---------Kalki Purana chapter 10 text 30

Meaning:

Recently, You appeared as Lord Kalki in order to eliminate the dynasty of Kali by destroying the Buddhists, atheists, and mlecchas,thereby protecting the true path of religion What more can we say about Your causeless mercy

    Yes, I've read Kalki Puran. He wipes out Buddhists, the Puran seems highly interpolated. It seems to have been written when India was on the verse to become Buddhist country. Before Gautam Buddha none was aware of the existence/formation of new religion - Buddhism. – Mr. Sigma. May 8 '17 at 12:05

    @ Rohit Why this Verse is in past tense.(assuming Kalki will born in future) – user9554 May 8 '17 at 12:47

    Hindus do not believe that Kalki avatar is born. Only some say that Kalki avatar is born in mecca and muhammad is the Kalki avatar. Many believe that many verses in Kalki purana are interpolated. – Sarvabhouma May 8 '17 at 13:56
  • @Ajay it is in past tense because it is fixed. – Mr. Sigma. May 8 '17 at 17:04

    The correct term is Vadha not murder! Murder is crime while Vadha is something like killing of Evildoers like Ravana, Narakasura etc. – Yogi May 8 '17 at 18:05

The answer of your question -Is Kalki Avatara a murderer of Buddhists is No according to Shreemad Bhagvat Purana. Skandha 2 Chapter 7 : SB 2.7 : Scheduled Incarnations with Specific Functions and Skandha 12 chapter 2 : SB 12.2 : The Symptoms of Kali-yuga.

It says -:

यहर्यालयेष्वपि सतां न हरे: कथा: स्यु:
पाखण्डिनो द्विजजना वृषला नृदेवा ।
स्वाध्या स्वधा वषडिति स्म गिरो न यत्र
शास्ता भविष्यति कलेर्भगवान युगांते ॥38॥

yarhy ālayeṣv api satāṁ na hareḥ kathāḥ syuḥ
pāṣaṇḍino dvija-janā vṛṣalā nṛdevāḥ
svāhā svadhā vaṣaḍ iti sma giro na yatra
śāstā bhaviṣyati kaler bhagavān yugānte

Thereafter, at the end of Kali-yuga, when there exist no topics on the subject of God, even at the residences of so-called saints and respectable gentlemen of the three higher castes, and when the power of government is transferred to the hands of ministers elected from the lowborn śūdra class or those less than them, and when nothing is known of the techniques of sacrifice, even by word, at that time the Lord will appear as the supreme chastiser. SB 2.7.38


विचरन्नाशुना क्षोणयां हयेना प्रतिमद्यूति:।
नृपलिङ्गछ्चदो दस्युन कोटिशो निहनिष्यति॥20॥

vicarann āśunā kṣauṇyāṁ hayenāpratima-dyutiḥ
nṛpa-liṅga-cchado dasyūn koṭiśo nihaniṣyati

Godhead. Displaying His unequaled effulgence and riding with great speed, He will kill by the millions those thieves who have dared dress as kings. SB 12.2.20


Now if we look at the verse no.38 and verse 20 we can see the exact purpose ok Kalki-Avatara , In Kali-Yuga When there will no Katha-Kirtana will get performed even at the homes of most spiritual oriented people , Brahmana , Kshatriya's and Vaishya's will became atheist (nastika) ,Shudras will became kings ,and there will no sound heard of Swaha ,Swadha and Vashtkara ,at that time Lord will take Kalki avatara to punish Kali-Yuga and those thives who have falsely dressd as kings.

The Kalki will punish Kali-Yuga and demons and nor the buddhist people , it doesn't saying anything about murdering of Buddhists. Buddha is considered a Avatara of Lord Vishnu here.

we can see that the lord himself will assume dress of buddha and will preach false dharma , when Danavas by using knowledge of vedas and becoming invisible reciding in City of Maya Danava ,will cause destruction of the people.

So according to me the answer will be simply No.

    @Ajay "Thieves dressed as kings" it means who are not fit for the king's role. He will destroy evil rulers just like he did in the incarnation of Parashu Rama. – Sarvabhouma May 8 '17 at 13:53

    Those Bhagavatam verses don't contradict the Kalki Purana verse mentioned in the question. Those corrupted kings could well be Buddhists. – Keshav Srinivasan May 8 '17 at 14:14
  • Yes that could also be possible , but as we can see the verse 38 also saying that the Brahmanas , Khashtriyas ,Vaishyas will became like sudras.So may be the those kings will be among these three who have became Shudras. – SwiftPushkar May 8 '17 at 14:21
  • And I think there is some difference between Buddhist Nastika (pure atheist) and the people of three varnas who became nastika by not following Dharma ,but not necessarily non-believers of vedas or god but simply became Sudras alike. – SwiftPushkar May 8 '17 at 14:24
