Burma’s ethnic hatred | Stock & Land
By Hanna Hindstrom
The recent brutal religious violence in Burma’s western Arakan state has cast a shadow on the country’s democratic progress. Dozens of people have been killed and hundreds of homes destroyed as Buddhists and Rohingya Muslims clash near the Bangladeshi border in the country’s worst sectarian violence in decades.
Even more shocking than the violence has been the public outpouring of vitriol aimed at the Rohingya, the stateless minority group at the centre of the conflict.
