11 Days Later, Police Say Hunt For BBS Gnanasara Continuing

A cat and mouse game ensued between the police and Bodu Bala Sena’s (BBS) Galagoda Atte Gnanasara who continues to evade his arrest, 11 days since the police deployed units to apprehend him. However, Police Spokesman DIG Priyantha Jayakody assured that the hunt for Gnanasara had not ceased and units were continuing their search to apprehend him.

Meanwhile, police have also questioned the doctor who claimed to have treated Gnanasara and had issued a medical certificate to be produced in court claiming that the monk was suffering from ill health.

Galaboda Atte Gnanasara

“It has become obvious that Ven. Gnanasara admitted himself to a not very prominent medical centre in Navinna on 31st May early morning, in an attempt to avoid being present in court. He had admitted himself at 4.30 am and then soon after the court proceedings were over he had got himself discharged on the same day and disappeared again,” DIG Jayakody told Colombo Telegraph.

According to the police spokesman, the medical certificate issued by the doctor in question was unaccepted as it was a handwritten letter. “Even the medical certificate that was issued is not in formal order, as it is not in a printed form, but just a handwritten letter,” he said. DIG Jayakody also said that the police will lodge a complaint to the Sri Lanka Medical Council against the doctor who had issued the questionable medical certificate through Gnanasara’s lawyers.

With the two week mark nearing since the police said that it had deployed several units to arrest Gnanasara on several charges, including for inciting religious disharmony, when pointed out that the police have been blamed for inaction in this case, DIG Jayakody said that this is not the only case that the police is handling but investigations are very much on and the search for the monk is continuing. “He is in hiding, but we are continuing investigations to apprehend him,” DIG Jayakody added.

The arrest warrant for Gnanasara was issued amidst intensifying pressure from the Muslim community and the diplomatic community on the government and the police which initially was accused of soft peddling the increasing anti-Muslim attacks in the country. In the recent past, Gnanasara has renewed his campaign against the Muslim community and have being seen instigating racial hatred between the Buddhists and Muslims. Since April this year over 20 Muslim owned businesses and mosques located across the country have come under attack, with some being torched by masked men while petrol bombs were thrown at a few others.

      Longer they wait to arrest him, the respect on Police, President, PM andother authorities of this country will turn out to be “worsened”. People would not respect on law and order issues of this country. t
      As promised by them prior to 2015, law and order issues have not been improved.
      So the world authorities, it is you who to decide only lanken stagnated situation.
      Be it Ghanasara or Baduudeen or anyone, that go against the law prevailing should
      be brought to investigations.
      Rigorous enforcement of law and order can change the way wind blows in this country.
      No doubt about that.
      Just to hide behind SIVURU and abuse the sivuru for his own hatreds, and their spread, have been a greater threat to lanken peace and harmony
      We dont wars again, we dont ethnic problems in this country again.
      We need more awareness programs so that grass eating majority folks to be educated.
      Once the information is there, that we are all the same.
      We should all bend down to the law and order, nothing can go wrong.
      Singapore, Germany, and other countries hold their laws above everything else, being equal to everyone.
      So why not srilanka.
      Mr President, please react, longer you hide your tail behind the rear legs, worsen it will become.
      MAY LORD BUDDHAS TEACHING BE BLESSED TO ALL IN ORDER TO GET SHAPED UP THE LIVES OF MAJORITY.

      There are only 2 known crusaders in the world Catholic/Patchwork Christian and the inhuman Muslims. When you see the scene at the protest made at the mosque by Obama backing diplomats and muslims you are to be reminded that they are bringing on a crusade onto Asia. So why is the government pleasing the crusaders when The Donald is not with either of them??

    Chief Inspector of Scotland Yard Jim Softy is hot on Gnanasara’s trail. Please don’t be dismayed, our great sleuth with his good friend from the Interpol Inspector KA Sumanasekera will find this pious holy man and bring him to justice near a courts near you. CIA top agent Soma and RCMP Inspector Max are also standing by for additional help.

    But Police arrested the Yahapalana Flood Victim, who lifted the Sarong and pointed to his Balls and told the visiting Minister, , “This is only what is left now”……when the Minister asked him “How are you doing mate”………………. One of the comments to this news is cool……….Evidently the Flood Victim is now in Personal Police custody of the IGP . The new Finance Minister Development and Special Projects Minster, Police Minister and the Education Minister, are l interrogating him .. And want to hold the victim until their boss Dr Ranil returns…….With the new plumbing in place, Dr Ranil will be doing the toughest interrogation….

    No even yestreday he had added a video containing same aggressive hate speech.

    He has to be put in a rehab in order to heal his aggression, until then not to allow him human association can help us all.

    We have fought a war, not just few years but 30 long years. So we dont want any kind of new ethinic problems – may be Ghanasara and former leader MR has been planning to create a new war, this time with Muslims. Then only extremists of the kind can stay in power.

    Joke!
    As usual, police questions Gnanasara’s medical cert while they pay a blind eye to fake medical certs of villains Namal, GR, and BR likes. Patients miraculously get cured immediately after the court hearings. Sri Lanka is a sick country and need a sick cert and so does the police.

    What bloody nonsense from the police. The Court was told that Gnanasara has been hospitalized. Why cant they go to the hospital. The F…ing President, Duminda Dissanayake, Wijedasa Rajapaksa, Champka Ranawake and the IGP are all providing the safety net for the brute Gnanasara

      Mr Amarasiri, (even if this would not have been a match with the topic)

      could you please come back to my last question, I had added to you ?

      Why the masses back in my home country- rotten by all evils still fall in the theories of “BUDURAES” not being able to get the physical explanation of “Dheedhunna -Rainbow”. They the worshipers to Soomawathiya or other Dagabas see it, as if the BUDU RAS – budhas rays – may have been the reason the sky above the dagabas to appear rain bow colours while the glocken bells or the pirith recites are heard from the background. In the same time, the worshipers, start ” saadu saadu” just following the other… this has been the culture of the masses in this country blessed with lower IQ as 70.

      I wonder why the university dons in Physics have not come forward yet to explain this to the nation. Entire world would laugh at us. I was shocked by having watched ( I just found it in YOU TUBE lately) it.

    Never mind whether it’s 11 days or 1000 days, the fact is there is no reason to arrest Gnanasara thero, he is only warning Sinhalese of ongoing Muslimization of Sri Lanka, remember Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Maldives, etc were once Buddhist countries. So first, ARREST Muslim politicians who are destroying the Buddhist archeological sites in Eastern province, building illegal Muslim settlements in Willpattuawa jungle, threatened the Magistrate and threw stones at the court. Muslim occasional politician who threatened the high profile judge at his official residence must be arrested as well. ————————————————————————————————————————————————— The latest news is that Qatar has been accused of supporting terrorism by other Muslim countries. Muslim politicians and Muslim organizations in Sri Lanka get million of dollars for Muslimization of Sri Lanka from Qatar, also, Qatar practice modern day slavery, but they are shedding crocodile tears over Muslims in Sri Lanka who are under Sinhalese’ excellent care.

    We are not alone. According to government data, 462 far-right extremists with warrants out for their arrest are still at large in Germany. According to the data, nearly 600 arrest warrants for the 462 extremists have not been carried out to date. (Source: https://www.rt.com/news/391015-nazi-extremists-germany-fugitive/). Muslim politicians and Wahhabis cannot sleep peacefully until Gnanasara is put behind bars because he has become the main obstacle to their nefarious activities. Buddhist monks taking a lead when the community faced with threats is not uncommon. During British rule they played a role and monks went in front of the firing squad. Now Sinhala Buddhists are confronting threats from Evangelical Christians funded by Church, Wahhabi Muslims funded by Saudi Arabia and Hinduthwa Tamils funded by Tamil Diaspora. Monks play the game openly. Clergy in other religions play the game behind the scene. That is the difference.

    I respect Buddhism , and majority of Buddhists are peaceful people who blend with all communities.
    But not the one above in the picture orangutan looking Gnanasra ,he is a disgrace for the entire Buddhist community. This vulture goes against the teachings of Buddha.
    Emotions dominate his soul with thuggery ,greed ,hatred and lust.karma will take on him soon.

    Is that so? The Police is pressed by Muslims and the DPL Community to arrest Gnanasara Thero? Why can’t the Police investigate into attacks? How come there are no CCTV footage? How about Tamil and Muslim Politicians who made hate speeches against Sinhalese? Did Police arrest those who commemorated banned LTTE in Jaffna? What did Police do with Muslim politicians who were involved in deforestation in the East? Alright Sinhalese Buddhists. This Government is bias. It only wants to hunt Buddhist Monks. We denounce violence and terror. If anybody is spreading hate crimes on Social Media intentional or unintentional, please stop that forthwith.—— Let’s be united to show our strength. Let’s begin a peaceful campaign to show our protest against the arrest of Buddhist Monks selectively, while real culprits are scot free. We will do something simple like boycotting Muslim Shops. Let’s buy things only from Sinhalese shops. How about that. I am not against Muslims, not at all. This is only to support our own Sinhalese businesses.

      Yes, this is the way to do it. No need to attack Muslim shops. Just boycott them. If they don’t make a profit, they will shut down. Very simple.

    Amusing to see the man playing hide and seek. DIG Priyantha Jayakody assures us that the fugitive will be apprehended. Priyantha questions the validity of a medical certificate because it was hand-written. Is there a law which says that such a certificate must be written in a printed form? Priyantha has complained to GMOA. What does he expect? It is getting curioser and curioser. One wonders as to who is pulling the puppet strings.

    While our worthy Police continue to express their grim determination to apprehend Rev Gnanasara, the Muslim Community should use the breathing space to examine objectively and critically the reasons that have lead to the deterioration of relations between them and the Majority Community during the past decades. ++++++++++++
    This decline which commenced about 3-4 decades ago was gradual until 2009 because it was masked by the violence unleashed by Tamil Terrorism which affected all communities. However, after May 2009, with the cessation of terrorism, the adverse effects of this decline were being felt more sharply and resulted in the emergence of anti-Muslim groups. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    In Psychology, the Fundamental Attribution Error (FAE) is defined as ‘our tendency to explain someone’s behavior based on internal factors, such as personality or disposition, and to underestimate the influence that external factors, such as situational influences, have on another person’s behavior.’ ++++++++++++++++++++++
    The Muslim Community should not discount the possibility that they have, by virtue of their visibly increasing piety during the last 3-4 decades, contributed to the creation of such ‘situational influences’. Or else they would be guilty of succumbing to the FAE.

    The Gnanasa episode is not the only issue that is confronting the Muslims in Sri Lanka. Further, Gnanasara is not the only person, who is evading with some degree of success an arrest warrant. What is significant is that even some senior Muslim Ministers are silent over the activitiesof Gnanasara.

    All in all the effort on the part of the authorities to bring about amity within the community of Sri Lankans have failed. If this aspect is water-tight, say like in Singapore, then Gnanasara’s likes have no place in society. Alas! Sri Lanka is a part of the Global Village.

    If the Police want to arrest anyone they have the professionalism and expertise to do it v.fast. The questions are: 1. why are they dragging their feet here? 2. how/why did the judge/magistrate accept such a medical certificate? 3. Was not the judge/magistrate aware that the Police were also searching for him? 4. Should VG be charged again for contempt of court – considering the the MC and that he discharged himself the same day? 5. What about the lawyer – can she be considered an accomplice? 6. Proof again that there are Doctors who assist people to break the law and avoid arrest? 7. What is the GMOA’s stance here?

    Gnanasara has said like a Chandia that he is not scared of Police,President,Prime Minister or anybody. One thing he is right, that is he does not have to be scared of President or Prime Minister because they are public representatives. But he has to be scared Police because he has violated the law of the country several times and on top of that he was evading court. Now Chandia,come out from the hide out and walk to the police or court house like a donkey. You have been a Card Boad Veeraya in front of some Thuttu Deke People. Are they coming to protect you now. Don’t be a dumb idiot.
