In Politics there is No Permanent Friends or Enemies, Only Permanent Interests.
The Monks led by U Wira Thu and Radical Rakhine Monks are either affiliated to the hardliners in Myanmar Military and Rakhine Terrorists who are against Islam and Muslims of Myanmar. So we opposed them.
2007 Saffron Revolution Monks led by U Gambira and Kyaukpadaung demonstrator Monks are affiliated to the Democracy loving people and showed kindness and support to Muslims of Myanmar. So there is nothing wrong that all the Muslims of Myanmar support the 2007 Saffron Revolution Monks led by U Gambira and Kyaukpadaung demonstrator Monks.
And all the Buddhists must understand that we, all the Muslims of Myanmar are not against Buddhists or monks or U Thein Sein’s government or Myanmar Military or Daw Suu led NLD or Rakhines or any Ethnic Minorities. We love and respect all of them BUT hate and oppose to the hardliners or radicals or extremists or Racist Terrorists who are using the Muslims and Islam as a scapegoat for their political gains and agenda.
All the Muslims of Myanmar are ready to give our hands of friendship to anyone who is willing to open their fists and ready to shake hands with us. (As our respected President Mr. Obama had said.)
And I was shocked to watch the BBC article that stated that stretching the open bare hand is descended from the tradition in the hostile ancient times revealing that there were no weapon in the hand to harm the opponent. I remembered that giving “Salaam” or “Peace be upon you” in Islam and Shalom by Israel is also started in the hostile ancient time, declaring that one is coming in peace but not to fight or harm the opponent host.
I hope that we all could stay together and join our hands in peace and could work for our beloved Myanmar for its prosperity and progress.
If we are greedy, selfish and just fight to get a larger portion of our economic pie, see, what happened to the present Arakan and Kachin state. Just look at the fruits of power-sharing and cooperation of U Thein Sein with Daw Suu. We need to work together to bake a bigger pie and all could have a bigger share without robbing from others.
Combined force of Myanmar Military, USDP, U Paing and U Thein Sein is so powerful and rich. Actually generosity will make you all great. If you all treat all the people including the Minorities with tender love, kindness and fairly, I hope all of the different races and religious groups would love you all and there would be peace and prosperity in Myanmar.
