Myanmar Military, Buddhist Extremists continue setting Rohingya villages on fire

By The Stateless Rohingya

The ethnic cleansing of Rohingya enters into its fourth week with overwhelming international rallies in solidarity with Rohingya, Myanmar military and Buddhist extremists are consistently razing down Rohingya villages in Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung.

Hundreds of Rohingya houses in southern Maungdaw were set on fire at 9 am, September, 14.

Duchiradan (Kilaidaung) village which was also completely burned down during Duchiradan Massacre, was razed to ground along with Du Yong Bin Gyi (Saira fara), Baggona, Taung Pyu Hla We (Dai Booinna) and Ywe Nyo Pyi on Thursday.

Two very famous Rohingya villages – Zammoina and Taung Pyu were also destroyed.

Several mosques of historical importance, religious schools and shops were among the destruction in the fire.

A group of notorious military and Rakhine extremist settlers entered Kilaidong in the morning where they looted before setting the houses on fire. A number of Rohingya civilians from the village were fired rounds of shot by the military injuring and killing many.

More than 173 Rohingya villages were destroyed for which Myanmar government and military blame the Rohingya civilians, claiming that Rohingya are burning their own houses.

The government has hired a group of Hindu in an attempt to mislead the international community as if Rohingya are burning their own houses. The photographic evidence of Hindu failed the attempt.

Since August 25, more than 390,000 Rohingya are expelled from 3 townships and hundreds of thousands remain displaced in Rakhine State.

U.N. Secretary-general Antonio Guterres told the media that more than one third of Rohingya population is now removed from the country, and U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein calls it “the textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.
