Rohingya Baby Die due to Practicing Racism in Rakhine-Owned Clinic

By Rohingya Mirror

Maungdaw, Arakan (Rohingya Vision) — A one and half year-old Rohingya baby died in Mauungdaw Township yesterday as the management of a Rakhine-owned clinic deliberately ignored the case of the suffering baby.

The deceased baby is identified to be the baby of the U Hafiz Ahmed Noor Mohammed hails from ‘Dael Fara’ hamlet of ‘Myoma Kayintan (Shidda Fara)’ village.

The baby was reported to be suffering from acute fever and flu. And hence, was taken to Dr. Moe Kyaw Thu, a child specialist, practicing at a Rakhine-owned clinic in the downtown of Maungdaw. However, Daw Shwe Se, the clinic owner’s wife and manager of the clinic, didn’t allow the patient to get access to the child specialist for treatment causing the baby’s demise.

“The baby of Hafiz Ahmed, suffering from acute fever and flu for three days, was taken to Dr. Moe Kyaw Thu practicing at the ‘Thu Kha Mon’ clinic in the downtown of Maungdaw last Friday. He gave the baby treatments and asked his father to come back to the clinic after two days.

Therefore, the father took his baby to the clinic again yesterday (on June 12) as per the doctor’s instructions. However, Daw Shwe Se, the manager of the clinic and wife of owner of the clinic, Dr. Aung Kyaw Sein, deliberately kept the baby aside. Even when the father of the dying baby requested her again and again to allow him meet the child specialist, the racist lady manager racially abused the man using derogatory slurs.

When the baby passed away, she ousted him from the clinic. However, the child specialist didn’t seem to be aware ofThuka Mon 2 what’s happening outside his chamber at that time,” said a local Rohingya Maungdaw.

“Daw Shwe Se and her staffs at the clinic always behave rude with and discriminate against the Rohingya patients and the caretakers of the patients.

The ‘Thuka Mon’ clinic became instantly famous in Maungdaw Township because Dr. Moe Kyaw Thu used to treat the baby patients well and with cares. As it has already become famous or due to the pressures from the owner of the clinic, Dr. Aung Kyaw Sein, exactly not known, Dr. Moe Kyaw Thu has lately stopped treating the patients like he once used to do,” he continued.

Dr. Aung Kyaw Sein is a racist Rakhine doctor and in-charge of Maungdaw General Hospital. He has the records of killing several Rohingya patients instead of saving lives.
