Rohingyas are a Muslim minority in Myanmar regarded by many Myanmar buddhist as illegal migrants from Bangladesh. The Rohingyas have lived in Myanmar for generations and Bangladesh government has called for Myanmar to take back the refugees. They are denied citizenship in Myanmar and have been described as the world’s most persecuted minority. Rohingyas are prosecuted in Myanmar by security forces and extremist buddhist. Myanmar has denied prosecuting the Rohingyas. Since the 1970s Rohingya refugees have been settling in Bangladesh, with an estimated 300,000 to 500,000 refugees in Bangladesh as of 2017. The sectarian violence took place in late 2016 again that forced Rohingya community to escape for sake of life from Rakhaine state of Myanmar. Most of the refugees are located along the Teknaf-Cox’s bazaar highway that is parallel to Naf river which is the border between Bangladesh and Myanmar. Most of the refugees are located in or near Cox’s bazar, a coastal area dependent upon tourism.
Though Myanmar government denied any ethnic cleansing and human rights violence against Rohingya muslim community of Rakhaine state. The tragedy is Rohingyas who are trapped in border area of Rakhaine state are subjected to terrific military crack downs. So many are tortured, arrested randomly and missing numbers are uncountable and who arrived in Teknaf, Bangladesh luck by chance, are unable to get any shelter in refugee camp as Bangladesh government ceased the border due to incursion of refugees which is an arising problem in Bangladesh.
