Former yellow-shirt monk calls on the devout to pray for monarchy

Suwit Thongprasert, or Phra Buddha Isara as he was known before being defrocked, led a group of royalists to the Bangkok City Pillar Shrine on Tuesday to pray for the safety of the monarchy.

He said he will travel to North on Saturday and the South from November 26 to 29 to say prayers at other city pillar shrines, and will also try to persuade members of the red-shirt movement to help protect the nation and the monarchy.

“We found a few red-shirt people in Roi Et participating in events to protect the monarchy and the country after some politicians stopped them from joining us,” he said.

Suwit was a member of the yellow-shirt People’s Alliance for Democracy, which was formed in 2013 to “eradicate the Thaksin [Shinawatra] regime”.

The red-shirt movement came together in 2006 after the elected government of Thaksin Shinawatra was ousted by the military.

Suwit said the royalists who gathered outside Parliament on Tuesday to protest against charter change will express their opinions peacefully.

He also said that lawmakers should accept some parts of the Internet Law Reform Dialogue (iLaw)’s draft because they benefit the country, society, economy and the environment.
