Turmoil at World Fellowship of Buddhists


 The World Fellowship of Buddhists (WFB) has issued a statement which categorily rejects a meeting held by a rival "WFBY" in Seoul, South Korea some time in February, 2017.

In a press release issued yesterday, it states that "such person or group that held the meeting in the Republic of Korea on February B.E. 2560 (2017) are not the executives that the WFB have endorsed. Any actions incurred therewith has no relevance whatsoever and does not involve the WFB and the World Fellowship of Buddhist Youth (WFBY)." 

It further states that the rightful World Fellowhip of Buddhist Youth (WFBY) was constitutionally endorsed at the General Assembly held in Seoul, Republic of Korea from 29-30th September, 2016. 

In a separate statement issued on the same day (March 2), the World Fellowhip of Buddhist Youth (WFBY) states that "any individual or party, except the current Executive Board of the WFBY, cannot refer or apply the name of the WFBY on any activities that is not certified or approved by the Executive Board of the WFBY."

The statement deems the meeting held in Seoul, the Republic of Korea on February B.E. 2560 (2017) as "not certified".
