A group of robed persons in a conspiracy to destroy Buddhism: PM-Video
Prime Minister and Buddha Saasana and Religious Affairs Minister D. M. Jayartna says that a group of saffron robe wearers were trying to destroy the Buddha Saasana posing off as the Sangha brotherhood.
The Prime Minister points out that this can be a result of an international or internal pressure.
Prime Minister D. M Jayaratna had convened a media briefing yesterday for replying to charges directed at the Buddha Saasana Ministry from various groups.
Meanwhile the Raavanaa Balaya organisation had recently charged that the Buddha Saasana Ministry had done no service country and that therefore Prime Minister D. M. Jayaratna should step down from the Ministry.
