    “…after killing Tibet’s non-Buddhist king…”

    This is the nearest you get to mentioning Bön, the pre-Buddhist indigenous religion of Tibet, which suffered centuries of oppression under Buddhism following that assassination.

    Bön still exists. Its members (Bonpos) still exist.

    But here (as usual) Buddhism is the only religion mentioned as the victim of persecution in Tibet, while Bön falls into the nameless “non-Buddhist” category.
