The Rohingya Muslims - Search for a new life

The Rohingya people have been described as “among the world’s least wanted” and “one of the world’s most persecuted minorities.” They have been denied Burmese citizenship since a 1982 citizenship law was enacted. They are not allowed to travel without official permission and were previously required to sign a commitment not to have more than two children, though the law was not strictly enforced. According to the Amnesty International, the Rohingya people have suffered fromhuman rights violations under the Burmese junta since 1978, and many have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh as a result. In 2005, the UNHCR had assisted with the repatriation of Rohingyas from Bangladesh, but allegations of human rights abuses in the refugee camps threatened this effort. In 2015, 140,000 Rohingyas remain in IDP camps after communal riots in 2012.
