Firstly , have never seen or likely to see buddhahu akbar as it doesn't appear in any existing or known language klew.. (pretty lame attempt at trying to be funny and/or intelligent )

BUT my point in that violent acts perpetrated by members of ANY religion is proven..
Examples include Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka actively taking part in the horrific violence of the Sinhalese
against the Tamils..Tibetan monks joining in the extreme unrest and rioting which involved using molotov
cocktails in causing heavy damage to businesses and property as is shown in this clip ( would've been interesting what these monks would have done if they'd been under brutal Isreali occupation...)

Should I also mention the tens of millions of murdered in overwhelmingly Buddhist majority countries
by the Buddhists themselves?? Just a few here, this being from a website...

1.... The Cambodian killing fields were red in blood, not because the Khmers were docile Buddhists.
2.... The violence perpetuated in Buddhist Vietnam between rivals ..(more violent than any seen)
3.... Where was Mahayana Buddhism during the Sun Yet Sun and Maoist civil war?
4.... Why was Buddhist philosophy in hiding during the rape of Nanking by Buddhist (Japanese) soldiers?
5..... Why was the "enlightenment" absent during the abduction of 300,000 Korean women by Buddhist (Japanese) soldiers in Korea?
6..... The human rights records of Laos, and Burma are not written in gold in the history books of tolerance and enlightenment.

These are some examples of violence by Buddhists klew.. So It is NOT the religion, but politics, injustice, colonialism, and occupation that create violence. Point proven in that there may be no violence in the Buddhist teachings but human nature follows it's own course...

Submitting....
