Notification to World Alliance of Buddhists Leaders (WABL)

Case No. 01-2015: Ashin Wirathu & 969 Movement

 

NOTIFICATION TO THE World Alliance of Buddhists Leaders (WABL)

On August 08, 2017, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights communicates with the World Alliance of Buddhists Leaders (WABL) as a result to the news that in 2016 they have decided to give the “World Buddhist Outstanding Leader Award” to the PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION OF MYANMAR – MA BA THA (Organization for the Protection of Race and Religion), arguing that it is a peace organization, although it is led by Ashin Wirathu, who has been found Responsible for the charges of Discrimination, Social Segregation, Apology of violence and False Buddhism. In addition, in 2016 the International Buddhist Ethics Committee declared the PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION OF MYANMAR – MA BA THA as a fraudulent and illicit organization violating both the legal code (vinaya) of Buddhist Law and the International Human Rights Law, since it showed public support for the government of Thein Sein, who is responsible for Genocide, Ethnic Cleansing and Crimes against Humanity.

Therefore, the “World Buddhist Outstanding Leader Award” given in Thailand is declared illegal by the International Buddhist Ethics Committee, stating that the authorities who committed this violation of Buddhist Law will be held accountable for this misconduct. While records indicate that Dr. Pornchai Pinyapong gave this award to the PATRIOTIC ASSOCIATION OF MYANMAR – MA BA THA and even donated a lot of money for this organization to have a radio station, Dr. Pornchai Pinyapong certainly lost his office as President of the World Fellowship of Buddhist Youth (WFBY) after having committed such acts, reason by which the International Buddhist Ethics Committee exculpates the WFBY. However, it should be mentioned that the “World Buddhist Outstanding Leader Award” was given at an event organized by senior authorities of the Supreme Sangha Council of Thailand, which deserves a thorough investigation and total ethical repudiation.

With a spirit of Reconciliation (Maitri),

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

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