    How did this innocent buddhist priest die? The Bodhi Bala Sena must look into the welfare of the buddhist priests and not stray away from its responsibilities by attempting to find fault with the Sharia law of the Muslim Community and also trying to put a stop to the abhaya dress of the muslim ladies. The Bodhu Bala Sena which has the blessings of the Defence Secretary, must concentrate on improving the living conditions of its own priests and followers before trying to look into the welfare of other communities.
