July 15, Colombo: Sri Lanka's Buddhist extremist Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) today urged the President Mahinda Rajapaksa to sack Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) leader and Justice Minister Rauf Hakeem from the cabinet.
The secretary of the BBS Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero said today at a press briefing held in Colombo that Hakeem was a mean politician who was always after personal benefits.
Gnanasara Thero claimed that Minister Rauf Hakeem and the SLMC had taken actions for posts, wealth and he had made racist statements that aroused communal hatred.
Gnanasara Thero who was accused of inciting racial hatred in Beruwala and Aluthgama warned Hakeem not to test his patience.
He said that the BBS had not asked for benefits but was dedicated for the nation unlike the Ministers who were after personal benefits.
Political observers in Sri Lanka question why the militant monk is still not arrested for his racist remarks and threats inciting hatred among ethnic communities.
