Arakan: Religious institutions have been targeted by government authorities either to demolish or to seal by using the puppets they have raised in every villages.

Recently some areas of a Religious school in kuansibong village of Northern Maungdaw have been demolished by government authorities. Due to puppet’s misinformation of illegal occupation in the Madarasa compound authorities ordered to demolish constructed parts in those areas and forcefully took signatures from Madarasa’s committee.
In another similar case in Fetabo village of Buthidaung, renovation processes of a mosque have been ceased and another Madarasa have been sealed by the authority.
Moreover in that case authorities extorted over 100 lakh kyats and in order to threaten the local innocent villagers, authorities from different departments comes to the village time to time illegally.
Demolishing religious structures and money extortion are common Genocidal tool in Arakan which are accelerating day by day due to puppet’s misinformation and fabricated cases, whom are given resistant by the government itself.

Buthidaung- Village head U Kyaw Tun Tha has been extorting money from the innocent, poor Rohingya people in abundance alleging on different baseless excuses in U Thei Ma, Southern Buthidaung, Arakan, according to the dwellers.

The village head inhumanely extorted 45 thousands Kyats form Mohammad Kasim, 50, son of Fouzol Ahmad, an inhabitant of Praing Taung village on 13 July, alleging him that he grazed his cattle on the head’s pasture.
On 7 August, he extorted 150 thousands Kyats from an innocent Rohingya named Maulovi Mozaffor, 50, accusing him that he caught fish by net form the fish breeding pond of the lair head.
Boshir, 40, son of Shikandor living in Du U Thei Ma was extorted 60 thousands Kyats on allegation of ploughing head’s land while he was tilling in his own one nearby the head’s  on 5 August.
Moreover, the oppressor extorted 100 thousands Kyats from Amirahman, 30, son of Sowyedu Rahman on 20 July, accusing him that his cattle came on the bridge of the village.
Although the township administrator is informed of it, he does not take any step to stop the village head form the sinful activities as the sufferers are ethnic Rohingyas whom they want to finish trickily from the Arakan State.

Akyab: An innocent Rohingya drowned and died in a nearby lake in Thay Chaung (Guwalia Del) Akyab, on his way home from Beda on 20 August, 2016.

The victim is identified to be Hashim, 43 who was a fish seller striving livelihood for his wife and children, including a disabled child by living in a concentration camp.
On 20 August, while Hashim was was coming back to his home  buying fish from Beda by a small boat, he accidentally  felt down in the breeding lake and disappeared.   After a day, his corpse was found near sandy shore at 11:30 pm.
Due to this tragedy, Hashim’s  family is unable to survive as  he was the only wage earner of the family and none of his children is old enough to earn.
This is not the first tragedy in this lake, even at the beginning of August, 4 Rohingya people died due to drowning boats there. People are compelled to  move by this way as it’s the only easy way left for the Rohingyas to travel  from Thay Chaung  to Beda in search of livelihood.
Restriction of movement is another genocidal tool which is strongly imposed on Rohingyas. Moreover authorities are labeling these types of murders as accidental deaths, where no one can be accounted even in the shield of  so called democratic government.

Sittwe (Akyab) – A Rohingya working in Light Infantry Battalion (LIB)-20 has been arbitrarily thrashed by two military to snatch money he brought to buy a goat from the battalion in La Ma Chay, Sittwe, Arakan, according to a relative of the victim.

The victim Mohammad Amin, 25 years old, had been doing odd jobs in LIB-20 and became familiar with the soldiers including the battalion commander. One day, the commander said to him, “We have some goats to sell. If anyone wants, bring him/her here.” But he did not know that the commander had an ulterior motive.
A relative of Amin wanted a goat whom he took to the battalion with other two Rohingyas at 5 pm on 18, August. When they reached at the gate of the battalion, Amin told them to wait there and he went in to talk to the commander. He cunningly told him, “We keep the goats in a fishery, away from here and so, you have to go with the soldiers there.” Believing the commander, he came out and met with other three at the gate to tell them go back home as he was going to the fishery to bring a goat.
Amin along with two soldiers were going there by a motorbike via Sittwe-Yangon High way. After crossing the bridge nearby Na Yi Kan Mough village at around 8 pm, the soldiers stopped the bike suddenly and one of them went in a bush pretending to pee. The other told Amin to give the money he brought to buy goat. As soon as he handed the money, the soldier started blowing fist and kicking to him restlessly saying nothing. Fortunately, he was able to run away and had been hiding in nearby paddy fields for the whole night. At the meantime, his family and relatives were concerning for him as he did not return to home.
From there for about two days,he walked through the bush, not to be seen by the Moughs, in search of a Rohingya village. Finally he reached in Piyali Chaung, a Rohingya village that seemed to him a heaven where he got a chance to revive.
These kinds of crimes against Arakanese Rohingya people are increasing day by day as the government is the instigator of the criminals including local Moughs and authorities.
