No room for Hitlers, Bokasas and Idi Amins - Kabir Hashim

There is no room for Hitlers, Bokasas and Idi Amins in Buddhism and therefore there can exist no such Kings in our country, Minister Kabir Hashim said.

Addressing a meeting following the inauguration of the ‘Prathiba Exhibition’ at the UC grounds in Warakapola he stressed that King Chandasoka of India mended his ways and policies to turn into a peaceful, kind and compassionate King only after becoming an adherent of Buddhist philosophy.

It is thereafter that he was named Dharmasoka and Mihindu Maha Thera who introduced Buddhism to Sri Lanka was his son. Sri Lanka became a peaceful and prosperous country because of great Kings who followed Buddhism.

“The best gift from Sri Lanka to the world is Buddhism since administrators were loved by their subjects due to Buddhist philosophy”, the Mnister said.
