Yes. Given the history and the record, we are the only major ethnic group in Burma that is not taking up arms or guns in fighting against the government. That's absolutely true—it's proven. We are the only ones. All the the other groups—Mon, Kachin, Shan, Chin, Rakhine—have armed people fighting against the government.
This is absolutely made up to me. I cannot prove it, and they also cannot prove they are Rohingya. Let's say, these people are all of a sudden organized, and there are others who are unorganized, who got mad because we've been suppressed for so many years, and retaliated. Why is there no next time? There is not another time, a third time, a fourth time, or a continuation after that.
Hundreds of thousands of women were raped in public . They cordoned off the village. They brought out everybody. They took off all their clothing and made them pray naked. They raped the womenfolk in front of their husbands, sons, daughters; and they would rape a daughter in front of the father. This is known to the UNHCR, the human rights commission; Human Rights Watch; and Amnesty International. I have family members who were raped and killed—my sister.
Now, why is there no protection? Okay, they are killing there. Let's go and protect them. We will die there. Why is there no such thing? They disappear for about a month and a half or so—for 20 days, 12 or 15 days—and when the issue is a little harder, when the international community is talking, all of a sudden there is an interview with the Dhaka Tribune. They say, “Okay, this happened, that happened,” and things go quiet again. About 15 days later there is another interview by the Bangkok Post or somebody else. This is a systematic plan, the handiwork of the Burmese government. I have proof.
Unfortunately, I have a picture that the Burmese government posted on their website saying that Bengali-language training was held on January 9, 2017, at the Sittwe prison, in the capital of the Rakhine state.
If they don't like us, and they don't even want to hear our name, why are they training some of their own people to speak our language if they do not have a hidden agenda?
