Myanmar prelate decries attacks on Muslims

Catholic World News - August 27, 2013

Joined by an advocate for persecuted Christians, a leading prelate in Myanmar (Burma) decried attacks on Muslims in the predominantly Buddhist society, according to a Fides news agency report.

“Many Buddhists are afraid of a possible Islamization of the country,” said Archbishop Archbishop Charles Maung Bo of Yangon, the nation’s largest city, and Benedict Rogers of Christian Solidarity Worldwide in joint message.

“Violence, discrimination and hatred are not solutions,” they added. “Treating Muslims in the way they were treated in Myanmar last year is no different from the way in which radical Islamists treat minorities in places like Pakistan or Egypt.”
