Suu Kyi has come under fire from the global community because of the latest atrocities targeting Muslims in Myanmar.
“My dear sister: If the political price of your ascension to the highest office in Myanmar is your silence, the price is surely too steep”, Tutu said.
She said there was “a lot of hostility” in the western state of Rakhine, where most of the Rohingya Muslims live.
More than 1,000 people gathered in an east London Islamic center to show solidarity with the Arakan Muslims, Friday evening.
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. “But as always, Canadians stand ready to help”. By the standards Aung San Suu Kyi came to symbolise, it is grotesque.
Such fake information has been fuelled by the Burmese government’s denial of access to Aung San Suu Kyi’s moral conscience.
Tutu’s September 7 letter came as the United Nations migration agency, the IOM and the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR both said that 270,000 people have fled violence in Myanmar to seek safety in Bangladesh in two weeks.
Nothing confirms the uselessness of organisations such as the OIC and the Muslim World League (Rabita) than the current crisis in Myanmar where supposedly meek and docile Buddhists are massacring unarmed, helpless Muslims.
The Liberal government have been facing increasing pressure, from the public and opposition MPs, to revoke Suu Kyi’s honorary citizenship status. Government forces retaliated with what they called “clearance operations”.
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.
The event “Rohingya Muslims: The Silent Genocide”, organized by the Muslim Association of Britain focused on the violence Rohingya Muslims are subjected to in Myanmar. The UN calls them one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. Moreover, Ms Suu Kyi has little authority over the army, which granted itself the right to regulate itself (and the police) before handing power to her civilian government.
Gatineau-based government relations and communications consultant Fareed Khan launched the petition on Monday. Even if Ms Suu Kyi can not rein in the army, she should at least denounce its behaviour, and make clear to ordinary Burmese the horrors it is unleashing in their name.
Mushaal Malik, the wife of Kashmiri leader Yasin Malik, also joined the protest to raise voice for the Muslims in Myanmar and Indian occupied Kashmir.
When an aid ship arrived in Myanmar earlier this year with food and emergency supplies bound for the troubled state of Rakhine, it was met with a small group of protesters bearing the sign “No Rohingya”.
“The violence must end now”.
“It’s not a time to condemn by releasing statements and mentioning their concern”, said Khin.
An online petition calling for the revocation of Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi’s 1991 Nobel Peace Prize has accrued 366,000 signatures, PressTV reported.
India has stood by Suu Kyi despite growing worldwide pressure.
Dear Aung San Suu Kyi, we loved you, it’s for this very love and respect that I urge you to save Rohingya Muslims.because if this becomes another Armenian genocide than history won’t forgive you. In 2015, she led her party to a majority win.
