Chris Demuth Advocates “Buddha was born in Nepal”
Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 15, 2013
Chris Demuth talks about Fareed Zakaria’s book The Post-American World where Zakaria is giving absolutely wrong information on Buddha’s birthplace and Mr Demuth advocates not buying the book as it does lie. He was surprised with India’s claim that Buddha was born in India. Mr Demuth also suggests signing the petition to advocate Buddha was born in Nepal and not in India.
Fareed Rafiq Zakaria is an Indian-American journalist and author. From 2000 to 2010, he was a columnist for Newsweek and editor of Newsweek International. In 2010 he became editor-at-large of Time. He is the host of CNN‘s Fareed Zakaria GPS. He is also a frequent commentator and author about issues related to international relations, trade, and American foreign policy.
Zakaria is the author of few books including The Post-American World. His last two books have both been New York Times bestsellers, and have been translated into over 25 languages.
Fareed Zakaria opened up about his plagiarism scandal in an interview with the New York Times. He got into severe trouble after he was found to have lifted a paragraph from a recent New Yorker article for a column in Time. He was suspended from that magazine and from CNN.
Fareed Zakaria is damaging his own reputation by himself giving the world this kind of wrong information about globally respected peace messenger’s birthplace and hurting to about 500 million Buddhists. Lots of people wrote him, left comments in his own Facebook page discussion board started by Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement, but neither he apologised nor expressed his commitment to correct in the next edition.
