UN Safe House Attack: One Unknown Person Arrested But No Infamous Saffron Thugs

Despite boasting that three police teams were deployed to arrests the attackers of the UN refugee safe house, the police today managed to arrest only one unknown person by the name of Weerasekarage Deshantha Chamiruwan Rodrigo from Moratuwa.

However the mob leader former MP and Buddhist monk Akmeemana Dayaratne and many other well known figures have not been arrested yet.

Meanwhile Minister of Finance and Media Mangala Samaraweera in a video release called radical Buddhist monks who led the attack as “saffron robed thugs” whilst Cabinet Spokesman Rajitha Senaratne called them “Animals”.

According to informed sources, the family members of the policeman who is alleged to have raped a Rohingya refugee girl had also participated in the mob attack. (By Manisha Unantenne)

      Minister Mangala Samaraweera ,

      We thank you for your condemnation of the Sinhala “Buddhist” Monks “Mitriya”, Empathy, shown to their fellow Bengali-Rohingyas, who have more or less the same genetics as the Para-Sinhala, by attacking them, as per chronicles and modern genetic testing.. Please say that in Sinhala and Tamil as well.

      What is this? A Telegrama?

      Do you guys at Yajhapalanaya, have guts? Are all of your buddies wimps? What about ‘President” Sirisena? What about “prime Minister Ranil”

      See what Lt Gen Jay Silveria, Superintendent of the US Air Force Academy had to say.

              Kola-Kenda has not yet made Para-Sinhala Buddhists wise, any benefits were negated by the Monks such as Monk Mahanama of Mahawamsa., and the current set of criminal Sinhala “Buddhist” monks running berserk

          Minister/Law&Order, Sagala says 8 years ago nobody bothered about Rohingya refugees. Totally agree, BECAUSE:

          – 8 years ago Ranil, who signed CFA, or P-TOMS granting legitimacy to LTTE to act independent with donors, was not in power.
          – 8 years ago there was no issue of abolishing/amending the Constitution or introducing a Federal Constitution to appease the minority.
          – 8 years ago Muslim Ministers didn’t clear Wilpattu Reserve and settled Muslims in East manipulating voter demographics.
          – 8 years ago there was no threat to Buddhism.
          – 8 years ago there were no political witch-hunt against Buddhist priests by imprisoning them for conducting Buddhist rites/rituals/in possession of elephants/erecting Buddha statues.
          – 8 years ago there was no issue of robbing from temple tills and destroying archaeological sites.
          – 8 years ago Buddhist priests were not slandered, vilified or calumniated as “mad saffron robes, thugs and animals.”
          – 8 years ago no issue of cheating Chief Prelates with bogus promises of not changing the Constitution.
          – 8 years ago there was no issue of gerrymandering (boundary manipulation) by removing Sinhalese villages from Northern Province and attaching them to North-Central Province.
          – 8 years ago there was no issue of election promises to minorities recognizing racism/separatism.
          – 8 years ago nobody came into power seeking Tamil/Muslim/Indian-Tamil votes in lieu of three distinctly separate Provinces, i.e. North/East/Central Highlands by granting Constitutional Rights to Separatists.
          – 8 years ago there was no issue of Sinhalese which are the majority to live only in 6 provinces out of 9 and that also be shared with Tamils/Muslims/Indian Tamils. —

          Guys, let’s keep an eye on the government which is committed to send boat people back. Human smuggling/UNHRC/Muslim Ministers should be investigated.

          Sinhalese should NOW, FOCUS on the bigger issue – treacherous Draft Constitutional Bill!!!

            Contd’…..

            Only issue was :

            – 8 years ago Mahinda didn’t have the backbone to abolish Provincial Councils which were introduced by India to gain mileage from LTTE terrorism issue. That is what will make the Sinhalese nation ending up a footnote to the history of Sri Lanka one day.

            The pain of loss of civilians lives, sacrifices by Tri Forces with life and the amount of disabilities among soldiers, all borne by equanimous Sinhalese in the name of a Unitary Country, is in vain now.

            If politicians now and previous support the Constitution Bill for Federal or 13 or whatever, the general public have a right to ask them what price they are ready to pay for the loss of the lives of hundreds thousands of their loved ones? Every life lost for the past 30 years due to LTTE atrocities and war, contributed to strengthen the Unitary State of Sri Lanka.

            Other than Wimal Weerawansa, Jayantha Samaraweera and Padama Udayashantha (all NFF), all other politicians who support the Federal Constitution Bill should be regarded as treacherous to the country and be punished first politically and socially and then according to the law.

              Early yesterday I posted a comment as follows (an extract) on Wimal’s website which I wanted to cut and paste on Dayan’s article on Constitution on CT, but forgot : —

              Quote:
              “…. Ranil has started very early pretending that he is getting ready for presidential election and then the general election. But in actual terms they are not going to hold those elections in 2020. They are only passing time.Then in 2020 nobody will get a chance. Wimal, I don’t say things for no reason. Sometimes, my mind is sharp like a blade and sometimes I can penetrate and see the future. No actually, that is an exaggeration. But I think my mind works overtime. Because I see RW and MS both are very cool. Too cool. So I thought something is cooking. Wimal, I want you to relax, empty you mind and then think about what I say here. Do you think I am crazy?… ” Unquote: —

              And I saw a similar sentiment expressed in a different angle published on a Sinhalese newspaper for tomorrow. —

              So what I thought was correct. There is a hitch in Ranil and Maithree’s Draft Constitution Bill. Through that they are trying to rob people’s democratic right to vote and elect a new President and a Parliament in 2020. In other words, they are using the Bill to stay in power until 2025. Not bad hey? While our people are hanging onto “Unitary State” and “priority to Buddhism”, Ranil and Maithree are going for the most unscrupulously way to stay in power!!!

              No point of waiting. Let’s rise against the Draft Constitutional Bill and any change to the Constitution.

                Going further back, periodic massacres of Tamils from 1948 to 2001 are on record.
                These were by armed forces and police personnel.
                Constitutional provisions to safeguard human rights were disregarded by them.

              – Before Chola invaded, there were only Sinhalese in the North.
              – Before this government came into power, there was no treason against Sri Lanka. The UN Resolution against Sri Lanka was the first in the world history a government tabled a Resolution against its own country.
              – Before LTTE Terrorism, a large number of Sinhalese lived in the North, then they were chased out of their lands.
              – Before Sri Lanka was not exposed to accusations because there was none. All the fabricated accusations emerged as a result of the treacherous Geneva Resolution which is a product of this government.

              I didn’t check any of your links as by looking at the tiles, anybody can guess where it came from. Tamil Homeland???? Tamil Remedial Justice???? Usage of Chemical Weapons to wipe out Tamils???? .

        In 2004 the saffron clad fascist Akmeemana Dayaratne. was assaulted inside the parliament by Chandrika’s elected thugs for crossing over to the opposition. He was later hospitalized.

        Do you know the names of the assailants?

        Probably they may want to revisit him.

          “Do you know the names of the assailants?” No, but CBK may be helpful.

          After all it was in 1959 the saffron clad fascist Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” “Monk”, Talduwe Somarama, who shot and killed CBK’s father SWRD. The “Monk” was later hanged, but he accepted Jesus as his savior before he died.

          May be we need hood hangman who can hang fascist and criminal Para-“Monks”.

            Native Vedda, you are wrong. talduwe Somarama was not hanged but died a natural death within the prison. It was reported that another monk who was within the prison tried to perform a rectal intercourse on Somarama and in the ensuing fight Somarama was killed. The matter was hushed up because the govt of the day did not want to face the fact that Budddhist monks practice homosexuality – not done boy!

      Some good news on Rapists, Thugs and killers.Will they prosecute the criminal monks and others? Is the saffron robe a Teflon robe, that protects from criminal prosecution? Where is Ganasara? In Japan?

      Vidya’s murder: Seven sentenced to death.

      Seven of the nine accused in Sivaloganathan Vidya’s abduction, rape and murder, were sentenced to death by a three-judge bench of Jaffna High Court a short while ago.

      Jaffna High Court Judge M. Elancheliyan while sentencing them said the first and the seventh accused should be released because of the lack of evidence against them.

      The seven men found guilty were also sentenced to 30 years rigorous imprisonment and ordered to pay Rs.1 million as compensation to Vidya’s family and in the event they failed to pay, the Jaffna High Court said their term of imprisonment should be extended.

      18-year-old Sivaloganathan Vidya of Pungudutivu in Jaffna was abducted, sexually abused and murdered in May 2015.

      UNHRC and the government wrongfully accepted boat people as Rohingya refugees. They are not. They were smuggled by a boat to Sri Lanka from India. Human smugglers always first bring children/women rather than grown up men, because when they are sent to Europe it is easy for them to bring down the rest of the family. It is not easy for Muslims to obtain visas, therefore they use various other “legitimate channels”.

      Government is now “so popular”, not a single Buddhist will vote them again. —

      Some Ministers think slandering Buddhist priests makes them heroes. In addition to Fonseka and Ranjan (they owe an apology to Venerable Elle Gunwansa Thero), Managala and Rajitha called Buddhist priests thugs and animals. Don’t think we ever forget their despicable attitudes and derogatory remarks about Buddhist priests.

      Many Sinhalese voted for Muslim MPP irrespective of the religion. The moment they were elected, they started defaming Buddhism and Buddhist priests. Buddhists have learnt many lessons within the last 2 1/2 years that they will never forget.

      Some Buddhists praise the President/government for granting pensions. But that is people’s money again. After completing 5 years, MPP get a pension, therefore, Buddhist priests also have a right to have a pension. If pension is given as a bribe to win them over, it is not good. Nobody is under obligation to politicians. They are paid by the general public. Serving people is their duty and they are well paid for that.

      These issues are actually minuscule/irrelevant. For the first time in our history, the Executive/legislature/Judiciary all three are against Sinhalese. Therefore, Sinhalese should pay attention to the Draft Constitutional Bill and raise their voice as one against Ranil’s attempt to divide the country into 9 pieces and rapidly pulverize our Sinhalese nation.

      What savings? These ‘Saffron Robed Thugs’ (cardboard patriots), live a life of luxury and will be high maintenance with duty free SUVs’, tax free income, free board and lodging. In addition their services are offered to the highest bidder. Our President has assured that as per the new constitution ‘highest position’ for Buddhism will prevail in Sri Lanka. Are we to take that ‘highest position’ will prevail for ‘BUDDHISM OR THE SAFFRON ROBED THUGS’ who are using this elevated position for a privilege lifestyle and terrorism with impunity?
      THE COUNTRY CANNOT EXPECT ANY PEACE OR DEVELOPMENT IF THE GOVT DOES NOT CRACKDOWN SWIFTLY ON THIS UGLY FACE OF RELIGIOUS THUGS. GOVT MUST USE THE MEDIA TO EDUCATE AND SWAY THE PUBLIC OPINION AGAINST THESE THUGS THAT ARE DESTROYING THE TEACHINGS OF LORD BUDDHA WHILST WEARING THE ROBE.

      Sir,
      Current IGP is obviously mentally-disturbed. Displays clown-like behavior in public. Has documented criminal assault on video. That’s just tip of the Iceberg. Does anybody take this guy seriously? His political authority Sagala & Co are spineless. ALL TALK. Recall how their special Police squads were searching for Gandasara for weeks to be arrested. Only to be bailed out like a joke the day after. Remember how this IGP sucked up to Sagala’s orders not to arrest that infamous Nilame, during that famous phone call. It was painfully embarrassing to watch as a man. Totally devoid of any human dignity, what so ever. This guy is the top official charged with Sri Lanka’s law enforcement. What do you expect, STUPID?

      I really dont know why GOVT cant put the pressure on such issues, even if they intend to let POLICE to decide by THEIR own.
      What is wrong with RULING state to go cricitze the prevailing police ?

      They also talk about the court cases being that slow, but why cant the govt invest more in to the areas so that we can finally have a better society.
      I think senior politicians are in a struggle in getting the priorities for the future of the country.

      1) First law and order and disipline
      2) Then those developments projects and others
      3) For all other activities as they set on the promises list.

        Singapore which did not have any resources not even water gained independence in 1956.
        The first thing the late Mr.Lee Kuan Yews government did was to set up mechanisms to eradicate corruption. Then they implemented a merit based system so that when it came to promotions it was not whether you are in the majority or had superiority but whether you can get the job done.

        If this had happened in Singapore the police officers would have been demoted or sacked. And the culprits would have been immediately arrested and stringent punishment would have been mated out.

        Singapore’s governance was such that a close friend of Mr.Lee committed suicide as he was being investigated for corruption.

        Sadly we are going to celebrate 70 years of independence and we have not been able emulate even 1% of what Singapore has achieved.

    The hooligans in saffron robes are easily identifiable. What is the problem?
    Are the police afraid? Are they taking orders from someone at the top, and NOT arresting them? What does that signal to the other thugs? That they can get away with their fear mongering, and attacks on helpless civilians?

    We have to show the rest of the world, that we are not the Myanmar killers and rapists, and that we will protect, and take care of those fleeing violence. That is true Buddhism.

    For what purpose we should have UNO, if they cant put the pressure on lanken criminals, when attacking the people that seek but refuge.
    If those SO CALLED buddhists feel that everyone leave their own home countries in such brutal harmful situations, then all the tamils and sinhalayas leftthe country during the last 3 decades claiming civil war should all be terrorists ?
    Man, these men are just so devious when it comes to prove their stupdities.
    I think those skin heads wearing sanga costumes have been tarnishing long held NON-violence promoting srilanken buddhism.
    Yet today, so called Mahanayake who are the leaders of lanken buddhist clergy have made any statements on the brutal issues.
    Just because of the kind of criminals and their behaviours, we the innocient srilankens with non-violent thoughts should also be part of their crimes. Latter is what we cant tolerate anymore.

    So, STATE and POLICE should act if not today when. ?

    If they come to know the exact meaning of “Infamous Saffron Thugs”, there may be an attack on Ceylon Telegraph offices – beware!
    It is fortunate that they are illiterate.
    They know that police and the Sirisena regime are scared to touch them and that the judiciary will never convict them of any criminal behaviour.
    These new breed of monks are an insult to the sangha. The Mahanayakes too are scared to discipline them.
    All this is because there is no strict selection process to become disciples of the Buddha – unlike in all other religions.
    Will the “devout” rich Buddhists take action – even with the Minister for Buddha Sasana.

      Its ironic that the J u dge at Mount Lavinia courts who ordered tge thugs ti be remanded is a Muslim,Lers see if he is able to give judgements indipendantely than Sagala getting involved like how 3 cases of Gnanasara wwre handled to the dismay of the learned Sri Lankans. Btw is it true that Gnanasara fled to Japan using a fake passport n is resident at a temple frwquented by MR, who is planning in a trip ti Japan in a few days? Moreover how many times has MR visited Japan since losing the election at govt expense?

    The very issue of Rohengiya Muslim that displace persons problems has wrongly misinterpret by Minister Samaraweera.
    He intentionally that insulted target on Buddhist clergy. By born his decadents are anti-Buddhist as well as his family blood relationship with Tamils he the Minster misused privileges of his govt. position and insulted Buddhist monks several times .This is most that an unaccpaectable
    to majority People of Sri Lankan!
    This concern that person of Minister is key backs of LTTE Tamil terrorist who promoted Global Terrorism by support of Muslim Rohengiya in Sri lanka .
    His Sri Lankan credential has so many doubt and suspension many quarters of Islanders?
    We strongly protest that Minister who have no right insulted of Buddhism and their Monks.
    The issues of refugee claim of Muslim is different issues, that has nothing do with Buddhist Monks.
    There is way he has NO right to mix-up every things by power of Minister ship?

Catholics killig anglicans and vice versa in Ireland, numerous Crusades, Nunnery connected underground to the monastry ?

    This is policing Pujith ( read as Guujith)Jayasundera style.This simpleton from Mahamukalanyaya in the backwoods of Kurunegala cannot understand that in this age of the social media it is no longer possible to take half cocked ,placating measures that succeeded very well earlier.

    Within miniutes of an incident it is in the social media and if not remedied immediately the social media keeps raking up the issue leading to progressive, increasing unpopularity of the government.This is exactly what lead to the downfall of the once mighty Mahinda Rajapaksa government.

    MS and RW better take note and pull the moron IGP up before he helps extremists to bring down the government.Actually , based on his performance the man should be replaced.What good is Guujith,a man who openly confessed that he got the IGP job by offering Buddha Pooja at the Gangaramaya Temple at 3 in the morning daily?What does such a confession suggest about his intellect?Isnt his intellect no better than Mervyn Silva’s?So far Guujith has contributed immensely to the growing unpopularity of the government.

    The dim wit should be replaced by a intelligent,well respected officer like Shanie Abeysekera.before he destroys the government.

    Peacefully deport them now.

    No more suffering.

    Some foolish Tamil politician (not an MP) says Rohingyas can live in Jaffna! He is out of his mind. Don’t bring them to Jaffna unless you want another war.

      Instead we should deport descendants of kallathonies like you. We will suffer less.

      Siva, mate, these recent boat load is a group of economic refugies seeking a path to heaven (in their minds Canada, US), via a couple of people smugglers, and they wont want to live in Jaffna, neither would I or even you perhaps (it is a nice hood but far too quiet and conservative). On the other hand my old mate Native Vedda gets his knickers in a twist for no reason at all, I don’t know why NV cannot sponsor them and facilitate their path to the Frozen North rather than jumping up and down and throwing scat in all directions.

        “On the other hand my old mate Native Vedda gets his knickers in a twist for no reason at all,”

        I wear amude and there is no reason for me to get it twisted.

        “I don’t know why NV cannot sponsor them and facilitate their path to the Frozen North rather than jumping up and down and throwing scat in all directions.”

        I am told Namal/Gota Silk road to down under has been closed by the Australians a few years ago. The last large batch of economic refugees were transported from deep south by Namal/Gota luxury liners which unfortunately ceased trading. In 2012 about 1027 Sinhalese also reached down under and claimed refugee status.

        My friend the old codger tells me those who went from Sri Lanka, claimed asylum and comfortably settle down in foreign countries are the ones who seriously opposing new refugees entering their respective host countries.

        Are you one of them? If you are then we can just ignore you.

    Expecting this govt or any govt to stand upto the skinheads in a meaningful way is only a pipe dream folks. I suspect the statements made by rajitha & mangala were only to satisfy the international community, and were mere empty words. Nothing meaningful is going to happen and all the top players in the sanga and their Facebook heroes are going to get through this yahapalana drama without a scratch. So some unknown buffoon was made a scapegoat to show us that they’ve done something. This guy too will get bail soon and the whole episode will be swept under the rug. The most dangerous thing about the mount Lavinia attack is that these thugs that came with the skinheads attacked and wounded 3 cops, and yet the police and govt are only playing out an old script of catch & release. To make matters worse even the judiciary is taking sides with these safron robed thugs and the outcome of any case is a joke.

    “According to informed sources, the family members of the policeman who is alleged to have raped a Rohingya refugee girl had also participated in the mob attack”

    Well they had to participate because the innocent sinhala buddist cop was the victim (Don’t ask me for the logic behind that coz I’m not enlightened enough like our sanga to answer such questions). Of course this is nothing to be surprised about because the Sinhala people are masters at playing the victim card. No matter from what angle you look at it they are always the victims and then you’ll get a earful about how peaceful and great a race they are.

    The only way to go is to split the country in half, i say enough of sinhala buddist governance. There’ll never be justice or equal treatment under a sinhala buddist regime and the tamils were right all along! Even though I’m not tamil, I now fully support the idea of a tamil eelam. The tamils have suffered enough, and now the muslims are in their firing line, and the next are the Christians. We Muslims clearly chose the wrong side and should have never sided with the sinhalese. Now i understand why prabakaran had to take up arms to protect the tamil people and he was right. Anyhow I wish the tamils all the best in getting an independent nation away from the cursed, blood thirsty, heartless race.

    Police did not arrest those ” thugs in robes ” involved in several attacks on Tamils since 1956. Expecting them to do it now amuses me. Remember, the duty of the govt under our Constitution is to PROTECT the Buddha sasana, which includes protecting Buddhist monks. So don’t cry now babies.

    It was Senator Nadesan who was the first brave person to call these monks as ” thugs in robes ” in his speech in the Senate in 1958. Six decades gone yet the situation remains the same. Let all of us join together and praise the governments, past present and future, for their unfailing duty towards safeguarding these thugs monks by inaction of Police force.

      MR;
      ” …The Duty of the Government is to protect the Buddha Sasana.”

      The most important Way to Protect the “Buddha Sasana” is to Disrobe those Imposters in Yellow Sarees. who do not seem to follow even the Five Precepts, That Lay People Promise to Observe!

      The Buddha advocated ‘Free Thought’ in His Kalama Sutta, but not the ‘Freedom of the Wild Ass’, Who enters into Any Fray without Critical Mindfulness!

    I do not think there are so many real Buddhists in Sri Lanka today. These so called Sinhala Buddhists are following a different religion totally contrary to the teachings of the Buddha . Reverend Mahana Yakaas and other leading yellow robed `ganayaas`have systematically brainwashed the uneducated and ignorant followers and are driving them towards hell while they themselves live in unprecedented luxury.Today the so called Sangha Community is growing like a cancer eating itself and doing irreparable harm to the socio-political environment of the Island! Unless we get rid of these parasites not only Buddhism but the ” Lion Brand people” will go to extinction in Sri Lanka in no time. Time is running out!

    Either the IGP is blind or is part of the organization that is trying to destabilize Sri Lanka. There are so many video clips which clearly shows all those who were the gang leaders of the protest, including Buddhist Monks. Why none of them have been taken into custody. Its time IGP is asked to leave his job.

    Everybody is getting worked up over some illegal immigrants seeking refuge. Those who are Woking themselves up to a frenzy are Tamils and of course Muslims. I wonder why this sudden affection for Rohingyas? What about refugees from Iraq and Syria who will be genuine refugees leaving a war zone? Should we take them?

      It seems that you don’t live in the real world.

      “Those who are Woking themselves up to a frenzy are Tamils and of course Muslims”
      Was it the tamils and muslims who protested against the Rohingyas and pelted stones at their safe house?

      The people who did work themselves up to a frenzy were those who threatened and attacked the refugees.

      If you know the meaning of the word frenzy then you should watch the video. You would see what frenzy looks like.

      “Should we take them?”

      Why not? Your ancestors were refugees when they landed on our shores by Kallathonies.

      ” I wonder why this sudden affection for Rohingyas?”

      Since 1956 Tamils, Muslims, Sinhalese, Hindus, Buddhists, Christians ….. were scared of showing affection towards each other, under emerging Sinhala/Buddhist fascism and later VP’s brand of fascism.

      Maybe people now feel free to show affection and compassion towards each other. Do you think its not good for Sinhala/Buddhist fascism?

    This is nothing new for Tamils we have gone through a lot with racists regimes time after time ,rather than up lift the education they brought the form of standatitation good example is the currant doctors ,Igp,……take most of the officials principals all corrupted.

    Imagine a minister come and burnt the library…..they are the followers of the great teaching ,,,,, these are the course for the country,

    We thought after 83 organised program learnt the lesson but aluthgama and towards Muslim the mentality is the same.

    Am not a fan of VP but we have suffered a lot by brutual gov’t that’s the reason we wants to look after own affairs,one of the prime example is verdict for the seven convicts.

    Sell it to China who wants to invest in thick heads.Colombo becoming drugs hub aparently

    Do Police connive with saffron thugs always?

    It is a well known fact that many of the Saffron thugs who are working for Mahinda Rajapaksa have attained bhikku status during their childhood to be free from hunger. Since they ordained they enjoyed the benefit of free meals and every other facilities free of charge. They are nor discerning people on the religion or the social activities.

    The Bhikkus who led the thugs and attacked the Roginyan refugees are now challenging the peope to prove if they have attacked the refugees.

    This is enough to prove their stupidity as they do not know the meaning of the word attack. It is not only a physical attack it includes mental and verbal attack too.

    BUT IT IS NOT A SECRET THAT THESE Bhikkus are staging these dramas knowingly or orther wise for the benefit of Mahinda R where it is now claimed that these Bhiikus belongs to Mahinda Rajapaksa Nikaya where they want to create disturbances in the country to show that the government is against the Sinhala buddhist peopla.

    But what i want to know is whether there is a separate Police force belong to Mahindha Rajapakashe nikaya. Because wherever when the saffron thugs create problem in the country and breach the peace the Police go hand in hand with these thugs to ensure nothing happened to the opposing and problem creating thugs.

    The status of impunity is rampant and the Rule of Law is broken publicly by the Police for the support of group which belongs to Mahinda Rajapaksa Nikaya
