Rights Group Blames Govt for Religious Strife
30 August 2013
The New York-based Physicians for Human Rights has accused Burma’s government of allowing deadly attacks on Muslims in the country to continue with impunity, reports the Religious News Service. In a report released after the latest outbreak of anti-Muslim violence in Kanbalu, Sagaing Division, the group said that government must do more to address the issue of religious violence. “The Burmese government must make a concerted effort to allow an effective investigation into these abuses and hold perpetrators accountable,” it said. Meanwhile, DVB reports that the Myanmar Muslim National Affairs Federation has pledged to push the government to take action against the Kanbalu rioters.
