Gnanasara Gets Five Weeks From Court Of Appeal

By Hilmy Ahamed

Hilmy Ahamed

Today, the Colombo Fort Magistrate issued an arrest warrant on the BBS chief Venerable Galagoda Atte Gnanasra Thero for failing to be present in Court when two cases against him were being heard. The warrant was issued because of a blunder by the lawyers representing Ven. Gnanasara. One of them claimed that he did not attend court, as there was a death threat on him. The other claimed that four police teams have been deployed to arrest the BBS monk, hence he feared arrest if he attended court. The magistrate issued the warrant as it was a blatant contempt of court. Now, the Police has no excuse for not hunting and arresting the fugitive monk. Will there be government or executive interference to thwart this court order?

Earlier, In blatant travesty of justice, Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero was allowed to continue to breathe the air of freedom for another 5 weeks when two Judges of the Court of Appeal, Justice L.T.B. Dehideniya and Justice Devika Tennakoon refused to issue an arrest warrant against the accused for not appearing in Court for the third time to face contempt of court charges? And this contempt of court charge comes from none other than the Magistrate of the Homagama courts Hon. Justice Ranga Dissanayake, who was hearing the case of the disappearance of journalist and social activist, Prageeth Ekneligoda, when Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasra Thero abused Prageeth’s wife Sandya Ekneligoda in open court when he had come to witness the trial. Would a lessor mortal get away with insulting the Court and not showing up three times at the second highest court in the legal system? The Appeal Court has jurisdiction to hear appeals from the High Court or any lower court, while its own decisions may be additionally appealed to the Supreme Court.

Interestingly, the Counsel at the Court of Appeal appearing for the fugitive monk and accused, Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero informed court that his client is unable to attend court since he is under death threats and he might be assassinated if he comes to court. It was not clear as to who would be interested in assassinating the revered monk, whether it is the special police teams that have been deployed by the Inspector General of Police on the orders of the Minister of Law and Order, Hon. Sagala Ratnayaka to hunt him down or from an external threat from Islamic jihadists or from the breakaway groups of Buddhist extremists which has led to internal conflicts. The escalating internal strife may cause extreme violence amongst the so-called saviors of Buddhism. The threat could also come from the Sinhala Buddhist extremist organizations that are now fighting in social media to get a higher share of the South Korean won.

Of course, prisoners transported for court hearings have been assassinated not just in Sri Lanka, but also in many other countries where drug lords and organized crime syndicates work in cohort with law enforcement authorities to carry out mafia style assassinations. It’s not long ago that our own mafia boss, Samayan and six other notorious criminals were shot at Ethanamadala, Jawatte road in Kalutara while being transported for a court hearing. This bold Chicago style assassination took the lives of seven criminals and two prison officials. A clear evidence of what money can buy within the prison and law enforcement units. But who would be interested in assassinating an attention-seeking monk?

The Counsel for the State objected and informed court that on the previous two occasions too, the accused was absent and the medical certificate tendered were supposedly not genuine, yet the learned judges of the Court of Appeal rejected the plea for a warrant and listed the case for hearing.  They clearly instructed the Defense Counsel to ensure that the accused is present in Court on July 18, 19 and 20 of July 2017 for the trial. In the meantime, Counsel for Ven. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara has filed an application for anticipatory bail, which has been fixed for hearing on June 22, 2017. A person who fears attending court due to death threats is seeking anticipatory bail.

The Court also observed that it would be inappropriate if all accused in courts take a similar stance in not attending court hearings and gave a stern warning informing Counsel for Ven. Gnanasara Thero to ensure that the accused appears before court without lame excuses on the next date. The Court also indicated that if the fugitive monk does not appear on the next date, an open warrant would be issued.

What is this drama Ven. Gnanasara Thero is enacting? First and foremost, it should be noted that THERE IS NO WARRANT SERVED TO ARREST Ven. Gnanasara Thero by any court of law. So why is the venerable monk being a fugitive and claiming that he would be arrested? Has his legal team misled him to believe that he is going to be taken in to remand custody if he obeyed the law and presented himself in court?

There lies the problem. If he appears in court on the contempt of court charge during the Ekneligoda hearing, he could be sentenced to a minimum of two to seven years. This is nothing to do with the 84 complaints made at police stations across the country by Muslims.  No Sinhala Buddhist or any other citizen in this country is going to shed a tear, should Ven. Gnanasara Thero be taken in to custody and the legal process followed for any illegal conduct, leave alone contempt of court charges. So, his only escape route is to cause a myth that he is going to be arrested because the Muslims have pressured the Government. The Government too is silent on the matter and is trying to blame it on the Joint Opposition and re-introduce the Prevention Of Terrorism act or something worse to postpone elections and muzzle public protests against it. The Muslims are, in common parlance, “Girayata Ahuwechcha Puwak Gediya wage”.

The President, Government, and Cabinet of Ministers have given hundreds of assurances that the violence against Muslims will be stopped; yet it goes unabated.  27 incidents have been reported during the last few weeks. One man has been arrested for the burning of shops in Maharagama based on the video evidence and eyewitness provided by the Muslims. The video could not be muzzled due to the smart move by the Muslims to release it on social media immediately after the burning of Fashion Leather Store in Wijerama. None of these are really racially motivated but undertaken to divert the country’s attention from the contempt of court charges that would eventually lead to the sentencing of Ven. Gnansara thero. Hundreds of Buddhist monks have been arrested and sentenced in various courts of law in the history of Sri Lanka.  The Government and the Police, for unknown reason is not announcing the real motives of the Buddhist prelate. There is nothing to believe that a Buddhist priest cannot be arrested for any criminal act. Two Buddhist monks were arrested over the killing of Prime Minister Solomon West Ridgeway Dias (SWRD) Bandaranaike on September 26, 1959. Somarama Thero was sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was executed in the Welikada gallows on July 6th 1962 and not a single Buddhist protested over the hanging of a Buddhist priest. He was seen as a murderer and nothing less.  Ven. Gnansara has blood on his hands from the Aluthgama violence, which marks three years today. He has hundreds of charges of threats, intimidation, violence, and arson against Muslim businesses and homes, not forgetting the constant verbal diatribe against the Mahanayake Theros as those who are just filling up their spittoons and placed in their positions by the British Raj, the President as a spineless leader, the Prime Minister as queer, The Minister of Law and order as a stooge, etc. None of these leaders have made any complaints against the insults that this violent monk continues to make. If these are not enough reasons for his immediate incarceration, what justice in the country?

    Don’t feel upset and worried, if man’s justice wouldn’t prevail, the good almighty God is there to do justice for this thug and criminal monk. None give two hoot, if they put him behind bars, accept those tiny few scoundrels running around him. Our judges don’t know or feel their power but in the US they do feel it. That’s why, one US politician said, a judge in a far away island Hawai has the power to stop our mighty President, when he gave the order to over rule the travel ban of Trump by taking into consideration of his foul campaign speeches about the minorities and in particular about the Muslims. Same ruling was up held by three judges of the 9th circuit appeals court of the US.

      Thanks for the write up and updated information on Ganasara..What you describe above is self-interest, for each of the stakeholders, the JO, The Govt, Ganasara and the Muslims who are victims. Please do keep exposing, as this is the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.————————————————————————————————————————————————————————Amarasir strongly objects you to referring to Ganasara, as “Venerable” and “Thero” That was in the past before he became a criminal and a killer through his proxies., and it is pointless to call him “Venerable” and “Thero”, as it is an insult to the others who are Venerable and are Theros.—– You may call Ganasara as Saffron clad Ganasara, which is correct and has support. —- Please call a spade, a spade!

      State sponsoring impunity programs have been part and parcel of the traditional businesses of srilanka for ages. Just because a new govt came into being, it would not be that easy to crush it fully. The president and PM in today s context have been caught – not being able to fulfil as they expected prior to coming to power. What is not corrupted and highly abusive int he country, finding it would be like searching for MUSTARD seeds from a place where nobody is dead.
      However, Unncessary respect being offered to SANGAYA CONSTUME seems to have been the tool for high criminals to hide themselves behind it and do the due pleasing their pay masters. In this country Ghanasara is to everyone s eye low level bastard but being servile to pay masters agenda. This is comparable to high criminals that wear burqua but planne high crimes on US and UK soils or any other places they hav efound their second home country. LATTER is the huge threat in UK today. That is contrast than anywhere else.

      In SRILANKA, under Mahinda Rajaakshe HE JUST LET every high criminals to raise their head, since he was power intoxicated thanks to the Artiste that made him a CARD BOARD king across the country.

      I think authorities should take every action against ANY KIND OF EXTREMISTS OR FACISTS – not let THEM extended further. Be it Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus or any others, the law should be equal to all
      MAY GODS BE BLESSED TO LANKENS IN THIS REGARD:

    Its not going to be long before the Muslims with their international network of terror organizations will lead siege to our beautiful nation. It is often said, a cornered animal would become the most ferocious when pushed to the wall. The Muslims have reached that stage, and we have not done a thing about it. There is no doubt that there would be a anti muslim riot soon as gnanasara plans and when that happens, we would have a million of our workers in the middle east losing their jobs and will be shipped home. Further the Arabs are our largest importers of tea and spices. The value of labour and trade far exceeds 10B . What or who could replace this? Sri Lanka is doomed

      ” we would have a million of our workers in the middle east losing their jobs and will be shipped home”. Maybe a few Arabs would send their maid and drivers. Otherwise, govt to govt, business to business, everything would run as usual whatever happens in SL. Arabs have a very unique mentality. It is us, we should sort out the things and decide if we really want another civil war and put the country another 50 years behind while keep on sending our women to clean Arabs’ wastes to fund the war while taking more loans from China to ease the burden. Remember, we all have suffered, sacrificed and tighten out belts to the max possible during the war time with one dream, that is to bring peace to the land. Now that we have the peace, we try to take it for granted and chase it away – Aren’t we the world’s dumbest idiots who don’t know to put our hard-earned peace for its best use?

      No most Arabs do business with Jews and Jewish run business and in the west many Arab owned businesses love to recruit Jews for their hard work ethic and shrewd business acumen. This in despite what is happening to their fellow Palestinian Arabs at the hands of Jews in Israel. You think the Arabs and other Muslim nations will care two hoots for these South Indian origin Dravidian converted Tamil immigrant Muslim of Sri Lanka. They can give themselves fancy names like Sri Lankan Moors and claim a fake Arab origin. However the Arabs Pakistanis and other Muslim nations know these people are not of Arab or Moorish descent but South Asian(Tamil) Hindu converts to Islam . The Saudis openly stated this during Rizana’s case. ” Sri Lankan Muslims are not of Arab descent but South Asian converts to Islam”. Gadhafi stated something similar when he addressed the Moors Islamic council during the non aligned conference in the 1970s. ” Some of you many have some Arab blood.” Basically meaning you are South Asians with a dash of Arab amongst a few. These Sri Lankan Muslim nations have gone and made complaints to many Arab/Muslim nations and they have not done anything. Gulf Arabs needs cheap labour and housemaids and Sri Lanka supplies this. Why should they jeopardise their economy for bunch of South Asian Tamil converts. They care two hoots for Arab refugees of Syria and Iraq, as if they will care for these Sri Lankan Muslims

        Once again you’re with your usual raven calling a dove black story :-) In Islam, ancestry doesn’t count. Muslims can be Arab origins, Indian origins or even poor Jaffna Tamil converts. It is you who have to be faking around your caste to look a higher one, or live on the mercy of egalitarian plans of the Sinhala Govt. No caste among Muslims. The blood banks in the Muslim areas are always with large amount of preserved blood products, LOL ;-)

        You’re a shameless individual to insult South Indian Tamils (Dravidian) as over 99% of your identity and culture are still depicting and influenced by Tamil Nadu that your conscience would anytime say the second home-land. On the other hand, unlike Arabs, other parts of your roots like Vaiko are ready to die for you and your cause and you’re kidding him.

          Really if origin and caste does not count in Islam why do you Sri Lankan Muslims admit the truth that the vast majority of you are descended from immigrant Dravidian low caste Indian Tamil Hindus and stop falsely claiming that you are descended from Arabs and Sri Lankan Moors, a name incorrectly used by the Portuguese to describe all South Asian Muslims but only used by Sri Lankan Tamil Muslims to hide their real origin. Why don’t you call your selves correctly as Sri Lankan Tamil Muslims, as origin and caste in not important to you?
          If ethnicity origin and caste is not important in Islam why did former Pakistan the only country in the world created on the basis of religion, that Islam is one break into two on the basis of language and ethnicity but Hindu India that has so many language castes and religions did not break.

            RSS, why are you bursting? Below are simple the facts I talked about:
            1: In Islam there is no casteism. (If you try to mix geographical factors with Islam, it is your ignorance) 2: Casteism still exists in Jaffna (can you deny?) 3: Your identity & culture are just a borrowed one from Tamil Dravidians in TN, despite you always claim you existed before Sinhalese came to the land 4: Because of your inferiority linked to your caste system (probably you originate from lower caste), you go bananas when others point at you.

            One of the reasons Jaffna Tamils historically converted to other religions is caste based discrimination (other reasons are Money & English education). So definitely we have once low-caste Tamils converts among Muslims, and now they have been dignified and we are all equal. So please don’t try to infiltrate your caste junk in to other religion.

            It is the known fact that Tamils, throughout the history, have been attempting to categorize the Sri Lankan Muslims as belonging to the Tamil race for selfish reasons in a bid to eliminate the SL Muslim from having its own unique identity. If you have concrete facts, you should try to change the history or appeal to SL Govt, not to treat the Muslims as Arab origin or as a distinct ethnic group from the Tamils. Your continued murmur here with comments will get you nowhere bro :-) We don’t have to screech on that as we know the fact, with supporting history & how the legitimate Govt treats us.

            For your other confusions with Shiite and Sunni, you will have to help yourself by finding the differences between religious sects and castes that alone will help to get answers to your own questions.

          Why are ISIS Sunni Arabs killing Shia Arabs all non Arabs Muslim or not in the Middle East? Why do Muslim Turks hate Muslim Arabs and Iranians and why do they all hate and kill Muslim Kurds? Why do Malay Muslims in Malaysia treat Indian Muslims largely Dravidian Tamil Muslims like you as second rates and call you Mamaks? Why is there caste amongst South Asian Muslims and tribes amongst Arabs? Answer all this and I will answer you?
          The truth hurts and you are screeching here. Shows you and the rest of the Sri Lankan Muslims cannot really accept your actual largely low caste Dravidian Indian Tamil immigrant origin and desperately want to cling to your fake Arab origin, as you people think it is more advantageous and looks good. Proves that origin and caste matters. You and your screeching is a good example. If you accepted and your actual origin and stopped screeching at me here , it would have proved to me, in Islam origin race and caste is not an issue. It is that is why in many parts of rural Pakistan Punjab, Muslims belonging to low caste families are persecuted by Muslims belonging to upper caste families.

            There the Australoid Tamil crow Real Siva Sankaran Sharma cawing again. This fellow must be an original ugly black Tamil having very high inferiority complex so he gets a great kick by calling Ceylon Moors low caste Indian Tamil converts. I wrote in response to this crow that even for 1000 years he caw, Moors ethnicity is not going to change into Tamil. Our Islamic culture, food, dress etc, differs like sky and ground with you slavish breed. So how can we compare ourselves with you? Sunnis are followers of original Islam. Shias and Ahmadis follows innovated version of Islam so they may fight to sort out their difference. Why the hell you Tamil crow worry about that? You must actually worry that Brahmins are keeping you as low caste under their feet. Malayalam Muslims who migrated to Malaysia are known as Mamak because they often call elders as Mama out of respect. So Malay called them mamak and the food they sell also as mamak food. If Malay refer mamak to second class Tamil Muslims, then you slave Tamil labourers must be lesser than third class breed for them. Definitely there is no caste system in any Muslims countries but some have their race and tribal system. What late Izzeth Hussain said is correct. There are third grade slavish Tamils and Sinhalese who are paid servants of Zionist and Christian fundamentalist to always write derogatory and defaming ways the Ceylon Moors.

            “Why are ISIS Sunni Arabs killing Shia Arabs all non Arabs Muslim or not in the Middle East?” Shiite and Sunni are not castes in Islam, however ordinary Shiites and Sunnis live in harmony. Why did Pirabakaran & his Tamil terrorists supporters killed other Tamils? The same applies here too.

            In South India or your original home land, it is Hindu converts to Islam brought their original caste system to the Muslim society in the region. What is funny here is your culture and tradition are built and still depend on (Dravidian of) South India while you try to isolate yourself and mock at them.

          99% of Sri Lankan Tamil culture is from Tamil Nadu . Stupid person Tamil language and culture is the same be it in Tamil Nadu or in Eelam. Just like German language and culture is the same where it is in Germany Austria or in the German parts of Switzerland and similar for the Anglo Saxon , French languages or cultures. There will be regional variations but the basic culture will be the same. That is why it is called Tamil German French, Anglo Saxon, Arabic cultures got it.
          You are just wailing and howling here as he has stated the truth and you cannot accept it. If all followers of Islam are the same , then why so many forms of Islam and Muslims in the world are now killing fighting raping each other in the name of language the type of Islam and creating chaos in the world. Why are Muslim refugees running away from these wonderful Utopian Islamic heavens where there is no difference in language origin and gender equality the barbaric Christian west in their millions and then creating chaos there too. I don’t see any Muslim running towards Saudi Arabia, Kuwait Malaysia ., Even Sri Lankan Muslims run to the Christian west claiming asylum stating they are ethnic Tamil Muslims fleeing persecution. To claim asylum you want to be Tamil but Arab for everything else. Like Siva states Tamil when it suits and not a Tamil at other times

            Rohan, you too are Australoid Siva supporter, may be you too an Australoid Tamil or Sinhalese. Muslim are same all over the world, no caste system but they have racial differences. Islam is not creating chaos but the western invaders creating chaos. Those who went to west are not 100% Syrians, there were Irag refugees, Afghanistan, Pakistan and large number from African countries creeping through Libya. Of course human smugglers are involved. Compared to those Syrian refugees who went to west very large amount went to other Muslim countries. Saudi Arabia around 2 million, Turkey 2.5 million, Jordan 1.4 million, Lebanon 450,000, UAE 242,000, Egypt 120,400, Kuwait 120,000 and in small amount in few other Muslim countries. Sri Lanka Muslim did not go to western countries as Tamils seeking asylum. They sought asylum as Shia or Ahmadi or army torture in their areas and that is a very small amount. Sinhalese too went and sought asylum, did they say they are Tamils? Shut your back licking mouth if you do not know anything.

            Rohan: It is you who seem to not understand Rishard’s point here. Language is only one element of a culture. What is the cultural identity you have created in SL when you claim your existence for over 2000 years? Currently you can only point at Tamil Nadu. And with this pathetic situation, why are you boasting that you’re a Peelam Tamil or indigenous Tamils and not Indian Tamil while you are still living on the glory of Dravidian South Indian culture and tradition.

            Who are your scholars? Artists? Musicians? Cultural icons? I bet all you would refer from TN, except your own innovative suicide bombers of men & women.

          Why do you use the name Rishard? Is it because you love and admire Rishard Badurdeen and what he did at Musali? On the false pretext of settling displaced northern Muslims he was settling thousands of southern Muslims with funds obtained from Gulf Arab states to Islamise Tamil majority Mannar? Do you love ISIS and want to steal Tamil lands to create Isis Salafist land and worship Arabs their culture and then use this as a stepping stone to Islamize the rest of the island?

            Hello Pandi Kutti (piglet), So the name you have picked Pandi Kutti is to remember your daddy pig that was sacrificed for the peace in SL in 2009? Thank God you have realized it wasn’t a real tiger but a pig camouflaged in tiger skin.

            Wow, you’re now worried that the island will be Islamized is a good sign that you guys started to look at SL as Sri Lankans finally, and not as citizens of “Peelam”. Anyway I don’t love ISIS, as I learnt from your mistake in falling in love with terrorists and getting betrayed, and simply used as a shield – If Vanni soil or Nandi Lagoon can talk, it will tell us more..

        PM is not a converted Buddhist. His Mother is a Buddhist and he took her religion. His father was a Christian, but his ancestors were Buddhists. So it is a case of re-conversion to the ancestral religion. You Islamic infidels are descendants of either Hindus or Buddhists. If you have any sense of shame, dump Islam and covert back to either Buddhism or Hinduism, both of which are far more superior to Islam.

      By calling only Muslim community leaders interference to stop narcotics trade, you are only trying to say non-Muslims can continue with the business (that also has the same impact on the youth)

      When a country’s law & order takes charge, why need community leaders interferences? When Rev. Gnanasara Thero goes wild, many people question the law & order, not Mahanayakas.

    If all “Muslim owned” businesses are burnt down as Lathief complains, there will not be any businesses left in Pettah, Fort, Kollupitiya, Bambalapitiya, Battaramulla, Kandy town, Galle or Matara. This lie is being spread to gain sympathy from the fools and NGOs to complete their agenda of owning 100% of Sri Lanka. A 2015 survey of Kandy showed that 95% of businesses on Dalada Veediya and all the cross streets, from petti kada to main stores, are owned by Muslims. Is this a healthy situation for an ethnically diverse Sri Lanka? The resentment of the Tamila and Sinhalese is natural because Muslims suck the blood out of Sri Lanka.

        “”Is this a healthy situation for an ethnically diverse Sri Lanka?”
        It was considered to be healthy to both fathers of the nation(Solomon Ridgway with wife SriMao) and Julius Richard J. We are from north india taxila (to be precise) pakistan created by unelected American Truman and also we are anti-communist please see what SriMao rice from the moon has done to the island with an embargo- children plying the bins for food- to Ronald Reagan with a baby elephant in one hand . Both Lankan leaders inclusive of Dudley slept with the Bohras and Memons saying Aryan the true Iranian for the salli malla (Indira Nehru hubby was Feroz Khan the iranian and for 2 shillings the naked fakir added a surname (Gandhi) that only patchwork culture anglo saxon permits within europe. now you see the anti – asia against the philosophy of hinduism and buddhism.(they died with their given christian and portuguese names intact) – a nation of dalit Patholayas as leaders unlike the one and only LKY & Choo.

        “”A 2015 survey of Kandy showed that 95% of businesses on Dalada Veediya and all the cross streets, from petti kada to main stores, are owned by Muslims. – Is this a healthy situation for an ethnically diverse Sri Lanka?” old codger the unp kanuva lover of india. Lanka is know as kudu country from the day of the hippies in the 70’s hum-bug- tote. This to feed the underbelly of muslims and sinhalese alike- the ltte worked on it from pakistan via delhi-bombay- europe to transport their drugs for guns

      Sivapatham, you need to climb the sivanolopatham to understand that the Muslims have traditionally been the traders. They have been invaded by recent Sinhala and Tamil concerns. There is a saying in Tamil – There should be a rival even for a “keera Kadai” for progress. That should be the motto, and not cause arson because some F…kers cannot compete in a level playing field. By the way, sorry about the burning of all your Surutu Kades in 1983.

        You Islamic idiotic racist, before 1983 there were more Tamil shops in Colombo than Muslim shops. It is only after Tamil shops were burnt and Muslims bought the burnt out property that there were more Muslim shops than Tamil shops. Find out in Malaysia why Muslims are unable to compete with Chinese. There is more than business acumen for this. Chinese are controlling Malaysian economy. This is the same in Srilanka where Muslim businesses are receiving interest free funding from Middle Eastern countries with a plan to take control of Srilankan economy. Unfortunately for Muslims, Sinhalese have woken up and want to eradicate this menace. If Muslims resort to decent trading practices they will be nowhere.

          Al-faqurlah: Let me tell you the trend: Muslims don’t buy properties most of the time, they run the businesses on rental premises. Likewise, Sinhalese don’t run businesses most of the time, they buy properties and rent them out.

How can it control when politicians from the inception hell bent on robbing the country and your monks destroying the minds of your people. Malaysian government does not bring all kind of business restriction to Chinese and not instigating racist to burn Chinese businesses. They are having an healthy competition with Chinese businessmen. Thanks god they do not have low class mentality like your racist.

    Dear Hilmy
    What is “venerable:” about this thug? You have ad nauseam referred to him “venerable”. Call a spade a spade. No appeasement works with the racists. That is what the Muslim leadership has been doing all these days. Hunting with the hounds and running with the hare. Minister Hakeem went to Geneva to campaign against Geneva Resolution on war crimes and gratify the medieval instincts of Raajapakses. You say, “None of these are really racially motivated”. Then what are they? Why did the Appeal Court judges handle this thug’s case with kid gloves – bending and breaking the law? Hands Off Sinhala-Buddhists in the garbs of monks! Otherwise, judges put their position, at risk. DISGRACEFUL !

    I am surprised that the writer refers to the monk in question as “venerable”. That generally means that he believes the monk should be venerated. However, it is apparent that he has no reverence nor respect for this man who openly commits crimes, is in contempt of court multiple times, is obviously well-connected to the power-hierarchy that keeps him safe from arrest or assassination and indeed a lengthy prison term.

    What appears from the statements made here, is that the law is enacted with blatant bias, and the justice system operates differently, depending on who is alleged, charged or sentenced. What hope is there for the ordinary people of Sri Lanka, social harmony and reconciliation when matters are so obviously mishandled by the team claiming “good governance”?

        Stop shedding crocodile tears for burning of Tamil shops in 1983. To say that only Surutu Kades were burnt is a lie and to state that Tamils have invaded Muslim area of business dominance only recently amounts to racism. If you read history properly, Tamils have been traders with ships taking merchandise to Far East and Middle East. Though Sinhalese got the bad name for burning Tamil shops and houses in 1983, it was the Muslims who bought the burnt out properties and prospered. There is no escape from divine punishment for this, and it seems to be coming true.

          Correct that Muslim Minister Mohammed whose family ironically originated from Nagoor in Tamil Nadu , organised thousands Muslim criminals and thugs to loot burn and destroy Tamil homes and business and kill and rape Tamil civilians . Later in 1985 at the request of JR Jayawardene he sent these same Muslim thugs to the eastern province to Kalmunai to start trouble between the Tamils and the Tamil Muslims in the east. After the 1983 riots , many Muslim hawkers had arrived in Jaffna and were selling many clothes and goods looted from Tamil homes very cheaply, as they know many Tamil refugees had fled to the north and east.. Most people in Jaffna never purchased anything from them, as they knew these Muslim hawkers were selling goods that were looted from Tamil homes. It was a Muslim minister who introduced standardisation during the 1970s to deprive Tamils higher education. Now a Shaitan from Mannar is continuing this dirty work that other Muslim ministers did during the JR/Srimavo regime

He is paid well for his derogatory comments on Moors by anti-Muslim rascals behind him. He is an Austroloid Tamil and suffering from inferiority complex.

          ” it was the Muslims who bought the burnt out properties and prospered” Is there a divine punishment for buying anything at a price the seller proposes? Tamils sold it to Muslims because they felt otherwise, it would be anyway taken by Sinhalese without a penny given to Tamils.

        Dear Hilmy, there is no point in complaining about judicial system in Srilanka. I have been writing in these columns that there is institutional racism in the system consisting of Police, Bar and the Bench. I had experienced this as a medico-legal officer in the past. No fair minded person can survive in this set up without being penalised or even losing his job. You will painfully realise this and will agree with me. By the way Rishard Badurdeen got thugs to hoot at the judge and throw stones at Mannar court house and nothing happened to him, because the judge was a Tamil.

        “”The threat could also come from the Sinhala Buddhist extremist organizations that are now fighting in social media to get a higher share of the South Korean won.”” Hilmy what garbage is this? Aren’t you being jealous that south korea does not have polygamy and treats people as people than with sharia law??”” South Korea was very poor before the Marshall Plan but today it’s mom and pop country with 43% buddhist, 34.5% protestants, 20.6% roman catholics, it’s clean high tech and prosperous therefore the literate southerners of lanka are studying korean language are scrambling for the opportunity to work there while you are playing race and religion politics to take away all trade for muslims.

    This Monster Gnanasara is a not a Buddhist, he is a rowdy pimp.If there is democracy in the country this pervert would have been behind bars by now. It is now very clear that some high up in the government is harbouring this nutter . This is a Political scandal.
    Hilmy, please don’t refer to this c**t as venerable, there are better words for this a**hole. If you do a survey among the Buddhists, 99% of them will not tolerate and accept him as monk.
    His days are numbered if the government don’t do anything soon the people will take the law into their hands.

      Roy, why is that nobody enlighten us with the facts of this Ghanasara.
      I have no idea having left the country for EUrope already long ago.
      I think childhood abuses by various means make some people that aggressive. Tihs si common to many high criminals also in Guanthaname prison.

      As I knew it – in my days in SL, we had no such threats or the like came from Buddhists. We had respected them more than anyone do today, whereever we just saw them strolling far away from us. Today, safron robe wearing monks are made to be laughter stocks… hariming real monks and their gentleness.
      Whatever we are compelled to hear from those PSEUDO monks are sending a message across the nation, as if they are no second to lay criminals.

    “The Government too is silent on the matter and is trying to blame it on the Joint Opposition and re-introduce the Prevention Of Terrorism act or something worse to postpone elections and muzzle public protests against it.” You got it right. Wimal Weerawanse also mentioned the same thing. My guess is our boss went to USA to attend a tuition class. The topic was ‘How to survive when the approval rate is zero’.

    Mr. Ahmed, I unequivocally condemn all and any attacks on anyone and in this context the attacks on Lankan Muslims and their shops etc. I wish law and order people were not that lethargic. It seems now they are finally apprehending people. Why not tell RW to form a small panel of non-political captains of industry and religious intellectuals to see why these are happening and investigate all the allegations and real and perceived accusations being hurled at the different communities by each other? I say non political because your politicians have zero credibility whether they happen to be Sinhala, Tamil or Muslim. Also why not reciprocate and have reconciliation meals or gatherings where Buddhists can pray or chant pirith along a Mosque and Muslims can pray near a Temple or Church in gathering of groups? I say this because of the beautiful gesture of majority Catholic Spanish in Grenada. Some opposed it but it was a multi religious prayer to celebrate breaking the muslim fast. Now I hope Muslims there reciprocate and allow Christmas prayers or Easter Prayers in their mosques too. That will be a great way to show Buddhists and Christians and Hindus in Sri Lanka that Muslims accept other faiths as their equals because this HAS To be a two way street; otherwise your folks come across as being assholes like the born again Christians. Read news article here. Also are you an Anti Semite like Lateef Farouk and hate Jews irrationally? Can you answer that question here please? THanks. I hope your “live and let live” also can be applied to Maldives, KSA etc- Sincerely Palitha

    He refers to that gayish sounding Thug Galabodda man in robes as Venerable because he is being a typical person of his community who acts worshipful and deferential to others but secretly are not. They do this with political leaders to get what they want.

    Venerable gnanasara get one week or five week from appeal court is not muslim hilmi ahmad concern. it is sinhalese buddhists concen. muslims have given facilities more than buddhists here. what else they need. muslims given chance to defame other religions five times a day over the loudspeakers. given chance to announce ‘ there is no god but Allah. five times a day. that may not hurt christians and catholics as their god may be same but surely it may hurt hindus. as buddhists do not believe existence of gods but existence of divine spirit that may not hurt them. but it is not god thing to do. but muslims are asking more privileges. what else do they need. do they need islam become only official religion here. people have every rights to criticize any thing as per democratic system. religions has no exception or privileges. what else muslims want. do they want to curtail basic human rights no that is not possible. everybody should have rights to criticize whatever .that is not in line with normal democratic principles. nothing is above the law. hilmi should understand that.

    Quran 5:33- “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”

    This is why we need reconciliation. If we get ISIS types who use their book of teachings called the Koran, they will wreak havoc. We do not want such Arab type mad men.

      Punishments very similar to modern day laws pertaining to those who wage war against the State, rising up against a legitimately elected government, creating mischief through spreading falsehood and reigning mayhem are all similar in scope to your cherry picked quotation from the Holy book. Capital punishment is nothing new and has been around since time immemorial. Hanging until death, shooting with intent to kill, long term incarceration, death through lethal injection are happening today in most countries of the world. These are done openly and with wide publicity to cause maximum impact, purely to be as effective deterrents to any other would-be trouble makers. Except in those times when the Holy Book was being revealed to mankind, crucifixion and amputation was also a form of capital punishment for THOSE WHO WAGE WAR AGAINST THE RELIGION, not on innocent civilians who go about their normal lives.

      Mixing up ISIS killing spree with what is mentioned in the Holy Book is an attempt to mix-up the issues in order to portray Islam as a religion of hatred toward non-believers espousing extreme violence against them. It may also be your own ignorance in understanding basic tenets of Islam and what it stands for as a religion of peace. However, there are provisions on how Muslims must DEFEND their religion, religious practices, their families, their wealth and their way of life, even at the risk of being martyred, if that is what it takes to safeguard their religion Islam.

    Hilmy Ahamed: “……..Two Buddhist monks were arrested over the killing of Prime Minister Solomon West Ridgeway Dias (SWRD) Bandaranaike on September 26, 1959. Somarama Thero was sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was executed in the Welikada gallows on July 6th 1962 and not a single Buddhist protested over the hanging of a Buddhist priest…………” Correction: Somarama was NOT a Buddhist monk when executed. He was manipulated to commit the crime and was again manipulated to change his religion before execution. The case unearthed some unsavory habits of Buddharakeeta and the then Ceylonese found disgusting.

      Wasn’t BuddhaRakkitha humping Wimala W? Somarama became a Christian in Jail. I guess he thought that will save his (arse)soul? So many Catholic priests molest boys in Ceylon and Monks molest abiththayas too.

      BY THE WAY beheading enemies of Islam is in the quran. There is no room for doubt. If you are against them or you are an infidel the preferred method of doing away with you is beheading. Do you want those monkies to plague and curse our land of multiple faiths? NO! Then do not tempt the ISIS monkies that Hilmy, Lateef etc never have the balls to condemn to start using our stupid BBS monkey to foment terrorism of the Islamic type
