During a protest march of the Bodu Bala Sena that has picked up steam in Badulla in the past few weeks are caught on footage assaulting a child who was a part of that procession, whom they perceived was a Muslim
The assault occurred while a speaker was addressing the gathering stating that the BBS were the real owners of the country.
The individual who assaulted the child abused the child asking him ” Umba thambiyekda kiyapang? ammata hukanna thambiyekda kiyapang”, – Tell, are you a thambiya? Tell, a mother fucker thambiya? ( Thambiya is a derogatory term for Muslims)
The crowd thereafter handed over the child to the Police
