Summary: More than half of all Rohingyas live outside Myanmar’s Rakhine state. Their language, stretching back more than a thousand years, should be taught to all Rohingyas beginning in primary school, says Mohammed Amin Nadwi, who teaches at Jamiya Turas al-Islamiya (the University of Islamic Heritage) in Karachi, Pakistan. Otherwise, future Rohingyas will lose their identity, Nadwi says. Second of two parts in a look at Rohingya language.

Topic: Making a pitch for supporting football in Rohingya camps.
Translation summary: Playing football is a welcome diversion for some Rohingya youths living in camps, but two of them in Kutupalong Camp 1-W say there aren’t enough fields or funders to meet the demand.
Nur Kalim, an 18-year-old from Naichapuru village in Maungdaw district, plays for the team Shining Star. He and his teammates tried fundraising, but they couldn’t collect enough money to buy jerseys and shoes.
Mohammed Sadek, 22, is the founding captain of the team Royal City. The RCs raised enough money from Rohingya shopkeepers and other supporters to provide the team’s 22 members with a month’s worth of training late last year. But Sadek, who comes from Fokira Bazar in Myanmar’s Maungdaw district, wishes there were more support so players could have better jerseys and shoes, along with more places to play.
