Armarni Sein Hlaing is part of a group that tries to promote peace between Buddhists and Muslims. She says the military wants to use sectarian discord in Burma to retain power. Behind Armarni is a photo of Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s famous dissident and Nobel laureate. Suu Kyi, who is revered in Washington, D.C., for human rights advocacy, has remained silent about the ethnic cleansing of Muslims in Myanmar.
