Religions and beliefs in Burma
Religions and beliefs have long contributed to the development of Burmese society and culture. In terms of legislation, there was no official protection of freedom of worship until the Socialist Constitution of 1974 was suspended in 1988. The authorities are generally tolerant of religious groups.
However, the situation is not as transparent as it is believed. The government imposes restrictions on certain religious activities and is occasionally accused of abusing the freedom of religion to promote a single religion, Buddhism. Here is a short overview of the religions and beliefs in Burma that can be useful .
