Other devotees could be seen walking past the white car in a single lane because the vehicle was blocking most of the space.

The frustrated monk told the devotee to move the car away. Instead of complying, the man in the car retorted, “Did you forget to take your medicine or did you take the wrong one?”

Angered by the man’s response, the monk went into a tirade and said, “What are you talking about? You’re the one at fault. You’ve blocked the road and a lot of cars are queuing up behind you! You’re so unreasonable!”

The two men traded more angry words before the car finally drove off.

The monk isn’t wrong

Netizens were confused as to why the monk was painted as the faulty party in the incident.

They pointed out that the driver and the man in the car were selfish for blocking the road and were too stubborn to leave.

Some empathised with the monk and said the monk must have been very patient before the outburst.

Just like everyone else, a monk has feelings too and netizens said the monk did not use any bad words.

Netizens agreed that the man in the car was stubborn and praised the monk for dealing with the situation the best he could.

Who do you think is at fault here?
