“Don’t Do Business Here” – Buddhist Monk Who Perpetrated Anti-Muslim Violence Threatens Muslim Trader

Colombo Telegraph is in possession of video evidence to the effect that a Buddhist monk has demanded that a Muslim trader pack up and leave a local fair.

The monk is heard to say that Sinhala traders are not allowed to do business in Welimada where the majority of traders are Muslims and therefore Muslims would not be welcome at this fair either. ‘Leave right now or else we will throw you out.’

This is the same Buddhist monk of whom there is another video clip full of anti-Muslim rhetoric that is clearly racial in character. ‘Whether Pujitha (IGP Pujith Jayasundara) comes or his mother comes, these monks will not be stopped,’ he said. While traveling to Digana he urged people to sharpen their swords and come forward the day anti-muslim attacks start.

      “Arrest this mad fucker right now!”

      You are mad again.
      Nope. He is an authentic Sinhala/Buddhist defender of this island you cannot and should not touch him. The South will rise up lead by the liberator of this island.

      “Or someone remove his robe and beat the shit out of him until he remembers the pain!”

      What if he ask more? Some enjoy Sadomasochism.
      It is up to the Maha Sanghas to disrobe the thugs. In times of conflicts and turmoil they maintain a dignified silence, clever dicks.

      This is how the thugs took control of Trincomalee market in the 1960s from local people. Have you noticed a pattern of behaviour of those defenders of Sinhala/Buddhism? Find out who is behind these saffron clad thugs, the great grand children of Aryan Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala. Why cannot the Maha Sangha impose 24 hour X 1 year curfew on these thugs?

      Don’t blame the Muslims if you happened to hear the activities of ISIS in this island.

        The evidence is staring us in the face. This is the most blatant example of hate speech we have and the authorities – our leaders, and the forces of law and order – are impotent unable to take any action. Because they are running scared of anything in saffron robes. So much for our 2500 year-old civilisation.

        Ben,

        What is startling is that there were many ordinary people standing around and said nothing! This is the crux of the issue. I as a young boy in Jaffna, stood up against the caste discrimination. We as boys challenged that abhorrent ideology; are the Sinhala prepared to stand up? I do not see any evidence….

      Fake Buddhism is what exists in Lanka today because fake religion is a political business opportunity and money spinner for the likes of Pathala Champika and Gotabaya and Ranil and Sira. . Look at the Mahanayakas in their Mercedes Benz and Audis and the politicians lining up to oil them!
      . This safron thug is the tip of the ice berg. Pathala Champika , Chinas Sri lanka emperor in waiting is the great protector of the racist monks and BBS as is Goon Gota.
      Look at the circus at Independance Sq where another racist saffron thug was burned after 6 days while the Presidential clown and his politicians watched – a friggin soap opera. Monks should be burned at the Crematoriam – like any one else.

      The Buddha taught that flesh purtifies and carcasses should not be kept for days for maggots. Political Buddhism is an insult

        This is NOT a Buddhist monk. This is an impostor, a scoundrel in saffron, a charlatan full of hate. Our laws were designed to punish people like him so that they spend time in jail reflecting on the error of their ways.

        But this evil man will carry on because in our Miracle of Asia, the politicians, the forces of law and order, the Mahanayake’s and most everybody are running scared of the ‘men in saffron’.

        Tomorrow morning this nasty peice of work will get on a bus and the weak and infirm will get up and give their seat to him.

          Relax man; be constructive in your thought, don’t build stress in you for others faults.
          Whether he is a monk or not is a different matter, lets call him an imperfect monk.

          So don’t be an imperfect man because of others imperfection.

          If you feel he deserves jail take the matter to courts without wasting time.

          I think there’re examples in our country for jailing monks so don’t think that whole society is imperfect.

          If the whole society is imperfect just think about your contribution for it.

    The real truth in monks and Buddism in Sri Lanka is not a single descent family will ordain their son a Samanera and these guys are ordained simple due to economic difficulties as their parents cannot afford to feed them.

    What can you expect from someone robbed because of no food to eat and no shelter ?

    This is the real truth and no use of blaming minorities and it will be a shame to call a Sinhala Buddhist now.

        The problem today is still sangha are required for some social rituals so their presence is sought at any expense.

        With that knowledge, monks are not strict in their behavior & show interest in social matters that must be away from their access.

        Though in the past, during colonial time Sangha were required to advise people because majority people hadn’t been educated but things have changed now.

        So there must be strong message to monks that their failure to adhere to discipline will lead to non-tolerance from society & have to face consequences.

      Buddha Perera,

      The first thing is to remove the protection for Buddhism in the constitution. It is this clause that emboldens these animals.

    Looks the scumbags were all out in full force the past couple of days. It is so reprehensible that these arrogant pups in saffron robes, have behaved this way, and the fact that NO ONE is able to stop the harassment, and threats, encouraging the brainless to bring out swords. What kind of civilization is this? Saffron robed punks leading the mobs, inciting them, and whose words belong in a gutter.
    He has some arrogance to say that they gave the Muslims everything including shops.
    Muslims have shops because they are hardworking, unlike these jobless hate mongers, who seem to have time to go around, attacking, burning, looting, and even killing innocent people. It seems this punk cannot stand the thought of Muslims working, and they even picked on a helpless vendor on the road. These punks are an embarrassment to the country, and those encouraging this gutter behavior should be ashamed of themselves, and that they are using ignorant punks for their hate campaign.
    Arrest these goons and disrobe them. They are bringing shame to Buddhism.

      Siyarata,

      Muslims have undoubtedly attained Sainthood. No questions on that. Where ever they go there is peace and tranquility engulfing the area like sea breeze. They go to Europe everyone there embrace them and cuddle them for the peaceful saints they are. They invade Myanmar with peace, that Monks there told them to kindly buzz off.

      In the US, pretty much every major city has come under their peaceful attacks. In Edmonton, Canada, a Muslim peacefully tried something strange in a public swimming pool.

      Only the vile Chinese who banned Muslim names for newborns and Sinhalese have got it wrong. Google and see names like Mohammad, Akmed and other Moslem names are banned in China. Why is it that only these two do not see the Moslems as peaceful.

    Most of the monks in saffron garb have this mentality, only a decent handful are real honourable ‘Buddhist’ monks.With men in saffron robes and those in uniforms collude you have a toxic cocktail that will bring about another Burma in SL.

    What is the proof that he is a Buddhist monk? What is the name and which temple is this monk from? Verify that first. Anybody can wear a Sivura and that doesn’t mean he is a monk. First verify the identity of this person. If he is really a Buddhist monk, the relevant Nikaya should warn the Thero severely and if this type of behaviour continues., the Thero should be expelled. This is not patriotism.

Further all the murderers and rogues will be protected as the President took orders from Mahinda Rajapakse when they met at mid night. If the new Minister of Law and Order is a straight forward person he should tender his resignation immediately as most of the voters do not like him being appointed.

      Yes Sinhalese ethnically cleansing Muslims in the south and Sinhalese and Muslims ethnically cleansing the Tamils in the NE , who are the real owners of these two provinces. Even at the height of anti Muslim violence in the Kandy area , Muslim mobs were attacking Tamils in the east and trying to grab their lands. What an irony , as they have now ceased power in the east with the help of the Sinhalese settlers. In the rest of the country the Sinhalese persecute the Muslims but in the Tamil areas , Sinhalese settlers police armed forces and establishment join with the Muslims to persecute Tamils. Descendants of a people who arrived as refugees fleeing persecution and now persecuting and trying to steal the land of descendants of the people who took pity on them and gave them refuge in the first place. This proves these Muslims will never learn and are always opportunists. They will always deny their actual Tamil heritage and ethnicity and in the name of their religion , worship and ape to be like Arabs and claim an Arab heritage that they hardly have.

RW and My has falied infront of people already and only god knnows no name guy many people didn’t even know that existed until today was made the minister of most daring job at the moment. The day that rest of the people who voted for this gov are coming to streets against this gov won’t be that long.I have never seen such incapable non-leadership in SL, even Wijetunga was stronger compared to what we see now. We proabably won’t vote in 2020 or hope that JVP would man it up by then. Because as progressive people of the country we are faced with no options as both major parties are corrupt as hell and two side of the same coin. We knew that but this much of servility towards the old crooks are so disgusting.

    Dr. Mahatir Mohamed is the greatest leader that this world ever saw (opinion). We know how (western) speculators detroyed the Malaysian $ in the mid 1990s. But, Dr. Mohamed was able to see what was coming and because (todate) he is ‘clean’ he was able to recover and today Malaysia is one of the greatest nations on the planet!

    During this period Dr. Mohamed had to face another problem – that was racism by the Malays (the Sinhalese of Mayaysia) and other parties like the Muslims, Tamils, etc. (subversive elements). The Chinese were the target. Dr. Mohamed passed two laws:

    1. If ANYBODY is overhead of using any RACIAL SLUR they could be arrested ON THE SPOT.
    2. Foreign businesses were banned from doing business in Malaysia WITHOUT a Malaysian partner.

    {Singapore also has similar laws- especially on racism}

    Today Malaysia has proved to be right, no matter how foreign ‘influences’ try and tried to destroy Malaysia – Malaysia survived!

    So, it begs the question, Why didn’t the Rajapakse government AND why doesn’t the Sirisena government pass such laws (especially since we seem to copy every other thing the world does – mostly promiscurity among the women???)

    I look forward to this law. Every one should be called Sri Lankan FIRST. Nobody should be allowed to use their religion or ethinic identity alone:

    E.g.:

    Sinhalese -> Sri Lankan Sinhalese
    Muslim -> Sri Lankan Muslim
    Tamil -> Sri Lankan Tamil
    Catholic -> Sri Lankan Catholic

    Nobody should be allowed to do business with a religious sign/symbol – wear religious symbols, etc in a place of business.

    Sinhalese (may) deserve more autonomy, just like the Malays do, but it must not be allowed to be used for intimidation of ANYBODY currently living on the soil of Sri Lanka – even tourists!

    Religious ‘leader’ MUST BE BANNED from instigating violence and the same law must be applied to ALL.

    THREE WHEELERS AND PRIVATE BUSSES MUST BE REGULATED (Three-wheel buddhism must be banned!)

      Why should Sinhalese have more autonomy the NE of the island was always Tamil not Sinhalese . This means Tamils should have more autonomy here and the Sinhalese in the southern 7 provinces. However we Tamils are not silly demanding extra favours for us. May the most industrious win. Tamils can compete not demand more rights on the basis of being indigenous to the land

    The truth is emerging. The Lankan Muslim crisis is purely business interests take over of Muslim businesses.
    The business interests are in the MR camp and in MS/RW camp. They control the Armed Services and Police.
    The same thing is happening in Myanmar.

    Wow, this vendor guy is making multi million rupees off of Sinhalese people and the thugs are jealous of him. Wait for the day when corporate will take over entire pola. Is Cargills/Arpico not in Welimada yet?. Anyone who point to a poor should be ashamed, regardless of religion or ethnicity. Oh Mother Lanka!

    Ah boy

    Don’t hurry to blame this monk though there’s st wrong in him.

    Kindness must emanate on situations like this.

    Don’t make it a chance to defame whole Sinhala population, simply he could say I don’t agree hamuduro but if you don’t like me here let me leave.

    & later take steps to find justice in decent way.

    However hamuduruvo had given a reason that some Muslims also chase Sinhala traders from one place.
