Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “In Pakistan, tens of thousands of Rohingya struggle for basic rights” – below is their description.

Many Rohingya who fled violence in Myanmar say their rights are being ignored in the countries where they have sought refuge.

Thousands of Rohingya were forced to leave Myanmar to flee a military crackdown against their ethnic group in 2017.

In spite of having lived in countries like Pakistan for generations, the Rohingya are largely treated like undocumented immigrants.

Al Jazeera’s Osama Bin Javaid met some Rohingya in Karachi, Pakistan where tens of thousands live.
