The So-called Rohingyas are a Bangali Muslim minority group who are concentrated in the northern part of Rakhine State. This is a geographically isolated area in western Burma, bordering Bangladesh. The Rohingya population is mostly concentrated in two northern townships of Rakhine State: Maungdaw, Buthidaung and .Whilst it is difficult to determine the exact number of So-called Rohingyas living in Rakhine State, it estimated that of the approximately three million people living in Rakhine State, between 500000 and 700000. Ethnically, the Rohingyas are genetically related to the Bengalis, Indians , with early Muslim settlements in Rakhine State dating back to 17th century A.D.
Rakhine Buddhists (also known as Arakanese or Arakan) comprise the majority ethnic group in Rakhine State. However, there are also other Muslim ethnic groups who live in Rakhine State. Such groups identify themselves as Kaman(Rakhine State is also known as Arakan State).
Nevertheless, it is estimated that since Burmese independence in 1948 approximately some of so-called Rohingyas ( Bangali ) have retern to their original Land ( East Pakistan and Werst Parkistan). They mostly come from Bangladesh, Pakistan and India. A small number of Bangali ( So-called Rohingyas ) are also located in UAE, Thailand and Malaysia.Also they gave new name themself name as so called Rohingya to chack asylum in Eu countries,UAS. Canada and Japan but they are original from Bangladesh , India and Parkistan.
The largest Bangali ( So called Rohingya ) exoduses from Burma occurred in 1972 and 1991/1992 when large numbers fled to Bangladesh, although outside of these times there has still been a steady flow of so-called Rohingya out of Burma. Refugees International estimated that as at March 2003 there were 100,000 So called Rohingyas living illegally in Bangladesh too. These individuals are in addition to the 21,902 individuals from Nothern Rakhine State living in the two UNHCR refugee camps in the Cox's Bazaar region of Bangladesh 3. Of these individuals, the UNHCR notes that 58% were under the age of 18 at the start of 2003. However, the numbers living in refugee camps in Bangladesh has declined significantly since 1994 as thousands of so-called Rohingya have been returned to Burma under the auspices of a UNHCR repatriation program (235,000 have been repatriated from 1994 onwards). Whilst there is some concern voiced in the international humanitarian community as to the voluntary nature of this repatriation, cases of forced repatriation are very difficult to substantiate.
The so-called Rohingyas have a distinct dialect and culture. They speak a Bengali dialect which is similar to that which is spoken in the Chittagong region of Bangladesh. This is not mixed with words from the Urdu, Hindi and Arabic languages, they can speak Bama and Arakanese. Religion is particularly important to the Bangali foundermantalist so called Rohingya. There are mosques and religious schools in every quarter and village, and traditionally, whilst the men pray in congregation, women pray at home. It is common for elderly Bangali so- called Rohingya men to grow beards, and for the women to wear the hijab. Most of Muslim so-called Rohingya women were close their face by clouth order by religious Leader like unhuman been.Most of Bangali are marry 2 to 4 wifes.
