Each time we pass this stretch near Bangladesh’s border with #Myanmar, my #Rohingya translator, who fled his village after a military crackdown in Myanmar two years ago, points towards the fields across the #border, saying: “That’s #Maungdaw”. I ask him if he’d like to return after all the violence he saw there, and he says “Oh!” as if he can’t put into words just how much he’d like to go back home - even though he saw his house being torched before he fled to #Bangladesh.

Spending several days at the #refugee camps and hearing numerous stories like his can normalise things, but every once in a while I’m struck by the extraordinary plight of thousands of stateless refugees like him living here in squalid shelters with no place to call home.

Among the many things my translator says he misses about home are fresh fruits and vegetables. We pass by a refugee selling mangoes – the last of the season – and he makes a face: “You don’t get fresh fruits and vegetables here. They are stored for many days. In #Burma, we ate fresh vegetables straight from our farms.”

29/4/2018: #Myanmar plays 'Terrorist Ploy' as distraction from #Genocide during #UNSC visits to #Bangladesh & #Arakan State.

Myanmar sources claim 3 apparently #Bengali (Myanmar's term 4 #Rohingya) terrorists were caught with weapons amid jungles in N. #Maungdaw today.

One last shot from a rooftop in seemingly-peaceful #Maungdaw on the evening of August 24, 2017: just one day before the #RohingyaCrisis erupted. Later that night, we heard distant gunfire; but little did we know we were in the epicenter of soon-to-be mass atrocities. #Rohingya #Genocide #Myanmar #Burma

ZULME DUR DE...
Sudan sebepleri bahane ederek(AMA) kelimesini fütursuzca kullanarak haksızlığa karşı susmak, yüreği olmayan insanların işidir...görmezden gelmek,zulmü sıradanlaştırmak ,fenalığı duymamış gibi yapmak, ahlaksızlığı eleştirmemek, haddi aşan zalimlere dur diyememek, yanlışları konuşmamak tarafını belli etmemek zayıf karakterli insanların en belirgin özelliğidir..Herşeydende önemlisi hertürlü haksızlığa maruz kalan insanları gördüğünde içi sızlamayan gözü dolmayan ,din kardeşinin derdi ile dertlenmeyen en "YAKINIM" dahi olsa bana göre insan müsveddesidir👍🏻Tavrım bu kadar açık ve seçik Ya sizin kardeşlerim?Şimdi ben bunca şeyi neden yazdım biliyormusunuz?Bu zulumleri gördükçe diyorumki kafir kafirliğini yapıyor tamam da ya müslümanların suskunluğu ne olacak Allah aşkına ....avazım çıktığınca bağırasım var ama nafile 😔Vah halimize yazık ki yazık bize 😔Rabbim affetsin bizleri inşaAllah ..@yusufyuzluler#yusufyuzluler#nephew #dua

The Rakhine traditional water festival, which will be celebrated for three days from 17 to 19 April, kicked off yesterday.
A ceremony to open the Rakhine traditional water festival at the central pandal in Maungtaw was held at Myoma (east) Ward in Maungtaw Town.
At the event, Maungtaw District Management Committee Chairman Deputy Commissioner U Ye Htut delivered the New Year’s greetings. Western Command Commander Brigadier General Soe Tint Naing, No (15) Mobile Operation Command Brigadier General Khin Maung Soe, Police Brigadier General Myint Toe, Maungtaw District Management Committee Chairman Deputy Commissioner U Ye Htut, Township Management Committee Chairman U Myint Khaing, a Rakhine State Hluttaw representative and a town elder then cut the ceremonial ribbon to open the central pandal.
Later, departmental officials and a few invited foreigners from Maungtaw-based international non-governmental organisations sprinkled with scented water, while Rakhine traditional dancers entertained with classical Thingyan songs and dances. The Rakhine traditional water festival is being celebrated for nearly 80 years now. A music band is included this year, with entertainment being provided by well-known performers and popular Rakhine singers.

Raised in the shadow of genocide: A young Rohingya’s story

At midnight on August 25, 2017, I was woken by the noise of intense gunfire. I had no idea where it was coming from or what was happening. I was in my bed in #Maungdaw Township, in Myanmar’s #RakhineState. The shooting continued through the night and into the morning. Then the town fell silent.
The day was empty apart from the clatter of distant #gunfire. There was no one outside. The sound of #children playing was gone.

But soon the silence was replaced by the rumble of security force vehicles moving in. I saw troops enter and take up positions in every corner of the town. Then I heard gunfire coming from many directions. I could see smoke and fire from neighboring villages as they were torched. Later we found out that many people were burned alive in their homes.

Rohingyas need protected homeland in Northern Arakan
Only two generations ago the #Rohingya people of Northern Arakan, or the #RakhineState of #Myanmar, had a homeland.
The homeland of Rohingya people was officially referred to as the Mayu Frontier region, and was a separate administrative district made up of the two predominantly Rohingya, but not segregated, towns of #MaungDaw and #Buthidaung, and parts of Rathaey Daung. Owing to the specific request of the #RohingyaCommunity leaders and parliamentary representatives, who were worried about being placed under the regional control of Akyab or Sittwe-based Rakhine nationalists who clamoured for an autonomous statehood for #Rakhine, the Burmese defence ministry in #Rangoon established Mayu District in the late 1950’s as a distinct administrative region and placed it under the ministry’s Border Affairs Division. The first founding chief administrator of this #homeland for #Rohingyas was the young Lt Col Colonel Tin Oo, now 95-years-old vice chair of the ruling National League for #Democracy.

#Rohingya #people who fled from their towns after the #violence in the #state of #Rakhine, are seen behind a fence on the border line outside #Maungdaw, #Myanmar #March 31, 2018.

Burmese forces once again raided a village in #Maungdaw, where they abused &tortured #Rohingya inhumanly.Raiding villages became a common crime in the soil of #Arakan where Rohingyas are harassed, abused, arrested, raped & killed.
