The Police today recorded a statement from Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera at the Slave Island police station for allegedly threatening a Buddhist monk on Wednesday.
 
The statement was recorded after Mahiyanganaya Pradeshiya Sabha member Ven. Watareka Vijitha Thera lodged a complaint with the Slave Island Police against the Ven Gnanasara Thera and several other bhikkus over the alleged disruption of a media conference organised by the Jathika Bala Sena (JBS) at a hotel in Colombo on Wednesday, April 9.
 
The Ven. Vijitha Thera alleged that Buddhist monks belonging to the BBS, including its general secretary Gnanasara Thera, had stormed the media conference and threatened to kill him, and disrupted the pre-arranged programme. In his police complaint, the complainant has called for a police inquiry into the actions of the BBS members over Wednesday’s incident.
 
Police said that they are going to record a statement from the complainer, Ven Vijitha Thera later.

    Our lord buddha never ever teach this way! BBS well known but someone using Them by remote for their benefit

    The ultimate in compassion Lord Buddha preached: ‘Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burnt’. On uncontrolled speeches he said: ‘The tongue like a sharp knife…..kills without drawing blood.’ On peace he said: ‘Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.’ All conflicts in the world, wherever it may be, could be brought to an abrupt end only when the human beings realize this truth and respect it.

    BBS was right in wanting to stop that event but they went about it in the wrong way.
    Vijitha thero is driven by hidden political and racist hands, obviously for some benefit. Jathika BALA SENA - note the name - has obviously been formed to counter Bodu BALA SENA and was bound to get into trouble sooner or later. Vijitha thera should give up the saffron robes

    We will need to stop domination of specifi communities in Sri Lanka.

    Protectors they are Sunday, 13 April 2014 04:28 AM

    JATHIKA BALA SENA to counter BODU BALA SENA. This is a poor attempt to discredit Bodu Bala Sena. They should know there is a huge people power behind Bodu Bala Sena, not just monks who making speeches. Many Buddhists ready to die to protect Buddhism in Sri Lanka. via DM Android App

    I suppose that we need BBS to protect the buddhism in our country. There are no any ministers or parliamentarian with buddhists. Well done BBS..

    Ready to die to protect Buddhism? Meaningless! You must attain Nibbana and show the way to others if you want to protect Buddhism!
