The Stateless Rohingya, the website is a platform run from Republic of Ireland which aims to provide authentic, important and day-to-day news on the plight of Rohingya by bringing news articles, Rohingya and non-Rohingya authors’ opinions and various media together. Its main objective is to make the world awaken on the matters of Rohingya who are being forced from being ‘Natives of Arakan’ to ‘Statelessness‘.
The motivation behind the launching of www.thestateless.com came in 2012 when Burmese government and Rakhine extremist groups setup ethnic cleansing programme against the stateless people of Arakan, Rohingya. It was extremely important time to forward and share the truth behind the scenes of the ethnic cleansing programme to the global audience and well-wishers of the stateless Rohingya.
Rohingya are a native ethnic Muslim minority from Arakan, a western state of Burma, living many centuries. Before Rohingya were forced to become the stateless in own soil, they have encountered many operations of dehumanization from various Burmese governments starting in 1963 up to now. Rohingya have lost their history, nationality, dignity, home, land, property and face various human rights abuses such as restrictions on religion, marriage, education, travel, arbitrary taxation, arrest, rape, etc..
2012 becomes the greatest disaster for Rohingya as Rakhine extremists and government forces launched the grass-root killings of Rohingya throughout Arakan making hundred thousands displaced, killed and missing, while the international community has been silently neglecting the suffering state of Rohingya.
