Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera was yesterday questioned by the Buddha Sasana Ministry’s special police unit set up to investigate religious disputes.

The Thera said he was asked to report to the special police unit last evening and give a statement on the remarks he had made at a news conference held on February 19 at the BBS Head Office in Kirulapana.

“This is a move to tarnish my image and that of our organisation by some religious extremists,” he told Daily Mirror.

However, special unit OIC M.P.D.I. Kulasekara said the questioning was a result of a complaint filed by five Muslims who had been disturbed and worried by the remarks made by the Thera. The remarks were posted on the BBS website.

The OIC said the men had initially filed a complaint against the Thera at the Kirulapana Police Station and statements had been recorded by them. (Piyumi Fonseka)
