“I am not a human rights defender.”
Aung San Suu Kyi, CNN, 28 Oct 2013
Just a self-serving politician with no actionable compassion or wisdom?
May be Schizophrenia, not sure but she is definitely suffering from Megalomania, Islamo-phobia and Stockholm syndrome. Read here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stockholm_syndrome
“It is a great honour to be chosen as a champion for people who live on the fringes of society and struggle every day to maintain their dignity and basic human rights. I would like to be the voice of the voiceless.”
Aung San Suu Kyi, 20 November 2012
Please read my article in Burma Digest using the Pseudonym SHWE BA and shared in my San Oo Aung blog
Once upon a time, long long time ago, there was a village in a far away remote area of Burma called, let’s say, Shwe Bama village. Because of the constant disturbances of the wild beast, the villagers were wishing, praying and waiting for a hero to fight and kill the beast and to liberate them.
One day a prince came to the village and offered his self-less humanitarian voluntary service for the liberation of the village. The prince fought and successfully killed the beast, so the villagers thanked him and offered all the rewards including the right to rule their village. But later the kindhearted, handsome and noble prince surprisingly disappeared from the village. Worse of all, there also suddenly appeared a new ogre (giant) in the forest near the village. So the villagers were very sad and just prayed and wished for another warrior to help them.

I never thought I would write this, but Aung San Suu Kyi sent a shiver down my spine when she appeared on the Today programme this morning. Her equivocal attitude towards the violence suffered by Burma’s Muslim minority was deeply disturbing.
José Maurício Bustani, the first director general of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) should also be given Noble Peace Prize.
Last month, the local Burmese authorities in Arakan State banned Rohingya Muslims from having more than two children and one wife. Officials in the western state, where hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced by ethnic conflict, decided to revive the long-dormant restriction and reaffirm it in response to the current political situation.

Press Release – Nobel Women’s Initiative: Nobel Peace Laureates call for end to violence against Muslims in Burma
June 20, 2013 (Ottawa)—Twelve Nobel Peace laureates—including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Shirin Ebadi, Muhammad Yunus, Tawakkol Karman and Jody Williams—today called for an immediate end to the violence against Muslims and other ethnic minorities in Burma.
Myanmar’s political reform programme was just a year gone when old animosities came to the surface. In May and October last year, Buddhist mobs went on a rampage in Myanmar’s western Rakhine State, burning Muslim homes and displacing more than 125,000 people. As if that was not enough, anti-Muslim riots broke out in the central town of Meiktila in March this year.
