Buddhist Monk Spreads Anti-Muslim Venom Amid Social Media Ban

Even though the Sri Lankan government has banned social media, Islamophobes are still spreading anti-Muslim venom on various social media platforms, Colombo Telegraph observed.

For instance a Buddhist monk called Budhdha Rakkhitha has yesterday uploaded the following video clip on his Facebook page and threatened Muslims again. The racist video clip, full of anti-Muslim rhetoric, is currently going viral in certain social media circles.

On 7th March, the Government has moved to clamp down on social media, presumably as a measure to curb rumor-mongering following the inter-communal clashes in the Kandy District.

President Maithripala Sirisena has directed the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission to enforce this block for three days.

Accordingly, Facebook access has been withdrawn while group chats in Whatsapp have been blocked. Video and audio messages cannot be sent on Whatsapp.

Meanwhile a 14-day detention order on the 10 suspects arrested on charges of inciting violence in Kandy, had been issued using emergency regulations that are in place at present.

The detention order was issued by the DIG of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID). The suspects were brought to Colombo for questioning, Police Spokesman SP Ruwan Gunasekera told media. The curfew would be re-imposed in the Kandy District except in the Kandy Municipality areas from 8 p.m today till 5 a.m. tomorrow. So far no monk has been arrested, Colombo Telegraph learns.

    CT, would you please stop the F— using the term “Monk” when referring to these robed retards. The term that should be used is “Robed Person” or “Robed Criminal” or something like that. In Sinhala it would be “Cheewaradhaariya”. I mean just look at this monster in this video.

      Thanos . If there is a legal loophole in the law or tax loophole for exploitation the loophole is fixed by making amendments.

      – if thugs are exploiting the loophole in the constitution , that they can adorn the robe and commit a crime knowing very well that they cant be touche, then fix that loophole in the constitution.

      and you know what that loophole is !

          That clause MUST be dropped but if they want to keep the so called “foremost place ” then they have to literally codify the “Vinaya Pitaka” in law (this excludes civilians). Under such a law civilians will have full free-speech and liberty but not monks. Under such a situation the monster in this video could be immediately arrested under a “Insulting Buddhism” clause. Again civilians can say what they want but NOT monks! But current “Para-Sinhala Buddhists” are not doing either. You either have to have a proper secular republic or bring the order of monks under very strict criminal law. Things such marriage, business, owning and driving vehicles, etc, etc would be illegal for monks under such a situtation. But if they don’t want do that then should immediately throw out that useless “foremost place” clause.

      When Prabakaran was alive and was fighting against the SL Gov from 1983 to 2009, we haven’t seen any of these Weerayas outside, all these Gnayo’s hibernated for 26 years.. Now Mr. Prabakaran (?##@) was killed and pigs are awake. They quickly realized they could be easily become heroes again among SB cowards and here we go with all the problems repeating again… Now we SBs are hibernating and pretend we SBs don’t see or hear any… We need to understand Thinking & Writing is NOT the same as the “ACTIONS”…. We need to get out of our houses and protest non-violently against these foolish Ganayos and SBs
      Or we need another big Tiger and/or Camal to save this country from killing each other…

      Thanos, there are too many such persons in robes, so where do we start. Shall we brand them all as ‘Robed Criminals’ as you suggest or do we as a society change the way we perceive the roles of Buddhist monks, for it is the society that is guilty of allowing such large numbers of them in robes spreading hatred. The society and the tax payers provide them with all the luxuries, luxury vehicles, free travel, free clothing, free meals, free residence and free everything else in exchange for virtually nothing, except bleating hate speeches towards others and committing violence. These are supposed to be followers of the teachings of the sage Lord Buddha, who renounced all material things that the world offered, he even begged for his meals. Would any of these monks do that? Except a handful most them are well fed and well built than the average working class man in the country. The politicians are mainly at fault for allowing monks to shape and/or interfere in politics and in turn they assume that it is their right to say and do things to suit their own agenda, thus allowing them to rule by proxy and politicians playing a passive secondary role in governance of the country. This must change and all religious persons, regardless of their beliefs, should keep away from political matters and confine themselves to
      providing spiritual guidance alone. Just as the rest, politicians too should go to temples to worship and obtain spiritual guidance from knowledgeable spiritual monks who actually follow the teachings of Buddha. If we can do this, then we will have set out on the path to build an equitable society free from suspicion, fear and hatred towards one another.

      The wrong spellings of the name “Buddha” in English and especially in Sinhala are proof that this person has not been a Monk for a long time.
      He MAY have become a Monk a few hours before publishing the post, by wearing a burgundy (?) colour new fabric.
      Over to you, Police!
      CID arrested two students already for attempting to incite people via social media. Look, there is another one. CT will provide the source. I didn’t watch the video.
      .
      NO MORE VIOLENCE or INCITEMENT TO RACIAL HATRED, people, PLEASE.
      .
      Everybody has a right to life. Nobody has a right to instill fear in another person.
      I have been saying this over and over. Put your feet in other person’s shoes and look at the matter.
      .
      My salute to Buddhist Priests and Sinhalese who provided shelter/protection /consolation to Muslims during the riots.
      I don’t think the people who ignited the riots would even have thought this would go this far. I dare say government has a hand there. UNP excels in vote rigging and communal riots using thugs. I wish to remind all Sinhalese Buddhists, without prejudice, that the majority in the UNP government are non-Buddhists. Therefore, don’t fall for their trap.
      .
      Ranil managed to get the treacherous ICPPED Act passed in the Parliament with having only 53 MPP in the government side. Out of 225 MPP, ONLY 16 had voted against it and I know for sure Wimal was one of them. I missed his speech.
      Forget about FAKE ‘Wanda Peththa’, Sinhalese. That is a big lie. Focus on real issues, for God’s sake.
      I invite Wimal to “break JO/Hotu Pohottuwa chains” and get back to his “true-self” whom the entire country placed immense trust in February 2015 in guiding the people to the right direction.

        The Police should treat the two students arrested and remanded over posting hate speech as “victims” of instigators, not as culprits.
        Police should arrest real culprits who are funded by NGOO, INGOO, politicians or other foreign elements.

      Thanos,

      Who is bowing to these Monks? The Medamulana Nikaya.

      Sirisena, the Sevalaya, the Prerethaya.

      Through the Bulath Vine, Vettila Vine, Grape Vine

      Guess who came out to enter the car with two security personnel ? It was none other than Maithripala Sirisena , the president whose popularity has by now dropped to a most despicable 4 % , but still holds the post of ‘honorable’ president of Sri Lanka . What happened thereafter is even more shocking ! This car with Sirisena went straight and stopped at a house in Flower Road ,Kollupitiya belonging to Dhammika. The other individual in the Kollupitiya house anticipating Sirisena was another faceless , ruthless Machiavellian – ex president Mahinda Rajapakse.

      The secret discussion that took place between the ex president and Sirisena is no secret now to the country. Based on information seeping out , following the recent local government polls , the rift between Gotabaya and Basil has deepened .Sirisena however has used this rift to help Gota realize his dream . Hence, in that context the Sirisena – Mahinda discussion was most decisive.

      Why cannot the Mahasangha impose 1 year curfew on these unruly thugs?

      I know a young monk of Kotte Raja Maha Vihara who was confined within its premises for more than six months during the dark days of the late 1980s. He couldn’t leave the premises because on several occasions white vans attempted to abduct him from the streets.

      IPKF mark II could keep the saffron thugs off the streets as they kept the Sri Lankan armed forces confined to their camps.

      The average IQ of the Paras is 79.

      https://photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html

      The intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist.

      Countries are ranked highest to lowest national IQ score.

    Un-Venerable Budhdha Rakkhitha,

    First of all, you are a Para, a Para-Sinhala, because your ancestors came bu Hora-Oru, Kalla-Thonis, Illegal Boats to the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

    You are not a Buddhist, but a Para-Sinhala “Buddhist”, that follows Mara-ism, as many of you do.

    Please get back to your Native Homeland South India, if you cannot live in peace with the other Paras, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

    Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations

    https://www.nature.com/articles/jhg2013112

    Journal of Human Genetics volume 59, pages 28–36 (2014)
    doi:10.1038/jhg.2013.112

    Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

    Besides, the average IQ of the Paras is 79, and many Paras, especially Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” IQ’s fall well below 79. They prayed to stones, statutes, ,trees, monks , etc, and during the past 70 years, when the IQ 100 Para-British who handed over governance afterwards, , it was all downhill, and the Debt/GDP ration is close to 90%, and expected to go to 100%, courtesy of Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”.

    It’s time the Sanga Saba & Ministry of Buddha Sasana etc. took action against robed thugs appearing as Buddhist monks, spreading violence & hate. Looking at this thug’s unshaven appearance, in my opinion, is not a Buddhist monk, therefore, should be disrobed & exposed for what he is by any temple that may be giving him refuge. His appearance & conduct is an insult to the religion.

    In UK recently, two leaders, one of whom happened to be a female, of a racist organization by the name of ‘Britain First’, were jailed for handing out racist leaflets outside a court where a case against four Muslim men for raping a young girl was being heard. Although the men were convicted for rape, the British Govt. cracks down on vigilantism & even hate speech that is inciting racial hatred is considered a crime. This is the difference between a democratic govt. & an ineffective & useless govt. that promotes racism for survival.

    It is obvious the Laws of our country do not apply to the Buddhist clergy and the politicians. They enjoy blanket immunity. ” You scratch my back and I scratch your back.” That seems to be the Yahapalana slogan for the 2020 Election. Having listened to the JVP Leader’s address in parliament it is quite reasonable for one to come to such a conclusion. ( Lord Buddha must be moving in his grave. )

      I can understand why you want to warn the law abiding citizens. Isn’t it because you cannot warn the Sinhala/Buddhist fascists or you haven’t got the b***s to do it or you don’t want to warn your own kind?

      Therefore warning the Buddhists, Hindu and Christians is the easiest part knowing full well there won’t be any retaliation from these stupid people.

    1. When it was mandatory for all citizens to wear a helmet when riding motorbikes, one ethnic group started riding bikes without helmets
    2. When it was mandatory for all citizens to show their face in public places, one ethnic group began wearing robes that covered even face.
    3. When common quality standards for food was applicable, one ethnic group began a new standard based on their religious belief which all had to comply with
    4. When it was illegal for citizens to cut forests, one ethnic group began raping forests and settling their people
    5. When the law declared a minimum age for marriage, one ethnic group demanded to marry children
    6. When all citizens had to come under one equal law, one ethnic group is demanding a separate Shariah law for them above that of the common law
    7. When marriage/divorce is registered & comes under one common law, another ethnic group wants to marry 4 women and have separate Quazi Courts
    8. When anyone entering a public & state offices has to remove helmets, jackets another group of people demand to wear a robe that covers everything but their eyes making distinction and recognition impossible
    9. When motorists were asked to remove full face helmets citing threats to national security, another ethnic group demanded to cover themselves from head to toe including sitting for public exams and having their NIC photos taken in that manner
    10. When a common banking system prevailed for all citizens, another group of people demanded Shariah Banking

    Our politicians do not open their mouths to talk against these things because they want their votes.

      How about this!
      1 One ethnic community decided to disenfranchise almost a million people of another ethnic community on the flimsy ground that they could not prove that they had been in the island for more than 3 generations, whereas they had arrived 5 generations ago
      2 One community then unilaterally decided that its language alone will be the official language depriving people who were incompetent in that language high and dry!
      3 One community then decided they should beat up the other community from time to time to ‘teach them a lesson’ for seeking equality
      4 When one party of this community decided to agree to provide some equality, another party from the same community always led by the same Buddhist monks would then protest ending any chance of reconciliation.
      5 Unable to compete with the other community on equal terms, this community then introduced schemes to restrict the other community entering the universities and angering its youth.

      7 When the other ethnic community resorted to responding in kind by attacking the army occupying their land, this ethnic community unleashed state terror driving almost a third out of the country and losing some of their best professionals
      8 When the same community unable to beat the other community’s superior strategies despite its small numbers, invited the global powers; committed war crimes and perpetrated genocide on a scale that had shocked the civilized world/
      9 Now the same community is using the same Buddhist clergy to beat another community which had sought to survive by ingratiating themselves with whoever was in power proving has proved neither ‘sucking up’ or ‘ rebellion ‘is the answer to placate this community, but to bring them to their senses by other means, whatever it takes

        Elango,

        1) Sinhalese didn’t bring them to the island. The British did. Why should Sinhalese keep the uprooted people in harsh conditions in Sri Lanka? Wasn’t it better for them to repatriate to their home country where they have brought in?

        2) Before that some totally alien language was the official language and so many people were incompetent in that language too. But no one complained. Why is that? Besides what wrong is to make the language of the 75% of the people, the official one.

        3) Maybe it was the equality that one community who were about 15% of the total population asked for 50% of the representation in the national assembly.

        4) Providing equality should not destabilize the country so that a mythical separate state should be achieved. Besides, reconciliation does not mean only about equality.

        5) When one community thinks only about learning through books and becoming doctors and engineers disregarding every other profession there is. State should impose restrictions to ensure everyone else have equal chance of success in higher education.

        6) There is no land to be occupied. When one community believes that they are rightful owners of some lands in the country despite the over whelming archaeological evidence that they are not, actions must be taken firstly to tame the militants elements of that community and then teach them how delusional they are regarding the history.

        7) If there was a genocide why are there so many people of the so called genocided community living in this country with no threats? What kind of genocide leaves so many people alive?

          My ancestors never invited the Sinhala/Buddhists to this island. Don’t you think it would be much much better for them to leave on a voluntary repatriation scheme.

              “You have no ancestors.”

              True as the saying goes “Kill the veddah, rob the Buddha and blame the sudda”.

              “Or else I can give some to you. Cheers.”

              No thanks I am happily married and have a partner. She takes care of my every need.

          Who brought the Sinhalese to Srilanka. Was it Vijaya and his 700 non descriptive followers? Did you have a language of your own? Did you conquer Srilanka then called Eelam.
          You were accommodated here as you had no place to go. You were refugees. You did not have enough women to get married? or the women here reused to get married and you brought women from South India. Your language is a mixed language, Pali, Sanskrit, Tamil and later English . Muslims when they came here they had a rich language -Tamil,. Whether they are in the North, East, West or south they continue to speak Tamil. They did note merge with the Sinhalese and get lost. There are fanatics every where – whether it is the so called developed west or undeveloped African countries. I hope the Buddha will forgive you for your attitude in life. Amen.

            K. Anga,

            Do you believe in Mahavamsa? If you do then god bless you.

            P.S – Generally when a language is isolated from it’s mother language, it begins evolved into a something entirely different from it’s original source. This is the basis of the Modern Linguistics. But can you explain to me why didn’t Tamil evolve into a something different in Sri Lanka as you say for the 1000s of years? According to your logic modern linguistics must be radically changed with the light of Tamil language in Sri Lanka.

      Eagle Eye, good points and you answered our dilemma at the end.

      CHANGE our spineless politicians – They are the ones who are supposed to set the laws for ALL of us and make sure they are applied fairly. Instead the present lot of politicians spend their time in office on planning how to rob the common man.

    sorry to see so many vicious comments here. it is important to understand the psyche of majority Sinhalese with the recent developments… the issue is Rishad Badhurdeen….when he openly started destroying the Wilpatthu jungle against the public outcry especially from the Sinhalese demanding him not to destroy pristine jungle for colonization …he did not take any notice and virtually challenged the authority including the judiciary….remember how stones were thrown to the courts in puttlam…and followed by SATHOSA container with drugs caught in Mount Lavinia…that was apparently had some connection to his brother… .nothing happened to any of these dictatorial acts of Rishad Badurdeen.
    Things were brewing from that time and this is the end result of what was created by Rishad Badurdeen.

      Please remove this BUDDA TERRORIST photo……We scared seeing this face..

      We challege IGP and new minister if they are true Budhist and have guts , arrest these kavvi terrorist s including Galagodaya and sumanaya in batticalo.. The world has certified Budda Terror is emerged showing its deadly venom .
      Because of this, Aung San Suu Kyi – a woman budda terrorist from Myanmar , has been stripped of a prestigious award by the US Holocaust Memorial Museum over her failure to spea k out against ethnic cleansing and genocide committed against a Muslim minority in her country.
      If around 100 Budda Kaavi Terrorists with their Leaders like Gnanasara Galagodaya and Champikaya , are sent to jail for life , then we can have a peaceful society..

    He finally stopped his sermon blessing everyone with the power of the triple gem.

    The fundamental issue in this country is that people who are not deserve at all to hold some positions occupy such positions destroying the whole nation. For instance, Criminals occupying public office in the Legislature and Executive destroy the democracy, whilst keeping the Judiciary under their firm grip.

    Buddhist philosophy too faces the same fate and not an exception. Most robe bearers who know nothing about the philosophy taught by Samma Sambudda, practice completely the opposite of Dhamma, bringing it into disrepute.

    The official statistics provides over 70 of the people in Sri Lanka are belong to Buddhist ‘religion’ whereas probably not even 0.1% of them truly practice, what Samma Buddha taught to the mankind. This applies to Buddhist monks as well.

    What Buddha taught is truly a philosophy to be learned and practiced to achieve freedom from all forms of suffering and not at all, as most people conceive, a religion that promotes satisfaction of sensual desires with assured eternal happiness in the heaven after death, regardless of the sinful life one may practice in this life. Due to sheer ignorance most people don’t realize that it is a philosophy that profess every action backed by sanctions.

    It is pure natural law that encourages people to cultivate a noble character that respect morality, insight and righteousness. This philosophy always stands for promoting good deeds that brings pleasing sense of happiness that profess the mankind one simple truth; that the engaging in any form of bad deeds would inevitably bring bad, painful results.

      You realize that it was these disgraceful scumbags, pretending to be Buddhists, that went on a rampage and burnt and destroyed property belonging to helpless Muslim, who had nothing to do with anything.
      As for those stupid claims of tablets used by the Muslim restaurant, to “sterilize” Buddhists, the government analyst has said it was just flour. So all those “peaceful” Buddhists, who looted, attacked, destroyed, and terrorized the Muslims WERE FOR NOTHING. They were led by these goons in saffron robes. Shame on them, and shame on you for supporting thugs.

    anyway good CT, if this thugs can be arrested by CID. Any one can put a robe and act like this. right now, ISIS killing the Sinhala buddhist Driver in Mahanuwara area, Various Economic legislation passed by Ranil beczause MCC, IMF, world bank wants it, RAvi Borunayake is arrested. Ranil stepped down as a the instigator of a Robber. Both the RANIL and Maithripala sirisena should be histroy if this way they run the country. Anyway, the media behaviouir pzarticularly CT behaviour is pathetic. christian bashing buddhists.

    Sri lankans of all backgrounds are good people, be it rich, middle class or poor.
    They are people who will come out to help anyone and everyone in any calamity.
    They are humble, nice people other than a few who are not because of politicians.
    They are people with natural goodness and politeness in them unlike westerners or white skins who are programmed with artificial goodness and politeness from birth to death. People who will peep from behind the curtains of their windows if your house is on fire but who will not come out to help douse the flames.

    What Sri lanka needs are good, educated politicians not bloody amudey wearers, poofters, girly boys, or arseholes who will show the population how to become better people.
    The good sri lankans need to rally round together leaving religion and caste aside to kick out the political arseholes and bring in good people. This is a uphill task but if done with pure motivation it will not fail.
    There are a lot of good people in SL who are sitting around doing nothing giving evil a chance to triumph.

    1. Bring in a good & strong leader not a poofter or a jellyfish.
    2. Bring in a strong Police chief not a stage singer or mantra reciter.
    3. A strong and fearless army commander not a rank riser every bloody two years.
    4. A good justice minister not some dick head who does not know law.
    5 A honest finance minister not a bloody f—–g baboon.
    6. A polished foreign minister not a yakko.
    7 A educated power & energy minister not a arsehole who does know the + and – terminals of a battery.
    8. A qualified health minister not a f—–g arsehole of a dentist who does not know how many teeth he has.
    9. A good minister of transport not a bloody three wheel driver.
    10. And a few good others who will turn SL into a peaceful and prosperous country.

    Another video tape, by an idiot in saffron robes, spewing bullcrap, and talking as if the country is only for the Sinhala Buddhist. It is time these haters were educated, and learnt that Muslims and Tamils were there years before, and that they were entitled to live in this country too.

    This trouble maker in saffron robes, look half drunk too.

    Too bad, I don’t think this asshole knows basic Buddhism.

    Just because he is wearing a robe doesn’t make him a monk, rather I would equate him to a monkey.
    Monkey hear, monkey do.

    The damage done to Buddhism by such uncouth characters is inexplicable, inexcusable and irreparable.

    How can he consider minorities as sub-citizens?

    We should not forget that it was the Buddha who first taught the world about humanity and human rights. According to the Buddha everyone is equal irrespective of cast, creed, etc, etc. It is ones actions that makes a person worthy or otherwise.

    It was the Buddha that taught the world that hatred does not cease with hatred but rather with love.
    It was the Buddha that taught us how to be Humble, Kind, Compassionate, Patient, Forgiving, and to renounce greed, anger, hatred, not to judge, etc. These are just some of the very basic things Buddha taught.

    Now does this asshole even remotely resonate an iota of the Dharma in his speech, what a shame!. He is a devil if you ask me, we should learn to identify such elements using Buddhism 101 and banish them from calling themselves Buddhist. They are riding on Buddhism to disguise their aims and and achieve all sorts of deranged objectives.

    We should not be fooled by such bloodthirsty scoundrels and if possible shun them on sight.

    There should be only one law in this country for all citizens.
    No exceptions.
    e.g. Thesavalami for Jaffna Tamils
    Kandyan Law for up country Sinhalese
    Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA)

    Then noise pollution
    a) No Buddhist Chanting over loud speaker on a daily/weekend basis.
    Special Festivals allowed

    b)No Hindu music at 5 am in the morning.
    Was in Kilinochi a few days ago. Music Blaring at 5 am

    c) No Christian (Catholic ) Loudspeakers
    In Negombo the Kadolkelle Church
    (the loud speakers are located at 4 stories high)
    blasts songs (hora songs) at 5 am in the morning.

    d) Then Islamists. 5 times a day
    Loud speakers payed by Saudi and ME money

    Its time to say your religious belief is your own, in the mosque, temple or church.
    Just because you have the biggest noise in town does not mean that town is religious.

    Case in Point: The Muslims in Digana who killed the Sinhala guy were Drunk.

    To re-iterate: First two steps
    a) No loud speakers by any religion
    b) One law for the whole country, no exceptions for Kandyan, Tamils or Muslims.

      ” Has this idiot been taken into custody? “

      What for?
      He is a protector of Sinhala/Buddhism, front line brave soldier of Sinhala/Buddhism. When Sinhala/Buddhism is trouble they come out to defend Sinhala/Buddhism and Sinhala/Buddhists.

      Those who claim to be or act like a Sinhala/Buddhist cannot and should not be arrested nor charged.

      How long have you been living in this island? You must be a traitor to the cause.
