Letter: The world needs to intervene in Rohingya ethnic cleansing


What is going on with the Rohingyas who were exiled from their own home country is an atrocity. Why is the world still tolerating these horrendous ethnic cleansing practices?

The world should not forget what happened with Hitler in the 1940s and the former Yugoslavian states in the 1980s and 1990s. It is also a shame that Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, the de facto leader of Myanmar does not take any responsibility for what is happening. I think that in all fairness the Nobel Peace Prize Committee should yank the 1991 award from her.

In addition, while the Pope has been the most progressive of all the Popes of recent times in terms of social issues, he should have been more forceful during his recent visit to Myanmar to call out the atrocities committed against the Rohingyas by name instead of being vague about it.
