Rohingya crisis: Suu Kyi controversial speech and who are Rohingya Muslims

Rohingya crisis: Suu Kyi controversial speech and who are Rohingya Muslims
Written by Pallavi Parmar

Rohingya Muslims are Myanmar based controversial refugees who are currently suffering to fulfill their basic needs such as food, shelter, cloth, security, and respect. Though there are not clear facts and figures about how many of them are terrorists, but it has been alleged that most of them are involved in malicious activities. Several media organizations showed that there are around 40, 000 Rohingya Muslims who live in India, while Indian government has decided to shut down doors for those people. And after fleeing from the Myanmar violence about 16,000 of them have refugee documentation. Home Minister Rajnath Singh claims that it has evidence that the illegal immigrants tied up with terror groups such as ISIS.

Rohingya’s just want shelter and place to live their life but India is not supporting them and asking them to leave India. Now everyone has a question that Who are the Rohingya, from where they came? and what they want? So, let me tell you all that Rohingya’s are the Indo-Aryan people from the Rakhine State of Myanmar. And in 1982 Rohingya population are denied citizenship under the Myanmar nationality law then they illegally settled in different parts of India. They are worried because they faced military crackdowns from 1978 till 2017. As per the reports, there are around one million Rohingyas who were living in Myanmar before 2016-2017.

The de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi delivered controversial speech claimed that she did not “fear international scrutiny” over its handling of violence in Rakhine state. However, she was criticised for what some saw her ongoing disinclination to address the crisis and the role of government.
