“Buddhists are facing a serious threat today from jihadist groups”--Â Ashin Wirathu, the leader of
Myanmar’s Burma’s 969 group.
A Buddhist cleric accused (by Muslims) of inciting violence against Muslims in Myanmar says he is joining forces with brothers in Sri Lanka to fight what he saysÂ is the “serious threat from jihadist groups”.
Ashin Wirathu, the leader of Myanmar’s 969 group, told hundreds of monks in the Sri Lankan capital on Sunday that his group would support Sri Lanka’sÂ Bodu Bala SenaÂ in its “struggle to protect Buddhism in Asia”.
Muslim groups had protested against Wirathu’s visit to Sri Lanka, saying his arrivalÂ would only cause further divisions. His group has been accused of inciting violence against the minorityÂ Rohingya Muslims.
(Allah has divided the world in believers and unbelievers. Allah rouses the believers to fight. The “Rohingya Muslims” are Bengali invaders who would murder every last Buddhist if they gained the upper hand.)
“To protect and defend the threatened Buddhist the world over, my 969 movement will join hands with the BBS,” Wirathu said at a 5,000-seat stadium packed with monks and their lay supporters.
Buddhist monk to fight ‘jihad threat’
The worldwide jihad is real. This is an article from al Jizz for western audiences.
Ashin Wirathu, of Myanmar’s 969 group, tells Sri Lankan group BBS he will help combat “Muslim head choppers…
“Buddhists are facing a serious threat today from jihadist groups,” he said, without giving details. “The patience of Buddhists is seen as a weakness.Â Buddhist temples have been destroyed. There is a jihad against BuddhistÂ monks.”
Wherever Mohammedanism gained the upper hand, Buddhists have been wiped out. That’s a fact.
The president of the Bodu Bala Sena, Kirima Wimalajothi, told the meeting thatÂ Sri Lanka was “not a multi-cultural country but rather a nation for the Sinhala Buddhists” and threatened to topple the government unless it stopped “Muslim extremism”.
It is the first and foremost duty of any government to keep its people safe from internal and external threats.
He added that a policy statement compiled by the group would be presented to the Sri Lankan president, Mahinda Rajapaksa, and that it would act to remove him if he failed to implement the changes.
The group’s general secretary, Galaboda aththe Gnanasara, urged the monks to “return to the temples and rally the people”, and said the government had a week to answer the group’s demands before it acted.
Muslims leaders on Friday petitioned Rajapaksa to request that Wirathu be refused a visa on the basis that he had been accused of inciting violence in Myanmar. No official response was given to the request.
Muslims have no business to interfere in the affairs of a non Muslim country.
Azath Salley, leader of the Muslim Tamil National Alliance, told Al-Jazeera that Wirathu’s visit would only serve to cause further divisions in the country.
Allah divided the world already.
“The government’s willingness to provide Wirathu with a visa shows they have ulterior motives in relation to the minorities”, he said.
“Wirathu promotes violence against minorities, an issue that Sri Lanka is trying to move past. His presence will harm any form of reconciliation taking place”.
