Navi Focuses On Religious Intolerance As Ravana Balaya Asks Her To Go home

The issue of religious intolerance in Sri Lanka was heavy on the agenda when UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay met with senior Government Ministers yesterday while hardline Buddhist monks leading the Ravana Balaya movement protested outside the United Nations Headquarters in Colombo.

Pillay whose meetings with Justice Minister Rauf Hakeem and National Languages and Social Integration Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara focused significantly on growing religious extremism in Sri Lanka against the Muslim community also discussed the Weliweriya incident and the still in force Prevention of Terrorism Act with the two ministers.

Minister Vasudeva Nanyakkara briefed Pillay about the steps taken to enact the anti-hate laws in order to stop the spread of extremism and hate against a community or religion.

Minister Hakeem said that he had briefed the High Commission about the steps taken to urge the Government to take action against the spread of hate campaigns against Muslims by the Muslim representatives within the Government.

All the while Monks from the hardline Sinhala movement Ravana Balaya clashed with police outside the UN HQ in Thunmulla yesterday, demanding to be allowed into the premises to hand over petitions to officials there.

The movement was protesting strongly against Pillay’s visit to the island.

Spelling her name “Pillai” the protestors held placards calling the UN human rights envoy a LTTE agent and demanded that she oversee the human rights situations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria instead of Sri Lanka.

Large numbers of police personnel were deployed to ensure the demonstration did not get unruly. When monks attempted to break the police barricades law enforcement officers formed a human chain to prevent the intrusion.

    Who is talking justice for the following ?

    “How would LTTE have got their Eelam/Self-Determination by killing innocent unarmed civilians?

    The below list of civilian deaths by LTTE since 1980s excludes the killings on unarmed civilians by Indian Peace Keeping Force as well as the civilians who died in India when LTTE assassinated the son of the Indian prime minister who first started training, arming and financially supporting Sri Lankan Tamil militants in India for which the world and India keeps mum about. If this was not state sponsorship of terror what is?

    The list will reveal how LTTE attacked Sinhala and Muslim villages in the North so as to kill or chase them from the North in a bid to claim the area as being inhabited ONLY by Tamils to which the Tamil National Alliance were also accessory as were the LTTE front organizations and others. This is a criminal offence.

        Softy, GOSL and MOD committed war crimes 100 times greater than the LTTE. They murdered, raped, tortured and arrested over 200,000 Tamil civilians in 35 years..

        No bloody comparison.

        Ms. Pillay is on a visit regarding accountability, truth and Justice related to the Tamils. not for anything else…

        Let the Buddhist Monks and BBS shout and demonstrate showing their true colors. LMAO.

        Furthermore, There will be Justice for the 4 US citizens including Fonseka in the USA. It is slowly cooking in the backburner/

          Ravaya Balaya and Balu Sena are full of SEXUALLY FRUSTRATED saffron clad thugs who are displacing their sexual frustrations by attacking innocent folk and minorities trying to do a days work!

          These saffron thugs should be given dildoes and asked to play with themselves!

            China Doll,

            “These saffron thugs should be given dildoes and asked to play with themselves!”

            This dildoes was not taught in the Enlightened Buddha’s teachings, the Dhamma.

            Would these BBS and Rawana Bala Monks attain Nibbana, Sansara and Rebirth by using dildoes?

            Looks like these monks cannot get to attain Nibbana, Sansara and Rebirth by following the Buddhas Teachings, the Dhamma.

      Jim, just to be clear. You are expecting the UN Human Rights Chief to investigate/condemn the acts of a terrorist outfit? Is that what all this, is supposed to mean?

      If so,

      Has any UN Human right chief ever looked into war crimes allegations of a terror outfit. Hamas, for example. Is it not a given that a terror outfit will commit acts of terror?

      Can the UN chief engage and investigate a non state actor? Is it possible?? Can there be an UN investigation against Laskah-e-taiba. In the event L-e-T is found guilty is the UN able to impose sanctions on L-e-T?

      If, on the banks of the Nandikadal GOSL wiped out the LTTE. Who is the UN HR chief supposed to take to task? The Tamil Diaspora??

        Bed rock Barney:

        those financiers of LTTE are still living in the west.

        what about them ?

        they are not yet arrested except the little ones who negotiated weapon purchases.

        • 0

          The Sri Lankan people are the financiers of the GOSL via taxes. When war crimes occur the UN goes after the GOSL leadership, not the people of SL. Likewise, once the leadership of the the LTTE is no longer, the Diaspora members can not be arrested. That’s how it is.

      I wonder how big the list of tamils killed by army since many of these attacks by the lttte were retaliations for tamils being bombed in temples and churches which does not justify but has to be also considered when this golaya is making lists of everything from pots and pans.

    • 0

      You missed SWRD Bandaranayake in the list. he also got killed by a terrorist.

    • 0

      LTTE was a Terrorist organization banned in many countries around the world. Killing innocents is what a Terrorist organization do. If the UN want to investigate what the dead terrorist organization (LTTE) did to the innocent people in Sri Lanka, it should start with the LTTE leaders still left in Sri Lanka such as KP, Karuna, Daya Master and so on.

      On the other hand, Sri Lanka government and the SL Army are there to protect the innocent civilians and not to kill them. The UN report, channel 4, the people in the north, and many other sources say tens of thousands of innocent civilians were killed by the SL army. The only way to find the truth is to have an independent investigation. We know what the Sri Lanka government and the SL Army did to our own community(Sinhalese) at Gampaha. When it comes to non-Sinhalese, cannot we imagine the obvious.

      Jim Softy,

      The notorious Mass Murderer terrorist Velupillai Prabhakaran, his whole family and his terror outfit of over 100,000 paid the ultimate price at Nanthikandal for all these killings he did.

      So why you worry still.

      Only VP’s three close associates who are KP, Pilliyan and Daya Master are in good hands of President Rajapakse now.

      So why worry…….Have fun and go eat an Ice Cream.

        Don’t talk stupid.

        Pabakaran was the killer. Killer had lot of financial supporters who are living in the west.

        they are still untouched.

        • 0


          Prabhakaran also had over half ton of Gold, lorry loads of foreign and local currency, Silver Jewelry, hundreds of SUV’s, Land cruisers, busses, lorries, Furniture and fittings and many other assetts whe he surrendered to the Army at Nanthikandal.

          What happened to all these…Where are they now…Who is the Alibaba…..Who is the Kangetta….

          Where’s KP’s cargo ships, London Supermarkets, gas stations, and International Bank Accounts and Millions of Dollars of foreign currency……Where have they gone….

          Yes there’s many educated Tamils who are doing very well in foreign countries who are still fighting for their rights, equal justice, liberty and freedom. What is wrong with it. What you want them to do, other than to fight for their rights.

          How about the Terrorists and Murderers like Karuna, KP, Pilliyan, Daya Master etc,etc, Where are they now…….Who is taking care of them.

          Remember in West, there’s a saying called…..”Money Talks”.
          In Sri Lanka, money not only talks, but also walk, bend, Kneel down, worship,kiss the as..s, anybody could be bought etc,etc.
          Under your big brother Percy, anything is possible with 10% and Tsunami Jack pot.

          Please ask what’s the meaning of “Money Talk” from your big brother Percy Aiya.

      When did you born? Is it 1984?
      The massacre of Tamils by Sinhala military started well before 1984 and never stopped. I don’t think there is any space in CT to give you all the details and it is a day to day event. The whole world were together in eliminating LTTE before eliminating you terrorists. Now there are no LTTE other than those who are with you under cover. Now the justice need to be done for those killing of Tamil civilians by your military and those armed paramilitaries you are nursing.

      I too agree with our friend Jim Softy with some few adding’s to the list.

      “06/04/2008 Suicide attack kills Hon. Min. JEYARAJ FERNANDOPULLE, Minister of Highways and Road Development, the Chief Government Whip and Treasurer of SLFP, Chief Guest attending road marathon in Gampaha 9 civilians including children die…”

      If our friend Mr. Jim Softy added “06/04/2008……..Treasurer of SLFP and wrote Law exam for Madamulana Percy Mahendra Rajapaksha, Chief Guest…” would have been better.

      If Mr. Mr.Jim Softy explains whereabouts of Ex. SSP lakshman Cooray, who transported suicide carders to kill Jeyaraj Fernandopullay would have been much appreciated.

      In my opinion our friend, Mr. Jim Softy would have included following murders as well.

      Killing 154 persons in 1989-1990 – Matale

      Muttur 5 AID workers

      Killing unarmed civilian in Katunayaka- Name Roshen Chanaka

      Killing unarmed civilian in Halawatha – Name Anthony Fernando

      Killing unarmed School boys – In Waliweriya Rathupaswala

      Killing 27 Unarmed Journalists.

      so next time try to give comprehensive list Mr. Softy please.

    • 0

      LTTE terror is over. Moreover it is not a state party nor a member country of the UN. Therefore your list is not an excuse to cover at least the death of three innocent people in valiveriya, which is beyond any reasonable doubt was carried out by the state. Therefore it is justifiable that the state should come under the scrutiny of the UN and thereby by the International Community.

      By the way it would be interesting if you can list all the killings done by the state and related parties since 1971 insurrection to the more recent incidents such as the killing of Lasantha Wicramathunga.

      Mr Softy,

      LTTE is a rebellion group, but not a Democratically elected government..
      Try to understand at least literal meanings of Democratic government and Rebellion group… You are trying to criticize and correct Rebellion group or trying to punish them.
      Is that your responsibility as a citizen ???? What about government’s obligation towards us (you & me as a Tamil and Muslim…) we gave that privilege to group of people to manage the country for all of us and secure the future of our children… Are they doing it for all of us Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims?

    Rawana Power Monks, ” Sangha”

    Are you guys following Buddhism or Sinhala Racism, Maraism with a painting of Theravada Buddhism to maintain the Monk Hegemony??

    1. To begin with Rawana was NOT a Buddhist. Rawana was a Hindu. Rawana was not Sinhala. He was native along with the Vedda and other tribes, who came from Southern India. Check the DNA.

    2. Lanka was a Hindu and Jain Island and peaceful. Look at Bali Indonesia, 94% Hindu and peaceful.

    3. The parents of Buddha were Hindu.

    4. The so-called Triple Gem is an aberration. It should be Double Gem.

    a) Buddha and
    b) Dhamma only.

    No need for Sangha, like you racists and BBS racists. This is not the Enlightened Buddhas teachings.

    The Sangha, during the 400 years before writing the Dhamma, introduced Sangha as the Third Gem in order to create the Monk hegemony.

    This is precisely what Dick Cheney did to the Republican Party Vice President Selection. He was the chair of the VP selection committee, and claiming that there was no qualified candidate, appointed himself as the Vice President.

    The Monks did the same thing to Buddhism. Appointed themselves as the Third Gem in order to maintain their hegemony. Like the Pope and the Catholic Church- infallible.

    There should be No Triple Gem. It should be Double Gem only.

    1. Buddha — The Founder

    2. Dhamma – The Teachings.

    Keep the monks away..and keep their hegemony away.

    Buddhism The Great — Part 1


    Buddhism The Great — Part 2

    This is funny. The fact that they protest her, and show hatred and anger towards her, while she focuses on religion intolerance, ONLY proves how intolerant they are, and simply is going to make it easier for minorities to prove how these saffron robed bigots, treat them. She is going to have a good idea, how these thugs operate, by the way they are “welcoming” someone from another country. These thugs are so ignorant and cannot think to deeply. No wonder someone is manipulating them like puppets.
    Which brings me to the question why exactly are they protesting her, when she has been invited in to the country?

      Yes Thank you for a useless irrelevant post. We all know of a loved one who lost his or her life due to the LTTE. My grand uncle use to cry with worry about his son who was serving in the forces. He was lucky and is still alive. Our neighbour was not so lucky. She was killed in a bomb blast. She was an only child and was pregnant. But they all died in vain if their sacrifice is to prop up a diabolical evil crooked bunch of murderers. You are also liable for what you support. There is no difference between VP and MR they are of the same strain of megalomaniacs.

    The demonstration will untimately do good.

    The violent demonstration removes all doubt in the eyes of NP that the Sri Lankan Buddist clergy are really what they are reported to be in recent times – violent unruly thugs in saffron robes.

    Seeing this personal violent demonstration against her – a UN envoy of peace – she does not need too much imagination to visualise what horrer these terrorists could instil in the minds of the hapless Muslims and other minorities in Sri Lanka.

    Enacting anti-hate laws by V Nanayakkara is just hogwash. There are enough existing laws in Sri Lanka to deal with hate attacks or any attack for that matter. The problem is the inaction of the law enforcement authorities in the face of blatant attackes against persons and property. To compound this inaction is the absolute inertia of the President and his family of high office bearers with regards to the growth of extremism. So what is the point of enacting new laws when the present laws that are sufficient is not enforced.

    Buddhist Monks protesting against the arrival of UN Commissioner for Human Rights. Good demonstration of the situation here. The right to protest and attack others reserved only for monks. Others are given the wedi hunda and tear gas treatment. Why dont the police get a restraining order aginst these monks as they did for the opposition demonstration at Fort?

    These yellow robed rogues through their ignorance are aggravating the situation of the country which already is vulnerable. Just think of the name they have selected for their “Baluvegaya” – Ravana! According to Skt epic Ramayana – which absolutely has no historical base according to eminent historians – Ravana the abductor of Seetha was a notorious womanizer and thug. So, these monkeys seem to have discarded their master,the compassionate Buddha, preferring to follow the ways of Ravana. What stupidity! Buddhists, beware of these rogues. Time has come to protect Buddhism from “Sinhala Buddhist” monks!

  • 0

    Can’t you see what these Ravana Balaya Saffron Terrorists are doing?

    Buddhism may be a religion or philosophy but the Buddhism in Sri Lanka (Sinhala-Buddhism) is not a religion, it is Paganism and Barbaric in nature. The Sinhala-Buddhist monks were Barbarians turned Terrorists.

    The Buddha Balu Sena skin headed Monk-eys (punks) are Buddhist Saffron Terrorists and they are practicing Barbarism/Terrorism in the name of Buddhism. Buddhism in Sri Lanka is nothing but Barbarism/Terrorism and should be banned. These Buddhist Saffron Terrorists should be hung upside down and shot like dogs and all the Buddhist temples should be demolished and destroyed. A Barbaric religion such as Buddhism should not be allowed to continue because it is producing more and more Saffron Terrorists.

    The Sinhala village idiots go and dump all kinds of food to the temple for these Bastards to wolf down, and once they turn into skin headed fat pigs, lazy doing nothing, the big fat bold headed saffron Terrorists come out to show the world what kind of Buddhism they are practicing in Sri Lanka.

    Our country will never come out of all this mess as long as these dirty, lazy, racist, skin headed Buddhist Monk(eys) are allowed to do what they do. These are the Barbarians who destroyed our country right from the beginning. As Sir John Kothalawela once said, these Bikkhus deserve to get TAR applied on their heads. Given a chance, I will not only apply tar on their bold heads but also on their buttocks, and then push the brush inside.

    These so called guardians of Buddhism (Saffron Terrorists) are actually the ones who are pushing the religions down the drain. The WORST among them are the so called big fat bold headed Buddhist punks like the Gandasara.

    The main problem is, most of the so called Buddhists in Sri Lanka are morons. When they see an orange or yellow cloth/robe anywhere, even wrapped on a broomstick, they start bending into different shapes to worship them.

    These so called Buddhist monks or rather Saffron Terrorist Punks are not only destroying Buddhism but also the country. They are the main cause for all the problems in Sri Lanka. They should be made to stand on a line, hang upside down on their saffron robe and shot like dogs. The best thing a democratic country can do is, put these skin headed punks in a cage (jail).

      MR Cruising around the world with his Nade looking for cheap publicity and fake trade deals among the third world countries will not slove Sri Lanka’s economic problems, but only waste our resources.


      Sixty five (65) years after Independence, none of our past Presidents or Prime ministers ever cruised around the world like the current showman just to sign some Trade deals. They could be easily signed by a trade Minister or an Ambessador who ever available to do that job.

      MR the biggest one man Showman Bonaparte cruising around the world with his Nade drinking Belarus Vodka and Bonaparte Brandy is his latest hobby.

      Dr.Navi Pillai should note how our Adambara Thatha spend his time and our money cruising with his Nade, wasting our Resources (Chartering Sri Lankan plane for five days) plus our valuable foreign exchange for “Maha Eka’s” big guy’s pleasure trips, when the people are crying and dying for drinking water.

      MR the Sri Lanka’s one and only Economic Assasin Donkey, when a world body is visiting Sri Lanka.

    Dr. Mrs. Pillay should understand that we are a nation who has more than 2500 years of proud history and we were a civilized nation even before South Africa or even India for that matter. Therefore she should not advise us how to protect Human rights and other rights as we have a human rights champion as a leader who rushed to Geneva in 1990 to protect our rights. He has already protected our rights to live and now a days he is trying protect of lives of “Harak”

    Sri Lanka is the only country which has pure Buddhism and our President, Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi is the sole custodian of the Pure Buddhism and to maintain the quality of pure Buddhism,

    1. Bodu Bala Sena, – or Gaanu 5 Naanasara Bodu Bala Sena,
    2. Rawana Balukaya,
    3. Singhala (Kola)Rawaya
    4. Deshapremi Janatha Wyaparaya.

    helping our Saddarmadveepa Chakwarthi to maintain pure Buddhism.

    Actually Our Saddrmadveepa Chakrawarthi Liberated the Country after sending 40,000 – 60,000 innocent Sri Lankan civilians to Nirwana through “Seth Pirith” from the custodians of Pure Buddhism.

    This is our background and she should not listen to Pakyasothi’s “NGO” and other Opposition leaders and human right activists. Our Advise is to Dr. Mrs. Pillay not to visit north as those areas are full of land mines.

    What she could do is just to sit in the Hotel and Listen to Rupawahini and ITN and make a report. For the rest all what she could do is to read Daily News, Divaina, Dinamina, Lankadeepa, Mawbima, Lankacnews, etc. etc. and complete the report for UN.

    Actually she should take Sec. Genaral Kamalesh Sharma and Vijay Nambiar as example and conduct a fair and Independent Investigation. If she need to know about Security situation of the country she should only read Security Colum of Divaina News Paper written by internal Security expert Keerthi Warnakulasuriya.

    She Should take additional precautions of All Balukayawal because they are the most Powerful forces in Sri Lanka other than Official Forces because they are armed with Powerful “Yellow Robs”

    Our Opposition people will cry that we don’t have Media freedom and they will point out recent incident that took place at Senior Journalist Mandana Ismail Abewickrama’s house. Dr. Mrs. Pillay should not listen to those Gossips and should only listen to Polce Spokesman Buddika Sriwardana. If Dr. Mrs. Pillay Listen to Police Spokesman she can write a fairy tale book and I am sure Children will love that kind of tales.

    If Dr. Mrs Pillay wants to study about our Parliamentary system she should have an interview with Hon. A.H.M Azwar and I am Sure during the course of Interview he will raise more than 2000 – 3000 Point of Orders. That would be enough for Parliamentary affairs.

    If Dr. Mrs. Pillay need to know about our independent Judiciary system she should leave Poor Minister Rauf Hakeem aside and have a chat with future Cheap Justice Shirani Burhan Tilakaratna in case Cheap Justice away from the country like our Aadambarakara Thatha.

    If Dr. Mrs. Pillay can spent some time with Hon. Arundika Fernando, she will understand the size of the media freedom that the country is enjoying.

    If Dr. Mrs. Pillay has more time try to meet Bandula Gunawardana to know about “Mila Suthra”, Dinesh Gunawardana to know about how to read a statement written by Defense Secretary, Rohitha Abegunawardana for Gold Market Values etc. etc.

    Actually in my opinion Dr. Mrs. Pillay should have postponed her visit to Sri Lanka as our Sanwedee Nayakathuma is out of the country visiting world No. 1 democratic country Belarus. Some gossip site says that Gayesha perera also there in that country to participate for Beauty contest or something, but please don’t believe that kind of gossip until you hear that there is a road named after that beauty queen.

    Our final advise for Dr. Mrs. Pillay is not to carry any money or not to ware any jewelries as we have robbers at large that they spent hours and hours to rob a person and believe me all these robbers are pending Army Deserters.

    Rauff Hakeem has once again proved that he is a traitor to the Muslim Community. He had an excellent opportunity to tell the truth regarding the harassment the Muslim community is going through in the hands of unruly Buddhist Monks. Without telling the truth the Navi Pillai he has been vague in his comments to her and passed the buck on to Vasudeva. What a traitor he is. He does not have the balls to be honest to his own people. This is the type of politicians who are ruining the community first and then the country. They have to be kicked out of politics.

    Dear Dr. Navi Pillai,

    Dr.Navi Pillai should look into the life of the samll children of seven years old who are been sent by their parents to be Samaneras purely on economic reasons.

    These samll Samaneras are being brainwashed, abused and manupulated by these BBS, Rawaya,Ravana Balakaya Monks to be extrimists and Racists.

    Also these small samaneras are been used on protest marches against other religions and their property, various business and Trade issues and on political and religious rallies. This is brainwashing and spreading Racism among these small Samaneras using Buddhist temple Madrasas.

    Please see the following web….


    First of all these innocent tiny children who are been forced by their parents to be Samaneras purely due to economic reasons. They do not join the Buddhist Sasana on their own wish.

    Once they join they are been brainwashed and been abused and manupulated by these senior Extrimist monk groups such as BBS, Rawana Balaya, Rawaya and JHU to be Racists, Extrimists and Terrorists.

    I was told that Ravana Balaya brought even these small children to the Colombo UN head quarters to protest against Dr.Navi Pillai’s visit to Sri Lanka.

    This manupulation and Brainwashing of these Samaneras should be stopped.
    They should never be allowed to participate in protest marches.

    Infact they should be taught to be Loving, kind and be positive towards all the other religions, communities and other racial groups.

    These misguided,misdirected, misled and mis-used Buddhist monks should be enlightened, educated and directed towards positive paths by some educated and intelligent persons and organizations for them to be more worthwhile, more positive and more productive to our society.

    Therefore I kindly request Dr. Navi Pillai to look into this matter and to see what UN could do to make a stop to this abuse by BBS, Rawaya, Rawana Balaya and JHU who abuse and brainwash these tiny seven year old Samaneras to be Extrimists, Racists and Terrorists.

    Thank You.

        They should be taught how to love others and the world, be passionate,kind, be respectful and to understand other religions and races and to be an example to the society.

        Not to use them to spread hatred among the communities, hatred among races and religions etc,etc.

        They should be taught to Live by the teachings of Lord Buddha and not the teachings of Ravana Balaya or Rawaya or Balu Badu Sena…..
