(Lanka-e-News -19.June.2017, 7.00PM) The notorious turncoat, black coat, cut- throat minister of justice Wijedasa Rajapakse alias ‘Dealdasa’ who is viciously fomenting religious hatred among the people and seeking to drive the country into a holocaust while supporting infamous robed drunkard monk and thug Gnanassara to unleash violence against the minorities of the country on the instructions of ex defense secretary murderous Gotabaya Rajapakse, furiously threatened he would remove the professional ‘title’ of lawyer Lakshan Dias .
Wijedasa who was provoked , most arrogantly threatened Lakshan because the latter spoke on behalf of another minority group that was subjected to unwarranted suffering owing to the religious animosity which is being stoked by hate mongers like Wijedasa and Gnanassara to the detriment of the entire country. The threats and intimidation made to Lakshan by Wijedasa alias Dealdasa ( himself a black coated lawyer) who has made inciting religious hatred among the peace loving people his favorite pastime , had obviously earned the displeasure and disappointment of the rudely shocked pro good governance masses.
Lakshan Dias is a lawyer who was in the vanguard of the struggle at that time even risking his own life to throw out corrupt , cruel and despotic Rajapakses . Besides , he led the campaign against the ousting of a former chief justice in a night, by the Rajapakses based on a conspiracy and vindictive grounds. He is a reputed lawyer well known as one who played a key role in that struggle.
It cannot be forgotten it is this same turncoat , cutthroat , black coat Wijedasa alias Dealdasa who some time ago similarly threatened and insulted Lanka e News editor , Professor Sarath Wijesuriya , JVP leader Anura Dissanayake and Sarath Fonseka (who faced a jail sentence ) despite the fact that all of them made the largest contributions to oust the criminal corrupt Rajapakse regime.
We deem it our responsibility as a news website always championing the cause of truth and justice in the best interests of the nation , come what may , to clarify and crystallize the actual circumstances …..
Lakshan Dias who participated in the cordial political program conducted by one of a tv channel recently said, after the advent of the good governance government on 2015 -01-08 , 195 Christian places of worship were attacked. Dias while confirming he is a lawyer revealed NCEASL (National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka) has made a written report on that. By browsing that website all details can be confirmed , and he is the lawyer who is appearing for them , he added.
Since the attacks were launched after 2015 -01-08 , the chiefs of the good governance government should shoulder the responsibility , but before all that it is the minister of justice Wijedasa Rajapakse who is primarily blameworthy for hiding Gnanassara the main and preliminary cause of violence and hooliganism in the country .
At a meeting ,Wijedasa said, he inquired about it from Rev. Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith , and since the latter repudiated the charges and said , there had been no such reports of violence , Lakshan had told lies. Wijedasa therefore behaving like a toughie threatened that if Lakshan does not make a public apology , he would next week take action to chase Lakshan out from his professional career.
Who are Evangelicans ?
It becomes necessary at this juncture to enlighten the people on who are Evangelicans ?
According to Rev. Malcolm Ranjith ,based on a statement made by him to the television channel , Evangelicans are fundamentalists . That is, his sentiments were because they are fundamentalists , attacking them is alright.
In short Evangelicans are a group which opposes in the same way as true Buddhists who are questioning how come Mahanayakes in SL are enjoying pleasures and luxuries while being inside the temples and Maligawas , when the true Prince Siddhartha of the middle path whom the mahanayakes are supposedly following renounced all his wealth and luxuries and went out in search of enlightenment ?
The main argument of this group which originated in as far back as 1840 was ,if Jesus who brought the divine message of god to the people sacrificed his life on the cross for the ‘sins of all the people’, then among all human beings living now there is sin . When that is so, then how can the Roman Catholic priests become equal to God and be revered as such ? Should there be a Holy Pope? These are their questions among others.
They do not slavishly adhere to everything that is told in the Bible. They are averse to the authoritarian powers of the clergy. Therefore among the Evangelicans there are no clergymen . They have only a lay organization structure . This is akin to the administration by the Buddhist council of laymen sans monks at the Kalutara Bodhi.
This Evangelical Christian forum commenced in SL as far back as in 1952 following country’s independence , and along with the Catholic churches losing the state sponsorship .
The three key cornerstones of their concept are human rights , economic and social equality . Because they are opposed to the clergy system , they have no churches , and only have their Evangelical center. There are 200 such centers across the country , and only about 200, 000 followers. They are a minority group of Christians in SL. They must have religious freedom. If anybody is condemning them as fundamentalists and so forth , such an individual is deliberately undermining their religious freedom. Moreover if any religious group has human rights , economic and social equality as the key cornerstones of its religious concept , what is wrong in that ?
If that is the true picture of the Evangelicans and if they are opposed to Roman Catholic authoritarian clergy , seeking an answer from the Roman Catholic Cardinal in regard to the attacks launched against the Evangelical centers are most unfair and wrongful? Opportunistic Wijedasa Rajapakse the notorious turncoat , cutthroat , black coat has done exactly that !
Who should be asked about a crime ? the Cardinal or the IGP ?
A true government of good governance should inquire not from the Cardinal but from the IGP to learn of the truth if a lawyer is accusing that 195 religious places have been attacked. Or else from its security intelligence division . If Wijedasa the minister of Buddha sasana is not aware of the attack launched on the Evangelical center , Devinuwara , Matara when a group of about 2000 broke into the center along with 30 robed monks , to cause havoc and unleash violence on 18 th of May 2017 , surely it is faceless, shameless , characterless Wijedasa the minister who should resign ,and not lawyer Lakshan Dias.
It is the duty of a government of good governance to protect minority religious groups from the attacks and violence unleashed on those citizens of the country , and not to threaten the individuals exposing those crimes.
Whose ‘title’ should be stripped ? Is it black coat Lakshan’s or turncoat parana coat Wijedasa’s ?
Even if we assume Lakshan told a lie, the minister of justice has no right to disbar a lawyer . That is possible only by the supreme court (SC). It is a pity the minister of justice of SL is ignorant of that simple fact.
When the minister of justice Wijedasa arrogantly threatens that he would strip Lakshan of his lawyer title , is n’t it he is demonstrating he has arrogated to himself powers of the SC ? Isn’t that clearly bringing pressure to bear on the SC by the justice minister?
This same minister who is riding the high horse only to have a heavy fall , similarly threatened the Lanka e news editor too earlier on. He bragged in parliament , on a red alert warrant the editor shall be arrested and fetched to SL . A few days later the notorious Gampaha magistrate issued an illegal Interpol warrant against the editor.
Though the CID later informed court that the warrant was illegal and cannot be executed , it was deducible that rash court decision was based on the threat made by the minister because the latter made that earlier.
In any case no legal action could be taken against Wijedasa because he made the announcement in parliament taking refuge under parliamentary privilege. But the threats and intimidation directed against Lakshan were made on ordinary platform by Wijedasa. Therefore one need not have a doctorate in law to say , that Wijedasa as minister of justice has challenged the powers of the SC unlawfully , and that is something which can be proved before the law.
Wijedasa who is riding the high horse and threatening all and sundry like a thug unlawfully despite being the justice minister who should uphold the law , also proved beyond doubt he is an accomplished liar of the worst grade. Though Wijedasa said he had no truck with Avant Garde owner, the subsequent photos published two weeks later of himself with Avant Garde owner when they toured America on a holiday , proved beyond doubt that Wijedasa the turncoat- cutthroat had blatantly and brazenly lied in Parliament.
In the circumstances , before the title ‘lawyer’ of Lakshan is stripped unlawfully , not only the title of ‘lawyer’ but even the title ’president’s counsel’ of Wijedasa the double tongued double dealing culprit that are going to be divested under the law. This is so certain it seems it is inevitable.
Await the second episode of Wijedasa alias Dealdasa which reveals the desperate efforts he made to take a red alert warrant against Lanka e news editor, and how he stumbled and tumbled into a precipice most humiliatingly.
