  2. Buddhist Pogropms and Religious Conflicts
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2013
    Most observers would, rightly, reject the idea that there is something inherent in Buddhism that has led to the violence. Rather, most would recognize that the anti-Muslim violence in both Myanmar and Sri Lanka has its roots in the political struggles that have engulfed the two nations. The importance of Buddhism in the conflicts in Myanmar and Sri Lanka is not that the tenets of faith are responsible for the pogroms, but that those bent on confrontation have adopted the garb of religion as a means of gaining a constituency and justifying their actions.
