Incumbant of Kotte Nagaviharaya Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero has requested the President to release Gen. Sarath Fonseka and in place of him imprison hundred Bhikkus including him. Ven. Sobitha Thero said this at a press conference held by the `National Bhikku Front` in Colombo today.
Speaking further Ven. Sobitha said, Sarath Fonseka is a fearless commander, a hero. A person who has not committed any wrong would never ask for pardon. We know that even if he dies in the prison having his meals from a tin plate he would never ask for pardon. Even we would not ask for pardon in such circumstances.
Hence, we, as the Maha Sangha, make an affectionate request from the President. Release the Great War hero who brought a great victory to the Motherland. Instead, sentence hundred Bhikkus including me to rigorous imprisonment for life. We are ready for such a sentence.
Here are the rest of the talk he had with London Sri Lanka Radio.
Very interesting and lots of History for the LNP Youth Pundits.
