We have learnt in our school days that Buddhists are very peaceful people and never hurt even an insect, but I am sorry to mention that whatever we heard in our childhood days was not correct with what is going on in Myanmar. Since late August more than a quarter of million Rohingya Muslims have flooded into Bangladesh in just two weeks, over 1000 Rohingya butchered, raped and killed. The ongoing conflict has created an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and over half million families in desperate need of shelter, food and water. It is time that all Muslims, who have been victims for decades, should be saved from atrocities.
