Radical Buddhists ask a Rohingya young man to serve them and then cut him with a chisel

A young Rohingya was assaulted by a group of Buddhists in Buthidaung City, resulting in sporadic injuries, one of which was very deep.
“I was on the edge of the river when I was approached by a number of Buddhists and they asked me to take them to the other side of the river on board my boat. I agreed to do so because I feared I would be harmed,” the young man told Arakan News Agency.

One of them try hitting me to the head with a machete and i tried to avoid it, but it hit me on my shoulder and caused a wound in which I screamed with the severity of pain.
“After I saw that they wanted to kill me, I jumped into the river and moved away from them,” he said. “Then people gathered from the neighborhood to find out the source of the scream. They saw me wandering in the water and the Buddhists were running away.”
Arakan News Agency reporter said the people who had come to the rescue had rescued him from the riverbed after losing his strength and taking him to his family’s home.
The reporter pointed out that the young man from a poor family is fishing, one of the remaining families after the military campaign launched by the Myanmar forces against the Rohingya Muslims in Arakan state since last August
