Z to Z or Dr. Maung Zarni’s open letter to Ko Zargana

A question for အက်ဥ္းသားေရးရာေကာ္မတီေဟာင္းတြင္ တာဝန္ယူခဲ့ဖူးသည့္ ႏိုင္က်ဥ္းေဟာင္းဦးဇာဂနာ

Dear Esteemed Saya U Zarganar Khin Bya,

If your new best friend Super-Minister and Thein Sein handler Soe Thein (US-trained ex-Admiral) does not think Rohingya Dr Tun Aung is ‘political prisoner’, does that make him a criminal or terrorist or something lesser who gets released because of ‘foreign interventions’ – as you stated clearly here?

What really was Dr Tun Aung’s crimes for which the regime locked him up, other than that he was a prominent Rohingya leader who had some sway with his own people?

If ethnicity is a political and social construct – as it is – then hundreds of Rohingya locked up in Rakhine state jails and in semi-concentration camps – known as IDP camps – would you call for their release – in addition to SSA and other armed fighters and non-violence activists?

‘‘ဒီလူ (ေဒါက္တာထြန္း ေအာင္) ကို အရင္ကတည္းက ကြၽန္ေတာ္တို႔ ေကာ္မတီထဲက ဝန္ႀကီး ဦးစိုးသိန္းတို႔ကအစ ႏိုင္ က်ဥ္းလို႔လက္မခံခဲ့ၾကဘူး။ ခုက် ေတာ့ အရင္ေကာ္မတီလည္းမရွိ ေတာ့ဘူး။ အသစ္ျပန္ဖြဲ႕တဲ့ ေကာ္ မတီကလည္း အသက္ဝင္တာ မေတြ႕ေသးေတာ့ ၾကည့္ရတာ ႏိုင္ငံတကာနဲ႔ကုလသမဂၢကေပး တဲ့ဖိအားကို သမၼတက သူ႔သေဘာနဲ႔သူ နည္းနည္းသက္သာရာရ ေအာင္ လႊတ္တယ္လို႔ပဲ ျမင္ပါ တယ္။ ကြၽန္ေတာ္တို႔ဆီ ကုလ၊ ကန္လက္ေထာက္ဝန္ႀကီး ဘယ္ သူလာလာ ဒီလူအေၾကာင္းကိုပဲ ေျပာတယ္။ သူတစ္ေယာက္ တည္း ေထာင္ထဲမွာရွိတာမဟုတ္ ပါဘူး။ အခု သာယာဝတီေထာင္ ထဲမွာ ရွမ္းျပည္ SSA ကေတာင္း ထားတဲ့ သူေတြကို မလႊတ္ေပး ေသးဘူး။ ဒါေပမဲ့ အျပင္ကလာ တဲ့လူတိုင္း ဦးထြန္းေအာင္ အေၾကာင္းပဲေမးၾကတယ္’’ဟု ယခင္ႏိုင္ငံေရး အက်ဥ္းသားေရးရာေကာ္မတီေဟာင္းတြင္ တာဝန္ယူခဲ့ဖူးသည့္ ႏိုင္က်ဥ္းေဟာင္းဦးဇာဂနာကေျပာသည္။

Finally, I would like to ask why did you call for the release of ex-‘military intelligence’ – state-authorized torturers, interrogators and executioners – while you have been unable to bring yourself to telling the truth about the persecution of the Rohingya, including hundred of Rohingya who are languishing in jails – as a matter of government policy.
