Narendra Modi condemns attacks by Rohingya Muslims on Myanmar Army

NEW DELHI: Indian PM Narendra Modi condemned a series of coordinated attacks by suspected Rohingya militants on Myanmar troops and police on August 25, but did not comment on the subsequent violence against the Rohingya and their mass exodus.

Fleeing Rohingya accuse the security forces of mass killings and rapes and the burning of hundreds of villages.

Myanmar does not want its 1.1 million Rohingya, who are seen as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and are refused citizenship.

Successive regimes have historically discriminated against them even though many have lived for generations in Rakhine state.
