By Colombo Telegraph

Court documents obtained by the Colombo Telegraph show that Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary and vociferous hardline monk, Galabodaaththe Gnanasara pleaded guilty to hit-and-run charges filed against him by Grandpass police in 2000.

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.

    We thank The Colombo Telegraph for exposing this thug in a saffron blanket. He is running riot. High time our Mahanayakas, including Ven Kirama Wimalajothi Thero, put a halt to this mad escapade.

    Gundo, April 11,
    “Gnanasara backed by Rajapaksa& Co.”. No. By the Norwegians and Formerly Muslim -linked Norwegian NGO WVF.
    Didn’t you read Withanage’s interview (Asian Tribune) where he said that eight persons including 6 monks and two laymen including himself were taken to Norway,Confirmed by Norwegian Embassy), Sweden and France to meet some Tamil Diaspora groups in 2011. It was after that BBS was formed. Arne Fjorft who set up the Norwegian World View Foundation (WVF) was obviously instrumental in arranging the visit. Solheim too was there to meet them.
    This Arne’s WVF operated here through association with former Former Foreign Minister ACS HAmeed and his brother Nhuman was running it here. They got the funds for Muslim welfare.Later Sarath Amunugama now with the Rajapaksa government ran it.That was Hammed’s arrangement to keep him out of Harispattuwa politics.
    How is that Arne’s WVF and the Norwegians are now after some so called Buddhists and helped to form the BBS and other extreme groups? Curiouser and Curoursier! Doesn’t this require a probe? Whether some Muslims and this so called Buddhists along with the Diaspora are involved with this Norwegian NGO and Norwegians are trying to destabilise this country. Thiis is something the Defence Secretary should go into since his name is being dragged into this BBS affair.

    There are “Hora Hamuduruvos”who destroy the name of Buddha after becoming racist Politicians. They follow the same pattern of corrupted politicians of the MARA’s regime.The unfortunate situation is that all reasonable Hamuduruvos are passive and submissive and allow what ever happened to the country.All these Hamuduruvos are fed by people but nothing doing for the interests of the common people.

    Thanks Peace. W for some facinating inside info.

    Ven Gnanissara was charged and has pleaded guilty for a driving offence.

    Who say’s there is no Law and Order for Govt supporters.

    If we are to believe what we have read and still reading here this Thera is an A class supporter, who is handled by the Defence Sec.

    Has none of these stone casters ever got involed in drink driving , accident or any other trffic offences?.

    Sumanasekera,
    This is not all the fascinating info.on Norwegian link. Like Wiki Leaks more can surface. There are knowledgeable people here and abroad among Sinhalese and Tamils who know about dealings of Arne Fjoroft and Hameed’s mafia.
    Galaboda Gnanissara himself was the part of the eight monks who visited Norway in 2011. He was not in BBS then but heading another group. Those who were taken to Norway were obviously hand picked from different groups for their prospective usefulness in the destabilization process. Gnassisara was already before the Traffic Magistrate Court for drunken driving and other offences in 2000. So the Norwegians knew how to select potential trouble makers, like the RAW in the 1980s when creating the background for ethnic riots of July 1983 and fueling it for India to intervene on the pretext of the refugee problem caused to India. This is why a full probe is needed on this whole affair, how foreign interests are trying to destablise the country.
    How is that the antiMuslim wave appeared suddenly on the eve of Geneva 2013?

      Dear friend Peace Wallah,

      I do asked more evidence pertaining to the context nothing else,because the only ex party evidence which elaborated here seem to be occurred in year 2000. Because it was only photo copy why he didn’t prove it is a genuine document with other means. Now it is year 2013. Why he took such a long time period ti reveal it to public? Why the writer did not contact vena. Galabodaaththe Gnaanasara thero? Why he did not contact the maha sangha authority? There so many ???????

    This safron robed man in the video loudly scold at the alms givers and the rural buddhist monks in that video. I remind my Grand ma name them – PINGUTHTHARAYOS – name of the Buddhism, trying to LIVE UP their criminal life.

    May be he should have been street monger before becoming a monk.

    My problem: stupid folks incl. Rajapakshes support him – not considering who is he and what criminal energies he could have.

    This is not second to allow scot free life for Mervin or not ?

    Chikaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay very unbecoming of a monk who is supposed to be the guardian of the sinhala buddhist race. but wait how long will it be till the BBS comes out saying this is a thambi conspiracy to discredit their organisation? Daaamuda adiyak?

    Yes Nabil,

    Conspiracy theory is brought up when it is not pleasant to hear facts.Can anyone deny Hammed and Cos links with Norwegian NGO WVF? Now Arne Fjoroft is hobnobbing with so called Buddhist groups. After very recent remonstrations by these so called Buddhist groups, Arne Fjroft visited BBS HQ at Thunmulla Junction. The Norwegian Ambassador with another official also visited the same place. Though the visits took place separately Arne and the Ambassador met there. This is all found in Withanage’s interview record. Is there an attempt to hide something? Perhapsm more incentives to hide the source of trouble.

    Yes, It is easy to pooh pooh these as conspiracy theories. Even RAW’s intervention was a ‘conspiracy’ theory till Indian media itself exposed it, and IPKF’s first COS Harkirat Singh confirmed it.

    “Oh people, if you are depressed, just visualise how this GHANDASARA would look like without his saffron blanket, running totally naked, being chased by a horde of women human rights activists with polkaddu handas in their hands: ding dong bell. Take this medication three times a day.”

    “Dude!!!! I just cracked up 10q 4 da dig… LOL… I can close my eyes and picture him being chased by women with Pol katu handa’s… If the fore fathers of USA saw it, they would of hanged his bell in Philadelpia… if u know what I mean… (^-^)”

    “This thug in saffron should be stripped of his robes and paraded naked on the streets.
    He is an INSULT TO BUDDHISM and embodies the values of his patrons the Rajapassa brothers military dictatorship”

    Ah!…so this is a truly civilized and buddhist way of dealing with this person??? The theme of women chasing a naked man with spoons made of coconut shells in their hands. Ding Don bell???!!! I presume this is a reference to the movement of the genital organ of the naked man dangling as he runs!and then no less than a claim that the character of the that the forefathers of the USA were such that they would have hung the mans genitial in Philadelphia. And it is recommended that readers imagine this scene three times a day as medication!!!

    Sri Lanka is beginning to produce an interesting culture.

    Peace Wallah,

    You are right on the money.

    Eric Solheim was a big time donor for Buddhist Temples as well as the LTTE.

    He has even constructed Buddhist Temples in Norway.

    Very interesting.

    I salute the Colombo Telegraph.

    CT has demonstrated its integrity and bravery in publishing this enlightening episode.

    This is Barbarism at its peak.

    It is revealing how Barbaric the behaviour of some Budhdhist clergies are.

    Silence on the part of the Mahanayakas to this barbarism by monks simply shows there is no discipline or decorum among Budhdhist clergies.

    This news item requires wide publicity in all newspapers if Budhdhism is to be pritected.

    Colombotelegraph – hats off to you for exposing this thug not a monk and his dirty BBS!!!

    To call him a monk is a sin for Buddhism, it’s a great religion and there are thousands of good decent Buddhists in our country.

    This is a person who has the blessings of Gota and Mahinda and Co. Now the people could imagine what kind of people they are?

    Colombotelegraph your are fearless and champion of exposing the truth and true character of these people. We are glad that you are now in Facebook, Twitter and WordPress. If Facebook is country, it would be right behind China and India but its daily population raise is way higher than China’s and India’s put together.

    In the country Gota, Mahindha and Co could muzzle the media and kill journalists but not in the WWB and the Cyberspace. Here its free for all. Their master China is struggling to check WWB but then how this Co could do it? They wouldn’t be able to touch Colombetelegraph even with a finger, for that matter even with a remote pole. If they want they have to bring down the entire WWB and Cyberspace. This is no way possible.

    Colombotelegraph you are not a news channel for us to know the truth but a wonderful forum for like minded people to post their comments, ideas and suggestion for the good of the people and country.

    We know Colombotelegraph is manned and run by some of the best fearless exiled journalists of Sri Lanka who got out of the country to save their lives from Gota, Mahindha & Co’s terror.

    Colombotelegraph we those who know English have many avenues for news but the ordinary Sri Lankan Sinhale, Tamil and Muslim people are hungry for the truth and real good news. Hence, please host your contents in Sinhale and Tamil languages for them. If you are short of man power please at least do a Google translation and host them.

    Why cant a Buddist monk drink a bit and drive a bit faster. After all they are Buddhist monks. The government should give them chauffeur driven cars and liquor should be delivered to their home. Some halal drinks does no harm

    It is a shame for the whole Sinhala Community. Why can’t the Maha Sanga take suitable action on this monk for thuggery wearing a robe? The Robe of this thug monk must be removed for the sake of Buddhist community in Sri Lanka. Wake up Sinhala Buddhists.

      The BBS Secretary says that he has no knowledge of such an incident ‘as he was not connected to the BBS at that time’. Does not that statement itself confirms the truth of the story?

    This video of a night incident which is shown after the disruption of the anti-war rally. Can someone tell me as to what that second incident is? Where and when did it occur? And what actually happened?

    This sounds as if the Ven. (Venerable, NOT Venereal) Gnaanaasaara was verbally attacking a Sinhala person (and possibly harassing him). If he is genuinely attacking a Sinhala person, then here we have living proof that the Ven. Bhikku is genuinely non-racial and non-discriminatory. This should confound his critics.

    I am not surprised at the Ven. Bhikku’s non-racial behaviour. Because genuine fascism is non-discriminatory and non-racial.In fact, I am not surprised at his behaviour at all! Neither am I surprised at the emergence of the BBS phenomenon. This is the natural logic of Sinhala-Buddhist ultra-nationalism. As Minister Anandatissa de Alwis said in his radio speech on the venerable SLBC in the first days after the July 24-27th anti-Tamil pogrom in 1983, it was all a conspiracy by some un-named group (by innuendo and implication, the JVP which was immediately banned) which was fanning the flames of racial violence. The Minister, who was the first government spokesman to say anything at all after days of chaos and tragedy, said (something to the effect): “The conspirators first targetted the Tamils. Their next target is to be the Muslims, and then the Christians …”. He stopped at that. Significantly, there was no mention of the Sinhalese or Buddhist. Just as significantly, MR, in that famous post-victory speech, said that hereafter there are “no minorities” in SL. He never mentioned the “majority”. By implication, ONLY the majority exists! If this not genocidal, what is? Fascinating pathologies. In those more innocent times, Anandatissa’s innuendo performed a better obfuscating function than the pathetic efforts of our Malinda Seneviratne. Dear Malinda’s last piece is so patently obfuscating in intention. He stumbles! After some of his ramblings about the anti-BBS vigil, one is not clear as which words are Malinda’s and which are of his “Muslim friend”. Such desperation to shore up his crumbling fantasy of a Sinhala empire! Malinda is little different from his Buddhist night-clubber compatriots. Coffee-parlours are as elite and westernised!
