The Dalai Lama urged Myanmar monks to act according to Buddhist principles against Muslims in the country.

“Those Burmese monks, please, when they develop some kind of anger towards Muslim brothers and sisters, please, remember the Buddhist faith,” the Buddhist leader told reporters at an annual human rights conference in the Czech capital Prague.

“I am sure (…) that would protect those Muslim brothers and sisters who are becoming victims,” Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader said.

Rohingya Muslims have faced torture, neglect, and repression in Myanmar for many years. 

Hundreds of Rohingyas are believed to have been killed and thousands displaced in recent attacks by extremists who call themselves Buddhists.
