Great video on interfaith work in Myanmar PORTRAITS OF DIVERSITY - U AYE LWIN

Outside of his work as a sports teacher in Yangon, U Aye Lwin, a Muslim, works tirelessly to debunk myths about Muslims and Islam through peaceful ways, like distributing pamphlets and holding interfaith meetings. U Aye Lwin is also the chief convenor if the Islamic Center of Myanmar and a core member of the Religion for Peace Myanmar interfaith organisation. Learned in Buddhism too, U Aye Lwin believes that Muslims must also look within themselves and open their doors to other faiths so they may learn that their religions are not so different from Islam.

A very nice expression of pacifist thought by U Aye Lwin. I could not resist the logic he presented and the way he is tackling the complex issue of religious intolerance.
