D ilara Begum could tell you a story few in the West know. A member of the Muslim Rohingya minority, she has fled to Bangladesh after reportedly being tortured by the army. The Myanmar government of Aung San Suu Kyi this week stood accused of legitimising genocide, and allowing the continued persecution of the Rohingya people.
Researchers at Queen Mary University in London say they have found evidence of massacres, torture, and sexual violence, and have said that whatever might have changed in Myanmar over the last 10 years, the Rohingya remain an oppressed and terrorised minority. Making matters worse, is the fact that Bangladesh is proving a less than willing recipient of those fleeing the persecution. In recent months authorities have stepped up border patrols, and either turned away or sent back many of those trying to cross.
