Video: Rawana Balaya insists on having new police unit withdrawn

7 May 2014 07:44 am - 20     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A delegation from the Rawana Balaya organisation today handed over a letter to the Ministry of Buddha Sasana demanding that the special police unit set up to look into religious disputes be withdrawn before the Wesak Poya Day.

The organisation’s secretary the Ven. Ittakande Saddhatissa Thera, when handing over this letter to the deputy minister, asked that the President be requested to withdraw the newly set up police unit because it served no useful purpose.

The Ven. Saddhathissa Thera warned that in the event the new police unit was not withdrawn before the Wesak Poya Day deadline, the members of the Rawana Balaya organisation would be reluctantly compelled to move in and occupy the ministry building.(Video and text by Darshana Sanjeewa)

    Why don't they first eradicate corruption from the country. The coming colours are not good at all.

    Yes what view would Lord bhudda have I wonder if he were around. It's these fools getting involved in dirty politics and power strugles that are shaming buddha. Not random foreiners with tatoos.

    We respect the strength of Maha Sanga as they have done against many wrong doings even against Foreign Rulers. So the present Sinhala Buddhist rulers j\have to obey to Maha Sanga.

    One Senawa wants the unit and the other Balaya does not want, suddenly they are very active.

    Izmy Wednesday, 07 May 2014 09:16 AM

    They should have gone to the defence ministry since this unit was establised by them not the powerless buddha sasana ministry.
