    Security forces, Nasaka (Burma’s border security force), Police, Hluntin (paramilitary), Sarapa (Military Intelligence) and Army arrest 8-10 and kill 2-3 Rohingya daily in Arakan dai. The Rohingya Muslim is the most persecuted ethnic minority in the world. Mostly Rohingyas are taking shelter in Bangladesh because of persecution, harassment and denial of citizenships of Rohingyas by the Burmese government. Now, the Bangladesh authorities are arresting the Rohingyas from the local areas of Cox’s Bazar and detaining in the police station. There are also Rakhine ( Mogh) entered to Bangladesh, living as citizen of Bangladesh and then go back to Myanmar where they have also citizenship, Some Rakhine (Mogh) also obtain urban refugee in Bangladesh. The Rakhine (Mogh) are getting refugee status after entering Bangladesh. Why Bangladesh are not checking those Rakhines in Cox’s Bazar, Harban , Hill tract even in capital Dhaka and need to check they are really the minority or not? Many Rohingyas with boats were missing in the Bay of Bengal while Rohingyas were pushed back to Burma. Rohingyas are Muslim; they come to Bangladesh from Burma as they were persecuted as raping, killings, mass arrest, torturing, extortion money, harassment, looting, and their set on fire into ashes by the police, Hluntin, Nasaka, army jointly with Rakhine terrorists. Rohingya community becomes like a ball, kicked by Burma and then kicked by Bangladesh across the Naff River.
