The recent eviction/ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar is all the more disgraceful and shameless because of the silence of Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of that country, which is majority Buddhist.

She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for speaking out against a repressive regime and placed under house arrest, and yet she has found no strength or will to speak out for the Rohingya.

As far as this writer is concerned, Suu Kyi should be immediately stripped of the Nobel Prize for her less-than-noble efforts to curtail the atrocities that are happening.
