An interesting point of view. What do you think?
There is an old Sinhala metaphor that says ‘Ourage malu ourage enge thiyan kapanawa’ which refers to an act of using a slain pig’s carcass as a table to cut the pig’s flesh on. We find this attitude in certain non-Buddhists who resort to a malicious use of Buddhist references to denigrate or shame Buddhists. Rev Dalston Forbes OMI writing to the Island newspaper on 26 September 2008 an article titled ‘Total Elimination of insurgents?’ falls into this category of people when he quotes “pancha sila” to shame General Sarath Fonseka, the Commander of the Sri Lanka Army for his stated resolve to kill all insurgents.
