Sinhalese Buddhist extremist group BBS which wants lanka to be a ‘Sinhala Buddhist country only’, which had full support of former President Mahinda and his brother Gotha during the Rajapaksha rule wants the reconciliations among the Sinhala, Tamil and Muslims stopped as they claim that the Sri Lanka belongs to Sinhala Buddhists only..
Rajapaksha brothers who prayed on Communal rule to hold on to power had encouraged racist organisations like BBS, JHU and NFF to create divisions in the community but former President Mahinda Rajapaksha failed to win the Presidential election.
Rajapaksha’s family members who had enjoyed power and are accused of fraudulent financial activities under the support of Mahinda’s leadership wants Mahinda back to power so that they can cover up the fraudulent activities committed by them and their friends during the Mahinda rule.
As the first step Mahinda accused a public demonstration in Jaffna of releasing of a racist by a senior police as regrouping of LTTE.
Last week he accused the current government of ”removing Army camps in the North” but in reality that had not taken place.
Now his associated organisation Racists BBS have accused former President Chandrika of only seeing to the welfare of the Tamils and the Muslims living in North and East. The Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has urged the public to speak out strongly against what it described as the ‘political project at reconciliation in the country.’
Referring to Chandrika Kumaratunga as the sister of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam Leader V. Prabhakaran, General Secretary of the BBS Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera said that her recent public statements saying Sri Lanka belongs to all people living in (Sinhalese , Tamils and Muslims) the country shows her ignorance about who Sri Lanka belonged to came as no surprise, as the answer lay in her genealogy.
The projects pertaining to reconciliation led by her are funded by foreigners, and in particular, the United States of America, he observed.
“During the war Kumaratunga attempted to sabotage the military recruitment process through projects like Sudu Nelum and Thawalama. She has no roots. She and her cult are insulting the war heroes. She does not understand the South.
What Sinhalese Buddhist organizations have Kumaratunga and her officials and advisors under her consulted in attempting to bring about reconciliation? We are nationalists. She is a serpent with a forked tongue. She is an anti-Sinhalese Buddhist who is attempting to make the country akin to the status of a widow. Do not incense the Sinhalese by ignoring the pulse of the majority,” the Thera added.
