Monk Led Mob Threatens And Calls For The Arrest Of Woman Wearing Saree Bearing Buddha’s Face

A woman allegedly wearing a saree with prints of lord Buddha’s face was confronted by a mob led by a monk in Trincomalee yesterday. A video going viral shows two women with a child in the Trincomalee but stand comes under threat and was late taken into custody and later released according to reports.

The monk, when the woman confronted tries to explain in Tamil, threatens her to be quiet.

“You talk too much. Just shut up. You try to argue after wearing the offensive saree. If it was a man I would have thrashed him on the floor but since you are a woman I will not do such a thing,” the monk threatens.

The monk is then seen instructing the police officer who is present at the incident that they should arrest the woman and then produced before courts.

The video shared on social media shows the woman baffled as to the offence she has committed and further seeks forgiveness from the monk who says that no one can do as they please as this is a Sinhala Buddhist country and that he cannot just ignore such incidents.

In May this year another woman was arrested for wearing a Kaftan which was claimed to have the design of a Dharmachakra but was of a ship’s wheel.

The Supreme Court of Sri Lanka considering a Fundamental Rights petition of Naomi Michelle Coleman, who was arrested and deported for having a tattoo of the Buddha on her arm, held that her arrest and deportation amounted to a violation of her Fundamental rights.

The woman in this recent incident had been taken to the Trincomalee police station and then later released after changing her clothes. According to sources, she was taken to the police ‘for her own safety’. (By Anuththara Singgapuli)

    There is video evidence of the racist Buddhist Sinhalese thug priest not only threatening this poor Tamil women but racially abusing her and threatening physical violence and a few of the spectators taking this Buddhist goons side and the policeman ,looking at everything meekly instead of telling this Buddhist priest thug to shut up and arrest him and his supporters. Who the hell is he to talk about India? Lord Buddha the founder of Buddhist is Indian. so is Arahat Mahinda and many of the important priests of the Mahavihara were all Indians and Tamils . Even the Sinhalese are from India, mostly from what is modern Tamil Nadu and Kerala and the some from Bengal/Odissha , so what the hell is this ignorant Sinhalese Buddhist thug masquerading as a priest/monk attacking India and Indian , when everything about this country is Indian , including the language he speaks and the robes he wears. Kavi or Saffron that is sacred to Hindu and this includes the Bo tree. The Sinhalese language is a mixture of Tamil . Pali/Prakrit and Sanskrit. All these are Indian languages. What the hell is this thug screaming about. Sinhalese Buddhist country , when did it become Sinhalese and Buddhist. Trincomallee and the east is not Sinhalese Buddhist land. This is the ancestral land of the Eelam Tamils and the also now the homeland of the Tamil Muslims of the east and Sinhalese are outsiders and who the hell is he to come to a historic Tamil speaking area and threaten Tamil women wearing a saree with some remote resemblance to Lord Buddha’s image and threaten her and humiliate her publicly . Where are the human and religious rights of Tamils, Tamil Muslims and Sinhalese Christians? This priest and his supporters have to be arrested and charged, as well as the policeman who stood by and watched the fun .

      Where are the human and religious rights of Tamils, Tamil Muslims and Sinhalese Christians? This priest and his supporters have to be arrested and charged, as well as the policeman who stood by and watched the fun . The officers in the police station where this woman was taken and humiliated and made to change her clothes , should also be disciplined and this video should be sent to the UN. This is why we need Tamil and Tamil Muslim police officers in the north and east, so that the population there will not be humiliated, abused and threatened by outside Southern Sinhalese Buddhist racist thugs with impunity. Sinhalese Buddhist land in Tamil Trincomallee. ! There should be a law brought against these human rights abused being tolerated by the authorities and the Sinhalese police in the name of Buddhism. Now anything remotely connected to Buddhism . in the mind of some Sinhalese racist. becomes an offence. What if it was a Sinhalese woman who was wearing this saree.

      Siva Shankaran Sharma,

      This is called Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”, that is championed by Para -monks, who were recruited as 7-year old children, to be childish monks, when they should be getting parental and sibling love, childhood and playmates, but instead getting the senior monk treatment in the temple, because their parents “donated” the children to the temple, because they were not the brightest, or could not affirmed to feed them and maintain them, or better than sending to reform school or “Madama”.

      So the child monks, Samanaras, grow up f@@@@@ up in their a@@@@ for years, and become adult monks losing their ability to think, being civilized and not even knowing what what Buddhism is and it’s Philosophy.

      All they know is Para-Sinhala Racism as described in the lies and imaginations of Mahawamsa, that is imbibed from a vey young age to the monks and the Para-Sinhala populace, mean IQ 79, who believe in multiple myths. This is is not restricted to the villagers, but also extends to the politicians and even to many “Academics” who produced plays based on Myths, like Sinhalbahu, by the late “Prof.” Sarathchandra, and even anthropology “Prof “, Raj Somadeva, who seem to have very little clue as to human migrations, modern human genetics and molecular genetics, and trying to “connect “ the Native Veddah Archeology, to Para-Sinhala, and claim that Both the Native Veddah Aethho and Para-Sinhala are natives in the land.

      Many low mean IQ 79, Para-Sinhala, with low intellect are believing that, just the same way way, the Catholics believed that the Earth is Station and the Sun went around the Earth.

      Galileo claimed that the Earth moves, just like Copernicus, and was punished by the Church, not for wearing a saree or cloak that appeared to contain the image of Buddha , or a ratio of Buddha on his arm.

        There are people in this forum working as assassins of culture and heritage (Sanskruti Ghathakayo) of Native Sinhala Buddhists that run into thousands of years. There is a well-planned attempt to do this by some organizations and these ‘Sanskruti Ghathakayo’ are doing the donkey work for them. Their job is to:
        • Break the bond prevailing between Sinhalayo and Temple by tarnishing the image of Monks.
        • Insult and humiliate Monks as people who abuse ‘Samanera’ monks.
        • Insult Buddhists as ‘Para-Buddhists’ although there is nothing called ‘Para-Buddhists’
        • Brand Sinhalayo as racists
        • Brand Sinhalayo as Facists
        • Brand Sinhalayo as Bigots
        • Brand Sinhalayo as violent race who harm people belonging to other ethnic groups and other religions.
        • Insult Tooth Relic as a Canine tooth
        • Sabotage Dalada Perahera by highlighting elephants are illtreated.
        • Condemn Mahawansha which gives an account of the heritage of Sinhalayo going back to about 2500 years as mythology because Demalu who are the descendants of slaves brought to this country as slaves by Portuguese, Dutch and British do not have such a document.
        • Condemn Sinhalayo as people with ‘Mahawamsa Mindset’
        • Keep on repeating Sinhalayo are ‘Para’ (foreign) people who came to Sinhale from India which is a blatant lie. By depicting Sinhalayo as ‘Para’, these guys are trying to tell the international community that both Sinhalayo and Demalu are ‘Para’ (Foreign) and hence Demalu are entitled to have a piece of land for themselves
        • Condemn archeologists who come out with scientific evidences that support Sinhalayo evolved in this country

          Eagle Eye,

          Sounds like the complaints of the Catholic Church in the 16th to 19th centuries, where they cursed the Protestants, the Astronomers the Scientists, and the Philosophers because the TRUTH was exposed, and many were punished by the Inquisition.

          Sinhala Buddhism is NOT Buddhism. Just compare with Mahayana Buddhism and Zen Buddhism, and even Theraveda Buddhism outside the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

          Original Article | Published: 07 November 2013

          Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations

          https://www.nature.com/articles/jhg2013112

          MtDNA haplogroup analysis revealed that several West Eurasian haplogroups as well as Indian-specific mtDNA clades were found amongst the Sri Lankan populations. Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

          Sinhala, Tamils, and Muslims are Paras, in the Land of Native Veddfah Aethho.

          Only low IQ idiots, mean IQ 79, cannot comprehend it because of their brain washings. When will the Age of Reason and Enlightenment arrive for them? .

            Do not believe anything Amanasiri says based on DNA Data. This guy is telling lies. The researchers of the article he is referring do not say Sinhalayo came from India. Their conclusion is:
            “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
            These researchers also say:
            “The haplotypes and analysis of molecular variance revealed that Vedda people’s mitochondrial sequences are more related to the Sinhalese than the Indian Tamils’ sequences.”
            But Amanasiri does not talk about this. According to this conclusion Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo are relatives because both groups evolved in this country.

            Ancient Greeks and the Catholic Church believed that sun goes round the earth. When Corpernicus said that the earth is spinning on its own axis the Ancient Greeks and Catholic Church condemned Corpernicus.
            Amanasiri is behaving like Ancient Greeks and Catholic Church. When I presented scientific evidences from Archeologists he condemned them saying that they are not scientists.
            What I can do is to tell the truth to the donk*y but I cannot force donk*y to accept the truth.

              Eagle Eye,

              You certainly do have a comprehension problem. Perhaps, it is related to IQ and critical thinking skills, like those of the Wahhabis.

              You are mixing up the cultural associations. My-DNA is different. It is in the human body. It comes from the mother, maternal line. It is different. Different studies have shown that Veddah Haplo groups are primarily N and it’s subgroups, where as for the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, it is primarily M.

              Indeed it is hard to educate ignorants who can’t comprehend, especially Para-Sinhala ignorants, with mean IQ 79.

              Just read up on History of Ceylon by Prof K M De Silva, Oxford University Press.

              He also says that the Sinhala are Paras.

                Correction ;

                My-DNA should read mt-DNA, mitochondrial DNA, that comes from the maternal line.

                The archeologists you refer to are not scientists, because they do not use the scientific method. You may call them pseudo-scientists, and that is good enough for the low IQ Paras.

                If they used the scientific methodology, it becomes clear from the mt-DNA data and the historical data, that the Sinhala are Para-Sinhala.

              Eagle Eye
              What Amarasiri is saying is absolutely correct, he is calling the Sinhalese as Para because he must have definitely read the Mahavamsa which says the Indian Vijay and his men came here in a boat and created the Sinhala race. He must have also fully studied and analyzed all the DNA/Genetic tests done on the Sri Lankan population. The Sinhalese are immigrants and their ancestry is in India. Only the Veddas are the original natives of Sri Lanka who descend from the pre-historic people of Sri Lanka.

              The most erudite Archeologist Dr. Deraniyagala tested the DNA/genetics of all the remains of pre-historic mankind in Sri Lanka (including the Balangoda man). It was found that the Veddahs have a little admixture with the pre-historic mankind in Sri Lanka whereas the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims have zero admixture with the pre-historic mankind in Sri Lanka indicating very clearly that the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims are immigrants to Sri Lanka.

          Your own Mahawansha says very clearly that Sinhala came from India.
          The Pali Chronicles very clearly states that about two thousand five hundred years ago, Vijay and his 700 men (thugs) who came from India attacked, killed and chased away the aboriginal tribes into the jungle (Veddah Aethho), they did not mix with the local tribes, instead brought brides from Pandiya kingdom, they took Pandya (Tamil) wives from South India to form the Sinhala race.
          That is why the Tamils call you Paradesi Chingala.

        It is ironoc how the ignorance and stupidity of the Sinhala Biddhists is being exposed for all to see.
        Gautama Siddhartha was an Indian prince. All important places connected to the Buddha are in Indian.
        The so-called Sinhalese are of Indian descent. Most kings who ruled Sri Lankan were Tamil.

    Why should this silly woman apollogise to that fc.k. thug monk who does not know who buddha is or what buddhsim is? These are the morons who have brought disrepute to Buddhsim though they call this unique religion as Sinhala Budhism. She should have removed her saree and three at that thug monk and the guy would have walked away happily. It would have been a memento for him.What a pathetic state of affair. Dont these aimless morons have nothing else to do other than checking on peoples dresses and panties and amudeys. What a low grade idiots are they. First how do they even know that it was Buddha’s face and has anyone seen him? As long as there are sinhala budhist modayas there in SL the country will simply rot. No hope at all. Do they call it a religion? Soon there will be law for buddhist monks power to examine anyone’s underwear as to whether buddhas face is hiding underneath. They must ensure both inner and outer garments of people, especially women’s, to ensure no face is hidden underneath. These guys have made religion is huge joke. Idiots, religion and faith are all in your heart and behaviour and not on ones underwear. Do all the evil things under the sun and now chasing after sarees, what a joke and what a disgrace.

      Do not blame the woman , she in an elderly Tamil peasant woman , travelling by herself or with another elderly Tamil female. who was intimated by a Sinhalese Buddhist racist thug calling himself a Buddhist monk and other Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists , with the police standing idly and watching the fun and supporting these Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists . No one came to her help . The public and the police who should have maintained law and order and not openly sided with this Sinhalese thug. He comes to a Tamil area and then shouts at this Tamil woman not to speak in Tamil, as he cannot understand , who the hell is he. It is he who is the foreigner and not this woman . They are all swaggering in Tamil areas and ruling the roost, due the occupying racist Sinhalese armed forces and a Sinhalese police force , who will always support them. They know that they can get away with this type of behaviour and even all Sinhalese led governments support this.

    what you say is very right. There is no point for any sane person to bother about some of these disgusting, disgraceful, disorientated absolute morons who have no idea as to what they are doing. All what they are doing is they are destroying Buddhsim and make more and more to hate Buddha and Buddhism and worst these evil, illiterate, ignorant, stupid monks who were born on very bad planetary position and discarded by parents. They were simply discarded and got rid of even by parents. These idiots do not represent the rest of the Sinhala Buddhists but the irony is that this tiny minority will destroy not only Buddhism in SL but the entire country as a whole. What a shame. Cant anyone with logic, commonsense and concern come out in the open and stop this most primitive and most barbaric behaviour. No law and order at all and the country is in the hands of a few rabid idiots.

      What you say about a sane person’s response should rightly be about the disgusting morons is correct, but where are those supposed Sinhalese Buddhist people who consider themselves to be good politicians and leaders of their people doing about such bigoted monks?
      They are keeping quite because they know how
      their ignorant voting constituents would react if such bigoted monks are condemned by them.
      That’s the pathetic karmic bind they are tied up in.
      In SL bigoted politics pays dividends.
      That is why former President JRJ said “if Tamils are starved the Sinhalese are happy”.
      That is how things will be in SL for ever if you are not a Sinhala Buddhist.

    I am sick of this type of flippant attitudes of some people and the malicious comments above, against Buddhism and Lord Buddha.
    Why don’t they print sarees with the OM sign?
    Why no sarees are printed with Jesus’s face?
    Why no sarees are printed with Allah’s face?
    Why no sarees are printed with pictures of the Noble Quran?
    Why no sarees are printed with pictures of the Holy Bible?
    Why only Lord Buddha’s face is used for sarees, blouses, tatoos, bras and bars?
    Why, because Sinhalese Buddhists are TOO tolerant, TOO patient and TOO equanimous, so every Dick, Tom and Harry offend Buddhism.
    Sri Lanka is a Sinhalese Buddhist country. There should be tough laws preventing imports of any clothing with Lord Buddha’s face. Tourists should also be told not to wear such clothes and if they have tattoos of Lord Buddha’s face, they should be kindly requested to cover them during their stay in Sri Lanka and all those who refuse to comply, should be deported
    I am telling this again and again and again.
    The next President should be a true Sinhalese Buddhist who is determined to revive Buddhism and its practices in Sri Lanka in its truest form.

      Idiotic this is a print of Indian dancers and rock /temple paintings and have nothing to do with Lord Budda or any other lord. Only Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and racists like you deliberately, look for remote resemblance of Lord Budda on all these printed sarees worn my Tamil and Muslim women and other non Sinhalese people like western tourists , just to act and behave superior , as all of you suffer from a huge inferiority complex. Sri Lanka is not a Buddhist country and if it was it was only confined to the south centre and western parts and never in the north , east or the north western coast.. These lands have always been Tamil Hindu. So how dare this Sinhalese Buddhist thug now enter the land of the Tamils be they be Hindu, Christian or Muslim and say this is Buddhist Sinhalese land and start humiliating women and others in the name of Indian Lord Budda. What a clown Lord Budda is Indian and this clown priests ancestors , like all Sinhalese arrived from India and he is seen berating India and Indian people. For that matter that print looks very similar to Hindu deities and not to Lord Budda but you do not see Tamil Brahmin priests or other Hindus running around asking women to remove these saris in the name of Hinduism.

        Oh yeah, “remote resemblance of Lord Buddha,” hey?
        Why do they wear sarees and various attires with even “remote resemblance of Lord Buddha,” if not to demean Buddhism?
        How about the Tamil lawyer in Jaffna who wore a saree with Lord Buddha’s face printed on, in September last year?
        I would say, Sri Lanka should totally ban imports of “Kalamkari” sarees from India.
        Answer my question.
        If my protest to Lord Buddha’s face printed sarees is a display of “a huge inferiority complex,” why don’t I see any sarees with OM sign printed on? Why don’t I see any sarees with Jesus’s or Mother Mary’s or Allah’s face printed on?
        Buddhism is the only religion in the world which is discredited and defamed by people of other religions.
        There are Buddha sarees, Buddha bars, Buddha restaurants, Buddha spas, Buddha bras and Buddha candles all over the world.
        In Sri Lanka, Sinhalese Buddhists, who are the majority, have no religious freedom.
        Lord Buddha, Buddhism, Maha Sangha and Buddhist devotees are under constant malicious attack by people of other religions.
        Buddhists are labeled as fascists and racists while only Christians, Muslims and Hindus are considered as religious people.
        “The UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Beliefs” should pay serious attention to this grave injustice to Buddhists.
        I am telling this for the 100th time.
        In order to overcome this primarily, and also various other numerous injustices to Buddhists in Sri Lanka as well as all over the world, a Buddhist Chakravarti type character should be elected as the next President who could demand the world to respect Buddhism and stop demeaning it.

          People in other Asian nations have their preference of a Buddha too.

            This is very true. This is a free country and this saree is freely available in the market. Christian, Hindu, Muslim and any known faith have souvenirs freely available.
            The monk in question is wearing a highly respected garment. The wearer of this robe is also a teacher of his faith. There was no need for him to create a public scene and behave in a manner that was total disregard to the woman’s modesty and a disgrace to Buddhism

          Oh dear, is that what Lord Buddha did, demand that people follow his teachings? did he send his disciples to threaten others and force their principals on people? No, he thought a religion based on PEACE, peace within oneself and peace towards others and most importantly he led through example leaving others to follow him out of choice. There is no such religion as Sinhala Buddhist, Sri Lankan’s practice Theravada Buddhism, and if this beautiful philosophy was practiced properly this country would really be a paradise. But unfortunately not even most of the Buddhist clergy follow the correct principals, that is what needs to be corrected before they go shouting at others. Buddhism is not based on frivolous material things.

      None, tattoos on arms, pictures on sarees of the image of Buddha come close.

    This is not a Buddhist monk but a rowdy in robe who is totally ignorant of real Buddhism. There is no law in Sri Lanka which says wearing an image of Buddha is illegal. We should not remain as silent observers to anti-Buddhist acts committed by such rogue monks/hora ganayas/cheevaradharis who are hijacking Buddhism and disrupting the peace in the country in the name of protecting Buddhism. It is not these women who are insulting/demeaning Buddha/Buddhism but this kind of rowdies in robes (thugs calling themselves monks). The monk says he would have dash them on the ground if not for women, these women should have slapped the monk with their slippers for being ignorant of Buddhism. The problem in Sri Lanka is the saffron robe is highly respected by the society. Any mother’s son, a bastard, a rouge, a rowdy, a criminal or whatever the person is, the moment he raps himself with a saffron robe, he turns into a God and Sri Lankans respect him by falling on his feet. Why are the authorities allowing these monks to take the law into their hands? Are we turning into a Buddhist Taliban society?

          Actually Sri Lanka produces many educated people. Many more than Pakistan, Bangladesh, Phillipines, Nepal, Maldives, etc. Sri Lanka is even more competitive than certain states in India. I recommend you watch Pervez Hoodbhoy (MIT-educated PhD physicist) on Youtube, he explains in detail how backwards Pakistan is, thanks to radical Islam. Thanks to Buddhism, Sri Lanka is one of the most liberal countries in the region. Religion has never been an obstacle to development in Sri Lanka. The only obstacle so far has been Tamil Tiger terrorism which ruined the economy and made educated people flee the island.

    Chompa, if tourists come with Buddha’s tattoo then have a plastic surgery unit at KIA to remove the skin portion and do a graft. And they can charge for the procedure and thus our income from tourism will multiply. In addition to free visa this is another trick to make money and also to safeguard Buddhism in all its form. By the way as someone said, no leather footwear and instead rubber or plastic. And monks to be armed to enforce law and order and protect Buddhism. But to protect Buddhism in its true form what are you going to do with the “Sinhala Buddhists” who are drinking alcohol 24×7 and eating beef and abusing drugs beside other sins.

      Nathan,
      When Buddhist Bhikkus are requested to attend “Dhanay” – a meal – to remember the passing away of a family member, they send a list of foods they expect to be served, and this always includes choice meat dishes.
      They are thus non-vegetarians.
      Therefore footwear not made of animal skin makes no difference.

        In that aspect ,after all all isn’t Buddhism an off spring of Hinduism?
        Why bother asking if Buddha was vegetarian when he too was born of flesh and blood and his relics are now venerated while his message to his followers and the world at large is ignored?

    Justice, we cannot blame Buddha. He never ever imagined that he would be humiliated like this in the land of Veddas and Nagas and Yakkas. It is unfortunate that Asoka sent his teachings to Lanka and sadly taken over by barbarians. The monks menu at Dhaka includes beef, Thora maalu fried, mendis special, gold leaf cigarette, and wattalapam. They eat the wattalapang and attack the Muslims. These guys live on the blood and sweat of the poor. But real Buddhists run to Hindu kovils. Politicians run to Thirupathy and Guruvayur. One can see the state of utmost confusion. Until they eradicate these monks there is no chance for Poor Lanka. Ask Ramanayake about these goons.

      Yes they run to Kuruvayoor and Thirupathi , two ancient Tamil Hindu temples that were built by Tamil kings, when these lands were part of the Tamil country., one now in Malayalam land and the other just over the border in Telugu land but aid and abet Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists to break destroy and convert ancient Saivite Tamil temples to Buddhist Viharas , with fake concocted history produced by the so called department of Archeology , that is full of Sinhalese Buddhist racists. No wonder these creatures are running amok in the north and east , as they have the support of the general Sinhalese population ( ironically largely descended from immigrant Indian Tamil low castes but brainwashed to think they are Aryans) , the politicians and occupying Sinhalese armed forces and police.

    Maybe this saffron robe wearer has an original photo of the Buddha to identify the Buddha. Buddha’s images or paintings were made long after his Parinirvana. That is why we see different facial features in statues made by different countries. It is just a symbol. This woman is wearing a Kalamkari saree which is an Indian art form. This saffron robe wearer is not suitable to call as a Buddhist priest. He has no idea of the fundamental basics of what Buddha taught. Having said that, it is not a bad idea to refrain from wearing provocative outfits to any community, out of respect and to avoid unnecessary commotions.

    Today, Sri Lanka has become a strong hold of Buddhist aggression and terror and such acts are spurred by hardline Buddhist bhikkhus against the minorities.

    What Ranjan Ramanakaye said is true, no other religions have a system of child ordination other than Buddhism and therefore the possibility of abuse of children confined to Buddhist monasteries cannot be avoided. These children who are given away to the Buddhist temples at an early age are too young to understand the religion or child abuse or the intimacyual molestation they face. This could partly explain the antisocial behavior they show when they grow-up and come in contact with society. They have been deprived the love and affection of parents and loved ones, not really exposed to the good and bad of the society and they find it difficult to fit in.

      What utter NONSENSE, Eagle Eye!
      Koti Diaspora! Anti-Buddhist NGOs! Muslim traders! – they’re all in it together, to upset the Buddhists of Sri Lanka! With over 500 million Buddhists in the world this gang of three have targeted SBs! I would have thought there were greater pickings, elsewhere – China, perhaps. Maybe Buddhists all over the world are yet to learn that an image that may be discerned in the convoluted adornment of some woman’s dress, is actually a sly and deliberate insult to their religion..
      I wonder how many Buddhists in this country feel as you do about this incident, Eagle Eye, are happy to witness such intolerant, threatening and aggressive behaviour from one walking in the footsteps of the Great Compassionate One.
      Have you even seen a close-up of the offending image? Could it be just the figment of the monk’s mind? We don’t know. But you seem to.
      What disturbs me in this video is that an innocent – yes, I say she is innocent – woman is suddenly stopped on the street and reviled, intimidated and accused unjustly by a monk, one whose behaviour should be so very different. And that she is surrounded by men who also seem to be antagonistic to her. And, finally, that a stupid policeman is idly standing by while this tirade goes on, instead of dispersing the crowd, reasoning with the monk, and quietly advising the woman to go home.
      I am sure that some of those who have posted comments critical of this monk’s behaviour are Buddhist, but I am really frightened by the mindless, intolerance of Buddhists like you, Eagle Eye, and your low expectation of one who is supposed to be following the Noble Eightfold Path.

    Each and every religion is a cover for all illicit activities ‘mostly’ for all faiths in Sri Lanka is a well established fact…….or mostly used for oppression that I know of where grew up.

    In the UK if a member of the white majority racially abuses a minority member, he will be arrested and jailed. Or at the very least get fired from his job and will have a black mark on his resume which can ruin his future.
    Whereas in Sri Lanka members of the majority can say and do anything they want and get away with it. A couple of years ago that sumanarathna thero of batticaloa was caught on video (it was shown here on CT) threatening to kill a tamil gramasevaka and also threatened to wipe out muslims and tamils from the island. And guess what? Not only is he walking free, he has Sinhalese celebrities like Lasith Malinga and Iraj Weeraratne publicly showing their support to him and encouraging people to send that ‘monk’ donations.

    They are worse than Buddhist fanatics. Buddhism was gifted to Sri Lanka to follow Buddha’s teachings. I think these Buddhist monks and even the Police do not know about Buddhism. Lord Buddha said anger was his worst enemy. Great Buddhist leader Dalai Lama said love and kind is his religion. Swami Vivekananda described Lord Buddha as a great master, but the Buddhist monks at Anuradhapura threw stones at him when he delivering a speech. This is Sri Lanka – a country filled with mad people. No wonder some mad politicians may also join these mad monks.

      Anagarika Dharmapala’s speech presentation and personality did not have the same impact compared with that of Swami Vivekananda’s personality and speech presentation which had a higher impact and influence had on those present at the event.
      The stone throwing incident at Swami Vivekananda’s entourage to the North via Anuradhapura was a sequel to that.

        Agreed. Moreover, the image that is shown in those sarees are that of Maha Veera Jayanthi, manufactured in the State of Andhra. These Buddhist monks and even the Police are clowns and making the people also as clowns. This is Sri Lanka.

    Blind Eagle, a bird whispers that you are wearing an amudey with the same design. But no one will dare to inspect that even that Thug Monk wont have the courage to lift your sarama! By the way how is HLD pappa getting on? Pappa no…mama no…

      Please note that the likes of Blind eagle, HLD, KAmsalam, Champa etc are messed up from within.
      They maybe on someone’s payroll too.
      So making money from their deranged minds is a bonus.

    The saffron robe has become a cover to propagate impunity. You can pull off any savage deed in it.
    Any scumbag can put on a yellow robe a piss on minorities at any time on the basis of defending buddhism.
    There is no one to call these rabid dogs to order, that is how much buddhism has been bastardized to in this country.
    They have become political hitmen too.
    It was that bastard Mara and his gang that perverted buddhist monks to this state.
    Now there is no turning back.

    This rabid, racist monk insults this woman and tells her to get out of SL and go to India and then insults the Indians. as if they are low scum, While the Sri Lanka Tourist Board spends millions of dollars appealing to Indians to vist Sri Lanka as they are always welcome here (for the revenue SL needs so badly).
    I think the SL Tourist Board SHOULD FIRST RUN THEIR ADVERTISEMENTS IN ALL THE TEMPLES.

      Mrs.Almeida, I do not know whether you are a Buddhist. Your name implies to Portuguese origins and Christians. You can be a Christian, which is a religion and still be a disciple of the Buddhism which a philosophy. I am a Muslim and I am also a disciple of Buddhism.
      In this instance, the intention of the wearer is to cover her modesty and if the design is offensive then there is a better way to demonstrate it instead of gathering a crowd of racists to insult the woman in full veiw of the public with a policeman to along with who is an observer without taking any action on the behavior.of the monk.to whom, it appears , that he is above the law. The wearer of the saree has not insulted Buddhism, it ts the monks’ behaviour tht is very demeaning, offensive and appalling.. As a dedicated disciple and teacher of Buddhism he went as low as dirt by his behaviour. This monk has openly committed a punishable offence but will get away with it and become a hero of the great philosophy like the BBS chief.
      It can also be understood that this monk was playing to the gallery for attention and in Sinhalese Buiddhist country such actions are very highly regarded.

      Mrs.Almeida,
      Didn’t you know the difference between Lord Buddha and Maha Vaeera Jayanthi. The image that is shown in those sarees are that of Maha Veera Jayanthi, manufactured in the State of Andhra. Very sad to observe that you belong to those mad fanatic group.

      This well fed Monk has insulted Buddhism more than this lady, through his foul mouth akin to a cesspit. Who in the world can claim to have actually seen the face of Lord Buddha to prove that this is his face printed on this ladies saree. In China, statues of Buddha look Chinese, in Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and in India and Sri Lanka, they all look so very different. It is a foolish argument to say it is an insult to Buddhism and Lord Buddha’s teachings, when there is nothing consistent about his image for anyone to accept as standard. That is why in Islam, there are no images nor statues of any of the prophets, starting from the first Prophet Adam, to the final Prophet Muhammed (Sal.), and everyone in-between. It is also banned by religion to have or even draw or create one that could depict them. Furthermore, what is important is not to worship their image believing it represents them, but rather, to follow closely in their footsteps and teachings, to become better people to one another, as decent human beings. That is what should be our ultimate achievement. Then, and only then, we will have served our religious leaders well, and in return, they will be proud to own us, as those of their flock.

    Somebody is faking, putting comments in my name.

    I applaud the Buddhist monk, the woman ought not have worn a saree printed with Buddha image. Shame on her.

      In Hindu religion Buddha is known as Sakya Muni. The title name Buddha only used for Siva, in Hinduism. But Buddha is treated as Krishna’s Avatar. So he is more important to Vaishnava than Saivite. Anyway, the saris printed in India only depicting Jains prophet Mahavira. Buddha is no longer prayed there
      Buddha, Mahavira and Mahavir Jayanti all have same shapes of statues. Some Japanese Buddha statues have completely different shape. https://pinshape.com/items/50980-3d-printed-smiling-buddha-original-japanese-ivory-figurine-miniature. They could probably represent the real North Indian Buddha as the Lankawe Buddha is only a Greek statue, not really representing any Indian character.
      This confusion is just similar to this guy who is telling somebody else too using his name. But I did not see anybody recently writing under the name of Real Siva Sankaran Sharma. I came to know REAL when he replied to a comment of mine to a well-known, Old King supporting Sinhalese guys who have been using his pseudonym Siva Sankaran Sharma. I had addressed to that Sinhala Guy as Namboodiri. REAL said that guy was not real Namboodiri but it was he who is the real Namboodiri. There after REAL used add “Real” to his name and other guy, as usual, have been calling him as plain Siva Sankaran Sharma. But after the loss of Old King some of his acolytes quit. OTC, Siva Sankaran Sharma like the ones were the people stopped to coming to CT. OTC showed up when Old King was in the Coup and left again when the court reversed the coup. But Siva Sankaran Sharma never came after Old King lost. So REAL cut short his name and recently has been using his as Siva Sankaran Sharma. Now this new Unreal Siva Sankaran Sharma is claiming that somebody is stealing his name.

      Yes I have a very strong suspicion on who you really are , you used to post in the former now defunct Sri Lankan forum. You are either that nasty Sinhalese man from London or that mad half Malay/ Moor Punk , who lives in Canada. You obtained refugee status in Canada claiming to be a displaced Jaffna Muslim , when in reality your parents lived in Borella and were vegetable vendors . They were responsible for many anti Tamil activities . You have been very busy posting many anti Tamil messages, pro Sinhalese lies and propaganda on various forums , newspapers and magazines , local and international under my identity. Like the Economist. National Geographic, various Indian dailies. Even here for some time

    Buddhism as taught by the Buddha, is now popular in USA.
    Henry Steel Olcott was first convert to Buddhism.

      Justice,

      The mean IQ of USA is 99.
      So, they can under the teachings and philosophy of Buddhism.

      The mean IQ of the Land of Native Veddah Aethho Illegally occupied by the Paras , Para-Sinhala, is 79. They don’t understand Buddhism. What they have us a cult called Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhism, where the idiotic populace prostrates to imbecile Monks.
      In the USA they don’t do that unless they are Para-Sinhala expatriates.

    RSSS, have you ever seen or met Buddha. How do you know it was Buddha. Some Buddha’s are bald headed, some with curly negroid hair and some are plump and baby faced and some with pottu on forehead, so how do you know it is Buddha. Please leave that man alone. You guys have already killed him so why worry now. Now you guys are left behind with the yellow robed monsters and soon they will form the Appe Anduwa, so be patient. Keep your ladies safely under your bed. By the way Lester, you must worship VP instead of these monsters to attain nirvana. Learn some integrity, honesty, dedication from him. Better go to his Olympic pool and take a holy dip to rid of your sins. Hope you don’t get drowned. Anyway it was built by the army and funded by Mr Tsunami. Chompa, these Buddha sarees are presented by Maithiri when he visited Yaalpanam to beg for votes. These poor chaps are so confused and mixed up wit myths and lies don’t know what is happening. Be watchful Lord Muruga and Ganesha and Thirupathiyan watching you guys.

    I’ve seen expensive underwear printed with a face of meditating yogi. The store owner said that it was specially designed for aspiring yoga students.

    I’m wondering should some charities supply cheap version of this piece of therapy wear to violent monks and their supporters?
