Fundamental extremism lurks in societal insecurity

Buddha Issara, a rogue monk with the fetish taste of violence, aye all in the name of his unholy design for power. His bizarre behaviour brings about thoughts of confusion though why not as there has been cases of oppression, regardless of faith or the colour of their robes, from within the region; from Myanmar to Indonesia, then from Malaysia to Thailand. Fundamental extremism in the name of religion creeps or bursts forth, as in the case of Issara,  into the institutional upbringing, into the cracks of anxiety and so-called patriotism, and provides nourishment for those having lost their faith in democracy and peace.
