REPORT:

Myanmar's Muslims: The Oppressed of the Oppressed - Rianne ten Veen looks at the situation of Muslims in Myanmar (Burma) and discusses their plight within the human rights tragedy of that country.

This report seeks to bring the plight of Myanmarese Muslims to light and guide activists to relevant campaign groups, literature, news and organisations as well as encourage original, new and participatory campaigns. At a time when religion is being demonised and those professing faith – usually Islam – deemed fanatical and by extension worthy of ill-treatment, it is imperative that the cruelty and horror of religious hatred is acknowledged and its victims given due consideration.
