Could a Rohingya friend explain why–actually if–we should mourn Ko Ni? I certainly do not agree with his assassination but he was a legal adviser to Aung San Suu Kyi & her party & remained a loyal supporter of Suu Kyi throughout this monstrous offensive against Rohingya.
He was a Muslim &, while not Rohingya, still persecuted as a Muslim in Myanmar. Or did his class status exempt him from that? There are no reports he objected to the genocide of Rohingya Muslims.
So I’m sorry he was shot down in the street & think whoever did it should be prosecuted, but I don’t want to waste my tears on a guy who stood silent about genocide.
