Will Suu Kyi sound off about Rathedaung Rohingya Blockade by Rakhines?

Rathedaung: As the state counselor, would Aung San Suu Kyi say anything against the blockade of Rohingyas by the neighboring Rakhines in Zay Di Pyin of Rathedaung amid the silence of local authorities and their open support, instead, for the perpetrators?

Since late July, Rohingyas of Zay Di Pyin have been blockaded inside their hamlet by their Buddhist neighbors. According to Reuters, the Muslims in the village of Zay Di Pyin had been blocked from going to work or fetching food and water for the last three weeks, although a small number had been allowed through the blockade to buy provisions on Tuesday.

And also the source has quoted Police saying that Rakhine Buddhist villagers were restricting the amount of food the Rohingya could buy, but denied their movement around the village and access to work had been blocked.

“As the village is an isolated Muslim village, by ill-treating like this they (Rakhines) are trying to force us to flee the village, in order to make the region muslim-free.” said A.K.B from Zay Di Pyin, adding “It is quite chaotic. Despite authorities existence, how these Rakhines dare to do this, while they are not Law Enforcement.”

Observers said, “The silence of government’s higher officials like the state counsellor and others over the issue shows their evil intent against this minority. It is more than three weeks now that they are blockaded but everybody has turned a blind eye to the incident. Villagers blockading their neighbors, and the authorities keeping silent, it is quite unjustifiable.”

Three Rohingyas Decapitated, the Criminals Set Free

On 31st July, 2017, Buddhist extremists (Moghs) backed by the local authorities decapitated a father with 2 sons working in the farm in Rathedaung, Arakan who were found floating on the water.

This tragic incident took place in upper Neng Ya village of the west under Rathedaung Township on last Sunday.

For the cultivation of the rainy crops, the two sons with their father had been ploughing the lands hired from U Win Maung, a habitant of Zey Di Pyin under the same township.

The tree fellows were sleeping in the hut built nearby the lands at night on 30, July. When it was about 1 pm, Rkahine extremists, approximately 20, came there with wooden sticks, knives and machetes and then tied them with ropes while they were thrashing them inhumanly.

As the victims were from Rohingya Muslims whom are being exterminated daily with the help of Myanmar government, the extremists did not free them alive and decapitated them taking in a safe place, said the locals.

The inhumanly tortured and decapitated victims are: Iman Huson, son of Abdu Goni, 53; Noor Hakim, son of Iman Huson, 21 and Noor Alom, son of Iman Huson, 20.

At aroung 02:30 pm on last day (31 July), the decapitated corpses (two without no heads) were found floated on the surface of the water in the Zouh Pyin Chaung stream in the locality.  When some people from Kyin Taung village tried to fetch the dead-bodies, Kyaw Kyaw, the vice police officer of the Border Guard Police (BGP) camp prohibited them saying that the bodies could be buried after postmortem, the locals added.

The state counsellor office information committee released a news about this tragedious incident without mentioning any details about the murderers as the killers are the Rakhine (Mogh) extremists backed by the government, said a local human rights activist pondering over the report published.

Fabrication of Justificatory Stories

It is usual that before making an attack, those Rakhine extremists fabricate some stories to justify their pre-planned attacks. Here in the case of Zay Di Pyin, they have announced missing of a Rakhine man prior to the murder of the three Rohingya men, who has been by Rohingyas in another village. But there was no investigation from the authorities. Likewise, Rohingyas were blamed for the murder of eight Mro men in Kaing Gyi of Northern Maungdaw, who were killed in a drug-related conflict among Rakhines, Mros and BGPs. But Muslims were accused of the murder falsely and intentionally to be targeted further. Ma Thi Dar Htwe case in 2012 was also similar.
