SL Muslims Living In Australia Urge Authorities To Deny Visa To Gnanasara

Nine organizations representing Sri Lankan Muslims living in Australia have issued a joint statement urging the Australian government to reconsider their decision to allow Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary, Galagoda Atte Gnanasara to visit the country.

Gnanasara

The Collective of organizations representing Sri Lankan Muslims living in Australia, in a letter to Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop and Australian Minister of Immigration and Border Control Scott Morrison, has urged for a reconsideration of the decision to grant visa for Gnanasara to visit Australia under the pretext of a ‘spiritual awakening mission’ based on Buddhism.

The Collective that has drawn the Ministers’ attention on the recent anti-Muslim riots in Southern Sri Lanka that Gnanasara is accused of having instigated, points out he should not be allowed into Australia as he fails to pass the character test defined in Section 501 (06) of the Migration Act of 1958.

They have asserted that Gnanasara’s association with a group that has been suspected of criminal conduct and the possibility of his arrival in Australia inciting discord in the local community and resulting in a segment of the Australian community being vilified, have compromised Gnanasara’s credibility to enter Australia.

They have also shed light on Gnanasara’s close association with the extremist Burmese monk Ashun Wirathu and his infamous role in inciting hatred on the Muslim community in Sri Lanka since 2012.

Furthermore, they have stated that against the backdrop of several countries including the UK, US and France denying access for Gnanasara to visit the respective states, Australia too should follow the ‘well considered lead set by the other countries’.

    Please do not step in to a temple simply because you do not understand Buddhism and you not a genuine Buddhist either. Buddhism need to be looked at with in yourself. A good Buddhist should not be worried about some one else’s action and decide either to be a Buddhist or a not. You are stupid saranga!

      Yes, the truth is simple. Sinhala Buddhists killed three Muslims, looted & burned 80 Muslim owned shops & factories, and 49 houses and mosques in response to a Muslim youth allegedly pushing a Monk over a traffic incident. In return, a few Muslims attacked one Sinhala Buddhist house in the presence of the police(??? arranged by JHU for youtube?). Everybody knows this except you!

      Thousands of Aluthgama Beruwala clips have been sent to all over the Western world and to the Kangaroos & Kiwis.

      They all have a clear pic of Percy’s/Nandasena’s/Mohan Peiris’/Sarath N Silva’s/Champika’s/Gandasara’s Abasarana Buddhism – The Newest philosophy or Amended Buddhism.

      Buddhagamata Sinhaleta Sri lankawata Abama Saranai!!!!!

      Someone save us please – Time to send SOS.

        Champacha’s and Gammanpacha’s bogus clip.
        Bankrupt beggar buggers.
        Watch and enjoy, the rest of the world is well aware
        of the regime’s fake tactics. There are enough evidence to prove
        this is the work of JHU and Gota’s BBS.

        Latest news – One young monk in Beruwala has killed hilself last night, thanks to Abasarana Buddhism.

        Mara rocks and he could rock until Uva results are announced.

      No Law and Order. Reconstruction After the fact. Unfortunately no credibility.

      1. Is this Acting?

      2. Is this Sinhala Buddhist terrorists mistaking Sinhala Houses for Muslim Houses.

      3. So it was a van, not a three wheeler as Shinali Sill Waduge mentioned.

      This was Planned. However, this is reconstruction after the fact.

    Buddhism is a very peaceful religion and it promotes harmony and kindness among the other cultures and religions throughout the world.

    If Rajapaksha brothers didn’t start this organisation (So called BBS), then there wouldn’t be any religious riots in any parts of sri lanka at all.

    Money and authouritarian attitudes of Rajapaksha family is trying to play Cat & mouse game between other religions in sri lanka, because they think that it’s cool and making them happy to see all other minorities are getting crushed by the Brain washed Theras.

    None of these are the monks/Theres’ faults but please and all should point fingers at the “Rajapaksha & brothers LTD”.

      Very True. These monks and their brigades can be crushed in an instant, if only there is the will to do it. The government has created a monster of its own in the form of BBS/SR/RB/JHU which they will have to deal with sooner or later. Even the Mahanayake Theros are complicit for not speaking out against these barbaric acts, but they will probably get away only with guilty feeling in their hearts. So just lets wait and see.

        GORA could ‘White Van’ Gandhassara if he wanted to.

          Rationalist

          “GORA could ‘White Van’ Gandhassara if he wanted to.”

          Would he or should he?

          Who is going to white van the last white van operative?

          I don’t think its a good idea.

          The white van operation is not new and it will not stop with Gota. It has been a practice of all governments since late 1980s.

          Live and let live should be our principled position.

    We Truly hope that “Rajapaksha and his brothers” will go down by their own fellowers like how Gadaffi was killed by his own people.

    Also we hope that they will take their BBS fellowers with them to their graves.

    All blames should be directly pointed to the Creators of BBS.

    Even if he arrives in Australia, although i doubt it with a great level of certainty the Australian Immigration will not allow him similar to that of the USA, UK and France based on his ability to create criminal activity by means of racial hate speech, all the liberal minded people irrespective of race or religion should hold a large procession together to show such acts will not be tolerated by liberal people and mostly the Sinhala Buddisht.

    Which ever way the situation can be positive if properly acted upon.

      Muhunthan,
      Agreed, Ausies shall not. But believe me, Sri Lanka is better than Australia when you compare Sinhala Buddhist racism. Here, we have Radios, organizations control by those racist, and also temples. Moreover, we have real Upasaka Ammas who promotes BBS here. The best fool racist uneducated Sinhala Budhist are filtered in to Australia last decade or two.

    Winning International reputation for jarapaksha’s violent politics is more important right now. This is nothing, but a plan of Gota and Mahinda. Narrow minded Idiot Tony Abott need only, stop boats from banana republic. The deal is made, granted visas.

    “Rajapaksha & Brothers LTD” started this BBS organisation & they have long term goal to use BBS as tool to stay in power & to use BBS as a weapon to crush all minorities in Sri Lanka.

    Unfortunately This isn’t what buddha taught his fellowers and Monks should not be bought over by “Rajapaksha & Brothers Ltd”‘s money.

    All these are the Military tactic of Gotabaya & I wish that he will pay price for all these acts one day. We all believe in “Bad Karma”, Do we?.
