It has been the traditional norm of few Indians to claim that Buddha was born in India. This new piece of news is a propaganda to create hype in the media. Some of the Indians envy the rich tradition of Nepal. They cannot see tourists flying to Kathmandu. They cannot accept Nepal glorifying the tradition of Buddha.
Subhas Chandra Pattanayak has made another news with the same old stories which desperately sought to place the birthplace of Buddha in India. His opening sentences simple mock the whole world which believes that Gautam Buddha was born in Kapilvastu, Nepal.
But due to Brahminical conspiracy, the world is so misguided that the birth place of Buddha has wrongly been taken to be in the Tarai region of Nepal. And, therefore the real Kapilavastu known presently as Kapileswara near Bhubaneswar in Orissa (India) is seldom visited by the present generation Buddhists.
How on earth can he think about conspiracy? Who cared about the importance of the birthplace of Buddha at the time when we started to believe that he was born in Nepal? Now that the birthplace is of historical, cultural and economic significance, they are dying to confuse the people with false information.
The world believes Buddha was born in Kapilvastu, Nepal. However, these stupid bunch of people who are trying to make it to the news are involving themselves into various lame accusations in a desperate move to save their baseless ideas. Subhas writes again:
Cunningham, in his “Ancient Geography of India”, has strongly argued that Rumindei from where the Tarai inscription was allegedly discovered, is neither related to the name ‘Kapilavastu’ nor ‘Kapila’ even as noted historian Dr.Smith emphasizes that the place was never known as Rumindei. According to him, it was a forged name given to the place by archaeologist Fuhrer.
All these accusations are inspired by a sick mentality. These people do not have sufficient evidence and they are trying to confuse and confound the Buddhists. Failures to provide with evidences are supplemented by false accusations to make the points. So, we have to cast doubts on every ideas put forth by these fake historians including Dr.Smith. Then, there is another so-called historian claiming to have found the real birthplace of Buddha. Subhas further continues his stupidity:
The Hindustan Times wrote on 18.6.1970 that Mohapatra has “concluded” after many years of research that “Buddha’s birthplace was not, as is generally accepted, in the Tarai region of Nepal, but at Kapileswara village near Bhubaneswar.”
But, what credibility does Mohapatra have to claim that Bhubaneswar in India is the birthplace of Buddha? Moreover, we know Hindustan Times is a piece of junk.
Hence, however hard these fake historians try, the reality will persist. Buddha was born in Kapilvastu as evidenced from the pillar found nearby. There are many more archeaological evidences which prove that Buddha was born in Nepal. These people should learn to read history and appreciate the findings of excavations rather than accuse everything as being false. Poor findings supported by illogical arguments does not earn Buddha’s birthplace. Nice try Subhas!!!
