BBS And Wimal Weerawansa’s Big Mouth

By C. Wijeyawickrema

One would expect Wimal Weerawansa (WW), the minister, to be different from chracters such as Mangala Samaraweera, SB Dissanayaka, Vasudeva or Amunugama when it comes to Sinhala Buddhist affairs.  If he is not acting as a reasonable person then one would wonder whether his brain is in his head or his rearend.

He has done so many good things such as supporting MahindaR in 2005 and thereafter, but he has also done so many foolish things. Going to Egypt in August wearing a three-piece suite can be fulfillment of a childhood desire not knowing how hot the summer in Egypt. Attacking America without sorting out facts is like what Norieaga did in Panama or Sadam Hussein did in Iraq and got killed at the end. We know in present days ministers are so dum and stupid. For WW to come out of this category he must first study an issue before he make public utterances.

I refer to what he said about the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) and his silly answer to when he was promptly challenged by BBS. WW said that Norway was using BBS to make attacks on the Muslim community in Sri Lanka. His answer when confronted was that it was all in the AsianTribune website.

Asian Tribune website did not say BBS is an agent of Norway or BBS got money from Norway. It was true that those who later formed BBS went to Norway and met LTTE agents just like BBS leaders met Tamils in America when they visited USA recently. WW must be a fool to think such acts by Buddhist monks are anti-Sri Lankan acts.

WW must understand that BBS never attacked Muslims. WW must understand that BBS pointed out Taliban and Wahabi behavior in Sri Lanka aimed at bringing Sharia law to Sri Lanka and force it upon non-Muslims. WW’s government has failed to take action on such acts due to its greed to keep some Muslim leaders happy and BBS happened to come to know Halal game by accident. BBS is not formed to work on halal-haram matters. BBS is formed to fight for Buddhist rights ignored by WW’s government.

BBS is based on the Lichchavi principle of Buddhist India. Just like Buddhism says “Come and examine” (not come and believe), Buddhists say come and discuss. This is what BBS is doing.  WW should have met with BBS and discuss his concerns so that he will not become a public joke at least in the minds of reasonable thinking people in Sri Lanka.

May be WW does not know that Norway was funding hundreds of Buddhist temples. Does he think Norway’s Erick Solheim is doing that to seek Niravana?  WW is jealous of the sudden upsurge of BBS in the Sri Lankan political climate, taking WW and his government to the task. Only Gotabhaya Rajapaksa realized the gravity of BBS power. For WW some Muslim votes in Colombo may be a life and death issue but BBS world is a different world. WW should peruse the BBS website and avoid making a foolish confrontation with BBS as BBS is reasonable and WW is not.

    Irrespective of anything WW said or did, it would be difficult for any man to wear a ‘three piece suite’! Furniture is not very comfortable clothing in hot or cold weather!

      Nuances either of spelling or thought is beyond this posturing self-righteous writer.

      I wonder whether he even gets what you said!!

      He has avoided commenting about Right Speech (a Buddhist fundamental)because his hero, the johnny-come-lately Galabodda thero is a loose cannon, who shoots his mouth off at every turn using gutter language.

      Norway, and the Christian West: A Conspiracy.

      “I refer to what he said about the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) and his silly answer to when he was promptly challenged by BBS. WW said that Norway was using BBS to make attacks on the Muslim community in Sri Lanka. His answer when confronted was that it was all in the AsianTribune website.”

      There is a lot to what Minister Wimal Weerawansa is saying.

      1. Norway funded BBS, ChristianFundamentalist money to Attack Muslims.

      2. Christian Fundamentalist Strategy.

      First they tried to Break Up Sri Lanka. Now funding BBS.
      Why did BBS go to USA. Conspiracy with US Fundamentalist Christians?

      Who knows? Buddhists beware of the Christian Fundamentalists from the West.

      Minister Wimal Weerawansa is a true Sri Lankan Patriot, who ids exposing Norway and the Christian West. Sinhala Buddhists beware.

      lankaweb.com/news/items/2013/05/18/western-role-in-the-bodu-bala-sena-bbs-of-sri-lanka/

      “The western NGOs that existed in Sri Lanka so far have been headed by Tamils, Christians, or noted international wheeler-dealers. If the BBS can become a Southern Sinhalese NGO that can be manipulated by the West, an immediate objective of the West would be achieved.

      However, some of the leaders of the BBS may prove to be artful individuals who may not necessarily tow the line of the West, just as the Taliban NGOs created in Afghanistan by the West some decades ago morphed into anti-Western agents. However, the Taliban had enough middle-eastern financial backers when the West withdrew its support. In contrast, the BBS will dry up and loose steam, as soon as it looses its financial backing./

      Western role in the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) of Sri Lanka
      Posted on May 18th, 2013
      by Anura Alahakone, USA
      It is well-known that US has taken a lead role in combating, and sometimes fostering Islamic extremism in many parts of the world. Its support for the Taliban in Afganistan by arming them against the Soviets is well known. The US has also supported Islamic groups to create tension is some African states to counter other tendencies.

      In many of these moves, and in some of its UN lobbying, the US uses third parties to cover its hand. Norway has figured prominently as one of the not-so-hidden hands of Western foreign policy in this regard. Canada and Britain have figured in extraordinary renditions of prisoners who were whisked away for torture by US agents operating in other countries.

      In Sri Lanka, Western policy was directed through the secessionist politics of the Tamil Nationalism. This provided a stage for global capitalism to move in, with Ranil Wickremasinghe and Chandrika Kumaratunga willing partners. However, this agenda was thwarted by the rise of the Rajapaksa government which exploited the growing anger of the majority of the country that realized that the carpet is being pulled from under them, with the sovereignty and decision making in the country passing into the hands of Norway, Japan, India and internationally funded NGOs.

      Rajapaksa used a policy of dividing up the opposition and offering perks to woo support, to bring most of the Sinhala polity as well as the Muslims behind him. Using a large cabinet to shield the weakness of his minority government, Rajapaksa won a war that had been declared `un-winnable’ by the West which funded the Tamil Tigers, and harboured individuals like Anton and Adele Balasingham who openly supported programs declared by the UN to be crimes against civil societies.

      Western analysts realized that until and unless the Sinhala polity is divided, the Western program cannot go ahead. The Tamil nationalist program thrived in the last three decades only because the Sinhalese were divided equally between the United National party (center right) and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (center left). The US keeps track of Islamic groups and knew of the Wahabist-Islamic incursions in Sri Lanka, and the growing resentment against it among certain nationalist sections of the Sinhalese.

      The strategists in the Pentagon invoke their standard formula for situations like this. It lines up its defense establishment with the defense establishment of the target country (Sri Lanka), and gets one of its henchmen (e.g., Norway) to support the anti-Islamic radical groups at a variety of levels. This has been done not only by the so-called “one-shot” support given to the BBS, but also by giving financial aid to selected Buddhist temples. This is the standard approach to buying up political support where there is none.

      In effect, the West needs a Buddhist NGO in Sri Lanka, just as it needed an Islamic NGO in Afghanistan against the Soviets. However, here it is playing a more subtle game, check-mating the Wahabi Islamists in Sri Lanka, gaining support from a section of Buddhists, while alienating and diminishing the power of the Jathika-Hela Urumaya that led the vanguard against Norway at Mavil Ara, and actually fielded Buddhist monks at Sri Lankan elections. Thus the rise of the BBS fits in very well with the strategy of the West.

      However, some members of the Rajapaksa government, as well as some leaders of the Buddhist political program are clever strategists. They have realized that they too can use (the covertly western-supported) anti-Islamism of the BBS to their own advantage in winning back some of the assets that have been encroached upon by Islamist expansion. This is of course a popular move among the Sinhala nationalist merchant class which is prepared to compromise on Buddhist teachings for a bit more of Buddhist hegemony.

      Sri Lankan Buddhists do not have a strong moral figure like the Dalai Lama who successfully maintained the Tibetan effort against China on the high moral road for many decades. Now, the Dalai Lama has retired from that struggle and how it will spiral onwards is any-body’s guess. The Dalai Lama has expressed his sadness about the events in Sri Lanka and Burma, but it is easy to dismiss him as being mis-informed. Indeed, he is not informed about these events per se. He is making his statements based on the general principles of Buddhism that demand that every matter be solved by discussion, compromise and compassion, without violence. That is the high moral road that the Buddha indicated to the Lichchavi kings in regard to governance, some 26 centuries ago, with his seven rules.

      The BBS is a militant group which in effect implies that Buddhist principles have to be re-enforced by strong-arm tactics. Some church fathers as well as Western anti-Islamists who have been irked by Islam’s inroads all over the world are delighted by the new developments. They don’t have to openly sully their hands!

      The withdrawal of Muslim support from the Rajapaksa government is also attended with glee by Western strategists who noted how Rajapaksa had used such support in UN fora for thwarting international sanctions against his government.

      The western NGOs that existed in Sri Lanka so far have been headed by Tamils, Christians, or noted international wheeler-dealers. If the BBS can become a Southern Sinhalese NGO that can be manipulated by the West, an immediate objective of the West would be achieved.

      However, some of the leaders of the BBS may prove to be artful individuals who may not necessarily tow the line of the West, just as the Taliban NGOs created in Afghanistan by the West some decades ago morphed into anti-Western agents. However, the Taliban had enough middle-eastern financial backers when the West withdrew its support. In contrast, the BBS will dry up and loose steam, as soon as it looses its financial backing.

      Here we have to look at the JHU that has become a dormant entity when its financial support dried up with the JHU becoming a compliant partner of the Rajapaksa politics of accommodating all and `shaping up’ problems instead of solving them according to the rule book.

    Who is foolish? Is it WW? Is it BBS? Is it President Rajapakse?
    According to this writer Gotabhaya Rayapakse is the only man who understand real BBS and real Buddhism.
    So, who does the underground world works like White Van abductions, attack on Islam and mosques, Christian churches and Hindu Temples and businesses? Some time back we heard of Ghosts attacking women and running towards military camps and disappears. Who has the ability to discover these unknown mysteries? Can Lord Buddha shed light on these mysteries?

      Who is foolish? It is the SL general public or more specifically Sinhalese Buddhist majority. WW and BBS just use this stupidity. Then GR/MR use WW and BBS …
      Gota has brains to understand that BBS movement can be used to bring forward this Sinhslese Buddhist stupidity
      I can’t understand ultimate goal Gota wants to archive by going throug this path?
      Perhaps, it could be a simple reason (as said in e-news) promoting Halal issue can generate a larger market share for imported canned beef and other imported meat products. Purely motivated by a business idea ..

    Oh god. Met LTTE agents :O and still the owner of the article is questioning if its anti srilanka or not.

    Though BBS has been speaking about taliban behaviour they haven’t been able to prove any of those with proof but the issue is the intelligence of SL which was able to capture ‘KP’ an interpol fugitive is not able to capture the so called talibans of SL. Either there is no taliban’s in Srilanka or the capture of KP is a drama.

    BBS never attacked muslims :P Didnt they force Sinhalese not to rent land to muslims and not to visit muslim owned businesses. Isn’t this called attacking?

    Halal game by accident LOL. The so called game has been active for several years transparently without any under game though BBS fund source is still unknown

      Just a puzzle. Normally when Norway supports someone they will want to keep that fact as a secret and not openly admit it. Also the receiving party will also try to keep it as a secret knowing the negative impact it could have. IN THIS CASE HOW COME BOTH PARTIES HAVE COME FORWARD AND ADMITTED THE RELATIONSHIP..

    This is a ridiculous article in which the author is desperately trying to whitewash the racist bigoted BBS as being a reasonable group. As a Sinhala Buddhist I take great offense at the hate and divisions recently preached by the BBS and their actions speak much louder than anything their website may say. It is also very offensive to me to have seen the recent disgraceful behaviour of some of the so called Buddhist monks in the BBS, who behave like dirty politicians or thugs. I have always been proud to defended Buddhism for being a clear philosophy which cannot be misrepresented to justify poor behaviour and acts of hatred but the BBS and their followers have proven me wrong. I ask that they first and foremost educate themselves on the true teachings of the Buddha before they self appoint themselves as the saviours of the Sinhala Buddhists.

    I suggest Mr C. Wijayawickrama pulls his head out of his rear end and look at the facts of what has been happening over the past few months.

    “ww must understand that bbs never attacked muslims”-so what does the writer call the attacks BY A MONK on the fashion bug? Friendly play?

    “bbs pointed out taliban and wahabi behaviour in sri lanka and aimed at bringing sharia law to sri lanka… “-where is evidence of such events? There isn’t any evidence because it doesn’t exist!

    “bbs is not formed to work on halal-haram matters” – then why is it that it was the bbs that was instrumental in pushing for the anti halal campaign and caused such a big fuss about halal products?

    This writer’s arguments are baseless and reading that article was a waste of precious minutes ill never get back. I suggest the writer wakes up from the orange veiled outlook that he has and actually converse with the muslims to understand what really is going on.

      Writer is the best example for those who blindly hang on with BBS in SL.

      He seems to be not seeing how BBS attacked the muslims, how those pseudo monks vandalized the pvt cameras in the presence of country^s police.

      And he has no idea about the leader of the BBS, whose records made it clear that he should be a criminal if not now in the recent past. However the bad language Ghanasara used to barked at police was almost that of MERVIN and WEERAWANSA. How come seelawantha monks to use such uncivilized rude langauge should be criticised by sociologists, psychologists and university dons…..

      BBS was also at the slaughter house in dematagoda trying to POLICE .. They had to eat huble pie after the officers who issued necessary documents vouched for the authencity and the challenge posed by the owner of the slaughter house that he will sue for the loss due to decay of meat… its available on youtube.. IF the writer wants he may have a GOOD LOOK and also at the video in which Galabodeatte speaks of Hambaya’s and the language and hatred he has towards muslims. Ironic taht he(galabodatthe) wants to have dialouge with LTTE reps ONLY in Norway and USA and not in SL..

    This writer should have been blind and deaf to just include that

    “WW must understand that BBS never attacked Muslims. WW must understand that BBS pointed out Taliban and Wahabi behavior in Sri Lanka aimed at bringing Sharia law to Sri Lanka and force it upon non-Muslims”.

    Now IC and masses in SL are clear that BBS^s emerge has nothing to do with protection of buddhism in SL, in contrary to that it has already tarnished the lanken peaceful buddhism. Dalailama^s sudden message came not because of the buddhist monks in any other countries, but because of the bbs^s activities against muslims and the majoritarian peaceful buddhists in the country.

    Sooner or later all these will come to the surface. How can BBS monks finance their trips to the STATES if NORWAY OR ANY other potential western organisations have not donated them the dollars ? This writer and the like minded folks would never see realities with their eyes. There are significant masses in the country – whose behaviours are almost like that of this writer.

    I never thought WW or anyone else would raise this – but even those who consider WW as just a BIG MOUTH in the cabinet to clown the silence crowd there, in this case, his rise is I think reasonable.

      Has Weerawansa surrendered his pistol from his JVP days?

      Has he apologised to millions of innocent people who suffered between 1987 and 1991?

      Who is financing his party and his lifestyle, the Hindians or Norwegians?

      Why didn’t so called intelligent Sri Lankies teach him that National Anthem is sung in more than one language in some countries and it was not joke.

      Why did he stop his farce on to death act of clowning?

      Whom did he meet when he visited USA a few years ago?

      Is there an ideological difference between Weerawansa and Somawansa and if so what is it?

      In case if you find it difficult to tackle above concerns please contact K.A Sumanasekera who would be able to respond with his Colombian Periphery Inhabitant analysis model.

      Its a fact that your ex foe Norway supports them financially thus you both are best friends now. Its a fact that BBS is fathered by both MaRa and GoRa anf the mother being Champika and Gammanpila. This GananaSatan was the one holding the lamp when this illegitimate child BBS conceived.

    Lichchavi principle? just stop taking law to your hand. There is a parliament under a constitution to take lessons from Lichchavi’s if the country wants. They pass laws and those laws should sit above everybody. What BBS has done is the opposite of what Lichchavi’s tried to achieve even in feudal India. Just stop monkeying around with harmony among ethnic and religious groups in Sri Lanka.

If he manages to raise this kind of questions, non-BBS but pro MR sympathisers will want Buruwanse to stay in power further. He should be ready to answer to them. He is now crying further tremoring the parliament – as if a mischievous child would do – asking to remove police and land powers from provincial councils.

    the new approach is rather apparent:
    1. list all the declared evils around
    2. pick the the most effective to continue with – most effective in terms of political gains
    3. now associate the remaining evils to the opposition.
    4. congratulations! you just got the opposition/ suppressed defamed by dumping the defamation of one of your former allies on them!!!

    note: the same was being done by certain other individuals (malinda et al) by disowning BBS to trick the public: that racism is yesterday. but this individual has carefully evaluated the political worth of BBS against those run-with-the-hairs-and-hunt-with-the-fox type of vigil attending (on an invitation by their muslim friend :D only to stereotype and criticize fellow vigiler in a supposedly sophisticated way) english speaking western attired individuals that try to sell racism on the internet.

    I like to call this WW as MW. He does not have any brain with a broad vision. All his talks are based on what is available in daily Sinhala news papers. He talks from A to Z on any subject and trying to show that he is an expert on anything.

    However, he is also very cunning man. He and all similar characters in the government are now realizing that their places are taken over by the BBS. Their main worry is the popularity of the BBS. BBS managed to talk to the hearts and minds of the ordinary sinhala buddhist people. This would be a real challege to the people like MW. That is why these days he is talking about the NE elections and 13 amendment.

    I appreciate BBS for exposing the double standards of these jokers.

    Minister Wimal Weerawansa,

    You are absolutely correct. Hon. Minister Wimal Weerawansa. You come from a very good pedigree Weera- Wansa. You are pointing out a discrepancy and outside funding by a foreign country to destabilize the country and bring disharmony among the people.

    “BBS should challenge Dilantha Vithanage of the BBS and the Norwegian Embassy in Colombo.”

    Well said. Vithanage is trying to hide under the robes of the non-Buddha Teaching Following Mara Monks.

    A crowd, or rather a BBS gang went to Norway, All expenses paid. Did they go there for King Olav Sardines? Did they go there for swimming in the cold fjords? Did they go to ski n the mountains?

    BBS, Vithanage and the Norwegians should fess up. Was there additional Western Money Involved.Did they divert some terrorism money budgeted for Syria given to BBS Monks?

    These are very valid questions from a responsible government minister.

    Minister Wimal WeeraWansa, you are a true patriot.

    Remember, Buddha-Rakkita and Somarama Theros of 1959 how they killed Prime Minister in the name of “Buddhism”, or rather to maintain monk hegemony.

    Monk Mahanama Myths, the curse of Lanka.

    I would not be surprised if Norway is supporting BBS, even discretly.

    Back in May it was reported that every rape assault in the city of Oslo in the last five years had been committed by a person with a “non-Western” background – a Norwegian euphemism for Muslim . Now it turns out that there have already been twice as many rape assaults in Oslo so far this year as there were in all of 2010.

    http://europenews.dk/en/node/63520

    In Sweden, blonde Swedish schoolgirls dye their hair black to avoid harassment from Muslim classmates. Things are not much better in Denmark. We already know about Holland from the cartoon riots.

    Obviously, not every member of the Muslim community is responsible for such outrageous behavior. Many are peaceful, law-abiding citizens. However, the statistical discrepancy in criminal offenses cannot be ignored as a simple anomaly, given that the vast majority of immigrants to Scandinavia are Muslims.

    BBS is doing an excellent job in informing the Sinhalese populace of the dangers of Islamic fundamentalism. However, as C. Wijeyawickrema points out, there is a limit to how much they can do. It is up to the Government to take the final step. Starting with voluntary relocation of Muslims to Muslim-majority nations. After that, forced deportations, such as Israel is doing with its illegal African population.

    Colluding with Muslim politicians is dangerous. As I have stated many times on this website, if Muslims become a majority, or something close to that, they will ask for a seperate state.

        You should learn to write in standard English, before using multiple ids. Lack of coherent sentence structure not only diminishes any sense of humour, but also makes you appear to be a first class buffoon. Also, try to be more creative. Might I recommend “Russel Peters”, if it’s not haram.

        There is no need to normalize here. The majority of rapists in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway are Muslims.

          They send people to luxury prisons for 7 or 8 months, if it’s a rape, and a few years, if it’s a murder. It is a system based on Western, not Islamic, values of compassion. The only thing your Islamic brothers understand is Sharia Law; chopping off limbs for stealing and beheading as punishment for murder.

      Lester,

      “Back in May it was reported that every rape assault in the city of Oslo in the last five years had been committed by a person with a “non-Western” background – a Norwegian euphemism for Tamils . Now it turns out that there have already been twice as many rape assaults in Oslo so far this year as there were in all of 2010, that is because of the defeat of LTTE, and a good part of the Tamils probably ending up in Norway, frustrated, going after Norwegian women, because most of the Tamil women were in Sri Lanka refugees camps, and they wanted an outlet. War business was over for the LTTE rebel “soldiers” or “terrorists”.

      Regarding True Buddhism as preached by the Enlightened Buddha, is very ethical and not full of racism, and is not a religion. Statutes were not needed. It was a personal code of discipline. A ode of discipline was formulated for the Monks, called Vinaya.

      The BBS, had nothing to do with Buddhism. It is Mara ism.Following Mara. Mahanama Myth Sinhala “Buddhist” racism.

      Minister Wimal Weerawansa, you are a wise man, not to be distracted by deviants. If you want to response, tell them, one response only, “Learn Buddhism First.”

      Are these guys really “Buddhist” Monks?

      If you know your Buddhism, they do not fit the mold of Monk.

      Even Venerable Dalai Lama said so.
      The Los Angeles Buddhist Vihare did not want anything to do with these “Monks”.

      This so-called Budu Bala Sena,

      1. Begins as a Movement
      2. Becomes a Business ( Politicians, thugs, business interest)
      3. Ends up as a racket.( Norway, West)
      The wise Venerable Dalai Lama and many others are seeing this. However,as in any racket, like in the Ponzi schemes, many become victims.

      What true and wise Buddhists need to do is protect the True Buddhism from these racketeers.

            Leela Girl,

            “Can you give an explanation for how and why Buddhism has vanished from its birthplace, India and yet it is being saved in Sri Lanka to date?”

            Very simple.

            Don’t be fooled by the Myths of Nirvana, Rebirth and Sansara, and the all night piriths and Bodhi Poojas that are being sold to you by the Monks, for their own self-interest.

            In India:

            1. Enlightened Buddhas Parents were Hindu and after the initial flash of Buddhism, the Indian masses went back to the equilibrium position of Hinduism, with the Brahmin Monks on its hierarchy.

            2.Buddhism offered more or less what Hinduism was offering, less the Gods of Hinduism, and the Caste system.

            3. The Myths of Nirvana, Rebirth and Sansara can only go far, and was not permanent.

            4. The kings did not fully embrace a system and install a Monk hegemony, for the Monks to come between the people and the King.

            In Sri Lanka:

            1. The people were initially, Animist, Jain and Hindu. Yes they were Native Hindus, Sinhala Hindus and Sinhala Jains.

            2. Devanam Piyatissa and his ancestors, including Mahasiva, Pandukabaya and others were all Hindus and Jains.

            3. After the gradual introduction of Buddhism, the people converted to Buddhism. Monks established themselves, and got in between the people and the kings. The kings had to pay homage to the Monks. The monks and kings collectively controlled the people, and the Monks sold the Buddhist Myths of Nirvana, Rebirth and Sansara.

            4. The best example, is the Racist Monk Mahanama Myths of Sinhala Buddhism, Sinhala Buddhist Dharmadeepaya. What Happened to Sinhala Hindus? What happened to Tamil Buddhists?

            5. The current Sinhala Buddhist racism of Budu Bala Sena and others is a manifestation of this. The kings were replaced by the politicians, and they are playing the same game in the 21st century.

            The problem Sri Lanka has are the monks, and Buddhism. India was lucky to have got rid of this baggage.

            Religion is the opium of the masses-Karl Marx, how true in Lanka.

            Besides, there is no such thing as Sinhala Race. There is a Southern Indian Gene Pool.

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

            There is a Table There that shows the gene diversity and original location of the genes.
            SOUTHERN INDIAN GENE POOL:
            Mediterranean 4%
            Northern European; 2%
            Southwest Asian” 58%
            Southeast Asian 35%

          “yet it is being saved in Sri Lanka to date?”

          When an animal is killed, stuffed, and mounted on a wall as a trophy, it may have been saved, but it is no longer animal. Buddhism in SL has been stuffed and mounted.

            Yeah David, Agree with your comment.

            Today, even buddhist monks are not the same we learnt to know decades ago in the country. This I notice at least once a year. Looking at the manner how Gnasara himself behaved in a meeting in Kelaniya later, I myself puzzled not being able to realize whether he is a monk or just a lay man who is just a disguised monk. Even on the latest video – he behaves as if he could be no different to a pettah steet monger. Please check it on the video – he seems to have no respect at all. No SANWARAKAMA.

        Dear Amarasiri,

        If you mean to say that Sinhala-Buddhism has more to do with Sinhalese culture than actual “pure” Buddhism, then you are probably correct. Maybe a few forest monks are practicing the kind of Buddhism that Buddha prescribed, in its fullest form. So, we have to look at Sinhala-Buddhism from the cultural side also, and understand the role played by the monks. They have been advising the people and the ruler for the last 2500 years, through foreign invasions, wars, etc. Now that almost everyone has access to education and more sophisticated forms of technology, there is a growing chorus to sideline these monks.

        One thing about the monks: they are not opportunists. They represent the best interests of the Sinhalese people, especially at the village level. That is why every ruler has turned to them for advice. Some politicians are opportunists and will use the monks for their own purposes.

        There is a danger in blindly adapting capitalism and other practices of the West. The way that you see the West now is somewhat misleading. There was a process of transformation, involving massive exploitation of women, children, and slaves within the domestic country itself. Exploiting resources of colonial countries. Furthermore, one should question the economic system itself. Assigning a monetary value to every single commodity, from diapers to the tombstone. Entire nations subject to debt slavery, gun violence, and imperial wars. This is what happens when people follow their own ideas, for their own greed, without forming a proper consensus within the larger society itself. Clearly, there is still a role for monks to play in Sri Lanka.

      Unlike Colombians and WOGs and co, C. Wijeyawickrema is a true patriot. And, Galabodaaththe Gnanasara has come forward to give confidence and self-assurance for Sinhala Buddhists who are otherwise being condemned as war criminals by separatists and their backers. Of late, portraying themselves as true Buddhists, Colombians and WOGs have been condemning aged old customs and values of Sinhala Buddhist as ‘Sinhala Buddhism’. They have invented ‘Sinhala Buddhism’ and attributed wickedness to it to demoralize Sinhala Buddhists. But neither this ‘true Buddhist’ lot have ever uttered a word to condemn racist Tamil Nadu thugs attacking our monks and pilgrims nor halaal being rammed down our throat. But, they kept talking about troubles of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar again to condemn Sinhala Buddhists. Surely, this is a planned and deliberate assault on Sinhala Buddhists if not a coordinated one.

      Surely, Islamic system of governance cannot be compatible with democracy? Muslims believe; the Koran has nothing but the word of Allah. And Muhammad is the prophet of Allah. And Sunnah is the life of Muhammad. And Shariah or Islamic law is based on the Koran and the Sunnah. So, in Islamic system, nothing stands above Allah.

      When in doubt, Islamic clerics interpret it. This is where the problems come. Koran professes hate against unbelievers. All practising Muslims, I mean both moderate type and terrorist type read such verses regularly. Moderates argue such verses have to be read in context of the then prevailing situation; they mean the time of Muhammad. But for pious Muslims like Mullah Omar and Bin Laden has no such context constraints. For them, Koran has the word of Allah and it meant for all times.

      Let me give an example: Koran 9:28 says “O you who believe [Muslims] the Mushrikun [polytheists and unbelievers in Allah and the Message of Muhammad] are Najasum [impure, defiled]. So let them not come near Al-Masjd Al Haram [the Kaaba in Mecca] after this year”. Now that verse is being interpreted by both moderate type and terrorist type not in context but as valid throughout. Accordingly, even at this day, leave out Buddhists, Hindus and etc who doesn’t believe the ‘One God’, I mean Allah Yahweh or Lord, but no Jew whose ancestor first found that Yahweh or a Christian who follow Son of the Lord who Muhammad accepted as a prophet is allowed to come near Al-Kaaba, the Muslim Holy shrine in Saudi Arabia or even enter Mecca.

      Like all the Muslims the world over, aim of Sri Lankan counter parts is the same. Their plan is to establish Shariah law here. Otherwise, why should the UNP Trinco District Parliamentarian S.M. Thawfeek placed a notice in the mixed section of Sri Lanka Gazette dated 19/04/2013 under no 767 to inform the general public that he intend to present two acts in the parliament to form two Arabic schools namely ‘Ealvaniyah’ and ‘Abu Hurairah’ for the purposes and for ‘the common good of the people.’ 1) To train and produce Theologists (Wahhabis) to help guide the society to live under Islamic Shariah law. (emphasis mine) 2) To safeguard Islamic religion.”

      In my opinion this is a very small move of a very large plot. The question is: When Shariah is not codified in Sri Lanka, what’s the use of compelling the public at large to learn about Shariah law? I say this promoter and MP, Thawfeek and those who are readying these two schools have ulterior motives. Their aim is to change the mindset of Muslims in this country in favour of Shariah laws. Otherwise, why train Mullah to help guide the society to live under Islamic Shariah law which is not in force here. It is clear that aim of these guys is to pressure Sri Lanka government to codify Shariah law at least in parts of the country where Muslims are the majority. We have read such demands in write-ups during RanilW’s UNP regime. Add Bantu land concept of Tamils we will have ‘One country many systems’. That’s exactly most critics of this government here want.

    No smoke without fire. BBS involving with Norway and former LTTE elements reveals some dsiparity in BBS policy. Blow hot with Muslims and blow cold with LTTE left overs? Dilantha Withanage formerly of WVIF Excecutive Director 2006-2008 is considered the link between Norway and BBS. As per Asian Tribune

    Before organizing Bodu Bala Sena, majority of the Buddhist monks in the outfit and Mr. Dilantha Withanage were in Norway.

    The trip to Norway was arranged by Mr. Dilantha Withanage and by Mr. Arne Fjortoft of the Worldview International Foundation.

    According to Norwegian Ambassador for Sri Lanka Ms. Grete Løchen, “Ven. Galegodatte Gnanasera Thero contacted the Sri Lanka based organization Worldview International Foundation in April 2011 to explore the possibility to meet with representatives of the Tamil Disapora in Norway to look for ways and means to create a common policy to solve political problems regarding the ethnic challenges in Sri Lanka. As a result of extensive planning, it was agreed to arrange a Reconciliation Conference in Norway from 20-26 October, in partnership with NOREF.”

    She also added, “The Norwegian support to this project was a one-off payment.”

    Therefore, according to Ambassador’s statement the visit to Norway was funded by Norway and the Buddhist monks were in Norway from 20 to 26 October 2011.

    The same format is now applicable to the US visit? BBS seems to be dabbling in international right wing facist movements which bears close watching.

    Number one LTTEer in the Diaspora is ruling the roost in Solheim territory.

    Gangendran and Premachandran are openly threatening to get the West to give them a SGA.

    Colombo Vigils have already started.

    And Gnanissara sending emmisaries to Norway to do deals.and organize attacks on poor Muslims who copped as much the Sinhalese.

    It is a well known fact and admitted by BBS openly that NORWAY is funding their activities. Clearly what NORWAY failed to achieve through LTTE now they are trying and some what progressing in achieving their sinister goals through BBS.
    BBS are the MODAYAS here. Selling the country for personal and short term benefits.

    Unfortunately BBS is made up of Drug addicts and Drunkards. Where there is no moral and lacks basic education, these so called members of BBS are vulnerable for exploitation. Therefore, they are exploited by a foreign hand and also by local politicians for their individual gains and motives.

    What is really a concern is why is that NORWAY which is thousands of miles away from Sri Lanka are so interested in the small country’s well being. The motive remains in their other operations like spreading the missionary activities in Sri Lanka. There are many such foreign reps walking house to house every day which BBS or others fail to notice.

    OSLO is a city filled with LTTE cadres and sympathizers. They will try their best to destabilize our country and to create friction at every turn of opportunity.

    We Sri Lankans, mainly the Sinhalese Buddhist, Christians, Tamils, Muslims and Hindus must coordinate and join hands to eleminate and destroy such initiatives of Foreign hand and BBS activities. We suffered enough during the last 35 years and this is the time to stop all these nonsense.
