A video showing a monk slapping a foreigner on a train in Thailand has gone viral. Apparently the foreigner was seated on another seat when he was asked by two women to move to the seat next to the monk as women are not allowed to have contact with a monk. The foreigner obliged and asked the monk if he could sit next to him. The monk for unknown reason was angry and told the foreigner that he did not know what he was talking about. The foreigner then answered "fine" and took up the seat. It was believed the monk thought the foreigner had uttered a deroggatory at hm as the word sounded like "fai", meaning "buffalo". The monk was angry , stood up and slapped the foreigner.
