THE INN DIN NON-MASSACRE

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED AND WHAT REALLY DIDN’T HAPPEN


by Rick Heizman, Feb 10, 2018

While the one-eyed western mass media, and the ignorant but arrogant regressive leftists have a field
day with the revelation of a situation which appears to be damning to the Buddhists Rakhine and
Burmese, let’s go over what really did and didn’t happen.

First, I will go over the version that I developed in January, 2018, and then I will go through the latest
‘definitive’ version by Reuters, titled: How Myanmar Forces burned, looted, and killed in a remote village.

Inn Din is the name of 5 villages now - they can be called Inn Din east, west, central, north and south.
The Bengali Muslims populate the largest 3, and Buddhists live in 2. The Bengali villages are
significantly bigger than the Buddhist’s villages, and it is estimated that the Bengalis - in August 2017,
before the attacks - comprise 90% of the total Inn Din villagers.

Starting a year and several months ago, after the October 2016 terrorists attacks - by the
Bengali Muslims against ‘infidel’ Burmese Buddhist Security Forces - in which there were dozens of
police and civilian casualties, it had been reported by the local indigenous people of Inn Din that the
neighboring Bengalis had strongly ramped up their harsh treatment of non-Muslims, and also
threatened them with taunts, intimidations, and extreme violence. I visited Inn Din in Jan 2018, and
spoke with, and interviewed Buddhists - who have had great concerns for their safety - and feels like
the ‘world’ does not understand the Islamic Jihad which has them targeted for death.

Example of taunts, translated from videos of Bengali Muslim violence - Bengali language to
English: Cut the necks of all Rakhine - Maug hara kiri (মগ জবাই কর্)
You Rakhine must die, this land is for us Rohingya (,তারা- রাখাইেনদর মেরত /হব, এK ,িরাহLার ,দশ।)
Get out of here now, leave everything you own, because it is ours.
(এখনই /চল যা, ,/তাদর যা যা আে◌ছ সব ,/ফল যা, কারণ এQেলা আেমাদর।)
Now can your Buddha protect you? (এখন ,/তাদর বR/ ,/তাদর রSা কেরত পােরছ?)

Those threats turned real on August 25, 2017 when Buddhist villager U Maung Ni, walking to his
fields, was killed by Muslims. His family was stunned and angry that Muslims would kill a person for
simply being of a different religion. I interviewed his wife, who described the tragic events of that day,
and the following week, and I shared in her tears.

They had been awakened by gunfire, and explosions in the night. The area’s biggest police outpost
was about 1½ miles south of Inn Din - at Gwa Son. It was a cause for concern, but the distance
muffled the sound. The news about that only reached them in the afternoon. After eating lunch at
home with the family Maung Ni went out to see his water buffaloes, where he had taken them to
some good grass in the morning. His route would take him through and out of the village, and then he
would enter some dense forest, and then he would emerge at some grassy fields. Back at home, two
of his sons set out to catch up with their father, and they started walking the same route.

Suddenly they were surrounded by menacing Muslims. One of them quickly called their mother on his
mobile phone, “Mother! We are surrounded by Muslims, and they are crazy and threatening! We don’t
know what to do!” The mother ran out of the house, shouting to some men nearby to follow her. As
they turn a corner there are Muslims all over now, and their way is blocked. Now it is getting very
frightening as Muslims men are just pouring into the Buddhist part of Inn Din. The mother is very
concerned about her sons, and her husband, but now the Muslims are shouting so loudly and acting
so menacing. ‘ALLAHU AKBAR! ALLAHU AKBAR!’ The Muslims were shouting through their mosque
loudspeakers, broadcast messages such as, “we will slash the throats of Myanmar soldiers and this
land is our Islamic State!” The whole village is now running in panic to the big Buddhist monastery
and temple compound, which at least, has big walls around it. The mother and others got behind the
walls, and shortly her sons run in.

But, they did not catch up with their father yet, he had entered the forest already - and he didn’t come
back that day, that night. The whole village had to stay in the monastery compound for a week - even
though many could even see their own homes, to go out of the compound, cross wide open fields,

2
and then enter the dense foliage of the villages pathways was definitely too risky. The mother and
sons knew that he must have been killed, but still, they wanted to look for him, but they couldn’t - the
forest was on the opposite side of the village.

And, now everyone was learning what happened in the early morning of Aug 25 - up and down
Maungdaw dozens of police and army outposts were attacked, dozens of villages were attacked,
there was a war going on, the Muslims were, once again, possessed by their Islamic Jihad agenda -
in which the Mawlawis [Imams] planned, instructed, trained and led the villagers to kill all non-
Muslims, and declare the land an autonomous Islamic State. And, as well, the Mawlawis made it clear
that if you didn’t participate in the attacks and killings then you and your family will be declared un-
Islamic and your heads will be cut off. The Buddhist villagers, all stuck in the monastery compound
also learned that several bridges on the one road to Inn Din had been blown up. In the absolute
chaos during the next week, it was not known when available army troops could arrive to protect and
evacuate the Buddhists. Supplies of rice and food were dwindling without supplies being able to
reach them. The Buddhist still could not go back to their nearby homes - but they could see that the
Muslims were looting their homes and stealing the cows, water buffalo, chickens and goats.

Bengali Muslims continued to boost their threatening manners by yelling across the fields that divided
Buddhists and Muslims, and waving and thrusting swords and spears in the air.

Their tactic of displaying their penchant for violence intimidated the frightened Buddhists so much that
that the Buddhists felt trapped, overwhelmed, and angry that the Bengalis were so callous, vicious,
violent, supremacist, conniving, and beholden to a faith that seemed the polar opposite of Buddhism.
Some troops did show up, on foot, on Aug 28. They did go to the forest, and they found the body of
Maung Ni - in the mud, in the forest. But the troops were greatly outnumbered, and didn’t try to free
the village yet, so all still stayed in the monastery compound.

On September 1, 2017 around 200 Bengali Muslims, armed with spears and swords ambushed
security forces nearby. After security forces shot back at the attackers the Bengalis scattered and ran
away. Ten of the attackers were caught by soldiers chasing after them.

NOTICE: they were CAUGHT, not SHOT, and not even WOUNDED. They easily, and
rightfully could have been shot - after all, they had just ambushed a bunch of security forces with
the premeditated objective of killing everyone.

The soldiers brought those ten attackers to the Inn Din Village School. They interrogated the ten men,
who did reveal that they were ARSA supporters. They called for security forces to come and take the
prisoners away. But, security forces said they couldn’t reach Inn Din with a vehicle yet, because of the
blown up bridges and they were so stretched, and overwhelmed with rescuing protecting and
evacuating villages, there were lots of Bengali-made mines to deal with, and still a lot of fighting with
ARSA militants.

There is no jail at the village. And undoubtably no handcuffs - certainly not 10 pairs.
So, just how does one detain 10 violent, fanatically Islamic terrorists that are probably restrained
merely with village rope. If one terrorists got his hands freed, and got a few more of them freed, and
grabbed some weapons in a matter of seconds, they could easily kill scores of Buddhists. Think about
the situation - all the Buddhist women, children, babies, old men and women, and the men, are all
crowded into the compound, and you are going to have 10 violent men sleeping there as well? How is
anyone to sleep around there with 10 brain-washed zombies who are probably plotting how to get out

4
of their detainment and murder all the Buddhists around there? It is very risky to guard 10 violent men
who will try anything to escape.
Meanwhile, with ARSA Islamic militants mounting continuous attacks and destroying two military
vehicles with landmines, it was determined that there were no conditions to safely transfer the 10
violent murderous Bengali terrorists to the police station, and now it was day 2 with the captives, and
it was decided to kill them.
At 8:00 AM on September 2 , the 10 Bengali Muslim terrorists were led to the village graveyard by
villagers - who were refugees near their own homes, and, who have had to put up with their violent
behavior their whole lives - and by the two sons of U Maung Ni, who was murdered just one week
previous, by the same Islamic supremacy that has Bengali Muslims believing that they have divine
rights from their Allah God to kill anyone who is not Muslim.
The 10 terrorists were killed and buried. The Buddhists did not choose to have this awful situation
arise. The Bengali Muslims had started a war in which their goal was to completely exterminate all
non-Muslims in northern Rakhine State - a textbook example of attempted ethnic cleansing and
genocide. ________________________________

And now, we will examine the Reuters report of Feb 8, 2018, titled:
‘How Myanmar forces burned, looted and killed in a remote village’
My comments will be in blue

Reuters: On Sept. 2, Buddhist villagers and Myanmar troops killed 10 Rohingya men in Myanmar's
restive Rakhine state. Reuters uncovered the massacre and has pieced together how it unfolded.
During the reporting of this article, two Reuters journalists were arrested by Myanmar police.

Rohingya trace their presence in Rakhine back centuries. But most Burmese consider them to be
unwanted immigrants from Bangladesh; the army refers to the Rohingya as “Bengalis.”

Interesting how Reuters shows some shallow depth in the first sentence of this paragraph, by using a
term (Rohingya) that has no history to describe history, and ironically BOTH are false! There is plenty
of info about the term ‘Rohingya’ which is a recent invented term for the purpose of political
subterfuge, and if you want to talk about whose land this is it is so clearly the homeland of the
Rakhine Buddhist people and the legacy of their great and refined Kingdoms of which there is
monumental evidence everywhere you look in this land. Almost every Bengali Muslim that one sees
has a homeland called Bangladesh - same language, same religion, same customs and traditions,
even the same intolerance and supremacy. And, they call themselves ‘Bengali’. Their biggest mosque
has 2 signs in English on it - the Bengali Sunni Jamae Mosque. Reuters, is one of many news outlets
that have flagrant bias1 on matters concerning Islam, as they are bought up and controlled by Islamic
agenda.

Reuters: The slain men’s families, now sheltering in Bangladesh refugee camps, identified the victims
through photographs shown to them by Reuters. The dead men were fishermen, shopkeepers, the
two teenage students and an Islamic teacher.

1The CAMERA organization has produced many articles condemning the news and photo wire-agencies Reuters,
Agence France-Presse and the Associated Press. Reuters, in particular, has been the perpetrator of biased photos in its
Middle East reporting, according to Camera.
5
The dead men were most likely also Jihadists, willing to kill all non-Muslims. Where were they on Aug
25 when the Buddhists were being terrorized out of their own homes? Really. Where were they? They
could have stopped that display of Islamic arrogance. The worst of them was most likely the Mawlawi
(Imam) or as Reuters put it, the Islamic teacher. As you learn about this whole issue, and read the
prisoner interrogations, you will see that the Mawlawis are ALWAYS teaching the villagers that they
should unite, and attack and kill all non-Muslims, and, in fact, it is your duty to do that, Allah expects
you to do that. So, they actually are the teachers of Islam, and the evil force that brainwashes
everyone around them - so don’t shed any tears for those monsters.

Reuters want you to believe the ten dead men were like innocent meditation teachers that were
brutally killed by the bad bully Buddhists. It is the Islamic intolerance and supremacy that is the cause
and effect of all of this violentce, not only in Rakhine, but everywhere in the world where Islamists
driven by Koranic hatred and violence are bringing untold misery and insanity to people and cultures
that want nothing to do with it. Look at the photo of the ten men again - look at their eyes - what do
you see? (It is subjective, however, spend a little time, looking in their eyes, getting in their minds)

6
Reuters also did not mention that the main Mawlawi (Imam) in Inn Din was coincidently arrested on
Aug 24, 2017, for inciting extreme violence upon the Buddhists and broadcasting it through the
mosque speakers. And, that was the reason the Muslims of Inn Din did not attack their own police
posts and all the Buddhists in the early AM. But, they were so riled up that by noon that day they
could not restrain themselves anymore, and they first killed Maung Ni, and then terrorized the
villagers making them flee.

Reuters: But the military’s version of events is contradicted in important respects by accounts given to
Reuters by Rakhine Buddhist and Rohingya Muslim witnesses. The military said the 10 men
belonged to a group of 200 “terrorists” that attacked security forces.

Read the following long report from a military officer to Nay Pi Daw, Army Headquarters
It is a ‘battlefield’ report of known incidents on ONLY AUG 27-28

All of the ‘Human Rights Groups’ - HRW, FR, AI, news agencies like Reuters and AP,
and all of the ‘Rohingya’ advocates are continually preventing and blocking the public
from any awareness of the magnitude of the August 25 opening attacks.

Look for mention of Gwa Son, 1½ miles away

Report: Extremist Bengali Terrorists Still Commit Terrorist Acts in Maungdaw Region
Nay Pyi Daw, August 28

Maungdaw. The State Counsellor Information Committee will release the updates on the situation on
the ground.

Reuters: Buddhist villagers interviewed for this article reported no attack by a large number of
insurgents on security forces in Inn Din. And Rohingya witnesses told Reuters that soldiers plucked
the 10 from among hundreds of men, women and children who had sought safety on a nearby beach.

Here is where it will get very interesting. Reuters / Islamists doublespeak. Notice the wording of the
first sentence. ‘Buddhist villagers interviewed for this article reported no attack by a large number
of insurgents on security forces in Inn Din.’ So, if a Buddhist was interviewed but not for this article
he could have said something different. And, if there was no attack in Inn Din itself, then other attacks
don’t count. There are so many ways to prove absolutely that this Reuters piece (of garbage) is fully
aimed, armed and ready to crush the Buddhists, and to let Islamic Jihad win.

CAPTURED MILITANTS AND TERRORISTS INTERROGATIONS

First let’s look at some captured ARSA affiliated prisoner


interrogations, in which these four terrorists attacked the Gwa Son
police outpost, the biggest in the area. Gwa Son is only 1½ miles
south, but Reuters ‘forgot’ about that:

Rawfique Ullah (33), Anan Mulla (37), Anan Dulla (25) from Inn Din
Village, Maungdaw Township

and, Nazi Hu Saung (64), from Kyauk Pan Du village (3 miles north),
Maungdaw Township


How We Prepared to Attack:


Around 11:30 pm of 24.8.2017, Rawfique and Faruq gathered the
villagers and said that ARSA had arrived and that they planned to attack the police outposts in the
early morning and seize their weapons. ARSA militants had guns and bombs and they would lead the
attacks and Bengali villagers had to join them. They told us to be ready and if we don’t participate
they told us that they would kill us as traitors. If we got arrested when
we attacked, they said not to disclose anything about ARSA or that they
would kill our families. So, I grabbed my sword, and Sha Ar Lon (30),
Ra Maung Dulla (25), Ru Ar Lon (28), and Rofie (40) also came to the
mosque with swords and sticks. Then, Rawfique and Faruq led us, and
on the way we saw Nazi Hu Saung and other Bengalis from Kyauk Pan
Du village. There were about 300 total in our group.

How we attacked:
At 4:00 am on 25.8.2017, we (led by Rawfique and Farof) and ARSA
members surrounded the Gwa Son Police outpost and attacked it.
ARSA used guns and handmade bombs. Policemen shot back and we
moved back and eventually ran away.

How we were captured:


As we did not dare go back to our village, we - Na Zi Hu Saung, (F) Ahdu Shukhu, and Anar Dullah,
(F) Swaytar Baw, and Zu Bine, (F) Abu Arhar, and Adu Naw Bi, (F) Mamauk Husein, and Annan
Mulla, (F) Raw Bulla, and Zaw Baw, (F) Mot Nal, and Habi Bulla (F) Zaw Yaw - were hiding in Do Tan
Village near Alay Than Kyaw village, and we were found and arrested by the Army and BGP (Border
Guard Police).
11
How I Was Recruited:
There is a mosque in our village and I went there to pray, we had to go
5 times a day. Sometimes when we were in the mosque to pray,
Mawlawi [Imam] Khaw Li Ron told us villagers that someday soon
ARSA would attack the security forces and occupy the region, and
make it an Islamic State. He said the attacks would start after ARSA
terrorists and trainees arrived from Bangladesh, and that they would
bring guns and bombs. He told us that we need to get ready. This was
what he used to tell us very often.

How We Prepared to Attack:


At 9:00 pm on 24.8.2017, Mawlawi Khawli Ron gathered the villagers at
the mosque and said that ARSA was going to attack the police outposts
in the early morning, and that they would seize the weapons from the
outposts. He said ARSA would bring guns and bombs to use for the
attacks, and that they would also attack other targets in Maungdaw and Buthidaung Townships.

He told us to gather at the mosque at 12:00 midnight, and if we did not join, we would be killed as
traitors. If we were arrested, he told us not to disclose any information about ARSA, and if we did,
they would kill our family members. After that, I went home and grabbed my sword, and returned to
the mosque. Around 12:00 midnight, Mawlawi Khaw Li Ron led us and on the way we saw Rawfique
Ullah, Anar Dulla, Zu Bie, Adu Nawbi, Annan Mulla, Zaw Baw, and Habi Ullah with some unknown
Mawlawis. Altogether our group numbered around 300 Bengalis.

__________________________________________________________________

Reuters: Some members of the paramilitary police looted Rohingya property, including cows and
motorcycles, in order to sell it, according to village administrator Maung Thein Chay and one of the
paramilitary police officers.

More made up stuff to demonize Buddhists. Remember when they were confined to the monastery
compound for more than a week? And lo and behold, their homes were looted and their animals were
stolen. A cheap shot at the Buddhists. But, a very typical Muslim trait (sorry to say) of victimizing
yourself by turning everything backwards - they are the violent terrorists, they are the liars and
criminals, they are the cause of it all.

No wonder the Buddhists are really fed up with the Bengali Muslims.

Reuters: The second police officer described taking part in several raids on villages north of Inn Din.
The raids involved at least 20 soldiers and between five and seven police, he said. A military captain
or major led the soldiers, while a police captain oversaw the police team. The purpose of the raids
was to deter the Rohingya from returning.
“If they have a place to live, if they have food to eat, they can carry out more attacks,” he said. “That’s
why we burned their houses, mainly for security reasons.”

With the absolute chaos of war in late August and early September there was justification for such
things as, ‘deterring the Bengalis from returning’ and ‘burning parts of villages’ for safety’s sake,
because, the Bengalis were the enemy, they were trying to enable their plan to annihilate all non-
Muslims - in other words, a textbook example of genocidal ethnic cleansing. Given that situation, the
priority is to protect the citizens and that means safety, and if that means burn the adjacent homes to

12
prevent anymore sneak-up ambush attacks then do it. The Bengalis have to learn something that
Islam does not know - and that is cause and effect, and consequences and responsibility.

The family of U Maung Ni lives right

behind the trees on the left - you can


their house a bit.

On the right side of the pathway the


much larger Muslim part of the village
started. The path up the middle was
the definitive dividing line. In a
situation like this, when the enemy is
the Muslims, would you feel safe with
dense foliage right up to in front of
your house? Especially when one of
your family was already murdered? It
makes sense for safety’s sake to have
an unobstructed view. Even before
this incident, the men had to have
rotating night guards because of the
aggressive threats of the Muslims.
Cause and effect. Consequences.
Responsibility.

Reuters: Running out of supplies in the hills, several hundred Rohingya came down to the beach,
including the 10 men who would be slain, family members and neighbors of the men said. They
planned to set off in the coming days toward Bangladesh. A group of soldiers and armed Rakhine
Buddhists arrived. The soldiers picked out 10 men and said they were taking them away for a
meeting, Rohingya witnesses said.

The ten men were not picked out at random. I believe there was an incident, they had participated in
an ambush and were running away from it when the were captured by very fed up Buddhists. The
Buddhists captured the men and thought that the army could come get them but they couldn’t. The
Buddhist had no intention to kill them until the next day when it was obvious that it was going to be
very dangerous to keep holding them - don’t forget, there was no jail there. Finally, to be safe, while
all hell was raging up and down all of Maungdaw and beyond, they chose safety. After all, how much
trouble had those Bengalis created. If the Bengalis don’t like that, they shouldn’t have attacked police
posts, villages, and they shouldn’t force all of their Islamic crap on everybody else. But they did, and
those were the consequences. I think that, in this case, the Buddhists are not guilty. They finally had
to do that, in the circumstances given, for safety’s sake, under the duress of war.

13
I think what I wrote about this incident is much better and more accurate, though this Reuters article
does have pretty good sophisticated graphics, well done for that much.
