Who is the real culprit or guilty criminal? Wirathu or his masters?
Rough translation of the FB posting of my younger brother U Maung Maung Skw (Shwe Keraweik) Mandalay/KL
Who is the (real) criminal?
A person who had to go through the poor childhood and a miserable lifespan
Struggling in a very tough-life since young to support the fatherless family
Learned hard to get a good education as a mean to free from lifelong poverty
Got a megalomania, a very strong desire to become a famous and successful person
Even as a young novice monk, overconfident with the newly acquired knowledge, challenged the elderly revered Abbots
Bo Khin Nyunt (MI Chief General Khin Nyunt) spotted his talent and adopted to use as a senior agent provocateur cum hate monger or racial and religious agitator against Muslims
The megalomeniac monk elated and enjoying the rocking of the socio-religious boat by using the power vested by crazy general
The Kyauksae riots gone out of control
At the dusk of Bo Khin Nyunt, (he was) sentenced for 25 years
Suffered a painful experience of life in jail
After nine years in jail, suddenly released with (the lame excuse of giving) an amnesty
Remaining 16 years, signed as an acknowledgement to behave, is like a dangling sword of Damocles on his head (Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Damocles)
If the government is not happy (with his service or performance) that remaining balance of 16 yrs is bad enough even without calculating the new superadded punishments
Young person with great ambitions
Who is not afraid of the jail?
After freshly released from jail
Tried with great ambitions to struggle for multi-religious interfaith peace and even for the world’s peace
Mandalay Prime Minister Ye Myint even withdrawn the already approved permit for the “Prayers for Peace” and even declared that he would not allow any event if Wirathu participate
As a stubborn fellow, he insisted and proceed with the “Prayers for Peace” in front of the Zeygyo Hotel, where the original permit was given and later withdrawn
Police trying to open a case for that prayer event
As Approved Permits for the events were not with him
Even if the offence was not serious, the balance of 16 yrs (he owed) was scary
(Note: Maung Maung showed the required permits documents that I get after duly applied and explained to the Mandalay Division Police Chief Aung Naing Thu)
Black-listed Aung Thaung (he was not black listed yet at that time) entered the scene and we don’t know how he threatened and persuade (Wirathu) to reverse all his conditions, behaviours and activities
Without much (real life) general knowledge combined with megalomania, (Wirathu) may done more than what Aung Thaung had asked or ordered
Peer pressure of the (Racist) Rakhine and (969 Ma Ba Tha ultra-Nationalist-Patriotic) USDP is also enormous
Three S.B. (Special Branch) Police escorted him and is giving 24 hr security
Ko Myat Thu and Ma Myint Myint Kyi, from Tharthana Neggaha association, also accumulate and compile all the rape cases related to “Kalars” (derogatory word for Muslims) around the country
If he could create a problem (outside) or on the FB, he could get numerous “LIKES” and supporters who donate generously
So, the person with weak up-brings in childhood moral values is easily ruined
During the earlier problems he created, if (I) explained him thoroughly with reasonable or acceptable facts, he used to understand and quickly rectify back those conflicts
But later, to get complete control on Wirathu, stimulants and drugs were given
During the Rakhine Preaches and the latest case of insulting (UN Special Rapporteur) Ms. Yanghee Lee with foul and abusive language, we could see the signs of drug usage.
We do not wish to claim that Wirathu is a good person
But…now (the military government is) using coercion, intimidations, threats, rewards and at last involvement of stimulant drugs to made him into a Muslim-killing-machine to destroy the country so that they could continue to rule
Who is wrong and guilty, Wirathu or his political (military) masters?
Who is the real culprit or guilty criminal?
