Myanmar town offers glimmer of hope for Muslims enduring ‘apartheid’ | AFP

In the town of Kyaukphy in western Myanmar, Buddhists and Muslims used to live side by side as neighbours. But since 2012, when inter-communal unrest swept through swathes of western Myanmar, the town’s Muslim population has been confined to a muddy camp. Some, however, still try to reach across the religious divide, raising hopes that old communal bonds may not be completely severed.

As China locks up Muslims in Xinjiang, it opens its doors to tourists | AFP

From the expansive dunes of the Taklamakan Desert to the snow-capped peaks of Tianshan, Chinese authorities are promoting the western Xinjiang region as a tourist idyll, welcoming travellers even as they send locals into internment camps. The government has rounded up an estimated one million Uighurs and other mostly Muslim Turkic-speaking minorities into re-education camps in the tightly-controlled region in China’s northwest, but it has also created a parallel universe for visitors, who are only shown a carefully curated version of traditional customs and culture.

Last year Muminjonova was one of 10 students excluded from a university in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan for violating dress code by sporting the hijab, a staple of female Islamic dress.

Decades of violent civil war in Sri Lanka – brief overview

Sri Lanka was dominated for decades by the sharp divide between the majority Sinhalese, who are overwhelmingly Buddhist, and the minority Tamil, who are Hindu, Muslim and Christian.

The Tamil minority formed into a group called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and dedicated to the fight for Tamil independence. They were crushed in a 2009 government offensive.

After the civil war ended, a religious divide quickly took hold, with hard-line Buddhist monks rallying Sri Lankans against what they argue is a pernicious threat: Muslims, who make up roughly 10% of the country’s population.

In 2018, anti-Muslim violence flared across the hills of central Sri Lanka, fed by rumors spread over social media about attacks on Buddhists. Mobs of Buddhists swept through small towns, attacking mosques and Muslim-owned shops.

How To Ban A Gun In 28 Days (HBO)

On the afternoon of March 15, as Muslims gathered for Friday prayers, a gunman entered into the Masjid Al Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, and shot at anyone in his path before driving to another mosque and doing the same.

The shooting spree proved to be the deadliest in the country’s history, leaving 50 people dead, dozens more injured, and propelling the island country into a moment of national soul-searching.

Less than a month later, the type of weapons used by the gunman are now banned under dramatic new legislation that has effectively rebuilt New Zealand’s gun laws overnight.
