Anti-Muslim Assaults In Teldeniya: Kandy Under Curfew, Police On Alert As BBS Shows Up

The arrival of Buddhist monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara of Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) and Dan Priyasath who calls himself ‘Savior of the Sinhalese’ to pay last respects to a Sinhala man who succumbed to injuries sustained when beaten up by a group of Muslims has raised fears of imminent communal clashes in Teldeniya and other places in the Kandy District.

Sudarshana Gunawardena, Director General, Department of Government Information, told Colombo Telegraph that a curfew was imposed in the Kandy District and the Police put on alert to ensure that the enforcement of the law proceeds without hindrance and the situation does not spiral into an inter-communal conflagration.

“The Government appeals to all parties and especially the general public to act with responsibility and remain calm. The suspects have been arrested and the law will take its course,” Gunawardena said.

It is reported that a Hartal was declared in Digana, Teldeniya, Udispattuwa and Medamahanuwara protesting the attack. The Police and STF were deployed to bring the situation under control after twp shops in Moragahamulla were set on fire by angry mobs. Twenty-four people suspected of involvement in these acts of violence have been arrested by the Teldeniya police so far.

The victim, M.G. Kumarasinghe (41), a resident of Ambala in Medamahanuwara, had been undergoing treatment for a week at the Kandy Teaching Hospital after the assault and succumbed to his injuries last night.

The altercation had taken place allegedly when a group of men, later identified as Muslims, had been angered due to the victim not allowing them to overtake his vehicle. Another version has the victim accidentally hitting the side mirror of the vehicle in which the assailants were travelling but had not stopped to sort the matter out.

There is no evidence whatsoever that the assault was racially motivated. The assailants, all residents of Ambagahalanda, Digana were arrested by the police while a three-wheeler was also taken into custody.

Gnanasar and Priyasath, both representing extremist groups, are currently on bail over cases where they are accused of inciting communal violence against the Muslim community. Gnanasara Thero and the BBS, in particular, played a leading and violent role in the Aluthgama riots a few years ago.

      It is a Shame to see this man Gnanasara referred to, as a Buddhist Monk!
      Enough for People to turn away from The Buddha’s Dhamma!
      The President should take some action against Him, before he destroys Yahapalanaya, and hands the Government back to the Rajapaksas, who have been Sponsoring Him!

          ” Do not think world revolve around muslims.”

          Does the world revolve around Sinhala/Buddhism, Sinhala/Buddhists or the Sinhala/Buddhist Mahasangha?

            No world do not revolve around sinhalese. Do we go to tamilnadu to order Tamil make their country sinhala? Do we govto China and order Chinese? We go to Italy to tell them to impose sinhala traditions heritage in their country? Make italy sinhala? We only want to live in our own country as we want. But you go to other people county and order terrorise them to submit them to Islam. Forcely impose sharia arabization muslimasation building mosque every corner . all this to annialate native cultures and make thy look muslim. This is whybpeople say muslims think world must revolve around them becasevthie religion say it. Supreme muslims vs dhimmis. We won’t live in dhimmitude under humiliation. If there is a war somewhere muslims are one side. 99%

              Now donkey Ruwan explain how Muslim doing this in Sri Lanka? Who is stopping you living the way you want? Raping women and children, killing, selling children to foreigner for sex, everywhere clubs and bars and also kasippu joints to booze, Buddhist for name sake only, except the very old who go to temples, Buddhist TV Channels only viewed by lesser than 3% while others go to rock-n-roll channels. All of your such activities have increased not going down. So how can you say Muslim trying to convert you. What is the native culture you follow? 90% men and 50 women follows western attire, education, administration, medicine, universities, hospitals etc. all followed western way. So tell here what is your own you are following for Muslims to turn away you. Tell something of your own to be proud of?

        They are just XYY criminals.

        These men have no control on their testesterone. Please read the high criminals imprisoned in Guantanmbe.

        There you will get more.
        Thoese men like Ghanasara XYY are eunachs, for some reasons, not being able to face lay life, they have entered to sanga hood.
        Unfortunatley, they are like bulls in porcelan house when acting in sanga life.
        This they proved by themselves not once several doezens of times.
        But pot holes filled lanken law and order system, has not brought any law reforms to crush these criminals.
        HAD this been in europe or s pore, those crminals would have been jailed for ever in those countries.

      There is a massive moral crisis in Lanka today. The religious and secular leaders of the coungry are corrupt, unethical and uneducated.Buddhist monks are corrupt like the political leaders who have paid them.
      Why is Balu Sena Gnanasara not behind bars after all his criminal acts? Why is some unkonwn land grabbing Buddhist monk’s funeral taking 6 days and held at Independence Sq?
      Why are the Mercedes Benz Asgiriya and Malwatta monks silent when this SInhala Buddhist violence is an insult to the Lord Buddha and his teaching of ahimsa?!

      But the timing of these attacks happening after the local government elections and failure of Bondscam Ranil Wickramasinghe to resign or be impeached for robbing Cenral Bank is suspicious – to distract the moda masses from political corruption. There were attacks in the south on Muslims when the Bondscam report was released too -to distract the people.

      Attacks on minorities always are motivated by CORRUPT politicians to DISTRACT, DIVED and RULE the moda masses. This is an established pattern in India and now Sri Lanka.

      A pattern is emerging : Targeting of minorities happens before and after Elections and points to POLITICAL players – when SInhala politicians are competing and corrupt and this is their strategy – both Mahinda Jarapassa and Ranil. DIVED and RULE by distracting the MODA Sinhala masses, from their CORRUPTION and CRIMINALITY.
      The timing of these incidents after the recent local government election defeat of Bondscam Ranil shows that there are external elements who want to keep RW, their agent in power. Of course Mahinda Jarapassa is a Racist and he needs to be in the same prison cell with Bondscam Ranil.
      Perhaps SOME Muslim youth are getting tired of SInhala Buddhist Majority racism and attacking back? This is how the LTTE started too!

      These “riots” were organized to distract everyone from the ” No Confidence motion against Bondscam Ranil” in Parliament today.

      On the day before the PCI Bondscam report was released, also there were localized attacks against Muslims in the South.

      The big picture is that .Ranil and Mahinda Jarapassa are playing the same ethnic politics game – to stay in power.. They are partners in crime – playing religious and ethnic politics to stay in power and loot the people’s wealth. Their minions use ” riots” to distract people from the real crisis which is political corruption, economic inequality and debt crisis.
      There is also a foreign hand in the keep Ranil in power agenda – Lanka is a geopolitical hot spot like Maldives and religious clashes all over the world targeting Muslims to distract from the fact that the neoliberal global economic system is corrupt.
      The ethnic-riots machine is how Corrupt Politicians distract the Moda Masses from their corruption. The name of this game is : DISTRACT, DIVIDE and RULE of Corrupt Politicians.

    Very sad situation. And it is lovely to read everyone condemning it. It.is the dream of a few to see our country divided and they will try their best. Im glad the general public are together. Except for one judgemental person who thinks muslims deserve what they are getting i m happy we are a united nation. By the way whoever you are Jim its not muslims who do bad. Its terrorists. You might feel i will side with them being a muslim. But truth is truth. Its not a religion but terrorism that is destrying the world! Get your facts right. Im a muslim who has sinhalese buddhist parents, one hindu brother and one christian brother. But we all love each other!
    I sincerely hope everything comes under control soon and the real culprits are punished. We are loved all over the world for being a lovely natikn of friendly people. Lets keep it that way.

      You obviously have not been all over the world . All over the world , where i go , and i’v been to quite a bit of it , you find thousands and thousands of displaced Tamils. The had to flee their own country for fear of repression and torture by the Sri Lankan army. Before anyone comments with the usual standard reply , no they are not all LTTE terrorists , in fact by far the majority of them are just normal people trying their best to make their way in the world with a peaceful life. Sorry to say but i think you may have a bit of the ” frog in the well ” mentality.

        You know that is not Muslims option. They have 60,Islamic nations support. But this is our only homeland. We have no sinhala nations to support us. So We have nowhere to go if Muslims steal our land. its our job to decide do or die. We always did from Dravidian empires to Portuguese to Dutch to to British colonsers empires. We will always resist and depend our home.

Worst come to worst we are going to stand and fight back without fleeing and I hope the government won’t allow the minority racist Sinhalese to take upper-hand. You and your bullshit stories Muslim traders spied for Sinhalese. You started the war and brought damage to your community. We did not start anything, it was the racist Sinhalese trying to start on false pretext. These racist going to be the losers finally.

        Now see what is happening your people are paying for their fake patriotism.
        Have you been in a coma for the last 30 years?
        Do you know the damage ..destruction ..killings by your own Muslims
        in Tamil areas?
        Your people have to trade with Tamils for their living in N-E and petty traders worked as spies thus help Sinhala forces to butcher Tamils.
        Don’t parade your ignorance here.
        He He He with Saudi money pouring into mosques these jokers are trying to pretend like Arabs ….but the truth is Arabs treat Asian Muslims as shits.
        Do you know even Borah..Memon community are not accepting you here?
        In a simple word …you reap what you sow.
        Import camels..green flags…and a plastic sword and march towards attackers if you have bones else keep quiet.
        Sri Lanka Rohingyas in the pipeline.
        Muslims here should adopt Arab as their mother tongue and language of learning.
        A person who talks the Tamil language at home is a TAMIL full stop.

          Cholan the crow don’t caw lies here. We do not have fake patriotism. We are patriotic to the country we are living, we are not asking portion of land. All you write here is fabrications. Traders do not think as Muslims, Tamils or Sinhalese and what they do is for living. They do not take free dole from others but give their service and make money. A small percentage of racist Sinhalese and politicians are responsible for this. What were you doing with Arabs to know Asian Muslims are shit to them? Lending to them or pimping to them? Then you Asian kaffir must worst shit to them. Memon community and we are same and there is no question of accepting anything. We and Memon don’t accept Borahs because they are Shias. It is the other way about, what racist do they will reap finally. The difference between Lankan Muslims and Rohingya are like mountain and slope so don’t expect us to give in to the racist, whether Sinhalese or Tamils. Our mother tongue is Moorish mixed Tamil dialect but many speaks Sinhala and English. We are not Tamils. Full stop.

    As a Muslim, I fully condemn that cowardice act of killing that innocent Sinhala boy. These cowardice Muslim boys and their parents should be made to take complete responsibility of this ugly act for bringing up their kids in that sort of thuggish manner that incited them to kill an innocent boy without any help at the moment – Totally Unacceptable and these guys should be severely punished.

      Isharath the police had already arrested two people who had beaten the Sinhalese driver but he died after 10 days. The racist monks who visited the funeral responsible for mob riot. What about murders committed by Sinhalese daily, sometime more than on murder. So according to you if a Muslim commit murder mob take over the case and no need of police involvement.

      The sinhala boy was not killed because he was a sinhala boy. It was a road rage incident, and no matter who the perpetrators were, they should be dealt with by law. Your and the majority muslim petty attitude to make scapegoats of your own kind (i.e. Muslims) is deplorable. Have you no shame? How quick are you and your own ministers to quickly point at some fellow muslims and demand they be executed? With people like you around who needs enemies. You’ll just want to apportion blame to some in your community as long as your own safety is ensured.

    Myanmar formula is being used in Sri Lanka ..at least Bangladesh is there to accept, accommodate and feed Rohingyas?
    Who will help Muslims who love to dress like Arabs but talk in Tamil at home and out?
    Muslims must come to the reality and accept they are also Tamils like Muslims in Tamil Nadu..your imaginative Arab identity will never help you.
    There is news from Tamil areas that Muslims youth enter from neighboring Muslim villages and try to make fun with Tamil girls thinking police will help them if there is an attack against these rowdies.

We did it against dravidian empires invaders who killed burned our cities civilizations for thousand years. Dravidians kills millions Sinhalese in their own homeland. We resisted both portugees dutch and British empires . we will resist any group that is try to kill us steal our land hurt our women and children . Muslims were never our friend. We allow them live in our land. But they work to brirish kills thousands of us during 1818 resistance. We know ltte terrorists was born in lebonan and Syrian terror camp too. Muslims created ltte.

If worst come to worst we will stand up and fight back instead of running like you kallathonis did. We did not do anything to Tamils in the past it was you Tamils brought disaster to Tamils by starting a war. We don’t need to identify ourselves as Tamil because we are not Tamils. We are not depending on Arabs, it is you Tamils and Sinhalese depending on Arabs by millions to have bread at home. If Sinhalese try to use Myanmar formula it will be them who will fall into fire pits.

    Bloody humbug. enough is enough. Sinhala Buddhists are attacked or poisoned (Ampara incident) or killed by Muslims extremists. Sinhala Buddhists are the victims of Muslim Extremists that have infiltrated into the hamlets, towns and Cities of Sri Lanka. Then the Sinhala Buddhists are again arrested (when protested against Muslim attrocities) and persecuted by the Government authorities and the corrupt Judiciary related agencies. The political leadership of the country seems to turn a blind on Muslim extremists knowingly that their survival is solely depend on the support of Muslims.

    Few Months ago we saw some funeral photos and video here and in other medias of a Sinhala family somewhere in Chilow, for my memory. Right after the election of 2015, anything happened in North was associated with LTTE. Aava Kuzhu and other violence were said as LTTE revival efforts. A Jacket wrapped in a Sinhala Newspaper was told by Slap Party leader G. L. Peiris as were purported to bring to Wellawatte and target important political figures. The reality is the poisonous atmosphere out there is every event, without missing, being used flare up communal hate to use for political purpose. Judge Ilancheliyan was appointed to investigate Vidya’s murder case with other two Judges. There were many topsy-turvy stories came out during this proceeding. At some point the Judge was targeted, (though not confirmed) and his Sinhala personal guard threw his life on that and saved the Judge. The murderer was a past LTTE operative. Judge Ilancheliyan had visited to the funeral. As it was about a Judge and his guard, the politicians or ministers or religious big head were not there. The funeral was eventually cited as an example of communities caring communities.

    It was that funeral we were talking about at the start of this. I happened to watch somewhere else a video of this Sinhala grieving family’s funeral, has been linked. The families’ dismay on the loss was similar in both video. No language was needed to sense it. But the unrelated visitors had been shown prominently in this video added disappointment & pain to pain. A group of priests has gone to the funeral with only one motive of using it to bring out their political point. Nobody can tell a priest not to visit a grieving family. Their first needed place is that kind of situation. The family cannot be advised not to let them in. That is not the advice that can console them at this time. This is dilemma difficult to deal with. Probably very serious one, because this particular dilemma type has been pushing Lankawe from the mountain to bottom from the time of Lankawe received it freedom.

    The basic idea is, if Sinhalese kills another Sinhalese it is murder.. But Muslim killing another Sinhalese is racially motivated murder.
    We have lived through one war in our entire life. Didn’t we learn a lesson. Didn’t we learn that violence only led to more violence and destruction. We are suppose to be a country with Buddhist majority. But probably less than 10% are true Buddhist who actually know and follow the religion properly. Rest are extremist who try to “protect” the religion. When did protecting a religion became more important than lives of others? Where in Buddhism did people learn its alright to harm others to achieve our goals.
    War between religion happens because of extremist from both religions.
    Just because few people are extremist but they do not represent the entire population.
    Our only choice is when possible stand-up against these extremist and when not possible, at least not stand along with them.Unless we play our part right, we may have to watch another blood bath which we could have easily prevented.
    Reality is, if we start a war, at the end of the day we will die or we will live with constant fear for our lives while those who actually started this war will thrive and will be protected from harm with our hard earned money.

    We all ( I mean people who want to ) know where Bikshu Gnanissara got his Leadership Training from…
    And what the Goal of the Training was..
    And who organized the Training Program.
    Economic Hardships, Low Standard of Living and abject Poverty in combination is the Root Cause sort of this behavior.
    Some live in super luxury surrounds inside A/C condos. looking down at slum dwellers and driving Hybrids to take their kiddies and loved ones, while the poor work for a pittance.
    And it has got worse under Yahapalana Economics where the first Finance Minister bragged that LKR 80 Lakhs are monkey feed (. peanuts) for him.
    That was to justify his Family’s 150 Million Condo Gift for dishing out Yahapalanaya to his rich mates.
    Sillysena may have Independent inquiries using the same Independent people who Dr Ranil also appoints on and off.
    Will that eliminate the root cause?.

      Bikshu Gnanissara is living in luxury and driven around in luxury cars well looked after.

      By day he is a thus AKA A Buddhist monk yellow robes and by night he is in a three piece suit sipping expensive champagne and with caviar.

      He and his side kicks get transported to trouble spots in no time.
      Perhaps using the RAF?
      Tomorrow he will appear in Colombo in pristine yellow robe after spending the night in luxury

    If a Muslim allegedly killed a Sinhalman for what ever reason, personal feud probably, let the law and order take the matter in their hand.
    Does it warrant the guardians of Buddhist religion to take to the streets like thugs and encourage fellow Buddhist to go on the riot and set fire to Muslim properties?

    Is this Sri Lanka Sinhala Buddhism.

    why oh why The President, the PM the Police the Maha Sanga are unable to condemn/arrest/punish these Monks?

    Why oh why the moderate liberal young and old Sinhala Buddhist do not have the courage to take to the streets shouting Enough is Enough?

    Why?

      The Mullahs who saw Islamic myths must be put away first, for good preferably. We need to take back Kandy town and Sri Lanka.

        “We need to take back Kandy town and Sri Lanka.”

        Good idea.
        Take it back and give it back to us as Kandy once belonged to my people as recently as 1400 AD.

      Softy,
      Before we talk about Sinhala man’s right let’s talk about yours, ok? Right?

      alight!
      Then…
      Why can you ever be right softy? Is that because of your minority complex that you don’t have rights?

      In that case why don’t think of becoming a Muslims? Short and sweet! You won’t have any more minority complex feeling. Problem Sold.

      We all have to follow the laws of this land.

      Agree. But we should never encourage people taking law unto their hands.
      The murderers of the Sinhalese man should get death sentence. Assaulting an innocent man to death over an incident on the highway is unacceptable. It is cruel. Anyway, that doesn’t mean that Sinhalese have a right to attack other innocent Muslims who have nothing to do with murderers.
      We already have two black marks 1. 1983 2. Aluthgama. Although ordinary Sinhalese have nothing to do with both the incidents which had been carried out by interested parties involving politicians, the blemish it has created on Sinhalese as a nation will be there forever. That is why we should be careful not to encourage a repetition.
      The assault on the Sinhalese man on the road was not based on ethnicity. Anyways, if it was a reversal, then the entire international community along with the Diplomatic Corps, all international media and rights groups will give it to a racial and religious twist and denounce Sinhalese as murderers. The world will treat us differently and unfairly if the assaulter was a Sinhalese. That is why we should show our maturity and restraint.
      .
      We must put our feet into other person’s shoes and look at the matter. Everyone, Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims. Nobody should instill fear in another person. We should encourage people to respect law and order and avoid retaliation.
      .

      Jim softy the modaya, whether a Sinhalese man killing a Muslim or Muslim man killing a Sinhalese is murder and its left to the police to punish the murderer. Why racial riot? Some bastard politicians and their racist monks were behind this. There are a small percentage of Kochchi Sinhalayas and they are the racist Sinhalese here. These racist Sinhalese were from that stock.

        You have the right to dream.
        Even Muslims in their own countries are weeping for the deaths of their kith and kin and starving.
        There is no one today to come and help you ..big mouth Kadafi and Saddam ..Osama ..Ashraaf all are enjoying 37 virgins and grapes elsewhere.
        You know why Rohingya in Myanmar are suffering today…. it all because of Saudi money

    This is a serious situation here being handled very badly by the govt. One problem is that the Govt has lost its legitimacy and is irrelevant to the people of the area.The govt has lost all respect and regard from the Sinhalese people. Consequently no Minister dare show up in the area and call for reason and peace. If Sirisena/RW go there they will be hooted out. There should be an immediate plan to mobilise local religious leaders from all religions, community leaders, and have on going discussions to ensure peace and reduce tension.People will listen to Mahinda who I am sure will be ready to assist. I know some rabid political extremists will ridicule the suggestion. That is exactly the problem here.

      “People will listen to Mahinda who I am sure will be ready to assist.”
      He is the chap who is at the very bottom of this. He is doing all this to destabilize the government so that he or one of his brothers can come into power again!

    No one has suggested yet that Sarath Fonseka should be sent to Digana with a platoon of soldiers.After all he is Field Marshall. All these bigots who think that S.F. can bring Law and order should clamour for S.F. to lead the charge in Digana.
    Cannon,to the right, cannon to the left, into the valley of death rode the six hundred! This will be no light brigade. The silence is deafening.

    Sudarshana Gunawardena, Director General, Department of Government Information says:
    “The Government appeals to all parties and especially the general public to act with responsibility and remain calm. The suspects have been arrested and the law will take its course”.

    All clear then: The government appeals for the public to act responsibly, while the government scratches its balls and vacillates over how to stop the growing impunity which with the racist bastards operate. As for the ‘law taking its own course’ pull the other one, its got bells on. In this country, governments only invoke ‘law and order’ when it is politically suitable – and no government in the last seventy years has considered the distress of a minority as politically suitable.

    It looks like our politicians are up to their old game once again, and ALL our communities will suffer once more in the next conflagration. Then again, this is what our politicians like best – chaos in the country.

      Patriotic Citizen

      Paranoid and kicking.
      Why don’t you send your super smart ass patriotic brigadier to put down the riot, slit as many Muslim throats as possible? Why don’t you also arm the saffron clad thug Gnanasara who once demanded T56 and praised VP for standing up to Muslims?

    We are not a horoscope readers or fortune tellers. But what we see is, Muslim environment is not that much regardful to Muslims leaders. Unlike in the past, this time, UNP Prime Minister and SLFP President have unitedly shown concern of the violence. Whatever could be the interpretation for that new behavior, but it can control the violence faster than in the past. But Muslim community going to ask for explanation from the leadership for what happened in the last three years.
    We have written many comments of Muslim leaders’ selfishness and the 2015 January election when Muslims deviated from Muslim leaders, who were in the SLFP and voted to Common Candidate.

    This is completely different from Tamils’ history. From the time the Ahimsa agitation started, Tamils voted only for one party. Then, once the armed struggle started, Tamils called LTTE as boys (Podiyal- translation is “boys”, but the denotations is “our children”). Once the diplomatic agitation started, they remained with TNA, though they could not agree with TNA’s mentality of accepting whatever Sinhala Government would give them. Traitors were there in Tamils. But Tamils behaviors were influenced by an angel like SJV, Netaji like Pirapaharan & diplomatic Sampanthar Aiya. Because of their reliability, people excused their mistakes and kept going back to them. But Muslim leadership failed to recognize that they are minority & they need to walk on the edge of the sword in behavior. The united Muslim mass has been supporting the leaders until now without faith. But in last election, there was number violence within the Muslim community; even boycotted & refused access to leaders.

    Muslim leadership, (may be still getting the votes but) losing the followership of the mass -especially youngsters. In other words, it has lost the touch of feeling of the Muslims, but still knowing well all their feelings. That is a big mistake in politics, where leaderships, if know, always respond to their supporters’ calls. That is the political protection for the mass and the leaders.

    We are all commenting at the symptom and not the cause. The cause is the trio of Mahinda Rajapakse, Joint Opposition and SLPP making racial statements during the election campaign. Now that SLPP has won the Nationalists are picking up their weapons. This is a strategy by the trio to keep the fire burning so that the Southern Sinhalese will vote for them in all future elections. Unfortunately President Sirisena is meeting Mahinda in the dark and adding fuel to it. Why won’t the President appoint Sarath Fonseka as the Minister of Law and Order. He has proven his ability as the Commander of the Army winning against LTTE.

    As received (name with held)

    Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters, The one who killed in Teldeniya, ambala is the only breadwinner who is a hard worker works more than 15 hours a day with a lot of responsibilities to look after his parents, Sister and wife, mother is paralyzed and Father is disabled, Sister is Down syndrome, wife is little upset about lost baby. He is the only person who is looking after them.

    Good people from our society in digana have collected around 300,000/- and already given the family and promised to give them One Million and to buy a three wheeler for their needs, whatever we do just think can we give them the caring son, brother and a husband for the entire family???

    Just because of a three wheeler side mirror worth 160/- rupees those drunkards have taken his life. now the entire society in trouble because of their mistake. Please be vigilant about what we do. May Allah give us the understanding and let’s show our good qualities and let’s help this family and the families already going through hardship.

    Jazakallahu Khair.

    I live in kandy and the residencies of digana and balagolla were told to close down their shops and stay at home by the police the night before the attack because they knew it was gonna happen. The police didn’t do anything but let the mob freely parade around the town burning down houses and shops. Once the riot police came there was nothing left to protect or save everything was destroyed and burnt down. People were literally stopping busses and checking for Muslims on it just to attack them. Most of the houses were burnt down and Muslims were hiding in their neighboring Sinhalese houses. Among them were two of my friends whose house was entirely destroyed and burnt down and they had flee the area. The news doesn’t cover everything just because they don’t want to ruffle any feathers. Even with the police curfew some of the shops and a mosque in katugasthota was attacked by a few people last night. Condemning an entire race for the actions of a few has plagued every persons mindset in the world right now. Spread love and peace.
