‘The Patriotic Burmese Monks Union’


As reported in the Democratic Voice of Burma by Naw Noreen the National league for Democracy have cancelled a literature event because ‘The Patriotic Burmese Monks Union’ objected to the participation of two Muslim speakers, claiming ‘it would be inappropriate for Muslims to make public speeches on Union Day’.

I have talked more about this previously and would consider this another clear example of Ethnocentric Buddhism.
