Attempts Made To Attack Rathana Thera’s Temple

Just a day after the JHU announced of their decision to not support President Rajapaksa at the upcoming Presidential polls, attempts had been made to attack the temple in which Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) monk, venerable Athuraliye Rathana thera was residing in just a short while ago by supporters of a UPFA local government politician.

According to sources, the Kotte Mayor had riled up his supporters and had announced that he is going to reclaim the temple land located in Gothami road in Borella and distribute it among the villagers in retaliation to the decision made by JHU and Rathana thera to withdraw their support to the President Rajapaksa at the upcoming Presidential polls.

About 100 men armed with poles and stones had been gathering at various points along the Gothami road in order to launch an attack on the temple. However, some villagers had informed the temple authorities regarding the preparations and the Police had been deployed promptly in order to provide protection to the temple and Rathana thera.

“Groups of men had been gathering along the road, ready to attack the temple but the Police and media arrived at the temple on time. The situation has been brought under control now Police protection has been given to the temple,” Rathana thera said.

        Come on guys , Presidential Election has been declared and now time has come to be united , treat this election as the last chance to rescue SL from this murderous junta regime , so we all have to do our bit , least we can do is give some valuable suggestions to opposition , CT is a well respected news post/blog and sure many of decision makers read our posts , so let’s get cracking

        here are my suggestions

        1) Even though UNP is the main opposition party , they must not try to be bossy towards other parties especially JVP .always needs to work as a team . UNP party name ,colour and Elephant symbol mustn’t be used at any of election rallies.

        2)tens of thousand emails , fax messages ,SMS, Voice messages , face book messages need to send to Kamelesh Sharma reminding him about his earlier promise , i.e sending a huge delegation of commonwealth election monitors to SL before the nominations.

        2)All the opposition party leaders and their party supporters must meet that clown election commissioner Deshapriya and demand a decent amount of election monitors presence from respected countries till the smooth transition.

        3)CCTV cameras to be installed at all the major counting centers.

        4)Generator power to be set up at all the major counting centers.

        5)postal voting system and all the other subsequent actions need to be more transparent.

        6)booking all the major public places/grounds for public rallies.

        7)if necessary , obtaining necessary police approvals in advance.

        8)since JVP has a very strong grass root level support base , negotiate and provide logistical/finance support for an efficient/productive rural area campaign.

        9)CBK is going to be a super star and she is a crowd puller , she needs to be treated with due respect (must let go the past)

        10)educate the public about the importance of this life and death situation.

      Isnt it Ma-Ra as the President is taken an oath to safeguard the Buddhism !

      Where is BBS machans now? Where is Nanasara machang hiding today?

      All that mayhem in Aluthgama was started with a fake complain of a Buddhist monk was assaulted by some Muslims… then again what is the protection a monk parliamentarian have in this Sadharmadeepa governed by our Sadhaarmadeepa Chakrawarthi and direct inhabitant of Sakramuni Sidhartha Gauthama as discovered by Puravidaya Chakravarthi Jackson Anthony.

        It has come to a stage that we cannot believe anything the media reports as (1) most of it is either state controlled or controlled by a government cohort, and (2) The few independent (and courageous) media that remains do not report the truth for fear of intimidation and risk of their workers’ life and limb. Buddhism had been irreparably damaged by the likes of BBS but the decent exponents of Buddhism by monks like Rathana thera are attacked by government goons. MaRa might be victorious at next elections, but at what costs.

        sorry dont be that nave. It all started with postman’s son Nasser with whom Sirima romanced and took our nation into the gutters-rice from the moon.

        so its the fight between the pan arab and arab monarchy that created army men like Qaddafi, Saddam etc.

        If only there was a Lawrence of Arabia who wasn’t that sensitive and leave then there wouldn’t have a terrorist outfit like IS a wing of pan arab.

    RE: Attempts Made To Attack Rathana Thera’s Temple

    Who would try to attack a Buddhist temple than promotes Buddha Sasana? Mara, aka Mara.

    Who would try to subject a Monk to filth? Mara aka MaRa.

    Buddha – The Great Battle (The Life of Buddha) with Mara, MaRa.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUiw4IVPU3M

    Mara, the temptor, distrubs Siddhartha’s meditation in many ways but is defeated. Enlightenment dawns and Siddhartha becomes the BUDDHA and teaches everyone the way to end all suffering.

    What a Sinhala Buddhist Patron we have in MR? Yesterday the rowdies Mahindananda Aluthgamage, Lohan Ratwatte and Wigithsmuni De Soyza had insulted Rathana Thero in filth in the Parliament and Lohan had even tried to assault him.

    MR started his Presidential Election campaign unofficially though, with his Bus Conductor kit hanging from every lamp post, wishing him success by those whose photo appear at the bottom. Do you believe that funds have been pocketed out by these individuals? No, It is all robbed money. MR would have thought that he will as usual carry his Mada Campaign against RW because he had never retorted the Gentleman RW is. But this time around, RW has a team that will include these Priests and CBK with her supporters to return a more powerful Mada Campaign to MR to send him home to Medamulana. RW can become the next President without displaying a single cutout or poster, that would end this meaningless waste of funds on Poster Propaganda War. Ideal start to establish a just society that will enable to establish Democracy, Law and Order. Let those who belittled RW, learn what patience is, which only the Intelligent have and not the educated fools.

        MaRa will use his “thug machinery” to steal the votes….. at least 5% will be taken over by force to count as “winnings”. Going by what is happening in the country and within the Parliament, the signs that the regime has got ready to steal votes is an absolute certainty.
        We are waiting eagerly to see what steps the Opposition has taken or will take to stop this “massacre of the people’s franchise”!

        Those who now support MR clan cannot and will not leave the regime not because they would lose all benefits accrued to them but because their safety is guaranteed only by MR’s Mafia.

        I am told there were couple of people who worked for MR couldn’t leave when they found their backbone simply because they were reminded of their safety outside the criminal fraternity. They stayed and served the clan.

        If you were in their position wouldn’t you want to live?

      There are no Muslim terrorist in Lanka other then those who changed Wateraka Thero in to Islam and shut his mount.

      Athurulia reared the Ram. He did know one day it will butt on his chest. He still wanted to go on that path. We are with Royal Government when they teach lesson to Kaheem, Athurilia, Deva, Wimal….We will not write against RGSL on these.

      Richard Bathiyutheen scavenged anything left on Vanni after 2009. Ghanam Thero enlighten him. Sir Chris Norris was honored by Kudu vase. Champika and Athurulia need their lessons, until they really come to know what Buddha said.

      You do not have to hide what happened. Don’t feel ashmed of it and try to hide it. It is needed.

      Don’t pull the that step back one more time.

      Go ahead ela.

            `Rats are jumping ships. ¬

            its the natural thing for the most crooked politicians to do as they have done in Hindia quite often.

            The best one was (it even stunned your cuddly socialist electric engineer prof david the man now behind/author CC) by none other than charismatic Priyanka.

            She first refused to contest as leader at the GE then after her brother lost they asked her to be leader to be in a position hide their doings so she bust ` get lost all you old farts and speak to my brother who is your leader.

            Honestly Sonia is right – hand over kashmir to the folk who live there and there wont be terrorism. But the Hindians would loose money made in war games with their own blood folk across the border.

    Dear Thero,

    You and your Party JHU wholeheartedly supported when the BBS/Govnt slaughter of Muslims in Aluthgama/Beruwela. When the army committing war crimes and ethnic cleansing under the pretext of humanitarian operation in Pudukudiyiruppu, you didear didn’t even open your mouth. When churches attacked by the BBS/Govnt you were not even bothered.

    Now they come to you and no one there to talk for you!

    History repeats the same lesson again and again….

    The rajapaksa’s, once again, show they are sore losers, and cannot take a loss like decent people.

      whatever the ignorant self proclaimed analysts say SL has no political entity called Sinhala Buddhism and monks do not have political power or power to influence politics. (May be a little but not as depicted here)

      The assault on Rathana thero’s temple proves what i have been telling here. There is no political power and the political power of buddhist temples or monks are over estimated deliberately or because of ignorance by many commentators here.

      What SL have is a law and order issue.

    UPFA Goons! MR has transformed Sri Lanka to the same state as Nazi Germany under Hitler. Anyone who expressed or acted differently from MR and his lemmings get liquidated by the political goons and paid up criminals of the party, just as the Nazi hooligans were doing in Germant at the time. No matter what the government pretends to be, this phenomenon proves without any doubt that the average citizen has no Human Rights in this country. All rights are no reserved for those who lives, acts subservient to this President and his family,a nd are ready to pay homage to them in public like that moron Meryun the Vermyn does.

    The result of the so called 2500 year Sinhala Buddhist civilizations
    is the majority moronic un-buddhist rogue population that you represent.
