While there are multiple inter-communal tensions and attacks among Myanmar’s ethnic communities, there is no other case where a group’s ancestral history and identity have been singled out for sustained and vicious assault in the same way Rohingya people have been. 

Myanmar’s 3-year-old popular resistance – known as Nway Oo or Early Summer Revolution – against Senior General Min Aung Hlaing’s coup regime has triggered a popular recognition of Rohingya as an ethnic people. There is also increasing public acknowledgement of the slow-burning genocide that Rohingyas have been subjected to primarily by the country’s national armed forces, but also by the hybrid government of Aung San Suu Kyi – Min Aung Hlaing.

Recently, Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan told reporters that Rohingya camps in Bangladesh may become the hub of international terrorists. He said, “There may be an influx of arms. Many things can happen. And we already see some signs of these”.
