CHATIME visits a Rohingya family living in New Zealand
Directed by Fahad Sher Hussain Edited by Dion James Pitman Special thanks to Rahmat & his family, and Mario Kaitani "The Rohingya is a Muslim ethnic group of the Northern Arakan State of Western Burma (also known as Myanmar). The Rohingya population is mostly concentrated in two bordering townships of Arakan to Bangladesh, namely Maungdaw and Buthidaung, and is spread in three townships of Akyab, Rathedung and Kyauktaw. According to Amnesty International, the Muslim Rohingya people have continued to suffer from human rights violations under the Burmese junta since 1978, and many have fled to neighboring Bangladesh as a result, where they also feel threatened by the local authorities" Sourced from Wikipedia
