Though Police did not give any reason why they have arrested these people, according to other Rohingyas, they were arrested because they refused to sign on the paper terming themselves (Rohingyas) as Bengalis. Besides, the similar process is being carried out against Rohingyas in the village of Anauk Rai, Pauktaw Tsp as well. Authority is forcing Rohingyas to sign on the papers on which it is written that they (Rohingyas) are not Rohingyas but Bengalis. Those who refuse are being inhumanely tortured and detained.

Recently, Burmese government has formed a commission consist of Military, NaSaKa (Border Security Affairs), Immigration and Rakhine extremists in response to the call of the UN High Commissioner for the Human Rights, Ms. Navi Pillay, to give Citizenship to Rohingyas. But what actually Burmese government doing is the re-implementation of a black law established by the late dictator Gen. Ne Win. This 1982 Citizenship Law of Burma was coined and specifically designed to expulse Rohingyas out of Myanmar. The law clearly violates Article 15, Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
