Rohingya History by Zahid Win

Rakhine in 1404-1430 by Zahid Win

Rohingya Buddhist king (Borgwa) Naramik Hla escaped to Bangal in 1404-1430 after Burma occupied Rakhine and he converted to Islam in Bangal under king Salahuddin. Narami Khalla as Sulaiman Shah conquered Bamma king by the deporting of King Salahuddin. Sulaiman Shah changed the name Rakhine to Arakan for the people of all resident in Rakhine. Buddhist Rohingya, Hindu and Marggwe Burma Buddhist didn’t like the name Arakan because the name Arakan is Arabic or Persian. So, today the people who called themself Rakhine are actually real Burma from Marggwe district but they got chance to stay in Arakan by Muslim king Sulaiman Shah. That is why Rakhine/Bamma know very well that Rakhine and Rakhine are same word and they were afraid to get lost their right if Rohingya become stronger than Buddhist Rakhine. Burma central government has been playing since 1948 with Rohingya and Rakhine. So, we Rohingya are very weak than others at the moment but not for ever. We should understand the situstion and we must balance arms power, Economic and Technology and Education. We have to do many thing in future may be for 30 years. When you become stronger or similar, you can see the situation. If you want something, so you should abandon something.
