Tutu condemns Aung San Suu Kyi's silence

But Yanghee Lee, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in Myanmar, said, "What we forget is that she is a politician through and through". There are many human rights activists who lauded her before she rose to power who feel betrayed.

World powers continue to support a leader who appears to be maintaining her position at a cost that Tutu described as "surely too steep". We are still waiting to see flashes of lights in one of the darkest hours of our time. Today she is the architect and mastermind of the Muslims' genocide of Rohingya Muslims and doing all reverses.

Bangladesh has struggled to cope with those fleeing the violence, which takes the number of Rohingya refugees in camps on its border with Myanmar to around 670,000.

At least 15,000 supporters of the Islamist Islami Andolon Bangladesh party chanted slogans against Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Reconciling an activist's ideals with the hard realities of governing is never easy, but rarely has an worldwide icon fallen so fast as Suu Kyi. Her commitment to peace and deliberations, her efforts to uphold the values of democracy, and her respect for human rights all amount to nothing if she stays silent at a moment when the world is in grief over the harrowing atrocities in her own country. As my novel was about a British girl who stands up for herself against the odds - and wins - my publicist thought it would be interesting to list the women who had inspired me enough to write a story about defending human rights. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that more than 270,000 people have been driven into Bangladesh. This has made it more hard to handle the plight of the increasing number of persecuted Rohingya.

Between Trudeau's careful language, opposition attacks, and Canadians' growing desire to see its government condemn foreign military violence on innocent people, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland struck a harder tone.

It's true that the generals maintain a grip on many parts of the state, and she needs them to govern.

While Suu Kyi's Nobel prize is safe, the development has already sparked an global debate, chiefly on whether the Nobel committee should retain responsibility for the prizes it awards, and withdraw them if its laureates later violate the principles for which they were recognised.

Nunes keeps belt, defeats Shevchenko at UFC 215 in Edmonton
I was looking to stand and trade punches with him but when I felt that I could control his weight, I chose to go with that. Johnson was looking to set the UFC record for consecutive title defenses, as he is now tied with Anderson Silva.

Professor Muhammed Yunus has urged Suu Kyi to show leadership over the Rohingya crisis. The images we are seeing of the suffering of the Rohingya fill us with pain and dread.

"We have never missed an opportunity to express our concerns on behalf of our government, but frankly, also on behalf of Canadians, who are watching what is happening over there and are expressing deep concern about the targeting of ethnic minorities, including the Rohingya".

Professor Yunus said the refugees flooding already poverty-stricken towns and villages would create a lot of tension between the two countries and risked the security of the region.

A few stalls down, Thet Mhoo Ko Ko, 25, who helps run his family's eyeglasses shop, said the blame over the Rohingya crisis lies more with the military.

The outcome of this massive forced displacement of people is also that there is already a major humanitarian crisis. But on arrival, it was withdrawn after word reached Suu Kyi's government in the capital Naypyidaw, and the order was given to stop the BBC team and return them to the capital. In their hunt for the militants, the distribution of food, shelter and much-needed materials has been stopped.

Chris Wattie / Reuters Prime Minister Justin Trudeau listens to Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi speak during a meeting in Trudeau's office on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on June 7, 2017. A Bangladeshi judge wants her to be tried for crimes against humanity.

Suu Kyi once said, "It is not power that corrupts, but fear". The military regime offered to let her go overseas, but it was evident she would not be allowed to return.

"I'm still hoping that she will wake up, be bold and take some leadership, she has not shown that leadership yet".
