From meditation to militancy is the new version of Buddhism in Myanmar


“She was the same age as my daughter, 11 years old, We did not notice her there. She was sitting in the dark, sitting quietly, crying.
My heart stopped for a moment.
The girl listened as her mother described how her husband was murdered by Myanmar military forces, how their home was set on fire, and how she was later raped by several men multiple times.
It was likely the girl was sexually abused as well.
I could not just forget that girl, because her tears were telling me lots of things.”
-Fozia Alvi, Calgary doctor at Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh.
