“The Governor uttering lies about History of Sri Lanka , promote Hate against Buddhists and Bodu Bala Sena while creating Fear among Ordinary Muslims.” (sic) says the Bodu Bala Sena.
Referring to our story BBS To Destroy Kuragala Islam Religious Site – Alavi Mowlana Asked MR To Intervene the BBS today issued a statement. We publish below the statement in full;
“Pls refer to following International News Site where The Governor uttering lies about History of Sri Lanka , promote Hate against Buddhists and Bodu Bala Sena while creating Fear among Ordinary Muslims. ” (sic)
“BBS states that This is completely wrong information. BBS never had any plans to destroy anything in Kuragala. We all fought to protect historical and archaeological site of Kuragala. We are surprized to see how a responsible person like Hon Governor writing a such letter giving false information. This will tarnish the image of Bodu bala Sena and create unnecessary fear among ordinary Muslims. As a responsible person with his office using public funds he should have checked the authenticity of this information before giving so much publicity to false information. He could have easily checked the validity of this information from our office located very close to his office before making such statements.” (sic)
