BBS Wimalajothi Misleads People: All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama has strongly condemned the information presented by Kirama Wimalajothi thero about the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama at BBS conference, held at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium.

Issuing a statement today the ACJU said; “The venerable thero has misled those present, stating that the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is a recently established and extremist organisation.”

We publish below the statement in full;

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama statement opposing the ideas expressed at the Bodu Bala Sena Conference on 2014 .09.28

The Bodu Bala Sena is unrivaled in the history of Sri Lanka in its campaign of insulting other religions and posing a threat to the harmony and peaceful co-existence between the ethnicities. It is extremely hurtful that they would choose to degrade, insult and humiliate Islam, a resplendent religion that teaches the great values of equality, brotherhood, and humanity; with a history of 1500 years and followed with unwavering faith by over 1620 million people worldwide.

Kirama Wimalajothi Thero

Kirama Wimalajothi Thero

Many media outlets reported excerpts of the speech made by the leader of the Bodu Bala Sena, Ven Kirama Wimalajothi Thero on 28 – 09 – 2014 in Colombo at its ‘Mahaa Sanga Samuluwa’ conference. We strongly condemn the false information presented by the venerable thero about the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama at this conference, held at the Sugathadasa Indoor Stadium and attended by members of the clergy and the lay population. The venerable thero has misled those present, stating that the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is a recently established and extremist organization.

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is the apex body that is tasked with providing religious guidance for the Muslims of Sri Lanka. This is an organization with no political affiliations. Established in the year 1924, it has since been engaged in its duties diligently and continuously, and the Muslim community of Sri Lanka carries out its religious and social work under its guidance.

The contributions of the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama to the motherland during the times of conflict in the past, and in the post conflict era are well recorded facts known by all. Labeling this responsible organization that constantly promotes religious coexistence, patience and unity, as an extremist organization by a religious leader, is a grave mistake.

This country has a security apparatus, and an intelligence apparatus. At a time when all these high-level organizations are issuing statements that there is no terror activity among the Muslims of Sri Lanka; we see it as truly amusing that the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is being identified as an extremist organization by some elements.

We express our dissatisfaction in the strongest terms, at the expression of racist ideas at this conference held for the purpose of inciting tensions.

We would like to ask Ven. Vimalajothi Thero if he could present any evidence proving the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama’s involvement in inciting or supporting violence, at any time. We would also like to ask who could deny the fact that, even when the Muslim community was viciously attacked and their shops and properties were set on fire, it was the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama that urged them to practice patience and responsible behavior. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama has been an organization dedicated to peace, harmony and co-existence at all times.

We would like to question what right the venerable thero has, to label the Muslim community’s apex religious organization as an extremist organization. It seems that the venerable thero hoped to incite the Muslim populace by expressing such outrageous ideas, and therein start a new drama. On many previous occasions too, the venerable thero and members of his organization have attempted to prod the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama. At every such instance we have requested them to refrain from such activities. The venerable thero’s actions are contemptible, and should be rejected with disgust. The venerable thero should change his mind-set and his ways. The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama would also like to request that the venerable thero withdraw the wrongful statements made by him.

The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama also deeply condemns the attempts made at this conference to label organizations such as the Muslim Council and the Shoorah Council, which are engaged in community development and social work, as extremist organizations. We strongly denounce the actions of Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera, who, with the immature intention of creating a great divide between the Muslim and non-Muslim community of the country ignorantly chose to interpret verses from the Qur’an and traditions of the prophet; in much the same way the four blind men described an Elephant. We are also in the process of producing the correct interpretation of the same as soon as possible. Many of the other ideas expressed at this conference too are extremely upsetting. The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama is studying these in more detail.

On behalf of the entire Muslim community of Sri Lanka, the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama humbly requests that the actions of those who insult religions should be immediately brought to an end, and that His Excellency the President and the venerable Maha Sangha should pay immediate attention to this issue.

It has become a global phenomenon for extremists to point the finger of extremism at others, to hide their own nature. We see most of the ideas expressed at this conference as being unconstitutional. Totalitarian Fascism is not an ideology that accepts the existence of any religion. The constitution has ensured the protection of all ethnic groups and religions, and presenting totalitarian fascist ideas to deny those rights, raises serious legal questions. We believe it is now time that all Sri Lankans including the venerable Maha Sangha  and the moderate Sinhalese who form the vast majority of  the population, came together hand in hand to reject such fascist ideologies and create an environment of peace and harmony in our motherland.

    The All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama ,

    Do You know the Occam’s razor?

    Applying Occam’s razor, the simplest explanation is Sinhala “Buddhist” Racism and Chauvinism ans Maintenance of Monk Hegemony.

    The Hindu Tamils were/are the problem.

    Thew Christians were/are the problem.

    The Muslims were/are the Problem. The Current Sinhala “Buddhist” Racist Hypothesis.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occam's_razor

    Occam’s razor (also written as Ockham’s razor and in Latin lex parsimoniae) is a problem-solving principle devised by William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347). It states that among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. Other, more complicated solutions may ultimately prove correct, but—in the absence of certainty—the fewer assumptions that are made, the better.

    Sri Lankan rulers and bhikkus are blatant liars: There are many instances where they lied but these lies are obvious to everybody.

    Still, they keep on repeating their lies and again to make the gullible masses believe their lies as truth like what the Nazis did.

    Starting with the lies in Mahavmasa they propagate lies about history and every other matter for their ultimate goal.

      You are right, these bogus bhikkus and the regime’s racist leaders go hand in hand creating racial hatred in this country. They think that just because they are in majority they can get away with whatever lies they tell the people. They are in fact trying to divert attention from the UN probe into the human rights atrocities and genocide inquiries from taking place. They will miserable fail as truth will prevail. Bringing in the mad monk of Burma who was responsible for killing thousands of Muslims shows their mentality. Birds of a feather flock together.

    To incite, spread lies with the intent to poison ignorant minds, and spread the seeds of hatred, is the basis for this huge campaign against minorities, especially the Muslims, that these saffron robed terrorists are carrying out. So these attacks on ALL Muslim committees and establishments. Any committee that has some clout among Muslims or can play an important part to dispute the propaganda becomes fair game to the lies and attempt to discredit such a source. This is a typical example.
    This hate campaign seems to be deeper than we think, and the ruling regime allowing this to keep festering, and encouraging this continuous campaign of hate against the Muslims, make them complicit to the resulting hate crimes that may result in a blood bath.

    The government that operates in the most corrupt way, has failed all it’s citizens, by aiding and abetting in these crimes, and holds no criminal responsible, especially these saffron robed terrorists, who seem to wield power over the moderate Buddhist monks.

    All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama was formed in 1924! So that was way way before the fornication started for manufacturing Kirama Wimalaya in the woods behind the shack where his m lived. Interesting. And funny the ACJU should repeatedly refer to this bastard as “venerable”. Was that sarcasm?

    Well said ACJU. It looks like we Muslims need to stand up against these fascist monks and take up the challenge thrown at us, be it either through debates or through open letters, exposing their insanity and reckless mind-set before it becomes too late. They seem to be on a one-way street to commemorate the racial riots of a century ago, which to them seems their way of saying ‘we didn’t fail them in memory’. They have carried out their first test attacks already in down south SL, and are now hell-bent to carry out the next major pogrom to reduce the population by killing off innocent Muslim men, women and children Myanmar style, grabbing their lands and destabilizing them economically, whilst also laying their hands on the Muslims hard earned wealth. They need to be stopped in their tracts NOW, before we (ACJU) starts saying ‘We should have been better prepared for such a debacle’. Get the international community involved to watch-over new developments, rally support to oppose any Constitutional changes to remove or dilute minority rights. We Muslims really shouldn’t care too much to the proposed changes to the countries flag, or its name, since these are only of aesthetic values. It doesn’t mean anything to us as Muslims. All we need to be is to live our lives and die in peace as honest and good Muslims.

    These elements are simply provoking the Muslims, and expecting a back lash of some kind, so that they can justify the attack on their homes, businesses, and kill them, like they did in Aluthgama.

    The Muslims should not give them that excuse. There is a great deal of envy, just like there was during the attacks on innocent Tamils in 1983, when their homes were burnt and businesses destroyed. It seems these rabble rousers and violent mobs cannot stand the thought of the minorities doing well in their businesses, or live in decent homes. Not only do they attack these places, they also show their greed and dishonest by pillaging and looting these properties. These are the groups the BBS and extremists groups target with their lies.

    It is unfortunate that those who can do something, or should speak out loudly against these unpatriotic Sri Lankans, do not do so. They are watching our country beginning to go down the same violent road, that leads to terrorism, bombs and war, but are unable to stop the carnage.

    What game are the rajapaksa’s playing by remaining silent, or by giving a green light to terrorism, when they give the butcher of Burma the right to land on our soil? They are already complicit in the hate crimes against minorities by their mindless supporters. The next time a murderous Buddhist mob attacks a minority Sri lankan group, the blame rests with the rajapaksa regime.

    Every thing is fine in this article except calling HIS EXCELLENCY TO OUR TSUNAMI FUND SWINDLER,MASS MURDERER,THUG & RACIST.

    With all due respect to all our earlier Presidents, not all of them though, this MONSTER AND HYPOCRITE cannot be called HIS EXCELLENCY any more, at least by the minorities. He is such a RACIST AND A HYPOCRITE covering himself with the SATAKA and pretending like a true Buddhist. I do not understand how any minority MP/Minister can be with THIS RACIST with all these atrocities to minorities taking place under his orders. They also should be shunned by the community just like what happened to SLMC in UVA. This MORON and his lackeys be they Sinhalese,Tamils or Muslims must be exposed to the core for the people to know their true qualities.

    Sadly they did not know the real him for what he is when he SWINDLED THE TSUNAMI FUNDS and then again committed MASS MURDERS ON TAMILS at the final stages of the war.

    EXPOSE THIS CRIMINAL TO THE CORE TILL HE REACHES HIS LAST DAY,WHICH IS NOT VERY FAR, GOING BY THE EVENTS TAKING PLACE AROUND HIM, LATEST BEING THE SLAPPING OF CHRIS NONIS AND HIS RESIGNATION.

    FOR GOD SAKE STOP CALLING HIM,HIS EXCELLENCY, HE DOES NOT DESERVE AND IT IS AN INSULT TO THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. CALL HIM MEDAMULANA MARA OR CHANDIYA, THAT IS HOW HE IS BEHAVING SINCE OF LATE.MAY BE M.M INSTEAD OF H.E.

    The Muslims have little or no chance of refuting any of the lies of the BBS because they appear immune to all charges as they are sponsored by the Rajapakses, notably Gotabaya. The Muslims could try suing the BBS for defamation but the judge who takes it on board is in for the chop. Sadly the Muslims are divided among themselves otherwise they could join forces and ouster these dictators at the next election.

    Buddhism is being Hijacked by these kassippu Monks.Its so pity that the respect a Buddhist Monk had during our childhood days is no more.Buddhist thugs is a hand made handloom product of Rajapakse family to divert attention from economic problems the Country is facing today through Mismanagement.When SL face a war situation with LTTE,the politicians simply blame the rebels and carry on merrily with their corrupt practices unnoticed and the moment the war was over they got exposed.Unless they start another one their Political survival is at stake and one such medicine was evident during the recent UVA election.

      The truth is,what they had been hiding in their hearts
      for far too long,through out their lives,explodes via
      the most qualified lot,the BBS,Sinhala Ravaya and the
      JHU.First they brought the JHU and sat them with Fouzi
      and the others,later joined by people like M H Mohamed
      who went many times to Mecca to join the Saudi rulers
      for ceremoniously opening Kaaba for pilgrimage.On top
      of all that Muslim leaders elected by clean Muslim
      majority are still sitting and sharing political
      responsibilities with the very JHU!How can anyone say
      meaningfully that they are not with the JHU when JHU
      is part of the power led by the SLFP?

    Didn’t this Wimalajothi lying thero give well published press interviews to many outlets that he is stepping down as the head of BBS, because he doesn’t approve the way BBS is going? Now all seems it is all good for him as he claps when gandassara say throw away jathaka potha(while he writes books on Jathaka stories.) He cheers when gandassara says stop thinking about “uncertainty” the most basic teaching of the Buddha and then claims their leader is the lord Budda. I don’t know what these so called Dr, Intelligent Wimalajothi takes we normal buddists are. These are rougues who uses robes as a cover to advance their private business/political motives. Looks like he got the call from MARA and GORA to continue, as Gandassara is too much of a firebrand and Wimalajothi is perfect cover for the MARA to put seal of approval on BBS. It is laughable the things they say, they invite Muslims to join hands with the organization while they are trying to garner the support of Hindus showing Muslims as the common bogeyman and inciting violence against them. Then goes on to say that, We are a nation of Sinhala Buddhist only. IMO, all the minority gps who supports these kind of scoundrels should get a beating for not seeing the reality they portray to the national unity. He says he has half million Buddist votes, and the king maker. I think they need to be taught that the majority of Buddist people have grown beyond the collective intelligence of village upasaka ammas.
    If he has such a huge vote base ready to unleash with just a snap of his fingers, unto himself why doesn’t he name himself be the Presidential Candidate? The rapid collapse of our political structure started when the Buddhist monks started to contest in elections. And the sad reality is that dumbing-down of a nation continues through monks. It has gone to the point where, police officers arresting a local Muslim businessman in Balangoda for selling a shoes with “Sailor’s Navigation wheel”, being framed for selling shoes with Dharmachakra on it. He is been remanded for the collective ignorance of people, the police officers, and I am waiting to see the level of knowledge of the judge based on the decision he is going to give on this man. Budda has told many miseries starts with ignorance, well said 2600 yrs ago. So pls expose these thugs!

    “Jamiyyathul” is all over the world.Their job is to handle all the muslim activities and the Islamization of that particular society.

    So, BBS is telling the truth.

      “Their job is to handle all the Muslim activities.” Yes
      but not the “Islamization of that particular society.”
      They are not into that.They mainly help all govts
      handle Muslims by using their influence over the
      community exactly like Buddhists through Temples and
      Christians through churches.There’s no beating around
      the bush and it’s the present regime that’s beating
      around the bush,using a proxy and abusing a religion
      that is virtually non-existent in our country.If
      Buddha’s philosophy is a religion then so is Albert
      Einsteine,Oscar wilde,Ibn Khaldun,Pythagoras,Plato,
      Kant and so many others.It’s you who need to wake up
      and understand what you are trying to feed into a
      95% literate but 80% in the dark while 100% sun shine
      country!It’s the govt that’s sending the message to
      the world that there’s another Burma in waiting!

    This may sound insensitive to many of my Muslim colleagues.It is a fact that muslims have lived generations in this country and this is their country as well.Most of them are peace loving and co-existed with other races without any problem. However,over the years what I sincerely felt is they are compelled to propagate their religion by orders of Holy Quran. I have seen these verses read by VEN Gnanasara and I am quite sure that is true.This attitude definitely threaten the existence of other religions and cultures.Look what happened in Afghnisthan .They exploded Bamian Buddha statues following these verses.Now they are threatening to destro ”Borobudur temple”in Indonesia.If they don’t actively propagate their numbers and actively undermine other religions and culture there would not be this kind of animosity against them.They are knowingly or unknowingly threatening the existence of others whether we like or not we have to accept that as a fact.The extreme ”ahinsa” practised in pure buddism will counteract that threat is questionable.Muslims should do soemthing actively to show they are not threatening others existence and then situation will calm down.What BBS says is rights but how they try to handle the situation is bit skeptical.I am sure we don’t want our grand children to lead a subdued in an Islamized world practising Sharia law.Do we…I bet ”NO”.

    It is not BBS but the Jamiyyathul Ulama who has been misleading the Sinhalayas (the rightful owners of the country) with their Halal trade mark and trying to rip of the Sinhala traders. What the BBS said about how Sinhala Buddhists are taken for granted by the people, who came to the island called Sinhale and tolerated by the Sinhalese generocity is really true and now they are trying to order buddhists! How dare they tried to stop the invited Burmese priest to Sinhale!
    May be Sinhalaya was sleeping but not any more, thanks to the BBS.

    Why are the Muslim politicians from all parties organize a protest rally against BBS? Are there Muslim Politicians who are traitors to their own community? They all should demand that BBS leaders should be taken under terrorism prevention law into custody and charged in courts. Do the Muslim politicians have guts to do this.

    Pramod,

    Just clarifying your point.

    Is Buddhism a religion or a way of life? In my opinion it is a way of life through Ahimsa. Are you saying that you are going to out step from that line and be a radical to promote Buddhism, then it is no more Buddhism, but your radical form of Buddhism, which means you are creating a new form of Buddhism just like what even some of our fanatics in Islam are also trying to do. There is nothing radical and violent either in Buddhism or Islam. These are all quoted out of context by the extremist groups from both sides. I do not know, how a reasonably learned individual like you also get hijacked by these extremist elements.

    If you really need the meaning of what is said in the Quran, you need to know the circumstance under which it was revealed and must read the continuation of the phrase to know the real meaning of what was revealed WITHOUT BEING MIS LED BY THESE MORONS WHO ARE DOING THE GOVERNMENT’S DIRTY JOB TO INCREASE THEIR VOTE BASE AMONG SINHALESE, ESPECIALLY AFTER THE HIT THEY GOT FROM UVA.

    let me tell you an example, if some one asks you to bring some water.In what container would you carry, a glass, a bottle or a bucket. The answer to that lies in the place where the person is, if he is in the hall you may take it in a glass and if he is in a wash room, you might have to take it in a bucket.

    SO PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF THESE UTTERANCES BY THESE BBS GOONS WHO ARE QUOTING EVERYTHING OUT OF CONTEXT FROM QURAN. YOU MAY DO AN EXTENSIVE SEARCH, IF YOU ARE REALLY INTERESTED IN KNOWING THE REAL TRUTH.

    If you analyze this whole BBS show and targeting Muslims in Sri Lanka in a different angle, All I can see is this is an effort to revive Buddhism in Sri Lanka. Honestly if majority community question themselves am I a true Buddhist ? the answer will not be in majority.

    So what best way to grab attention than to jump in the band wagon of Muslim basing ? This is a well orchestrated activity. BBS do not process such capabilities. In my opinion this is still in infancy there is lot more to come.

    Imagine BBS having this sanga sauluwa without anti Muslim rhetoric and no Veranto ? much of the Sri Lankan Buddhist community wouldn’t have cared much and it would not have grabbed much attention either.

    Can the SLG afford to have another ’83 ? I don’t think so as it will effect them staying in power. Ultimate goal of current SLG/MR Regime is consolidating power and stay in power for conceivable future. (as they have no other option other than to be inside prison) The loans given by China and land given to China does not come free, SLG will have to give assurance to the Chinese that china’s long term interest will be honored.

    What BBS is doing is capitalizing on the weakness of rural Singahala population where the bulk of the voters come from. Only means of information for them is Rupawahini, Dinamina and whats said in the Pansala.

    Kirama Wimalajothi thero clearly said he is distancing himself from BBS, now he is in the forefront of the org again, probably it was his conscious which made him to say the right thing then he must have got a call from a concerned party for him to make the ‘U’ turn.

    In Sri Lanka everything is a show, Pope visits, Visit from OIC, MR photo with Obama. A double game played by MR Regime.
    Ultimate goal is not Buddhism, Sri Lankans or Country it’s only well being and continuation of their schemes.

    Is Buddhism going to be revived in SL ? in the short term people may talk a bit while SL image is being harmed around the world. In the long term other religions will make inroads.

    When you practice what you preach growth comes automatically. Why is it there is never a shortage of sheep, Cows, pigs and poultry ?

    This is my opinion. I believe Muslims in Sri Lanka need not worry about whats going around. This is expected and it’s happening all over the world. Do what you do best leave rest.

    Well said. In fact if the so called Buddists are true to their beliefs and practice Pansil then they will not have any animosity towards Muslims. In fact, they would be the best of friends and consider Muslims to be Buddists by practice too. Pansil is practiced by the majority of Muslims today in Sri Lanka. Sad to say, if you listen to the speaches in this samuluwa every single ‘Buddist’ monk and layman broke their Pansil one way or the other. They are the IS equivalent and should be rightly named BS. Abusing the good word or lord Buddha to proporgate their own agendas and hunger for power and money. There is similarity between Taleban at their infancy when they brainwashed the masses and created a generation of haters. Same as the Nazis etc. As you mentioned Muslism need not worry as they are Buddists by practice unlike the hypocrites like BBS. Gnanasara is a sad example for a human let alone a Buddist. We will all wish him and his followers peace and enlightenment. Sadu Sadu Sadu! …. If not we will see his own words come true.. Abasarani!

    If ACJU and BBS have differences they can confront whichever way they want, leaving the average innocent citizens of both communities to live in peace. In my opinion both these organizations have not done any good to the communities they claim they’re representing (nor will they do in the future except creating further problems), ACJU is partly responsible for some problems that disturbed Muslims, e.g. their Halal business; now to the community what they are doing is lip-service as quoted below from the article.

    when the Muslim community was viciously attacked and their shops and properties were set on fire, it was the All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama that urged them to practice patience and responsible behavior.
    This is like saying when someone’s house is on fire you preach Bana.
