    [what if other religious dignitaries start contesting elections]

    We Sri Lankans are so ready to follow religious leaders .. there is a danger `lay-men` may get pushed-out from Parliament .. to be replaced by priests from all three (03) religions. Then they will do their `preaching` from Parliament .. (Shape of things to come ..)

    Finally Ranil soaked in Benz scandal.

    Monk can go to courts now.

    Ranil may have to eat `humble pie` .. It may well happen, on instructions from the Police, Ranil (or his driver) may have to take the vehicle back to Ven Ellawala .. and apologise.

    So! what is the issue?

  • 5 Aug 2007 08:35:48 GMT

    Issue ? As far as the law is concerned, Ven Ellawala is the legal owner of the vehicle. If Ranil is keeping the vehicle at his premises (against the owner`s wishes), owner can make a complaint to the Police .. and the Police will instruct Ranil to hand-back the vehicle .. or face prosecution.

    [ the Mercedes Benz car with registration number KH 1715, carbonite silver colour, with a diesel engine was registered under the name of Ven Ellawala Medhananda Thera who still owns the vehicle according to the official records of the Department of Registrar of Motor Vehicles and Commissioner of Motor Traffic,`]

    This Sinhala Buddhist monk is a disgrace to Buddhism and human race, that is, if they are humans.

    Yaluwa Kotia ad PunchMahina may argue he is an imposter in monk`s robes.

    JHU monks are cheats behind the pure robes. They preach politics more than dhamma at the temples.

    I saw in the `Neth TV` one monk is praiseful of Mahinda for continuing the war. His preaching is contradicting the very teaching of Lord Buddha. He also said to the Upasaka Meniyan and Upasaka Mahathayan and innocent children attended at the temple `Mahinda is the only leader who would go down in history as the King Dutigemunu`.

    What he has so far achieved? Capture of Thoppigala.. thats not enough to go down the good books of history. He may go down in the bad books of history for betraying the country for the crown.(Presidency).

    The country will be better off, if these monks preaches only dhamma at temples than resorting to politics.

    He is 1000 times better than bishops of Mannar and Jaffna! He has no blood soaked hands!

    [They can prove it although vehicle is under .. the monk`s name]

    That is for Upali Liyanage, or the other person mentioned in connection with this episode .. to make his claim to the vehicle. Not Ranil`s

    Ranil knows the law .. although he seems to have exceeded his `limits` .. He is not going to wait for that humiliating call to come from the Police. He is going to ask his friend .. with whose co-operation he was trying to `fix` the priest, to come and take away the vehicle. (May have done that already).
