Who Gave Authority To BBS ?

By Tamara Wickremabahu – 

None of the Heads of the Countries of the Commonwealth I believe would endorse the forced entry of the “Bodu Bala Sena” (BBS) into the Human Rights Festival yesterday. Also, the delegates would see this incident as a scandal. This unruly act has to be condemned by all who respect the values of the commonwealth.

The organizers had a particular purpose in holding this exhibition. It was to inform the local and the international community the type of undemocratic governance that is prevailing in the country. There was an open agenda for the festival and had nothing to hide about it.

GnanasaraAs it is a fundamental right of every citizen, the organizers have every right to free expression.  Who has given authority to the BBS to stop free expression of anyone’s views?

Instances of violations of human rights are reported not only from the North but also from the South and that after the end of the war. In the recent times, a worker was killed by the Police while the workers were protesting against the pension scheme proposed by the government. At another time a fisherman in Chilaw was shot by the army while the whole fisher community was engaged in a protest against the hike of fuel prices. It was this year that people at Rathupaswela who lost their sources of drinking water due to pollution caused by the effluents of a glove factory.  During the protest at Weliveriya against pollution, three youth were killed due to gun shots fired by the army. At another instance dozens of prisoners were killed inside the Welikada prison.

Only those who have become blind as a result of their greed for power and wealth cannot recognize these incidents as violations of human rights. Instead they brand the activists as traitors and supporters of the channel 4 and Tamil Diaspora.  Obviously those critics who cannot understand these as violations of human rights are serving the political agenda of perpetrators of violence.

If any wrong was done by the organizers of human rights festival, the BBS ought to know what law permits them. To do anything beyond the law of the land would mean taking the law into their own hands. It should be noted that this is not the first time that BBS has behaved in this unruly manner.

But on no occasion have the authorities taken them to task for the illegal behavior by the members of the BBS. Does it mean that the authorities are affirming and encouraging the unruly behavior of the BBS for a political purpose? Also are the authorities manipulating them to undermine democracy to their advantage?

There have been occasions when the authorities deploy the army or the police undemocratically to control people’s democratic actions but using religious groups to curtail people’s freedom is a recent phenomenon.

The event shows to the whole world what is happening in Sri Lanka as regards democratic governance.

    They are sacred cows! They are sponsored by the all powerful Defense Secretary. They can go anywhere they like, they can do whatever they like!! But, they will not demonstrate against casinos, brothels or drug peddlers. You know why they are there.

    Now, can someone tell me where in the world the Mahanayakes are. Are they in a deep slumber? Where are the real Buddhists of Sri Lanka????? Shame on you people, you are a gutless mob, who are allowing your shoulders for the fake Buddhists to travel on.

      Poor Mahanayakes. They are powerless. Most people have forgotten Mahanayakes. They hold honorable job in Buddhism and they have no say. Even if all Mahanayakes come to the road they can’t change anything. Just leave them alone to rest and sleep.

        You may be correct about MahaNayakes.. But those Mahanayakes, should come up and denounce strongly these thugs who use Yellow saffron to insult basic human values…
        When you think in this line, SL Buddhist Mahanayakes don’t deserved to be chief monks or religious leaders…

      Well, well the UNP should file a case against BBS and have them locked up. Time for their impunity to harass people to end!

      IF the coward, shameless and crooked Ranil WIckramasinghe does not take BBS to court we have confirmation that he is in fact collaborating with Gota the white vane Goon who is the Patron of Balu Sena to promote racism and distract people from his DICTATORSHIP and DESTRUCTION of the UNP – and I am NOT a supporter of Sajith the stupid and racist idiot!

      well said – if these thugs continues their thuggery with the support of Gota. Sad to share the sorrow and pain they bring to the Buddhism and shame to all Sri Lankan ..the majority and true high profile Buddhists its time they go after them and stop all these craps once and for all.

      God Bless Sri Lanka – and hope the wold leaders arrest and punish all the wrong doing culprits – with immediate effect Rajapakses family and his associates

    This incident proves one thing – the US citizenship holding Public
    Servants open clash with a hidden rival – Meryn is now out in the open.
    The begining of the end is drawing near. It is good that Mahanayakes
    keep silent letting political rowdies end each other for peaace to
    be re-born.
    In Gotas opinion the Imperialist backed CW has no room in the Dynasty
    ruling agenda well in progress. Sri Lankans are in for a long haul.

    Is the BBS sponsored by the Tamil Diaspora to discredit Sri Lanka at this critical juncture?

    The Mahanayakes live cocooned in their Aaranyas with no access to Computers or dissenting World media, and are not aware of the destruction the BBS is causing to the Buddha Sasana, in the eyes of the rest of the World.

    The Mahanayakes should be shown photographs of these half naked scum, by the devotees in their respective Territories, so that action can be taken against them.

        China asks Lanka to protect and promote human rights

        Nov 18 (PTI) In a surprise move, China today asked Sri Lanka to “make efforts to protect and promote human rights”, backing calls by India, Britain and other countries at the CHOGM summit in Colombo to address allegations of rights abuses against the country’s minority Tamils. “Due to the differences in the economic and social development of different countries, there could be differences on human rights protection

    BBS and others are thinking KP ( Kumaran Padmanathan) who was responsible to supply all the weapons , cynadie and dynamite and TNT to kill and maim over 100,000 people including soldiers is NOT the LTTE Leader till he SURRENDERED to the D/ HC in Malayasia to escape a very long prison term as the MASS murderer , then who can be a LTTE sympathise in Sri Lanka. WHY people in Sri Lanka Loose their memory so fast, because Gotabaya needs them to do so.

    In Sri Lanka today the people the Defence services who eliminated the LTTE are now traitors with people who supported to eliminate the LTTE, but the REAL LTTE guys are patriots. What a wonderful country is my old motherland.

    Right round the world we see these type of religous extremist preaching hate and destroying the fabric of peace and coexistance in society.

    Govts must take strict action to arrest and disrobe these villains who hide behind religon to propogate their own message of hate. Hate speech should be outlawed and strict sentence imposed on such actions. Clergy must restrict their activities to their places of worship and not get involved in politics.

    Commonwealth values have been ignored when Dr.Shirani Bandaranayake was impeached in an unlawful manner. Perhaps MR might have been influenced by Mase-Tung’s philosophy. It appears whether Mase-Tung philosophy will replace the Commonwealth values. BBS is there to do all the spade work. Had Channel-4 been there, they would have given a clear explanation as to what was lying behind this drama. Utter disgrace to Sri Lanka.

    Shame to Buddhism. Buddhism preaches good morals and ethics. Such kind of monks activities seem to be thuggery type which should not be encouraged. If not, the world will laugh at us on our religion and they will think that this is the new way of religion in Sri Lanka.

      I HAVE THE GREATEST RESPECT FOR BUDDHISM AND THE BUDDHA.

      BUT YOU DO NOT GET VERY MANY BUDDHISTS PRACTICING THE TEACHINGS OF THE BUDDHA. THIS IS A NEW VERSION.

      MAHANAYAKES ARE BLESSING EVERY DAMN CRIMINAL WHO GOES TO THEM GIVE ATAPIRIKARA AND WORSHIP THEM.

      THE BUDDHA DID NOT WANT TO BE WORSHIPPED.

      HOW THE HECK DO THESE MAHANAYAKES OR ANYONE IN SAFFRON EXPECT OTHERS
      TO FALL AT THEIR FEET.

      IT IS AN INSULT TO HUMAN DIGNITY FOR ONE HUMAN TO WORSHIP ANOTHER HUMAN

      ISLAM DOES NOT PERMIT ANY HUMAN TO EVEN STAND UP IN RESPECT LEAVE ALONE WORSHIPING.

      ITS TIME FOR GOOD BUDDHISTS TO CLEAN UP THEIR HOUSE.

      Chanel 4 is incorporated as a media outlet and accepted as such. Therefore this gives the authority whether they decide to report on the Pope or the Mahanayake.

    “Who Gave Authority To BBS”

    Simple answer is Grease Piya and Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi.

    Close Associate of Gaanu 5 Nanasara (Not Dilantha Vithanage or Bodu Bala Sales Rep)was telling that this Gandasaara is trying various Hotels to eat Tasty foods and he still couldn’t get a good hotel and he is still searching. Gaanu 5 Nanasara was trying “Muslim” Hotels in various parts in Sri Lanka but he didn’t satisfy. Then Nanasara tried “Hindu Hotels” but with the same unsuccessful.

    Recently he visited “Hotel Sirikotha” and he was above get what he was looking for but unfortunately it was not sufficient to satisfy his taste. May be Nanasara will not again visit Hotel Sirikotha but we have to find a good Hotel for him to satisfy his blood lust.

    Everybody should remember twisting Nanasara’s testicles and squishing his middle one is same like twisting or squishing testicles of Grease Piya and Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi.

    Maha Nayakes are not in slumber. They are very much awaek. Just before the CHOGM started they made an appeal to the public to display the National Flag in their homes. What right do they have to ask people to do that. If it is a Buddhist ceremony, they could make such an appeal to the Buddhists to display the Buddhist Flag, or a Buddhist celebration of national importance to display both the Buddhist and the National Flags. Why do they ask people to display National Flag for a non-Buddhist thamasha. Don’t they know that it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Home Affairs for such action. Have they assumed Ministerial responsibilities on their on like BBS assuming on their own Police responsibilities. The whole problem is that even the Maha Nayakes are unaware of their duties and responsibilities (and also does not really understand the Buddha’s teachings).
    BBS has stated that they are going to lodge an entry at the Police that they were assaulted by the UNP. It is a hell of a complain. They went to UNP HQ uninvited and to create trouble. Under the law of the land it is categorized as criminal trespass. After trespassing property of others can one claim justice?. To my knowledge this is clearly criminal trespass.
    One thing is sure looking at the TV News. Unlike on other occasions where they leave victorious in high spirits, this time they had to retreat crest-fallen with their tails tucked between their legs.

    Dear all,

    Budhism already died in sri lanka because the budhist monks all already got in to politics, sex,fraud and business.no one can bring back the budhism back to sri lanka.The main partner in destroying budhism is BBS and JHU.Many of us belive that the BBS is trying to help budhism , but in the long term it is in contrary and budhist went away from budhism.

    How can be believe that the machang ganasara can control his sexual /other feeling , where he cant even control his mouth ?

    Why MONKey DR.DILANTHA IS not engaging his kids in becoming bikku or bikkuni? or him self?

    How come on earth you can increase your population while you want everyone to join in becoming monks. may be by making unofficial babies????

    Why you worried about other religion , if you believe in yours?

    why mr.puke , ranapuke is not sending his two daughters to become monks/bikuni? may be he send his wife to become bikuni so he is enjoying with nisanthe.

    how anyone can belive in a religion which promotes casino.

    WHEN THE BUDHISM BECOME OFFICIAL RELIGION OF SRI LANKA ? WHEN WE GET INDEPENDANCE BUDHISM IS NOT A RELIGION OF SRI LANKA , SO WE NEED TO RAISE IT TO UN to get rid of this.

    The acronym “LTTE” is the panacea of the Rajapakse regime for everything. But the government does not have to look far the former LTTE butcher Karuna Amman is right there in the parliament. Why cannot the ‘patriotic’ Buddhist monks hold a ‘sathyagraha’ at the Parliament until Karuna Amman is brought to justice and also the Defence Secretary who arranged a fake passport for Karuna to travel to UK.
