Since 2009, Bangladeshi photographer Saiful Huq Omi has been documenting the lives of the Muslim ethnic minority, generally known as the Rohingyas, who live in northern Rakhine State, western Burma (Myanmar). 

Considered to be one of the most persecuted population group in the world, the Rohingya's are the only of 136 different communities not recognized by the Burmese government. They face every kind of human rights violation: denial of citizenship, restriction of movement or travel, restriction on education, forced labour, land confiscation, forced eviction, destruction of homes, schools, mosques, religious persecution, ethnic discrimination, abuse of Rohingya women and elders, rape as a weapon of war... 

To many, what is happening to this community in Burma (Myanmar) is nothing but a slow burning genocide.
