BBS To Launch A Policy Framework To Grapple Rising Threats Against Buddhism

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) today announced they will be launching a policy framework shortly containing recommendations to uplift Buddhism and the Buddhashasana in the country, which they are planning to present to President Rajapaksa and the Opposition leader.

DilantheBBS CEO Dilanthe Winathanage speaking at a media briefing today said they will be launching the framework to the public once its content is finalized and added they are hoping for the framework content to be welcomed by a candidate at the upcoming Presidential election.

“We will pledge our support to whoever agrees to absorb the recommendations in the policy framework into his/her election manifesto,” he said.

According to Withanage one of the main facts that will be highlighted through the policy framework that is currently in a draft state, is the recognition of Sri Lanka as a Sinhala Buddhist state and implementing necessary measures to grapple with the rising threats against Buddhism in Sri Lanka.

Withanage had added that if none of the candidates welcome their framework, they would take measures to ensure that a separate candidate is fielded through the support of the BBS in order to ensure vital interests of the Buddhist community are secured and BBS campaigns and agendas are promoted.

The BBS policy framework is to be completed and launched to the public before the end of the year.

    Oh really!!! I never knew there were threats against Buddhism in SL. I only knew that only the Buddhists were threatening everyone else in SL. Someone should catch this low life pig gnanasara, lift his orange bed sheet a[Edited out] with a stick and chase him away, maybe into the Indian ocean.

    Let me tell you the game plan of BOORU BALU SENA in consultation with MARA THE MURDERER.

    Obviously none of the candidates will accept these idiotic proposals and then the BALU SENA will field any candidate just to steal some votes from the common candidate and thereby back MARA THE MURDERER.

    UNFORTUNATELY, THE FOOLISH SINHALESE MASSES WILL ALSO FALL PREY.

    DON’T EVER THINK, BALU SENA, THAT YOU CAN FOOL US. IT IS THE FOOLS YOU WILL FOOL.

    IN THE END, ABASARANAI TO SRI LANKA AND YOU PONNASARA CAN WINE,DINE WITH WOMEN AND DRINK DRIVE AS WELL.

    TRULY WE ARE A MIRACLE OF ASIA, ARE’NT WE, TO HAVE HANDED OVER THE REINS OF A BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY TO SADIST BARBARIANS LIKE YOU/MARA AND EVERYONE ELSE MAINTAIN A STOIC SILENCE.

    WHEN CAN THE FOOLS UNDERSTAND THIS PLAIN TRUTH.

      There is only one thing to do – [Edited out] Gota.
      Parabakaran tried to destroy the country and failed eventually and now Gotapayya is trying to destroy its people, will fail too.

      Gandasara is nothing but a [Edited out] with a foul mouth.
      Its Gotapaya who is holding the reins with the blessings of Mara.

      Gotapaya and Pakistan wants this regime to stay in power for long. The only way to be in power is doping the racist majority every now and then.

    Dear Sinhala Buddhists and Mara(MaRa) following BBS,

    “The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) today announced they will be launching a policy framework shortly containing recommendations to uplift Buddhism and the Buddhashasana in the country, which they are planning to present to President Rajapaksa and the Opposition leader.”

    The Enlightened Buddha already taught as to how to do it. Blame the Sinhala “Buddhist” Racism and Caste discrimination for that.

    Read the Tipitaka (Tripitaka), and its summary given by many other such as Ven. Walpola Rahuala, Ven. Narada Thero and many others.

    What some of the Monks in the temple do is abuse boys and women, eat three ,means and put on weight. Have you seen a thin monk? Most are overweight.

    For the current set of Sinhala Buddhist monks, it is not about Buddha’s teachings.. It is about maintaining their hegemony, and keeping the low caste out of the Nikayas. Buddha never taught.

    Sinhala “Buddhist” monks use the racism and lies of Mahawansa to teach “Buddhism” and Racism. Read:

    Mahavamsa- An Insult To The Buddha! By Sharmini Serasinghe –

    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)”!”

    The plight of the Sinhala `DALITS`- Karava, Durava, Salagama, Berava and Rodi. Caste discrimination in Sinhala society.

    http://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2011/9/70564_space.html

    “The 13th century Sinhala literary work, the Pujavaliya went on to assert that a Buddha would never be born in the Govigama caste The Govigama reaction was swift. Kandyan Buddhist civil law as later documented in the Niti Nighanduwa, placed the Govigama at the top of an elaborately ordered caste hierarchy. “

    “The Kandyan Buddhist clergy – the Siam Nikaya – DENIED ENTRY into the Buddhist monkhood to the non-Govigama. They EXCLUDED THE KARAVE. This led wealthy Karave merchants in the maritime districts to finance the journey of Ambagahapitiya Gnanawimala Thera to Amarapura in Burma for the ordination into the Buddhist monkhood in 1800 AD. While the newly founded Amarapura nikaya had 21 sub-sects defined on caste lines (i.e. Karave, Salagama and Durave), it nonetheless offered a rare opportunity for the Karave to join the Buddhist religious order. “

    “Other Karave ABANDONED BUDDHISM ALTOGETHER AND CONVERTED TO ROMAN CATHOLICISM to seek caste emancipation. 50% of the Karave caste might well be Christian today. At present, Karave Christian youth have the best education outcomes in Sinhala society. “

      “Unfortunate that we live in interesting times.”

      On the contrary I am looking forward to a “Buddhist-Hindu peace zone in this part of the world”.

      Its going to be a fantastic time.

      Please read the full report below:

      Lanka’s BBS wants ties with RSS to form ‘peace zone’ in S Asia
      Press Trust of India | Colombo October 7, 2014 Last Updated at 17:15 IST

      A controversial Sri Lankan Buddhist nationalist group, accused of fanning communal tensions here, today claimed it is in talks with the RSS to create a “Buddhist-Hindu peace zone” in South Asia to counter Islamic extremism in the region.

      “Discussions are at a high level with the RSS. We are having a dialogue with the RSS as well as Buddhist organisations in India,” Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) chief and Buddhist monk Galagodaatte Gnanasara told reporters.

      The group said it was seeking an alliance with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in India.

      “We think we can have a Buddhist-Hindu peace zone in this part of the world. Our discussions are on that,” he said.

      The BBS has been linked to several hate attacks against Muslims in the Buddhist-majority nation in June that left four people dead.

      Last month, BBS forged an alliance with Myanmar’s 969 movement, a Buddhist group also linked to anti-Muslim riots in that country.

      They had invited a radical Buddhist Myanmarese monk to address its special convention in Colombo in September, which was vehemently opposed by Muslim groups.

      The Opposition has accused the Rajapaksa government of complicity with the BBS on their anti-Muslim campaign.

    WELCOME TO RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM AND TERRORISM….. SO its a threat they pose to MR or even RW… IF you are NOT with us…you are against us… G.W.Bush after the attack on the world trade center in NY…that started the WARS in Afghanistan and Iraq…which has gone viral and spread to other countries… IF Dilantha along with Galabodaththe Gandassara are not reined in or even sent to serve time for their involvement in the Aluthgama and other BARBARIC incidents they would be the monster which would kill the ones who created them. Pretty soon we may have an incident like where SWRD Banda was gunned down by an Orange robe wearing MONK ey. Moreover becasue of these guys the likes if ISIS Taliban and other extremist would set foot in SL… these idiots are inviting trouble without the knowledge…

    “a policy framework shortly containing recommendations to uplift Buddhism and the Buddhashasana in the country”

    Could the BBS include a compulsory clause binding all Sinhala/Buddhists to convert themselves to Buddhism and assure the public that these converts would learn and adhere to Buddha’s Teaching.

    BBS should ensure that no one would be allow to practice Sinhala/Buddhism in any part of the island.

    Those who fail to observe these cardinal principles would be subjected to deportation order and immediately removed from this island and sent to Lumbini Nepal or Bihar.

      Courtesy – Madam Jayalalitha, PM Narendra Modi (because of fear) & Courtesy – LTTE Diaspora because of funds (Doesn’t matter how and where they come from as long as is its money)

      Why this sudden ‘Sathwa karunawa” for the Tamils?
      Is it Kabaragoya-Thalagoya or Hypocrisy?

      You stupid fools, The Tamils will never ever forget you murderers for what you have done to them since the 50s up until now.

    The drama queens, and thugs, in saffron robes are making mountains out of molehills and hallucinating. There is no danger for Buddhists in the predominantly Buddhist nation, run by Buddhists, and a Buddhist military.

    They are simply banging the drums of hatred and instilling fear on the majority, to make them suspicious of the minority. They also seem to be doing the work of the Rajapaksa’s; who want to make sure they will get the votes of the Sinhalese people, to win elections, even at the cost of turning this country into an ethnic war zone again. It is a shame that many people are unable to grasp the fact that the minority could never become the majority, or take over the country. It is simply a far fetched BS theory, which the gullible may believe.

    Excellent planning by BBS. This was the obvious next step after the alignment with Myanmar.

    Thailand, Nepal, Bhutan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos should all join this coalition. Ven. WiraThu and Gnanasara should be invited to those countries so that they can indoctrinate the Sangh and guide them in the path of self-defense and resistance to barbaric Islam. They should not lose one day to get this started.

    Korea, Japan etc. can also support this. European Union, take note! Before 2050 when the followers of the butcher Prophet will lay claim to many cities in Europe as Moslem majority cities you should also join with the BBS/JSS coalition. The movement should be global, with all like minded organizations, leaders, parties, countries coming together to defeat Islamic terror.

    The progress made by the BBS, their astute planning and impeccable execution are admirable. People should rally around them in Lanka (henceforth I hope to call it by the proposed name Sinhale, and thus become the first to use this term in these forums).

      Even RSS, the most anti-Muslim, racist party of India does not want to join BBS. It is like even Al Qaeda distances itself from USIS. BBS is trying every trick on earth to impress the Buddhists but no one is bothered to look at them.

    True colours of what the BBS wants for the country has now been released, with name change, date of independence changed etc, etc. This is very similar to IS or Taliban. The BBS is an extremist group which needs to be taken seriously by the state and banned. Their funding must be tracked down both inwards and locally by the banks and Central Bank. Global intelligence agencies should keep their eyes and ears glued to what BBS and fringe groups do.

      How can this be done when the financier and protector of the BBS is the State itself? By the way Hooter, nice pair.

    If Gnanasara Thera is the epitome of Buddhism, it has taken a wrong turn somewhere. As a youngster, I used to visit the Maligakande temple frequently as it was near my school (Clifton Girls High School) in Dematagoda but I was not a Buddhist but keen to learn other religions. The young novices who used to talk to me were so knowledgeable and full of compassion they could run rings round the likes of Gnanasara Thera who is so full of hate.
