Lord Buddha would have definitely helped the Rohingya Muslims: Dalai Lama

Amid mounting concern over the treatment of the Rohingya Muslims, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Sunday said that Lord Buddha “would have definitely helped” the Rohingyas” and he felt “very sad” about the violence.

“Those people…harassing some Muslims…should remember, Buddha definitely would have helped those poor Muslims,” the spiritual leader said. “I feel…so very sad.”

Nearly 300,000 of Myanmar’s 1.1 million Rohingya population have fled the violence-hit Rakhine state where the Myanmar’s army has allegedly launched a crackdown following a raid by militants on August 25.
