3-     Rakhine Police Use Racist Slur and Extort Money from a Rohingya

Buthidaung Township, Arakan

Anwar (son of) Shabi Rahman is a local Rohingya of the village of Alay-Chaug, Buthidaung Township. In front of Buthidaung forestry department at the village of Kachcha-Pek-Kan-Pyin on his way back home from the downtown of Buthidaung, around 12:30PM on 5th May 2014, his motorcycle was hit by another motorcycle being ridden by a Rakhine (Magh).

But only Anwar was arrested by a traffic police named U Than Shwe. When Anwar said “it was not me who hit his motorcycle but his motorcycle hit mine,” the traffic police replied “no matter who hit whom, it is you who will be punished because you are a Kular (Kalar) and he’s a Taing-Yin-Thar (son of indigenous people).” After that, the police extorted Kyat 70,000 from Anwar for his release.

  • Kular is a derogatory term used against anyone of Indian descends.

4-      Rakhine Administrator Prevents WFP Staff from his Duty

Noor Alam (son of) Mir Kasim is an employee of World Food Program (WFP) in Buthidaung. He visited the village of Bagguna in the same township in order to make a list of poor people at the village.

However, Maung Hla Thein, a Rakhine extremist and administrator of the village, prevented him from making the list. The reason why the administrator did so is that he doesn’t want poor Rohingyas in the village to be helped by anyone.

5-     Acute Humanitarian Crises Faced by Rohingyas in Aung Mingalar Quarter

Sittwe (Akyab) Township, Arakan State

Aung Min Galar Quarter in Sittwe (Akyab) Township is the only remaining Rohingya quarter in the downtown left undestroyed after the burning of Rohingya villages in June 2012 by Rakhine terrorists. However, since then, Rohingyas in the quarter have been blocked and forced to face a slow burning genocide.

Some acute crises that Rohingyas in the quarter face are extreme travel restrictions, no access to livelihoods, no access to education, no medical treatments, malnutrition and social segregation etc. It is felt that they can have no hope to live and are being invited by the death.

When people from the quarter need to travel from a township to another for the sake of medical treatments, they need to bribe Kyat 5, 000,000 to the State Government. How can poor people in the village such a huge amount? As a result, many are dying not only due to malnutrition but also due to the lack of medical treatments.

Now, it is an open-secret that the Rakhine State Government is fully behind the GENOCIDE of Rohingyas. So, people of the world, Save the People of Aung Mingalar Quarter as well as other victims of Genocide in the country. (Report by Hla, Sallam Oic Group)

Note: the reports are compiled in as exact speech as it has been reported by the correspondents in Arakan.
