“Ban National Shoora Council” BBS Tells Government

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has called on the government to ban the National Shoora Council (NSC) that released a statement earlier this week holding the BBS responsible for the anti-Muslim clashes that erupted in Southern Sri Lanka. The hardline group has justified their demand stating they perceive the NSC as an initial step in a conspiracy to transform Sri Lanka into an Islamic state.

BBS DilantheIssuing a statement, the BBS has also urged the Presidential Secretariat to probe into the legal rights that have been exercised by the NSC to identify themselves as a ‘The National Consultative Council’, since the title can only be legally used by a Council that has been appointed by the President.

They claim that a ‘Shoora Council’ is a phrase used to identify the administrative branch of an Islamic state. The BBS therefore claims, the NSC assuming the title of ‘The National Consultative Council’ gives those outside of Sri Lanka the impression that the ‘administrative branch in the Islamic state of Sri Lanka has held the BBS responsible for the violence that broke out in Aluthgama and Beruwala’.

The BBS has gone on to state that they believe the NSC is being funded by a group of foreign states whose larger plan is to absorb Sri Lanka into their map of Islamic states worldwide.

“Therefore, we urge the government to probe into any foreign relations that are being maintained by this NSC as well as to investigate into any funds they receive from foreign countries. . .”

Furthermore, the statement has called upon the government to ensure that laws are drawn up immediately to curb the misuse of official titles to name bogus establishments as it could bring detrimental harm upon the country.

The hardline group has also alleged that extremist Islamic groups and politicians have disrupted a program they recently implemented named ‘Wishwasa Parama Gnathi’ (Trust is the greatest relative) in order to build on communal harmony between Sinhala and Muslim communities in the grassroots level.

“Statements by groups such as the NSC that have held us responsible for the Aluthgama violence needs to be probed in order to check whether they are being promoted through the influence of foreign powers,” the statement reads.

Expressing their anger and objection to the allegations, they have gone on to question the NSC. “On what grounds are they holding us responsible for the attacks? If they value democracy, what right do they have to taint our image through such damaging statements and how ethical are these allegations? Moreover what legal entitlement do they bear to proclaim us guilty for the chaos that erupted in Aluthgama?”

Thereafter the BBS has gone on to condemn the groups that accuse them, stating they are certain that the ‘gates of hell will be open to such groups for the lies they have spoken’ and while adding, “We can only hope that their God will give them a chance to be forgiven through a confession about the lies they have uttered.”

      “Sinhala Buddhist Racism at its best. I wish Srilanka still under British rule. “

      The data supports BBS as a terrorist Organization, and Shoora Council as a community organization. Terrorists should be banned.

      “The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has called on the government to ban the National Shoora Council (NSC) that released a statement earlier this week holding the BBS responsible for the anti-Muslim clashes that erupted in Southern Sri Lanka. The hardline group has justified their demand stating they perceive the NSC as an initial step in a conspiracy to transform Sri Lanka into an Islamic state.”

      The Banning Should be limited to terrorist organization and Hate organizations.

      1. BBS is a designated Terrorist organization, and

      2. a hate organization.

      Therefore, BBS should be banned.

      http://www.trackingterrorism.org/group/bodu-bala-sena

      SUMMARY:
      The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS – translated as the Buddhist Power Force) is a radical Sinhalese Buddhist nationalist organisation based in Colombo, Sri Lanka that was formed during 2012. The BBS seeks the enforcement of Buddhist predominance in Sri Lanka. It has organised various campaigns against the country’s minority Muslim and Christian communities which, according to the organisation, poses a threat to Sri Lanka’s Sinhalese-Buddhist identity. The BBS engages in hate speech and attacks against minority religions. Its headquarters are located at Sri Sambuddha Jayanthi Mandira in Colombo. Sri Sambuddha Jayanthi Mandira is owned by the Buddhist Cultural Centre, an organisation founded by Kirama Wimalajothi.

      Ethnicity and religion are closely linked in Sri Lanka, with the Sinhalese majority predominantly Buddhist, the Tamils mostly Hindu, and Muslims regarded as a separate ethnic group.

      ASSOCIATION WITH SRI LANKA GOVERNMENT

      Allegations persist that the BBS enjoys a close relationship with the Sri Lanka government and has seemingly been immune from prosecution. These allegations mainly relate to the Sri Lankan President’s brother, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who is regarded as a patron of the BBS. During March 2013, he officiated at the opening of a BBS cultural centre at the port city of Galle, currently used as training centre by the BBS.

        Thanks Amare,

        Sometimes I think how hard is for us to live like brothers and sisters. Why we have to push down other communities. What are we going to get at the end. Nothing.

        Hope one day all these political and religious leaders will realise this simple thing and let everyone live peacefully.

      Bodu Bala Sena

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bodu_Bala_Sena

      Bodu Bala Sena (Sinhala: බොදු බල සේනා; literary Buddhist Power Force; BBS) is a Sinhalese Buddhist nationalist monastic organisation based in Colombo, Sri Lanka.[2]

      According to The Economist, BBS “supports militancy against minorities to preserve the dominance of the Buddhist majority.” It particularly targets the Muslim minority.[3]

      They certainly are a Sinhala Buddhist Terrorist Organization…

      “Don’t these jokers have anything else better to do? “

      They do not have to work. People are suppose to earn and give them Dana and more, may be boys to molest., drinks, and minorities to attack.

      This is Sinhala Buddhist Dhamma.

      They do not need to work 40 hrs and, go home cook , take case of loved one and when tired sleep.

      No Bhavana. Only running amok.

    Death to a fish comes via its mouth by biting on the bait that is hooked….likewise BBS’s death is the Speech given by Gandassara..at Aluthgama and he is now trying all the tricks up his sleeves to nullify that speech. No organization or institution has to tell the WORLD about the Racist agenda they have against the Muslims… looting them, killing them and burning their property. The BBS also asks the govt(indirectly telling GOAT-A) to investigate IF FOREIGN FUNDS ARE FUNNELED TO THIS Shura COUNCIL. Wonder where the MONEY comes from to the BBS… obviously NOT from the followers..who are JOBLESS thugs who ATE FREE FOOD all their lives..WHO DO NOT KNOW about family, wife, kids.. coz they r either castrated or do not have the feelings…

    How come no action has been taken against the BBS for the violence unleashed in Aluthgama, Beruwala Welipenna and other places? ARE they above the law? IF a journalist could be questioned/arrested for taking pictures of the carnage left by the BBS and its supporters, why not take into custody the MONK who said Aluthgamata ABA saranai ? whereby inciting the violence… Things have gotten out of hand to the Masters who fed these goons who, now would go over board and think they have the power to even topple the govt thinking they have the peoples power… LOL.. all but a WET dream…

    The Truth of Beruwela & Aluthgama
    ============================
    For years there has been friction among the Sinhalese Buddhists and Muslims ,mainly concentrated in Galle ,Beruwela and Aluthgama.

    However Darga Town ,Aluthgama has always been a Muslim stronghold and many past events of attacks by the area thugs were successfully everted by the Muslim youths of the area , until the latest military styled well planned attacked was launched with the full open support of the Police and the armed forces ,the youth were in a no match situation ,however when attempts were made to set the mosque a blaze the youth stood the ground and fought back and when the gang was loosing the battle is when the forces arrived in a private vehicle in civilian clothes and shot and killed the three youths in cold blood .as soon as this happened the vehicle quietly rolled over forward toward the gang and asked them to vacate the premises immediately which was done .

    How the entire operation was orchestrated, a female masseur was approached to get the first ignition started ,she visited the shop with her child and one of the staff friendly patted the boys head as a common custom in Sri Lanka ,this was enough for the accomplice in crime to ignite the flame, she made a hue and cry ,the accusation was her little son has been molested by the owner’s brother ,while the patting was done by a sales staff and not the owner’s brother.

    The aim was to first eliminate one of the leading Muslim business in town ,was done with complete success .

    So who were the real players behind the entire scene ? a good question ,very much like in Colombo incidents Sinhalese Buddhist Businessman with the support of the villagers ,it is time that we stop buying this lovey-dovey often parroted phrase of the cunning Sinhalese Buddhist of Oh we were living in complete harmony as one family ,this is the cover up of their integral jealousy and venom they have been harboring against the Muslims for years.

    The entire operation was well coordinated by the Villagers and the ones who carried it out were ex forces and some men who are trained by the forces at the regional BBS Buddhist Police training college in Galle .

    The men who were involved in the attack even knew most of the Muslim residents by name even the females by name.

    These are the same men who were involved in the atrocities against the LTTE civilians and the rape and murder of the female cadres at the end of the war.

    The frequent question is where was the BBS during the war? Of cause it was Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary- Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara who was then [Edited out]

    What is sad here is the amount of trust the innocent Muslims had been having towards their Sinhalese neighbors, it was a bit different from black July where even Sinhalese Buddhist women sat on parapet walls like basket women and pointing out Tamil homes, this time it was more sophisticated and well planned , they maintained a fake good relation with their Muslim neighbors and worked discreetly with the BBS.

    The booty was shared by the neighbors too.

    Muslims must wake up and unite and trust no one.

        Why ask, go and get the facts on Youtube captured thru CCTV footage, and also video recordings of independent surveys and interviews done after the carnage happened. Muslim men are crying like little children due to their state of helplessness. There names and even phone numbers available if you want to contact and verify.

      The Truth of Beruwela & Aluthgama
      ============================

      Muslims were long planned to attack Buddhists… Immense Provocations were made but Buddhists are peacefully…
      Muslims have insulted Load Buddha
      Muslims have destroyed Temples
      Muslims have destroyed Buddhists & brought Halala

      Muslims thugs arrived from Maligawatha and all over the places to loot their own people’s shops and private properties first.. then to Buddhists

      Finally Buddhists Mulims thugs learnt a good lesson for life time

      No more robberies no more looting

    Are the Sinhala us really kewum kana modayos not to understand the Kosovo plans? Could be, as long as we get free money. Who cares from where the money is coming as long as its coming. Doesn’t matter the agony our mothers sisters wives do through in the Middle east as long as we get some bucks end of the month.

    LTTE dispora + Eric are not going to give up eh? Yep why not, when you get free European tours, none veg meals. Lets wine and dine and let the Buddhism die. Who want give a damn about the Buddhism after all, we only want yellow robes to fool the modayos.

    Gandasara,

    Why ban only Shura Council.

    I will give below a list, that should be banned. Give it to GOTA the goat and MARA the Master planner of inciting communalism in Sri Lanka to stay in power, even if it means to annihilate the whole of minorities, just to increase his vote base among the foolish Sinhala masses. You are a bloody tool in his armoury and you will also get the curry leaves treatment, once his job is done, just like what happened to SF,CJ,Bharatha Lakshman,Hakeem and the list only goes on and on and you Gandasara will definitely be added to the list.

    OK, here is the list for you.

    1. S.L.M.C – Minister of Justice says in the Parliament and Press conferences that the Govt. is in connivance with your Booru Balu Sena and even the JMO’s autopsy report is tampered with.
    2. U.N.P – MP Thewaperuma says in the Parliament that your goons were mercilessly attacking women and children when your bloody Govt Police was standing and watching, like a world cup football match was going on.
    3. BAR Association of Sri Lanka – President says that all the provision is there in the statute to take you GANDASRA to police custody for inciting communal viloence.
    4. Women’s Collective – Concludes that the Government was in connivance with you GANDASARA for the loss of lives and destruction caused in Aluthgama and Beruwela.
    5. J.V.P – Leader of the party says, MARA is using you GANDASARA and Booru Balu Sena to increase his vote base among the Sinhalese to stay in power at any cost.
    6. All Parties associated with Vasudeva Nanaykara, Azath Salley, Rajitha Senanayake,Dilan Perera, Wickramabahu Karunanyake etc,etc. Because they all say that you GANDASRA and Booru Balu Sena should be banned

    Will provide you (GANDASARA) with more, once you have done with above. Now run to GOTA the goat for speedy action.

    Actually Galagoda Gandasara’s demand for Banning Shoora Council is perfectly correct as they have no right to talk about Aluthgama Incident as our Jathiye Aadambarakara thatha has already declared that only 3 guys died and destroyed only 153 odd properties and incident was too small to appoint presidential commission. Also Shoora Council has no right ask BBS to complain to IGP, Mr. Illangakoon if they have any information about Muslim extremist Groups. I take this as direct Insult to Chairman BBS(pvt)ltd, Galagoda Gandasara and it’s Cheap executive officer Dilantha Withanage as everybody knows that Chairman BBS is more powerful than the IGP. Probably Shoora Council may not aware the fact that even IGP, Illangakoon also acting under the Instruction of Galagoda Gandasara and Gandasara is following Grease Piya’s orders. We as pure Sinhala Buddhists are aware that Gandasara has controlled his Drinking habits after he was found guilty and fined by the Court. May be he was in a high mood after smoking “Thanamalvila Mal” when he demand banning Shoora Council. “Aba Saranai” Nanasara.

    This monkey is trying to get attention again. He keep this circus going because the goats and animals on top keep allowing him to perform his cheap tricks.

    Only ignorant people will believe that Muslims are taking over Sri Lanka. Statistically it is an impossibility.
    The monkey is doing his dance according to those who feed it. He is just the mindless animal, that makes a lot of noise, lies, and makes others afraid, so that they can become wild animals and attack vulnerable minorities.

    Sri Lanka looks like a third rate banana republic to the rest of the world, full of dictators, nepotism, murder, mayhem corruption, and ethnic strife.
    We should all thank the rajapaksa regime for bringing us shame.

    Shoora or Shura is an Arabic word for “consultation”. The name Shura is mentioned three times in the Koran. The verse 3:159 makes direct reference to those who disobeyed Muhammad. And that indicates not all Muhammad’s followers agree with him on everything. Muhammad knew losing them would hinder his effort conquer new lands. And he knew consultation not Allah’s commands would win over such fallible or hopeless people.

    So, in poured Allah’s order that commanded Muhammad to be shrewd and consult the fallible. And the verse 3:159 says: “Thus it is due to mercy from God that you (Muhammad) deal with them (fallible and hopeless Muslims) gently, and had you been rough, hard hearted, they would certainly have dispersed from around you; pardon them therefore and ask pardon for them, and take counsel with them in the affair; so when you have decided, then place your trust in God; surely God loves those who trust.”

    Following the footsteps of Muhammad, they say that the first four caliphs after Muhammad were chosen by shura. Nevermind they were chosen by Shura, the third caliph was killed by allies of the son of the first. And he was murdered by the fifth caliph a few years later, then wrapped in the skin of a dead donkey and burned. Somehow three of the first four Muslim rulers (caliphs) were murdered. Fourth caliph Ali was stabbed to death. Since Ali was sidelined at the outset, Shia Muslims do not choose leaders by shura but direct from Allah through lineage of Muhammad.

    Whether chosen through Allah’s Shura or Allah direct, infighting between Muslims couldn’t be stopped after Imam Ali’s tenure as caliph. Muslims started fighting each other, infighting turned out to a civil war. Power was eventually grasped by the Umayyad caliphs and then by the Abbasid caliphs. There were also rival caliphates in Egypt and Al-Andalus (Spain). Later the rulers of the Ottoman Empire inherited the caliphate. Then Ottoman Caliphate Was officially dissolved by newly founded Grand National Assembly of Turkey in 1924. So Muhammad had changed his opinion sometimes on the advice of his followers.

    All Islamic countries (dictatorships) have to recognize that God and not the people are sovereign. Real Shura councils is meant for them. Even al Qaeda’s has a shura council. Its senior member Abu Khalil al Madani has issued audio message advising jihadist groups in Syria on the need to stop infighting between them and how to make success of Jihad. The ISIS however have rejected these efforts.

    Turkey, though Muslims are the majority, is a secular democracy. Hence original shura has no use for Turkey. But most Muslim majority countries name at least one of their assemblies the shura council.

    What BBS says is true, Sri Lanka’s ‘National Shoora council’ masquerading as an official body of Sri Lanka has one aim that is to deceive the world at large.

      First of all learn your manners before addressing a Prophet. We muslims always to your religious leader as Lord Buddha because we are taught to respect. So get back to your School you studied and learn this simple lesson first without address our Prophet (peace be upon him) by his Name. This Shows you Level of education of understanding for other religions, is this what your great Religion preach? Dont pick from the Internet and Quote like as if you are Scholar, if you want to learn what Islam then take the holy quran in Sinhala and read it with respect then you get most of the answers. So dont be dumb ass by muttering without knowing Facts.

    I think Ponnasaara has lost his head! He knows his Balu Sena is even categorised as a Terrorist Organisation in the world and the Terrorist wants an a descent association banned. Ponnasaara you and your thugs should be banned by the government because your Group is the biggest threat to the Society and to the Country itself. But this will not happen because this very government created you and your Terrorist Organisation. Your honey moon with the government will not last Long, you and your hencemen will run like Dogs very soon. Judgement is given today in this world for atrocities, so you are not above the law of the gods, you will get your sentence at the appropriate time. Good luck until then you dirty Terrorist.
