Dear Sir.

Re: Continued Hate Speech and Threat of Violence by the Bodu Bala Sena

Please see enclosed herewith a DVD containing a speech made by Ven. Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thero in Mahiyangana on the 21st of June 2016. He is threatening a repeat of the Aluthgama violence against the Muslim community. He is also threatening the police; the contents are self explanatory in the enclosed video.

As you are aware, two years ago on the 15th of June 2014, Ven. Gnanasara Threo incited the people of Kalutara district to cause violence, death and destruction to the Muslims of Aluthgama and Beruwela. The rioting caused the death of two persons, destroyed house and property and inflicted damages to businesses worth billions of rupees. The repeated calls by the Muslim community for a commission of inquiry and punish the perpetrators have fallen on deaf ears. Two years on, Ven. Gnanasara Thero is proudly claiming that he will repeat Aluthgama in Mahiyangana.

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka calls upon you sir, to immediately initiate an inquiry against the said threat and take necessary police action against this provocation to violence. We also once again call upon you, sir to conduct an inquiry against the Aluthgama riots against the Muslims and take necessary police action against the perpetrators. Ven. Gnanasara is proudly claiming responsibility for the violence in Aluthgama. There is also ample video evidence to his provocation on the 15th of June 2014.

I thank you for your immediate attention and necessary action.
Yours sincerely

N M Ameen
