Last week, I talked to a Muslim man in a southern state of Myanmar who ended up at an event related to the 969 movement in early April.

He was standing at a betel shop with a few other Buddhists. One person told them to join him towards the monastery where a 969 sermon was talking place. As he does not look like a typical Muslim man, he was mistaken to be a Buddhist. He was not sure of himself why he joined the group. (more…)

“Some people have fled since yesterday. Two buses of soldiers from Taikkyi have arrived here. Township Administration officer is also present.

There is nothing unusual. We were worried about the sermon done last night. But the monk who preached last night was good, he didn’t say anything propagating against religions.” A local from Okkan said to M-Media.

In Okkan, there have been sermons arranged by the 969 sect, and people are worried of the day that will end the sermons, 29th March. Letters of threat have been received which says that Muslim villages will be set on fire.
