Myanmar Bulldozes Rohingya Villages to Clear Evidence of Army’s Crimes

Alwaght- The Myanmarese regime has allowed extremist Buddhist settlers to occupy north of Rakhine State, which used to be dominated by minority Rohingya Muslims before they were driven out or killed in a campaign of state-sponsored genocide.

The Buddhists from the south of Rakhine state are being transferred to the state’s north, where Rohingya villages have already been torched or bulldozed to the ground.

Buddhist flags are now hung on bamboo poles at the entrance to villages.

The Myanmarese military laid siege to northern Rakhine, where the Rohingya were concentrated, in late 2016. Together with Buddhist mobs, soldiers began killing, raping, and torturing the Muslims in what has been described by rights groups and the United Nation as “ethnic cleansing” and possible “genocide.” That campaign intensified in August last year.

Thousands of Muslims are believed to have been killed, some execution-style.

Out of the original 1.1 million Rohingya Muslims who lived in Rakhine’s north, some 700,000 fled to neighboring Bangladesh. Some 300,000 had already been driven out since the 1970s.

Satellite imagery then showed that the Myanmarese regime was bulldozing what had been left of the villages, many of which had already been torched.

The regime is now upending the demography of the once Majority-Muslim area in a pattern with echoes of “the Israeli settler project in the West Bank,” according to Francis Wade, author of “Myanmar’s Enemy Within: Buddhist Violence and the Making of the Muslim ‘Other.’”

The military has been engineering the social landscape of northern Rakhine State so as to dilute the Rohingya population since the early 1990s,” said Wade. “I’d expect to see more Buddhists settle there over the coming years. And then we’ll forget what the area once was, and that process of erasure will be complete.”

On Monday, an international rights organization revealed that Myanmar’s military forces were also building army bases in locations where Rohingya Muslims used to live.
