Remember the violent protests by Muslim community in India regarding Myanmar riots ?? Remember Azad Maidan riots ? They said they were protesting against the death of their muslim brothers of Myanmar. But last week, a video release…
ေမာင္ ဇာ နီ ရဲ့ သီ တ ဂူ ဆ ရာ ေတာ္ အား မ ထီ မဲ့ ျမင္ ေစာ္ ကား ေသာ စ ကား မ်ား ။
Pro-Islamic, Muslims apologist and anti-Myanmar Maung Zarni is insulting Sitagu Sayadaw because the venerable has said that most religions are based on Fear and people are manipulated by aggressive religions. Sayadaw is just advocating for peace.
Sayadaw finally said “ဒါေၾကာင့္ ဒို႕ကေတာ့ ျမတ္ဗုဒၶဆုံးမတဲ့အတိုင္း favour (favoritism) ႏွင့္ fear အစြန္း နွစ္ဘက္က လြတ္ေအာင္ေရွာင္ၿပီး ဒို႔တိုင္းျပည္နဲ႕ ဒို႔လူမ်ိဳးကို ဓမၼဓိဌာန္ က်က် ေစာင့္ေရွာက္ ကာကြယ္ သြားမည္ ျဖစ္ေၾကာင္း ေျပာၾကားလိုပါတယ္္။”
This is just truth-hurt phenomenon to Maung Zarni.
Good morning Honorable gentlemen
Welcome to Sitagu International Buddhist Academy. I am glad to meet and to discuss with you.
There are six major Religions in the world today. Since Human beings came on Earth, people worshipped the Sun, the Moon and various deities. They also sought refuge in them on the basis of fear. It was called a primitive religion. Most of scholars stated that horror initiated the religions of those days. The Buddha also clearly said that the idea and concept of religions originated from fear. Therefore every religion has full responsibility for the removal of fear which is sticking on the mind of people. But, on the contrary, it is regrettable that a fearful religion and its followers emerged in the world.
After the primitive religions there appeared Hinduism. And afterwards, Jainism also came out on the Land where Hinduism was being flourished. Forty years after the emergence of Jainism, there appeared Buddhism also. Buddhism appeared on the birth place of Hinduism and Jainism and peacefully coexisted with them for ages. There was no traceable history of bloodshed and conflict among them. Also there was no violence and quarrel even on the statement issued by the Hindus saying that the Buddha was an incarnation of God Vishnu. We had only oral and written arguments.ted as slaves when the United States of America was established. In the same way, the English rulers illegally imported labourers from India and Bangladesh to Myanmar for the hard labour during their rule.
Six hundred years after the Buddha, Jesus Christ appeared in the World. In the ten commandments of Christianity we find many similarities with Buddhism in the field of Morality and Noble practice. Christian missions tried to flourish their faith when they came to the East Asian countries such as India, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Korea and Japan. The people of those countries were non-Christians. But, even after the arrival of Christianity also there was peaceful coexistence between Christians and non-Christians. No history of conflict can be traced to any side. Because all the Hindus, Janis and Christians are walking together on the common platform of their respective teachings, that is Morality, Loving-kindness and compassion. The religion, founded based on Loving-kindness and compassion, has no conflict and it does only social welfare services like Health, Education and other social infrastructures.
In Myanmar, many Christians converted to Buddhism in the past as well as at the present. They did it not because they were forced by the Buddhists. Similarly, many of Buddhists also converted to Christian faith. No single Christian threatened them to do so. They did it of their own free will. Every religion has and should have freedom of worship and freedom of belief. Look at the Crusade that prolonged about forty years. It was recorded in the history of the world.
We have to note that the beginning of conflict is aggressiveness and extremism either in the field of religion or that of politics. Today, in Iraq, the Islamic extremists are forcing ancient Zoroastrians to change their faith into Islam. They even threatened them to kill if their demand is not met. In Africa, a Muslim woman was given the death sentence just because she has converted to Christianity. Therefore, we, the East Asian Buddhist countries are living in constant daily fear of falling under the sword of the Islamic extremists. As we are lacking power and influence, we cannot compete against with the rapid growth of Islamic world.
There was a recorded history that in the thirteenth century A.D, a Muslim army marched from Turkey through India and destroyed Pala Buddhist dynasty and converted it into Islamic state. Pala Buddhist dynasty was none other than present Bangladesh. In the south of Philippine, the Islamic extremists revolted against the government for twenty years. Today, they established a Muslim state there. The Islamic extremists are holding weapons in the south of Thailand to make it a separate Muslim state.
Every religion, according to me, should perform its activities only for the good and welfare of the people. But, today, Islamic extremists are trying to establish Islamic states by waging war against non-Muslims. It is regrettable that they are performing the holy war (Jihad) on the name of God.
