With violent confrontations on the rise, there is an increasing fear of the radicalization of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. A recent accusation from Indian intelligence points the finger at its Pakistani counterparts.
Last Saturday, in the hilly jungles near the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladeshs Coxs Bazar district, police forces were involved in a gunfight with a criminal gang. Local news sources reported that the police rescued three Rohingya who were kidnapped and held for ransom. Earlier that week, a clash between two armed groups in the camps injured 14 Rohingya refugees. There were two groups, Mohammad Kashem, one of the injured, told DW. They attacked one another and I was shot.
These are not the only criminal activities that are taking place in the Rohingya camps. Criminal groups have often been involved in confrontations within the camps and with police. At least 195 Rohingyas have been killed over the past year. [ ]

It also reported that ISI provided JMB with a first installment of 10 million taka ($117,000, 107,000) that was funneled through Saudi Arabia and Malaysia for the training.

Ah, our good friends the Saudis again.
The Muslims were already terrorizing Burma.
That’s why the Burmese had to take action in the first place.
They created the Taliban also.
Radicalizing only works if the potential radicals haven't been brought up to be radical their entire lives. This is a tongue-in-cheek comment brought to you by the makers of IUD IEDs, leaders in worldwide jihad.
