Dear Mark

There’s been a lots of reports about racist and bigoted Buddhist Bin Laden , Ven. Wira Thu. He is using your great and useful Facebook for his hatred propaganda. Some people has been killed because of this Ven. Wira Thu. Most of his posts are full of hates that is against Facebook Community Rules. I have reported to close down his Facebook account but NOTHING has been changed. Once you said on Facebook as follows, I’m really excited. You wrote:

[[We aren't born hating each other. We aren't born with such extreme views. We may not be able to solve every problem, but we all have a responsibility to do what we can. I believe we can do something about the parts of our culture that teach a person to hate someone else.

It's important that Facebook is a place where people with different views can share their ideas. Debate is part of a healthy society. But when someone tries to silence others or attacks them based on who they are or what they believe, that hurts us all and is unacceptable.

There is no place for hate in our community. That's why we've always taken down any post that promotes or celebrates hate crimes or acts of terrorism -- including what happened in Charlottesville. With the potential for more rallies, we're watching the situation closely and will take down threats of physical harm. We won't always be perfect, but you have my commitment that we'll keep working to make Facebook a place where everyone can feel safe.

The last few days have been hard to process. I know a lot of us have been asking where this hate comes from. As a Jew, it's something I've wondered much of my life. It's a disgrace that we still need to say that neo-Nazis and white supremacists are wrong -- as if this is somehow not obvious. My thoughts are with the victims of hate around the world, and everyone who has the courage to stand up to it every day.

There may always be some evil in the world, and maybe we can't do anything about that. But there's too much polarization in our culture, and we can do something about that. There's not enough balance, nuance, and depth in our public discourse, and I believe we can do something about that. We need to bring people closer together, and I know we can make progress at that.]]

This is time to act what you have said. In recent article of Wall Street Journal, “Buddhist Leader Spreads Hatred of Muslims in Myanmar.” With army’s blessing, the Ven. Wirathu stokes public support for purge of ethnic Rohingya that will be enough for closing down Ven. Wira Thu account. Rohingya are innocent victims of Ethnic Cleansing and Genocide according to UN Human Rights Commision, other international organisation and world leaders. George Soros once said As a Jew in Budapest, I too was a Rohingya .

You can find on internet a lot of information about Ven. Wira Thu. His ideas and behaviours are viruses for Democratic Society. He is always attacking democratic groups including Aung San Suu Kyi without any valid reason. He doesn’t want to see peaceful and democratic communities in Burma. He used racism and religious bigotry for creating riots between different religious groups and different ethnic groups in Burma. As he is a supporter of brutal Burmese Army, he believed all of the democratic activists as his enemies. Most of his supporters are from Burmese Army who doesn’t want real democratic and fully civilian government in Burma. He has been banned for delivering religious sermons and talks in Burma by highest supreme Buddhist Monks Council. But he finds Facebook to spread his virus between Burmese people. Most of Burmese are peaceful Buddhist people and they against him strongly. But they don’t know how to shut his Facebook account down and complaining to you directly. He has had violated most Facebook rules but unfortunately Facebook Burmese teams is neglecting it. Until he changed his attitudes and behaviours, you should not allow him to use Facebook. Please help people of Burma because they’re very poor and undeveloped. According to Facebook rules, racism and religious bigotry are not totally allowed on Facebook.

Because of these reasons, we have requested you as follows:

1. Please shutdown Facebook account of Ven. Wira Thu and any related pages permanently.

2. Please ban key words of Wirathu, Wira Thu, ၀ီရသူ၊ ဦး၀ီရသူ on Facebook.

3. Please review Facebook Burmese team integrity and protocols.

Thank you, Mark and God bless you and your family.
