They also said they were running short of food since August 25, when Rohingya militants launched deadly attacks in Rakhine state, provoking a fierce crackdown by the Myanmar military.
Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi today for the first time addressed the situation in Rakhine amid the growing worldwide criticism following ethnic cleansing that forced more than 400,000 minority Rohingya Muslims from the country.
The Nobel Peace laureate's remarks came in her first address to the nation since attacks by Rohingya Muslim insurgents on August 25 sparked a military response that has forced 421,000 Rohingya Muslims into neighbouring Bangladesh.
"We had a lot of faith in her earlier but she has given us no guarantees and has not done anything to give us any hope that we can return safely".
Deen Mohammed Noori from the Bradford based Arakan Rohingya Organisation said the United Kingdom was continuing to provide military training to troops in the country, despite the wave wave of violence that has left hundreds dead, thousands of homes burned, and tens of thousands fleeing to Bangladesh.
Suu Kyi in her speech said, "50% of the villages of Muslims are intact".
Suu Kyi did not refer to the Rohingya by name, in keeping with the government's view that members of the ethnic and religious minority are illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and not among the dozens of national ethnicities officially recognized by Myanmar. "We would like to talk to those who have fled as well as those who have stayed".
Suu Kyi asked for patience from the global community and suggested the refugees were partly responsible, saying more than half of the Rohingya villages had not been destroyed by the violence.

More than 410,000 Rohingya have fled the country in what the United Nations has described as a "textbook example of ethnic cleansing", with security forces and local militia reportedly burning villages and shooting civilians. I liked what she said.
This failure stems partly from the legacy of the military regime, and partly from Myanmar's geostrategic significance and natural resources, which impel the country's powerful allies to ward off any effective UN Security Council resolutions against the state's grave human rights violations.
Delivered in English without Burmese subtitles, her speech carried "a message that was for the worldwide community", said Sein Win of the Myanmar Journalism Institute.
"While it was positive to hear Aung San Suu Kyi condemn human rights violations in Rakhine state, she is still silent about the role of the security forces in this".
"We can arrange for you to visit these areas and to ask them for yourself why they have not fled. even at a time when everything around them seems to be in a state or turmoil", she said.
Spokesman Joel Millman of the International Organization for Migration says an estimated 20,000 people are flowing across Myanmar's border into Bangladesh every day.
They show the destruction of tens of thousands of homes across Maungdaw and Rathedaung Townships, part of the Burmese security forces' campaign of ethnic cleansing.
The scenario was the same as the previous days, when many local people joined government agencies and NGOs to distribute relief goods to refugees in Ukhiya's refugees camps and nearby areas.
