Should the Dharmadweepa be subjugated to a military administration? Minister Mangala Samaraweera

Minister of Finance and Mass Media Mangala Samaraweera has queried whether the Dharmadweepa should be subjugated to a military administration. The Minister made this reference in response to a statement made by the Anunayake of the Asgiriya Chapter the Ven. Vendaruwe Upali Thera showering the blessings of the Maha Sangha in view of the 69th Birthday of former Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.
Issuing a statement Minister of Mass Media and Finance Mangala Samaraweera pointed out that the statement made by a Nayake Thera recognized by the country was a grave malicious one. He said that he who accepts the Buddhist vision as a real Buddhist is shameful.
Minister Mangala Samaraweera mentioned that he strongly believes that nobody makes such a shameful statement about the German Nazi ruler Adolf Hitler ifhe knows a bit of information about his military rule.
The announcement states that the Dhamma preached by the Buddha to his disciples was not to advise or favour anywhere in the discourse.
Therefore, the Minister of Finance and Mass Media pointed out that he is firmly convinced that no Buddhist monk is a true Bhikkhsu who admits of such a horrible and horrendous statement, except for a monk of the Devadatta generation.
