The National Sangha Council (Jathika Sangha Sammelanaya) today stated that they were organising a protest tomorrow in Maharashtra, India condemning the attacks against Sri Lankans including Buddhist monks in Tamil Nadu.

Chief Secretary to The council Ven. Dombagoda Sarananda Thera while condemning the current situation in Tamil Nadu said proper actions had been taken to stage the protest.

“There are more than 20 million Buddhists only in Maharashtra. As a result of the discussions with them and with the guidance of the Maharashtra National Sangha Council we are organising an especial protest tomorrow against violations in Tamil Nadu,” he said.

The monk said they are arranging awareness campaigns also in the country and requested the government to take immediate actions about the issue.

“We kindly inform Sri Lankan government to discuss efficiently with the Indian central government when solving questions. And it would be better if they take proper actions to use Hyderabad airport instead of airports in Tamil Nadu,” he said.

Further speaking to the media he said the government should declare Tamil Nadu as an insecure state for Sri Lankans.

“There is a large number of people monthly travelling to Tamil Nadu. We are informing our government to stop sending people to Tamil Nadu and declare the state as an insecure place for Sri Lankans right away,” the monk said. (Jayasika Padmasiri and Lahiru Pothmulla)

    This should be corrected as 20 Million, the entire world population itself is 7 Billion.

    Total Indian population is slightly over 1.2 billion. So it is quite possible that the State of Maharashtra has more than 20 million Buddhists.

    Atleast Sri Lankans are able to arrange such protests in India. Would such a thing be ever possible in Sri Lanka, where foreigners can organize protests for injustice?
