In 1978 general Ne Win`s socialist military dictatorship launched the first large-scale campaign against the Rohingya in Rakhine state with the intent first of expelling them from western Burma and subsequently legalizing the Rohingya group identity and legitimizing their physical destruction. This is on going process has continued to the present day under the civilian-military rule of president TheinSein`s government.
Since 2012, the Rohingya have been subjected to renew waves of hatred campaigns and accompanying violence, killing, burning, racial discriminating and ostracizing theseaims to destroy the Rohingya and to remove them from their ancestral land permanently in Rakhine state. Rohingya have been subjected to a process of slow- burning genocide over past 35 years.
