They are a Muslim minority living in north Rakhine region, a small state of Myanmar, were denied citizenship by a law enacted by its military government, so reducing their status to that of a stateless group. They were denied the right to own land or property and exposed them also to forced labour and routine violence, as rape and killings. Soldiers wants the complete control of entire country's land for new forms of economies, mining, timber, geothermal energy, with new international partnership.
For survive, since 2017 until the print of this book, more than 800,000 Rohingya crossed the border with Bangladesh.
