Criticism has also been leveled at Aung San Suu Kyi, the world-famous opposition leader who has struggled indefatigably for the Burmese people against the military junta but who has not spoken on behalf of the Rohingya people.

The spotlight of the international press and human rights observers has once again fallen on the plight of thousands of Rohingya  Muslims who are fleeing persecution in their native Myanmar , but whom no country wishes to accept . They seem abandoned on the high seas. The neighbouring countries of Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and also Australia have refused to give refuge to these victims who have suffered extreme persecution at the hands of local Bhuddist mobs and odious discriminatory policies perpetrated by the Burmese authorities.

Human rights groups have for long tried to draw the world’s attention to the plight of the Rohingya, who are Muslim and of Bengali origin, but have for decades, and in some cases centuries, settled in neighbouring Myanmar. They face constant hate speech from Bhuddist monks and, worryingly, the wider Buddhist population, and overt discrimination in the fields of education, housing and employment. In 1982 General Ne Win’s military regime enacted the Citizenship Law which denied the Rohingyas citizenship of a country they have inhabited for generations. They are considered as Bengalis and not Burmese, so their basic citizenship rights are denied.
