Countdown to Annihilation: Genocide in Myanmar.

Jan 20, 2017

A Research report of International State Crime Initiative, School of Law, Queen Mary University of London. Nearly one million Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh to escape persecution in Myanmar's Rakhine State. Since the latest escalation in August 2017, 360 villages have been burned down and a daily average of over 10,000 Rohingya refugees are crossing into Bangladesh. In 2014, ISCI researchers gathered data which in their view began to indicate a genocidal process. Further exploring this, in 2017 they returned to the region and added evidence from interviews with Rohingya refugees in Bangladeshi camps. Together these data support the idea that the plight of the Rohingya of Rakhine State may well be formally classified as genocide. There are 1.1 million Rohingya refugees now in Bangladesh. As this research was the only ethnographic research done on Rohingya community we find it vital to translate this into Bengali Language. This research was translated into Bangali Language by Hussain Ahmed and we have supported it to be published in 2017.
