Wirathu and Anti-Muslim Campaigns | Htay Lwin Oo
On 2nd September 2012, in the name of supporting the President, an anti-Muslim campaign will legally be held leading by Chief Monk WIRATHU (Ma-Soe Yein) titled Baddan-Tawi-SeitTa-Biwentha, head of the Damma-Thahaaya School of Mandalay New Masuyein Monastery.
The agenda of his campaign is to “Put Rohingyas in the Refugee Camps and Send Them to Third Countries.” This is the first speech of the President Thein Sein to the UNHCR Chief Antonio Guterres concerning Rohingyas. U Thein Sein himself gradually stepped back after he had said the same speech when he realized that he was regarded as the one who had been leading or supporting the Rohingya genocides and international community have been trying to bring him into the International Criminal Court (ICC). USA and other western countries regarded him as a reform-minded president and his stepping back from his earlier stand gradually deemed his direct involvement in the crimes.
The instigator of the riot between Buddhists and Muslims in Kyauk Se Township, Wirathu, has himself given the leads in burning and killing Muslim families there. Now he, Wirathu, is continuing his conspiracies to kill and oust all Muslims by portraying a picture into the simple and honest minds of ordinary Burmese people that Rohingya means all Muslims. According to him, by showing their supports to the President speech and using it as their ground, they will continue oppressing Muslims. In hisfacebook,http://www.facebook.com/ven.wirathumsy, he mentions a paragraph on his own definition of JIHAD as his back-up for the campaign.
If they only want to racially target and attack Rohingyas, there is no point in his using of the word “JIHAD” which is related to all Muslims. What he is trying to say and portray is that Muslims are doing JIHAD and using force to increase their members in Myanmar and hence it is necessary to attack all the Muslims so that they can’t come into Burma any longer. Therefore, it is obvious that they will attack and oppress all Muslims in Myanmar by manipulating the Rohingya case.
Wirathu, he himself, knows that Muslims in Myanmar, historically, have never done any such JIHAD as he defines. Similarly, he also knows that there is no reason for Muslims in Myanmar to do such JIHAD in the future. However, the way he has been translating and spreading the news and literatures of anti-Islam campaigners in foreign countries by being In-Charge is clearly indicating that he maliciously wants to attack Muslims in Myanmar. Therefore, he has been a conspirer of carrying out genocides against other races and human beings in saffron against the Monk-Way of life. It has become questionable whether the effort to kill and cleanse Myanmar Muslims by manipulating the happenings in other parts of the world is a part of a Buddhist Monk’s life and his honour. The words “Oust these people” used by a Monk will be taken as “Kill or cleanse these people” by the ordinary people. The world is now disgusted and fed up of these Monks with Metta (loving-kindness) who are saying something and practically doing something else.
We will also make our own efforts to let the world watch his (Wirathu’s) behavior and acts and every movement of his supporters.

Who and how can anyone in the world believe the childish shouting and nonsense of Wirathu telling the world that Rohingyas are invaders? The world and international community have already known Rohingyas as one of the world’s most persecuted people. That is what they are, fascist Wirathu in the saffron!!!
