Aung San Suu Kyi -- Silence to Genocide?

Aung San Suu Kyi -- Silence to Genocide?

Commented Apr 10, 2013 at 14:00:42 in World

“It is not fair to say she has been in silence over these issues while you are not so sure if she has already said something or not. In fact, she already spoke to end violences in central Myanmar on both side since the second day that three days riot. The journalists asked her questions after the parliament session and she replied in Burmese language with 15 minutes long discussion over these issues. So my suggestion to the author is do the research before writing a critique.”

“She is cited as being silent on the genocide by the "Democratic Voice of Burma" and at all times when I have heard her answer the question on Rohingya, Muslim minority, Kachin, Karen or poor Burmese rural farmers fighting China mining conglomerate, her response has fallen short of that at I would expect of Nobel Peace Prize winner and anointed champion of democracy in Myanmar. You may have different and lower expectations or see it as too complicated, but this is not about "violence on both sides" but a campaign of exclusion, dis-empowerment and systematic targeting of many "sides" on basis of ethnicity, religion and/or socio-economic standing. Violence then comes not as mere coincidence but intended outcome.”
