Yangon, Myanmar, June 7 – A Buddhist woman gives a white rose to a Muslim boy after he completed prayers during Eid al-Fitr at Than Lyin township on the outskirts of Yangon. Myanmar Buddhists handed out white roses to Muslims heading to pray Wednesday to mark the end of Ramadan — the culmination of a rare show of solidarity in a country where Islam is often vilified. Volunteers lined up outside Dargah mosque in eastern Yangon, giving flowers to scores of devotees heading inside to mark the Eid festival, weeks after a mob of hardliners had tried to shut down Ramadan prayers.
