We wish Daw Aung San Suu Kyi a birthday where she will take comfort that we are all from different parts of the world, hoping for her release and praying for her in our own way.
We from MARUAH also take this opportunity to state that Daw Aung San Suu Kyi should have been freed by now to enjoy her birthday in the company of friends and well-wishers. She has done no wrong other than to stand in an election. The government of Myanmar must release her. We urge all ASEAN leaders to secure her release and be committed to that end. It has gone on too long – not another day more, please.
