Two Monks violence

Following several complaints filed with Facebook over a video posted on the Facebook page of the Sinhale Jathika Balamuluwa, the social media website has decided to remove it.

The video was a live recording of a mob, led by monks, storming a safe house in Mount Lavinia recently where refugees from Myanmar were being kept.

The monks threatened the refugees and hurled abuse at them, including some women carrying children.

Following complaints to Facebook requesting that the video be removed, Facebook says it has removed the video.

“Since it violated our Community Standards, we removed it….We let Sinhale Jathika Balamuluwa – Officlal know that their video has been removed,” Facebook said.

Last week the venerable Akmeemana Dayarathana Thera was arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) over the incident involving Rohingya refugees.
