Anti-Muslim Violence: Sinhalese Should Feel Ashamed; And Speak Out!

By Lakmal Harischandra –

Lakmal Harischandra

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The unfortunate events which followed one after the other, weeks ago, from Ampara to Digana made me wonder how gullible and emotionally charged we Sinhalese become. Those at the grass-root levels still believe that there is truth in the story spread by the so-called Amitha type ‘patriot groups’ that Muslims are conspiring to reduce our numbers through various means; this time Wandha Pethi as was recently seen in Ampara. Then, they tried to raise our emotions in Digana by saying that Muslim businesses are all over and they have to be dealt with, if the Sinhalese have to continue their dominance in this Dharma Dweepa. These are however not flashes in the pan. There were clear signs of meticulous planning to achieve the vicious ends of disgruntled political elements , ably supported by their ‘Jathyalaya’ gangs in the Police and the STF.   Many at the low strata and grass-root levels fell for it and many are languishing in jails while those master planners are having the last laugh. Victory for the Jathyalaya! As we as the majority community always did by silently applauding our ‘boys’ who showed their firepower on other vulnerable communities since 1983. May be, it is what Mahinda Deshpriya meant when he said ‘Most Sinhala people were happy about the anti-Muslim violence. For sure, I wasn’t one of them who applauded. I felt ashamed and infuriated instead!

It was in the aftermath of the Digana violence that Minister Kiriella said in Parliament that Sinhala people should apologize for the anti-Muslim violence and many of our Maha Sangha and some politicos spit fire. Why should we apologize? They screamed!. Well; they were correct for once. Yes! I will not apologize too ; rather I felt very hurt for dragging me to do so on behalf of these barbaric and loot-happy gangs and politically bankrupt elements who are using ‘Jathyaalaya’ and the name of my race to achieve their own ends. I need not. I also felt shameful and would disown them as part of our people. Amithas, Saliyas, Dan Prasads , Ampitiye Sumanes, Gnanassras should not be considered as representing our voice ; to save the Sinhala race. They are a disgrace to our race ; the race which talks proudly of Dutugemunu who dealt in a gentlemanly manner with Elara and the people who subscribe to the peaceful teachings of Buddha; not the Sinhala Buddhism which grew out of the Mahawamsa mentality.

I for once, now understand how the Muslims all over the world felt and empathize with them when they were asked to assume collective guilt when ISIS and Al Qaeda were terrorising and killing in cold blood, innocent people in the name of their religion. When they said then that they  need not apologize for the acts of those barbarians who killed in the name of Islam, for they did not belong to their faith , I then did not understand what they meant . They virtually disowned them quite rightly for ISIS did not represent the majority of Muslims . Now, I know what they meant  and in the same manner and tone, I also join the majority of my people to say: Hey the ‘Jathyalaya gangs! You do not speak in our name. You do not speak for us though  you sport Sinhala names’. Let us therefore awaken from our slumber and say ‘enough is enough’ and yell at them ‘Stop claiming you represent us: We do not want Sinhala Bin ladens like you to speak for us!’ True! many of our monks and intellectuals spoke against this mayhem which wreaked havoc on our brotherly  Community-the Muslims, who have been living amongst us peacefully without any invading intentions for centuries. But the silence of our majority community at the grass-root levels gave impetus to these vile elements to do what they did and they will continue to do so and tarnish our image if we maintain our silence, although we did not follow their lead in our areas.

When will we learn lessons? Who can forget the fact that all community leaders voted together leaving their communal interests aside for a moment when the Independence vote came up. I remember the patriotic words of TB Jayah and Muslim leaders for example and the words of gratitude of DSS and SWRD for having voted for Independence going beyond their communal interests. Ever since then, the political parties have carried a well-planned strategy to gain Sinhala votes by raising emotional base instincts based on the survival of their race. After 70 long years since Independence, where are we as a nation? Are we not on the verge of becoming a failed state? It makes me think that it was rather British who got Independence from a moronic lot we subsequently proved ourselves to be; not the other way around, looking at the mess we have put ourselves to be by subscribing to a majoritarian model of government through our majority vote .It was in 1956 , when our  people neatly fell for the political gundu  of  SWRD and  voted for a Ceylon where Sinhala Buddhist supremacy was institutionalized. Sinhala Only made things worse for the majority Sinhala people while SWRD’s children went overseas for higher education. What political hypocrisy? Two years later,Ceylon witnessed the first ever anti Tamil riots and SWRD finally felt a victim to his own dose of medicine when he was assassinated by a Buddhist monk in 1959. Then, many agreements with the Tamil leaders fell through, giving way to pressure from rogue sections of the Maha Sangha which led the way to the disgusting anti-Tamil violence in July 1983, which made an indelible black mark on the Sinhala people. 

In 1983, when Cyril Mathew ( is it a Sinhala name or a borrowed one? For a start)  and his rowdy gangs killed, looted and set fire in the name of  our Sinhala race,  the ‘Sinhala government’ and the Sinhala people showed apathy and reluctance to publicly disown them although many of us helped the innocent Tamil brethren who became the targets of these racist groups. For 30 more years, the image of the Sinhala people  were ripped apart in international forums as murderers, and supremacists who made the country  a hell hole for the minorities .  Yes! LTTE was ruthless and the Tamil leaders were short-sighted and cunning as well. But it is left for the majority  community to  show political maturity and long vision and treat all citizens alike and make other communities feel like such.  Our Sinhala leaders throughout history on the other hand were only furthering their own nests, giving two hoots for the long term interests of the country. In the process, all communities suffered; including the Sinhalese as well. They have not got a good deal from these corrupt politicians either.      

As some blogger said, ‘The War did not stop; it was only a brief stop over’. When Mahinda Rajapakse announced that he will consider all communities alike as equals; I for once believed him as a visionary leader. He did a volte face for selfish reasons, and tried to project himself as a champion of our race without being the Head of State. We Sinhalese once again fell for this gimmick . Many catspaws  emerged in the form of hate gangs which began targeting and attacking the next biggest minority community- the Muslims. It became a virtual hell hole for the Muslims creating a climate of fear and insecurity. When Gnanasara Thero – the ruffian monk in robes ultimately announced in Aluthgama in 2014 that this country is Sinhala, the army is Sinhala and Police is Sinhala and it is abasaranai to all other communities, those at the Sinhala grass-root levels silently nodded their heads in approval , falling a victim once again to the machinations of the political forces who wanted to make racism their way to power. Aluthgama 2014 thus became another PR disaster for Sri Lanka at the  international level and another black mark for the Sinhala people .

Now, another government comes to power in 2015 giving another set of promises and the many ministers who were in MR cabinet switched their seats. We have Champika who earlier led us to believe that Gnanasara was correct in his outbursts against Muslims and many Muslim ministers who also promoted Muslim enclaves in the East sat with the new champion –Sirisena. Though we Sinhalese voted out Gnanasara gangs in the election, we continued to be led by wolves in sheep (Yahapalana) clothing  and therefore the same hate gangs under different names continued their anti-Muslim hate  campaign, with help from ‘Sinhala leaders’ and Sinhala Police and Sinhala STF ( although the Head of STF is a Muslim. In fact , there was a Tamil IGP too during 1083 riots!). From Gintota to Digana, these hate groups were given a free hand to kill, loot and set fire as they did in 1983. The law enforcement and government moved in later after the horses have bolted and helped themselves ( there were charges of connivance too). The Dharma Dweepa once again was branded as  a pariah state on international bill boards. Minister Mustafa in a ‘tongue in cheek’ way announces that this is only a rule of law issue and not a racist issue. It certainly is Minister Mustafa! if you care to look with interest at the developments and trends since 1948! As is known you are part of that political opportunistic class which has brought immense harm to our country. We remember how during the last government you tried to assume ignorance of the destructive role played by the BBS!

It is therefore high-time that the intellectuals among the Sinhala community assume leadership abdicated by the political leadership ( I think this applies to other communities too- Tamils and Muslims) and begin a process of self-reflection and post mortem to identify ways and means of recovering back the good image of Sri Lanka in general and Sinhala people in particular. There should be a conscious process of education to be undertaken at the grass root levels to lay bare the diabolical racist machinations of the politically disgruntled class to keep themselves in power and loot the resources of this country, and inculcate in our people specially the younger ones the imperative need to live and let live other brethren communities in a spirit of brotherhood and mutual understanding. Our young generation should be taught that hate is taught to them by destructive elements to gain power and that hate begets hate and that there is much happiness and success in mutuality.

Our grass-root level people should be encouraged to undertake joint projects which will promote mutual understanding and common good. What Mr. Mohamed did to bring together people of all races to buy a EPT scan machine for the cancer hospital was really inspiring. This is the way forward! This can only become a reality if the Maha Sangha gives their blessings and be involved. Unless pressure is applied by the intellectuals and progressive sections of the Maha Sangha together, on the narrow minded corrupt political class to think Sri Lankan and not use the Sinhala race to achieve their ends , the latter will continue to take Sri Lanka up the blind garden path to a point of no return. Sinhalese people are by nature a tolerant race and the narrow political and hate elements among them should therefore no longer be allowed to use their name and play games with the prestige of the Sinhalese race which has more than 2500 years of history. Other communities should be made to feel at home ,safe and secure at a challenging point of time where they are feeling alienated due to the actions of  (still) fringe elements among the Sinhala people. Sinhala people should as a community come out of their silent hibernation and speak out . Otherwise, there are signs emerging that the disgruntled elements among the Muslims too will respond back in ways which may not be peaceful, like how the Tamil youth did earlier.  This sordid state of affairs will make Sri Lanka another Somalia where different war lords will rule with a puppet government in power like we have at the moment.

      RE: Anti-Muslim Violence: Sinhalese Should Feel Ashamed; And Speak Out!

      (298 Words)

      “The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

      Thanks. Yes. Why?

      “The unfortunate events which followed one after the other, weeks ago, from Ampara to Digana…….; this time Wandha Pethi as was recently seen in Amparai”

      Yes, why? Didn’t the Para-Sinhala drink “Wada Kaha” sulphur(sulfur) during the total solar eclipse in the 1950s?

      However, there are some difficulties.

      1. The mean IQ of the Sinhala, more correctly Para-Sinhala, that comprises Para-Sinhala Buddhists and Para-Sinhala Christians, as well as mean IQ of the Para-Muslims and Para-Tamils is 79.

      National IQ Scores – Country Rankings

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

      This low mean IQ makes it quite difficult to clarify things, because they do not comprehend and understand, cannot think rationally because of brainwashing from birth.

      2. When a baby is born in Sri Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, the child is bought up as a Para-Sinhala Buddhist, and brainwashed in Mahawamsa, in Sinhala-“Buddhism ” and Sinhala Racism by the parents and the community, as to rebirth and other beliefs. The Para-Tamil Hindus/Christians and Para-Muslims have their own version of brainwashing and racism and castism , soul, and life after death.

      The Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” do not want to admit that they are Paras ( Para-deshis, foreigners) in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, despite overwhelming evidence,

      https://www.nature.com/articles/jhg2013112

      Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

        Not only Sinhalese, everyone should feel ashamed, and speak out. Muslims must feel ashamed about killing of Tamils and appropriating their lands, destroying ancient Buddhist monuments and chasing Sinhala traders away in eastern province. Will Muslims ever speak out about these atrocities, other than defending culprits.

    There is no question there is a islamophobic wave going across the country. We have been living with Muslims for ceturies before we get taught by White man about islam. Sinhalese should remember that. Therefore they should think twice before buying anti islamic propaganda and fear mongering. At the same time we have to dig deeper into Norwegian connection with Islamophobia in SL

      Unless , all Buddha Kaavi Rowdies and Racist wearing ‘kaavi redhda’ wiped out from Budhist Temples and banned from entering Politics , there will be No Peace in Sri Lanka.
      We have been seen and experiencing this Kaavi Bombast Racism since 1915.
      Thus the PM Bandaranayake, was assassinated by a so called Budhdist Bikku who emerged from Budhsit Temple so that the world came to know that the Budhist temples-Vihara are producing Murderers and Racists like Viradhu Terrorist and his Golaya Galagodaya..

        a small minority of impetuous Sinhalese Buddhists who are hostile to Muslims, promulgate grievances and allegations against Muslims and are pursuing an intolerable campaign of violence against Muslims. As a partial means of eradicating this terror precipitated upon vulnerable Muslim communities in Sri Lanka, the allegations against Muslims, whether serious or trivial should be investigated by a committee or commission with participation of representatives of both communities. Thereby canards can be dispelled, and real problems between Sinhalese Buddhists and Muslims can be mediated. All the more important is the perpetrators of communal crimes, of any ethnicity are brought to justice, and justice dispensed in spirit of the law. There is a consensus that the perpetrators and instigators of violent crimes in this ethnic conflict should be brought to justice. These two measures of reconciliation and rule of law should bring an end to the heinous behaviour that is destabilising law and order, morale and fabric of the society.

      I don’t like anyone who try to put the blame on someone else. Sri Lanka is a highly educated country in compared to many western countries. don’t we have our own brain to know what is good and what is bad? We always talk about our civilization. Buddhism is one of the world best to understand what is good and bad. It is our politicians, and religious leaders who speak and act violently against minorities. This is happening only since 1948. This is not limited to islamists alone but it is also against other religious people, and other races as well. Unless you take responsibility for your mistakes this will continue until some other forces beat you.

        I totally agree to your comment made.but do we really have to wait until some other force beat you.why should we allow to create another force whem we have our own remedy by making a voice and protesting against all elements who take law to their hands and even voice against the politicians who support such rogues.as a frequent traveller I have experienced such bad comments as a sri lankan.our race and religion comes second.

      When the mean IQ is low, 79, and stupidity is quite high, and you throw racism and religion onto the mix, you do have an explosive mix.

      For some Sri Lankans, stupidity is a virtue.

    Hats off to you Lakmal for this excellent article which brings out the true uncorrupted moral characteristics of the Sinhala people. Every sentence you have written is full of wisdom that displays a maturity far ahead of your apparent age. As a Muslim, when I read it I felt vindicated to continue to harbour hope for the restoration of peace and goodwill in this unfortunate country. I hope young people like you will overcome all those nefarious characters among the majority community to lead the nation to what it deserves to be. Young people of your calibre are the hope of my country.

    Mr. Harischandra,
    I do not know in which part of the world you live. Go to Eastern Province and talk to Sinhalayo to find out what these Wahabis are doing to them. Large number of Sinhalayo who lived in the Eastern Province were chased out by LTTE rascals. All the land and property belonged to them were grabbed by Muslims and with the support of Government Officials they have made forged deeds for those properties. Neither the previous Government nor this Government done a damn thing to help the Sinhalayo who lost property. Eravur is a very good example. Before LTTE menace came almost all the business in Eravur was in the hands of Sinhalayo but now it is entirely a Muslim town.
    For your information, troubles in Aluthgama and Kandy were started by Muslims but everyone is putting the blame on Sinhalayo. Even the Sinhala-Muslim clash in 1915 was started by Muslims and British ‘Awajathakayo’ massacred Sinhalayo saying that it was an anti-British riot. Same thing in 2018. Muslims started the clash but only Sinhalayo were arrested. Even two school boys were arrested for forwarding emails. The fault lies with stupid Sinhala politicians. They pamper Muslim politicians to get their support. Sinhalayo are paying the price for the blunder committed by King Senerath.

      Dear Eagle Eye,
      I never seen a FOOL such as yourself. Who told you “business in Eravur was in the hands of Sinhalayo” before LTTE. I am from Batticaloa, so that I know what kind of lies you are trying to sell through this comment. There were few Sinhala business, not only in Eravur, even in other parts of Batticalo region during pre-LTTE era. That dose’t mean they were in huge numbers. Unfortunately, the conflict made them to relocate under LTTE’s carnage. If you are claiming Muslims grabbed their land and property through forged deeds, don’t you think the original owners can now reclaim it through legal means by producing the history of their ownership. As you claim if Muslims changed the recorded with the “support of Government Officials, do you think the land registers maintained in the department are just a few A4 sheet? anybody can replace the papers? Don’t show your foolishness in public. First learn how land register is functioning and what kind of protection is in-build in to that to prevent such crimes. Do think the so called Government Officials worked in land department during this time are all Muslims? Even 1% of the total staff at land department were Muslims. Do you know the nasty fight existed between Tamils and Muslims in those days due to Muslims stand of supporting Government efforts to eradicate terrorism ? under such condition will the Tamil officials at the land department cooperated with Muslims to forge the land register? Do you kind LTTE was claiming at that time the entire North and East were Tamil’s traditional lands and those are only belongs to Eallam and made its best efforts to eradicate Muslims from those places? I want to remind you the LTTE’s killing of Muslims in both Kattankudy and Eravur for this purpose.

        Let us also not forget how Muslims home guards and militias in the east who were heavily armed by very same STF , who are now accused of attacking Muslims in the central province , were very busy killing raping and ethnically cleansing thousands of Tamils in the east burning and looting their homes and businesses and destroying Hindu temples . The carnage and cruelty that they inflicted on their fellow non Muslim Tamil speakers even shocked the Sri Lankan armed forces and many Sinhalese army officers had to put a stop to this. It was only after this that LTTE started attacking Muslims and what they did was nothing . If you are from Batticaloa you should know this to but like all Muslims very silent. The east is the land of the Tamils and the Tamailised Hindu Vedda . All ancient history rulers of the east were all Tamil Hindus and other than a few border villages every place name , names of rivers hills etc in the east were all Tamil. Just go and look at the map of the east in 1948. Tamils were the majority in all three districts in the east. The arrival of the Muslims in the east just a few centuries , They came as refugees fleeing Portuguese persecution on the western coast and later Sinhalese persecution on the central coasts. The Sinhalese only arrived in the east in the last 6o years , a large number of them in past 30 years. As a result of state sponsored colonisation schemes on ethnically cleansed Tamil lands. If you are from Batticaloa you should know this too,. Historically it was the Tamils who owned lands in the east, as they are the real owners of the east and Muslims had to lease it from them .

          Dear Real SIva Sankaran Sharma,
          Let me correct your wild lies. Yes… Muslims formed home-guard units with the assistance of Sri Lanka government. That is only for protecting their towns, lives, properties and safe travel. They did’t attacked any Tamils unnecessary. if there were any attack on Tamils, it was only as retaliation to LTTE’s or other Tamil armed group’s attack on Muslims or their towns. That was the only way available at that time to control heavily armed ruthless Tamil armed groups. Because, Tamils know well, if LTTE or other Tamil group harmed Muslims in their town, definitely there will be retaliation against those towns, so that they forced their terror groups to stop attacking Muslims from hiding in their places. Not only Sri Lanka army and STF, even IPKF too used the same strategy to maintain east relatively under control, unlike the North. What I mentioned above were during a nasty conflict time, against some of the world’s ruthless terrorism period. As you claimed Muslims were engaged in mass murder and rape, rather than making general statements, please mentioned the exact incidents and how many Tamils were killed and raped in each incidents. You must provide some evidence or reference for such case, because all incidents against Tamils, even if a single person was harmed by army or others, that was formally recorded by the “Citizen Groups” primary headed by some reputed social works and church leadership. Those records were reported to many local and foreign NGO operated in in East suchs as ICRC, Oxfam, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) as wells at Police too. You know very well rape was not used by Muslims as a punishment, because it is not allowed in Islam even during war. About your claim of “Tamils are the sole owners of land in East”, I don’t want to spend my time to reply for such a child’s claim. Thank you.

            One word nonsense. This is why they are still using force Gulf Arab money Wahhabi terrorism and crooked politics to forcibly steal Tamil lands and destroy Hindu temples to create an Islamic homeland. You do not want spend time , as you know that Muslims really do not have a claim to the east and now the Sinhalese and even the Indians who egged the Muslims to deny their Tamil heritage and Arabise themselves , in order to create a rift between the Tamils and the Tamil Muslims have now realised that they have created a monster and woken up to your tricks

              Dear Real Siva Sankaran Sharma,
              Please remember that we as Sri Lankans already defeated the “Tamil’s homeland” claim of any part of Sri Lanka at Nandikadal on 18 May 2009. You know very well, what was the cost Tamils paid for this false claim. If such ideas are still in your mind, kindly, at least by now you need to erase those from your mind. As a country trying to rebuild from a three decades of conflicts, we have many challenges to overcome. In my opinion, when the outlook of Sri Lanka’s economic and social developments was in an extremely high level in the late 70s, India (or Indira Gandhi administration) used emotional foolishness of Tamils as their means to obstruct Sri Lanka’s development and succeed. Now while we are trying again to rebuild the country, they are one more time trying their old trick to destroy the dreams of Sri Lankans using Sinhala Buddhist nationalism. We have two options now. Either we can leave all what happened in the past to a side as history and unit as Sri Lankans to rebuild this nation to make a better future for our next generation or as you are writing, based on wild lies continue to argue with each other and create a hell for next generation. The choice is yours. Thank you.

                Only thing false is you. Converted fake Arab Dravidian immigrant refugee whose ancestors got kicked out of from South India. The Tamil claim for self determination of their ancient lands in the north and east is not false or illegal , as they have proven history of living in these lands from ancient times and ruling them until European colonisation. The Portuguese and the Dutch recognised this and ruled the Tamil north and east as a separate colony. Even the British recognised this despite merging their lands with the Sinhalese lands down south in 1833 to create a colony called Ceylon. The Indians recognised this and even successive Sri Lankan governments recognised this and signed treaties. They may not have honoured them. If the British had left the island as part of the Madras presidency and had not created a new colony, then you mean Sinhalese claim for self determination is illegal. Do not post nonsense.. Just because Sinhalese are now illegally Sinhalese settlers to the north and east of Muslims who came begging for refuge to the east a few centuries ago are now trying to make false claims to the east, does not negate the Tamil claim. Go and read the UN charter. Scotland was merged with England three centuries ago but still does not negate Scotland’s claim for self determination. The Tamils have more right for self determination in their lands than the Arab Palestinian in theirs . However you will support their claim but try your best to destroy your own Tamil ethnicity and language. This is why we do not trust you backstabbers

            Mahir just ignore this Australoid crow RSSS. When a subject about Muslims appear in CT he is always there cawing with fabricated lies. Look at his lies that ancient eastern rulers were Tamil Hindus and Muslims came as refugees fleeing Portuguese. Muslims went everywhere as traders but most of the eastern province 70% uninhabited except for Tamil Kallathonis encroaching. It was Prime Minister Senanayake who colonized those places with Muslims. First he offered to Sinhalese but these bums never went except for handful of people. He was a man of far sight. He knew if these places were not settled sea of kallathonis will encroach and will be colonized up to Matara. Within this 20-30 years only Sinhalese moved there. Enanayake’s far sight also gave strategic advantage to the military during the war. History tells 70% of present Tamils were descendants from the Tamils brought by Dutch.

          Sharma,

          The Muslim home guards were created only after the Muslims came under attack from the LTTE. Furthermore not only there were Muslim and Sinhalese home guards but there were Tamil groups who were against LTTE who were helping the Sri Lankan forces. If you wnat to blame, blame everybody who brought misery to Tamils rather than being selective.

            No they were not. in 1985 at the request of racist anti Tamil JR Jayawardene , South Indian Tamil Muslims minister whose family originated from Nagoor Tamil Nadu , sent thousands of Muslim criminals and thugs to Kalmunai in the east to attack Tamils and create the first conflict between the Tamils and the Tamil Muslims in the east and then the STF started to arm Muslim militias and home guards. It was then the LTTE started to attack the Muslims , after they started to attack Tamil Hindu villages in the east very brutally killing raping and ethnically cleansing thousands of indigenous Hindu Tamils and Tamilised Vedda Hindus.

          Dear Eagal Eye,
          If your relative was deprived of his/her legally entitled property, ask him/her to take the evidence and have a Satyagraha in front of Dalada Maligawa till concerned authorities deliver just and fair solution to his problem. I think by this he can get all highest level Sinhalese leaders as well as top government officials to attention to solve his problem.
          Regarding the claim of “Muslims bribe Sinhala and Tamil officials”, if its true, why are you blaming only Muslims? How the bribe taking Sinhalese and Tamils become saints in your opinion? If those Sinhalese and Tamils not take bribe how Muslims can bribe them? Who is the biggest traitors here?… the Sinhalese and Tamils officials those who earning government salary for safeguarding the interest of government and ensure the rules and regulations of the country or the ordinary citizen (may a Muslim) who bribed those officials? As per your claim, if any injustice caused to a Sinhalese in Eravur through bribing Sinhalese and Tamils officials … don’t you think it was done not only by the Muslims, but also the Sinhalese and Tamils collaborated for it? Thank you for giving me an opportunity to clarify your comment.

    A good article. Touches the Muslim’s feelings. Sinhalese community and leaders, monks should come out and show their disapproval and anger. Some time when I look at their statement wonder do the support this act or oppose it. Sate of denial or shaping techniques is not going to help.

      Yes. The Sinhala must admit that they have a racism problem, stemming from Mahawamsa lies and imaginations, and based on genetic that they are Paras from India.

      It is like getting as drunk get to admit that the drunk has an alcohol problem, so that he can be cured,

      Similarly, the Sinhala must be told that they are Para,. and they do have a racism problem, that is a psychological disease.

      Looks like Buddhism has not cured this disease.

      Recently I saw a video clip by a Muslim person that as high as 35% of Muslims in Sri Lanka are engaged in some form of criminal activity. I do not understand why there is a need to unleash violence on Muslims when there is a legal way to control them. For that the problem are the Sinhala politicians who do not want to antagonise Muslim voters, and corrupt state officials who do not enforce law to nab them. This is why ordinary Sinhalese are taking the law into their hands. When Sri Lankan Muslims are getting caught for drug trafficking and money smuggling in foreign countries, there is something fishy why none of them have been brought to justice in Sri Lanka.

      Leslie,

      If you had read newspapers recently you would have found that several drug dealers were caught and most of them were Sinhalese. Yes Muslims too have been arrested. It Could be possible that the anti Muslim campaign is carried out by Sinhalese drug Lords to destroy Muslim Drug Lords., and Sinhalese businessmen against Muslim businesses.

      “Culture” – What culture are you talking about? The supposed mastermind of Teldeniya wears fashionable western cloths, Majority of Sinhalese wear western attire, In a recent video the blood clan is threatening Muslims in Singlish, In many of the websites the comments are in Sudda Sinhala, and the best of all the anti Muslim monks speak in the best of Sinhala literature.

      These are the people who are protecting the Sinhala Buddhist Culture. If these are the representatives then there are glory days ahead for Sinhala Buddhist Culture.

    Lakmal, good to see we still have some good Sinhalese left in this country like you, but unfortunately the damage done is irreversible. It’s sad to see even the school going children’s minds are also poisoned.

    Just as the Afghanistan people cannot live without a war, the Sinhalese can’t live without being envious destroying others properties and livelihood

    As for the Muslims, they are searching for a Prabhakaran in their community to come along and give them the leadership, and when that happens, we are looking at another 50 years of misery and destruction

    This is going to happen sooner or later, of course the Muslims will suffer immensely, but then rest will also suffer to some degree, and for the country, it’s good bye Sri Lanka

      Muslims are searching for a Prabhakaran – what a joke, when Muslims are mortally scared of Sinhalese. Did you hear that army is going to set up a camp in Earvur and have commissioned lands belonging to Muslims, for which there is opposition from Muslims. Why should there be a new camp in a Muslim majority town, if not to put down any attempt by Muslims to take up arms against the state. Sinhalese are very good at divide and rule and will not hesitate to control Muslims using Tamil militia. There is news in an Indian news paper that Kerala Muslims who wanted to join ISIS instead of flying straight to Syria, were on transit through Colombo, where they were put up in Muslim safe houses till they board a flight. With intelligence reports like this coming out, it is only empty rhetoric of Muslims about armed movement.

        Dear Al-faqurlah,
        Which intelligence reports that you are talking about? If such an intelligence report available why the Indian authorities not share it with Sri Lankan authorities and raided the safe house or arrest the people own those houses, instead of supply such vital information to one particular news agent in Kerala?
        As you claim, “Sinhalese may be very good at divide and rule and will not hesitate to control Muslims using Tamil militia”. But I am wondering, from where they learned this? May be from the teachings of their religion? Don’t bring disgrace to your community by uttering nonsense.

      Concerned Citizen,

        Eagle Eye,

        Arrogance is the path of destruction. Sinhalese arrogance paved the way for Prabhakaran. Prabhakarans arrogance led to his destruction. MR’s arrogance led to his defeat.

        When Prabha was alive the Sinhalese were behaving like pussycats. Now Prabha is gone once again the Sinhalese are behaving like the savage lions.

        Your arrogance one day will come to bite you as it has done in the past.

          Yes arrogance is the path to defeat, and will apply to Muslims also. Crowing about that they control Sri Lanka economy helped by funding from Muslim countries, and that they control eastern province after murder and ethnic cleansing of Tamils, is the reason for the beginning of the downfall of Muslims as evidenced by current attacks on Muslims. Very soon Islamic hold on economy of Sri Lanka and majority status in eastern province will be neutralised. Sinhalese have woken up to these dastardly claims achieved by deceit and will show Muslims where to get off.

            Selective amnesia. I did not refer to Ranil or Rajapaksa. I was referring to today’s Lion Bloods who did not want to join the army to fight the LTTE.

            Once again let me remind you that first the 9/11 created difficulties for LTTE in their fund raising, Some believe that LTTE lost a large number of its cadres in the Tsunami and most importantly the defection of Karuna was the biggest blow to LTTE.

            When Karuna was being hunted by LTTE it was a Muslim who secretly brought Karuna to Colombo. The LTTE bombed this Muslims Family where several died including my classmate.

            The war against LTTE wouldn’t have been won without Karuna who most probably would have given a lot of information and secrets including supporting the army to defeat the LTTE.As I remember Ranil was the prime minister when Karuna arrived Colombo.

            So dont white wash the efforts of others including efforts of past presidents good or bad who were instrumental for the final defeat of the LTTE.

This will have a BIG impact on Srilanaka economy if the minorities start a propaganda to stop offshore money coming into Srilanka it could cripple the economy further. What We need at the moment is a patriotic leader who will take the country forward. Stop these thugs taking over Srilanka to make it MafiaLanka.

    It would have been better for business people, academics, celebrities, and leaders, of the Sinhala community, to speak out forcefully, and independently against the violence, and condemned the violence. These racist thugs should have been made to feel they were doing the wrong thing, and that the majority in the Sinhala community do not agree to the violence, looting, and terrorizing, in fact are shamed of it.

    If you apply the same logic, then Tamils should be ashamed and force to speak out for brutality of LTTE and Muslims should be ashamed and forced to speak out for brutality of ISIS. What kind of a stupid, twisted and a contrived argument is that? LTTE, ISIS are organizations that acts on their own interests and are not representative of an entire race or a religion. So are BBS, Sinhaley etc. Why do posh liberals of Colombo apply their liberal playbook so selectively? Clearly it’s wrong to attack or dehumanize Muslims or any ethnic/religious group for that matter, but do all sinhalese have to be ashamed of it and be forced to speak out? No.

      who says IS IS are Muslims. They kill Muslims. bomb mosques and all what they do is against the Muslims. They never attack a single jew or Israel who are arch enemies of Muslims. Its been proven on numerous occasions or rather caught with pants down that IS IS is American production with the direction of Israel.
      once we saw photos where Isis members pray as Muslims to show the world they were Muslims in different directions where as Muslims pray at one direction
      there were photos of killed Isis members with tattoos of crosses
      Abu Baker bagdadee was seen with the top officials of the American Government.
      There were photos where the Isis members wearing shoes worn by the Israel Army
      in between there can be few with Muslim names but all in all they are Jews.
      by the way what if a Muslim disguise as a Buddhist kill a person ? Will he become a Buddhist. use your logics.
      if Isis are Muslims, their first target should be Israel no.
      It is the same way BBS made a huge cry saying there is jihad movement in Sri Lanka. where were they during attack by the buddhist terrorists in Aluthgama Gintota Ampara and Digana. what is the purpose of the sword that is not useful at a battle

    A very nice article by Lakmal Harischandra. We need more from the Educated Sinhala Public and Professional Groups. But, sadly, we Don’t see much from them. For example, the GMOA has so far NOT issued any statement on the Wandha Pethi which is Perfectly within its Domain and which would have had a lot of impact. But the GMOA goes loud with Economic matters voicing its strong Objections to the Indo-Sri Lanka Economic and Technical Cooperation Agreement (ETCA).

    There also seems to be a Deafening Silence from other Professional Organisations who should know where the Pre-planned attacks on the Muslims will lead the country to. Do they want another 30 year war? Wouldn’t their voices be heard and taken seriously by the Authorities? .

    The only reason the Nandikadal happened is because India decided so, if you think by this the Tamil problem is solved you are sadly mistaken , with Sri lanka aligning with China, India can create another Prabakran anytime, and it will take another 30 years to end it.

    Unlike the arms struggle with the tamils, when the problems with the muslims start, the impact will be two fold and will be unbearable on the economy; no more migrant income, trade embargo on tea exports, and most importantly as Dr DJ mentioned in one of the articles in CT, without the support of the OIC muslim block, SL will never be able to pass any resolution on their favour, hence as far as the country is concerned a muslim problem will be a disaster plus plus, only the Gullible Sinhalese don’t realise this, by the time they realise it will be too late as usual.

    The biggest blunder was not committed by king Senarath, but rather the natives of this country allowing the bengali kallathoni vijay and his bandits to settle down here, if this didn’t happen, today we will not any of this problem, all they did from then to now is destroying this beautiful island, as far as Senarath was concerned, he didn’t have a choice allowing the other Para’s to settle down in Sri lanka because he himself was a bengali Para.

    Lakmal,

    Excellent article. It is my opinion that the biggest mistake was introducing Sinhala only. It was done for political reasons and shortsightedness rather than a long term vision for the country.

    As you mention the people including JR, SWRD and Srimavo introduced Sinhala only for the rest but sent their children abroad to study in English and French. The Sinhalese at that time did not question this anomaly as they were puffed up with pride of being Superior to minorities. This created the division among the communities creating disadvantages to the minorities.

    But the biggest loser of Sinhala Only policy has been the Sinhalese themselves. Due to this policy the education quality suffered as the education provided was outdated, These low quality graduates were filled into government sector, creating institutions and corporations without an economic purpose but to fill with jobs. Invariably creating a ratio of 1 public servant for 10 citizens. Furthermore as the government became the only channel which would provide information to public they ended as sheep which could be manipulated by guard dogs.

    Even today there is a huge demand for English as Sinhalese youth are aware that there are more opportunities for people with English knowledge. The proof can be seen everywhere tuition is provided for English.

    The situation can be salvaged if a strong government re-introduces English as the language of business and emphasizes a bilingual policy of English and respective mother tongues.

    Thanks to Lakmal Harischandra for the views expressed with sincerity.
    The psychology of crowd behavior has been researched and the conclusion is that mobs are easily provoked into irrational actions – the Nazis is an extreme example. Provocateurs often use the psychology for their own ends.
    Unruly crowds are controllable as well. Indonesia was able to bridle fundamentalists – not for esoteric reasons but the crowd behaviour started to affect the pockets of the elite.
    Above harangues aside, the recent violence against Muslims is really a challenge to the GoSL “Can you control this?”. We have a turf-control-war.
    Lakmal: It is unfair to blame a sector of the population for the selfish actions of a few.

    To the author and the Muslims brothers who jump in to this scapegoating bandwagon;
    Are the Muslims world over responsible and ashamed of butchery of ISIS? Should the Muslims apologize for ISIS atrocities?
    Should the Tamils be ashamed of and responsible for the atrocities of LTTE?
    Is it fair to hold a whole race/religion responsible for the actions of 0.001% of their kind?
    This is a dangerous idea and should not be propagated as this kind of thinking will only divide, not unite.

      Are you serious in asking Muslims to apologise for any crimes committed by fellow Muslims. This sense of confession and repentance is not heard from them, who follow Koranic teaching which asks them to kill non believers and destroy their properties. They say that any crime committed on non-Muslims is considered to have been done in the name of Islam and will be pardoned by Allah. Even after killing one million Christian Armenians, Muslim Turkey is refusing to apologise. So forget it my friend.

          Do not get angry for telling the truth. I have read Koran several times. As a Muslim you will obviously defend Koran.
