FABC Statement on Violence in Myanmar

We are deeply concerned with the violence in Myanmar. This is a long standing conflict regarding nationalistic and ethnic issues and has caused much suffering for decades.
The Buddha teaches non-harm and those practicing acts of violence are not practicing the teachings of the Buddha.
There has been much media reports about this issue and some of which are not entirely accurate. To promote religious harmony and peace in Australia, there should be responsible reporting, no disinformation or misinformation that could spark more hatred and disharmony, especially here.
We appeal to all Australians to support this humanitarian problem with humanitarian aid to the victims.
