ၿဗိတိသွ် သံအမတ္ေဟာင္း Derek Tonkin က ၿဗိတိသွ်ေတြ ျမန္မာ ႏုိင္ငံကို အုပ္ခ်ဳပ္ခဲ့တဲ့ ၁၂၂ အတြင္း တစ္ခါမွရိုဟင္ဂ်ာ ဆိုတဲ့ စကားလံုးကို အစိုးရမွတ္တမ္းေတြ၊ သန္းေခါင္စာရင္းေတြ သာမက ပုဂၢိဳလ္ေရးေပးစာေတြမွာေတာင္ ရည္ညြန္းသံုးစြဲခဲ့တာမရိွဘူးလို႕ အခုလို ေရးထား ပါတယ္။
There is a very simple answer to the matter of British practice. There was no such identity as ‘Rohingya’ known to the British Governments of either India until 1937 or of Burma after the separation from India on 1 April of that year. In the 122 years between their conquest of Arakan in 1826 and Burmese independence in 1948, not a single reference to ‘Rohingya’ is to be found in any British official report, regional gazetteer, census, legislation, private correspondence or personal reminiscence.
