Myanmar State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, reflect on your own complicity in the genocide of my fellow Rohingya people, instead of dismissing well-documented allegations of crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing and genocide as “exaggerations” and “fabrications”

The Western Gate, a 200-km fenced-border with Bangladesh is perceived as “Last Frontier of Buddhism” in Burma. For decades it is being used to fan anti-Rohingya and anti-Muslim sentiments and hostilities by Rakhine extremists, Buddhist fanatics and military regimes.
