Buddhist Monk Led Mob Sabotages Meetings Again, This Time On LLRC In Batticaloa

On Saturday July 27, 2013 a workshop discussion between community leaders and experts on land law and policy conducted by the National Peace Council in Batticaloa was forcibly disrupted by a Buddhist monk of the area and his supporters.

Violent disruption of educational programme demonstrates threat to pluralism, multi-culturalism and religious tolerance, says the Peace Council .

We publish below the NPC statement in full;

As part of its post-war peace building initiatives the National Peace Council (NPC) has been conducting an educational programme on the LLRC report in different parts of the country, including Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Colombo, Matara, Galle, Jaffna, Vavuniya, Mannar, Puttalam, Ampara, Kurunegala, Batticaloa and Trincomalee. These LLRC workshops have been very popular with community leaders and local level government officials of all ethnicities. On Saturday July 27, 2013 a workshop discussion between community leaders and experts on land law and policy conducted by the National Peace Council in Batticaloa was forcibly disrupted by a Buddhist monk of the area and his supporters.

The workshop that was disrupted was part of NPC’s follow-up activities, done at the request of the participants themselves. Its purpose was to educate these community leaders on the government’s rules and regulations and provide a legal point of view on land issues. There were religious leaders and community leaders from resettlement areas representing different ethnic and religious backgrounds. The disruption of the NPC event is similar to that experienced by other civil society groups who have faced similar obstructions. The pattern of incidents that have taken place in the recent past, and of which NPC has been the latest victim, is an indication of the threat to pluralism, multi-culturalism and religious tolerance in the country.

The function of the Police is to act under the Criminal Procedure Code and the Police Ordinance and uphold the Rule of Law. However, the general ethos in cases such as the one NPC encountered is to let the perpetrators off without legal action leaving space for them to act again with impunity. The right to freedom of association and free speech is guaranteed in the constitution. At this time, when the country is preparing for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka, and also for the Commonwealth People’s Summit (in which NPC is playing a supportive role by being a part of the sub-committee), we ask the government to take the necessary steps to protect the space for civil society groups to function freely, without fear and harassment.

      From “Good? Bad? Who Knows?” upcoming book by Ven. Ajahn Brahm

      The Container and the Content

      “A local journalist called and asked me “What would you do, Ajahn Brahm, if someone took a Buddhist Holy Book and flushed it down the toilet?”
      Without hesitation I answered “Sir, if someone took a Buddhist Holy Book and flushed it down the toilet, the first thing I would do is call a plumber!”
      When the journalist finished laughing, he confided in me that that was the most sensible answer he had heard.
      Then I went further. I explained that someone may blow up many statues of the Buddha, burn down Buddhist temples or kill Buddhist monks and nuns; they may destroy all of this but I will never allow them to destroy Buddhism. You may flush a Holy Book down a toilet, but you will never flush forgiveness, peace and compassion down a toilet.
      The book is not the religion, nor the statue, the building or the priest. These are only “containers.”
      What does the book teach us? What does the statue represent? What qualities are the priests supposed to embody? This is the “content”.
      When we recognize the difference between the container and the contents, then we will preserve the contents even when the container is being destroyed.
      We can print more books, build more temples and statues and even train more monks and nuns, but when we lose our love and respect for others and ourselves and replace it with violence, then the whole religion has gone down the toilet.”

      Sammy,

      1. Rabies infected Theravada Sinhala Buddhist Monk.

      2. They want to maintain the Theravada Buddhist Monk Hegemony at the expense of the people.

      3. Buddhism Nirvana = Extinction.

      4. In nature, the purpose of a flower is to make another flower by way of pollination and continue life, and continue the RNA and DNA. In Buddhism, it is extinction. So, flowers are plucked from trees, and offered to buildings and clay statutes, the process of extinction of the flowers and trees.

      The desire of the tree is to make the flower and keep making seeds and tress.That is nature.

      What a convoluted philosophy? Is this Religion? Is this what these BBS are following?

    NPC should file a case and take the monk to court. The only way to hold the Balu Sena accountable is to take them to court and see them locked up behind bars.

    If NPC as an organization fails to do this and go to court and ensure that those who disrupted the event have to pay for threatening, peace harmony and multicultural co-existence – then NPC might has well shut its doors and donors and stop pretending to be working for peace with justice for the minorities.

      Don Stanley,

      Absolutely, and Expose these Buddhist Criminals.

      Budu Balu Sena needs to be challenged and exposed.

      BBS is Evil, poisonous ideology, not Buddhism.

      What does Buddhism Teach?

      1. Extinction= Nirvana, that is against nature.

      Nature wants to live.

      Religion is the opium of the masses, and hegemony of the Monks.

      2, They should go after gambling, law and order, political corruption.

      3. What they are after is Monk Hegemony.

      Here is support for this position.

      Ben Silva claims he is a Buddhist. He goes on to say that Nirvana or Nibbana the ultimate goal of Buddhism is extinction. He says:

          Hameed,

          You are mistaken, you must have seen the donkey in the morning in the mirror.

          May be you had a different evolutionary path than the apes.

          http://humanorigins.si.edu/resources/intro-human-evolution

          Humans are primates. Physical and genetic similarities show that the modern human species, Homo sapiens, has a very close relationship to another group of primate species, the apes. Humans and the great apes (large apes) of Africa — chimpanzees (including bonobos, or so-called “pygmy chimpanzees”) and gorillas — share a common ancestor that lived between 8 and 6 million years ago. Humans first evolved in Africa, and much of human evolution occurred on that continent. The fossils of early humans who lived between 6 and 2 million years ago come entirely from Africa.

            Al Amarasiri talks only about Buddhism is evil and Buddhists are criminals. I say Al Amarasiri is a half Muslim, half human coconut donkey who copy bits and peaces from evolution and etc. And that is why he is covering up violence by Muslims and highlighting BBS as criminal gang. Idiot thinks fossils and science provide answers for everything.

            Now, read the main news of the national papers, today. I bet the idiot hadn’t read that at Panadura High Court yesterday, six Muslims who belongs to a Wahhabi sect was sent to gallows for ganging-up with religious rioters and chopping and murdering two Muslims who belongs to a different sect (Ahamadia) in 2003. But no Muslim has been maimed or killed as a result of BBS meetings to date.

              @ Patriot,
              You are absolutely correct. Same like thousands of cases in sri lanka between Buddhist killing each other. But between muslims it is very rare cases that is the reason media shows as high. But in the Buddhist community it is like day to day life (killing, raping etc..)I really fed-up of reading those news. This is all nothing to do with religion it is called HUMAN STUPIDITY.
              Are you living on Planet???

              Patriot, Please learn to distinguish between Wahhabis and other Muslim sects. Sensible people also distinguish between the Bodu Bala Sena, and other such extremist sects, and the rest of true Buddhist Sri Lankans! Hope you are one of the true Buddhist Sri Lankans!

              Patriot,

              Amarasiri never defended the Wahhabis and any of their criminal activities.

              Amarasiri never defended the BBS and any of their criminal activities.

              Amarasiri always pointed out the criminal activities and double standards of the Wahhabis, the BBS, the LTTE, the politicians and the Rapists, who get in the way of an Egalitarian society, by using their Myths.

              If you belong to any of the groups, expect Amarasiri’s wrath when they go out of civilized behavior.

              ” six Muslims who belongs to a Wahhabi sect was sent to gallows for ganging-up with religious rioters and chopping and murdering two Muslims who belongs to a different sect (Ahamadia) in 2003.”

              These Wahhabis are doing that in Pakistan, and other places.

              The is why Amarasiri has always labelled the Wahhabis as Agents of Satan, the devil. Only, the Devils kill. However, Monk Somarama did kill prime minister SWRD Bandaranaike in 1959, and many Buddhist Monks did participate in the riots of 1958.

    This is when its embarrassing to be Sri Lankan – but then again, just imagine how embarrassed this imbecile’s mother must be! Honestly, it makes me wonder how these ‘monks’ were educated. It worries me that young boys are given by their parents to follow this path. How are these kids integrated into society? What contact do they have with Tamil and Muslim children? Do they have the opportunity to make friends of different ethnicities? How are they educated? The Government should seriously reconsider violating child rights via the religious path. BBS? What the hell do you stand for??? People seriously worship them?!?! Wake up!!

      These are the off springs of 90% lower middle class families who find difficult to raise them and given them to Buddhist temples at tender age of seven years, purely to fulfill their basic needs including Free board and lodging, education, health and other daily needs.

      This is no difference to adoption homes for Children while given them training to be future Buddhist Monks.

      All of these children do not know what Buddhism is, leave alone becomming a samanera at age seven.

      They miss their Parental and siblings love, their friends and relatives affection, playmates,friends, music, culture and arts.

      Also they miss society to interact and to understand other culturs.

      Therefore they automatically build up an envy and jealoursy with the society from their tender age.

      Moreover if they are caught to wrong monk masters, they could be easily brain washed,manupulated, false doctrine been preached, mentally, physically and sexually abused.

      When I see these BBS thugs taking these small innocent samaneras along with them on protests and other protest marches,sathyagrahas etc, I see that they are already been given training to be the next generation of Terrorists, riorters and protesters etc.

      They are not been trained on Lord Buddha’s spiritual values but trained as protesters and anti social elements. We saw how a Buddhist Priest fasting unto death on a bed on tap water issue.

      This has to be stopped to save our society from these corrupt, power hungry rioters and thugh who are brainwashing next generation of Buddhist monks.

      According to statistics 80% of these monks leave robes as soon as they Graduate. They get married and settle down leaving the Sasana to samaneras who are uneducated and unqualified.

      These BBS are the left over uneducated failures coming from low income families.

      The sick rabies infected dogs must be stopped now before they bite our Lay society and spreading rabies around withn their own Buddhist Sharia Law.

      Should be banned them as a Terrorist Cult. Better now than regret later.

    Or burn all Sinhalese Buddhist temples in oversees after takiing monks out.
    This is just to open Gon Raja MR’s eyes to see things bit clearer. Gon Raja has to stop these nonesense, nobody else could do it.
    As somebody pointed out, Buddha in a previous life killed a captain of a ship to save 400 men according to one Jathaka KATHA,

    But the issue is this sort of acts are very critical and considered as criminal conduct in these civilized countries. No one will do it even with good intention.

      Have you heard about stories about sexual misconduct of catholic priests in Australia and other parts of west. Who are the people brought up these issues and pressing Gov, police, bishops to step in and resolve these issues and prevent them happening again? Are they Buddhists or Muslims? No.. People who fight against misconduct of catholic priests are Catholics/Christians who have faith in their religion..

      David,

      Your BBS made a stop to eat beef and very soon it will spread to chicken, lamb and fish also.

      Very soon BBS will force feed the Sinhala Buddhist Lay people who are real mutts with Punnakku, Grass and Polkudu while saying Sadu…Saduuu…sssaaddduuuu.

      Already 70% of Sinhala Buddhist village Mutts are Undernourished, sick and weak.

      When they start eating BBS Punnakku, they will be more sick and skeletal. Look at their off sorings.

      By the way did you see how Mahinda Mama and Parliament Bulls and BBS stud bulls PREGNANT LOOKING STOMACHS……….WHAT DO THEY EAT TO BE PREGNANT LOOKING WHILE CITIZENS LOOK LIKE SKELETONS.

      Who is deceiving whom. Yes keep raising The next generation of Sinhala Buddhist cows while feeding them grass.

      Keep on saying Sadu….sssaaaduuuu….ssssaaaadddduuuuuuu.

        jayantha,
        You idiot do not know that even great Kali who is 7 ft 1 tall and 347 lbs heavy is a vegetarian. That shows one doesn’t have to eat rotten meat to remain big made and strong. And Mohandas Gandi, Leonardo da Vinci and present day Director general of IMF, Christine Lagarde are known vegetarians. Need I say they are all extremely intelligent people.

        Idiots like Jayantha think Yahweh had created everything for the benefit of the man. Stupid like him thinks Yahweh created animals and gave life to them to keep meat afresh until Adam and his descendants partake them. It is amazing why the creator so benign to man allow animals that man eats to rot when they were killed. Stupid theists do not understand that man is a superior animal who do not have to act like lowerly animals.

    I know that NGOs like NPC are always reluctant to go to police or to file legal action agaist perpetrators.They know that Mara will never implement LLRC recommendations. Mara totally relies on Sinhala majority votes that he would possess it at least for another two decades as he won the war with Tamils.So NGOs(NGOS means Workshops but nothing else)like NPC and its directors board look for opportunities for survival and comfort life of the so called leaders. In a most serious incident that was taking place in 2008 in which the staff faced a dangeorous situation and attempt of murder by a joint operation by JHU,JVP and SLFP memebrs in Polonnaruwa,the leaders of NPC were shevering and avoided taking any action against those political party thugs for their survival.They just kept quiet and put the blame on the staff who organised the workshop on behalf of the organisation.So staff of NGOs must take care of themselves without relying on their so called leaders.

    A state of anarchy prevails.

    – Politicians taking the law into their own hands.
    – Monks taking the law into their own hands.
    – The rule of the mobs.
    – The rule of thugs and criminals.

    The law of the land is held in default

    – Police do not take action.
    – Justice is delayed.
    – Either accused are held without trial or criminals are released on bail.
    – Wittnesses and evidence is tampered with.
    – Attorney General drops cases saying no evidence.
    – CJ is impeached for not following the wishes of the executive.

    Law is applied to the General Public

    – Child is remanded for steaaling coconuts.
    – Custodial killings of drug dealers.
    – Torture of minor criminals.
    – Harrasment of private drivers for minor traffic offences.

    Law applied to Privileged Class – Politicians, Monks etc

    – Traffic rules do not apply.
    – No prosecution by police.
    – Bail for serious crimes.
    – Fall sick in jail and admit to five star hospital.
    – Case drags on for years.
    – Case dropped by AG citing lack of evidence.

    These are the new breed of Sinhala Buddhist Talibans who’s aim is to Introduce their own Buddhist Sahria Law in the country.

    These are nothing but another form of Terrorists instigated and supported by the Rajapakse Regime to use them as a third force, similar to Saddham Husains Kud’s force.

      A Muslim Turk military general named Qutb-ud-din Aybak or Bakhtiyar Khilji had burned down the ancient Nalanda University with its voluminous books massacring all its students in the twelfth century. I have seen the ruins with my own eyes. Historians recorded that it is during Bakhtiyar Khilji’s reign, Islam achieved most number of converts in India.

      In early 1990,a so-called Bangladeshi poet and a scholar named Al Mahmud had composed a book of poetry to praise that criminal who had killed Buddhist monks and ransacked and burned the ancient Nalanda University for it is he who conquest Bengal and made Bangladesh a Muslim country. Do you want us to be willing victims of Muslims?

      That is how Muslims celebrate their past gory.

        You should learn the true history unless reading the fake. Bangladesh was separated from Pakistan in 1972. Bangladesh was not a Buddhist country.
        The World Biggest and Oldest library was in Alexandria in Egypt was burn by non-Muslims where all the history of world has been lost. There were many Muslim mathematicians in the world before and the total history was vanished out. Spain was a 100% Muslim country and Muslims ruled Spain for 800 Years.

        This is all call HUMAN STUPIDITY…
        Buddhism is dying Philosophy in the world….Like Communism, Jainism, Nazism,….and the Democracy also not successful in the world.

      Des,

      How can they save Buddhists and Buddhism when 80% of Buddhist Monks Leave their robes and find Jobs as laymen as soon as they Graduate from university. This was told by S.B.Disanayake the Minister of Higher education.

      Therefore Only more uneducated, less academics and a few qualified are left in the sasana to preach Buddhism. This is the state of Buddhism in Sri Lanka today.

      Blaming other religions for their own failures won’t help them, when they themselves are the cause of the problem.

      Stop eating Meat or stop Halal logo won’t promote Buddhism or increase Buddhist population in Sri Lanka. Jihadi theory is not practicle but self distructive.

      How could you recruit seven year old children as samaneras when they don’t know even a damn of Buddhism and human Life itself. 90% of those children are economic benefictors. They leave when they grow.

      Remember Prince Siddhartha changed his life only after his wife gave birth to two children and after leaving his prince hood,palace,throne and the Harem. He was not a poor harper but a prince.

      Who are these little children to be future samaneras not knowing anything about religion and the world. These are similar to Muslim Madrasas run by some Jihadi fanatics who brainwash the little ones.

      BBS is not saving Buddhists or Buddhism. They simply destroy it.

      BBS is the beggining of the end of Sri Lanka Buddhism and soon they will be branded as another terrorist organization similar to Taliban, Al queda and Al Nusra front who do not preach Islam but do Jihadi suicide terrorism work in the world and BBS follow them.

        mahela,
        If BBS is destroying Buddhism, you and all other anti Buddhists should be happy about it. If seven year old children as samaneras leave their robes when they grow you anti Buddhists should be happy about it also. Don’t shed crocodile tears man. Don’t worry about Monks leave their robes to take up jobs etc for we shall soon adopt Thai system where every Buddhist becomes a monk sometime in life. Problem solved.

        Think about what Muslims are doing to you Christians in Egypt. AINA reported “Six Copts were injured in a Minya village after clashes with pro-Mursi demonstrators on Thursday evening.” It also reported that in Delga Village south of Minya, the houses of several Copts and village churches were attacked by stones during a pro-Mursi march Thursday night.

    Today in Sl, there are no any norms for monk^s behaviours.

    Having seen a video in which Ganasara loudly shout at Badulla MP or Minister Dilan Perera, I felt OMG – why the all other buddhists monks allow him to use that kind of low sinhala language even expressing his angers.

    ” he went on saying ow yako… api enawa yako..like that”. If this came from Mervin or any other low level politician, people would say it is because of their background. But a buddhist monk is taught to behave at Piriwenas for such a long time. These monks are offered meals by lay people, their believers. Today Ganasara destroys all the image of buddhist monks. If there are any disciplinary action committees, this particular monks should promptly be warned. His criminal energies are becoming clear to almost every sane one, but nothing seem to move towards bringing this subhuman monk behind the bars is not comprehensible.
