Indonesia: Protest against Buddha Bar

Some Indonesian Buddhists are not happy over a bar in Jakarta which is known as the Buddha Bar. They believe the name of the pub insults Buddhism.

    I don’t blame the Indonesian Buddhist.
    It’s probably not a big deal in other countries who have the franchise, but not for the Buddhist in Indonesia. It uses Buddhist icons, so they have right to say NO.
    Stupid Indonesian government … what a lousy excuse. discrimination … if it has something to do with Islam, they MUST have been closing the bar. They should do the same thing for the Buddhist.
