Letter from Paul Jeffreys – GBGM Missionary (Nov 2017)

For years the Rohingya minority in Myanmar has been one of the more persecuted groups in the world. Mostly Muslims in a country where Buddhist nationalism has taken a particularly virulent turn, they’ve been under constant assault. In late August, things got worse. In response to an attack on police posts by an armed Rohingya resistance group, the government of Myanmar launched a massive military assault on the Rohingya, employing classic scorched earth tactics: burning villages, raping women, slaughtering children. As a result, the Rohingya fled, and in just over two months more than 600,000 of them crossed into neighboring Bangladesh, creating one of the largest humanitarian crises in the world today.
