Bodubalasena and JHU are destroying the country – Baddegama Samitha Thero

The JHU (Jathika Hela Urumaya) and some others are trying to destroy the country by increasing racism and religious extremism through organisations such as Bodubalasena, says Southern provincial council member Ven: Baddegama Samitha Thero. 

 

Ven: Baddegama Samitha Thero made this statement during the monthly meeting of Southern provincial council.

 

We must respect all religions. I respect Buddhism. And also I’m appearing on behalf of other religions. Jathika Hela Urumaya (National Heritage Party) is trying to destroy the country through organising racist programs against Muslims.

 

We had a bloody war of 30 years. Now the fight is over but war is not yet over. The Northern youth have written their walls that they want to make Prabakaran’s statue from Sinhalese blood.

 

Now a day also our country has division between upcountry and down. The Dalada perahara does not allow dance and instruments of down part of the country.

 

So we need to make an environment for Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims to live in peace and harmony. Tamils didn’t ask for sun and moon. They only asked for division of power. Tamils also must have the power to take decisions just like we do. To obey whatever the majority decides, which is the JHU’s position, is wrong.

 

We must unite without dividing race, religion and caste. All communities should have equality and justice.
