According to informed sources close to the BBS, the organization will be revamping and expanding its organizational structure by establishing units at grass root level to promote social development.
Youths are to be selected and trained and then deployed as village based units to engage in social development activities on the lines of India’s Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh(TSS)which engages in lots of rural development work.
The BBS leadership training academy that was ceremonially opened at Galle last month by Defence and Urban Development Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa will conduct training courses for the new recruits it is learnt.
The BBS is also seriously contemplating the establishment of a Muslim unit within its organizational structure as part of its re-structuring.
According to informed sources the Bodhu Bala Sena is considering the idea of setting up a Muslim unit within its ranks for specific reasons.
Basically the BBS hopes to demonstrate to the world that it is not anti- Muslim as depicted by showcasing the Muslim unit.
It is pointed out in this regard that the Ultra Hindu right wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in India has a Muslim membership within its folds to deflect criticism that it is a communal organization.
Even the notoriously anti – Muslim Narendra Modi the BJP chief minister of Gujerat state in India has Muslims with him though he has been accused of anti -muslim activity.
Though detractors have described the Muslims within the BJP as “token”Muslims the party continues to flaunt them as proof of its non –communal credentials.
Furthermore it has been statistically proved that a segment of the Muslim population in North India particularly in Gujerat does vote for the BJP at elections.
