Rohingya Refugee Rural Slum; Kutupalong, Bangladesh, Mar 2015

Taken on 2015-03-31

The Rohingya people are a Muslim minority group historically based in Rakhine state, Myanmar. The Rohingya people are considered “stateless entities”, as the Myanmar government has been refusing to recognise them as one of the ethnic groups of the country. To escape persecution and hostility, the Rohingya people have being fleeing Myanmar and Bangladesh in high numbers. From January to March in 2015, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 25,000 people have been taken to boats by human traffickers. There are claims that around 100 people died in Indonesia, 200 in Malaysia, and 10 in Thailand (see 2015 Wiki 'Rohingya Refugee Crisis' page for more information) Featured in this photo report are scenes of Rohingya refugees settled in rural slums around the UNCHR-government run camp of Kutupalong. Unlike the refugees settled in the UNCHR camp, who are entitled to shelter, food rations, access to school and health services, the unregistered refugees in the slum are considered illegal migrants and therefore don’t have access to any government or UN services.

Indian T-55 Tanks Advance in Support of Bangla Rebels, 1971

T-55 tanks in the Bangladesh Liberation War (Date Unknown). Wary of the growing involvement of India in the Bangladeshi rebel movement, the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) launched a pre-emptive strike on Indian Air Force bases on 3 December 1971. The attack was modelled on the Israeli Air Force's Operation Focus during the Six-Day War, and intended to neutralise the Indian Air Force planes on the ground. The strike was seen by India as an open act of unprovoked aggression. This marked the official start of the Indo-Pakistani War. As a response to the attack, both India and Pakistan formally acknowledged the "existence of a state of war between the two countries", even though neither government had formally issued a declaration of war.
