Rohingya Case Spells Out an Opportunity for Suu Kyi: Azyumardi Azra
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Myanmar's Rohingya Muslim minority issue should provide a golden opportunity for Aung San Suu Kyi to prove herself to the world as a Nobel peace prize recipient, said Indonesian Muslim scholar Azyumardi Azra here, Thursday.
"We certainly regret Suu Kyi's attitude as a Nobel prize recipient towards the incident. This is actually a golden opportunity for her to settle the Rohingya case. If she remains silent then her credibility as a Nobel Prize recipient is questionable," he said. As the leader of Myanmar's opposition party and has won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, Aung San Suu Kyi has chosen to remain silent on the humanitarian tragedy in Myanmar's Rakhine region.
Azyumardi said that it has happened because perhaps the Rohingya issue would not give a political advantage to Suu Kyi. "I am concerned that Suu Kyi is more concerned to pragmatic politics. Rohingya people do not have citizenship meaning they have no voting right, so they would not provide a political benefit for her and therefore she has remained silent." he said.
Suu Kyi's silence on the incident is believed to be related to the opposition leader's political agenda to run for president. Suu Kyi is afraid of not being elected president if she defends the Rohingya ethnic group. ANTARA NEWS
