Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera was arrested by the Police today when he arrived at the Cinnamon Garden police to give a statement.

A warrant was earlier issued by the Court on the Thera for taking part in a protest defying court orders. “He was out of the country during the previous weeks and returned only yesterday,” BBS Chief Executive Officer Dilantha Vithanage said. (SD & LSP)

    He had it coming. Same way, all the extremist, religious zealots from all religions, from East, North or South must be locked up.

    Tahapalanaya is great. It is the best posible idea to release this guy. If he was remanded for any longer he will become a hero, and will try to gain mileage with it.

    If their is one good thing that has happened in this country, it is the news this arrogant thug in the garb of a Buddhist clergy has been arrested at last. It should have happened many years ago, but he lived with the grace of his creators i.e. the Rajapakse clan. No one should be allowed above the law whether they are thug Buddhist priests shaming the robe or even politicians wearing clean white.

    Implement the law with equality for everyone. Hold the scales evenly with a blindfold so you do not see who it is.

    He goes to where he belonged all these years.

    Velusumana Tuesday, 26 May 2015 10:36 AM

    About time. This so called clergyman made us buddhist ashamed. The monks should also punish him.

    Long waited has happened, good move

    Jayantha Gnanakone Tuesday, 26 May 2015 10:48 AM

    This is silly by the GOSL. If not for this guys and other friendly thugs of his Rajapakse would be still President today and for another 6 or more years. Thanks to this MONK and his goons in Beruwala and Aluthgama attacks many Muslims who voted for Sirisena would have voted for Rajapakse and made him President again. So folks say Thank You to this monk and GOSL/ Wattakas too.
