Galagoda Atthe Gnanasara in an inciteful and fear mongering speech earlier today in Aluthgama prior to the riots said that “if one marakkalaya ( Muslim) lays a hand on a Sinhalese that will be the end of all of them” to a rousing and cheering crowd.
The crowd were visibly moved and kept cheering each inciteful statement made by Gnansara prior to launching their attack on the Muslims.
“The police have turned their bayonets against us that is wrong. The Police should know what is happening in this country. We are asking the Defence establishment if the Sinhalse and the Bikkhus have ever raised a hand to one business establishment?. But this is enough. We haven’t raised our hands ( against them), not because we can’t… its not because we can’t”( crowd cheers)
He also said that the BBS was “racist”, while telling the Police officers present that they are a part of the “Sinhala Police and the Sinhala Army”.
He also said that the name of “Dharga town” should also be changed. ”This is what these temporary…. this is the gratefulness that the have shown to us like Madumadhawa said”.
