We strongly condemn indiscriminate shootings and killings of Rohingya Muslims in communal outbreak in Maung Daw Township, Myanmar

We severely condemn the indiscriminate shootings and killings of 14 Rohingya Muslims and injuring many others in a communal riot on 8th June 2012 in Maung Daw Township, north of the Arakan State, Myanmar.

According to several reliable information and many tele-conversations, the riot apparently broke out due to the instigated Rakhine Buddhists’ attacks on some Rohingya Muslims while they were returning upon performing Friday congregational prayer at the Monchi Juma’a Prayer Mosque on 8th June 2012, wherein the local police personnel – religious compatriots with the Rakhines –indiscriminately shot on the Muslims, killing 14 of them and seriously injuring dozen others.

Subsequently, a Muslim physician and his wife were arrested by the local police and handed them to the dissatisfied Rakhine Monks who heinously slaughtered them while another group of the violent Rakhine mobs supported by the local police went on rampage later on the same day, whereby at least three villages called Naya Para, Natala Para and Shidda Para were burned down and looted, hundreds of Muslims, including young girls were kidnapped andNaya Para/village Friday Prayer Mosque was torched and destroyed to its ground.

The communal violence quickly spread to southern and northern Maung Daw Township where local Rohingya elders played their elderly roles and peacefully controlled and calmed down the Rohingya masses not to attack on new modal Rakhine villages – new Buddhists-settlements built on the Muslims’ lands-in the Rohingya respective villages in the areas.

According to undeniable sources of our information, the new settlers of the modal villages vide supra were already removed by the instigated Rakhine groups to the unknown safe locations immediately upon the incident in San Dwe, wherein 10 Muslims were killed by the Rakhine Buddhists on 3rd June 2012 in retaliation of killing of a Rakhine woman, allegedly by the three Muslim men in Last May this year.

In such a situation, the report on the burning down of 14 Rakhine modal villages and killings of four Rakhine Buddhists in the areas, allegedly by the Muslims have to be further verified by an independent inquiry commission as the Rohingya Muslims have no guts to do so, and they have been living in the areas in a big concentrated camp heavily guarded by despotic border security forces called Na-Sa-Ka and are well aware of retaliation by way of extra-judicial killings, physical tortures and long imprisonments of thousands of Rohingyas in the event the Buddhist and their property are touched by any of them.

Furthermore, we honestly feel to refute theStar report today at page 36 as headline, “Myanmar villagers flee sectarian clashes” and the whole contents therein are completely inaccurate and untrue as the Rohingyas are not in a position to attack any local Rakhine Buddhists as the Rohingya Muslims have no basic liberty in Myanmar and they always subject to persecution, oppression and suppression not only under the government but also under the local Rakhine Buddhists, even they have no right to make police report if they are attacked by any Rakhine Buddhists, and therefore, the of this nature should not have been reported at the local newspaper like theStar as it might provoke tension between the Rohingya and Rakhine refugees here in Malaysia. Moreover, the sources of information-Myanmar Government mouthpieces-have been proven as unreliable sources in the past.

Since the arrivals of thousands of military personnel in Maung Daw Township and imposing indefinite curfew there, the situation has been seemed under controlled and calmed starting early Saturday. However, the Rohingya Muslims worry and fear that they will be made scapegoats and punished for the wrong of the Rakhine Buddhists as it had been proven so in the past there in Arakan State.

Therefore, we earnestly appeal to the government of Myanmar to launch a fair and just inquiry into the incidents and take stern actions against those who involved in the incidents either directly or indirectly irrespective of their public and government positions and regardless their race and religion.
