  1. AT A TIME WHEN SINHALA BUDDHIST ARE TREATED WORSE THAN VAGABONDS AND AHIKUNTIKA PEOPLE. HERE IS NONE PRESENTLY TO TALK EFFECTIVELY FOR AND ON BEHALF OF THE DESPICABLE HELPLESS SINHALA/ BUDDHISTS, OTHER THAN REV. GAALAGODA ATTHE GNANASARA THERO. INSPIRED BY RANIL/CHANDRIKA FORCES, THOSE WHO SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE MAJORITY PEOPLE ARE MAGINALISED AND VICTIMISED. SO IRRESPECTIVE OF OUR PREJUDICES, WE MUST THTK AND SUPPORT THIS AUDACIOUS PRIEST.

  2. MOIEZ ,YOU ARE AMPLY DISPLAYING YOUR RACIAL HATREDNESS , WHILE DISCLOSING TOUR TRUE NAME. THIS IS NAURAL FOR A DOUBLE TONGED LIZARD LIKE YOU.

  3. Investigate all his earnings and ask how he can enjoy a luxury life and also how can he own a Mercedes Benz and build so many buildings, if he is a true Buddhist monk he should live as a simple life and teach Buddhism but instead he is showing his thuggery style power to government officials.Jail him for life.

  4. This man must not be treated as even vaguely representative of anything to do with either the Sinhala people or the followers of the Buddha Dhamma.This man is a hired agent of the biggest criminal group this country has ever known.He was obviously been given a contract to disrupt court proceedings as the the Eknaligoda case will see the so called Godfathers of crimes behind bars if the law is allowed to take it’s course.The police must investigate this man and the motive behind his actions and charge him as an accomplice to the crime of disruption of a murder investigation which is a gravely serious offence.The AG’s department should instruct the police to take action.This is not a simple case of contempt of court as people would like to think. He must not be granted bail in the lower court.He must know a lot about the Eknaligoda case judging by his planned attack on the court. This man is a criminal and he must be treated like one.A shameless animal parading as a human being.
