Islamic Mob Smashes Buddhas

An Islamic mob has smashed historic statutes of Buddha in the National Museum of the Maldives apparently because they saw them as idolatrous. See

This should again give pause to those who reflexively believe that all artifacts should be returned to their country of origin.
