URGENT ALERT: Myanmar – Demand Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize is rescinded

IHRC is asking for activists in Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia and the UK to take the lead in calling for Aung San Suu Kyi to have her Nobel Peace Prize rescinded.

More precisely, we are urging activists from the mentioned countries to contact the Nobel Foundation and say that Aung San Suu Kyi definitely does not deserve this award, and that it should be taken away from her.

The concerns come after realizing that a Nobel Peace Prize winner publicly ignores the deaths, rapes and humiliation of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. It is clear that Aung Saan Suu Kyi has failed to exercise any of the considerable power she wields to stop the murdering and abuse of the Rohingya Muslims. These atrocities have been going on like this for several years. If something is not done soon, the history of one ethnic minority in Myanmar will surely come to an end.

The Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar have been pushed to the limit to which human beings cannot cope with. Since the Nobel Peace Prize winner, and the leader of the National League of Democracy, came to power she has completely ignored the global issue that are the Rohingya Muslims, humiliated the ethnic minority of Myanmar by refusing to use the term “Rohingya” and denied these people basic human rights in their country.

More and more activists are uniting for the benefit and survival of the Rohingya Muslims. The latest act of humanity was accomplished by a group of 23 activists, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Malala Yousafzai. This act consisted of an open letter to the UN security council and it is a warning that the Rohingya Muslims are being killed, raped, mistreated and are fleeing en masse as their villages are attacked and destroyed.

Despite being accused by Human Rights organisations across the globe, she has continued to ignore the fact that genocide is happening to the Rhonigya Muslims.

It is clear that Aung San Suu Kyi should not be allowed to retain the titles that were conferred upon her as a political activist. IHRC requests campaigners to directly contact the Nobel Committee and the other organisations and foundations that have, in the past, handed out human rights awards to Aung Saan Suu Kyi.

Requested Action, E-mail addresses and Telephone numbers.

1. Please contact the Nobel Committee and demand they rescind the award given to Aung San Suu Kyi because of her stance on the Rohingya.

Please send any responses to IHRC on info@ihrc.org

Dear Kaci Kulman Five.

We are writing to express a demand that Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize is rescinded due to her stance on the Rohingya Muslims.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner has, on multiple occasions, displayed a negative and discriminatory attitude towards the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. There are numerous insults and humiliating references that show her attitude. In the media Aung San Suu Kyi portrays the Rohingya issue as something of little or no importance to the Myanmar government and political authorities.

We demand that the Nobel Peace Prize is taken away from her, because genocide denial and ignoring mass murder of a specific ethnic group does not fit in the description of a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

We are sure you will understand our demand as it represents humanity and justice.

Yours sincerely,

Your name.
