UN Safe House Attack: Dan Priyasad And 3 Others Arrested, Buddhist Monks Roam Free

Notorious for spewing hate among the Muslim and Sinhalese communities, Dan Priyasad along with three others were arrested today by the police, in connection to the mob attack on the Rohingya refugees at the UN safe house in Mount Lavinia on Tuesday.

A statement from the police headquarters said that a total of six suspects have been arrested including a woman. The four arrested on Saturday were Liyanage Abeyrathne Suresh Priyasad alias Dan, however according to the statement; Priyasad was 51 years although he is believed to be much younger. The other three arrested were; Paneetha Niroshan Deepage, Nawalage Don Chinthaka Sanjeewa and Nanayakkara Godakandha Kankanamlage Gayan Madhushanka Seneviratne.

Incidentally, and despite video evidence, the leader of the Sinhala Ravaya, Akmeemana Dayarathana who led the mob attack at the safe house continues to roam free.

Meanwhile, in a strange turn of events, the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) in a statement issued on its Facebook page said that the Rohingya refugees should be dealt with humanity. The BBS said that supporting Myanmar Buddhists, defeating terrorism and protecting the rights of refugees were all different subjects. “We should not mix them without proper understanding and knowledge,” the BBS statement said. The group requested everyone to respect humanity and look through Buddhist perspectives.

    BBS ” requested everyone to respect humanity and look through Buddhist perspectives”.

    Aren’t you not going to learn Buddhist precepts from BBS though its statement is bit rich.

      Finally it happened. This young man is being finanzed by donators.

      This is not the first time the guy has been arrested. The kin dof men should be put in jail for the rest of life.
      These men got bred during the high days of Rajapakshe rule.
      He never paid attention of the rise of the kind of extremists men. Now it has become elephant issues.

      Please investigative authorities bring powerful laws to shape this totally collaped society.
      Stronger the laws are , there will no more space the kind of idiots to abuse the freedom given in a democratic society.

          Lanken authorities can check it accordingly. How does the man Dayan Priyasad live his life ?
          If he is proved to have no any other income revenues, we need to check his accounts.
          There you will have it glass clear. You the punnakku eaters would not get it but we the born buddhists that promote non-violence feel so.
          We just want people to treat the other as human beings before coming to religion related issues.
          There you guys seem to have lost.
          Had all the tamils left srilanken 2 decades ago are terrorists or their supporters ?
          Have all the syrian asylum seekers left and enter Germany are IS supporters ?
          What an argument ballige puthas of your nature bring here this way ? i believe, we need law and order to the manner Spore and Germany apply in such cases, Then we can get you guys easily. You re just extremists.

      RE: UN Safe House Attack: Dan Priyasad And 3 Others Arrested, Buddhist Monks Roam Free.

      Dan Priyasad was surprised and did not have enough time, to shave his head, find a saffron robe, wrap on the saffron robe, find a saffron robe clad Sinhala “Buddhist” “Monk” to ordain him.

      So, the Sri Lankan police were able to arrest him.

      Just apply the criminal already on the books.

      The need of the hour is to bring laws that will have no space the kind of idiots to abuse and mislead innocient people in this country.
      Almost everyb uddhist in the country is born into the religion.
      They dont know what Buddhas real teachings.
      Those monks that yelled at the POLICE officer in the incident, have no right to attack the officer in that way abusively. But thinking that the buddhist monks are held and respected by everyone , they just abuse the freedom they have as buddhist monks.
      The million dollar question is these monks know what the MONKHOOD really means.
      Monkhood is not just to live on the costs of the people, being in sanga robes, they should be compliant to the LAWS within the sanga culture. What should be those within Sanga culture.
      1)First of all to learn behave in a gentle manner as we got to see monks lived in the country in 70ties or 80ties, , if they cant do so, they should derobe themselves and leave the lay life

      2) Buddhist monks should have the right to go above the laws prevailing in the country and practise the channels of impunity. These monks and that aggressive Balusara taught to the country, that they have been placed above the law.

      3) Mahanayaka Theros, if they really are the ones to tame those abusive monks and monk culture in the country, should finally wake up from their LONG SLUMBER from their sloth life. It is high time them to react …. teach these abusive bastard skind heads a lession. Then only we the buddhist can feel, Mahanayakaya really protect lanken buddhism.

        Let me correct my previous posts

        Monks should not become a headache to the nation, so long they live as monks.

        1) Buddhist monks should NOT have the right to go above the laws prevailing in the country. All these are almost similar to those muslims that seek some sort of previledges weaing full body covered costumes.

        2) Crime or misbehaviours shoudl be re-finded and telecasted/broadcasted by the media so that people can notice, how they hav eto be. Specially, Monks that behave not being able to control their testesterone mirror shoudl be brought before investigations.

        3) Mahanayaka theros to resign if they would reamain KIRIMAETI GILAPU KIMBULAS, letting any thugs to do the jobs for them, if this country to be marched forward.

      Need of the hour is to bring laws against any criminal monks.

      If srilankens lawful bodies would do the job, this nation can be healed.

      No matter they wear the SANGA constumes, so long they behave like criminals by abusing the filth like for example they did it to POLICE officers, should be arrested.

      These MONKS that live on the alms given to them, have no idea about the buddhism, but they have been festated by extremists thoughts.
      If they want to do politics, they should be leave SANGA life and join LAY people. Then they can also pay the taxes as others would do and continue their all even abusive life styles.

      NO ANY MONK HAS THE RIGHT TO ABUSE THE LAWS AND SEEK IMUNITY IN THIS COUNTRY … if the culture had been such. IT IS HIGH TIME TO CHANGE IT … law makers WAKE UP and save the nation from these PINGUTHTHARAYAs.

        The real culprits are the so called Maha Sanga who have no control over bhikkus. The bhikkus themselves are well aware that under the present governance system, there is no way that Maha Sanga can take any action against them.

        Since Rajapakse regime, the politicians have made use of them and other chief priests from other religions for their own agendas in return for monetary and other benefits.

        What are the benefits enjoyed by them?

        1 Diplomatic passports
        2 Duty free permits to buy luxury cars or to sell the permits and encase them
        3 state land for commercial purposes
        4. Diplomatic postings for relatives
        5 luxury cars as gifts
        6 naming rights for streets when priests are alive
        7 no action against unauthorized construction
        8 no action for any criminal acts carried out by them or under their guidance

        The list is endless and until our dayakaya’s open their eyes, this circus will go on.

        Honestly , not a bad idea to drape either a saffron robe or a cassock under the orient political culture.

      Maithree is a real slimy snake who supports and backs racists as the system that we have in the country is a Govigama Elite criminal’s safe haven. Ranil, Maithree, Mahinda, JR, Bandaranayakes, Wijewardenes, Wickremasinghes, etc are one big Mafia clan who support each other and never betrays one another even if they are complicit in national crimes that threatens the country. Buddhist Mafia is given to Champika to run as he likes. So, we see on a daily basis some kind of an issue that depicts Muslims as the enemy of the state. That’s the goal of the Govigama Elite Clans to keep the lower rung of the Sinhalese to be kept under the control of the system by inciting them to fight someone. When the law is applied, the poor dumb, uneducated, foolish thugs who are members of these Jewish backed groups get caught while the elites who engineers these evils never get caught. They are safe in their rabbit holes. One of the main aims of the Govi Elite is to destroy the purity of Buddhism, a religion full of compassion and love. By deployment of thugs in robes they can transform this beautiful philosophy into a mass murdering lot who is seeking blood of the innocents at every turn. It’s is successful for a certain level as still Buddhist peace loving people are not coming forward to rescue the wonderful teachings of their lord Buddha from these corrupt, racist criminals -Govigama clans…

      Native Vedda,

      we need to ask all those MONKS that have been practising PINGUTHATHARA nikaya – just living in the name of lanken sanga life- meaning abusing the life for their criminal and lazy attitudes, should IMMEDIATELY derobe and enter, Rajapakshe extremist groups run by that ballige putha Wimal buruwanse and Rajapakshe the most abusive lanken leader ever produced by Lanka.

      If american state can react against any racial groups that way, WHY not srilankens, with the executive presidency.
      I believe, had these men bee on GRASS EATING, rather than Rice, they could have achieved the levels easiy.

      It took a week to arrest those Dayan Priysada or the like ABITHTHAYASA OR sexpartners to those aggressive monks, after the most unacceptable incident recently happened in this country.

      Reporters are right, if they would really seek refuge they would have gone to the US or Aus… but these refugees have just been rescued by lankan forces.
      Besides, even if some politicians make their heads that swollen, over 2 million of lanken refugees that reached to WESTERN countries got their recognition as the refugees.. and later became citizens those country during lanken civil war era.
      Our men have forgotten all these just for their advantages.

      CT,

      In the recent Land Mark Case held in Jaffna where the accused were convicted for the Brutal Murder and Rape of a Wonderful School Girl Which shocked the Entire nation,

      A few days ago There was a mass demonstration in Jaffna Town after the Verdict, Where many and primarily one of the Accused Known as ‘ SWISS KUMAR’ When first arrested were given political cover and released. One would Like CT to equally Highlight as to the so called NPC Politicians who Gave Cover to Swiss Kumar and tried their best to get this man in particular set free. And manipulate the law enforcement.

      Hence the Mass demo in Jaffna Town. CT equally high light who these politicians are?

      Today there was a program in German TV.

      Dog trainer had the control over 6-7 varied dogs on the stage. The trainer was a young girl not even 10 years old.
      I was compelled to feel after the program, even EUROPEAN dogs behave much better than lanken average men and women in Srilanka. They the dogs are well disiplined and respect the commands of the dog s owner/trainer.
      What I am going to tell you by this is, our AVERAGE are out of even the basic disipline and obeying law and order.

      This is no joke! These terrorists disguised as Buddhists Monks are trying to destroy Buddhism and Sri Lanka just Like ISIS and Al Qaeda destroy Islam and the Nations who tolerated and harbored them!

      If this terrorism is tolerated it will only destroy our beautiful nation just like ISIS/Al Qaeda has destroyed many nations to a point of no return. Even the governments of those countries have lost control and are at the mercy of these destructive forces…

      Why is the state refusing to take action against these Terrorists who are clearly breaking the law!?

      I Hope BBS is not going to end up as our ISIS!!!
      If we go down that path all Sri Lankans will lose control of this beautiful country.

      No more Terrorists or Dictators plz!

      Time to build a civilized and United Sri Lanka!!

        They just behave silly. It took days for them to take actions against those men in robes that made all harm to the refugees.

          When it is applied one way for the common man and another way for monks we are putting them above the law!!

            Road accidents have risen to unbelievable rates- but no actions have been taken.

            These pingutharayas being hidden behind SIVURA have been abusing COST FREE life but behaving like no second to SOME CONVICTED CRIMINALS.

      Jimsofty,

      I’m from a Buddhist background, and I do try to adhere to some of the good things I have learnt through that background.
      However you are utterly misguided.
      The monks are involving themselves in things that they shouldn’t concern themselves with.
      If anything, they should encourage people to be tolerant and compassionate, rather than xenophobic.

      The monks may destroy the organised Buddhist religion/institution in Sri Lanka, but who really needs it, when Buddhism is a philosophy that any individual can choose to follow. It doesn’t require temples or clergy, in reality.

      But of course you don’t really care about the philosophy, nor the organised institution of Buddhism. You lot are like the Nazis or ISIS in your intolerant thinking. And you would love to have Buddhist monks
      running riot to aid and abet your cause, which is nothing but marginalising anyone that is different to you. That’s all you need from the monks

      So go ahead and destroy everything, while the real practising Buddhists will carry on being who they are.

        Until any kind of extremists groups are buried metres down the earth, we will have no relief in this country.
        Gota should be jailed for the rest of his life, once MIG deal issue is investigated.
        Now one of the men of that deal is taken to custory in Europe. That is not a good sign for Gota the most abusive man of lanken extremists groups.

    Sinhalese don’t have issue with Rohingyas. But they do have serious issues with local Marakkala Muslims who are not in Sinhalese’ good books. There are too many Muslims in Sri Lanka – almost 4 million of them.

      This would be the convenient pretext for you the Sinhala/Buddhist fascists to start attacks on Muslims.

      Have you identified the properties you want to attack, loot and burn down? Give that list to the local patriotic Sinhala/Buddhist saffron clad thugs to lead the attack.

      Have you enlisted the patriotic police/army for their contribution in this Sinhala/Buddhist Fascist Jihad against the innocent Muslims?

      Western Intelligence also warned about Saddamed Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Don’t you think this is also another ‘dodgy dossier’?

      During the war intelligence services periodically alerted the public, 46 LTTE cadres have infiltrated Colombo, 55 LTTE cadres have infiltrated Colombo, 101 LTTE cadres have infiltrated Colombo, …………………………………. They did this randomly quoting figures in order to cover their a**es in case if there was an incident.

        Native,
        Already, Muslims politicians, Muslim priests, Muslim organizations, and Muslim university students who go to study in Muslim countries are said to be under surveillance.

        If there were WMD or not, the terrorist attackers in Europe were suspects before they committed terrorist acts. Sri Lanka must learn lessons from Muslim terrorism in Europe, and they must not take risks.

        Ask any Muslim elder about Muslim extremism in Sri Lanka, which they will confirm. It was assroff who fathered Muslim extremism in Sri Lanka. There are no more friendly Saibu Nana(s) or Pathima(s) any more.

        Sinhalese suffered in the hands of Eelam terrorists for 30 years, now they have learned their lessons, so, if any idiot attempts a ‘read a verse- pull a stunt’ , they will get it.

        The US and Europe have already given their blessings to eradicate Muslim extremism.

    This sudden change of heart from Gnanasara is nothing but an attempt at DAMAGE CONTROL, since strong pressure locally and internationally are mounting against the incident. Akmeemana dayaratha and these fanatic monks worked hand in hand not too long ago, along with that pindapana begger monk (who also took part in the mt. Lavinia incident). Infact Gnanasara threatened to burn down Maligawatta when previously Dan Priyasad was arrested, and how convenient of Gnanasara to now utter something completely out of the ordinary? This two tongued serpent probably had to gulp down at least 2 bottles of gal arrack to put together one sentence like this. Its safer to trust a politician than a turncoat like Gnanasara. And just wait and watch folks, express bail is on its way for those arrested, as protests are bieng planned demanding their release and as usual the spineless yahapalana govt will bow down to extremists!

    All those arrested have only been charged with ‘Unruly Behaviour’ by the police! This country is a joke! The laws these thugs broke on that day are so many and yet the police found only unruly behavior! To begin with unlawful entry, trespassing, verbal abuse, death threats, damage of property(UNHRC owned), assaulting 3 police officers on duty, blocking roads causing inconvenience to commuters, insulting of religions are just a few of the things that lawyers say they can be charged with! And the police pick unruly behavior! The yahapalana comedy drama has begun! Grab some popcorn, sitback and watch the yahapalana clowns make a fool out of themselves sandwiched between the the people who want the rule of law to prevail and the the saffron clad thugs and their loyal henchmen, all because the govt has no spine to do the right thing! Also shame on the President and Prime Minister for not condemning these attacks!

    The same saffron clad thugs who wrecker havoc in Mount Lavinia had yesterday tried to break into the boossa detention camp where the innocent refugees are more housed. Fortunately the Galle Magistrate issued a restraining order against Akeemamana Dayarathana and that sinhale monk and a hord of other monks from getting anywhere near the boossa detention camp. Clearly no amount out of local and global outcry against their inhumane actions seem to deter them. Yahapalana better atleast act this time around or consider a huge voter block lost. Cosy up to the voter block or the unruly dirty monks, its your choice coz sure as hell we can tolerate you but the monks never did and never will tolerate you bieng in power!

    Why was Wirathu, the face of Buddhist terrorism, invited, and allowed to visit our country? He is a despicable terrorist, who is instrumental in spreading violence,
    and inciting the Buddhists in Myanmar, to attack and kill the Rohingya people.
    It seems he is more welcome in this nation than the Dalai Lama.
    Why did the last regime support the BBS, and ignore the racist attacks on the minority.

    This has all resulted in communal disharmony and racist tensions.

    The Police arrest but no action. POLICE CAN DO WONDERS in this wonderland

    This is not the first time the Police make arrests of these notorious terrorists like thugs including some bhikkus. But will file case under section 66 or even under section 85 binding even the victims. This is the type of Police we have.

    They will never file actions under ICCPR Act. Sri Lanka slowly and gradually returning to the era of 1956 form where every aspects taken to empower the minority communities were perceived as the division of the country.

    Even now the saffron thugs are creating the same environment and the Police seem to have conniving with these thugs.

    The CCD had requested the Magistrate not to proceed with prosecuting the case regarding the case where Gnanasara broke into a meeting between Muslim religious leaders and monks on harmony, and therein verbally abused everybody and attacked ven. Watereka vijitha thero with a tab at the Nippon Hotel. After taking the CCD’s case into consideration the magistrate had dropped the case. Gnanasara is now a free bird, what more do you want from the yahapalana govt? A case of verbal & physical assault by a known thug has been dropped just like that.

    Even though Gnanasara’s lawyers promised the courts he won’t talk to anybody in an insulting manner again, yesterday he had given an interviewed to a newspaper again insulting Islam & Christianity in profain language. This very same CCD is now investigating and taking these people into custody. Criminals arresting criminals so they can eye wash the UN & the international community, play out a little drama and set these rabid dogs free again. Screw yahapalana!

      The BBS fat man, should be in jail by now, but then in Sri Lanka Buddhist monks spewing hate and terrorizing minorities, are always exempt from to being punished, or arrested. It is up to the Mahanayakes to condemn any saffron robed thug that goes against the teachings of Lord Buddha, and immediately disrobe them, and call them disgraceful. There is too much silence all around, from the leaders of this nation, to
      the temples. Most Buddhists do not want their religion disgraced by thugs, and they want peace in the country.
      Why are only the thugs taken in and not the monks? These are not representatives of the religion, they are scoundrels doing the bidding of evil, who want this country is disarray and communal strife. They should be made into examples, so that other well fed goons cannot go around the country causing fear to others. What are the authorities waiting for?

    Why Muslim run Eastern Provincial Council is silent on this matter ?

    Are they scared that their term will not be extended by the govt this month if they follow NPC and adopt a resolution ?

    Are they all selfish like most of the Muslim parliamentarians ?

    Where are the spineless TNA Tamils and Sinhala members in the Council ?

    Does anyone knows the answer ?

    These buggers including the fake monks have made all Srilankans look as violent people , they should be given life imprisonment , hope some politicians won’t get the buggers out for their own benefit.
    The police force also should be dealt with ,for not doing their duty.
    Robes and uniform has lost its value in Srilanka, what a shame………….

    The whole thing happened due to lack of law & order situation prevailing in the country, for a long time.
    We should not really blame the people, monks or police but the government for not enforcing real law & order and punishing the culprits without any mercy. Look at the court order in the murder case of the young girl of Jaffna ?..The verdict meted out to the seven offenders are lessons that will definitely prevent this kind of brutal things happening again. Due punishments will reduce or even stop crimes. SL authorities’ neglect of justice and punishment brought all these acts of crimes in the country. People and even monks will behave properly if the law of the land is enforced without any discrimination or political interference. It’s the rotten good for nothing politicians who are spoiling the citizen. Look at the way politicians are protecting the war criminals here ! How can these bunch of idiots can control the crimes or rule a nation ?! The country will go nowhere but will only get destroyed gradually by it’s own so called “leaders”.

    Regarding UN’s Safe house attached “BUDDHIST MONKS ROAM FREE”
    It is suggested that the proposed new constitution under Article 9 is laid down as follows “to grant impunity for the BUDDHIST CLERGY,’ “No complaint or any form of legal action including charges, indictment, law suits or prosecution shall be lodged or initiated against any member of BUDDHIST CLERGY for any of their acts or commission or omission either lawful or otherwise”.

    WE should all hang our heads in shame.

    NOT ENOUGH Sri Lankans, especially, those in the highest positions in the land, have come out to unequivocally condemn the activities of the mob (both with and without robes) who persecuted the FEW who sought refuge in our blessed land. 31 souls; living, breathing creatures of circumstance who find themselves in difficult times, and we could not find the united, unstinting, unhesitating will to give them even temporary relief.

    Oh the shame of it. WE have inflicted on the rest of the world a considerably number seeking refuge; when great natural disaster struck, the rest of the world rushed to help us. When the chance came our way, WE let down humanity.
