Buddhism was the largest religion in ancient India but some crook and heinous so called intellectuals naming them as superior class as Brahmans implemented idiotic Manusmriti dishonestly to destroy Buddhism in India. Major Buddhist followers suppressed as Shudras and declined right to good life, liberty, education, equality, fair justice, dignity, properties etc. for long decades by Brahmins. It means crook Brahmins are the internal गद्दार (gaddar) = BACK STABBERS or quisling Indian race those are back stabbers inside the country and even dangerous than Islamic terrorists. The dishonest and disloyal Brahmin Pushyamitra Shunga was the first Back stabber to Ashoka’s empire. He had dishonestly captured the Mauryan empire and established Bramhanic empire. It shows the founder of Brahminic empire had pooped in the pan he had fed by Mauryans. Its an act of lomdi (Jackal) i.e. Dhurt (crook) in the animal kingdom. Ashoka as an Atishudra king worked as a Lion so his emblem was always lion. He had adopted and promoted to Buddhism as great humanist. All Vedic promoter Acharyas like Adi Shankara, Ramanuja, Madhabacharya, Dayananda Saraswati, Raja Ram Mohan Roy, Jayendra Saraswathi, Śaṅkarācārya of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham, Jagadguru of Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Swāmī Abhinava Vidyā Tīrtha, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Bhāratī Tīrtha, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Bhāratīkṛṣṇa Tīrtha, first Śaṅkarācārya to visit the West, Swāmī Brahmānanda Sarasvatī, Śrīvidyā siddha; Śaṅkarācārya of Jyotirmāyā Pīṭha, Śaṅkara Matha, Badrināth, Swāmī Candrasekhara Bhāratī, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Saccidānanda Bhāratī, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Saccidānanda Bhāratī, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Saccidānanda Śivābhinava Nṛsiṁha Bhāratī, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri, Swāmī Vidyāraṇya Tīrtha, Śaṅkarācārya of Śṛṅgeri are the crooks those destroyed the original popular Buddhist cultural of India. Now the Vedic Manuvadi orthodox group RSS with its wing ABVP and political Party BJP destroying the rest of Buddhism and trying to implement again Bramhanism in democratic Nation. Indian government did not even shout when Taliban destroyed Buddha statue in Afghanistan. Indian government is still dominated by Brahmins and Vedic supporters and promoters. Till the Vedic promoters and supporters dominate Indian democracy, it will far away from real development like America, China, Russia and Japan.
Other take interest those had adopted Buddhism from India.
