BBS raps Mervyn

court-jester-4Minister Mervyn Silva should correct himself first before making allegations against others, the General Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera said today.

“We would like to invite Minister Silva to set himself right and then to correct his son instead of accusing others,” the Thera told a news conference as a response to a question posed by media.

Earlier, during a meeting with the Mahanayakes Minister Silva had criticised the language used by BBS monks in the recent past. The Thera said that they knew how to approach and use language suitable for different factions.

“We know which language to use when talking to humans, gods and criminals,” he said. “There have been court jesters like Andere by the side of Kings in history. They keep entertaining people. The history is repeating itself,” the Thera said.
