Tutu condemns Aung San Suu Kyi's silence

Suu Kyi has defended her government, saying critics of the military crackdown on the Rohingyas were being deceived by a "huge iceberg of misinformation".

Rohingya Muslims deserve justice, not hypocrisy.

Only smooth relations between the two sides can solve the many problems facing the country, including the current Rakhine conflict and more importantly, the peace process involving ethnic armed groups. "But as always, Canadians stand ready to help". Suu Kyi addressed a gathering stating, "I could not, as my father's daughter, remain indifferent to all that was going on". Her tepid response to the Rohingya crisis has tarnished a reputation built during the 15 years she spent under house arrest opposing military dictators in the country formerly known as Burma.

South Africa Renowned Archbishop Desmond Tutus' Letter to President Sung San Suu Kyi over Rohynga massacre.

Mr Tutu said that he had come out of retirement to make the comments because he was so deeply moved by the situation.

Some Rohingya Muslims are recorded to have been in Buddhist-majority Burma since the 12th century.

Suu Kyi, the de-facto leader of the country has come under increasing pressure to act from the worldwide community in recent weeks.

Her government also has pledged to implement some of the recommendations on Rakhine state made last month by an advisory commission led by former United Nations secretary general Kofi Annan.

"I have raised the plight of the Rohingya people 13 times in the Commons", Genuis said in a news release Thursday.

But Daw Aung San Suu Kyi can not afford to publicly criticize the military, which still has both seen and unseen power as the most established institution, with the experiences of coups in 1962 and 1988 and 50 years in power. As for Pakistan, the country that carried out the horrendous 1971 genocide in Bangladesh, it too expressed its deep concern to Myanmar on the "displacement" on the Rohingyas.

The number of Rohingya refugees who have fled from Burma to Bangladesh has surged to 270,000, the United Nations refugee agency said yesterday. This was in line with the government's indication to Parliament last month that all illegal immigrants, including the Rohingya, who number around 40,000, will be deported.

"Over the past three years more than 140,000 Rohingya Muslims have been living in grave conditions in refugee camps in Myanmar and in many other countries, including Indonesia", the Change.org petition explains. We have to take care of everybody who is in our country, whether or not they are our citizens.

Despite Aung San Suu Kyi defending her government's handling of the growing crisis, Tutu urged his fellow Nobel peace price victor to intervene. The final report calling for an end to violence and a review of the basic citizenship issue has been ignored.

The organisation that oversees the Nobel peace prize said Aung Sang Suu Kyi's 1991 prize can not be revoked.

Suu Kyi, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, receiving the award for "her non-violent struggle for democracy and human rights" while standing up against military rulers. However, as the undisputed NLD leader, she is Myanmar's de facto leader.
