Attacks On Helpless & Voiceless Muslims During Curfew

By Latheef Farook

Organized violence against helpless and voiceless Muslims: Maithri-Ranil failed to prevent it

Senseless and shameful organised racist violence against voiceless and helpless Muslims in the island had shown that Maithri- Ranil continued Mahinda- Gota’s racist violence against the Muslims who pay the price for voting the two to power.

The entire episode of Easter Sunday bombings and killings have become a calculated conspiracy against the Muslim community.

For example to begin with President Sirisena, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and the government intelligence agents failed to prevent the tragedy despite repeated prior warnings from powerful sources. The question is WHY? Certainly this can’t be an oversight. That means they allowed that to happen, perhaps, to put the Christians against Muslims to suit their western friends’ agenda against innocent Muslims.

In any other country president Sirisena and Prime Minister Wickremesinghe would have resigned accepting responsibility for the carnage. However here the two failed to do so showing the rapid decline of moral values.

Handful of those who committed the Easter Sunday carnage had Muslim names and the community had nothing to do with them or their crime.

However in the wake of this tragedy the mainstream media unleashed a full scale campaign demonizing Islam and describing the entire Muslim community as terrorists. This campaign which could be described as “Media Terrorism” went on in full force for three long weeks during which the security forces emptied Muslims houses of even kitchen knives under search operations during emergence rule and curfew.

This happened despite Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith repeatedly stating that this carnage was done not by the Muslim community but by handful of youths used by international forces. The local media which has sold itself to US-European-Israeli war mongers’ refused to raise the issue of foreign involvement

This disgusting media terrorism built up hatred and pitted Sinhalese against Muslim community.

Once that was completed on Monday May 13 very well organized groups began attacking Muslim own property causing tremendous damage destroying Muslims economy which has been Sinhala racists main target.

However Muslims felt a bit relieved when the Army Chief Mahesh Senanayake said that a nation-wide curfew was declared and the military is prepared to use maximum force against groups of nationalist rioters who are attacking Muslims.

This assurance disappeared in the thin air when organized thugs  began attacking and burning  mosques, houses, business establishments, vehicles and whatever owned by Muslims. Multi-millionaire businessmen were turned into within hours.

These attacks and destruction continued under the watchful eyes of the forces which refused even to fire a shot in the air.  It started from Chilaw before spreading to Gampaha Kurunegala, Nikawaratiya and many other places.

According to local reports violent mobs marched through parts of the Kurunegala District for nearly 24 hours attacking mosques, homes and businesses in Muslim settlements in the area with most of the violence taking place during curfew hours, raising fears of another anti-Muslim riot in the area along the lines of Aluthgama in 2014 or Digana in 2018.

Mobs laid siege to the Kuliyapitiya, Hettipola, Aukana, Kottampitiya areas and by evening May 13 had moved to Nikaweratiya town area driving Muslim families, now in the midst of their Ramadan fast, into paddy fields for hiding.

Footage has emerged of mobs moving through towns during curfew hours in full view of the police. Mobs burnt vehicles meters away from the Hettipola police station earlier in the day. Activists also reported that mobs stopping vehicles and beating passengers. At least three mosques were attacked in Kiniyama a Muslim village in Kuliyapitiya.

In Padiyathalawa a Buddhist monk entered a Muslim owned shop and chased out Sinhala customers before   threatening the shop owner to   leave Padiyathalwa.

Police arrested several suspects in connection with the violence overnight but released them within hours after the mobs threatened to attack more and more villages unless the suspects were released.

The police curfew meant nothing to the mobs, and they roamed free as Muslim families fled their homes fearing for their lives. Muslims have lost all faith in the police, security forces and the government to provide them protection.

For example M.S. Fouzul Ameen 49, a well-to-do furniture shop owner from Kottaramulla in Nattandiya was killed due to serious cut injuries to his neck and face.

Ameen had been home with his family on Monday evening, about to end the daily fast around 6.20 p.m., when a mob   begun to stone the house and smashing windows, while the family stayed huddled inside. It was when the men started to smash his vehicle that Ameen had come out in a bid to dissuade them from doing so.

“The group of about five men had turned on him when he came out, and slashed him with a sword. He had fallen to the ground grievously hurt, after which they had poured turpentine that was lying around in the wood workshop on his face and left,” said Mohamed Haniffa, an uncle of the deceased.

His 16-year-old son Ajmir is too upset to talk, as he sits quietly clutching the National Identity Card of his late father. His younger siblings are too young to fully realize the gravity of the situation unfolding around them, while their mother is too distraught after the events of the past 72 hours to talk. Now what is the plight of Ameen’s wife and children.–courtesy FT Lanka?

Minister Navin Dissanayake said that the anti Muslim violence were organised and systematically cariied out and the  government has evidence to prove the claims. He said groups were brought in from outside but had support of area politicians.

Now the question is how come the government was not aware of these gangs and why preventive measures were taken to stop the carnage? Once again   they allowed that to happen?

Maithri-Ranil government made no moves to control the violence or call in the armed forces to stop the violence.

Meanwhile report by Shamindra Ferdinando in the Island on May 18 had this to state;

Deliberate attempts were made by influential interested parties to divert public attention away from the Easter Sunday carnage, a senior spokesperson for the Catholic Church told The Island.

Well organized attacks on the Muslim community in the North Western Province and Minuwangoda in the Gampaha District from Sunday (May 12) were integral part of their despicable strategy, the spokesperson alleged. “Various parties are seeking political advantage of the unprecedented crisis,” the official said.

Early this week, Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith urged political parties not to be influenced by countrywide.

The priest alleged that there hadn’t been contingency plans in place to counter threat posed by those seeking to take advantage of the situation. Attacks on Muslims not only diverted the public attention from terror attacks blamed on extremist Muslim organizations, but drew international condemnation of Sri Lanka, the priest said. The UN censured Sri Lanka over the situation caused by the government’s pathetic failure to thwart organized attacks, the priest said.

The Church official pointed out that the government and police hadn’t explained as to how such large groups freely raided many towns in the Wayamba Province and Minuwangoda without hindrance. “We haven’t heard of at least one instance of the police or the armed forces firing in the air in a bid to control organized mobs,” the spokesman said.

In article in The Island on 18 May Prof Tissa Vitarana had his to say;

It is clear that the extremist jihadists   were allowed to build itself into a sophisticated terrorist unit that could carry out the coordinated Easter Sunday attacks. That there was some expert guidance and direction from abroad is likely.   But it is clear that the intention was to engineer an anti-Muslim backlash from among the Sinhala and Tamil Catholic communities. This objective has been checked by the great leadership provided by the Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith and by the restraint shown by the Buddhist and Hindu clergy.

It is clear now that the UNP is trying to repeat what they did in 1983, but this time against the Muslims.

An attempt has been made by the UNP and its foreign masters to lay the blame on the Sinhala Buddhist majority and the Opposition. Religious riots and chaos could enable the UNP government to get approval for the Counter Terrorism Act (CTA) and implement it so that elections can be postponed indefinitely and a police state established to enable the UNP to remain in power. If all this fails, the UNP has opened the door for American Military interventions. Sri Lanka may end up as a battlefield like in Syria and Iraq providing a market for American and Israeli arms. The independence and sovereignty established by the 1972 Constitution will be no more. Sri Lanka will become a devastated neo colony of the USA.

    Mr. Latin Farook
    As an educated senior in your community ,you should know better than to trot out fanciful theories, blaming the CIA, Israel and all else but Muslims for the Easter Sunday terror. You seem to operate on the same level as those “Sinhala Buddhists” who are currently accusing Muslims of organising attacks on themselves.
    It is perfectly true that the West radicalizd Muslims by creating Israel on Arab land, and the US took it to another level by creating the (then ) “heroic” mujahideen in Afghanistan. One of whom happened to to be Osama bin Laden. It is also true that Western media is blatantly one sided, like ours.
    But the fact is that the bombers WERE local Muslims. It could be that they were radicalized by Western actions in Syria, Libya, etc. but that does not change the fact that they were local.
    Therefore it is the responsibility of seniors in your community, like yourself, not to indulge in buck-passing. You ought instead to look inward and question why the community has become increasingly conservative and fundamentalist, and intolerant to even other Islamic sects. Ok, maybe the West makes it worse by stupid murderous actions, but does growing long beards ,wearing Arab robes, covering women in black do anything other than isolate Muslims from the other communities?
    I am not accusing all Muslims of being terrorists. But why go around dressed like terrorists? You will only fall prey to the Sinhala Buddhist terrorists who are currently on a roll.
    Mercifully this time you have not accused the CIA of organising the TwinTowers attack. Responsible journalists should be able to tell the difference between facts and YouTube faction.

      You sound either naive, or perhaps your mission is to deflect, and at the same time take an ugly stab at Muslims.

      Israel is not a saintly nation. It is one of the most disliked nations in the world (BBC) for good reason. It kills unarmed civilians almost on a daily basis, for protesting their brutal occupation, have their lands stolen, and children thrown in jail. Perhaps now that it has joined yet another brutal nation, Saudi Arabia, it can now have idiotic radicalized Muslims, do some of their dirty work.

      This is Colonel Wilkerson who helped Colin Powell sell the Iraq war at the UN with fake intelligence, and now has regretted what he has done,
      and criticizes the US for the instability in the region, because of American wars:

        Shanthi,
        “You sound either naive, or perhaps your mission is to deflect, and at the same time take an ugly stab at
        Musims”
        In case you haven’t noticed, I have condemned discrimination against Muslims on this forum. For example, I have exposed the ban on Muslim businesses in places like Kiribathgoda and Kelaniya by thuggish Sinhala Buddhists. I have been accused of being a Muslim myself.
        But what has to be said is that some Muslims in the last 25 years have made their own situation worse by turning into a quasi-Arab community, complete with burqas, thereby cutting themselves off from any interaction with others. Thereby they become sitting targets for racists
        Anyone who defends these practices should think again.

      Yes. We ALL know HOW the Para-Sinhala Buddhists behaved and the state accommodated their criminal l activities for the years in 1958, 1977, 1983, 1983-2009, 2012, 2014, 2017, 2019 against initially the Tamils, then Muslims and Christians.

      What is NEW is HOW the Devil, Satan, Iblis following Wahhabi-Salafis and their clones, ISIS, Tauheed Jamats etc. are behaving, since the Wahhabism was promoted by the Saudis. They have been attacking the Sufi Muslims, who love God, as the Wahhabi Salafies love Satan, Iblis.

      Ref: Hadith of Najd

      How to debate with the so called Wahhabi-Salafiyyah and their clones, ISIS, Tauheed Jamat, Boko Haram etc.

      Scholar from al-Azhar: Wahhabism is a Satanic Faith, the Horn of the Devil that Muhammad Predicted

      April 21, 1802, Wahhabis kill 5,000 Shia Muslims in Karabala, Iraq.

      April 21, 2019, Wahhabis kill 250 Christians , Sri Lankans and tourists,

      The Para-Siinhala Buddhists continue their mayhem and riots, they started in 1958, in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, extended from Tamils to Muslims. They cannot tell a Wahhabi from a Sufi, because their mean IQ is 79.

      Why not give up your Satanic Wahhabism and become a Sufi, who loves God?

      “Responsible journalists should be able to tell the difference between facts and YouTube faction.”

      Common sense, rationalism, facts, …. and truth bid adieu to this land many many moons ago. Feudalism still governs the thinking of almost all fiefs, irrespective of their status in this island.

      Journalists and Columnists are not exempted.
      They tend to believe commissions and omissions in their writing make them appear loyal to their respective tribes as if their loyalty is paramount important to their little fiefdom.

      By the way almost all his typings contained Tamil/LTTE or Sinhala/Buddhist bashing. However I am yet to see him exploring relationship between Muslim Home Guards (another ethnicized branded Dead Squad) and state security forces over many years.

      Sinhala/Buddhist do gooders such honourable people as Taraki, wannihami, Lal, …… on patrol, protecting the Muslims after being harmed.
      I cannot understand why they have to harm the Muslims first and then protect them from themselves.

    Latheef Farook, attacks on helpless and voiceless Tamils by organised gangs also took place during curfew. Even Muslims looted Tamil houses and shops during curfew. In eastern province Muslim home guards went on the rampage during curfew killing helpless and voiceless Tamils and destroying their houses, shops and temples. Had Muslim politicians and journalists raised their voices then, when Tamils were the victims, this sad state would not have befallen on Muslims.

      Dr.Gna!
      You have said it well. From 1952 or even little before, the Muslims started playing a double game. When it is beneficial to them they joined the Tamils- but the never fought for their rights, and when the Tamils were being attacked they too joined the Sinhalese on the basis of “Vasipathata Hoi” In the east they cheered Hisbulla when ever he robed the lands of the Tamils. Even to build his University he forcibly evicted the Tamils to have his way and he had his way until the attack on the Churches and Hotels. Even to attack the church goers they selected the Tamils and not much of Sinhalese.. Why? Is it because they were an easy target after the war. The Muslims never shed any tears or condemned the attack on the Tamils at Mulli vaikal. Now they are in the for front of celebrating Vessak and may be Poson next month. Not withstanding we sympathies with the innocent Muslims who were attacked by the army/mob to show off to the Sinhalese.

    Mr Farook
    I understand your feelings, when your people are attacked by a senseless racist mob. Everyone should condemn such atrocity. You cannot blame the present government alone for this. For one it is an inbred culture of singhala mob to loot when an opportunity arises. We have seen that in 1956, 1958, 1977 and in 1983. What is the saying you can take a villager out of the village but you cannot take the village out of him. All have to pay for it. In srilanka one community think that they can destroy another prospering community by such act but in the end all communities suffer as we have seen in 1983, when we lost Motorola’s investment to Malaysia.. see the article “Democracy Has No Meaning If Mobocracy Can Rob Property Of People” by By W A Wijewardena –colombo telegragh May 21st.
    The present mob rule can be averted by the armed forces but they seem to encourage the mobs rather than try to curtail it, further more the army commander seems to fool the public by exonerating the soldier seen in Nattandiya incident, stating the soldier was adjusting his arm staff and not calling the mob when it crystal clear on the footage the soldier was signalling to the mob with his arm raised . May be the army is still under or sympathisers of the opposition. You have quoted tissa vithara, a principleless man, to put the blame on the government ,what an ill choice. I would put the blame fairly and squarely on the opposition, who are opposed to CTA which has no power for police state as claimed by the rajapaksas.

    Lathief has been at the forefront of Muslims (with Usuf, Harees, Ameer and a few others, crying black and blue about racism, discrimination and violence against Muslims. Looking back, this was the curtain behind which the ISIS animals grew, and distributed explosives, guns, swords and kris knives to the so-called ‘innocent Muslims’ living buried in even the remotest vllages of our country.

      “No one will believe you”.

      Who are you speaking for? There are plenty of people who believe that INNOCENT Muslims, who have nothing to do with these Easter day criminals, are being unfairly attacked. Mosques and businesses have been destroyed, and one person killed. You think this is imagination?
      It is comments like yours that are adding fuel to the fire.

      That is why religious leaders like the Cardinal and many Buddhist leaders have spoken out, and showed their support for them promoting unity. It is hate and Islamaphobia, when someone blames ALL 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide, for what these criminals do. That will be like blaming all Catholics for what the pedophile priests do, or all Buddhists for what the Saffron robes terrorists do. We also have a dark day in our history in 1983 when innocent Tamils were attacked, their businesses and homes destroyed, and brutally killed because of what the LTTE did, and we do not want history repeating itself. When you are prejudiced it is hard to differentiate terrorists from innocent people. Get real.

        Shantha an Islamic racist posing with a Sinhala name, there are plenty of people who believe that INNOCENT Tamils who had nothing to do with LTTE terrorism were unfairly attacked, their houses, businesses and Temples destroyed and several people killed by Muslim terrorists. So far none of the Muslims have accepted this leave alone apologized for it. Do you think that this is imagination. Why are you silent on this Muslim atrocity, while shedding crocodile tears for Tamils being subjected to violence by Sinhalese. Remember several Sinhalese have accepted that they have committed crimes against Tamils and have apologized to them. This is the stark difference between Sinhalese and Muslims. Please get real.

          You are ill informed and not following the news. Muslims have shown their regret, and have condemned these terrorists, days after these attacks happened. They have even refused to bury these criminals in Muslim burial grounds. Try to learn to research before making silly comments, and not looking very intelligent.

    Latheef Farook: You people are used to say everything is Allah’s wish. When you people blow up or kill, you say Allahu Akbar. Why don’t you say that when you lose too. What do you say humans are not humans and they do not feel taking revenge. When Muslims kill, they should be foreign and when Muslims were killed then some one is wrong. Just say, Allahu AKbar and accept it.

    Mr. Latheef,
    Srilanka has a history of organizing violence against non-violence civilians particularly Tamils for for past seven decades. Truth of the matter is that Srilankan security forces are sinhalised, weaponsied and none of the political leaders have control over them. They are controlled bu Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalists. It is also a fact you may deny that Muslim armed groups allied with Sinhala military did the same for thirty years.
    Today I read a news that a family travelled to a temple in Mullaituvu in a van was stopped by police and they arrested them by charging that they had a bomb with them. What really happened was they falsey accused the van driver for violating a traffic rule and they were expecting a ransom but they driver refused. If that happens in North after 10 years of end of war, the same would have happened in the East as well in abundance. I assume that the finding of knifes and swords in the mosques could be similar motive. Two years back they arrested former LTTE member accusing the murder of two policeman. Now they put the balme on Muslims Terrorists for all. This is the beauty of Sinhala Intelligence service. The murder would have been organised possibly by the intelligence service. Look at Lasantha murder, the best intelligence service in the world is looking for the murderer for 10 years. What a joke?

    As usual yet another Maralathoniya from writer farook. Nonbelievers never ever supported these suicide gang led by man called saharan.He was a member of Muslims community of Lanka. To make mind set for suicide attacks it take at least five years as per mental specialists. As such It was Muslims community responsibility to prevent it changing their mentalities. As such entire Muslims community here in Lanka responsible for these brutal attacks took place in number of places. As such Muslims community can not complain on reprisal from others. It is very natural occurrences.You all have to bear all the losses I suppose..

    This article is biased. After all 250 got killed by Muslims on #EasterAttack and they try to get away from it by saying “voiceless and helpless Muslims”, blaming the Sinhalese for mob attacks. In past too, Muslims caused unrest in #Aluthgama, #Digana and else where and ended up throwing blames on Sinhalese Buddhists and they(Muslim) as the victims. They knew #IslamExtremism were going on for a long time and they (Muslims) supported it. When bombs blasted on EasterSunday, victims supposed to bare the lost and stay calm. As a community, Muslims should have taken responsibility of their own actions. They should have corrected their own people and guided them not to take the wrong path. It didn’t happened for the last decade. On the other hand Govt should have maintained law and order entrusted to them by people. People should have left the Govt to maintain the law and order of this country. If Govt fails, people might take law into their own hands.

    This article defends only the Muslims as victims. This article wants to put the blame on Sinhalese Buddhists and safe guard the Muslims(culprits). They are not “voiceless or helpless” as article says. Because every Friday they go to Mosque and they learn about #IslamExtremism and cultivate hatrism on Non-Muslims and take distant from other ethnic groups by hiding in #Burqa #Niqab. Don’t moderate Muslims see those? They see and they remain silent. They should have stopped #IslamExtremism before the disasters. After disasters due to neglegence of the rest of the Muslim community, it is baseless to say that they are helpless but to face the repercussions.

    Muslims are the perpetrators who are now pretending to be the victims while the true more than thousands of victims and their families are voiceless, helpless, etc.
    /
    Muslims are the attacker, aggressor, and invader. On Easter day, Muslims killed more than 250+, Muslims injured more than 500+, etc.
    /
    Unfortunately, for some Muslims’ couple of broken windows are news worthy than the killed 250+ and injured 500+ by barbaric Muslims.
    /
    Yahapalana retards are preparing for upcoming elections by covering up Muslim terrorism. They’ve chosen majority Muslims’ votes over minority Catholics’ votes.

      Put your hatred aside and get this into your brain:

      ” It may never be possible to know the true death toll of the modern Western wars on the Middle East, but that figure could be 4 million or higher. Since the vast majority of those killed were of Arab descent, and mostly Muslim, when would it be fair to accuse the United States and its allies of genocide?

      A March report by Physicians for Social Responsibility calculates the body count of the Iraq War at around 1.3 million, and possibly as many as 2 million. However, the numbers of those killed in Middle Eastern wars could be much higher. In April, investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed argued that the actual death toll could reach as high as 4 million if one includes not just those killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also the victims of the sanctions against Iraq, which left about 1.7 million more dead, half of them children, according to figures from the United Nations.”

      I would call THAT barbaric.

      So who are the biggest terrorists who kill in HUGE numbers? It is because of these Christian/Jewish wars that the Middle East is now de-stabilized, millions of Muslims killed, millions injured, and millions are now refugees. Their leaders have been toppled and killed, and their once flourishing countries are in rubble. These wars have resulted in terroristm, radicalization, and the curse the world has to endure.

      Who is paying you to write such Islamaphobic comments? Shame on you.

          Only idiots will believe that 75 percent majority will be taken over by a 7 percent minority. Bad try.

    John the unbaptized piece of shit, your aggressor must be that saffron robed terrorists who with his master Gotler that financed and sponsored several radical groups. These Muslim youth did not go join ISIS seeking 72 virgins because vergina’s are useless to a soul in heaven without that part fo the anatomy they have on this earth. These Muslims got radicalized and joined ISIS out of necessity to someday bring back that kind of terror into this country as a pay back for all your Buddhist fascists have done to that community since 2010. Did Sinhala fascist understand that Easter itself is a pagan ritual that true Christianity distances itself as the resurrection of Jesus did not happened during Easter. John, why not go f one of your saffron robed monkeys that incite further terror and divide our communities with the intention for destabilizing the country so that your 7/11 toilet cleaning sakkiliya can contest. Your Jonny boy sakkiliya I am told is the mastermind behind these attacks with the rest of his Madamulane murders who cling by their succors to the Cardinal. The truth is unraveling day by day.

    Muslims say, even after killing 290, Maiming over 500, Destroying the Revenue of Many people, many businesses, victims should not get angry and stay quiet because it is Muslims. what BS. Even though people were patient, do not think that they are saints. Just like your Nabi thuma, they did not say, kill only the non believes and not rhe believers. So, you say quote the book wrongly.

      JD, you have a good point. These attacks will hurt tourism very badly. Millions will be lost in revenue. The Gulf States that financed the construction of the radical mosques should be held liable.

        In 1971, 1977, 1983, between 1987 and 1991 the tourism industry came to standstill. Where did you get your compensation for millions of lost revenue, Karl Marx, Mao, Anagarika, Castro, Mahasangha, …………….perhaps?

    Oh Dear old some body!

    OK for an argument sake we accept that all Muslims are very bad. Why the GOOD Sinhalese mob with motorbike came from different area put the factory on fire in Minuwangoda and made 200 or so Sinhalese family suffer? What is the difference between violent Muhammad and peace loving Buddha? Did you make Buddha happy with your stupidity? Come on guys there is no chance. You will behave like this until the country is divided into two or three. Then you will be fitting to the connotation Sinhalaya “MODAYA” .

      AHMAD NADVI: Prove that it was the Sinhala buddhsits that did the destruction and it was Religious hatred and there was no political ambitions and there was no handler behind. Do not be Stupid. I accept that Mohammedans are Good muslims and they talk about supreme Love and they do not have time to kill infields or non believers and protect believers. Just Grow up. We are not dumb to accept what any one says.
      April 21st Human attack was essential. Because, gotabhaya Rajapkse signed an agreement in 2007. That Agreement had to be updated in 2017 and it was to be signed in September or OCtober 2018. that did not happen. Only way, that could be signed by the govt is if something serious happened. I don’t think Tamils are that stupid now. but, some dumb muslims got caught.

    Mr Latheef Farook why the silence over crazy Mohommedan’s going Allah, Allah and blowing up and killing innocent Kafirs? Why are Mohommedan’s always the victims? Why is the Mohommedan cult never capable of accepting criticism and unable to conduct any sort of introcpection?
    It is clear to all Sri Lankans that Mohommedanism is a racist, dangerous, stone age ideology. The only way for us to save our future and our children’s future is to unleash Gota. Gota is the only dictator capable of controlling the Mohommedan cult. Either the so called moderate Mohommedan’s clean up the cult or Gota will clean it from outside.

      I believe I met you the other day at the Child Appreciation Society meeting. You were wearing hot pants and a lizard tail.

    Dear saurus!

    Thanks for indirectly warning people like you, ie. Oh Sinhalese people sort out Ganasara and Minuwangoda style mobs within your community otherwise these ruthless Jihadists will appear again or simply handover the country to Americans they may sort this mess quickly.

    Yes Mr. Latheef. First they disarmed the Muslims even with no possession of a kitchen knife. Then, as the same fashion earlier, the episode started with face covered thugs with arms, arsenals and stones in sacks. No body is responsible, No water with the fire fighters (because they exhaust the tanks before reaching -in some cases) allowing the people to watch the effect of the mob activity. Later so and so visits to console. Anyway the whole world witnessed the scenarios of the Wayamba and Gampaha causing over 900 million damage and a huge panic among the suppressed community. People say about the obvious political involvement. But denied. Shaped up. Loss is loss for the community and the nation. The tarnished image cannot be corrected by white washing. This may be an effort to drive the innocent youths to terror in both communities. Where is a human rights agents ?. Any one thing this is the last ? Until the chauvinist with killer minds prevail, the episodes will continue even with a change of government. Who is going to bear the cost for reconstruction, renovation, loss of capital for business, and the damages to mosques and houses. ? The future for minorities is quite uncertain. The people with human minds, meththa, muditha, and Karuna should come forwards to to control the drunkards and spoiled youths of this nation if they wish to see a beautiful nation with peace.
