Rohingya Muslims...An Open Wound

By Onislam staff


CAIRO – Described by the UN as one of the world's most persecuted minorities, Burma's ethnic-Bengali Muslims, generally known as the Rohingyas, are facing a catalogue of discrimination in their homeland.

They have been denied citizenship rights since an amendment to the citizenship laws in 1982 and are treated as illegal immigrants in their own home.

Rohingyas say they are deprived of free movement, education and employment in their homeland and suffer human rights abuses at the hands of government officials.

The Burmese government as well as the Buddhist majority refuse to recognize the term "Rohingya", referring to them as "Bengalis".

OnIslam.net gives audience a glimpse of the years-long suffering of Rohingya Muslims.
