Burma is among the countries listed as being of special concern by the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.
The commission's list of serious violators of religious freedoms is used in making U.S. foreign policy decisions, such as whether to impose sanctions or other measures.
The Commission's annual report, released Wednesday, says Burma's military regime continues to suppress religious activity on a widespread basis. In some cases, it said, the regime forcefully promoted conversions to Buddhism from other religions.
The report says Muslims and Christians face serious abuses of human rights by the military, in some cases being forced to destroy churches and graveyards to clear sites for military camps.
It said the government discriminates against members of minority religions in education and access to services and jobs.
