Justice Bao Gong: Protest Against Buddha Bar

A couple of hundred Buddhist students held a peaceful protest outside an outlet of the international franchise Buddha Bar in Jakarta, Indonesia, as it has sacrilegiously used Buddha's name beside the word 'bar', which is a word associated with alcohol, and avoiding alcohol is the Fifth Holy Precept of Buddhism. Some of the students held up banners showing "Strip off Buddhist symbols from Buddha Bar" and called for the bar to be shut.


Budhha Bar has every right to carry on operations, but they should NOT display BUDDHIST SYMBOLS and they should NOT USE THE WORD 'BUDDHA' in their brand name.
