Stateless: The Plight of the Rohingyas in Burma
JOINT STATEMENT ON TERRORIZING THE ROHINGYA ONCE AGAIN TO IDENTIFY AS BENGALI
The government of Burma/Myanmar had conducted the scheduled nationwide UN sponsored census on 30 March-10 April. But it has discriminately excluded the entire Rohingya population from the census for self-identifying their Rohingya ethnicity.
The government has now resumed enumeration in northern Arakan/Rakhine State threatening the Rohingya people once again to identify as Bengali, a term that implies they are illegal immigrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.

The Rohingya Revisited
Nearly a year ago, I wrote an article outlining reasons why the ICC should take action in Myanmar (also known as Burma) in order to stop continued religious and ethnic violence towards the Rohingya. During 2013, not surprisingly, the anti-Muslim violence in Myanmar has continued. In fact, violence has spread beyond targeting the Rohingya and against the larger Muslim population. Although, the majority displaced from the violence are still the Rohingya.
