Aung San Suu Kyi To Explain The World About Myanmar’s Rohingya Crisis In TV Address
Myanmar leader, a Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is learned to be breaking silence on the Rohingya crisis, and probably in a live TV address.
Since August 25 communal violence in the country has torn through Rakhine state. Hundreds of people have lost their lives and over 410,000 stateless Rohingya minority have fled to neighboring Bangladesh.
Until now she has refused to talk about the crisis and also to publicly urge restraint from the military even after huge international pressure.
The 72-year-old was once considered as the champion of democracy struggle in the country. Her supporters say she lacks the power to pull in the army as she is having a power-sharing arrangement.
She even had skipped the recent UN General Assembly meet in New York to prepare for the TV address and manage crisis at home.
Meanwhile, the United Nations has accused the army of ethnic cleansing, but Myanmar label the Rohingya as extremist Bengali terrorists.
Apart from the Rohingya Muslims, about 30,000 ethnic Rakhine Buddhists and Hindu too have been displaced after the August 25 violence and attacks by the Arakan Rohingya Salavation Army (ARSA).
One of her supporters said, “Western countries and the UN think that her government is badly treating the Bengali people. But there are a lot of Buddhist and Hindu people who have been killed by the terrorists. The world needs to understand this.”http://www.dailynewsz.com/aung-san-suu-kyi-to-explain-the-world-about-myanmars-rohingya-crisis-in-tv-address/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Aung-San-Suu-Kyi-To-Explain-The-World-About-Myanmars-Rohingya-Crisis-In-TV-Address.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Aung-San-Suu-Kyi-To-Explain-The-World-About-Myanmars-Rohingya-Crisis-In-TV-Address-300x300.jpgworld newsAung San Suu Kyi,myanmar,Rohingya
