This show discusses extremism within Buddhism in Myanmar. Why are Buddhists fighting Muslims? Do you think the Buddhist lynch mobs had good reasons to kill "more than 200 Muslims?" Why are religions still in conflict in the modern world? Tell us what you think! Discussion is based on the following New Times article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/21/world/asia/extremism-rises-among-myanmar-buddhists-wary-of-muslim-minority.html?src=xps
