    Mohammad Rakibul Hasan

The Myanmar government had taken a scorched earth policy to remove the whole Rohingya community from Myanmar. In 2017, they started killing Rohingyas, burnt their houses, looted their belongings and raped many women who later delivered unwanted child in refugee camps in Bangladesh. It was a horrific situation that the Army conducted on Rohingya community. These women are now in traumatic situation but are brave enough to unfold their identities to the world so that the world can stand beside them, and they achieve justice.
