Rawana Balaya Demands PM To Step Down From Buddha Sasana Ministry

The ‘Ravana Balaya’ organization has asked the Maha Nayakas of Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters of the Siyam Nikaya to pressure the government to remove the Buddha Sasana Ministry from Prime Minister D.M. Jayaratne.

Several Buddhist monks of the ‘Ravana Balaya’, including its general secretary Ven. Iththakande Saddhathissa Thera had requested this from the Maha Nayakas when they paid visits to the latter in Kandy.

The members of ‘Ravana Balaya’ had stressed that they do not have any issue with the Mr. D.M. Jayaratne being the Prime Minister. But as the Buddha Sasana Minister he had done nothing towards the protection of Buddhism, they have stated. Furthermore, the ‘Ravana Balaya’ monks have said that even though repeated requests were made to the Prime Minister to take action against the injustices to Buddhists, nothing has been done until now.

Furthermore, the ‘Ravana Balaya’ members have handed over a letter requesting the Maha Nayakas to intervene to defeat the conspiracies against Buddha Sasana.
