The Rohingya community who were happy while they heard the announcement Burma president ordered which dissolved Nasaka . But when they saw the warships anchored in three places, the happiness disappeared from them. They become fear after seeing warships, said a school teacher from Maungdaw.
“What plan of government towards us is still unclear, but we are seeing reinforcement in our place. The government is still not declared the reason of Burma border security force (Nasaka) dissolution. There is some rumors of Rohingya youths taking military training inside Arakan which was deny by Arakan state government and former Nasaka director. Now, the reinforcement is proofed the government is taking serious on these rumors.”
The Rohingya community are suffering human rights violation more and more since long and they are not defended for their own safety, may now they will hold arms to protect their lives and rights. But, it is not cleared, the Rohingya youths really getting military training for their safety and to protect their lives. It is rights for us, to hold the arms to protect our community, said a politician from Maungdaw.
