Anti-Muslim Violence: The Three Stories Of Burnt Pasta!

By JA Sirajul Anam –

JA Sirajul Anam

This is the three sides of the story of Roza Pasta factory that was set fire by racist mobs on 13 May 2019.

Story of Pasta Past

Now everyone knows a mob of 500 have vandalized, destroyed the machineries and set fire to the Diamond – Roza brand pasta production facility in Minuwangoda. The investment to the factory was well over 700 million Sri Lankan rupees. More than 200 were employed in the factory which had different shifts. Out of the work force, more than 75% are innocent, hardworking and peace loving brethren of fellow faiths. Which means more than 200 family’s main source of income was this facility.

Mobs destroy Sri Lanka’s Largest Pasta factory

Some employees had to run for their lives during the mob attack while they were working. It was even sad to note that the Fire Brigade never turned up to dowse the fire citing the Distance to factory from their premises and Waste of Petrol of their vehicles! Such is the pathetic situation of the state machinery.

Story of Pasta Present

As usual, we saw the fire still continuing (14 May 2019 till 11 a.m.) charring the remains of the factory. People in the vicinity and outskirts come with mobile phones and take videos to share in their Social Media. Few channels spent few seconds in their news to show footage in which police giving protection for destroyed goods. As usual, politicians visit the place, media gives wide coverage, each emitting different stories to safe guard their political agendas and interests. Government in its part, promise for compensation as usual while Insurance Agent will try to cut down the payment citing various excuses.

Story of Pasta Future

The owner has not made up his mind to re-establish the factory. The hardworking innocent employees are now jobless. Remember, life is not that easy these days in everyone’s life. There would have been a paralyzed father of an employee who could not go for work and depending on his son’s / daughter’s salary for home expenses. There can be a blind mother who everyday waited for her son / daughter return from the factory after the shift who brings food from a wayside eatery. There can be differently-abled child whose father / mother works at the factory and spend their salary for the well-being of the child. There can be a younger brother or sister who is following VT training course or going for tuition classes whose fees are paid by the earning of their brother or sister employed in the factory. There can be 200 untold stories of these families which me or you can’t simply fathom. Within an hour, the fates of over 200 families were changed into dark and painful by uneducated mob whose only ambition was to destroy the wealth or property of a fellow Muslim brother.

From May 13th, these 200 employees will struggle in their lives for big time till find a decent job. It can be one month or many months which cannot be guaranteed in the present saturated job market. Their whole families will suffer by the carnage of a stupid mob who were encouraged and entertained by Facebook Warriors. These families will curse the mob till the last breath of their lifetime.

Is that all? Being a massive production facility means high need of raw materials which produced, imported and supplied by a local producer / manufacturer and importer. Now, he / she lose their business as well. The owners of Lorries and vans that transported the products to all part of island will not have calls for booking for their vehicles anymore. Down the supply chain, many big or small shops in all part of island earned a profit by selling the pasta products now lose their income. The big-time AD Agency that received the contract on promoting the product will see their contract comes to an abrupt end. TV and Newspapers that featured the Ads of the products now have to keep hand in their heads and wonder how to find new business. Even the 3wheel drivers who took staff to their home after different shifts will not have hires anymore. Plus, no more revenue for the State that came from various taxes.

What is there for Dinner?

This painful and wrecking story of Pasta Future will not be known to others except who lost their livelihood in every angle. This is the total outcome of setting fire or destroying a business entity by enmity towards a fellow faith. The ones who did that will speak among themselves of the greatest adventure game they played live to protect the interests of their community, for a few days and forget it. I don’t know whether they have a decent face to tell this success story to their own children who will be suffering by the carnage in a bleak future which their parents have created.

It is sad some people of this country don’t realize how one stupid action can damage and destroy many people’s lives. Sri Lankan communities are interconnected strongly though they follow different faiths. If any segment keep its hand on the fellow faith to overpower, it will affect the whole Nation, be it coexistence, business, employment, leisure or peace, etc. Hatred and racism will never produce any good outcome. It only makes the divisions even bigger and brings more destruction. That drags to our beloved Nation to the path of peril in front of our eyes. If the religious leaders don’t come forward and guide us, if the educated come out from their deafening silence and speak strongly against racism and hate, our children will suffer more than us. Please note, I never spoke about the political game behind the scene as we all are equally responsible for electing the present rotten 225 gang!

PS: I was nine and half year boy during the 1983 riots. I saw the carnage, arson and pain through my child eyes caused to innocent fellow Tamil brothers and sisters by same type of unruly racist mob. The TV stations Rupavahini and ITN censored the riot of hooligans as same as the present regime and differently interested Media Channels. When SLBC played every time a particular frightening music for breaking news during my adolescent years, our heart beats went to sky to echo in fear. That was the fear we had. I also saw while growing up how the looters and mischief makers ended up dying as beggars and unwanted lot in the society. Karma punishes sooner or later, no matter what faith you belong to!

    Sirajul Anam has succinctly brought to our attention the domino effect resulting from the annihilation of this pasta factory. Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) deputy leader Madumadawa Aravinda says he only happened to be in the vicinity by chance (and not by design) and is now absconding from reporting to the Police for his “statement. So the usual coterie of his cronies like dan priyasad et al were picked up after the riots. Sadly nobody has been prosecuted for the digana or aluthgama riots – yet.

      JA Sirajul Anam,

      “This is the three sides of the story of Roza Pasta factory that was set fire by racist mobs on 13 May 2019.”

      Yes, Para-Sinha;la “Buddhist” racist mobs, aided and abetted by the Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist” politicians. The Security forces just look on., and are participants.

      Not much different from 1958, 1977, 1983, 2009, 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2019.

      Th politicians and the police are bust travelling and attending weddings.

      The only difference is that the excuse or catalyst is the Para-Muslim Wahhabi clones Tauheed Jamat, killed Christian Sri Lankans and other Sri Lankans and tourists, because they follow Satan, per prescient Hadith of Najd, a Satanic Ideology.

      Hadith of Najd

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

      According to two narrations in Sahih Bukhari, Muhammad asks Allah to bless the areas of Bilad al-Sham (Syria) and Yemen. When his companions said “Our Najd as well,” he replied: “There will appear earthquakes and afflictions, and from there will come out the side of the head (e.g. horns) of Satan.”In a similar narration, Muhammad again asked Allah to bless the areas Medina, Mecca, Sham, and Yemen and, when asked specifically to bless Najd, repeated similar comments about there being earthquakes, trials, tribulations, and the horns of Satan

      https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/mother-of-satan-bombs-show-foreign-hand-in-sri-lanka-bombings-investigators/ar-AABFMup

      Islamic State has claimed the Sri Lankan bombers operated as part of its franchise. But Sri Lankan and international investigators are anxious to know just how much outside help went into the attacks that left 258 dead and 500 injured.

      The Tauheed Satanists should have got a Halal Franchise, in stead of a Satanist franchise, aided and abetted by the Wahabi Satanic ideology, followed by ISIS, Iblisic State.

    JA Sirajul Anam,

    RE: Anti-Muslim Violence: The Three Stories Of Burnt Pasta!
    (296words)

    On April 21, 1802 Wahhbis kill 5,000 in Karabala, Iraq.

    On April 21, 2019 Wahhbis-Salafi clones , ISIS, Taudeed Jamat kill 250 in Sri Lanka.

    On May 13, 2019, Para-Sinhala Buddhist mobs destroy factory employing 200 people.

    Because, the Satan Following Wahabbi-Salafies and their clones ISIS, Tauheed Jamat etc, claimed that they are Muslims, and the mainstream Muslins did not challenge the Satanist Wahhabis, now All Muslims are branded as Wahhabies, Satanists and Terrorists.

    This is what happens when Stan prevails. See Hadith of Najd.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

    Wahhabi sack of Karbala
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wahhabi_sack_of_Karbala

    So, the mob of 500 cannot tell a Muslin from a Wahhabi Satanic Terrorist.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/mother-of-satan-bombs-show-foreign-hand-in-sri-lanka-bombings-investigators/ar-AABFMup

    Mother of Satan’ bombs show foreign hand in Sri Lanka bombings: investigators

    One month after the Sri Lanka suicide attacks that killed more than 250 people, investigators have told AFP the bombers used “Mother of Satan” explosives favoured by the Islamic State group that are a new sign of foreign involvement.

    Islamic State has claimed the Sri Lankan bombers operated as part of its franchise. But Sri Lankan and international investigators are anxious to know just how much outside help went into the attacks that left 258 dead and 500 injured.

    The Satanist Wahhabi Salafies were active since 2011, but the authorities did nothing and they attacked the Sufi Muslims, initially.

    Brother I understand your pain as a fellow human being. The last words (karma) may be a solace to you but I believe only justice can bring closure to any victims.Rest are painful hard facts. In Lanka a tragedy is always exploited in causing many. Few days ago I mentioned elsewhere about personally knowing senior Tamil Doctors working in GH Colombo ,who were hunted down during black July and most ended up leaving the country, to start life all over again, from scratches in a foreign land.I am told some patients who benefited from these doctors services, were assisting the mob in identifying the targeted doctors. Lankans are known to cut the arm which provided them treatment, burn the place which provided food and living, vandalize a worship site where they had prayed before and then call the victims as terrorist.As such they are cunning immoral fools fueled on hatred, jealousy,resentment and vengeance. Our scum self serving politicians are working overtime in programming,conditioning and maintaining such insanity.Even after such a tragedy our politicians are busy vying for pole positions.

        It is high time to select one of the NATIVE VEDDAHs to lead this nation.
        :
        Following BP SIrisena s rule, even your dog would be good enough to be the leader of this nation.
        :
        Bro Amarasiri, did you notice that BP Rajaapakshes had balls to visit few schools in Colombo to show that they ve been doing it while ruling govt men do nothing for the sake of rebuilding the moral of the school children who they say ve taken aside being unable to trust security in today s context.
        In the same time, BP Rajaakshes have been encouraging families to take part in TITUTION sessions, let the masters thickening their pockets. This is paradoxal right. ?

          “It is high time to select one of the NATIVE VEDDAHs to lead this nation.”

          Thanks, but no thanks.
          There are only a few honest people left on this land.
          Let them live and die as contented souls.
          The greater trappings of power on good honest people will gradually have very bad influence on them and the system is such they will have no power to put it right.

    Srilankan politicians do not care about the country or the people. Their main aim is to get rich as quickly as possible and unfortunately they have achieved that as evidenced by the money stored by rajapaksas in foreign banks. Mob rule is encouraged by unscrupulous politicians, because that is the only way they can succeed. When the army encourage the looters instead of dispersing them, as we saw the clips of mob in Nattandiya . To add salt to injury the army commander exonerated the soldier, what can you expect when such morons hold high positions.
    You mention of 1983 pogrom, atleast this time it is very much on a lower scale. you wrote “I also saw while growing up how the looters and mischief makers ended up dying as beggars and unwanted lot in the society.” I hope this will happen this time as well.

    Another columnist wrote this the other day,

    When Robert Knox said “the Cingalese are a cunning lot who mistake the low-level cunning they possess to be a high level of Intelligence,” he was not wrong by far.

    Robert Knox wrote this 339 years ago, when you look at the things happening in this country this looks spot on —

      Concenred citizen: Tamils thought the same way. some times,. they say sinhalaya are Modaya. Other tomes, they say FORGETFUL mahavamsa Mindset. One more time they say they lost to Sinhalayas. Robert Knox is in the same group. Sinhala People are dumb but when they want, they out smart you with a very long distance, so can not catch.

    Sirajul anam: Why don’t you ask Rishad Bathiuddin, Mujubar Rahman, Hisbulla, Azath Sally and all other Muslim politician (FOWZIE included) whetherh they did not know that these things would happen when Muslims (include mosques that were keeping so many Swords to clear bushes) blow up 300 INNOCENT PEOPLE AND MAIM 500.Why Only muslims have feelings and Catholics do not have feelings. Muslims were keeping swords in their houses. Explosives were all over the Southern Sri lanka. Do you say muslims did not know anything and they did not expect any after effects of their blowing up. Do you feel guilty about something ?

    Dear JD!

    Your theory is that because Muslims ministers and MPs don’t speak about the (alleged) swords found in few mosques had resulted in 500 or so rowdies of an organised group by motorbikes attacking the factory and bringing financial detriment not only to the factory owner, who happened to be a Muslim, but to the families of 200 or so employees and country’s tax income..

    What sort of parent are you going to be to your innocent children? Your comment about “Karma” is third class. The church goers on 21st April 19 at Easter Sunday lost their lives due to the Karma. And the stupid jihadist who also lost their lives in vain due to Karma. The factory owner and his employees lost their investment and livelihood due to their Karma. So when will the Karma befall on the 500 rowdies who set fire and vandalized factory? Are you not realizing that supporting the immoral things also would bring some sort of Krama effect on you?

      Ahmad Nadvi: You say, whether it is Wahhabis or not, when Muslims killed 300 less people and maimed 500 people and destroyed the income of thousands of people, NO ONE CAN GET ANGRY AND REACT BECAUSE THAT IS AGAINST THE NORMS THAT YOU CONSIDER RIGHT. It is you people blow up and kill all over the world. Why the west says it is GLOBAL TERRORISM.which is only by Muslims. But, you say, none should think about Revenge. I am not approving Revenge. But, I say people can behave like that. Do not expect violence and preparing for violence from you and saintliness from others. You guys were collecting swords every where to slice non-believers in case they respond to your violence.

    Having borne in this country alone is a bad karma. But certainly next it will be heaven, Moksha, nirvana. This is the only holy land where we have regular murderous spree, sponsored by goons and politicians and clergy while the forces watch and rejoice. This is the only holy land where the exclusive duty of clergy is to spread hatred and encourage violence. So we all have to be happy to have borne in this chosen land where we will be condemned to go to heaven in the next birth. Just see how we make a living out of this chaos. This is karma yoga. Had Buddha known this he would have remained as a Hindu. All in vain. But yet he provided plenty of job opportunities. Many years ago I witnessed how Candy Garment factory in kurunegala was burnt by the usual Sinhala simply because the owner was a Tamil yet more90% were Sinhala workers. The day after the same mob were there pleading for money to buy milk for the babalas. It is a never ending curse. I have raked my mind for so long to understand why this behavioural pattern and the obsession for destroying things that really fed them? Is it a blind impulsive behaviour or a mere automatism without any brain control owing to sone form of mental aberration? Despite improvement in knowledge, technology, information technology, awareness, etc., yet the destructive behaviour continues. Saddest part is that more and more clergy getting involved with these marauding mobs of insane goons. Can anyone safe this country. Or is it doomed to perish? Only time will tell.

    Ahmad Nadvi, Immoral people think,do,say and behave immorally. They come from immoral family setting. Immoral families eventually becomes a society, community and a country it self. In Lanka they call this phenomenon as KARMA..

    Dear Chiv!

    Thanks for educating me about immoral people like JD. I don’t understand the so called “SWORD” masala. The same accusation Tamil tigers levelled against the Muslims when tigers chased Muslims out with 24 hours ultimatum.

    (Tamil) Rohan once said that Muslims in Jaffna kept their swords under the beds. My question has always been why they kept under bed and when to use them? Why the Muslims haven’t used those swords when they were chased out from Jaffna or started JIHAD against Tamils or at least slit few Tigers in protest in Jaffna. The same questions I put again to JD and people like him to answer.

    I can’t believe what I am seeing here. It’s been exactly one month since 350 people perished at the hands of a murderous cult, and this man comes here smiling as if he’s high on drugs.

    Truly unbelievable. But at least no deceptive crocodile tears like most of the other writers from that same community.

    Retard Shemale, were you crying in 56, 58, 77, 83, 2009 when innocents were killed? Focus your response to the point. If you don’t have any, just keep away. Just look around and see how many are happy of what happened and how they are already bed wetting thinking of the bright future ahead.
