The Dalai Lama is one of the world's most important moral voices today. He must speak out against the acts of the Burmese government, many of whom are Buddhists. Amnesty International has received "credible reports of human rights abuses against Rohingyas and other Rakhine Muslims– including physical abuse, rape, destruction of property, and unlawful killings – carried out by both Rakhine Buddhists and security forces."
The Dalai Lama must use his international power to speak out against the killing of the Rohingya Muslims in Burma, by urging the democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi to strengthen her calls for protecting the rights of ethnic minorities in Burma. The Dalai Lama must insist that the Rohingyas receive the same rights as all other Burmese citizens, and he must call for an end to indiscriminate killing of the Rohingyas people immediately.
