Buddhism and fish killing communities


Can Buddhism and Hinduism be valued among fish killing communities?

Theravada Buddhism is the religion of about 70% of the population of Sri Lanka.

Since Sri Lanka is an island in the Indian ocean, fishermen villages make a living in the coastal areas.

Christianity is the popular religion among (both Sinhala & Tamil speaking) fishermen communities.

Historical European invasions and non-violence influenced by Buddhism & Hinduism may have caused them to justify their way of living by attracting to Christianity (if killing animals/fish is encouraged in Bible through personal interpretation).

Irrespective of religion as a social factor, the core of Buddhism and Hinduism are for the wise.

Can wise people of fish killing communities value wisdom?
