Dr. Mohammed Yunus, leader of Arakan Muslims, said that Buddhists in Arakan were killing Muslims by using the weapons of security forces.
Buddhists were plundering with the support of authorities, added Yunus who spoke to AA in Turkey on Saturday.
The cruelty made on Muslims was backed by Myanmar government, he said, adding that Muslims were suffering big pain and cruelty.
The massacre began on June 3 again, said Yunus, adding that the reason was that Muslims in the world and western countries were remaining silent to this massacre.
Especially young, educated and intellectual Muslims are being arrested in Arakan, he said, adding that they did not know where the arrested ones were taken.
Yunus said that they asked international observers to be sent to the region, adding that thousands of Muslims had been killed in recent incidents and many others were reported missing.
Yunus said that although Bangladesh closed the border, 20,000 people have taken shelter in Bangladesh since June 3.
Total number of Myanmar Muslims who took shelter in Bangladesh is 500,000, he added.
