Tibet's spiritual leader in exile the Dalai Lama condemned Buddhist attacks on Muslims in Myanmar and Sri Lanka on Tuesday, calling religious violence "unthinkable."
The Buddhist leader delivered remarks to 15,000 people at the University of Maryland, pleading for an end to ethnic violence in Myanmar that has displaced 135,000 people and killed hundreds over the past year.
"Killing people in the name of religion is really very sad, unthinkable, very sad," the Dalai Lama said. "Nowadays even Buddhists now involved, in Burma and Sri Lanka also. Buddhist monks ... destroy Muslim mosques or Muslim families. Really very sad." (Source: Global Post)
