Thandwe, Arakan – A Kaman Muslim house in Thandwe Township of Arakan State has been burned by Rakhine extremists this evening. The situation in Thandwe has been extremely tense since yesterday afternoon. 

At that time, a motorcycle taxi was placed in front of the shop of U Kyaw Zan Hla, who is a Kaman Muslim in Thandwe. The owner of the shop asked the owner of the motorcycle to remove the vehicle from where it was, as it was reserved for loading and unloading goods. The motorcycle had a 969 sticker on it. The motorcycle owner didn’t agree to move his vehicle from the place and started abusing the shop owner. Then he propagated in the town that the shop owner insulted 969. As the 969 group has been propagating to attack local Muslims since a long time, yesterday’s propaganda became a tool to attack local Muslims.

The 969 group members gathered in front of U Kyaw Zan Hla’s house in the late afternoon and tried to attack the house. But the authorities came and arrested U Kyaw Zan Hla and the crowd disappeared. Later the crowd appeared in front of police station and asked the police to handover U Kyaw Zan Hla. The extremist group dispersed from there in the late evening. The authorities released U Kyaw Zan Hla at 9 pm after signing the bond. 

The 969 group came to know the release of U Kyaw Zan Hla this morning and they gathered again in front of the house and started throwing stones into houses of U Kyaw Zan Hla and others. The authorities didn’t bother to stop them. Today at 7:30 pm, the 969 started burning a house of U Hla Myint which is located at Quarter 3, the corner of Gandama and Tarwatain Tha Streets. According to locals, the house was burnt to ashes. Although the authority in the town have been warning with loud speakers that they will arrest anyone out past curfew time, they didn’t stop the Rakhine extremists who are burning the houses. The extremists are organizing to attack the Mosque as well but so far have been unable to do so.
