Interesting turns of events in Sri Lanka in post-Dharaga Town time


In  press conference held yesterday but not covered widely by the local media, Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero, the secretary of Sri Lanka's Buddhist extremist Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) said that they had stopped and urged the Muslim extremists also to stop.

He demanded the Sinhala Buddhists not to be misled by rumors since the clashes only benefited the elements that are against the nation.

The vociferous Buddhist monk rejected BBS having any connections with communal violence in Beruwala electorate and other places and said that the controversial rally in Aluthgama town was not organized by them but the Shasanarakshaka Balamandala of the area.

He pointed out that he used psychological tactics in his fiery speech and at the tail end of it urged the people to disperse and not to demonstrate across Dharga Town.

But in his speech, Gnanasara Thero says the Moors would see their end if they set their hands on any Sinhalese and the shops in the are would be vandalized.

Gnanasara Thero rejected allegations that the BBS was handled by Defense Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa. He said the BBS had not carried out anybody's contracts. 

Meanwhile, police spokesman SSP Ajith Rohana said that the police would not grant permission to hold rallies that incite racial or religious hatred.

He said that the intelligence wings would be deployed to study the meetings and the organizers of such rallies would be dealt legally.

Meanwhile, the police spokesman further said that the police that is investigating the burning of Nolimit fashion store in Panadura has found a hard disk in which the recordings of CCTV cameras are recorded.

The hard disk has been sent to Moratuwa University for recovering files. Police said that the premises had had 24 CCTV cameras around it. 

In another turn of events anti-Bodu Bala Sena Buddhist monk Watareka Vijitha Thero was accused of committing the injuries to himself to show that he was abducted and tortured.

The monk was found several days ago fallen near a river in Panadura area with minor injuries in the private areas of his body, hands and legs bound with pieces of his own robe.

The Buddhist monk was admitted to national hospital and the police investigated the incident. Judicial Medical examinations have proved that the monk had inflicted injuries to himself with a key.

SSP Ajith Rohana said that the monk had obtained the services of one of his cousins to have him transported to the place where he was found fallen.

The cousin has admitted that he transported the Thero into that area on the request of the monk.

The police spokesman said that the monk would be produced in court and sued over lodging a false complaint.
