    It may suit some of our political priests. They can now quote from the Koran. But Allah the God does not speak to every one he speaks only through his prophets. Allah is not seen. He remains out of sight. So our Buddhist Priests will neither see nor hear Allah speaking to them . They may therefore have to resort to a Prophet if they want to to hear Allah. Therefore in every Buddhist Temple we may provide a corner for a Muslim Prophet to sit so that Allah can converse through him to the Priest of the Temple and vis versa

    Who are these buggers ? Foreigners ?

    ” ……..very respectfully accepted this Holy Book as it is translated in their own language, in a simple manner..”

    So what is your language ? Arabic ?

    “…Venerable Thero said, I will read the Qur’an and tell others what Islam says. ….”

    OK. Tell others what is in there FULLY, not only the sections with “LOVE AND PEACE”, give a sermon about KILLING OF NON BELIEVERES.

    Indonesia was once a Buddhist country. Now it is a Muslim country. So was Afghanistan. I cannot understand why people cannot live and let live as Buddhists do. We do not go round trying to convert others. It was a Sinhala king who took pity on Muslims when the Portuguese were slaughtering the Muslims and gave them some land on the East to go and live. Now they have got money from Saudi Arabia and want to convert all the good Buddhists to their religion.

    South Korea was also a Buddhist Country. Now it is a Catholic country. The Catholics and the Muslims are the most aggressive converters of people to their own religions. Most of the wars in the world today are due to these two groups fighting for supremacy.

    Cerberus, you are 100% correct.
    These two religions destroying the world with their madness to get other religions to their fold.
    Not just indonesia and afganisthan.
    were formerly Buddhist countries.

    Within a few hundred years of arrival in those countries they overwhelmed the natives by multiplying like xxxx.
    This is the same trick these xxxx using in Sri Lanka.
    Then the outnumbered natives had to convert or move to different part to avoid the menace.
    Just looking at the countries they have stolen you can see what misery this religion of hate and mayhem can bring.
    Look at Sryia, iraq or somalia.

    Look at an afgan woman. She can’t see where she is going. Her face is behind a grill. This is a religion fit for medieval times. But in Sri Lanka it is acceptable of course being a mad country!

    Now our mad monks have become their darlings. Another good example is malwatte and asgiriye chiefs cosying up to
    the catholic-run, Buddhist killing, Buddhism destroying UNPatriotic party. Who needs enemies when you have people like

    Misplaced Religious fervor can drive people crazy !

    Yes, it is true that the most wild feelings and wars have come from the Christian & Muslim religious groups. The earlier religious wars in Europe & Middle East were exacerbated greatly by the ‘discovery’ of OIL in the Middle East by T.E. Lawrence, a British subject (Lawrence of Arabia), who found Arabs burning the black crude oil for light.

    Well and good. The problem however is that in Sri Lanka ‘religious harmony’ (whatever it actually means) has been hijacked to convert it into an anti – majoritarian drive intended to shame and make the Sinhala Buddhists (the historic and original majority group in the country) feel guilty on unfounded and imagined wrong doings unceasingly alleged by opportunistic leaders of ethnic and religious minorities eagerly waiting to grab more of Buddhist space in the country. The demonising of Sinhala Buddhists and Buddhism Bashing is now a big industry as reflected day after day in our English language newspapers. It is almost always been one-way traffic. Replies are not published. Sinhala Buddhist point of view is painted as rabble rousing and racist and thereby denied freedom of speech.

    Under the cover of ‘ national integration and religious harmony ‘ there is also another sinister campaign underfoot engineered by devious elements with foreign backing to impose a false history manufactured to show a Christian and Islamic presence at levels of command during both the Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa era and thereby deprive the Sinhala Buddhists of their singular and rightful claim to have established an unique Buddhist Civilization in Sri Lanka.

    The Islamic Heritage Museum in Kattankudy opened in April 2015 is the first of a series of steps taken by radical elements in minority communities to challenge the overriding narratives recorded in respected historical chronicles such as the ‘ Mahavamsa’ and ‘ Rajawaliya’, among others.

    Insidious attempts to re-write history to displace Sinhala Buddhists from the pre-colonial history of Sri Lanka using teledramas and films, museums. Literature etc sometimes even with State funds and assistance of the Dept of Archaeology must be publicly exposed and stopped.

    Look at what has happened overseas.

    In Maldives the Buddhist history has been completely erased and fundamentalists are not allowing even Buddha statues unearthed from destroyed Buddhist sites to be kept on display in their Museums.

    A similar story can be told in respect of several other Muslim countries in the East which were formerly Buddhist lands.

    Let us pray that our political leaders and leading monks will not fall victim to bogus ‘inter – faith’, ‘pluralism’, ‘national integration’ and ‘reconciliation’ type slogans which are nothing but baits to hook the unsuspecting Sinhala Buddhists to give up more of their space to groups who are more loyal to foreign sovereigns rather than the local counterpart.

    Has it ever occurred to the dull and unimaginative minds among our Buddhist leadership to reciprocate the handing over of the Quran to the top Buddhist Clergies by introducing to the Muslim community an Arabic translation of the Dhammapada and also Venerable Professor Walpola Rahula’s What the Buddha Taught, to start with?

    If the Ahmadiya Sect has the courage to present a copy of their religious text to the Maha Sangha why cannot Buddhist Leaders do the same with regard to Buddhists texts written in simple language and get a Muslim religious personality to say “I will read the Dhammapada and tell others in our Islamic community what Buddhism says,”?

    Have our Buddhist organisations given any thought of having copies of the Dhammapada in both English and Arabic placed in our tourist hotels, so that visitors from Middle East can see and read them?

    Isn’t this a fine reciprocal gesture of educating Muslims of the rich treasures of wisdom in Buddhist texts?
