Muslim politicians explain resignation to Buddhist clergy

Muslim ministers and governors who resigned from the front bences earlier this month today paid a visit to senior Buddhist clergy to explain their actions. 

On June 3, three ministers and five junior ministers resigned from their cabinet positions saying they had done so as a result of the "hate culture" against Muslims in government at present. 

Their resignations followed mounting pressure from senior Buddhist clergy and politicians, as well as large scale protests calling for the arrest of one Muslim minister and two Muslim governors.
