Fc*k Independent, colonist media. You exaggerate. Buddhists don't kill. they are only defending their right to remain buddhist. Loook what Islam preaches and what they killed an English solider.

They are taking over various territories in the host countries by enforcing no- go zones where police can't set foot in due to fear of stoning and non-Muslims get harrassed so much they have to move out of their home and town. People who do something about this situation to defend their homeland are maligned as " racist". It is to stop people from defending their family, friends , home, and country.

Doing battle with Mara? The creator of lies, false forms, false views.

Have faith in the Tatagatha. With mind cleansed, see clearly. The true fight is in your mind.
