The West turns a blind eye to Myanmar’s brutality

The West is often accused of double standards. This is because it readily levies charges of human rights abuses against its enemies, but remains as silent as the grave when its allies do the same.

Few cases of double standards have been as grotesque as the Western adulation for the Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Never forget: Aung San Suu Kyi is the poster girl for freedom and democracy in Washington, London, and Berlin. Just a few months ago, Britain invited this Nobel Peace Prize winner to Buckingham Palace to meet Prince William and the Queen, as well as awarding her the Freedom of the City of London.

Meanwhile, back home, Aung San Suu Kyi’s government has enacted a series of atrocities inflicted on the largely defenseless Rohingya Muslims who live in the west of the country.

Genocide is probably too strong a term to describe the campaign of rape, torture and mass murder being inflicted against the Rohingya by the Myanmar army. But only just.

To be fair the army is beyond Aung San Suu Kyi’s control, but she has done nothing to chasten them, or to allow the United Nations to investigate alleged crimes committed by the armed forces. Most recently she blamed “terrorists” for “a huge iceberg of misinformation” on the current crisis.

The Rohingya have been stripped of the vote. The Myanmar parliament, two years ago, approved the Population Control Healthcare Bill, which attempts to restrict Rohingya women from having babies.

When I visited Sittwe, capital of Rakhine Province, last April, the situation was stomach-churning.

Mosques were burned down, while the Rohingya Muslims have been driven into camps. One-third of the town’s population used to be Muslim. But now there are just a few thousand left in a ghetto surrounded by machine guns and barbed wire.

It’s worse in the north, where large areas have been declared a “military operations area” which means there is no international presence through aid or media, and there are no witnesses.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai says the “global community” needs to intervene to protect Myanmar’s Muslim minority.

She urged Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi to speak up for the Rohingya.

“We can’t be silent right now. The number of people who have been displaced is hundreds of thousands,” Malala told the BBC.

The human rights activist is about to become a student at Oxford and admitted to “nerves” about her new life.

Speaking in Oxford, she called for an international response to the violence in Myanmar.

“I think we can’t even imagine for a second what it’s like when your citizenship, your right to live in a country, is completely denied,” said Malala.

“This should be a human rights issue. Governments should react to it. People are being displaced, they’re facing violence.
