Religious leaders need to clearly clarify the misunderstanding over the coup d’état due to internal and external instigations, said Vice-Chairman of the State Administration Council Deputy Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services Commander-in-Chief (Army) Vice-Senior General Soe Win in meeting religious leaders of RC Christinity, Islam, Hinduism and Kawhtoeboe (Tagundaing) at the hall of Kayah State government in Loikaw yesterday.
In his address, the Vice-Senior General pointed out that participation in religious organizations is important for the sake of the state. As religious leaders of influence over those who have faith in respective religions in respective areas, they are capable of serving the interests of relevant regions. So, they have to cooperate with the government in peace and stability of the region through the advice of religions. If so, Kayah State will have peace and stability as quickly as possible and strive for the development of the regions as usual. Security forces are restricted to abide by the rule of engagement. Although they performed controlling the terror attacks with the least strength at the lowest level along with the state of emergency under the law, terrorists killed innocent people and posed threats to them. According to the duty assigned under the Constitution, the Tatmadaw maintains three kinds of powers in accord with the law for ensuring the maturity of democracy, so the terrorists commit the destruction over the region by showing the reason that the Tatmadaw performed the coup d’état.
As the coup d’état means revocation of the existing Constitution and drawing and approving a new Constitution to be changed to a system that the coup d’état leader and the majority of the people aspire, the handover of power depends on the coup d’état leader. Now, the State Administration Council maintaining the State responsibilities does not have any reason to revoke the Constitution (2008) approved by the people and the Tatmadaw. Due to no reason to revoke the Constitution, three kinds of State power are being maintained within the limited period involved in the provisions of the State of Emergency mentioned in the Constitution to solve the processes of the emergency period. In line with the fifth point of the Five-Point Road Map, the free and fair multiparty democracy general election will be held in the set period to hand over the State power to the winning party.
Religious leaders need to clearly clarify the misunderstanding over the coup d’état due to internal and external instigations. As the State of Emergency has been limited under the Constitution, all should not misunderstand the acts of the State. All don’t forget that their region restores peace and prosperity thanks to the peace restoration after negotiating the peace process. Misunderstanding and different opinions among ethnic nations cannot develop the region and the nation. Section 362 of the Constitution mentions that “the Union also recognizes Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Animism as the religions existing in the Union at the day of the coming into operation of this Constitution”. So, they all have an equal term of rights. They all are responsible for regional development and so do in unity. Then, religious leaders discussed matters related to their respective religions and gave wishes. SAC member U Saw Daniel gave a supplementary discussion on the peace and stability of Kayah State and regional development measures.
The Vice-Senior General responded to the discussions and attended to their needs. — MNA
