Furious Buddhists Are Making Life Hell for Sri Lanka’s Muslims

Muslims are under attack in Sri Lanka. Recent reports indicate that gangs of Buddhists have been roaming the streets, administering bloody mob beatings and attacking places where Muslims work and worship. Raw pork has been thrown into mosques, the Halal logo has been banned and the prominent Muslim government critic Azad Sally has been arrested. One dramatic incident ended with government commandos being deployed to maintain law and order after a gang of Buddhists injured four people at a mosque in Colombo, Sri Lanka‘s largest city, forcing it to close and a curfew to be put in place.
