BBS back to old habits, Muslim Council writes to IGP

BBSThe Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has been accused of going back to its old habits of making hate speeches against the Muslim community.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has written to Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara saying BBS General Secretary the Venerable Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thero had threatened a repeat of the Aluthgama violence against the Muslim community, during a speech he made in Mahiyangana on 23 June.

President of the Muslim Council N M Ameen said in the letter that the Venerable Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thero had also threatened the police in his speech.

Together with the letter to the IGP, Ameen also enclosed a DVD containing the speech made by Gnanasara Thero in Mahiyangana.

“As you are aware, two years ago on the 15thof June 2014, Ven. GnanasaraThreo incited the people of Kalutaradistrict to cause violence, death and destruction to the Muslims of Aluthgama and Beruwela. The rioting caused the death of two persons, destroyed house and property and inflicted damages to businesses worth billions of rupees. The repeated calls by the Muslim community for a commission of inquiry and punish the perpetrators have fallen on deaf ears. Two years on, Ven. GnanasaraThero is proudly claiming that he will repeat Aluthgama in Mahiyangana,” Ameen said in the latter.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka called on the IGP to immediately initiate an inquiry against the said threat and take necessary police action against the provocation to violence.

The Muslim Council also called on the IGP to conduct an inquiry on the Aluthgama riots against the Muslims and take necessary police action against the perpetrators. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This BBS is used by both MR and RW – This is a set up by a foreign hand . May be Ranil is using BBS to strategically to make MR unpopuar as if its a work of MR

  2. Does not matter whether a MUSLIM or a BUDHIST Priest.
    Arrest and charge the culprit who creates a disturbance.
    Law must be equal in the eyes of people

  3. What is the real policy of the ‘yahapalana government’ on these hate campaigns of this wicked thera he has done enough damage to countrie’s reputation around the world.This country belong to all Srilankan citizens not only to this mad thera.

    • Before arresting,Gnasera the fanatic muslims should be arrested.The muslims including the politicians in the muslim community have to stop their activities against the other communities.The muslim politicians think that they are only for the muslims unlike the others in the parliment who work for all the communities.Muslims should stop getting funds from wahabists to propagate their faith among others.I,think very soon there will be an organisation to boycott the establishments of muslims.The president and the prime minister turn a blind eye towards the activities and attitudes of these fanatics because of their votes.

  4. Why cant BBS structure a way to publish what some Islamic preaches say in Friday prayers and In some Madrasas …then people will understand who is lying
