State Media Knew Of Monk’s Self-Immolation Plan In Advance And Filmed It – Secretary Media Ministry

The incident of the Buddhist monk Bohowatte Indararatna thero’s self-immolation has sparked a journalistic ethics issue Media Ministry Secretary Charitha Herath told the Sunday Times.

Charitha Herath

According to the Sunday Times, investigations by Media Ministry has revealed that the monk had, before setting himself on fire told the local correspondent of a State media institution of his plans to do so. The correspondent had videoed the entire event. The material had been aired both in State run and private television networks.

“We have to ask the media to draw the line when it comes to such issues. As a result of the correspondent in question keeping the incident a secret until he videoed it, the life of a monk is now in danger,” he told Sundya Times. Media Ministry Secretary said his Ministry was going into the ethical issues in this regard. “We don’t want to be restrictive but the media, both State run and private, must know their limits in cases like this,” he said.

      Seems like a publicity stunt gone wrong. Regardless of how many monks setting fire to themselves the killing of cattle will not be stopped. Instead these monks should agitate for more humane methods of killing the cattle where they suffer no pain or stress.
      In Australia approximately 10000 horses are being culled because they a nuisance and a menace. We could have a similar scenario with cows here if we’re not smart about it.

        Nodrog:
        Is this yet another attempt to be “erudite?” Pray tell how cows could become a menace in our country?
        Why don’t you address the fact that this blatantly unethical act which contributed to the death of a man was actively contributed to by the STATE MEDIA and the act has gone UNPUNISHED where this same government stooge, Charitha Herath would have been only too ready to have incarcerated any journalist stupid enough to so much as criticise Mahinda Rajapaksa? Ah, but then you’d be only too willing to have beheaded anyone you thought would be critical of your Lords and Masters too!

          Listen dickhead, maybe you’re impressed by your perceived intelligence but I’m not. I’ve aired my personal opinion and if it clashes with your then tough shit….so deal with it moron! It seems you have a chip on your shoulder and a mighty big one at that for which I pity you. If you cannot tolerate opinions that differ for yours without resorting to insults then its better you stay in your little cave where its safe and warm. Pricks like you should be seen and not heard!

        Nordog,

        I don’t know why Australia Culls 10,000 horses as there is a steady market for Horse meat in Eastern and Western Europe, many Asian latin American and African countries.

        Also now the UN has come up with a new Insect receipee to feed growing population and to face future water shortage drying up cultivable lands.

        What will happen if Cows are not killed. They will destroy acres upon acres of grass land giving nothing, and cow dung is contributing effecting environment and emitting Green house gas to atmosphere. What is going on with Stray dogs roaming on streets.

        Like other animals Cows die anyway. Can this Buddhist monk save the Jungle cows also from Tigers and Lions fed both in Jungles and in Colombo Zoo.

        There are many people die of avoidable accidents daily almost to the amount of Cows.

        Only uneducated cows talk bullshit.

            Nodrog,

            You have mis understood my comment. All I said was why Australia cull and throw away 10,000 horses as there is a steady demand for horse meat for human consumption throughout the world.

            I don’t know what they do with those horse carcessas, but there is a demand by both for human consumption and also as animal feed in the world.

            Also many zoo animals in our Dehiwala zoo look underfed and weak. Animals like Lions, tigers, bears look weak and also crocodiles need more quota of meat I suppose. Someone has to look into their daily Meat intake.

            Self emulation is an utter waste of ones body.

              The question is, where does one draw the line? Those who are genuinely concerned about the welfare of animals (as opposed to those into dramatic performances fuelled by hatred towards muslims) should take a look at the big picture of animal food farming across the world. The process of getting informed into what’s in your meat curry is enough to make one go up in flames or turn vegan for life.

              In the West, especially S America, US and Canada, human food consumption patterns and related economic gain are squeezing the humanity out of the human race. Take a little time to look at world farming patterns – especially factory or industrial farming – and the truth is not only incredibly ugly but frightening, not only for animals because of what we do to them before we consume them, but for carnivores who do not know their meat comes from animals sickened by fattening hormones and filled with antibiotics to prop up teetering life-forces. Muslims are nowhere near to the brutality perpetrated on animals by the industrial world, especially the west … Of course, such huge production scales need consumers and even Sri Lanka has been (http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/23185-sri-lanka-a-potential-new-target-for-us-beef.html – and not too long ago, one blinkered stooge in the parliament went so far as to advocate exports from them.)

              Check this, for example, to learn about the fine art of cruelty to animals: “In 1950, the average dairy cow (in the US) produced almost 5,300 pounds of milk a year. Today, the typical cow today produces just under 20,000 pounds. In order to artificially increase milk production some dairy cattle (estimated around 17% in 2007) are injected with rBGH or rBST, an artificial growth hormone. A United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) study found that as herd size increases, so does the percentage of operations that use this hormone, ranging from 9.1% of small operations to 42.7% of large operations…” Cows are now just milk producing widgits on a factory line…

              or this:
              “Slaughter
              Once beef cattle have grown to an adequate size, or when dairy cows are no longer producing milk at an acceptable rate, they are taken to be slaughtered. In March 2009, the USDA finally banned the slaughter of so called downer-cattle (those too sick or lame to walk). F Before this ruling, USDA regulations stated that downer-cattle could be slaughtered for food if they passed the pre slaughter (ante-mortem) inspection at the slaughterhouse. As the downer cattle were unable to walk they were routinely pushed, prodded and shoved into the slaughterhouse by any means possible, causing much pain to the already suffering animals.

              While slaughterhouses are required to meet USDA standards for cleanliness and humane treatment during slaughter, F they are also in the business of killing animals. So the faster the slaughter and butchering process, the more meat produced and the more money made. The pressure to slaughter animals quickly inevitably leads to mistakes that can often violate the USDA regulations and lead to the mistreatment of the animals. In some slaughterhouses up to 2000 cattle are slaughtered each day. F At this speed it is “nearly impossible to guarantee each is slaughtered within the regulations.” F Cattle are also sometimes injured in the rush to move them from farm to truck to slaughter. In addition, slaughterhouses have been reported as regularly failing to completely stun animals before the slaughtering process begins. F This can result in cows being hung and bled while they are still conscious.”

              these links come from: http://www.sustainabletable.org/274/animal-welfare. It’s just one example, but if you look around, you will find plenty more, along with gruesome videos on youtube.

              So, for those here whose concern is genuinely motivated by animal rights – then do raise the call by all means, but direct it where it should rightly be directed – i.e. perhaps those who export meat into sri lanka from industrial farms, or those who use hormones to fatten their cattle. Those who are using cattle as a tool for racism should shut up if not for anything but respect for these poor beasts – an indeed all creatures – whose flesh we enjoy.

      It is UN-BUDDHIST to do violence to oneself or others.
      Moderation, the middle path and equanimity with “right understanding” is what the Buddha taught.

      The death of this guy is the result of the politicization of religion. Uneducated monks who have a poor grasp of a complex doctrine are being USED by political goons like Gota the wHite van man who backs Balu Sena to stir up trouble and cause conflict between the diverse religious communities.

      All this is in violation of what the Buddha taught..

      DEAR MR PRESIDENT
      ANSWER IS VERY SIMPLE.
      1. LET HINDUS TO EAT CHICKEN AND MUTTON
      2. LET MUSLIMS TO EAT CHICKEN, MUTTON AND BEEF.
      3. LET CHRISTIAN TO EAT CHICKEN, MUTTON, PORK AND BEEF
      4. LET BUDHISTS TO EAT CHICKEN, MUTTON AND PORK
      5. LET BUDIHIST MONKS TO EAT ONLY CHICKEN
      OR ELES PROHIBIT EATING ALL ANIMAL FLESH
      THIS IS NO JOKE. DONT LET HUMAN LIFE TO SACRIFIES FOR ANIMAL.

    I even wonder if this is state sponsored. All evidence suggest that. State, State media, Authorities in Dalada Maligawa, Some politicians, Police, public that was involved, seem to have known this before hand and it is a well planned act. Anyone who is even remotely involved, with this act, either directly or indirectly, will have to pay for it.

      And they were ready with buckets of water. So it IS theatrics gone terribly wrong. A far cry from the drama of fasting unto death. Poor soul will never rest in peace, for simply putting himself in the frontline of ab agitation, which could have been achieved through subtlety and tact, rather than self annihilation.

      Rafika,

      Yes, I think this whole episode was a pre planned staged Drama for a specific purpose.

      Also read the following web.

      lankaenews.com/English/news.php?id=13697

      We all know that Gotabaya Rajapakse was trying to Imprission Azath Sally some days ago, but luckily Azath Sali escaped.

      This may be another Govt. conspiracy to take revenge from Muslim and Christian community for voicing their anger against Rajapakse dictatorial rule.

      Also by this act they would have thought of Closing down all the Meat stalls first followed by Pork and chicken stalls later.

      Once they were closed down, the same Conspirator business mafia later will monopolise their underground supply of Meat business, charging five to ten times more from the customers making huge profits.

      This is similar to whaqt Govt. Elete did to illegally imported Ethenol to make Kasippu and now in Ganja and drug Mafia business Cartel.

      First you force them to shut down and later monopolise the Business making extra ordinary profits. This is how Business Mafia cartel works.

      SRI LANKA MAFIOSAS ARE STILL ALIVE AND THIS IS ANOTHER PLOY TO ACQUIRE THE WHOLE MEAT BUSINESS UNDER ONE FAMILY.

    This is Paparazzi at its Worst with the concurrence of the Buddhist Monk. Is this the Buddhism the Lord Buddha taught?

    1. The Monk was going to commit Suicide.

    2. The correspondent knew it. He took undue advantage of that.

    3. The question what is the link between this correspondent and the state?

    4. We know the State, the Govt, of Sri Lanka lies blatantly.

    There is media department headed by people who lies.

    There is the Ceylon Daily news and others that lie, and they have their own Shill correspondents and writers.

    Then there are many news sites that are controlled or with their shills running them, that will not allow for any critical comments against the sate.

    This is pathetic. This is Mara morals. This is NOT Buddhism.

    Welcome to the Dhamma Island- Dhamma Deepaya.
    The Yakkas, Nagas and Veddahs have better morals, and they did not need the Imported Buddhism.
    Lanka should have remained Hindu like Bali Island, Indonesia, and peaceful, free of Monk Mahanama Myths,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paparazzi

    Paparazzi /pɑːpəˈrɑːtsi/, /pæpəˈrætsi/ (singular: (m) paparazzo Italian: [papaˈrattso] or (f) paparazza) are photographers who take pictures of athletes, celebrities, politicians, and other prominent people usually while they are going about normal life routines. Paparazzi tend to be independent contractors, unaffiliated with any mainstream media organization and pictures take are usually done so by opportunity. [1]

    Many celebrities complain about the extent to which paparazzi invade their personal space,[2] and some have even filed restraining orders against them.

        JHU, JHU, JHU All over….Read on….

        Petty politics of JHU made Ven. Indraratana commit suicide – Bimal Rathnayake
        MONDAY, 27 MAY 2013 20:04

        http://www.lankatruth.com/english/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5078:petty-politics-of-jhu-made-ven-indraratana-commit-suicide-bimal-rathnayake-&catid=42:smartphones&Itemid=74

        It is the petty politics and political gluttonous of the JHU that created the environment for a Bhikku to set himself on fire and commit suicide says the Member of the Central Committee of the JVP and the National Organizer of Socialist Youth Union Bimal Rathnayake.

        Speaking to a daily newspaper Mr. Rathnayake has said JHU, that plunders virtuous policies related to Buddhism, misleads people while it is being pushed towards the garbage heap of politics and Ven. Bowaththe Indraratana Thero committed suicide at a time when such politics need no such sacrifices.

        Mr. Rathnayake has also said Bodu Bala Sena that claims it represents Sinhalese Buddhists is engaged in petty politics for prestige and to receive various benefits while the masses are being burdened with increased electricity tariffs.

        Speaking further Mr. Rathnayake said, “We are indeed sorry regarding the death of Ven. Bowaththe Indraratana Thero’s death. We appreciate his sacrifice for a common objective in the society.

        However, certain media reported that he was crestfallen for being removed from the JHU. The main reason for such an incident is the attitude of the JHU that is silent while casino palaces and brothels are opened in this country but manipulates people to sacrifice their lives for its petty politics.

        JHU is an organization with a minority that agrees with laws that are passed in Parliament to establish casino palaces and brothels in this country. It takes communal slogans from any interested parties.

        There is no politics in this country that needs anyone to commit suicide. We condemn petty political objectives that are taken for the party’s propaganda projects. JHU has been submerged in such a foul political agenda. What the JHU should do is to strengthen their party and take measured to save the country from local and foreign rogues

    Sadly, NOTHING IS BUDDHISM in sri lanka where Buddhist monks are involved. Buddhist monks stoning the private property, demolishing mosque (dambulla), and the latest VESAK MEMOROBLIA i.e. monks’ protest in front of florists over the death of their colleague (self immolated). One day vesak the next day Buddhist monks on the road rampantly protesting. Buddhism in sri lanka is fastly eroding if not already lost.

    This monk has set a very good example. I do hope more buddhist monks follow suit. Not only cattle slaughter, there are several other issues in this country for which thet can burn themselves.Only problem is that gasoline prices are already high and could shoot up further. Still, the end result is better – far less buddhist monks in the country.

      Bali, Indonesia has only 1% Buddhists, 2% Muslims, and 94% Hindus and very peaceful.

      Bali was an Animist and Hindu Island.

      Sri Lanka was an Animist, Jain and Hindu Island populated by Veddahs, Nagas and Yakkas and was peaceful.

      The introduction of Bengali Sinhala and Indian Buddhism, is the curse of Lanka, and the Myths of Monk Mahanama.

      Examples: Vijaya grandfather was a lion.
      Buddha was born in Lanka.

          PresiDuance Bean,

          There is one way to find out and separate Myth from Fact. Is there a Lion gene? Is there Buddha lineage? Is the guy talking a shill?

          What happened to the Veddahs, Yakkas, Nagas and the Animist, Jain and Hindu Beliefs?

          The Church also claimed the Sun goes round the Earth, and cited Joshua stopping the Sun as well.

          Do a genealogy analysis of the current descendants. Method,

          https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/

          Since its launch in 2005, National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Now, cutting-edge technology is enabling us to shine a powerful new light on our collective past.

          Current data probably indicates that Rajapaksas originated from the Southern Indian Gene pool, like everybody else, and is as Tamil and Bengali as the Tamils and Bengalis are.

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinhalese_people

          Studies looking at the origin of the Sinhalese have been contradictory. Older studies suggest a predominantly Sri Lankan Tamil contribution followed by a significant Bengali contribution with no North Western Indian contribution,[47][48] while more modern studies point towards a predominantly Bengali contribution and a minor Tamil and North Western Indian (Gujarati & Punjabi) contribution.[49][50][51] Multiple studies have found no significant genetic difference between the Sinhalese and the three other major ethnic groups in Sri Lanka (Sri Lankan Tamil, Indian Tamil and Sri Lankan Moor).[48][52][53][54][55][56]

          The Genographic Project, launched on 13 April 2005 by the National Geographic Society and IBM, is a multi-year genetic anthropology study that aims to map historical human migration patterns by collecting and analyzing DNA samples from hundreds of thousands of people from around the world.[1]

    It is not only an ethical issue. Is it not a crime when one knowingly condones and does not prevent an attempt at suicide? I think the journalist concerned must be arrested and charged, since beside prior knowledge, he was making a spectacle of it to obtain a scoop for his TV station.

    What a way to promote Buddhist principles? Are Sri Lanka’s Buddhists becoming a laughing stock before the whole world? Are not the Monks resorting to such acts as they are beginning to lose the confidence of the Buddhist people and they fear their existence as Monks could come to an end? There should be a lot of re-thinking among responsible Buddhist Institutions and Senior Monks to find ways to ensure that Buddhism in Sri Lanka exists as a venerable faith and respected by all.

    Aiding and abetting suicide is an offence in Sri Lanka. It is interesting to see how high the chain
    of responsibility goes. Certainly, the tv man who knew about the event and did not prevent it is
    guilty of abetment as he encouraged the happening. One can expect that the police will not
    prosecute. Otherwise, they will have to prosecute so many kleptocrats and murderers belonging
    to the present regime.

      Yet nobody is arrested. I am baffled as to how some systems work in Sri Lanka. Even the most learned who are critical about this act are only seeing the fault of the monk and the ethics (or the lack of it) of journalism (in case of the reporter). But they are not seeing the criminal aspect that had led to the entire fiasco. That’s what is more worrying. Every single person who was involved directly, indirectly and remotely is part of this crime. It is a disgrace to the entire nation !!

    Buddhists claim animal slaughter is sinful and must be stopped, but what about self immolation? Isn’t that a form of killing that must also be condemned. Typical Buddhist thinking without any principles, just playing it out to suit their whims and fancies. And now they want State funeral which must be held in Colombo to get maximum media mileage, and JHU leader claiming it was not suicide but a self sacrifice to stress a point. Wonder what more will come out of this circus, living on human misery.

    Sinhala Ravaya had a plan to attack Muslims Shops by keeping the Useless Dead Monk in Colombo for 2 hours. they anyway did it in Kolpetty and they attacked one Muslim Shop. They are trying to start another event and this time the end of Budhism and Sinhala once they touch Muslims, this is known fact. already Saudi Arabia stopped Oil, Oman gave justa a drop, Refinary is closed down, soon 2 million will be return home from Housemad work in Middle East countries. So to prevent this, Mahinda will stop the Sinhala Ravaya, JHU and BBS, then those 3 terrorist will get togather and Kill the President :) so there is a start… Gota started the Racism and Mahinda gets it and then Gota also get it from Mahinda’s children. this is the end of Rajapaksha family :) end of this Darama

    Media Seceretary Herath has only raised what he perceives
    as an ethical issue for the media. Here again the philosphy
    is kill the messenger. Keep the people in the dark is
    Government policy.

    How many CT readers know the riveting truth:

    1. The Venerable monk who self immolated himself is a member
    of the Pradeshiya Sabha for Pelmadulla. He has absented himself
    from past meetings of the Sabha because the Police were on the
    lookout for him. Among the cases:

    1. Attack on the Weeraketiya Police Station.

    2. Attack on the church at Weeraketiya.

    3. Taking more than three million rupees from different persons
    offering foreign employment. He has not been able to provide one
    job so far.

    4. This is the worst one. Police are on the lookout for him for
    molesting an underage girl.

    He was sacked from the JHU for misconduct. Now the JHU ghouls are
    trying to rise to fame on the monk’s dead body calling his daylight
    suicide a sacrifice. This was said by Champika Ranawaka and his hench
    aiya Udaya Gammanpila. If it is a sacrifice, it will be in great public
    interest if the two will follow suit. They are hypocrites.

    And what did the Sihala Ravaya, which claims to follow the tenets of
    Lord Buddha, want? A state funeral for the dead monk at the Independence Square with live Rupavahini coverage. In that broadcast they wanted to announce that the slaughter of cattle has been banned. They marched to Temple Trees to demand it but MR had already left for China.

    Very soon they will legislate for Tamils to eat Sambar and the Muslims
    only vegetable biriyani.

      Desha Hitesi,

      Thanks for the factual information.

      It is clear that the JHU, BBS, and the regime is using Sinhala Buddhism, and the monks to their own political advantage. This is quite dramatic.

      However, this was used to different genes by different politicians.

      The only difference is that, instead of Tamils being killed in riots, a criminal monk of JHU was killed by design, and JHU wants a state funereal for the terrorist monk.

      Let’s see how the authorities will proceed.

      DeJa Vu, the same way as before, nothing happens.

    I also heard this monk was caught having sex with a young boy monk in the temple. This must have been the real cause of his suicide and now coming out with the cow and bull story.

      screwing a boy monk and molesting a girl, for both crimes the punishment was his “dick set on fire” in public by himself.

    What a great dhammadivipa this lovely Sri Lanka, the
    pearl of the Indian Ocean and the Wonder of Asia is.

    Pure Theravada Buddhism thrives. In a nation where
    there was racial amity, there is racial hatred now.
    The clergy is committing suicide in the name of Lord
    Buddha. And some of his self appointed leaders are
    re-writing Buddhist doctrine by calling it sacrifice.

    What is the difference between those dastardly, too
    radicalised goons of Prabhakaran’s suicide squad and the
    clergy? Aren’t both doing the same thing to achieve their
    ends. Where Prabha is concerned, it was the Utopian ideal
    of a separate state. Where Indraratna Thera is concerned,
    it is by violent means to force the Government to ban
    slaughter cattle and implement a catalogue of other things.

    Is this also a form of terrorism?

    Hope someone would save his Tooth, Hair, skull, limbs and some body parts to build the next generation of Temples.

      Jayantha,

      The best to do at this point is:

      1. Bury him. Let the microorganisms in the soil take care of his flesh and leave the bones. Lowest carbon footprint.

      2. Cremation would result in more CO2 being released and more greenhouse gases and lead to more global warming.

      3. Encourage all the JHU and BBS monks to follow suit and not to be cowards.
      PS: Please Inform the Media ahead.

      So just bury him, and move on…

      Until the Mahanama Sinhala Buddhist Myths are expunged, and Buddhism is Separated from Sinhala.

        Amarasiri,

        Yes regarding Lord Buddhas Hair…..(I don’t know which hair) and his Tooth, please Ask from President Rajapakse as he is the descendent of Lord Buddha’s Ancestory.(Lord Buddha’s Blood line)

        Lord Buddha is President Rajapakses Great, Great Great Great Mee Muttha. Also he is King Dutugemunu’s blood ancestory. Talk to Jackson Anthony also as he knows lot of GIRI means Gala means stones….and Mee Muttha ancestories. A bottle of Kasippu will be enough to find your ancestory also.

        Please see following web video.
        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLhuI0N5XaM

        That’s why we have a lot of Pig eating sh…t in the parliament.

        Please don’t loose your hairy dog’s Body parts.DNA is a must.

          Mahela,

          Very easy to find out the Truth from Myth, the Claims of Monk Mahanama from the 5th Century and Anthony Jackson from the 21st Century.

          Method:

          1. Take DNA samples from the Cheeks of Rajapaksas.
          Send the Samples for DNA Genealogy Analysis to:

          https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/

          Since its launch in 2005, National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Now, cutting-edge technology is enabling us to shine a powerful new light on our collective past

          2. Send reference samples from Lions, Different caste of Sinhala, Tamils, Veddahs, Naga and Yakkas (if you can find them) and samples from South India, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Orissa, Bengal, Bihar and Nepal, as controls.

          3. The results will speak for itself. Will prove or disprove the Myths.

          4. One thing is certain. The Y Chromosomes goes back to Africa, 70,000 years ago, Buddha, Rajapaksa, Vijaya and others included.

    This is why Sir John Kotalawela 60 Years ago told not to let the dogs out that he leached.

    Sad to say SWRD Banda unleashed them for his political gain and paid with his life.

    Now Rajapakses are repeating same.

    Await for next chapter.

      Jayantha,

      Hollywood will have competition.

      Would be a great foreign exchange earner, and new industry, and the rupee will be s strong currency.

      Then, we can keep our maids home.
