We were very disappointed with what happened during Black Day, 8 Jan 2017. What a lousy way to start the New Year. After one year of trying to get answers from SGM, many of us are burnt out. It’s draining us emotionally and physically.

We were very disappointed with what happened during Black Day, 8 Jan 2017. What a lousy way to start the New Year. After one year of trying to get answers from SGM, many of us are burnt out. It’s draining us emotionally and physically.

Four months ago, before we launched Daylight, we started with a survey on whether you will sign a petition letter demanding the resignation of the ECC. You can view the result here. Much later, we followed up with a poll on whether people will resign.

Looking at the inhumane way the leaders were sacked on Black Day, we think there is going to be another round in May. Before they sack us and throw slanderous accusation at us for being anti-Gakkai and anti-Sensei, we think it is better we resign as a form of protest. We retain our dignity and continue to fight in grassroot as members. We have stronger voice as a members because leaders of SGM should serve members, right?

We are quite sure many leaders have thought about resigning but many wondered how effective it is. We may not know but we are convinced that if there is a big number of leaders who tendered the letter, the message will be loud and clear. Only in unity and in numbers can we wake the top leadership up from their arrogance.

We are also aware of how difficult it is to organize a mass resignation at the grassroot while trying to keep the identity of the organizer secret. It is not easy to take a lead on organizing in case SGM leaders zoomed in to persecute the organizer. And then, how do you organize one at nationwide level?

Therefore, Daylight decide to give this a try. Here’s how it will work.

1. This is a simple resignation letter.


2. You fill up your name, email address, date and leadership area.

3. You submit online and Daylight will email to SGM HQ. We will also copy you (and only you) the letter. Your identity is safe with us.

4. We will also print and send a hard copy to SGM via registered Pos Laju.

5. First cutoff date where we will email and print to SGM is on 30 January 2017.

6. Second wave of email and printing will be on 12 February 2017.

7. If you don’t like us to do it, please feel free to print this form and email SGM or send to your Chapter leader by hand. The reason we hope you can do it via Daylight is so that we can count how many people and therefore report to you the numbers, so you know whether it is effective or not.

8. If you have recently resigned and would like to do again so we can count the number, please submit again.

9. Daylight’s initiative to organize this resignation campaign is endorsed by numerous grassroots leaders (Han/District/Chapter). As we know, grassroots is the driving force for sustainable change in SGM. This endorsement have given us new hope, a new daylight. The fight shall continue and it’s imbue with the spirit of “Same Mind with Nichiren Daishonin”.

10. Resigning as leaders doesn’t mean that we are leaving Soka Gakkai. We shall remain in the Soka Gakkai and continue practising faith based upon Nichiren Daishonin’s Gosho.

11. Always remember that we resign due to disagreement with SGM’s mismanagement practices and it has nothing related to Nichiren Buddhism. Daylight will continue to uphold Soka Gakkai’s interpretation of Nichiren Buddhism based on Nikko Shonin and Nichikan Shonin’s doctrinal interpretation in addition to contemporary interpretation of the 3 successive Presidents of Soka Gakkai.
