Suu Kyi under pressure as over 124000 Rohingya flee violence

Chechnya protests Myanmar violence against Muslims

She was nominated again in 2014 and won.

"She might want to reread her Nobel text", the Board remarked, pointing to her words that summoned an original aim "to create a world free from the displaced, the homeless and the hopeless. a world of which each and every corner is a true sanctuary where the inhabitants will have the freedom and the capacity to live in peace". "My husband is a day laborer", she said.

In awarding the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 to Aung San Suu Kyi, the Norwegian Nobel Committee announced that it wished "to honour this woman for her unflagging efforts and to show its support for the many people throughout the world who are striving to attain democracy, human rights and ethnic conciliation by peaceful means".

Malala Yousafzai, the youngest Nobel Peace Prize victor, tweeted on Monday that she's waiting for Suu Kyi to condemn the Rohingya's "tragic and shameful treatment".

The ongoing persecution of the Rohingya population in Myanmar once again highlights the pathetic condition of the stateless ethnic group.

In fact, since the time Myanmar - formerly known as Burma - gained independence from the British in 1948, the Rohingyas have been treated as aliens by the Burmese authorities.

The teenager, who spoke on condition of anonymity out of concern for her safety, said her family's house was burned August 25, right after Rohingya insurgents attacked Myanmar border guard police outposts.

The legend of Josh Rosen lives on in Texas A&M win
The Horned Frogs scored 31 straight points, including Jaden Oberkrom's 22-yard field goal with 19 seconds left to force overtime. Tinker, attending his fourth game at the Rose Bowl , said the facility's history, size and atmosphere are impressive.

The new arrivals - many sick or wounded with burns or bullet wounds - have strained aid agencies and communities already helping hundreds of thousands of refugees from previous spasms of violence in Myanmar.

Rohingya activists say the refugees are stranded between Maungdaw and Rathedaung townships, as they are unable to cross the Naf River into Bangladesh.

Violence broke out after Rohingya militants clashed with Myanmar security forces, and the civilians who fled report being attacked by militants, government troops, and Buddhist mobs alike. It needs to be remembered that they came here to save their lives. However, under the Narendra Modi regime, we have unequal treatment for the Rohingyas of Myanmar, who are clearly facing as big a genocide as those that were carried out in Rwanda, Kosovo, Bosnia and more.

Meanwhile, India has said that it would deport all Rohingyas living in the country illegally but the country's Supreme Court has said that it will hear on September 11 a plea seeking a direction to the central government not to deport about 40,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees back to Myanmar.

Human Rights Watch renewed its calls for the Myanmar government to allow independent observers into Rakhine State, after releasing troubling satellite photos from inside the region showing what they claimed were villages burned to the ground.

The worldwide community already anxious about Rakhine affairs and Turkey and Iran are now calling for stopping of abuse upon the Bengalis. Yanghee Lee, the United Nations' special rapporteur for human rights in Myanmar, told the British Broadcasting Channel (BBC) that the situation was "really grave" in Rakhine and called for Suu Kyi to "step in".

Different organisations are organising countrywide protests against Rohingyas' killings on different dates, with Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri calling for protest on Friday. They took a week to reach Bangladesh hiding in villages along the way. In August, she announced she has been accepted to study at the University of Oxford.
