Video of controversial monk assaulting man goes viral

A video has gone viral of a controversial monk assaulting a man who had reportedly claimed he was a Christian missionary.

It was reported that the Venerable Ampitiye Sumanarathana Thero, a monk from Batticaloa, had assaulted the man for promoting Christianity in a predominantly Buddhist area.

The monk is also seen criticizing a Police officer for failing to prevent the missionary from promoting Christianity in the area.

In the video, the man who claims to be a Christian missionary is seen trying to explain his work to the monk when the monk slaps him.

He then goes on a verbal rampage before a policeman is seen taking down details of the incident.

Meanwhile, another video shows the monk stopping a man clad in clothing of a Catholic priest riding a motorcycle without a helmet and verbally abusing him.

It was later revealed that the man was not a Catholic priest.

The monk has been in the spotlight in the past as well where he had threatened Ceylon Electricity Board employees and a state village officer (Grama Sevaka).

The monk had also been accused of attempting to incite hate among communities. (Colombo Gazette)

  1. The bastard should have tried it on me. I would have sent my fist all the way down to his arse and he will never have constipation.

  2. Hopeless Christian priests. They should preach the Arabs and the Pakistanis….if they have even an iota of guts after reading bible. Arabs and Pakis will cut their dick rather than slapping. Christian’s are spoiling the peace of Srilanka

  3. Why all these happening now again it has started more and more incident will happen and will continue till end 2025 how did this monk get the courage to do this type of thuggery lord Buddha thought us tolerance and cease hatred it is very sad we are going against our own Lord Buddha teachings what the so called pastor are doing is wrong converting helpless and sick Buddhist this problem has to be handle in a different way and certainly not with anger .
    My request please do away with Saturday and Sunday holidays and make 4 poyas in a month as a holiday we are a Buddhist country this way we can promote and protect Buddhism

  4. World is recognising Buddha for his humbleness but a person who is living to preach Lord Buddhas principles is equally slapping on Buddhas face is a shame for the entire Sri Lanka hope Gottabaya will take a note of this

  5. WONDER WHY THE PERSON GOT THE SLAP DID NOT SLAP THE THUG MONG THE SAME WAY HE GOT IT. EYE FOR AN EYE. THESE RASCAL THUG MONKS WILL BE TAUGHT A LESSON SOON BY THOSW WHO HATES THEM. WE WILL WAIT TO SEE THAT REALITY. THAT IS THE DAY THAT PEOPLE WILL AWAKE FOR NOT KNOWING THAT THESE THUG MONKS DOES NOT HAVE ANY EDUCTION AND RESPECT FOR ONE ANOTHER . ROBED DUE TO POLITICAL INFLUENCE BY THE CURRENT RULE.

  6. Whole country is reeling. Even former IGP was in hot water for manhandling a person. We have one law and it should apply to this slapper.

    • Like the law has been applied in the West to all those priests and pastors that have been molesting children for decades and settling out of court and avoiding prison sentences?

  7. Gomez! think you need another 30 year reminder of what happens to smart arses! And, call me a clairvoyant, because I think that will be a reality very shortly.

  8. This gentleman now has first hand experience of what happens to people who turn the other cheek.Turning the other cheek, only emboldens the enemy when they realize they can act with impunity.

    The government panders to these miscreants and gives them unwarranted influence.

    Stop being victims. Organize and retaliate. Instil fear into your enemy. If your enemy wants a war, give them their wishes.
