Buddhist scholar and leader Satyapriya Mohathero passes away

Born in Cox’s Bazar’s Ramu in 1930, he became a monk in 1950 and took over as the president of the Bangladesh Sangharaja of Bhikkhu Mahasabha in 2006.

He was awarded the second highest civilian award of Bangladesh Ekushey Padak in 2015 for social work.  

The Ramu monastery had provided shelter to large number of people during Liberation war of Bangladesh 1971 in the face of Pakistani atrocities.

However  in September 2012 it suffered massive damage as mobs attacked it angered by an alleged post on Social Media derogatory to Islam.

President Abdul Hamid and Prime Minster Sheikh Hasina have condoled the death of the revered Buddhist Monk of Bangladesh.
