President And BBS Echo Statements About Dayan

President Mahinda Rajapaksa who in a recent Al Jazeera interview charged that his former Ambassador to the UN in Geneva was now fulfilling the political agendas of a powerful NGO, was echoing the sentiments expressed not long ago by the Sinhala hardline Bodu Bala Sena organisation.

The President and the BBS

President Rajapaksa on being confronted with the text of a comment written by former Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Dayan Jayatilleka, his personal political appointment during the Al Jazeera interview shot back that the ex-Ambassador was saying political things because he was now a member of a NGO, a charge Jayatilleka denies.

A few weeks ago in a full length serial feature in the Global Mail, the author Eric Ellis wrote that Bodu Bala Sena General Secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara who called Jayatilleka a “mad, bad person” who “gets funding from various people, Christian and other groups, to speak against Buddha, with NGOs.

“So Dayan Jayatilleka is mad? I ask Gnanasara. “A very bad man he is,” Gnanasara says. “They are funded. You look at their background. Are they Buddhist? There are some groups created by the church and they want to destroy Buddhist culture. His (Jayatilleka’s) background is not Buddhist, Milinda is not Buddhist,” Ellis wrote in his Sri Lanka feature.

The statements by the Bodu Bala Sena and the President on Jayatilleka’s involvement with a NGO raises questions about campaign of misinformation regarding Government critics.

      They seem to be not knowing that world is looking at us.
      Dayan is well known to western media than our president or anyone else right at the moment. President was not seen not many interviews carried out by foreign journalists during the recent few years. DJ^s book and his articles are known to many journalists in Europe. I know this since there are ones known to me question me about DJ ^s articles and lanken updates again and again.

      Here, the picture gives us a better picture about our problems of the day. BBS is a violent to any sane one who closely studied it in the recent months. They attacked verbally and some times physically not thinking about being in saffron robes not once several dozens of times – there were video evidence that monks were on stone throwing (violative, vandalistic modes) while country’s police sitting next to them as onlookers. So, here again – they are sitting with country^s highest leaders being on discussions….. this is the fate of our nation today. They are the ones who should be blamed for appalling situation.

    President MR is a known liar. He lies in the same stinking sh.t as the alcoholic monk Gnanasara. His track record of lying and revenge is so great that MR has lost all credibility. He performed like an apprehended pickpocket at the Al Jazeera interview

      At least President could castrate this Ghanasara not allowing him to harm poor muslim folks. Ghnasara alike men are found only in high crime prisons like Guantanamo, as everyone watched it, BBS was seen as President^s supportive underground religious forces.

    Looks like Dayan is in ‘deep shit’ with the ‘deep state’. If Gramsci was around. He’d agree.

    I am no fan of the inconsistent and unprincipled Dayan J but on what basis does Ven. Galabodaathe Gnanasara Thero dismiss DJ as “mad and bad” This regular kassipu-drinking un-buddhistic priest – from all what we can gather – is the modern version of ill-famed Buddarakhita Thero of 1950s. Who knows, he might even cause a repetition of the tragic events of late 1950s here.

    What a sorry and helpless figure DJ has been pushed to say “I do not think that President Rajapaksa would say something he knows to be untrue” He is still in mortal fear of directly criticising MR or GR. President R not to say “something he knows to be untrue”??? What a double-tongued Affidavit about a man whose mendacity is now universally notorious.

    “General Secretary Galagodaaththe Gnanasara who called Jayatilleka a “mad, bad person” who “gets funding from various people, Christian and other groups, to speak against Buddha, with NGOs.”

    What perverted logic is this? Gnanasara is only displaying that it is he who is the “mad, bad, person” and, what’s more, has a history to prove it.

      You are dead right.

      Dayan J is caught by pissu ballos. I have no idea about him being right or wrong. I like sometimes his articles since they at least sound somewhat professional. But his affinity to Premadasa regime is yet a puzzle to me.

      In worst scenario, Ranil and his wife should better leave this jara country and live exile. They are both well respected, educated, civilized, uncorrupted politicians I have ever seen in the island. His wife is a well educated lectuer, NOBODY would be able to disgrace them both for their knowledge. Right at the moment, only BALLOS can join ballos to run the country. Sajith has all these qualifications coming from a family of that sort – Junior premadasa would never be different to the senior who took the lives of 50 K of lanken youth in 89 insurgency

        “Ranil and his wife should better leave this jara country and live exile. “
        His fear is UNHCR where he lied, and to top it he has blood on both hands Sinhalese and Tamils.
        He is no different from a footballer screaming me me me.
        His occupation is chasing ambulances and now it’s turning out to be one way street.

    Eric Elis has written a lot of ‘Bull Shit’. If the situation in Sri Lanka is as bad as Elis portrays, how come this government won all election since 2005, convincingly. Apparently the government losing the North PC proves two points: One, people in the North are against the government. Two, election process is trustworthy and honest. If that’s the case on election do we need to talk about other ‘Bull Shit’ in Elis write-ups.

    As for Dayan, he may not be in a NGO payroll. But one need not be in a payroll to be classified as a worker of an NGO. I would classify any man or woman who defend NGO promoting neocolonialists agenda and get paid direct or by subtle means for it is a NGO worker. Dayan is just one of hundreds like them. Ex CJ Shirani is another to name one.

      This Bugger thinks that the Election process is trustworthy and honest.

      Why Not, Why Not? See the number of Cast ballots put aside, which they claim has been counted. This discovery was due to an accident. What about where they perfected the maneuvering without leaving any trace? Whom are they trying to bluff except the Pseudo Patriots.

        Yes Gamini, this kind of idiots are the majority in Sl.

        Now they would feel that President just returned from a very successful tour. No matter what he failed during that trip, not being able to even give a good talk to Aljaseera – this is the view of majority GONTHADIYAS in SL. They are not better than to the average illiterates folks in poor black african countries.

      Patriot,

      Are you another Tea server holding Ambassador type guy.

      When NGO’s are registered, they have to submit the Board of Directors and their Executive staff. It is not a “Hambanthota Bulath Kade” type business or like the bunch of Parliament “Eluwas” Goats that could be bought over the counter like type……or like the Rice Packet Voters.

      Harak mudalali loves the under bellies and think others also love same, after wearing the signature White sarong and the Satakaya to dupe the public.

      Let the crab dance until water boils. Then we could see the fun.

      GLP here he comes…..next on line.

    There is an element of truth in what the President and the BBS said of Mr Dayan jayatilleke’s behaviour.
    Mr DJ has held a number of diplomatin appoitments and was, at one time, removed from a posting due to performance failures. Mr DJ and the likes have enjoyed life as diplmats in affluent countries supported by the peasant taxpayers of Sri Lanka. Their contributions in return to the population is miniscule.
    Mr DJ and the likes have now taken up cudgels against the common people of Sri Lanka with blant disregard to the ground situation and politico/social imperatives of our leaders. Hving enjoyed diplomatic lives all their life, Mr DJ and his likes are now preaching “good governance” that meets with the ever changing values of western countries.

    Gandasara is mad, bad and working for a Norwegian NGO. He has a background of alcoholism and schizophrenic behaviour. Wonder why Ellis had to interview a mad, bad man. MR has a few bad, mad men in his government. He calls it democracy or should it be called an asylum?

    The whole world knows that our President has lied to the entire world not once but many times. Its amazing to see him standing up at the UN and lying. A head of a state lying like this brings all of us Sri Lankans down.

    Dayan ardently defended the Rajapaksa Regime to disregard human rights of the Sri Lanakan people, on the pretext of defending the sovereignty of the government. He knew well the governments cannot abuse the governed in the name of the sovereignty. He was intellectually dishonest and it was expected from him as a paid diplomat. But once out of the service Rajapaksha don’t want Dayan to assume his intellectual functions back.

    But I can forecast, that Dayan will adopt and find lots of arguments to support Mahinda when real confrontation with TNA begins.
