10:06 am
leader all sausan chait now the international rights groups have been monitoring this are urging the pontiff to speak out for the muslim minority and in the country the subjects of a military crackdown underway for a number of months though some have been calling the military's action ethnic cleansing now we'll be getting an update from our correspondent on the scene in myanmar boston hardy or first we're going to look at a report he sent us about the hopes many hab for the hopes visit to myanmar. church courtyards and yang gone are bursting at the seams this week. hundreds of thousands of believers have flocked from all four corners of the country wanting to see the pope and many of them are young. to resupply and i is part of a catholic youth group from pitchin state in the north of me and mark. a region
10:07 am
that's been plagued by a war between the military and ethnic rebel armies one third of the population there is christian. for teresa and most of the others in the group it's their first ever trip to the big city so they're eager to set out and explore. most of all they want to experience the pope. they hope to return home with the courage to make their country a better place but on a view this is. in our area there is civil war there is no peace and i don't want the approval of president we're here to receive the pope's message of peace and to pray together the job or not i need ten years that i will not and that's important i hope that can bring us peace to name him up will be mean to me alone i say to him and then you see that in a country rice with ethnic and religious tensions many believe the pope's message
10:08 am
of nonviolence and understanding could help me and mar overcome its numerous conflicts. and no conflict currently looms as large as the one between the army and the muslim rule hinge a minority that has displaced more than half a million people in just a few months but only catholics in myanmar are closely following the pope's historic visit many of this country's muslims are to they hope that the pope can not only draw attention to the fate of the hundreds of thousands of fled to bangladesh but that he can also convince the powerful army to back off in the name of humanity all nine when isn't imaam in years gone he heads an organization that is working to strengthen ties between youths of different faiths he's aware of the debate of whether and how the pope should weigh in on the sensitive issue of the room. for the sake of me and mars muslims he wants a clear statement from the pontiff what muslim. hoping from. you know the
10:09 am
situation of the northern rock kind stay about the real danger people the war have been doing that do you know when a part of the wall where happening this genocide and it is also the time when the messenger of peace is visiting he must have mentioned about that situation to research her friends have made it to one of the most sacred sites in the buddhist world and me and mars most famous landmark the shrader gone pagoda she says she feels welcome here in spite of her religion she wishes everyone in myanmar could also say that about the country. and. pope francis can unite the different religions and foster love between people of different faiths and this is what i hope and believe.
10:10 am
it's a noble wish but in myanmar's current reality it seems it will take nothing short of a miracle to make it come true. so can the pontiff help bridge some of me and mars many deep divisions from the ongoing were john now by the correspondent who put that report together for us hardish boss in the pope is meeting with sausage cheney today a very important meeting what can we expect from. well one of the issues brian that they'll be talking about very very likely is of course the row he said there was a situation in northern rakhine stay with there were injured. but that's probably not the only thing that they owe that the pope will be bringing up there are many other issues to discuss for one there will be probably the issue of transformation he already brought that up in his meeting with the commander in chief of the armed
10:11 am
forces here in myanmar yesterday. of course is a country that until recently has been under the rule of the military under a military dictatorship now it's opening up the civilian government that sense of g. is de facto heading just took office a year ago so that's something that's a difficult process and that's something that he's likely to be talking about and then of course there are many other conflicts in this country as well myanmar is home to some of the longest running internal conflicts in the world many of those taking place in the ethnic areas for example in cuts in state where the young people that we saw in the report are from tens of thousands of people there have been displaced by fighting between the myanmar army and ethnic rebel fighters and they've been living in in refugee camps for for many years in their future is very uncertain and many of them are in fact as the people who we saw are in fact christian so their future and their fate is truly something that the pope will have
