Aung San Suu Kyi is a hypocrite

Can TV3 news (and all Malaysian  media) stop referring to Aung San Suu Kyi as pro-democracy leader until she addresses the plight of the Rohingya Muslims.
Burmese authorities have waged a campaign of ethnic cleansing against Rohingya Muslims since June 2012, thousands of Rohingya Muslims are being slaughtered by Buddhist monks and the Military Junta in Burma, yet the Nobel Peace Prize winning human rights activist, reaction, or rather lack thereof, is a huge disappointment for everyone especially her followers who see her as their beacon of hope.

Can't she see the atrocities being committed in her own country? Her silence casts a huge shadow over her ability to be the harbinger of change for Burma. 

So the Freedom of Speech Prize was for picking which fight are worthy her support? And the Nobel Peace Prize was for her personal fight? Does she see the Rohingyas as less than human, thus not worthy her support? No one expects her to take side, just speak out against violence, religious procecution and ethnic cleansing.

She's not a hypocrite, she's showing her true color!
