The Chief Minister of Eastern province said that the expressed opinions of Ganasara Thero of the Bodu Bala Sena has challenged the Judiciary.
The extremist opinions of Gnnasara Thero are of a nature that will degenerate the Law and order of the country. They are real threats to the National unity and the Democracy, he said.
He said so while commenting on Gnnasara Thero’s sacrilege of Islamic religion and his abuse of minority people. Police department was established to maintain law and order. But Gnnasara claiming to be the unofficial is making a mockery out of the police department.
In a context where Gnnasara’s name has been mentioned as the background to violence at Aluthgama and other places, it make us think whether Gnnasara is cultivating the ground for a violence on minority people. If Gnnasara will continue to provokes Muslims the repercussions will be far more serious he said.
We are also the citizens of this country. We also have rights as everybody else. If threats are leveled against our freedom and Rights we will not fold hands and wait, he warned.
