New Burma Leaders Follow Old Line About Muslim Citizenship

Despite all the hopes, the new Burmese government is following the same old hateful genocidal lines.

The new Burmese minister of religion, Aung Ko (former member of the military regime), has described Muslims with the fictitious category of “associate citizens,” implying they are not “full citizens” with the same rights as their Buddhist neighbors.

Attached is a PDF Action Alert on what you can do to stand up for and with the Muslims of Burma.
