SRI LANKA – Monk-led mob attacks Rohingya refugees in Sri Lanka
COLOMBO: Radical Buddhist monks stormed a United Nations safe house for Rohingya refugees near Sri Lanka’s capital on Tuesday (Sep 26) and forced authorities to relocate the group, officials said.
Saffron-robed Buddhist monks led a mob that broke down gates and entered the walled multi-storied compound at the Mount Lavinia suburb of Colombo as frightened refugees huddled together in upstairs rooms, a police official said.
Two police were wounded in the incident, which also saw the mob pelt stones at the safe house and trash the ground floor furnishings upon entry.
There were no reports of casualties among the group of refugees, which included 16 children.
“We have pushed back the mob and the refugees have been relocated in a safer place,” the official told AFP, asking not to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media.
“This is my country. Go back to Myanmar”
Its almost like these buddhists are aware of the history of Buddhist nations that have been invaded by muslims in the past. Brahman Buddha statues anyone?
