The BBS, as in the past, has always utilised the Sinhala language in its publications. In doing so, it has brought Sinhala language scholarship to the fore. It has made the study of scripture and religious traditions accessible to the Sinhalese. By doing so, they have laid the foundations for self-perfection of the individual, which I think, Mr. Chandraprema claims, is the chief goal of this organisation. This is why the BBS again believes that the Sinhalese must remain with their country.
Sinhala at grassroots level had the potential of changing the situation in the Sri Lanka politically. But instead of aiding Sri Lanka's democratic movement the BBS meted out injuries to all who had the possibility of opposing the BBS to this senseless movement. It was the Sinhala Buddhist masses which could have saved this country from going the way of Iran or any other Islamic country. There is no other country in the South East Asia which has witnessed the spread of Islam throughout its entire population. Politicians are blatantly in the pockets of the BBS and thats why the politicians are hell bent on holding on to power at all cost. 7211a4ac4a
