Military attack against Buddhist Monks in Myanmar condemned
Daily News (Sri Lanka), Thursday, October 25, 2007
The World Buddhist Sangha Council expressed its heartfelt concern and strong condemnation and displeasure towards the military rulers regarding the recent unfortunate incidents happening in Myanmar, one of the prominent Buddhist countries.
"First we express our sympathy to those affected and share the pains and suffering experienced by non-violent innocent Buddhist Monks and civilian masses. The Buddhist monks who have come forward to voice out the continuous hardships of their people through peaceful mass protests in order to request the Government to take measures to alleviate the suffering of the people," the release says.
"We are horrified to understand through International Media, the harsh, brutal and inhumane way the rulers are going on crushing and suppressing the unarmed protesters, by using their military might.
People watched in utter disgust and sorrow the rotten bodies of Buddhist Monks tortured and killed by the military, floating in the rivers makes us extremely sad and to know the precious and spiritual lives of many monks and poor people are lost or severely damaged by the harsh measures of the rulers."
The World Buddhist Sangha Council appeal to the United Nations Organisation to take immediate action to convince and compel the Government of Myanmar to exercise restraint compassionately and stop killing, torturing and detaining innocent non-violent monks and civilian protesters.
World Buddhist Sangha Council is an International Buddhist Organisation of Buddhist monks around the world representing Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions.
