Why Has Aung San Suu Kyi Remained Silent On the Rohingya People?

When thousands of Rohingya people from Burma were discovered floating in boats on the southeast Asian seas much of the world was understandably gripped by this unfolding human tragedy.
But what has surprised some is the silence of Burmese politician and Nobel peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
Aung San Suu Kyi herself has previously justified her reluctance to speak out on the issue of the Rohingya, even when pressed to do so during Buddhist-Muslim clashes that swept through the country in 2013.
