The Prisons Department will allow inmates to carry out religious activities once a month starting from the new fiscal year, said the department’s deputy director from Security Section. “It aims to help prisoners have more peaceful minds. We can’t say what the exact schedule for the religious activities is, but we’ve already given out instructions that religious activities are going to be provided monthly. “In the past, there were not much religious activities in prisons. But now we are going to provide religious activities every month,” said U Min Tun Soe last week.
