Azath Salley’s claim proven wrong: BBS

19 February 2015 11:43 am - 55     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) said today provincial councillor Azath Salley should leave politics like a gentleman because his claim that not even 5,000 people would participate at the Nugegoda rally was proven wrong by the participation of a massive crowd.

BBS General Secretary Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera accused Mr. Salley of making racial comments about the rally.

“We request respectable Muslim leaders and Muslim religious leaders to take action to stop Mr. Salley from making derogatory comments about Sinahala Buddhists and provoking the youth,” (Ajith Siriwardana)

    Is there no law in SL under which this yellow robed thug/hooligan could be charged and dealt with for ever for inciting racial and religious discord and disharmony? He is a hate monger - a plague to this peaceful, tranquil nation that wants to live and prosper in harmony.

    BBS was created by Gota It is similar to a violent Buddhists Monks in Burma.We need to know who is funding this racist group and should be banned.No more Fundamentalist violent groups in Sri Lanka be it Hindus/ Muslims/Christians or Buddhists.

    Mason Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:10 PM

    BBS do not rouse communal tension. You did it once and got away because the UPFA regime was on your side. It will not be the same again, because we want to enjoy the peace brought in by the Maithri/Ranil regime. It is a shame the supporters of the disposed president needs your company to boost their morale.

    We are united Sri lankan, BBS you cant divide the country or unity of all religion

    BuffaloaCitizen Friday, 20 February 2015 04:45 PM

    When a poverty stricken family hands over their reluctant son to the closest Buddhist temple and when such a person is sodomized daily by the priests, a Gnanasara is created bent on creating havoc in society for the havoc that has happened to him in the past.

    La Vijaya Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:53 PM

    So you are still in SL. We thought you have left the country As a good Buddhist I am humbly asking you sir, it is best for your leader and country if you do not speak

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 February 2015 12:56 PM

    BBS got gift packages from Weerawansa also, do you mean that.

    Bala Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:56 PM

    Race and religion was brought to the front and spoken of at that meeting by the various speakers. You are adding oil to the fire and doing the provoking and threatening now.

    Sylvia Haik Thursday, 19 February 2015 06:57 PM

    Thiis arrogant Gandasara Thera is trying to establish that any criticism of the BBS is a criticism of Buddhism. Sadly some people buy into this rubbish.

    Hello machan, Koheda mechcharakal hitiye. Tikak mahath wela wagei???

    OMG from where has this monk come - AGAIN ?

    shut up.. via DM Android App

    Man Friday, 20 February 2015 01:00 PM

    If there were more than 5,000 people why did not they take photographs of every nook and corner of the meeting premises to prove it without any dispute. It proves that their comments are fishy.

    Shami Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:23 PM

    Gnanasarsa should leave the Buddhist clergy, like a gentleman too. But then he is NO gentleman but a thug.

    riz Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:28 PM

    BBS wants problems in da country . Then only they can survive and stage their drama. BBS should be banned and ghanasera should be arrested. He tries create another ethnical problem in da country. In short he z a terrorist.

    Sensible Citizen Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:42 PM

    The only mistake the organizers made is inviting this BULLdozer to the meeting. He has already smashed the momentumSensible Citizen

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 20 February 2015 03:26 AM

    Gallabodde Thero should be arrested. Over to IGP. He is causing communial disturbance.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 20 February 2015 10:24 AM

    This fellow talks bull shit. He would have had a head count of people who were passing that way, after work.

    patriot Thursday, 19 February 2015 07:48 PM

    randy Thursday, 19 February 2015 08:00 PM

    How could people come then? We collected the money and paid for a bus to get over there.Not everybody has a car or motocycle.Nobody who organised this event paid anything to anybody.With me there were more than 40 people from the same village and brought our own food too.Dont talk utter rubbish.

    Neither the race nor the cast is not a barrier or a concern to be a buddhist. A real follower of load Buddha cannot be so aggresive and never hate the followers of other religions or belonging to other races.

    Dan Thursday, 19 February 2015 08:04 PM

    The only conclusion is most of the English speaking people are UNPers. But, we know what their percentage is....

    Fassey Friday, 20 February 2015 10:36 AM

    Your voice will not be heard, as you have no regards even among majority buddhists so pls shut your mouth.

    TripleX Friday, 20 February 2015 04:44 AM

    Shaa now Gnanasera or " ungnana sera " is " Bow ! Wow ! Wow " ing up at the sky. Let Mahinda, Gotabaya and their foolish followers catch them from falling.

    rana Friday, 20 February 2015 10:41 AM

    Yes very true so continue to support him.

    Aku Friday, 20 February 2015 07:16 PM

    Ohh... The BBSgits are still free and not in prison??? Hey you BBShits - Mr Azath Salley is a much better person and Politician than you bunch of idiots will ever be... You have no SAY in OUR Country!!!!!

    Ganesh Friday, 20 February 2015 10:52 AM

    Azath Sally is a politician who has not anything bad or harmful of anyone Why is this monk always barking on the road instead of staying in the temple and meditate for the people

    Dawatagaha Mosque Friday, 20 February 2015 10:52 AM

    Azath Salley as always proves that he is immature and uneducated.

    kukula. Friday, 20 February 2015 02:50 PM

    Dear Rev, if any one bothered to take a count of buses parked between jubli post and mirihana one may estimate how the crowed was brought to Nugegoda.
