Children of Rohingya Muslims, who are currently staying in the camps alongside Bangladesh's border with Myanmar after fleeing their country due to violence against them by Myanmar security forces, are studying under difficult conditions to become hafiz.

Despite facing the facts of life without a proper roof over their head, Rohingya Muslims who are trying to survive with the help of relief organizations, are very keen to receive religious education for their children.

Rohingya Muslims' children are studying hard by candle light at shanty madrassah to become hafiz, a person who memorizes holy book of Qur'an.

Infants of six up to ten years old are having education in Kutupalong camp.

While a great number of infants are trying to learn how to read Muslims' holy book of Qur'an, several others are having higher education to become hafiz.

On the other hand, families of children are renewing their demands on having more international assistance to survive.

According to the official data, population of Myanmar is 55 million and 90 percent of it is formed by Buddhists and 10 percent of it is formed by Muslims. Number of Rohingya Muslims differs from 800,000 to 2 million in the Arakan region in the West of Myanmar, close to the Bangladesh border.

Rohingya Muslims had forced to move to the camps alongside Bangladesh's border with Myanmar after having violence by Myanmar officals.
