    Yes, but isn't that what monks as trusted moral compasses of society should be looking out for and then teach them what is good and bad according to load Buddha's teachings?

    Appreciate the government for its action. Now it makes everyone aware that no organisation or any individual can take law into their hands to target any community to instigate another communal violence and destroy the hard fought peace that our country achieved after 30 years of war. Another communal violence in our country would make our neighbour India happy. via DM Android App
