BBS ridicule chief prelates during meeting with Mano

2161

The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) today ridiculed the chief prelates during a meeting with Minister of National Co-existence Dialogue and Official Languages Mano Ganesan.

BBS General Secretary Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero said that there is no point in having talks with the chief prelates and obtaining their opinion on national issues.

Gnanasara Thero said the chief prelates are there just to appear before the media, look good, meet Ministers and make statements.

He said that the Minister must approach the monks and officials at ground level and discuss issues with them.

A tense situation also arose when Gnanasara Thero asked if the Minister accepts that Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist country.

The Minister said that Sri Lanka is a place for all communities while the Sinhalese Buddhists are a majority.

Gnanasara Thero said that reconciliation cannot be discussed if the Government does not accept that Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist country.

He also warned that Muslim extremists are operating in the East and action must be taken against them.

Gnanasara Thero said that the leaders of the Government have been warned of consequences if some key issues are not addressed. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. If Government brings a ban on new religious places of worships, mosques, churches, temples, kovils, statues I believe religious conflicts vanish. New mosques coming up is the main cocern to BBS.

  2. Gnanasara is thug wearing a robe and is a disgrace to decent Buddhists and all Sri Lankans. He comes up with these kinds of media stunts just before one his many on going court appearances.

  3. What, Gnasara Thero said is correct.The muslims are of the opinion whatever they do,people will not care but the Thero is revealing the truth.The goverment is turning a blind eye towards the activities of muslims especially in the east.Muslims get huge amount of money from Arab countries and use them to buy lands and business establishments.Further the muslim fanatics from the middle east,want the the muslims in Srilanka to convert the people to Islam which is a false religion.Also,the muslim population is increasing at a high rate due to many reasons such as no family planning and more than two wives.For example,see Bangladesh,there the population is very high and that is why,they are illegaly immigrating to Burma,India and even to Srilanka.The U.N O,should pass a resolution that all families should have only two children irrespective of their faith,then only we can save the world from disaster.

    • Karuna, maithri, muddiththa-Values for which Buddha preached are perverted by ignorant small pea brain sized
      beings calling themselves human beings in this 21st Century.what a pity. To have been blessed with a philosophy which is a gift to us, they pervert it.

  4. Rev. Gnanassara is the saviour of Sinhalese culture and Buddhism in Sri Lanka,the Sinhala soil.

    Tamils areMuslims are allowed to stay here if the Sinhala Buddhist approve their stay here and if not the Tamils could go to India and the Muslims should go to Pakistan.

    If the Minister does not accept the truth that Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist Country how the the Rev. Gnassara dialugue with this minister.

    • Hahaha What a joke…

      Then the Sinhala people will have to go back to India and all the way to Africa from there because it is where the human species evolved from and migrated across the world.

    • Gnanassara is no saviour he is the destroyer of the sinhalese. he is disgracing them internationally and exposing the fascist thinking they have.

      all decent Sinhalese will stand up to these fellows who are giving the Sinhalese people a bad name and show they do not agree with this rotten thinking and show that Sri Lanka belongs to all Sri Lankans.

  5. Gnanasara hit the nail on the head with regard to the role currently played by the Chief Prelates !!! Ganesan is well over the top with regard to his enthusiasm for diluting the image of the majority Sinhalese population. Nowhere else in the world an attempt ismade to force the majority to learn a minority language – it is always the other way round. SL is all upside down now !!!

  6. Gnanasara is a racist the Minister should not have met him at all. Further Gnanasara is before the courts on a violation case and this is not the time for a Minister of the ruling party to meet this racist.

  7. I am not a practicing Buddhist but thank you, Gnanasara Thero. We are on your side. We have to preserve our identity and put a Stop Sinhalese Genocide. Dont let those false propaganda fool you.

    President of the Socialist Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka,

    Your Excellency,

    Sri Lanka History

    I would like to bring to your kind notice the following facts regarding the real history of Sri Lanka, which no doubt you are aware as a matured and a veteran Politician who has devoted your whole life in politics. The education you have received in the olden days no doubt will speak to the real truth of our History.

    As you are aware, we were taught that in the olden days, it was the Tamils of Indian origin ruled our country (Sri Lanka). Vijaya was a Tamil King and Sri Wickremasinghe was a Tamil King. The last King was Sri Wickremasingham whose original name was “Kandasamy”. His name was changed to Sri Wickremasingham. These are real facts, which nobody can deny.

    Today the real history is not taught, and the students do not know the real history. This is purposely done to avoid the history and to show that it was Sinhala Kings who ruled our country. This is one of the reasons that the opportunists are trying to portray that they are real Sinhalese, whereas they are mixed by religion and ethnicity. The history is that people from India came to our country and married Sinhala women and settled down. Therefore, one cannot claim that they are real Sinhalese. Likewise, the Arabs came to Sri Lanka for trade and they did not bring women from their country. They married Sinhalese women, and the origin of Muslims came into being.

    Further, it is the Indian culture the Sinhalese are following, although they do not admit. To prove it, the Sinhalese have no Festival, and it is the Hindu Tamil New Year which falls in April, they have embraced it as ‘Sinhala & Hindu Tamil New Year’ . In fact, it is the Hindu Tamil New Year. Likewise, the Buddhist are worshiping Hindu Gods – The Kataragama Kovil is a Hindu Kovil, and the Buddhist have embraced it as their temple. I do not wish to cast any aspersions on a religion, as it is belief of everyone and they are free to worship or embrace any religion.

    However, we should think that we all are human beings, and the population of Sri Lanka is all mixed, and no one can claim that they are real Sinhalese – like “Sinha Le”. The mothers of Tamils and Muslims who were Sinhalese, have sacrificed their lives for the sake of their children.

    In India King Akbar was one of the Kings of India, and they do not claim that he was a Hindu, like in Sri Lanka. They claim that they are all INDIANS.

    I cannot understand why the Officials and the Government has diverted from the real history. Real history should be taught to the present generation as was done during the olden days. It was the Politicians who are responsible for today’s state of affairs. This was done to gain political power, adopting the method of dividing the people – divide and rule policy.

    I hope the present Government would change the curriculum of education, and teach the real history. A country’s history cannot be changed in order to suit the majority community. Facts are stubborn. India does not change their history to suit the majority community. We should take an example from India.

    Today some politicians are trying to focus an image by distorting the real history mainly to come into power by dividing the people of our country. We should all accept the fact that one cannot claim to be real SINHALESE (Sinha Le) as they are all mixed (Tamils, Muslims, Sinhalese, etc. Of course, we should be proud of our country irrespective of caste, religion, ethnicity etc. We all should call ourselves as SRI LANKANS. My view is that, if real history is taught in our present day schools, the coming generations will not have any divisions. They will live in harmony among all communities as one, that is as SRI LANKANS.

    I am sorry, Your Excellency, for taking your time, and hope you will give much thought to this question, which is vital in the present day context, where opportunists are trying to sow seeds of hatred among other communities.

    I, from the bottom of my heart, wish you all the best in your future. I hope you will take bold steps to see that these opportunists are eradicated and will make our country prosper and peaceful for all Sri Lankans to live in harmony.

    Thanking you,

    Yours respectfully,

    A SENIOR CITIZEN

  9. I fail to understand why Gnanasara is not in jail. This government is merely using him as a pawn (just like the previous government did) to play in to their agenda.

  10. Venerable Gnanasara Thero has become a National Leader because he is the only one who is standing up for the right of Singhalese Buddhists.

    • Gnasara is a crazy donkey. He should be sent to a mental hospital. He enjoys lots of privileges from some of the fundamental Buddhist MPs. He is a disgrace to Buddhism. According to Buddhism ‘ every action has a reaction’ so this rowdy monk’s action will end soon.

    • Is it only the Buddhists wbo have a right to live in SL? Pl know that Buddhism is Foreign religion in SL. Was Buddha a Sri Lankan ? All religions are foreign religions in SL. B t w all Sri Lankans came frlm other nations exept the original Raaksha people . So pl stop braging about SL being a nation only for Sinhala Buddhists. Btw there is only one nationality in the world that has never h.ad mixed marriages and tbat is the Ultra Orthodox Jews.5

  11. …..A tense situation also arose when Gnanasara Thero asked if the Minister accepts that Sri Lanka is a Sinhala Buddhist country and further emphasized.that Tamils and Muslims migrated/came from India. Gnasen replied even Sinhala community came from India..explained and gave a history lesson to Gnanasara Thero…he thought him how Prince Vijaya came to the Island and met Kuwani,,,,, According to the legends, he and several hundred of his followers came to Lanka after being expelled from an Indian kingdom. In Lanka, they displaced the island’s original inhabitants (Yakkhas), established a kingdom and became ancestors of the modern Sinhalese people.

    • Yes, it is true that Sinhalese are descending from Vijaya but Vijaya and his people were not Sinhalese. Sinhalese nation was born in Srilanka through gradual transformation to a unique civilization which includes a unique language and a culture. Other than immigrants, you don’t find a Sinhala civilization out of Srilnaka. Can you say same for the Tamils? In all aspects they are a community that morris Tamils in Taminadu. So country of Sinhala nation is Srilanka and the country of Tamil nation is Tamilnadu. Tamils of Srilanka are a minority Tamil community, they cannot claim nationship in Srilanka.

      • Enrich, The Sinhalese too are immigrants who came from India so it is stupid to fight over ethnicity. the whole human species has been migrating across the globe. if you go back you will find african links too.
