Bangladesh and Myanmar recently signed a bilateral deal to return in phases the over 650,000 Rohingya refugees languishing in Bangladeshi border camps for over a year. While this move may release some of the swelling international pressure on both states to uphold basic human rights, it does little to improve the future prospects of the Rohingya. And with the U.N kept out of this deal, there will be no neutral oversight to ensure the process goes smoothly and without bloodshed. Some media sources, including the B.B.C, have oxymoronically termed the brokered return a “repatriation,” which is facetious. Repatriation implies the Rohingya will return to their country of citizenship.
However, conditions in the most of the country’s refugee camps are dire, driving many to risk a perilous voyage in the Bay of Bengal. More than 137,000 refugees from Myanmar were registered in Malaysia as of September 2014, according the UN , including tens of thousands of Rohingya. The Global Emergency Overview, which tracks humanitarian crises, tallied more than 40,000 UN-registered Rohingya as of last December, but activists say there are roughly an equal number of unregistered Rohingya in the country. Kuala Lumpur has recently signaled a growing unease with the migrant influx. In May 2015, Malaysian Deputy Home Minister Wan Junaidi Jafaar said "We have treated [migrants] humanely but they cannot be flooding our shores like this."
Overview The Muslim minority living in western Myanmar/Burma 's Rakhine State – almost 800000 people – identify themselves as Rohingya. For decades they have suffered legal and social discrimination. There are long-standing tensions with the Buddhist Rakhine community over land and resources. These conflicts, in term, have subjected the Rohingyas to be denied the right to citizenship and even the right to self identify. The Rohingyas are subject to many restrictions like banned from travelling without authorization and prohibited from working outside their villages, they cannot even get married without permission from the authorities, and severely lack sufficient access to food, medical care and education.
(Hill, C 2012). The world has watched in horrors as the humanitarian disaster has unfurl in Myanmar for decade years and it makes Myanmar ranked top of the worst human rights in the world .

Muslims lived in the area now known as Myanmar since the early 12th century, according to many historians and Rohingyas. During more than 100 years of British rule, there was a great deal of labor migration to what is now Myanmar of India and Bangladesh today. Because the British run Myanmar as an Indian province, such immigration is considered internal, according to human rights. After independence, the government considered migration during British rule "illegal, and on this basis reject
The refugees are blaming the Myanmar military, while the Burmese military declared the Rohingya are burning their own homes. One of the only few people that was allowed into Rakhine was the BBC's Jonathan Head, but under strict government surveillance. While on the tour of the region's villages, he was provide with photos showing Rohingya reportedly burning their home, later on he discovered that the photos he was given were fake (BBC, 2017). It is estimated about 40,000 Rohingya refugees that are in India and 16,000 of them that have acquired official refugee documentation. Most of the Rohingya running away from Myanmar have not made into Bangladesh.
This time, the Rohingya have been denied citizenship which makes them stateless and unwelcomed to their own country. They have lived for generations in Myanmar but never being considered as one of the country’s official ethnic groups. They are facing oppression, violence, persecution

The Rohingya have to fled their home land and live in danger of the forest. They fled in fear of to be alive or
About 603,000 refugees from Rakhine, Rohingya had crossed the Myanmar border and came into Bangladeshalone since 22 October 2017 to August 25,2017. It was reported by UN. Myanmar had crossed the border into Bangladesh alone since August 25, 2017.This number increased to 624000 by November 2, 2017.Where we can see most of them are Muslim and a minor people followed Hindu religion. How are Rohingya persecuted? The Rohingya persecution in Myanmar refers to the ongoing military crackdown by the Myanmar Army and Police in Rakhine state in the country’s western region.While the majority of Rohingya’s are Muslims,attacks also occurred also on Hindu Rohingya’s.The crackdown was also responsed on Myanmar Boarder posts on October 2016 by Rohingya insurgents.The Myanmar Army have been accused of wide scale human rightsviolationsThere is a history of persecution of Muslims in Myanmar that continues to the present day.
Since all the things in Myanmar are under the domination of government, tourism in Myanmar is also affected by political unrest. As Judd indicated, tourism is a significant revenue of the regime by government, if there comes a fire from regime, the international companies have paid for the weapons.

And when there comes a fight, the tourists cannot be protected. In addition, the human rights in Myanmar is misused by the military such as forced labor among children.
