Mar 19, Colombo: A leading monk of a Marxist movement in Sri Lanka has called the extremist Buddhist group an unholy and fake organization.
Co-Convener of the Anti-Imperialist People's Movement, Ven. Dambara Amila Thero has warned that the consequences of the actions of the extremist Buddhist group Bodhu Bala Sena would be felt by the entire country.
Dambara Amila Thero at the Forum for National Unity has said that the Bodhu Bala Sena was attempting to make halal into a haram issue.
He has likened the Bodhu Bala Sena's actions in the halal controversy to holding a snake by its tail leaving room for it to sting its captor.
However, the Bodhu Bala Sena announced that they have concluded the fight against the Halal victoriously and they will not talk about Halal issue any more. Instead they would now take up the issue of removing a mosque from Kuragala Buddhist monastery complex in the central hills, the national organizer of Bodu Bala Sena Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera said.
