The Rohingya people historically also termed Arakanese Indians are a stateless Indo-Aryan people from Rakhine State, Myanmar. There were an estimated 1 million Rohingya living in Myanmar. As of September 2017, nearly half of them have fled to other countries.
The majority are Muslim while a minority are Hindu. Described by the United Nations in 2013 as one of the most persecuted minorities in the world, the Rohingya population are denied citizenship under the 1982 Burmese citizenship law, which restricts full citizenship from British Indian migrants who settled after 1823.
According to Human Rights Watch, the law "effectively deny to the Rohingya the possibility of acquiring a nationality. Despite being able to trace Rohingya history to the 8th century, Burmese law does not recognize the ethnic minority as one of the national races". They are also restricted from freedom of movement, state education and civil service jobs. The Rohingyas have faced military crackdowns in past.
UN officials have described Myanmar's persecution of the Rohingya as ethnic cleansing, while there have been warnings of an unfolding genocide. Yanghee Lee, the UN special investigator on Myanmar, believes the country wants to expel its entire Rohingya population.
Bangladesh had started receiving migrants from neighboring country Myanmar. They do lack in providing the basic necessities and the shelters for migrants.
Please share and raise the voice for them.
