Maybe the Buddhists in Myanmar looked at how Afghanistan (previously a Buddhist country) worked out and thought 'no thanks'! Power to them, better than genocide!

Whole Central Asia(Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan) was Buddhist. Now not a single Buddhist left in Central Asia. One even one. Because Buddhism is monastic religion, if monks are killed, then Buddhism dies. Buddhism also doesn’t have caste system like Hinduism, if Hindu brahmin is killed, his son would preserve Hinduism. But in Buddhism, monks never marry. Once monks are killed, Buddhism vanished from the land. And in Hinduism there is Kshatriya(warrior) caste but there is no such thing in Buddhism. Buddhists monks don’t fight because Buddha said monks to never do violence against sentient beings, Muslim barbarian took advantage of non-violence of Buddhism and whenever there was an Islamic invasion into Buddhist land, no Buddhist was left within 100 years. All monks killed, and Lay Buddhist followers converted under sword and intimidation

Typical of the Left wing Guardian, giving a one sided account of what is happening in Myanmar. As always it's sympathies lie with Islam the most evil and destructive Ideology in the world.

True. Buddhism is peaceful, pacifist, non-aggressive and treats everybody without the caste system. To protect Burma and Buddhism from the dangerous aggressive Jihadi Wahhabism Islam, every party, government, civil society, and every Buddhist in Burma must be on guard to face and deter internal Muslim allies and enemies also external Muslim allies and enemies. Burmese Buddhist have learned invaluable history lesson of how Buddhist country like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, etc. became Muslim dominates countries. Those former Buddhist countries faced internal enemies of converted Muslim fellow countrymen and aggressive external enemies of Muslim allies and Muslim countries.

Look what's happening everywhere in the world...
Where islam comes, comes violence and oppression.
Buddhists know that, they dealt with them before.
In Afghanistan for example, where Buddhism no longer exist because muslims killed them all.

We Hindus are 100% confident that Buddhists are not the cause of the problem in Myanmar.

Buddhism is a very compassionate and peaceful religion that has no reason or motive to harm others. Not a single incident of violence has happened because of Buddhists in past 2500 years !!!

Number of Buddhist Countries Down:

Indonesia - LOST
Malaysia - LOST
Afghanistan - LOST
Bangladesh - LOST....
India....- Down to 0.8% Buddhists.

And maybe in future there will be more and more countries converting to Islam and more and more countries losing Buddhism till it finally goes extinct
