Aung San Suu Kyi to be excised from the children's books of her idols | World Press
One of the most beloved children's book of 2017, a compilation of tales of female idols from Amelia Earhart and Marie Curie to Hillary Clinton and Serena Williams that inspire youngsters to set high goals and test the state-que. AndGood Night Storys for Rebel Gal, probably in many Christmas socks, has got into dispute because of one of the 100 females in its pages.
Last year, when the novel was published, Aung San Suu Kyi was considered a dignified subject: Nobel Peace Price laureate and embodiment of bravery in the face of repression. However, her downfall has been disgraced because of her reaction to the Rohingya Muslim violent attack in Myanmar, which the UN has described as a possible holocaust, and has led to her being removed from further expenditure.
The Labour MEP and WTO shadows secretary of state Yasmin Qureshi, who voiced her concern in the House over the Rohingya crises, said: The Good Night Stories for Rebel Ladies was first released in the USA and is described as the "most-funded full-length story in the story of crowdfunding". Blackwell last weeks made it his Books of the Year, hitting Arundhati Roy's The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, among others.
Having received more than 120 awards, among them the Nobel Peace prize, Aung San Suu Kyi was deprived of her Freedom of the City of Dublin distinction last weekend and previously forfeited her Freedom of Oxford. In Dublin, the choice was made after Bob Geldof, a fellow player and active member, protested by giving back his own Freedom of the City.
Aung San Suu Kyi graduated from St. Hugh's College Oxford, where she took her profile. Rohingya Muslims are believed to have been displaced to neighboring Bangladesh by 650,000 since Myanmar's military force began its suppression. The relief organisation Médecins Sans Frontières last weekend announced that at least 6,700 Rohingya, among them several hundred infants, were slaughtered in the first wave of repression.
Aung San Suu Kyi's reaction became more critical last weekend when two Reuters reporters were arrested and imprisoned for 14 years for covering the onslaught.
