Police calls on Sri Lanka's violent BBS but action unlikely
The general secretary of Jathika Bala Sena Ven. Watareka Vijitha Thero has complained to the Slave Island police that he was threatened by the BBS.
Watateka Vijitha Thero and BBS member Kirulapone Nanda Thero have also been summoned to the police on the same time.
BBS disrupted a press conference of a inter-faith movement press conference held in Colombo against the racist organizations that are raising their head.
The press conference was summoned by an organization called Jathika Bala Senawa and the calling letter was signed by Ven. Watareka Vijitha Thero.
Muslim religious representatives were also present to participate in the press conference.
A group of BBS monks led by Buddhist monk Galagodaaththe Gnanasara invaded the press conference and questioned the organizers. They threatened the Muslim clerics and the Buddhist monks.
Watareka Vijitha Thero was forced to apologize but he later complained to Slave Island police that he apologized due to threats to his life.
Officer-in-Charge of Slave Island police and other police officers witnessed the violence but did not act to prevent it.
