Case 18-2016: State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (Ma Ha Na)
Official Statement on Attacks against Refugees
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, on October 4, 2017, decides to reaffirm again that the movements that are carrying out violent activities in the name of Buddhism, which is a Peace Spirituality, are false and illegal. In this regard, it is denounced the fact that the false Bhikkhus of the Sinhale Jathika Balamuluwa movement, who in September 2017 in Colombo (Sri Lanka) violently broke into the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office to attack women and children who are refugees of the Rohingya People that are fleeing genocide, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity by the Myanmar government and its de facto President Aung San Suu Kyi. This group of fraudulent and false Buddhist Bhikkhus attacked defenseless refugees, accusing them of terrorists, and they even would have injured two police officers according to news sources.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights confirms that the Rohingya People are fleeing from the worst crimes against peace that exist, so that according to International Law the Sri Lankan government has a legal duty to accept them as refugees.
The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights confirms that some of Sri Lankan organizations have the same genocidal ideology as the False Buddhism of Myanmar’s State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee, which is why it is necessary to initiate an investigation and sentencing of these groups which violate the peaceful cultural heritage of Buddhism through discriminatory activities and human rights violations.
To conclude, the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights congratulates Rajitha Senaratne of the Sri Lankan government, who affirmed that this violence is not what Siddhartha Gautama Buddha and his Path of Compassion taught. Therefore, the attackers are false monks. The Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights congratulates Sri Lankan Minister Mangala Samaraweera for requesting these false Bhikkhus to be brought to justice, reason by which the Buddhist Tribunal puts itself at the service of the Sri Lankan government in order to help prosecuting and sentencing these false Bhikkhus, who are violating Buddhist Law and International Law.
