Shan State Govt Slams Inter-faith Group
30 May 2013
The government of Shan State last week objected to the establishment of an inter-faith group formed earlier this month, according to a report by the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB). The group, bringing together Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and Muslims, was formed in the state capital Taunggyi on May 8 during a workshop sponsored by the Yadanar Myay Social Development Association and Norwegian People’s Aid. On its website, the state government slammed the move, saying it had given permission for the workshop, but not for the creation of a new group.
