Nobel institute: Myanmar leader can't be stripped of prize

'We know that you know that human beings may look and worship differently - and some may have greater firepower than others - but none are superior and none inferior. "We pray for you to intervene in the escalating crisis and guide your people back towards the path of righteousness", Desmond Tutu said.

The United Nations says about 270,000 people have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar's Rakhine state in the past two weeks, after a group calling itself the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army attacked several police posts.

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". Like many of her admirers, I was also hoping that she would rise against all odds and establish the fact that humanity would flourish.

Unlike him, most critics have shortsighted views without seeing the bigger picture, which is that the government and the military need to have good relations for the long-term benefit of the country.

Although Suu Kyi has been somewhat subdued on the Rohingya situation since her National League for Democracy won an election two years ago, she said Thursday that her government would protect all residents.

India has stood by Suu Kyi despite growing global pressure. "The situation in Rakhine has been such since many decades", she said. The latest bloodshed has resulted in 146,000 people fleeing the area, mostly into neighbouring Bangladesh. This has made it more hard to handle the plight of the increasing number of persecuted Rohingya.

The photographs sparked controversy on social media with many people who identified themselves as Myanmar Muslims saying they appeared staged.

"Her action shows that she is cruel and inhumane".

His letter implies disappointment with how quickly Suu Kyi had gone from formerly imprisoned and celebrated political leader to a silent bystander as de facto head of state.

"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. She has even asked the US Ambassador to Myanmar not to use the term 'Rohingya'. Her speaking out against the military would only backfire.

In her Nobel Lecture, she had said: "Wherever suffering is ignored, there will be the seeds for conflict". So, no one should be surprised that after taking over power, she is an active party to the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Muslims. In their hunt for the militants, the distribution of food, shelter and much-needed materials has been stopped. He called Suu Kyi out by name, as well as Trudeau for failing to stop the violence.

I still want to believe in her greatness.

She is one of six people who have ever received honorary Canadian citizenship. None other than 1991 Nobel Peace Prize victor Aung San Suu Kyi, who also happens to be one of Canada's six honorary citizens. This number surpasses the total number of Rohingya who had escaped Myanmar following a smaller insurgent attack last October.

In September previous year, an open letter signed by multiple Nobel Peace laureates, including Archbishop Tutu, warned Suu Kyi of "potential for genocide" in the region.
