A month has already passed since the influx of Rohingyas from Myanmar began. Till date, more than 570,000 Rohingyas have fled from the violence in Rakhine state into Bangladesh. UN has already termed the violence a textbook example of ethnic cleansing of ‘the world’s fastest-developing refugee emergency’ and a ‘humanitarian nightmare for humanitarian activities.’
