The sources say the militant buddhists no longer As powerful As they once were will try to disrupt the current presidential election. They plan a protest meeting monday. They will base their protest on a new Buddhist charter signed in the last week of july by chief of state Nguyen Thieu which in effect recognizes a no militant Buddhist sect As the official Buddhist Church of South Vietnam. But behind the protests will be the Leader of the militant buddhists. Thich venerable tri Quang whose hatred of the present military government is Well known. Has support tri quangos militant buddhists. With the support of Many other Buddhist sects tried to overthrow the government of Premier Nguyen Cao by last year by calling thousands of demonstrators into the streets of Saigon and other major vietnamese cities. They succeeded in getting by to Promise elections for a constitutional Assembly and an elected government. The Assembly drafted a Constitution and a new government is being elected but with the likelihood that by and Thieu will remain at the Helm. While making concessions by also effectively crushed tri quangos militant buddhists. Tri Quang is now almost a prisoner in Saigon san Quang Pagoda. He and his disciples Are not permitted to travel to Northern Vietnam where their sects sect s strength is based. The Power of the militant buddhists has been markedly reduced. Are feuding in addition other Buddhist factions who were frightened away by tri quangos militant tactics have been feuding with the militants. The unified Buddhist Church formed to help overthrow dictator Ngo Dinh diem in 1963, now exists in name Only. The new charter signed by Thieu in july will take even More Power away from tri quangos group. The militants always had More votes in the unified Buddhist Church conventions because each province had one Delegate and tri Uang a people Are More widespread.
