Gnanasara Seeks Supreme Court Intervention Against His Arrest

Bodu Bala Sena’s General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara today filed a Fundamental Rights petition seeking the court’s intervention to prevent his arrest.

The FR petition was filed through his lawyers. Gnanasara has gone into hiding claiming that there is a conspiracy to assassinate him.

On May 25, the police claimed it had deployed several units to arrest the firebrand monk, who has been charged for inciting racism against the Muslim community. However, the police is yet to apprehend him. Last week the police said it had arrested a supporter of the BBS who is believed to have set fire to several shops owned by Muslims.

      Sali, badudeen or hakeem have not issued speeches of hate or incited violence against anybody. Poor EXTREMIST butt hurt sinhala buddist giving loku talks hiding under a Christian name LOL. The BBS has openly admitted that they are capable of terrorism 2 days back so they should all be lined up and shot in the head. This time if he is not arrested he’ll have a real threat to his life. Only jokers believe that the budda sasana is above the parliment, its best you form your own country in the south and leave the north to the peaceful sinhala buddists and minorities.. You can have your own terrorist state in the south. Gnanasara begging for mercy while hiding and this terrorist hiding a under a Christian name all indicates they are all ball-less cowards.

        Coolio, idiot, ——Sali, Badudeen, Hakem, etc, may not have issued speeches of hate, but they have antagonized and provoked Sinhala Buddhist community, destroyed Sinhala-Buddhist heritage and archeological sites and most of their “Muslimization of Sri Lanka” activities are still underground. ———————————————————————————————————————————————- Idiot Coolio, why are you hiding behind several names but non off them are Marakkala names??????? ———————————————————————————————————————————————- From the beginning of times, Buddha Sasanaya have been superior to any governing body whether it’s a parliament, monarchy or other. ———————————————————————————————————————————————- And the whole island is Sinhala-Buddhist, those who can’t stand it, is free to get the hell out of here.

      He should be in prison by now. What? He is scared to go to prison? How long can he run? You can run Nanasara but you cannot hide. Give yourself up like a hero without hiding in manholes.

      If anyone else would have been went hiding, would he or she be given the chance to express this way ? No, why Mahanayaka theros stay as if they have nothing to say inthis regard ? Why then we call those Mahanayakas as athi pujya mahanayaka . .. I think even if some have alrady loss their lively hoods, Mahanaayakas seem to be still sleeping their slumber.

    This bugger Gnanasara is a common criminal there is nothing the Supreme court can do to help him. After getting to set fire to lot of properties Sri Lankans and he I responsible for it. He should suffer for it additional to compensating the victim for which I doubt be has the finances.
    It is a insult to not only for Buddhists but for all faiths to allow a criminal accommodation in a Vihare. He should be chased out stripping him off his saffron sheep skin.

    With a long record of spreading hate and inciting the ignorant, all caught on tape, I am sure there will be plenty of crimes to charge this despicable thug, and find legitimate charges, including hate crimes. Of course the Supreme court must adhere to the laws of the country, but one does not hard to dig deep to unearth the dirt on this scumbag. He has disturbed the peace many times.

      Arrested Gentleman? He is a thief with several cases of robberies pending against him. But may be according to your mental growth a thief is a gentlemen.

      So if a thief is a gentlemen, insurance fraudsters, rapist, murderers, Monks uttering filth, threating and terrorizing others, and all other people committing crimes should be gentlemen too.

      Further these people should not be sent to Jail because they are gentlemen. They should be invited to your house for a bottle of Arrack.

      But the people who don’t do all this should be sent to jail. Isn’t that right John.

      “Please DO NOT grant him ANY favors!!!!!”

      That’s asking too much from the Sri Lanka judiciary.
      He has all the attributed to get what he is requesting:
      Sinhalese
      Sinhala Buddhist (Not the real one like JO)
      Monk
      Rapped in a banana peel
      Adopted son of the Raja’s

    This is not surprising. Gota did the same thing. He should be tutoring him well. Is it the same legal team that’s working for Ganasara.
    The Rajapaksa’s could be even paying the legal bill.

    CT has again proved that it is a anti-buddhist website whoch favours thiestic religions. Wahabi muslims has attacked and damaged a mosuw in Kathankudy. the attackers had come with swords and wooden poles when they destroyed the mosque and injured the devotees init. HIndus also accuse Muslims in the east for destriying 61 hindu religious places including statues. CT is targeting only the Tamil christian, and anti-buddhist readership here.

    IN CT news of 11 June the police said that the suspect arrested in connection to several arson attacks on Muslim shops in Nugegoda and Wijerama areas is a resident of Maharagama and has been identified as a member of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS). But BBS denied any links. If and when Gnanasara is taken into custody BBS will deny any links! Gnanasara’s fear of assassination is real. He must tell the Supreme Court that the assassin is from inside.

    When the Hawaii judge gave the order against the Trumps’ travel ban, he didn’t ask for any submissions or any another evidences from the defence team of the agrived party. He solely gave the judgement on the basis of the materials available in the public domains – Trumps’ campaign speechs which were highly anti Minority and anti Muslim. In the case of Gunanasara, in YouTube alone, there enough videos which clealerly show that he is violent and dangerous to the society, these alone enough to implicate him. Last time he cried to the judge, and got the bailout but this time, he is in for the long haul for the charges are non-bailable, that’s the reason guy gone underground. Also there are rumours that guy has already slipped into Thailand, and on his way to joint his buddy in Myanmar.

    The judiciary is mostly Buddhist.
    If a Buddhist judge tries and punishes a monk, whatever crime the latter has committed, he will be shunned by fellow Buddhist judges, Buddhist lawyers, and Buddhist laymen and women.
    Same will happen to Buddhist police personnel and lawyers – both private and state – who apprehend, produce in court and lead evidence against a monk.

    This happened to those involved in cases against Buddharakitha and Somarama Theros in the SWRDBandaranaike murder case, but this is not well known.

      We do not subscribe to your views as Buddhist Judges.On many cases judges found
      Yellow robed men guilty and punished them accordingly.
      This is the result of Politicians protecting them.

      “The judiciary is mostly Buddhist.” That is because of the Sinhala Only policy of politicians who sent their children abroad to study in English and even French.

      “If a Buddhist judge tries and punishes a monk, whatever crime the latter has committed, he will be shunned by fellow Buddhist judges, Buddhist lawyers, and Buddhist laymen and women” –

      I think you are confused. A true Buddhist will stand up for truth and justice and if he is a true follower of Buddha then he will have to do what is right otherwise he will have to suffer repercussions according to Buddhist philosophy.

      But for a Chauvinist, racist Sinhalese that could be a different matter. So please don’t confuse Sinhala Chauvinism and racism with Buddhism

        Drama re Gandassara is happening to script. Step by step…next Gota or MR might hire a contractor to kill Gnanasara n blame it on Muslims…SL is facing a towering inferno…Gnanasara is following Gotas style n instructions. Gota may deny that he is involved with BBS. Soon he will have gandassara killed…we are looking at a small part of a bigger plan. If not Gota might use ganadya to assassinate MS n RW..so he could come to power.. SL is going to face some hard times …

    Supreme court should kick his case out and immediately arrest him when and where ever he is spotted. Those who are harboring him, irrespective of their positions should also be locked up without bail for harboring a community thug. He should never be given any bail and should be locked up at least as long as Pillayan is in custody. If Pillayan can be locked for such a long period there should be no reason for this thug to be given bail. Ministers Sagala and Wijedasa should be given 3 weeks to catch this thug and remand him, if they do not achieve this end, these two ministers should be fired from their post. Let Yahapalana prevail. There is no point in President giving orders, what we need is action.

    The Sinhalese and Tamil Lankans must unite immediately and fight back before Islam with its terror engulfs Lanka. The Moslems are breeding in Lanka like vermin, Sinhalese and Tamils have only a few years before Lanka becomes an Islamic Republic. Time to act is now!!

    The latest decision by the court in support of The Thero has cemented his Authority of him ,over Buddhism, Sinhalese of all Christians and Buddhists and of cause the die hard support of the Hindu Community.

    The entire Sinhalese Community is behind him ,it will be disastrous for Muslims to continue their faith in their Ministers.
    There is only one hope left and may be the final one.
    The Muslim clergy may and can organize a dialogue with All the so-called Buddhist hardliners and sit and make note of every Single case and sincerely investigate together and reach a peaceful solution.
    The Balangoda Shrine has been an issue since 1960’s as far as I can remember ,to date no solution has been reached, Muslims must decide their priorities for the sake of Permanent peace for the future generation.
    Pls keep in mind you are not at war with few monks ,but with almost 90% of the population of this country .
    Wake up to reality, even the Court is with him and why ????

        There is no need for people like Gnassara to come up, if only Srilanka government acts to curtail Islamic fundamentalism that is creeping into the country. Most of the Buddhists feel that government is not doing enough and will back such people. Muslims must be told in no uncertain terms that this is a Buddhist country and they will have to fall in line with Buddhist customs. It is obvious to any Buddhist that Muslims are being allowed to have a free run of practicing their madness just because of their votes. Enough is enough and bring Muslims down to earth.

    It is pathetic it seems your community can be lead to the slaughter house in beards as you sound so naive and will believe any dung .

    Justice you press the perfect button .
    I agree with you 100% ,and to be brutally frank ,the same would apply to members of any religion where in a Country they are a Majority, no matter which religion which Country.
    There is only one country out of the many I been to who do not give a damn what religion or race you belong to you break the Country’s law and by which it has risk of upsetting the sociopolitical order and National security ,they will beat the life put of you and That is Singapore. Jehovah’s witness and Quranisn ate both banned in Singapore ,they consider both a threat to the traditionally in harmony religions in the country .
    Theravada and Sunni Schism are the majority religions but not above the law

    Justice in this country is something not meant for the minorities. From the days of July 1983 riots until today, not a single MINORITY victim of these organized violent activities, have ever been compensated or for that matter the culprit / instigator of such incidents have been dealt with and put behind bars.

    So why are we crying for justice in this country now ? We will never get it in this country. We have the Creator who will protect us.

    Let us use our intellect and elect more suitable people to Parliament the next time. Sustenance comes from to us from the Creator, NOT from these politician

    In this month of Ramadhaan, turn towards the Lord and He is solve matters for us.
