Referring to the recent remark made by President Maithripala Sirisena at the United Nations (UN) General Assembly, the National Academic Bhikshu Forum (NABF) today said something would happen exactly to the opposite of what President Sirisena had claimed before the international community.

President Sirisena on Tuesday called on the international community to allow Sri Lankan people to solve their problems on their own as being an independent country.

NABF Convener Prof. Ven. Maduruoye Dhammissara Thera told a news conference that there was no credibility in the statements made by President Sirisena and added he had made similar claims even before which were of no use.

“President Sirisena has guaranteed us that he would not let any authority to implement laws against soldiers. However, such laws were implemented soon after President Sirisena’s guarantee of not doing so,” the Thera said.

“President Sirisena has also guaranteed that he would not proceed with the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution. However, the background has already been established to proceed with it,” the Thera added.

The Thera said accordingly something opposite would occur in future rather solving country’s problems in our own without the interference of international community as claimed by President Sirisena.

Meanwhile, the NABF urged Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to withdraw the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution by making a statement in Parliament if he was truly concerned about Buddhism.

Ven. Dhammissara Thera said the proposed 20th Amendment to the Constitution would be detrimental to the country if it would be implemented because it would result in promoting separatism in the country; “There is no need for a new Constitution or Amendment to the prevailing Constitution,” the Thera added.

    The yahapalana govt has clearly divided into twpo. The all powerful portion is controlled by PM. He rules the country as of his private property. No regard to president or the parliament. Hence, president has become zero and has no value for what he says.

    The Bhikku forum knows the right and wrong. Hence they can predict correctly.

    Being a Buddhist and with utmost respect to Buddhism and the teaching therein, the curse of this country have been the so called monks in all these fronts and forums.

    Those who co-sponsored the resolution should be for treachery by a future government.

    The very mix of Religions and Politics has been the bane of this country. The politicians have given too much importance to religion to get their agendas through. We the people are like the proverbial monkey in the middle.

    Let them be specific Is it America who was the joint sponsor along with Sri Lanka going to interfere in Sri Lanka or since the Americans are not at the UNHCR is it going to be the other members of that body. The hon Rev should be specific when he contradicts the President's statement at a gathering of world's leaders.

    Bhikkus can do a great job to up bring the youth of this nation rather than getting involved in politics.To date they have failed to teach our youth to keep their trousers intact.

    What is said about the president is true! He has not lived up to being true to what he says at least that is what an ordinary citizen like me would say. People have lost faith.
