Would the Buddha approve?


Australia’s law-and-order loving politicians and police have a way to go yet to catch up with their Thailand peers. The Thai deputy national police chief Jongrak Juthanond this week threatened drastic action against thieves who steal religious artefacts from temples in Ayutthaya.
Over the past fortnight, several temples in Ayutthaya reported artifact thefts and the beheading of Buddha images, prompting Chief Juthanond to war: “The use of violence may be required. The sight of thieves lying dead next to the beheaded heads of Buddha images could be possible.”
