Notice to Thai Government

CASE 23-2017: YOGA BEER

NOTICE TO THAI GOVERNMENT

On May 2nd, 2017, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is communicating with the Thai Government as a result of news that the Thai Minister of Public Health has decided to initiate an investigation against the Yoga Beer movement, which was going to hold an event in Thailand with the excuse of promoting health. As Yoga Beer actually promotes the intake of alcohol, and it is considered a crime punishable with imprisonment in Thailand, the Minister of Public Health believes that this activity could be illegal under Thai law and it should be investigated by the police.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights calls on the Thai Government, especially the Ministry of Public Health, in order to ban the Yoga Beer events in Thailand, which would be a great ethical example for the rest of Asia. This request is due to the fact that the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights has found Yoga Beer as Responsible for “SPIRITUAL FRAUD” for promoting drug use, but has also found it “Responsible” for “INTERNATIONAL CRIME AGAINST CULTURAL HERITAGE OF HUMANITY”. This is because Yoga has recently been declared by UNESCO as a cultural heritage of humanity, so that there are international human rights conventions protecting Yoga from being destroyed or manipulated by criminal acts.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the Thai Government to support this issue, which is linked not only to Thai Public Health but also to the compliance with Human Rights at an international level. We look forward to continuing to work together.

With a spirit of Reconciliation,

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

President and Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
