Paragraph on Rohingya Refugees
Rohingyas are an ethnic group. Majority of them are Muslims. They have lived for centuries in Myanmar. Nearly all of them are Rakhine. They speak Rohingya dialect. Myanmar does not consider them the country's own ethnic groups and so the Rohingyas have been denied citizenship since 1982. Thus the Rohingyas have become stateless and refugees. Since 1970s, nearly one millon Rohingya have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh being subject to physical and mental persecutions.
Currently, more than 1000 people have been killed brutally in Myanmar in recent violence. Their houses have been burnt. Many women have been raped. Many Rohingyas have drowned while crossing over to Bangladesh by boats. Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi and the military chief are intentionally encouraging these crimes against humanity. The UN and different human rights groups have severely criticized Myanmar for the recent violence. Problems of the Rohingya can be solved only if Myanmar takes them back and give back their hip and due rights.
