Buddhists distributed roses among Muslims after they finished their early morning Eid 2019 prayers in Myanmar. Roses distributed in other mosques too.
In Myanmar, some representatives of the Buddhist majority surprised Muslims with a gesture of sympathy and solidarity on the holiday of the end of Ramadan.
In a country where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims were persecuted and abused over the past year, Buddhist volunteers decided to make the followers of Islam enjoyable on Eid al-Fitr holiday.
Volunteers lined up at the Dargah Mosque in Yangon and handed flowers to the parishioners arriving at the festive prayer. Buddhists not only donated flowers to Muslims but also provided protection for the liturgy instead of the police.
The action was initiated by a Buddhist monk with moderate views of Saint, who gathered 100 volunteers with 15,000 white roses, reports The Islamic Information with reference to Albawaba.
Flowers were given to Muslims not only in Yangon but also in 22 more mosques throughout the country.
