* Militant Buddhist monk organization in Sri Lanka invades Ministry of Buddhist Affairs again
Wed, Jul 30, 2014, 09:51 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

July 30, Colombo: Monks of Ravana Balaya, an extremist Buddhist group in Sri Lanka, again invaded the Ministry of Buddhist Affairs today demanding a discussion with the Minister who is also the Prime Minister.

The militant Buddhist monks led by Ravana Balaya leader Ittekande Saddhathissa Thero entered the Ministry headquarters and had a discussion with the Secretary to the Ministry.

The extremist monks inquired about the actions the Ministry had taken regarding the activities of the other extremist religious organizations.

They questioned the Ministry why it fails to respond to a letter sent by them.

The organization finally withdrew from the Ministry with a promise from the secretary to coordinate a meeting with the Prime Minister.

They protested against security staff for not allowing the media to enter the Ministry and vowed to visit the Prime Minister's office, not the Ministry next time.
