Video: Senasinghes Do It Again!

The brother of Sujeewa Senasinghe, Dr. Namal Senasinghe has threatened a diner at a star class restaurant with death, according to a video doing the rounds on social media.
Shaminda Herath, who sports a beard had been at a restaurant, on Saturday night when the brother of the minister had accosted him.

According to Herat’s Facebook page, Senansinghe had “threatened him with death, jail and a whole other plethora of abuse”. The short video shows Senasinghe repeatedly threatening Herath, saying “We are Sinhala Buddhists, and this is a Buddhist nation” assuming Herath was a Muslim due to his beard.

The Senasinghe brothers have continuously been in the limelight, with the Minister himself recently allegedly sending a private message on Facebook to a user saying “kariya hukawanawa,” after the Facebook user had criticized Senasinghe for using the floods for his political advantage by pasting his pictures in dry ration bags that were distributed among victims.

In September 2007, Chaminda Senasinghe, his other brother was hit on face with a pistol butt by Malaka Silva at the Bistro Latino Restaurant.

      Everyone fails to realise that this man Senasinghe has acted (over reacted) under provocation. Not totally unwarranted … but could have controlled his anger, I suppose.

        Paddy,

        Don’t be knive. Racist comments cannot be tolerated by any circumstances. We should look into the possibility of reporting this man to the NHS where he works as no non Sinhalese/ Buddhists will be safe under his care. He has to be reported and I hope somebody will pursue this.

        These are political thugs who have been brought -up poorly. Sujeewa! Pls get your act together and your brother under control. Don’t embarrass Yahapalnaya. Shame!

      The brother of Sujeewa Senasinghe, Dr. Namal Senasinghe

      “According to Herat’s Facebook page, Senansinghe had “threatened him with death, jail and a whole other plethora of abuse”. The short video shows Senasinghe repeatedly threatening Herath, saying “We are Sinhala Buddhists, and this is a Buddhist nation” assuming Herath was a Muslim due to his beard.”

      Yes, you are a Para-Sinhala, Para- Buddhist. If you are a Dr., as is claimed, please remember that you are a Para-Sinhala, Para-Sinhala, Para- Buddhists, who came to Lanka,the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

      Why not get your DNA tested, that will show that you are a Para- Sinhala. Why not get back to your Para-Homeland, South and East India.Why not take your other Para-Cousins as well, such as Para-Tamils and Para-Muslims.

      The Support for you being a Para is given below.

        plantation workers- the nation is full of it-
        independance from western rule was your misfortune.
        He exhibits the quality of university education.

        The island will never change until there is a WW3 centered around asia and most inhabitants die like in europe’s WW1 and 2.

    Why CT fallsto that level if you guys want to be clean ? What matters is if Sujeeva behaved again wrong ?
    If people have to be free from all emotions, srilankens should be replaced with civilized folks. That is like asking pigs to fly.

    mental illness seems to be widely prevalent in this country.Why can’t they just take some medication like in the west before their illness becomes worse.

    there seems to be a stigma attached to taking treatment here,as a result they are undressing themselves in public and losing respect.

    This guy behaves and sounds like a real thug.
    Perhaps Malaka Silva should give him a good cracker across his ear too and put him in his place.
    His brother is the Minister and he is behaving bigger than the Minister.
    Typical Sri Lankan mentality.
    Yahapalanaya true colours finally coming out !!!!!
    What a joke. This country has started back sliding with thugs like these around.
    “Sinhala Buddhists and Sinhala country”- Words uttered such as this is the reason why division is caused in our country. Only an uneducated, illiterate patriot would say something like this. Wonder where he got his doctorate from and for what?
    Dr. Senasinghe ?? …my foot or rather my A–!

      The tourist industry should be concerned about it as bearded people,
      specially tourists from Arab countries will dread to step into the country if their lives are threatened. We should have “tourist Police’ force like in some countries to safe guard these places so that Malakas
      & Serasinhes do not show off in places where the tourists gather.

      Tourism is our bread and butter and the govt.should not grudge spending
      some money to safe guard the tourists.

    As voters we thought we had disposed of the Rajapakses for such incidents and many others. It’s disheartening to see that the party we elected is no better. Utterly shameful behavior. The racial comments were completely uncalled for as it had nothing to do with the incident. The fact that any person from the majority community can reach within himself an pull out racism is such a disgrace. It makes it worse because the person he was shouting at was a sihalese but mistook him for aMuslim because of his beard. This is how deep racism is in this country. Such attitudes created the LTTE. We don’t need another uprising. Building Hospitals as he claims, has no future but ones good chracter can teach generations to come. He uses Budha’s name in vain. The Budha will never ever endorse such behavior. I personally don’t like to bring religion into this but Namal should know that he lives , works and is a citizen of a Christian country but comes to SL and pulls out an ugly, low down racial card. Reflects his upbringing. The fact that Namal is a doctor means nothing to peace loving citizens of SL but decency is the hallmark of this society which we should cultivate and protect.

    I am not sure what provoked this incident and comments don’t defend or justify anything which Shaminda Herat might have said. This should have dealt with differently. What shocks me most is how somebody can call a MP to complain on a civil matter?? Shows the levels of a political system and Political culture. #nothinghaschanged since the Rajapakse’s

    PM and President sir,Over to you.

    I am a Sri Lankan. A Sinhalese Buddhist by birth.

    I am so embarrased by this stupid, dumb clown.

    Didn’t we elect a brand new regime to get rid of exactly this kind of 3rd class Jerks? Is this the result we get?

    Cheers!

      Being ashamed is one thing but reelecting the same brand is another thing.
      Alas you have no other brand and only WW3 can change the island.

      you never had law and order from the time of independence.
      Every 5 years after the elections there was murder of the loser.
      yet you love the english gentleman’s game- how hypocritically embedded is that?

      the problem is your culture unlike the peace loving enterprising Czechoslovakia’s. The beast in humans like the flag.

      You would be better off never saying you are sinhala buddhist but keeping it private like the Anglo-Saxons.

      Please don’t blame Buddhism. These are Sinhalese who were probably low caste converted to Buddhism, thus known as Sinhalese Buddhism. Beyond doubt they are an utter shame and insult to the great preaching’s of Lord Buddha. However much, they will always show their low caste uncivilized behavior even though they obtain a doctorate, wear trousers and shirts and able to speak in English.

        According to Dalai Lama there are no Buddhist at Lanka.

        Yours is a counterfeit version of Buddhism with begging bowl and 5 star with Fried pork, arrack and dansal. Even Thai folk hold the same opinion.

        Cameron said it rightly when he said Nigeria is a corrupt nation to the nigerian president- it is very true. He said we are sending aid to be informed or they keep on coming back as refugees.

    High level political thuggery was the only thing missing during this rule as the President has matched the previous regime in every thing else. like corruption,nepotism & lawlessness. The people will be watch
    -ing as to what action the police will take on this serious matter as a diner was questioned about his ethnicity by another diner in a star class restaurant and what was the hotel security doing at that time Diners, like Arabs sporting a beard will be reluctant to visit leading hotels as they will not know who will accost them with death threat for sporting a beard.

    IGP, on assumption of his duties had said that he will fear no one and the police will act independently and lets see whether he will stand by his words, in deeds. God knows where this country is heading to and
    my appeal to the politicians is not to encourage their close supporters
    not to indulge in political thuggery.

    So apparently the chap who posted this (one Shaminda Herat according to his facebook) was behind bars for his role in a bank robbery at Union Bank several years ago. In the meantime, Muslims jump into action to feel offended at every remark, even though there is nothing racist or wrong in what the doctor said (it is a sinhalese buddhist country isn’t it? what is wrong with asking people to live by buddhist values?). Shaminda herat has selectively deleted responses by Namal on facebook.

    Two sides to every story. Pity the fools who get all their info through the media.

      I agree with Brasher, It is a Sinhala Buddhist country, we also should uphold the Buddhist values. It is good that this was published with the video clipping- the man Namal seems to be after having some alcohol and others were trying to calm him down. Apparently, the guy with a beard has made some unwarranted comments to this man known as Namal. I am very glad that no physical violence was there among the parties involved. However, the message is clear; the Muslims must understand that either drunk or not, mistaken identity or not; SRI LANKA-SINHALA-BUDDHISM link is undisputable. It should be loud and clear to Muslims.

      Oh! by the way I don’t have any respect for Senasinghe’s political links. If I am not mistaken his brother is kind of a lap dog. Yes Sir what can I do for you, anything for you sir type of mouthy fellow.

      The family seems to take the “Buddhism label” to hoodwink the voters. We, the majority Buddhists are better off without these fellows.

    Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist Country? Violence is the first language we know. It is in this Sinhala Buddhist country that periodically bloodletting is done. Even the monks are running amok provoking and enjoying violence. Violence is everywhere, in speech, in action and simmering under the often placid smiles of Sinhala Buddhists. Alcohol is consumed to excess in this Sinhala Buddhist country of ours. Hatred and envy rules the roost of most of Sinhala Buddhist viharas and temples of our triple blessed country. Fraud is practiced in massive scale from the top Sinhala Buddhist to the poorest Sinhala Buddhist.

    This fellow Namal’s alcohol fuelled threat of violence is mild compared to what the much respected Buddhist Sinhala monk Gnanasara threatened to unleash in Mahiyangana recently. The Sinhala Buddhist IGP who should have arrested Gnanasara for fomenting riot and violence is nowhere to be seen.

    What a great Sinhala Buddhist country ours is.

    All these clowns come out of the wood work only when they have access to power and security.
    Then they are CARDBOARD CHANDIYA’S. Take the security away and the buggers are like straydogs,

      “Take the security away and the buggers are like straydogs,”

      Socialism by SWRD created it in 1956. All police stations of Colombo had a new breed of Southern Sinhala Buddhist Sub Inspectors who behaved like beasts in gang lands and created the sinhala buddhist gang masters.
      60 years on you can’t change attitudes unless the island is bombed like Syria and the population is drastically reduced.
      Its called the donald trump style for a better economy.

    I would like to firstly ask this thug where he was when his brother got pasted by Malaka. Only reason he his talking is because of his brother being a minister. He forgets to realize the brother came into power because the ruling party spoke and behaved in the same fashion he his behaving today – don’t forget more elections to come. he claims to be a pure Sinhala Buddhist and a Sri Lankan but left the country and living in England …. Joker

    Terrible overreaction with strong undertones of inciting racial hatred, bigotry and abuse of power. After all who the hell is Sujeeva, for this clown to want to ring him up as shown in the video. Obviously trying to scare people that he has connections which we do not give a hit about. Calling himself a doctor is a disgrace, and watch it he might end up minister of health. these guys who have not madeit overseas will now want to return to the country like the imbecile Gota to capitalize on connections. These are the carpet baggers and hyenas who are looking for opportunities to inflate their egos that have never ever been blown up before in their careers. Good idea to report the shit to the NHS, an enlightened and cultured country like the UK would not want suchclown and bigots working for them.
