A mosque and Madrasa (religious school) of Rohingya Muslims at ChutTaPyin village tract in Maungdaw north were torched to ashes by Myanmar government backed Rakhine extremists on 11 November 2017 at around 9.30 pm.
According to our correspondent report, a gang of Rakhine terrorists on motorbike went to the mosque at around 9.30 pm and set a devastating fire to the Madrasa (religious school) and the mosque which were entirely burnt down.
The Rohingya residents tried to put out the fire but they were prevented by members of Border Guard Police from doing so, said a resident from the village.
Myanmar government has been repeatedly denying that the Rohingyas are fleeing to Bangladesh willingly and the armed forces of Myanmar are not persecuting or oppressing any Rohingya.
But there are lots of evidences that the Myanmar armed forces along with Rakhine extremists have still been conducting arson attack and atrocities against Rohingya Muslims in Northern Arakan while the Muslims are not allowed to harvest their paddy causing people suffer from starvation.
The Rohingyas are completely banned from their movement village to village for which they are not able to earn their livelihood resulting people suffer from starvation and facing various kinds of difficulties to survive there.
Amid the international condemnation and pressure on Myanmar government to end the violence of Myanmar armed forces conducting against the Rohingya Muslims, the arson attack and different kinds of systematic persecutions on the Muslims have still been continued by Myanmar forces.
The Rohingya influx into Bangladesh from northern Arakan has been continuing since the armed forces and the Rakhine extremists have been conducting arson attack and sorts of oppressions against the Rohingya minority.
Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya people are still crossing into Bangladesh on bamboo rafts taking high risk of life on every day basis since the atrocities and forms of systematic persecutions have been carried out against the Rohingya Muslims ignoring the international calls and condemnation.
International community should take alternative measures against the Myanmar so-called democratic government that is ignoring the calls and pressure of United Nation and the countries concerned, said a Rohingya activist.
