Myanmar military-monks destroyed a Masjid in Bago with the tactic approval of police and soldiers guarding the Masjid

May I present what I know, about that unfortunate incidence regarding the destroying of the Masjid

This is the photo of the North Zaingnaing No.5 Road Masjid at Bago (Pegu). At that time, we already got the news that some Buddhist Monks were coming to destroy the Masjid.

Because of that, about 50 Muslim youths waited in the Masjid to defend and fight back the thugs. As the police and Military had a (fake) road block, the monks could not come from the main road. So they tried to come in from the market-bridge road (Zay Taddar). Some of them even crossed the stream. Than only we knew that they were the fake monks as they wore the military uniforms underneath their saffron robes and were fully equipped with walkie-talkies.

At the market road (Zae Lann) there were few Monasteries. There were a lot of monks at Kya-khat-wine Monastery. But no one was allowed to join the mob. The head Abbot was very strict with discipline. Three young student monks just followed the mob to watch because of curiosity but the Abbot caned, disrobed and dismissed them from the Monastery.

​ Once the police noticed that Muslim youths were waiting in the Masjid, they went and told the youths not to watch there but to go back home as they (police) were going to give security for the Masjid’s safety. They also give assurance to the Masjid trustees as if they would give full security to the Masjid.

On the opposite side of the road in front of the Masjid, the soldiers were positioned as if they were going to protect the Masjid.

Once the “bald dogs” (fake monks) came, police give way to them to start destroying the Masjid. Actually the police came to the Masjid to protect the monks from the defensive resistant attack from the Muslim youths. The two neighbors on the sides of the Masjids were Muslim houses. In front there was Attasia and Masjid’s Wakaffed hall.

​These photos were taken by a tourist from the rest-house and published on Google. The authorities even later tried to search the photographer at the rest-house.
The same modus operandi was practiced in Min Hla town and Kyowt Pin Kauk town, bluffing the Muslims that Military would give security and even asked the “protection fees” but at last Masjids were damaged.

These were all done by the Military government. We are still longing for a really good leader.

    မဟာျမတ္မုနိဘုရားၾကီး ဗိုက္ေဖာက၏ေကာက္ေၾကာင္း”
    ============================================

    မႏၲေလးျမိဳ႔က မဟာျမတ္မုနိဘုရားႀကီးကို နဝတလက္ထက္ အထက္လူႀကီးဆိုသူမ်ား အမိန႔္ျဖင့္ လူမသိသူမသိ ဝမ္းဗိုက္ေတာ္ေဖာက္တဲ့ကိစၥတစ္ခု ၁၉၉၆ခုႏွစ္ ဇူလိုင္လတြင္ ျဖစ္ခဲ့​ေလသည္။

    တရက္၊ တရက္ႏွင့္ ရုပ္ပြားေတာ္ကို သကၤန္းေတာ္ျဖင့္ လႊမ္းထားသည္မွာ တပတ္ၾကာလာေသာအခါ မသကၤာစရာကိစၥ ျဖစ္ေနၿပီမို႔ မႏၱေလးသံဃာေတာ္မ်ား ရုပ္ပြားေတာ္ကို သကၤန္းဖယ္ရန္ ေတာင္ဆိုၾကေသာေၾကာင့္ ရုပ္ပြားေတာ္ကို ဗိုက္ေဖာက္ထားသည့္ကိစၥ ဘူးေပၚသလိုေပၚကာ မႏၱေလးတၿမိဳ႕လံုး သံဃာေတာ္မ်ားႏွင့္ ၿမိဳ႔ခံမ်ား မခံမရပ္နိုင္ျဖစ္ၿပီး ထိုကိစၥကို ျပဳလုပ္ခဲ့ေသာ တာဝန္ရွိသူမ်ားႏွင့္ ခြင့္ျပဳခဲ့ေသာ ဆရာေတာ္ႀကီးမ်ားအား တနိုင္ငံလံုးသိေအာင္ ေျဖရွင္းေပးရန္ ေတာင္ဆိုမႈမ်ား ျဖစ္လာေတာ့သည္။

    ထိုကိစၥသည္ မရိုးမသားျပဳလုပ္ထားေသာ ကိစၥျဖစ္ေသာေၾကာင့္ နဝတ စစ္အစိုးရအေနျဖင့္ တနိုင္ငံလံုးသိေအာင္ တရားဝင္ ေျဖရွင္းျခင္းမွာ မျဖစ္နိုင္သမို႔ ထံုစံအတိုင္ ကုလား၊ ဗမာ အဓိကရုဏ္းကို ရုပ္လံုးေဖၚေတာ့သည္။ “ဘုန္းႀကီးတူမကို ရွပ္ဖီးဆိုတဲ့ ကုလားက သားမယားျပဳက်င့္ၿပီး ဗုဒၶဘာသာကို ေစာ္ကားေမာ္ကားေျပာဆိုကာ ထိုကေလးမအား ရိုက္ႏွက္သည္။

    ထို႔ေၾကာင့္ အမ်ိဳးဘာသာသာသနာအတြက္ ကုလားမ်ားကိုရိုက္၊ ဗလီမ်ားကို ဖ်က္ၾကဆိုၿပီး” ျပႆနာႀကီးတခု ေပၚေပါက္လာကာ ဘုရားဗိုက္ေဖာက္သူ တရားခံမ်ားဆီမွ ျမွားဦးသည္ ဘုမသိဘမသိ ဘယ္ကမွန္းမသိတဲ့ ျဖစ္စဥ္ေၾကာင့္ ကုလားဘက္ ျမွားဦးလွည့္သြားေတာ့သည္။

    မႏၱေလးမွသည္ ၿမိဳ႕အေတာ္မ်ားမ်ားကို ျဖတ္၍ ရန္ကုန္သို႔ေရာက္ေသာအခါ မႏၱေလးမဟာျမတ္မုနိဘုရားႀကီးအား ကုလားမ်ားက ဗိုက္ေဖာက္ၿပီး ေရႊမ်ား ခြာယူၾက သည္ဆိုသည္အထိ ခ်ဲ႕ကားမႈမ်ားျဖစ္လာၿပီး မႏၱေလး၊ ရန္ကုန္ အပါအဝင္ ၿမိဳ႕အေတာ္မ်ားမ်ားတြင္ ကုလား၊ဗမာ အဓိကရုဏ္းမ်ားျဖစ္ပြားခဲ့ရၿပီး။ ေသေၾက ပ်က္စီးမႈမ်ားျဖင့္ အဆံုးသတ္ကာ ဘုရားႀကီး ဗိုက္ေဖာက္သည့္ကိစၥ ေမွးမွိန္ေပ်ာက္ကြယ္သြားေတာ့သည္။
    နဝတ စစ္အစိုးရသည္ ထိုမွ်ႏွင့္ အားရၿပီးဆံုးၿပီးဟု မထင္လိုက္ႏွင့္ မွားေပးလိမ့္မည္။

    ဘုရားႀကီး ဝမ္းဗိုက္ေဖာက္တဲ့ကိစၥေဖၚထုတ္ရန္ ဦးေဆာင္ေသာ သံဃာမ်ားအား ဖမ္းဆီးေတာ့သည္။ ဦးေဆာင္သံဃာတပါးျဖစ္ေသာ ဦးမေဟာ္သဓလည္း စစ္ကိုင္း သံဃာေဆးရံုတြင္ နာမက်န္း၍ ေဆးကုသခံေနရာမွ ေထာက္လွန္းေရးမ်ား၏ ဖမ္းဆီးျခင္းကို ခံရေတာ့သည္။ စစ္ေၾကာေရးတြင္ ကုလား၊ ဗမာ အဓိကရုဏ္းကိစၥ ဟေတာင္မဟပဲ ဘုရားႀကီးကိစၥႏွင့္ ပတ္သက္ၿပီးသာ ရိုက္ႏွက္ ေမးျမန္း စစ္ေဆးခံခဲ့ရသည္။

    စဖမ္းစဥ္ကာလထဲက သကၤန္းကို ဆြဲခၽြတ္ လူဝတ္လဲခိုင္းၿပီး ဖမ္းဆီး ေခၚေဆာင္လာကာ စစ္ေၾကာေရးစခန္းသို႔ အေရာက္တြင္ ဝိုင္းဝန္းထိုးႀကိတ္ ၾကသည္။

    ဦးဇင္းကို ဒီလို ရိုင္းရိုင္းစိုင္းစိုင္း မဆက္ဆံပါနဲ႔ ေကာင္းေကာင္းေမးပါ မင္းတို႔ သိခ်င္တာ အကုန္ေျပာမယ္လို႔ ေျပာေတာ့ မင္းကခုထိ ဦးဇင္း လုပ္ေနတုန္းလားကြဆိုၿပီး စစ္ေထာက္လွန္းေရးမ်ားက ထိုးႀကိတ္တြန္းလွဲ၍ သိကၡာခ်ေပးမယ္ဆိုကာ ေခါင္းကို ေျခေထာက္မ်ားျဖင့္ ဝိုင္းနင္းၾကေတာ့သည္။
