BurmaTimes – Ibrahim Shah- Around twelve o’clock at midday on 29th September, a motorcycle owned by one Buddhist youth Maung Naing Oo was placed in front of a shop owned by the Chairman of Kaman Muslim party in Thandwe. The Buddhist youths started to argue harshly when the shopkeeper requested them to remove and place the vehicle some ahead from the shop since the vehicle closed the entrance of the shop.

On the double, the Buddhist youth diffused the entire town that the Kaman Muslim Party Chairman insulted Buddhism. The main reason of diffusion of such aggressive news is because the extremists of RNDP and the 969 Campaign have been seeking chances to attack the Kaman Muslims since long time.

While about 200 extremists are attempting to assault surrounded the house of U Kyaw Zan Hla, the police came and the mob was segregated and arrested him. Amid the investigation in custody, more than 80 extremists surrounded the custody and demanded the police to hand over UKyaw Zan Hla to them.U Kyaw Zan Hla was bailed after thorough investigation in custody.

When the extremist came to know about the release of U Kyaw Zan Hla, 20 disguised Karate-Experts are sent to enclose the police camp. Then, the police and the disguised Karate-Experts discussed mutually.

Later, the extremists mobbed in Ngha Kyaw Daung quarter and a house owned by Kaman Muslim was burnt down to ashes.

It is miserable that no security forces made any obstruction against the assault. Then, the mob wishfully vandalized some Kaman houses throwing stones. At night, one Muslim oil shop was set on fire and vandalized more Kaman Muslim houses in Bodegung quarter as well.

The armed forces are deployed in Thandwe and Muslims are only prevented from coming out of houses at streets. The security forces did not prevent nor arrest the 969 Campaign leader Tun Than Kyaw who is moving by car to and fro in the town.

More extremists gather in monasteries who are coming up from rural sides and getting preparation to further assault Muslims.
