An Unholy Alliance Of Buddhist Terrorists

By Tariq A. Al-Maeena

Siddhartha Gautama, who became universally known as the sage Buddha, was born some 2,500 years ago in Nepal. He was a human being who became acutely enlightened in understanding life and explaining it in its simplicity. It is said that he once sat under a peepal tree for 40 days and nights to attain understanding and enlightenment and once he reached that stage he felt free from greed, hatred and ignorance, and enhanced by wisdom, compassion, tolerance and freedom.This was the message he sought to promote for the remaining years of his life to his disciples.

Unfortunately over the centuries, some of Buddha’s followers or Buddhists as they are called mutated into something far removed from the sage’s messages. Theirs has become a calling of all things evil and violent. Currently there are two such strains of Buddhists who are leading a campaign against others that is devoid of any of the sage’s messages.

One group, the Ahsin Wirathu Alliance, operating out of Burma or Myanmar, is made up of bloodthirsty Buddhists who have been terrorizing and slaughtering thousands of Myanmar’s minority Rohingya Muslims. Even Aung San Suu Kyi, a leader of the Myanmar opposition and the 1991winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, dares not venture to align herself with the cause of the displaced Rohingyas for political considerations. She has thus far been protected from any criticism for the massacres going on in her country even though some question whether she is supporting the terrorist Buddhist group which is attempting to exterminate the Muslim population in Myanmar.

Gnanasara and WirathuAnother equally vicious Buddhist group in Sri Lanka, the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), has lately begun a fierce campaign against the Tamil, Muslim and Christian minorities on the island.

Last month, events in Sri Lanka took an even more disturbing turn. Ashin Wirathu Thera, leader of the 969 Movement in Myanmar, and notorious for his anti-Islam tirades which have resulted in the slaughter of thousands of Rohingya refugees was invited by his BBS counterparts in Sri Lanka to visit the island. Time magazine has correctly described Wirathu as the “Face of Buddhist Terror”.

The meeting of two terrorist Buddhist group leaders from Myanmar and Sri Lanka does not bode well for the minorities of the island of Sri Lanka. In Myanmar, the minorities have already been subjugated to the point of being completely wiped out in some areas by acts of maximum brutality. Such acts have been muted so far in Sri Lanka, but such an unholy alliance could well spell disaster for their adversaries.

When the UN’s top human rights body launched an investigation recently into Sri Lanka’s civil war and possible war crimes against the Tamil minorities based on the recommendation of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, the Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary screamed at a press conference: “We will skin the bitch alive!” This is the same individual who flew to Burma to receive a special birthday gift from Burma’s radical monk Wirathu last month.

The mindset of this terrorist group has increasingly worried many Sinhalese who make up the majority of the population in Sri Lanka and it has greatly disturbed the many minorities who have lately witnessed an increasing number of unabashed and defiant acts against their people, places of worship and businesses. This was not Buddha’s message.

With this unholy alliance between the two terror groups in the offing, the island’s minorities are wondering if it will eventually lead to the same sort of assault and slaughter of their people as the Rohingya have faced in Myanmar. This will unquestionably lead Sri Lanka to the precipice of disaster.

        Tamils know about Buddhist terrorism from 1956, 1958, 1961, 1977 and 1983 anti-Tamil pogroms in which Sinhalese mobs killed and raped thousands of Tamils, and destroyed or looted their property with impunity when the state either kept an eye closed or participated in the mayhem.

        Now, when the Buddhist terrorists turn on Muslims and Christians, the whole world protests!

          THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED GOD’S PUNISHMENT!

          Your forefathers helped DS senanayake to rescue the 1915 rioters from the British prisons. Your guys helped these bastards to commit crimes on satanic Anagarika’s indoctrination. LOOK at the result…

          WHEN SOMEONE does a wrong. The other must prevent it at least by his tongue. Ponnabalam Arunachalam did the wrong thing. That curse as a result of that unpardonable sin came back your own brothers & sisters (sadly) as we see it today.

          What the moslems are getting is for what they did during the last 30 years in supporting the UNP/SLFP Terror guys to unleash untold misery to the Tamils.

          Its all interconnected.

          But the good news is SINHALA BUDDHSIM has achieved its real natural goal as being classified as TERRORISTS who practiced, preached and unleashed TERROR to innocent human beings from 1915 (Nearly a century old Racism/Terrorism) in this earth’s history.

          SINHALA BUDDHISM is the only remaining few EXPERT TERRORISTS with state support for nearly 100 years.

        Buddhist terrorist, Islamic terrorist, Tamil terrorists are referred as oxymoron, a figure of speech by which it produces a seemingly self-contradictory effect, as in “cruel kindness” or “to make haste slowly.”

        Any Unholy Alliance have a disastrous long term effect on those who watch hate speech and do nothing about it. The majority has not come out in the streets to protect the ‘Buddha’ teaching. The Logical conclusion is most people care less and lets face it ‘power and wealth’ is the new force.

        To Muslims,

        The planning of The Almighty Allah is better for us than our own planning, and He could deprive us from what we ask to test our patience. So let Him see from us a determined patience and we will soon see from Him what He will give us. And when we have cleaned the paths of answering (of supplication) from the stains of sin and was patient about what He has chosen for us, then every thing that happens to us is better for us whether we were given or deprived of what we have requested.

      If a person by a Muslim name is called an Islamic Terrorist, A man from the Tamil community is called a Tamil Terrorist….Its very fair and justified when these Satans are called BUDDHIST TERRORISTS.

      They go to preach in Temples, they wear the same robe that the Buddha wore, same style…so They’re Buddhist Terrorists. Whether one may like it or not…they have entered into the world list of INTERNATIONAL TERRORISM for the first time from Sri Lanka. How Proud we are!!!

      We must thank, special thanks to all Mahanayake Thero’s for their silent support lent to crimes against minority populations. Thank you, A.Dharmapala for opening up the heart for ordinary human being for Satanic activities. Banda, Sirimavo, JR, DS/Dudley, Premadasa, Chandrika, D B Wijetunga, Mahinda….Elley Gunawangsa…etc for this great feat.

      Let the World Powers send their Army with their cruise missiles like they did to Talibans in Afghanistan to destroy the Terror.

        Why blame a nation for a few sadistic individuals. Judging people on the basis of a few strays, is like eating a rotten fruit and blaming the whole tree.

        It is never the sinner that one should hate, but only the sin; for the essence of all humanity is a soul created in submission to its Creator. Whether that soul acknowledges this on a conscious level or not is a matter of grace, and this understanding enables us to look at others with compassion.

          This is not righteousness or seeking of justice.This is a display of pure ingrained hatred and vengeance. A desperate attempt to cover the shame and pain of utter defeat. One can only pity for there is no cure for this unless one over come it oneself.

            I mean, didn’t you guys wholeheartedly support the war on the Tamils?

            Didn’t you guys shower the North with Shells & Bombs?

            Didn’t you guys ate Kiribath (actually its Kerry Bath) on celebrating after total massacre of our own civillians?

            Don’t you guys celebrate and some silently approve the TERRORIST VEN. HIGH PRIEST, with HIGHEST LEVEL OF BUDDHA”S KNOWLEDGE – GNANASARA when he spout his holy filth (according to Thripitaka)?

            DID not CHAM-PUKA Ranawaka (Racist [Edited out]) warned all the minorities that he might give another NANDIKADAL to whoever crossing their murderous path?

            If take all the crimes committed by this regime, then the reply might not be cruise missiles by the US, it must be NUCLEAR, like they (US) did to Japanese Imperial forces.

            WHAT IS THE IMMEDIATE WORDS COMES OUT FROM YOU GUY’S MOUTH WHEN YOU’RE IN FIT OR RAGE???? GAHAPIYAW, MARAPIYAW…….Do anyone say SAMAWA DIYAW??? or PAW KAARAKAM NO_KARAPIYAW???????? A big no!

            WHEN YOU KILL OTHERS, ITS PATRIOTISM….haaa? Check your brains first/ Psychopaths.

        Well, one needs to punish only the Guilty and Not the Innocent.

        With Taliban and Drone attacks, the ration pf Bad guys/innocent is from 1/10 to 1/59., too high,

        However, the criminals should be punished for the crimes they committed only. Cruise missiles are Drones are good tools , but still not accurate yet.

        If we are to accept your classifying logic please tell us, why is that Pakistani nuclear bomb is notoriously known as Islamic bomb whereas there are no Hindu bombs, Christian bomb, Jewish bomb and atheist or agnostic bomb.

          originated in the middle east but you don’t call it Arab
          dance and the list is endless.The bomb was not the
          invention of Muslims but there’s an Islamic bomb which
          didn’t explode when Iraq and Afganistan were invaded!

              If communists had their bombs to spread or protect their
              ideology and Capitalists had theirs for their purpose,
              the logic was Muslims wanted it for their protection that
              is called in the name of their religion.Why do you think
              the West is so nervous of Iran’s nuclear ambition?The
              production is attributed to Iran’s religion.The bomb is
              named depending where it’s born my friend and it serves
              its master’s interest.So,no argument that we also have a
              Hindu bomb created with the support of Abdul Kalam!No
              need to think twice calling it a Hindu bomb.

        “Why are people so afraid to call a spade a spade?”

        Because they were not educated. They were just brainwashed.

        Tissa Jayatillaa sated that what he learnt at Peradeniya, University of Ceylon, was to call a spade, a spade.

        What The University Of Ceylon, Peradeniya Taught Me

        https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/what-the-university-of-ceylon-peradeniya-taught-me/

        What did the University of Ceylon and my teachers do for me? In a nutshell, they taught me to be true to myself. From this has arisen whatever other qualities of mind and heart that I possess. Let me share with you these latter as briefly as I can in the few minutes left. In the process of teaching me to be myself, they also guided me to realize:

        that race is a myth and that there are only two kinds of people on earth: human beings and
        inhuman beings. That we may speak different languages and belong to different religious groups but that deep down all of us are human beings struggling to make sense of our existence;

        that a majority of people is not always right and a minority of them not always wrong. And that I should not be afraid to belong even to a minority of one should ever my convictions lead me there;
        that I should strive hard to take care of the vulnerable and marginalized segments of humanity wherever in the world I may be;
        That I should listen to diverse points of view, consider them on their merits, and work out my own position on any given issue diligently.
        That I should take care not to be swamped either by the popular view or the dominant one if neither accords with mine. I was taught that succumbing to cheap popularity is as awful as jumping on any bandwagon for shallow gain;
        that once I had carefully worked out my own position on any subject, I should speak my truth calmly, fearlessly and call a spade a spade no matter who he or she may be or what position that person may hold;
        that I must always be a good listener and that whenever I disagree I should take care not to be disagreeable.

      Dear Tariq A. Al-Maeena and Keshi.

      “They are not BUDDHIST terrorists. They are TERRORISTS. “

      If they walk like a duck quacks like a duck, have feathers like a duck, and aren’t they ducks?

      If they preach like a Monk, shouts like a Monk, wears saffron robes like a Monk and aren’t they Buddhist Monks?

      You mean Child molesters and abuses as well? Aren’t these Monks, part of the Triple Gem? Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha-Monks?

      What about the Monks given below? Are they not Buddhist Monks?

      Read the Monk Mahanama Imaginations from 5th Century, that is the root cause of the Para-War in Lanka.

      Child Abuse by a Monk in Habaraduwa

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNSC93mPs4I

      Uploaded on May 29, 2010
      She sent her grandson to school with the idea of providing him with proper education to make him a good person. The Buddhist monk in charge of the temple asked her to send the child to the temple and she sent him there because they were poor. There was no possibility for them to pay the money for tuition fees. That was the reason why they sent the boy to the temple school.When the child began to refuse going to the temple school so adamantly, grandmother had to look for the reason. It was then only that she discovered that the child who was sent to learn good behavior, ethics and Buddha’s Dharma from the monk had in fact been abused by the monk.

      According to the Mahavamsa, even Buddha was a TERRORIST!

      CHAPTER I THE VISIT OF THE TATHAGATA
      Please read the whole chapter here: http://lakdiva.org/mahavamsa/chap001.html

      The first visit of the Buddha was to Mahiyangane area where Yakkhas lived. The Mahavamsa Buddha did not try to win them over with his compassion as the original Buddha did in similar circumstances. He TERRORIZED the Yakkhas by MANIPULATING natural phenomena. The Yakkhas appealed to the Buddha NOT TO TERRORIZE them if they were not harmed, they would vacate the land for the Buddha. The Mahavamsa Buddha seems to have taken the innate evil character of the Sinhalese. ‘he struck terror to their hearts by rain, storm, darkness and so forth.’ The yakkhas, overwhelmed by fear, besought the fearless Van quisher to release them from terrors, and the Vanquisher, destroyer of fear, spoke thus to the terrified yakkhas:

      “To this great gathering of that yakkhas went the Blessed One, and there, in the midst of that assembly, hovering in the air over their heads, at the place of the (future) Mahiyangana-thupa, he struck terror to their hearts by rain, storm, darkness and so forth.’ The yakkhas, overwhelmed by fear, besought the fearless Van quisher to release them from terrors, and the Vanquisher, destroyer of fear, spoke thus to the terrified yakkhas: `I will banish this your fear and your distress, O yakkhas, give ye here to me with one accord a place where I may sit down. ‘The yakkhas thus answered the Blessed One: ‘We all, O Lord, GIVE YOU EVEN THE WHOLE OF OUR ISLAND Give us release from our fear.”

      The Mahavamsa portrayal of the Buddha’s second visit also shows that the Buddha had been brought down to a level which the Sinhalese could understand. I think even the Buddha won’t forgive the Ven. Mahanama for this. The second visit of the Buddha was to Nagadipa, now identified with northern part of Lanka. Two Naga princes were about to fight fiercely for a gem set throne and bloodshed was imminent. The Buddha made his visit to prevent bloodshed. There too, the Mahavamsa Buddha seems to have used TERRORIST methods of MANIPULATING natural phenomena to frighten the princes so that they themselves offered the Buddha the throne out of fear. The Mahavamsa Buddha seems to have taken on a character which the original would not have recognized. In the Mahavamsa chapter 1, its author Ven. Mahanama Thero has converted the Buddha into a Terrorist/Barbarian and Buddhism into Barbarism.

    Dear Mr Tariq

    What you said about the Buddhist philosophy is absolutely right. Buddha himself has said that, what he taught about the path to achieve eternal freedom from suffering will be faded away within 5000 years.

    People should not be alarmed by what some wearing yellow robes do, which is completely against what Buddha taught.

    According to Buddha there are only eight followers who can be called ‘sangha’ and just because one wear a yellow robe he does not come within this eight people unless he falls within the eight. And only they are deserved to receive any Offering given by the followers, which will bring them good.

    Who are these eight and what qualities they possess.

    In short they are fully committed to control their senses and they lead utterly contended life with no attachment to anything that would deter their objective of achieving the eternal freedom from the reoccurrence of rebirth.

    How many of such true followers are there today. Almost nothing in the temples, except very few practicing othe true dhamma in isolation with no interruption from others.

    So don’t think or worry about those who ware yellow robes and insult what Buddha taught by causing disunity amongst the communities.

    Yes yes. Saudi Arabia voted in favor of Mahinda Rajapaksa Government but not in favor of Sri Lanka. That is why MR is very gratefully allowing that thug of a Muslim Minister Badurdeen to encroach on government lands to build more and more houses for muslim parasites with aids from Arab people! Speaking as if there is religious tolerance in Arabia! I do not appreciate the activities of this monk at all. But his accusations against that particular Minister – at least – seem to be based on facts.

    Tariq-Al-Maeeena, I don’t know who you are but I guess you are from Saudi. I’m amazed and delighted that an Islamic trying to save Buddhism in Srilanka. Unbelievable. Maybe the next time I PROPOSE YOU FOR THE NOBEL PEACE PRICE. HOW GENEROUS THIS GULF MUSLIMS. BTW TARIQ CAN YOU GRANT PERMISSION TO BUILD A BUDDHIST TEMPLE CLOSE TO JEDDAH PLEASE.BECAUSE SO MANY SINHALESE WORKING THERE AND THEY HAVE NO PLACE TO DO THEIR RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES. PLEASE CONSIDER MY REQUEST. Maybe this is a new trend. What a wonderful world.

    Now the Ven.Galabodaththe Gnanasara become a world number one terrorist. I heard somewhere that Polpot,Bin Ladin and Prabakaran were the most beasest,cruelest terrorists in recent history of this world. You or any other writers who wrote against Ven.Gnanasara in CT, never revealed how many people killed by Ven.Gnanasara? Please elaborate.And I would like to mention Chithagong buddhist monks whom killed by Bangladesh muslims and the monks killed by muslim militants in southern Provinces of Thailand.

    Tariq first of all tell the world what Ven.Gnanasara’s terrorist activity to the world. It is because Ven.Gnanasara scream against the Illegal land grab of Muslims in the East and in Wilpattu Forest reserve that you guys call him a terrorist? Is it because Ven.Gnanasara scream against muslims buying Buddhist monks to justified their misdeeds in this country, you called him a terrorist? First of all you better change the meaning of “terrorism” in the Oxford dictionary like this way. “..The person who scream or yell against muslims atrocities is a terrorist”. I think you and your kings have money to change the meaning of that word. Good Luck.

      Your request for a temple in Jeddah is rejected because of a
      great saying that “beggars do not choose.” I hope you
      understand my friend.Ask Dilan Perera for more information.
      And who says one has to kill to qualify a terrorist?Why do
      you think one has to wait for the kill when all killing
      signs are openly displayed right before the law enforcement
      authorities?So in the paradise,Gnanasara is the sole
      authority to catch Muslims who violate “Gnanasara”laws?
      What’s your point here and why shoot the messenger?

      JimSofty and Avtars,

      “See how muslims oppress women and treat other religions in their territory.”

      Good point. However, are they really Muslims? Are they using Islam to achieve their tribal goals like the Wahhabi and Taliban?

      It is the same problem with Sinhala Monk Mahanama “Buddhism”. Distorted Buddhism, like distorted Islam, for Monk hegemony.

      looking into the History of Islam, it looks like it took about 500 years for these characters to impose their hegemony, and take control. That is why USA, France and Turkey have Separation of Church, Mosque and State. Sri Lanka should do the same.

      Want to know more about Muhhamed? Listen to Karen, You can see the difference between what was preached and what us practiced by the Wahhabi and Taliban,

    As I read Arabs Are [Edited out]. Their culture is [Edited out].

    Islam treat women as slaves. Even the wife or wives are slaves for muslims. That is why they rape women that come to work for them.

    Tariq AL Maeena must talk about his own culture.

    You should talk why muslim kill christians and bomb churches all over the world.

    Why muslims don’t give religious freedom to other religions ?

      JimSofty says

      “Islam treat women as slaves”.

      Knowing that very well, the Sinhalese send tens of thousands of their women as slaves to the Islamic countries.

      The Sinhala women gets raped from Arabs while the Sinhala men drink kassippu and rape their own daughters. Bestiality and incest is already in the Sinhala blood right from the beginning.

      Islam condemns acts of violence against women

      I am writing with regard to the article “US law and an abusive Saudi” (Apr. 14). We have to laud anyone or any authority, be it in the East or in the West, that promotes justice and protects the rights of the victim. There should be strict laws against wife beating. Education is not just about degrees and income, its about being civilized and being in a peaceful and compassionate relationship with fellow human beings. Islam condemns acts of violence against women.

      Intellectual Mind, Online response

      II.

      People who think Western countries give more rights to women than Saudi Arabia are merely victims of the propaganda of Western media and Hollywood. Believe me that Saudi Arabia’s women have far more rights, safety and respect than women in other countries. We should be thankful to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    It is wrong to stop or talk against Islamization of Sri Lanka.

    That is why Tariq AL Maeena Is upset.

    first ask, you own country Saudi Arabia to stop barbaric way of treating humans; women, criminals etc, etc.,

    See, in your country a woman can not even drive a car.

    In the absence of any journalist with a back bone within Sri Lanka who is brave enough to call Gnanasara a terrorist, which he truly is, I welcome Tarik Al Maeenas input.

    Everyone has a right to call a spade a spade. Even Tarik Al Maeena though he may be an arab. Muslim countries are fighting muslim terror groups within their nations. Buddhist countries like Sri Lanka also should fight Buddhist terror groups within before they drag the country to another dark abyss.

    In Saudi Arabia the Islamic fanatics forbid practice of any other religion and anyone found to even possess a cross or a statue is jailed. flogged and beheaded. How is it possible that this man Tariq Almeena who turns a blind eye to such barbarism, trying to advice Lankans???

    In Saudi Arabia a woman cannot even drive a car, and will be stoned to death for being raped by a man, the assumption being that she tempted him. By letting these medieval barbarians admonish others the CT is demeaning itself.

    Mr Tariq A. Al-Maeena, how do you account for the face that despite the attacks on the Musims in Myanmar and Sri lanka, Muslims countries like
    Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Quatar and Bangladesh voted against the US
    resolution which was brought against Sri Lanka at the Human Rights Council in Geneva?
    Shouldn’t these countries support their Muslims friends in Sri Lanka and tell the Rakapakse Govt that the Govt should put a stop to the attacks against the Muslims in Sri lanka or else face the consequences?.

    Tariq A. Al-Maeena,
    Good that you as a Muslim talking about Buddha’s message. You need it to cool your current Islamic wars with neo-con crusaders.

    Afghanistan people were Buddhists before they were conquered by Muslims between 652-870 CE. Yesteryear Afghans couldn’t resist the Marauding Islamists for they were following Buddha’s original teaching as you say ‘compassion and tolerance’. Buddhist Afghans at the time had no will to resist for they were engrossed with karuna, muditha, upeksha and etc.

    Today Afghanistan peoples are 100% Muslim. Following the Koran and Muhammad’s life examples as in Hadith to the letter, Marauding Taliban had declared idols offend Islam. And they have dynamited the Buddha statues, a UNESCO declared world heritage known as Bamiyan Buddha statues that their ancestors build to venerate the Buddha.

    What I wrote above is not the worst case scenario against Buddhists by Muslims. Marauding Muslims and mad missionaries of yesteryear have done worse things to Buddhists in India and many other countries. There is nothing of the sort for One God followers can finger point at Buddhists as being done to them now or their ancestors.

    I cannot say much about Ashin Wirathu Thera, or his 969 Movement, or whatever is happening in Myanmar for I haven’t visited there. But I can tell you that the cause for terror in Sri Lanka is not BBS but ACJU. And this must be exposed to the world.

    So, let me put it in simple words this way. We Sri Lankans have witnessed a Wahhabi phenomenon in Sri Lanka where moderate Sufi Muslims have been overwhelmed by Wahhabis and Salafis and their ideals backed by ACJU. Wahhabi and Salafi thugs have exhumed dead bodies of Sufi saints and burned them in Kattankudy. They have demolished many Sufi mosques and minerates throughout Sri Lanka. They have burned 150 houses belong to followers of Abdullah ‘RAH’. They even killed three Sufi Muslims in Beruwala who were sentenced to hang. BBS has done nothing of the sort. Prove me wrong if you can Mr Al-Maeena.

    Let me put it bluntly: If you people expect to coerce Sinhala Buddhists to be apathetic in the face of threats to their survival you’re mistaken. We have a 2500 year history. Just read it; you’ll see that monks like Theraputtabhaya had given up the robe to join the forces and fight the invaders to save country and they have returned to monkhood afterwards. Like you many an Eelamist tried to make us ‘compassionate and tolerant Buddhists’ during Eelam war 1V as well. But they have failed miserably.

      Muslims are constantly in the process of purification and as a result emerging as the fastest growing faith in the world by conversion and birth, while the teachings of Buddha is constantly being diluted with corruption, thuggery and self immolation. Rather than being in self denial, take a good look at the ground realities and the reason why people are leaving and not practising Buddha’s teaching any more. The strategy to attack other faiths to preserve ones own; will have disastrous effect and eventually annihilate them, just as in the past.

        I don’t know about purification,but I know about corruption in the oil rich Islamic countries. It is rampant to say the least.
        It is true that Islam is a fast growing religion but not through realization but through birth and incentive based conversions,which it self is a corrupt practice.
        Buddha preached to conquer with Dhamma while Qoran teaches to conquer first and convert by force if necessary.
        Buddhism teaches Ahimsa but it does not mean to surrender to invaders. Self preservation is a natural law and it applies to Buddhists as well.
        Finally,even though I am not comfortable with BBS’s mode of operandi,I think some one has do the dirty work.

        It is important to note,though no one speaks about this,they “only oppose certain actions” of certain people who take cover under religious freedom and not target any religion.

        in oil rich Islamic nations.
        It is true that Islam is a fast growing religion,but not by realization,as you said by birth and conversions by incentives,which it self is an immoral and a corrupt practice.
        Buddha preached to conquer with Dhamma while Qoran teaches to conquer first and convert,by force if necessary.
        It is a fact that a religious invasion is presently on in Sri Lanka.
        Even though Buddhism propagates ahimsa,it does not prohibit self preservation which is a universal right.

        It is interesting to note that so many so eager even to jump the line to demonize the BBS.
        But they fail to notice that BBS is only protesting against certain actions of certain people who take cover in religious freedom to engage in clandestine activity and not against any religion.
        I am not a fan of BBS or particularly like the way they operate but someone has to do the dirty work,these people will not listen and change their ways if they were told ‘suwapath wewa’ or else we may end in a situation like in Myanmar.

    Anti-Muslim are whipped in Sri Lanka by opponents of Sri Lankan govt to discredit Sri Lanka. The truth is no Muslims were killed in Sri Lanka where as just this week several innocent Jews were killed by a lone white spremist American. Dozens of Mosques have been attacked in France, UK, US, Sweden, Denmark and Holland and attacks happen routinely. Yet, the focus is in Sri Lanka, where the incidents are in comparisson and critics are from the very same countries. Hypocritics! Saudi Arabia is a good friend of Sri Lanka. I look forward to hear from Mr Tariq if he regards Muslims are treated better in the West by Western goverments.

    TariQ Al MAeena is talking about buddhist Terrorists when these two monks have not done any terrorist activities.

    It is the muslims who destroyed Two Bamiyan buddha Statues in Afghanistan. That was their heritage which said that Afghanistan was a buddhist country.

    It is the Maldive island Muslims who dis figured that Buddha Statues that were kept in their museum. It is the Bangladeshi Muslims who burned down Ten buddhist temples.

    It is Saudi Arabia that does not allow a bible into their country.

    TariQ al Maeena is talking bull $hit here when Muslims are the terrorists all over the world.

        The western Jewish/christian establishment treats the Muslims worse than terrorists. They take the side of the Muslims only when it comes in conflict with Buddhist because they failed to conquer the Buddhists when it was their turn and now they try to use the Muslims as cat paw destroy the Buddhists.
        That’s why the Time magazine calls it Buddhist terror.

      Bamiyan Buddha statues were erected during the time of Mauryans as a landmark sculpture of peace among the Greeks and Hindians solely to give an idea of peace in the gates of India, not necessarily to say that all Afghans embraced Buddhism during those period, but most of the supporters of Buddhism during the time of Buddha were Greeks elites not Pathans or Brahmins.

    In response to the comment of “lal”

    Do you want the Buddhists to learn from the Tamils, how to kill, cheat and rape? Was it the Tamils who killed, looted properties and RAPED in 1958 and during the subsequent riots? It was your forefathers and ascendents who committed the atrocities successfully with state sponsorship and have your relatives forgotten how to do it again? Even the wildest Sinhalese doesn’t accuse Tamils of raping. I concede the facts that LTTE were involved in violence, but indicate me a single crime of RAPE committed by LTTE, no,you can’t. Despite all the efforts made by your lawless rulers to establish credibility, we see them falling apart helplessly and heading towards a point of no return. Unity and reconciliation should be built up on mutual understanding and harmonious co-habitation of all the religions and ethnicities in the country. Irrational allegations and random accusations will take us nowhere

      The acts runs wild for they are ingrained within the Sinhala veins, for Tamils are only a little way below their ranks for unmitigated frustration and abuse they inflict on their own kinds.
