Buddhist monks and Politics

Since very ancient time, Buddhist monks were always forefront of the public from nation building, society building, religious teaching, peace building, language and literature to fight liberating Burma from British and Japan invaders. But, they don’t stop there. They were at the forefront of the public to fight against General Ne Win’s totalitarian regime, General Than Shwe and General Khin Nyunt led military junta and until today they are standing at the forefront of the Burmese people for the best interest of the Burmese, religion and nation. But, their rights to vote are ignored in junta’s 2008 constitution but neither politicians nor student leaders nor ethnic leaders nor religious leaders nor MPs nor reformist generals are voicing out for them to re-gain their birth right. But, people of Burma and Buddhist Monks CAN demand amending the constitution to give Buddhist Monks to have right to vote in the elections. Buddhist Monks Must Have Voting Rights in Burma (Myanmar).
