BBS Gnanasara Threatens To ‘Split The Ear’ Of Journalist C.A. Chandraprema

Prominent political commentator C.A. Chandraprema said that buddhist monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara of the Bodu Bala Sena had abused and threatened him at a funeral in Narammala yesterday.

Chandraprema

According to Chandraprema, as he was leaving the funeral of the mother of Ven Medagoda Abhayatissa Thero in Narammala, he had been accosted by Gnanasara, who had proceeded to abuse and threaten him.

“I was speaking to the Chief Incumbent of another temple when Gnanasara accosted me and asked me if I was Chandraprema. On answering in the affirmative, Gnanasara thera said “mama thamusege kana palanawa (I will split open your ear),” Chandraprema told Colombo Telegraph.

Chandraprema said: “I told Gnansara that this was Ven. Abhayatissa’s monther’s funeral and if there was anything to be discussed, that should be discussed outside the premises.

“While moving a few steps towards the road, Gnanasara told me “Mama dannawa thamusege Kolapata Samajaya gena (I know your Green Society. This is the title of a book Chandraprema wrote several decades ago –Ed)” and then again Gnanasara said “mata puluwan thamusege kana palanna.” Whereupon I told Gnanasara “Ehemanam hamuduruwane kana palanna (in that case reverand, proceed to split my ear).

“At this point, some senior monks intervened and sent me away. This is a strange experience. I have been threatened by a Bhikku who wears the robe of the Buddha whereas I have never been threatened by a politician in that manner in all my years in journalism!”

    Thadi Priyantha is the Author of “Gota’s War” he is no. 1 Patriot and Gota’s right hand. If Nanasara could split the ear of Thadi Priyantha his next target should be Author of “Rena Maga Osse Nandikadal” Go ahead Nanasara try to deal with “yellow Cat”.

      Now we see, that they are in pieces.

      This is what we wanted.

      Stupid forces will never succedd their criminal movements.

      Gotabaya has lost his program dhiwimaga.

      Many would not support the bugger. Now we have been reaching to the real nemesis of Rajapakshes.

      Last week I heard that AVANGUARD case ended not in favours of Gotabaya.
      They still have to face the charges.

      Now the mafia family will have to face it… inlcuding burtal Rajapakshe family of 4 in Medamulana and their brothers all togehter.

      Wait and see, the day, is no far from now. Jaya niyathayi.

        Good news that there are also forces standing against Wimal Buruwasne within his own party to this date.

        So, his times are numbered. I think they will have to accept very same folks would not allow the kind of stupid men to fool them on and on.

        We need to put Wimal WEERAWANSE in a prison for his rest of life in order to allow good moves to progress in this nation. His mouth piece is the most abusive as nothing can be comparable to it.
        It comes from his background he s been coming from. School drop out, no whatsoever any proper education but a mouth piece as any other thug on the street louds while the gallery would stay mum being helpless.
        Lanken folks – wake up, we need to give our future generation a life.
        Just hng on with hatreds, and malacy cant bring us forward. God bless our folk !

      Gota’s war has now come to hound C A Chandraperuma. He never realised that there was a world outside Gota’s amude during the reign of the national hangman.

      It seems Gota’s little willi is threatening his one time b***s carrier.

      Lapatiya,

      Sinhala Buddhism Version 2.0
      Ganasara, who wants the Sinhala “Buddhist” Saffron robe, wants to split the ear of journalist Chandraperuma.

      Is this an insultt to the Buddha by the Sinhala “Buddhist” monk?

      Gota wanted journalists ( Lasantha, Ekliyagoda) killed, because Gota follows MaRa and Mara.

      Sinhala Buddhism Version 1.0 was, monk Mahanma’s Mahawamsa, which is an insult t to the Buddha.

      Lapatiya, Youngster

      Ganasara does not know Buddhism. He knows Mara-ism, aka MaRa-ism and versions of Sinhala ‘Buddhism” , and considers himself to be the Third “Gem” of the Triple Gem., and therefore “Infallible”

      Does he know that he is a Para? He needs to get his DNA tested.

      He does not know love. He needs to take some lessons from Lessons From The Ancient Sage, Rumi.

    both Gnanasara who behaves unlike for a Bhikku and Chandrapema who behave unbecoming for a journalist are both in the same boat.

      Not just aluthgama case, but he has blood in his penis too.

      He is the most abusive monk in all times. He is the one who tamed Pulligona Gotabaya allowing that Wirathu the counterpart of Myanmar… sending the message across the world, that lanken buddhists too are no different to those in Myanmar.

      Please folk, dont continue eating punnnaku anymore, wake up and rally round to stand against this barbaric monk.

        I dont think we will have to wait longer to see LANKA s Wirathu would stay as had been before, in the days to come.
        He is a th emost abusive monk of all monk hood.
        Just being stuck to lanken extremists the bugger has been destroying lanken buddhism.
        Basta.
        I hate the kin dof men and supporters even if budhism has no space for hatreds and devisions.
        Lankens practise not the teachings of buddha, but those of followers. Most of them are abusive. There is no buddhism in the country at all.

    Ghanasara is like a fish out of water right these days. So may be he thought to abuse the chance to challenge Chandraprema.
    However, this man Ghanasara s days ar numbered. This man have a mountains of high charges even bigger than Meethotamulla, but for some reasons they have been blocked by the current rulers too, may be they feel if the bugger woudl have been arrested, clashes across the country would have been case.
    Fearlessly, rulers have to react on this murderous creature, who has been soaked human blood of the folks having behaved like an animal. He has no whatsover respect to anyone but to him.
    The kind of thugs should be exposed to the society.
    Just ignoring the buggers KAWIBANA,…. that is an another redherrings to cheat the gulliable masses that would then say, see, how the aggressive monk sings his kawibana.
    Enough is enough this man should be beheaded once for all, in order to leave the reconcilaition process go forward.
    God bless srilanka !

      “Most Venerable Anunayake of the Asgiriya Chapter Wendaruwe Sri Upali Thera said, at a religious event, at the Sri Dalada Maligawa, attended by the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, that President Rajapaksa had not been defeated. Instead, he had been allowed to relax and take over the reins of govt in the future, the prelate said.”

      “The Thera said the people now felt the need for Rajapaksa as the leader more than ever before. “

      Gintota incident is created by Muslims politicians because the local elections are coming. They went with goons to discuss an already settled dispute. Ven. ghanasara scored some points from that. CT is always biased, CT is christian, Tamil and muslim. Chandrasoma may be writing a book to be published just before the election. He is a scoundrel.

    This chap is disgracing the sangha. If he does not believe in Lord Bhuddha’s teachings he should disrobe and go his way into politics or whatever where this type of behaviour is the norm.He is making a mockery of Bhuddhism by doing opposite of what Lord Bhuddha preached.People are welcome to ditch the bhuddha’s teachings and have their own thinking on matters and i for one welcome that because we have to learn to think for ourselves whithout just blindly following other people,but if you want to say that Lord Bhuddha is not right then you should not wear the robes of one of his followers.

    If a hindu priest does not behave the way our gods say a priest should be then we have no option but to sack him from our temple and the word will spread and he will never get a job as a priest in the future.There lies the main difference between Hindu priests and bhuddhist priests.Tolerance of the bhuddhists to misbehaviour and intolerance of hindus towards misbehaviour.

    It is high time the sinhalese kicked this bugger out of the the sangha and ask him to disrobe and move on with his life as a layman only.Then he will bring disrepute only on himself,not bhuddhism.

    Gnanasara relishes being a newsmaker – good or bad news.
    He had a chance and he used it!
    How does one ‘split an ear’?
    Just pull it? Or a bash? Or shout choice filth till the ear splits?
    Or blow whisky breath into the ear?.

    While this comment is totally unacceptable from a Buddhist Monk, the underlying meaning may be suitable for Chandraprema.

    I had a lot of respect for this mans writing about ten years ago. However his recent writing is totally biased. When you read the political column this man writes to `The Island’ on weekends, one wonders whether he think the people of this country are absolute fools. He tries to subvert and twist the truth to promote his political masters.

        Gamarala and shanker

        I am in total agreement with both you however with my own observation. Though he was well respected during the war because that was the kind of bigoted stories he wrote and many in the readership liked and wanted. His banality is increasingly being exposed day by day and noticed by readership.

        Look at the pathetic Shamindra Ferdinando’s writing, still he is milking from Nandikadal.

    The Ginthota incident was also orchestrated by Gnanasara behind the scenes, but he ACTED as a peace maker hoping to score some good points against the mountain of serious cases he has against him. This violent piece of garbage got 3 counts of bail under an hour and had the serious charges amended to lesser ones even after openly disobeying the courts. Sri Lanka is rapidly slipping into a state of lawlessness to the extend that religious thugs are more powerful than political thugs. The sasana is bieng corroded at an unprecedented rate from the inside out, while the mahanayakes are busy using these cheewaradariyos to play political games. If you want to protect buddism, first and foremost the sasana needs to be tamed. What you have now are sanga mudalali’s weaponizing buddism for fame, power and money under the disguise of protecting it from phantom threats. A wise person will see that the sasana itself has turned out to be the biggest and most dangerous threat to the country, because of its members making every effort possible to start a blood bath at every possible turn.

    What does Asgiriya Chapter say about this? Doesn’t its Karaka Saba assemble immediately and denounce this rascal (Chandraprema) for publicly complaining against the Most Venerable Atte Gnasara Thera ?Doesn’t he know that the monks like Rev.Gnasasara Thera never do wrongdoings. Further doesn’t he know that a civilian like him does not have any right to criticize the conduct of a monk like Rev Gnanasara in this Buddhist country in which the Buddhism has been granted the prominence by the constitution? So shall we take action to expel this rascal (Chandraprema) from Buddhism and from this Buddhist Country too for defaming this well disciplined Buddha Puttra .

      Why are we surprised?? This is how ‘Punk monks with Guns’ behave, but what is really surprising is about the silence of the Sanga, the very ‘Sanga’ that is vociferous in political issue always loses their ears and mouths when this punk monk Gnana brays… What is this Gnanes real name??? Who the hell is he??? Does he have many IDs and Passports too???

    Once a member of the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP)
    during the heydays of their insurrection, C.A. Chandraprema
    is now a journalist. There is no question about it.

    However, he is the only one kind in perhaps the whole world.
    He chairs news conferences, takes part in seminars and makes
    political speeches at public meetings. Whether his views are
    good or bad is not the question.

    Can one expect any objectivity from such a person? Can he
    report dispassionately on any issue without allowing his own
    prejudices influencing him? How does one believe such a
    person.

    However, Rev Gnanasara should not have abused him publicly.
    It would have been nicer if he showed this man who has some
    hidden agenda the correct path. Most readers at present do not
    believe Chandraprema because his views are tainted.

      It was wrong. He had never been a JVP member, but a member of the Independent Students’ Union led by Daya Pathirana who was murdered by the JVP. He was a student of the Faculty of Law, but I am not aware whether he has completed his degree or not. But during the JVP insurrection, he had death threats from JVP. But I admit the other versions of Mr. Siva. He does not have single and solid policy on anything. It seems that he turns his policies to his advantage. But we must outright look down upon the conduct of Rev. Gnanasara which gives disgrace to Buddhism.

    By mistake, it seems, CT thinking that there is split and celebrating secretly inside the heart. Sajin and Pillayan has been negotiated by Yahapalanaya and reattached to original places. Yahapalanaya will talk with Gnanam and make sure it is patched up. Past three years they were have proved their ability of dealing out court courts this way, not prosecuting one single criminal.

    It is not a sibling rivalry, for some dirty laundry come out to be cleaned on the public washing machine. .I assure here, no new perl will be spilled out of this.

    But this the usual SLFP-UNP, Chitanta -Yahapalanaya splits; that is making sister companies from the mother company. Splitting the Mullivaikal harvest is different from sharing Central Bank looting. Unlike the Mr.Clean cover ups in Yahapalanaya, once in awhile one of the war heros run out on the road with amude. But it is not shame.

    Gnanam did not reveal, as the symptoms of Yahapalanaya-Chitanata union agreements, what is causing the mouth batting( battling). He has just said he has a file on Chandraperuma. Chandraprema challenged Gnanam if he has one, to go ahead. That Gnanam understood as the extend of the file Chanraperuma having on Gnanam.

    A portrayal of usual Lankawe Lord Buddha’s Religious piousness, Patriotics journalism and the statesmanship of politics. Two coolies checking the gold price of Thalikodies in the open market to assess each other’s networth. .

    It is time this wretched creature is ostracised by the ruling clique, the Clergy, the Buddhist people and the country. It is unfortunate the system permitted Kudu Mervin made it to the Cabinet through Chandikama. He ended up as a multi-millionaire. Gandassara probably gathers inspiration from the likes of the infamous Buddharakita Thero. That he is given a luxurious Mercedes Benz to go about is an example of our deformed values. Do the Mahanayakas have the backbone to leash this part-animal. That will send out a message to the Buddhist population in the country it is time the yellow robe be looked upon as an object of veneration.

    CAC is not my favourite journo – although a hard-working one who knows his politics. He writes exceptionally well. He cannot be scared by cowards in robes. I believe CAC is the son of the very respected Col. Dharmapala. Pity he is a man with an Agenda. He knows which side the bread is buttered – and that is not principled journalism. Or is he a victim of our declining values of a ruptured society. Still, if this ugly incident is not taken seriously free and fear reporting journalists may be gradually lost. Unless this mad monk is taken to task we might have the misfortune of seeing the reincarnation of Buddharakhita of 1958 ill-fame.

    Why is this thug still running loose in the country? He should have been thrown behind bars long time ago for all the trouble he started, which ended up in deaths in Aluthgama. Why is the present leadership afraid to deal severely with these criminals.
    Surely they want to prevent more trouble in this country. They cannot go around like thugs threatening to harm people.

    Some comments have no direction, no breaking mechanism.
    Gnanam is Buddharakkhita Thero? Come on Guys, then shouldn’t he have had killed Old King by now, before Old King losing the election? Gnanam never rejected 100% Ranil, nor accepted 100% Old King. Though it was only a small, Gnanam in fact split the Old King’s votes in the last election. Those SWRD’s guys were purely after money and women. I don’t want to go define Gnanam’s character and go wrong. But it is not like those guys, who were only for money and women. Certainly there is a part in him for Buddhism (t extremism). Unless one know who is his opponent, that one will not effectively oppose his enemy. Gnanam is an open man, unlike the dirty crook journalist. When he was hiding for police, he openly hides in the Justice Ministers facilities. That is how Gnanam is. Gnanam did not say why he started the fight. That is something everyone interested to know, but not to use it save Chandraperuma. At the time of the history, Gnanam is biggest Chandikaraya in the Monks. He openly invited Chandraperuma for a fight. He knows if there is something problem he has to face, not just Old Royals, even Ranil will save him. Chandraperuma, who should have used his journalism to protect people, abused it. But Yahapalanaya will use that occasion to investigate his association with Old Royals. He could not go to police because he knows even Yahapalanaya will not hurt Gnanam.
    Is that Gnanam is guilty because of his radicalism or just because another rotten rubbish has complaints against Gnanam. If Chandraperuma is coal, Sinhala Buddhist will call Gnanam diamond. Pot may call kettle black, but Chandraperuma has say nothing about Gnanam.

    Ven Gnanasara and Ven Chadraperuma believes in triple gem and respect the triple gem like MaRa Bros & Co. I do not see any problem. They are all smart patriots like DJ.
    Why are you all so upset and reacting and give a negetive image of your mother country.

    Good Karma of younger generation will bring a positive change in the SL in the near future.
