More International Pressure on Aung San Suu Kyi to End Rohingya Misery

Malaysian writers call for witdrawal of Nobel prize from Suu Kyi over violence against Rohingya

On Tuesday the UNHCR the UN’s refugee agency said it was ‘gravely concerned’ about the continuing conflict and reports that civilians had died seeking safety. The UN on Monday also said that its aid agencies had been blocked from supplying life-sa

By 2013 Human Rights Watch was already protesting ethnic cleansing and large numbers had fled to Bangladesh.

Global organisations have condemned the "ethnic cleansing" and "cenocide" taking place in Myanmar troops and Buddhist mobs against Muslim minority group, the Rohingya. "It goes back to pre-colonial times". Not that they ever cared to try.

In 2012, on the eve of receiving Nobel Peace Prize, Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi said, "Ultimately our aim should be to create a world free from the displaced, the homeless and the hopeless, a world of which each and every corner is a true sanctuary where the inhabitants will have the freedom and the capacity to live in peace".

Within a few hours of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi's meeting with Kofi Annan and his commission members on August 24, the State Counselor's Office released a statement saying: "As an immediate step, the government will form a new Ministerial-led committee responsible for the implementation of the commission's recommendations".

And "ethnic cleansing" may be an understatement.

She has already proved that if one has an unwavering resolve and is geared up to face any difficulty to achieve their goals - sooner or later, the results will be positive. The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has also warned that a genocide against the Rohingya may be looming.

In June, Suu Kyi travelled to Ottawa and met with Trudeau.

Anisul Mostafa, 40, who fled with his family after the military destroyed his house, said of Suu Kyi: "We thought our distress would be over once she took power". "They're killing children", Mr Matthew Smith, chief executive of a human rights group called Fortify Rights, told me after interviewing refugees on the Bangladesh border.

At a Mindanao business conference, Mr. Duterte said "human rights activists with all the hullaballoo" should look instead the Rohingya who are being brutalized in Myanmar and the Nobel laureate who was not doing anything about it.

Asked if Canada would welcome asylum claims from Rohingya Muslims, the prime minister reiterated a familiar welcoming message. "One was six years old and the other was nine". Recent reports have suggested that around 290,000 Rohingya have now fled Myanmar after violence erupted in Rakhine state.

Patel also questioned the value of Suu Kyi's honorary Canadian citizenship.

"I certainly don't think it's illegitimate to ask that she be more vocal in her compassion for this really beleaguered population, but she inherited an absolutely bad situation of Rakhine State", he said.

The situation in Myanmar, formerly Burma, regarding the Rohingya Muslim minority is deeply troubling. This means that the civilian leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, and her National League for Democracy party, must offer a higher moral alternative to young people than that promoted by Buddhist nationalists. "Now that she's in power, she symbolises cowardly complicity in the deadly tyranny being visited on the Rohingya".

Myanmar tries to keep foreigners out of the Rohingya areas, but I've managed to get there twice in the last few years, and, even then, Rohingya were confined to concentration camps or to remote villages. It's a 21st-century apartheid.

The 85-year-old also warned that the effect of her ignorance to the massacre was "too steep".

During that discussion, she brushed aside criticism over her role: "I've made it very clear that our work is not to condemn but to achieve reconciliation".

"This might be from both sides but it would be heavily concentrated on the Rohingya population". Suu Kyi, according to BBC Myanmar correspondent Jonah Foster, shares a strong dislike of journalists with President Trump. A basic lesson of history: Ignoring a possible genocide only encourages the persecutors.

More than 386,000 people have signed a petition on Change.org, calling for Suu Kyi's Peace Prize to be stripped from her due to the persecution of her country's Rohingya Muslim minority. Like me, many people are hoping that Suu Kyi will eventually realise and address the inhuman treatment towards the Rohingya community and will take preventive measures to stop this unacceptable violence against humanity.
