At a time when Hindus are being targeted in Myanmar's Rakhine state, Myanmar's Ambassador to India Maung Wai in an exclusive interview to India TV said that possibilities are there that the neighbouring countries might be harbouring  Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), the  terrorist group led by Rohingya Muslims.

The Myanmar diplomat admitted that ARSA is responsible for killing of Hindus in Myanmar.

He further added that ARSA terrorists can target any community. "They are extremist terrorists, they are not normal people, they are mad people," Maung Wai told India TV.

In the past few days, bodies of around 100 Hindus have been discovered in mass graves in violence-torn Rakhine state. The police have also blamed the insurgent group ARSA for the killings.

According to the latest report from the Inter Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) in Bangladesh, at least 480,000 Rohingya refugees have arrived in Bangladesh since clashes began in Myanmar's Rakhine state on August 25.
