The community of Buddhists in Thailand were paying attention to a story from the south concerning a 77 year old nun who was looking after a temple.
The nun and her supporters want justice after soldiers, police and community protection forces moved on the temple in Nakorn Sri Thammarat to evict the nun.
She says that what is really at stake here is a land dispute. After the death of the abbot years ago a local university has tried to use temple land to build on, she claimed.
Now people are trying to discredit her.
The pictures had nothing to do with her or her activities as a nun that have stretched over 30 years.
Sanook also reported that there is a lot of drug taking in and around the disputed temple.
The Sangha authorities have tried to install several abbots over the years since the old one died but the gangs have succeeded in chasing them all away.
Now the nun at the center of the drama is calling for reinstatement.
Pictures showed one monk with his left hand strategically placed over a woman’s right breast.
