    Yangon division: A mob wielding weapons razed a Muslim prayer hall in northern Myanmar, state media reported on Saturday, the second attack on a mosque in just over a week as anti-Muslim sentiment swells in the Buddhist-majority nation.

    Myanmar has struggled to contain bouts of deadly religious bloodshed in recent years, with bristling sectarian tensions and rising Buddhist nationalism posing a steep challenge to the new government led by Aung San Suu Kyi.

    On Friday, villagers in Hpakant, a jade-mining town in northern Kachin state, ransacked a mosque "wielding sticks, knives and other weapons" before burning it down, according to the state-run Global New Light of Myanmar.

    "The mob was unresponsive and entirely beyond control. The building was razed by the riotous crowd," the paper reported, adding that the rampage was sparked by a dispute over the mosque`s construction.

    No arrests have been made, it said.

    The riot coincided with the end of a 12-day visit by a United Nations rights investigator who warned that "tensions along religious lines remain pervasive across Myanmar society".

    In a press conference concluding her trip Friday, Yanghee Lee called on authorities to investigate the destruction of another mosque in central Bago late last month.

    "The government must demonstrate that instigating and committing violence against an ethnic or religious minority community has no place in Myanmar," she said.

    Religious intolerance has mushroomed across the country in recent years, threatening to unravel advances towards democracy since the former junta stepped down in 2011.

    Authorities have been reluctant to launch prosecutions out of fear of stoking further unrest.

    The worst religious violence struck western Rakhine State in 2012, leaving scores dead and pushing tens of thousands of the stateless Muslim Rohingya into destitute displacement camps.

    The state remains almost completely divided on religious grounds, with Muslim communities subject to a host of restrictions on their movements and access to basic services and employment.

    Lee urged the country`s new government to make ending "institutionalised discrimination against Muslim communities in the state... an urgent priority".

    Suu Kyi, the Noble peace prize winner who championed her country`s struggle against a repressive military regime, has dismayed rights groups by not taking swifter moves to carve out a solution for the Rohingya.

    Most probably the illegally constructed Mosque by illegal Rohingya Musalman @rockey 71

    In any case Myanmar is a Buddhist land both culturally and Racially all these Musalman are illegal Bangladeshi.

    Another setup in making for creation of autonomus-minority state within state.

    Hopes, military of mynammar takes pro-active approach to resolve these 'issues' , least it will be too late , for 'humantarian's' for picking up causes of 'minority' in western dialogues and providing 'external humantarian devlopment assistance' .

    whr invaders hv been eulogised, heroes binned!!
    SHOCKING! kya yahi hain achchhe din?! totally SHOCKED by this. THIS is the result of having a communal, fascist power at centre in a large & diverse country in the neighbourhood of Myanmar. Modiji should explain now what did he achieve by so many trips to our neighbours with message of peace, love, friendship if this is the state of affairs there. Modiji take action against us arrest us but pls let Myanmar govt do its work.

    Excatly. If the "peaceful" buddhists are doing it, there must be something wrong on the other side.

    That retard is not a Buddhist.

    Anyway Buddhists are proving to be much better in this case.

    One cant fight with these terrorists by peaceful negotiations or selling daughters.

    @Kshatriya87 @Screambowl

    To kill Radical Islam or to modify it, we need to find alternative to petrol.
    As long as they have petrol and world uses it, we can't do a jack about Radical Islam.

    I am tired of talking of mere words against radical Islam again and again.
    We may not see the wiping of radical Islam in our life times.
