The Burmese actor and model, Paing Takhon, who went viral early this year after photos of him becoming a monk for 10 days, has allegedly been detained by the military.

On 8 April, his manager said on Facebook that the actor was taken away at 5am and was really sick when he was detained.

“He is really sick currently so we couldn’t change the place on time for his safety. Please speak up for him and pray for his safety,” he said.

According to Paing Takhon’s sister, police officers and soldiers apparently showed up at his house in eight vehicles to make the arrest.

ဒီနေ့ မနက် ၅နာရီမှာ ရဲနဲ့စစ်သား ကား 8 စီးနဲ့ ပိုင်တံခွန်ကို လာဖမ်းသွားကြပါပြီမြောက်ဒဂုံအိမ်မှာ လာဖမ်းသွားတာပါSpeak…

His Instagram account has also been removed with no clear reason why.

According to Khaosod English, Paing Takhon has been openly condemning Myanmar’s military coup since its launch in February.

He has also demanded the release of State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and other key members of the opposition movement.

“We strongly condemn Military coup. We demand immediate release of state counseller Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint, civilian government ministers and elected members of parliament,” Paing wrote online on Tuesday (6 April).

“We demand to respect 2020 election results and form new civillian government soonest by NLD led parliament.”


Earlier in March, Paing Takhon criticised the military for shutting down the internet and called for internet across Myanmar to be restored.

“The illegal coup has been shutting down mobile internet since 15 March to cover up their brutal methods and control live broadcasts on the ground,” he said, according to The Irrawaddy.

“This is the third time since the coup that the internet has been cut off, which is a violation of basic human rights. The military council has committed a number of crimes against humanity.”

“We strongly oppose the military council’s internet cut-off and call for the immediate return of our mobile internet.”

Paing Takhon was also photographed flashing the three-fingered salute, an anti-authoritarian symbol that has been adopted by the people protesting the military coup.
