Buddhist Guru's "Suicide" Now Murder
File under: Final Samadhi
After two days-worth of monk rioting, police in Mumbai have finally given in and refiled in the case of the "suicide" of Buddhist monk and spiritual guru Bhanta Mahathero. Now it is alleged he was murdered:
Supporters say that the spiritual guru was murdered since he was opposing a slum rehabilitation project on a land that was meant for a Buddhist shrine.We have to agree that it seems uncharacteristic for a seemingly non-wackadoo guru to off themselves. Conversely, it makes perfect sense that he'd be removed for hindering somebody's profit principle. Truth, as ubiquitous as it is, is sometimes no match for good old fashioned human greed.
Bruises found on the monk's body has strengthened their suspicion that foul play was involved.
“How is it possible that a [spiritual leader] who has devoted his life to others would commit suicide at this point?” questioned Bhadanth Mahathero, a Buddhist monk.
