Police Deploys Units To Arrest Gnanasara, Travel Ban Issued

Police has deployed several units to arrest General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Galagoda Atte Gnanasara.

According to the police there are several charges levelled against the monk, including inciting religious disharmony.

Meanwhile, a court order has also been issued against Gnanasara leaving the country.

The development also comes amidst reports that Gnanasara has gone into hiding and is currently housed in a safe house belonging to a senior minister in the coalition government.

Yesterday, BBS’s Dilanthe Withanage said that there was a conspiracy to assassinate Gnanasara, and all the recent attacks that had taken place against Muslim owned establishments and mosques in the country were part of this larger conspiracy initiated by extremists elements which were supported internationally, as well as by sections of the government and the opposition.

    Racism and castiesm must be made criminal offences as in many civilised countries. So much energy and money is wasted to dealing with the abusers of others’ freedom. No one is allowed to escape committing those crimes.

    “Yesterday, BBS’s Dilanthe Withanage said that there was a conspiracy to assassinate Gnanasara…”

    If this is the truth, it is better for Gandassara to be in a safe Hose, PRISON!

    Last year 200 Muslim extremist clerics arrived in Sri Lanka, terror breeding Madrasa are mushrooming all over the island, they groom young children to become future terrorists. The culprit behind the IDP hoax, Halal fraud haven’t arrested yet. The Muslim politician who threatened the magistrate over the phone and throw stones at the Mannar Magistrate’s Court must be arrested.

      If the relevant law enforcement authorities fail in dealing with errant Muslims it is the authorities who should be held responsible but people like Gnanasara have no right to cause harm and damage to innocent Muslims people. The present Govt. seems to be no better than the former in failing to maintain law and order. The situation in the country will not change for the better for all the people to live in peace unless people decide to bring about a complete political change in 2020 and put it place a new political force which is progressive.

      Johnny Baby ———–“Last year 200 Muslim extremist clerics arrived in Sri Lanka,” ————Could you send me the details of the 200 Muslim extremists so that I can pass the information to the Police. ——————–“The Muslim politician who threatened the magistrate over the phone and throw stones at the Mannar Magistrate’s Court must be arrested.” ———————There are tens of thousands of potential criminals who are not being charged/punished including MR, GR, BR, WW, ……… and you and your guruvarayo the saffron thug.

    We Salute the President, PM and the Cabinet for this bold action to stop this nonsense! This man, and the forces aligned with are trying to burn and destroy the country for good. The Higher Buddgist Sanga in Myanmar too put one year ban on the activities of the Budhist Bin Ladin of Asia – Viruthu, they have warned him, if he continues to spit his vernom. and instigates trouble, they would take severe action, and ban him for life. Our Sanga too should follow them, and take action against this man, in order to keep the peace and harmony among the people.

    When politicians entertain crime, Criminals starts playing with politics. Crime should be separated from politics. This monk is only a thug. Nobody appointed him to safeguard the interests of the public. He is introduced to the society by criminally inclined politicians to distract the public from the plunders and blunders of the rulers. The authority to maintain peace remains with the PM. He is responsible for this chaos.

    This rabid ideologu’e along with his mentor ‘Butcher of Burma’ Wirathu , tarnished the image of Buddhism anyone else did.
    Clearly cut evidence proved he was given escort from the MoD under the directives Gotabya.
    Rajapaksass pouring money on Gnanasara to create another bloodbath like the one in Black July.
    It’s a pity another Rajapakse in this government given this mouth blowing coward refuge in his penthouse !!!!!
    Who will benefit? Not the Tuk Tuk drivers with the flashy ‘ Sinha Le’ posters but the Rajapaksas again Modayas!!!!!

    BBS’s Dilanthe Withanage says it is a conspiracy supported internationally, as well as by sections of the government and the opposition.

    But video footage available for the world to see on the internet shows that this monk has been in the forefront in all these activities.

    And we know who is being supported in this conspiracy and that is non other than BBS. We know that Norway and the Tamil Diaspora in Norway are supporting this group. It is simple. Target the Muslims create another black July. Then the Tamil Diaspora can point out to the international community that minorities are unable to live with the Sinhalese and a separate state is the only solution for minorities.

    Sadly uneducated, immature Sinhalese thinking that they are protecting Buddhism and Sinhalese have become a pawn in this conspiracy paving the way for the Tamil Diaspora and their ally Norway to achieve there objective which they couldn’t through the 30 year war.

    Even after Gnanasara hurled the most hurtful insults against Muslims by attacking their God, their Creator – Allah, the Muslims chose not to react in haste. They lodged their protests peacefully. The reason being their friendship, bonding and understanding between our two communities was not cemented in a day, nor in a hurry, but runs deep, sincere and is bonded strong. The majority recognize the fact that Gnanasara alongside with his goons do not represent them, let alone their entire community. Most just shun him and his rhetorics including his direct and veiled insults. He is self made marauder surviving on his wits and a gift of gab to scream down any opposition – pure bandit instincts. He is here to destroy the sanctity and nobility that Buddhism has achieved over many centuries deservedly, as a calm and serene philosophy (a way of life). He even goes to the extent of hurling insults at its most senior and learned leaders, with his gun-ho style of loose talk. The only language he understands and excels in, is his own style ‘its either my way, or the highway.’ Nothing else works or matters. The clapping and cheering clearly gives him the courage to make bold and controversial statements, and even eggs him on until he looses his own cool. Finally, he goes berserk and completely destroys himself, his self righteous image as a member of the clergy and ends up in a mud-pit brawl. This is Buddhism unwittingly digging its own grave. Very soon its followers will have had enough and look for alternate sources for solace and peace, and by then, they will know where to find it.

    The laws of Sri Lanka appear not applicable to Gnanasara Thera. Incitement to religious hatred is definitely barred, but this pseudo monk keeps spouting it whenever the opportunity arises and the authorities keep turning a blind eye.

    The fact that Gnanasara is free is a credit to his cleverness and an indication to the utterly ineffectual Police that we have.

    Also an indication t o the utterly ineffectual government it has been our misfortune to have.

    Forget about our leaders. We have no leaders; only jokers.

    I can’t understand why the ‘Sanga Saba’ & the Mahanayakas do not dis robe this punk. He is an insult to Buddhism & if the Sanga Saba can’t discipline law breaking, hate filled yobs like these masquerading as Buddhist monks, what is it’s purpose? They should do more than to turning up for ceremonies in their tax free vehicles & gorging on sumptuous ‘dana’ offered by the affluent with ill gotten gains.

    Nobody, least of all a Buddhist monk, should be allowed to act as vigilantes. It’s up to the police & the judiciary to maintain law & order. Nobody has the right to be the judge, jury & executioner.

      This response is for Patriotic Citizen,Citizens Forum.

      From the time of independence your forefathers said the same thing that Sinhalese have grievances. They wanted Sinhala only, so that Sinhalese would get a free passage to government jobs, enter universities basically get a free ride. No merit required. And minorities didn’t matter.

      SWRD was shot dead by a conspiracy hatched by a monk. His primary reason was to protect his business interest. The Sinhala Youth began an insurrection. Well they too had grievances. Tamils had grievances but for the Sinhalese only they had grievances. Minorities didn’t matter. The Tamil youth realized as the Sinhalese government was not prepared to solve there grievances, the armed forces including police are not going to protect them (Like it is happening right now to Muslims) so they had to protect themselves. And they took up arms. Not be left behind the Sinhala Youth began their second insurrection.

      So you see even 10,000 years from now the Sinhalese will be complaining about some grievance. They never will be satisfied.

    Police accepts its failure and incompetency and assigns the task to two teams of Dog Catches from the Kotte UC.

    Hope they will be successful.
