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.

    Death is stalking Gnaney…..

    He has come to the reality of life and death in this world.
    There’s nothing he can deny nor can he take back what he said. His Mafia godfather has vanished. We must prosecute all these guys who has blood in their hands.

    There should be a thorough investigation into how Gota operated. How did their operations functioned. The new govt., must explore all stones and expose them in public. How did he order the killings of opponents and innocent people…etc.

    Without doing this no exercise will bring any result for a future for the unity and diversity of the nation.

    ALL NAMES SHOULD BE CHANGED in the Public enterprises and venues that is named after Mahinda.

    Let us see when Gnaney is going to land in prison for all his crimes he committed with sheer show of strength he got from the criminals Rajapakses.

    Look who dug his head out of the shit pile? Please shut up and get lost. The country including the majority sinhala buddists voted MR out solely because of your vile abuse of firstly buddism and then the rest including Muslims and Christians. What ever good MR had done, you managed to negate and destroy MRs image totally. MR was foolish enough to dig his own grave. So your best bet now is read the pansil and try to understand it. Try to practice it and become a true buddist for the firsttime. You clearly don’t have the intelligence nor the intellectual capacity to be productive for this great nation. So please shut up and be lost for ever before you piss off people like Rajitha who will probably lock yourll up which is what you truly deserve. Sri Lanka has voted for a truly inclusive country and want to live as brothers and sisters or sons and daughters of a single flag and nation. Your bull shit has been rejected wholesale and we have had enough of seeing your ugly mug. Obata Abasarani! Ratata budusarani!

      Haha what a loser? Now he is scared that he will lose the luxury vehicle and perks that were offered to him by GOAT and Mahinda.. lets see if he has the balls now to go to places and start abusing people and religious institutions including places of worship without Police and Army escort…. This MAD DOG is a double headed serpent.. look how innocent he acts now.. and check on youtube his inciting speech aka Aluthgamata Aba saranai.. That video is enough evidence to put this phsychopath in jail and lose the keys. Has Dilantha fled to Norway already?…

      When one throws a ball to a wall, it comes back much harder.. Gandayo, raise ur robe and run before you are taken to court where you would be found guilty …like your hit and run case while driving under the influence of alcohol.

    If he’s arrested he’ll get out one way or the other eventually, he should be set on fire like he set the buildings on fire, along with the rest of the morons in the BBS … But In the end, they’re foot soldiers that did the work of the rajapaksas, so actually, they should all be set alight!

    Tamils vote was a protest vote, simple as that. It was not a vote against war crimes investigations because it said so in the manifesto or a vote for unitary state.TNA must clarify the international community on why Tamils voted for My3. Tamils did not give a hoot about the manifesto, they just wanted to get rid of a genocidal regime and it’s leader.

      But as far as MARA is concerned,the votes are for an
      international investigation!He asked to defeat that
      threat and the majority of votes ignored his plea.
      It is Maithree and Co that assured no such thing will
      be supported by his regime.MARA&Co is proud racists
      and all those who glued themselves to this gang are
      racists too whether Tamils or Muslims.People now should
      start to throw them into the bins.Srilanka doesn’t need
      racists to serve them,they only destroy them.

    Fear among rascist like BBS and criminals like Karuna, Pillaiyaan, and Douglas Devaananda and all those who joined Mahinda and his family, Particularly those who in the Gotapaya’s unofficial assasination group are now trying to intrude into the Maithiri side. Similarly those who joined Mahinda group for corrupting the nation also trying to intrude inside this group. Sometimes circumstances may arise Maithiri group need the support of those hardcore criminals and opportunist like GL Peries in order to implement some of the 100 day programmes.

    It is very dangerous to include those criminals, corrupters and opportuistics inside a group of people who are really committed to the implementation of the good governance proposals. If that happens, it will be worse than Mahinda regime. I am not advising to take revenge against those who were supported for the Mahinda Government.However, they should be brought into the justice system if there are evidences and resonable allegations against those individuals or groups.

    Meya totta baba dan,

    I saw my own eyes homes destroyed by the violence erupted after their meeting,
    He should be prosecuted for inciting racial hatred.
    They have to be interrogated and find out who really funded them?
    I am merely speculating here, It could be a trade mafia that wanted to destroy Muslim Businesses or a foreign hand that wanted to destablise the country.

    Attack on Fashion bug and etc

      Yes- It looks like foreign hand or business interests that supported. Suddenly he was travelling in expensive jeeps with security vehicles. Where did he get this money and vehicles. From GR and MR or foreign money to destabilise this country ???

      There was no rape at Fashion Bug and there was an incident in a garage on the same road. They made it an excuse to damage Fashion Bug. Look at the number of rapes taking place all over the country, does BBS take action against these also. There was an attempt by him ( speeches made in Kandy in March 2013) to destroy Muslim businesses.

      Anyway the present Government is indebted to BBS to bring them into power !!!

      This safron robed man is a curse to entire humanity.

      We the srilanken buddhists should not rally round to his BBS.

      If this kind of hate speech was held in London, what could have been the reaction from English parliament, Srinath ?

      SO tell us why former President ignored BBS monk speech that took the lives of innocient people in the aftermath of that. … ? You guys supported MR, but on what basis you guys supported that aggressive man Mahinda Jarapakshe ?

      Please help the rural folks- the majoirity folks getting the message across. This kind of pseudo monks should be kept away from being active – not to repeat that kind of attacks against humanity again.

      Be them muslims, sinhala, burghers, tamils we should all have equal rights.

    This Gomasara deserves Welikada or Hell. New goverment should immediately arrest these street dogs and also detain the leaders who was running these goons behind screen in MaRa regime. GR,MR, NR, BR and Wimale all should be arrested and investigated for all the crimes they did. The funds which they have should be brought to Treasury. Thats what all Sri Lankans wish at the moment.

    In Tamil there is a saying that a person tries to hide a big pumpkin in a plate of rice. This is what he is doing. I do not want to disgrace Buddhism by calling this guy a Buddhist priest. With all the evidence that is out there, for him to say he did not have a campaign against the Muslims is to say the least – a diabolical lie. It is because of him that MR lost the Muslim votes in total. Sunday Times reported that the former President had said that Muslims did not vote for him. Did he expect the Muslim votes after supporting BBS without reining this guy. He allowed that infamous rally in Alutgama which led to the pogrom. Repeated requests by Muslim civil society organisation and members of his government including Faizer Mustapha to stop this rally fell on deaf years. I cannot imagine fool hardiness of MR allowing this rally. Take time to listen to this speech and see CT for the previous articles on this subject. Please see his speeches. Still I am curious to find out why he allowed this rally. Did he and his advisors think that by antogonising the Tamil and the Muslims, he will get the support of 70 % of the Sinhala votes. I can vouch for the fact that the most of the Sinhalese were against the hate campaign of BBS. BBS had the blessings of the previous regime.
    In fact all the Muslim MPs ( may be not Azwer and Cader) asked for an appointment with MR to discuss this issue but he never gave them time.
    Perhaps this is the reason that Faizer Mustapha crossed over.

You deserve to be in the cesspit of history. You ignorant fool can only survive in SL and get away with it, protected by racist and corrupt politicians. If in any other, you would have met your fate with a Charlie Hebdo style attack to blow you and your outfit away to thy kingdom come. Just piss off now and stop taking us to be some kind of alien species just fallen from the sky. The whole world knows better. But hey, you deserve some praise for promoting crony MR’s downfall.

    This ‘funny Sadhu’ bigot must be booked for inciting racial hatred. All the evidence is there to put him in jail forever. We Muslims and our Christian brothers bore the brunt of this man’s wrath, misleading the general public with false and unsubstantiated claims and diabolic lies, reading quotes from our Holy Book taken completely out of context, and making a mockery of what we hold sacred. He has blood soaked hands as is personally responsible for the death of at least 6 citizens of this country. The government of MR did not say a word of condemnation of his dastardly acts, instead provided him with security escorts and placed luxury vehicles at his beck and call. That says much of the corrupt government, which is another matter by itself. However the response was clearly amplified in the election results. Now what is he trying to whitewash his misadventures and trying to fool the public by asking for the appointment of special commisions to inquire. He relies on the twist and turn of a boneless tongue to wrangle his way out of tight situations, and presumes he can get away when cornered in every instance. We must be dumb fools if we are to fall to his mischievous ploys. The best we can do is to request media to ignore his press conferences thus isolating him, and showing their distaste for such tom foolery. Woe be unto him.

    That video “Bodu Bala Sena Meeting – Aluthgama” is quite sufficient as evidence of hate speech and incitement to violence. As a result of that speech at least three people were murdered and millions worth property were looted and burnt down by an “imported” Sinhala mob. The new government must prosecute Gnanasara to conviction, and incarcerate him for a few years.

    The Government have a duty to demonstrate to the Country they mean it when they say that they will uphold the Rule of Law.
