Army seizes a truck with dead body near Molake ward of Akyab

Akyab, Arakan State: A truck with a Rakhine dead body was seized by
patrol army personnel nearby Akyab University main campus adjacent to
Molake Ward on September 29, in the morning, a trader from Akyab said
on condition of anonymity.


“On
suspicion, the patrol army personnel stop the truck while it was
going to nearby Muslim village, searched the truck and found a dead
body of a Rakhine. The army brought the truck to their camp with the
people where they were detained. The dead body was handed over to the
relatives or not, it is unknown.”

The dead body was
brought to the Akyab university main campus nearby Rohingya village,
Amla Para, Mowlake Para to throw it in the compound of university in
the intention of that the Rakine was killed by Muslim Rohingyas, to
mention it was threw by Rohingyas. By accusing the Muslim Rohingya
villagers, they want to attack again the Rohingya villages—Mowlake,
Handi Hola, Amla Para, and Hoshai Para —-like September 28
(Friday), event in Akyab. The Rakhine villagers and leaders of Akyab
are not satisfying to that of Friday attempt to kill Rohingya
villagers of Aung Mingala Quarter, Hoshai Para,and  Mowlake
Para, he more added.

As a result, the
Rakhine mobs will try to attack the remaining Rohingya villages in
Akyab town. So, the lives of the Rohingya villagers are not safe.
Rhingya villagers also do not trust on Burmese security forces such
as— police, Hluntin, army though the army sometimes gave protection
to the Rohingya people.

The similar case
was recently happen in Maungdaw south. A Natala villager was dead at
Mawra Waddi village of Maungdaw south and the Rakhine villagers tried
to throw it nearby Rohingya village. But, Rohingya villagers have
foiled the event in time. As a result, there was no untoward incident
was happened.

Besides, in Akyab,
on June, a Rakhine was arrested by Rohingya villagers and handed over
to Myoma police station because of excessive collecting text from
Rohingya shopkeepers. But, Rakhine mobs at Akyab accused the Rohingya
villagers that the arrestee was killed by Rohingyas. Giving the
reason, the Rakhine mobs tried to attack the Rohingya villagers, a
village elder from Nazir Para said.

In addition, the
dead body of Ms Thida Htwee was thrown to a nearby Muslim village at
Kyauknimaw and accused the three Muslin youths including Thet Thet.
They were accused that they had killed the Ms Thida Htwee after rape.
But, according to the report of doctor, she was not raped. Really,
the Rakhine leaders created the incident, and killed ten innocent
Muslims in Taungupe on June 3 and continued so called sectarian
violence in Arakan state, said a politician from Akyab.

As a result, the
Rakhine community especially- RNDP, ALP, ALD members and other
extremist Rakhines –  will create problems between two
communities in any time to kill the Rohingya community. So there is
no safety of Rohingya Muslims. Therefore, it is needed international
security force immediately to protect Rohingyas, said a local leader
from Maungdaw.
