Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Buddhists in South Korea rally against gov’t ‘religious bias'” – below is their description.
In South Korea, Buddhist monks and clergy are rallying against what they call “religious bias” within the government.
They are demanding a personal apology from the president for remarks made by a member of his government last year.
The governing Democratic Party has apologised several times after a member of the National Assembly Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee criticised Buddhist temples for charging visitors an entrance fee and compared the heritage administration to a folklore conman, but the protesters say that is not enough.
Al Jazeera’s @Jillian Wolf has the story.
