E.Rajesh Pathak Throwing the light on the downfall of Buddhism in India Dr. Bheemrao Ambedkar said-‘When Muslim ruler, Bakhtiyaar Khilji, invaded Bihar he killed more than five thousand Buddhist monks. Remaining of the Buddhists fled to China, Nepal and Tibet. In order to revive Buddhism the followers later tried to raise monasteries, but till then 90% Buddhists had gone back to the fold of Hinduism. Therefore these efforts came a cropper.'[See, Dr Ambedkar aur samajik kranti ki yatra; p-321] This Ambedkar said when he had adopted Buddhism. But today, jointly masterminded by Communists, jehadists and crypto-Christians, a mission is being deceptively carried out in the country to establish the notion that because of their ‘common’ socio-economic state this is the need of the hour that Muslims, Christians, Adivasis and Budhist- Dalits should come together to express their ‘solidarity’. And regarding this even the organizations like BAMCEF, Mool Niwasi Sangh and such other have grown active, and the slogans coined by them inciting the division in the communities could even be read on the walls in different places. But before being swayed under any such kind of evil-design all those under target are needed to be mindful of what is stated by Ambedkar above. So also they should not forget as to how in Bamiyan of Muslim-majority Afghanistan Buddha’s antique statues of 6th century was razed to ground by jihadists not long back. And how for the peace loving followers of Buddha it had got to be difficult to live the life at ease in their own country of Maynmar due to rabid hordes of Rohingya Muslims. Ultimately owing to which they had to take the recourse of retaliation under the guidance their Buddhist monks. And then how, outdone in their own game, Rohigyas had to flee the country only to take refuge in different countries including India is there for all to see. Initially waged against Christians during Easter, Jihad in Srilanka has now taken Sinhalese Buddhists into its fold. Buddhists monasteries and temples have now come under the tight vigil of police force. Active in Sri Lanka, Muslim Touhidjamat is suspected to have been the brain behind the incident. This has got to be the cause of concern for India no less, for religious programmes sponsored by the Touhidjamat run in the TV channels operated in South India.However, after this incident Christian fundamentalist organizations there in Sri Lanka have begun to term this as ‘Jihad’ against Christianity. The case of our neighbour country, Bangladesh, is no different. It is because of Jihadi terrorism poor and backward Buddhist Chakma tribal community is forced to migrate from there and take shelter in India. In Muslim majority Pakistan along with the Hindus, Ahmadias and Christians are living the life suffered with harrowing religious atrocities. Due to rabid Mullahs that Aasiyabiwi whose life had got to be hell in Pakistan that Aasiyabiwi is none other than Christian this also should not be overlooked.
