    Why is there little coverage of the ongoing massacre of Muslims by Buddhists in Burma? When the Muslims in Pakistan attacked Christians a couple of weeks ago it was all over the damn news..

    On facebook I saw people defending the Buddhists, basically saying the Muslims were probably to blame since they were Muslim. Kinda sad.

    These Buddhists are probably going against the teachings of their religion anyway.

    But it hasn't been talked about as much, maybe that's what OP is on about.

    This has been going on for a while. There is a real threat of genocide. No idea why it's not being covered.

    Well, I think for those of us that spend our time on news websites and etc then it is well publicised.

    However, I doubt the average joe on the street knows anything about the situation. A similar situation has also been developing with extremist violent buddhism in Sri Lanka though it isn't anywhere near as violent as in Burma.

    The problem with Burma is that the Buddhist clergy has no real check on its power and in the absence of serious measures by the army then a genocide is inevitable.

    Because it is OK for the Muslims to be oppressed as they apparently are violent
