Thousands of Muslims from Rohingya minority group have been forced to leave Myanmar after being persecuted by the government of the country.
Myanmar denies citizenship to most of the 1.3 million Rohingyas, placing restrictions on their movement, marriages, and economic opportunities. According to the United Nations, Rohingya Muslims are one of the most persecuted minorities in the world.
Meanwhile, many of these Muslims, who have to leave their country, either go missing during their mass exodus in the perilous seas or face mistreatment of destination countries such as Thailand or Malaysia in case of reaching these countries.
In this edition of The Debate, Press TV has conducted an interview with Ibrahim Moussawi, political commentator from Beirut, and Lawrence J. Korb, foreign policy and national security analyst from Washington, to see what kind of fate is awaiting these stateless people.
