Myanmar Leaders Involved In The Rohingya Muslim Genocide: UN

The United Nations hinted at the fact that the leader of Myanmar might have been complicit in the Rohingya crisis which was no less than a genocide. The top human rights official of the United Nations stated that Aung San Suu Kyi should have resigned last year accepting the responsibility for the crackdown carried out by the Myanmar army.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights said on Wednesday during an interview with BBC that the Myanmar leaders were in a position to do something about the entire episode. He further added that Aung San Suu Kyi should not have stayed quiet and it would have been the best if she would have resigned as the leader of Myanmar.

The UN officially clearly indicated that the Myanmar top leader might have been involved in the carnage carried out by the Myanmar army in the Rakhine state. He also said that the attempts made by the Myanmar leader to shield the army which is guilty of the genocide is deeply regrettable.

He lashed out at Aung San Suu Kyi for being the spokesperson of the Myanmar army which was at the helm of the crackdown. He reiterated that the top military officials of Myanmar must be tried for the genocide which they carried out on the Rohingyas. Earlier the UN had termed the acts of the Myanmar military as being an act of ‘ethnic cleansing.’

A recent report of the UN inspection team demanded a persecution of the top military generals in Myanmar for being responsible for the Rohingya crackdown after which more than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled to Bangladesh to save their lives. The leader of Myanmar has tried to shield the army on several occasions against the accusations of assaults, arsons and rapes of Rohingya Muslims in the Rakhine state. But all said and done, will the leader of Myanmar accept the responsibility for the massacre?
