We are observing more and more horrific reports of massacres of the Rohingya minority by Myanmar’s security forces. Rohingyas recall with horror the massacre at Tula Toli carried out by the Myanmar army.
The Nobel laureates including Desmond Tutu have called on Aung San Suu Kyi, the powerful leader of Myanmar and the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize for 1991 to end military-led operations against the Rohingya minority, which have driven 270,000 refugees from the country in the past fortnight.
Several news source and The ABC reveals specific allegations from two separate sources about mass killings in the village of Chut Pyin, near Rathedaung township in western Myanmar. There are reports that in the last few months shows Myanmar's army have killed 'thousands' of Rohingyas.
Most recently, snaking around the remote village on three sides, the treacherous waters allowed Myanmar soldiers to corner and hold people on the river’s sandy banks. Some were shot on the spot. Others drowned in the current as they tried to escape.
Those who escaped fled to the hills in the west to make the three-day trek to Myanmar’s border with Bangladesh. The rest were buried in a mass grave, villagers said.
The 85 year old archbishop Tutu said the “unfolding horror” and “ethnic cleansing” in the country’s Rahkine region had forced him to speak out against the woman he admired and considered “a dearly beloved sister”
World leaders are pressuring to the Myanmar government but so far the bodies responsible for dealing with such crimes have not been persuaded to act. It is time now for the United Nation and the the Norwegian Nobel Committee to act in a noble cause.
We demand a peaceful world where Rohingya minority people can safely return to their country where they were born and where their ancestors have lived for several hundred years.
In many recent major newspapers we see the headlines, 'Should Aung San Suu Kyi give back her Nobel prize?
The key policy maker Aung San Suu Kyi said the reports of massacres are "fake news", which is not acceptable by the world media. So we are demanding her to give the prize back.
