Since the beginning of this year, there had been public outcry for the release of Gnanasara Thero.   But our illustrious President Sirisena did not act at that time.  Now, it has become clearer that President Sirisena did not act himself on intelligence  inputs  received regarding April 21 attack.  Therefore, the President need to carpet the public anger against him by creating a new situation.

Many comments made by Gnanasara Thero in regard to Muslim activities have come true.  In his speeches, he has clearly identified the dangers and if the President and the dubious Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe  did act at that time, hundred of lives could have been saved. 

Releasing the Thero at this time, in my opinion, is similar to adding oil to fire.  This decision is most likely to ignite anger against  innocent muslims.   The Thero most likely to become much more aggressive and create unrest in the country, paving way for the postponement of Presidential and General Elections.

Since the time President Sirisena appointed President Mahinda Rajapakse, he had the ulterior motive to persuade SLPP to support him for the second term.  President Sirisena is now fully aware  that his plan will not succeed.   To split the votes of Gotabaya Rajapakse,  he now plan to use Gnanasara Thero and seek his support for his candidacy.  

We have a President and a Prime Minister failed in their duties to  provide security to the Nation.  They have no regard to the hundreds of lives lost and several others injured.

The behaviour of President Sirisena is very similar to a Monkey with a Sword in its hand.  

It can be argued if Sarath Fonseka can be pardoned, why not Gnanasara Thero?  In the jungle of dirty politics of Sri Lanka, we pray peace and harmony to all citiens in these difficult times. The general public must be educated by the Opposition to prevent them causing communal unrest by falling into the trap set up by a Foolish President and Prime Minister.

Dhammapada Verse 63-Ganthibhedakacora Vattu:

Ya Balo mannati balyam

Panditovapi tena so

Balo ca Panditamani

Sa ve Baloti vuccati”

Conceiving so his foolishness
the fool is thereby wise,
while ‘fool’ is called that fool
conceited that he’s wise.

Explanation: If a foolish person were to become aware that he is foolish, by virtue of that awareness, he could be described as a wise person. On the other hand, if a foolish person were to think that he is wise, he could be described as a foolish person.”


  1. Dilrook Says:

    UNP and Sirisena are facing electoral genocide.

    They are desperate to cling to power and disrupt the other camp. However, this does not mean the other camp is any better. The point is this government is extremely unpopular within the Sinhala community. The pundulum mentality of voters ensure the rejected old regime becomes the new favourite.

    Venerable Gnanasara should not engage in any controvercial activities. Instead he should stay under the radar and contest the presidential election to prove his point. If major candidates agree with him on key matters, withdraw and support them. Otherwise contest alone.

  2. Dilrook Says:

    Correction: Pendulum mentality

  3. Christie Says:

    Looks like Indian Puppet Sirisena has conveyed the message from India to Nanasara to shut up.

  4. Randeniyage Says:

    Yes. We need fire NOW. To burn the evil out !

  5. Christie Says:

    There is a big difference between a fool, a wise and a puppet.

    A wise or a fool can be a puppet.

  6. Hiranthe Says:

    I was wondering why our opposition and also the journalists do not touch the issue of dangerous Agreements this opportunistic Yahapalana government entered with US.

    This matter is more serious than any other issues in hand. It should be brought to the knowledge of the Public without further delay.

    Looks like JO is waiting for them to sign and finalise so that they can use it in the Election campaign. But it will be too late then.

  7. Randeniyage Says:

    Will Sirisena come with Sinhala Bauddha policies like removal of 13A, restoration of Wilpattu with Ganasara’s help ? Can people trust this idiot even if he promises those ?

  8. Nimal Says:

    He should not have been released as he broke the law especially being a religious leader.

  9. aloy Says:

    We are not out of the woods yet. As Asath Sali said there are 20 laks of them and if 10% have been indoctrinated that is a hell of a lot. They may not explode bombs, but here are so many way they can harm us; especially with unlimited source od funds. Better late than six years. I am sure he will not allow the politicos to dance to the tune of extremists after getting bribes. To my mind he is one of the two who can speak to the dumb-heads of Sinhalas.
