Rohingya - The forgotten people.

Salam to all. Rohingya - The Forgotten people. They are branded as one of the most persecuted communities in the world by the UN, yet nobody knows their name. They are the forgotten people. In recent weeks, the escalating violence has displaced more than 90,000 Rohingya people. Villages are being burnt, people are being abducted, concentration camps are being created, women are being raped and children mercilessly killed. The persecution against the Rohingya can be described in no other terms but that of ethnic cleansing and genocide.

The Rohingya need more than just donations, they need their basic human rights. They need security from constant persecution and abuse. They need a place they can legally call 'home'. They need the right to freely practice whatever religion they want. They need the right to have access to education, medicine and marriage. These are all small aspects which we take for granted, but the Rohingya dream of having. 

Lets do our little part to help them get these. All I'm asking you is to help, spread this awareness. Spread the video to people of faiths. Help Rohingya

For further information you can go to We are help and you can also go to their Facebook page or also to their Twitter page. Last but not least, do sign up the petition whereby with enough support, the government will have no other choice but to take action!

Note that : All the above text should be given credits to We are help organisation, not by me. I'm just here to spread the awareness. I do hope you readers will do take part to. Thank you.
