Bhutan Refugee

The Buddhist authorities made me leave my country because I was Christian. I dont mind that.  Suffering is part of life. But I want to see my country again, it is my country. I dont think my father will live to return. They say if we become Buddhist we might have a better chance.  I dont think so. Ashok Rai, Christian Minister, 30. Khudanabari Refugee Camp. Nepal
