Asigiriya Thera’s Call To Stone Muslims, A Talibanization Of Buddhism: Mangala

Mangala Samaraweera condemning calls by Asigiri Chief Prelate to stone Muslims, says the hateful words by the monk is a ‘Talibanization’ of Buddhism and that no Buddhist can condone a call to stone another human to death.

Publishing a tweet from his official Twitter account this morning, Mangala says now is the time for true Buddhists to unite against the religion from being tainted by violent extremism.

Mangala reminds the Buddhist community that it goes against all Buddhist principles and beliefs to condone a statement to stone another human being to death, even if it emanates from monks.

Below is his tweet:

True Buddhists must unite NOW against the Talibanization of our great philosophy of peace & love of all beings. No Buddhist can condone a statement to stone another human being to death, even if it emanates from the robed orders.

Mangala so far has been the only politician to issue a public rejection and condemnation of the Asgiri thera’s anti-Muslim speech made on Sunday, that blessed violence against Muslims.

Despite availability of video proof of the speech, Warakagoda Sri Gnanarathana still remains immune to being charged with violating the ICCPR Act.

      Dear Hon Minister Mangala Samaraweera,

      Thank you for having the guts to call a spade, a spade, and the monk from Asgiriya, as such.

      Amarasiri calls for all True Sinhala Buddhists who understand the Dhamma to pelt the monk with rotten eggs so that he will smell for what it he is, a Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist “ Monk for insulting Buddha, without killing the monk.

      Please stop prostrating to these Mara following Monks and their cohorts. Buddhism can be practiced without prostrating to these idiotic monks whom the low IQ, 79 grass eaters have put on a pedestal.

        Patta Moda Copy and Paste Amarasiri, Despite your IQ of 179, (or is it SQ Stupidity Quotient of 179?) you have missed something here. This Mangala, who seems to be your idol, does not have the IQ to understand his own Fuel Formula. So, how can he understand the real content of what the Prelate said?
        .
        I wish the Prelate had said what you say that he said – stone the bastard Doctor Safi (the Sri Lankan counterpart of Josef Mengele of the Nazi era).
        .
        without killing the monk? Why not go the whole way and do that too? Are you afraid of aiding and abetting an Anantarya Papa Karma, which is much worse that Copying and Pasting?

          Edwin rodrigo,

          Go ahead and prostrate in front of this imbecile Mara monk, and ask that you be sent to Nibbana or Nirvana, in your next life, and make sure you take two young boys as as well.

          You can repeat this by going to the Temple of the Tooth containing a canine tooth, and ask the same favors.

          Only idiots prostrate to these imbecile monks. Go ahead and prostrate. Next time you prostrate, you put your hands under The saffron robe and pull the two mangoes hard. You will be able to kick this prostrating habit.

          edwin redde – goo,
          Just explain the connection between calculating fuel formula and killing someone using “Shariya Law”. What are the evidences you or Chief Prelate have against this Doctor. Why GMOA keeping silent. This matter is related to Medical Profession but GMOA is silent. Are you a close follower of Wimal Viagrawansa? or that “Pacha Natha” Channa Jayasumana. Do you know that until today Police keeping the Doctor under custody without producing him before Court. This Doctor was arrested by “Pohottu Stooge” DIG Kithsiri Jayalath for unusual wealth. Even “Fallopian Tube Expert” and “International Coup Expert” Wimal Vigrawansa is also accused for the same and there is a court case before the Court against him. “VOG edwin Redde Goo” you are real piece of Shit.

      Distortion as usual by corrupt vested interests.
      /
      Listen to the Thera’s anusasanawa. He clearly states that some are calling for the ‘stoning’ of Islamic crminals, but he does not subscribe to that view. He advocates boycotting of Islamist businesses, as he is totally entitled to . (There is a similar BDS movement against Israel in the US and Europe).

        You suffer from selective amnesia. He did say he does not subscribe to that view, but continued with ‘but that is what must be done’. Don’t try to fool all of the people all the time, soon you will be called out. This monk is a public disgrace and should be shunned. They are all acting irrational and unnatural and very soon we will be seeing more disgraceful stunts that would shame the nation. Just wait and see. When they try to destroy other innocent people, karma will follow them to their very end.

        Mr/Ms Samarakoon
        Actually, the BDS movement is not directed at Israel but at the products of the illegal settlements, the lands which more than half a century ago the UN declared should be returned to the Palestinians.
        And Trump has just cocked another snook at international law by approving Israel’s acquisition of the Golan Heights from Syria. In return he has been “honoured” by having a settler village there called “Trump Heights”.
        The massive crime against the Palestinians is surely one of the factors initiating & feeding the development of radical Islam in the Middle East.

        What is “Panasakuala” for? Have you ever heard Buddha or any of his disciples visiting funerals for Pansakula? According to the Buddhist theory, offering merits (pin) after death is an utterly meaningless practice. That is expressed in the Buddhist summary statement “Chethana’hang Bhikkhave’ Kammang Vaddami” meaning, only the mind of a living person can control that person’s destiny. I don’t know the history of the practice of Pansakula, but I’m certain that it wasn’t part of Buddhist activities during Buddha’s life time. As a matter of fact, none of the modern faith based practices didn’t exist then. It is said that, when monks asked what is to be used as the guidance after Buddha’s death, Buddha advised them to follow his teachings. It is important to see that Buddha never instructed to follow his own disciples (Sangha Sasana) probably b’cos he knew, by experience, how wrong their behavior could become! According to historians (The Wonder That Was India by A. L. Basham), the term “Sangha Ratnaya” entered into Buddhist lexicon only about three hundred years after Buddha’s death.
        For these reasons, I have made NO PANSAKULA OR NO ANY OF THE REGULAR OFFERINGS (DANA) as one of the conditions in my last will!

      Yes he would be, just like the other hate monger, the BBS thug. The politicians are so hell bent on getting the majority vote, and not losing their powers, they will accept anything, including such vile racist statements, and do and say nothing to condemn it. Their own selfish needs above the unity of this country. It is refreshing to see Mangala Samaraweera speak out bravely like this.

    come on Mangala where have you been?

    Sri Lanka Sinhala Buddhism is the violent Taliban version …..since independence Sri Lanka Buddhist monks have led race riots against Tamils, now the Muslims. supported by Sinhala thugs masquerading as monks .

    Sad that Ranil Wickramasinghe is a lame donkey of a Prime Minister who doesn’t want to come out and address the nation to condemn this and other hate mongering statements by the so called clergy. Sirisena is a slimy crook of a President. So Sri Lanka has no leaders, no role models…never had any..therefore the society has become depraved…no wonder…
    Mr Samaraweera would have made a better leader I suppose, but no one can fix the minds of the people of this country alone, or in a hurry. It will take a generation og correct policies and unpicking of the warped way of thinking.

    Whipping up Islamaphobia by a Bhuddist Prelate of Srilanka does clearly proves that The Country and its Government is in cohort with the statement by the Prelate.
    There are no other words to describe this kind of challenge openly by a Prelate has not been taken as Barbaric by our GOSL
    Violating ICCPR ACT and not responding by taking action against this Racist is like giving in to Racist Robed Prelates and the threats of ” fast unto death “.

    If the GOSL did not take action against this individual where’s UN and UNHCR.?????
    Why the international community continue to support SL in providing Aid funds for developments ect.
    In the same note these Yellow Robed Racists continues with their Racists Rants while the government keeps mum about it?? Why?? The country has gone to Dogs.
    Are they just subdued and threatened by these men in yellow in the name of Lord Buddha But no one questions this Racist Man who DOES NOT GIVE A “HOOT ” to the Sacred Philosophy of the great man Lord Buddha himself ??
    What’s going on? This is not ” Lord Buddha’s Philosophy.??
    Why jungle barbarism is followed in the name of the great man Buddha??
    Except Mangala who seem a true Patriot worried about the future of our nation should be recognised for his stand.
    Where are the so called Theravada Buddhist followers?? Please say something.
    This stone throwing should be Condemned Strongly and Openly. Now.

      Whipping up Islamophobia was the same politics used against Tamils and their Hinduism by the Racist Prelates who hides under their Amude . One hand holds the Amude promising Lord Buddha’s Buddhism while the other hand Promises Hate, Vengeance, Revenge and Murder.
      Those who follows this fictitious beliefs must be living in denial.
      Lord Buddha said
      These are deadly against Lord Buddha’s Philosophy.
      Are they not committing Crime in the name of a Religion( Philosophy) ??
      Shame.

      These yellow Robed Mafias should follow Lord Buddha’s Eight Precepts before wearing those holy Robes and before spreading venom to the Unsuspecting TRUE BUDDHISTS.
      THE Eight fold Paths the Lord himself believed and preached are: RIGHT Views,
      thoughts ,Speech, Action, Livelihood, Effort, Mindfulness,and finally Concentration.
      WHAT THIS STONE THROWING IN ROBES MEANS TREACHEROUS TO ONES BELIEFS AND HIDING BEHIND NOBLENESS OF LORD BUDDHA.
      TOTALLY WRONG FOR ONES ACTIONS AND CONSCIENCE.
      SHAME ON THEM.

      Is the Assgiria placing himself as the common candidate of the Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto sufferers? If he contests we must support him as this will teach the Sinhala/Buddhists good lesson what it would be like to live in a Sinhala/Buddhist theocracy.

    The Asgiriya High Priest in his sermon on the subject of stoning people, is meticulously correct in framing his recommendation. He does not say stone them. He refers to an imaginary Upsakamma who he claims has suggested stoning and says that we buddhists should do precisely that.

    Forget about importing Chinese cigarettes to 6000 Chinese labor force for a moment. I always wandered how the Christian religious leadership of this country has the total control over his subordinate priests, in contrast to the Buddhist chief monks who did not have any clue or control over their subordinate monks – especially the likes of the extremist Gnanasara thera and his crusaders. With this outburst of Asgiriya chief prelate, do we recognize the invisible force and the voice behind the Gnanasara mouth-piece?

    Moslems should be put through a thorough process of vetting to determine how badly radicalized they are and those who are beyond recovery (which I think is well over 50%) should be incarcerated indefinitely and not allowed into the society. This should be done before any election or any other similar event to avoid further massacres and further radicalization of Moslems. Those who want to use Buddhist methods are welcome to preach to those fanatical 50% but do not expect a lot of success. They have crossed over to the level of barbarians, utterly devoid of any form of humanity. This is how they were able to remain quiet and look the other way when the Easter Sunday massacre was committed. And they will do the same thing when the next, even more lethal massacres take place.

    Lankans should ignore men who take umbrage at monks or even the monks themselves at this time. Put your priority in getting the Moslems completely DNA tested and into a database, facial recognition database, and monitor their movements closely. Those who manage to pass tests for radicalization but still arouse suspicion should be fitted with ankle monitors so that they can be tracked around the clock. Mandated weekly and monthly checking of these monsters must be carried out. Every Moslem household should submit a manifesto that lists all objects that can be used as weapons that are in their possession and any fraud should be severely dealt with.

    Lanka can learn a lesson from the Chinese in this case. They are keeping the Uighur Moslem monsters under control for the past several years with tremendous success. The above methods are used along with other advanced technology to keep the barbarians under control. Lanka should be able to borrow this technology from the Chinese. In fact the Chinese may have a vested interest to lend this technology to Lanka.

        Buddha was involved with politics all the time. The first time was in the Sakya – Koliya war, which was prevented by his personal efforts.

So you see, throughout his life Buddha was involved with politics.

    [edited out] stone throwing is not in the Buddhist tradition: it belongs to the Jewish and Islamic culture. Is there anything fundamentally wrong to say that a group of cowards of whatever faith deserve to be stoned to death if they have killed 250 innocent Christian people who were worshiping in their churches or enjoying breakfast on Easter Sunday? people are still dying from theEaster sunday bombings. it is a smokescreen to elevate the prelate’s remark when a horrendous crime like the bombings was committed .

    • 8

      Yes there is. The group of ‘cowards’ you refer to are already dead. Why should the innocents pay with their lives by getting stoned to death, for something they had nothing to do with? A monk is supposed to propagate love not hatred, kindness not wickedness, forgiveness not revenge and such are the noble qualities we expect from a monk of such high ranking. But something rotten is happening in the selection process and further, monks are being manipulated by politicians to do their bidding with financial gifts and luxury vehicles as bribes to keep them buzzing. A stench of the highest order. The raw side of Buddhism.

    The masses are waiting for our highly qualified FM (Finance , not Foreign this time ) to bring back the US $ 18 billion plundered by the previous regime as he promised , and make this a little piece of paradise . He seems to be getting sidetracked by Buddhism rather than doing the job he’s meant to do .

    Theocracy in action. The Saudi Arabia of South Asia with prelates issuing “fatwas”. “Great” progress Sri Lanka. No wonder why SL had a 30 year brutal conflict. It has become a hostile place for all minorities and anyone who criticises the so called “Buddhism” practised by Sri Lankan.

    The only point I find problematic is that the priest is supposed to have called for stoning, which happens to be the Islamic way of killing. He should have suggested a Buddhist way of killing – such as – er er ..Hey! there is no Buddhist way of killing whatsoever. That is probably why the Prelate had mentioned stoning. So let them be stoned ….

      Edwin,why don’t you select one of these and introduce it for buddhism in sri lanka.Or send the entire list to mahanayake of asgiriya chapter and he can try it one by one on Dr.shafi first and then some of those other muslims arrested and see which gives the highest amount of pain.
      ps.what about pain on oneself.Tibetan and vietnamese buddhist monks did that.Please do not give that idea to sinhala monks,we will have immolation after immolation non stop starting with the asgiriya mahanayake and gnanam.

      compared to these stoning seems very civilised.What a wonderful world we had in the past.what a wonderful world
