Relating to current crisis in Arakan, there is an important thing to well aware about the account of Burmese officials and Burmese news. For an example, about the first report of Cyclone Nargis during 2008 was 7 persons dead and a few houses damaged. But reality later found that more than 160,000 people dead over million people displaced for years. So, where are their stories?

Clarification: This is not fighting each other but well planned genocide by Rakhines corporately with armed forces. If it is fighting each other then why the authority imposed Curfew, restored Order only for Rohingya? They allowed Rakhines coming into Rohingya villages, torching firing houses, brutally beatings and slaughterings plus sexual abuses, looting.

The government distribute aid for those terrors’ families but cutting off waters, electric, foods in Rohingya villages since beginning.

More than thousand of Rohingya villagers taken away from both Maungdaw and Sittwe by security forces were gone to unknown.
