“Five days of well planned ethnic-cleansing taking place against defenceless unarmed in Arakan state of western Burma”
………………..Urgent UN’s intervention is only option…………………
“Please do something to save Rohingya as a Human being from well planned ongoing massacre.”
In brief: At least 300 Rohingyans from Maungdaw and more than 400 Rohingyans from Sittwe were shot dead and brutally beaten to death and other several hundreds of Rohingyans taken away are missing. At least, Rohingya houses in 40 villages from Maungdaw and Almost all Rohingya villages from Sittwe/Akyab city were burn down. Beside, the fates of hundreds of Rohingya women and children escaped by boats are unknown..
It’s a serious crimes carry out against Rohingya in inside Arakan state that ignited from a Rakhine girl dead in her own Rakhine village of Tha-bray-chaung ward of Kyauknimaw village on 28 May 2012 and ten Muslims killed in a mob attacks by 300 Rakhines in Taungup township on 3 June 2012. From the beginning of violence, the security forces are sided with Rakhine people and explored more brutal violences against Rohingyans. Security armed forces involving Rakhine people are brutally shooting and killing, burning Rohingyan villages including religious buildings, destroying shop lots and looting goods and cash.
The government does not show any sign to stop on going crimes committing by its Rakhine people and security forces, unlike it said in Naypyidaw office. Rakhine people are given authorization to continuously carry out attacking, killing, torching fire and looting with the support of security forces. Likewise, the government also ordered to leave all NGOs from northern Arakan state and showing its sympathy by contributing of aid to those terror Rakhines’ members. There is no consideration at all about Rohingya victims of women, children and those injuries in their own villages. Since the beginning of violence, a few number of Rohingyans were able to escape and the rest are ending-up between gun-fires of security forces and lethal knives of Rakhine people.
Security forces continue to impose curfew on Rohingya while Rakhine people are freely allowing to carry out crimes. And foods and waters and communication are cut-off by authority since the beginning of violence. So, it is all about we have not escalated how making them end. Historically, such well planned ethnic-cleansing pogroms were took place against Rohingya in 1942, 1949, 167/68, 1978 and later of 1991. This time it’s well organized that Rakhine people with the supports of the government armed forces are openly carrying out. While international media are unable to reach into the areas where violences are carried out by terrorist Rakhines jointly with security forces, the local Burmese news groups are prepared to take video shooting of the dead bodies of Rohingyans by dressing-up with yellow-robes of monk, putting guns on captive Rohingyans and misinforming to the world. Including Yangon Press International, U.S. based VOA news agency and other anti-Rohingya news agencies release fabricated news from the beginning..
My sister and mother plus relatives and friends are also gone into missing. My colleagues based in Yangon are reporting to politicians including NLD members, student leaders and high-ranking authorities. But there is no one can interfere.. Therefore, there are urgently in need of intervention by intl communities, world leaders and Rohingya people living in foreign.

( Causalities are yet to be escalated from these regions due to no communication available.)
The beginning of mass killings by Rakhines:
And the account should be made on that Rohingya people are not allowed to enter or cross into Rakhine villages while Rakhine people freely can.
Therefore, it’s understandable about a Rakhine girl (Ma Thida Thwey ) who was killed in her own Rakhine village of Tha-bray-chaung ward of Kyauknimaw village on 28 May, is not related to Rohingya. It is just an excuse to instigate to cleans Rohingya people. A group of Rakhine members of “Wnathanu Rakheta Association” association distributed leaflets of blaming muslim, in the early morning in Taungup township on 3 June 2012.
Eight Muslim pilgrims from central Burma and a helper and wife from Tandwe were killed by a group of mob attacked by Rakhine terrorist gang in Taungup on 3 June 2012…
The mass killing of 10 Muslims by 300 Rakhine in Taungkup occurred on the 3rd of June, was one of the shock wave of Rakhine people’ undesirable minds. For Rakhine people, it was a part of exercise of muslim-free-zones defined from year 1983 that consists Gwa, Taungup, Tandwe and Ponnagyuan townships. There were several hundreds of Rohingyans were killed in similar way in these regions and such crime will be carried on until the government implements such draconian act.
International media are unable to reach into the areas where racial violences are carried out by terrorist Rakhines jointly with security forces. And the account should be made on that Rohingya people are not allowed to enter or cross into Rakhine villages while Rakhine people freely can. Therefore, it’s understandable about a Rakhine girl (Ma Thida Thwey ) who was killed in Rakhine village of Tha-bray-chaung ward of Kyauknimaw village on 28 May, is not related to Rohingya. It is just an excuse to instigate to cleans Rohingya people.
It’s learnt from the beginning that despite Rohingyan villagers are confined within their villages under Curfew order, security forces are shooting at Rohingya villagers with cool blood and Rakhine people are still allowed to attack Rohingyans and to fire houses, to loot goods and cash in the present of security forces. Security forces drove away Rohingyan residents by shotting fires into the houses and letting follower Rakhines to torch fire. Again those came out from homes were brutally beaten including some women faced sexually abuses and those fleeings were shot fires.
The mass killing of 10 Muslims in Taungup, sparked to this stage of violence between Rakhine and Rohingya. While authority has not yet taken action against those terror Rakhine people plus other Rakhine people those firstly staged violence against Rohingya in Sittwe on the 4th of June.
Rohingya people occasionally face intolerable violences are because of Arakanese Rohingya Muslims are strucked from citizenship right under 1982 new citizenship law affected on the changes of Rakhine state from Arakan state in 1974.
International communities including the world leaders need to enhance the Burmese government to urgently halt on going brutal attacks against defenceless unarmed Rohingya, to take action against those committed crimes and to restore the rights of native Rohingya people including their citizenship right.
Bangladesh turns away Muslims fleeing Myanmar (8 boats- more than 300 Rohingyans on 11 June)

They confirmed that they were drowning by navy forces.)
