Reform Party member Osman Sulaiman said in his Facebook that he hand-delivered a note to the Myanmar Embassy today to protest against the country’s treatment of the ethnic minority Rohingyas. His action comes on the heels of the visit of Aung Saan Suu Kyi to Singapore.
Just in case you can’t see his post, this is what he said.
Aung Sang Suu Kyi is a Nobel Peace Prize winner but yet remain deafeningly silent on the treatment of Rohingyas in Myanmar.
In United Nation’s own word, Rohingya maybe enduring crimes against humanity and Myanmar is carrying out ethnic cleansing of Rohingya.
Today, I went to the Embassy of Myanmar to hand deliver a letter from a few concerned citizens about the plights of the Rohingyas.
Their representative spoke to us from a distance as we were not allowed to enter its premises. They refused to accept our letter and thereafter instructed the security guard to communicate with us.
After a few short exchanges, we were told to drop our letter outside the gate in what seems like a letter box.
While all this is happening, the representative hid behind the security counter, not even brave enough to accept a harmless letter from us.
They are only good at killing defenceless humans but shudder to even receive a letter.
Myanmar’s treatment of its minorities is appalling and should be condemned by ASEAN Leaders. Humanity must transcend politics.
