If the Mullah were a Bodhisattva he would have allowed the restoration of the statues as the work would have brought money and employment to the people of Bamiyan.
Even better he could have invited a Buddhist community to build a monastery or school in the shadow of these statues, who knows what prosperity this would have brought.
It may have even come close to the greatness that the Bamiyan valley knew when it was under Buddhist rule.
Next time I'm looking for help with "Right View" I'll try to find someone who has compassion for all beings. The Mullah's dharma is no Dharma.
