They have survived rape and the slaughter of their families. Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya girls and women fled Myanmar to escape a military crackdown.

In Bangladesh’s refugee camps they thought they would be safe. But inside the tents that house almost a million Rohingya refugees, women and girls are being bought, sold and given away.

Girls are being forced into marriage because relatives can’t afford to feed them, or are being lured to brothels with the promise of good jobs. We investigate the dangers still facing Rohingya women, and meet the people seeking to exploit them.

In Islamic law, the girl has a voice. She can go against the marriage is she wants to. However, if she does not speak they take the silence as a no. And if the girl isn't a virgin or something (U don't remember it properly… Sorry) she has to be married or something…

I'm not exactly sure, but she does have a say.

You come and you settle in someone else's home and then after a few years you start demanding that home. How justified is this?…. Rohingyas are responsible for whatever is happening with them.
