Operation ‘Sonic’: Gnanasara Appointment Points To Sinister Plot To Ignite Communal Tensions

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s decision to appoint the country’s most rabidly racist monk to chair a Presidential Task Force entrusted with implementing the Government’s ‘One Country One Law’ concept has been a slap in the face of minorities and the rule of law, activists and lawyers said.

The idea of handing over a law drafting process to a convicted felon is an outrage, Sri Lankans said on social media, as the country reeled from the shock of the appointment.

Galagodaththe Gnanasara is only out of prison because of President Maithripala Sirisena’s horrendous decision to pardon the monk who was facing a six-year jail term for contempt of court in 2019. He was jailed for intimidating the wife of disappeared person Prageeth Ekneligoda and disappearances campaigner Sandya Ekneligoda, in full view of the magistrate at the Homagama court in 2016. The rabidly racist monk has been at the helm of a hate-campaign against Sri Lanka’s Muslim population since 2012. The rampaging, rambunctious monk has spearheaded at least two major anti-Muslim riots in Aluthgama and Digana.

Gnansara is the General Secretary of Sinhala extremist group Bodu Bala Sena, which is synonymous with rising anti-Muslim sentiment in Sri Lanka since the organization was first launched in 2012.

His elevation as Chairman of a task force entrusted to measure draft laws against the Government’s One Country-One Law policy, which has always been a sophisticated slogan to assert the dominance of Sri Lanka’s Sinhala-Buddhist majority against the minorities, is a new low even for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who has made no secret of the fact that he was a president for the Sinhalese people. The appointment is being seen as a direct affront to Sri Lanka’s minority communities who have long been terrorised by the BBS monk and his gang. The appointment of Gnanasara as Chair of the taskforce marks the first time the link between the Gotabaya Rajapaksa wing of the SLPP and the racist monk stands concretely exposed.

The 13-member task force comprises four Muslim representatives including two moulawis but not a single representative from the Tamil community.

The appointment marked the elevation of Gnanasara from “foot-soldier to general” Sri Lankans remarked on Twitter after the news broke.

Colombo Telegraph learns that the decision to appoint Gnanasara as head of this controversial task force might point to President Rajapaksa having ceded near-complete control to his intelligence chief Suresh Sallay.

The State Intelligence Service (SIS) Chief is a long time Gotabaya Rajapaksa ally, and under his presidency, Sallay is the most powerful official in the current Security establishment. Maj. Gen. Suresh Sallay is the operational nerve centre of the Gotabaya Rajapaksa administration, feared by even the President’s closest allies.

The highly skilled intelligence officer had a specific task when Rajapaksa held office as Defence Secretary from 2005-2015, to sow communal tensions in the country in order to keep the ruling family’s electoral prospects steady. At the Directorate of Military Intelligence, then Brigadier Sallay started and nurtured both the Bodu Bala Sena and the Thowfeeq Jamath, which counted among its membership at one point, even the suicide bomber Zahran Hashim. Pitting the two extremist organisations against each other helped to keep the Rajapaksa family’s Sinhalese electoral base fired up and intact. After the Rajapaksa Government fell in 2015, it was revealed that both the BBS and the SLTJ were funded by the Defence Ministry through a slush fund set up for the purpose.

Galagodaaththe Gnanasara is a creation of, and a creature widely linked to, the current SIS chief.

President Sirisena continued to retain Brigadier Sallay as Director of Military Intelligence until the end of 2016. Colombo Telegraph learns that when a military intelligence unit led by Colonel Shammi Kumararatne operating from Giritale was exposed as being behind the Prageeth Eknaligoda abduction in 2010, DMI Director Sallay ensured the Sri Lanka Army paid for high profile attorneys to represent his men.

Colombo Telegraph is now able to reveal that it was then Brigadier Sallay who sent the monk Gnansara to the Homagama Magistrate’s Court, where Ekneligoda’s Habeas Corpus inquiry was unfolding, to hurl insults and slurs against the journalist’s wife in open court. During the raucous incident inside the courthouse, the monk claimed that the entire judicial system was carrying out a LTTE agenda by bringing charges against so-called war heroes. Gnanasara’s intervention in the Homagama Magistrate’s Court was an exercise to discredit Sandya Ekneligoda who has waged a relentless campaign to bring her husband’s abductors to justice, and cast doubt upon her as a LTTE pawn setting out to target military intelligence officers.

Then Homagama Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake, now a High Court judge, filed contempt charges against the monk in the Court of Appeal.

The racist monk’s promotion as Chair of a presidential task force has brought questions back to the fore about whether Gnanasara is being “handled” by his original MI handler. For the first time in his career, Maj. Gen. Sallay is in the spotlight, with the Catholic church now raising questions about his involvement with Easter bomber Zahran Hashim when military intelligence was nurturing this extremist group.

As the Government’s unpopularity mounts, Gnanasara’s entry into the mainstream of the Gotabaya Rajapaksa administration raises grave questions about whether Suresh Sallay has been tasked once more to use the extremist monsters he created nearly a decade ago, to spark communal tensions and violence in order to whip up support for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa within the Sinhalese nationalist constituency.

    Sri Lanka is a country practicing pluralism since time immemorial. History has shown that ancient kings has given due respect to other faiths. This was quite evident even during the period of King Devanampiyatissa. It is after his period Buddhism crept into Sri Lanka. King Devanampiyatissa’s father was Periya Sivan. Since Devanampiyatissa’s period both Buddhism and Hinduism were practised and Islam came later with the arrival of Arab traders and thereafter Catholicism & Christianity were introduced. It was S.W.R.D.Banadaranayake who introduced the Sinhala Only Bill which laid the foundation for the growth of Buddhist extremists. Strictly speaking all religions pave way to the same goal – a way of life leading to non-violence. It is like rivers flowing in all directions and finally ended up in sea. Likewise all the races had their personal laws to suit their customs and traditions and they respected each other. One Law One country is only suitable in countries where a specific race is living. But Sri Lanka is home to Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Christians & Catholics. Because of the extremist policies. S.W.R.D.Banadaranayake was eventually assassinated. It cannot be ruled out that because of the One Law One Country, tomorrow mad Gnanasaro Thero will even preach everyone should worship only Lord Buddha. One Law One Country concept was intended to deviate the attention of the public from the high cost of living.

      Nandasena’s Presidential cats are coming out of their bags. All this time he denied any connections to the BBS. Now it’s slowly becoming clear that he was the Godfather behind both the BBS and the NTJ. What depths will this hypocrite plumb to stay in power? Will Duminda Silva be appointed as Chief Justice next?
      In the midst of all this, that other clown, Cabral, has issued a press statement blaming Moody’s for mentioning governance issues in their latest review. Is there any governance to speak of?

        I think the appointment of Muslims is just to show that ‘minorities’ are ‘accomodated’ for the liberals and a like who are worried about tokenistic representation in a Sinhala Buddhist country.

It may be to show that more Muslims mean to accommodate minorities but there is another side of this is that there are still number of Muslims can be bought easily like those who voted for 20th amendment to go against Islam. We cannot forget Islamists were used in Easter Bombing and blame went to muslim community.

          Sumanthiran has not agreed to any such thing. Please note that scrapping the Thesawalamai will be the death blow to the unitary state. Thesawalamai is just a family law of the Jaffna Tamils. Its formed by the basic cultural and religious values and practices of the Tamils, and in practice it forms the functional rules cultural foundation of the Tamils in the northern province. As such its an irrevocable cultural right of the Tamils in the northern province to practice this law. The government meddling with it or scrapping it will totally against international cultural rights laws. Thesawalamai needs some small changes, but that’s something the Tamils must do themselves, as they wish. Its a joke that a commission headed by a Buddhist priest with a highly dubious character gets to decide anything about the Thesawalamai. No wonder the Tamils want a separate state. Mind you, even the last of the Tamils sympathetic and supportive of the Sinhalese will turn their backs on Srilanka, if the government tries to do anything high handed, like they always do. This is simply outrageous.

    What on earth is this lunatic president of Sri Lanka thinking? Is he thinking at all?
    What kind of message is he sending to the minority in our country. Does he think this will make the minority feel safe, secure, and feel that their interests will be taken care of, or will they feel targeted, harassed, and in danger of losing property and lives.

    Is this the way to govern a multi religious nation? This is sending a strong signal to the rest of the world too. Sri Lanka is a land of racists, led by a racist family, and the Rajapaksa’s are pandering to the Sinhala Buddhist supremacists, who think they can attack the minority whenever conspiracy theories are spread, and hate speeches are made against them. Maybe it is another attempt to distract the nation by the Rajapaksa’s, from the mess they have put this country in, and from the fact that a foreign nation, not the Sri Lankan Muslims, who are taking over the country.

    Democracy in Sri Lanka is eroding, and our country is becoming unrecognizable.
    We should all be weeping.

    We all knew this gang of war criminals were elected by a bunch of brainwashed racist morons just to do this. They will be very happy if he really marginalizes the island’s Tamils and Tamil speakers, even if they starve and die. This has been the story since dependence. The politician who promised the most to marginalize discriminate and commit crimes on the Tamils gets elected by the majority of the Sinhalese as the leader of the country. No Tamils on the committee and look at the Gazette notifications, only in Sinhalese and English, no Tamil, despite the fact, Tamil is supposed to be an official language on par with Sinhalese. We all know this is just in paper and to fool the UN and the west who want to be fooled as they also do not care. We all know Muslims and their politicians will sell anyone for benefits. Can never trust a people who had denied their actual origin and heritage and ran and claimed another people as their origin and heritage for perceived economic and political benefits, despite the fact the other people have categorically stated they are not descended from them. Pardoned criminals and murderers are released and given important positions just because they are Sinhalese, whilst innocent Tamils and now Tamil Muslims languish in Jail. This is the future of the island’s Tamils. Yet India, the UN and the West are pandering to these racists. Pretending everything is fine.

    There is no options left for Rajapaksas other than creating racial tension for their own survival. But this has been the case since independence. Rajapaksas just mastered and took it to a different level. It appears now the war is against the Pope, Vatican and church. It’s well known how resentful our political con artist Mahinda is, who may not easily forget Pope refusing to give an audience to listen to his BS.

    The caption says “plot to incite communal tensions”. But then the question arises why incite communal unrest, since by itself is serves no purpose for the Gotha regime. However, if taken together with a lot of other dangerous, criminal or anti-democratic acts of Gotha and his military hangers on, it begins to make sense.
    If not an outright coup as in Burma, Mali or Sudan, a plot seems to be in hand at least to declare a State of Emergency, curb press and Internet freedom, declare strikes and demonstrations illegal, and impose enhanced autocratic control.

    Putting the things into context reveals a lot. By reading the articles in CT itself one can compile the chain of events that took place in the past and one can predict the future too.
    In the presidential inauguration speech, Gota said it was his ten-year struggle to build a Sinhala Buddhist government. Complementing to it the monk came out and said his project was finished and the list of his projects in the ten years period includes riots, looting, and mob attacks against minority communities using ill-informed, marginalized low cast supporters, who were prepared to commit any violence against minorities to feel recognized under the pretext of protecting the Buddhist nation. These mob attackers got the protection of the state, like that of Zaharan, the convicted criminal who got protection, probably from the so-called Sonic Sonic.
    (When the monk mobilizes the margninalized, poor, low caste gangs, the high caste monks are supposed to turn a blind eye to it, otherwise, their privilege over the lower caste segments will be exposed by the monk and it will cause collective shame to the cast preferential system. Therefore, by the silence of the high-cast monks and community in order to maintain their privileged cast position, impliedly they too aided and abated to those mob attacks on the minorities!)

      We know that you do not understand a lot of things, as the brain is pea-sized. This is why you most probably voted in this racist war criminal and a bunch of racist fascist Sinhalese Buddhists to teach the Thamizh a lesson and now the Muslim Thamizh who supported you. The four Muslims on the committee will sell their co-religionists, they are just there to rubber stamp and Thamizh is the second-largest community and are as indigenous to the island as the Chingkallams. We were 26% of the island’s population until large scale ethnic cleansing of the island’s Thamizh began after independence. Around two million Thamizh have been chased out of the island and 30% of their historical lands stolen, to deliberately make the Chingkallams more powerful, to make this one law and religion-state. When was this island a Chingkallam only Buddhist island?

          Nk this island was never exclusively Sinhalese Buddhist. Remember there was a Tamil kingdom in the north and Tamil chieftaincies in the east, that was independent until European colonization and even during the Portuguese and Dutch era, they ruled the Tamil parts of the island as a separate colony. It is thanks to the British that the Sinhalese became the overall majority on the entire island and were able to control the once independent Tamil north and east. It would have been a different story if the Tamils from the north and east were always under Sinhalese rule and subjects of Sinhalese and their laws prior to the arrival of the Europeans but they were not. Therefore their historical traditions and their traditional laws should be respected just as much as the Sinhalese history, tradition and laws. Both are indigenous to the land. Even the religious laws of the Muslims provided they are not in dispute with other laws of the land should be respected.

            Just because you are now in a majority in the island either ethnically or religious wise, thanks to the action of a colonial power that had amalgamated lands that were separate and not because it was ancient and historical, does not make it correct to impose your laws, language culture and religion on others. This is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious land and being in the majority does not make it your land only. Each ethnic and religious community has a right to follow its own personal laws with reforms to suit the modern world. Many multi-ethnic and multi-religious countries have different personal laws for different regions, ethnicities and religions.

    Duminda a convicted murderer whose appeal was rejected by court was pardoned and a week later appointed as chairman nhda. He tried a land grab in darley road and the supreme court ruled in favor of the petitioner and the nhda was asked to hand back the land. The manner in which both Duminda and Gnanasara are harbored, pardoned, mollycuddled and used with impunity and then unleashed is so similar.

    I see Gnanasara priest being slandered for his appointment by the President. Most of the critics would accept any appointment by the President, especially if it is a high position like an ambassador. This appointment of Gnanasara is no fun job, it is trying to create one law for all Sri Lankans , which is far beyond this man’s mental capacity. Trying to do this the man may go mad. If any one is to be criticized it should be the president.

    Some are saying Gnansara was imprisoned . The charge was contempt of court, yes, just like Ranjan Ramanayake. To take it as a big issue, is to elevate our judiciary. No one today, respects that.

    At least the priests speaks his mind and is not hiding behind some institution. He moves with the people and knows how they feel about certain issues.

    Our constitution is being drafted by a shadowy lawyer who has appeared for fees for different people, different parties and conflicting ideologies. Some times he has appeared for the victim and other times for the perpetrator. He himself has no principles.

    I personally prefer Gnansara because with him we know what it is about. These slimy lawyers who have no idea of our history, don’t care for the culture, have contempt for the people , will do anything for money are contemptible.

      Dear DS.
      So hope you not saying that a shyster lawyer and Gnanissara are the only two alternatives we have – have we sunk so low. Or may be best brains feel we have sunk to the abyss of no hope, and do not want to waste time drafting a constitution which the politicos will finally twist it to suit themselves at voting time, as they have done in the past in Parliament.

      I suppose you haven’t seen a drunken monkey with a sharp razor or knife.

      Dear DS
      ….… “Gnanasara was imprisoned . The charge was contempt of court, yes, just like Ranjan Ramanayake”………
      I would disagree there. Ranjan spoke in general terms and 95% would agree with what he said. He said it as a part of the social consciousness.
      Gnanassara behaved IN COURT like a thug and openly threatened the Magistrate in the Sandha Ekneligoda’s case. That was personal intervention to subvert justice.
      It is further a black mark on SL that one who spoke the truth is still in jail while a thug who directly threatened a Magistrate in open court is pardoned and made to draft laws.

      You have to be in the minority to be disgusted by this appointment. Why have low standards for anyone in the Government, even in toothless committees? We should always expect neutral, knowledgeable members, not racist, felons, thugs, and Rajapaksa yes men. How about higher standards?

    We have seen in the past leaders of various nations making stupid, illogical decisions which resulted in them being thrown out or in some cases losing their own lives. This decision of appointing “Thug of a Monk” Gnanasara to head the task force could be one. It also could be to take the heat from Rajapakses regarding Pandora Papers disclosures.

    This has been a multi-ethnic and multi-religious land from ancient times, where both Hindu and Buddhist practices and laws were respected from ancient times and later Islamic and Christian religious practices and laws. Already the civil, company and criminal law are the same for everyone, only the personal law is different for certain communities like the northern Tamils, Kandyan Sinhalese and Muslims. These come from ancient religious and cultural traditions from these communities and people and should be respected. If there is anything that is medieval or not in keeping with the modern world or human rights these can be reformed and amended. Why all this one country one law and when it never was and was working quite well. Why is a rabid racist who was convicted to head this? Why no Tamil in this so-called committee, despite Tamils being the largest minority, even after more than 2million chased out of the island since independence. What next one county one law then one country, one law, one people, one identity one language and religion only? Arnt there better things to worry about?

      This is trying to make the Sinhalese Buddhist identity the sole identity of the land by stealth. If you read all the Sinhalese hardliner websites this is what they want and many even post these thoughts here. The country to be called Sinhale ( land of the Sinhalese when it never was only the land of the Sinhalese ) and the people to be called only Sinhala. This is what all this is solely heading to.

    By appointing religious extremists to the Task Force, which is going to formulate the family law, Lankawe is not hiding that the government keeps moving forward on the energy of fire invoked by the communal hatred. This current problem arose because Don Stephen Modaya destroyed the Muslims family law in 1951. If it is true that Lankawe has 2500 old Culture, why do you need a new family law now? No non-Muslim country has Sharia (MMDA) in their countries. Stephen created this to divide and rule Tamils and Muslims. It was like pricking a needle into a banana to make Muslim politicians fall to the target by Don Stephen. Now the Royal Aanduwa is destroying the entire country’s family life tranquility. Families are going to face individual member oppression by their own family members, in addition to the Royal Rapist troops’ rapes, thefts, false & framed arrests & unemployment- new order, new status, caste, low – high level within the old family members. In Tamil they say “Vara Vara Mamiyar Kazhuthai Mathiri”(As time passes, mother in law is turning out to be a real donkey). The growth is like half Parabola Graph (y=x2, x>0). Lankawe, from Don Stephen time, it is never being shy of showing its satanic, devil face.

      Mallaiyuran,
      “Lankawe, from Don Stephen time, it is never being shy of showing its satanic, devil face.”
      —-
      Don Stephen Senanayake and other leaders wanted to keep the people in this country as one nation and formed United National Party (UNP), Sri Lanka Freedom Party (ALFP) but racist separatist Tamil politicians sabotaged that effort by forming racist political parties, e.g. SJV Chelvanayakam’s Illankai Tamil Arasu Kachchi (toned down as Federal Party in English) formed in 1949 which had as its hidden agenda the establishment of a separate state.

    Elections won in Lankawe by stunts, not by polices, as Hitler worshiping Modayas have no capacity to understand policies, but open the mouth wide, seeing the road rowdies’ muder stunts. Then following the election Lankawe is ruled by stunts, not by implementing promises. Anyway, who can bring free rice from Moons?; so just brush off the promises given to Modayas on the election platform – feel no guilt or say no sorry on that! That is the technology of Aappa diplomacy. There is no gas in the country. Aanduwa is at the feet of Middle East Countries. So, it is playing this trick to Muslim countries to release some gas without money. India is getting Western Terminal. China Getting Hunu Contract. America getting Kerawalapitiya. Now Muslims getting their MMDA-Sharia. Then, why is Aanduwa caring for all these people? Because Modaya Crowd is not getting their free Paan and Parippu. Any time they can go on a rampage on the government the way they annually celebrate with Tamils and Muslims’ life and properties. If no rice Modayas, won’t eat Kavuum because it is not hunger suppressing. So Aanduwa is oiling everybody’s hands in advance, instead buttering the citizens’ bread.

      You are wrong.
      Mahinda Rajapakshe promised to wipe out Tamil terrorists and he implemented his promise.

    Typical freemasonic tactics.
    Whenever the spotlight is on the corrupt, greedy, oppressive ruling classes, they will create some communal tensions, to get the public distracted.
    Gnanasara is nothing but a tool used as and when necessary.
    Thankfully the most high is going to deal with all these serpent seed creatures very soon.

    Some time back I read an article written by a prominent person that the Rajapakses have “Muslim” blood in them. Now I wonder if that blood is “Sufi Muslim” blood as all the Muslims who have been appointed to the Presidential Task Force appear to be Sufi Muslims whereas in Sri Lanka majority of the Muslims are Sunnies.

      In the meantime most probably under one country and one law, there is a move to transfer around 1500 Chingkalla families from Anuradhapuram to Thamizh Vavuniya north to deliberately change the demography. The country can get bankrupt, people may starve, however, the master that was hatched up by all Chingkalla politicians to Chingkallize and steal Eezham Thamizh lands in the north and east continues. This is the only thing that is being done very efficiently. Foolish and gullible Thamizh politicians and Prapakaran. However what can they do, even the international community is indifferent. Recently the British foreign minister met the Sri Lankan foreign minister and as per her tweet spoke and discussed everything other than human rights. Why should they? After all, it is thanks to Britain and our gullible unsavvy Thamizh politicians at the time of independence that we Thamizh are now in this plight

    ” Brigadier Sallay started and nurtured both the Bodu Bala Sena and the Thowfeeq Jamath, which counted among its membership at one point, even the suicide bomber Zahran Hashim. “

    This is precisely why the government is refusing to hold a full investigation into the April 21 Easter attack by Muslim extremists that killed 270 Tamil Catholics and maimed 500 or more.

    It is no secret that Gotabaya is the godfather of BBS. He attended the opening of BBS Headquarters at Galle when he was the Secretary of Defence. Likewise, he placed Zahran Hashim and 30 other Muslim extremists on the payroll of the State Intelligence Service (SIS) unit headed by Maj. Gen. Suresh Sallays who is a long time Gotabaya Rajapaksa crony.

    The government knows that holding a full investigation into the Easter attack will be like opening a can of worms.
