Buddha_Zee_TVCreating misinformation on Buddha birthplace from Indian side is not a new issue and Buddha born in NepalNepali side is very furious from this kind of regular drama and attempt to take an unnecessary advantage from Buddha’s Global importance. A recent Hindi language television serial, “Buddha” launched by Zee TV Network already frustrated Nepalese by Indian over interference.

In reaction Nepalese did not limit them only in social medias, but also on September 13, staged demonstrations in the streets of Kathmandu against the serial, Nepal Cable TV Association blocked the channel when the new series on the life of Buddha premiered on Sunday (Sept. 8) and which prompted the Indian Embassy in Kathmandu to post hastily the next day, September 14th, on its Facebook wall, “The question of where Lord Buddha was born was settled over 2000 years ago when Emperor Ashoka installed the pillar with his inscription in Lumbini. Buddha was born in Lumbini, which is in Nepal.”  And also actor and TV presenter and commentator Kabir Bedi Twitter apology appeared, “Yes, my friends, I mis-spoke. Forgive me.

We are in the 21st century, not stone age. This is epoch of internet, WikiLeaks, and Google. These days, even internet media is dominated by social media. Our deeds and words become our identity. Before acting and speaking, we must think. Otherwise minor mistakes could ruin our identity. As neighbours we always need to be close and for that we must respect each other. India faked Lumbini, Indian ambassador even said Mt. Everest is in India, duplicate Indian Pashmina spoiled our International market. Lots of rumours are frequently created by the Indian side on Buddha’s birthplace. They know this is wrong, yet they are doing it. Misinforming intentionally is a big crime. As neighbours we want everybody to respect India as a honest country. For this India must not make fool of the world through unnecessary rumours. Despite lots of apologies due to floods of voices against their wrong information, India is continuously launching Grand TV Shows misinforming Buddha’s birth place. Indian friends, do not make everyday April 1st.
