Life In A Rohingya Refugee Camp In Delhi

Advertisements

Religious and ethnic tensions have bubbled to the surface in Myanmar, also known as Burma, with deadly consequences. Due to Large-scale Violence  in 2012 between the Rohingyas, who belong to the Arakan region of Myanmar, and the Rakhine Buddhist population, many members of this community migrated to countries like Pakistan, Malaysia, Bangladesh, India and Indonesia.

The Rohingya Muslim refugees are stateless and living in poor condition.
