BURMA: Misery life of Rohingya in Rathidaung, ArakanMohamed Ibrahim for Salem-News.com
One village after another in Burma was burned, the residents abused and murdered, by government forces and Rakhine Buddhist mobs.
(RATHIDUANG, Burma Mayu Press) - This is Rathidaung, one of the seventeen townships in Arakan state, Burma. There are five Rohingya villages in Rathidaung Township; Soe Pyan (Pan Gaing), Kuduk Chaung (Koun Dan), Sera Pyan (Kraru Koun Dan), Pran Haung (Praung Chaung) and Anauk Pyan.
On 12th June 2012, Rakhines and the military attacked Kuduk Chaung village, killed two women, looted all the valuable properties including golden ornaments and money, burnt down the entire village consisting of forty-nine houses, including one Mosque, and driven out all the villagers to Chin Kali Rohingya village.
Now they are staying in the homes of others and no assistance has been made available since the riot. They have to wrest money to Inn Din and Kyawk Pan Du Border Security Force (Nasaka) camps when they come across to appeal for donations from the other places.
On 13 June 2012, Rakhine, Police and Nasaka assaulted Soe Pyan village which had 297 Rohingya houses. During the attack, a woman and two children were killed. After robbing all properties, they torched the village into ashes - the complete village... including two Mosques and one Madarasa (Religious Arabic College).
Those residents were temporarily staying in Kodan Kauk Rohingya village. They are also not receiving any support from NGOs or the government. They also had to pay money to Inn Din and Kyawk Pan Du Nasaka camps who are willing to support the displaced Rohingya.
On 21st June 2012, Rakhine, Police and Military attacked to Paran Chaung Rohingya village, consisting of 145 houses. They killed one woman, looted all the valuable things including gold, money, clothes and rice, and torched the whole village including one Mosque. Villagers escaped to Chin Kali Rohingya village. Now they are staying in other people’s houses and no help has been received since the violence.
Rakhine mobs and the army assaulted the village of Sera Pyan on 19 June 2012, where 230 Rohingya houses existed. One man and two women were killed. All of the precious valuables like gold and money were looted. The residents were forcibly driven out to Kodan Kauk village and now they are staying on a Mango farm of Mullah Abul Hashim.
No rations and food were provided to them. After driving residents away, the Rakhine and local police looted all the household materials and burnt down into ashes the full village including one Mosque and one big Madarasa (Religious Arabic University).
On 19th June 2012, Rakhine and Police resumed attacking to Anauk Pyan village of 280 family houses. Sixty Rohingya (men and women) were brutally shot to death and cut with long swords and sharp knives. Two days later, 183 Rohingya men were arrested and taken to Sittway central Jail where they were inhumanly treating, according to a report from eye witness. More than fifty houses were burnt down including one big Mosque. The racist Rakhine and security forces looted all the properties. The victims were sheltering in other parts of the village which was not destroyed.
Since the excited conflict of Rakhine terrorists working jointly with Burmese government, no aid has been provided to the survivors. The displaced Rohingya peopl also have not received permission to work. So, all the Rohingya victims from Rathidaung Township are living in other villages where no adequate food and medical centres for them. They need to give money to Inn Din and Kyawk Pan Du Nasaka camps when someone comes across to beg for donations from outside.
