BBS Adds A New Cause To Their Agenda

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) in their latest antic has shed their attention on depleting Tamil and Hindu populations in Sri Lanka, attributing the situation to narrow agendas carried out by certain elements and pledging to help address the issue of the Tamils and Hindus being socially marginalised.

BBS HinduOrganising a media briefing yesterday to announce their tie-up with a Hindu organisation to solve issues faced by Tamil and Hindu populations in Sri Lanka, the BBS has stated that it is not the ethnic conflict that lasted close to three decades that resulted in the drop of Tamil and Hindu populations but certain narrow agendas propagated by certain civil society organisations, Tamil diaspora groups, media and certain countries that have made interventions in the guise of helping to solve the ethnic conflict.

“It was not the ethnic clash that has resulted in the drop in Tamil and Hindu populations that we presently observe,” the BBS has noted adding it is the clever exploitation of the disagreements between Sinhala and Tamil communities during the conflict period and the period leading up to it,by certain elements.

Quoting examples for this situation, they had pointed to the decreasing Tamil and Hindu populations in the East – particularly in the areas of Trincomalee and Vavuniya while cleverly disguising the accusatory comments on the rising Muslim population in the areas describing it as the ‘systematic and opportunistic exploitation of the void created by the fleeing Tamil population during the war’.

BBS General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara speaking at the media briefing yesterday had heavily criticized the Ministry of National Languages and Social Integration headed by Vasudeva Nanayakkara stating it has failed in its duty of promoting reconciliation and social integration and is only releasing mere statements under the influence of external groups.

He had stated that Nanayakkara has only been engaging in futile activities such as ‘flying kites’ at Galle Face in the name of developing national harmony – referring to a recently held kite festival organised by Nanayakkara’s Ministry under the auspices of President Rajapaksa.

“We have been compelled to take measures to ensure national unity in Sri Lanka due to the failure of these ministers and their ministries,” he had stated.

In a bid to help Hindu and Tamil populations address their concerns and grievances, particularly of being socially marginalized, the BBS yesterday announced they are collaborating with the All Ceylon Hindu Federation adding they will be using the well connected networks of the ACHF to raise awareness among Tamil and Hindu groups on particularly issues that affect them.

    Actually that is a jolly good idea from our Gaanu 5 Bebadu Naanasara. Earlier Gaanu 5 Bebadu Naanara suggested that all pure Sinhala Buddhists be allowed to marry 5 women to increase the pure Sinhala population.

    Now he can slightly change his plan and suggest out of 5 women 3 pure Sinhala Buddhists and balance 2 from Tamil Hindu.

    Also he should advise Grease piya to introduce a new law that Muslim families can have only one child to achieve his goal.

      Looking like BBS is onto the Christian Project and expose the project, that has been going on since 1505 when the Portuguese Landed, and still continues. Thee was the Catholic action, and the 1962 Coup, and Mettannda was exposing that. Then the Western Christian assisted Tamil Struggle due to Para-Sinhala Buddhist Racism and Chauvinism, as a result of the Sinhala Modayas attacking the innocent Tamil citizens.

      Read, Philippines, East-Timor, South Korea. The Christian Fundamentalists are converting the Hindus and Buddhists at an alarming rate by bribing, that has been going on for so,me time.

      In order to deflect the attacks on Christian Fundamentalists, the Norwegians and American Christians funded and helped BBS to start attacking the Muslims.so, the Sinhala Modayas now attack the peaceful Muslims in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho learn?

      Why?

      Christians have a hard time converting Muslims, because they claim their Prophet Jesus, to be God, which Muslims do not accept.

      Read Age of Reason by Thomas Paine, Published 1795.

      Read Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, and Galileo and Bruno.

          “Even Muslims have been and are up to mischief, trying to convert people by force or cunningness (like bribing).”

          Yes, everybody converts to various degrees. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Mormons, etc. The Only ones who do not try t convert are there Jews, because you cannot be a Jew unless your mother is Jew.

          Lanka , Land of Native Veddah as NOT Buddhist. They were converted and gave the Hegemony to the Monks, and we are still suffering. It is not about Buddhism. It is about Monk Hegemony.

          The others are Agnostics and atheists.

          It is like Marketing and market share.

            It is one thing deciding to follow a religion out of one’s own conviction and not by other’s coercion and another trying to convert or proselytize by force or deceit. Historically, it is the Christians and Muslims who have been indulging in coercive and conniving conversions and proselytizing. “Monk hegemony” is a relatively recent political development, more a reactive response to “Church hegemony” and “Mullah hegemony” historically present the world over.

        The Hindu duffer, has been fooled and he has highly taken up the hoax after swallowing Gota’s dead rope.

        Gandasara looks as if he was shat in his hat, knowing that he is fooling himself.

    I heard for the first time something no other monk has ever uttered. Gnanasara said Prabakaran’s cause was acceptable but not his violence.

    Either he is the most accepting monk I have ever known or its just too good to be true. I suspect the latter given his track record with Moslems.

    In addition, the guy never insults TNA Sambandan, although he regularly attacks Hakeem.

    He is not what he appears. He is fishy because his intolerance is inconsistent.

      Because BBS was funded by the Norwegians, the Tamil Diaspora and the Christian Americans. That is part of the Contract.

    What is this All Ceylon Hindu Federation? Who is this person in the picture and in the video. From his accent, it appears he is of recent Indian origin from the Hills. There have been efforts at Buddhist-Hindu cooperation in the post-1983 period begun by distinguished people from both sides of the divide but interested people made sure they do not flourish. No Tamil grouping should align themselves with Galagoda Gnanassara and his fascist organisation – that is identified with everything evil about Sinhala Buddhism. Gnanassara is trying hard to gain some credibility to his shattered and dirty image.

      Well said Kettikaran,

      The man in the picture could be Dr Swamy’s
      representative. Existing Hindu associations nor Hindu religious educationists in SL never took part in politics,unlike other religions and the Tamils are proud of this until today. They should in fact rein in this unknown nor unheard of all Ceylon Hindu Federation and ensure that Hindu Religion remains supreme without political influence.

      Lord Buddha is a great preacher and he practised “Ahimsha” and Hindu
      religion needs no assistance from BBS as Lord Buddha himself was a Hindu and this religion existed more than 5000 years.

      Fathima,
      Long ago,the Batticaloa Obstetrician said that muslim women menstruate only once,at puberty,and never later, due to the continuous successive pregnancies until premature menopause.
      The village of Kattankudy three miles from Batticaloa was the most thickly populated area in sri lanka and maybe the whole world,and also had the highest fertility rate.
      Women were never seen by male doctors – thus by none,and died of malnutrition and intercurrent illnesses.

      Now,many muslims fortunately believe in family planning.

    The All Ceylon Hindu Congress has sent the following letter with reference to news item that appeared in the newspapers and websites: We have been receiving enquiries in respect of news reports and website news of what have been said by “All Ceylon Hindu Federation”.

    We are unaware of existence or commencement of any organization by the name “All Ceylon Hindu Federation”. We have no connection whatsoever with them. It is improper for them to seek to act as the voice of the Hindus.

    All Ceylon Hindu Congress has not only been functioning as the Federation of Hindu Religious Associations and Temple Trusts in Sri Lanka since 1955, but also as the umbrella organization and as the voice of the Hindus of this Country.

    This organization (“All Ceylon Hindu Federation”) has also levelled unwarranted false allegations such as “Bishop of Mannar is converting Thiruketheeswaram Sivapoomi into a Christian Poomi” against the Bishop of Mannar who has always been raising his voice for Tamil people. We condemn those allegations.

    We also wish to point out that the Hindus need not join Bodu Bala Sena to protect Hinduism. – http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/51626-achc-condemns-acfc-allegations.html

    All Ceylon Hindu Congress (ACHC) in a statement to the media claimed their ignorance of a federation which represents the voice of the Hindus in Sri Lanka. The statement signed by the ACHC President Kandiah Neelakandan and General Secretary Mutiah Kadirgamarnathan said they were unaware of existence or commencement of any Hindu Federation as carried by media. – See more at: http://www.nation.lk/edition/latest-top-stories/item/32698-hindu-congress-claims-ignorance-of-a-hindu-federation.html#sthash.LhNvC4gJ.dpuf

    Tamils or Sinhalese, Hindus or Buddhists do not need BBS to bring this essential unity among this people who stood by each other during thick and thin of the collective history of both people.
    Be it in the war of Ellara and Gamini or joint venture at resisting alien/colonial past masters Tamils and Sinhalese had fought beyond the ethnic divide and enjoyed their respective heritage.
    Even Tamil Chetties like Bandaranaike and Jayewardene had stood by Sinhalese to get the best for Lanka.
    Before during the assimilation that took place in the North and South, many did not identify themselves as such and genetically it is impossible to identify along pure ethnic lines.
    However the oppression on ethnic line is a reality and cannot forgo such campaign until a sustainable protection mechanism replaces mass annihilation of collective community be it Sinhalese, Tamil and Muslims and unimpeded state building exercise that will provide “living space” for all.

Then US attacked Taibans with the Northern Alliance. The was the same with the US, Iraq and Iran Triangle! Once Iran was neutralised, US attacked Iraq! When the LTTE joined all Tamil groups to attack government the other Tamil groups did not realize that they would be anihilated once they (LTTE became strong!

    “Even Tamil Chetties like Bandaranaike and Jayewardene had stood by Sinhalese to get the best for Lanka” It is not clear if this comment is also part of the ACHC. We would like a little more clarification here. There is some evidence the Bandaranaikes came from the Tamil
    Neelaperumal descendency. There is speculation that JRJ has some Muslim blood in his own ancestry. There is evidence to suggest the Jayawardenas used Tambimudalige in their vasagama.

    Will better informed readers in these columns please comment.

    These guys are a cancer to the society. Cancerous plants, will feed on healthy tissues of other plants for their survival. Similarly they need healthy support from others to survive by pretending to be the supporters of other minorities, just to curry favor the northern vote. Their national leader is Gota, and he is the “national leader” they are going to present for the elections. Since Gota is not an appointed minister he cannot be appointed as the prime minister(legally) so he has to to enter politics to do so. And they are hoping MR is going to survive before for a presidential elections. The real reason behind this these star analysis(public show)is based on the fact MR’s health is taking a dive towards south(possible prostate cancer in remission). So this ploy is to molly coddle Modi in India(who is pro-Hindu). Attack on Muslims to appease Israel to garner support from America. Two birds in one stone that family clan get to steal their businesses and land. Coming months will be quite interesting few months where we can clearly see what future holds for its sane people. As many locals are not aware of what is going on, the country holds a bleak future if they could these sinister plans to work.

    While I cannot verify the claims, I believe that no one in Sri Lanka can credibly claim racial purity (Tamil, Sinhala, Burgher, Malay etc.). We are all admixtures of multiple gene pools – as it should be given the location of our island in the middle of a heavily trafficked sea route for 3 millennia!

    The idea of racial purity (either genetic or socio-cultural) is a myth. People like sex, and most find people who look different from them alluring :)

    The modern day cultural identities we have constructed, especially in response/consequential to European colonization of our lands, have lead to much strife not just in Sri Lanka but other countries as well (e.g. Hutu vs. Tutsi in Rwanda, Christian vs. muslims in Sudan, Kenya etc.).

    So the reality is we have people who think they are “pure” one thing or another (much like Hitler), and given enough power and motivation these elements can destroy human lives using the notion of “cultural preservation”. While such racial purists are in the extremist minority, allowing them to wield political power is very very dangerous (think Taliban or ISIS). We should not allow that to happen in Sri Lanka. IF we should have learnt anything from our civil war, it is to NOT use race and religion to gain and hang on to political office.

      I need not educate Sinhala Buddhist the vast majority of Sri Lankans are Sinhala-Tamil. Internationally recognised and respected Archeologist Prof. Sudharshan Seneviratne confirms both peoples are from the same Gene-Pool – i.e. from nearby India. We look similar too. Burghers and Malays came from outside this loop. Most Muslims fall within the Tamil category too although some of their current leaders, in today’s political context, find it profitable to claim they came from Arabia, the Maghreb and so on. At other times, they agree the bulk of them came from coastal South India.

      I am no great fan of racial purity. But I do believe Tamils and Sinhalese have their separate cultural norms. In today’s context it is best they retain their separate ancient identities while living together in peace and amity respecting the “unity in diversity” ethos.

    BBS strategy is revealled in todays Daily Mirror. –

    ‘The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) today said that politicians were attempting to alter the diversity of population in Sri Lanka by backing the resettlement of one ethnic group in a specific area ignoring others.

    It also accused that Industry and Commerce Minister Rishad Bathiudeen was influencing Government officers in Vavuniya to evict Tamils from their lands to settle Muslims ignoring President’s orders.

    BBS Chief Executive Officer Dilantha Vithanage charged that their allegation against the Minister was true and they already have the evidence to prove that the Minister was seizing lands by force.

    “Minister Bathiudeen was also involved in forest annihilation in Willpattu National Park. It seems he is not giving up. We can prove that the Minister is influencing Government officers to evict Tamils from lands in Mullative, Mannar, Vavuniya and Kantale to settle Muslims,” he told a news conference.’

    Recently BBS tried to intervene in the Haj quota issue purely to create divisions within the Muslim community. Now setting up a group of Tamil Hindus against Tamil Christians and Muslims is designed to divide the Tamil speaking community.

    No doubt such a strategy of divide and rule will find much favour with the ruling clan as it keeps the pot on the boil and distracts public attention from the misdeeds of the regime. It is strange that there are fools who will fall for the antics of these vicious racist facist.

    Look at the picture again.

    The so called Tamil Hindu is dressed in a saffron colored shirt. Hastily made for the occasion just like the hastily created Hindue Federation.

    Of course Gnanasara is amused. He is a pasmaster in manipulating the not so bright Sinhala masses and here he is launching to manipulate the hapless Tamils as well. I wonder if the Tamil masses will take the bait.

    What a joke. The fox claiming friendship with chickens.

    Islamic terrorists have warned to bomb world’s largest Buddhist temple. There is a possibility ISIS + SL JIHAD can attack SL and Indian places too.

    There is a wider probability that the Islamic fundamentalist terrorism could attack Borobudur Temple in Indonesia, as how they attacked Bamiyan Buddhist statues in Afghanistan. We highly appreciate that the Indonesian authorities have taken prompt measures to tightened security in and around Borobudur temple. The BBS believe that the activities of the ISIS is not limited to middle east. Therefore, the relevant authorities should take immediate steps to tighten security in major Buddhist religious places here in Sri Lanka and in India as well.

    If SL government cannot contain the Islam threat India will have no choice but to do it India’s way in the island.
