PCoI report portrays wrong picture to Int’l community: Ven. Narampanawe Ananda

When looking at the final report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) into the Easter Sunday attacks, the international community can decide that this attack was carried out by the Sinhala Buddhists, Deputy Secretary of the Asgiriya Chapter Ven. Narampanawe Ananda Thera said.

The prelate expressed his views after visiting the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) General Secretary Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thera and a group of monks representing national organizations at the Asgiriya temple yesterday.

Ven. Ananda Thera said the personal views of the Asgiri and Malwatu chapters have already been presented to the President regarding the report.

The report had depicted a totally wrong image about the attack.

The Thera also mentioned that the Former President, former IGP and the BBS organisation had been mentioned responsible for the attack, according to the report, and gives the impression that this attack was launched by the Sinhala Buddhist people.

Hence, Ven. Gnanasara appealed to Asgiriya Chapter's Ven. Narampanawe Ananda Thera to take action to issue a joint statement from the Asgiri and Malwatte chapters to ease the tension that has arisen in the minds of the Sinhala Buddhist people. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    The whole world knows that these attacks were pre-planned by Sinhala extremists and were carried out by some of their Muslim henchmen just to gain their political interests. This is a pretty difficult equation to solve, because the people who planned the bloodshed are led by the so called influential leaders of the certain politicos.

    The BBS offers nice brainwashing. Why is this gang of criminals and racists still not banned?

    Now this fellow is trying best to white wash BBS. This is why Sinhalese Buddhism is an insult to great teachings of Lord Buddha.

    Ven. Narampavana Ananda Thero is 100% correct. PCol report is an eye wash, nothing in it, this was prepared to suit

    We agree with you Ven. Thero. Plan is to protect Mithiripala Sirisena, that's all.

    Sinhala Budhists never harm anyone. Thai is True.

    Buddhist monks cannot be above the law. One Law one Country must apply to those monks as well.

    First, investigate the people who made this report. You will find all these local spies who have been hiding and operating freely hiding behind every governments since 1950s.
