A number of years ago, I had an interesting conversation with a Myanmar monk who serves as a good example of the young and savvy face of Buddhism in the country today. As zealous about politics and technology as he is the tenets of his religion, he is a prolific blogger on political, religious and social issues.

Having corresponded with him for many months, I finally had a chance to meet with him at his monastery, and we discussed Myanmar’s ethnic politics during a tea-fuelled session lasting the better part of a day.

ဟုိတေလာကေလးတင္ တိ-ကုေအးေမာင္ကို ၾကံ့ဖြတ္အမတ္တစ္ဦးက လႊတ္ေတာ္ထဲမွာတင္ သင္းကြပ္လိုက္တာ ျမင္ရမွာပါ။
ဒီအခ်က္ေနၿပီးေတာ့ ၾကံ့ဖြတ္ပါတီကေနၿပီး ရခိုင္ျပည္မွာျဖစ္ပ်က္ခဲ့သမွ် အျပစ္အားလုံးကို ရခီးပါတီ RNDP ပါတီနဲ႔ တိ-ကုေအးေမာင္ရဲ႕ ေခါင္းေပၚကို ပုံခ်ေတာ့မယ္ဆိုတာ ကို ျပသလိုက္တာပါပဲ။
မိတ္ေဆြတို႔ သိတ့ဲအတိုင္းပဲ ၾကံ့ဖြတ္ပါတီဆိုတာ အထက္အမိန္႔မပါရင္ ေရေတာင္ေသာက္လို႔ မရဘူး။
အဲဒီေတာ့ ရခီးမ်ားက ဘာသာကိုအေျချပဳၿပီး၊ တစ္ခ်ဳိ႕ရိုးသားၿပီး အျမင္က်ဥ္းတဲ့ မ်က္ကန္းမ်ဳိးခ်စ္ေတြကို စည္းရုံးေသြးထိုးလႈံ႕ေဆာ္ၿပီး၊ ျပည္မမွာ ဘာသာေရး လူမ်ဳိးေရး အဓိကရုဏ္း မျဖစ္ ျဖစ္ေအာင္ လုပ္ေဆာင္ေနပါတယ္။

Myanmar war against minority Kachin Christians

January 28, 2013

“The first point that should be made is that there has been no
ceasefire and there is no ceasefire.. On the morning of Saturday the
19 of January at 6.00 a.m., the time the ceasefire was due to commence according to President Thein Sein‘s order, I stepped outside my house to be soon greeted with the sound of mortar and artillery fire.This was not sporadic small arms fire, but systematic heavy shelling from the Burma army.It was replicated elsewhere in Kachin State, but only a small fraction of it has been captured and transmitted by the media.I would therefore like to express grave concern at much of the international community’s gullible acceptance of the “ceasefire” which was either a deliberate grotesque hoax, or the result of a systemic failure in the Burma army chain of command to implement President
Thein Sein’s order.” (more…)

The Kachin activist is rightly cursing out of outrage at the Nobel prize winner ASSK

September 24, 2012

I agree with my friend Dr.Maung Zarni who shared Khun Nawng‘s photo.

If you think a Kachin activist cursing out of outrage at the Nobel prize winner ASSK, using four letter words, is “harsh” try taking bullets from the barrels of the guns of the Burma Army troops commanded by her political partners.
