The Rohingya people are also rejected from other countries with no regard for their humanity. The bottom line is that they are a stateless people, and their situation is getting worse. Burma is a country that has lived under military government for a very long time, and this has impacted educational and social understandings in ways that western people can not begin to imagine. Persecution is nothing new in Asia, but the Rohingya story is off the charts in terms of international Human Rights law violations and Crimes Against Humanity. The lucrative potential of today’s Myanmar is too much for those with an eye on exploitation to ignore.
