The focus of the world today is to Aung San Suu Kyi who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for her democracy struggle when he was under house arrest by the Myanmar Junta. However, the massacre of the Rohingya Muslims disappointed the world as Aung San Suu Kyi’s succeeded a landslide victory in the general election in 2015 and appointed the de facto leader, she has failed to provide defense either in her assertions and what more when actions are in dire need.
The reasons given by Aung San Suu Kyi are very strange as if it were a reflection of the situation in Rakhine that was not as bad as the international media described. For Suu Kyi, the actions of the Myanmar army to strike are because their soldiers have been attacked by the Rohingya Islamic clan and it is merely a counter-attack and the army are in self-defence.
Suu Kyi has also given the impression that she should not be charged with the mass killing of Rohingya Muslims since she is not the President of Myanmar even though his party won a landslide victory. Even so, Myanmar remains controlled and ruled by Junta armies.
Whatever is going on in the Myanmar government, Suu Kyi has forgotten that the Nobel Peace Prize is an award for her role in the struggle for the defence of peace and human rights for the Myanmar people. For this reason, the world is now questioning her sincerity and seriousness as she has remained conspicuously silent and blinded her eyes when the Muslim Rohingya are oppressed, tortured, expelled, massacred and least acceptable to the world when their citizenships are not recognized by Myanmar.
When the people of Rohingya have fled en masse from their settlements in Southern Myanmar to the refugee camps at the border of Bangladesh and is now said to be more than 120,000 refugees, it is not because they object to the Myanmar government but their lives are at risk. When the Rohingyas escaped from their settlement in southern Myanmar to refugee camps on the border of Bangladesh and are now said to be more than 120,000 refugees, it is not because they object to the Myanmar government but their lives are at risk of being killed.
While at the end of last year, several Nobel laureates signed an open letter to the President and Security Council members warning of the potential genocide, there are these laureates blamed Suu Kyi and demanded her prize be revoked, but Suu Kyi continues to retain the Myanmar soldiers’ unjust actions.
Unless and until the U.N. Security Council stands firmly with their resolution on the crisis and either China or Russia would not abuse their position as permanent members of the council to avert the censure, such humanitarian catastrophe can be stopped. Not only the neighbouring borders could be stabilised but above all Myanmar will resume with their ethnic cleansing on Muslim Rohingyas.
