General Kicked Off Facebook Can Still Glorify Military at Grandiose MuseumBreaking News
tags: Myanmar, facebook, Min Aung Hlaing
In the colossal museum built by Myanmar’s military to honor itself, the general barred from Facebook has his face up everywhere.
His portrait graces the cavernous entrance hall of the museum, with its soaring ceilings and marble floors. In an exhibition recounting Myanmar’s martial history, his photo is at the top of a pyramid of 32 framed shots of other military leaders.
In other halls, his image hangs alone.
For years, Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, one of the most powerful people in Myanmar, presided over ruthless campaigns targeting minority groups along Myanmar’s borders.
