A campaign by "Knowing Buddha"

There is a news in Thai local media that "Knowing Buddha" group will organize a campaign to rally for appropriate treatment of Buddha images and his names on June 30th.

Buddhists have been upset, although usually kept quiet, about non-Buddhists naming of bars, restaurants, merchandises, pets, etc. after Buddha, considering that as highly disrespect. Uses of his images or sculptures as mere decorative objects in various places rather than in a place of worship, are also considered unacceptable.
