Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara, the monk who took the law into his own hands on several occasions earlier is now begging the Buddha Sasana Minister, Maha Sanga and authorities responsible for Buddhism to provide education regarding the existing laws in this country.
Gnanasara made this plea outside the Homagama Magistrates Court yesterday after he was released on bail on two suretiesof Rs. 200,000. The ‘fearless’ monk was previously known to take the country’s sovereign law into his own hands and even urged others on several occasions to do so by encouraging them to come out to the streets and protest.
Prior to being remanded, Gnanasara even boldly stated to his large gathering of followers “This is this just the beginning.”
In August 2014, the Aluthgama and Dharga Town massacre of the Muslims took place immediately after he made a hate speech in those areas.
