The new democratic government of Myanmar which is led by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi could not stop the Rakhine Buddhist dirty politicians from spoiling political situation of Rakhine state, that leading the new government to form the ‘formation of Central Committee on Implementation of Peace, Stability and Development of Rakhine State on 30 May, 2016. The central committee was formed with 27 ministries and several working committees in which some former military brute think- tanks are attached to blemish the interaction of promising scrutiny process.

Ostensibly, though aim and object of the processes are striking and interesting, one of the actions in regard Rohingyas who are needed to be scrutinized by the 1982 citizenship law is totally unjust and backtracking process. 

The then U Thein Sein’s government has cleared that there are no immigrants infiltrated into Rakhine state except Buddhist Rakhine Bangladeshi. But the local Rohingyas have been fleeing steadily from their localities to foreign lands to escape the suppression of ordinary Rakhine people, of the authorities and the Burmese Army. 

Forceful exertion of 1982 citizenship law against Rohingyas is unreasonable and foolish while Rohingyas residents in Rakhine have already become the legitimate citizens of the state in accord the citizenship acts that were existed before 1982 citizenship law. Rohingyas are neither needed to be verified to prove as the citizens of the state nor to be scrutinized repeatedly whether or not they have documents, papers in their hands at this time.

Expression about the process of scrutiny is alarming after thoroughly examining the Ministry of immigration officer’s. The immigration officer explained: “the central government will only issue either the scrutiny cards or naturalized citizenship cards to people after thoroughly examining their relevant papers, documents and others which the people belong in their hand currently now.” The sound is very understandable that there would be clear fighting on Rohingyas people at this time again. 

Due to documents, which Rohingyas people firmly kept in their hands for many years, but during the last two decades of the military rulings particularly in north Rakhine state, all the relevant documents, which were in the hands of Rohingyas people were either being confiscated, looted, and torn apart by the consecutive ferocious military authorities. The military authorities who have purposely intended not to be able Rohingyas IN ANY TIME to show off or prove with documents as the citizens of the state while the concerning authorities may possibly ask to show off the relevant documents again that are not in their hands now, OR the previous authorities have done such the cynical action to extend helping hands for next coming government after government. 

What is the dirty game of the entire Burmese people whether they are military regimes or the regime of prominent noble laureate! Once Rohingyas have had the documents in their hands, then they were taken out again by the military forcefully and then again from where they (Rohingyas) will show the related documents which are not in their hands now. 

Once Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, now state counselor of Myanmar has already agreed and declared that the 1982 citizenship law, which was drafted by the dictator Ne Win, was very excessive and should be fitted in line standard of international outlook. Amid from the international outcry, advice and appeal to revoke the 1982 citizenship law to the respective government of Myanmar, the process and application of 1982 law by this democratic government on Rohingyas people is nothing more than a plain silliness of laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi led democratic government.

There are many Bangladeshi Buddhist Rakhine infiltrators in Rakhine state and they were then resettled in Rohingyas lands and different townships along Rakhine state. How many of illegal Rakhine Bangladeshi were verified under the Myanmar immigration process and made them as naturalized citizens in the course of Rakhine/Myanmar immigration department? If not why?

Rohingyas people along the nation are totally being upset BY today newspaper’s explanation and details about the national scrutiny process on Rohingyas in Rakhine and elsewhere in the nation. Even though, Rohingyas community has been so much impressive over the political carrier of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, right now they have got a question that “whether Daw Suu Kyi is intentionally committing such a crime against Rohingyas people or she has no other way except to be dancing as per the tone of Commander in Chief of Senior General Min Aung Haling?
