Buddhist 'monks' attacks Muslim clothing store.
Such incidents in colombo are in the rise, as along in Burma and Thailand.
It is comprehensible for the buddhists there to feel insecure with regards to Islam. Back in the west, after 911, Islam too faced the same issues, but
over time, through sharing, discussings and finding truths and solutions, co-existance was possible and peace returned in those communities, with
those whom preached or conducted hate were thrown into jails to cool off.
Radicalisation, militancy, facism, supremacy, killings of innocents, successionism, terrorism,dogmatic and false interpretations of the Koran was in
the rage back then, BUT they were only preached and conducted by the few radicals, and did NOT have the support of majority muslims.
Most muslims are more concerned with bread and butter issues, than to join in some stupid egoistical violent spree dressed up as Jihad against their
neighbours. Those militants only manage to recruit the unemployed, the discriminated and the insane to their ranks. to cause mayhem, but have NO
support from the majority of muslims.
Many of the Jihadists have been successfully decimated by the West, and now needs more recuits. So too does the persian apostate infidel leader
Khameni needs the Sunnis distracted from further agression upon the Shias.
What the Buddhist 'monk' had done is to stupidly fall into that trap laid out by them. With the sympathy card used, the terrorists and apostate
Khameni knows that the views of mainstream muslims around the world will be one of enragement, insecurity and will change to support the jihadist
cause with manpower and 'donations to children' scams, bring more militants, supporting staff and weapons.
Buddha was one of the few intelligent men that had ever walked on our planet and left civilisational uplifting teachings to his followers.
Unfortunately, those monks that preach hate, insecurity and violence had not only no intelligence, they tored Buddha's teachings to shreds.
It is high time that UN steps in now BEFORE more harm is done, into Sri Lanka, Burma, and Thailand, with its Inter-Faith organisations and teams, whom
are made up of dedicated honest humans and bright religious scholars, whom can lead better counselling efforts for peaceful co-existance, challenge
radicalism and help eradicated extermism amongst the more simple minded folks.
Bullets alone will not destroy idealogy. Only truths and honest idealogies can kill those falsehoods.
As for the 'preachers' of hate - regardless if they are politicians, religious muslim or buddhist figures, hot blooded insane young men - they MUST be
stopped, arrested and thrown in prison to cool off. A maximum term of hard labour for 15 days and then release them. Each time they incite violence,
they get thrown inside again.
The disruptions in their lives will mess with their lives, along with the hard labour, and criminal record for inciting violence as a warning to
others to avoid these demagogues, and also that 15 days in prison will not let them become the marytrs they dream of, or jam up prisons.
As for the issue of the Islamic dominance in Buddhist majority lands, it is only a fantasy. When muslims are the minority, they only seek to live in
peace and have the freedom to practice their religion in their homes and a central location for gatherings and weddings.
There is no way they can ever dominate the legislative as they are only the minority, no matter how many children they attempt to give birth. Economic
conditions alone will determine the choice parents make to the issue of having children, along with govt subsidies, if any, are given to offset racial
However, they must be given human rights for they are citizens, obeyed the laws of the land, and should not be discriminated in any way. Peaceful
co-existance teachings are the only way to prevent racial and religious violence, through the finding of common grounds that all mankind aspires for,
no matter our differences - peace, justice, equality, shared prosperity, responsible freedom and progress.
Alone, we are incapable of anything, but when you and I combine, together with our families, relatives and friends around the world which makes up our
world we all share, to discuss peacefullly, rationalised issues instead of being manipulated and divided, to find solutions to progress and evolve, -
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
