Ban The BBS – An Online Petition Launched

An online petition campaign urging “ban the BBS” is launched today. The petitioners say; The Bodu Bala Sena has long been suppressing freedom and multiculturalism in Sri Lanka. Their actions, speeches and brutal approaches to other races and creeds in the island are not only undemocratic, but contain elements of Nazism. Under the guise of protecting Buddhism they are refusing others the right to practice and to live within the bounds of non-Buddhist life. Muslim shops are attacked, Halal packaging has been discontinued, Christian churches are attacked, and the Eucharist desecrated. Now the BBS wants to ban women from wearing the Niqab and the Burqa. This is not Buddhist, it is not decent, it is not human. Please sign this petition in solidarity with those who support basic dignity and the freedom to live within one’s chosen religious and cultural beliefs.

    Good Move. THis is a long over due.
    If the law in Sadui is such that, every body should cover the face disregard the fact of been a muslim or not,
    Sri Lankan law could be ” no one can cover the face”. this is perfectly inline with the sinhala culture in Sri Lanka.

    further, this is the practice in France also. So no need to argue. this should be the law in Sri Lanka.

    futher the benifits for mulim women out of this are:

    1) they can mingle with the rest of the comunity.
    2) they can be clutured
    3) they are not jailed any more

    further ;

    1) good for national security
    2) good for ethnic harmony

    this is good in any aspect. besides Sri Lanka is not a cold country. so no need to cover faces. Besides all, Sri Lanka is a sinhal-buddhist contry, where every ethinic group can live in harmony. no Shariya or any other law in Sri Lanka for sure but governed by the general law of the country.

    Great step forward. Hail Sri Lanka Hail.

      @ Bin laden from hell,
      Who told you in Saudi Arabian law says women should cover face??? Do your mother or sister work there as housemaid?? Ask them.
      Nobody will ask in KSA to cover the face…it can be a muslim or non-muslim doesn’t matter.
      Muslim follow the law of Quran and teaching of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh).

      As a Buddhist (I assume) Do you follow the teaching of Lord Buddha nor Do you know what is Buddhism? Have you ever tried to learn it? If you really know the Buddhism you will definitely understand Islam!!!!!!
      I really ashamed on you.

          kap de Silva,
          To bring about cultural harmony, read the Quran commands by Allah or rules for Muslims on religious freedom such as Jizya, tax on followers of other religions, forced conversions, commands to kill Jews and Christians, fiendship with Christians and Jews, women worth less than men, how women can prove rape, how to beat wife, how to marry temporarily and etc five times a day seven days a week, thirty days a month, 365 days a year through out your life. You can cultivate harmony, just like what’s happenning all over the world.

      Bin Laden From Hell,

      Yes, ban the racist BBS Theravada Sinhala Buddhists who are against Egalitarianism. All progressives in Sri Lanka support this move.

      Good to hear from your Avatar. By the way, did you get your 72 Virgins? There was no reference to 72 Virgins in the Quran, and therefore, you are a real sucker. However, we give you credit for Anti Imperialism, and give you Nirvana.

      Sri Lanka should strive to be an Egalitarian Country, and be in the top 5.

      http://www.goodnewsfinland.com/archive/news/finland-worlds-third-most-egalitarian-country/

      Banning BBS will help in that direction.

      This does not mean the Burka and Nikab be allowed. Why? Because it not required in Islam. See Turkey and Tunisia.

      Finland ranks third in the World Economic Forum’s global survey of gender equality. Finland figures strongly, particularly with regard to the education of women and the number of ministerial posts they hold. A total of 135 countries were surveyed.

      Nordic countries as usual placed at the top of the standings. Ahead of Finland were Iceland and Norway with Sweden following in fourth place

          “Quran didn’t mentioned about 72 virgins but it has in Islam.”

          So it is not in the Quran? So where is it? I could not find a decent credible reference.

          Can you give me or point to a credible Reference,

          “And Sri Lanka will be Buddhist republic of Sri Lanka.”

          Sri Lanka needs to be an Egalitarian Republic. Looks like, with Buddhism, it cannot be achieved. Too many Myth following Hegemonic Monks,,

              reference to 72 virgins, not mentioned in the Quran?

              That does not cut it, because if the “Islamic Books” have any credibility, they need to go to the source, the Quran.

              The 72 Virgins Are A Lie (And Other Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Islam).

              Who cares Whether it is called The Egalitarian, Buddhist, Hindu, Islamic, Christian, or Jain as long as it is Egalitarian, there is separation of Temple, Mosque Church and State, and Religion is is a private matter and there is no law and order.

              Currently we have a Sinhala Theravada Buddhist Terrorist Republic.

              Buddhism, rather Theravada Buddhism, is the CURSE of Lanka.

              The Monks are trying their best to keep their hegemony. Sinhalayo, Awadiyaw!, wake up.

        Egalitarianism-
        How do you deal with this Mr Egalitarianism?
        Imagine the following scenario: there are five mortally ill people and 20 vials of medicine ready for distribution (let us assume that they belong to a charitable institution committed to fighting mortal diseases). In order to be cured, one needs to drink five vials. Now, if the distribution of vials were to be left to a follower of simple egalitarianism, he would give four vials to each of the ill, thus saving none of them. In light of the above, it might be argued that the egalitarian exhibited the virtue of impartiality, leaving all the persons involved to an equally bad fate, but it would be absurd to argue that his brand of egalitarianism is in any sense geared towards helping the needy or expanding the range of social opportunities.
        {copied from http://www.strike-the-root.com/ten-briefly-described-problems-of-egalitarianism}.

        Simply put, how can it be equal to all religions without banning them all. Banning means not equal. get over you passion for Egalitarianism, Amarasiry! Do something to make people tolerant instead.

              Sumanasekera,

              “I just saw the u tube clip what you mentioned. I wanted to see how monkeys rejected BBS.”

              The experiment was on fairness. BBS is against fairness. So, you cannot communicate about religion to monkeys. It has to be food, something they are familiar with. For many people, religion is equally important as food. Don’t you give Dana to monks? If BBS is reborn as these monkeys, the monks would have the same ethics as the monkeys. That is the point. Rebirth allows for that in Buddhism, if you believe.

              “It didn’t exhibit the co-relation between monkeys and BBS but how the female moneys are rejecting unequal wage.Do you think your rubbish comments would helps to changing common thinking pattern of common people in this country.”

              It is about equality and fairness.

              “Do you think your rubbish comments would helps to changing common thinking pattern of common people in this country.”

              Yes. If you explain better. Many are not thinkers, just followers, myth followers. In the year 1600, when Giardano Bruno was burned at the stake, for promoting Copernicus and Galileo, they gradually understood, and today about 75% believe the Earth goes around the Sun.

      That is too bad.

      We want to liberate Buddhism from sinhal-buddhists and separate Sinhalese from sinhala-buddhism.

      Since you seem to believe in Sinhala-Buddhist identity its time you left this island and settled down in your Ancestral land, Bihar in India.

        Samarasekara,

        Take my word it is you Sinhala Buddhist people that BBS finally will bring wrath upon.

        You and your sons will be forced to wear white sarong and shirt to work and day to day life, white Lama sari for your daughters and wife.

        There won’t be much social activities or fun. Many social activities will be banned while the only fun you will have will be going to Temple and taking Pansil and Giving Dana.

        All social activities including Parties, Movies,social drinks and consuming all types of meat, chicken and fish will be banned.

        You will be forced to eat only Vegetarian diet including Grass and Coconut dust……Polkudu.

        But the best part is while BBS will impose Buddhist Sharia Law upon you, the Rulers, their families, their goons including BBS will Languish in the newly built Casinos drinking foreign Wisky and having rocking time with Imported Prostitutes, travelling abroad, going in super luxury cars, acquiring houses, land and property. Acquiring Gold, ivory,valuables and expensive wood building unlimited Pansalas and houses for their framily members and most probably will be into producing unlimited babies to women to increase Sinhala population.

        Therefore get ready to eat Punnakku and Grass and produce the next generation of Cows to Sri Lanka.

        Do you know what the real Agenda of BBS is. Did you ever speak to them. Why don’t you ask them and let us know what is their ultimate agenda is for you Sinhala Buddhist people. Please do so.

        That’s why Sudda said….Sinhalaya Kapatiya Hora Kanna Yodaya.
        All say….. Sadu…..Saaaaduuuu…..Sssssaaaaaadddddduuuuuu.

        Forgot one more thing. BBS will also bring back the old Kandy Law, which is “Eka Gei Kema” Remember how in old Kandy two, three or four brothers shared one wife and put the Amude on top of the door when one sleeping with the woman.

        Yes they will definitely bring this back, so all will be covered.

        Please ask them what their constitution is and report to us. I see this when they give speeches.

      Stewart,

      I am not sure what you mean “spread of Islam”.

      Are you worrying that more people are finding Islam is the religion of choice and therefore you would like to stop people converting to Islam using the BBS?

      Or are you implying that Islam should not be in this country and you wish to use BBS to get rid of Islam from this country?

      Or are you suggesting that the Muslims are proselytizing and therefore need to be stopped using the BBS?

      Quite confusing to me!

      There is no such thing as ‘spread of Islam’. By repeatedly hearing of it through BBS rhetoric, you have actually got brainwashed into believing in such a thing. Added to that, the hijacking of Islam by Al-Qaeda, the western media has gone to town painting all Muslims as suspect errorists and are of a barbaric religion. This is what we Muslims call fear mongering and also being Islamophobic. If you really analyze the population in , the majority Buddhist reign at 70@ of the entire population, whereas the Muslims 9.7@, and the Hindus 12@. Being such a large block of the najority population, I don’t see how such a small minority can be perceived to be threat. Why are all the monks taking issue when they themselves can take the leadership, and permit marriage within their clan, get married to willing partners to produce children till they reach menopause, and thereby solve the problem. It looks like God has put the fear of Muslims in their hearts, and this has disturbed a hornets nest.

      You want to ensure a peaceful, tolerant society you got to live that way tool It matters not what your religion or cultural belief is. You can stop the spread of the “other” only if you yourself adhere to the principles and values you want to promote.

      Do we see that happening in Sri Lanka? Do we see the leaders, most of whom are Buddhist, adhering to the principles of non-violence and tolerance. Who endorses the corruption, the night racing, the spread of casino’s in Sri Lanka? The fathers and sons we see drinking are brawling, Are they following the Buddhist principle?

      A three wheeler driver told me recently ” In Sri Lanka there are three rules; one for those who govern this country, one for the rich and elite who also flout all the norms of society, and the other for common man, who is fighting to eke out a living”

      Banning the practices of the Muslims, Hindus or Christians, desecrating their places of worship, and attacking their businesses, will only help the “spread” of the religion, and give rise to terrorism.

      If the BBS is genuine in implementing good values and Buddhist principle in Sri Lanka, it should go after those who call themselves Buddhist but frequent Casinos, and promote thuggery.

      The Muslims, and Christians can look after themselves. They will tackle the wrongdoings they see within their church/mosque hierachy. The BBS should address the poverty of buddhist masses, and take on the rulers of Sri Lanka who endorse mayhem in the country.

    I fully support Bodu Bala Sena and their actions. They really exposed the ‘cold war’ carried out by some ethnic political parties and communities in Sri Lanka.

    We as Sri Lankan Buddhists need to preserve our Buddhist culture and heritage. It is based on three basic themes namely; village tank or reservoir, village and temple- Weva, gama and Pansala). We want to preserve this Sri Lanka Buddhist culture for another 5000 years. We cannot allow our country to become another country with Arabic culture and law.

    If anybody argues that Bodu Bala Sena be banned, they need to request banning of all sectarian based political parties including some Muslim and Tamil parties.

      You have noble intentions. We all like to see Sri Lankan people live in peace and harmony all going about their day to day chores. But what did BBS do? they disturbed the peace. There are well educated Buddhist monks capable of leading this country, but not these BBS thugs who are uneducated but they think high and mighty about themselves, simply by political support and they wearing the saffron robes. Their arrogance knows no bounds, their hate speeches are most despicable and their famous lies and distortions on Islamic values amounts to bigotry, fanning the flames of communal violence. They should be unquestionable disbanded and jailed for inciting hatred and inducing violence. It is only then we can save our country. Or else we will see many such groups mushrooming out of nowhere, only need to be a Buddhist monk and then, no one will be safe to live in this country thereafter.

          It was the Sri Lankan army that carried out the war, not buddhist force army – BBS. As for me speaking up, my son served in the military. Kooragala belonged to Muslims, until the records were tampered and changed in the Archeological Department by BBS, just like the Buddha Saasana Ministry cannot make decisions on its own, without interference by BBS. On Dighavapiya, Muslim Minister Ashroff had challenged Soma Hamaduru (when they were both living) to base his accusation on facts and not on hearsay. If Buddhism was a fine religion and its adherents lived upto Lord Buddha’s teachings, then people become convinced it is a life worth living and will not convert, neither ethically nor unethically to any other faiths. Law college entrance exam had many Muslim entrees, and thus produced more Muslim candidates who passed out. But BBS gave it a communal twist to the results and made a huge brou-ha-ha about it. Talking of Law Exams, what is more greater than a Buddhist son of a ruling politician sitting for his Law exam, in an aur conditioned isolated room with a friend and passed out as a Lawyer. Mo BBS to protest against that? This is the state of affairs of this Great Buddhist Nation.

      Any hate group that goes around the country attacking businesses belonging to people of another religion, making hate speeches with lies and stupid remarks about spitting on food, who attack places of worship belonging to another religion, who incite the ignorant and pretends their religion is under attack, SHOULD BE banned. Now if you have proof and substantiated information Tamils and Muslim groups are resorting to such hateful acts, please share with the CT readers. Let’s BAN the well known culprits first.

        I believe all those who back MR for no reasons, do back BBS not considering any human values. No matter those in robes may have gone amok attacking any other sri lankans – fellow citizens with police standing as if they are paralyzed, they the people just behave stupid. That seems to TYPICAL TO our folks than any others. The very same people are hell bent on believing even any wrong doings be clearly shown to them as continued by the rulers. See, looking back the manner, how former CJ Dr SB faced the unprecedented humulative attacks of arranged CITY mobs by state ministers like Mervin ALONE for that incident,and the average reaction of the general public having watched all these on the National TV, though some radio senders CONVINCED the nation, not good enough yet to see that our people need a change.Imagine, how can the very same people back a fascist religious segments like BBS is not at all understandable to anyone if they are sane.

      Question raised by anti-BBS is why you guys (blind supporters of BBS) see no harm allowing BBS like RADICALS becoming a part of our life today ? In the past, not long ago, where the country fought its war against the rebels, risking everything, why such buddhistic groups remained silent and why is it become necessity today ?

      Instead, BBS and other religious folks could better join the nation building programs as had been in the past. Today, the youth crime rates of the country is becoming highest among the developing nations.

      As a Buddhist I can assure you that the BBS is not protecting the Buddhist culture. With their hate speech and the spread of racism and bigotry they are single handedly destroying the true philiosophy of the Buddha and poisoning naive minds in the process. If anyone is responsible for destroying Buddhism, it is the BBS. They have made me have second thoughts about showing respect to any Srilankan monk..I will however continue to follow and practice the true teachings of the Buddha, which have nothing to do with what the BBS is preaching. These are a bunch of hateful ignorant thugs wrapped in saffron robes. What an insult to such a great philosophy! How dare they!

      Sunil Dahanayake,

      I signed the petition to ban BBS. Why?

      It is really not BBS that should be banned. It is the anti-Egalitarianism, racism, discrimination and breaking of the Law. However, all these are practiced by BBS in the name of “Buddhism”. The Enlightened Buddha’s teachings have nothing to do with BBS, and everything to do with Mara-ism,

      The constitution guarantees citizens rights, and it is the duty of the state to keep law and order. They are not doing that.

      It is time, the silent majority wake up and let their voices heard.

      This is also critical for Buddhists, as Buddhism is being equated to Terrorism, and what are you going to tell your Children? Follow racist Buddhism?

      Even Monkeys have better morals than BBS. So, if these BBS monks are re-born in the next birth ( if valid Myth), they should be reborn as Capuchin monkeys, to learn about morality and Egalitarianism.

      Here is the proof.

      Capuchin monkeys reject unequal pay

      Frans de Waal shows us a task he gave Capuchin monkeys to see if they responded to a sense of fairness.

      Signed petition with comments.

      Comments:

      1. BBS, is Sinhala Buddhist Racism to continue the Monk-Ruler Hegemony using Monk Mahanama Myths.
      2.They prevent an Egalitarian Sri Lankan society being formed.
      3. It was the Sinhala Buddhist Racism, the core cause of conflict in Sri Lanka.
      4.Sinhala Buddhist Racist Monk Somarama killed the Prime Minister SWRD B in 1959
      5. What they practice is not Buddhism
      6. It is called Mara-ism, the Buddhism of the Devil.
      7. Lanka was originally, Animist, Jain and Hindu
      8. The original Natives were Veddah, Yakka, Naga and Raksha.
      9. King Ravana was Hindu, and civilized.
      10.There was an advanced civilization before Buddhism,
      11, Bali, Indonesia 94% Hindu and is peaceful.
      13, Unfortunately, Lanka became Buddist and violent with Buddist Monks and they infected some Sinhala people.
      13. Buddhism is the curse of Lanka, which Bali Indonesia escaped

        Well, you have forgotten the fact that your grandparents were Buddhists and then wanted to have intercourse with Portuguese, Dutch or English or Arabs.(Choose the right one). That’s how you and your religion started here.I suggest you learn our history a bit.Well you don’t know the fact that the owner of the “tooth relic” of Lord Buddha and monks have the right to rule this country,you bred ones have no right to insult religion of your origin which was betrayed by you and your ancestors for money and sex.

          Hamesh,

          My grandparents were from East Africa, 70,000 years ago, like yours. and ended up in Lanka. They had Animist, Jain and Hindu beliefs, before Buddhism,

          Buddhism is not any superior to any of those or the new ones you mentioned.

          See the 4 Noble truths,

      You can preserve the so called culture- See mahavamsa. How many kings were killed by their own family.

      I have visited these reservoirs, the villagers often do not maintain it. The canals are not cleaned. Farmer Societies are rogues who take contracts and play out. Please ensure that such beautiful concepts such as Weva, gama and Pansala exists before you want to preserve it.

Who against Bodu bala sena? Catholics who are very good in unethical converting and definitely Muslims are the most selfish in in universe.They all live in harmony here? Why here Muslims need burka? that is a sign of muslim terrorism.Our neighbours Malaysia is a muslim country.Do they wear Burka? no.So all minorities are gradually in a cold war to make sinhala buddhist minority which is an epic nightmare to you all.Remember, everyone else support BBS! We all Buddhists support it!But many don’t show it out.So keep your petition to your self and utter waste of time.When even GOTA support BBS so what you all can do?

      Buddhists monks belong in the temple and the only people who could do it are the buddhists people in this country. Not in parliament, not on the streets, not using foul language! How many buddhists go to the temple on poya? Hw many eat beef and consume alchohol on poya? How many wear inappropriate clothes to the temple? How many Monks smoke cigerettes in the temple premises at night? How many have wives living in western countries?? The list is endless but Why isn’t your precious BBS looking into these ????

      Put Your Home In Order First!!

        You may try to treat BBS or counter attack or whatever..Just try and see what would be the repercussions. Do you think all Buddhists in this country wait till that happens?

        I guess you are not a Buddhist & let me explain you something.Buddhism is a logical philosophy where lord Buddha showed the right path.Lord Buddha never brain washed our minds.He said as you sow sow shall you reap.Lord Buddha never imposed rules us to go temple like the rule people must go to Church on Sunday and mosque on Friday. It’s a choice.On the other hand,its not a sin even if you don’t got to temple on poya as long as someone does not commit 05 sins. Going to temple and stuff are called “Amisa pooja”.Instead,Lord Buddha insisted on “Prathipaththi pooja” mean is to devote your self and get rid of 05 sins.It’s again choice.The one who does will find good result and who doesn’t find bad results. That’s is karma.Making decision to go in the right path or wrong path is our choice.

        Lord Budda’s time too had people do all 05 sins.he couldn’t get all of them to follow him.Why? All are not same.So you are talking about smoking,drinking, inappropriate cloths etc..All is possible because there is no 100% perfect things in the world.It’s not something even BBS could correct.

        Right, Why the Church has something called confession? What is it for? You don’t need that if you are perfect? How many child-molesting,nun-molesting cases of priests are proceeding in west countries? Do you know that there are Muslims eat non Halal meat? you need proof? Do you know there are Muslim guys who drink alcohol? If you need I will let you know, cost I lived in Europe and saw in my naked eye.(They are my friends still).Therefore, would you clean the home first and let me know your people 100% free from confessions and all other sins and your home is 100% in order? We would definitely clean our home!

        Further, Just get 10 genuine Buddhist to sign this petition and let me know!

            The point all you are missing here is,bunch of non Buddhists perception is not about the perception of majority of the nation is what you all should understand.Just read few local papers.I will agree with you if you all get any few genuine Buddhists to sign this petition, I will eat my words.

      There is a search engine called “Google”. Type “Where can I buy Halal food in UK?” and you will get the answers. BTW Tesco and McDonalds’ offer Halal now in UK

      Malaysia is a Muslim majority country and obviously it doesn’t want to dictate how women dress unlike in Sri Lanka where sadly men who are supposed to spend time in temples meditating as lusting to see women stripped!

      You are the majority. Agreed, therefore you must have all the rights. Why do you oppose Tamil Eelam when they ask for it in the areas where they are a majority? ( I am no eelamist, this is for argument only)

      Ask your parents to explain this to you and hopefully they will put some sense into your head, if there is room for such things!

        Direct result of failure of UNP, LSSP and CP to forge an Egalitarian society.

        Then, the Sinhala Buddhist Racists took over, aka SLFP, and UNP.

        SLFP = SLBP. B for Buddhist.

        UNP = UBP, B for Buddhist.

        So SLMC was formed in 1981.

        Hamesh, there was a party called the Sinhala Maha Saba and the mahajana eksath peramua; both appeal to the Sinhala Buddhist racist ideology.

        Even today the mainstream parties comprise of many racists and have racism as their core ideology. Otherwise how do you explain why the UNP didn’t hold anyone accountable particularly the instigators of the 1983 riots?
        One doesnt have to speak of the UPFA.

    What BBS doing to other religious communities today will do to their own communities tomorrow with a new Buddhist Sinhala Sharia Law been introduced to society.

    Nobody knows what the BBS real aganda and intentions are but surely been influenced by Myanmar Wirathu’s preachings and actions with Western backing.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8ntWRFv8yY

    Therefore Sinhala Buddhists should also be concerned on BBS who could impose their own Sinhala Buddhist Sharia Law among their own Sinhala Buddhist community. They have kept their ultimate agandas in secret.

    Remember the west predict Asia to be the next Economic super power.

    Be aware of the coming danger.

    Hamesh, you write all nonsense. Typical BBS bullshit. This country belongs to all who are born here, parents, grand parents, great gandparents, ancestors all Sri Lankan, irrespective of what religion they come from. First Sri Lankan, then Sinhala Buddhists, Sinhala Christians, Sinhala Muslims and Sinhala Hindus. You cant take away or deprive some one their birth rite, and say you are Muslim, you belong to the minority, don’t ask for any rights, just take what is on offer. This is after living together peacefully for so many years. What has gone wrong with you guys. Effect of the 30 years of war? or its success emboldened you to think ‘we are the greatest and mightiest’ and indispensable and indisputable guardians of this soil? Remember that you cannot take it (whatever it is that you are craving for) with you when you die. Let it be Deegavapi, Kooragala, Dambulla or Anuradhapura. Living peacefully with everyone will only enhance goodwill. We Muslims are also beneficiaries of the war and stake a claim for its success through providing advance information thru radio intercepts breaking their advantage of the language barrier. We ask nothing of it, except to let us live in peace. We don’t need you now including BBS, SR and JHU to erode our friendship with the ordinary Sinhala people with whom we have links long before stupid BBS riff-caffs invaded the scene with their rhetoric.

      Well, What right you don’t have in this country? Who has taken the birth right away? Every country has a history and just because of someone is born here, one shouldn’t try to alter the history.Why don’t you try to make Britain and US all products halal? there are enough born there? Why not? You of course know the repercussions.You all just can’t put the label racism and work on hidden agendas.So you want us to keep shut and wait when you claim all our Buddhist heritages like kooragala, Dambulla, Deghawapi etc? Can we do the same in an Islamic country? One wouldn’t have the freedom for religion if not Islamic.You may know better than me what happens in middle east, Africa etc.Do you know one of the oldest Buddhist university in the world? Nalanda? which was destroyed by Muslims. Our monks didn’t fight cos they were enlighten and Muslims slaughtered them brutally.What’s happening in the world now.9/11, Boston bombing, London reason killing, recent school shooting in Africa, who does this in the name of religion? Terrorism go hand in hand with a religion? We have enough reason to be worried about Muslims from the history, and present both.So we are up against it.We wouldn’t shut up and wait like in the past.We are up against it! Who wanted to make Whole Sri Lanka Halal and why should I eat Halal being a Buddhist and living in a Buddhist country? You can tell me to do so if I live in Middles east or Pakistan.Then you talk about war..How many Muslim Soldiers died in the war? I don’t need any vague explanations..Just give me the statistics..

        Hamesh, did you know Halal is worldwide? Just search (google) Halal in UK or any country where there are significant Muslim citizens. Did you know that nothing can be imported to Muslim countries without Halal certification? Halal is a worldwide standard just like our own SLS, or ISO standard. All Sri Lankans working and earning salaries in Middle Eastern countries eat Halal meat and enjoy Halal products, whether they like it or not.

        You have made so many accusations against Muslims to be the reason for trouble is many trouble spots of the world. It is true, but they just happened to be Muslims, but they unleashing this violence on their own accord as individuals. The religion Islam itself does not preach hatred nor aggression towards other religions. Just as much as what is happening in Myanmar, where Buddhist monks are killing Muslim civilians. As we all know, the Buddhist religion is most peaceful, but look what these monks are doing, setting Mosques on fire, killing civilians, promoting violence and espousing hate through speech in Temple gatherings, while the international community is watching with concern. This makes us Muslims to get concerned whether BBS/SR and now a new group RB (Ravana Balaya), will pick up a few lessons from them on ethnic cleansing. You need to get with reality (Yataarthaya), and not live in the past (Atheethaya).

    Face is the key identity of a person. With the face cover you loose your identity. We have the right to identify who the person moving around us. Besides covering the face is a humiliation to all female humans irrespective of cast creed or religion. No male have to cover the face apart prior to identity parade.
    But the key point here is moving in public places with the face cover doesn’t cause any harm to any particular group or community. Its only an immature personal choice for me.
    But what the BBS does is a humanization to Buddhist Philosophy and the great life of Lord Buddha. So in the name of real Buddhists The BBS should be BANNED.
