    ( November 3, 2012, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Aung San Suu Kyi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. But she was under house arrest in her native Myanmar at that time and was unable to accept the Prize in person. That opportunity came over a decade later.

Since we achieved independence in 1948, there never has been a time when we could claim the whole country was at peace. We have not been able to develop the trust and understanding necessary to remove causes of conflict”. Where is she now when the innocent minority Rohingya Muslims are masssacred by the extremist Buddhists with the complicity of the Myanmar Govt.
