Awesome! So many Theravada Buddhists protested the following nonsense:
Preaching false teachings about Buddha dying should be protested, the Suttas clearly state The Lord sent out holograms of himself and he is immortal, amatassa datta, the giver of immortality.

A decade or so ago, an official letter of warning from the Police Special Branch Division landed on my desk. It was about an article by a physician-turned-monk entitled "How the Buddha died" in the former Outlook section I was working on back then.
The article tried to diagnose the Buddha's illness based on evidence in the scripture. It was deemed a national security threat because it had the nerve to describe the Buddha in his last days as a sick old man.
The message was clear: "Don't ever do it again."
