Extremist Myanmar monk lashes out at Time after being called Buddhism’s ‘face of terror’

YANGON, Myanmar — Upon seeing his photo splashed across the cover of Time magazine with the words “Face of Buddhist Terror,” Myanmar’s most-talked-about monk was unfazed, saying no amount of bad publicity could hurt him.

The 46-year-old is accustomed to — even flattered by — the foreign reporters who steadily parade through his monastery in the city of Mandalay to ask about religious violence that has swept his predominantly Buddhist nation in the last year — fueled in no small part by his anti-Muslim rhetoric.


Buddhist, Muslims from Myanmar clash in Indonesia

April 5, 2013

I am sorry to read this news. This could be avoided IF the Myanmar government control the Hate Speeches, stop any violence committed by anyone and punish the culprits irrespective of race and religion. Even now they have arrested the two owners of Gold Shop. Yes give them fair trial and punish BUT arrest those looters and destroyers of their shop. Give enough compensation to them as the Police fail to protect their property.

And 4 Muslims who allegedly KILL a monk were arrested. Give fair TRIAL. If they could prove SELF DEFENCE, release them. HOW about Wira Thu standing infront of the Madrasa, asking the teenage Muslim children to pray and bow down. Forty three of those who refused were beheaded and burnt to death. Arrest Wira Thu or the responsible MONK. THIS IS THE ULTIMATE INSULT ON ISLAMIC FAITH.

If the Monk could not be trace, ARREST the POLICE CHIEFS of Meikhtila Township and District and Mandalay Division Police Chief for FAILURE to prevent the killings in front of their subordinated. This is COMMAND Responsibility. Charge them in court if U Thein is a fair minded leader. If not U Thein Sein should be held responsible for all the killings.
