Millions of people worldwide became agitated after the recent attacks on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar. They are using micro-blogging site Twitter to express their agitation and dissatisfaction on the country's top politician Aung San Suu Kyi as she apparently doing nothing to save the Rohingya community.
After the recent attacks on Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, some disturbing images and videos are spreading on social media. While many people claim that some of the images have been manipulated using Photoshop, others are proven to be real. Those pictures are showing clear evidence of how Rohingyas are facing systematic repression in Myanmar.
The United Nations (UN) has stepped forward and requested Bangladesh to open its border for Rohingya Muslims. However, the government of Bangladesh hasn’t given any official statement on that as yet. Media reports suggest that thousands of Rohingyas are trying to enter Bangladesh by crossing the Naf River every day. But the border security force of Bangladesh, BGB, is pushing them back to the country where they fear nothing but death.
Many Twitter users are expressing their anger and dissatisfaction on the issue. Some of them even urging the Nobel Committee to take back the Nobel peace prize of Aung San Suu Kyi. A petition is already created for this, which is turning into an online movement.
Twitter user ”Major Dalim” demanded that the Nobel prize of Aung San Suu Kyi should be taken back. He also marked her as a ”silent killer.”
