Washington (Web Desk): A Holocaust Museum of the United States of America on Wednesday canceled a human rights award given to Aung San Suu Kyi , the Myanmar’s leader of Myanmar, over her failure to use her “moral authority” to halt a brutal military campaign.
Holocaust Museum authorities and officials cited her refusal to condemn or stop the mass murder of Muslim Rohingya minority of Myanmar.
Suu Kyi’s party won victory in 2015 and she became state counselor, Barack Obama relaxed sanctions, gave financial assistance to her and became the first sitting US president to visit Myanmar.
However, Aung San Suu Kyi’s international reputation has collapsed over the Rohingya massacres and she has been criticised as an apologist for the purges. She has not even spoken the word Rohingya in public.
