This instigated fake news was shared on “969 media” facebook page, one of the social media pages of 969 movement led by prominent anti Muslim monk U Wirathu and facebook page of U Nay Myo Wai, chairman of Diversity and Peace party.

Although such incitements are against State’s constitution and current existing laws of Myanmar, the government authorities nor Sangha (Buddhist monk) authorities has not done anything yet to stop these hate speeches.
