Muslims Condemn Gnanasara’s Call For Pope To Apologise Sri Lankan Buddhists

Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary, Galagoda atte Gnanasara demanding Pope Francis to apologize to Sri Lankan Buddhists is extremely offensive and reflects intentions of alienating the Catholic community in Sri Lanka, the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) states.

The MCSL releasing a statement with reference to the media reports that quoted Gnanasara’s demands to Pope Francis states such claims are made with plans of fuelling division in Sri Lanka by alienating the Catholic community.

“Venerable Gnansara’s verbal tirade as reported mirrors the increasing intolerance, hate speech and violence that have gripped Sri Lanka,” MCSL Vice President Hilmy Ahamed states in the media release.

Furthermore they have expressed serious concerns over the persistence of groups such as the BBS, infamous for promoting ideologies that incite religious and racial hatred that could lead the country towards religious conflicts.

“Venerable Gnanasara and the BBS’s continued attack on religious minorities in the country have been a cause for serious concern to all communities, including the majority community who live in peace,” the statement reads while urging the government to contain such organisations in order to pave way for all religious communities to live in harmony as Sri Lankans.

Gnanasara’s demand for the Pope to apologize to all Sri Lankan Buddhists for the atrocities and murders that were committed by colonialists, has come under heavy criticism by various parties including Kithu Handa (Voice of the Catholics) that has claimed such statements are made to undermine and disrupt Pope Francis’s visit to Sri Lanka in January 2015.

      Samitha,
      How dare you call this man “Gobbasara”… He is a hero for so many S_Buddhists.. He is a hero of country president and his brother Gobbaya, ops sorry, Ghothaya.. All S-Bhuddist Mahanayakes love him or scared of him… So this BBS man is real “Gnanasara”. “Full of Wisdom” “Overflowing of Wisdom”……. Watarake Vijitha is the “Gobbasara”, this is why police and Mahanayakas put him in jail.. If Wataraka Vijitha is not a “Gobbasara”, he should have selected Tibet or India as his place of birth …All his fault…

    The BBS is a terrorist group funded and supported by the govt of Sr Lanka.Hence,it is ver unlikely that this group will be banned….for as long as they are operating there will never be any freedom for the minorities of Sri lanka…their aim is to cleanse tge country of the minorities and establish an all sinhalese nation..we, the muslims tamils and christians hv lost all our funderme tal rights…we exist in fear as we cannot depend on the armed forces who are directly u nder the supervision of the top man….

    Did the church oppose the horrors of colonial rule in Sri Lanka? Does the church today oppose the horrors that all nation states commit in the name of national security? All religions support the violence of the state. All religions must openly oppose the violence of the state. It is not just Christianity but all religions.

      “All religions must openly oppose the violence of the state. It is not just Christianity but all religions.”

      Is there an exception for Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”, in the Land of Native Veddah? The day seems to support that.

      The Sinhalese themselves sided with the British to remove the last and legitimate King of Kandy and what apologies do they need. The last Nayakkar King was the custodian of the Dalada Relic of shock many from Burma and Thailand tried in vain to capture. That old Tamil Nayakkar’s precincts are now used by the Sinhala Buddhists for the religious sanctuary. Now count who are the traitors of Buddhism, the Sinhalese themselves who undermined the soverignity of the last bastion of the Kandyan Highlands.

    My opinion is first of all Nanasara should apologize Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha for not living according to Vinaya Pitaka. The disgraceful behaviour as monk is clearly seen in speech and action. He’s a living evil full of anger and hatred.

    Who’s Nanasara actually to demand The Pope who’s the leader of the worldwide Catholic Church.

    ( Just the way Nanasara insults Dilan Perera… Nanasara is mona nariyekda when compared to the Leader of the worldwide Catholic Church) I accumulate negative karma using this parusha watchana. But one has to highlight these things….

    This Nanasara should seriously see a psychiatrist. He doesn’t know who he is, What he’s doing and Whom he’s insulting….

    Muslims condemn the behavior of Para-Ganasara of BBS,

    So far no Buddhist has condemned Ganasara behavior. Why? Does it mean that it is silent approval by the Para-Sinhalese “Buddhists”

    Gnanasara is an insult to the entire Buddhist nation. His call for his Holiness for crimes committed by the British Monarchy shows the depth of his knowledge outside his thugerism. The United Kingdom is not a Catholic nation and the Pope has nothing to do with the British Monarchy. He is probably worse than Mervyn Silva to grab media headlines. The patrons of BBS need to note his total disrespect for his Holiness prior to a visit by Pope Francis. It would be disastrous for our nation should this stupid call gain momentum and His Holiness the Pope cancels his visit. How will the first lady respond???

        “How things works out to be, where all sri lankan are?”

        Why do you think there are more sihala buddhist down under even though they don’t have the blood group to migrate.

        Kappan kararays with the million dollar (like sirisena cooray the former theater manager)

        Australia the land of thieves has changed from growing rice to grape Wine because of change in climate.
        sihala buddhist monkies grow ganga down under and this too does not need water. So the present day Hora Oru is full of sihala buddhist not tamils.

    I think this whole thing is a movie… A horror movie… Real life people can’t do these type of things unless they have a very serious mental disorder. Especially monks. When a lay[person becomes a monk the monk has to live according to Vinaya pitaka..

    Nanasara is the Dushtaya and the people who lost lives, lost property and still under threat are the victims … A good movie…

    Nanasara, we are a very small country in the world… When we go overseas there are people who even don’t know about our country. We are like ants among huge dinosaurs….

    We think we are the people, we are the greatest, we are the ones

    Time has come to see things beyond our restricted way of thinking. In this new world the value of a human being is becoming more and more … This is a time where kings marry commoners… The world is changing. People should live happily and more peacefully where they were born.

    We should all try our best to achieve this. If you love Sri Lanka, if you love Buddhism learn to love other religions as well. Because never in this world a single religion will reign.

    Sinhalese Buddhists should not be identified as bararians… Sinhalese Buddhist monks should not be identified as barbaric Monks…

    Be wise. That’s what Lord Buddha always preeched..

    Why is the Muslim Council referring to this thug Gnanasara as Venerable? The man’s behaviour clearly suggests that he doesn’t deserve reverence let alone be called a member of the Buddhist clergy.

    I sincerely urge all to desist from referring to this animal as Venerable from now on.

    Actually we should thank Australia and specially Scott Morrison for arranging Visa to Galagoda Gandasara. We should request Morrison and Australian Govt. to Grant Permanent Visas for Galagoda Gandasara in Australia. We have some more Gandasara kind if Scott Morrison (Ape Minihekne) interested. Wimal Weerawansa, Dilantha Withanage, Champika Ranawaka, Nishantha Sri Warnasinha, Udaya Gammanpila, Nalin De Silva, Gunadasa Amarasekara, Athuraliye Rathana, Omalpe Sobitha, Akmeemana Dayaratna, Ittakande Saddatissa etc. Please Mr. Morrison help us. next time when you visit here you will get another brand new fresh one.

    For generations we Muslims have been ‘exclusivists’. Always suportive of the powers that be. It’s about time we became ‘inclusivists’ I am glad this trend is changing with the Muslim Council standing up for Catholics. Well done, Muslim Council of Sri Lanka and thank you Hilmy.

    These clowns crying for 3 Muslims killed in Aluthgama.

    Last week Israel killed 250 Muslims.

    Christian USA killed 129 Muslims last week in Muslim countries!

    For your information Inquisition was the order of the pope!! Glad you praise the pope for it. Go dig your own grave. Everyone in SL can be happy.

    SL should lift the ban on the beautiful film Innocence of Muslims. Beautiful film. I watched it. SL should have media freedom.

    I am glad the Muslim council has taken up the issue regarding kasippu gnanassara’s call to the Pope for an apology.
    Why should the pope apologise for what the Europeans did with the collaboration of some Sinhala Budhists. This demand horrifies the entire catholic world.

    Gnanassara must apologise to the pope and the Catholics unreservedly for making this offensive demand. This barbarian was a lorry driver even without a driving licence and now he has become a saviour of Sinhala Budhism which is not what Budhdha preached. This is terrorist should be excluded from all civilized human communities.

    Muslim council please keep it up and let all minorities get together and internationalise the terror committed by these saffron clad terrorists with the collaboration of Gothabaya and Mahinda.

    This regime must go. Dispatched from leadership sooner the better for the country’s good. Since an unjust ruler is the worst thing that can happen to any society in any country.

    Now that the worst has happened to Muslims by this sordid Buddhist group called BBS (Bodu Bala Sena) goons, we all raise our hands in prayer in this Holy month of Ramazan with our fasting and Quran recitals, whilst praying for deliverance from our own sins, we also pray for justice to be served on those who caused us so much harm through death, loss of means of income, smashing up our humble homes, looting all our personal wealth and belongings and setting our abodes in flames. thus causing severe distress and anxiety to our families and our businesses, for no fault of ours, but for simply being Muslim. But wait, the worst is still to follow.

    The marauders further added insult to injury by twisting the story in their favour by claiming that we Muslims (who were the most affected and victims) started the skirmishes and were the instigators of all the violence, which ironically affected 95% of Muslim population, including 4 deaths, of which 3 were Muslims and 1 Tamil. We Muslims know that Allah Almighty knows best what happened and was witness to all the events and machinations, and we have trust that justice will be served by Him.

    To Muslims, God Almighty is the best Judge of all Judges Who will mete out the most appropriate judgment when it comes to serving justice. We have also been taught in our Islamic teachings that God is always on the side of those afflicted by injustice caused to them, and if they turn to Him in all sincerity with repentance and prayer, their prayers will definitely be answered.

    As such, in this instance, all Muslims wherever they are, in SL or overseas have been extremely patient and have been bearing up the immense pain caused through the many insults having religious connotations on what they eat, dress and alleged breeding habits, uttering falsehood and ridiculing Your revelations on what You stated in the Holy Quran. They provoke us Muslims by burning an effigy with your name on it, splash pig blood and flesh into our Masjid, carry placards with your name in bold and a pig atop of that, demolish and set alight Your House of worship along with its contents such as volumes of the Holy Quran and Islamic literature. All this whilst provoking anger and hatred through spreading falsehood and horrendous lies uttered against us, to project us Muslims as being demonic and extremists amongst ordinary good people. They also belittle our strength in numbers as a minority who survive on their goodwill and at their mercy, they refer to us as an alien culture, that we have no place in this country, this the land of our birth and ancestral homeland. They truly have gone mad and lost their mental balance. They even have untethered government blessings to carry out their agenda, since not a word of caution is ever mentioned in their name, leave alone arrest and charge for arousing racial tension.

    They spite us and curse us mercilessly. We don’t even have the luxury of minimum protection of law enforcement, nor any security from a rotten to the core STF (Special Task Force – special skills trained Sinhalese only armed Force) and a biased army, which only serve their own kind in crisis time. They too were active participants in the recent mayhem, since they too were armed and connived with the marauders to persecute us Muslims with intent to cause maximum punishment. All under the cloak of a bogus curfew, meant only to keep the Muslims in, whilst the mobsters freely carried out their looting and arson of Muslim homes, under their watchful eyes. Our Def. Secretary is in charge of all Forces and his legacy is what flows in their veins.

    We don’t even have a proper forum (except in CT as in this case) to pour out our grievances and relieve our burdens. Our hearts cry out for justice. We are being suppressed at every turn. Events are falsified and presented to the local and Int’l media. Most of the local media itself is heavily biased against us Muslims, and report only to satisfy the government agenda by distorting facts. We Muslims are prevented from expressing our grievances, afraid that someone out there will get our message and will ratchet up the pressure on this racist government. What needs to be done is to demand that SL government immediately stop this nonsense and treat all its citizens equally and alike. The Leader is famous for lip service only, calling for inquiry, minorities should not be persecuted and the likes, but no action is ever made on the ground to implement any of those calls.

    We pray for justice O Allah. It hurts us immensely as we are being persecuted for being decent practicing Muslims, in every aspect of our lives. It is your Dheen in all its purity we carry in our hearts, and we will die with it and not cause it to get eroded nor distorted. This is what You wanted and expected of us, and we dutifully answered Your call in accordance with Your commandments as laid out in the Holy Quran and the teachings of Your beloved Prophet Muhammed (May Peace and Your blessings be upon him), sent to us as as an exemplary Leader for us to follow. O Allah please relieve us from this heavy load we carry in our hearts, crying out for justice.
