Chin refugee community in India

Myanmar’s stateless Chin endure refugee life in India. Threatened in Myanmar and unprotected in India.
Dear friends.
You may be aware that UNHCR has decided to withdraw its support to the Chin refugee community in India on the ground that there is no threat to ethnic minority community in Myanmar. The facts are different. Myanmar army is still controlling Chinland despite the so-called ceasefire. Nearly 80 percent of the Chin people are Christians.They are being forcefully converted to Buddhism. The people who have gone back are languishing in so-called “transit camps” controlled by the army. Their homes have been destroyed and the lands have been taken over by the government.
We request you to come to the press conference at the Women’s Press Corp on Friday, August 3, 2018 at 3 – 5 p.m.
The invitation to the Press Conference is attached.
Best regards
