Wirathu surrenders to police in Myanmar as voting near

Buddhist Monk Viruthu has surrendered before police, who have been seeking his arrest for over a year for insulting comments he made about the country’s leader, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.  

Wirathu is a Burmese Buddhist monk, and the communal leader of the anti-Muslim movement in Myanmar. He has been accused of conspiring to persecute Muslims in Myanmar through his speeches, although he claims to be a peaceful preacher and not to have advocated violence—which is disputed by others. Facebook banned his page on the charge of spreading religious hatred towards other communities, after repeated warnings to not post religiously inflammatory content.
