30 Year Old Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil Completely Demolished Last Night

Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil has been completely demolished last night raises question about the safety of Badhra kaali amman temples in the southern Sri Lanka, says Dr.N Kumar Guruparan,Western Provincial Councillor and the Deputy Leader of Democratic Peoples’ Front and Spokesman for the Hindu Front.

Issuing a statement he says; “It’s with deep shock & sorrow I record here that the Dambulla Badhrakaali Amman Kovil (Temple) has been demolished yesterday  razed to the grounds ,which raises question about the safety of Bathra kaali amman temples in the southern Sri Lanka. I was shocked to hear when my good friend Hon Parliamentarian R .Yogarajan conveyed the sad news.We both in our own individual  capacity appealed to His Excellency the President Mahinda Rajapaksa him to act immediately to stop a 30 year old kovil in Dambulla being shifted.

We both in our individual capacity  appealed to His Excellency for the safety of this temple right from the beginning  of a buddhists’ chauvnistic  group started attack on this temple and moors mosque in the city of Dambulle, Dr.N Kumar Guruparan said.

He said; “It’s only a couple of days back I appealed to the President,through English media and Hon Yogarajan took up this matter to the notice of the Preident ‘that President need to take steps to safeguard the Badhrakaali Amman Kovil  in Dambulla. If things are going out of hands in spite of our appeal are we to find alternatives to appeal and bring pressure hence bring this to the notice of the High Commission of India now after the complete demolition by the civvies forces.

Unfortunate is that according to the trustee ‘Lechhumi ammah’ it was government forces went along in civvies with the well known Buddhist monk requested them to remove the temple from the historically in habited tamil area imediately  if not to face the consequences but trustees requested time till Wednesday for the religious rites to take place to close down the temple. without waiting they have demolished.Now fores have embarked on building  a fountain ammah’s relation told  me  in the evening now; Satue the deity is lying in  the trustees residence. There is a group of Buddhist fundamentalists eager to change the history of tamils and Hindus’ and Muslims’ in Dambulla to bring down the  prominent life pan of history demolishing the temple and Mosque in prominent palace.This issue and deliberate attack on Badrakaali amman temple  is still continuing, the deity’s statue was smashed and thrown in to the well not even a month back. Guruparan said the trident in the premises had been used to remove the roofing.”

    The Badrakaliamman is said to be a powerful deity in the Hindu mythology. If that is so, there cannot be a better moment than the present for the powerful deity to demonstrate her will on those who destroyed her dwelling in Dambulla!
    Let’s give her time to do it!

    Savage mythical Hindu blood thirsty God which is feared even by Buddhists. Pathetic. Screw Kali Amman but that does not mean a Kovil should be razed.. But 30 years is not old it is probably some illegal immigrant or some street jockey who created a temple there for the backward Estate Indian Tamils to go cut chicken heads and goat heads to appease a blood thirsty Diety. Buddhism and Buddhists should not Dieties to fear. WE should only fear ourselves and our actions. So this act is in poor taste. Kali Badra can go fly a kite in this superstitious backward S.Asia.

      Look at the pretentious racist in you; you might think you are superior,but as far as I am concerned, your comment is in poor taste!

      A absence of basic values and a decent upbringing is reflected in your crass response with a total lack of sympathy for you fellow human beings.

    For the information of all people here, I wish to inform you that BBS had no direct or indirect connection with the demolition of this temple.

    There are forces at play that are a cause for concern. Just take a moment to think for yourselves before you start pointing fingers. On the eve of CHOGM, who stands to gain most with this kind of negative publicity. I am not blaming any particular person, group or political party, but try and work out for yourself. Why now. Why not before?

      BBS,

      Moderate Buddhists were not involved according to you. Therefore this is the work of extremists, right? Good. If that is the case, here’s the mind blowing question. Which is the extremist group that spearhead the attack?

      If we go by public utterances of the BBS who believe in extremism to protect Buddhism, as we have seen in the past.this action could not have happened without the active support of the BBS.

      If the BBS is moderate, how is it that the Monks representing the BBS were involved in threatening to destroy both the Mosque and Kovil sometime back?

      Of course you will hide your head in the sand and say deny involvement.

      What BBS and others have shown us is extreme paranoia, with demons in every shadow, led by a bunch of naive pliable fanatical fools following directions from corrupt and power hungry politicians . These fools will act irrespective of consequence!

      CHOGM or no CHOGM, BBS rep must be happily boasting another victory not knowing that the joke is on Sinhala Buddhists, moderate and extremist.

        Hello Sin Hela,

        You make a valid point. However that is where it ends.

        Sometimes organisations however well meaning they may be are hijacked by a vocal few with a different agenda. BBS is no different and has been a victim of such groupings within groupings. So if you hear extreme views expressed whether by a monk or laymen purporting to be members of BBS, please do not assume that their view is endorsed by BBS proper.

        I agree with you, there were some ugly incidences before, such as you enumerate.

        At BBS we have been good at voicing Lord Buddha’s message but have not been all that successful in reigning in those who give into mob mentality. Our struggle is two folds. One is to get the message of Lord Buddha to the people and the second to reign in the mobs within. Sometimes we fail in both. That is a failing we are trying hard to address.

        Contrary to your view Sin Hela we are not boasting of another victory over the demolition of the Badrakali Amman temple. These temples of ignorance are a hindrance to us but not an obstacle to spreading Buddha’s message.

      Sinhalese should learn their history and accept the truth pragmatically. They are having the blood of Portuguese and indigenous people. Notice their names: Fonseka, Perera, De Silva, Fernando, etc. Carefully see their full names that have don and dona, which are Spanish Christian naming culture. Their religion came from India in some 1000 years back, my be it is too recent than that. They got their language brushed up when Buddhism was introduced with pali, so they incorporated Pali words (Pali has great similarity with Sanskrit), and words from other south Indian regions. I strongly believe their blood was mixed up with Kannada people, so they have Kannada scribble. Their culture was extracted and modified from Kerala. Portuguese, Kerala, Kannada, Tamil and Bengal bloods have smothered these fundamentals. I have found who these people are but radical Sinhalese have lost themselves in fake history told by their cocoon head monks.Don’t think the history of Buddhism is your history, don’t think the Brahmi letters are Sinhalese, and forget about your Sanskrit origin. If you want to extend your history with all those aspects… you are not the first to claim.

    Time has come during the Commonwealth Conference for all Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims irrespective of their religions and who oppose the present actions of religious persecution in Sri Lanka to rise up and protest openly and bring out to the entire world what is happening in Sri Lanka. Lets see when this happens what the Government can do, can they shoot when foreign heads of states are in Sri Lanka like what they did in Weliweriya?

    I suppose it is time to get rid of all Hindu kovils in the temples including those In the Plonnaruwa era! What about all the BBS and other Buddhists who routinely go to Kataragama? Visit all the BBS temples to see whether there are devalas there for god Vishnu and Kataragama?? The Kandy perehera will have to be modified removing the different pageants by the Hindu kovils. These so called Buddhists will be cursed if there were gods! Unfortunately in Buddhism one cannot curse people! We the Sinhala Buddhists are ashamed by what these bastards are doing! They will reach hell long before they are dead! Again there is no hell in Buddhism and they dont have to be reborn as something like mice or cockroaches to suffer, they will suffer in this birth!!!
    How can we achieve peace through these processes? I am sure the demolition squads would have looted any gold etc that was there!
    Like the idiotic thinking that Buddha was a Sinhalese? These guys believe Gods too are Sinhalese as long as they are there to curse others or get favours done and as long as the kovils are controlled by sinhala Buddhists!!!

    Buddhists know exactly when True buddhism disappears from this earth.

    I think, at that time WAHABISM will be the only religion.

    Because, people will be like animals.

    Christianity will extinct far earlier than the buddhism.

    Anyway, JESUS had studied buddhism in MAHA BHARATH.

    Dear all,
    Ben said ‘Buddhist fundamentalists are starting to prove themselvs beyond any doubt.They are not really any better than their Islamic, Christian, Jewish or Hindu cousins of religious fanaticism.’ I agree.

    Any one else here who is calling ‘Racist Sinhala Buddhists, Sinhala government, Sinhala nation’ are also fundamentalists in the sense that they have prejudged every Sinhalese before they meet that person. Prejudices and Stereotypes are the first signs of being a Racist. Yes, you guys are racist.

    We Sri Lankans all agree that demolishing any religious building is a despicable act and those individuals responsible for that will receive their ‘karma’/’poetic justice’. Kali is a scary Goddess and no sane Sinhala Buddhist will think about receiving her revenge especially since most Sinhalese Buddhists visit Hindu Deity like the Kataragama God.

    You all know that every Buddhist temple has two Hindu kovils on the side and that the Buddhists also worship Hindu Gods.

    If this would have happened in the USA with a Christian fundamentalist killing some people, do the whole world label the White Christians of that country as fundamentalists etc? I do not think so. There are always Sri Lankan bashers and to those the word ‘Sri Lanka’ is ‘Sinhalese Buddhists’. And those people have a problem with the ‘identity of Sri Lanka’. Sorry folks, we have a multi cultural, multi religious country and in day to day life we do not have issues with our neighbour.

    Let’s keep it that way and stop throwing mud at ‘Sri Lankans’. And concentrate on what the best of humanity can offer as James says.

    I am anxiously waiting for the day they the BBS etc get rid of the Vishnu Devala, Katharagama Devala, The Pattini Devalas, Ganadevi deval’s and other Sinhala Hindu Temples in the South. I am they fin then ugly too.

    Also why not add the RC Church of The Queen of Ruhuna too into the List.

    Sinhala Buddhist Nation will at last be rid all foreign. Whist doing please ensure DNA of the Royal Family is made pure. Get our elite Scientist to busy themselves with the project.

    Send our Gajaba worriers to south India and remove Thirupathy Gold. The Stock of Gold from the LTTE must be running Low. Also that temple has no right to be close to the sacred Buddhist Nation

    Demolishing existing places of worship either built legally or otherwise, is a clear violation of rights to practice ones faith. Sri Lanka is not the birth place of Buddhism and there is no evidence that holy sites were claimed by Buddha 2500 years ago in the present Sri Lanka.

    All peace loving Sri Lankans should vehemently oppose this kind of destruction through every means available to them. The Sinhellists (BBS/JHU/SR/BR) orchestrating a grave injustice just as the misguided Taliban. Those who condone this act of demolishing established places of worship; should have a serious look at their conscience specially the filthy ones.

      The ancient shrine of Kathirgamam was taken over by buddhist clergy and renamed ‘kataragama’.
      The Ramakrishna Mission madam built from public contributions with due permission and which was a place of refuge,rest and meditation for all pilgrims,and served free tasty vegetarian meals to all, was taken over on orders by Sirimavo B and converted into a hostel for monks.

        This was an unpardonable and unforgivable heinous act by the Sirimavo government. I yet remember the Buddhist monks who blocked the climb up Valli Mallai with shards of broken glass and stood on the sides abusing the pilgrims who yet tried to make their way up.

        Justice,i remember eating that food when i was a child.I have never eaten more tastier food than that.IF i had food like that i could have become a vegetarian.

        Though that bitch Sirimavo did so much against the tamils appapillai amirthalingam sided with her against JRJ and treated her like kandyan royalty,maybe because of the vellala kandyan govigama historical friendship.Big mistake by amir and the bastard got what he deserved from prabha.If amir had sided with JRJ or had at least been neutral then probably JRJ would not have allowed the 83 riots to become what it did.Sirimavo deserved losing her civic rights and everything JRJ did against her was justified but the sole voice always protesting was Amir.

    In the Hindu pantheon of Gods, Pathrakali ( the angry form of Sakthi . Siva is the form and Sakthy is the function or the motive power). If ancient beliefs prove true, what was enacted would have repercussions. Only time will tell. Man proposes and God disposes. In the current scenario, man destroys and God may make way for appropriate remedies.
    Every force has an equal and opposite reaction in the physical world too. What you sow you reap.

    We have as nation collectively committed many sins, but we never seem to learn!

    Don’t worry guys, people who muck about with Goddess Kali, the time will come where she will put them in their place. These happened to 2 Hindus. A Hindu Lady was a strong devotee of Kali , after converting to Christianity she viewed Goddess Kali as a Demon and started destroying all the statues. After a month whilst cooking her sari caught fire and nobody was at home to save her. She died of severe burns. Next, a Hindu guy another strong devotee of Kali married a Muslim lady, decided to show disrespect to her by consuming beef. He invited my close friend, a white guy for dinner. First time, the Hindu guy prepared Beef Curry. When he had a mouthful of this curry, he choked and his face turned blue gasping for oxygen. Fortunately, the white guy was a medical professional,managed to remove the meat from the throat and called the ambulance. This Hindu guy was taken to Intensive Care Unit fighting for his life. However, with prompt treatment he survived. Maybe Goddess Kali was teaching him a lesson. The white guy said to me he will never mess about with Goddess Kali. The Buddhist monk , a big crook and his animals will soon be paying for their evil behaviour.
