‘Maithripala Sirisena Slept On My Bed’ Says Sujeewa Senasinghe’s Brother Namal

Namal Senasinghe, the elder brother of Deputy Minister Sujeewa Senasinghe has claimed that President Maithripala Sirisena has slept on his bed.

Senasinghe, who shot to limelight today after he abused a diner, Shaminda Herat at a star class restaurant over the weekend said in response to the video uploaded by Herat, “What this idiot did not know was Maithripala Sirisena used my Kandy house for his campaign. He slept on my bed.” According to Senasinghe, Herat had been bragging about Sirisena.

Namal Senasinghe, a doctor by profession also went on to further criticize the minorities in the country by trying to justify his comments where he told Herat that he (Senasinghe) was a Sinhala Buddhist and Sri Lanka was a Sinhala Buddhist nation, in spite of Senasinghe himself living in England for some 20 years. It is believed Senasinghe had assumed Herat was a Muslim as he was sporting a beard.

“The people who are criticizing this are from a certain community, and they cannot swallow the fact that this is a Sinhala Buddhist country. Wake up. These guys cannot enter the west now. So swallow the pride and live in harmony in Sri Lanka,” Senasinghe said in response to the video after members of the public including Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils took to social media to protest against Senasinghe’s racist utterance. In particular Muslims took on Senasinghe, which resulted in him continuing to carry out his tirade against the community.

However, just hours after making various comments on Herat’s post, including where he even went on to claim that Herat was a criminal, Senasinghe appeared to have deleted his comments.

Colombo Telegraph is in possession of print screens of Senasinghe’s comments. Senasinghe’s Facebook profile was deactivated and his response which was initially available on his official website was also deleted.NamalNamal Senasinghe

      This man should be warned about the issue.

      Govt should take actions against any one that make public statments with racial contents. If Germany, Italy and other countries and their law and order could bring the kind of men to silence, why not us the srilanken.

      In Germany pointing finger at someone or even attack someone verbally can get him caught easiy.. what they called ANZEIGE… that will then called the met person to a call hearing. There high punishment could be the case if the mans thought would not provide his innocien.

      I wish people to follow the kind of rules then only the buggers such as SEnasinghes or the other will ever become normal.

    So this doctor is what is referred to a a racist pig.If he was discriminated in the UK what right has he to pull the race card here .It clearly shows that he is racist.Racism has its roots in family background.This miserable man has to come for a racist background to instantly equate a beard with a particular community.The question is does he deserve to be doctor with such a demented mentality?Is his brother fit to be an MP let alone a deputy minister?

      There’s a racist In a country’s leader !
      There’s a racist in a judge !
      There’s a racist in a lawyer and a racist in a monk and
      a racist in everybody in Srilanka . This man exhibits
      many other things along with his TOP CLASS RACISM
      holding a BRTISH citizenship that definitely needs to
      be reported to British medical council by Muslims and
      Tamils for their own safety because this man could be
      their GP in UK . Other minorities in UK needs to be
      alerted as well. What he proves more is that a donkey
      will never be a horse simply because of a change of
      its residence to a higher plane. A civilised medical
      doctor in the west knows his limits whereas a typical
      Srilankan counterpart prides himself as a supernatural
      godly figure.Why more , people are just obsessively
      swollen in pride for any minute thing that others don’t
      have. It is high time that all come together to detest
      this CULTURE of vulture .

    I heard in UK laws are very turf against racial discrimination it seems.

    You may knows him 10 yrs but you havnt seen him with in few sec how he react in free land.

    UK is multiculturalism where as sl you have the certoin surnames then the animal blood with guding Gunarasa’s religion.

    Tell your buddy to build 5star prison for baby brother’s mate.

    And make him as sl head of GMOA.and give the police and law to Gota’s blessed BRB along with soorawansa and sajin and country will prosperus.

      Racism on display in the video is not in harmony with ethical guidelines of the medical council in the UK.

      Despicable opinions and behaviour of this arrogant prick is a convicning reason for him to be suspended from the medical council in the UK, I believe.

      It is all so well documented. The guy was caught with his pants down.

      Cheers!

    Namal Senasinghe firstly we think you are a idiot who has a loose toungue, what makes you think it’s a feather in the cap just because MS slept on your bed…who cares. Just because you call your self a Doctor does not mean you are an anourable man….your behaviour proved that you are low bred and a disgrace to the people of our country. Just get back to England and live like an immigrant. We don’t need pig headed people like you in our country

    There is a general perception that professionals are educated. Namal Senasinghe has a medical degree but shows his illiteracy here. Racists are illiterate. He claims to be a Buddhist but he does not know the basic precepts of Buddhism – these characters damage the reputation of Lankan Buddhism.

    The man claims that Maithripala slept in his bed. Does this entitle impunity to his brother?

    British NHS must be informed of the bigotry of this man.

      Pillai ,
      Do you think all those who claim belonging to a religion,
      do believe in them ? CLEAN LIARS ! HYPOCRITES !CHEATS !
      You are absolutely right on ” British NHS must be
      informed of this bigotry man.” ROGUE DOCTORS MUST BE
      EXPOSD . I Saw his deputy minister brother bragging of
      his upbringing over and over again in many of his TV
      debates and interviews until I was fed up watching him .
      This is Srilanka and this is what they are dying for
      and mind you , they will lose anything to achieve this.
      Many politicians sell their properties simply to gain
      access to become a man of fame ! Truly a dangerous trend
      to ignore . I know a few of them who went bust being
      politicians . The core issue is falsely believing in a
      religion that is not active or working to preventing modern
      social maladies partly due to its own inefficiency .

    Sirisena had slept in this racist, arrogant guys house while campaigning for election. This shows how Sirisena is cleverly hiding his own racist feelings. If he is an impartial President he should issue a statement condemning his racist friend.

    THIS RUDE AND RACIST STATEMENT BY SENASINGHE SHOWS HIS CONFIDENCE ABOUT THE SUPPORT HE HAS FROM THE PRESENT SRILANKAN GOVERNMENT AND ITS LEADERS. THIS ALSO REFLECTS THE HATRED THAT MUSLIMS HAVE TO PUT UP WITH, IN THIS COUNTRY.

    I have been approached several times by perfect strangers with a ‘salam alaykum ‘ or asked ‘are you a Muslim ?’ . Have always responded saying ‘I am Sri Lankan ‘. If the Doctor wants to announce that he is a Sinhala Buddhist , that is his prerogative .However his behaviour overall, leaves much to be desired , and is certainly not in keeping of what is expected of a Trinitian .

    Shame on you Doctor Senasinhge (I feel shame even to call you a doctor) and you bragging that you are living in England more than 20 years (whereas I was born in England) and that a shame too that you are still not fitting to a wonderful multicultural society like mother England.

    Your racist mindset shows your actual face when you are angry and that was exactly happened that day. Let the guy be a criminal or whatever and never mind, you lost your cool but how the bloody hell you can play a race card????

    I have already written to NHS and you are not fit to practice in England or even in Sri Lanka…… Either you can go to North Korea or you could have played a crucial role in Rajapakse racist regime!!!
    OR why not join BBS and become a spokesperson???

    You lost your values, your family pride and your brother’s political career! You even cast doubts on Sujeewa’s credibility of promoting ethnic harmony among communities.
    Once again- SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

      what truth. The whole island never belonged to the Sinhalese. Only the west south and central parts. The north east and the north west coast had always been Tamil. Just because the British amalgamated the Sinhalese and Tamils parts of the island in 1833 to created a new colony called Ceylon and made the Eelam Tamil nation that was then a 100% majority in the north and east a minority in the whole island and the Sinhalese who were confined to the south a majority in the whole island , does not make the entire island yours.

      Sri Lanka south may be Sinhalese and Buddhist but Eelam is Tamil and Hindu. England is the land of the English not Britain. Britain is the land of the English Scottish and Welsh got it. Your claim to the whole of the island as Sinhalese is as ludicrous as this.

    Dear Dr. Serasinghe,

    You need to remember that the present government came into power on the back of a minority votes for your brother to become a minister and be able to use his name to instil fear in this chap. Yet, you play the racist card to prove your might.

    Firstly, you are a foreigner in this country, as you have given up your citizenship and gained a British Citizenship. If you truly, want to give something back to your so called motherland, please surrender your British Passport and take up a SL Passport. You will then realise the frustrations the youth and citizens of this country have to face. because successive governments have bent us over for a ride.

    However, if you play this racist card we don’t need people like you. Because of people who have acted similarly and made such racist decisions this country has gone back a few decades. We are at a time of reconciliation and rebuilding and don’t need your fuel to spark this extinguished flame.

    You say you are an educated person, if so you should have better known to not to engage in such a manner. Don’t you think violence and anger in any form, under any pretext whatsoever, is absolutely against the teaching of the Buddha? Wouldn’t it have been better if you probably engaged this “so called criminal youth” in a more positive manner, giving this guy hope for a second chance in life. I am sure a doctor such yourself will understand my point.

    Please concentrate on your good karma!

    His specialty is in pain, he causes pain to many in order to alleviate it from a few to make a living out of it. Only we are in pain to understand how he could treat patients with this kind of attitude.

    He seems to be a character who struggles to distinguish between fictions and facts,and combined with a politician brother, he is prepared to trash anyone including the president. Arrival back to serve his motherland,…hmm I guess motherland will better off without him, his ego would be under control if he has been left in the UK because no one bothers even if he did some wonders, in SL, he lets unleash his ego to the detrimental of the ordinary folks. Danger.

    It is people such as this that give “the sinhala race and buddhism a bad name.He has every right to feel offended if a remark was made – but the Englishmans way of settling disputes is totally different to his; thats the difference.

    I do not want to get into the middle of a controversy with emotion.

    We all know that in any British colony, they used their own flag for each of the colonies. The top left quadrant is the Union Jack. The usual background is Blue. In then British-Ceylon the rest of the flag consisted of the elephant and the Dagoba (Buddhist shrine). In that context, did even the Britisher recognize this as a Buddhist Land? Over to you dear readers to give your own interpretation to a fact.

    What is important is ethnic and religious harmony in any given country. Even in UK where Christianity in the form of Church of England is part of the state, if there is no ethnic or religious harmony it cannot prosper. There would always be some disorder. Same is true for Sri Lanka. What we should promote and nurture is mutual self respect of all our countrymen irrespective of its rich diversity. Have not a 30 years of war full of bomb-blasts awakened our senses of reality? We must be a set of proud Sri Lankans.

    Just heard that Prez Sirisena left for UK…May be he will be sleeping in his bed tonight. This guy is a “balu doshtharayek”. This is what has happened to Sri Lanka. All these so called “educated” fellows with fake certificates brag to high haven. I see this in every walks of daily life. I put this guy in the “Empty vessels make the most noise” binder.

    Dear Namal and Sujeewa,

    In a a span of a few days you’ll have seen the wrath of people from all communities, mainly the Sinhala Buddhist community disapproving your dispicable racial behaviour. I want to remind you that this is a multi ethnic country where true Sri Lankan spirit is the majority.

    GMC does not handle racial comments as it is a criminal act
    English law say

    In England and Wales the Public Order Act 1986 prohibits, by its Part 3, expressions of racial hatred, which is defined as hatred against a group of persons by reason of the group’s colour, race, nationality (including citizenship) or ethnic or national origins. Section 18 of the Act says:

    A person who uses threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or displays any written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting, is guilty of an offence if—

    (a) he intends thereby to stir up racial hatred, or
    (b) having regard to all the circumstances racial hatred is likely to be stirred up thereby.
    Offences under Part 3 carry a maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment or a fine or both

    If someone told you when you were a kid figs were full of dead insects and you thought they were pulling your leg, they were not , they were dead right and you were wrong. Indeed, figs do contain digested wasps, which become trapped inside the fruit during pollination. Without this gross and deadly cycle, neither the fig tree nor the wasp could reproduce.

    So is man he has the good and evil mixed in him , time after time the evil surfaces and many would regret over it and from it they would learn to nature the goodness in them to nourish their souls & to become better men,you have have to accept him as he is , we are all the same- you, me and everyone else , like the fig .

    What is most important is ,if any man errors and then become full of remorse and sincerely regrets his error and pleads for forgiveness , then it should be accepted from him with compassion and also should be forgotten and move on.

    Remember we are walking on earth , nothing is perfect here and no one is perfect , not Sujeewa’s Brother ,nor you ,me or anyone.

    Please don’t try to gain political mileage over this common brawl, this probably happens more frequently everyday. although we may not know as it may be happening among none political affiliated persons.

    What is more disgusting is to see some dragging Sujeewa into this. who has nothing to do with the whole issue , that is infact downright cheap politics.

    Can we move on ???????and Please leave Sujeewa out , be fair even towards someone you consider an enemy . atleast try to be a fair human ,if you can not be a good one.

    DUDLEY congaregulations for the superb investigative work.Racists like this buggier Namal should be exposed and reported to the UK medical authorities before they do any more damage to the good name of the Sinhalese community in the UK to show that this low class man does not in any way reflect negatively on us.His brother Sugeeva is a absolute racist and I know this for a fact from my time at Trinity College.Hope the voters kick the fellow out at the next election.Upto now Sujeeva has not said one word condemning his brother and what does that prove?Both are racists.
