Controversial Sri Lankan Buddhist organization to set up branch in the North

Controversial Sri Lankan Buddhist organization, the Bodhu Bala Sena plans to set up a branch in the Northern Province.The organization has said that it plans to set up an office in Jaffna and will hold an initial discussion on the matter this week.Executive Committee member of Bodhu Bala Sena, Dilantha Withanage told the media that the move is aimed at building trust between the Sinhala and Tamil communities in the country.Representatives from Jaffna are also expected to participate at the meeting to discuss the modalities of setting up a branch in the North.Bodu Bala Sena’s hardline attitude towards Muslims has drawn concern from moderate Sri Lankans who fear that a Taliban like group is in the formation if the government and the society fail to take action against the group.However, the militant organization has not taken any action against the Tamil community.
