While claiming that TNA MP S.Sridharan should be arrested over the speech he made in the Parliament glorifying the LTTE leader, the Bodu Bala Sena today accused the parliamentarians who were present in the house during the speech for not immediately reacting to the speech.

“We all know that Parliament is not a place with much discipline. MPs in there are always creating chaos. The most unfortunate thing we witnessed with the speech of MP S.Sridharan was that no one stood up or objected to it. Instead they listened to the speech with much care,” BBS General Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thera told a news conference.

However, the Thera praised those spoke against the speech in Parliament when it was over and said MPs should make speeches on Sinhalese national heroes in Parliament at least for a minute.

He said that MP Sridharan had violated the Sri Lankan Constitution by making a speech on a slain terrorist leader right where the Constitution was drafted.
“Therefore he should take into custody and take legal action against him,” he said. (Jayashika Padmasiri & Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Just like the same parliamentarians are silent on your racist hate speech for which you should be taken into custody and take legal action against you. Although the parliamentarians are silent on both occasions because there is no money to be made in either case. Incidentally this is a good outcome to us public. I'm sure just like you have been banished into insignificance the public will do the same to others who want to divide and profit from this country using racism and hate. Be gone and stay gone boy!

    Did lord Buddha asked the monks to go on protest march, do politics and enter parliament etc? Are the monks breaking Lord Buddha's teaching, what is the punishment for them?

    This is the time we should take thousands of court cases against the TNA or LTTE to get compensation and arrest all Terrorist murderess in sri Lanka and abroad for killing of thousands of Sinhalese and Muslim and Tamil people

    To object some one have to listen to the entire speech, then the objection was done and the speech was deleted for the hansard.
    Looks like BBS is getting ready for the next general election ?

    At a time, When the true voice of common Sinhalese not arise through their representative in the society, their should be a way to raise their voice too. So this is it. The person behind the action is not so important, what is important is what he do. As far as this concern we fully support BBS and salute their course for the sake of our mother land. It is very clear that non of the above commentators ever criticized ruthless LTTE as much as they criticize BBS now.

    Hat's off to BBS. Sridharan, had the guts to come to Colombo and in the parliament itself he humiliated the whole country!!!! Its a very serious situation. Having known very well making such statements are forbidden he somehow made it. Also, we should appreciate Minister SB to respond him appropriately. Strangely, though we have so many patriots in the parliament, even for minor issue they talk big, apparently these guys would have been hiding under their tables or in deep slumber when Sridharan was making that controversial speech. Shame on you those so-called patriots!

    Just imagine if some MP speaks glorifying Nazis in German parliament of in EU - what would have been his fate? Sri Lankans suffered coz of this behaviour for almost thirty years standing only on knees, and now the speeches giving in the august assembly is disgusting and distasteful. Hence bring the appropriate laws.

    To us LTTE is dead and buried thanks to MR's political leadership. There is no reason to react every time LTTE is mentioned by some fellow. Now we are marching forward.
