“The State Intelligence Service has submitted a detailed report regarding the newly formed Mahinda Rajapaksa led ‘Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascist Movement'” one of Maithripala Sirisena’s advisers informed Colombo Telegraph on condition of anonymity.
According to the report after Mahinda Rajapaksa‘s presidential election loss in January 2015, he commenced visiting a colossal amount of Buddhist temples on the pretext of seeking support for the concluded general elections in seeking the premiership.
The detailed report sates that the sole purpose of these visits was to seek help in safe guarding himself, his immediate family and his brother namely the former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa for the on going cases relating to abuse of power, forgery, murder, fraud, corruption and malpractices through the creation of a Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascist Movement.
Moreover the damning report states that the formation of this Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascists Movement was so well organized, that if in the event any Rajapaksa family member was arrested by the authorities, the entire cadre which also includes certain Buddhist monks could take to the streets within minutes, even leaving their places of work by communicating using secret codes.
No sooner the general elections were over, the FCID promptly resumed their investigations by summoning Gotabaya Rajapaksa for questioning.
The report states that Mahinda Rajapaksa led forces are rampantly recruiting numbers to make a strong cadre that could almost instantly commence blanket protests in the Buddhist dominated areas of the island.
The report clearly states that this Buddhist Temple Based Neo-Fascist Movement was an independent Mahinda Rajapksa led body and has no connections whatsoever with the Bodu Bala Sena or the Ravana Balaya.
According to the President’s adviser this intelligence report is currently being studied by other experts, as the threat this poses could have serious repercussions through mob led protests and violence.
