Wirathu calls himself the ‘Burmese Bin Laden’. He is a Buddhist monk who is stoking religious hatred across Burma. His paranoia and fear, muddled with racist stereotypes and unfounded rumours, have helped to incite violence and spread misinformation in a nation still stumbling towards democracy. Wirathu speaks to the Guardian at his Masoeyein monastery in Mandalay.

I wonder what the Dalai Lama has to say about these jokers?
