The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has annonuced that they will select and declare a leader who can promote their Sinhala Buddhist campaigns in politics, during a Sangha Sammelanaya (Summit of Buddhist monks) on Sunday.
BBS General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara had stated that Sri Lankan Buddhists are in dire need of a leader who can ensure their rights are won and had added that they will be taking up the task of choosing an individual capable of leading the Sinhala Buddhists.
He had said that politicians who ‘barked’ at Buddhists were taught a good lesson at the recently held Uva provincial polls.
“We have turned into an invalid community in our own motherland. The Tamils with just a 12% and the Muslims making up for just 7% of the population, are demanding their rights and yet no one calls it racism. They are demanding for the whole pound of flesh,” Gnanasara said.
Furthermore he had stated that it is time for all structures in the country to change into a system that is governed by true Buddhist values and he had added that the BBS is aligning the country towards such a system.
