Hello, -- breaking news: A colleague just sent this link to a report on a minority group of decent Burmese Buddhists who dare to oppose the dominant current trend of hate, violence incitement, and anti-Muslim rhetoric from the Buddhist ultra-nationalist monks who have set the current trend and clearly enjoy support from the armed forces that just implemented the expulsion of 600,000-700,000 people from their country.
The brave group is called the "Anti-False Buddhist Doctrine Committee" (အဓမ္မ ဝါဒ ဆန့်ကျင်ရေး ကော်မတီ)
thank you for raising this highly important issue.
Probably, the discussion on this scholarly list could benefit from quotable, academic sources on the conflict and its historical and geopolitical background. Since I cannot claim any expertise on Burma, let me just draw attention to the work of Jacques P. Leider. Some of his writings are available online, and it is surely worthwhile to access hard copies of others.
