“Both the generals & Aung San Suu Kyi sing from the same Buddhist nationalist hymn book & their vision of Burma does not have much space for Muslims–& no space for Rohingya. Her stance is nothing less than 100% genocidal. The generals view Western Burma (Myanmar) as an originally Muslim-free region & part of the kingdom of Burma–despite all evidence to the contrary that Rakhine was a rich, cosmopolitan, multi-ethnic & multi-faith kingdom.”

–Maung Zarni, Burmese dissident in exile
