A Buddhist mob has attacked a mosque in the Grandpass area of the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, leaving at least five people injured.
Buddhists and Muslims clashed after the attack, and police imposed a curfew in the area.
The past year has seen mounting religious tension in the country as hardline Buddhist groups have attacked mosques and Muslim-owned businesses, as well as churches and clergy.
In February, one group also called for the abolition of the Muslim halal system of certifying foods and other goods.

When non-Muslims are attacked by Muslims in Muslim nations, the event is usually portrayed as being the direct results of the teachings of Islam.
When its the other way round, commentators quickly isolate the perpetrators so as to not taint their faith. In this case Buddhism is not to blame, but rather the few misguided people identifying themselves as Buddhists.
As you can already see in this thread, people will find ways to justify assaults on Muslims.
