Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 7, 2011

It is our Great pleasure to inform you all that the news “ब्रिटिश म्युजियमलाई बुद्ध जन्मस्थल जानकारी सच्याउन थप दबाब दिऔं” is  already history. It is just couple of hours that British Museum Facebook page has notified with its decision to correct in use of location and words to describe birth place of Lord Gautam Buddha in their page.

The page writes: In the spirit of clarity, the British Museum wants to be unambiguous and accurate on this issue – the Buddha was born in Lumbini which is in Nepal. The Museum is always seeking to find the clearest way to put past history into understandable statements in the Museum, on our website and in our online records. Thank you for your feedback. Please be assured this is an important issue to the Museum and has been passed on to our curatorial team to establish where further clarity in the Museum and online may be required.

We would like to thank British Museum listening our voice to keep the Buddha birth place correct information.
