ven Wira thu letter (facebook is geniue?)

Post by daimond » Sat Jun 29, 2013 9:10 am

hm, there a letter in Facebook this letter in question.
Ms. Hannah Beech- TIME သို႔ ဦးဝီရသူ၏
Dear Sister Ms. Hannah Beech, I
nationalist Buddhist Monk U Wira
Thu is writing this letter to you.
When you came to us, we had treated
you and your photographer with
hospitability. You know we had done
our best to help you and your
photographer to get what you want.
We had helped you only with the
good volition that we want the media
and correspondents get the true
facts. We helped you because we
respect western liberal media like
Times and we expected you wouldn’t
make lies to the people of the world.
And we did not think you wouldn’t
break ethic and responsibility of
media. Now I know that you are the
worst visitors we have ever had. I
could not see the hatred behind your
smiles. I could not see your
ruthlessness under your tender
actions. I could not see your deceit
under your sweet words it is like
blade covered by honey. I did not
think that a gentle and beautiful girl
like you have the ruthless heart of
performing savages attack on us to be
heard all over the world. I could not
think that because of my background
may be as you said I was a vagabond.
I had told you that those names such
as Shaved Head Nazi, Neo Nazi,
Burmese Bin Laden were given by
Muslims on Facebook. And then
liberal media like you dare use the
word like “The Buddhist Monk, The
Title "Burmese Binladen" I believe
(think) you admit your dirty mind by
deliberately using the word “The
Buddhist Monk” then followed by the
word “With the man in burgundy
robes.” You are not a lady with high
moral ground and you are same as
dirty minded as extremists all over
the world. Muslims are also like you
want me to strip of the robe. They do
not revere me as a Monk and call me
“the man in the robe.” My preaching
is not burning with hatred as you
say. Only your writing is full of hate
speech. We can forgive the
misunderstanding. We can forgive
wrong conclusion. But will you deny
that your hatred words targeted me
to tarnish my reputation. Please
recheck your words and the words
that I preached. “Now is not the time
for calm.” “Now is the time to rise up
to make your blood boil.” These are
your words. Now I show my words.
969 is for peace, We should preserve
these noble reputations of Buddha,
Dhamma and Sangha. For our
National cause, our Culture and our
Faith, We will avoid terror act.
Upholding three gems (Buddha,
Dhamma, Sangha) We will perform
with honesty, diligence and
determined attempts. For our
national cause, We will carry out it
warmly without ignorance.” These are
my words. It is clear that you made
savage attack against me by
comparing my words and your words.
I preach people not to react with
lawlessness, but you accused me of
terrorist. You tried to draw a picture
of me as a person who aggravate the
situation by hate speech and fuelling
to make offensive attack, where I am
preaching people to perform with
honesty, diligence and determined
attempts to preserve our value. I
preach people to carry out national
cause warmly without ignorance, than
you gave the world bad impression of
me who is trying to boil the blood of
You dare do that. With sustained
loving-kindness, Ven. Wira Thu ... 4222939112
