Aung San Suu Kyi Of Burma Got Angry For Interview By A Muslim Presenter On BBC

She is a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and a beacon of saintly integrity in the west who remained under house arrest for 15 years in her native Burma. However, there is another side to Burmese politician Suu Kyi that sits at odds with her iconic image. After the BBC Today presenter Mishal Hussain gave Suu Kyi a rough ride during a BBC interview, Suu Kyi lost her composure and was heard to mutter angrily off-air-- 'No one told me I was going to be interviewed by Muslim'. When she was repeatedly asked by Mishal to condemn anti-Muslim sentiment, she declined to do so.
Muslims are only 4 % of Burma's population. The Rohingya Muslims who have borne the brunt of violence are a smaller minority still. The Rohingya are explicitly forbidden from becoming citizens of Burma and have no political weight whatsoever.
