UN imperial agenda to destroy Buddhism
Posted on October 26th, 2016

 Facts speak louder than words. There is little doubt that the UN created by victors of World War 2 is Eurocentric with aim to safeguard interests of Western imperialists. UN resolutions are enforced as per imperialist agenda. Selective application and double standards of human rights make a mockery of the entire UN system. World Bank and IMF are used to draw countries into debt and freedom and democracy are marketed only to allow puppets to come to power. The last people to preach on human rights are the nations responsible for heinous acts throughout colonial rule and plunder. Buddhism was a target of annihilation by these very nations that today preach accountability, secularism and equalities when none of their sins and war crimes have never even been investigated. The objective since colonial Europeans arrived was to annihilate Buddhism and the Buddhist heritage of Sri Lanka. UN is carrying out that insidious gameplan today on behalf of these countries.

Christian colonial plunderers used Bible and Sword to bring people to their knees. Today the tools being used are the UN, associated entities & puppet lackey officials happy to forsake their nation, race and religion to mingle with the white West,

UN is pro-Christian http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2016/03/08/is-un-pro-christian-and-continuing-to-carry-out-the-white-mans-burden/comment-page-1/

When countries of the West except Russia and Austria have not even accepted Buddhism as an official religion and when Muslim majority nations will not even allow a Buddhist statue to be carried inside their country, how can their officials preach equal religious rights and demean Buddhists and Buddhism?

Let us also remind everyone that when Japan proposed the inclusion of Racial Equality to the Charter of the League of Nations it was the West that vehemently refused!


In June 2005 the Joint Committee of Buddhist Organizations, Sri Lanka accused United Nations Special Rapporteur Asma Jehangir of falsifying and distorting facts in a press release on the issue of unethical conversions.


UN regularly issues statements and reports denigrating Buddhists making vile accusations even before closure of investigations but refrains from inserting to their reports the attacks upon Buddhist shrines, Buddhist archaeological monuments including the attack on the Sacred Bo Tree and the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy. All this despite the UN declaring destruction of cultural property as a war crime. The attacks on Buddhist priests does not even get mentioned. The recent Jaffna protests and the vandalizing of Buddhist statues also have not received any UN response whatsoever.

The latest hit comes from the UN rapporteur on minority issues airing issues regarding minorities constructing new places of worship. She has not travelled around to see that majority of religious structures being erected even in residential areas are Islamic madrasas, Evangelical churches and even garages being turned into Hindu kovils.

These flying officials single out Article 9 of Sri Lanka’s constitution because that is the focal point aimed to change – the key to kicking off the slow death to the Buddhist heritage and ethos of Sri Lanka. Efforts are now taking place to build up arguments to justify the change.

Vatican City was a created state, will Vatican allow other religions equal status? Muslim majority nations will never even afford any status to any other religion but Islam and Christian West having dabbled with Islam migrants for economic gain are now turning their racism on the very people they invited into their country.

Christians and Islam who have a murderous history both past and present have no moral standing to be preaching. UN or any foreign envoy cannot take one single example of Bodu Bala Sena which emerged only after 2012 to dilute and deny the place of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. BBS has not thrown a single stone or killed any person except to publicly make statements that not many people want to hear but no one can produce evidence to prove these statements as wrong. The best option that they resort to is to ridicule the messenger so that the message gets pushed to the background.

UN does not hesitate to release statements against Buddhists in Myanmar but never releases statements on armed Muslims associated with Western imperial jihadists attacking the indigenous people of Myanmar. UN response is closely linked to West’s pivot to Asia and designs by West to capture territory bordering China with ulterior motives and the armed Rohingyas projected as the discriminated minority is excellent reason to interfere and intervene in Myanmar. The UN and West as a policy are using the minority discrimination tagline as a convenient battering ram. The UN has helped Western imperialists dilute country laws and suffocate administrative and law & order systems making it easier for the West to devour targeted nations.

The Research report by Prof. Jeremy Carrette of the University of Kent’s Dept of Religious Studies confirms that within the UN there is no religious equality for equal UN goals to exist.

  • UN is a pro-Christian world body.
  • Over 70% of NGOs in the UN were Christian representing Christian interests & ideology (According to the Union of International Associations, there are approx. 33,500 international NGOs in the world) Many of them have consultative status at the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in the United Nations
  • Vatican is the ONLY Religion to be given a special observer status as both state & religion – how equal of religions is that? It gives a special ‘moral leadership’ to one religion only. But this very religion has been responsible for inquisitions.
  • The report even called for greater transparency & equality in the way the UN & religious NGOs operate.
  • The report also highlighted the incongruences’ as funding would be inequal
  • The report highlighted how while more than 70% of NGOs were pro-Christian, the Islamic States were represented through Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
  • Dharmic faiths are under-represented and lack funding major drawback for equal access and level playing field globally as religions form an important part in international global politics and the religious NGO groups (Catholics, Quakers, Bahai) have the highest number of meetings with UN diplomats thus influencing their decisions. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jan/01/united-nations-too-christian-report

Study on International Religious Organizations in the UN by Marie Juul Peterson of University of Copenhagen, Denmark highlights https://sites.tufts.edu/jha/archives/847

  • Religion’s emerging importance – Evangelical right has become a political force in US, Catholic Church role in democratic transitions in Eastern Europe, growth of Pentecostal movement in Latin America & militant Islam since 2001.
  • Increase in religious organizations/faith-based organizations involved in development & humanitarian aid.
  • World Vision a religious NGO gets US Govt 1.6billion funding
  • World Bank says 50% of health & education services in Sub-Saharan Africa is by Faith-Based Organizations funded by Western Governments to instil Western Christian culture.
  • Role of religious organizations in development & humanitarian aid is being drawn by Christian bodies thus tilting processes in their favor – Religion & Global Development headed by Katherine Marshall, World Faiths Development Dialogue established by former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Carey of Clifton is also involved. Thus Christian religions are generating the rules of justice, social change, development etc as per their ideological thinking. There is nothing secular or equal
  • Of the 3,183 NGOs with consultative status at ECOSOC, 320 are religious. World Visions’ vision is an international partnership of Christians whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation, seek justice and bear witness to the good news of the Kingdom of God’. Similarly, Muslim NGOs refer to Quran and Prophet Mohammad.
  • Most international NGOs have their origin and headquarters in Western Europe or North America

Mainstream media owned by corporates linked to Western governments are quick to give passing reference to crimes by Christians but takes pain to ridicule the Buddhists who react. Content analysis of the English media will prove this beyond doubt. Buddhists, victims of HATE SPEECH and Media manipulation http://archives.dailynews.lk/2013/06/20/fea01.asp

Very little global media attention went to the attacks on Mosques and Muslims in the UK following the killing of a British soldier. The UK government that preachers human rights in the halls of the UN makes no apology to how more than of all Britain’s mosques have been attacked since 9/11 and Muslims in UK suffer racism and hate speech. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/crime/half-of-britain-s-mosques-have-been-attacked-since-911-8679304.html

Set against this in Sri Lanka when Buddhists react to actions by minorities without highlighting the wrong actions, the reaction and reactors are projected as being the wrong party and ridiculed through the media to such an extent that the politicians themselves end up having little choice but to take action against the reactors based on the hype portrayed by the media. http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2014/07/10/sinhala-muslim-riots-sri-lankan-local-media-blackout-on-version-of-ayagama-samitha-thero/

Take the example of Myanmar – Rohingyas and their origins are never allowed to be debated but the entire global emphasis is on violations against them without so much as giving any media attention to the fact that these groups are being armed and trained by Islamic fundamentalists connected to the West and Muslim satellite states to use ‘ethnic tensions’ as a means for the UN to cry foul and land as interventionists and conflict solvers. Very systematic attempt is taking place to use Rohingyas to infiltrate Islamic groups to set up mosques around Buddhist sites with long term motive to stir future tensions all with complicity and nod of approval by West and UN. Every statement from UN is only on the ‘killings’ by Buddhists upon Muslims and nothing is released about the mayhem by Muslims upon Buddhists. The name calling of Buddhists has reached shameful and exaggerated heights. http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2014/07/10/sinhala-muslim-riots-sri-lankan-local-media-blackout-on-version-of-ayagama-samitha-thero/ ‘TIME’ Magazine was wrong – Burmese nationalist monk Wirathu stands vindicated http://archives.dailynews.lk/2013/07/06/fea02.asp

Similarly when Buddhist temples were attacked in Bangladesh the UN system was silent. 25,000 Muslims went on a rampage to destroy ancient Buddhist sites/temples. https://www.rt.com/news/buddhist-temples-torched-bangladesh-342/

UN action against attacks on Buddhists in South Korea was no different despite Ban Ki Moon’s mother being a Buddhist though he converted to Christianity as that was the only means to progress in education and career http://www.sriexpress.com/articles/item/790-unhrc-turns-blind-eye-to-attacks-on-buddhist-temples-in-south-korea.html


The media enjoys giving selected Abrahamic writers a field day to ridicule Buddhists through regular feature columns and will hardly permit right of replies. Most often Poya Day is used by the English newspapers in Sri Lanka to have writers scoff at Buddhism instead of writing the merits of Buddhist compassion. The English newspapers of Sri Lanka often indulge in this ugly practice. It is suggested that Buddhists stop buying these English dailies on account of the bias as enough of updates on local and international affairs are available freely on the internet. Why pay to read biased and double standard newspapers?

Sri Lanka’s Media racist towards Buddhists http://www.lankaweb.com/news/items/2014/05/10/sri-lankas-media-racist-towards-buddhists/


Neither the UN nor the so-called international community can claim to be impartial, unbiased and treating all nations, their people and all religions equally. The UN is pro-Christian and protecting the interests of imperial Western agenda. Part of that agenda is to totally destroy the dharmic faiths. Buddhism is not only a religion but a scientifically proven philosophy – media campaigns cannot tarnish the essence of the ideology though plenty of efforts will be taken to buy over Buddhists, even Buddhist clergy (the Dalai Lama for example does not represent Buddhists as he is promoting Western interests and multiculturalism – he has never said any word on the violence against Buddhists or stood up for Buddhists under attack)

Therefore, it is of paramount importance that the Buddhist Associations/Organizations realize the dangers and the plans in progress and use international forums to meet these challenges and align with fellow Buddhist nations to build a bloc to protect each other.

    Shenali, have you heard of reconversion of Buddhists back to Hinduism in India under Modi. Monks from the island are going to be given visas so they will come back with more Hindu gods.

    Sri Pada is surrounded by Indian colonial parasites and there is a University of Hinduism there.

  2. Fran Diaz Says:

    Buddhism (Truth) can never be destroyed – it is the Absolute Truth !
    Can Human Life Values be destroyed ? NO.
    The Core Teachings of all religions are similar to Buddhism.
    So how can Buddhism be destroyed !

    Christ said “the Kingdom of Heaven is ‘Within YOU’
    The Buddha said “Truth is Within YOU”
    Islam means Peace – ‘Within YOU’
    The Core Teachings of Hinduism are the Four Great Yogas. Raja Yoga is MEDITATION (Self Realisation) – ‘Within YOU’.

    The UNP of the old tymes (DS, Dudley, and even JRJ with some sound ground values) is highly desired with sound new leaders. Will that ever happen ?
    We hope so.
    We certainly hope that the next time around, INDIA would have recovered from whatever major reasons that ails her.

    Lord Buddha had lot of compassion and thought about the future. As I understand, Saudi Arabia was called “Yonakpura” during buddha’s time, Arahant “punna” was from that region, had buddhist temples and on On Arahant Punna’s request, buddha Left buddha’s Sripada – marks in Mecca. LAter gods covered it with a hugh Stone which muslims worship right now.

    Even in Sri lanka, buddhists are mis-interpreting so many things wrong. So, we should let muslims come to Sri pada and kneel there.

    but, we should find ways to make them not violent towards buddhism but respectful to Buddhism.

  4. Fran Diaz Says:

    That Buddhist places of worship must be protected through the Constitution, and that the Buddhist population of Sri Lanka (and the rest of the world), be protected through the UN and other world organisations, is a must.
    UN : R2P for Lanka’s Buddhists and Buddhist Nations a must.

    See the number of Buddhist countries that have gone under aggressive others !
    Google the words ‘Persecution of Buddhists’ and see what happened to Buddhists of the world.

    Wake up, Lankans !
    Guard your country. Put in place the Laws to guard Lanka’s Buddhist living heritage and see that they are followed through.
