When news came in early on the morning of 25 August that militants from the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) had attacked police posts in northern Rakhine state, killing 12 people and ushering in a massive army crackdown, it did not take long for Myanmar’s new “information committee” to swing into action.
There is a prevailing view that Aung San Suu Kyi, even if she wanted to, could not speak up for the Rohingya without risking the stability of the country. “Aung San Suu Kyi has to walk a very fine tightrope given the Myanmar military still has a very influential position within the country,” said Shyam Saran, former chief of the Indian foreign service and an ambassador to Myanmar in the 1990s.
