AsSalamu Alaykum,

The Myanmar government has repeatedly demonstrated its unwillingness to restore citizenship to over a million Rohingya Muslims. Without citizenship, basic rights to security, property, and livelihood are effectively non-existent.


Rohingya refugees will not simply return to a situation in which their very lives are in jeopardy because of ethnic and religious hate that is directed at them. The legal guarantees and civil protections of citizenship must be part of any real repatriation agreement.
