Why the si­lence on Ro­hingya slaugh­ter?

The Mercury - - OPINION -

AUNG San Suu Kyi who is a No­bel peace (prize) win­ner is ghastly silent over the on­go­ing slaugh­ter of Ro­hingyas in Myan­mar’s Rakhine state and the sit­u­a­tion is wors­en­ing with no so­lu­tion in sight.

Where are the world lead­ers? Where is the UN? Why are they all dead silent and fail­ing to take bold steps to stop the slaugh­ter of Ro­hingya Mus­lims?

It re­ally puz­zles me that Suu Kyi speaks highly of demo­cratic ideals, and yet, there is dead si­lence from her.

Would not her si­lence mean that she sup­ports the Ro­hingya Mus­lims mas­sacre?

What other ex­pla­na­tion can there be?

If that is the rea­son, Suu Kyi, should re­turn her No­bel peace prize as she does not de­serve it – she is not wor­thy of such an hon­our.
