BBS Wishes New President And PM – Claims They’ve Never Been Anti-Muslim

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) organisation has stressed upon the fact that they have never promoted anti-Muslim campaigns nor used hatred or violence as a tool in their activities.

In a statement issued to wish the new President and Prime Minister, the organisation has stated that since its establishment in 2012, they have only worked towards safeguarding Sinhala Buddhists under a clear vision and plan but that certain comments they made have been misinterpreted and exploited to promote the notion that they are an anti-Muslim group.

“We have never at any point used hatred or violence as a tool but due to certain actions carried out by other groups, the media as well as certain anti-Buddhist groups have misunderstood us,” the organisation has stated.

The BBS has noted that although their initial plan was to remain neutral at the Presidential elections that just concluded, they decided to support Mahinda Rajapaksa as a result of the wrongful ideas that were included in the election manifesto of the common candidate regarding religious tensions in Sri Lanka and the overall opposition in the common Opposition camp concerning the BBS.

They have stated they view the votes of the North/Eastern Tamils as a deciding factor in the election.

“Although the North/Eastern votes are now being interpreted as a vote cast to oust the former President who won the war than a true reflection of their support for the new President, we observe it through an unbiased mindset. We think that their voting for a Sinhalese leader and working to ensure his victory is a blow against the separatist forces and various international groups that attempt to divide this country,” the BBS has said.

The group has stated that it shows the will of the Tamils to live in a united country and has emphasized on the fact that the government should work hard in order to ensure it turns into reality than it simply remaining an expectation.

“This is a golden opportunity for this government to win the trust of Sinhala Buddhists and this is a chance that we should seize to rid ourselves of the labels of being racists and a creation of the former government,” it has further noted.

The BBS has also called upon the government to consider gravely, the issues they have highlighted during the past thirty months concerning the safeguarding of Buddhism and Buddha Shasana and the security of Buddhists, pointing out it would help in establishing the trust of the Sinhala Buddhists in the new government.

      I am a buddhist. But had I been a muslim from Aluthgama, I would have attacked the thug Ghanasara not being able to digest his hate speech. So think the many known to me. We are all equal being human beings with the logo _SRILANKEN. So, nobody has right to go above the law. Ghanasara should pay the damage made to the innocient people in ALuthgama and other areas during the 5 years.

    Unlike the Jathika Hela Urumaya, who sent the Srialnkan culture and Heritage to Cameron , Harper, Pillai, Norway and EU for a refit,on behalf of the Elite, Anglicans , Vellas and the SLMC, .BBS stood by the great majority of the poor rural Srilankan inhabitants.

    Hopefully they will continue to o so for the nearly 6 Million of them an their extended families..

    These inhabitants need BBS to prevent Privatization, Culling Public Service jobs held by the poor rural people in the South,, Selling their valuable Roads , Airports, and Sea Ports to Foreign Pension Funds and liquidating the CWE and the CTB.

    And selling off public land at mates rates.

    The inhabitants in the South in particular need to protect the development they have enjoyed under the previous Regime.

    Can the poor rural inhabitants depend on SLMC Minister of Urban Development Mr Hakeem?.

      Sumanasekera – “These inhabitants need BBS to prevent Privatization, Culling Public Service jobs held by the poor rural people in the South,, Selling their valuable Roads , Airports, and Sea Ports to Foreign Pension Funds and liquidating the CWE and the CTB.”

      Yeah, right, they “need them” like a hole in the head! It was your bunch of heroes that were doing everything you mentioned to “the poor rural people ..”. You are either completely crazy or brain dead to be spouting the crap you do. Why don’t you give it a break and get some treatment for your delusions?

      “BBS stood by the great majority of the poor rural Srilankan inhabitants”. No they didn’t, they were standing by their own agendas which had nothing to do with the rural poor. If they had, their sponsors would not have lost the election.

    Muslims wants to continue converting small business places to ancient mosques, using businesses to destroy sri lanka – for example, muslims women cover the whole body while sinhala girls show every thing they have, all sold by muslims fashion houses and prosecute BBS too, BBS don’t like the rampage by muslims.

    Except one muslim, no one else talked in CT how muslims extremists destroyed sinhala neighbourhoods in Aluthgama or how muslims beat a buddhist monk. IF newspapers the real truth, muslims could have seen more violence from buddhists.

      Jim your slip is showing. In a competitive world, when there is a demand there must always be supply to meet those demands, or else the market and businesses dont or cannot survive. Why should it be any different to Muslim stores when all are competing in the same common market. You are looking thru warped and shaded glasses as is usually the case. But it must be said, most Muslim establishments take calculated risks and succeed and thereby move ahead to become market leaders, while the rest are only market followers.

      Jim, for someone who seems to have had a half decent education, you are a moron. What the hell is wrong with Muslims converting their business places ancient mosques? Would you rather they convert it to kasippu joints? or gambling nooks? or similar illegal, and immoral joints?

      They sell salwar kameez, sarees, scarfs, abhayas, and similar modest clothes as well, the sinhalese are free to buy them and weaar them. if you actually like sinhalese women to cover more, then encourage them, without spewing hate and bigotry against mulims.

      Where the hell are muslims rampaging?? are you out of your effing mind?? Muslims are as part and parcel of Sri Lanka as the sigiriya rock, they will try and get ahead in life like any other sri lankan would. if you don’t like it, you can get [Edited out]

    This cancer called BBS must be excised. MS has a massive responsibility to give back to the minorities the safety, dignity and human rights that is their rights, the rights that the BBS was tasked to take away from the minorities by Gota with the blessings of King Kong. MS must not have any fear or fervour. He must not play into the hands of the Chauvinists. Thevarapperuma said that Gnanasara should be incarcerated in a mental asylum. If the people in Sri Lanka believe Gnanasara is sane then the only place that he belongs to is in the jail. Lock him up for his crimes and throw away the keys. Sri Lankans deserve a better dawn.

    This horrible man is not a Buddhist monk.
    He does not act as Buddhist monk.
    He is the man who created racism in our peaceful community.
    Gotabaya and Mahinda gave him a power to talk disgracefully and destroy peaceful environment.
    Good people have five precepts but this man does not have at least five precepts.
    He must be taken to justice and put him in a jail.

    corruption and crime must be investigated in a LIFO(Last In First out method)and the perpetrators arrested and charged and sentenced.It should be done in a orderly manner starting with January 2015 and continue backwards each month.Then there will be know accusations of any witch hunt and those who might commit offences in future will get the message.

    He is breaking an important rule in any religion – to not lie. All we have to do is look at the previous youtube videos, and there you can see the hatred and lies about Muslims and his attempt to cause problems for them.
    He must be a real mutt to think people are going to be fooled by his innocent act. He has been the cause of attacks on Mosques and Churches, businesses belonging to non Buddhists, and the recent killings of Muslims in Aluthgama. He is a terrorist wearing saffron robes. He must be held accountable for inciting mobs, kicked out of the clergy, and treated like a pariah. I hope the new government deals with this vermin severely.

      Yes Betsy, understandable. But spare a thought for those who lost a loved one, a father, a brother in this senseless killing instigated by this rogue monk. People not here to express their true feelings. How would you feel if you were one from those people?

      There is always a limit to patience. Justice has not been served yet, and this is our only means of expressing our disgust and contempt at his shenanigans. He did a lot to damage the communal harmony that existed at the time, and now he is on another mission to clear his name. Do you really think he deserves to be spared?

      He now tries to defend himself of not having played any role role in the Aluthgama/Beruwela debacle and suggestively blame it on the Muslims as having foisted on themselves, or speculate on some outside source who acted irrationally to his speech on that day.

      In another interview (available on this same CT Forum), he draws focus on himself by sounding dead serious with complaints about the inefficiency and callous approach of the ruling and bygone politicians to ratify in Parliament the ‘Temples Lands Ordinance Bill’ and another Bill relating to Buddha Sasana Ministry. He doesn’t even realize that they don’t think it is important and choose to ignore him. They avoid him like the plague. In this way he tries to garner attention to his cause, through sympathy and support to his supposedly noble cause. But it seems, still no one is buying it. He must be held responsible and justice must be served, if we Muslims are to heal the wounds of discord and discontent.

    These BBS thugs tried so hard to provoke Muslims into taking weapons, so that they can show a new boogeyman to Sinhalese majority people. This is a plan of Mahinda Rajapaksa so he can continue to be the dictator. Thank god Muslims are intelligent enough to not to fall in this trap. They evaded the trap and used votes as their weapon.

    BBS, you are a disgrace to Buddhism, based on the doctrine of Maithri preached by Lord Buddha. Some of your promoters have flown back to the countries from where they came. Get lost, take the next flight out of Sri Lanka, because you are a liability to all political parties backed by you.

    This person camouflaged in robes has a serious bi-polar disorder. Further more he is a born-again terrorist.
    He should be put in a secure location is a distant place and just for extra security the key to his cage thrown away …

    This animal has ruined the name of Lord Buddha and all Buddhism for all of us.

    I am Sri Lankan, Muslim, Christian,Hindu & Buddhist. I am Sinhalese, Tamil and Moor.

    BBS should be disbanded completely. They should never be allowed to raise their ugly head. They are the devils for the downfall of the previous regime.
    In Every BBS meeting they targeting the muslims and creating hatred among the communities.
    Now is the right time to take them into custody so that it will be a lesson for every body who tries to create mischief in the country. Of course BBS acted with the blessings of the Defence Secretary.

    It must be our commitment to Free Speech and reverence to the robe that has saved the likes of Gandasara Thera and the BBS from being put in prison for their blatant incitement to racial violence, despite his plea of innocence the opposite has been captured in video. The mere success of Gandasara’s speeches in Aluthgama etc. gave the wrong signals to the Rajapakses, who ended up supporting the BBS and as events turned, losing – Hoisted up by its own petard. Christianity has the means to defrock their rogue priests, beats me why Buddhism do not have a similar mechanism to disrobe this evil Buddhist Monk and let him face the consequences of the law as an ordinary citizen.

    This idiotic so called priest should apologise to all Buddhists in Sri Lanka, for all the damage he and his movement done to the country. Today there is no much respect to Buddhists in S/L because of the work of these idiots. Let all Buddhists get together and crush this movement, so that the majority of the Buddhists in the country can live peacefully.

    Because of this Gnanasara nut case, my king-DUMB was “ABASARANUNG” on Jan 8th. Yes the “Muhammadians” crucified me even before I could pay homage to the most reverent Holy Father. This must be what people refer to as “Holy $hit”!
