The owners of the houses, like other thousands of Rohingya in 2017 were chased out of their own villages and to save their lives they had to cross over to neighboring Bangladesh.
Since 25th August 2017, more than 300 Rohingya villages were torched down to ashes and many hundreds were torched partially.
Even after expelling nearly 1.3 million Rohingya to the makeshift camps in Bangladesh from 2016, Burmese government’s genocidal operations still persists on the remaining Rohingya as a punishment for staying on their own ancestral land.
