Discrimination could lead to extremism

Published: Updated:

In a few days the people of Myanmar will try to go to the ballots and vote. But the situation for the minorities especially the Muslims who constantly face religious persecution will look different.

Even though their families lived here in generations, they are still today being denied citizenship. In many cases that means they can’t vote, no right to education and or healthcare. Many fear that the discrimination and isolation could lead to extremism and terrorism.

Journalist Khazar Fatemi has met those who are trying not to just fight for their rights but also educate their Muslim community. Because they are already seeing that some of the young Muslims are becoming more isolated and extreme in their beliefs.
