Protecting Iran from the Buddhists


I see that Iran has officially banned the sale and, presumably, ownership of Buddha statues.

People of the Book and Zoroastrians have some sort of official protection, but not Buddhists. And, even though, I gather from the news stories, these statues are mostly purchased as decorative items, they are no longer to be tolerated.

Someone might become a Buddhist, I suspect they suspect.

And heaven forfend…

Or, at least the religious authorities will…

I understand. They have to be careful, or people might notice there are all sorts of ways to wisdom.

And who knows what would happen if people figure that out…
