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.

    This alone is enough to have them arrested…I heard the prison term for this in 20 years or life. Will it apply to them as well?

      Dear Kodithuwakku

      You know we have biased police and a kangaroo justice system.

      They never arrested and prosecuted any from aluthgama incident, gintota, ampara. Do you really think this will ever happen ?

      A Culture of Impunity for Hate crimes and Financial Crimes and the Mahinda Rajapaksa criminal family has been put in place by Ranil Wickramasinghe and his boys in the past 3 years of a-yahapalanaya.

      RW the Minister of law and order is Pujith IGP is his boy, just like Arjuna Mahendran.
      Because of the massive corruption and failure of Law and order process in the past 3 years people have not faith in the system and taking law into own hands.
      Ranil Bond hora must get out!

      I think colombo telegraph shouldn’t become channel 4, This is clearly an old video…. We are blaming facebook for spreading propaganda videos and news and here CT does the same.
      And I think muslims shouldn’t hand him over to police, Sinhalese should. But muslims have some people who should hand over to police too. Those Quatar funded extreamist organizations in Maligawatte. If both Muslims and Sinhalese can control their own racists, On that day Sri Lanka will become prosperous. Otherwise we will be just pointing fingers at each other and fight.

      He is too busy being a good Sinhala/Buddhist. What made you think he is responsible for internal law and order issues?

      The IGP is being employed to manage events for the benefit of crooks, crooked politicians, crooked state functionaries, crooked saffron clad thugs, and crooked policemen because he benefited from crooks in the past, otherwise he could not have reached where he is now.

        Muslims made a big mistake they supported with the govt and Sinhalese when the attack was against Tamils. Now they are paying the price.

        Its not late to learn from your mistakes. Muslims don’t have an issue of defending their land as they are scattered all over the country and the government too cannot carpet bomb like they din the north. Only thing Muslims have to think of is to defend themselves. There are enough men Sri Lanka trained as home guards and without crying for help from politicians they should look at their neighbor and ask for help from MULTA.

        BS: Age of the tape does not matter. Arrest all those that could be identified, charge them and throw them in jail.

        Remember these is the same country that arrested JS Tissainayagam, kept him in jail for six months without bail, tortured him then charged him under the kangaroo court and sentenced him for 20 years RI.

        All this was for writing two articles in a magazine no one reads and that too not inciting violence.

    Colombo Telegraph, please verify your news before posting, otherwise you end up ruining your own reputation and looking like fools.

    This is an old video from a year or two ago. This happened when these terrorists tried to go to Batticaloa to start some trouble, that’s why Amith is talking about not being able to get bail since no Sinhalese there…

    We have 100s of video evidence similar to this, most are publicly accessible on youtube
    ! but most Sinhalese brothers don’t know, and it’s pointless because even after handing over to police no action is taken.

    How can people like Gnanasara, Amith, Dan Prasad, Saliya, etc. all remain free when there is insurmountable evidence that they are inciting racism in the country!!! Believe me, we Muslims have more than enough video evidence of their activities and all their bloody lies. We even have several videos of monks completely lying about Ampara wanda pethi incident and inciting hatred but we don’t even bother to go to the police anymore because it’s just a waste of time…

    If CT is so keen on revealing these truths then why not bring this up when it happened? If you want i can provide 100s of links, all on youtube, to many similar videos.

        Certainly it would not happen as their is no congruence in their aims. Muslims ‘generally’ are driven by religious ideology and expansionism through numbers, whereas Tamils want their political rights secured.

        I still think Tamils should go it alone. Muslims were with the abuser when Tamils really needed help.
        Joining Muslims will label the issue as “Islamic” and the is a very bitter pill in most developed nations.

    A message from Korea. I’m Korean and I was about to introduce my products to Sri Lanka market.
    However, for now, my muslim friend and his beloved family are in danger. Also my business has been stopped because of the violence.
    Last month, I and my muslim friend were talking about our future abundance but now he is worrying whether he and his family is safe or not.
    I do hope that the religious leaders in Sri Lanka lead the people to the right way – love and peace.

    When we have a proven strong person who can handle such issues is available President does not want to appoint him (Sarath Fonseka). That is because Mahinda Rajapakse and the President at the midnight meeting agreed not to do so and this view was supported by the leading business person. Why is the President so weak?

    I think no problem at all it is an old video or new one. Issues is if it is an old video whether the action has been taken over this instigation and piloting of riots. If action would have been taken taken and arrested them, we would not faced the presence situation.

    This one year old video and this post is a testament to the intelligence (or the lack of it) of many of the uneducated fools of this forum.

    Anyone with an ounce of intelligence will know Gnanassara thero’s stance on this new violence. He has categorically asked everyone to remain calm. Given that fools have very low comprehension skills his message doesn’t appear to be clear to them.
    He only sympathizes with the Sinhalese youth who lost his life.

    for the past 5 years Racial hatred towards muslims is an ongoing problem in Sri Lanka. Which was initiated by Bodu Bal Sena ( Buddhist Extremist group monks) backed by former regime. Muslims have been living peacefully with other communities for decades, as law abiding citizens . As every body know that the culprits go behind the bars for few days and are released because they are backed by politicians and monks. This is due to law enforcement favouring the majority Buddhist of the country. There is no end to this problem until proper action is taken against this Extremist Buddhist groups..

    In srilanka,in the case that racism again been initiated by these people along with some groups of mobs.For what reason,still it is crystal clear sinhala is the majority and Srilanka
    is a Buddhist country,and as muslims we do not need to proliferate intentionally.In addition with that there has been numerous rumors about this topic as well.If sinhalese people have problems with Muslim people,there is process of solving them.Vandalizing all homes and Mosques is not the remedy for that.It is totally fake that muslims are conspiring against sinhalese in srilanka.Therefore we need harmony not racism.Above all,we all are humans.Being born as humans why we need casts and creeds.I cordially invite all Buddhist,Sinhalese people,please do not bamboozle to these fake people and pitch in to defend the nations’s harmony.

    The title is misleading. If you watch this video carefully you can see that Amith Weerasinghe asked people not to attack. At least we must admit that he tried to calm people by saying the legal background. If you want to blame even this, you are the ones who are racist.
