Rabat, MINA — The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) has called on the Nobel Prize Committee to immediately withdraw its peace prize from Myanmar’s State Counsellor and de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Under Suu Kyi’s leadership, the country started brutal massacres that would amount to crimes against humanity against the ethnic Rohingya Muslim minority, IINA News reported.

Director General Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri said that the State Counsellor of Myanmar had lost the eligibility for the award because of the acts of her country against the Rohingya under her leadership and support, noting that such atrocities are contrary to the objectives of the Nobel Award as well as international laws and human rights.
