A 9 year old boy who was brutally beaten by a 65 year old monk at a temple in Kanchanaburi has died, police have said.

 

Suphachai Suthiyano, 64, stands accused of beating Wattanapol Sisawad, nicknamed Daeng, aged 9, with a wooden stick and hitting his head against a concrete pillar.

 

Both the boy's arms were broken, he had a fractured chin, blood on the brain and wounds and bruises all over his body.

 

According to AFP, Wattanapol, who had been in hospital since the attack on 19 August fell into a coma and died as a result of his injuries on Thursday night.

 

At the time of his arrest Suphachai said he beat the boy because he was naughty and had disrupted a prayer meeting after previously nearly burning down the temple school.

 

The boy’s mother, Sukanya Tunhin, 31, said her son was ordained back in April, having decided to leave him at the temple due to the fact that she does not have work and could not afford to feed him.

 

Suphachai who now faces a murder charge, has also been defrocked following the attack.

Wow....that will certainly have some impact on him!

In Thai Culture, will impact on him, as will be considered as "loosing face", as much, a sentence, as a court will hand down!!

I’m a lapsed (whatever religion) but I’m always reminded of a line from Cathedral (CSN&Y) - “So many people have died in the name of Christ that I can’t believe it all.” Insert the name of your messiah.

Religion worst set back for humanity.

Ordained? At nine? The mind would boggle except TiT. 

 

Here we go again. You say 'TIT', while obviously you don't know a thing about this country's religious customs.

 

If you did, you'd be aware of the fact that 'ordained', in Thailand, covers a lot of different situations, marked by many different kinds of ceremonies, even though the word 'ordained' is indiscriminately used by Westerners to describe them (which in itself speaks volumes about the Western attitude).

 

Some very young kids can spend various amounts of time at the temple, and for a wide variety of reasons, after going through an 'ordination' ceremony. It does not mean they're going to be monks forever. Most of the time it's just a few days or weeks.

 

But here you are, lashing out at a country and a culture of which you obviously know very little, if anything. Do your homework before you criticize, for <deleted> sake !

 

Ah, but... this is Thai Visa. TITV.

It’s not the religions per se as most religions are about peace and love. It is the zealotry and ignorance in understanding and application that’s to blame here and in most cases of religion based abuse.

I guess you missed the first part of the paragraph, so here it is for you:

 

Suphachai who now faces a murder charge, has also been defrocked following the attack.

Not at all I think. 

He just resumes his life; who cares. Who knows?

I meant the 'defrocked' part will certainly have its impact....

...deal with it swiftly and efficiently...no press.  Justice

 

 

Why no press?   It should be as widely publicised as possible.  Punishment as a deterrent is pointless if no-one knows about the punishment.

There's discipline and then there is sadistic brutality....

Some monks need to study Buddhism a bit more !

Yes - Some monks has been saved from the society and/or the society has been saved by their removal due to different type of personal issues, disfunctionalities and/or mental disorders. This kind of invironment is not a place to raise a child...
