Buddhism and Violence

Dear All,

I am posting this link for a very good reading material. This could be a wonderful essay reference, and also a potential ISR. I'd love to share this so that one may get inspiration from very respectable academics.

Here is a recent article on the situation in Myanmar.

The paper is entitled "Contesting Buddhist Narrative" and has a stated aim of providing a "sociohistorical account of the current interreligious tensions in Myanmar," an analysis of "what lies 'behind'" the current narratives of groups like the 969 Movement and MaBaTha, followed by "counterarguments within a Theravada framework."
