Many Sri Lankans welcomed development on the social media as one giving hope amidst concern over impunity enjoyed by the saffron robe in Sinhala-Buddhist majority country.

Monk Gnanasara faces many other cases for allegedly inciting hate crimes targeting the Muslims, but this is the first time he has been put in prison.

Incident took place in January 2016, when a Magistrate court was hearing the case of her husband Prageeth Eknaligoda, a journalist and cartoonist, who has been missing for more than eight years.

Monk who leads hard-line organisation Bodu Bala Sena (Buddhist Power Force) stormed the courtroom and threatened Ms. Eknaligoda, referring to her missing husband as an “LTTE spy”.

Known for his critical views of Rajapaksa regime, Mr. Eknaligoda was abducted early 2010. While abduction is widely attributed to Military, Authorities have denied the allegation.

Magistrate Court in Homagama, about an hour away from Colombo, fined Galagodaatte Gnanasara LKR 1,500 (₹635) and ordered him to pay LKR 50,000 (about ₹21,200) to Ms. Eknaligoda as compensation.
