Arakan Army

 Established on April 10, 2009 Arakan Army led by Arakan’s youger generations, has become one of the most credibility army forces in Burma fighting for self-determination, national equality, justice and freedom. In solidarity with all ethnic people who are have been struggling in Burma and with the Arakanese around the globe in particular, we pursue our mission with excellence, compassion and modesty to protect our fatherland. Profoundly guided by inspirations of our faith, value, legacy and true vision that unite us as a people—we are committed to meet the tests of history; it defines our destiny. The land of Arakan belongs to the people of Arakan. To protect our ancestral land is the price of our freedom. No one should be denied the right to determine their own destiny, to be free of oppression—because freedom of expression is universal aspiration of humanity.


 The vision of Arakan is our proud inheritance from the very beginning of our national movement. We the Arakan Army continued our national struggle–and we recommit ourselves to the freedom that is at the heart of Arakan in which every citizen can live a life of dignity, self-respect, decency and hope, where every citizen feels proud to say—I am Arakanese.

 The land of Arakan is indeed promising, due to the spirit of our people–the creativity, optimism, determination and faith of Arakanese. We Arakanese today are passing through the most crucial phase of history, facing many challenges. Although we have faced serious challenges together–and we are compelled to face a choice. Together we can create life of dignity for our own future as we belonged to a promised land where our forefather’s unfolding memories tell us of the price past generations have paid so we might live in freedom. They had indeed done a great service for the cause of freedom and human dignity reminds us also of legacy for our generation we must meaningfully left behind.

 History can be rewritten, but we are obviously facing to the tasks of history to engrave the lives of our history much about the ideas that unite us in our diversity, the values that sustain us in time of trial, and the vision that inspires generation after generation of the Arakanese to perform extraordinary acts of service committing to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Time is now shaking the will and spirit of Arakanese and their character to show once again to be united people with a strong and confidence. Every human being has desire to live in freedom and peace. There is no compromise to the freedom we hold dear. By our will and courage we can achieve to the goal of the liberty and freedom we have long been denied.

As true spirit of Arakanese, we must show our greatness, not just for message, our determination must be strongest to the Arakan. Instead of the different ideologies that almost destroyed our unity and the way of life, let us share the burden and responsibilities as true Arakanese, so that together we can address challenges threatening to our ancestral land together.

By putting the shade of differences aside we must address the source of the problems we face today proving Arakan’s character of unity mutually is pledging our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. We all believe that Arakan’s unity is in the hearts and minds of Arakanese whose dedicated commitment and true vision will teach our generations the values that lend meaning to our lives and the life of our nation. These courageous efforts and bold decision made in the cause of unity will be long accomplishment and remembered in the history of Arakan.

The most important and challenging issues Arakanese have to address are called to great responsibilities we are duty-bound to meet them with opportunity and obligation. Commitment, collectivity and hard-work are fundamental principle for us to come forward. Equitable partnership based on national interest is the only means to achieve our unity. The Arakan Army firmly believed that national unity is the only way to sustain the hard won independence.


 Like perseverance that constitutes our core competence we the Arakan army keep our feet firmly on the ground while steadfastly pursuing our vision as a global cooperation to build a future worthy of our pledge and sacrifice. From glorious achievement of past rises our aspiration for global future: aspiration backed by our spirit, creativity, optimism and determination to work as a family and team to safeguard to the fatherland. For inspiration, we look to our brave Arakanese especially for those who are scarifying their lives in defense of the fatherland whose noble service reminds us of our mission as a nation—to build a future worthy of their sacrifice.

Lives of great Arakanese heroes who once glorified our ancestral land remind us that we can make our lives sublime and meaningful departing behind us footprints on the sands of time. These great Arakanese heroes were courageously and prominently defending to our country’s legacy of freedom and values we always cherish. The life of each and every one of them is precious to our nation. And each life given in the name of liberty is a life that has not been lost in vain but in honor the good souls whose memories are a blessing to path of our liberation.

History has witnessed to the characters of the people of Arakan who have shown strong and steadfast spirit what kinds of Arakanese are at toughness time. They have been partners in great enterprise sharing foremost responsibilities in protecting Arakan’s legacy of freedom. Throughout history, the brave Arakanese heroes have served our ancestral land and with selfless dedication and greater determination. They were standing firm against our enemies and those who sought to destroy our way of life and crushed our ideals as well as our heritages. We are sure that we all Arakanese agree that we owe a great debt of gratitude to those who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedom.

 Unity is the priority of priorities to Arakanese. Our greatest responsibility today is to prove our courage of unity refusing to live under the brutal and repressive dictatorship that had been destroyed lives and resources of our land. It’s our nation’s right to live in freedom, democracy and a good decent life. We the Arakan Army decisively hold the vision on uniting path of freedom and–we will pay price for the best of tomorrows.

The Arakan army firmly believed that we have the will and wisdom to apply ourselves in exciting tests of rebuilding our society and prosperous future . We must have the courage to celebrate the victory a day. The Arakan Army invites all Arakanese to join in our national struggle to accomplish our long desired mission we are in; to bind up nation’s wounds; to make the promise of our founding fathers come true.
