Maung Daw, Arakan: Rohingya Muslim Students at the Government High School in Bawli Bazaar (Kyein Chaung), Northern Maung Daw, are barred from performing Congregational Friday Prayers by the Headmaster of the school. In fact, the students are not allowed to perform any prayer during the school time.

Since last year, the classes have been segregated and the students of Rohingyas and Rakhines are taught separately. Therefore, the headmaster has designed the school time for Muslim Students so systematically and strictly that it leaves no resting hours (during the mean hours, Muslim Students Pray) between 9AM and 3PM. “Other prayers can be performed alone, but Friday one must be in congregation. Therefore, the headmaster is religiously persecuting us” said a student.

According to the Bawli Bazaar villagers, the headmaster aggressively involved in the anti-Muslim violence in Maung Daw last year.  And the headmaster has issued expel order from the school for any Muslim Student going for prayer during the school time. “We feel we should be treated equally. And as a headmaster of an educational institution, he should not practice and even show religious bigotry in the school. Otherwise, what is the meaning of the education he has pursued?” the student continued.

“International Community should closely monitor the ongoing religious discriminations as well as other forms of excessive human rights violations against religious and ethnic minorities in Myanmar (Burma). According to US Commission report, Myanmar still remains as a country of the worst religious persecutions in the world” another student explained.
