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.

    The Taliban is not a bad in comparison to our Saffron robed terrorists. “Kill them all wherever you find them” the constantly terrorizing quotes of the IS has come to be true with our terrorists robed and who has taken shelter in the thee of the four main Nikaya’s. That is why they are in-fighting to oust the other that dies not tow with the rest of the terrorists.

      Hon Minister Mangala Samaraweera,

      Q1. Is Sinhala Buddhism, Buddhism or a Cult of Buddhism and Mara-ism combined with racism? Is it that what the constitution giving preferential treatment for?

      Q2. Why are the so-called Sinhala populace prostrating to these cultist monks? Liw mean IQ of 79?

      Q3. Is Wahhabism and it’s clones, Islam or Devilism/Satanism.

      Q4. Why are a fraction of the so-called Muslims, follow the Wahhabism, the Devil/Satan? Low mean IQ of 79?

      The answer is blowing in the wind?

    We had one high Asgiriya Chingkalla Therai or Thavalai stating that the island needs a Chingkalla Poutha Hitler and now another Asgiriya Thera or Thavalai croaking out loudly to stone Muslims. Where are the stones going to come from? From the Therai’s (toad) or Thavalai’s ( frog) big Chingkalla Poutha Fascist well? May be we should sent all these Therais and Thavalais to the science lab to be dissected and their little toady brains analysed. On the other hand there is lots of water during the rainy/monsoon season and frogs and toads tend to croak quite a lot.

    The way this country is going it will end up as one of those impoverished African countries.
    Those Sinhalese who are cheering at the expense of Muslims and beating their chests with nationalism and racism will cry in years to come. the basic fact is you can’t attack and kill minority and prosper, show me one country which has done that successfully?
    Does he want civil war? the economy will go downhill, world will boycott and prosecute us, Sinhalese note: The monk does not have to work or worry about your children or where the food comes from, he just sits in his palace and people will feed him , in other words he is simply a rich beggar, but YOU wand your family will suffer

    Oh, look at who is talking about Buddhism!!!
    Mangala!!!!!
    This is the man who tried to convert Sri Lanka into a secular country.
    He even tried to ruin our family based Sinhalese society by trying to legalize LGBT, prostitution and abortion.
    These days, he is all out to promote smoking.
    Once, he reduced beer prices stating that beer is better for school children than soft drinks!!!
    He recently said that Sri Lanka is not a Sinhalese Buddhist country.
    Give us a break, Mangala.
    You should be the last person to talk about Buddhism.
    Clearly, the Most Venerable Chief Prelate Thero has said something out of context.
    Though I don’t approve, the Chief Prelate Thero has repeated what Upasakammas have said, to show the exasperation of Sinhalese over the recent events.
    In other words, the statement was like, enough is enough!!!
    I wish the Thero did not mention Upaasakamma part.
    Even in our indignation, we should not forget that Buddhism is a non-violent religion.
    A Muslim Doctor named Safi has done 8000 caesarean operations and upto now over 1000 Sinhalese mothers including one Muslim whose husband is a Sinhalese, have complained that they haven’t conceived after the operation and also having serious after effects.
    Before going into the sterilization part, an investigation has to be conducted to find out as to why these mothers, 1000-in-number, had to undergo sudden caesarean operations by Dr. Safi, while they were waiting for normal childbirth.
    According to one mother, Dr. Safi had taken her to the operating theater in the middle of the night and conducted the operation without any staff!!!
    This is a very serious case.
    If a Sinhalese Doctor had done this, we all know the reaction of the international community, the UN, the UNHRC, the SLHRC, Amnesty International, various NGOs and INGOs.

      Get educated. You seem to be believing all the false propaganda, and anti Muslim nonsense. Open your brains and try to get information from credible sources, and stop spreading utter BS:

      “The CID has now recorded Weera Bandara’s statement. A total of 758 statements have been recorded by the CID team. They include testimony and evidence from other specialist doctors and nursing staff as well as external specialists.

      So far, there has been no evidence suggesting that Dr. Mohamed Shafi, a senior House Officer at the Kurunegala Hospital, had carried out illegal sterilization of any women.”

        What false propaganda?
        I am talking about not one complaint, not 2, but over 1000 complaints!!!!!!
        How do you expect to obtain EVIDENCE for illegal sterilization? By word?
        Get educated.
        This serious allegation of possible sterilization WITHOUT THE CONSENT of pregnant women can only be proved by a medical examination.
        The common method for female sterilization is either by cutting or blocking the Fallopian Tube.
        It is easy to verify this.
        As I clearly pointed out in my previous comment, before going for illegal sterilization issue, the first thing is to check the medical records of the pregnant women who had to undergo caesarean operations, out of the blue.
        As apparent, all these over 1000 pregnant women were supposed to have normal delivery!!!! The investigations should be started from that point.
        The Police seem to be beating around the bush aka doing the last thing first.

          Read the above article, and stop acting like YOU know more than the investigators, police, and authorities. You are spreading fake news based on ignorance. Stop believing the idiots who thought “wanda pethi” was put into food, and sweets were given to the Sinhalese to make them barren, until SCIENTISTS disproved it.
          Only village idiots believe this nonsense.
          You sound like you are one of these anti Muslim trolls.

            There is no need to give me unsolicited advice about what to read.
            I was talking about Dr. Safi matter. Your reply has nothing to with that.
            Having said that, there was no proper investigation about sweets sold at school canteens although there were cases of dizziness among some children after consumed them.
            Being belonging to a particular ethnicity should not be considered as an exoneration from any crimes.
            For your information, Muslims should be happy as Sinhalese have not yet talked about land grabs by Muslims in the Western Province particularly, and elsewhere too, since 2010.

          The men aren’t fertile anymore due to their physical fitness or lifestyle.
          There are numerous reasons why men being infertile.

          Male Infertility symptoms
          Sperm problems can be caused by:

          Trapped sperm inside the testicles
          Orchitis (inflammation of one or both testicles – mumps is a common cause)
          Sexually transmitted infections (damage to tubes where sperm are stored)
          Testicles that don’t descend into the scrotum at birth
          Varicoceles (varicose veins of the testicles)
          Drugs used to treat cancer
          Reversal of vasectomy, which may be associated with poor quality sperm
          Drug addiction reduces sperm count.
          Retrograde ejaculation

      CHAMPA
      Before you brandish the horrendous & ridiculous accusation against Dr Shafi again, please take the trouble to keep abreast of developments. A top cop who planted the story in the Sinhala paper in the first place, is being/has been investigated by CID. See:
      https://economynext.com/Sri_Lanka_top_cop_on_the_mat_over_sterilization_scare-3-14832-10.html

      Unfortunately, the main English have failed to report this so far. But even so, you must have read about the evidence given by 69 nurses who have worked with the doctor who said he never did a y such thing and it wdnt have been possible anyway.
      It is criminal that people like you are repeating dangerous slanders of this kind without informing yourself of all the available facts.
      8,000! Who could carry out so many deliveries.

        Read my reply to Tara.
        There is no need to read evidence by nurses, when this can easily be verified through a medical examination.
        You should read the statement by Dr. Safi and get the information about his caesarean operations from the horses mouth itself.
        Honestly, this is the first time I talked about this, as I wanted people to pay more attention to the most serious issue in front of us, which is SOFA and ACSA with the USA.
        However, as there is a sinister attempt to make this matter a non-issue, I thought of sharing my opinion.

          Are you a qualified medical practitioner or an expert on reproductive science?
          If you are not happy with what you assumed to have happened to these women why don’t you take them to police and report as to what had happened to them. On the other hand you could initiate a class action against the hospital. If you are successful each plaintiff could earn millions in compensation. You too can get a cut/commission from them.

          You are wasting lot of your precious time here.
          Run along sue the hospital, individual doctors, nurses, orderlies, midwives, ……

      79, 64, 49? The mean, one SF below or two SD below the mean?

      This is the core problem with the Para-Sinhala Buddhists as well as the Para-Monks. Of course, this extends to the other Parad, Para-⚾️Muslims as well as Para-Tamils.

      The Veddah Aethho Chief says that the Paras have turned the land into. Cesspit.

    Unheeded alliance of UNP has turn into political clowns has been incorporated into UNP.
    By that CBK ruling during her mismanagement of whole system by family banadism 1994 to 2005, while she who recruited Samaraweera of that Mangal in to United Front Alliances. 11 Years of unnecessary wasted time of People of Island by CBK wasted that doing nothing for the nation and people of Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka.
    I admire but having reservation of SWRD social reforms had been inities by MEP won after 1956 landslide victory had been an open New Era of after 1948 colonial policies of UNP, which was different from that.
    History has given credits SWRD and its party of SLFP has shifted new path of politics towards that looking for more democratization of society of Ceylon .Which I accepted…respected .

    But we shall keep up our efforts to expose Samaraweera of Managla UNP policies of Neoliberalism resolutely warning the openly invited USA Military troops to an Island naked intervention of sovereignty of Democratic Republics of Sri lanka by concept that political clowns of MS!
    This is an uneducated imagism of Samarwaeera having become that depend on USA hegemonist are putting into effect a phase of UNP which has illusion of hegemonist phrases which serve disguise the same old cynical British colonialism.
    By and large criticizing Buddhism by Samaraweera of M….but not only high sounding phrases in which words of anti- Buddhism can conceal the fact that teaching of Buddhist theory of causality was very foundation of 2600 years our Sinhalese-Buddhist civilization cannot be ignored by millions of majority path of citizens of Sri lankan.
    Undoubately the Samraweera of M…is hard core UNP, no doubt about that but his imitativeness of looking after that of USA path of Hegemonism .
