End sectarian strifes in Northern Ireland. Give it back to Ireland. Send Ulster Scots back to Scotland.
Give all those Burmese towns with Muslim majority back to Buddhists and send Bengali illegal immigrants back to Bangladesh., country of Bangla.
In classical Hindu, Indians call Bramahdesh, country of creator Brahmah, ancient name.
Buddha was born Prince Siddatha, a Hindu prince. After meditating 6 years Lord Buddha found enlightenment and the path to Nirvana through righteous deeds, not by killing anyone for fictious god.
Buddhism arrived in Burma during Buddha's life time. Afghanistan was a Buddhist country, forcibly converted to Islam.
Just look what is happening threre. Look at what is happening in Bruxelle, swamped by Muslims by Medi tration station. There will be problems everywhere with the muslims.
Rohingas should settle in Islamic countries. That is the only way to stop the sectarian strifes in Yakhine of Burma.

Peace, tolerance, what the hell! Everything is a colonial legacy. For f*c* sake, thousands of years of Burmese history cannot be erased and replaced by a short colonial occipation.
When you talk about tolerance, the other side takes action to rape, loot and drive out native Buddhists.
With the rebels, it was the Panglong dictate of ex-coloniser England that caused the divisions.
That coupled with Christianisation of SOME so-called minorities was the very root of Burma's problem.
Barroso should know that SuuKyi Aris is not interested in anything but Presidency in 2015.
Burmese tend to cut the nose to spite the face.
They have no idea what will follow if SuuKyi Aris gets power.
Did the Burmese understand the consequences of Panglong? No.
Aung San was duped bg evil Clement Attlee who was twice his age.Attlee 64, AungSan 32.
Thakin BaSein refused to be part of it because he foresaw the consequences.
Burmese rrally have to learn how to think. You can't ask for peace like children adking for sweets.
The state of Burma must be very strong to protect the society of Burma, mraning it must be unitary not federal.
EU's aim is integration by 'federal' as the US.
Stupid Burmese takes the opposite way, disintegration/balkanisation by 'feferalising' initary Burma.
Bathann Win n Canada is the most stupid Burmese in exile. He completely fails to undestand that because of Panglong all the problems arose and so the need to transfer power to ShuMaung(!so-called NeWin)
He and a few other stupid think that because Panglong was not implemented the problems arose. How stupid. Panglong was the timebomb the coloniser left behind. In any case no indeprndent country has to obey the dictate of a former coloniser. Every country has to find its own way to democracy WHILST maintaining SOVEREIGNTY. In the case of Burma that is not at all compatible with Panglong. Moronic traitor Bathann Win completely fails to understand.
SuuKyi Aris is redundant but England schemes to cut Burma into pieces using her hand holding the knife of Panglong.
Understand, Mr. Barroso? Ciao!

The following comment was posted by "Sampuna", a Malaysian Chinese & Theravada Buddhist at the TOPIX Buddhism forum.

Original post is here:

----------
This comment was written by Sampuna, a Malaysian Chinese & Theravada Buddhist. His original text is intact. I just repost it.

Now you are talking. You were not in Rakhine. Note : Rakhine is still overwhelmingly Buddhist despite a strong presence of Muslims there. What more to say,the whole country is Buddhist.

Let me share with you my side of the story & perhaps you can relate to why I came out with such seemingly 'irritating' solutions here & consistent reference to Metta & Karuna.

I'm a 4th generation Chinese, Buddhist,growing up in Malaysia,with a Muslim majority,while we Buddhists are the largest religious minority. The only native Buddhist here are the Thai descendents,the rest are descendents of early immigrants to this Muslim country.

Of course,many things are Muslim here,like Myanmar where almost everything has got to do with Buddhism.Sensitive matters over here is the same as in Myanmar : religious sentiments & racial issues.

We had gone through the darkest chapter of national history,with communal clashes that ended with thousands dead nationwide. Myanmar is just experiencing the beginning. Believe me,it takes a couple more decades before the racial sentiments cool down and everyone start to trust one another.

We are not alking about Buddhist, Muslim or any other religious label here. We're talking about nation building. Being a Buddhist land,shouldn't Metta & Karuna take the centre stage to teach the non-Buddhists there to appreciate Buddhism,and perhaps one day,their affinity with the Buddha Dhamma may one day ripen & they would one day embrace the way of the Dhamma?

How the majority of the so-called 'Buddhists' treat other non-Buddhist Myanmar nationals are turning them away from Buddhism.

When I was in Myanmar way back in 2005,I have personally seen a dark skinned nun (perhaps Rohingya or Indian?) among hundreds of nuns in Mahasi Sasana Yeikhtha. I have also seen some dark skinned nationals paying respect to Golden Rock Pagoda when I was there.More violence like this and we won't see more originally non-Buddhists coming to check out BUddhism.

It's in the name of the sublime Dhamma and humanity that i'm writing this. We are fellow humans,not perfect in everyway,but towards good,we must strive.Especially when we derive our practise from the BUddha,whose history was clean from any act of violence.

Don't be utterly ridiulous! You can't teach muslims Buddhism.
Are you mad?
Why don't you teach Malays Buddhism.
Buddhists are prepared to learn other religions whereas Muslims just laugh at the Buddha, calling Buddha Fat Man.And what about the Buddha statues of Bamiyan in Afghanistan?
Get real.
Malays were Hindus to begin with. Burma achieved statehood centuries before Malaya, that became Malaysia.You simply cannot compare Burma with Malaysia.
Why did Malaya become Islamic? Think about it?
How did Hindus become muslims?
Get the facts right.
There is no place for tolerance in dealing with muslims because tolerance does not exist in their dictionary.
They expect tolerance from others whilst forcing their will on others.
Their aim is to turn the whole world into muslims.

We recognise Buddhist virtues but illegal imigrants are illegal immigrants. No use suggesting your solution to Burma.
We want Rohingyas to go back to Bangladesh or leave for third countries like Malaysia.
In the meantime, they must be treated humanely according to Buddhism.
It is a question of law and order. Rohingyas must be quarantined, with enough food, shelter and medical care. Same facilities must be provided to native Buddhists too to stop resentment.
The problem can be solved humanely with international aid.Burma needs it as it is too poor. Burmese earn less than one quarter of what Thais earn. Thanks to Burmese Way To Socialism, a hotch potch mix of communism and Buddhism - wrongly applied.
Similarly, tolerance suggested by SuuKyi is cunning and wrong application of Buddhism.
Our way is realistic, all things considered.
Yes, be humane to Rohingyas. Stop violence on both sides but quarantine Rohingyas and deport them systematically and humanely. Negotiate with Banglafesh. Offer Bangadesh financial aid too.
