Bodu Bala Sena
“The anthem of the Bodu Bala Sena carries an incendiary message that seeks to depict sections of this country’s people as outsiders and destroyers. Its purpose is to incite distrust and hostility between ethnic and religious groups, promoting national disharmony in the country,” the statement said.
Over 60 people, including university lecturers, teachers and journalists had signed the petition.one of the signatories confirmed that a copy had been sent to the telecommunication provider as well. In response Executive Committee member of the Bodu Bala Sena, Dilantha Withanage said that while the organization supported academics the subscribers of a telephone company had every right to ask for a ring tone unless there were ethical issues involved or the artist was banned.
Meanwhile, a separate Facebook group planned a candlelight vigil ‘to safeguard the Dhamma’ around the Bodu Bala Sena headquarters at Sambuddatva Jayanthi Mawatha on Friday (12). Attendants of the vigil planned to chant softly on ‘right thinking’ outside the building.
