Aung San Suu Kyi must recognise human rights of Rohingyas in Myanmar

Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel laureate, has come under pressure to halt violence against Rohingya.

Aung San Suu Kyi will focus attention on the "Rakhine terrorist attacks", her spokesman said, after announcing Wednesday the she will skip an upcoming UN General Assembly session in NY later this month.

The government of Myanmar insists every single attack on a Rohingya village has been carried out by the militants in a cynical campaign to attract worldwide outrage and support to their cause.

More so as Modi could give political comfort to the Aung San Suu Kyi government on the Rohingya issue over which she is being personally castigated internationally. Murphy said she thinks Suu Kyi is being unfairly maligned because supporters had unrealistic expectations.
