Sporadic Violence Continues: Ban On Gnanasara’s Speech

Sporadic violence against Muslim businesses continued today, with incidents being reported from Badulla and Mawanella while the Police fired tear gas a shortwhile ago at a crowd who attempted to march towards Dharga town.

GnanasaraA vehicle that was a part of a convoy taking food and medicine to the displaced persons also came under attack by a mob, sources involved in the relief measures told Colombo Telegraph.

However, the Military, STF and the Police are currently present in their numbers in Aluthgama and Beruwala.

Pictures from journalists who visited the areas today show carnage, complete with arson attacks, and looting.

It is unclear if any suspects have been arrested. The entire riot continued throughout the night despite Police curfew being in place in Aluthgama and Beruwala.

Several high profile Ministers including the Prime Minister, JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, UNP MP’s led by Karu Jayasuriya were in the area today.

At a specially convened meeting today in which government Ministers including Basil Rajapaksa, Galagodaathe Gnanasara and others participated, it was tacitly agreed that the speech made by Gnanasara was not to be played according to informed sources.

In a hateful and inciteful speech made prior to the riots, Gnansara said that the “Muslims should be finished” among other statements to a receptive and cheering crowd.

      And they had to “tacitly agree” that this baboons speech was hate speech. Oh, what a bunch of spineless morons. This is what you get when you decided to give credit to a bunch of cardboard heroes for the brave work done by the real heroes of the country.

    The looting and arson is part of the psyche of the mobs. They are unable to work hard and make a success of their lives, they envy those who strive and work hard to run simple shops and eating places. They showed the same envy and struck at Tamil shops and boutiques in 1983. They cannot stand to see minorities being successful, for it makes them feel inadequate. Poverty and greed make them put any tolerance and compassion side, and join these mindless, ignorant masses, go from one place to another, and join the frenzy.
    All it takes is a little incitement, from the big terrorist, and they become a mass of vicious, greedy and dangerous mobs, taking the law into their dirty hands, and causing havoc among decent people of all religions. They not only disgrace their own religion, but they reject the teachings of their religious leaders, and accept the filthy words of the biggest saffron robed, spiteful thug, who left his religion long time ago, when he was found driving drunk, attacking and inciting dumb crowds into attacking others, and speaking in raw filth to other Buddhist monks who genuinely want peace. This is who the rajapaksa’s support by being silent, opening buildings, and not throwing this rabble rouser in jail.
    Sri Lankans are asking for bigger trouble, and it will come. The world watches, and the rajapaksa’s are not looking good.

    Gnanasara was trained by Asin Virathu when he went to Myanmar. Both of them are blood thirty vampires. Most people predicted this would be outcome in Sri Lanka. Could imagine how the 1983 riots started and carried out. police is just standing doing nothing. Only difference is there are no groups with weapons in muslims. Could see how tamils turned out to be suicide cadres. these things could create jihadis.

    It is interesting that Gandasara Thero was invited to participate in the meeting with the Government ministers and officials. He is the who instigated this violence and he should be in custody and not involved in planning the next step.

    Government of Sri Lanka is actively involved in this violence and this is done in order to bring back emergency rule and show the world that the time is not conducive to have the UN inquiry. This is a planned event of the Rajapakse regime.

    If you listen carefully, this Gandasara Thero even calls the President “Mole Nathi” and “Yako”. Is there no shame, why is the President not taking any action.

      When Gandassara calls the president “mole nathi”
      and “yako”,Swamin Wahanse showers blessing on
      the boss.And he tells the “divine” truth.”sadu
      sadu-saaa.”But if Azath sally utters correctly
      that the “muslims will be forced to respond”
      then,Azath will be invited to the fourth floor
      for “investigation.”Soon Sinhalese are going to
      understand,how intelligently they fooled
      themselves into the precipice they are going to
      be in!

        Dev,

        These are the machinations of evil men, many of whom are hiding in the shadows and guiding events to suit their agendas. If there is one thing that earlier nostalgic pogroms taught us, it is that perpetrators are never caught or punished. When the Tamils were pushed, the LTTE took up their cause and it was thirty years of mayhem. The Al-Shabab moment for Sri Lanka will come – it will be short and sharp – but this time it will be the cities of the south and the west that will suffer. Car bombs in Colombo and the cry will be ‘red sky at night, Colombo’s alight’.

      Why is Gnanasara not under arrest yet?

      Perhaps for the same reason why your brother Rajasingham Jayadevan is not under arrest in London though he tried his level best to throw a lifeline to LTTE in 2001 by having them de-proscribed in the UK.

      He was only trying to give legal status to a terrorist organization (LTTE) as a liberation organization — he is not responsible for whatever LTTE did on the side. You are familiar with that type of legally correct yet morally reprehensible arguments no eh?

      Dr Narendran,

      This despicable rabble-rouser and his coterie are lap dogs for evil men operating from the shadows. Their actions suit the agendas of those evil men – one has the other in a vice like grip and neither can let go. Don’t expect anyone to be arrested, instead expect more mayhem and bloodshed and more suffering of innocent people. Once again we are seeing the weakest side of our majority community; to turn a blind eye and succumb to the rampages of the mob and the mayhem they create. I saw Banda do it, I saw JR do it, big men who went ‘dumb’ when the hour came and harrumphed and procrastinated waiting for the ‘passing clouds’ to disperse. Such is the cursed fate of Sri Lanka. Don’t hold your breath sir, the dogs will continue to run loose, and the show will go on.

      Narendran,
      When the LTTE was suicide murdering over 70,000 Sri Lankans did you ever ask why Parayabakarn was not arrested?
      Did you ever ask why do the GOSL is talking to the LTTE suicide murderers in Norway?

      I guess you asked these questions but can’t remember in which article you raised these questions. Right?

    Blood thirsty Grease piya probably found that Muslim Blood is tastier than Tamil Blood. Gaanu 5 Bababdu Naanasara is only a cat’s paw of the Grease Piya. When the 3 Sanwedee Nayaka thuma arrives from abroad he will act the Aadambarakara Thatha’s part and credit everything to the International Conspiracy account. Independent media will find evidence suggesting some powerful western countries are behind this riots. Chapter close and Rauf Hakeem will continue with Justice ministry portfolio.

    Unfortunately moda talk only fools modoayo. And the moda crowds react to moda talk. While the moda rulers act as of they are fooling everyone.

    Gandasara who incited the whole affair visits the area to thank the moda crowds.

    Decades after decades we rollick on the the same scenery while various rules laugh all the way to banks.

    3 dead is nothing compared to the number of people killed recently by police themselves. But the moda people fail the realize what’s going on.

    Heartfelt condolences to families who lost loved ones and people lost property to looters.

    Faith will only increase by all this. If death is what is destined, so be it. Lets hope these deaths results in positive change for the whole nation.

      Safest is Tamil Elam for Muslims.

      In 1990 all Muslims were chased away from Jaffna to Saudi.

      Next day 200 Muslims gunned down in Kathankudy (Tamil Elam).

      If you think this is good for Muslims I have no argument with you.

      Unlike the Sinhala/Buddhists they will forgive you. However you got million and one thing to apologise for your deeds of the past 2500 years.

        Native Veddha:

        Clearly you and Gnanasara are the mirror image of one another. You hate Sinhala Buddhist community and Gnanasara hates Muslim community.

        You both hate entire communities of people who make up this country for your own diabolical reasons.

        You hate anything and everything Sinhala Buddhist and Gnanasara hates anything and everything Muslim. You hate the religious practices of Sinhalese and Gnanasara hates the religious practices of Muslims.

        Needless to say to have peace in this country we need to banish not just Muslim haters but also Sinhala Buddhist haters.

        You are weeny bit clever at disguising your loathsome character, a faculty that Gnanasara lacks badly. Otherwise you are both one and the same.

      As a Sinhala/Buddhists you are not really appalled.

      The opposite is right, you are indeed satisfied with the phase of Sinhala/Buddhists racist aggression against hapless Muslims.

      but navin you were saying MR is the man for the hour….werent you?

      What happened in Aluthgama did not start in 16th or 14 June. Everything started in 2012. MR ignored them, even tolerated. Who would allow BBS’s rally in Aluthgama after clash on Poson poya day? This whole BBS saga and how MR acted against them is enough to throw him out.

    What Gnanasara is doing with a minority of Sinhalese is the same what Parabakarn did with a minority of Tamil population and Wijeyeweera did with a minority of the Sinhalese. None of these agentry brought any useful outcomes but only misery. These kind of characters should be eliminated from the society so as to avoid unnecessary demise of thousands of innocent Sri Lankans.
    Unfortunately, the trend in every society is, a radical minority always rule over the silent majority.

    what is the use of banning the hate speech after every thing has happened and the objectives were realized. muslim leadership has to form a think tank to study the situation and formulate strategies to confront the situation created by anti muslim chavinistic elements. it is better to get the collaboration of like minded sinhalese and tamils.
    the situation is directly having serious adverse effect on muslims but indirectly affecting the majority sinhalese, tamils and the country as a whole.
    we are moving towards no re-concilation, no development and no (asian) miracle situation about which the ruling elite are not at all interested.

    I am reminded of what a German tourist, a regular visitor who enjoyed
    staying at the Mt’Lavenia Hotel told me after witnessing the 83′ riots.
    He told me that he never saw the Sinhala man working so hard as they did looting and rioting! He told me that he had personally saved two young tamil men from a beating, and possible death, by giving them refuge in
    the hotel & from there took them to safety. Frankly, I was ashamed
    to hear this story.
    The root of the cause – the cursed POLITICIANS (whether Sinhala,Tamil or Muslim) and NOW the Buddhist Clergy of the most peaceful religion
    on earth!!!#$%$!
    Shame !!!!!

      In VP’s case he was supposed to swallow the cyanide capsule like his child soldiers. I guess the coward did not do that. I don’t know how RW was killed. Was it he tried to “escape” and was shot? The popular method in the West. The demise of both brought peace and freedom to the country. Would you agree?
      Now about Gnanasara. I am not the gov. so I can’t answer your question. But if I was, G would be out of the scene by now.

    Sinhala governments have again and again showed the world whom they collude with and how they treat the minorities. 1956 riots, 1977 riots, 1981 burning of Jaffna library, 1983 riots, and 1984 burning of Hartley College were just few examples of how Tamils’ livelihood were systematically destroyed at the early stages. Now, it’s just the beginning for Muslims.

    Pure and putrid hatred.

    At last this demonic Gnanasara had admitted in public that he is a racist.

    Of course hatred of minorities is the bonding element of all Sinhala people. Any leader who can fan most of amount of hatred is the one most admired by the Sinhala people. You can see it happening is these hate speech videos.

    BBC Sinhala service is also helping to fan hatred by showing the video of Gnanasara in all its unblemished hate filled speech in full.

    The hapless Muslim has no chance in hell in surviving this onslaught. The bloodthirsty Sinhalese drunk with success in decimating the feared LTTE are not going to stop until all minority blood is spilled.

    All those Muslims who supported the government in one way or another in defeating the LTTE must be huddling in a corner with shame and horror.

    Dear Basil R
    It seems Galagodaathe Gnanasara and others held a meeting. This means that a person inciting violence on a population of nearly 10% SL is attending a meeting by you & high profile people. This is how low & stupid had the govt. of SL had gone to. This gives an impression collaboration of the SL govt. to the 20% of the world’s population and to the wider world. This itself is enough for you ( Basil ) be dragged to Hague. Or are you waiting to be dragged there so then the Sympathy votes of the Moda Harak’s go for your stupid brother?
    Please Explain
    The other thing is our STF is known for its efficiency.In the presence of them and during a curfew looting and arson took place. Dear STF, Are you behaving to the tune of Political masters? or are you playing the racist card? If its the latter then all these blame on you by the Tamils is reasonable.

The monks should be preaching peace. From the very beginning monks should”nt have been allowed to enter in to politics their place was the temple and temple it should be. Because right now they are disgrace to the buddhist religion.SADU..SADU..SADU
