Fri, Mar 14, 2014, 11:58 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 14, Colombo: The extremist Buddhist movement in Sri Lanka, the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) has criticized former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga for her role in promoting religious co-existence in the country.

Executive Committee Member and Programme Coordinator of BBS, Dilantha Withanage has said that the former President is trying to destroy Buddhism by isolating the Sinhala Buddhists internationally.

Withanage explained that it is being done to obtain overseas funds to please certain parties.

He has charged that the report prepared by Kumaratunga's South Asian Policy and Research Institute (SAPRI) has consequences and repercussions for the country.

The BBS has also challenged the former President to prove who funded the report by the non-governmental organization she chairs, how much was granted and how the money was utilized, in addition to the research methodology that was used.
