THE ROHINGYAS

INSIDE MYANMAR’S HIDDEN GENOCIDE

01 December 2017

Azeem Ibrahim

Azeem Ibrahim’s timely book shows how the current condition of the Rohingya community can be traced to the biases and structural discrimination embedded in the newly democratic Burmese state led by Aung Sang Suu Kyi. The international media has, until recently, largely portrayed Suu Kyi and the democratic movement in Burma as a moral battle against the brutality of Myanmar’s earlier military regime. Ibrahim’s book, however, exposes the violent underbelly of the reforming state.
