Supporters from Kyaw Min follow U Wirathu, the spiritual leader of the Buddhist nationalist 969 Movement, towards a stage to give a sermon at the Shwe Areleain Monastery in Kyaw Min Village, Myiamu Township. U Wirathu is an abbot in the New Maesoeyin Monastery where he leads about 60 monks and has influence over more than 2,500 residing there. He travels the country giving sermons to religious and laypeople encouraging Buddhists to shun Muslim business and communities. /Felix Features
