A Rohingya man has been seriously injured after falling from an under construction building in Kuala Lampur of Malaysia.
27 year Md Sharif is an illegal immigrant in the country. Sharif’s accident, that is likely to result in death highlights the dangers faced by Rohingya refugees in this country where they have migrated to escape religious persecution in Arakan state.
Considered a safe haven by many Rohingyas, refugees in Malaysia say they have to work in dangerous conditions. Added to that is the vigilance of Malaysian police that look to arrest illegal workers. Altogether refugees say life in Malaysia is hard.
Meanwhile last week , another Malaysian politician Mukhriz Mahathir has called for punitive measures against Burma for the on going persecution of Rohingyas.
