Buddhagaya Blasts A Terror Attack – Home Secretary Anil Goswami

Serial explosions inside and outside Mahabodhi temple in Bihar were a terror attack, the Home Ministry said today as it sent NIA and NSG teams for post-blasts investigations.

“It was a terror attack,” Union Home Secretary Anil Goswami told PTI.

He, however, said so far no group has claimed responsibility for the multiple blasts and investigations were on.

Mr.Goswami said four blasts took place inside the temple complex while four occurred outside it.

The Home Secretary said teams from National Investigation Agency and National Security Guard comprising explosive experts were sent to Bihar to help the police in collection of evidence and assist in post-blasts investigation.

Two people were injured in the serial blasts early this morning in the temple town of Bodh Gaya.

    When some relatives visited the Bodhgaya vihara last year on their return they told that the Sinhala Buddhist head Monk there was spreading Anti-Muslim and racist propaganda against the Sri Lankan Muslims. Talking against Muslim food consumption and business success because of jealousy.
    The Sri Lanka state- sponsored racist rajapakse regime is EXPORTING HATRED AS BUDDHISM into the South Asia region. The BBS monk and was preaching hate against Sri Lankan minorities.. The Indian and Nepal authorities should take measure to ensure that their country and BUDDHISM and peaceful and non-violent religion is not used to spread hatred in other countries in the region..
    South Asia including Myanmar needs a regional committment to the prevention of ethnic and religious hatred. Unfortunately with Narendar Modi as BJP leader the opposite is bound to happen..

      Menike, you are right. Hatred begets hatred.. I too had heard of the monks sent from Lanka being bigots.

      Time for the Maha Sangha to put an end to the Rajapakse brothers use of religion and the BBS and other JHU and other groups to DIVIDE, DISTRACT and RULE Lanka’s multicultural society.

      This is a bad example for Asia.

        “Time for the Maha Sangha to put an end to the Rajapakse brothers use of religion and the BBS and other JHU and other groups to DIVIDE, DISTRACT and RULE Lanka’s multicultural society.”

        Had Maha Sangha adhered to Buddha’s teaching even the Europeans who invaded this island would not have dared to step on the beaches of this island.

        Their machination to create and preserve Sinhala/Buddhism in this island, the only purpose in their vocation, let the foreigners in to occupy and control every aspect of this island’s people.

        The saffron clad Sangha would not give a toss about the quality of governance as long as they are given prominence and respect.

        The Sangha which means “The community of those who have attained enlightenment” have been behaving like medieval Rasputins.

        “DIVIDE, DISTRACT and RULE” Precisely this is what the Sri Lankan Sangha is all about.

        Miracles from these Sangha is the last thing one should expect.

          “The saffron clad Sangha would not give a toss about the quality of governance as long as they are given prominence and respect.”

          If you read the Monk Mahanama Monk Mahawansa, it becomes clear, that it is the Monk hegemony they are after.

          So Monk-King or Monk-Ruler hegemony. The responsibility of the King is to protect the Monk hegemony. The king controls the people.

          What happens if the ruler does not follow the monks wishers?

          Will be shot and killed. That is what happened to SWRD, Prime Minister, courtsey of Racist Sinhala Buddhist Monk Somarama in 1959. Muslims was not he issue. It was the racism against the Tamils.

          Now with BBS, we have hordes of Racist Sinhala Buddhist Monks. They want to protect their good life.

          1. Get the king and prostrate in front of the monk.

          2. Get the people to prostrate in front of the monk.

          3. Get people to to provide food and shelter, for chanting unintelligible Pali verses all day long, and take pots of water around a building housing statues, and sell Buddhist Indulgences.

          4. This is better than Ponzi Schemes.

          5. In addition to the monks, the Priest and Mullahs are in the same business, as exposed by Martin Luther.

        How many religious conflicts we in Sri Lanka had let alone being killed during the past seven days? None. Yet anti Sinhala Buddhists are pointing fingers at Rajapakses, BBS, JHU and etc as racists and bigots. What nonsense is this? Those that accuse Sinhala Buddhists must read a bit of the list of Islamic Terror attacks in the Muslim world for the past 7 Days.

        2013.07.06, in Potsikum, Nigeria, 42 killed 6 injured in an Islamists massacre over forty students and teachers at a school, in some cases burning children alive.
        2013.07.06, in al-Arish, Egypt, 1 killed in when Islamic gunmen murder a Coptic priest..
        2013.07.06, in Lahore, Pakistan, Muslim bombers blown four people, including a child to bits outside a restaurant 4 killed and 40 injured.
        2013.07.05, in Baghdad Iraq. A Sunni suicide bomber manages to take out over fifteen Shia worshippers from their mosque 15 killed and 32 injured.
        2013.07.05, in Uruzgan, Afghanistan. A dozen souls in a dining hall are taken out by a Shahid suicide bomber 12 killed 5 injured.
        2013.07.05, Iraq, Samarrah, A Shahid suicide bomber detonates near a rival mosque, incinerating four worshippers. 7 killed and 10 injured.
        2013.07.04, Iraq, Baghdad, Terrorists bombed a teahouse, murdering at least three patrons and 14 injured
        2013.07.04, in Sarawza, Afghanistan. 2 killed , Two boys, ages 10 and 12, are torn to shreds by Islamic bombers.
        2013.07.04, in Pashtun Kot, Afghanistan. Four women are among five civilians pulled into pieces by a Sunni bomb.
        2013.07.04, in Helmand, Afghanistan, four young girls, ages 7 to 12, are disassembled by a Taliban bomb.
        2013.07.02, Iraq, Baghdad. A dozen patrons killed at an open-air market are 4 blown to bits by Mujahideen bombers.
        2013.07.02, Kabul, Afghanistan. 7 killed 5 Suicide truck bombers take out seven people.
        2013.07.01, Iraq, Muqdadiyah, 23 killed 27 injured when a Sunni suicide bomber self-detonates inside a Shiite mosque, sending two dozen worshippers straight to Allah.
        2013.07.01, Iraq, Mishahada, Eight men are pulled out of their homes and executed by al-Qaeda.
        2013.07.01, Egypt, Muqattam, Eight anti-Brotherhood protesters are shot to death by Hamas members.
        2013.07.01, Iraq, Baqubah, Ten Iraqis killed and 22 injured when sitting in a cafe are blown to bits by a Shahid suicide bomber.

        Mind you, almost all of it are Muslims killing Muslims. Did not Nazarella of Shitti Hisbulla declare open war against Sunis of late. If Allah is a true Creator why does he let his children kill each other? On whose (Shitti, Suni, Ahamadia and etc) side is he on?

        Instead of blaming Sinhala Buddhists, Muslims ought to look inward and logically analyse the Koran writing. Muslims must read the nasty verses of the Koran and try to understand who hated who without resorting to diabolical excuses such as the so called context. I have no doubt that all these killing stem from the Koran verses.

          Osama clear told to the world few days after 9/11, “I stress that I have not carried out this act, which appears to have been carried out by individuals with their own motivation. In an interview with Osama bin Laden, published in the Pakistani newspaper Ummat Karachi on September 28, 2001, he stated: “I have already said that I am not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children and other humans as an appreciable act.”

          look at the real stat of world terrorism… Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Soil by Group, From 1980 to 2005, According to FBI Database
          According to this data, there were more Jewish acts of terrorism within the United States than Islamic (7% vs 6%). These radical Jews committed acts of terrorism in the name of their religion. These were not terrorists who happened to be Jews; rather, they were extremist Jews who committed acts of terrorism based on their religious passions, just like Al-Qaeda and company.

            To your point about more terrorist acts in the US by Jewish groups you are right, although the media in the US (controlled and run by mostly Jewish people) make Americans believe that it is ALL Muslims.
            Any incident regarding a Muslim extremist is hyped up, and the atrocities against the Palestinians or some extremist activities by Jews are played down. The gun related murders in the US far exceed attacks by Muslim terrorists:

            Number of gun related murders (for 2013) in the US after Newtown CT school massacre: 4287

            Number of deaths due to (Muslim) terrorist attacks on US soil for 2013: 7 (Including Boston bombing)

            Whoever controls the media controls the message.

          1. You need to ask this core question repeatedly from the Muslims. You also need to ask from Buddhists why they are not following Buddhas Teachings, and calling themselves Buddhists. Why?

          2. Is it Wahabism? Monk-Mullah Hegenism

          3. Nationalism?

          4. Tribalism?

          5. Racism?

          Any other Isms?

        Part of the blame should go to V Prabakaran too. Because he and his rebels got themselves killed, could not managed to survive.
        My point is if Prabakaran manage to survive,
        *) Those big Sinhalese Lions would have been still hiding in their dens. From 1983, that is after VP took arms, those lions went to sleep and did not harm any Tamil, Christian or Muslim citizens for nearly 30 years.
        *) After VP and his rebel clan got killed, these wild Sinhalese lions came out of their cages again and started killing innocent civilians and hurt other religions.. like before 1983..

        So Prabakaran should be blamed too……

        *) We need another big strong Tiger (or perhaps Camel) to put these Sinhalese lions back into their cages.

      Tamils and Muslims and the Silent Majority of Moderate Sinhala people should unite to defeat the hatred being spread in the name of Buddhism which is giving out peaceful religion a bad name in the world.

      We all know that the Rajapakse regime, particularly Gotabaya the Godfather of Racism, is behind the perversion and politicization of Sinhala Buddhism today.
      The Sinhala people must save Buddhism from the Rajapakse regime. The racist campaign against the minorities, devolution of power, and the 13th Amendment so that the Rajapakse family can centralize and control Lanka, that was done at Gotabaya Rajapakses’ instigation has spiraled out of control in South Asia and beyond…

        Menike’s point is a larger one Gona – that hatred begets hatred and it was the Sinhyala modaya Buddhists who started the violence by attacking Muslim businesses in Lanka..

        For all we know the attack was because of what is happening in Myanmar to the Rohingya.. or it was an LTTE and Muslim brotherhood combined attack..
        The point is that TRUE Buddhism is being attacked and disgraced FIRST by Rajapassa led Balu Sena, JHU and Sinhalaya modayas and the Burmese Junta in Myanmar – and this has cause a backlash.. which is fashionably called “terror” attack!

        http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow1/20953906.cms

        But times of Muslims will say CIA, Mossad and MI5 are behind the attack.

          In india, if any blast happen even a vehicle tuble blast, the police suspects Muslims, thats the nature of the india. then they arrest all the muslims youths who live arround that are and tortured em. 4 or 5 later at the end of the investigation the police will find that the blast want carried out by muslims it was carried out by a hindu extream gruop called shiv sena. this is often happening india. there are numarous cases hapend like that..

          Hyderabad, April 05:
          Under the pretext of eradicating terrorism, Muslims are being harassed. Indian police makes an attempt to fabricate false evidence. In order to cover up its failure to arrest the real culprits. In almost all the cases, police fails to collect evidence. Mr. Justice Markandey Katju expressed these thoughts in a special meeting with Mr. Zahid Ali Khan, Editor of The Siasat Urdu Daily yesterday. Questioning the Indian system, he said that the Muslims are being projected as the symbol of evils (satan)

      Meinike,

      In situations like these, the fist question to ask is who gains? Whose-Self interest is being served.

      These are many suspects, in order to probability, but cannot tell which until more evidence is uncovered. We have to assume that the Indians are more honest than the Sri Lankans.

      1. BJP or other Hindu Radical Organizations. Hindus perceive Buddhism as a threat. The Dalits are converting to Buddhism because of caste discrimination,

      2. Christian Aided West and NGO’s, so that the Buddhist violence will be directed against Hindus and Muslims instead of Christians.

      3. Israel funded criminals, so that there is conflict between Muslims and Buddhists, and keep occupying Palestinian lands.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavon_Affair

      4. Burmese Muslims who were killed and chased out, due to Buddhist violence and Terrorism in Burma.

      5. Tamil Nadu Tamils, who were disgusted with Buddhist Monks and Buddhism, and recently they attacked Buddhist Monks in Tamil Nadu as well. Now Sri Lanka pilgrims go to Bodhi Gaya by avoiding Chennai and Tamil Nadu. Pretty soon, they will have to avoid going to India altogether, and be content with prostrating in front of local statues and trees- not bad will save funds. After all, locality does not count much with Myths.

      Looks like the Theravada Buddhists are recruiting a host of enemies to address them. The Hindus attacked Buddhists from about 2 Century BC to 6th Century AD in India, and declined rapidly. The Hindus are not going to let a violent religion like Buddhism to rise up again. The Buddhist terrorism in Mayanamar and Sri Lanka, the terror directed against the Tamil Hindus must have sent bad signals with the Indian Hindus.

      This Bomb blast did not happened due to the racism of Myanmar or due to the Rajapaksa Regime’s conduct.

      This attempt of bombing in Bodhgaya was first revealed by one Indian mujaheddin captures in 2011 and then in Pune Bakery Bombing suspect. At that time Myanmar did not have any violence against rohinga Muslims nor there were any problems of Muslims in Sri Lanka. In fact one of the captures terrorist stated that he was trained in a Madrasa in Colombo.

      I am not telling Rajapaksa is right always and it is very unfortunate to see that people trying to put the blame on Buddhist countries and Rather trying to “enjoy” the Bombing at Bodhgaya

        Manju,

        Could be a false Flag operation then.
        The Question is who gains?
        Whose self-interest is served?

        That will point towards the culprits.

        http://mahavamsa.org/mahavamsa/original-version/06-coming-vijaya/

        False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organizations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organisation behind an operation.

        The name “false flag” has its origins in naval warfare where the use of a flag other than the belligerent’s true battle flag as a ruse de guerre, before engaging an enemy, has long been acceptable. Such operations are also acceptable in certain circumstances in land warfare, to deceive enemies in similar ways providing that the deception is not perfidious and all such deceptions are discarded before opening fire upon the enemy.

    To attack a place of worship by anyone is disgusting and disrespectful. This could be the work of terrorists or this could be a “False Flag” operation to cause damage and cast blame on innocent people.

    An example of a False Flag incident:

    Lavon Affair refers to a failed Israeli covert operation, code named Operation Susannah, conducted in Egypt in the Summer of 1954. As part of the false flag operation,[1] a group of Egyptian Jews were recruited by Israeli military intelligence for plans to plant bombs inside Egyptian, American and British-owned civilian targets, cinema, library and American educational center. The attacks were to be blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood, Egyptian Communists, “unspecified malcontents” or “local nationalists” with the aim of creating a climate of sufficient violence and instability to induce the British government to retain its occupying troops in Egypt’s Suez Canal zone.[2] The operation caused no casualties, except for those members of the cell who committed suicide after being captured.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavon_Affair

    If anyone does some research you can learn more about False Flag operations.

    Until some group or persons claim they did it, and the criminals are found, this could be the work of anyone.

    Gotabaya Rajapassa’s coup d’etat and inaugration as Lanka’s first MILITARY DICTATOR will in the name of “protecting Buddhism” from the minorities. Never mind that Sinhala Buddhism has been has distorted, perverted, MILITARIZED and destroyed by Gotabaya.
    The Rajapake brothers are creating a DEEP STATE whereby the ruling family and a group of influential anti-democratic coalitions within the political system, composed of high-level elements within the intelligence services, military, security, judiciary, and administration are laying the IDEOLOGICAL AND INFRASTRUCTURE groundwork for COUP D’ETAT to enable Rajapassa to rule forever as the new Buddhist Emperor of Lanka.
    The deep state that Gotabaya is creating, is similar to that of a “state within the state” and evident in many military dictatorships in the Mid East and Pakistan’s ISI which Gota works with. The political agenda of the deep state involves an allegiance to nationalism, corporatism, and state interests. Violence and other means of pressure have historically been employed in a largely covert manner to manipulate political and economic elites and ensure specific interests are met within the seemingly democratic framework of the political landscape.
    The outlook and behavior of the Rajapakse family and associated predominantly military and political elites who constitute the deep state, and work to uphold national interests, are shaped by an entrenched belief that the country is always “on the brink” of being DIVIDED. This is the bogey that Rajapassa promotes in the form of Balu Sena etc. Sri Lanka liberals will need to be vigilant given the levels of militarization as the ECONOMIC CRISIS bites and people mobilize against the Rajapakse regime on the streets. Big question is will China play the role of supporter of the Gotabaya dictatorship as the US does with the Egyptian military?

      FIRST LETS CONDEMN THE PLANNERS, INSTIGATORS OF THIS IMMORAL ACT.

      Bomb in monks bag
      CCTV not working
      No damage to the Bodhi
      Cosmetic damage to the premises.
      No fatalities
      Small casualties
      Presumed to know there was a danger.
      No action taken to minimize risk
      Not one but planted 8 explosives
      At 5.20am

      Looks like a hopeless job done …

      Seems like the planners only wanted to create a situation, give a message with least damage. Should be thankful to them to that extent.

      Prospective culprits,

      Mujahideen – to avenge Burma
      Tamil terrorists – to avenge Colombo Sinhalese
      Hindu extremist – to eliminate Buddhism or create terror among Muslims and Buddhists
      Local politics – to take some advantage by having racial / religious tension.
      Buddhist Extremists. – to justify actions against particularly the Muslims.

      May be we can expect something similar to take place in a mosque in a few nights time..

      THERE IS MORE TO THIS AND SOMEONE IS ASSUMING THEY ARE GAINING AND GOOD PLANNERS.

        Well said.

        “Couldn’t the temple find a Buddhists monk who is well versed in Buddha’s teaching instead of a saffron clad Sinhala/Buddhist as its priest.” -Native Vedda

        Vedda, that is where you are making the ERROR. There are not that many. The one I am aware of is Ven. Sobitha Thero, the Honda Hamuduruwo.

        So the average pick out of a hat will be Sinhala Buddhist Racist Theravada Monk clad in yellow robes.

        The majority are Sinhala Buddhist Racists. So, if you pick one, out of a hat, he is more likely to be the same. Why do you think the majority of the Buddhist monks including the Maanayakas are remaining silent? Monk Mahanama Sinhala Buddhist Racism, the CORE PROBLEM in sri Lanka, preventing an Egalitarian society. Too bad, LSSP and CP could not deliver die to the racists and racist monks.

        1. Do you think the Mahanayakas know Buddhism and practice Buddhism? They are practicing bastardized Buddhism, called Mara ism

        2. Do you think the Pedophile Monk at London, handshaking with President Rajapaksa, know Buddhism and practice Buddhism?

        3. Do you think BBS, JHU and other monks know Buddhism? They do know racism. Look at the 13A objections. It is about Sinhala Buddhist Racism against Tamils.

          Amarasiri

          I have known one or two Buddhist monks in this island.

          For me rest of the so called monks are Sinhala/Buddhists clad in saffron robes.

          Mahabodhi temple in Bihar could find someone who is versed in Buddha’s teaching. I understand there are few still left in the world who by their thought, words and actions qualify themselves as Buddha’s disciples.

          Only thing is you have to look for them, not necessarily from this island.

      Shariah encompasses everything a Muslim does – the prayers, fasting, marriage, how to bring up children, Hajj, charity, etc. Stupid people talk Shariah as if to defame Islam without knowing what it means. It is so deep, we need Scholars to explain. Every a average Muslims does not the details of it.

          According to Islam and sharia, is a great sin to kill an innocent person, and anyone who does so will suffer great torment in the hereafter:

          …So We decreed for the tribe of Israel that if someone kills another person – unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth – it is as if he had murdered all mankind. And if anyone gives life to another person, it is as if he had given life to all mankind. Our Messengers came to them with Clear Signs but even after that many of them committed outrages in the earth. (Qur’an 5: 32)

          Any Muslim who believes in God with a sincere heart, who scrupulously abides by His words and fears suffering in the hereafter will avoid harming even one other person. That is because he knows that God is the Lord of Infinite Justice, and will suitably reward him for all his deeds. In one of the prophetic traditions, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) listed the kinds of people who are not pleasing to God.

          ‘Those who act cruelly and unjustly in the sacred lands, those who yearn for the ways of the ignorant and those who wrongly shed human blood.’ (Reported in Bukhari)

            All religions/philosophies/PRACTICES have a strain of evil, a supremacist talk, perks & benefits…

            Christians, Muslims, Buddists, even Hindoos and some others are the biggest criminals in human history.

      Where is your common sense? At this stage NO ONE knows who did it, so why are you picking on Muslims?
      Have you come to that conclusion because Muslims have been targeted in Myanmar and Sri Lanka, and in your mind, it MUST be them?
      Until officials over there KNOW who is behind this horrible incident, people with sense should stop pointing fingers at others.

          Instead of making a fool of yourself by calling other names, try learning to read article yourself.
          In your little mind you have already decided who is responsible for this, BEFORE the officials there have investigated:

          “4:00 pm: Bihar DGP says the Bodhgaya Temple Management Committee (BTMC) has requested the state police to increase security in the complex. DGP Abhayanand says no one has claimed responsibility for the attack and that the CCTV footage of the temple will be thoroughly examined. He also says that the two injured in the bomb blasts are out of danger.”

          That is the latest. Try not to be too smart, you end up looking the fool. Thank you.

        Common sense and Sri Lankans don’t mix. Both are mutually exclusive.

        Who cares who did it.

        Now it is the Muslim bashing season. As you are the second largest minority in this island, it is your responsibility to exercise tolerance. Sit back and take it since you are a minority.

        Peace be upon the Muslims.

        IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT HINDU EXTREMISTS DID IT AS THE GREATEST THREST TO HINDUISM COMES FROM THE MILLIONS OF ‘LOW CASTE’ DALITS CONVERTING TO BUDDISM.

        It is also possible some Buddist extremists (Burma, SL, Gota, Mahendra, BBS, etc.) did it to distract the minority abuse happening in them countries, to gather some support from Buddist countries and international blind eye.

    Terror is not the decease,rather the symptom
    ==================================================

    Terror is not the decease,rather the symptom- Injustice , Discrimination & Government sponsored terror and ethnic cleaning ,invading others lands in greed to rob their resources and depriving their freedom and dignity are the decease( root cause) , until these are eliminated sincerely and live and let live prevails , do not expect, peace anywhere in this world, it was the people power that topple many dynasties now in our times ,so it is up to the people as a whole to come together putting religion, race nationalism , revenge aside and take control of the world and put the “Elite” crooks in their place and make them come out of their hallucination and realize they are not the master but appointed servants of the peoples of the entire world and please one simple advice if we can not achieve this do not bring anymore children into this wicked world who will be subjected to worst sorrow and Tyranny by wicked politicians and business cartels.

    Most People are good at criticizing verbally and online but none want to make an effort for a change.

    Discrimination faced by the Bihari community
    ==============================================

    Mauritius
    A large number of people from Bihar travelled to various parts of the world in the 19th century to serve as indentured labour on sugarcane and rubber plantations in Mauritius and Natal-South Africa.
    A majority of Indo-Mauritians are Bihari Mauritians.[3] Most of the Mauritian Prime Ministers were Indo-Mauritians of Bihari descent.
    Bihari sub-nationalism

    Bihari sub-nationalism is a sentiment which unites people speaking Bihari languages.
    According to social scientist Dr. Shaibal Gupta, the beating of students from Bihar in Mumbai in October 2008, has consolidated Bihari sub-nationalism.
    Bihar Movement

    Bihar Movement was a movement initiated by students in the Indian state of Bihar in 1974 and led by the veteran Gandhian Socialist Jayaprakash Narayan against misrule of and corruption in the government. By 1975 it had attracted a mass following amongst all sections of the population in Bihar and in some other states. It is also called “total revolution”. It led to giving up of surnames by many Biharis in 1970s.
    Discrimination faced by the Bihari community

    Main article: Persecution of Biharis in Bangladesh
    Main article: Anti-Bihari sentiment
    Although racial differentiation in India is almost non-existent, they practice some form discrimination based on caste among themselves. During recent times, the people from Bihar have been the major victims of it, often resulting in violence directed against them, and even their social outcasting at times.

    The uneven economic development in India has resulted in mass migration of Bihari workers, and middle class professionals, to seek work in more developed states of India like Maharashtra, the North East region, Delhi, western Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab. The free movement of Indians to settle and work anywhere inside the Indian Union has been guaranteed by the constitution of India.[51] Bihari settler communities living in other states have been subjected to a growing degree of xenophobia, racial discrimination, prejudice and violence. Biharis are often looked down upon in Delhi and their accent is ridiculed. In 2000 and 2003, anti-Bihari violence led to the deaths of up to 200 people and created 10,000 internal refugees. Again in 2008, anti-Bihari violence in Maharashtra, notably in Nashik, Mumbai, and Pune, created a record 40,000 to 60,000 internal refugees

      Please note a Bihari descendant and his clan is running the most powerful state in Indian ocean. Contact Gota the Defense Secretary of Sri Lanka for his leadership training.

      He will teach the Hindians, Bengalis, Mauritians …. and other states a lesson they will never forget, all at the same time.

      He can be the leader of Bihari Liberation Front.

          Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)

          first question is who told u this is a command from Allah via Quran to HUMAN to kill un believers? have really read the full chapter of this verse?

          when u read the chapter u can realize Allah says ANGEl to help 300 muslims who were sarrounded by 1000 ARAB KURAISH at the place called BADR. its like God helped RAAMAN to destroy RAAVANA, its like GOD helped MOSES to KIL FIROWN, its like GOD helped ABREHEM to KILL their enemies, its like god helped NOAH to destroy their enemy….

          without reading quran u cant understand the real meaning…..

      Ladan,

      You say :”■Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)”

      Do you believe the Holy Bible literally?

      I checked your reference with a translation by Muhammad Asad. I was told he was a former Jew, so a generally credible translation, as he would be more knowledgeable about the Abrahamic religions.
      ISBN No. 1-904510-00-0

      What I saw was a Defensive Verse, and NOT Offensive Verse. The offense, is is really self defense, if they attack you first. United Nations Charter allows for that. It talks about going to their original lands.

      Chapter 2: Verse 190.
      AND FIGHT in God’s cause against those who wage war against you, but do not commit aggression – for verily, God does not love aggressors.

      Chapter 2: Verse 191.

      And slay them where ever you may come upon them, and drive them away from where ever they drove you away – for oppression is even worse than killing. And fight not against them near the Inviolable House of Worship unless they fightagainst you there fitst. but if they fight against you, slay them: such shall be the recompense of those who deny the truth.

      Ladan, I have not checked all the other verses you have given. You have lost credibility in my eyes. You have an agenda, and I am appalled that, you distort facts that can be easily checked. So, you have an agenda, or is shill planted to discredit the Muslims.

      I will say the Sun does NOT go around the Earth, but it is the Earth that goes around Sun. I will cite the data from Copernicus and Galileo’s experiment with the phases of Venus.

      Here is what Joshua said 3,000 years ago. He stopped the sun for a day, as given in the Bible.

      http://biblehub.com/joshua/10-13.htm

      New International Version (©2011)
      So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.
      New Living Translation (©2007)
      So the sun stood still and the moon stayed in place until the nation of Israel had defeated its enemies. Is this event not recorded in [The Book of Jashar]? The sun stayed in the middle of the sky, and it did not set as on a normal day.

      English Standard Version (©2001)
      And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day.

      New American Standard Bible (©1995)
      So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, Until the nation avenged themselves of their enemies. Is it not written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.

      King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
      And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

      Kill People Who Don’t Listen to Priests

      1) If one curses his father or mother, his lamp will go out at the coming of darkness. (Proverbs 20:20 NAB)
      2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

      Death for Adultery
      If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death. (Leviticus 20:10 NLT)

      Death for Fornication
      A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)

      Death to Followers of Other Religions
      Whoever sacrifices to any god, except the Lord alone, shall be doomed. (Exodus 22:19 NAB)

      Kill Nonbelievers
      They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13 NAB)

      Kill False Prophets
      If a man still prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall say to him, “You shall not live, because you have spoken a lie in the name of the Lord.” When he prophesies, his parents, father and mother, shall thrust him through. (Zechariah 13:3 NAB)

      Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God
      Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

      Kill Women Who Are Not Virgins On Their Wedding Night
      But if this charge is true (that she wasn’t a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father’s house. Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst. (Deuteronomy 22:20-21 NAB)

      Kill Followers of Other Religions.
      1) If your own full brother, or your son or daughter, or your beloved wife, or you intimate friend, entices you secretly to serve other gods, whom you and your fathers have not known, gods of any other nations, near at hand or far away, from one end of the earth to the other: do not yield to him or listen to him, nor look with pity upon him, to spare or shield him, but kill him. Your hand shall be the first raised to slay him; the rest of the people shall join in with you. You shall stone him to death, because he sought to lead you astray from the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that place of slavery. And all Israel, hearing of this, shall fear and never do such evil as this in your midst. (Deuteronomy 13:7-12 NAB)

      2) Suppose a man or woman among you, in one of your towns that the LORD your God is giving you, has done evil in the sight of the LORD your God and has violated the covenant by serving other gods or by worshiping the sun, the moon, or any of the forces of heaven, which I have strictly forbidden. When you hear about it, investigate the matter thoroughly. If it is true that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, then that man or woman must be taken to the gates of the town and stoned to death. (Deuteronomy 17:2-5 NLT)

      Death for Blasphemy
      One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD’s name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother’s name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD’s will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, “Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD’s name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD’s name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

      Kill False Prophets
      1) Suppose there are prophets among you, or those who have dreams about the future, and they promise you signs or miracles, and the predicted signs or miracles take place. If the prophets then say, ‘Come, let us worship the gods of foreign nations,’ do not listen to them. The LORD your God is testing you to see if you love him with all your heart and soul. Serve only the LORD your God and fear him alone. Obey his commands, listen to his voice, and cling to him. The false prophets or dreamers who try to lead you astray must be put to death, for they encourage rebellion against the LORD your God, who brought you out of slavery in the land of Egypt. Since they try to keep you from following the LORD your God, you must execute them to remove the evil from among you. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5 NLT)

      2) But any prophet who claims to give a message from another god or who falsely claims to speak for me must die.’ You may wonder, ‘How will we know whether the prophecy is from the LORD or not?’ If the prophet predicts something in the LORD’s name and it does not happen, the LORD did not give the message. That prophet has spoken on his own and need not be feared. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22 NLT)

      Infidels and Gays Should Die
      So God let them go ahead and do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they worshiped the things God made but not the Creator himself, who is to be praised forever. Amen. That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. And the men, instead of having normal sexual relationships with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men and, as a result, suffered within themselves the penalty they so richly deserved. When they refused to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their evil minds and let them do things that should never be done. Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness, sin, greed, hate, envy, murder, fighting, deception, malicious behavior, and gossip. They are backstabbers, haters of God, insolent, proud, and boastful. They are forever inventing new ways of sinning and are disobedient to their parents. They refuse to understand, break their promises, and are heartless and unforgiving. They are fully aware of God’s death penalty for those who do these things, yet they go right ahead and do them anyway. And, worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too. (Romans 1:24-32 NLT)

      Kill Anyone who Approaches the Tabernacle
      For the LORD had said to Moses, ‘Exempt the tribe of Levi from the census; do not include them when you count the rest of the Israelites. You must put the Levites in charge of the Tabernacle of the Covenant, along with its furnishings and equipment. They must carry the Tabernacle and its equipment as you travel, and they must care for it and camp around it. Whenever the Tabernacle is moved, the Levites will take it down and set it up again. Anyone else who goes too near the Tabernacle will be executed.’ (Numbers 1:48-51 NLT)

      Kill People for Working on the Sabbath
      The LORD then gave these further instructions to Moses: ‘Tell the people of Israel to keep my Sabbath day, for the Sabbath is a sign of the covenant between me and you forever. It helps you to remember that I am the LORD, who makes you holy. Yes, keep the Sabbath day, for it is holy. Anyone who desecrates it must die; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community. Work six days only, but the seventh day must be a day of total rest. I repeat: Because the LORD considers it a holy day, anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death.’ (Exodus 31:12-15 NLT)

        Zaith,

        Thank you for the research and the Bible citations.

        So, Joshua Stopping the Sun for a day, is just the tip of the iceberg.

        Very interesting Mythology narrative.

    The attack is inline with Shariya

    The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam. For the non-Muslims, the alternative to this is to pay the humiliating protection money (Jizya tax) or be killed (by beheading, of course). A militarily dominant Islam, without doubt, precludes the peaceful co-existence with the unbelievers if the Muslims have to abide strictly by the unalterable stipulations of the Qur’an

      The attack could also be in line with a “False Flag” operation, a certain nation in the Middle East (non Muslim) is famous for such operations. In fact they are masters at it, know how to teach it, and have the manpower to pull it off.

        Im sure Myanmar case is also a “FAlse Flag” operation.
        and all what happens in SL againt muslims are “False Flag” operations.

        Im sure what ever happens in Sri LAnkna in future against muslims are False Flag attacks and those are done by muslims them selves.

        hope this would answer “Peaceful muslims”

          Unfortunately you learned a new phrase today, and not using it appropriately. I hope the Muslims in Sri Lanka, who have NOT bombed temples, attacked temples, businesses, people, or an entire race, will be left alone. THey have not retaliated nor have they incited others. They have been true to their country, unlike the Buddhist monks who have brought shame and harms their own country.

    who did it?
    it could be congress trying to whip up support before elections
    it could be hindu terrorists
    it could be in relation for narendra Mod becming oppsition leader
    it could be a madman
    it could be internal budhist to budjhist violence
    One this for sure is that it cannot be Islamic intolerance.
    Aiyoo aiooo

    It is unfortunate that Asia has suddenly become a fire zone, and that religious clashes, and terrorist attacks, are causing more and more friction. One has to stop and wonder why these countries are aflame, and what the motivation is behind the sudden surge of attacks against religious places and this tit for tat mentality of Asian people. We Asians are easily swayed, provoked, and easy prey. All it takes is the sight of money, and you will find elements willing to sell their soul to the devil, at the expense of their own people. Unseen hands seems to manipulate those who are causing turmoil in their own countries. The incitement and provocation shows a dangerous element of cunning and planning, most probably backed by financial support.
    No religion condones violence against any people. Therefore this must be the work of some devil.

    Qur’an:9:88 – “The Messenger and those who believe with him, strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives in Allah’s Cause.”

    Qur’an:9:5 – “Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.”

    Qur’an:9:112“The Believers fight in Allah’s Cause, they slay and are slain, kill and are killed.”

    Qur’an:9:29“Fight those who do not believe until they all surrender, paying the protective tax in submission.”

    Qur’an:8:39“Fight them until all opposition ends and all submit to Allah.”

    Qur’an:8:39“So fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief [non-Muslims]) and all submit to the religion of Allah alone (in the whole world).”

    Ishaq:587“Our onslaught will not be a weak faltering affair. We shall fight as long as we live. We will fight until you turn to Islam, humbly seeking refuge. We will fight not caring whom we meet. We will fight whether we destroy ancient holdings or newly gotten gains. We have mutilated every opponent. We have driven them violently before us at the command of Allah and Islam. We will fight until our religion is established. And we will plunder them, for they must suffer disgrace.”

    Qur’an:8:65“O Prophet, urge the faithful to fight. If there are twenty among you with determination they will vanquish two hundred; if there are a hundred then they will slaughter a thousand unbelievers, for the infidels are a people devoid of understanding.”

    Qur’an:9:123“Fight the unbelievers around you, and let them find harshness in you.”

    Ishaq:578“Crushing the heads of the infidels and splitting their skulls with sharp swords, we continually thrust and cut at the enemy. Blood gushed from their deep wounds as the battle wore them down. We conquered bearing the Prophet’s fluttering war banner. Our cavalry was submerged in rising dust, and our spears quivered, but by us the Prophet gained victory.”

    This is just the tip of the Iceberg

      the funny thing is devil, when you confront a Muslim with these texts, that are in their sacred scriptures, the response in 95% of the time is “THESE ARE TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT” followed by a long sermon why Islam is so peace loving……….You should learn the whole Quran………………………………bla bla bla………I MEAN SERIOUSLY WOULD A PEACE LOVING RELIGION, HAVE STATEMENTS LIKE THIS UNDER “ANY” CONTEXT??????????

        Hard though it may seem in that narrow world of ignorance, Islam is NOT the only religion that has violent verses (which their followers are expected to use their intelligence and interpret it accordingly)
        Religious scholars and learned researchers have found that the BIBLE and the TORAH have violent verses too. The only difference here is, you do not find decent people quoting or lying about those scriptures like some haters do here, in fact the violence against non Jews (called “goyim”) is quite prevalent in the Talmud. They refer to non Jews as “animals” that can be killed and meant to serve them, but of course, you do not know all this. Funny thing.

        “Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews, in his weekly Saturday night sermon. “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi [Arabic, meaning lord or master] and eat,” he said to some laughter.

        Yosef, the spiritual head of the Shas party and the former chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel also said that non-Jews are protected in order to prevent financial loss to Jews.

        “With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew,” said the rabbi…

        and many in Israel excuse him saying he was OUT OF CONTEXT too.

        There are over 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, and the majority are PEACE LOVING.

        Wikipedia

        Claims that monotheistic religions are inherently violent
        Some critics of religion such as Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer argue that all monotheistic religions are inherently violent. For example, Nelson-Pallmeyer writes that “Judaism, Christianity and Islam will continue to contribute to the destruction of the world until and unless each challenges violence in “sacred texts” and until each affirms nonviolent power of God”.[7]

    Islam is going to be in the news again. Hostility rises when Islam is in the news. This is going to be an excellent opportunity for extremist in Burma and Sri Lanka to intensify their activities. Meanwhile further investigations will go on in India regarding this terrorist group… (the same old script)

      Islamabad (AsiaNews) – This morning two Islamic fundamentalists attacked a Protestant church, the Assembly of God Church, in Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, shooting at a policeman on guard several times. Before they fled the scene, they took the dead officer’s weapon and fired at the church. Why do they do that? Isn’t it because Quran ask its followers to kill the Christians?

      Benadict, where in Sri Lanka Buddhists did such murder or fire at churches, mosques or Kovils even at make shift takaran ones. Turn you writing against the potential killers and not those who point out killer verses in scriptures.

    Without going out of the tangent,Terrorism in religious places can not be justified under any political theory. Local politics is different thing.

    According to most of the comments my conclusion is – “when buddhists kill the muslims in Mynamar is the fault of the Buddhist extremists, and when a Buddhist religious place of worship is attacks IT’S ALSO THE FAULT OF THE BUDDHIST EXTREMISTS”. Interesting………………………………………….. I’ll bet the the killing of buddhists in myanmar, 9/11 attack, destruction of bamiyan buddha statues, bali bombing, stoning people without trial, killing young girls for dancing in the rain, decapitating infidels WERE ALL FAULTS OF THE BUDDHIST EXTREMISTS AS WELL…………… Damn these Buddhist bastards!!!!!!!!!!!

    Most of these comments are out of the topic. This is really a muslim terorrist’s attack. This is another example to show that Sri Lankan people have to watchful. Muslims are terorrist everywhere and at all the time. This attack re-approves this reality.

      That is what I always say. Quran can be interpreted by the cleric as it pleases him. the result is extremist – cult or a peaceful religion. In this case, it became an extremist cult.

    Isn’t it pathetic that the same Sinhala Budhist bashers trying to be apologists to Indian Terrorists, when these innocent monks don’t have the slightest resemblence to our Sinhalese?.

    What our inhabitants must be concerned is whether these Indian Terrorists will do the same to our Sinhala Buddhist Monks in Nagadeepa, when the Indian Govt forces us to give LTTE proxies their own Police and remove the Military from the North?.

      FYI Nagadeepa monks were never ever harmed even during the height of the war,why because the monks there were following Buddhas teachings properly and always treated everyone equally and even when the Navy men tried to harm civillians whenever they got hit,the monk stopped their antics,those monks were held in high regards then and now,unlike their counterparts in the BORU BALA SENA who are nothing but thuggas of the 1st class

    Shocking how people who harbour hatred use a despicable attack of this nature to express their feelings aginst ethnic, religious or political targets. Whatever may be happening in Sri Lanka, Burma or any other country is attacking a place where innocent people gather an acceptable way of responding? Rumour is of course used to justify the actions however reprehensible.

    What a heap of rubbish do we read here!This is an occasion when everyone, Buddhist or non-Buddhist should join together in condemning this dastardly act. Not a word in that direction! It is no good directing the accusing finger at anyone just because Bihar Police things it is the work of Mujahidin. That is not right. Who did the attack on Mahabodhi premises in Chennai? Did Jayalalitha employ Muhidijjin? Equally so,it is not right to use the sad occasion to bring out one’s prejudices against the Rajapaksa govt. Cannot this forum be directed towards more civility rather than making it a playfield of hatemongers and sadists?

    Firstly these acts should be condemned by all humans.

    These kind of acts are against all Islamic Sharia principles and Human morality.

    Tomorrow if they find out that the bombs were planted by Buddhist extremists themselves to justify some cause we could find some so called Buddhists justifying it. If killing other humans and killing yourself can be justified as honorable and moral then what is there to say about an act such as this.
