Aung San Suu Kyi to Be Stripped of Oxford Honor After Defending Rohingya Ethnic Cleansing

Myanmar’s de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, is reportedly set to be stripped of her Oxford honor after her controversial defense of the Rohingya crisis currently taking place in the country.

Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s leader who won the 2015 election by a landslide, came under fire for seemingly defending the country’s violent treatment of the Rohingya people, a Muslim minority group, which the United Nations dubbed as a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing,” The Guardian reported.
