Navideshahed: People have held a rally in Paris in support of minority Rohingya Muslims who have been mistreated by Myanmar government.

People gathered in the French capital to call for an end to discrimination and sectarian violence against Rohingya Muslims. The protesters held signs reading “Stop the killing of Muslims in Burma,”? and “Don’t kill my brother.”?
The Buddhist-majority government of Myanmar refuses to recognize Rohingyas, claiming they are not native to the country. This is while the Rohingyas migrated to Myanmar as early as the 8th century.

Hundreds of Rohingyas have been killed in recent months, with thousands more being displaced following rising concerns over a state-sponsored ethnic cleansing of Rohingya population in Myanmar.

A pro-Rohingya activist, Maung Hla Aung, said “First of all their survival is very important. If we have no rights to survive on our homelands then democracy and human rights is nothing for us.”?

Last month, Human Rights Watch (HRW) condemned the Myanmar government for the killing of minority Rohingya Muslims during a recent wave of sectarian violence in the country.
