Buddhist Prelates appeal for release of Gen Fonseka

Bookmark Buddhist Prelates appeal for release of Gen Fonseka

The Mahanayakas of the three Chapters have asked the President to free Gen. Sarath Fonseka of all accusations against him, release him and provide necessary security using his executive powers just as the President had used it to release Karuna Amman and Pilleyan who hasd massacred Bhikkus at Aranthalawa and carried out a bomb attack on the Temple of the Tooth.

This request has been made to President Mahinda Rajapkse in a letter written with the signatures of Mahanayake of Malwatta Chapter Most Ven Thibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera, Mahanayake of Asgiriya Chapter Most Ven. Udugama Sri Buddharakkhita Thera, Mahanayake of Amarapura Chapter Most Ven. Dawuldeniye Gnanissara Thera and Mahanayake of Ramagnna Chapter Most Ven. Weveldeniye Medhalankara Thera.

In their letter the Mahanayakas further state even in the past the Maha Sangha came forward for the settlement of any crises, dissention and conflict between the ruler and the ruled. This has been confirmed in the chronicles too the prelates point out. It is this tradition that has prompted them to address the President in order to calm down the crisis that has emerged in the country they state in their letter to the President

They have asked the President to follow Lord Buddhas teaching that ‘hatred would not end hatred’ and give up the differences and the conflict with the former Commander of SL Army Gen. Fonseka who carried out the task of eradicating terrorism from the Motherland.

The Prelates in their letter reminds the President, that he, using his executive powers, has taken to the government’s fold and presented ministerial posts and other privileges to Karuna Amman (Karuna) and Pilleyan, considered as fierce terrorists who had assassinated Bhikkus, attacked the Temple of the Tooth, Sri Maha Bodhiya, murdered a large number of members of security forces and civilians and was engaged in a process of dividing the country.

Hence, the President should use his executive powers to release all those who have been arrested, including Gen. Fonseka, who have risked their lives to protect sovereignty, territorial integrity of the Motherland and security of the masses state the Mahanayakas in their letter.

    It sounds like mahanayaka thero is also working with hate as MR not listening to him. Is that the Buddhas teaching. Can he ask any one not to come to temple as mahanayaka thero don’t like him. is that the Buddhism.

    1. Chinthaka
      Just let the Mahanayke do what he has to do and what he thinks is right. From what I heard him say, he is a man of integrity.

      Do you have proof that SF Killed Lasantha? Why dont you produce it. Dont just go accusing people without proof.

      1. Read the hansard and get it from UNP MPS. they have all the details as revealed in parliament.Did they lie? As MR is their enemy it could have easily point to MR. But knowing the danger they expressed it by knowing that next target can be them.
        IF SF clean he himself should proof himself that he is clean.but so far all attempts are to cover up. All legal attempts not to prove he is clean. I was also thinking GOTA was behind MIG deal but he himself got cleaned from the case. It is the way any responsible person to do. No doubt SF is a HERO.But he should be brave enough to face to law.If he get everything cleared he will be the most popular icon.But the way he behave show us something wrong.

    2. Cninthaka stop rattling off, you accused SF of killing Lasantha? do you have proof? just answer the quesion, do you have proof?

      1. read it again 😀 you know it right. do you have proof that he didn’t do it? else who did that? i am not a eye witness but cause of events have given some clues. keep your eyes open you will find it.any how truth will come out soon.

    3. Have you heard of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law?

      Yes you keep your eyes and your ears open, try and give the others a chance to voice their opinion as well.

  2. I am very happy for jailing Sarath Fonseka..coz he is the one who killed our leader prabhakaran…and I am very happy to see he got punished by a sinhalese…and happy to see Karuna Amman to get previleges..see how fools are the sinhalese..he he he

    1. Siva
      Have you heard “that what goes around comes around” That is is what happened to Prabhakaran.

      I am not Sinhalse and I am not taking sides, but he killed as many people as the Srilankan forces. The people who suffered the most under him were the poor tamil people who could not get out of Jaffna. Have you ever thought of the mothers and fathers whose children were taken as child soldiers? I guess not, you must live in a nice house in a very safe place so what the hell do you care?

      My only prayers and wishes for Sri Lanka are that everybody gets together and starts the healing process. We have had enough of war, violation of democratic rights and useless bickering like you trying to instigate more trouble than we already need.

  3. Hello everyone, Happy April Fool’s Day!!

    Moishe Cohen goes to see his rabbi.
    “I need your advice. My wife just gave birth to a girl.”
    “Mazel tov.”
    “Thank you. Can we name the baby after a relative?”
    “According to Jewish custom, you can name a baby after a departed father, mother, brother”
    “But they are all still alive,” says Moishe.
    “Oh, Im terribly sorry to hear that,” said the rabbi.

    Happy April Fool’s Day!
