Gnanasara Surrenders

After evading arrest for nearly a month, Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara surrendered to the Colombo Fort Magistrates court this morning.

Two arrest warrants were issued against the firebrand monk, one in May 25 on charges of inciting religious disharmony and another warrant was issued by the Fort Magistrate last week after Gnanasara failed to appear in court’s over a contempt of court issue. Gnanasara has been evading arrest and has been hiding claiming that there is a conspiracy to assassinate him.

      Jehan————–“Aluthgama murderer should be in jail for long time.”————–Where are you living? This is Sri Lanka its the state’s duty to protect Buddhasasana and anything that resembles saffron. Buddhasasana Minister Wijayadasa Rajapaksa has failed in his most important responsibility to protect Gnanasara hence we should demand the government to sack him and call for fresh elections. People have no confidence in the government which does not fulfill its constitutional obligation. ————–The Sangha should take this government to task.

          Idiot Gemunu.
          Sinhala Buddhists have gone from 60% in 1911 to 76% today. You call that a decrease? You should learn to count.
          “Holy Bible banned in all Muslin Countries. Churches are demolished in Muslim countries. ” Go to Malaysia/Bangladesh/Pakistan/Turkey and see. Don’t write rubbish on CT.

    With two warrants and the police proving their incompetency in arresting until he surrenders shows the legal system in Sri Lanka. Yet the Sinhala Buddhist judges will give him bail to go out and spew his hatred.

      Burt ——It is the primary responsibility of the Minister of Buddha Sasana the Hon. (Dr.) Wijayadasa Rajapaksa to protect Gnanasara simply because the thug drapes himself around in saffron rags(?). What have Sri Lankan judges got to do with justice, law and order? Judges are ornamental part of the constitutional requirement. ——————————————————-Had you allowed MR and the clan to reign for another few years they would have removed the irritating chapters on Justice, rule of law and other unnecessary clauses relating to legal matters from the constitution.

      Spring Koha ——“Lock him up! and throw away the key.” ————Too late, like the famous Harry Houdini the escapologist, the saffron clad thug actually escaped from remand prison before even stepping into one. The only difference between the two is that this is not magic nor illusion. This is for real.

    Did Rajapaksa tell Ganasara that he could not take the pressure anymore?

    “Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapkshe yesterday denied allegations of harbouring Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Galabodaatte Gananasara Thera.”

    This thug should be given a very long jail sentence, Take his robe off. He is a disgrace to fellow innocent good monks, Also disgrace to Buddhism. How could the people respect Buddhism for what this thug has done. I cannot understand why the police could not find this man in a small country. I think it is because he is wearing a yellow robe, Does not matter who, any one who break the law should be punished. This man even to look at makes me angry with beard and do not have a proper shaven head. All I could see is a well fed thug in yellow robe. .

    For So called Racist Thug of a Priest Called Gnanasara.. with two arrest warrants surrenders to court after two and is released on bail with no penalty for purging justice in Sri Lanka . and we have the top politicians saying our judges up hold the law to the word. If it was a commoner he will be behind bars without bail.

    Western World is all watching this Drama and when the War Crimes cases come up , our judges will be under the table and western judges will be sitting on top of them.

    SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS.

    My ancestors have been Buddhists for centuries/at least three as my mother told me more than 50 years ago. During the last 50 years there had been two Buddhists priests in our family educated and tutored by the very famous erudite Nayake Thera Bellana Gnanawimala..We have been his true followers. Since the advent of thugs like Gnanasara I have taken a firm decision not to worship any Buddhist monk, not to attend any temple. I will write a note to my son before I die not to give Paansakoola of my behalf but take my body strait away to the Medical College. I am so disgusted of the Buddist monks included the so called Mahanayakes who are asking us to protect dirty scoundrels like Gnanasara.

      “”are asking us to protect dirty scoundrels like Gnanasara.”” count your blessings moron!

    Now that the fugitive has surfaced, police must keep an eye on him. He is bound to go into hiding again.

    After all, it was in Sri Lanka that two Buddhist monks were sent to the gallows, in
    the SWRD^s assassination case, and not anywhere in the world, now these silent Mahanayakes breaking their silence is strange – one wonders if this is following prompts from a Cabinet Minister or H.E. ??????
