  • Suu Kyi\'s picture was removed from Oxford

Dhaka: Myanmar's leader Aung San Suu Kyi, who is facing criticism in the wake of ongoing Rohingya crisis, has removed her portrait from Oxford College.
Noble laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is continuously criticized for not taking effective steps to stop the torture of the army on Rohingyas.
More than four and a half million Rohingyas have fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar to avoid violence.
The United Nations compared the behavior of the army of Myanmar to the racial slaughter of the United Nations.
In the meantime, St. Hugh's College of Oxford said that a Japanese painting will be placed in the place of Miss Su in the picture.
But it is still unclear why his portrait has been removed. Suu Kyi's portrait was at the entrance to the main building of the college.
College Public Relations Benjamin Jones said, "Suu Kyi's portrait has been moved to a 'safe place' where Japanese painter Yoshihiro Takeda's painting will be shown for some time.
Aung San Suu Kyi graduated from St.Hue College in 1967.
Oxford gave him honorary doctorate in 1993 after being under house arrest. He took the degree after the release, in 2012.
