Bogus monks target tourists for monetary donations

Begging is an offence in Singapore. Those who have at least two previous begging records can be fined up to $3,000 and jailed for up to two years.

各大佛教流派中,只有泰佛、缅佛、斯里兰卡佛等南传佛教的僧人出外化缘,而其中,泰佛僧人护照上
有注明“法师”(Phar)字样。如果遇到僧尼向公众要求捐钱建庙,可要求他们出示新加坡当局发出的筹款准证。

假和尚一般在组屋区、巴刹和小贩中心出没,但近期开始转移阵地,不仅大胆进驻商场,还专挑旅客众多的景点下手,佛总有意和旅游局合作,杜绝这类不法行为。
