In May, Myanmar’s Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee, a state appointed organization representing over 500,000 Buddhist monks known as Ma Ha Na, issued a controversial order against the Ma Ba Tha nationalist group to remove its signboards across the country.
That in turn promotes a siege mentality, which helps keep them on fringes.
They too must introspect and ask themselves what they can do to change their image.
Placing the blame solely on majoritarian racism and stereotyping minorities as helpless victims, absolved of all power & responsibility for their situation, is simple and emotionally satisfying.
If there’s one thing that can unite the religions of the world, it’s misogyny.
They draw inspiration from Ma Ba Tha, a powerful monk-led group that pushed Myanmar's government to pass a raft of pro-Buddhist legislation.
