In a hate-fuelled attack, a 66-year-old Buddhist monk was assaulted in the US with the attacker apparently mistaking him for a Muslim.

A Buddhist monk named Kozen Sampson had been attacked during a visit to Hood River in Oregon State.

The Buddhist Monk’s car door was kicked into his head by the attacker and then fled on foot, according to the Hood River Police Department

But instead of anger and hatred towards that man, Sampson said he only feels forgiveness and compassion.

“I don’t know the Islamic faith well, but I do know that Muslims are our brothers and sisters and I would encourage everyone to just take a hard look at how supportive are you of all God’s children,” foreign media quoted the monk.
