For instance, previously in Northern Ireland, although the conflict was basically a political issue, it quickly became a religious issue. This was very unfortunate. Today, followers of Shia and Sunni are also sometimes fighting each other. This too is very unfortunate.

It forgets that unlike Hinduism, which in a sense has been an ethnic religion, Buddhism was a universal doctrine ...
