In contemporary times, the Rohingya crisis is one of the largest humanitarian disasters. Over one million ethnic Rohingyas live in the restive Rakhine state of Myanmar. They are bearing the brunt of prolonged warfare and persecution. They have faced decades of religious discrimination, hatred, and targeted violence that has equally compelled men and women, young and old, and girls and boys to flee from Myanmar into neighboring Bangladesh for their survival. Due to uninterrupted violence, persecution, and scores of attacks they faced in 1978, 1991–1992, and then since 2017, Rohingyas are taking refuge in Bangladesh. To save their lives from systemic discrimination in Myanmar nearly 900,000 ethnic Rohingyas, including 400,000 children, have already rushed into the largest refugee camps of Bangladesh.
