On September 20, 2000, the monk was fined Rs. 12,000 by Traffic Courts, Colombo 12. The accident occurred on April 14, the same year, causing injuries to two others named Mohamed Rifai and Ravindra Kumar.  Gnanasara Thera was driving lorry number 6 Shri 5444. Among the charges against him were drunk driving, speeding, driving without a valid licence and failing to report the accident.

The monk pleaded guilty to all 9 charges.

    Drinking is also Haraam in Holy Islam. Mind it Ganasara!

    All this racial and religious fanaticism could have been moderated and avoided had the MR government taken the stance to do so. Instead he has turned a blind eye and now havoc is on the loose.
    Is this s scheme created by the government to divert the populations’ attention from all other economic dysfunctions and crisis’s?
    Is this another distraction for the people so that the focus is taken away from the human rights violations and the rampant disregard for justice in this country?
    Either way, this moronic government, thanks to their brilliant decision making- they have turned this country is a racial, discriminatory, fascist, economically poor, unsafe, internationally disowned and disliked country!
    Way to-go Heads of State! You couldn’t have done a better f***-up job!

    SHAME ON ALL YOU INCLUDING CT. (MAYBE YOU WILL NOT PUBLISH THIS AS THIS OFFENDS YOU AND A FEW OTHERS, BUT TRY TO DEAL WITH IT)

    NOW EVERY BODY CAN GO AFTER CLERGY OF OTHER RELIGIONS ALSO AND GET VIDEOS OF THEIR DOINGS BEHIND THE SCENES AND PUBLICLY SHARE THEM. WHEN YOU NAME AND SHAME A SPECIFIC MEMBER OF CLERGY, YOU ARE TARGETING THAT RELIGION. THAT IS WHAT IS MEANT BY RESPECT THE ROBE (OR CASSOCK OR ANY THING THAT DEPICTS ANY RELIGION)

    WHAT WE HAVE HERE IS A TOTAL BREAKDOWN OF RESPECT BETWEEN RELIGIONS. I CAN SEE THE AMOUNT OF MUSLIMS HERE TAKING THE UPPER HAND IN VOICING THEIR TRUE FEELINGS AND ATTITUDES.

    I ALSO UNDERSTAND FROM THIS MUSLIM ATTITUDE WHY PEOPLE LIKE GNANASARA BEHAVE IN THIS WAY. I LIKE THE OPEN THREATS, AGAIN FROM MUSLIMS, TO THE SINHALESE BUDDHIST TO WATCH OUT FOR THE DAY SOON TO COME.

    YES THBE DAY WILL SOON COME …
    BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME MUSLIMS WHO THINK THEY CAN SAY AND DO WHAT THEY LIKE, …
    BECAUSE THERE ARE MEDIA WITH SELF PROCLAIMED RULES THAT CARRY THIS STORY TO THE PUBLIC WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY, …
    AND BECAUSE THERE ARE BUDDHIST WHO JUST TAKE A STAND FOR OR AGAINST IN THE NAME OF BUDDHISM, WITHOUT ANY UNDERSTANDING OF THE REAL ISSUES AT HAND…

    EVERY CITIZEN OF SRI LANKA SHOULD KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THAT PROTECTING BUDDHISM AND RESPECTING ITS DOCTRINES IS THE SECOND PARAGRAPH OF THE CONSTITUTION OF SRI LANKA, WHICH ALL CITIZENS MUST ABIDE BY. BBS AND THE LIKES HAVE COME FORWARD SINCE THERE ARE RADICAL FUNDAMENTALIST GROUPS FROM THE MINORITY RACES AND RELIGIONS WHO HAVE DISREGARDED OUR CONSTITUTION AND ACTING WITH ARROGANCE. TRY THIS IN SAUDI AND GET YOUR HEAD CUT OFF. TRY IT HERE BECAUSE WE TOLERATE.

      what a foolish comment ! If it is in Saudi , then go and protest , why take it out on srilankan muslims who dont take to saudi idealogy ? Extremist groups amongst minority is a myth, How come you never thought of it or heard of it until the BBS planted in your head. If any clergy from any religous group has this track record and speaks in this manner then he doesnt qualify to be advocating his religion and must be stripped regardless if he is an imam or monk or bishop. instead of walking around the bush call a spade and spade and condemn this fake monk. All his speeches and tone is hate mongering , i doubt he has quoted even 2 lines from scripture during his talks !

    Typical behavior of Sinhala Buddhists. Ask the British if you do not believe me.
