Buddhists in South Korea rally against gov't 'religious bias'

Al Jazeera, 21 Jan 2022
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.
