Origin: “TheRohingya” historically also mentioned as Arakanese Indians are mainly statelessIndo-Aryan people.
They are an ethnical group, majority of whom are Muslim.They have lived for centuries in the majority Buddhist country, Myanmar. They speakRohingya or Ruaingga a idiom that is seperate from others spoken in Rakhinestate and throughout Myanmar. Where are they from: Theyare from Rakhine state, Myanmar which is a Buddhist majority country.
It wasknown as Burma under British colonial rule and there was momentous migrationbetween today’s Myanmar, India and Bangladesh. When Burma won independence in1945, the government passed the Union Citizenship Act, which detailed theethnicities “indigenous” to Myanmar. After the military wound in Myanmar in1962, things changed histrionically for the Rohingya. The government guided byBamar-supremacist ideology gave fewer official documentation to the Rohingyaand refused to fully recognized new generations of the Rohingya population. By1982, a new citizenship law was issued that abstained Rohingya from easilyaccessing full citizenship, rendering much of them stateless. In 1989, thecountry was renamed Myanmar.
The 2012 Rakhine state riots were a series of quarrelbetween Rohingya Muslims who form the majority in the northern Rakhine andethnic Rakhines who form the majority in the south. How are they abused: TheRohingya abusing in Myanmar refers to the ongoing military by strict measuresthen they are subjected to routine forced labor where typically a Rohingya menwill have to give up one day a week to work on. In 1982, a new citizenship lawwas issued, which effectively rendered the Rohingya stateless. According to thelaw, Rohingya were again not recognized as one of the country’s 135 ethnicalgroups. In November 2016, a UN official accused the government of carrying outethnical cleansing of the Rohingya. It was not the first time such a complainthas been made. The government, however, has said “from Arakan Rohingya SalvationArmy (ARSA) nearly 100 people were killed by armed men when they launched araid on police outpost in the region”. How many have fled: ManyRohingya also jeopardizes their lives trying to get to Malaysia.
They used boatas transportation and run across the Bay of Bangla and the Andaman sea. Beforethe violence that begun in August, the UN calculated that there are as many as420,000 Rohingya refugees in Southeast Asia.

That’s changingand quickly as the scope of the disaster comes into clearer focus. The UnitedNations reported that same 500,000 Rohingya ethnic Muslims had fled Myanmar’sRakhine state since August 25. What does Myanmar Say:The government has also repeatedly rejected complaints of abuses.
In February2017, the UN published a report that found that. In September 2016, Aung SanSuu Kyi placed UN chief Kofi Annan with finding ways to heal the long-standingdivisions in the region. What does Bangladesh say: Bangladeshdiscriminate most of those who have crossed the border and are living outsideof camps as having “illegally infiltrated”. The country often tried to preventRohingya refugees from crossing the border. The talks were occupied in an favorableenvironment and Myanmar has made an offering to recall the Rohingya refugee,Ali said after appointment with the Myanmar official Kyaw Tint Swe in Dhaka. What does the international community say’s: “Military performed grave human rights abuses in Rakhine that may amount in war crimes, plead for argument the government denies” said by the international community.
