Through out the history there has been moments when mankind tend to shows its dark heart and ugly face and each and every time it seems Voltaire echoes in the distance '' It's forbidden to kill, therefore all murderers are punished. Unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets''.Voltraire point is echoes again and again through out the history. When we are witnessing the actions of few, we seemed to do nothing. We only look back in horror and disgust that people would do such thing to another human. from the Holocaust of the Jews to Srebrenica genocide of Bosnia in the 90's.We like to think that as times goes by we become smart and quick to stop genocides, but we are wrong and our politicians sometimes show their true nature. Right now as I type thousands of people are being denied basic human rights around the world.
Burma is small country in Asia that caught the attention of the world by the dignified strength of women who stood for democracy against the military Junta who control the country. Aung San Suu stood for human rights and dignity and democracy... it seemed.
There is genocide going in Burma against the Rohingya people, in echo of Nazi's there is even concentration camps.
Aung San Suu who has the respect and love of the Burmese people has so not used her power to stand against the crimes that are committed in her country by mob that are being incited by people with an invested interest.
No doubt the military leaders are using the Rohingya as way to get people on their side. But Remember the world isn't all about today the actions and silence you keep today, will have greater impact your legacy down the line in the history books.
The world stood with Aung San Suu when she fought for democracy. But she has lost that the halo for not standing for injustice that is going right in front her. Instead of using her power for good in calculated move Aung San Suu is keeping quiet so she could win the 2015 election in Burma, so in other words votes before of the genocides of the Rohingya people, who the UN called ''the world's most persecuted minority''. Of course the UN only speaks but it seems to be doing fuck all.
