380k sign pro-Rohingya petition to strip Suu Kyi of Nobel prize

11 Septembre 2017

Why does the world do nothing for the Rohingya? Obama made two trips to the country, and previous year his administration lifted the remaining economic sanctions, including on the import of jade and rubies.

Suu Kyi seems to have a phobia about Islam. Though they have been resident in Myanmar since the ninth century, because of their religion the Rohingya were called "foreigners" by the military junta, which revoked their citizenship.

Since becoming Burma's leader a year ago, Ms Suu Kyi has been widely accused of failing to halt violence against the Rohingya.

The actions of the Myanmar security services against the Rohingya minority in the northern state of Rakhine is "state-sanctioned terror", which is being carried out by the government of Aung San Suu Kyi with the backing of the U.S., global lawyer Barry Grossman told Iran's Press TV.

Rahimi Jahan-Abadi emphasized that the worldwide community will have to pay a heavy price if it remains silent towards the massacre of Muslims in Myanmar and added the least price that the world has to pay is the creation of ISIS in Eastern Asia.

In another protest, a group of leading writers and poets from the twin cities also gathered at the National Press Club and chanted slogans against the massacre of Rohingyas.

"Here she is silent and she is not accepting that her government is responsible for this genocide".

She has referred to the Rohingya only as a "terrorist problem" - and while they do have violent militias that commit crimes, they are no different from the militias of those other ethnic groups.

We are past the point at which we can continue to look at Suu Kyi's noble past as some sort of apology for her behaviour today.

In one exchange in the House before summer break, Liberal MP Omar Alghabra touted the government's record of commenting on Myanmar's ongoing crisis where and when necessary. To spare the Rohingyas further suffering, such sanctions should be deployed again.

"Our government has never missed an opportunity to raise our concerns with the Burmese government, whether with the president, with Aung San Suu Kyi, or with the commander and chief", Alghabra said in May.

All but cut off from the world during the years of her house arrest, Suu Kyi was a steely, enigmatic symbol whose political inclinations - beyond ending the army's kleptocratic rule - were not well known.

"We are so anxious and concerned about what's taking place in Myanmar against the most persecuted minority in the world", Executive Director of CAIR, Nihad Awad said.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the government was deeply concerned by the escalating violence in Rakhine state.

The medical and non-medical employees at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) have demanded that the government allow them to send medical teams to Myanmar so that they can treat the Rohingya Muslims fleeing state persecution in the Rakhine state.

"They, (Myanmar) are judging and would they like to be judged based on skin color and ethnicity".

"The violence must end now". According to UNHCR, Rohingyas are relocated in the country in Jammu, Mewat district of Haryana, Delhi, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Chennai.

"She was the person who got the Nobel Peace Prize for standing up for the rights of humans", Mr Mohideen said.

Speaking to Fairfax Media from Dhaka, Professor Yunus urged his fellow laureate to start responding like the bold leader the world had once applauded, as opposed to the politician surrounded by advisors that she had become.
