Muslims Appreciate Dalai Lama’s Comment On Sri Lankan And Burmese Buddhist Criminals

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has hailed the statement issued by Dalai Lama that called upon extremist and violent Buddhist organizations in Sri Lanka and Myanmar to refrain from resorting to violence against Muslims.

MCSL had appreciated Dalai Lama’s comment in which he had stated, “I urge the Buddhists in these countries to imagine an image of Buddha before they commit such a crime,” while adding his words should be the starting point of a collaborated effort by all communities to ‘practice their true religion and strive towards understanding and peace’.

The MCSL Vice President Hilmy Ahamed in his statement had also thanked the majority of Buddhists including parliamentarians, religious leaders and other citizens who supported the Muslims during the anti-Muslim clashes that erupted in Southern Sri Lanka, by saving their lives and protecting their property.

However, Dalai Lama’s comments were not received so well by every faction in Sri Lanka; Buddhist monk Elle Gunawansa had criticized Dalai Lama’s words and it was quoted by in the daily English newspaper, Daily Mirror.

      UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISION: Charge the BODU BALA SENA,(BBS) Its Leader GNANASARA Thero for GENOCIDE

      http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/UN_HUMAN_RIGHTS_COMMISION_Charge_the_BODU_BALA_SENABBS_Its_Leader_GNANASARA_Thero_for_GENOCIDE/?copy

      Why this is important to me To STOP further GENOCIDE in Sri Lanka against its peaceful Muslim community similar to the Genocide unleased against them on 15th of June 2014, in southern Sri Lanka. 90% of the people of Sri Lanka are AGAINST this racist violence but NO ACTION is taken by the Government which indirectly supports this groups racist actions and agenda.

        Amarasiri,

        Its crystal clear based on what happen on the ground that this terrorist Gnanasara needs to be put in record for his terrorist activities.

        We cant we think of coming with a dossier with strong justification in public platform to prove this man is terrorist and needs to be punished.

        Even I would recommend to CT to publish such a dossier.

      First of all, Srilanka never been a pure Buddhist Country. And it will never be one. The influence of Buddhism in politics has lead this country in to a living hell. When you check the human rights record of Srilanka you will understand that we are not practicing Buddhism in the pure form. Now Srilanka is one of the dangerous places on Earth to live. As a person born and brought up in this country, I am ashamed to be called a Srilankan.
      How can a practicing Buddhist justify the massacre of more than 150,000 civilians as “Humanitarian rescue mission” ?. We all watched and encouraged the genocide happened in front of our eyes. We celebrate the destruction of one of our co-communities. We kept lying to the outside World that we are carrying out a war with zero civilian casualties and at one point we started believing our own lies. And we still call ourselves, Buddhists ??
      How can a Buddhist monk justify the killings of innocents Muslims under the name of saving Buddhism ? How can we call ourselves Buddhist when we burn down Mosques and houses of innocents ?
      If we can do all these atrocities to our own countrymen and still call ourselves Buddhists, then we have all the reasons to be ashamed of .

    Why this US Lama does not concern about his own people. Why he doesn’t concern Bangaladesh Buddhist. He know nothing about head or tail the story just make comments. When LTTE killied buddhist monks and bomb the Dalada Maligava where was This Lama.

      The Dalai Lama knows what real Buddhism is unlike monks and certain people in Sri Lanka, who call themselves Buddhists and don’t practice actual teaching of Lord Buddha.
      @Suresh I hope you are not one that labels yourself as a Buddhist, because if you are you have just demonstrated this point and made a fool of yourself!

      Your crimes against the two lots isn’t so diminutive in the eyes of the world, so you Sinhalas crying like fools over LTTE cruelty doesn’t match the atrocities you committed over them in the glimpse of the all knowing eye.

      “When LTTE killied buddhist monks and bomb the Dalada Maligava where was This Lama.”

      May be he could see into the future and saw these Monks will turn out to be Terrorists and criminals. If so, his silence was correct.

      What a visionary. to see into the Future!

      Hypocrisy at its best. Further evidence of the decline of Buddhism in Sri Lanka. If only these so called ‘saviors and heros of Buddhism’ observe at least the Pansil which is tantamount to becoming a Buddhist. All of which Gnanasara’s warped fascist ideology and his disciples like this half baked fool Suresh have broken during the recent riots in Aluthgama, Beruwela and Dharga town. Pansil consists of undertaking abstinence from;

      1) injuring or killing any living thing (panatipata veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – killed 4 people and injured 80+
      2) theft or taking that which is not given (adinnadana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – Looted and stole lorry loads with state sponsorship
      3) immoral sensual enjoyment (kamesu michchhachara veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – Listen and enjoyed pervasive speech filled with twisted sexual innuendo
      4) false speech or lying (musavada veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) –
      Lies upon lies upon lies that most people who know cant even believe that you can say so many lies and get away with it in this day and age
      5) intoxication as tending to becloud and weaken the mind (sura-meraya-majja-pamada-tthana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami). –
      Listen to MP Thewarapperuma who has sworn in parliament that the intoxicated rioters included even robed monks

      Why are we Buddhists silent and not asking Gnanasara as well and his sponsors including the Govt why they have allowed the Pansil be publicly flouted in the name of Buddhism? Aren’t we all hypocrites who are aiding abetting the decline of Buddhism ?

      The Biggest enemy of Buddhism is the ignorant Sinhala-Buddhists, whose ignorance leads them to intolerance, whose actions destroy the true image of Buddha and his Dhamma, and when other people look at them they think that Buddhism is what they are.

      The LTTE killied buddhist monks and bomb the Dalada Maligava but the Rajapakshe regime is totally destroying the Buddha Dhamma by replacing it with a Barbaric Buddhism, a Buddhism of hatred and violence.

      @Suresh,

      “When LTTE killed Buddhist monks and bomb the Dalada Maligava where was This Lama”

      You are absolutely correct Mr. Suresh. Pillayan, Person who commanded killing Buddhist monks at Aranthalawa is now Presidential Adviser. Karuna Amman, Person who commanded to Bomb Dalada Maligawa is now serving our Motherland as Dy. Minister and Dy. Secretory of SLFP.

      Also Suresh now a days even Top Pure Sinhala Buddhists, (Madamulana Nanasara Nikaya) doesn’t have much concern about Dalada Maligawa as Sons of Sri Rohana Manaranjana, Raja Wansa Vibhushana 3 Sinhaladeeshawara, Sadarmadveepa Chakrawarthi organizing Night car Races despite repeated requests from Chief Prelates not to have Night Car Races in Kandy.

      I am sure Suresh you have enough qualifications to be a Presidential Adviser.

    I am sure Ven. Dalai Lama has no idea about pure Sinhala Nanasara Buddhism in Sri Lanka. Probably Galagoda Gandasara will change Ven. Dalai Lama’s name as Mohd. Dalai Lama as he changed Watarake Vijitha’s name as Mohd. Wataraka Vijitha.

    “The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has hailed the statement issued by Dalai Lama that called upon extremist and violent Buddhist organizations in Sri Lanka and Myanmar to refrain from resorting to violence against Muslims.’

    Invite him to teach BUDDHISM to Sinhala “Buddhist” Monks and Laymen, especially the so-called Mahanayakas and the Upasakas and Upasika Ammas.

    Also get them to lecture to the Sinhala “buddhist” Polititians.

      Philosophical, theological discussions and bringing them to grass root peoples minds are far from Sri Lankan Academic culture.

      As we know for sure pure Buddhism encourage co-existence of mankind with purity of hearts and minds I think, Muslims and Christians too can think of sponsoring to resources like Dalai Lama to visit Sri Lanka and witness the diversity of Buddhism and isolate the terrorists labeling themselves as protectors of Buddhism and betray Buddhism.

      Amarasiri, What is the use of inviting the Dalai Lama to Sri Lanka, (even if the present GOSL grants him a Visa), when the Mahanayakes will not acknowledge Him because he is a Mahayane or Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhist?

    Now Muslims have started to worship Dalali Lama!

      Dalai Lama has become a hero to the Muslims now. What a pity.

      I don’t think Gautama Buddha is a real Buddhist.
      If he was a real Buddhist he wouldn’t have preached non violence.
      Gautama Buddha & Dalai Lama are all actors. They are nothing in front of Gnanasara, Elle Gunawansa, Athuraliye Rathana, Ellawala medhananda,Itthakande Saddhatissa.

      Its very much doubtful if Lord Buddha was a coward. He was nowhere closer to our brave monks. Siddhartha Gautama was probably an American agent or an NGO kakkek.

        Buddhu Puddhu,

        Dalai is the retired political head. He is not a Rin Poche and from the likes of it you have never met them. They mostly speak French and Swiss French apart from Tibetan.
        Gautama was born a Hindu and died a Hindu. His scripts written after 500 years are seen in Tao,Confucius of the same time and China has most of Gautama statues, Longman Grottoes – so why an Indian unless he is great.

        Dalai Lama is listened to and respected by the part world that matters except by Communist Party of China for political reasons only.
        He dislikes luxury and he reminds his people the reason for being here.

      To Modaya, Worship is all you are trained to do throughout life, from childhood days worshiping parents, students do it to teachers, all Buddhists to dead bodies and helpless statues, monks (however sinful they may be), Bo saplings and trees, fire, political leaders and on and on, the list is endless. May be that is probably why you expect Muslims will do the same, as in this case when the Rev. Dalai Lama speaks against violence unleashed on them. Of course we certainly respect the Dalai Lama as a very senior Buddhist leader, and we do it for your own sake, and for of all our Buddhist friends and neighbors living in our country. But we don’t worship him silly. That’s definitely a no, no. How can we, when we don’t worship our own Prophet? Get a hold on reality for Lord Buddha’s sake.

        Marwan I am sorry but your understanding of Buddhism is faulty. Buddhists do not worship anyone, salute would be a more accurate term. To the outsider it appears to be worship but it isn’t.

    Any protest against minority attacks are welcome.

    However the Buddhas message is not relevant to Sri Lankan Sinhala people. Buddhism for the Sinhala people has always been a tool of oppression.

    attackers are irrational and foolish and do not expect international criticism.
    when it comes they try to say where were you when ltte did that and this. ltte attacks will never justify attacks on muslims..attackers think only they are right and perfect.it is also a practice to put the entire blame on the voiceless minorities. there are legal luminaries like GL and palitha kohena to argue to safeguard any criminal activity by state authorities. they normally do not take cases favouring innocents. see the criticism leveled against ven.dalailama.
