Aljazeera – Why is the world ignoring Myanmar’s Rohingya

Burmese are the ones who intervened Arakan they are foreigners not us

“It is true that we are not Burmese. We are an independent state – Arakan. And Rohingya is one of the races of Arakan not Burma …. They [the Burmese] are the ones who intervened, they are the ones who are foreigners [in] this land, they are the ones who invaded.” Muhammad Noor, a Rohingya political activist

Thousands of Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh – but thousands more have been refused entry. For those who do make it across the border their troubles are far from over.

An estimated 800,000 Rohingya live in Myanmar’s Rakhine state with another 200,000 in Bangladesh. They are not recognised by either country.

Myanmar has long faced tensions with many of its ethnic minorities, and the new government has agreed to a ceasefire with many of the groups.
