Several Buddha Statues Attacked In Mawanella: Police Arrest Two Suspects

The Police have arrested two youth in Mawanella for allegedly damaging several Buddha statues in the area last few days creating religious tensions.

One suspect named M. Ashfar was handed over to the Police by villagers. Both suspects are expected to be produced before the Magistrate today.

The Police are yet to establish if the attack was an organized act of violence to create religious tensions among the Sinhalese and Muslim communities in the area or an isolated incident. Investigations are also underway to ascertain if the two suspects have connections with any extremist group.

Issuing a statement on the matter, UNP Chairman Minister Kabir Hashim condemned the acts of violence committed against places of worship in Mawanella.

“As soon as I heard about the recent attacks I instructed the police to investigate and arrest those responsible,” the UNP Chairman also said, in his statement.

    Hey BTW we Buddhist really are not bothered by idiots smashing Buddha statues, we can build 10 to replace 1 that is destroyed, and in half the time. So don’t bother your tiny little heads about this.

      Why not? I am bothered. It is sacrilege.
      All citizens have a right to practice their religions in Sri Lanka.
      Therefore, Buddhists should not be deprived of that right.
      It is religious discrimination which is against the law.
      All perpetrators who try to incite religious riots should be brought before the law and given the maximum punishment.

        “All citizens have a right to practice their religions in Sri Lanka.

        Rather than building temples, vihares, mosques, churches, Buddha statues, …. on every other land and at every street corners, why don’t you get your pimp to buy large piece of land somewhere in the centre and build as many as temples, vihares, mosques, churches, Buddha statues as you like?

          That’s a good one. Similarly, all Hindu Kovil will remove from Sri Lanka and install where they belong, Tamil Nadu, the biggest land of Hindu.

            “Similarly, all Hindu Kovil will remove from Sri Lanka and install where they belong, Tamil Nadu, the biggest land of Hindu”

            Brilliant.
            Are you sure Tamil Nadu was/is the bastion where Hindu religion started?
            I buy your logic.
            Lets uproot and pack all the Vihares and send them to the country that has the largest population of Buddhists, China ( 244,130,000) scatter among other countries where Buddhists have substantial presence, Myanmar – 48,415,960, Thailand-64,419,840, …………….. or Nepal where Buddha was born, ….

            If you love the statutes more than Awakened one’s teachings please relocate to those countries which gloat of having built the largest, tallest, numerous………….. Buddha statues in the world.

      “Hey BTW we Buddhist really are not bothered by idiots smashing Buddha statues, “

      Then why bother building more and more Buddha statues at all?
      Is it because you could force “others” to accept what you impose on them, your will on other, because you won a war, have a huge armed forces, you do not care what the international community says, as before you are willing to commit another round of war crimes?
      You are Buddhist!!!
      And you want us to believe it.
      I never knew Buddha wanted you to build stutes for him.
      What a pathetic lot you are.
      You ought to be ashamed of yourself.
      There is a hell of a lot of difference between Buddhists and Sinhala/Buddhist and you are one of them.

    First by asking Sumathithran to relocate himself into Jaffna. You can help by encouraging him.
    Native Vedda can carry out a propaganda campaign among the Tamils (all Tamil speaking people irrespective of their religion caste or the date of arrival) over the barbarian and genocidal nature of Sinhala Buddhists. That helps immensely.
    So glad to hear of your acceptance of my proposal. It is gaining currency.

      Please bear with us.
      There is some delay politically and legally carving out your Mutant Sinhala/Buddhist fascist homeland in the deep deep deep south.
      I apologise for the delay.

      Sinhalese, Buddhists, Hindus, Tamils, Muslims, Christians, refugees from other lands, can choose wherever they want to live, work, rest and die……………. except the Sinhala/Buddhists.

      Please advise Dayan the card carrying public racist to seek refuge in Europe or Americas.

    Building Statues are more important than building goodwill and peaceful living conditions to the people of the land.. Let Lord Buddha rest in concrete statues sans heart and love.
