Our country has been unfairly accused of violating the human rights of so-called Rohingya Muslims and forcing them Bengali-Muslim illegals to flee by dangerous boat trips to Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Following is VOICE Journal’s interview with Yakhine State (Arakan) Chief Minister U Maung maung Ohn on those matters.
Voice: In international media most of the boat Muslims are being described as the Muslims from our Yakhine State. Do you have anything to say about those accusations?
Population explosion among 200 million Bangladeshi Muslims in sinking Bangladesh is constantly sending their poor souls out. But instead of blaming on people traffickers in Bangladesh the international media and some countries are falsely claiming that those are the Bengali-Muslim illegals fleeing the so-called slow-genocide supposedly occurring in our Yakhine State.
So far no one absolutely knows who those boat Muslims really are from. What we believe is there are only a few from our Yakhine Stae as the majority are from Bangladesh. I have a solid evidence for that fact. Just yesterday at about 3:30 PM May-21 our Navy caught two boat loads of Muslims in our territorial waters of Yakhine coast. Altogether 208 men of ages between 20 and 30 including the crew of 17 and two people traffickers.
Our Navy brought them back to Ah-ngu-maw and we sent them all to Ah-le-than-gyaw. At today about mid day they are in temporary detention camps. All of them are malnourished or starving Bangladeshis. None are from Yakhine. We even let UN and INGOs access to them and care for them.
Voice: So, in your opinion, why are those Boat Bangladeshis claiming once they landed on a foreign land that they were so-called Rohingyas from our Yakhine State?
Also the fact that the UNHCR in Malaysia has been automatically issuing the official refugee cards to any Muslim (Rohingya) claiming from our country is basically encouraging the Bangladeshis to lie to them. You must already know the fact that those so-called Rohingyas and Bangladeshis are the same people and it is absolutely impossible to separate so-called Rohingyas from the Bangladeshis. They look the same, speak same language, and practice same fundamentalist Islam.
That recently invented racial-term Rohingya also is relentlessly pushed by Bangladeshis and some enterprising Muslims outside of our country despite the rejections by the IDPs themselves here in the Bengali-Muslim refugee camps inside our State.
Voice: So you are demanding those boat-Muslims claiming to be from our country to prove with real evidence that they really are the Muslims from here? If they can prove it will you accept them back here?
Voice: Do you have any plan implemented so far that Muslim illegals cannot enter Yakhine state and also the Muslim IDPs here cannot leave the camps?
One thing I can guarantee is that all the Bengali-Muslim IDPs here have been given full IDP rights through UN agencies and other INGOs. But we cannot accept them as that invented race Rohingya as they are always Bengali-Muslims from Bangladesh. Because of UN and INGOs heir camps are better than some of our local Yakhine villages. We still have so many Buddhist villages without proper toilets and main water supply.
(One) ASEAN with a population of 630 million is becoming a respectable force in economic and politic affairs of the wider ASIA and both UN and US do not want see a united ASEAN and igniting a racial and religious dis-harmony among ASEA nations is the strategy US is pursuing right now.
(Two) Arakan border land is the hotly contested economic zone between India and China as the China’s Indian Ocean Access which will be blocked by any means by both US and UN.
(Three) US is arming and financing RSO on the Burma-Bangladesh border through OIC to create a serious crisis like in Indonesia’s East Timor. And UN is patiently waiting to go in and run Arakan like they did in East Timor once US and OIC achieve their aim of Islamizing Arakan.
(Four) Clandestine sources from CIA have been paying nearly ten million baht each trip to fishing boat owners from Thailand to ship desperate Bangladeshis as Boat-Muslims from Burma to southern Thailand and then to Malaysia.
