Politicians turn critical toward Nobel recipient Suu Kyi

Politicians turn critical toward Nobel recipient Suu Kyi

"We told her story for 25 years and we don't like who she actually is". According to BJP, it is hard for the West Bengal government to identify Rohingya immigrants as they do not want to arrest them as they too indulge in terrorist activities.

Pressure is mounting on Myanmar to end violence that has sent more than 300,000 Muslims fleeing to Bangladesh, with the U.S. calling for the protection of civilians and Bangladesh seeking worldwide help to handle the crisis. Wirathu praised Ms Suu Kyi as the "mother of the nation" and told me she had visited his monastery in the northern city of Mandalay shortly after her release in 2010.

Two years ago she and her party, the National League for Democracy, swept into power in the country's first truly democratic elections in a quarter of a century-but with a few caveats. Even now, when I watch the biographical movie, "The Lady", I feel rejuvenated enough to hail this victory of humanity.

Tens of thousands more are believed to be on the move inside Rakhine, fleeing burning villages, the army and ethnic Rakhine mobs - who Rohingya refugees accuse of attacking civilians - only to become stranded in hills without food, water, shelter or medical care. A large number of their houses have been burnt and around 30,000 Rohingyas have been displaced internally and thousands have tried to flee to neighbouring countries.

But many ignore or play down the political system in Myanmar. Never have so many people and organisations representing world conscience turned red in the face because of the behavior of a person whom they had once adored, endorsed and praised for championing the cause of human rights and dignity.

Meanwhile, President Rodrigo Duterte slammed his critics anew and encouraged them to slam Suu Kyi instead for her inaction at the human rights violations in her country. Recent reports have suggested that around 290,000 Rohingya have now fled Myanmar after violence erupted in Rakhine state.

Protests against the treatment of the Rohingya were held in several countries, including Muslim-majority Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia. That's why they do not want to arrest the illegal Rohingya immigrants of Myanmar. This indicates that she is following the citizenship law imposed by the military junta in 1982, which didn't consider the Rohingya as citizens of Myanmar.

Vikings CB Tramaine Brock inactive for season opener
The Broncos has a star-studded roster including arguably the best defensive player in the National Football League in Von Miller. Peterson finished with just 18 yards on six carries, coming out of the game on most third downs as he did in Minnesota.

Eventually, Del Potro's flat, fearsome forehand became less unsafe , as if he suddenly remembered just how tired he was. And not simply because Federer owns a record 19 Grand Slam men's singles titles, five at the U.S.


Andres Muschietti's IT adaptation doesn't let Stephen King's much-loved novel down
Without the adults adding the thematic side of things, this is just a film about a creepy clown that jumps out at people. I think if you ask anyone what they think of clowns, (clowns are) as much fear as they are jolly, amusing characters.


In a statement Rasheed said that there are no comparisons between the two conflicts.

Dean, the other contributor on the panel, said that the Rohingya Muslims are "on the bottom of the barrel", and are "one of the most abused groups of people in the world".

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. He called Suu Kyi out by name, as well as Trudeau for failing to stop the violence.

Tutu, a Nobel peace prize victor, urged his fellow laureate to intervene, despite her recent defence of her military's actions.

When asked whether or not his government would take back Canada's special recognition of Suu Kyi on Thursday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau skirted the question by calling the humanitarian situation "terrible" and "extremely preoccupying".

Suu Kyi's Ministry of Information mouthpiece - the Global Light of Myanmar - observed recently: "The Thorn Needs Removing If It Pierces", implicitly supporting the actions of the armed forces, while remaining ambiguous on whether or not the "thorn" was a symbol for all Rohingya or just the insurgents.
