Duterte slams rights group about Rohingya Muslims

Critics Circle Aung San Suu Kyi Over Rohingya Crisis

Additionally, over 120 000 Rohingya Muslims have fled to Bangladesh.

Mohamed Mohideen from the Islamic Council of Victoria called on Suu Kyi to act.

The world has responded by zooming in from that orbital distance to Myanmar's capital and the woman who became the country's political leader past year after spending decades leading the struggle against the military dictatorship.

He said they were hiding from the Myanmar military in the jungle, but it wasn't safe for them to return to their homes.

After leading her National League of Democracy party to an overwhelming win in 2015 parliamentary elections - and then devising the powerful post of State Counselor to bypass a law that prevented her from becoming president - Suu Kyi faced tremendous expectations in turning around one of Asia's poorest countries, one still wracked by several long-running insurgencies.

Messi offside for opening Barcelona goal v Espanyol
Set up Messi's first goal (and Pique's), nearly scored a brilliant goal of his own and drove forward from midfield time and again. Espanyol almost pulled a goal back just before the break when Pablo Piatti rattled the upright from the edge of the box.

From that tight focal length, Ms. Suu Kyi's silence seems incomprehensible. Various global forces are reacting differently to the latest of the persisting Rohingya crisis.

"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.

The Rohingya have always been subjected to discrimination in mostly Buddhist Myanmar, which regards them as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh and denies them citizenship even if they have lived in the country for generations.

Yet now, her silence in the face of the persecution of the Rohingya Muslim minority has turned to open endorsement of the latest military crackdown while denying, as misinformation, its violence and carnage. "The narrative is that Muslims are migrants".

Protests have popped around the world over the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar. Since the democratic transition began, Western journalists increasingly needled her on the Rohingya issue, and Suu Kyi began to flash annoyance in interviews. They particularly stepped the vicious campaign since August 25. The human right group has called for re-imposition of sanctions targeting Myanmar's military officials. During the past week, that orange streak has grown larger and brighter, and daytime images have shown why: Countless villages and towns in the northern state of Rakhine have been reduced to charred ruins as their residents, members of the Rohingya people, have been driven out of their traditional region, sometimes killed or brutalized, by Myanmar's military in what firsthand observers describe as a systematic ethnic cleansing. "Where will they go?"

Indian teen cricketer dies after drowning in swimming pool in Sri Lanka
Dilshan Munaweera's 29-ball 53 and Ashan Priyanjan's 40-ball 40* powered Sri Lanka to 170 for 7 after they were put in. After Rohit Sharma (9) and KL Rahul (24) departed, Virat Kohli took the lead role in guiding India to victory.

By most accounts, the military has hit back hard after a major attack by the ARSA last month.

Still, some observers insist that Suu Kyi has tried to hold back the Tatmadaw.

"Our government has never missed an opportunity to raise our concerns with the Burmese government, whether with the president, with Aung San Suu Kyi, or with the commander and chief", Alghabra said in May. (Daw is an honorific).

"I know the Chinese do not favor anything more than a repeat of what we've done before, but the situation might demand that", the diplomat said. "ANP has same idea as the military", Sithu Aung Myint said.

Erdogan refrained from openly criticising Aung San Suu Kyi directly, but reportedly told her in a September 5 phone call that the violence perpetrated against Myanmar's Rohingya population was a violation of human rights. Otherwise, he said, the violence could spread throughout Rakhine and around the country.
