Admitting that his organisation set certain wrong examples in the past, but having understood their mistake the BBS is planning a new journey in collaboration with all races and religions, said the General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Ven. Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thera.
Participating in an interview with the Sri Lanka Guardian Editor Nilantha Ilangamuwa, Gnanasara Thera spoke about the organisations future plans and the country’s current political situation.
Implement the law:
Reminiscing his past experiences he said at one point there was a conspiracy brewing to snatch the Dalada relics and his responsibility was to protect the relics and he had fled to the South with the sacred relics.
He said his organisation had at no point approved of violent acts and asked the relevant authorities to appoint an independent commission to investigate these incidents and implement the law accordingly and accurately.
“At the time it was only Ranil Wickremesinghe who understood our problems,” he had said during the interview.(Sri Lanka Guardian)
