BBS: Cobras Are Not Pets, They Belong To The Jungle

By Harishchandra Lokumanna

Wisdom is finding out that a cobra is deadly; without first having to lose one’s life.” 
― Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Confessions of a Misfit

The events of 6 December 1992, which led to the demolition of the Babri Mosque rewrote the history of modern India on communal lines. It was apparent that top BJP leaders like L K Advani and the then UP chief minister Kalyan Singh, as well the former Congress PM, P V Narasimha Rao, were aware of the planned demolition, according to a sting operation by the Cobrapost , an Indian news website and television production house, known for its investigative journalism. Well! Reference to BJP and the Cobra in this paragraph takes my memories to our Dharmadweepa, the tiny Paradise Isle in the India Ocean where the shamed racist outfit The BBS too has chosen BJP and the Cobra symbol to charter their future political direction. Thus their much despised hate campaign has now been given a political platform where they are attempting to enter parliament even by poisoning the soul of the country.

Cobras are typically opportunistic hunters, chowing down on whatever prey comes their way. They slither through the wilderness silently, following their prey until they are ready to attack. Most cobras hunt at dawn or dusk. Cobra bites are mostly fatal. Metaphorically too, BJP too are vicious spitting Cobras and is bound to be fatal to the well-being of this nation if they are not dealt with even at this stage. They follow the law of the jungle where they truly belong. BBS in BJP Cobra skin and other hate groups which profess racist, sectarian and majoritarian ideology are extremely fatal if not identified and consigned to where they belong. Sooner the better! The Sri Lankan voters did catch the Cobra alive and ‘caged it’, by voting out the dictatorial MR and rejecting communalism and racism on January 8th. Now they have an ideal opportunity to take it away from, without releasing it into, human habitation on August 17th.

BBSEver since the Tigers were militarily defeated in 2009, BBS allegedly with hidden funding from foreign sources and began to emerge as the ‘Buddhist Face of Terror in Sri Lanka , spreading poisonous ideas and ghost stories about Muslims being the next bogeymen inflicting damage to our ‘Sinhala Buddhist culture and heritage. This well-orchestrated hate campaign fell exactly in line with the global Islamaphobia which casted many suspicions about their sources of funding and their strategic plans devised with Wirathu – ‘the Buddhist Face of Terror in Myanmar. ’ Both of these saffron brigades had similar colours and interests, and with their main target becoming Muslims, Sri Lanka once again began to be on the limelight on the international arena, again for the wrong reasons. Sri Lanka thus continued to suffer from social and religious disharmony despite the end to the bloody war and mayhem.

It is really scary to note that the Cobra candidates are leaving no stones unturned in spreading hate through disgusting speeches. At least UPFA candidates are hiding their hate for fear of losing minority votes, although in one of the MR rallies, they were bold enough to display some distorted national flags (Sinhaley flags). The nation will not forget how some UPFA stalwarts such as Gammampila and Dullas carried such flags at one of their protest rallies and claimed that they did not know what they were carrying. Aren’t these hate speeches and displaying of distorted national flags punishable crimes even under the existing penal codes; never mind still hate speech not being banned?.

In fact, I was listening to the obnoxious hate speech by BJP’s Anuradhapura candidate Susantha Ranmuthu Kumaranasinghe on social networking sites and I felt ashamed as a Sinhala Buddhist, to say the least. In this video, this racist in a Cobra T-shirt addresses the voters as Sinhala Deshayey Sinhalyani! And disparagingly refers to Tamils and Muslims as Demalun and Marakkalayin. He quotes distorted statistics on population growth and relates naked lies about the sacred book of the Muslims and defames their Women’s dress code. Worst of all, he incites Sinhala people to violence by telling them that time has come to take up ‘arms’. Isn’t this against the law actionable under the Penal Code and the Election Laws as well? Apparently this incident has been brought to the attention of the Police and the EC and hope that quick action will be taken to prevent more of such ‘cardboard Sandos (heroes)’ cropping up in the guise of addressing people on election platforms. Today, social networking sites have become hotbeds of racism and hatred against the ‘other’ and therefore quick action is warranted to arrest this virus.. There are other racist posters too asking the Sinhala people to vote only for Sinhala candidates.

These are instances of culture of meanness and political opportunism. Racism and prejudice against the ‘other’ being naturally and historically high on their agenda, BJP cannot be expected to be champions of national reconciliation and amity in any case. Knowing how the Sri Lankan voters acted on 8th January, the general fate of the BJP is known. However, it should be ensured that none of the Cobras enter the portals of the parliament. Our people should use their votes to consign these Cobras to the jungles/ dustbins of history and stand up decisively against Racism.

It is interesting to study the racist behaviour of the BJP politicians in India too to realize the true colours of these political opportunists who fish in troubled waters. We saw an Indian BJP minister Niranjan Jyoti, who told an election rally in New Delhi that they had to make a choice between “a government of the followers of Ram [Hindus] and a government of bastards, (referring to non-Hindus”. She was allowed by PM Modi to keep her job after the election. Another Minister Union minister of state Giriraj Singh also sparked a major controversy by targeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi in racist remarks, questioning whether the party would have accepted her as its chief if the colour of her skin hadn’t been white. He embarrassed the BJP during last year’s Lok Sabha polls too by saying that those who opposed Narendra Modi should go to Pakistan as there was no place for them in India. In 2013, A BJP MLA of Himachal Pradesh also kicked up a controversy by suggesting that Naga and Gorkha regiments should be deployed in the state to check the growing menace of monkeys and pigs.

This the Sri Lankan electorate should decisively weed /vote out these viruses from the national politics and vigilant as President Obama, responding to the wave of protests and racial tensions across the country in 2014, said “When you’re dealing with something as deeply rooted as racism or bias in any society, you got to have vigilance, but you have to recognize that it’s going to take some time,” “You just have to be steady so you don’t give up when we don’t get all the way there,” he said.

In my view, Tamils and Muslims too should stand up against racist politicians who are seeking their vote in the name of communal politics; SLMC asking for a separate district for Muslims and TNA once again opting for narrow racist politics for political expediency. It is heartening to see Muslim intellectuals and even religious leaders appealing to the Muslim voter to vote on national interest and to shun sectarian politics. It is up-to us as Sri Lankans to keep up the pressure and not give in to narrow racism and cheap tactics to arouse communal feelings in people and disrupt harmony prevalent for centuries. Having learnt bitter lessons in history, we, from the majority Sinhala Buddhist community should give the lead and be extra vigilant not to allow Gnanasara/ BJP type viruses to spread the incurable diseases of creating hatred against the other communities for personal gains and vested interests. As a nation , we can go forward only if we stick together as one nation without any racial or religious differences. If we pamper these social viruses – BJP or other hate groups, and allow them even by implication or silence to devour the conscience of our nation and divide us into ‘us’ and ‘them’, then time is not too far where more Cobras will proliferate at the gross-root level and the future of our nation will be doomed for ever.

        The bigger picture which is hidden in the BJP/BBS campaign is the Zionist arm which has nurtured the idea, selected correct candidates and funded it through various sources one being the Gota (Goon) through Defence Ministry ON THE ORDER and UNDER THE PROTECTION of MAHINDA.

        The Racism on the lines of Anti-Muslim did not crop up suddenly. It was hatched by the British long time back when they designed the WAR ON ISLAM way back in 1800/1900s. That was the period they started destroying the Muslim State spanning a vast areas of the Africa to Asia through ME began.

        They deployed Lawrence of Arabia, the spy who went from door to door feeding hate on the lines of Nationality amongst the Muslims during the Khalifate. Then the Arabs made to fight the Turks and every other Muslim was made to hate each other on the lines of ethnicity and religious sects…something which was never a problem before the evil British had their hands on.

        Coming to the 1900s the British Royals (Originally hailing from German origin and having a Jewish genealogy) their main aim was to destroy Islam and which is going on up until now through the hidden hands of puppet handlers Rothschilds, Rockerfellers, Du Pont, Bush and British Royal bloodlines.

        In India and Sri Lanka, when they made sure that the next rulers after the gaining of independence from the British be from the chosen guys hailing FREEMASONIC fraternities.

        So, Nehru was a Freemason who clearly planned the destruction of the Muslims and which is still carried on today in India. Then the Sri Lankan arena was being given to the Sinhala Buddhist elites under the Sinhala only project promoted by the Anagarika and which was secretly introduced by the Freemasons/Occultists H.P.Blavatsky and Olcott.

        H.P. Blavatsky’s Theosophical Society ( A crypto-Jewish society made to convert all the religions to the Zionist order) went to the more Satanic figure after her death to Annie Besant/Leadbeater team. The Luciferian/Satanism which is the main religion of the US/UK/EU/UN.

        In the UN the main printing company that does all publications of it is named as LUCI’s Trust (Earlier it was called Lucifer Trust). The New Age which is promoted under Theosophy gives full backing of the ideas of Evolution and the many Racist ideas found in the writings of Blavatsky to the modern society expecting an AVATAR.

        The entire UN system runs under this Satanic system which is spreading the message of hate against the Islam as a religion as it is the only religion they finds it difficult to tame unlike the Hinduism, Christianity and Buddhism.

        In India Hinduism is now 50% transformed as a force to destroy Islam and they have many agenda in the line for maximum oppression against the Muslims and which is planned by Tel Aviv and executed by Mossad.

        In Sri Lanka, the Sinhala Only ( 100 year) project coming to a ripen stage with Mahinda waging the war on Islam with full force and out in the open. This is a war the many Sri Lankan govt., carried out as a secret agenda by enforcing one policy after another with each successive govt., coming to power taking it forward without any problem.

        That’s why any govt., that comes to power will not touch the Racist elements by law apprehending them for their murderous crimes. They are nicely made to disappear under the carpet once they come to power.

        Elley Gunawangsa is a criminal monk who has blood in his hands and who is free and go about living a peaceful life with connections in the higher places and participating in political stages.

        JHU and BBS is the other recently born avatar from the same umbilical cord connection in the Buddhist hierarchy. The hidden factor is that almost all the SL govts., had strong connections with the Khazarian Jews who are running the world today. Gota and Mahinda made strong connections with the Mossad and training of the armed men with brutality as the only principle in warfare was a result of this connections and co-operation.

        The Zionists demonstrated their evil design of War on Islam (War on Terror) in recent times by inciting Bosnian War, Chechen war, Afghan War, Iran & Iraq war, Gulf War, Pogroms between ethnicities in Sri Lanka/Burma/Central African Republic/ Thailand….etc. There are 100s more…

        JR, Mahinda were all became the pawns of the Zionists and as a result of that connection they were made to create wars that dragged the country to bankruptcy and which was good for the Zionists as they would incite and supply arms to all the parties involved in the conflict. This is an art the Zionists for centuries with WW1 & WW2 as classic cases.

        Coming to the main subject, Sri Lankan state/politicians still have not given up Sinhala Only and they have considered it as an important element of the rule by the majority and it will be switched on and off whenever it is necessary.

        The Zionists have many wars on the world population. One of the main war is EUGENICS (Controlling population to 300 million) Which means nearly 6-7 Billions people will be killed and maimed by Mass Murdering Wars. So, it is always a necessity to back racists in various countries on false flags by inciting other races mainly against the Muslims. Because, Muslims are thought to be dis-united among themselves and the Main Muslim countries and its political leadership is run by puppets with allegiance to the Zionist project (US/UK/EU/UN).

        The Zionist’s other main focus is to control the Indian ocean region to check India and China. So, the Zionists need a conflict in Sri Lanka again. So, Mahinda and his gooks came in handy. They gave Rajapakse’s IMF money, Green Card, funding and training of racist elements (JHU/BBS/Ravana) etc. With another conflict brewing with the Muslims the Zionists may pump foreign aid money to the war and to plunge it again the destructive paths.

        The Vaccination program is already making its toll on the children of all communities in Sri Lanka and worldwide. So, with the President Maithree on the driving seat, as a former health minister, he will not go against the Vaccination (Poison) program designed to weaken and then kill them their future generation of Sri Lanka.

        So, as a diverting the attention of the public they invented BBS and trained them to point to the Sinhala masses the Muslims are out there to destroy the Sinhala future generation which is untrue. And the real truth is that the Vaccination has caused babies to die and contract Cancer/Leukaemia/Diabetes and all sorts of diseases which was never present 50 years ago.

        This is why the BBS always defends the Israeli murders on Palestinians. They openly support Israel and have no problem in obtaining VISAS to visit any Zionist country (Western). Now they have taken the acronym of other Zionist proxy who are equally racist and anti-Muslim…the BJP of India.

        They named their new political party as BJP to recognise the covert support lent by Narendra Modi via RAW to bring back Mahinda. So, Indian BJP and Sri Lankan BJP has many things in common like Anti-Muslim/Islam and Pro-Mahinda.

        Almost all the Pharmaceutical Industry in the world is owned and run by the JEWS…the Zionist Mafia whom they have EUGENICS as their main program.

      Mahawansa is an Insult to Buddha.

      Mahavamsa- An Insult To The Buddha!
      December 21, 2013 |

      By Sharmini Serasinghe –

      Caution- The following is more suitable for the broad-minded and the wise. Others are kindly advised to pass!

      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/mahavamsa-an-insult-to-the-buddha/

      “Wonder if ours might have been a wiser, and a more ‘humane’ society, had our ‘ancient’ history, been based on Aesop’s Fables, instead of the Mahavamsa. For if not for the Mahavamsa, the Sinhalese may not have been endowed, with the reputation, of “Sinhalaya Modaya (The Sinhalese are Fools)”!”

      “In this “wonderland” called Sri Lanka, and in this day and age, one still comes across ‘academically’ educated, and supposedly intelligent ‘Buddhists’, but sadly lacking in wisdom, who reverently believe, that the Buddha walked out of his mother’s womb, and walked seven steps, while lotuses blossomed, under his feet!”

      “These very same supposedly educated, and intelligent ‘Buddhists’ also believe, that the enormous indentation, resembling a footprint on a boulder, at Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada to ‘Buddhists’), to be that of the Buddha. This would be in keeping with the conviction that the Buddha, was as tall, or perhaps even taller, than the Avukana Buddha statue, which stands above 40 feet (12 meters) in height!”

      “Then, there is the ‘Dalada Maligawe’ in Kandy; most Buddhists believe, the tooth relic housed within, belonged to the Buddha. Some adorn the ‘tooth casket’ with mounds of gold jewelry, fervently believing, that they would earn merit, to the value of the gold they offer. The thought of donating the value of this gold, to feed and help, the poor, sick and the needy, that would be far more meritorious, never cross their minds”

      “There hangs a controversial question, over the authenticity of this ‘sacred tooth’. But then again, to those ‘educated and intelligent Buddhists’, devoid of wisdom, if the Buddha, was taller than the Avukana statue, and had a giant footprint, as on Adam’s Peak, then this ‘huge tooth’ could be his!”

      “However it does not matter, if the tooth is over-sized, belonged to the Buddha or not, because he the ‘wise one’ asserted, that his followers must not revere, nor worship, any part of his physical self, nor idolize him. Had the Buddha wanted otherwise, he would have left not just a tooth, but his entire skeleton, for his followers to worship.”

      “The annual Esala Perahera, in Kandy, is yet another case in point. This colourful and spectacular ‘parade’ of the ‘tooth relic’, atop a magnificent elephant, is nothing but an ego-boosting exercise, of small minded men of yore, and now, a tradition of small minded men of the present. The ‘Esala Perahera’ therefore, is no relation of Buddhism!:

      “Then there are also those ‘Buddhists’, who on Full Moon (Poya) days, make a bee-line draped in white, to the temple, to ‘pray’ to ‘God Buddha’. They piously recite the ‘Five Precepts’ and other Buddhist verses, as in ‘praying’, facing a perceived image, of the miracle performing ‘God Buddha’. The Five Precepts- the basic code of ethics that the Buddhist laity, is required to abide by, cease to hold any value, beyond the temple gates!”

      “They offer flowers, to clay and stone images of the Buddha, and light oil lamps, as it is an idée recue; believing by doing so, one earns enormous merit. Little do they understand the significance, of such customs; they fail to connect the similarity of flowers and the oil lamp, with their impermanent life – ‘anicca’.”

      “Then they also go on to bathe the ‘Bo tree’ (Bodhi Puja), with pots of water, thereby encouraging tree-rot, expecting the ‘holy’ tree’ under which ‘God Buddha’ attained enlightenment, to bestow merit upon them to. During trying times, unable to accept their ‘karma’, they once again flood the ‘Bo tree’, expecting deliverance from their misery.”

      “When this unique ‘brand’ of Sinhala/Mahavamsa-Buddhism fails to deliver, they next make a bee-line, to a Hindu kovil, break coconuts, praying for miracles, as well as cursing and damning to hell, fellow human beings. Then off they go, to a Christian church and light candles and then, to Sai Baba or even a Mosque (I have no idea what they do there). At all these places, promises (vows) are made, to various Gods, on a quid pro quo basis. Some, even resort to animal sacrifice!”

      “Then, there are also those who believe, that the Mahawamsa was authored, by the Buddha himself!”

      “All that the Buddha asked, of his followers, was to lead a life according to his noble teachings. But this, most find so hard to do, especially the ‘simple’ minded, Mahavamsa-Buddhist!”

      Mahavamsa Lies and Deceit

      “Perhaps nowhere in the world, might one find, this strange practice of Buddhism, other than by most Sinhalese; for it is neither a religion nor a philosophy. It is a unique ‘culture’, passed off as Buddhism, in Sri Lanka!”

      “Who and what distorted the Buddhist philosophy, in Sri Lanka? I say firmly, the blame must be laid fair and square, at the feet of Mahanama thera, and his ‘book of Buddhist tales’- the Mahavamsa. For, it deals mostly, with mythical and supernatural tales of so called, Buddhist history, with some borrowed from the ‘Mahabaratha’ and ‘Ramayana’.”

      So, in summary, Sinhala Buddhism and Mahawansa are insults to Buddhism and Buddha.

      BBS is extending this insult, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

      Looks like the Para-Sinhala , the Paras from South India, as shown by the DNA in their bodies, have gone mad, and BBS and Mahinda Rajapaksa Racism Is an example. No wonder the Average IQ of Sri Lanka, comprising 70% Sinhala Buddhists have an average IQ of 79.

      Reminds me of my school days when we had to write a hundred lines to instill discipline into our lives. It sure did mold our character to what we are today.

      These BBS guys are opportunists who are getting ready to make a political plunge by creating a false paranoia of a fast diminishing race heading towards extinction, and its only them as the Buddhist revival Force that can save the masses and prevent it from happening. Once inside Parliament, they will create havoc and cause immense problems for a new government to implement its planned agenda to benefit the whole country including all of its citizens.

      They will make the government to dance like a puppet on a string, similar to what is happening in Myanmar, where Ashin Wirathu calls the shots and the government just goes along and implements his warped agenda. It is Wirathu who decides if the opposition candidate and Nobel Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi is worthy of being voted into power. Wirathu aka ‘Burmese Bin Laden’ is hated for his mistreatment of Rohingya Muslims who have been alienated and made refugees in their own lands. Imagine something similar happening to us as Muslims living in Sri Lanka at the hands of this murderous bunch of BBS monks getting hold of power. They may not do it to the Tamils as big brother India will destroy them in no time. But it will be Muslims who will ultimately be at the receiving end of their injustice. Lets hope sanity prevails and these guys lose and lose badly enough to even lose their deposits paid to enter the fray. The King Cobra must not be allowed to even lift its hood, nay its head, I guess its all the same.

    A well thought out summery of racism in Indo-Lanka, touches Burmese theory of Buddhism as well. The nation has been cautioned. It is up to the relevant authorities to act;Isn’t this against the law actionable under the Penal Code and the Election Laws as well? Apparently this incident has been brought to the attention of the Police and the EC and hope that quick action will be taken to prevent more of such ‘cardboard Sandos (heroes)’ cropping up in the guise of addressing people on election platforms. it is not easy even at this low ebb of activities, even the portals of parliament have to be shut up for these poisonous snakes – for the sake of meaningful reconciliation. Electoral reforms should be main key for this

    Buddhism is much more a philosophy that a religion and it is the most logical I know. I wish the misguided would stop attaching divine superhuman attributes to it. Lord Buddha would be turning in his grave. The Bikkhus of the BBS mould and their supporters are already destroying his teachings by their hate speeches. The silent majority that allows this hatred are equally guilty. Voting them out would be a splendid start.

      What is this Sinhalese Buddhism is a philosophy thing, not a religion?????.. Socrates and Plato were the greatest philosophers or logical thinkers lived 100~200 years before Jesus… Socrates and Plato were great logical thinkers, but can we even compare their influence to human civilisation to Jesus and his teachings, religious belief system in the last 2000 years ….
      Why these Sinhalese Buddhists want to insult Buddha saying that his teaching is only a philosophy like Plato but not a realign or belief system??? General public are fools, Buddha said that too and refused to teach… Somebody told SBs that Philosophy is higher in the ranking system than religions??? Holy cr..p
      Usually religions are NOT logical, at least the parts teach to general public or to the majority.. Deep teachings of Islam, Hinduism, Christianism, Buddhism could be analysed philosophically, many have done, lot of books are available on all if you want to read..
      If somebody (any SBs) want to read philosophical reasoning of deep Buddhism, read Nagarjuna’s work (500-700 years after Buddha)… then tell us whether you like philosophical analysis of belief system…

    BBS is not trying to protect Sinhalese or the Buddhists but only using them for their political purposes only

    Buddhists(and probably0Hindus) have never , in their history persecuted people of other faiths. Protestants hanged and persecuted catholics in England in the 18th and 19th century. Muslims from 600th century have and are still waging their war against all other religions in the name of the religion.
    Let us talk about how Christianity gained a foothold in Sri Lanka, why so many NGOs are Chritians or Catholics, who funds these NGOs, how the rexcent tsunami victims were subjected to religious conversion by foreign missions and NGOs. We need an open public debate of the well orchestrated malign influence of the foreign religious extremist organisations on this country.

        Amarasiri fails to understand the difference of religious faith and race. Budhists no where in the worldhave waged wars or resorted to bribery, or financial and materia inducements compared to catholics and Christians all over the world. The mulims have used terror and war and political power of the state to persecute other religions.Most NGOs in this country funded by neocolonial regimes in the West andextremist church organisationsto systemetically convert acre still active,. That is why India banned all NGO from the country.
        It is no coincidence that the majority of correspondents and columnists in Colomo Telegraph arein the payroll of these foreign organisations

    BBS unfortunately is reflection of the sinhala buddhist in security with no proper leadership. Dependent on political leadership whether MR or RW are not looking after their interests. The minority leaders are having an open field to favour their own community. For political propaganda they are accused of discrimination by the minorities daily. They are accused of the 83 riots when they had nothing to do with it it was the UNP goons who did it. The buddhists are subject to foreign funded conversions. The present economic system does not cater to the buddhists . They are economically cleansed from the main economic centres. Under these circumstances where is this discrimination they are accused of ? In the previous govt the Chief justice, Attorney general, governor of the central bank were all catholics. They ran races and ignored the protests of the Mahanayake and insulted the Buddhists by having half naked dancers in front of the Dalada Maligawa. Is this the majoritism that even chandrika accuses them of? BBS unfortunately is filling this void. The problem was best said by Gnanasara thero. He said Tamils have leaders, Muslims have leaders but the Sinhala Buddhists have no leaders. MR and RW are not Sinhala buddhists leaders! They are nominal buddhists who are political leaders. It is time the media , politicians understand that these false accusations can only lead to insecurity and could rebound violently with the insecurity high jacked by a more violent segment of the Sinhala buddhists community. The media and the political class should instead promote good governance, rule of law, address corruption not make false accusations for political expediency.

      Vaas: no-one denies that Sinhala Buddhists have grievances too like others. But answer does not lie in unleashing the mad dogs like BBS on the streets and hunt down the minorities and make them also feel insecure. Answer lies in initiating a frank discussion of issues of contention between the religious and even political leaders. Most important matter is restoring the rule of law and order. Whether Sinhala ,Tamil or Muslim, crime is a crime and should be viewed as such. Whether it is wele suda or Mujahid, Prabakaran or Gnnassara or that ISIS militant, they should not be viewed through racial or religious lens. Let us build up this country together without getting into compartments.

      Further, do you reckon that Muslims have leaders while Sinhalese do not. If you refer to Hakeems, Rishards, or Mustafas as Muslim leaders, you need to check your mind. They are political opportunists who have been selling he interests of their community for petty gains. We Muslims do not have TB Jayahs, Razik Fareeds or Baduideen Mahmoods amongst us. What this country needs is political leadership without communal feelings. SLMC for example is a liability which need to be discarded as most Muslims feel.

        Dignity for all,
        It is not only Grievances that needs to be taken into account. It is a continuous barrage of false accusations of sinhala buddhist hegemonism, Discrimination of minorities when in fact the majority are the victims ( Divided betweenn the UNP/SLFP they are political minority) Mahavansa mentality , Majpritism etc best seen in the comments and articles in this web site. Running to India and the west to interfere in the governance of SL.These are unwarranted comments and actions that create the BBS . Do not blame BBS blame the minority political leaders and their elites who make these accusations. Stop these actions and BBS will be a non entity.
