Apr 23, Colombo: The extremist Sinhala Buddhist organization, Bodhu Bala Sena (BBS), today surrounded a government ministry to protest the alleged resettlement of Muslims in Wilpattu National Park.

The BBS surrounded the Ministry of Industries, charging that Ven. Watareka Vijitha Thero was hiding in the ministry building.

BBS General Secretary, Ven. Galagodaththe Gnanasara Thero, last week charged into a press conference organized by Ven. Vijitha Thero to highlight resettlements in the Wilpattu area. The BBS has charged that Ven. Vijitha Thero arrived at the Ministry in the early hours this morning and was hiding inside the Ministry building.

A tense situation today prevailed around the complex in Kollupitiya.
