statement. After police saw they were seriously injured, all five women were sent to hospital. One of them, sister of Soe Raza was died a hour later and the condition of the rest are still unknown.
It is also confirmed that the hospital staffs who are also Rakhines did treat them roughly because of muslim.

We are getting reports from Sittwe that the relief aids are delivering to Rakhine alone and homeless Rohingya people still face stavation and lack of medicine. Some Rohingyans were loaded to trucks and shifting to unknown locations. the source also confirmed that some water tanks in Rohingya areas were found poisoned.

Rambre Township29 June: A villager, Mr Hashim living in Australia confirmed the villagers are not yet returned to thier houses since some of their 21 houses in Tan Rwa village were burnt down and they dispersed into hiding from 10 June.
This is a translation of-
"Rakhine National Democratic Party-RNDP's declaration after conflict relating to relocation" 04/2012, on 26 June 2012.

1) The riot occurred from 8 June causes to face intensive difficulty for national affairs.
2) This difficulties are in need to solve by the gov and corporately with public.
3) While Bengali immigrants had been settled into Rakhine state in continuity periods through various ways,  present population of Bengali causes threat for the whole Rakhine people and other ethnic people based on current occasion.
4) The historic remark of riot between Myanmar national and Bengali in 1942 later, there were several riots recurred in Rakhine state. We get known that this occasion in 2012 is much affected Rakhine people and the whole Myanmar economy rather than occasions in 1988, 1996, 2000.
5) Illegally settled Bengali are creating new name 'Rohingya' with fabricating history that propaganda of terrorising, are damaging the Rakhine people and national sovereignty. Our party view that it is require to solve by taking out of complete solution for Rakhine people' safety and security for lives and property.

To solve like it, our party announce the following declaration;

3) All union of ethnic people to corporate to prevent the Bengali people' trespassing and entering in various ways into the whole Myanmar including Rakhine state.
4) To transferred to relocate the non-Myanmar national Bengali to the third countries, by getting negotiation from UN and international.


Aung San Suu Kyi and the Rule of Law

Source from Asia Sentinel, 26 June 2012
What if the Rohingya problem is 'legally produced'?
Aung San Suu Kyi's 17-day European trip, which started on 13 June, could be called the "Rule of Law Tour." She has been promoting the concept of the rule of law as a problem-solving tool in every single talk and press conference in Europe.
Aung San Suu Kyi doesn't know what to do about them either  
Aung San Suu Kyi doesn't know what to do about them either
Yet her account runs the risk of being an empty promise if she continues to leave the content of the laws unchallenged.

Rule of law particularly is Aung San Suu Kyi's default answer to the questions regarding the oppressed Rohingya minority group from western Burma who have been denied citizenship by the state, and are unwanted and openly demonized by the public at large.

The tremendous public opposition against the Rohingyas, most significantly reflected during the conflict in Arakan state early this month, demonstrates that any political leader supporting them can be accused of being a traitor.

This puts Aung San Suu Kyi in a risky position. On the one hand, any implicit or explicit support for the Rohingya is likely to entail a backlash from her Burmese supporters who are in a state of political hangover regarding the Arakan conflict. The conflict has resulted in numerous deaths and displaced many hundreds from both ethnic Rakhine and Rohingya sides. Her supporters are also in a state of denial for equal rights and citizenship to ethnic Rohingyas.

Conversely, saying anything to comfort her supporters' anxiety regarding the loss of sovereignty to the Rohingyas endangers her international reputation as an icon of freedom and democracy. In short, expressing a sentiment beyond the reassurance of rule of law's significance is her political suicide.

Aung San Suu Kyi, of course, is smart enough to avoid this dilemma by sticking to the ideals of rule of law. However, her strategy appears to be problematic because she only takes the laws for granted and implies that rule of law means implementing the laws properly.

For instance, when a participant at the Oslo Forum asked whether or not Rohingyas are citizens of Burma, she responded that, "We are not certain exactly what the requirements of citizenship law are…, If we were very clear as to who are the citizens of the country under the citizenship law and who qualify, then there wouldn't be this problem… We have to have rule of law, and we have to know what the law is. We have to make sure that it is properly implemented".

However, implementing the laws alone is not adequate. Unjust laws and their contents need to be challenged so that the laws and their 'proper implementation ensures justice, which Aung San Suu Kyi has not seriously addressed so far.

The Rohingya case provides a very clear example why the law itself can be a source of problems. Statelessness, ill treatment, and discrimination against the Rohingyas are not simply the results of a lack of the rule of law. Quite contrary, they are legally produced. In particular, they are the results of the 1982 Citizenship Act that effectively deprived the Rohingyas of citizenship status.

Whether one agrees with the controversial ethnic label 'Rohingya' or not, this Muslim population has lived in the Burma-Bangladesh borderland, known today as Arakan state on the Burma side, for centuries. As in every other borderland, the inhabitants move about in the territory. They are connected by people on both sides of the border through cross-border networks of family ties, labor processes, trade relations, etc., just like ethnic Rakhines in Arakan state.

Throughout the dictator Ne Win era, deadly military operations and arbitrary categorizations of 'national races' undermined the Rohingyas' historical existence in that borderland. By the late 1970s and early 1980s, they lost their indigenous status to that very specific borderland.

When the 1982 Citizenship Act was introduced, they were effectively disqualified for citizenship since the new act recognizes only the decedents of the so-called national races who had lived in the state territory prior to 1824. Rendered a non-indigenous or non-national race unlike other groups such as the Karan, Kachin, Shan etc., the Muslim population from that borderland, who called themselves Rohingyas, 'became' non-nationals and non-citizens, and worse, illegal immigrants.

Today's ill treatment and discrimination against Rohingyas, as well as the popular mis-perception about their status as 'illegal' are all predicated on the 1982 Citizenship Act. As such, their statelessness and illegal status are not natural and automatic, but a man-made phenomenon, facilitated and fortified by the 1982 act.

To borrow a phrase from Professor Nicholas de Genova from Columbia University, the Rohingyas' situation should be understood as the legal production of Rohingya illegality. It is the law that places this Muslim population outside the national citizenship regime; it is the law that institutionalizes their exclusion and renders them 'illegal.' As such, talking about the rule of law without being serious about the need to challenge unjust laws and their contents will only perpetuate the problems. Aung San Suu Kyi's choice not to go further into challenging the laws might be her strategic choice for now, but she will have to address it sooner or later.

Update (26-27 June): Ongoing Situation in Arakan

By NDPHR(exile)

Despite the government says that the situation has been under controlled, there are more harassment, sexual abuses, arbitrary arrest, looting, extortion, brutal abuses are going on, particularly in northern Arakan.

According to reliable sources attained by NDPHR(exile), we would like to double confirm that recent and ongoing violence in Arakan is a well planned pogrom of ethnic cleansing by directly involvement of current Rakhine political party-RNDP’s president Dr Aye Maung, Tak Thu Aung of Kuan Yat Rakhine National Society, chairman U Shwe Tun Aung of the Merchant Association of Arakan, Rakhine Rakhita Association, (monk) Sayadaw U Pinya Zya Ra who entered from Bangladesh and created similar riot in Sittwe during early 2001 and along side with former Gen.Khine Nyunt, U Khin Shwe, U Khin Yin.

There were a large number of Rakhine authority personally involved in recent violences. But we able to identify a few are;
Police officer Aung Kyaw Khant and Paramilitary officer Than Htin from Maungdaw township;
Chairman U Tan Win of Aungmingala village, RNDP member Balagyi and a former weight player Ko Thein Shwe from Sittwe township; and
Chief inspector U Tin Oo from Rathedaung township.

The hypocrisy of Burma’s pro-democracy movement

Source from Asian Corresponde, 27 June 2012

Much has been made of the recent sectarian unrest in western Burma and its ramifications for the country’s fragile reform process. It’s important to note that the violence and subsequent outpouring of anti-Rohingya anger is not a niche issue confined to a specific locale – instead it should be viewed as something more pervasive among many Burman and Arakanese, both inside Burma and abroad, that threatens to contaminate the wider discourse on how to move the country forward.

Among the key catalysts of anti-Rohingya sentiment are, surprisingly, prominent members of Burma’s pro-democracy movement. The hypocrisy of their attempts to vilify an entire ethnic group – labelling them variously as “terrorists”, “illegal immigrants”, “not worthy of citizenship”, and so on – appears lost on them.
Tin Maung Htoo, director of Canadian Friends of Burma (CFOB), was forced by the organisation’s Board to retract a statement in early June in which he said the Rohingya were the remnants of a Mujahideen movement in western Burma that had tried to gain citizenship after their “Jihad” failed (like all the country’s ethnic minorities, there is no fixed date for their arrival, though one study done of dialects in Arakan State back in 1799 references “Rooinga”).

That, and other inflammatory comments posted on the internet, are merely the tip of the iceberg for many of Burma’s “democrats”, whose rhetoric implicitly encourages the ongoing persecution of the Rohingya. Burma Democratic Concern (BDC), based in the UK, states on its website that a special battalion of Burmese troops should be deployed to northern Arakan state “to protect the lives of the minority Buddhist Burmese Araknese who are living in the middle of barbaric so-called Rohingya Bengali Muslims”, whom it claims have massacred “tens of thousands of Burmese Buddhist Arakanese in the past”.

The founders of BDC and CFOB were themselves forced into exile after the Burmese military was given free rein to put down the 1988 student uprising in the name of “protecting the nation”. The fact that these same people have also felt most painfully the scourge of state-sanctioned abuse and statelessness likewise gets lost in the fury.

Calls for the Rohingya to be expelled from Burma on the grounds that they are not citizens have been made by the very same people who were allowed to remain in their countries of asylum for years before citizenship was finally awarded – they assert however that this gesture should not be extended to the Rohingya.
Ko Ko Gyi

Tin Maung Htoo has lauded prominent activist Ko Ko Gyi’s proclamation that the Rohingya are not an ethnic nationality of Burma; but nor is he one of Canada. He and others seem to have a hard time explaining the rationale behind their comments.

What the “anti-Rohingya but pro-democracy lobby” also seem to misunderstand is that they have become effective lackeys of a regime that they have dedicated their lives to reforming or doing away with. A key policy of successive Burmese juntas is the divide and rule of ethnic groups, which has allowed the government to foment unrest, justify heavy-handed control and which has historically provided the excuse for why the country is not ready for democracy.

It is of great irony and great sadness that the country’s civilians, both at home and abroad, have finally lent their hand to this, only months into the transition process and after decades of resisting state propaganda. As far afield as London, the front door of Tun Khin, who heads the Burma Rohingya Organisation UK, has been kicked in, while anti-Rohingya protests have been targeted against Burma Campaign UK and the BBC, often by veterans of Burma’s pro-democracy movement who, exiled from their homeland, have gained citizenship in the UK.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s reaction to the unrest was to call for rule of law to be the decider of the status of Rohingya – a deliberately non-committal and vague standpoint. As Sai Latt notes in Asia Sentinel, “The Rohingya case provides a very clear example why the law itself can be a source of problems. Statelessness, ill treatment, and discrimination against the Rohingyas are not simply the results of a lack of the rule of law. Quite contrary, they are legally produced.”

The hypocrisy underpinning the Rohingya crisis calls into question the notion of equal rights, and indeed democracy, espoused by Burma’s pro-democracy movement; indeed that the gestures accorded to them should not be extended to those of different origin, religion, skin colour, or whatever it is that makes the Rohingya such vile creatures in the eyes of those engaged in their persecution. The inability of many to see the double standards being deployed is perhaps a sign that the mindset of the regime, a master of psychological warfare, lurks within those who have spent years rallying against it, and becomes yet another factor in the sobering realisation that Burma’s transition will be a long and painful process.

Burma: Regime behind Rohingya ethnic cleansing

Source from Greenleft, 26 June 2012
By Tony Iltis

Rohingya refugees trying to make it to Bangladesh.

There are wildly divergent estimates of the death toll from ethnic and religious violence in the Burmese state of Arakan.
Mainstream media reports and the Burmese government are claiming that fewer than 100 people have been killed in violence they describe as clashes between the Buddhist Rakhine majority and Muslim Rohingya minority communities.

However, Rohingya sources estimate thousands of deaths from a planned campaign of violent ethnic cleansing by Burmese government forces. Rohingya sources say the regime has been instigating Rakhine mob violence as part of their campaign.
France 24 said on June 22: “More than 80 people have been killed and thousands displaced in a wave of violence between Muslims and Buddhists in west Burma.”

On June 21, the Burmese government put the death toll at 62, Associated Press reported.

But the National Democratic Party for Human Rights (NDPHR), a Rohingya political party that won four seats in the democratic 1990 Burmese elections, said on June 19: “The information from Arakan confirmed that the death toll of Rohingya has exceeded 10,000 from Sittwe city alone, and a few thousand from Maungdaw, Rathedaung and Kyauktaw townships. 
“Most of them were shot dead, brutally beaten to death, burnt alive and the rest were those taken away by security forces into hidden areas.”
Reports on social media from Rohingya sources inside Arakan, such as the NDPHR, have been published in English on Malaysian-based website The Sail and the site of the Ethnic Rohingya Committee of Arakan in Malaysia.
These reports make a grim catalogue: along with mass killings, alleged atrocities include burning of villages, mass rape, mass arrests, torture, looting and extortion.

Rakhine mobs and armed Rakhine elements have been responsible for much of the violence, but the main perpetrators have been the military and paramilitary forces of the Burmese government: the police, the army, the navy and in particular the Nasaka border security forces.
There are also reports of clashes between Rohingya and Rakhine rioters and clashes between government forces and armed Rakhine groups.

The violence started on June 3 in Taungup township when 10 Rohingya bus passengers were beaten to death by a 300-strong lynch mob. For the preceding week, Buddhist extremist hate groups ― assisted by the local media in Arakan ― had been blaming Muslims for the May 28 rape and murder of a Rakhine woman in the village of Thabyaychaung.
This was used as a pretext to whip up violent anti-Rohingya sentiment.
The NDPHR said activists from the Wanthanu Rakheta Association were distributing anti-Muslim leaflets in Taungup on the morning of June 3 immediately before the lynching.

On June 18, three Rohingya men were sentenced to death for the May 28 rape and murder, Democratic Voice of Burma reported. One of the three, “accused of masterminding” the crime, had already died in custody (officially suicide), but death sentences can be given retrospectively under Burmese law.
Phil Robertson, head of the Asia division of Human Rights Watch (FRW), told DVB: “We condemn the imposition of the death penalty in all cases as cruel and inhumane treatment. But we’ve also had no access to information about this case, so there is no way to say whether the three men on trial are in fact guilty.”

Chris Lewa, Director of the Arakan Project, told DVB: “My concern would be whether there was any kind of proper judicial system. This was quite quick.”

More than a third of Burma’s population belongs to oppressed nationalities and dozens of national liberation struggles have been ongoing since Burma won independence in 1948. In the past, both Rakhine and Rohinhya armed groups have fought the Burmese government in Arakan, and sometimes each other.
No Rohingya groups have been involved in armed struggle for 10 years. The main Rakhine rebel group, the Arakan Liberation Party, entered peace talks with the government this year.

Successive US governments have had a strained relationship with Burma’s military rulers. The US even provides not-so-covert support to some of the insurgent groups.
However, a confidential October 10, 2002, cable from the US embassy in Rangoon ― published by WikiLeaks on August 30 last year ― repeats in good faith spurious allegations by Burmese military intelligence linking the Rohingya national movement with Osama bin Laden.
The same cable expresses scepticism at Burmese government charges of terrorism against other armed national movements.

The Burmese government has used the anti-Islam bias in the “war on terror” narrative, which the West now uses to justify its wars, to delegitimise Rohingya self-determination to Western policy makers.
Reporting the current violence in Arakan, the Western media have generally repeated claims by the Burmese regime and Rakhine chauvinists that the Rohingya are not indigenous to Arakan, but are immigrants from Bangladesh or their descendants.

In reality, the Rohingya can trace their existence in Arakan as far back as the Rakhine can. There are records of Islamic political entities in Arakan more than a millennium ago.
Antipathy between different ethnic and religious groups was fostered by the British during the colonial period. In World War II, just before Burma won independence, Arakan was the site of some of the biggest clashes between the British and Japanese empires.

Intersecting with this conflict was Burma’s struggle for independence and many local conflicts. This resulted in large-scale violence between Japanese-armed Rakhine and British-armed Rohingya militias.
Both sides committed massacres of civilians, but the Rohingya bore the brunt of them. There was a large flow of Rohingya refugees to the nearest British territory: what is today Bangladesh.

Since independence in 1948, there have been anti-Rohingya pogroms in 1949, 1967-8, 1978 and 1991, sending more refugees to Bangladesh.
Encouraging Buddhist chauvinism and anti-Rohingya prejudice is the Burmese state’s political response to Rakhine nationalism. For its part, Bangladesh sees the Rohingya as illegal immigrants from Burma.

A group of 130 Rohingya refugees those fled sectarian attacks were arrested in an island of Gwa township

Note: A group of 130 Rohingya refugees those fled sectarian attacks were arrested in an island of  Gwa township bordering with Irrawaddy Delta. But the report views them as suspected Bengali immigrants.

Over 100 men who are believed to be Bengali immigrants were recently arrested on Gwa Island that is situated seven miles away from Gwa Town in Arakan State.


A local resident said the authorities still have not publicized any information about how they arrived on the island and why they were arrested.

"The responsible authorities have not publicized anything about them yet. So, the people here are worrying why they have come to our island. So, we have written to the Gwa Township Peace and Stability Committee and demanded it publicize the matter immediately", said the resident.

The Gwa Township Peace and Stability Committee is said to be formed with 28 members both civilians and government officials for preventing any unrest in their township after the violent unrests that have occurred in some townships in Arakan State. The local residents are said to have written to the committee demanding it publicize the information about the arrival and arrest of those Bengali immigrants on Gwa Island on 24th of June.

"We have learnt that they have entered into Shweyachai Village on the island dividing themselves into small groups—four of them on 22nd of June, another five on 23rd of June and group after group so on. They all were arrested, but the people in our township are now worrying why they have come to our island.

Another resident in Gwa also confirmed that 130 boat-wreck Bengali immigrants were arrested on the island.

"We heard that there were 130 men in total. They came to the island on 20th of this month after their boat sailing from Bangladesh to Malaysia was wrecked near the island. They were arrested and said to still be being kept on the island by the authorities", said the resident.

A police officer from Gwa also confirmed the arrest of the immigrants on the island, but declined to tell any further details.

When we contacted the township administration office in Gwa over phone, a female official on duty said, her office still has not received any information about the arrest of the immigrants.

NDPHR: “Earnest Call to Save the Remaining Rohingyans in Arakan”

 Letter of NDPHR(exile) member Mr.Habib..

Dear All,

Many Rohingya people in exile including myself have struggle for democratization and the release of Political Prisoners in Burma. All of us hope that a day there will be Peace and Freedom. That day has come likely and Hope has come back for all.

But soon, ethnic cleansing against defenceless unarmed Rohingya is recurred in Arakan and there is a huge misinformation on the situation.. It is very horror and well organized from the beginning that Curfew and Order are imposed on only Rohingya while Rakhine people are freely allowed to carry out various attacks, looting goods and cash even harden woods and pillars and torching fire at last after security forces opening fires into Rohingya houses and Rohingyans. In this manner, many of our family members and relatives were killed including my cousins and my mum and sister are still missing..

Because of we are dark, or muslim or just Rohingya. I don’t know exactly. Despite politics, nationalities are not as important as the emergency. Nowadays in many local journal and online news, Rakhine- politicians, monks, historians and teachers are openly declaring that they could not share their lands, waters, foods and any resource for Rohingya, not anymore. Now, authority are replacing Rakhine people in Rohingya lands which were burnt down. High ranking authorities said that they don’t want to see any Kala in the town and Rohingya or Bengali or Kala could not be owner of anything in Burma.

Now, day by day Rohingyas are dying and disappearing by hundred from continuous arbitrary arrest, brutal abuses, starvation and lack of medication. Their cattle and goats, farming lands and crops were already taken away by Rakhines while all Rohingya in Arakan are confined within their houses. They can’t escape, they are trapped between the bullets of the authority and the knives of Rakhines. Rakhines are still chanting all over the town to cleans the remaining Rohingyans.

Pl do anything to stop all the abuses and crimes made on the remaining Rohingyas people before we go all extinguished. 100,000 Rohingyas are homeless today while there is raining season in Burma. Burmese authority do not provide any aid nor assistance for homeless Rohingyans. Soon our ethnicity will be disappeared and similar form will be utilized for other minorities. Only your voice can change something for us. We need your voice just to at least save our people. Save the remaining Rohingyas on an humanitarian ground. Let them have food and water and medication and shelter.

Please find a way to save our remaining relatives, our Rohingya people on Your Highness. We need international communities’ assistance, the authority will only be felt pressure by international communities. It is the moment given the racism in Arakan, so international help is the only situation for Rohingyas. Please help us.

No way home for Myanmar's Rohingya

Source from Asia Time, 27 June
By Jacob Zenn

The recent inter-ethnic riots between Rakhine and Rohingya communities in Myanmar highlight some of the major human security issues the country must face as it embarks on democratization and peace-building processes.

While there are no questions asked about the citizenship of 135 officially recognized ethnic groups across Myanmar, the majority of which straddle the country's borderlands with India, Bangladesh, China and Thailand, the Rohingya are viewed by the state as outsiders.

The Rohingya have lived in the border region between Bangladesh and Myanmar for generations, but as the aftermath of the riots shows, Myanmar citizens - elites and commoners alike - hold little sympathy for their stateless plight.

A typical post-colonial "indigene-settler" dispute exists in Rakhine state. The Buddhist Rakhines consider themselves as the original inhabitants of the land and perceive the Muslim Rohingya as "Bengali settlers". The Rohingya make conflicting historical claims to their rights as Myanmar citizens.

The recent tensions between the two communities escalated after the horrific rape and killing of a Rakhine girl in Kyat Ni Maw on May 28. Photos of her brutalized corpse were disseminated on the Internet, shortly after which news stations reported that three Rohingya were detained as suspects in her murder.

This prompted hundreds of Rakhines to rally against the crime in front of a police station and the local administrative agency of Rakhine state. Days later, on June 3, a group of Rakhines turned to vigilante justice when they reportedly killed nine Rohingya in a revenge attack on bus passengers in Taung Kote, Rakhine state.

Angered by the local media's slanted reporting of the murder and its provocative references to the Rohingya as kala, Rohingya in Yangon staged their own protests.

Although the word kala derives from the Pali word meaning "noble", it also means "black" in the Hindi language.The term is associated with racist connotations in the Burmese language, and is often used to refer to outsiders from the subcontinent, including Bangladeshis, Indians, Nepalis, Sri Lankans and Pakistanis.

To Rohingya, being called kala is to deny their historical connection to Rakhine state. The word "Rohingya" derives from the word "Rakhine", evidence of their connection to the land, Rohingya claim.

The Rohingya's protest over kala references also reflects their frustration over their official exclusion from Myanmar society. As the country's democratic reforms move ahead, many disfranchised Rohingya hope to gain citizenship rights, but so far there are no indications this is in the cards.

Myanmar's 1982 Citizenship Law established that the Rohingya, along with several other communities such as the Gurkhas (an ethnic community with historical links to Nepal), were not among the 135 officially recognized ethnic groups in Myanmar entitled to citizenship.

Myanmar's next census is scheduled for 2013, but no changes in the Rohingya's status are likely given that even the country's most respected leaders are approaching the issue with caution in the wake of the recent riots. Pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi said recently that "the problem should be tackled by fair application of the law", presumably the already standing Citizenship Law.

Ko Ko Gyi, an icon from the 1988 pro-democracy protests brutally suppressed by the military and until recently a prominent political prisoner, has openly opposed the Rohingya gaining citizenship. He also implied that sympathetic foreigners should stay out of the issue, in line with the military's long-held view on the matter.

"Now it is time that we announce our view on the Rohingya clearly. The Rohingya are not one of the ethnic groups of Myanmar at all. We see that the riots happening currently in Buthedaung and Maungdaw of [Rakhine] state are because of the illegal immigrants from Bangladesh called Rohingya and the mischievous provocations of some international communities," Ko Ko Gyi said.

"Therefore, such interfering efforts by some powerful nations on this issue without fully understanding the ethnic groups and other situations of Burma will be viewed as offending the sovereignty of our nation."

Empowered by Myanmar's recent lifting of restrictions on the Internet, citizens now freely communicate on social-media networks such as Facebook. Many have used racially charged language about the Rohingya that previously would have been banned or censored.

Their online postings have highlighted grassroots perceptions among Burmans that the Rohingya should not be considered citizens of Myanmar. Not only are the Rohingya referred to as kala on these posts, but they are also being viewed as "terrorists".

One representative post, for example, read: "We have a right of self-defense. I hope DASSK [Daw Aung San Suu Kyi] would understand that this is not bullying the minority. They are not a minority anyway. This is a sovereignty issue and this is just terrorism and they are evil enemies of freedom."

By mid-June, the government had declared martial law and imposed a curfew in several districts of Rakhine state. More than 80 have been killed and thousands of homes torched since the clashes first erupted. Sporadic violence has continued since the imposition of emergency rule over the area.

More than 800,000 Rohingya reside in Myanmar, but the violence is pushing a new wave of refugees into Bangladesh. The United Nations estimated there were already 300,000 Rohingya living in refugee camps in Bangladesh, many of whom fled earlier rounds of state suppression against their communities in Myanmar.

Myanmar and Bangladesh will hold talks about the Rohingya situation in early July - Myanmar's President Thein Sein is due to start a three-day visit to Bangladesh on July 15. Some hope the persecuted minority will be granted some sort of quasi-citizenship after the talks. If this should fail, then the Rohingya will remain in a legal and physical limbo hoping for refugee status somewhere abroad.

Violence Escalates up to Chin state

by NDPHR(exile), 

In Paletwa township, Chin State
According to Mr Rofiq, chairman of Ethnic Rohingya Community-ERC based in Malaysia, a group of Rakhines with arms mostly who are not from Paletwa were entered into the muslim village and attacked against the villagers in the evening of about 21 June. Fortunately, the government authority arrived there in good time and seized all arms from Rakhines and drove them away. The authority promised to look after the villagers. However, up to today 25 June, they are confined within the village and
their properties and they own shops in the bazaar are likely to be destroyed.

FYI: Three are about 17 houses with estimated less than a hundred muslims belong to Rohingya are living in a hillside village, part of Myoatma Quarter, beside Rabyit Taung (Rabyit Mountain) of Chin people. It is only one muslim village in all over Paletwa town and Chins state as well. The town is 45 miles far from Kyauktaw township and situated along the Kaladan River. Originally, majority of the people of Paletwa are Khami and Chin people and some Rakhine people living in the town were later arrivals from Arakan/Rakhine state.

In Kyauktaw township
Rakhines are still patrolling in all 11 Rohingya villages near by the town and trying to attack continuously therefore police and military are subsequently guarding the villages. Rakhines people openly declared that all Rohingya villagers should abandon their houses and leave immediately from the village. The deadline given is the 5th of July.

During Rohingyans are confined within their houses, their properties such as cattle, goats, farming lands, crops and carts were already took over by Rakhine people. There is nothing left for Rohingya and now they are trapped and starved without foods and medication.

FYI: All houses in Barua village and 12 houses in Khondol village of near Sugar Mill Factory and all houses in its opposite Nairaung village at Kyauktaw northern part and 46 houses in Kyauktaw southern village of Apaukwa (Aa-fok), were already set fired. About 130 Rohingyans half of them were teens and kids were killed during 15-18 June. Dozen of Rohingya villagers taken away by authority are not yet returned.
The remaining 11 Rohingya villages near the town and 20 other Rohingya villages are highly alert while overall attacks are ongoing in all Rohingya villages.

Rohingya from Sittwe: Stateless to Homeless

By NDPHR(exile),
Last night, a group of Rakines set fire at some buildings belong to Markinnya along the downtown in Mawleik area of Sittwe. But It was stop on time after military and police forces arrived there.  
Today, chief of state Immigration Instruction arrived at Sittwe from Yangon and he accompanied by Rakhine politicians toured all affected areas. 
He instructed local authority that he don't want to see any muslim residing in the town. Local authority informed based on administrative instruction, a few remaining Rohingya houses in the town would also be relocated in designated areas of refugee camp along Dar-baine village.
A few hour later, local immigration authority announced to conduct immigration status of Rohingya and began it from afternoon in Sakki fara (Thakkaybyin village).
Authorities say that they are providing eight square feet tent for each muslim homeless family and the signboards of "Ethnic People' Land" are erected in all over Rohingya lands which were burnt down during sectarian attacks.
(Homeless Rohingyans standing in front of their tents of designated refugee camp along Dar-baine village)

UN envoy’s visit to Arakan the lies of military assigned Rohingya MP U Shwe Maung

By NDPHR(exile),

In recent visit by UN envoy- Vijay Nambiar to Arakan, he was warmly welcome by military general in the Sittwe airport. The government assigned Rohingya MP for Buthidaung township, U Shwe Maung and Rakhine MP accompanied by military generals were also there.

The UN envoy who came from U.S.A.(UN) to survey the dept of deaths and damages in where violence occurred, was unable to visit the most affected areas and to meet with Rohingya victims. Beside, Buthidaung MP U Shwe Maung who does not represent for Sittwe township deliberately lied with UN envoy by misquoting that the death tool of Rohingya from Sittwe is around 20 to 25 only. He has to lie too since he and his family were early given protection and shifted to Naypyidaw from Buthidaung township of Arakan by the help of government.

It is another lie and insulting the whole Rohingya community and victims of those lost lives in ongoing sectarian attacks. Recently, we had also discoveredMr U Hla Tan’s misrepresentation on behalf of the Sittwe Township local Muslims and his misinforming letter sent to MP U Shwe Maung and then the letter circulated across the net that written 159 muslims murdered in Sittwe up to 18 June.
However, the truth could not hidden that the most effected areas in Sittwe are East and West Barsara (Sanpya), Fishing village, Shwe Bya, Rohingya fara(Zay-haung Mawleik) and Nazi village consisting seven small villages around it. The victims’ relatives based in these villages confirmed that half of the population from East and West Barsara (Sanpya), Fishing village, Shwe Bya and about 8,500 Rohingyans from Nazi village were killed.

In deed, Yangon based Rohingyan politicians MP U Shwe Maung and others from Religious Affairs Council, are hiding with fear or avoiding the crisis from the beginning of the violence. When one of our colleague well known by them questioned about their silent, they refused to explain over the phone as they are under watch and authority are tracking their phonelines.

It’s cleared that current Rohingya politicians are betraying with its own people and enjoying the power of luxury by monopolizing over Rohingya. Ironically, they ever do abide within the government’s instructions. It is only their priority and their goal in order to maintain their positions. They will never voice out for own people because they are government back USDP’s members and assigned by government.
It is a bitter chapter to turn old pages of how some of our former Rohingyan politicians responded during the flows of refugees in 1978-Nagamin and 1991-Pyitaya. They said that those Rohingyans fleeing were for their own, for religious purposes and they back to their lands.

A former political prisoner and leader of Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand-BRAT, recalled about Mr Saleh Master elected Rohingya representative of general Ne Win BSPP who misquoted against the refugees influx during a group of international agency visited in Bawlibazar(Kyien Chaung) in 1978.
But Maung Kyaw Nu continued that Rohingya ever proud for a man like Mr Eliyas who was NLD member of state level but he was killed after he refused to accept the fake scheme of 1991 refugees influx instructed by general Khin Nyunt.

From 23 June, the government authority in Sittwe are saying that they are assisting to relocate unregistered illegal Bengali immigrants to temporarily erected tents along the townside from inside the town. It was already reported in RFA news. While local Burmese newspapers and tv are continued to portray the false image of Rohingya across the country.

Now even in Yangon, people are heard that the authority will soon conduct an operation to check immigration status of muslims living in Yangon.
It is very visible view of how the government hates against muslims in Burma. Nevertheless, it’s a pre-pogrom of cleansing of unwanted people because it does not want to include unwanted groups in the first Burma’s census which would be conducted in 2014.

In brief, we must aware from the past Cyclone Nargis hit in Irrawaddy Delta during 2008. Than Shwe government responded that only seven people were killed and a few houses were damaged and it might be manageable. After two days he used to say 2-3 dozens people were killed. After seven days when international observers reached the areas, the death tool was crossed over 150,000 and displaced more than a million?
Therefore, UN envoy must be very cautious and used its super power urgently to monitor to access the situation in order to stop further violation and deaths because there are daily 4 to 12 people are dying from starvation and diseases while arbitrary dealing, arrest and tortures by authorities are taking place silently.
It is also note that until international observers and international communities do not access the situation, the truth will not be revealed, the remaining homeless victims will be perished by authority’s harsh dealings and more death tool would be occurred day after day.

Report of Ongoing crisis in Arakan (23-24 June)

Sittwe township

23 June: The government authority are saying that they are assisting to relocate unregistered illegal Bengali immigrants to temporarily erected tents along the townside from inside the town.

A Joint Statement on the Occasion of World Refugee Day- 20 June 2012: "15 Days of Ongoing Violence against Defenceless Unarmed Rohingyans in Arakan State of Western Burma (8-22 June)"

 Brief Situation Report   
"15 Days of Ongoing Violence against Defenceless Unarmed Rohingyans in Arakan State of Western Burma (8-22 June)"  
On the Occasion of World Refugee Day- 20 June  2012
We undersigned nine Rohingya organizations would like express our earnest request to draw your urgent attention on the ongoing crisis in Arakan state of western Burma. According to the information we received in the past 15 days, the death number of Rohingyan is exceeded over 10,000 from Sittwe city alone and similar number from Maungdaw, Rathedaung and Kyauktaw townships. Most of them were shot dead, brutally beaten to death, burnt alive and killings of thousands of the rest of those taken away by security forces into hidden areas.  At least, 25,000 of Rohingya houses were burnt down and more than 100,000 are homeless all over Sittwe, Maungdaw, Rathedaung, Rambre Island and Kyauktaw townships.

It is not fighting each other but it is another terror of well planned genocide by Rakhines cooperatively with local armed forces. From the beginning, Curfew and Order are restored only for Rohingya and confined within their homes. While Rakhines are openly allowed to trespass and attack Rohingya villages. Local security forces who are also Rakhine are sided with Rakhine people and explored more brutal crimes that include shooting fires into the houses and letting its partisan Rakhines to torch fire. Again, Rohingyans those came out from homes were brutally beaten and slaughtered and those fleeing were shot fires regardless of women or children. Plus, sexual abuses, looting goods and cash.

In advance, waters, electric, foods are cut-off and restriction imposed in Rohingya villages since 3 June. So, it is all about well planned ethnic-cleansing pogrom systematically turned into religious violence. Likewise, the government also shows its sympathy by setting up relief centres and contributing aid to those attacker Rakhines' family members. While three is no consideration at all about homeless Rohingya victims of women, children and those injuries who are starving day by day.
Rohingyans are ending-up between gun-fires of security forces and lethal knives of Rakhine people. This time they can't escape because security forces rounded up all the way out, those hiding in remote areas were also attacked by Rakhines and security forces and navy forces are patrolling across the beach and eliminating them.

There are urgently in need of effective international intervention. UN's verbal pressure would not enough to ease on going violations supported by local authority and that would not safe the lives of remaining vulnerable Rohingyans. The matter of Rohingya is directly related to international principle and UN must effectively interfere urgently.
We would like to call United Nation and international communities to directly monitor the situation. And we demand;
-To immediately deploy International Peace Keeper Forces in Rohingya villages in order to protect the remaining Rohingyans,
-To send International Rescue Team to rescue Rohingyans who are floating between Burma-Bangladesh waters,
-To immediately stop various arrest, brutal abuses including sexual abuses and killing of Rohingyans,
-To immediately supply aid and medicines and provide shelter for homeless Rohingyans,
-To immediately release Rohingyans those taken away by authorities,
-To bring into account for Rohingyans those lost lives and lost properties and houses,
-To compensate all affected Rohingya victims, 
-To assist in relocation of their own lands and reconstruction of thier houses on the same their own lands.

Rohingya people are seriously and painfully suffering from starvation as there is no aid nor assistance they received while Rakhines have been enjoying all sorts of cares from authorities and well protected. Rohingyans need immediate supply of foods, clothes, medicines and shelters. Because, the restriction is still imposed on Rohingya people who are dying of hunger, lack of medical care, shelters and clothing.

It's a serious crimes carry out against Rohingya in inside Arakan state that ignited from unrelated a Rakhine girl (Ma Thida Thwey) dead in her own Rakhine village of Tha-bray-chaung ward of Kyauknimaw village on 28 May 2012. Relating to this, Rakhine members of "Wanthanu Rakheta Association" distributed leaflets of blaming muslim on the day of 3 June early morning in Taungup township. It is just an excuse of racial instigation while Rohingya people are not allowed to enter or cross into Rakhine villages. Following this, ten Muslim pilgrims killed in a mob attacks by 300 Rakhines in Taungup township on the same day.
Since Gwa, Taungup, Tandwe and Ponnagyuan townships defined as muslim-free-zones within Arakan state from year 1983, there were several hundreds of Rohingyans were killed in similar way in these regions and such crime will be continued to carry until the government implemented such draconian act.
This is a certain consequence in Rohingya history again very soon after Rakhine rebel group- "Arakan Liberation Party-ALP" entered into Arakan state. We don't know the secrecy of what type of promise established between Rakhine rebel-ALP and the government.

Historically, such cleansing pogroms were took place against Rohingya in years 1942, 1949, 167/68, 1978 and later of 1991. This time it's well organized that Rakhine people received direct supports from the government armed forces.
The situation in Arakan is abusive and totally horror even in normal condition that every month at least hundred of Rohingyans were arrested with false charges and a few died during interrogation. Despite Rakhines people wrongfully describe Rohingyans are recent migrants, in deed in the past five decades there were no Rakhine settlement found in the territory of Northern Rakhine State. Today Rakhines those found in these regions were came from the program of model village settlement by the government from year 1991. It's true that there are a few hundred thousands of Bengali people in Burma but they are mostly living in central Burma and Mon state. In Arakan state, Bengali population is not more than a few hundreds.

While international media are unable to reach into the areas where violences are carried out by terrorist Rakhines jointly with security forces, the local Burmese news groups are prepared to misinformed the world by filming of the dead bodies of Rohingyans after defaming their faces, dressing-up with yellow-robes of monk and putting guns on captive Rohingyans. Including Yangon Press International, VOA , RFA and other anti-Rohingya news agencies release fabricated news in the beginning. However, the nature of Burmese officials and Burmese news is well known to the world. And intl media reports must represent the victims' voices rather than who are historically tyrants..

Rohingya people occasionally face intolerable violences are also part of the government's responsibility for strucking Rohingya from citizenship right under 1982-new citizenship law based on the changes of Rakhine state from Arakan state in 1974.
International communities including the world leaders need to enhance the Burmese government to urgently halt on going brutal attacks against defenceless unarmed Rohingya, to take action against those involved and to restore Law and Order and to share equal rights of native Rohingya people including their citizenship right.

The following report is a brief of ongoing crisis in Arakan is developing day after day based on information attained from inside Arakan by the help of Rohingya activists in both home and exile. Some information are lately came as a result of communication difficulty therefore please read them all again.
