Religious Freedom Report of Myanmar (Burma)

July 31, 2012

Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor International Religious Freedom Report for 2011

Burma

The constitution and other laws and policies restrict religious freedom. The government implemented considerable political reforms, but did not demonstrate a trend toward either improvement or deterioration in respect for and protection of the right to religious freedom. The government maintained restrictions on certain religious activities and limited freedom of religion, although it generally permitted adherents of government-registered religious groups to worship as they chose. While constraints on respect for and protection of the right to religious freedom continued, the community of Christian churches reported a notable easing of restrictions on church building and a positive relationship with the Ministry of Religion, including the ministry’s organization of interfaith dialogues. The government also passed a new law to protect freedom of assembly and procession and provided greater access to ethnic minority areas for U.S. officials and organizations.

Myanmar (Burmese) Muslim Association’s Statement on Communal Riots

Statement on Communal Riots in Rakhine State, Myanmar

1. The news wrote in the Myanmar government’s newspapers on 5th June 2012, “Kalar Muslims”(Kalar is derogatory term for Muslim) deliberately assaulted cruelly on Rakhine women,” had started the instigation by cooking up the simple criminal case into a racial and religious hatred, leading to communal riots.

2. Current President’s office director, major Htay Zaw recklessly wrote fomented postings in his Hmu Zaw face book, repeatedly to incite the people; such as “Fully armed Rohingyas from Bengladesh have illegally invaded Myanmar”, “Don’t talk about empathy, Human Rights issues” and “To protect the lives of Rakhine people and the motherland is urgently facing security threat from illegal invader Bengalis”; which were not true.
