Abstract
One of destabilizing factors in the process of democratization in Myanmar is religious strife. Since the outbreak of violence in Arakan State in 2012 more clashes between Buddhists and Burmese Muslims have broken out around the country, from Meikthila in central Myanmar to Lashio in the Shan State. Whereas during the period of the military junta ethnic tensions were supressed by strict military rule, new found freedom of speech permits Buddhist monks, such as Ashin Wirathu, to spread ideas of religious intolerance and fan the flames of Islamofobia.
