Gota Has Direct Involvement With The BBS – Nimalka Tells UNHRC

“It is shocking to note that the Government, which was able to deploy the armed forces against the unarmed villagers to safeguard the interest of a corporate entity during the Rathupaswala incident, did not take any emergency measure to protect the Muslims with the same sense of urgency. The recently established special police unit aimed to deal with religious clashes is only a cosmetic measure to appease the international community.” one of the IMADR staff member said on behalf of its president, Dr Nimalka Fernando today.

The International Movement Against All Forms Of Discrimination And Racism, said in its oral submission to the 26th session of the Human Rights Council said; “BBS has carried out attacks against mosques and business establishments of Muslims and intensified its campaign against other religious communities including Christians. Government high officials, especially the Defence Secretary, have been directly involved in supporting the BBS through participating in their public events.”

We publish below her submission in full;

Thank you Mr. President,

We strongly condemn the violence unleashed in South Western Sri Lanka which resulted in the death of 3 persons and the serious injury of approximately 80 people. It is outrageous that the Government of Sri Lanka ignored our appeals over the past year and allowed the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) to continue to operate committing hate crimes against Muslims and Christians. In her report to the Council last March, The High Commissioner referred to the emergence of religious extremism and urged the Government to take measures against hate speech and such intolerance. Unfortunately, some member States dismissed our calls by categorising these incidents as sporadic violence.

IMADR, together with other civil society organisations, have consistently taken the position that the failure of the Government to facilitate an environment towards reconciliation and lasting peace based on the LLRC recommendations would lead to intensified tensions again. We have called the Government to take actions against the BBS and promulgate laws to deal with their hate speech and violent activities. BBS has carried out attacks against mosques and business establishments of Muslims and intensified its campaign against other religious communities including Christians. Government high officials, especially the Defence Secretary, have been directly involved in supporting the BBS through participating in their public events.

It is shocking to note that the Government, which was able to deploy the armed forces against the unarmed villagers to safeguard the interest of a corporate entity during the Rathupaswala incident, did not take any emergency measure to protect the Muslims with the same sense of urgency. The recently established special police unit aimed to deal with religious clashes is only a cosmetic measure to appease the international community.

We insist that the Government of Sri Lanka investigates the heinous acts immediately and adopt measures to prevent the repetition of such violence. We call upon the international community to support the human rights defenders in Sri Lanka who are working against religious extremism and assisting victims to achieve justice. We also believe that this is an opportunity for all the Council member States to ensure the effective implementation of the resolution on “Promoting reconciliation, accountability and human rights in Sri Lanka” (A/HRC/25/L.1/Rev.1).

Thank you Mr. President.

    Hope not that Dr. Fenando would END UP with the same destiny as the wijith thero. Her partner would not do anything because his eunach nature – i mean Vasudewa will have no guts as we were known from a previous article published on the CT. Everything is possible today in this country… they call it peaceful.. but we all feel horrible.. Gota and his brother dont no mercy. No respect to the women either. Recalling the manner Gota attacked former Sunday leader Editor who left the country for a seeking a threat free place to proceed her life, was attacked as no other would do.
    Anyway, this is what happened, the social scum are voted into power.

      Well, Gota fooled evry one very well except the International community.

      True story.

      He is using BBS for cover up. Gota jointly with Parkistan and China training Parkistan terroist to attack India. Very soon he will be arrested by FBI.

      MR and Gota are in huge messs and they don’t know what they are doing.

        You must have confused something here. FBI can’t do anything because it’s working within the US. It’s like a police force with a mandate to work in all the states. But the CIA on the other hand do work on missions abroad. As they have done in the past and continue to do at this very moment. :D

          Thats not entirely right. Whilst, the FBIs remit is domestic it can and does act internationally when acting on its domestic remit. Being a US citizen and given the on going domestic investigations into Gota it is perfectly plausible that the FBI too is involved. Further, the CIA is not a law enforcement agency, its an intelligence agency, however they certainly do cooperate with law enforcement agencies around the world. So Gota is probably on both the CIA and the FBI’s agenda. :D

      Nimalka is the queen of double games and double speak!

      How come her partner, the dead Leftist Vasusdeva Nanayakkara who is so-called Minister for National Languages and SOCIAL INTEGRATION is so silent during all the mayhem and attacks on minorities?

      Why is Nimalka paid to go to UNHRC and talk about BBS while Vasu her partners is in bed with Rajapaksa and is paid to NOT do or say anything about the attacks on minorities.

      Vasu was supposed to pass a Bill on the Prevention of Incitement to Racial and Religious Hatred one year ago and has not done so?

        “Why is Nimalka paid to go to UNHRC and talk about BBS while Vasu her partners is in bed with Rajapaksa and is paid to NOT do or say anything about the attacks on minorities.”

        Did you pay Nimalka to go to UNHRC ? or did tax payers pay her to go UNHRC ? don’t you understand the difference between Nimalka’s role and Vasudewa’s role ? Vasudewa has been VASIDEWA , so there is nothing to talk about that opportunistic creature any more , but why brought Nimalka in to that low level ,Pl remember Nimalka has a strong back borne which many of us cowards lacking to have.

          Nimalka gets big bucks from a Japanese NGO – IMADR – to waltz around the world and talk about Human Rights in Sri Lanka! Meanwhile, at home she is in bed with the Rajapakse regime’s Minister of Social Disintegration – Vasu the clown – and gets protection from the regime.
          She is one hell of a number!

          SHe has conned the Japanese NGO IMADAR for years and has being milking it as the Executive Director in Sri Lanka — singing for her supper in Geneva and making money by day and dinning with the Rajapaksa regime by night..

          Nimalka is a disgrace to the Human Rights community – in collusion with the Rajapaksa regime – just like the Mahanayakas who are paid off by Rajapaksa..

        Madam Nimalka Fernando should be the next Presidential opposition common candidate.

        She has more strong Backbone than whe whole lot Parliament “Pinguttarayas” Leeches whose sole aim is to live on Taxpayer “Pin Padi” Free lunch.

        Even yesterday one UNP PS member crossed into Government side.Rajapakses throwing taxpayer money like gallows to lure opposition party members to his side.

        There is no other visible development in Sri Lanka other than Politicians making mega Billions. Vasidewa is no different eating Rajapakse left over bones at this old age and Ranil is happily sleeping as the UNP leader.

    Bravo Dr. Nimalka Fernando. Hats off to you.

    Indeed Gota has direct connections. Not only connections, he is the man behind of every event so far carried out by the BBS. Gota is a terrorist. A murderer. An uneducated ruthless maniac suffering from a phobia. Of course Ghanasara should be arrested but the main culprit is Gota who master minded the Aluthgama unrest. Gnanasara is his dog, waiting to attack anyone at its master’s command.

    There is overwhelming pressure in every level within and out side the country. Mara cannot escape that easily.

    BBS is Para-Sinhala, in the Land of Native Vedda.

    They are South Indians, and checking their DNA will confirm that.

    They are liars, and racists. Do not follow the teachings of Buddha.

    They are the curse of Lanka, the Land of native Vedda.

      JimSofty,

      You should know that Gota brought down a swiss poodle to satisfy his wife’s urge. So she is happy now. No worries to Gota the scumbug.
      Gota is a born lunatic and a coward. He is scared to face UNHRC inspectors when Gen.SF says he is willing to face them anytime anywhere. Who is the real hero and who is the coward.

      Gota the coward has only his Buffalo Solja force and the underworld thug force Rakna Lanka security force that he uses to murder innocent people and hide behind them. Without them he is a goat.

      Gota the coward cannot even face the UNHRC counsil members. Why? What’s the matter. Is this what you mean a brave and courageous soldier who wrote a book called Gota’s war. Where are the white flags which are missing in his book. He should write about “Gota’s Poodle”

      My Bitch Lassie has more guts to protect our family than this Coward Gota who run away from UNHRC inspectors betraying our soldiers.Why don’t he face them? What difficulty he has? Gota the Run away Bride.

      Can you ask Gota to show his Man hood by facing UNHRC. I challenge the coward will hide in a shit pit if UNHRC comes to Sri Lanka. Remember saddham Husain. No better with Gota.
      Dr.Nimalka Fernando has more guts and courage than this Pig eating shit Gota. I challange if Gota to show his courage by facing UNHRC.

      Remember how he ran to USA for 14 years when Gen.SF war running the LTTE war single handadly. These are our real heros. Not the Hambanthota water buffalos.

      Don’t talk bloddy BS in this column you As..s Hol..e. Learn to understand who the real Gota the coward and the poodle is.
      His brothers are no better. All are fake cowards, crooks, alibabas, looters and liars.

      Yes ask Gota to show his “Eva Balawa” brave courage by facing UNHRC inspectors.
      I bet he will shit in his pants. Call Gen.Sarath Fonseka our real war hero and see the difference.

      Jim the Softy,
      Please don’t shit in you pants along with the Pig eating shit Gota.

    Indications are that the Goat of the government, who commits crimes, and abusing his position as Defense Secretary, is complicit in these crimes against minorities. Dr. Nimalka Fernando is absolutely right, if these brothers truly wanted to halt these vicious hate crimes, it would have been done long time ago.
    Dr. Fernando better take care of herself, the rajapaksa’s like the BBS can be vicious and vindictive.
    They got rid of Lasantha and others who stood up to them.
    Gota is either incompetent as the Defence Secretary, or he is one of the devious agents supporting BBS dogs.

      Gota is the biggest coward in Sri Lanka’s history.

      He ran to USA for 14 years during the war and came only after his
      brother won Presidential elections to get the lucrative Defense Secretary post with mega commissions on arms purchase including Mig deal.

      Gota the coward only knows to use his white vans, thug army and fake BBS thugs to intimidate people. He cannot face them direct face to face.

      Gota the coward even cannot face UNHRC inspectors. Gota the pain in the butt only could chase crows and eat pig shit and prefer to hide in a shit hole than facing UNHRC inspectors.

      What a shame the so called Defense secretary who wrote “Gotta’s War” now hiding in a lavatory pit to dodge UN inspectors. When will he learn to be a MAN.

      Gotta. Please keep writing shit and hide behind poodles and hide in shit pits than facing UNHRC face to face like Gen.SF the real war hero. You and your fuc..g BBS is same. They are all cowards.

      Gota can reply to this comment if he is a MAN. I challenge he is not.

    After the defeat of LTTE many innocent Tamils were shot down in broad day light without any reason. Many people were abducted in white vans and tortured, raped or extra judicially executed. Many journalists were attacked or killed. Innocent Tamils including babies were killed in May 2009. None of the victims were done justice because the top man at MoD guarantees impunity to the criminals and other accomplices.

    There is no rule of law and the head of the judiciary himself is a confessed liar. The ethnic minorities, Tamils and Muslims can only seek help from the international community to curb the excesses of the unruly government.

      “There is no rule of law and the head of the judiciary himself is a confessed liar. The ethnic minorities, Tamils and Muslims can only seek help from the international community to curb the excesses of the unruly government.”

      Yes, this should be one of the approaches.

      The other approaches are to expose the culprits, the terrorist, both locally and internationally ,so that they become the targets of those who oppose, the terrorist activities of Gota and BBS and other terrorists.

      locally, they need to be exposed and marked as terrorists., and warned they are now targets.

      Well Zainab, the reason that Gota is targeting Muslims is simple. He hopes that the Muslims become militant and then Sri Lanka can ask for global support to fight a new ‘war on terror’ this time against the Muslims. That is the only hope he has of not going to jail, for once Sri Lanka is back on the right side of the ‘war on terror’ he hope the international community will lay off him on the war crimes.

    Thank you Dr. Nimalka for bringing onto focus this burning issue to this forum. I hope some relief to our citizenry will come out of this. We like to see some action on the ground. World condemnation, warning action, threat of passing of another resolution, something, that will put fear into their hearts to stop this nonsense. If not, these goons will mount another attack soon. The bitterness, hurt and anger for revenge is now palpable and we need to hear something to diffuse this tension.

    This thing is arranged by Gota because of the UNHRC inquiry. With this they are showing they can’t control everyone and SL is not very stable. If the west imposes sanctions then we can gaurantee the safety of the minorities and west will be responsible. This has been staged.

    Hats off Dr. Nimalka, well said so…but there is a serious underground activities by BBS and Gota…Gota is the leader of BBS..he is a racist and power hunger..his plan….???? he will use BBS to destroy his brother President Rajapakse who trust Gota..why? he wants to be the ruler of Sri Lanka not by election but by overpowering thru a coup in Sri Lanka. Gota will never become a President by election votes..people know who he is..he wants to run Sri Lanka as a dictator with army power. only he can achieve this by using BBS and when there is communal riots all over the country similar to 1983 Gota will take over the country with his Military staff like what been happening in Thailand now..so BBS will be the front to do all dirty tricks and finally when Gota get the control he will kill BBS and the President whom trusted him this is the reality behind BBS…

    Dr, Nimalka well done…also I like to mention that by attacking the Muslims, Tamils and Christians by BBS which the whole world know the motive of Rjapakse govt will bring them down sooner than the President expect. Once the Sinhala racist terrorist will lay the hands on Muslims…the Muslim countries in the world will not support Sri Lanka government in any issue specially in UN which the gove was begging from the Islamic countries before the UN passed the resolution last month. When they attach the Tamils India will take serious action against Rjapakse govt and even will send Indian troops to protect the Tamils.. When the Racist Sinhal BBS will attack Christians..USA, UK will come to their rescue so we can expext Sri Lanka like Ira or Libya now..only solution..destroy BBS or Rajapakse regime will be destroyed

    With out getting hysterical lets asses what Galaboda Gnanissara there said. Muslims have leaders, Tamils have Leaders but the sinhalese have no leaders. The Sinhalese do have grievances , the enchroachment of government land land by muslim minister which was distributed to the muslims, Extrimists violent muslim movements which even modi complained about and gradual pauperisation of the sinhala people by a corrupt government that pretends to be Sinhala leaders. This extremism is funded by corruption, Injustice and a leader who wishes to continue in power at any cost by pandering to the injustices of the minority ministers. These extremists movements can only be addressed by social justice and fair play. This government and the previous governments are to be blamed. The extremism and hippocracy of the govt must be addressed.

    Gotha is the God Father of BBS. He funded and supplied weapons and training to Gnasara in STF training camp. Gnasara got a 9mm automatic pistol with him all the time.

    It looks like the reign of terror by Rajapakse Thugs has finally reached the road. I have reliably been informed that Mr.Modi has finally decided to dethrone King Mahintha. India has total jurisdiction over Sri Lanka and therefore has a number of tools at her disposal to achieve this.
