2.1 History, Origin and Residence of Rohingya History of Arakan State Arakan was a sovereign and independent state till 1784, shortly before the British colonial era, mainly due to its geographical position. But it is now one of the states of Myanmar. The Rakhine State (Sittwe, formerly Akyab, is the capital city) comprises a narrow mountainous strip of land along the eastern coast of the Bay of Bengal from the Naaf River to Cape Negaris, and stretches north and south touching Bangladesh on the northwest. The river Naaf separates Rakhine from Chittagong of Bangladesh (Qanungo, 1988).
