The Colombo High Court rejected bail sought by the General Secretary of Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) the Venerable Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero.

Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero was recently sentenced to four years rigorous imprisonment for making defamatory comments against Islam in 2016.

The Colombo High Court found the monk guilty and sentenced him to jail and also imposed a Rs. 100,000 fine.

The controversial monk was accused of making defamatory comments against Islam during a media briefing in the year 2016.

The judge found the monk guilty of the two indictments filed by the Attorney General under the Penal Code.

Galagodaaththe Gnanasara Thero was sentenced to two years of rigorous imprisonment for each indictment and was imposed two fines of Rs. 50,000 each.

The defense attorney argued that Gnanasara Thero’s remarks were based on the situation that prevailed in the country at the time.

However, the court ruled that the monk made the statement deliberately

The court noted that the monk failed to fulfil his responsibility as a religious leader who is entrusted with maintaining the inter-faith harmony. (Colombo Gazette)
