PBS Aired the Video “The Buddha” With Mixed Information
Posted by worldamity on April 8, 2010
The PBS in USA aired the Buddha Documentary I part last night. There were lots of campaigns against PBS suggesting either to stop airing the video or to correct the wrong information about Buddha in the video. Specially the campaigns were concentrated in International Social Network Facebook. It is airing II part tonight. It aired last night with mixed information. It says both ‘his mother, a queen of small Indian kingdom“, ‘great Indian sage’ and “In Southern Nepal, at the foot of the Himalayas, is one of the world’s holiest places, Lumbini where, according to the sacred tales, the Buddha was born.” The campaigners were optimistic with their campaigns as PBS is considered as reputed company, however; due to the time constrain money matter seemed to be more important than the factual information to PBS as well.
