Buddhist monk in Batticaloa said encroaching into Muslim school land

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 15 December 2010, 20:14 GMT]
The Buddhist of the Vaazhaichcheanai Buddha Jayanthi Vihara last week demolished 80 meter long boundary wall that divided the Vihara's land from the adjacent Pi'rai-thu'rai-chenai Ahar Viththiyaalayam and annexed the playground of the Muslim school with Buddhist Vihara's land, blamed M.S.M.Subairdeen, the principal of the school in a writ application filed in Vaazhaichcheani Court last Wednesday. Meanwhile, Eastern Provincial Council member Java Hirshali accused the police for assisting the Vihara in erecting a fence annexing the school property with Vihara.

Vaazhaichcheanai District Judge Mr. Mohamed Riyam would deliver his order this week on the writ application filed by the principal, who has sought interim injunction against the Viharathipathi of the Budda Jayanthi Vihare for annexing the school with the Buddhist temple.

The Viharathipathi recently held a fast unto death campaign demanding the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa to take steps to restore six Vihares which the monk claimed were functioning in the Batticaloa district before the war.

The secretary of the School Development Society and Principal lodged complaints with the Vaazhaichcheanai Police in this regard.

The construction of Buddhist Vihares in sites Vaazhaichchenai, Era’voor, Jayanthipuram and Thimilaitheivu has begun after the fast-unto-death campaign by the Viharathipathi.

The Ahar Viththiyaalayam is located 30 km north of Batticaloa city.
