BBS Gnanasara Strikes Again In Full View Of Police

BBS monks threatening Jathika Bala Sena monks holding Press Conf. @ Nippon Hotel #lka pic.twitter.com/ZxEiLi7BLI

The incident took place this morning at the Hotel Nippon in Colombo.

Watareka Vijitha Thero was a vocal critic of the conduct of Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero and was assaulted and hospitalised last year while travelling in a vehicle. The monk alleged that the BBS was behind the assault. No person was apprehended or arrested by the Law Enforcement authorities following the assault.

The BBS General Secretary while verbally abusing the head of the Jathika Bala Sena coerced him into apologising for convening a press conference and ordered the disbanding of the organisation.

Watareka Vijitha Thero who was surrounded by the mob inclusive of monks had agreed to apologise and disband the organisation.

Sources however confirmed to the Colombo Telegraph that Vijitha Thero would make a Police complaint shortly at the Slave Island Police.

Around 40 Police personnel who were present during the fracas had not attempted to prevent the abuse nor acted against the violation of the right to the freedom of expression.

      (self-confessed) Lying Monkey, you want CT to whitewash all the news that is likely to cause embarrassment to the GOSL and the Buddhist priesthood. But there are millions of people out there who like to know what is happening in this country and they are grateful to CT for bringing this news out.

      If you want to read only the rosy side of SL news just stick to the Kept Press and government radio and TV. Don’t waste your time with CT.

    “The other monks with monk Vajira are imposters and they don’t have even monk ID.”

    Can’t these so called impostor monks buy ID from Department of Buddhist Affairs which is within the purview of Ministry of Buddha Sasana & Religious Affairs.

    The minister responsible is the Prime Minister Hon. D.M. Jayaratne.

    In case if you want to make a bob or two from Muslim Businessmen here is an useful address:

      I read somewhere you searched for data related to govt´s corruption.

      here is the YOUTUDE

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez95XZIMA8k

      jvp raised the issue only 5, 33% (205 Billions) have been spent for all the gigantic projects, while whereabout of 94,67% (3644Billion)have been wasted. This the JVPers claim the rulers have just ignored the isssue.

      Please check all the parts of youtube videos. That will help you further.

      Sorry, this question you had raised somewhere else, nevertheless I added it here.

          as one another evidence – Rev. Sobitha Thero expressed in his speech to the Daily mirror, that only few cents are being used for the development under the guidance of provincial councils, almost everything allocated are being wasted by the candidates.
          And he further says, Nethipathi dept, Accouncy/charted dept have long been taken under President himself, so that others would not be able to take any due actions independently. This isthe very reason, we attack minister of Justice loudly, but he has no authority to react independently.

        Here’s what happened to the looted 3,644 Billion Rupees.Please read the following web.

        http://www.lankaeagle.com/?p=7531

        It says……”Investment of nearly US$ 7.0 billion Through “Chelina Capital Corporation”, a Rajapaksa Front Company”……

        “Rajapaksa family is set to amass a personal wealth of at least US$ 800 million by way of equity stakes or commissions in these 15 projects”.
        It also says…..”It is a public knowledge in Sri Lanka that Chelina Corp is a front company of President Rajapaksa which is shown on paper to be owned by Lolitha Abeysinghe close relative of Gamini Senarath, Chief of Staff of President Rajapaksa and also his close confidante. Gamini is point man of Rajapaksa and is known to conduct many or most of President’s private deals on his behalf. To facilitate future such projects, Mahinda has also appointed Lolita Abeysinghe as member of Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka. This position allows him to manipulate stock market using funds from State controlled Banks and from Provident Funds”.
        Also it says…..”Hotel Project in Mt Lavinia: A hotel is being built on about one acre land in Mt Lavinia at a cost of US$ 20 million. The hotel reportedly belongs to Rajapaksa family”.

        And finally it says…….

Otherwise how his ministry issuing letters to release a Heroin Container from the Port which import by a muslim in Gampola. Not only muslim man now one diplomatic official of British embassy in Colombo also trying to release a one suspect from the custody.

    During the maiden meeting held yesterday by the Jathika (National) Bala Sena ,a movement that has been launched jointly by Ven. Watareka Vijitha Thero and the Muslim community aimed at fostering religious unity and amity was most viciously disrupted by Bebedu Sena sangha hooligan and the Bodhu Bala terrorists representing the paramilitary group of Gotabaya Rajapakse who broke into the meeting most violently.

    Bodhu Bala terrorists have chased away the participating Muslim group. As usual the police have been standing idle and watching or rather enjoying the rowdy murderous conduct of the Bodhu Bala Sena’s (BBS) when they were forcibly chasing out the participants of the meeting. Ven. Vijitha Thero who could not any longer tolerate the BBS hooliganism had announced he is terminating the meeting and dispersed the crowd.

    May we recall that Lanka e-news earlier on at the beginning of this monk terrorism in the country by the powers that be from the behind the scenes ,warned that this extremist monk group –the BBS which is launching attacks on other religions and followers will soon begin attacking the other monks of the same Buddhist faith. This prophesy has come true today.

    The phorograph/video herein depict a number of scenes of rowdy murderous conduct of the terrorist Buddhist monks spawned by Gotabaya Rajapakse. Meanwhile the leader of the BBS (terrorist monk leader) Bebedhu Gnanassara sangha murderer had phoned the police headquarters and said he wished to meet the IGP urgently yesterday and whether the IGP would have the time to give an appointment. When he failed he had in his characteristic style berated the police officer who answered the phone in the choicest foul language. The police officer at the other end had replied, ‘it does not matter who you are. First and foremost learn to speak in a civilized manner. ’Gnanassara who is by birth shameless like animals though he wears a robe having no choice and accustomed to humiliation even at the hands of pavement pimps had terminated the call .

      Janaka@,
      this is the not the first time, that Ghansara went amok to this levels.

      We are speechless when looking at them being out of the country.
      But I really dont think that locals would feel that abusive. Today, even if you have no justice, fairness, case free, investigation free, people seem to have no concerns (I mean the majority).
      I thought of visting my parents in July, but this time, I am not longing to see the country execpt my aged parents. I am fed up to be honest. We really enjoyed democracy in the country, but today, things have turned its way very abusive…

      Janaka Fernando,

      We hear even the “Big Boss” talk in utter filth to his own wife and to Cabinet Ministers, Police top Brass and other Government VIPs openly and in midst of everybody. This has become his style of governance and life.

      Even his own Brother behaves in similar manner.

      Therefore this Thug monks behaving in such vulgar manner is no exception.They all copy from the Master Blaster who is a double character.

      Now even the Police officers have started to talk in filth to Public openly. This has become a chain reaction now.

      This shows the Rulers class, breed and where they come from and where the country heading.

      Sri Lanka is imploding within. There’s no need for foreign intervention.

      Watch the super Luxury Land cruisers these thug monks drive.Who gave these to them and where the money coming from. Look at their sizes….
      XXXLarge body sizes. Who feed them…..Who let the dogs out…..

      Very soon Sri Lanka will become a Thugs Paradise.

    This is very insteresting story.

    Those who have booked the hotel for the discussion round were Rev. Wijitha thero and Muslims.So on their behalf police had given their support too.
    But all of sudden, BBS dracula monks had turned up their claiming that they have also rights to listen to what former two parties were about to discuss.
    In the picture, as it is beocming very clear, instead of giving the proection to the fair parties, police stand aside letting Ghnaasara to go on. This means, there should be all other powers that should have activated behind the scene. Muslims fellow men were looked down upon by Ghanasara, thinking that they were his servant boys. Muslim brothers were very decent, did not try to solve the issue by assualting Ghansara. Ghanasara was the only person who tried to beat the innocient monk -who was sitting and was ready for the meeting.
    All in all, Ghnasara should have been taken to custody, since all prima facie evidence were there, that they were the culprits of the incident.
    If the rulers would not see this in this way, means .. this has been organized by GOVT but sending BBS to forfront.

      Leelage malli,

      The reason Police is so powerless is due to Gota’s special Intelligence unit giving special protection BBS Gnanasara.

      Watch the following video and see how the Special unit give cover to Gnanasara and his thugs.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJ-6-6ZEd7E&feature=youtu.be

      People should rally behind Rev.Watareka Wijitha Thero who is fighting a lone battle for Justice to Muslim Community against all powerful BBS Gnanasara who is ever been taken care of an protected by Gota.

      Gnanasara is even given the protection by Gota’s Intelligence service unit and that’s why Police is helpless and feared to intervene.

      That’s why Gnanasara is even ready to Murder Wijitha Thero or anybody who goes against their Racist agenda.

      It is time to show our solidarity and to unite as one behind Rev.Watareka Wijitha thero and fight against thuggery, intimidation and threats against Powerless and helpless people.

      Lets unite to fight against Racism, thuggery, suppression, intimidation, corruption and cronyism of both BBS Racist Gnanasara and Medamulana thugs.

      All these Muslim and Tamil Hatred intensified after UPFA lost Galle PC when all Muslims voted for UNP and also in Colombo when Muslims and Tamils voted for UNP, JVP and DP.

      It’s time to take offensive actions and drag the culprits to courts.

      Even servant boys, one should not speak the way – abusively to anyone. Why is that Ghanasara seems to have some special rights to see above the people ?
      One should check whether he is a real monk, not pointing at the gentle thero who was helpless in the incident. I really dont know that Wijiatha thero ´s activiites made big harm to entire buddhist community, All these are just rumours that have been been sowed by irresponsible people. He has however risked his life daring to speak for the muslims.
      Such abusive manner, Ghanasara had attacked him verbally, not privately, but publicly, this has damaged the self respect and the human rights of the Wijiatha thero, we all that respect dignity of life, should rally round for the sake of the rights of Wijitha thero. In that way only, we can corner Ghanasara – learning him a good lession.

    I am born buddhist, If I were there, I would have taken the side of the muslims and wjigith thero.I have not been shocked any time before until I was the video yesterday. Ghanasara s behaviour was comparable to a street thug. I would have even lost my controll going attacking him physically proving that is kind of defending mechanism.

    I thank you for the muslim brothers for being that calm and quiet. If this was otherway around, how would Sinhalase have reacted – far beyond the brutal riots in 83.

    It is high time, we the people have to take the law to our hand to hand Ghanasara by his balls to learn him a good lession

      Sinhala so called thugs (in sanga costumes) should learn it from their minorities. Those muslim brothers gathered their should have the same rights as we the sinahalaya enjoy them. They booked the hotel together with the Rev. Thero, to hold a discussion. If the Thero thought that is against the entire sanga, why should have he dared to do so ? From his appearence, gives the feeling that he is highly civilized, gentle kind of a person, compared to leader of BBS-Ghanasara, who together with their supporter had turned up there telling the world that they have every right to sit down and listen what a Thero has to discuss with the muslim brothers. Every right thinking would feel, it is not fair to disturb the rights of other parties in a country if democracy is said to be their state form. Now I feel, even going to have such discussions focusing on our purposes may be attacked by BBS or any other like minded segements that they are fel is right to do so. This nature of behaviours are no means accepatable any democractic institutions. Promotion of this kind of violence lead us to impunity governing rule. Govt to not to react adequately, has become a great puzzle to the GENERAL PUBLIC to this day.

I am telling you. This country, if someone went wrong to that manner in publicly, recalling the fate of premadasa, his survival would have been not that long. JuST showing and telling the palatable repeatedly, ballah behaves hiding his tail behind. For him, votes are going to be the highest pririty. Nothing else. People have to sacrifice for his voter greediness. What a world ?

    Where is Bar Association of Sri Lanka…….

    BASL should protect all Citizens equally and specially Minority, helpless, powerless, voiceless and poor people who are looking for justice.

    We don’t see BASL doing it’s part.

    BASL should help this innocent Monk Watareka Vijitha Thero who was assaulted and threat with death by this BBS Gnanasara drunkard thug. This thug is a walkig time bomb. Any time he could explode and murder somebody. He should be sent on solitary confinement.

    Does BBS have immunity under constitution to talk filth and call for death threats on other Citizens and monks and Priests…….

    Also can Gnanasara openly talk in filth to other Religious Priests and Laymen. He should openly apologise and should pay compensation for them.

    BASL should bring a lawsuit against BBS Gnanasara and other monks on this incident. Otherwise peple will not have any faith in BASL, and finally will take up arms to protect them selves and their rights.

    That day could be near.

      Lasantha, your faith in the BASL is totally misplaced. Today, the BASL is nothing more in substance than a labour union. Their objectives are limited to looking after the interests of the lawyers. The BASL is no longer concerned about the rule of law or civic rights or good governance. They focus on making money presently and keep their eyes and ears out for some lucrative position in the government or private sector later on. Fully 90% of them are very meek and subservient and not willing to confront the government on any major issue. Put simply, the majority of practising lawyers are unprincipled, opportunistic, spineless cowards!

    Time bomb is ticking and (God forbid can burst anytime
    ==============================================

    Galagodaaththe Gnanasara –After signing the agreement with Wiruthu along with The blessing of The President whom he accompanied with tried the waters for the first time in Vilpathu – to stage the first attack ,so far most of his agitations against The Muslim minority has failed due to the Muslims restrain and patience which the entire international community has
    Appreciated .

    He called the poor people by the most derogatory names ever and then when the people expressed their frustration and emotions – he and his thugs threaten to beat them up and set fire to their homes and also , Gnanasara was prompting the police officer to open fire at the people ,like what he did at rathupass ,when people expressed their frustration against toxic water ,on Gnanasara’s personally ordered the shooting , he is the second in command after Gota in Führer 0f the new (neo nazist buddhistischen )
    mahinda’s Gostapal (equivalent to Gestapo ).
    He has his spies all over from prostitutes ,to Three wheel drivers, to payment hawkers all at low level.

    All they want is some reaction to the agitation to have an excuse to start the raping and massacre .

    Two big time business women are involved behind the scenes ,their female staff was seen in the video .

    We kindly request some one or CT to do the subtitles clearly in English in the last two clips we will Come up with the cost if required.

    This bugger has to be thought a lesson ,for his own sake if he has any assets let him right his last will .

    TIME TO JOIN A MASS SRI LAKA FREEDOM FIGHTERS PEOPLES ARMY -SINHALESE -(BUDDHIST &CHRISTIANS ,INCLUDING CATHOLICS) TAMILS ,MUSLIMS ETC,LET US SHOW WE ARE NOT LOW DOWN BURMESE GOONS ,LETS GET ON AND FINISH IT.

      Let´s wait and see how Ghanasara would behave in the police on the 12th.

      I think it is high time code of conduct of police to amend.
      Now inlcuding this time, I have read/watched very many times during the last 5 years, that police men are sitting aside when BBS -Ghanasara and his forces physically attack the monks or lay men. That should be changed… any police men just sitting aside should be punished … if they cant fuction as real police men, why to join police. Yesterday, those police men could have taken Ghanasara away as they would remove unnecessary animals coming to any territories without permission.

    Squatters at Wilpattu: BBS falsely linked it with Jasmine Housing Project – Petition to President
    April 9, 2014, 10:26 pm

    by Zacki Jabbar

    Twelve Muslim organizations have jointly appealed to President Mahinda Rajapaksa to reign in the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), which was once again trying to revive communal disturbances by making false allegations with regard to the resettlement of Muslims who were driven out of the North by the LTTE in 1990.

    The petition signed by the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama, Muslim Council of Sri Lanka, Muslim Lawyers Association, All Ceylon YMMA Conference, Muslim Womens Research and Action Forum, All Ceylon Union of Muslim Youth League Front, National Shoora Council, Secretariat for Muslims, Muslim Media Forum, Sri Lanka Jamath-e-Islami, United Muslim Ummah, Majlisul Shoora said that the latest target of the BBS was the Muslim resettlers in the Northern Province.”The BBS is wrongfully claiming that a new resettlement colony called Jassim City is being constructed with donor funds inside the Wilpattu National Park. The charge has been leveled with racial intentions. The rhetoric will derail what little assistance that is being delivered to the Northern Muslims. A hundred thousand Muslims were forcibly evicted in 1990 from the North by the LTTE as an act of ethnic cleansing. Since then, these IDPs have been living as a forgotten people in different parts of the country. Please ensure that the rule of law prevails and extremist groups are prevented from taking their law into their hands and intimidating innocent citizens of this country.”

    They have requested the President to establish a mechanism to inquire into the resettlement process of the Northern Muslims and ensure that all Muslim IDP’s expelled by the LTTE who have been languishing in camps for over 24 years be resettled immediately.

    No illegal resettlement nor damage had been caused to the Wilpattu National Park or the environment. Hundred families whose lands are currently occupied by the Navy have squatted in temporary shelters in about two acres of land belonging to the buffer zone near the Wilpattu National Park. They have been there for about a month now and the media was highlighting their presence without clarifying that this was a separate group which was not part of the Jassim City housing programme. The confusion and bad feeling caused by the BBS and the media reporting around the incident had caused great distress to both returning Northern Muslims and the rest of the Muslim Community. It, was believed that the difficult times of last year, where extremist groups openly made racists statements against the Muslim community was a thing of the past. But sadly, this does not seem to be the case, the petition noted.

    Squatters at Wilpattu: BBS falsely linked it with Jasmine Housing Project – Petition to President
    April 9, 2014, 10:26 pm

    by Zacki Jabbar

    Twelve Muslim organizations have jointly appealed to President Mahinda Rajapaksa to reign in the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), which was once again trying to revive communal disturbances by making false allegations with regard to the resettlement of Muslims who were driven out of the North by the LTTE in 1990.

    The petition signed by the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama, Muslim Council of Sri Lanka, Muslim Lawyers Association, All Ceylon YMMA Conference, Muslim Womens Research and Action Forum, All Ceylon Union of Muslim Youth League Front, National Shoora Council, Secretariat for Muslims, Muslim Media Forum, Sri Lanka Jamath-e-Islami, United Muslim Ummah, Majlisul Shoora said that the latest target of the BBS was the Muslim resettlers in the Northern Province.”The BBS is wrongfully claiming that a new resettlement colony called Jassim City is being constructed with donor funds inside the Wilpattu National Park. The charge has been leveled with racial intentions. The rhetoric will derail what little assistance that is being delivered to the Northern Muslims. A hundred thousand Muslims were forcibly evicted in 1990 from the North by the LTTE as an act of ethnic cleansing. Since then, these IDPs have been living as a forgotten people in different parts of the country. Please ensure that the rule of law prevails and extremist groups are prevented from taking their law into their hands and intimidating innocent citizens of this country.”

    They have requested the President to establish a mechanism to inquire into the resettlement process of the Northern Muslims and ensure that all Muslim IDP’s expelled by the LTTE who have been languishing in camps for over 24 years be resettled immediately.

    No illegal resettlement nor damage had been caused to the Wilpattu National Park or the environment. Hundred families whose lands are currently occupied by the Navy have squatted in temporary shelters in about two acres of land belonging to the buffer zone near the Wilpattu National Park. They have been there for about a month now and the media was highlighting their presence without clarifying that this was a separate group which was not part of the Jassim City housing programme. The confusion and bad feeling caused by the BBS and the media reporting around the incident had caused great distress to both returning Northern Muslims and the rest of the Muslim Community. It, was believed that the difficult times of last year, where extremist groups openly made racists statements against the Muslim community was a thing of the past. But sadly, this does not seem to be the case, the petition noted.

    WASHINGTON — A Sri Lanka newspaper photo of two monks looks innocent enough: One of the men presents the other with a birthday present. It’s difficult to make out, but it looks to be some sort of gold figurine on a red velvet base. In fact, the photo would be totally uninteresting if it weren’t for the fact these men are two of the world’s most important leaders of a dangerously radical brand of Buddhism.

    In the 1990s, Bhutan expelled or forced to leave its Hindu population in the name of preserving its Buddhist culture and identity.

    After the 2008 unrest in the Tibetan area of the PRC, the official Chinese government stance has been that the Dalai Lama helped to orchestrate the unrest and violence. A Chinese Ministry of Public Security spokesperson claimed searches of monasteries in the Tibetan capital had turned up a large cache of weapons, including 176 guns and 7,725 pounds of explosives.

    The Colombo Telegraph reported that “Sri Lanka’s minority Muslims continue to be subjected to violence and persecution, often at the hands of militant Buddhists, who are very active at the grassroots level.”

    Since March 2013, anti-Muslim riots have flared up in various cities in central and eastern Burma. The violence has coincided with the rise of the Buddhist 969 Movement

    THIRD WORLD RESURGENCE
    Killing in the name of Buddhism

    Tom Fawthrop investigates what is behind Buddhist monks inciting attacks on Muslim communities in Myanmar.

    IT was not so long ago that Myanmarese Buddhist monks dressed in saffron robes organised brave protests and peaceful processions against the brutal military junta led by General Than Shwe. It was dubbed the Saffron Revolution. In 2007 their Gandhian non-violent resistance was watched with awe and commanded the respect of millions around the globe.

    These images etched in our collective memory are hard to square with an ugly new reality in Myanmar – the sight of Buddhist gangs setting Muslim communities ablaze. Some monks have played a vanguard role in instigating this anti-Muslim campaign which has seen acts of collective arson and racist brutality.

    How can the same religion known throughout the world for its commitment to peace, meditation and reflection engage in hate-filled sermons against the Muslim minority?

    Muslim-owned shops and homes in Lashio in Shan state were the most recent victims of a Buddhist motorbike gang in June. Shan researcher Sai Latt commented that ‘the government and the police are not doing anything at all to clamp down on extremist hate propaganda against Muslims’.

    The killings of Muslim Rohingyas in western Rakhine state that started the violence in 2012 have spread this year to the wider Muslim population. In March, systemic arson razed to the ground 1,300 Muslim-owned houses and shops in the central town of Meikhtila. Armed Buddhist gangs later brought terror to 14 peaceful Muslim communities in towns and villages in central Myanmar. Acting with total impunity, they moved south to Pegu division, unleashing another wave of havoc in Okkan district.

    Is the violence the inevitable result of reformist changes in the country that have brought more freedom of expression in Myanmar with the emergence of a quasi-civilian government after 50 years of brutal military repression?

    Certainly that is what presidential spokesman and deputy minister of information Ye Htut would have us believe. ‘We cannot avoid this time of chaos,’ he told AFP news agency. He insisted the wave of hate speech and violence targeting Muslims was the ‘ugly by-product’ of new freedoms allowed by the reformist government.

    Whereas Ye Htut claims the government ‘cannot control the chaos’, Sai Latt, a PhD candidate at Simon Fraser University in Canada, claims that there is a clearly orchestrated pattern to these anti-Muslim attacks.

    Latt says the pattern is clear: ‘Prior to the riots, anti-Muslim literature arrives in a town, followed by monks preaching “969” sermons in the vicinity. On the day when violence breaks out, truckloads of strangers including monks have appeared on the scene. In each case an incident takes place that triggers the anger of the Buddhists.’

    Shortly after that, all hell breaks loose as angry mobs cry ‘Kill the Muslims’, attack mosques and set fire to their homes while carefully avoiding damage to nearby Buddhist-owned shops and houses.

    According to Sai Latt, ‘there is never any preventive action. Whatever happened or however things turned out, the president’s spokesman, Ye Htut, will blame Muslims and cover up the incidents on his Facebook page’.

    Originally the numerals ‘969’ symbolise the virtues of the Buddha, Buddhist practices and the Buddhist community. But now ‘969’ has been hijacked as a symbol of anti-Muslim agitation.

    Lack of effective response

    The central town of Meikhtila bears the ugly legacy of recent anti-Muslim violence. Large sections of the town have been reduced to rubble and a few broken walls – all that remains of what used to be a thriving Muslim community of almost 1,300 houses, shops and mosques. This writer found compelling evidence of state complicity among the eyewitness accounts of the actions of residents during the four days of mob attacks on the Muslim community which resulted in an official count of 42 deaths although other reports indicated more than a hundred Muslim victims and a few Buddhists.

    The government of President Thein Sein, so active in its efforts to assure Western audiences that the new Myanmar will never return to the dark days of the previous ruling military junta, has so far failed to take any concrete action to end the brutal spiral of attacks on Muslim communities.

    Thein Sein’s periodic appeals for ‘an end to communal violence’ are less than convincing. He never condemns Buddhist extremism but on the contrary has defended extremist monk U Wirathu as a ‘true son of Buddha’.

    Bill Davis, former Burma project director for Physicians for Human Rights, and Andrea Gittleman, the group’s senior legal adviser, reported that ‘in Meikhtila, investigators found that police were complicit in the violence against Muslims … they marched unarmed Muslims toward an armed civilian mob, then refused to protect them from beating, stoning, and murder; they did not help injured Muslims; and they failed to apprehend perpetrators’.

    ‘The general lack of an effective response from the central government is a monumental failure to protect its citizens from organised and targeted violence,’ they said in a report.

    UN Special Rapporteur for human rights in Myanmar, Tomas Ojea Quintana, said he received reports of ‘state involvement in some of the acts of violence, and of instances where the military, police and other civilian law enforcement forces have been standing by while atrocities have been committed before their very eyes, including by well-organised ultra-nationalist Buddhist mobs’.

    Religious conflict or a politically stoked intrigue?

    In many parts of the world racial and religious prejudice and bigotry have been manipulated by autocratic rulers to stay in power, or by colonial powers to hang on to their stolen territories.

    Ashin Issariya, one of the monks who led the 2007 Saffron Revolution protests against the previous military government, told this writer, ‘Buddhists and Muslims in Myanmar have lived together harmoniously for decades.’

    The Irrawaddy, a Myanmarese news service with offices in Chiangmai and Yangon, reported that ‘Muslims began arriving in Burma as traders and mercenaries in the 13th century and lived alongside Buddhists in relative peace for centuries. In the 19th century, under the reformist King Mindon, mosques were built and thousands of Muslims served in Burmese infantry and artillery divisions. Mindon even helped build a hostel in Mecca for Burmese Muslims making the pilgrimage or hajj.’

    The editor-in-chief of the Open News journal, Thiha Saw, in a recent interview explained, ‘Overall we have a history of religious harmony in the country. But the anti-Muslim card is the trump card used by the military at critical times. It is an old trick. The Buddhist mobs attacking mosques are outsiders. These so-called Buddhists are often hired from the ranks of the unemployed, and it is alleged they receive training from former military officers.’

    A recurring theme from locals is that ‘outsiders’ are bussed in by trucks and nearly all of them are armed with sticks, swords and machetes. An incident soon happens between a Muslim and a Buddhist that provides the spark and then the gangs swing into action, agitating and enlisting locals to join the ensuing riot. Muslim-owned homes and shops are demolished and, along with them, previous inter-communal and religious harmony.

    In Okkan district a monk in robes was at the wheel of a bulldozer engaged in destroying the walls of a mosque. Issariya laughs in disbelief, ‘A real monk cannot drive a bulldozer, this is not part of our training.’

    Discerning the truth through the fog of propaganda and the chaos is not made any easier when you have both extremist monks like U Wirathu and fake monks carrying out an offensive – the one with inflammatory rhetoric complemented by a fake monk bulldozing a mosque.

    The peace activist monk Issariya told this writer, ‘This is a well-planned campaign by a group of people who use religious bigotry to further their political ambitions. Certain forces yearn for the return of a military government. General Than Shwe [the supreme leader of the former military junta] is more powerful than President Thein Sein.’

    Bitter divisions inside Myanmarese Buddhism

    Most of the media coverage, both domestic and international, has narrowly focused on the anti-Muslim rantings spewed out by U Wirathu from a monastery near Mandalay.

    He has claimed that Muslims commit virtually all the rape cases in Myanmar, that their mosques and assets are being secretly financed by the Saudis, and that they plan to eventually take over the whole country.

    The Buddha preached calm and contemplation but Wirathu’s agenda calls for the opposite. ‘Now is not the time for calm,’ the 46-year-old monk has declared while denigrating Muslims. ‘Now is the time to rise up, to make your blood boil.’ He was quoted as saying this in the 1 July issue of Time magazine, which featured a cover photograph of the monk with the caption ‘The face of Buddhist terror’. That issue was banned inside Myanmar.

    Extremist monks led by the publicity-hungry Wirathu are preaching a brand of pure Buddhist nation-state where there is no place for the followers of Islam. Speeches and rallies led by Wirathu, which resemble more a political campaign than a call to enlightenment, have invariably happened in the vicinity of Meikhtila, Okkan and other districts just before the violence there broke out.

    Buddhism in Myanmar has been battered and divided by the anti-Muslim campaign. Extremist monks like Wirathu have garnered worldwide attention for their racist views. But Buddhist networks which assert the teachings of the Buddha and the path of peace, religious tolerance and social justice have largely been ignored by both local and international media.

    At Meikhtila’s Zay Yar Bun monastery, senior monk Udamme Thara said, ‘I know more than 1,000 Muslims fleeing from their attackers received sanctuary inside our monasteries. I am sure almost all temples provided safety and saved their lives.’

    Ashin Issariya’s peace network of 800 monks, meanwhile, provided humanitarian aid to the victims of Meikhtila and organised shipments of rice, clothes and other aid to IDP (internally displaced people) camps for fleeing Muslims.

    ‘We were not expecting this violence when we chanted for peace and reconciliation in 2007,’ said Ashin Nyana Nika, the abbot of Pauk Jadi monastery who has attended a meeting sponsored by Muslim groups to discuss the issue.

    Ashin Sanda Wara, the head of a monastic school in Yangon, has been quoted by the New York Times as saying that the monks in Myanmar are divided nearly equally between moderates and extremists.

    Okkan-based Shwe Nya was reported by The Irrawaddy as telling a gathering of his fellow monks, ‘We need to work together to stop this violence. This is not only good for Okkan, but good for Myanmar. If this conflict spreads to the whole country based on religious issues … there will be a coup. So if this continues to happen, Myanmar is headed in a dark direction.’

    If a military faction or hardliners inside the cabinet are playing the anti-Muslim card, the real objective is probably not to stage another coup. The ‘dark direction’ is more likely to be towards entrenching the role of the armed forces in the country’s new quasi-civilian configuration by seeking to convince the grassroots population that a strong army is still needed to protect the nation from falling into further chaos.

    It may also be part of the ruling party’s strategy to cling on to power and prevent reformist parties such as Aung San Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy from winning the 2015 general election.

    During all the persecution of the Rohingyas and other Muslim communities, Suu Kyi, who has won many awards abroad for her moral leadership, has maintained a steadfast silence. Whenever cornered by the media, she has retreated into bland pleas for ‘communal violence to end’ and argued that it would be unhelpful to take sides.

    But since May 2012, Suu Kyi has undergone her own metamorphosis, from iconic moral voice against dictatorship to a politician who is hoping to lead her NLD party to victory in the 2015 polls. Many fear that the anti-Muslim tide is being whipped up to undermine her chances of victory.

    One of the few public statements countering the anti-Muslim prejudice came from senior Buddhist leader and respected scholar Sitagu Sayadaw in a speech at the Myanmar Peace Centre in Yangon on 30 March. He declared, ‘I deeply denounce these religious, racial and commercial conflicts with no exceptions. Lord Buddha teaches non-violence. I firmly believe other religious denominations share the same concept, and no god prescribed conflict of any kind.’ He told his audience that all religions ‘aim for eternal peace of mankind’.

    Sadly, his noble call to follow the teachings of the Buddha has received little attention in the Burmese-language media.

    Any hope of Myanmar advancing towards democracy will depend in part on the outcome of this struggle over the soul of Myanmarese Buddhism – whether it results in a regression into ethnic chauvinism or an enlightenment that supports human rights of all religions and races.
