Sam Naeem - Burma

Sam Naeem


Sam Naeem, also known as Khin Maung Myint, is a Rohingya human rights defender and Muslim interfaith activist.

The rising violence against Rohingya communities in northern Myanmar and the Muslim population since August 2017 endangers Rohingya and Muslim HRDs, while community leaders staging interfaith dialogues face arrest and charges. Despite efforts to move the national peace process forward, fighting between the army and ethnic armed groups escalated in northern Myanmar, endangering HRDs working in the area. Impunity persists for past and ongoing human rights violations.
