“Gnanasara’s Bravery Comes From Gota”, Ivan Reveals “Gota’s Fascist Story”

Strong links between Sri Lanka’s Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) that recently instigated anti-Muslim violence in Southern Sri Lanka have been exposed by Ravaya – a mainstream Sinhala weekly newspaper in Sri Lanka.

The article written by the paper’s former Editor and its Chairman  – Victor Ivan titled ‘Gotabaya’s shadow’ has revealed the extent to which Gotabaya has been influencing activities of the BBS.

The piece discloses that following the deadly attacks in Aluthgama and Beruwala, the BBS had been instructed by Gotabaya to hold a press conference and clear his name off the mounting accusations that held him responsible for the attacks on Muslims. He had asked the BBS General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara – the monk infamous for his racist remarks, to disassociate Gotabaya with the organization’s activities.

Ivan thereafter has revealed a secret, which he states that only a handful of journalists were aware of until he put it in writing.

“A top intelligence official had phoned a news editor of a well- known media institution and asked for a journalist to be assigned to cover the BBS press conference. The official had not received a positive response from the news editor. Thereafter in a matter of seconds, Gota had contacted him and demanded a journalist be sent to the BBS presser,” Ivan has written.

During this media briefing, Gnanasara had repetitively highlighted that they are in no way maintaining connections with the Defense Secretary. “This was the precise moment where the proverbial cat was let out of the bag,” Ivan has written.

He has gone on to state that Gotabaya, from being the people’s hero following the end of the war against Prabhakaran and the LTTE, has now turned into a trouble-maker that has managed to create numerous crises in the country that have heavily impacted Sri Lanka’s progress.

“He (Gotabaya) has not only nurtured extremist forces but has also continued to protect them – BBS is the perfect example of this plight. Gnanasara’s bravery is more a case of his close association with Gotabaya than it being a sheer trait,” Ivan writes.

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has also been blamed for the present predicament as he has pointed out it is Mahinda’s attitude of allowing Gotabaya to continue as he pleases, that has led to Gotabaya being able to exert a superior power that does not fall under the scrutiny of any authority.

The writer has highlighted the fact that although Gotabaya might be having aspirations of surpassing his brother (Mahinda) in politics soon enough, his continuous tendency to analyze political developments though a military angle has pushed him to inadvertently dig the graves of not simply his brothers but also the government’s political future as a whole.

Furthermore, he has also heavily criticized Gotabaya’s promotion of extra-judicial killings, describing them as a ‘fascist act’ as well as the rapid militarization of every single aspect of the country including education, which Ivan has described as Gota’s ‘ single biggest political blunder’.

    Oh My Gosh Victor I,
    Great Guts. But be prepared for repercussions like visits by white vans and anti response from state authorities. Awaiting your next action of self inflicting harm.
    Best wishes to Stay well and safe.

      Dear Victor- Yes, let’s call a Spade, a spade.

      “Strong links between Sri Lanka’s Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) that recently instigated anti-Muslim violence in Southern Sri Lanka have been exposed by Ravaya – a mainstream Sinhala weekly newspaper in Sri Lanka.”

      The information on the ground supports that.

      Is this Sinhalese Buddhism?

      Do you believe in lies?

      If so here is a better lie. The lies and Imaginations of Para-Monk Mahanama.

      Did Buddha fly to “Adams Peak” Mountain?

      Do you know that you are a Para from South India?

      Check your DNA . It will confirm your para-origins.

          Who cares about respecting others religious sentiments any more? The country has gone to the dogs. What do you have to say about Gandassara’s hate mongering and racial slurs on us Muslims, not withstanding the looting, arson attacks and property damage to our homes and business places. We will never forgive Gandassara and his goons and will keep reminding ourselves that this Rajapakse government too backed him to do this dirty work. We are not in peace with ourselves any more until we get revenge. We are not terrorists, but now your people push us against the wall, and very soon Muslim terrorism will be born in this country. Then we will take the fight to the enemy. We are not cowards for bowing our heads and bearing all the insults and pain inflict on us now. Retribution is around the corner.

    3 thugs does not equal a mob. If any one innocent or not is attacked then the rule of law should be applied regardless of their stature, race or creed. Strong leadership from the highest level should be applied to uphold the law until then regardless who you are, a Buddhist priests, innocent by standers, a village thug or a watcher of a farm, no one gets justice. It then becomes lawless and ends up with a bigger mess. We cant implement such basic tenants but are boasting 2500 years of civilization. You can not blame anyone who lost their lives or got their homes and lively hoods destroyed for the incident with the priests vehicle? None of them had anything to do with nor were they anywhere near. Their only affiliation to it was that they belonged to the same religion. If that’s the logic we apply then we will never be able to live in Sri Lanka. Are we going to fight amongst us after wards since even amongst the Sinhala population we have different views, practices and beliefs? What on earth are you smoking Jay? THINK!

    What nonsense is this Jay talking. In journalism
    if there is no proof, one does not write an
    article like that. It could end up in courts. So
    don’t come out with lame excuses to defend a poor
    case. More strength to you elbow, Victor. Great
    work. We need more people of your ilk.

    Gamini has squeaked like a small
    mouse in a den. He does not contest
    what I said.

    But this Yankee Doodle Do says
    Ranil has told Armitage about Gothabaya.

    Ha ha!!! what a damn joke. Armitage was
    nobody when Gota became the defence and
    offence boss.

    Of course Ranil will complain to Armitage
    but not to the people of this country. Isn’t
    that so, Gamini. He wants the others to do
    the job for him.

    Stop this tomfoolery.

    Prasanjith Manawaduge – You have
    missed an important point in your
    comments about poor Gamini.

    He is talking about Ranil Wickremasinghe
    telling Richard Armitage about Gothabaya
    Rajapaksa. That is like a small kid
    complaining to his Grand Father that the
    younger brother stole his toffee.

    Why cannot the gutless Leader of the Opposition
    speak out publicly? The types of Gamini are
    defending eunuchs who cannot sit on an Armitage
    Shanks leave alone speaking to armitage. All
    they are capable is enjoy the benefits of
    office – Land Cruiser Prados, foreign travels
    and now Maharaja’s interviews on TV.

    Join the band Gamini.

    Gota et al, is the manifestation of our our own notion of Buddhism, An exclusive Sinhala Buddhism, that doesn’t allow anyone else to live in peace. Just as Saturn does, it devours it’s own children.

    Events will run it’s full course, as Hitlers Germany and Kampuchea did.

    Talking without any facts, that is how Dr Victor Ivan had been join JVP in similar manner in 1967.Needlees to say that many TOP leadres of JVPs are political agents of State or working for state Secret agents.
    But not that the rank and file members of JVP are innocent
    Wasattaha Dissanayake and Bola Samara are most prominent agents of police JVP 1968 to 1976.

    Do not believe this Ravaya [Edited out] a well known opportunist. He was wining and dining with Rajapakshe regime until recently. [Edited out]. This idiot will not get any white van ride because his critics are limited to his Pattara Kadamaalla that no one reads. His critics are published with a clear understanding with the regime.
