Myanmar Government today released first-hand stories of the kin of those Hindus whose bodies were found in the mass graves in the conflicted Rakhine state. The Hindus were allegedly killed by extremist terrorists from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA). 28 bodies were discovered on Sunday and 17 more bodies were discovered on Monday.
The Director General, State Counsellor Office, Myanmar today shared the stories of brutality of Rohingya terrorists on Hindus on social media:

In a Facebook post, the Myanmar Government shared interviews of Hindu survivors:
“On the day when the terrorist attacks happened, terrorists came to Khamaungseik to abduct Hindus, in which my brother was one of the victims. All were inhumanely killed on the way,
with eight Hindu women and children abducted to Bangladesh. Women were raped. I had a contact with those women. I did not yet know whether my brother’s wife and children have not been accounted and have been killed. We heard most of them killed by terrorists.”

Another survivor said the throats were slit by the terrorists.
“Some were found to have been decapitated and limbs amputated. We want to find our daughter as soon as possible. I will not stop looking for my daughter even if she is found dead and it is only her skeleton. I pray for my daughter not to experience such a worse situation. Terrorists not only killed Hindus, including the cruel killing of children, but also raped the women.”
-Arshee Kumar, 4 ward, Maungtaw
One woman survivor lost her entire family to the massacre.
“My husband’s two brothers were among the dead bodies dug up. Their names are Bisnia and Han Montie. Their wives and children were also killed. A mother and her two children and another mother and her three children have not been accounted for. We overheard that one was abducted to Bangladesh.”
-Salmon Barlar, Kyeinchaung Village
Another woman could recognise her sister only though the bangles she wore whereas a woman could identify her husband and children from their clothes. Recalling the horror, she said the limbs were also amputated and legs were completely cut. “Fifteen of my relatives have not yet been found. Terrorists killed our Hindus in Khamaungseik,” said Orno Barlar, who survived since she was in another village to attend an event.
Myanmar government recently have highlighted how Rohingya terrorists have been guilty of human rights violation and for troubles in the Rakhine region, which has forced thousands to flee the country over years.
