The Nasaka asked the victims to pay Kyat 200,000 per family list to be returned, said another villager on condition of anonymity.
How the villagers tolerate the harassments of— Nasaka, police, Hluntin, army, Sarapa and local Rakhine goons—. The authorities are totally destroying the economics of the Rohingya community by imposing state of emergency only for Rohingya community, not for Rakhine community. The authorities encourage the Rakhine community to attack the Rohingya community
World community believes that the recent violence is occurred between Rakhines and Rohingyas, but actually, the violence is created by the present quasi-civilian government to divert the minds of the people for political benefit.
