Maungdaw Township (Burmese: မောင်တောမြို့နယ် [máʊɴdɔ́ mjo̰nɛ̀]) is a township of Maungdaw District in the Rakhine State of Myanmar. The principal town is Maungdaw.[1]

There is also a large Muslim population (roughly at 80%) in 2012. In July 2012, the Myanmar Government did not include the Bingali minority group–-classified as stateless Bengali Muslims from Bangladesh since 1982—on the government's list of more than 130 ethnic races and therefore the government says that they have no claim to Myanmar citizenship.[2] Other 20% population are Rakhine, Bamar, Kamein, Khami, Daingnet, Mro and Thet.

There are five basic education high schools, three high schools (branches), eight middle schools, one middle school (branch), one affiliated middle school, 16 post-primary schools and 125 primary schools in 2010-11.[3]
