The Guardian: Mongolia is the unsung success story of Asian human rights

It is a pity that Tania Branigan overstates the influence of “Mongolian neo-Nazis” in her article (Mongolia neo-Nazis – Anti-Chinese sentiment fuels the rise of ultra-nationalism, 2 August). She says that “a new strain of Nazism has found an unlikely home” in Mongolia and that “ultra-nationalists are … becoming more sophisticated and, quietly, more powerful” here. To illustrate this assertion, Branigan’s article carries an alarming photograph of six swastika-bedecked Mongolian skinheads rigidly standing to attention with their right arms thrust in a “Heil Hitler” salute. As a regular visitor to Mongolia since 1993 and a resident in Ulan Bator over the past 18 months, I find this skewed depiction of life here to be demeaning and unfair to Mongolians. To read the full article, click hereMongolia is the unsung success story of Asian human rights
