By Rohingya Vision TV Correspondents | 21st October, 2017

Buthidaung: Burning Rohingya villages and equipped Moghs (Rakhine) with swords and weapons were witnessed by International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC)’s delegates, while they were visiting the affected villagers on 2oth October, 2017 in northern Buthidaung, reports an eyewitness.

A group of International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) consisting of 3 members visited the villages like in Badaga and Choundong village track and also the nearby villages like Tami, Shiddafara, Fansi in Buthidaung Township.

There they asked the villagers about their trapped situations and saw the affected villages in the area which were earlier burnt down by the Burmese forces.

While returning via the Murungfara village of Choungdond village track, they saw some Rohingya houses, which were burning heavily. When investigated about the ongoing fire from the local Rohingyas, one of them quoted that “Border Guard Police (BGP) and Moghs (Rakhine) burned those house and they have been committing these crimes, since 25th August, 2017”.

On their further journey in the evening they saw a group of equipped Rakhine (Moghs), Murung, Chakmas, and Quii walking through the hilly areas. They were equipped with long swords, knives and other weapons like guns, etc. When asked about their activities they gave their introduction and went back.

International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) also visited the Washillafar in northern Buthidaung, where more than 30 families are trapped in extreme inhumane conditions and are under massive threats from government authorities and Moghs (Rakhine).

The delegates inquired about their needs and terrific situation, consoling them to stay in their village with hopes of help through them.

On the same day at 7 pm Rakhine extremists (Moghs) blazed 2 Rohingya houses in Nayafara village of Lawadong village track, Buthidaung Township and the fire was burning massively for an hour and destructed the houses completely. Owners of the Houses were identified as:

  1. Muhammed Taher
  2. Muhammed Hussain

Burning Rohingya villages on daily basis with government’s collective forces and Rakhine extremist (moghs) have become a common crime in Arakan (Rakhine), where they are free to commit and deny as well. But witness by the ICRC’s delegates once again proves crimes against humanity on Rohingya, which the world bodies have failed to take any immediate action to a genocide that is taking place so transparently and it’s not a hidden fact anymore.
