Sinhala monk wages anti-TNA propaganda among flood-affected Tamils

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 January 2019, 22:10 GMT]
The Tamil people in Vanni should thank the SL military as their saviours as it protected them from the recent floods and the Tamil people should not demand its withdrawal from the North, said Sinhala extremist politician in saffron robes, Battaramulla Seelarathana thero, who was visiting Ki'linochchi and Mullaiththeevu this weekend in an apparent propaganda move. The TNA politicians, who demand de-militarisation were flying in helicopters while the SL military was helping the flood-affected Tamils on the ground, the extremist monk told the people. Apart from the drive to promote military psyops, his visit was aimed at strengthening Sinhala settlers (not affected by the floods) who have encroached Karai-thu'raip-pattu division in Mullaiththeevu district seizing the strategic link between the North and East to wedge the contiguity of the traditional Tamil homeland permanently.

Battaramulla Seelarathana thero was accompanied by the extremist monk, Sri Thissapura Gunarathna Thero, who is behind the controversial establishment of a Buddhist vihara at a disputed land in Kokku'laay.

The visiting monk was donating supplies to the Sinhala settlers, who have encroached into Mukaththuvaaram, which is the northern tip of the lagoon-mouth of Kokku'laay and is situated at the border of the Northern and Eastern provinces.

Seelarathana thero is the leader of so-called Janasetha Peramuna. He is also running a Sinhala Buddhist housing organisation known as the Sri Parakum Housing Scheme Project.

The monk has been vocal in defending the genocidal state of Sri Lanka such as on the occasion of former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper boycotting the Commonwealth summit in 2013. The monk from Battaramulla at that time said many countries were violating the human rights and his boycott was unreasonable.

The racist monk is also known for criticising the human rights defenders and the Tamil and Muslim politicians, who even collaborate with the Sinhala rulers of the genocidal state, as ‘separatists’.

He was contesting the presidential elections in 2010 and 2015. However, he withdrew his candidacy and endorsed Mahinda Rajapaksa at the polls in 2010 as the hero of the Sinhala nation. Sarath Fonseka had betrayed the ‘country’, he claimed in 2010.

In the meantime, SL military cleaning the wells in Ki'linochchi district was insisting on putting up a thanking poster on the walls of the wells.
