There were two Asokas in India. One was Black Asoka (Kalasoka) who was good and convened the Second Buddhist Council. The other one was world famous Indian emperor Dharma Asoka who was full of Adharma in his early life. Mysteries in Indian history are not solved yet. Nobody knew who the Black Asoka was! Nobody knew that the famous Asoka killed all his 99 brothers and cousins born to different mothers. Mahavamsa never mentioned the Kalinga War!!

Mahavamsa, the chronicle of Sri Lanka is full of murders and mayhem. It painted a gloomy picture of early Indian kings. Mahavamsa says that Dharma Asoka killed all his 99 brothers!

There is lot of confusion in Buddhist, Jain and Hindu versions of Indian history. “scholars” from foreign countries did not accept Hindu History narrated in the Puranas. If they had accepted it, it would have contradicted the story told by the Christians that the world was created in October, 4004 BCE. Moreover they were afraid of ex communication from the church or blinding or execution like Galileo and Copernicus. Millions of women including the most famous Joan of Arc were burnt alive for worshipping pagan gods or following pagan beliefs. The women were dubbed as witches.

But foreigners accepted the Buddhist history because they thought Buddhism as a rebellion against Vedic Hindus, which is not true. One must read the Introduction to Dhammapada by philosopher Dr Radhakrishnan. Buddhist and Jain versions were also as confusing as Hindu Puranas. But the “scholars” compromised with the dates and rejected Kalasoka and other conflicting matters. About Jains they were least bothered. Since they were not in any other country except India at that time, they did not matter to them. Moreover they couldn’t digest the strict non violence and vegetarianism of the Jains. All the foreign “scholars” were beef eaters and (whisky) drinkers. This and their belief in the Biblical date of World creation greatly influenced their angled, biased, crooked, distorted, jaundiced, one sided and perverted thinking and dating.
Mahavamsa gives us a long list of murders, yet to be confirmed by a secondary source in history. Following is the list of murders and mayhem:

Murder mysteries in Mahavamsa:

Mahavamsa Chapter-4:
Bimbisara’s son Ajatasatru slew (killed) his father.

Mahavamsa Chapter-4:
Ajatasatru’s son Udayabhaddaka slew his father.
Udayabhaddaka’s son Aniruddha slew his father
Aniruddha’s son Munda slew his father
Munda’s son Nagadasaka slew his father
People became angry about these patricides and banished Nagadasaka and appointed Sisunaga as the king.
His son Kalasoka ruled for 28 years.
Who is this Kalasoka who ruled for 28 long years?
No mention about this king Indian history books written 150 years ago by the British, still studied by the stupid Indians!!!

Mahavamsa Chapter-5:
Asoka, son of Bindusara, slew 99 brothers born of different mothers and won the sovereignty of Jambudvipa (India).
No mention of the Kalinga War which made Asoka to convert to Buddhism!!

Mahavamsa Chapter-7:

Mahavamsa Chapter-36:
Three Lambakarnas killed king Vijayan and one of them,Samghatissa ruled for 4 years.
He was killed by poisoned fruits. People who hated him mixed the poison.
King Jethatissa killed all the treacherous ministers in his father’s funeral procession. He was behind the procession allowing his brother to take the body out of the gate of the palace. As soon as the body passed the gate, he ordered the gate to be closed and killed all the ministers and impaled their bodies around his father’s pyre.

Mahavamsa Chapter-37:
The last chapter of Mahavamsa ended with the killing of a thera. One of the wives of Mahasena was sad about the destruction of a Mahavihara. He asked one labourer to finish off the thera. Samghamitra and a lawless minister Sona were killed while they were coming to destroy Thuparama.

Mahavamsa, has lot of murders and killings from the beginning to the end apart from the lawful killings in the battles. I have not included the war deaths because they are considered lawful from the ancient days till today.
