About 50 Burmese people joined the protest in front of a house where Thabarwa Sayadaw was rented in a residential area.

While holding signs denouncing the monk who supported the military dictatorship in Myanmar, Burmese citizens protested in silence for more than two hours, despite the fact that they were not permitted to yell chants.

Eyewitnesses commented that the military junta-backed monk was hiding inside the house and dared not come out of it.
