NEW DELHI: The rise and network of Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which operates on the Bangladesh-Myanmar border, is seen by its observers as a reflection of its terrorist activities.

According to a report in German news agency DW, published on 13 February, the Rohingya refugee camps in Cox's Bazar area are experiencing an increase in drug and other criminal activities, with the influx of outside groups.

The JMB, officially recognized as a terrorist group in Bangladesh, carried out a 2016 raid on a Holey Artisan coffee shop near the diplomatic district of Dhaka, killing 22 people. Most of the dead were foreigners.

The JMB was responsible for training 40 Rohingya, with a country from the Gulf and Malaysia providing $ 117,000, according to DW.

According to the report, Pakistan Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was among those behind the training, and the Indian government has alerted Bangladeshi government officials and border security officials.

Siegfried O. Wolf, an analyst at the South Asia Democratic Forum, a Belgian-based group based in Brussels, has confirmed the possible involvement of ISI.

He said the ISI's main goal was to destabilize some countries in the region, with Afghanistan and India at the top.

Wolf says it would be better for Pakistan to choose its cross-border terrorism as a third country, as the international community is watching Kashmir.

As a result, the Rohingya in the camps have become a target for terrorist groups.

Abdur Rashid, a Bangladeshi security expert (former Brigadier General), told DW that there had been attempts to penetrate Rohingya in the past, but that Bangladeshhad always prevented them from doing so.

Rashid, of the Dhaka-based Institute for Conflict, Law and Development Studies, said Bangladesh has so far helped India in such matters.

He added that Pakistan could "destabilize India" by supporting extremist groups (as mentioned earlier). But Bangladesh has said it will not do so.

Shahriar Alam, Bangladesh's depute foreign minister, told DW that attempts to spread extremism in the camps had not been successful in the past.

ARSA has returned to the border and has intensified its military operations, according to senior Burmese military officials. In the refugee camps, ARSAs are active at night and disguised during the day.

In August 2017, ARSA raided police stations in northern Rakhine. This month marks the third year.

Tatmadaw spokesman Brigadier General Zaw Min Tun said ARSA members have been conducting more military operations since April.

In May 2020, a lieutenant colonel and a policeman were injured when ARSA sniped at border guards. In early June, the Tatmadaw claimed that two bodies and two weapons were found in a half-hour clash with ARSA near the village of Meedik between BP-34 and BP-35 on the Burma-Bangladesh border.

The military has seized ARSA temporary camps and interrogated Muslim refugees who have returned (both legally and illegally), but have said that ARSA has been active in the camps.

According to a DW report published on September 24, 2019, ARSA is active in the refugee camps. There were other drug and crime incidents in the camps.

Indian BS. Harami Indians are fantasizing new BS to keep their ISI Jihad narrative alive. Of course the Western powers are there to help their Indian brothers.

I guess this is the one mentioned in the article.

Is Pakistani intelligence radicalizing Rohingya refugees?
What is written in the report? This???

It has long been a theory that external forces have been trying to fish in these troubled waters and spread extremist sentiment. Recent reports by Indian newspapers indicated that some of the efforts may have Pakistani links.

A Times of India report claimed in January that Indian agencies had issued a fresh warning to the country's armed forces and border guards that Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is involved in providing training to 40 Rohingya people in Cox's Bazar.

ISI-backs ARSA in Myanmar; India-Bangladesh security agencies fight back jointly

Report By
Dipanjan Roy Chowdhury, ET Bureau

NEW DELHI:
Bangladeshi government has been visibly misled by a fabricated report of New Delhi based journalist Dipanjan Roy Chowdhury, who twisted a recent statement of ex-ISI [Inter Service Intelligence] chief Asad Durrani’s testimony before Pakistan’s Supreme Court, where he admitted to funding a number of Pakistani politicians and political parties, while there is no such existence of funding Bangladesh Nationalist Party [BNP], though this was openly accused by Bangladeshi Prime Minister, Sheikh Hasina stating the main opposition BNP received fifty million Pakistan rupees from ISI prior to general election in 1991.

It was later learnt that Dipanjan Roy Chowdhury was summoned by some top brasses of Research and Analytical Wing [RAW] on March 2, 2012 and was escorted to New Delhi headquarters of the Indian spy agency, wherefrom he wrote the report for Khaleej Times and it was later sent to the Indian-born owners of the Dubai based newspaper with the special instruction of publishing it prominently. Subsequently, when the fabricated and twisted news appeared in Khaleej Times, some influential members of the Indian government phoned editors of two of the leading daily newspapers in Dhaka, suggesting them to give “best treatment” to the Khaleej Times news. It may also be mentioned here that, vernacular daily Prothom Alo, which was frantically trying to send both Sheikh Hasina [chief of Bangladesh Awami League] and Khaleda Zia [chief of Bangladesh Nationalist Party] into exile following the installation of military backed authoritarian regime in 2007, is accused of playing “foul game” in destabilizing democratic institutions in the country. The editor of the newspaper, who was earlier a veteran ‘comrade’ of the Communist Party, is also named of being affiliated with Islamist militancy group in Bangladesh.

Fake propaganda by Bharat.


Bangladesh needs to be vigilant and safe guard itself against the mother of terror in South Asia i.e India.



Pakistan has no intention of causing instability in a brotherly country like BD, how will this benefit Pakistan? The only beneficiary from destabilisation is India.
