    This crooked monk is a right wing Tamil terrorist sympathizer. He gets his funds from the Tamil diaspora, (especially from the Norwegian and Canadian) to create trouble in Sri Lanka. The previous regime was corrupt, so is the current. That is something, Sri Lankans have to live with. Corruption is in the eye of the beholder. In the ‘bastion of freedom’ – the US of A, their is legal corruption. They do it legally by campaign donations, lobbyists/lawyers from K Street NW, DC. Sri Lankans say hell with the lobbyists and lawyers and do the old 15% or 20% (always nice to minimize lawyers where possible ;). My point is both the current regime and the previous one has the capability to develop the country even with the ubiquitous internal corruption. The country cannot develop if it has corruption and trouble makers, specially sinister one’s like this crooked monk. It is time for the present government to make sure an ‘accident’ happens to this guy or maybe a ‘heart attack’ (perfect timing now that this crook is in the Welikada prison). Or conspire to have this crook along with the rest of the thugs on a doomed aircraft (our friends from Israel would be happy to loan a drone). Too bad the previous regime knowing that this crooked monk was funded by the right wing Tamil diaspora did not do anything about it. They had many opportunities and also were well capable of doing something like what I suggest. Perhaps, they thought they could manipulate the situation? God knows best. This is how business needs to be done if the country is to be developed. Folks, you need to look at the greater good. It is tough for nation building if a regime has to deal with these types of goons along with the innate corruption (which you will not be able to eliminate quickly – in time perhaps). Even Lee Kwan Yew, most people in this forum seem to admire was a crook, but he was a ‘good corrupt crook’. Mahinda was close, seem to have had good intentions but unfortunately got mad and got lost in his internal family feuds. I hope the present jokers (Mr. Bean and Gajaman) are able to do something about this crooked monk or the ugly head of communalism would rise (God forbid if this crook is accidentally ‘martyred’). If that were to happen, this country will be going to the sinkhole of history as a weak, failed nation – allowing the right wing Tamil diaspora to wage a new Eelam war and an ISIS inspired goon war in the East. That would be terrible indeed for this tear drop in the Indian Ocean.

      Why then Rajapakshe supports him further ?

      Even today Mahinda Rajapakshe added, calling him Ape Hamuduruwo – our monk- as if the arrest was not seen as fair by him ?

        My thought is that Mahinda wants to get back in the game, he will use any tools available to get a competitive advantage. Be it the use of ‘ape hamuduruwo’ to show affinity to the uncritical, the gullible segment of the Sri Lankan population to gain support. He knows his resources are getting scrutinized by the present government for no other but selfish reasons. He will try everything he can. On side note, do you think Mr. Bean and Gajaman will use the confiscated monies from MR and the gang for state purposes or keep it in Seychelles and the Bahamas by transferring the money to a new account? :)

          yes, I still believe the DUO will make him a lession soon. At least to see the Gorilla is caught by police – we had to wait until Mr Bean and Gamarala is elected… there we ought some respect to them.

          My wish is – Rajapakshes to be out of lanken politics- then only the day will be dawned srilanka to march towards WONDER of asia.

        Rajapakshes are well infomred, people are so stupid and they would stay so – so that they cant manipulate them easily.

        See, the questions raised by PM – stay unanswered by JOURNOS for their reasons why ?

        Yes. You are correct. A language is a medium of communication to the audience. So, it has to be a language the audience understands.

        Is this Sinhala Only Language? The Protester only know Sinhala. They are communicating all right, what they want and what they think.

        Give bail
        We will stay until tomorrow
        Thambi (Muslim) outside, our monk inside
        ask them to give bail

          Thanks Amarasri
          You are very kind
          I can speak Sinhalese, but not very fluent. I’m going to learn Sinhalese actively to improve my command, not to understand what G’sara utters but as my respect for this language.

            Real Peace,

            You are welcome. A Language, a news item need to communicate to the audience.

            (Can’t gera Ganasara) There was a typo. Should have been

            (Can’t hear Ganasara). The Recording was poor with the background noise.

            “not to understand what G’sara utters but as my respect for this language.”

            Now. What is a language? A medium of Communication.

            In the Land, there is a communication problem and a myth problem that is the root of the problems.

      now, why would you associate anything and everything that is caused by radical racist sinhalese factions as prepared by tamils?
      have you no sense of remorse or responsibilities?
      be ashamed of yourself. mahinda no longer needs money from elsewhere he has robbed me, you and ever tom dick and harry. this radical mindset of yours and unjustified hatred you show towards the other communities is what’s making them sustain you sorry ass clown !
      this monk is crooked. every bit of other things i agree 100% except for your now expired hatred and medieval mindset and skepticism to accept what you and everyone of your community has empowered. CORRUPTED, CRIMINALS WHO WERE ALLOWED BY ASGIRIYA TO BECOME A MONK. #FAILED #RELIGION

      We the minority folks would go against jackass, but uncivlized filled srilnka will never recognize the problem properly.

      So long the stupid masses allow to do anything that naively, nothign will change in this soceity.. Rajapakshe has turned srilnaka a small PAKISTAN…

      those social indiacator such as higher literacy rates etc are just nothing ..

      average thinking should be changed if at all this nation to raise their head. That can take another 100 years. Meeharakas will support meeharakas.. that is the Rajapakshe theory.

    Dangers of Over reaction

    This is for all those people who call them selves Buddhists. The way you are behaving is exactly what non Buddhists want. They revel ay your comments. You are doing a job that they would love to do but are afraid to do.

    Rev Gnanasara has behaved in a highly outrageous manner. There is no doubt about that. But is it up to us to insult him and call him by all sorts of names? We should not sit in judgement of one of our priests whatever he has done. There is the judiciary of the country and the prelates there to do that.

    He is wearing the saffron robe and we should respect the robe. Of course not all of us are experts like Sharmini Serasinghe to know exactly what the internal details of a saffron robe are. But a saffron robe is a saffron robe – period.

    Also, we do not have the qualifications and experience that privileged lay people like Sharmini have in disrobing monks, errant or otherwise. So we should leave such tasks to the leaders of the Maha Sangha and not behave like a lynch mob or a disrobing mob.

    To subject a person in saffron robe to such severe verbal attacks is unworthy of Buddhists. Anyway it is not going to correct him. Those who do that are committing a great Akusala Karma and are destined for all kinds of punishments. Even if you do not believe in such things – it is not a fair thing or a sane thing to do.

      Edwin Rodrigo,

      Maybe you are stupid enough to ignore or even condone a thug who makes a mockery of monkhood.

      I wonder whether this Gandassara was ever ordained, or just thought
      it would be beneficial to start wearing a saffron robe.

      The days when you would respect any Buddhist monk are well and truly behind us sadly, thanks to the uncouth thugs that pass for Buddhist monks these days in Sri Lanka.

      “To subject a person in saffron robe to such severe verbal attacks is unworthy of Buddhists”

      Oh really? Have you never heard how this man harrangues those he hates in choice filth? That’s ok with you?

      You should start worrying about the akusala karma committed by your Barbary Lion!

        Lankan,

        I do not know whether you are a Buddhist or a non Buddhist. If you are a non Buddhist, then do not read any further because you will not understand.

        You start with, “Maybe you are stupid enough to ignore or even condone a thug who makes a mockery of monkhood. “

        Please read again the 2nd paragraph of my comment, “Rev Gnanasara has behaved in a highly outrageous manner. There is no doubt about that. But is it up to us to insult him and call him by all sorts of names?”

        Can you understand that? If you insist I am wrong, then just go ahead and say what you like. According to Buddha’s word, doing that would be a papa karma.

        As far as I am concerned, I do not believe in such things but as long as VG wears the saffron robe I cannot do it. That is all.

          Edwin Rodrigo,

          I would feel sorry for your position normally.
          Due to your self-imposed sanctions,as you claim,
          the likes of that imbecile can feel
          high and mighty and run riot with impunuty.
          Only you could unshackle your mind.

          However, I don’t really believe that.
          You probably support his ideas, despite
          the occasional acceptance of the outrageousness
          of his behaviour

    I have lot to say about this drama. But what i can say now is all these recent incidents are link together and orchestrated by same elements who ruin the country back in dark era. It is very clear and can prove with evidence. Mahinda Rajapaksha, basil and Gota alone with other defeated bankrupt politicians are now trying to grab the power by crook or hook using racism as their only weapon for survival. Gnasaara is a used by them. Gammanpila, wimal Weerawansa are key players in this saga. certain media outfits and handful of media people also involved. Mahinda Rajapaksha was well known for this kind of things. Now he want to act fast to get rid of allegations and legal issues. He also trying to save his children, brothers and spouse from going to jail. THEY HAVE SOME HOW MANAGE TO MANIPULATE THE PRESIDENT.( With or without his knowledge) They can lie and manipulate one or all, but there are certain people who are closely watching this situation and will act at right time. I accuse RW and the civil society for not act immediately at the right time and facing this situation. Gnasaara must remain in prison or he should not enjoy the freedom to create racist ideology which is ruining the country. It is important to keep watching this chauvinistic forces.

      They talk about srilankens Journalism…. to be free and fair,

      Journos selves dont react interviewing the former idiots and to bring facts about them.

      Third force of a country is said to be media -but lanken media are bribed and they work on the agendas of former rascal men. This is the greater problem that srilanken faces today.

      Derana would go on licking the balls of Rajapakshes, no matter they no matter injustice done by Rajaapkshes are well known to them.

      This is the saddest reality of the country today.

    It looks like the Judge has been threatened by the Yahapalanaya Government and the Rowdy monks. Earlier a news said Ranil had requested to send a report of what happened in Homagama to Wildlife Sanctuary’s Ayatollahs. Homagama Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake is resigning from the case after a stand off of ‘even if a was gun put on his head he would not reverse the verdict he gave out’.

    But there were news that Ayatollahs had said that Gnanasara had done what due from to the country.

    May I ask a question from the Royal Government Prime Minister.

    “What in the world made you to refer a case under court to Ayatollah’s?” Can you show me a legal precedent for this?

    At last justice prevailed. Hats off to homourable Magistrate of Homagama Courts. He has dispensed justice rightfully. This should serve as a lesson to all that no one is above law. Ganasara cant be Buddhist Monk. He doesnt even have any looks of a monk.

    Now the Government should look in to the incedent happened during the last regime In Mannar Magitrate Courts.
    The people responsible should be dealt with according the law whatever the position they may hold

      This pseudo monk is remanded on charges of contempt of court. When he is released after 9th February do we go back to square one with the original sin remaining in tact. I hope the magistrate orders that he should remain remanded until he apologises to the court. I remember watching US Court cases in which when relatives of victims get overheated and disrupts proceedings, they are jailed until they apologise to the Court.

    I am ashamed. Yes, I really, am ashamed. Gnanasara, I do not wish to call you a Buddhist monk, as you are far far away and nowhere near to being one of that kind. You are insolent, feather brained, uncouth, unwashed and adulterated. You are a hatchet man employed by the that incorrigible, good for nothing, vulgar MARA for the purpose of demonizing dissenting voices. Gnanasara, you are a blackguard and a scoundrel of the worst order. And more you are a fortune seeking bounder.

    Gnanasara, whoever gave that name to you did make an unpardonable blunder, as you do not appear to understand its meaning ‘Gnana’ or wisdom.Your ‘Guru’, whoever may be, should be castrated for foisting a guttersnipe of a Golaya like you. The government should not think twice before these odious and unruly thugs in saffron robes are de-robed and thrown in the quad in their numbers. The other day we saw your upbraid at the Homagama Magistrate’s Court. By being such an unholy coward you have desecrated the Buddha Sasana. You defiled the Buddha’s robe venerated by the Buddhist fraternity world over. Do you know that if not for the gracious magnanimous gesture on the part of the learned Magistrate, you would have been made to rue the day you were born.

    Finally, I would like to invite your attention, as you do not appear to have read it,the 63rd Stanza of the Dhammapada. “If a fool knows his folly,he may thereby, become wise. But, that fool who thinks he is wise, is indeed called a fool.

    I have also to ask you how you come to own a limousine, a Benz, for that matter, when many a Buddhist monk in the remote areas of this country cannot afford two square meals a day.

    The incidents at the Homagama & Mannar Magistrates Courts were led by a Sinhala-Buddhist Monk & a Muslim Minister respectively.
    These two categories have had always thought that the Law of the Land does not apply to them.
    The latter got away with an Apology in open court! This man continues to be a Minister to this date.Sad,but true.
    The former,I bet my bottom,will continue to be a Law unto himself; After all,he has the backing of MaRa who has converted Buddhist Temples as his Bunker!

    Actually I took one step back and observed the situation here.

    I won’t call him a monk, because he is not one. Anyone can robe themselves with a yellow colored fabric, and it does not make them a monk.

    Gnanasara is a politician of a different kind because he operates differently from the normal. Negativity and stirring up the bile in people is his hallmark. He thrives in it. He is even not here, but enjoying himself in the prison hospital, but he has been able to wind up the bile of virtually every blogger in this column, making them lose few minutes of their precious lives due to seething anger. Now multiply it by several thousands of groups of citizens, estimate how much negativity and loss of life that he is causing even without raising a finger. How?

    He does not have to do anything. The media does it all for him. He gloats on the publicity he is getting because through that he could stir up millions people’s bile producing organs. See how much negativity he has, that he is sowing it everywhere, with the help of the press and multimedia.

    In that case what is the antidote to this negativity. People want peace and no probes to touch their sensitive organs.

    It is simple: stop giving him publicity, stop reporting on him. The press,the media can put a stop to all this: ignore him just iike we ignore an unbalanced one if we meet some mad nobody on the street. Ignore Gnanasara, give him a wide birth, and take no notice of his antiquities.

    All you Mahinda bashes, have some respect for the man. What ever said and done you walk the street fearless because of him. When the country was on its knees, back against the wall and while all politician agreed to divide the country this man stood up to the occasion for his people under immense world wide pressure. Against all odds, he pulled off victory from the jaws of defeat. Even the Superpowers were shaking their heads in disbelief.

    Puran Appo You are right it is because of Former H.E that every one is enjoing peace and democracy. I had the oppotunity of moving with him closely.He doesnt listen to people who tell him good things its unfortuate. I told him he should be like Emperor of India The Great Ashoka.

    Had he acted against the so called monk Ganasara He would have won the election and still be President I belive that monk Gnasara worked for the downfall of former H.E on some outside forces instigation for some benefits.

    Puran appo! When it comes to winning the war, you give credit to MARA.But MARA chooses to disown the unsettled bills OF SLTB, SLBC, ITN, LAKE HOUSE etc. running into millions relating to his election expenses.He categorically says those do not relate to him. Public servants like Lalith Weeratunga has to face Rs.600 million fraud on Silredi. I pity the man.I have seen the elections since 1947 but has not seen such a dirty rascal like MARA.
