Mass graves’ for Myanmar’s Rohingya

Exclusive report from Rakhine state exposes an entire region divided by religious and racial discrimination.

“May Day, May Day, May Day” SOS message to save the 7000 Muslims lives and properties from Sittwe, Rakhine

August 9, 2012

May Day, May Day, May Day”

Very urgent SOS message to save the 7000 Muslims lives and properties from Sittwe, Rakhine.

Just a few moments ago we got the urgent message from Sittwe.
The last Muslim quarter in Sittwe, Aung Mingalar is marked, targeted and surrounded to be destroyed tonight.

According to the informer, Rakhine Government has already given the approval for that raid. Cries and chaotic voices were heard during the phone conversation.

In the last Muslim settlement of Aung Mingalar, 7000 strong Muslims came out from their houses and are appealing to the Myanmar Military, Rakhine Government and Rakhine Buddhist people who surrounded them to allow them to transfer out peacefully. They pleaded that they would voluntarily transfer to any place the mob wants so that there would be no human casualties.

According to the person on the phone, even if they all are murdered, they wish the world to know that Myanmar Military is leading the massacre. He nervously ask us to publish this before the massacre starts.

Part One of Two

For Buddhists and Muslims who live and co-exist in Burma, the recent outbreak of sectarian violence in Arakan State is nothing new. The profound fear that many feel, however, is that this won’t be the last time that these two communities are torn apart by strife.
