Who are the Rohingya?

The Rohingya are an ethnic Muslim minority who practice a Sufi-inflected variation of Sunni Islam. There are an estimated 3.5 million Rohingya dispersed worldwide. Before August 2017, the majority of the estimated one million Rohingya in Myanmar resided in Rakhine State, where they accounted for nearly a third of the population. They differ from Myanmar’s dominant Buddhist groups ethnically, linguistically, and religiously.

The Rohingya trace their origins in the region to the fifteenth century, when thousands of Muslims came to the former Arakan Kingdom. Many others arrived during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when Rakhine was governed by colonial rule as part of British India. Since independence in 1948, successive governments in Burma, renamed Myanmar in 1989, have refuted the Rohingya’s historical claims and denied the group recognition as one of the country’s 135 official groups. The Rohingya are considered illegal immigrants from Bangladesh, even though many trace their roots in Myanmar back centuries.

The government refuses to grant the Rohingya citizenship, and as a result most of the group’s members have no legal documentation, effectively making them stateless.

 

Discriminatory policies of Myanmar’s government since the late 1970s have compelled hundreds of thousands of Muslim Rohingya to flee their homes in the predominantly Buddhist country. Most have crossed by land into Bangladesh, while others have taken to the sea to reach Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.

Beginning in 2017, renewed violence, including reported rape, murder, and arson, triggered an exodus of Rohingya amid charges of ethnic cleansing against Myanmar’s security forces. Those forces claim they are carrying out a campaign to reinstate stability in the western region of Myanmar, but international pressure on the country’s elected leaders to rein in violence continues to rise.

 

Dengue Fever paragraph

 

Dengue is a viral fever transmitted through mosquito bites. The “Aedes” mosquito is the culprit. The disease is very prevalent in tropical countries like ours. Dengue is characterized by sustained high-grade fever, pain around, inside or behind the eyes, nausea and vomiting, abdominal discomfort, Diarrhea, muscle aches and measles-like red rashes all over the body. There are two types of dengue – classic dengue and dengue hemorrhagic. In the first type of dengue recovery is most likely to occur more quickly. But in the second type a decrease in platelet count can result in bleeding, organ failure, and even death. There are no vaccines against dengue. That’s why prevention is crucial. The vector “Aedes” mosquito breeds in stagnant fresh water and rainwater. So, we must be vigilant in keeping our household areas clean. We must not allow water to stagnate in flowerpots, vases, tires and puddles. Besides, we must protect ourselves from mosquito-bites. So, we should always wear protective clothing like pants, long sleeves, and socks. We have to use mosquito nets and mosquito-repellant. Above all, we must consult a doctor if any fever persists for days.
