Maungdaw: Military and BGP jointly continue raids, arrests and tortures against the helpless and poor Rohingyas in Maungdaw and Buthidaung as well.

The join forces conducted a raid in Say Bay Gone village of northern Maungdaw on 7th August 2017 and arrested an innocent local, reported a villager on the condition of anonymity.

In the raid, authorities arrived in the early morning and conducted illegal checks in every Rohingyas’ houses. During the check, they started beating up any passers-by and pedestrians on the road.

Following the fear of raids and the usual inhuman torture, all the men fled to nearby villages and jungles. Later a Rohingya was arrested for keeping a small unsharpened knife, which he uses for daily household work. The arrestee is still unidentified and none knows about his condition.

Another horrible raid was taken place in a village of Tin May (Locally Tami) under Taung Bazar, Buthidaung Township on 5th August 2017.

BGP and military raided the village simultaneously, where 2 Rohingyas were arrested, according to the locals.

“The BGP commander of the area threatened to burn down the whole village even if he was given punishment of dismissal from the rank” says a threatened Rohingya.

Such kinds of arbitrary Raids in Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung have made Rohingyas intolerable to live in their own ancestral land. And it seems that authorities along with the Moghs (Rakhines) trained with guns are trying to wage a war with the helpless local Rohingyas in the region.
