The Rohingya are one of the most persecuted races today. With no legal status, if they get arrested and imprisoned it is more onerous for unregistered Rohingyas to acquire adequate and fair representation.

Thank you Judy. The video was too disturbing for me to view.
I was talking to a dear friend this year and although it was an unrelated topic, I expressed I didn't understand why people did the things they did sometimes. GOOD PEOPLE. She simply said people do what they have to do, to survive. I can't explain how powerful those words were to me, but I was very clear and I felt the full impact of the reality of life. This is Heart Breaking at best.

I feel so badly for these people. The video working fine with me and one didn't need the video to view the writing.

The Rohingya are one of the most persecuted races today. A Muslim population living in northern Burma (Myanmar), an upsurge in sectarian violence in 2012 forced many to flee across the border into Bangladesh.

Which is what the video was showing and Bangladesh is such a poor Country itself, with many poor of it's own. So how can it really absorb this influx without help from other Countries. Hence why the article goes on to read.

Hundreds of thousands now subsist there in makeshift camps. So squalid are the conditions, so hopeless the prospects, that thousands are believed to be languishing on ‘migrant boats’ having taken perilous journeys to reach Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.

The man in the video was saying, we are treated like animals, is there no Country in the world that will take us in? Is there no room in any of the Muslim Countries? And that is the question, why can not some of the more stable muslim Countries take these people in?
