Speaking to the Daily Mirror after his vehicle met with an accident in Pitakotte Ven. Maduluwawe Sobhitha thera, Chief Incumbent of Kotte Sri Nagaviharaya, stated that he suspected foul play.

The Chief Incumbent explained that a small white van had been parked outside the temple from 11 this morning and the incident was intended to delay him attending the Adhishtana Pooja at Sri Dalada Maligawa this afternoon in support of the release of former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka.

“This was most clearly an attempt to delay this afternoons proceedings. Although we saw the van parked outside the Temple, we were unsuspicious of it. But now in hindsight it is clear that the vehicle was there to cause some harm,” he said. 

Ven. Sobhitha thera informed the Daily Mirror that there would be a delay in his attendance at the Pooja, however he would still be present. “There will be a delay, because I had to go to the Police and lodge a complaint but I will be there soon enough and nothing can deter me from my plans,” he said.

    Yes, causes no surprise, Buddhist priests murders are the ministers of this Govt.

    Tagline Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:30 AM

    I totally agree!

    Saman Saturday, 09 October 2010 03:11 PM

    It's the buddhist religion (accually it's not even a religion) causing all the problems for this country.

    nalaka pathirana Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:35 AM

    NOW WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT IS 'MAHINDA CHINTANAYA'?

    What about Ven. Soma thero?.Who did it to . Why nobody remember that?

    vaj Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:43 PM

    Where the hell you were when Ranil signs CFA with Prabha, Mr. Maduluwawe???

    vaj Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:45 PM

    You bought CBK, but you couldn't MR. All this dramas because f this....

    vaj Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:48 PM

    Did Lasantha's killers come in a white van?

    chami Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:04 PM

    What we can see here is clear beginning of a dictatorship. Even i doubt, how long we can post comments over here as well.

    Jay Ranaweera Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:07 PM

    Rev Sir, Where were you when SF purposely & thru jeolousy annihilated,court marshalled Major Pannipitiya who liberated East?

    RationalThinker Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:29 PM

    agree but disagree. monks should concentrate on practising Buddhism and following the way of the Sangha. However, also remember all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing

    TONY Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:39 PM

    No visa for US singers over a video scene. Preach teachings of Lord buddha at US in the US. Order death threats to venerable buddhist monks at home. Yes, we are another myanmar

    bandara Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:43 PM

    May be another one of those "white" vans belonging to the Defense Ministry!

    sf Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:45 PM

    This is for speaking openely on behalf of Sarath Fonseka, they try to surpress everyone, but we respect you Sobhitha thero..

    senra Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:47 PM

    JR all over again. But this JR has a feeling for the country not like the JR before, who could not care less

    bandara Thursday, 07 October 2010 01:48 PM

    You sound like the Defense Secretary speaking!

    Praha Friday, 08 October 2010 01:22 AM

    CFA was adhered to by MR till the last moment.
    Do you know that?

    Ravana Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:13 AM

    This is what you voted for O great buffaloes of this country. There is more to follow !

    Pukka Sahib Thursday, 07 October 2010 02:16 PM

    Hamuduruwane, You SUSPECT foul play. That's right. You are driven by SUSPICION. Please remeber, "Innocent until proven Guilty." If the Chaura Pawla or Govt. Gundas wanted to harm you, they could have done it on the way to kandy; in Kalaniya, Mahara, Nittambuwa,... You don't stand in the way of Rajapaksa Rule. So, please stop making accusations based on SUSPICION.

    Dilan Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:13 AM

    Police will note down.and put it to the trash.

    nishan Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:13 AM

    Ow, Hamuduruwane, people know everything now and if you can read these comments you will understand. Thunuruwan oba weni therun aaraksha karai...!

    gamarala Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:13 AM

    Dear Reverant Sir. Tripple Gem Bless you.

    Doha-Qatar Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:15 AM

    Good luck sir,where are we heading to in this country, can't expect what will happen.

    Watchman Saturday, 09 October 2010 02:27 AM

    Kmburugamuwe thero may be blind with age and political gains!

    Siriheti Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:29 PM

    Sobhita hamuduruvane, raise the voice against injustice, this is the heritage of Bhikkhu, you have kept that. May the Triple Gem bless you.

    Kaurna Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:34 PM

    This is good news to Tamil
    White Van is not now following Tamil.

    Ranjith Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:42 PM

    Oh, Dinesh. It looks like that you are not a Buddist.
    We are practising our religous rights in Sri lanka as we like and you may in another Gulf country?.
    Sri Lanka is free and safe and there are many differences but this is the nature of the democrasy.
    Your statement of "No frrdom to exercise religeous rituals" is totally wrong!.
    Budu saranai.

    Gemunu Friday, 08 October 2010 02:22 AM

    Yes, SF urged MR to cancel CFA reported

    Shantha Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:24 AM

    piyal Thursday, 07 October 2010 03:54 PM

    we believe in ditta damma vedaneeya karma
    may noble triple gem protect our most venerable loku sadhu

    Henry Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:02 PM

    Even Buddhist Priests are not safe in this country, so how will it be for an ordinary citizen.

    chin Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:05 PM

    This is thinking negative.

    Dinesh Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:26 AM

    No freedom to excercise religious riuals for a buddhist clergy in this buddhist country.

    Defender Friday, 08 October 2010 02:44 AM

    These people convert any incident into cheap political gains. If something happened in some other country & there is a political advantage, they would immediately 'Credit' it to their account by 'Debiting' the Govt account.

    nala3 Thursday, 07 October 2010 04:22 PM

    Democracy in Buddhist way?

    awake Friday, 08 October 2010 03:03 AM

    looks like you forgot the daladamaligawa incedent and the fort railway sattion fast, where police interfered with the monks practcing there releigion. the monks did not have the freedom to protest as theye were labled disturbing the peace, but wimal w protests in from of UN and causes havoc but is later visited by the president.

    yes we have religious and all other freedom.

    this is the nature of autocracy my friend.

    Tranceperancy Friday, 08 October 2010 03:15 AM

    Venerable Sir, You,re a shining example of how the Sanga should act in a crisis and a true model for the silenced Sangha.

    pd Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:40 AM

    THIS IS A GOOD LESSON FOR PRIEST NOT TO GET INVOLVED IN POLITICS OR TAKE SIDES.

    Fonseka SF Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:45 AM

    Van can park is there is space for parking Hamuduruwo shouldne be affraid...this is a big joke...

    Wisdom Friday, 08 October 2010 03:43 AM

    WAS THIS DONE BY THE FONSEKA CLAN TO DISCREDIT THE GOVERNMENT??

    Saliya Wickremasuriy Thursday, 07 October 2010 05:49 PM

    Venerable Sir, please understand this forum consists of Rajapakse goons too.

    Shivanka David Friday, 08 October 2010 07:04 AM

    That's good & this slight incident shows that even the buddhist Monks are not safe in this country.

    sham Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:51 AM

    Don't worry, this kind of things will be there, but all Sri Lankans other than "Mutti karayo" Will be with your oppinion

    May Tripple gem bless you.

    Deshan Lankaputhra Thursday, 07 October 2010 10:53 AM

    Accidents can be happend any time at any where.think positve.

    ACG Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:50 AM

    Ven. Sobhitha Thero, oba wahanseta mulu ratema pranamayath, thunuruwange arakshawath labewa!! Me rate janathawage as (eyes) danwath arewa!!!.

    Johnny Thursday, 07 October 2010 08:54 AM

    Keep always TRUST with your LORD BUDDAH, noboby can kill or harm you.

    Ravana Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:01 AM

    He is not a coward like the election commissioner.

    He is intelligent enough to believe that EVERYONE in the whole world will know who has done it, if anything happens to him.

    Determination Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:07 AM

    What a contrast to Kmburugamuwe thero. May God protect you from all enemies and give you wisdom and courage to protect the truth !

    Padma Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:09 AM

    May the triple gem bless you and protect you.

    unl Friday, 08 October 2010 07:44 AM

    I woner why thsi monk did not speak out during the "sama givesuma " period.

    Anton/Paris Friday, 08 October 2010 07:49 AM

    Wisdom, you have got Wimal's brains. If it was so, by now the driver would have been sentenced for 20 years to threaten all other supporters.

    EW Golding Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:14 AM

    If 150 monks start a direct action SF will be free within days.
    This is the time for leadership and action; not words!

    prabath Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:16 AM

    piyasena Thursday, 07 October 2010 09:17 AM

    Rev. Sir, What will happen to our country? Where is Democracy, Buddhism etc ? We are very proud of you, but really concerned whether they can do any harm to your life.. We know that you are a LION and not scared and worried.. May the Blessings of the Noble Triple Gems be with you and appeal to all Gods to protect you.

    G.Banda Thursday, 07 October 2010 11:44 AM
