Invitation Letter of Bangladesh Buddhist Associations, UK


Dear Venerable Bhantes, Sayadaws and Devotees of the temples

 We are writing you on behalf of Bangladesh Buddhist Associations, UK. As you may have heard about the recent brutal arson attacks on Buddhist temples, Buddhist villages and Hindu temples across Chittagong, we are holding a demonstration at the Parliament Square and foreign office to show our solidarity with the victims. The attacks were too much to bear for the minorities and buddhist followers. If we do not have sympathy on Buddhist minorities in Bangladesh, the minorities’ religions (Buddhism or Hinduism) will soon be over from the ancient Buddhist lands. History tells us that the faiths of peaceful religion i.e. Buddhism had been destroyed by invaders and killed them if not converted into their religions. The evidence suggests the same history is repeating again and will continue till our existence and our Buddhist faiths come to an end in the world. The peaceful existence of Buddhists and other religious minorities in Bangladesh are an example and now being under serious threat as the radicalized and extremist Muslim groups are systematically working to eradicate them from the country or disturbed their peaceful livelihood.

Buddhists in Bangladesh never do against Muslim livelihood or their beliefs but we don’t know why they are so aggressive to us or to other religions. Buddhists in Bangladesh are lesser than one percent and they live in fear and trauma. How can we see their suffering simply because they are not Muslim? Why do they attacks on minorities by the name of religion?

Why should you not sacrifice a few hours or a day for the victims out of your compassion by joining us in the protest against such brutal attacks on innocent Buddhists and other minorities? Buddhism and other minority religions may not survive without your help and cooperation although Buddhists live in this country since the birth of Buddhist religion.

We will be very much appreciated and grateful for your presence for this good cause!!!

 Demonstration Date: 11th October 2012 (this coming Thursday) at 2pm to 4pm

 Place: Parliament Square at 2pm and 3pm walk down to 10th Downing Street and foreign office to hand over the petition

 Buddhists Want Peaceful Existence!!

Yours Sincerely,

On behalf of Bangladesh Buddhist Association, UK

ဆရာႀကီး မင္းသုဝဏ္ရဲ႕ ယခုေခတ္ႏွင့္ကိုက္ညီေသာ ကဗ်ာတစ္ပုဒ္

ျမန္မာတို႔အတြက္

ငါသာလွ်င္ေတာ္ သူမေတာ္ရ
လူေတာ္ထင္မွာ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ရမည္လည္း

ၾကြားရင္းႏွင့္နစ္ ဝါးရင္းနစ္သည့္
နစ္လွ်က္ေနပါတို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ရမည္လည္း

အေကာင္းဆိုးထင္ ဆိုးေကာင္းထင္ႏွင့္
အထင္လြဲပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

သူ႔ကိုငါညွိဳး ငါ့သူညွိဳးႏွင့္
အညွိဳးႀကီးပါ တို႔ျမန္မာကို
ဘယ္ခါဆယ္၍ ရမည္လည္း

ၿငီး၍မၿပီး ညဴမၿပီးဘူး
အၿပီးတကာ လုပ္ႏုိင္ပါမွ
ေတာ္ရာေရာက္လိမ့္ ေနာင္အဖို႔
ႏိုးၾကထၾကျမန္မာတို႔ သားေျမးတို႔အတြက္ ႀကိဳးပမ္းစို႔
