Exclusive: Mahason Balakaya Leader Caught On Video Plotting Anti-Muslim Attacks With BBS Gnanasara

Colombo Telegraph is in possession of video evidence of Amith Weerasinghe, leader of the Mahason Balakaya, in conversation with a group including Buddhist monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), regarding carrying out attacks.

Weerasinghe is shown urging the crowd that ‘this is not the time to attack because we are not ready.’ He has argued that the plan of unnamed opponents was to get everyone arrested. He said that in Ampara there weren’t enough Sinhala people to bail out anyone who might get arrested.

Colombo Telegraph cannot confirm the exact date of this conversation.
