A personal lawsuit has been filed against Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka Thera in Colombo Chief Magistrate's Court today by four complainants on the allegation of high noise levels sustained by the residents living around the Alan Mathiniyaramaya Temple in Polhengoda where Dhammaloka is the Chief Incumbent.

Residents alleged that the exposure to such high level of noise constituted a health risk and there were sufficient scientific evidence to prove that danger due to the loudspeakers operated by the temple.

The complaints requested the Court to impose an appropriate order to prevent the temple being continuously amplifying such high levels of noise.

In the complaint, the residents said that they had on several times informed certain authorities and the Dhammaloka Thera too about the difficulty that they had to undergo. Yet, no actions were taken.

Complainants, Gavinda Jayasinghe, Dr. Kalinga Kaluperuma, Diren R. Halok, Milinda Moragoda and Kamalesh Johnpillei had filed the personal case citing Ven. Dhammaloka Thera as the defendant, in line with the Section 98 (136) of the Criminal Procedure Code, where people are permittd to file personal complaints in a Magistrate's Court without Police.

    Lol! Our monks and imams and priests are never simple. They all appear to be so simple. Underneath they hustle.

    Yes if that is used to disturb others the speakers must be banned. But not the prayers right to worship for fajr

    The Buddhist philosophy is all about living a simple life without troubling fellow humans and animals. Look like this man violated both the great principle.

    Places of Religious Worship, Shops, Mobile Bead Trishaws, Buses with very loud Horns should all be banned. In Wellawatte every few yards there is a shop blaring Music from the pavement. Isn't this some form of abuse to the public!
