Rohingyas are the world’s most persecuted minority. They are muslim.
But they live under the rule of Buddhist in Myanmar. Almost 1.1 million Rohingya live in the Southeast Asian country. They speak inRohingya or Ruaingga. A dialect that is distinct to others spoken in
Rakhine State and throughout Myanmar.
They have been denied citizenship
in Myanmar since 1982, so they are stateless. All the Rohingas
livewestern coastal state of Rakhine. But they are not allowed to leave their
state without government permission.  It is one the poorest states in Myanmar. For the internal problem betweenmuslim
and Buddhist community, Therohingas are being killed or Sailing their neighbor
country.

                            

After they
gain independence from the British in 1948, they passed a rule which
ethnicities could gain citizenship under the Union Citizenship Act. Rohingya were initially given such identification or even
citizenship under the generational provision. During this time, several Rohingya also served in parliament. After the 1962 military
coup in Myanmar. This thing changed all. All citizens must have national
registration cards. But only rohingas were given foreign ID card, which limited
the jobs and educational opportunities. In 1982  Rohingya were again not recognized as one of the country’s 135
ethnic groups. As a result of the
law, their rights to study, work, travel, marry, practice their religion and
access health services have been and continue to be restricted. They can not
vote in for the country’s election. They have limited job in medicine, law or
running for office sectors. Since 1970s, they are force to flee to neighboring
Bangladesh, as well as Malaysia, Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries.

For Myanmar Army’s violence more than 500,000 people have trapped in
a no-man’s land between the two countries, according to the UN refugee agency. The UN has also said that hundreds of
civilians who have tried to enter Bangladesh have been pushed back by patrols.
Many have also been forcibly returned to Myanmar. The Myanmar government estimated that 400 people have been
killed so far, though others say the number is much higher. The UN estimate that 1,000 had been killed. Bangladesh’s foreign
minister, AH Mahmood Ali, said  from the
unofficial sources put the 3000
peoples had died. And More than 310,000 people had came to Bangladesh. Those who have made it to the
border have walked for days, hiding in jungles and crossing mountains and
rivers. Many of them are sick or have bullet wound.

 

Many Rohingya also risked their lives trying to get to Malaysia by boat
across the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Between 2012 and 2015, more than 112,000 made the dangerous journey.

 

For them boarder camps are facing shortage
of water, food rations and medical
supplies are running out of stock. Most refugees are now living in established
camps, makeshift settlements or sheltering in host communities.

 

There are
also fears for Rohingya people trapped in conflict zones. The UN said its aid
agencies had been blocked from
supplying life-saving supplies such as food, water and medicine to thousands of
civilians in northern Rakhine state.

 

For this
problem they fled to other country for better life.

The
government has claimed that they are attacking on the security forces.  And that the majority of those killed are terrorists.
It also says that Rohingya are burning their own villages. The claim was
condemned as dangerously irresponsible by aid workers, who fear for their
safety. 

 

 

Aung San
Suu Kyi won nobel prize on peace..
But she has been accused of silently standing by while violence is committed
against the Rohingya. Last year she appointed Kofi Annan, the former UN
secretary general, to lead a commission looking at long-term reconciliation in
Rakhine state. But she has failed to criticise violence against the Rohingya.

 

She said
that “”It is a little unreasonable to expect us to solve the issue in 18
months,” she told the Delhi-based Asian News International. “The situation in
Rakhine has been such since many decades. It goes back to pre-colonial times.”

 

She also
said that “Our resources are not as complete and adequate as we would like them
to be but still, we try our best and we want to make sure that everyone is
entitled to the protection of the law”.

 

This is the current
situation of Rohingyas. Their normal peoples like us. But for internal problem
of their country their facing great problems. That’s why their migrating other
countries. If UN and big countries take proper steps to slove this problem,
this problem can be sloved.
