Gnanasara Withdraws SC Petition As Independence Of Country’s Judiciary Comes Into Question

Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara today withdrew the Fundamental Rights petition he had filed at the Supreme Court early this month which sought the court’s intervention to prevent his arrest.

Gnanasara

Gnanasara’s lawyers had said that there was no need for the petition anymore as they had already received the necessary outcome yesterday, and hence the petition was withdrawn. Gnanasara was released on bail Wednesday despite serious charges against him, including obstructing police from exercising duties, and also for making hate speeches and insulting the Quran.

In November, the Secretary of the Sri Lanka Thawheed Jamath group Abdul Razick who was arrested by the police on charges of insulting Buddhism was ordered to be remanded by the Colombo Additional Magistrate, however yesterday when Gnanasara’s case came up, despite having even more serious charges than Razick, the same court, the Colombo Additional Magistrates Court ordered for Gnanasara’s bail, which has raised many questions pertaining to the independence of Sri Lanka’s judiciary.

In recent months, Gnanasara has been seen openly insulting the Quran, and in November he even threatened to launch a bloodbath in the Muslim predominant area of Maligawatte. In another incident in 2014, Gnanasara forcefully entered a press conference organised by Muslims and Buddhists and obstructed the police from exercising their duties, while last month in Kurunegala, he was seen openly defying the police when they tried to arrest him. However, despite the severity of the charges, the Colombo Additional Magistrate released the firebrand monk on bail.

Yesterday, Gnanasara’s arrest and subsequent granting of bail has been seen as ‘stage managed’ as no sooner he was arrested by the Police Organised Crimes Division (POCD), within less than an hour he was released on bail.

Both the government and the police have been accused of soft peddling action against Gnanasara and his BBS. Last year Gnanasara took responsibility for the 2014 Aluthgama riots against the Muslims, but no action has been taken against him.

Gnanasara shot into limelight in 2012, and has been leading gangs running riot across the country since then. Even during the previous government under ex-president Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gnanasara’s group enjoyed impunity, with Gotabaya Rajapaksa, the defense secretary at the time, openly supporting events organized by the BBS. However despite a change in government in 2015, the impunity appears to continue for Gnanasara, and he has received a further boost following the support of Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Champika Ranawaka, who are two senior ministers in the present coalition government.

Since April this year, Gnanasara has renewed his hate campaign against the Muslim community in the country, and over two dozen Muslim owned businesses including mosques have come under attack. (By Munza Mushtaq)

      The above mentioned cannot happen without the support of Maithripala Sirisena too!?

      If not we would have seen an end to the BBS and other Buddhist terrorist organizations and a crackdown on and the prevention of the possible emergence of any muslim terrorism or any other terrorism.

      This manufactured attack against the minorities only exposes the true nature of the individuals creating these minority terrorist groups to turn the people against each other so that they too can plunder the country like the Rajapaksa criminal network!!

      Is this why no action is being taken against the Rajapaksa criminal network, is a part of this network in this government too!!?

            Jai_ Bolo,
            there is something radically wrong with you.
            You seem to be suffering from Psynocockitis which translated into simple words means ” sudden rush of shit to the brain.”
            The world is in a mess because of people like you and if buffoons like you voice your stupid views then it will be a bloody mess.
            Its a pity that wankers like you exist in this good world, a world where all good people wish to live in peace and harmony.
            You should be locked up in a small dark room and the key thrown into the deepest part of the sea never to be found. You should remain there till you whither away and the room should be blown up without a trace.
            We know that your stupidity will not enable you to understand this but then stupids are also a creation of God.
            Anyway you will die a sad and lonely person and before and this happens make your peace with mankind in this good world.
            Oh ! by the way stop looking at Porno on the internet. That is what’s affecting you.
            God have mercy on you and good luck. Peace to you.

      Not this withrawal, but the day Ghanasara s arrest was just a media display – onthat day only the world got to know to know that

      1) Srilanken law and order issues are just for jokers
      2) No means belonging to the category of independent of Judiciary even if the current authorities repeatedly do so
      3) Law and order is just acting as a law – for minor crime doers, the state seems to be not taking it serious yet, even if Ghansara at el, is beleived to have instigated of high crimes from firing to shoping complexes and even harming people physically, just becauase they are mulim srilankens
      4) And this particular aggressive monk has hosted Myanmar counterpart -Wirathu, and Wirathu is subjected to an year long ban not allowing him any public speeches any more, by their state….but lankens today, licking the balls of lanken Wirathu has been a threat to peace and harmony for all of this country.

    Be strong like Tamil disaphora , go international let the world know. Expose expose expose , fight for democracy. Srilanka economy is already in bad shape , the government will pay for all the repercussions. Time will come to eat manioc,citizens will have to rely on foreign money.

      I agree with Roy but before going international they got to get rid of their own political leaders. it does not matter whether it is Sirisena or Rajapaksa they will get into bed with who ever is in govt for their personal gain. What have these leaders done for their people or religion?

      The next thing is to appeal to the international community but in particular to Muslim countries. They are not going to get justice in Sri Lanka but they can make Sri Lanka pay a heavy price for that. Convince these countries not to hire from Sri Lanka or if they really need only to hire Muslims. Discourage Muslim staying outside the country from sending any money to Sri Lanka other than for family expenses. That too you can send it through a source other than banks. Which will keep the foreign exchange out of reach.

    The best word to describe this government now would be “ponsiyo”. Too spineless to take action on anything. Maithripala had more to say when some girl threw a bra on the Enrique stage than when saffron-robed thugs run riot. So much for our thousand year values and bullshit so called traditions.

      “”Sri Lanka/ Ceylon, once the envy of every country in asia, now its becoming a pariah state!! shame on these b..t..ds.” The British Raj kept it so while present day Lankans were the subordinates taking the orders. Things have changed at good old blighty with the social revolution of the low class hugging the immigrants coming to power and destroying the health, housing, and administration with bad logic and confidence. The recent fire at London speaks for itself and old labour are speechless with all their tenant managed administration gone into hiding- paper it over wind bags and go out and swindle so the land may industrialise once again. Lanka can’t imagine it but will kill one another till there is a balance- chaos and utopia. Even today’s China the farmers revolution after 100 years still has Japanese Korean Taiwanese innovators to help them succeed in the global market- you most europeans and lankans cannot identify between the 4 because they look alike but think different.

    The constitution of Sri Lanka states under Chapter II, Article 9, “The Republic of Sri Lanka shall give to Buddhism the foremost place and accordingly it shall be the duty of the State to protect and foster the Buddha Sasana, blah, blah, blah…

    What this means in practical terms is that Buddhists are permitted to insult other religions with impunity but if adherents of other faiths insult Buddhism then the full force of the law will be brought to bear on them and the offenders will have to face dire consequences.

      Well said estate labourer
      I can’t understand why all these anti-Gnanasara comments?
      A crusade by CT against Gnanasara and the North supported by a minority-internet possessors- of srilankans, if you talk to the majority , who experience the difficulties in their day to day life of the menace created by the muslims amongst them, do not agree with these CT crusade.

    Country has gone to the dogs. No independent judiciary, an impotent police force and a government betraying all those minority voters who voted en-bloc to bring this ‘Jadapalanaya’ into power. Simply disgusting to say the least. We all know this man Gnanasara is nothing but a well fed and groomed rowdy, wrapped up in yellow robes, called in to rile the minorities to create instability. Thus creating disturbances to the peace prevailing in the country. But no politician has the guts to take him on fearing the worst, including their own security. They would rather safeguard their own personal interests by playing politics, in order to pile on their ill gotten wealth, whilst the rest of the country can go to hell. Their only religion is money and nothing else matters. None of them sincerely love this country and want to bring peace, stability and prosperity to its people. There is no hope for minorities in this country, as it will soon become a cursed and a condemned nation due to these existing injustices. Another Myanmar in the making.

      Charles:- What has Buddhism or any other Religion, got to do with Equal Rights? Equal Rights, means that Everyone, Irrespective of their Language, Race, Religion, Beliefs, Social Status, or Caste, have the Right to Every Benefit, that Every Other Person Enjoys. It is something that has to be Inculcated in Children at a very Early Age, and should be an Important Aspect of Teacher Training. At 84 years of Age, I look back with Gratitude that We were not taught in Ceylon Schools, that Anyone was less or more Equal than another!

    “”which has raised many questions pertaining to the independence of Sri Lanka’s judiciary.”” well well i-slam humanity is a foreign religion imposed on asia by crusaders and it’s an emotion while buddhism is all about asian ethics. every day the BBC insults the outside world’s cultures in the form of satire which they say is part of culture.- europeans don’t like it but have to live with it. Even in the UK the police primarily serve their paymaster not the public. Presently at Germany muslims are not allowed top wear the burka or scarves in the mosque- its a promise the west is keeping in line with the present trends- if the country lets the media control everything then – it will never prosper and would live in constant war and fear. therefore the tweets (tweets are easily monitored by the police and action taken in the UK)

    It is with some dissappointment that I record that “Governments may Come and Governments may Go But WE the Gnanasara’s & CO go on for ever?” Why? Why? Why? Earlier Gota was accused of being part and parcel of this robed aggressor. Now we even go on to say that even MY3 is a part of it. We have to open our eyes and see who is in power that that who is not a part of this robed aggression. The answer is clear. He who comes to power must be a part of this robed aggression, namely the game. Otherwise you earn the wrath of the most powerful in the world. QED

    All these time I thought Gnanasara was just bluffing when he was saying ‘Nobody can touch him, all the Buddhist are behind him”. Now we can see he was so bold in saying so because although all the Buddhist are not behind him, these asgiriya mahanayakes whom Buddhist respect were behind him all these time. Racist Rajapakse and Champika behind him was a open secret. Is MS too have a soft heart towards him?

    Fellows like Gnasara are a disgrace. He brings disrepute and destruction to the people and the country. His conduct and utterances are no where closer to Buddhist teachings. We learnt costly lessons for nearly 30 years by continuously trampling the Tamil community. Is he and the those who are supporting him want to send this country through anarchy which would be much more worst than the Tamil/Sinhala conflict? The problem is that these extremist are like the frogs in a well. They do not know what is happening around the world and what new values and movements are needed to peacefully take this country forward in the contemporary world. They are Sinhala chauvinists. This chauvinism is mixed up with outer periphery of Buddhism which does not understand the real philosophic essence of Buddhism where there is no room for hatrasey and supremacy over others. All human beings are equal irrespective of there origin, creed, cast etc: The only way to safeguard and enrich the interest of the Sinhalese is to treat the other religions and communities as equals with love, affection, compassion and tolerance. Perhaps we should arrange a few classes for Gnanasara and those high priest issued the so call statement defending Gnanasara few days back. Please stick to real Dhamma. Nothing will go wrong.

      Edmond j,

      It is not the Sinhala chauvinists who ruined this country but the Tamil Chauvinists. From the time Sri Lanka got independence, Tamil chauvinists wanted to create problems because they lost the privileged position gained by licking the ass of British bastards. Tamils did not want equal status but they wanted more than equal status. That is the reason why they asked British to give them a separate state. British said no. Then asked for 50:50 when the Tamils were only 12%. For that too British said no. Then they pleaded British not to leave Sri Lanka. Then British said now we do not want you, we are leaving. British used Tamils to control Sinhalese but at the end fked them. That is British style of doing things.

    Yahapalana has drawn a meticulous plan to safeguard their powerbase by using Muslims as guinea pigs. Plucking 3 mangoes on one stone: 1. Distracting their failure 2 To cut the vote base of Joint opposition 3 bring international judges.
    We agree Rajapaksas should be stopped, not with our loss. Yahapalana has given green light to BBS to gain publicity propagate & entice the Singhala Buddhist vote base to their side soon he will be in media limelight already he is. Yahapalana will inflate him more .
    Wait & see BBS secretary Galagodatthe Gnanasaara will vie for presidential election, thus slicing vote base of Joint opposition candidate probably GOTABAY not Basil as Mahinda cannot contest. The contract is signed mediator Wijedasa & Champika .
    The contest for 2020 will be between SLFP (MY3) UNP (Ranil) JVP (Anura) JO (GOTA) BBS (Gananasaara) another outsider likely. Singhalese vote divided to 4.
    N/E minority vote will go to UNP few of our dishonest thambiyas will vote GOTA convinced by Ali Sabry his Attorney (GOTAS Chuch golaya now) & Azwer will not make any difference. No Tamil will vote GOTA . UNP candidate will win the race by small margin .
    Finally Ranil wickremasinghe or Sajith Premadsa (if contested) will be the winner.

    Gnanasara is a thug in robes.
    He has been bailed within the hour, after defying two arrest warrants, but the Moslem organisation office bearer has been remanded.
    This shows a judiciary biased against Muslims but afraid of this thug in robes.

    Why are the legal eagles, law professors, rich Buddhists who gained tons of ‘merit’ by erecting statues, feeding/clothing monks, weeping at the bo-trees, carrying ‘relics’, performing poojas, drinking whiskey on poya days, holding all-night pirith ceremonies, & offering daanays, silent?

    The Minister of (In)justice who visited another monk who scolded a grama sevaka in raw filth in the presence of the police, is silent.

      Champa and others that also add all good about their lovely weerawanse… will have to stop their mouthpiece.

      Wimal Buruwanse s wife is proved to be even more fradulent

      Shashi Weerawansa had applied for a National Identity Card (NIC) in 2010 as a person applying for a NIC for the first time.

      Herath giving evidence in court said Weerawansa had submitted her application for an NIC at the age of 39 as a person who never obtained one. Herath was giving evidence in connection with two cases filed against Shashi Weerawansa, the wife of National Freedom Front (NFF) Leader Wimal Weerawansa at the Magistrate’s Court Colombo yesterday.

      The CID had filed two charge sheets against Shashi Weerawansa that she had fraudulently obtained two passports including a diplomatic passport by submitting forged documents to the Department of Immigration and Emigration.

      Assistant Commissioner Indika Kumara Herath whose evidence was led by Deputy Solicitor General Dileepa Peiris told court that his department had not initiated any inquiry against Shashi Weerawansa for not obtaining a NIC even until the age of 39 which is declared as a punishable offence under the Act.

      The witness had earlier informed Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandara that an article published on Ravaya newspaper had revealed the accused had possessed two identity cards under two different numbers indicating that she was born in 1967 and 1971.

      The case was fixed for further trial on July 31. The witness is to be cross-examined on next trial date.On a previous occasion, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) filed a charge sheet against Shashi Weerawansa under two counts.

      Shashi Weerawansa was arrested on February, 2015 over the charge of obtaining diplomatic and general passports illegally. She had allegedly submitted birth certificate with forged names and dates of birth to obtain those passports. She is currently out on bail.

      Deputy Solicitor General Dileepa Peiris, Chief Inspector Jayantha and Police Constable Ganegedara of CID prosecuted. President’s Counsel Anil de Silva with Jayantha Weerasinghe PC appeared for the accused.

    At last, the courts have reflected public opinion. Singling out Rev Gnanissara while Viswalingams, Sivajilingams, Azad Sallys and Emil vander Poortens of this world are allowed to insult Buddhist culture, civilisation, religion and monks with total impunity is scandalous. These minority rabble trouser fifth columnists need to be taken to task before any Buddhist is arrested for reacting to the provocation. Things have to now come to a head.

    Can this happen in any other case in Sri Lanka unless of course it is in a Drama? In this case it is Real but a Drama alright hatched behind the scenes by the high and mighty in the so called yahapalanaya. Shame on yahapalanaya. Shame on the Judiciary

    There is a need for a mechanism by which monks like Gnanasara can be disrobed and chased out of the Sangha – such mechanisms exist in other Buddhist countries.
    This will purify the Sangha so that only those who obey the rules laid down by the Lord Buddha, especially “poverty” and “celibacy” can become monks.
    Olden day monks were pious men who obeyed these rules and were venerated by the laity including Hindus. I have seen villagers prostrating themselves in front of Buddhist monks in the deep south on village roads, to obtain their blessings.
    They visited homes for alms.

    Let me make one thing clear and many people are speaking about’ hate crime’ without really knowing what it means. I am not a lawyer and am speaking from my ‘common sense’!

    In my own personal view, there is nothing really called ‘hate crime’ when it limited to speech. Those who are somewhat fluent in English would have at least come across the idiom ‘ nothing hurts more than the truth’. Telling the truth is certainly not a crime even it hurts a lot of people.

    I will not dare to put in the local version but if a Jew go public saying “I hate Germans and they killed my entire family (during Hitlers rule)” cannot be called hate crime. It might hurt lot of people but that was the truth. That is certainly freedom of speech.

    So I will boldly what that man in robes called Gnanasara said is not ‘hate crime’. He has a right to tell what he wants. He can lies still it cannot be ‘hate crime’. If so many politicians tell damn lies in election campaign with plenty of mudslinging and personal attacks and all of them should be arrested and should be now in jail, and that includes the President Sirisena and former President Rajapakse.

    It is only their actions that make them guilty. It is only because that bugger Gnanasara took actions to destroy Muslim places of worship and instigated destruction of the livelihood and property he becomes guilty and he has committed serious crime. He certainly has to be punished. He cannot take the law into his own hands.

    If he feels Muslims had caused harm to the Buddhist or to the Sinhalese he should have complained to the police and taken action. Then police can verify whether they are fiction or rumours or the truth and if so take action. But without resorting to these proper channels he destroys Muslim shops and places of worship. It is very obvious he simply accused the Muslims without any truth just to give cover for his dastardly acts. To accuse Muslims are rapidly reproducing is not a crime. Life does not end by only reproducing their kids have to be cared for and that is a big responsibility. If so let the country pass a law limiting the size of the family! I could easily see there is pure jealousy as Muslims are skillful businessmen.
    But instead taking the correct and decent approach for any doubts and suspicions he may have of the Muslims and inform the proper authorities he went on a rampage causing serious harm and agony to the Muslims.

    The entire country is now totally exposed the way he was tackled. Minorities have lost all hope. The Government came to power with the promise to put an end to racial hatred and punish anyone guilty of it without fear or favour.. Now it has totally acted respecting fear and favour. We saw how the judges too stage managed and was a drama that was acted in courts for public consumption. judge blaming it on the police and police too not demanding the arrest of this bugger, these judges think we citizens are fools and we cannot smell a rat. Shame on judiciary and police!

    The way the senior monks behaved in supporting this crook in robes placed the entire Sinhala Buddhists to shame. Many writings of decent Sinhalese express the same. Cat when drinks milk closes its eyes thinking no one can notice him just because he cannot see. Do not forget the entire world is watching.

    The Asgiriya Chapter’s statement is deceptive. There are no hidden hands in this and it is just this BBS and the criminal Gnansara who created all this. They are now trying to white wash and place blame on someone else. I certainly will not like to have and worship a God like them. I will not want to worship criminals! Bloody shame.

    If we do not nip in the bud and looking at short term advantages we are certainly creating a long term disaster which then cannot be rectified and we slip down further in the slippery slope. We should learn lessons from our past mistakes when we fell for the long term thinking of short term advantages such as in Education and now education is now in a irrevocable mess.

    The only way of recovering is to hand back Sri Lanka for ‘colonial rule’ for at least one hundred years and we have a new generation trained by our colonial masters, otherwise our country is doomed.

    Let me warn do not test the patience of Muslims and think silence is weakness. There is always a calm before the storm and it will be far too late if things turn bad to the other side and the world will not have any sympathy and would tell you asked for it and you got it,, so you bloody well have it!
