To take retributive action against those who make hate speech

The entire people of Myanmar are ardently working together with the democratically elected government to upgrade our country to be able to firmly stand stall among the nations with the same standard in economy, education, living standard etc. As we have already known that our country lagged behind the other neighboring countries for several years due to internal conflicts or civil war and mismanagement of the successive regimes. We have human resources, natural resources, water resources and abundant arable lands. Being patriotic, we do not want our country’s position to be lower than any other countries in every aspect of development. The country Myanmar represents all diverse national races in Myanmar and whose GDP must be as equal as other people in the South East Asia. We are striving hard for our people to prosper and for our country’s economy to grow with concerted efforts in cooperation with the incumbent government in unison. Amid doing hard work for rehabilitating the nation by the people , some unscrupulous persons intend to  destroy the stability and unity.
Besides, they create conflict among the national races and people professing different religious faith. Public should be aware of their conspiracy and find out the mastermind behind the curtain. All the peace loving citizens dislike and denounce the malicious intention of the marplots by meddlesome persons. In fact these persons are the destructive elements for our country which is already on the road to democratization process. The persons who make hate speech are the trouble makers as well as destructive elements for peace and tranquility in the country. Hate speech is defined in the Wikipedia as follows;
Hate speech, outside the law, is speech that attacks a person or group on the basis of attributes such as gender, ethnic origin, religion, race, disability, or sexual orientation. In the law of some countries, hate speech is any speech, gesture or conduct, writing, or display which is forbidden because it incites violence or prejudicial action against or by a protected individual or group, or because it disparages or intimidates a protected individual or group. The law may identify a protected group by certain characteristics.
We all must avoid hate speech in order to maintain peace and unity in our society though we have diverse culture, diverse religion and diverse ethnicity. Even then, we ought not to despise or insult others those who are of different religion, race and culture in our country. In other words, those who belong to different religion, race and culture are obliged to respect and understand our faith, tradition and race. Hate speech is a kind of misleading technique to attack or fuel a certain community. The communal violence is created by the hate speech indeed. In some countries, due to the hate speech, the communities were plunged into chaos and mayhem. We should be mindful to avoid hate speech and be aware of the impact of hate speech on every society across the world.
The governments concerned tackled difficulties to restore the security and order in these countries. The thoughtful and sensible persons in any society do not support or create hate speech. They utterly avoid hate speech and bring the marplots to justice. This shows that all good and thoughtful citizens wish their country to be peaceful, safe and secure at all time. The good and thoughtful citizens always cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating who the destructive elements are.
In Myanmar, the incumbent government is going to promulgate a law which would forbid the hate speech and prescribe the penalties for those commit or break the law. This is an encouraging news or plan because the hate speech is the threat to any community and society. We the peace-loving citizens heartily welcome the law which obstructs hate speech in Myanmar. Anyone who commits hate speech must pay for his sin because that act impairs the peace and tranquility of a certain society or community severely. Normally, all the religious teachings, spiritual enlightenment and practices are based on compassion, loving kindness and humanity. Despite having goodness in any religion, a very handful of unscrupulous persons insult people who believe in different religious faiths by using hate speech as an attacking tool. Unfortunately, sometimes, the simple and naïve persons fall into the trap of hate speech and they become the accomplices of the makers of hate speech. Thus the group which creates hate speech gets a certain number of members by using the tactic of religious indoctrination. These members are being indoctrinated by the mastermind to launch hate speech as possible as they can. These persons behave as if they protect and propagate the certain religious faith. Actually, hate speech makers are merely the destructive elements in the society. They are neither patriots nor the pious persons of a certain faith. They do not do pious acts but they do only hostile acts to different races and people who believe in different religions indeed.
The communal violence and religious conflicts are caused by hate speech. Their acts do not contribute to the country’s socio-economic development. We sensibly denounce the act of hate speech and persons who create hate speech in our society. It is our bounden duty to bring the destructive elements and hate speech makers to justice so that the enduring peace and unity will ever prevail in our society. Hatred leads to chaos and compassion brings happiness in any human society indeed!
