Aluthgama Pogrom In June 2014 And Ifthar Diplomacy In June 2018

By Mass L. Usuf

Mass Usuf

Man’s pain arises from his relations with man. The greatest of the pains for man is the one caused through injustice and oppression. This is a universal truth. Advancement in science and technology or economic progress alone cannot benefit man.  Every man is endowed with the natural characteristic of spirituality in him. It is, therefore, important that whatever advancement or progress man has made is matched with the development of the basic human values. In the absence of this equilibrium, the conclusion is that there has been no meaningful progress. Man is both a spiritual and a materialistic being. To cater only to any one of these two, will only result in an imbalance in the natural disposition of man. In the race of this highly consumerist lifestyle man has absolutely forgotten that he has an abstract element within himself which has been neglected.

Cowardly Aluthgama Attacks

In June 2014, the world witnessed the wanton destruction perpetrated by the monk Gnanasara and his cohorts in Aluthgama. A bunch of lowly cowards who attacked unarmed civilian men, women and children. If not with the explicit, at least the implicit approval of the Rajapaksas, who were the Lord and Masters of that time. Bodu Bala Sena leader Galagoda Atte Gnanasara threatened at the rally prior to the carnage, “In this country we still have a Sinhala police; we still have a Sinhala army…….”.  Whose mind set was he representing by such statements at that time remain a mystery?  It is appropriate to question whether we are living in a modern democratic state or ….? Many were the tales of non-intervention or complicity by the Police during the June 2014 Aluthgama riots against the Muslims. Several hundreds were made homeless following arson attacks on homes, shops, factories and mosques. More than 10,000 people were displaced.  Not to mention the extreme fear they experienced for their lives and the lives of their loved ones.  What crime did these innocent people do to deserve such rabid and inhuman treatment by a mob of sissies?

War Winning Hero

The level of hype marketing the war victory was incredible at some of these Ifthar gatherings. Is it not a comedy that in this same month today (June, 2018), the loud speakers are on full blast boasting about the defeat of terrorism in Sri Lanka. While the same war winning heroMr. Mahinda Rajapaksa and, the then, all powerful Defence Secretary in June, 2014 were unable to control a mad monk running amok. Any community of people, anywhere in the world, who are being unfairly treated or left with not many democratic choices cannot be more desolate. This is not a joke. It is becoming serious by the day.

Who Is At The Crossroads?

History would have narrated a different story, had the Rajapakshes acted with the same feeling of sensitivity and accommodation demonstrated today, at the Ifthar gatherings, four years ago, in the month of June 2014. The series of Ifthar events organised by the Rajapaksas in an unprecedented wave of ‘coexistence in action’, puts the Muslim community in focus. It is relevant to ask who is at the cross roads? Is it political opportunism?  Is it the Muslim community? Is it the mainstream political parties? Or, is it an emerging new force in the person of Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa?

For the Muslims it is a matter of survival in an increasingly unfriendly environment.  Added to this pathetic situation, there is no leader to guide or direct the Muslims. Despite not having a leader, this community is as a whole blamed for the actions or inactions of the Muslim politicians.  The Muslims, like a rudderless ship, are wading in the waters, most of the time directionless. An extremely sorry state of affairs for a population of over two million people.  Their political loyalties are scattered all over. Some based on principles and others on unprincipled policies.  The loyalties of another lot defy logic or rational thinking. The traditional supporters of the United National Party continue to support the UNP even if they take the country to the brink of disaster. Not much different are the supporters of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party. It is blue for them even if the country is in the blues. There is then the ardent supporters of the Muslim parties. It is the rest who is there to pick up the crumbs from the Ifthar gatherings.  In this lot there are also the unprincipled turn coats. Do not allow your imagination to run riot thinking that this phenomenon is unique to the Muslims only.  Such thinking would be incorrect. This is a common factor in other ethnic groups as well.

Given these circumstances, the Muslim can easily become pawns for the opportunists. In the absence of a proper leadership, they are prone to take the wrong decision. The average Muslim most of the time just wonders what next to do?

You Scratch My Back….

For the politicians, who are enthusiastically backed up by the corrupt, it is the insatiable desire for power and glory.  For the Corrupt, regaining power ensures deliverance from being incarcerated in the jail.  Even the prospect of incarceration for the corrupt now looks like it will never happen. Apparently, if ‘A’ takes care of “B”, when he is power, he can expect some reciprocal protection from ‘B’ when he is in power.  On hindsight some of the elders are of the view that this country would have been better off today, had we not clamoured for independence.  Even internationally we would be respected.

A Rajapaksa Apology

The Rajapaksas would have been hailed as gentlemen had they exhibited more sincerity. A forthright apology to the Muslims for failing to contain the pogrom especially, when they were the all-powerful Lord and Master of this tiny island would have added value. The Muslims do not seek revenge but they are hurt. Terribly hurt. They are hurt to the core of their feelings. That hurt feeling can be balmed only by sincerely acknowledging the mistake and then an assurance of non-occurrence.  This would go a long way to bridge the gap for the Muslims from being isolated within a citizenry of the country.

Three Awards By Ranil/Maithri

The ‘Gintota Award’, the ‘Ampara Award’ and the ‘Digana Award’ were three major awards conferred by the joint Ranil/Maithri government to the Muslims. Even the Rajapakses would be put to shame by this sterling performance. Violence was perpetrated in all these three places against the Muslims causing losses amounting to several millions of rupees. It would do some good to the credibility of the Ranil/Maithri duo if they efficiently prosecute the perpetrators of the recent Kandy incident at least, leave alone Gintota and Ampara.  For additional mileage or, to add another feather in their cap, they can appoint the long called for Commission of Inquiry into the Aluthgama incident.

The main question that confronts the Muslims is, ‘Who can they trust’? Evidently both sides have not given protection to the Muslim community. Neither have they given any assurance.  Imagine the unfortunate level of divisiveness in our country. Instead of speaking in terms of protection to the citizens, reference is made to protection of a particular ethnic community.

The Muslims are today at the crossroad. A gentlemanly Rajapaksa apology or the efficient prosecution and closure of the Digana riot’s accused will have the potential to turn the tables either way. The forthcoming elections will reveal some interesting results.

Deliver and you shall be judged.  This applies equally to the Rajapaksas and the Ranil/Maithri duo.

    “It is, therefore, important that whatever advancement or progress man has made is matched with the development of the basic human values.”

    Yes, can agree on that.

    What have the Sinhala-“Buddhists” learned in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho?
    What have the Tamil -“Hindus” learned in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho?
    What have the “Muslims” learned in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho?

    What have their respective Monks, Priests and Ulama learned in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho?

    The criminals from Alutgama are still at large. We all know who the criminals are? Many wear yellow robes, and belong to the Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” Cult, that is an insult to the Buddha and his Dhamma.

        John,

        You are reading your own IQ results, 79 or lower. Don’t be concerned, a large fraction of the Para-Parliamentarians elected by the Paras have IQ’s around 79 or below.

        Whatever, ACJU , Monks, Priests etc. are all after their own self-interest. Yes, stupidity as a virtue is NOT restricted to to the Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”, but is also found among the Para-Muslims, especially the Para-Wahhabi Muslims. All are nuts.

          Dumb Ass Amarasiri: In order to go to University you need a IQ of at least 115. Sri lanka has so many to fill even 50 universities. but IQ is not an indication of being SMart or Intelligent. YOu beczme Islam means you are in the lowest IQ category.

            Dum, Moda and stupid J.

            ” In order to go to University you need a IQ of at least 115. Sri lanka has so many to fill even 50 universities….”

            The mean IQ of the Land of Native Veddah Aethho illegally occupied by the Paras is 79.

            With a standard deviation(SD) of 15, t wo SD above the mean is 79+30 =109, with a z score of 2.0, the percentage above IQ of 109 is 2.28% of the population. Of course the AL students have been pre-screened and and a greater percentage than 2.28% of them will have an IQ above 109.

            National IQ scores. Country rankings.

            https://photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html

            For an IQ of 115, the z-score is 2.4, it is only 0.82% of the population, but again, since the AL students have been pre-screened, a grater percentage and 0.82% would have an IQ above 115.

            Those with IQ’s above 115 will go to the sciences, engineering and medicine. and those with leas than 115 will go to the other subjects.

            The IQ’s of the Peradeniya students were measured years ago. The ranking was
            Physical sciences. Engineering, Medicine, biological Sciences and the Arts faculty. There was no surprise here. Go and get hold of the data, or go am measure the IQs.

        Those Sinhala/Buddhists who were responsible for several riots from 1915 to date had never been subjected to legal process nor fitting punishment, including D S Senanayake whose bum/neck was saved by Pon Ramanathan.

    Mass,
    Same old nonsense and bullsh1t!!!!!!!! Anyway, you’ve just got what you have been demanding as a gift for Ramazan- Ifthar , that is the imprisonment of great Gnanasara thero.
    /
    – Aluthgama -Muslims assulted a monk, a boy in a Muslim shop, and threw stones at Sinhalese who were heading home after the meeting( there is a youtube video clip as well).
    +
    -Ginthota – Muslims attcked some innocent Sinhalese over road accident.
    +
    -Ampare- Muslims served some Sinhalese with food (kottu) which was unsuitable for human consumption. The cunning Muslim ‘kottu baas’ claimed there was only a lump of flour. The ultimate question is, how come the so called lump of flour was as hard as a piece of concrete? Muslims don’t allow Public Heath Inspectors (PHIs) to come anywhere near their eateries. There are many incidents that Muslims have assaulted PHIs.
    +
    – Kandy- Muslims ignited the riot by killing innocent Sinhalese family man and they killed another Sinhalese family man during the Muslims started riot. Now some innocent Sinhalese have been arrested on suspicion and no bail out within sight for them and . But the Muslim Muslim culprit have been given bail within hours. The judge is a Muslim.
    /
    So why the hell does any Sinhalese apologize to Muslims for Muslims started riots???? It’s Muslims who must apologize and pay compensation to Sinhalese.
    /
    Since heroic Gnanasara thero is away for the next 6 month, the Muslim culprits are determined make the most and have already made very BIG plans for next 6 months: eg. smuggle in Muslims, drugs, etc; land grabbing ( more Muslim colonies in Wijitha pura- Anuradhapura, Knuckles range- Kandy, etc) and produce more fraudulent land deeds for them. ———————————————————————————————————————————————–
    Anyway Mass, what is happening to investigations of so called attackes on Muslims own businesses and mosques? where are the CCTV footages of so called attacks on Muslims’ premises? how come there is no single word about it in your article? why have Muslim begged Sinhala politicians to stop all the investigations? LIARS!!!!!!

      John the racist LIAR

      Gnanasara was not sent to jail by Muslim but by the brave Sinhalese woman Sandhya Ekneligoda. This evil thug can expect more god’s wrath in the future too.

      Aluthgama riot was carried out by evil thug Gnanasara and his racist cohorts. There are enough proofs including vedios. You can see some in You Tube.

      Ginthota too was by racist over a small incident which police can handle.

      Ampara also 100% fabrications in order to riot and loot Muslim’s. Show proof of at least one PHI assaulted anywhere in Sri Lanka.

      Sinhalese family man was killed by you racist to start the fumes of riots. Verify from that man’s parents. The other Sinhalese died when the grenade exploded in his hand before throwing it to target. God’s wrath.

      Sinhalese does not owe any apology nor do the Muslim. But those racist and their racist ministers and low class dogs in the forces owes an apology to Muslims.

      90% drug smugglers are Sinhalese. See the latest news, Wela Sudda although in prison his accomplice and wife got caught for possessing 25 millions worth of heroine. The lands in Knucle Range owned by State Plantation Corporation and Elkaduwa Plantation Ltd. was given by them to their associates and families with the collaboration of politicians. This is the game of all your politicians. If Muslims were able to grab lands and make forge deed all your politicians and administrators in your department are number one rogues. I think that is what you are pointing at. Your hero Gnanasara contested in the election he got only 1000 odds votes. If he contest again he won’t get even 100 including your vote.

    Why muslims do not talk about WAhabi attacks on other muslims in KAthankudy and MEgomuwa. Why sinhala politicians should not reach to muslims, when muslim politicians are womanizers (what does the Hakeem’s file say), and when first class theives (How did Rishad Bathiuddin get rich ?) who got bond scam profits are the politicians

    In terms of numbers involved Aluthgama is not a serious incident at all. These Muslim writers want to create a mountain out of molehill. Check how many mosques were bombed during the same week in Pakistan.

    Muslims cut the branch they were sitting on. Their fall cannot be prevented now by crying or chest beating. Their leaders, the axe handles, stood long to cut their brethren, the Tamils. Opportunistic Muslim leaders and writers lacked foresightedness; used the Arabian Oil Money to bribe the Sinhala Ministers and took partnership in Muslim Sinhala Government to do atrocities against Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils. They thought the Sinhalese are Modayas and they can prosper on their stupidity forever, but the situation now is, “Saathu Mirandaal…..”( If the innocent frightened….) Crying or chest beating will not help to avoid or allow escape; she slept with a man, now she must patiently bear the pain to bear the child . Every Sinhala man and woman knows the Saguni Muslim Ministers, unavoidably clinging to their 8th graders and corrupting them with Arabian Oil Money. The Sinhala Ministers who gets the share of the Oil Money wants to invite the Muslim politicians to breakfast dinners; but the average Sinhalese, who struggle to feed their hungry stomachs, has un-excusing anger over the damage these Muslim leaders doing to their old, cultural land, with Arabian imports. Even if the Muslim mass falls on the feet of Sinhala Mass, their anger on the notorious Muslim leaders is not going to vapor out easily.

        I may be a low class dog. But the worst is you and your Muslims Politicians are classless bitches sleep with the nastiest Sinhala Politicians, Old King, New King, and Ranil… and even that is if they win only. It is too late now to hide from Sinhala Mass. It is the preparation they were making from 1915 from the time DS came out of Prison. As I have already said, you are going to take it; you are not running to Arabia this time. Don’t open up your record to others see.

        We suffered 30 years under hand of another race Sinhalese. But you keep for 70 Muslim Women below bitches’ level under the MMDA and that is bringing the Wahhabi payment and bribing the Sinhala Politicians. Really a proud achievement!

        increase the wedge between Sinhalese and Muslim
        If you have enjoyed a cordial relationship with Sinhalese from 1915, what bothers you now to write this? You are saying I am only increasing the wedge. I guess you or Hakeem or Rishard inserted the wedge originally with your stupidity?

        By that you honestly agree that you attempted to fool Sinhalese thinking that they are Modaya, but now that dreams of Sand Castle falling down. You thought Tamils are Modayas-that worked for you. So you stood up to destroy Tamils. In CT, Martin Niemöller poem is presented almost every week, somewhere. Not just you, all Muslim leaders and writers are worst fool to ignore such an Enlighted Prophecy but false try to read five times a day all the Hadith as the Koran; best Wishes .

        You already appear to be struggling as I predicted in my earlier comment. You can wiggle or dance, but you are going to bear the child for which you have become the mother.

    This dupe master is crying loud about Aluthgama commission but he knows that it was Hakeem, who went and collected the evidences and destroyed them to save Old Royals from Aluthgama. None of the dirty rascal Muslim leaders or Police Agents helped DIG Indran to protect Muslim civilians in Aluthgama.

    TNA won the last election in EPC. TNA booked hotel, paid the rent and was waiting to Hakeem to arrive so they can jointly form the government. But the dirty Hakeem, while chest beating about Dambulla Mosque and ordering Mano Ganesan to shut up if he has not done Suneth, then went and forged a deal with his Aluthgama murder partner.

    UNP and SLFP know Muslim ministers will join only with the winning party. They will move their pawns accordingly, irrelevant of Usuf’s Chest beating drama.

    Usuf’s bait is not going to make all Sinhalese to go blind and bite it.

    A gentlemanly Rajapaksa apology or the efficient prosecution and closure of the Digana riot’s accused will have the potential to turn the tables either way. The forthcoming elections will reveal some interesting results. Deliver and you shall be judged.

    Who can the Muslims trust? Don’t trust your leaders. They are milking what they can while being Ministers. Don’t trust your rich. They are busy making money whatever way they can. Don’t loose your roots by trusting Wahabis who are twisting Islam in ways that are different from the ancestral Islam of Sri Lanka.

    Trust is essentially a two-way relationship and like all such relationships, it’s strength and stability depends equally on the integrity, honesty and uprightness of both players involved.
    .

    So there are actually not one, but two questions that confront Muslims today politically.
    “Who can we trust ?” and “Who perceives us as trustworthy ?”
    One reason why the Muslims find themselves ‘at the crossroads’ today is because of their failure to accept the reality of the second question.
    .

    The writer is not being pragmatic when he asks for ‘a gentlemanly apology’. Come on, Brother Usuf, is it realistic to expect any Sinhala Buddhist Politician to apologies to a minority community for a course of action, which could deliberately be misrepresented by his rivals as being detrimental to the Buddhist community ? Would it not be politically suicidal for a Sinhala Buddhist Politician to even consider winning the full support of 10% of the voters at the risk of being rejected by another 70% ?
    .

    What should have been requested for, Brother Usuf, is not ‘a gentlemanly apology’, but ‘an expression of regret’ (mea culpa) for not taking the actions required to forcefully curb the anti-Muslim activities during that period that lead to civil disorder affecting all communities.
    The words and deeds of the Rajapakses in the recent past seem to suggest that they are doing just that – and are being received favorably by the more progressive members of the Muslim community.

    Well, there are pogroms against Muslims everywhere in the world. Just get used to it. Whenever there is a conflict the, common denominator is always the Muslim troublemaker. Just like the recent incident where a Sinhalese lorry driver was needlessly killed. Of course, Allah’s very very very honest children never mention that. LOL!

    All the Sinhala-Muslim riots starting at Gampola in 1915 were started by Muslims. Guys like Mass Usuf following Demalu in this country are trying to twist the truth and put the blame on Sinhala Buddhists. Muslims in Sri Lanka are also an ungrateful bunch. Sinhala Buddhists are paying the price for the blunder committed by King Senerath who saved Muslims from Portuguese butchers.

      Eagle eye,

      That’s why I say, not just in SL, but anywhere in the world if there is a conflict the common denominator is the Moslem.

      They bring drugs into SL, they engage in illegal abortion clinics, they run illegal abattoirs, they run illegal charities and the list goes on. This menace should be eradicated from the island of Sri Lanka once and for all.

        Conflict don’t come without a reason so if you see any conflict anywhere in the world it was because your white masters trying to control Muslims. Who brings drugs to Sri Lanka? 90% Sinhalese and about 8% Tamil wholesalers from north. I am not fabricating, these are news media reports. Few days back the biggest heroine smuggler Wela Suda’s accomplice and wife got caught for having 25 millions worth of heroine. Half of retailers are Sinhalese women. They carry packets inside their jackets so Police would not dare to touch those parts. Abortion clinics 100% run by Sinhalese and some Tamils. Muslims will never go for abortion because it is a sin. Abattoirs run by Muslim but 90% of gulpers are Sinhalese. Muslims will never try to migrate as you did by hiring your wife to a white.

        You may be right with your retarded mind, the conflicts and riots of 1958, 1960, 1961, 1977, 1981, 1983, … were caused by Muslims.

        Congratulations for typing your revisionist contemporary history.

    Thank you Mass L Usuf for calling a spade a spade.
    Yes, Aluthgama June 2014Pogrom was a pogrom. Four deaths (three Muslims and one Tamil) may be ‘small’. Compared to previous pogroms it was mild. But it was only a rehearsal for what is in store. The hoped for death of a Sinhalese did not occur.
    .
    Yet again the Lankan Muslim leaders showed their duplicitous trait. Before it is late, the intent of the pogroms against must be raised in parliament and then with UNHCR. But All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama (ACJU) will not let them. Why? Well the answer will surface in due course. Watch this space.

      Ever heard of that joke?
      On a serious note, four deaths doesn’t amount to a pogrom. A pogrom is when there is mass scale murder, mayhem and anarchy where civil law enforcement agencies have no control over.

      Is that what happened at Aluthgama?

    Not seen a single muslim writter ever criticizing or pointing finger at their real muslim racists who started the incidents. Such a racist lot. There are 1001 jeppos and yahapaluwas to blame the sinhalese.

    Now man, look , you blame rajapakshas fro Aluthgama riots , do you blame yahapalu for the kandy riots ???? If there is someone who benefited from the aluthgama riots it were the Yahapaluwas…. So when you look for a root cause of something look for who gets benefited from it.

    Stop your racism and try to live like Sri Lankans.

    Please please spare a thought for the Rohingyas suffering the rain and storm in roofless refugee camps. They escaped the pogrom unleashed by the Burmese Junta. The Junta needed to genocide the Muslim Rohingyas. Nature is doing this for the Junta.
    What the hell are you doing Karma?
