The issue of ethnic cleansing is the main cause of violence and repression carried out on ethnic Rohingya in Myanmar.

ϖ In 1982, the Muslim Rohingya suddenly declared as foreigners in their own country.

ϖ They suppress by law "Burma Citizenship Law of 1982" that discriminate against Rohingya ethnic and religious nature of their citizenship is not recognized.

ϖ The need for citizenship in Myanmar is not specified for the Rohingya. Rohingya people as a minority community in Myanmar caused them to be considered "illegal Bengalis" and hated by the majority of people in Burma.

ϖ For a pro-democracy group, they consider the Rohingya is a liar and the group intended to kill all the Rohingya in Myanmar. This is because they are laughing at black people from the Indian subcontinent.

Violence and oppression of Myanmar Rohingya cause by disputes and discrimination between both Islam and Buddhism.

ϖ Muslim Rohingya supported by Buddhist monks, but they do not accept immigrants. They give harsh treatment to women and children who ousted Rohingya people outside the temple and not given food and drink.

ϖ children were denied the right to education and Muslim women are not allowed to veil, and one of them is to prevent discrimination and rape.

ϖ Muslims are not allowed to perform the pilgrimage and perform the sacrificial slaughter at al-Adha. These conditions restrict them to live as independently Muslims.
