Rise Of BBS Is A Direct Result Of Triumphalism

By Vishwamithra1984 –

“The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.

Mahinda GotaThis has been told, not once, not twice or thrice but an umpteen number of times. The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) organization is not a fresh or novel manifestation of a particular sectorial thinking or a by-product of yesterday’s emotions. The character, substance and inner content of the driving force behind these civil organizations- although there is nothing remotely civil about this kind of groupings- is a tremendous sense of inexplicable yet remarkably acute inferiority felt all along the storied history of the Sinhalese Buddhist people. The style adopted by the Bodu Bala Sena might appear as novel, violent, militant and even sophisticated to an untrained and unequipped academic but that style is deeply embedded in the troubled psyche of the Sinhalese people, especially of the Buddhist kind. The Sinhalese Buddhists in Sri Lanka are experiencing a feeble feeling of inferiority despite being a great majority among those who claim the country as their motherland. Time and time again, historians have failed to render any valid and legitimate reason as to why and how an ethnic majority schooled and nurtured by a non-violent and non-discriminatory religion, is indulging in macabre killings and wanton vandalism. A malicious and a delusional mind is being portrayed as a superior kind, exposing complete absence of intellectual reasoning and prudent inquiry.

When politics invades an ordinary mind, a mind that has been entrapped by myths and legends of the past and held captive by screaming rhetoric of the twenty first century vernacular and backed by deafening silence of both the clergy and lay leadership of the country’s majority, the shame of being held under colonial serfdom tries to find solace in a glorifying sense of superiority because that glorified superiority follows a ‘war-victory’ after a grueling thirty-year physical battle with their sworn enemies of history- the Northern Tamils; that gives them a different DNA, an identity for this Colombo-accustomed middle class that is struggling to compete with the English-speaking, Colombo-educated elite. That new ID has provided this emerging middle class of Sri Lanka not only with a false sense of patriotism, it has also provided them with a moral (or immoral) proviso to be militant against an unarmed civilian community whose only sin has been their being born to a different race or ethnic group. Always intrigued by a new sense of importance and self-glory, this middle-class is perpetually in search of an identity and gives moral, psychological and eventually, material support to fringe organizations that propagate and sustain the significance of commanding supremacy in the echelons of societal power.

That middle class is the dynamic force that sustains fringe organizations such as Bodu Bala Sena and Ravana Balaya. Some members of them being university-educated, they gain acceptance in society more than others whose only daily needs are limited to making a decent living with their children in school and making an extraordinary effort to make ends meet, so to speak. And that segment of that lower middle class is an easy marketplace for vitriolic politics that is principally based on the supremacy of the Sinhala race and Buddhism. In addition to making this crucial segment of the population getting engrossed in a socio-cultural issue which anyway is quite sharp enough to reach explosive dimensions provided they are fanned with the necessary ‘patriotic’ rhetoric flames, the distraction it does to this class of people from the daily struggle of keeping ends meet in an economic atmosphere of spiraling living costs, is quite great. That ‘distraction’ factor was most cleverly used by Fidel Castro in Cuba when the Cuban economy kept struggling to stay afloat after the pipeline of massive aid from the then Soviet Union dried up.

The current administration has been successful, at least up to the present time, in keeping the people engrossed in socio-cultural issues such as imaginary Muslim domination in the business world, equating the local Muslim population to the international terrorist organizations such as the Taliban and Al Qaida etc. and thereby throwing a sense of fear and suspicion based purely on race and religion. When such racial and religious suspicions and fears start playing in a people who have been traditionally found to be gripped by an inferiority complex while being an overwhelming majority inside their own country, organizations such as Bodu Bala Sena and Ravana Balaya whose very organization-title names are meant to be inspiring and provoking while sustaining a false sense of pride, aura and glory among that target population group, aided by superior mob-oratorical skills as evidenced in the speeches made by the leading persona who is appearing in saffron robes,  the canvass gets extremely smudgy and unreadable for the unsuspecting and un-probing mind.

Although the birth of organizations such as Bodhu Bala Sena and Ravana Balaya at first sight, looks as a logical juncture in the evolution of the Sinhalese-Buddhist patriotism, especially after the ‘war-victory’ against the ‘Tigers’ but when one follows the development of these organizations, their inexorable march towards a demented sense of dominance and the very vernacular that is being used by their leading persona who is garbed in Saffron robes, are frightening. Their behavior makes even a notorious Parliamentarian like Mervyn Silva look like an amateur. A reasonable man or woman might cringe at the very use of the language used by these religious ruffians who appear in Saffron robes, but when taken in the context of the overall transformation that our society has gone through over the last decade or so, our people have got used to this uncivil and indecent language. Stated quite bluntly, the language used by the notorious leading voice of the BBS is not the language used even by any lay leader in the country. It is not only tolerated by a great majority of the followers of the movement but in fact, the absence of such vitriolic language would be treated as a shortcoming on the part of the deliverer of the message.  The language and phraseology attributed to the leaders of the BBS are no more innocuous than a street thug dictating to his petty gang reminding one of a third rate hooligan demanding attention through words cascading from him like hate-ridden provocations and threats.

But the real question is not whether these unholy provocateurs keep badgering an unsuspecting segment of our population. It is the vociferous approval rendered unto them by quasi-racist political organizations such as Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) and the silent nodding that they receive from the highest in the land. The euphoria that followed the war victory and the ugly signs of triumphalism encouraged and fed by the those who gain direct benefits from such a destructive social force, contributed heavily to this resultant chaos that was stage-managed in Aluthgama a couple of weeks ago. All these signals and messages indicate one thing and only one thing- a carefully planned and plotted design is in place with only one objective in play: The next Presidential Elections and how to gain the maximum advantage from a gullible voter who has already been set up by a campaign run and sustained by pseudo-patriotism.

So the indications are obvious, only if one attempts and desires to be objective without being overly ‘patriotic’. The aiding and abetting rendered by the powers that be, to these elements who dwell on the fringes of the political spectrum are beyond dispute; its nourishing and nursing is systematic and well-orchestrated. Willy nilly the voter, the majority Sinhalese Buddhist segment of the population, has opted to be prey to such a diabolical scheme and even a physical demise of a Buddhist monk done at the whims and request of the plotters could serve well for the advance of this unholy cause of religious and racial division. Nothing could be ruled out when a determined set of rulers is hell-bent on retaining their power. At that time the BBS might well be an expendable tool.

    Very true………but why insult the SB majority only? The same trend of thought can also be used to discredit the minorities. Truth is, if a large majority middle-class like the BS’s are struggling so much, then it is in the interests of the Gosl (an imperative) together with the minority expertise, to help them. If the UN can come in and help this poor struggling middle-class gain some stability, this will be a good thing also. Hope the UN will help, rather than take their chance to invade and divide.

    It might still be that a lot has been done by Gosl to ensure communal relations, but there are indeed jihadist elements globally. It can’t be too far from the truth that they function in SL also. Also, about the the Northern Tamils – we all know about the Eelam myth in that one.

      “but there are indeed jihadist elements globally”. No one disagrees with this and the motive for their existence is crystal clear. However without evidence to point Sri Lankan Muslims are somehow involved and their motive, you are only propagating the very myth with BBS et al. use in their propaganda.

        When the culture of Arabia operates and thrives in Sri Lanka almost exclusively away from the majority culture of the land(or any other land on earth), and this Arabian culture includes Jihad-Force if threatened in any way, then there is something/everything wrong about this judiciousness.

          Ramona Theresa Fernando: You do a great disservice to our Muslim brethren in SL who, by and large, do not share the extremes of other Arabian cultures. If there are excesses (by any religious group), then we as a sovereign state have the right to create the tools to ensure fair and equitable good order. Stirring up base emotions and fear is NOT the way to go about it. These are early days yet, but our fellow (Muslim) citizens have shown great restraint by not falling to the bait that evil men around us are laying to trap the unwary. Let us start with the ancient Buddhist practice of claiming a piece of land by the simple expedient of placing a statue of the Buddha or planting a bo-tree and declaring the area to be ‘sacred’………tell me again the meaning of ‘sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander’

            Spring Koha,
            I stated (before you did), that Gosl should have other civilized mechanisms of dealing with religious and cultural extremists rather than in outdated violent and fascist ways. I quoted examples from the way the Malaysians handled their minorities.

            If other Arab cultures are more extreme in other places, that is because they are doing it on their own indigenous soil. Previous to Islam in Sri Lanka was an already established ancient religion, Buddhism, that belonged to the majority of our land.

      Ramona, the UN are NOT going to ‘invade and divide’ (we are already divided, anyway). The UN are doing what they are expected to by their charter. We signed up to this organisation willingly and enjoyed the benefits…….but now we’d like them to turn a blind eye to some unexplained business we all got up to. We need all the help we can get to bury the dead bodies from the last war (the stench is unbearable) before the bodies from the next war start piling up.

      Rise of BBS or any kind of radical segments are seen when the society is made north korean like ( agree with any thing coming from MEGALOMANIAC rulers), not counter arguing, but stay lethargic and indifferent.

      Today, BBS CLEARLY makes hate speeches of 1000000000000000000000 of magnitude. But RAJAPAKSHE police ( make it CLEAR not lanken politice) MAKE PUBLIC statements that BBS makes no provocative statements.

      This man Ajith Rohana Police spokesman- should be either part of BBS/Rajapakshe or totally abused by Gota… directly.. to the very same manner, Mervin^s son^s incident Army officer as a victim was put down by the regime, INSTEAD the people expected the other way around shouldhave the case.

      Ajith Rohana should be THE PERSON – that entire Srilanken folks hates most today. He the bitch’s son calling himself a Lawyer to ignore and interpret things in favour of megalomaniac state is a KARMA.. ditta dammawedaneeya will check this out soon is my wish.

    ‘Rise Of BBS Is A Direct Result Of Triumphalism’

    I’d agree with Ranga Jayasuriya that it is a direct result of Islamic fundamentalism. Have you not noticed the change in dress code?

      Paul

      What happened in 1958, attack on Tamils?

      Islamic dress code, Saree of that time or Tamil dress code of saree at that time?

      No.
      It is Simply Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” racism, based on lies and imaginations of para-monk Mahanama of Mahawnasa Fame-Notoriety.

        That was the direct result of the attacks on Sinhalese settlers’ villages in the North Central province as the Tamils then argued was part of their homelamd. The Sinhalese wer5e settled on Crown Land and that no -one had the right to attack and kill men women and children who were given the right to settle there. Remember this was in the North Central Province and not in the Vanni.

      Park, Islamic fundamentalism – simply said, is following the fundamentals of Islam, which causes no harm nor any differential treatment of non-Muslims. It is merely going back to basics. In this day and age of misplaced values, caused through temptation, greed and craving, it becomes more so important to stop and remind ourselves of who we are, our purpose in life and where are we going.

      What you see in those black loosely fitted women attire, (sometimes with face cover) is their own choice to dress modestly, without exposing themselves to men’s glances, be it anyone – Muslim or non-Muslim. The only people they can reveal themselves in normal clothing are when amongst themselves, as in women only gathering, or in the presence of very closely related males, as in their father, brother and son, son-in-law, grandson and such. This is what Islam teaches us. So you take offense to that. Something which you hardly know anything about.

      You need to understand that Islam is a complete way of life, not just confined to religious observances only. Amongst some of those values are personal hygiene and cleanliness at all times, modesty in dress code for both men and women, maintaining friendship and cordiality amongst all neighbors, friends and relations. The list goes on and on, and includes protocols on marriage, divorce, children upbringing, respect for and treatment of parents, laws of inheritance, the whole gamut of public asnd private life.

      If only you would care to form your own opinion by doing your own research, without blindly parroting what other’s say, I am sure you will have new respect for Muslims and look at them differently. Of course as individuals they will have their own faults and shortcomings, but please never attribute that to their religion – Islam.

        If Islam is a complete way of life, it then takes precedence over national laws. The US and UK are discovering this belatedly. I have great respect for the Sufis, I admire them immensely.

        Most of the peace, friendliness, equality and so on that you explain is countered by reading the Koran where peace and equality is found alongside incredible violence and cruelty.

          In all those instances that you have referenced, are what journalists have written, (except your reference to Quran – which I will deal with separately). Those journalists are people who can write anything, which at most times are nonsensical and can never be accepted as the Gospel truth. Sensational – yes, but factual – leaves much to be desired. Their concerns and thoughts can vary from the sublime to the ridiculous, depending on their mind-set, affiliations, motives, agendas, personal ambitions, interpretations, religious bias, animosities – whatever, if you read between the lines, you can get their message. They write either in favor or against (critique) their subjects. That is not the ideal yardstick to measure the truth of a particular religion such as Islam. Some of those writings even suggested foreign based Islamic militants using SL soil to launch attacks on neighboring countries, or, claimed their very presence in SL, are all figments of their imagination with no proven truth. This only foments misplaced fear, anger and outrage amongst the people. Ultimately no one saw any such forces rise up against the BBS tyrannical forces (mob violence) attack poor innocent Muslims in Beruwela and Aluthgama. Those affected were just picking up the pieces and were climbing the ladder of success. They were just hurled ferociously to the ground, for no fault of theirs. Even now, after all that has happened to them, they are still blamed for causing the violence. Where is justice, I ask?

          You mention that Quran teaches, quote ‘peace and equality is found alongside incredible violence and cruelty’. The fact is, the Quran is not the only source used for Islamic jurisprudence, but Quran and Hadith (authentic guidance taken from holy Prophet’s lifestyle and his practices) together combined, i.e. God’s Law combined with Prophet’s practices, is what constitutes Islamic Law. You need to understand the fact that by nature, man is born with many strengths (good qualities) and weaknesses (bad qualities) alike. Islamic law is very strict in punishment when it comes to serving justice, as it is used as a deterrent to stop criminality by keeping it to a minimum, preventing repeats and thus effectively serve fair justice to affected victims. This has proved effective by maintaining low crime rates, and less crowded prisons. However to an outsider it may look cruel, living with all these so called ‘democratic values’. Those rulings will appear too severe, but is in their statute, which cannot be amended, modified, changed to suit the whims and fancies of individuals sitting in judgment. Of course the Emir or the King can decided to pardon or waive off the punishment. The crime committed must be proved any reasonable doubt before such drastic rulings are passed. There are some similarities to such punishments as we know it, but on a much lower scale. The death penalty (never carried out in this country for what, is it for last 25 years?), serving of jail terms – either in solitary confinement, rigorous imprisonment or in remand custody, house arrest, etc., where criminals are assured of three free meals a day, custody protection and a cell to sleep, which they rather prefer than living outside, where they would be compelled to fend for theirs and family livelihood. Now you decide which is better for society.

            The journalists may have different motives as you say but so does everyone who posts here including us. We all know the BBS caused death and destruction in Aluthgama, nobody is denying it.

            I said I admired the Sufis because they are well known for being non-violent and peaceful people. I believe though that some Muslims consider them not Muslim at all.

            You only have to read the newspapers to see how Islam (genuine or not) is practiced around the world. Only yesterday a pregnant Muslim woman was to be hanged for ‘changing her religion’. All over the world there are Muslim terrorists, fundamentalists and suicide bombers causing terrible suffering and all of them thinking that God is on their side. All Muslims are not terrorists but most terrorists are Muslim, and proud of it. So you decide, how can it be good for society?

      Paul, I don’t know how old you are, but I am very, very, old and I have watched our fellow Sri Lankans confidently changing to the very appropriate dress that many are now wearing. I only wish that more of our Sinhalese would adopt the appropriate Arya-Sinhala dress, that many, but not enough, have adopted over the years. Let us be confident and tolerant as Sri Lankans to let our people choose what they wish to wear without rushing to be judgmental. Let me quickly say that I will draw the line at nudity in public and appropriate dress for all our places of worship – otherwise, live and let live. Long!

      Paul (and others)

      Look at the picture of the Medamulana Brothers. One in very appropriate dress with a distinguished kurakkan satakaya and the other in thuppahi dress and tie (like an old fashioned brown sahib?). Both wear a voulla underneath. They are both smiling and at ease. Let us be likewise with each other and not worry unnecessarily about our dress (as long as we are not naked and smell of old sweat).

    Vishwamithra1984,

    Good analysis.

    I agree with you ‘A malicious and a delusional mind is being portrayed as a superior kind, exposing complete absence of intellectual reasoning and prudent inquiry.’

    In the short term I can see no solution to Sri Lankan ills. What can we do when our genes are infact impaired.

    Please find below a link to an article in the FT of even date that complements what Vishwamithra has written.

    http://www.ft.lk/2014/06/25/government-rushes-in-where-angels-fear-to-tread/

    We have much to think about and help awaken the people to the peril that has already enveloped them. Unless the people realize that the political system and culture that has taken root, in very decisive, premeditated and well orchestrated steps is uprooted lock, stock and parallel, there will be no escape.

    A new constitution has to be promulgated that is not only high sounding, but is also simple and sans loopholes. This will re-establish the roots to anchor this country on sound principles that no politician can breach, This constitution should provide the guidelines for a process that will elect the best men we have- well educated,cultured and of proven ability- to political office at various levels of government. The media should be liberated from the clutches of the government. This would mean that the government will not be in the business of running any type of media. Hate mongering should be made an offence equal to treason in this country and should be clearly and precisely defined. Institutions have to be freed from the death grip of politicians and made to operate according to the law. The people in this country have been reduced to the status of scampering castrated mice over the years. Their sovereignty has to be re-instated and made supreme.

    The time to do these is fast approaching. The next presidential and parliamentary elections are the opportunity to do so. Let us not miss it and pay a further price for our gullibility, if not stupidity.

    Dear Ramano/Paul,

    Why always cast aspersions on the dress code and tie up Sri Lankan Muslims to Jihadists.

    If there be Jihadists in Sri Lanka, why on earth can’t our so called Intelligence Unit and the Special forces identify and arrest them or even killing them off,if they so desire.We boast of eliminating the most brutal terrorist organization in the world.Why go behind innocent women and children with brute force of the government ably assisted by the Criminal defence secretary. I consider both of you possess some sort of intellect and why can’t you for heaven sake identify and realise this basic factor without clamouring Jihadist, Jihadist like our famous joker Champika. Please reason out.

    With regard to the dress code of Muslims, why cant you people see the difference of even the Buddhist ladies who were modestly dressed in those days with Saree without much exposure. See the trend now with mini skirts, jeans, shorts and what not. Why always go behind the women who opt to protect their modesty. What is the hell is wrong with you guys. I can understand that some not all monks, wish to have the women dressed explosively so that they can get some satisfaction looking at them, as they are deprived of indulging with women. I emphasize, IT IS ONLY A HANDFUL OF MONKS, still we have some decent monks who do not come out of their shell purely due to fear.

    Please pause for a moment and ponder, without jumping to conclusions, like the goons of BBS and also sadly the GOSL.

      Ansar,
      Trouble is this alien Arabia culture has the grave tendency of operating within itself, and finds dealing with others immoral and of lesser-intellect. And even if there are others that don’t follow the Shia practices, the blue-print is still there and honored by them.

      On top of that, this Arabia culture has the potential of minting money also. Take away peoples normal rights to operate within a modern democratic system, (e.g. women’s rights to dress accordingly in a hot humid climate), then their voice is silenced, and money- Oil Money of what the Americans invented and discovered- will flow as a blessing to these communities from Arabia.

      And on top of that, this Arabian culture exemplifies Jihadist-Force if threatened (hatals have been called for), but most have also called for dialog, and that is a good thing.

    Trouble with some commentators is that they go off the tangent. Or are they taking any and every opportunity to vilify Islam and humiliate Muslims.

    Remember this topic had nothing to do with Islam or Muslims but yet we find people using words like ‘Arabic culture’ for the cause of the conflict while another who confesses he gets his information on Islam and Muslims from the media is actually advising a Muslim to do just that! This is ridiculous.

    If I wanted to learn Buddhism or Christianity I would go to the genuine sources of the faiths. If I followed the media on the Irish ‘problem’ in the UK, I should be calling Catholics terrorists and if I were elsewhere and read about the antics of the BBS and Sihala Ravaya I would imagine Buddhism was a faith that promoted terrorism against all ‘unbelievers’ meaning non ‘Sinhala Buddhists’. After all I remember rather vividly reading a footnote in article written by the brilliant journalist Tisaranee Gunasekera quoting the Mahavamsa saying the ‘unbelievers (non Sinhala Buddhists) are lower than animals and it is no sin to kill them’. So there you are. Would I be faulted if I were to say this is what Gnanasara thero implied in his inflammatory speech at Dharga Town which resulted in murder and mayhem.

    And then there is the issue of ‘Maithri Drusthika’…which I think mean ‘filthy enemy heathens’ Like the Jews call non Jews ‘gentiles’ human rubbish created to serve the Jews according to Israeli/Zionist Rabbi Owaida Yossef.

    If Jihadists are currently operating in SL anyone think that BBS or anyone still remains? or Gnasara can roam freely in SL streets?

    Arabic culture is not Islam

    New culture of women is show the waist line as much as possible and openly show one part of br__st while show the rest through transparent saree,in weddings or functions and pose for photos which to be published in facebook with proud husband nearby perfectly OK for SL men, while covering their body entirely with a lose fitted attire is a sin in SL culture?

    So SB says that muslims are terrorists and during the war they were friends including the Lafir, muthalif…including …..I don’t say myself…

    Colonel A.F. Lafir (Wiki: PWV, RWP, RSP, SF (last name also spelled Laffeer; died July 19, 1996 †) was a Sri Lankan army officer who was the Commanding Officer of the 1st Special Forces Regiment. Colonel Lafir played a major role in the formation and development of the Sri Lanka Army Special Forces Regiment from the original Combat Tracker Team. He was awarded the Parama Weera Vibhushanaya, the highest award for valour of the Sri Lanka Army.)

    or Tuan Nizam Muthaliff (Wiki: On conclusion of his studies, his desire to protect the unity of his motherland made him join the Sri Lanka Army as a cadet officer in June 1986.)

    If SB have said this before we could have joined the other side of the WAR and have settled…it was late and we never thought that Sb is going to be this much of thankless..Very much ashamed of what we have done for the “Motherland”. This land is not only for SB but for us. We have a place as much as you do.

    Everyone came in the middle, if this land is not for the new comers then people came with vijaya…also should leave as always native vedda claims…Apologizing to native vedda, we have ruined your own place…

      Let us not forget that few Sri Lankan Buddhists are like Gnanasara thera. Let us also hope that most os the Sri Lankan Muslims love their motherland as much as Col. Lafir and Tuan Muthaliff.

      However one cannot ignore that Wahhabism has been raising it’s ugly head in Sri Lanka and that ‘Thaliban’ have been active in our land as confirmed by Interpol just last week. It is also reported elsewhere TODAY that the US Embassy has been monitoring Muslim ‘activists’ in Sri Lanka for over 10 years. If this is not kept under control we are bound to pay a heavier price than we did with the Tamil terrorism. The government seems to kept mum in order not to enrage the public. Wahhabi activity is not ONLY against the ‘infidel’, but also against fellow Muslims with somewhat different beliefs, as have been seen in Iraq, Syria etc. and in Sri Lanka too.

    What if the Australian Aborigines start deporting all those who have settled in their Land, after the arrival of Captain Cook?

    What if the ‘Red Indians’ start deporting all those who have settled on their Lands in the present USA and Canada?

    What if the Veddahs (Descendants of Balangoda Man) start deporting all later Immigrants, like the Sinhalas, Tamils and Others?

    So the Sinhala Buddhists, or any other Ethno/Religious Combo, who think that this Land belongs to them, and to them only, should think seriously of going back to Africa to start again, because that was their ‘Place of Origin’!

    TO ALL OUR MUSLIM FELLOW CITIZENS (and indeed others who share this blessed island with us, particularly those of the minorities – note however that officially there are NO minorites as they we abolished by our Prez), bear with us as we try to work out how to rid our island paradise of this current infestation of evil snakes who are trying to infect us all with their poison. They are a formidable lot (some even have academic degrees – but not a degree of common sense) and are determined to mislead the innocent and the gullible amongst us. We MUST NOT let these bastards grind us into an inevitable hate-fest. Deja vu is NOT an option!
