Rohingya women: The face of unspeakable horror


Having had their dignity compromised by the Myanmar security forces, more than a dozen Rohingya young women abandoned their niqab while sharing stories of murder and rape with Shafiur Rahman, an independent documentary maker

This story was originally published in February 2017. It is being republished in light of the recent conflict in Myanmar which has seen overwhelming casualties and forced displacement of the Rohingya people, which nations and media are calling a genocide.

The victims described to a UK-based film maker how they had been shamed and abused in front of their families and communities during the army’s four-month-long “clearance operations” in Rohingya-dominated Rakhine State.
