* Leader of Sri Lanka's extremist Buddhist group threatens to end political life of ministers accusing him
Tue, Jul 1, 2014, 09:42 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 01, Colombo: The leader of Sri Lanka's Buddhist extremist organization Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero today challenged the police to arrest him if he was wrong instead of arresting other innocent Sinhala Buddhists to appease the Muslims and the international community.

Addressing a media briefing called today in Colombo to respond to the allegations against him and his organization by some government ministers, the hardline monk warned both the government and the opposition not to set their hands on BBS and emphasized that they would perish if they proceeded.

He said he was silent since he wanted to calm the situation down but in the context they are being demeaned. The monk warned that they would soon be compelled to take action to see what would happen.

Gnanasara Thero threatened to finish the political life of the Ministers who march against Buddhist organizations.
