After a policy coordination meeting Thursday, he promised to hold a series of ministerial meetings to discuss the prevention of religious discrimination.

He said some progress is already being made. Buddhist temples have been added to the Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs Ministry's geographical database, and a women's high school principal who damaged a Buddhist statue is under disciplinary review.

He said the government is looking into why Buddhist temples are not represented in the Education, Science and Technology Ministry's database.
