Some unscrupulous persons deliberately destroyed the YMBA (Young Men’s Buddhist Association) building located on Yay Kyaw street in Pazundaung Township of Yangon Region.
About 20 unidentified suspects attempted to enter by destroying the fence of the building at about 8 pm on 1 March but to no avail. Therefore, they destroyed the YBMA signboard, glasses used in windows and three air conditioners. They also painted curse words on the walls and attempted to destroy the State Flag and Sasana Flag.
Moreover, some protesters shouted out slangs in front of the building on the evening of 28 February.
Therefore, YBMA also released a statement that such doings seemed to defame the YMBA that fought for Myanmar’s Independence and led the national liberation movement, and show disrespect for Myanmar’s history, country and Buddha Sasana.
A case was opened against the suspects at Pazundaung Myoma police station.–MNA
