HENB-HJS | Mumbai | July 7, 2015:: Extremist Buddhists from Kokkulaya area of Sri Lanka recently demolished an ancient Sri Vinayaka Temple for constructing ‘Buddha-vihar’. Such attacks on Hindu temples in Sri Lanka by fanatic Buddhists should be immediately stopped and Hindus’ human rights should be protected. The above demand has been made by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) with Sri Lankan Government through representations submitted to the Sri Lankan High Commission at Mumbai and Delhi on 3rd July 2015. It has been also warned to take note of the representations and convey action taken for safeguarding Hindus’ temples; else agitation would be staged.
Hindu Existence Forum and Hindu Janajagruti Samiti have been trying to ventilate the oppression on Hindu Tamils in Sri Lanka for years and Hindu Existence website is tirelessly propagating the cause of Hindu Tamils in Sri Lanka and to punish the perpetrators behind the Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka. , , , , , , , , , , , , ,…
It has been stated in the representation sent by Shri. Shivaji Vatkar, the Coordinator of HJS that ‘We are shocked to hear about the attack on Sri Vinayaka Temple in Kokkulaya area by extremist Buddhists. It has been gathered from the news published by various channels and websites that Bhikkhu Gunaratna Thero, known to be an extremist has hatched a plot to demolish the temple and construct ‘Buddha-vihar’ in its place. Sri Lankan army is also a party to this plot. Bhikkhu Thero is involved in creating problems for Tamil Hindus and in their conversion. The only road joining North and East Sri Lanka passes through Kokkulaya area and is under control of Sri Lankan army. Hindus have a doubt that the above road has been taken over by Buddhists so that Hindus from these parts would not be able to be in contact with each other. The issue of demolished temple is in fact, pending in Court. The local administration has imposed ban to construct any kind of structure at the disputed place and issued notice to local Bhikkhus; still Bikkhu Gunaratna Thero, totally disregarding laws, has started construction of ‘Buddha-vihar’ with the help of Sri Lankan army and the Buddhists have taken over even a well in the area. A memorial has been erected for 2 soldiers who died in the war with Tamil tigers and Bhikkhu Thero has made it compulsory for Hindus to first bow before the memorial before drawing water from the well. Hindus fear that they might be disallowed to take water from that well, in future. Temples, inspire to undertake spiritual practice and have peace, are places of worship of Hindus. Positive and ‘sattvika’ vibrations are emitted through temples which purify the whole atmosphere. We have received complaints from Hindus all over the world about the attacks on Hindu temples in Sri Lanka; with demand that Sri Lankan Government should protect Hindus and their seats of worship. Indian Prime Minister recently paid a visit to Sri Lanka. In this background, Sri Lankan Government should protect local Hindus for improving relations between the two countries.
Copies of the representation have been forwarded to Minister for Foreign Affairs, Sushama Swaraj, High Commissioner (Human Rights) of United Nations at Geneva and European Secretariat in Ukraine. HJS has demanded with UNO’s Human Rights Commission that an inquiry committee should be set up for taking necessary action against fanatic Buddhists from Sri Lanka who are oppressing Hindus; committing breach of their human rights.
