The Basnayake Nilames' Federation says that due to fake Basnayake Nilames the position has by now come to be regarded lightly.

Participating a seminar held in Kandy yesterday, Federation Chairman Gemunu Walisundara said that an incident of a person calling himself a Basnayake Nilame had murdered two Buddhist monks at the Kotte Rajamaha Viharaya was reported recently.

The Federation said that according to the Devalagama Act, there were 32 Basnayaka Nilames in Sri Lanka and that this incident had brought injustice and insult upon them.

The Chairman further said that it was hoped that in the future action would be taken to legally strengthen the Basnayake Nilame position.
