In recent years, Muslim minority communities in Buddhist majority states have experienced an increasing number of attacks on their lives and properties. Violence against Muslim minorities has taken place in the wake of intense anti-Muslim campaigns, most vociferously articulated by certain groups of Buddhist monks, who in sermons and public speeches have warned against the dangers of Islam. Such aggressive and militant anti-Muslim campaigns are based upon the idea of a global Islamic conspiracy to eradicate Buddhism. This chapter analyses various aspects of Asian Buddhists’ fear of Islam: how do Buddhist conspiracy theories envision the Islamic take-over, and how are individual Muslims seen as local agents of such larger schemes? And why do Buddhist conspiracy theories about Islam flourish from 2012 onwards, and how are they related to domestic and regional politics?
