    All fanatics must be condemed whether they are hindus,buddhists, christians,or muslims.People want to live in peace and one should not be biased by religion.

    I hope this is not turned intoa tit-for-tat affair with the so-called Muslim leaders taking political advantage for their own selfish survival . I hope the masses are wise enough to see through their sinister plans,let common sense prevail and let tolerance be their strong point as preached by their religion.

    Ha - this Fish was sleeping when Dambulle Mosque was attacked!

    reporter Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:43 PM

    I am in B,desh closly in touch with the situation. this govt has nothing to do with vandalism or any of the misdeeds. govt cannot control the mob mentality of the people. I will reproduced what PM said about the issue.
    Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina yesterday directed the home minister not to spare anyone, whoever they might be and irrespective of their political affiliation, in connection with the attacks on Buddhist temples and houses.

    She issued the directive after a cabinet meeting at the Prime Minister's Office.

    “All the culprits responsible for the mayhem must be brought to book,” the premier told Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir.
    therefore what happened in SL is inexcusable as BD is a close friend of SL and helped in need. our Govt will have find a place hide their heads.

    Rick Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:55 PM

    Its about time, that the Buddhists finally wake up like the Christain world and realise what an abomonation Islam is!

    reporter Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:58 PM

    it is a dam disgrace to our country to treat like to friendly country. our country should know that it is 160 Million people to 20.2 millions. our monks must be thinking that they have taught a big lesson to Bd but you are sadly mistaken. SL will have to pay dearly

    Recent history witnessed certain Bangladeshli groups are violent. It is not bad to highlight it to world. What is bad is insulting or accuse for religon or certain ethnicity.
    If a dog bite we wont bite back the dog.
    Its shame these groups belive killing a human in another religon is not a sin.I think theire Gov should educate these groups.& set law to protect innocents.

    Pundit Thursday, 04 October 2012 05:07 PM

    Buddha preached non violence.Please do not violate
    the Buddha Dhamma.Killing and violence is not acceptable.
    We are governed by Karma.Your actions and thoughts cannot
    be forgiven.We do not believe in Gods or sacrifices.
    True Buddhist will not hurt any living thing even if they are in danger.Remember the Jataka Story of the Buddha as Bodhisatva.The SL sangha should try to stop this ignorant behaviour.Unless it's caused by someone else to disrepute the SL budhist.I am concerned for the Bangladeshi Buddhist monks,but remember we are a philosophy not a religion.Stay calm and let the Dhamma lead you.There are no Buddhist wars.

    madumesh Saturday, 06 October 2012 12:07 AM

    Of course my brother..! We Buddhists don't won't any negativity to any living being. What you try to tell is 50% true, and that's it!
