The Myanmar government has effectively institutionalized discrimination against the ethnic group through restrictions on marriage, family planning, employment, education, religious choice, and freedom of movement.
For example, Rohingya couples in the northern towns of Maungdaw and Buthidaung are only allowed to have two children [PDF].
They differ from Myanmar’s dominant Buddhist groups ethnically, linguistically, and religiously.
The Rohingya trace their origins in the region to the fifteenth century, when thousands of Muslims came to the former Arakan Kingdom.
The Rohingya are an ethnic Muslim minority who practice a Sufi-inflected variation of Sunni Islam.Myanmar, formally known as Burma, is a truly diverse country as its 60 million population is made up of an amazing 135 races.It is the largest country in mainland south east Asia, and is slightly larger than Afghanistan.Similarly, under pressure from Buddhist nationalists protesting the Rohingya’s right to vote in a 2015 constitutional referendum, then-President Thein Sein canceled the temporary identity cards in February 2015, effectively revoking their newly gained right to vote.(White card holders were allowed to vote in Myanmar’s 2008 constitutional referendum and 2010 general elections.) In the 2015 elections, which were widely touted by international monitors as free and fair, no parliamentary candidate was of the Muslim faith.
