Jackson Anthony's Remarks

In a recent function Jackson Anthony remarked that the present head of State is a descendant of King Suddodana ,Buddhas father. Jackson Anthony being a Christian should have used better discretion in making a statement about a Holy figure in somebody else's religion.If he made a comment like Hon .Minister of Justice is a descendant of Prophet Mohamad ,the outcome would have been different.Buddhists and Hindus are non violent and tolerant.
I do not expect Buddhist clergy to comment about the Statements.But the silence of Buddhist clergy who comment about about even things like pesticides is deafening.
