Sri-Lanka, a buddhist country where Saudi Arabia has invested tons in Mosqes around the country.

This is blowback. (Not saying its acceptable in any way or form, its just quite predictable sadly)

Unintended consequenses of their action.

then this doesn't give excuse or give cause to the actions of the singhalese.

i want to talk about how the media-miltiary-complex and far-right-nationalist attitudes of the singhala majority are the cause, and that the singhalese have a terrible history of violence and repression of minorities in the country, but I haven't been sucsessful in writing that in a coherent, non-problematic way. so instead, those are my thoughts, and hopefully i will be able to construct a better argument later that isnt composed of just my internal thoughts on the situation.
