“Will 2019 be better for the Rohingya?” Rising Kashmir, 16 January 2019
Last year (2018) was bad for the Rohingya community in Myanmar. Despite multiple initiatives from the UN, individual countries and human rights groups, the Rohingyas remained helpless during 2018. Will 2019 be better for them? Is there a light at the start of the new year? Will the situation change for them within Myanmar? Will the immediate neighbours – Bangladesh, India and Thailand work together and address the Rohingya situation with a humane gesture? Finally, will, the international community act decisively and make a change in 2019 for the helpless Rohingyas?
