MAKKAH: The Muslim World League (MWL) is hosting a conference in Makkah on Sept. 16 and 17 to discuss the effects new media is having on the lives of young Muslims across the globe.
“There should be lawmakers in parliament who are reliable for the country,” Ashin Tilawkar Biwonsa said in an interview. ”There might be some people, especially Muslims, who are working on weakening Buddhism, so we need strong people for our religion.”
Buddhism teaches the path of dhamma, but money is a necessity in this world we live in. Can money be used as an instrument in a positive manner instead of controlling us? Is money truly the source of happiness and peace?
Islam dominates in Bangladesh, with Muslims comprising about 90 percent of the country’s 160 million people. Hindus represent about 8 percent, while Christians and Buddhists represent only a small percentage of the population.
