The Chief Prelate of the Asgiri Chapter of the Siam Sect, Most Venerable Galagama Sri Aththadassi Thero, says that the Maha Sangha acted in a sacrificial manner during times perilous to the country and the people.
The senior Buddhist leader made these comments during a meeting with the State Minister of National Integration and Reconciliation, A. H. M. Fowzie, in Kandy this morning (27).
The Most Venerable Mahanayake Thero further said that the General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena organization, Ven. Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero, has been remanded and that the latter has also acted in a sacrificial manner with regard to the country and the people.
Therefore everything needs to be done properly, he said. Most Ven. Aththadassi Thero stated that unity between communities should develop.
He stated that something should be talked about with pure intent and that one must act with human compassion.
