Our Minister of Public Relations (Disasters) has done it again. He is holding a protest at Muneswaram Kali Kovil on September 1 to prevent the animal sacrifices that are part of the religious festivities that happen there.
Hundreds of Buddhist monks and layman are also joining to protest to save those poor goats. After all, it is far more important to save goats than to prevent the abuse of your fellow man.
Now I understand that Buddhism is a philosophy of peace, detachment from the world, and respect for all life. But if you are going to be on that march, you better be vegetarians.
Can anyone spell ‘hypocrisy’? (Hint: It rhymes with Deviled Chicken)
