An interview with a Buddhist Monk named U Wirathu was shared on social media this past weekend. During the interview, the monk describes his concern with the Islamic caliphate taking over Myanmar and putting the Buddhist culture and society at risk. "If every race and religion will become good, genuine friends, there is no reason we can't live together peacefully," Wirathu said.

"Whether we live together peacefully or not is not up to the Burmese people. It depends on the Muslims. They are devouring the Burmese people, destroying Buddhism and Buddhist order, forcefully taking actions to establish Myanmar as an Islamic country and forcefully implementing them," he said. "If they don't do these things, then we can be peaceful." The interviewer asks Wirathu what he thinks would happen if half of Myanmar becomes Muslim compared to the small percentage of Muslims there are now in the city.
"Muslims are like African carps," the Buddhist monk said. "They breed rapidly, have violent behavior and eat its own kind and other fishes. They also destroy the natural resources and beauty underwater. Even though they are the minority, our entire race has been suffering a great deal under the burden of the minority. The majority Burmese have not intruded, corrupted or abused them but we have been suffering under their burden. That is why if there are as many Muslims as there are Buddhists Myanmar could never be at peace."
Wirathu shared his opinion in a calm and collected manner without bigotry or hate, he only stated objective facts, many of which apply to dozens of cultures that have suffered at the hands of the 'minority' as he calls the Islamic caliphate. It is refreshing to see an honest opinion without the candy-coated, white-washed twist of political correctness that is refusing to allow people to speak the truth.
