So ‘Arakan’ is our land and some Rakhine historical documents and eyewitnesses had been lostand our Arakan had been occupied, we have been able to find the term ‘Arakan’ instead of ‘Rakhine’ in all the research paper
s and historical books about which many prominent researchersfrom the Western Countries had studied in various scientific ways.
So if one wants to find some information about Rakhine in world history, one has to do so by
using the term ‘Arakan’.
But during U Nu’s premiership in 1951, Bengali people we
re given the posts of parliament
representatives, whereby a Muslim called Abdu Gava used a brand new term ‘Rohinger’ in 1951and created a brand new nationality ‘Rohingya’ in Arakan.
(So-called) Rohingyas who had been created
thus have presented to the world saying, “We,
Rohingyas, have lived in Arakan for about 1000 years
prior to the present Arakanese people. So
Arakan is our land. Arakanese are our nationality.”
As Saya U Bo Min Phyu has said, never before 1949, i.e, until the end of World War (II) in worldhistory, had this name heard of in Buthitaung and Maungdaw.
But they submitted research papers to the world, presenting themselves as a nationality who hasbeen living in Arakan for over 1000 years.
They have been so aggressive as to submit the research papers for over 20 years.
