Freedom of Religion
Freedom of religion is practiced in Myanmar, although a majority (some 89.1%) are Buddhists in Myanmar. But Myanmar seems democratic that Buddhism is not defined as the official religion of the country, like most Islamic countries does. Faith and religion are a little hard to differentiate or divide, and they are often very much inter-related or confused. All teaching by a religion is generally considered as religious matters, while other customs and traditional beliefs not taught by a religious body is considered as faith. In addition to that, superstition often influences the faith and the lives of the Myanmar people.
