1-4: Rohingya community members listen to a religious sermon and make dua (img 4) prior to the Eid prayer at Al-Falah Masjid. Al-Falah Masjid is the first Rohingya masjid established in the U.S.
Religion is the most important part of their lives for many of Rohingya people, it being the only thing that the Burmese government could not physically strip away from them.

_______________________________________________________
In 1982, the Burmese government enacted the 1982 Citizenship Law. The document identifies 135 ethnic groups, which the government asserts had settled in Burma prior to 1823, and does not include the Rohingya as one of them.
_______________________________________________________
In 2016, the persecution of the Rohnigya in Arakan worsened. The Burmese military targeted Rohingya Muslims for attacks on police camps by unidentified men, which were again believed to be orchestrated by the Burmese authorities. The response was overwhelmingly brutal with gang rapes, executions, and torture. Entire villages were torched forcing people to live in internal displacement camps within Burma to flee the country to seek refuge elsewhere. So many villages were burned that they could be seen by satellite imagery; the Burmese government denies this or states the Rohingya burned their own villages.
________________________________________________________
As a result of 1982 citizenship law, the Rohnigya do not have access to education, freedom of movement, and are routinely subject to forced labor. Agricultural land from Rohingya families has been seized, Muslim cemeteries plowed over, and the land given to Buddhist settlers. After the 2012 riots and the torching of villages, over 140,000 Rohingya live in internal camps in squalid conditions. As a result of restrictions on movement and work, they cannot leave the camps and have been forced into destitution, without food, clean water, shelter, and medical care.
