Rohingya Muslims Leave Mass Graves in Myanmar

While the #FAKENEWS of the “Rohingya Muslim” crisis the reality is the Rohingya Muslim have been on a murderous rampage in the region.

Bodies of 45 Hindus have been discovered in three mass graves in the Myanmar’s conflict-torn northern Rakhine state, the officials said blaming Muslim insurgents for the killings.

Rakhine state has been in a turmoil since August 25 after Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks on police posts.

Border Guard Police Maj. Zayar Nyein told Associated Press that two of the graves, that were found on Monday, contained bodies of 20 females and eight males.

The government’s Information Committee said on its Facebook page that all eight males were boys, including six who were under 10 years old. It said another mass grave was discovered 200 meters away on Monday that contained the bodies of 17 more Hindu villagers.

Police have blamed the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army insurgent group or ARSA.

The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army also known by its former name Harakah al-Yaqin (meaning Faith Movement in English), is a Rohingya insurgent group active in northern Rakhine State, Myanmar. According to a December 2016 report by the International Crisis Group, it is led by Ata Ullah, a Rohingya man who was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and grew up in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Other members of its leadership include a committee of Rohingya émigrés in Saudi Arabia.

According to the lead interrogator of ARSA suspects jailed in Sittwe, Police Captain Yan Naing Latt, the group’s goal is to create a “democratic Muslim state for the Rohingya” in Myanmar. Although there is no firm evidence linking the ARSA to foreign Islamist groups, the Burmese government suspects that the group is involved with and subsidized by foreign Islamists. The Burmese government has also accused the ARSA of murdering 34 to 44 civilians and kidnapping 22 others in reprisal attacks against those the ARSA have perceived as government collaborators.
