The protesters ignoring an enjoining order issued against the demonstration by the Balangoda Magistrate Court had entered the archaeological site by force and demanded the demolition of the Islamic Holy site. They had also brought with them, equipment including metal rods which they had attempted to deploy in order to damage the shrine that is revered by Muslims.

However, timely intervention by the Police that used water cannons to disperse the protesters, had subverted the attempts to destroy the holy site.

Police Spokesman ASP Ruwan Gunasekara said no arrests have been made so far but added further investigations are continuing in order to arrest those responsible for organizing the protest.

      RE: Sinhala Ravya , Para-Sinhala Ravya

      RE: Police Prevents Sinhala Ravaya Attempt To Damage Kuragala Site

      Just Apply the Law of the Land, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

      It is a crime, to damage property or harm people. Prosecute.

      Why Double Standards for these Para-Criminals?

      Level 1. Hate Speech that Causes minor incidents.

      Level 2. Hate Speech that Causes Major incidents.

      In both cases make them financially responsible as well for damages.

      1. Why is it that somebody cannot throw a rock, shoot and damage property, and it is crime? Because it causes property damage.

      2. Why is it that somebody cannot throw a rock, shoot and cause bodily injury or kill and it is crime? Because it causes bodily injury and killing.

      3. If Hate Speech results in 1 and 2 above, it should be a crime.

      It is the same as providing material support for the criminals. So, Sinhala Ravya, Para-Sinhala Ravya and others if their activities caused by their agents results in property damage and bodily injury, they should be accused for aiding those who committed the crime, and should be equally culpable.

      Apply the Law.

    President Sirisena & Prime Minister Wickremesinghe,

    Please Stop this now!! we don’t need such disharmony. That era is over with the previous regime. Be reminded that they were voted out of power for instigating, supporting and not investigating such action.

      If this was Rajapaksa regime, The Masjid would have been demolished by the racist Buddhist. But the good thing is that if the Hate Speech law is passed While Maithripala and Wickremesinghe in power the rights of Minorities will be protected long as both of them are in power, then the Police would have the ability to arrest and imprison them quickly. But the problem is now they do not have the ability to do that right now without the policy for racism and hatred.

    Lets wait and see if the Police will act on its own or await Politicians to push them
    in such matters. I think the Police should have arrested at least one or two offenders
    on the spot – as done in Western countries. This will be a lesson to those who come
    forward as paid thugs.

    Why no arrests – those robed thugs & ‘co-thugs’ with implements of demolition/destruction, who were “dispersed” should have been arrested.
    If not, there will be more attempts.

    This is a litmus test for the government. These are not Sinhala Buddhists but misguided madmen in the guise of Sinhalese Buddhists and there racist action will only bring disgrace to Buddhism and it’s followers. Those responsible must be severely dealt with according to provisions of the law.

      I agree. If the culprits get away then we can forget rule of law and good governance. Not that I very much believed in the promises.

    “These are not Sinhala Buddhists but misguided madmen in the guise of Sinhalese Buddhists”

    This is precisely what the Sinhala/Buddhists do. By nature Sinhala/Buddhists are racists what else can you expect from them?

    Therefore the most important issue is how soon can we liberate Buddhism and Buddha’s teaching from Sinhala/Buddhists.

    “Those responsible must be severely dealt with according to provisions of the law.”

    You are not allowed to severely deal with Sinhala/Buddhists, its their prerogative and no one in his/her right mind would dare to arrest, remand and punish a Sinhala/Buddhists.

    Please just forget about catching the perpetrators leave alone punishing them.

      ” Therefore the most important issue is how soon can we liberate Buddhism and Buddha’s teaching from Sinhala/Buddhists.”

      Is that the reason why there are hardly any Tamil Buddhists in Sri Lanka, despite Buddha Ghosa was Tamil or Originated from Tamil Nadu?

      So, Sinhala Buddhism is NOT Buddhism. Many say it is racism. Sinhala Buddhists may have killed Tamil Buddhists as well, if any remained, during Tamil Riots.

    These racial thugs must be tried under the newly proposed hate speech law. Then they can be sentenced even without the actual damage that they tried to do but were prevented by the timely action of law enforcement authorities. This site, being a highly targeted venue by racists, must be equipped with recording equipment including voice recording on a continuous (365/24) basis.

      They are not going to use the bill as you are asking.

      Another Draconian bill! Another Sinhala Intellectual’s sneaky design to harass minorities. The First person could go for prison, using the current government’s status of the mind, is Northern Province Chief Minister CV. He is the one viewed as the racist by the Prime Minister Ranil Mahata. On the Jan 8th night, Ranil Mahata gave promise to all racist that they will be protected.

      Could somebody can bring a bill when a minority principal talk about the problems in his school, on the invited conference, to a Prime minister, and if the Prime minister says to him “shut up and sit down”, then the prime minister has to go for two years prison? What would have happened to the principal if he had not sat down, as he did on that occasion? He could have been arrested as the LTTEr. White van is not in the Ranil Matha Palanaya. He could have been beaten just like the Pakirati from France because he is an LTTEr. Jeyakumari was arrested for asking her child be released from the Royal Chitantha government running secret slave camps. Now Suresh, TNA MP, has said he has some evidence of the Chitanta Government’s secret torture chambers. Tamils suspecting Brother Prince was the muthalali of these chambers. On the election night, to get the Temple tree house for him, Ranil Mahatha promised not to prosecute anybody in the Royal family for any war crime or corruption. So he is just simply dismissing that there is nothing like that. (Is somebody like Ananthi’s Husband Sashi was so easily finished off with a bullet? Don’t tell these sweet bed time stories!). Ranil mahatha is the one refused to sign ICC accord because his people have to be prosecuted otherwise. Now, he is the one bringing the new draconian racist slur bill. Only the Tamils and the Muslims are going to be prosecuted under this bill. All other Sinhala Racist intellectuals have Ranil’s promise for impunity.

      Because this bill, beyond the purpose of passing that is to use against the minorities, it has no teeth against the Sinhala Intellectuals. They are protected by the Racist Sinhala Buddhist constitution. Under the constitution, the Buddhism has to be pampered against the other religions. In a competitive, democratic society how do you protect a religion, from the competition of the other religions? Only way is to pass laws like the one now they are milling and prosecute the minorities as they are being racist. .

      If they are honest in ready to treat all religion equal, they might have brought an Amendment 18.5A to the constitution before 19A because that is more important to protect the people’s lives. Why no secular government? Why there is minister for Buddhism? Or even for another religion? Isn’t it to keep the people divided along the religious line?

      International community was against the PTA. It is against the Emergency regulation. So the new Royal government has to have a way to arrest the Tamils, which is the so called LTTErs. That is the only purpose of this law. That is the only place it will be used.

        You have raised some very good points although planted in such a harangue! However, I didn’t know CV had made any hate speech!! This is news to me. Perhaps, this is because I am not fully informed of the proposed hate speech law. If you are informed of it please enlighten the readership of this so-called hidden agenda behind it. (Alternately, Could Colombo Page publish the proposed law once it is available?).

        I agree, this type of laws can infringe upon other civil rights of the citizenry. However, it is no reason to stop enacting a legal framework to prohibit threatening or insulting speeches targeting certain sections of the community; especially threats and insults based on ethnicity, religion, etc. Freedom of speech is safeguarded by the Constitution and it is the right of the Supreme Court to ensure that right is preserved, and new laws are bounded by a well-defined framework.

    This is a clear indication that the crowd that tried do destroy this site, were not Sinhala Buddhists but Fanatics pretending to be Sinhala Buddhists. What does it matter to, True Buddhists if this site existed or not? When Buddha preached his Philosophy there had been over sixty odd other Religious beliefs. There was no attempt by Buddha or any of his followers to destroy other faiths as false.

    What gain any Buddhist would achieve by acts of vandalism other than contempt from all. Police at last seem to have woken up to protect than just be mere spectators as before. Trust they will not only protect but will apply the Law as well soon, arresting them immediately, because there is no further Political intervention. Then none of this Religious conflicts will occur, when the miscreants know they will have to face Justice in the future.

      “This is a clear indication that the crowd that tried do destroy this site, were not Sinhala Buddhists but Fanatics pretending to be Sinhala Buddhists.”

      They are indeed Sinhala/Buddhists. Sinhalese or Buddhists have nothing to do with vandalism, destruction, violence, ….. etc

      Sinhala/Buddhism (a new identity forged in the late 19th and early 20th century)is nasty cocktail of parochial political forces.

    Why this news does not appear in so called #1 news site in SL, DAILYMIRROR.LK??
    We saw these kind of racial block out in Lankadeepa, Derana and Swarnawahini during Darga town and some other attacks by racist monks and racist sinhalese thugs.
    We can conclude just SINHALESE ARE HUMAN MEAT EATING CANNIBALS.

    There is no moslem holy site there. Even for some muslims that particular place is by some infidel moslems. The original site there is a buddhist holy site.

    Ranil also same like MR but he will cunningly act that he is a democratic. He will not take any action against because election is nearing. But this time he will learn a lesson from North and East.

    Timely intervention by the police is certainly a joke. Wonder what type of police force we have. Didn’t they anticipate this coming, after the enjoining order was issued. Didn’t they put plain cloth officers to investigate whether something is brewing. I have been mentioning on several occasions that our police is corrupt and something need to be done. Even if they arrest someone, we have corrupt legal officers who do not pay any taxes coming to their rescue. Please do something with these two corrupt institutions.

    If the court order is not heeded what the police should do? Everytime if they bathe them the bowsers should be full and kept ready 24 x 7 right round the year!

    Majority of Sri Lankas, including Buddhists, Tamil, Muslims and Christians has given the mandate to the current government under President MS and Prime Minister RW, to eradicate such unethical behavior. It’s high time the authorities including the police department take serious actions against organizations such as Sihala Ravaya. I believe there are certain elements from the politically defeated lot, behind this incident to disturb the currently prevailing peace and freedom of the country.
