Yesterday Farid Khan’s personal FB account shared a post containing a link to a petition which expressed support for the prosecution of Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi in the European Court of Human Rights over the Rohingya refugee crisis. When public found out about the post, he deleted the FB account to prevent a ‘similar incident’ from happening in the future and issued a statement.
In the statement, it wrote:
“It has been brought to my attention regarding a report by ASS, alleging that I am throwing my “weight behind a petition calling on the European Court of Human Rights to try Myanmar leader ASSK for human rights violations” in Myanmar. The report is completely untrue.”
So this Muslim presidential candidate retracted his post on petition for Rohingyas after it was known to public. But why did he retract his support or lack of?
A netizen posed him this question:
“Mr Khan, so do you support our Muslim brothers and sisters who have been unjustly persecuted and murdered by the Myanmarese government, and whos nobel laureate aung san suu kyi did not do anything to stop these human rights violations?”
Maybe Singaporeans especially Muslims in Singapore would like to know his answer to the question. To be fair, does any of the 3 Muslim presidential candidates care for our Rohingya brothers and sisters?
