A few weeks ago, we reported about the most persecuted minority in the world—the Rohingya Muslims. This group is continually denied basic rights and treated as illegal.
The word “genocide” has been attached to the situation as the situation worsens with Rohingyas fleeing to Bangladesh.
For generations, Rohingya Muslims have called Myanmar home, but now, their government seems to be systematically purging them.
Since our last report, the estimated number of Rohingyas that have fled to Bangladesh has risen from at least 123,000 to more than 400,000.
