Buddhist Monk Allegedly Assaulted By Muslims In Aluthgama

An alleged assault on a Buddhist monk and his driver by a group of Muslims, in Aluthgama on the Galle–Colombo Road yesterday (12th June) evening, near the Aluthgama-Welipenna road near Dharga town, forced the Police to fire tear-gas on a group of people, who were protesting over the incident. Traffic jams were also reported in the area after the protesters blocked the road.

AluthgamaThe incident took place on Poson Poya Day, sacred to Buddhists in Sri Lanka.

Ministers Kumara Welgama and Rohitha Abeyagunawardene visited the scene in an attempt to sort out matters. Welagama’s vehicle was reportedly stoned by the angry crowd and damaged.

According to a resident of Aluthgama who wishes to remain anonymous, “right now, on what was to be a peaceful Poson Poya day, my town Aluthgama is a war zone because of religious fanaticism. Mobs rule the streets, smashing Muslim shops, and Police just fired tear-gas to disperse the mob surrounding the Police station. There are rumours floating that Muslims are assaulting the Sinhalese in Dharga Town”. He adds that this is a blatant lie, “I spoke to a friend there and he said there was no such thing happening”.

He says that this is a repeat of events, “the last times it was kept out of the press and over a thousand military personnel were brought in. This is one area where Muslims and Buddhists live eyeball to eyeball.”

He goes on to say that there are ‘agent provocateurs’ who have been working to bring about this situation for the last few weeks. “I see shades of July 83’ in what is happening. Even normally peaceful people have taken to the streets. I’m right in the middle of the town and can see how the provocateurs are working”, he adds.

He further states, that there is an anti-Muslim rhetoric and the most ridiculous stories being floated around, “some of the temples are involved, I live right next to one”, he adds.

This morning (Friday 13th) the town of Aluthgama is reportedly in lock-down, with a very heavy Police presence; virtual saturation with the Riot Police, two water cannon vehicles and the STF.

A volatile situation is anticipated today, after Friday prayers at the Mosque.

May 10, 2014, a shopping complex belonging to a Muslim businessman in Dharga town Aluthgama was torched by a mob of around 200 people which includes Buddhist monks. According to reports the mob had torched the shopping complex of the brother of a suspect who had allegedly molested a boy at the complex. But the court released him on bail after watching the CCTV footage of the alleged incident.

    And the Rajapakse wants the world to believe, under their regime, the different communities are living in harmony? This is not an isolated
    incident. Muslims are targeted all over the island.

      I am sinhalese born buddhist, but I would not go torn hearing the news. Since all these past few months we only heard the things to happen the other way around. So, police has to react accordingly not allowing 83 akin riots not to be the case even some minority folks would react so. Not long ago, I also read somewhere that a shop of a muslim was burned down – causing him huge losses. Anyway, we dont need to make it out a big thing. EVERYONE of us are human beings. Sorry if the monk was injured but that the Sanga should expect while not reacting the way BBS, Rawana or other forces went amok until few weeks ago. Alone the way GAG embaraced the muslim reglious leaders on that Niphon hotel were beyond all civilized levels.

        Dear Ms. Thalanabatu,

        “I am sinhalese born buddhist, but I would not go torn hearing the news. Since all these past few months we only heard the things to happen the other way around.”

        1. You were born as a little girl.

        2. You were taught by your parents that you are Sinhala. The Sinhala came as as illegal boats people, Hora Oru, Kallathoni from, South India and the Indian Nagaland.

        3. You were taught by your parents that you are a Buddhist. Along with the Tipitaka, Jataka stories and Dhamma, you were taught a lot of lies and imaginations of Para-Monk Mahanama, from Mahawansa, as it was also written in Pali, imported from India, to Lanka, the land of Native Vedda.

        4. You were NEVER told the FACT that Sinhala are Para in the Land of Native Veddah, like all the other paras. You were NEVER told the FACT that Buddhism, Hinduism and Other religions are para as well, are Para in the Land of Native Veddah, like all the other paras.

        5. It is your duty to tell the truth. There are many para-Sinhala who do not want to tell the truth. What did Buddha Dhamma teach? Tell the truth or lie, like Monk Mahanama?

        6. The Proof is in you. All the paras carry it in their bodies as DNA. Testing will prove that the paras, para-Sinhalese para-Tamils, para-Muslims and other paras are Paras, in the terminology of Native Veddah.

        7. If the paras cannot behave as guests in an Egalitarian manner in keeping with the native Veddah Ethics and Culture, all the paras are requested to get back to South India and India.,

        Remember, the Paras came as as illegal boats people, Hora Oru, Kallathoni from, South India and the Indian Nagaland.

        She sent her grandson to school with the idea of providing him with proper education to make him a good person. The Buddhist monk in charge of the temple asked her to send the child to the temple and she sent him there because they were poor. There was no possibility for them to pay the money for tuition fees. That was the reason why they sent the boy to the temple school.When the child began to refuse going to the temple school so adamantly, grandmother had to look for the reason. It was then only that she discovered that the child who was sent to learn good behavior, ethics and Buddha’s Dharma from the monk had in fact been abused by the monk.

      Some of these monks are animals. They think they are the only ones who have emotions. All these are because of not having disipline. Earlier days buddhist monks were the ones who guided us the disipline and patience. Today the behave as if they become uncontrolleble mad dogs. If the rabid injections were administered to them at the early stages, these dogs could have been tamed accordingly.
      I really wonder why the very same buddhist dominated nation – while praying and listening all kind of AVIHINSA to go so wild as if they have become tarzons of the jungles. How can they send a message across the nation telling the world that their philosophy is buddhas teachings.

        The Rajapakse familial rule is sliding into anarchy. The President who came into power on the shoulders of the activist Buddhist clergy has lost them and is unable to control them.
        As the attitude of these monks, Weerawansa, Ranawake et al suggest they have turned against the regime. The regime survives because of the pampered army and their favourites in the Police and the forces. Will the fate of SWRD of 1958 visit Sri Lanka again.

        Muslims have been under relentless attack for many months now.
        They are entitled to the protection of their persons and property guaranteed in the Constitution. The Govt has failed them as JRJ’s Govt failed to protect civilian Tamils in 1983.

        The Govt desperately tries to escape the mess and a growing mass of hungry people, an army of unemployed educated youth and students. The Govt foolishly tries to create a smoke-screen of anti-Indianism, anti-UN sentiments and an imagined non-existent bogey of a return of the LTTE – all concoctions in desperation.

        The Rajapakse ship of State continues to sink.

      Sinhala Modayas are jealous of successful Muslim businesses. THe Hate speech of the Rajapaksa regime against Muslims has reached an all time high and the failure of cowardly MUSLIM POLITICIANS to leave the RACIST Jarapassa regime has resulted in this situation.

      In July 1983 the Sinhala state and politicians ran a pogrom against Tamils that targeted Tamil businesses and professionals. The idea is to take out the minorities from all private and state business enterprises and turn the Sri Lanka into a SINHALA ONLY ECONOMY and SOCIETY.

    Pretext for 1983 violence this time against muslims, but with muslims i dont think so, stupid people are trying to internationalize a issue. Muslims from all over will come individually and the buddhist working in middle east will have to pack up as i see few stupid monks causing more unwanted problems than they can handle.For muslims Allah is there and Allah is with the belevers

    I just cannot imagine why the people in power are not concerned about the gravity of where we are heading. The 83 riots started with the rumour mongers spreading bleak stories of things that even never happened. When the riots started in the South though responsibility was put upon the Sinhalese there were large groups of Muslims too involved in the vandalism. The riots were orchestrated by politically and racially motivated groups and then the gangs and looters joined in and finally some violent minded people from Sinhalese and Moslem communities joined the fray. It is time that peace loving political and non political groups join together with Buddhist and Muslim religious leaders nip this cancer in the bud.
    The only good thing that came out from the Aluthgama affair is that the opportunistic political henchman enjoying power have been treated in the real manner that they have to be treated.

      There are credible reports that the monk was not
      touched but filthy verbal exchange between three
      or four of them did happen and monk complained of
      a physical attack.Nobody will buy this including
      any sensible Buddhist and the experienced police.
      If anyone can find one Muslim son who can dare to
      attack a Buddhist monk,then BBS wouldn’t have had
      a chance to go this far without incidents.Is it
      regime change sign or regime consolidation?

    here comes true face of the peace loving religion. this is what they were been taught in Quran. Now Sinhalese go ahead justify this.

    Im sure this is what Sinhalese of this country were waiting for !!!

    Let me rimind something from Quran.

    The Quran:

    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…

    but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)”

    Happy ???

      Quran 2:191-Kill them wherever you overtake(not find)
      them and expel them from wherever they expelled you,
      and fithna is worse than killing.And do not fight them
      at al-masjid al Haram until they fight you there.But
      if they fight you,then kill them.Such is the
      recompense of the disbelievers.

      2:192-And if they cease,indeed Allah is Forgiving and
      Merciful.

      3:193-Fight them until there’s no(more)Fithnah and
      (until)worship is (acknowledged to be)for Allah.
      But if they cease then there’s to be no aggression
      except against the oppressors.

      You mean Muslims have started against oppression?
      You know something Peace lover?People in our
      country are consuming less fruits now because

    If a Buddhist monk (BBS) can raise his hand to slap another senior buddhist monk as we have seen in the earlier clip of Bodu Bala Sena, why cannot a civilian muslim slap a Buddhist Monk? We have also seen Buddhist Monks slapping and hitting civilians in a number of clips, if the monks can do it the civilians also should be able to do the same as the police did nothing in both those instances.

      They slap each other and rape each other.

      Now and then they commit criminal acts.

    This is exactly what I feared that would come to pass. In an earlier column I questioned what would happen if a Muslim attacks a Buddhist Monk as the Police do not stop the Buddhists Monk when they physically and verbally attack Muslims? When the law and order in the country has gone to dogs what else can a civilian do? We have enough proof by way of video clips where Bodu Bala Sena monks verbally and physically attacking Muslims. None of these attacks have been punished. So we should not be shocked at what has happened, although I do not condone any violence I can understand why this has come to pass. My fear now is – is this the beginning of things to come or is it the end?

    Buddhist Monks are assaulted and Sri Lanka has not torched itself to rubble yet, like 1983. I cannot understand that when a yellow robed monk is allegedly attacked and the Sinhalese people look on? Why? Either the regime is controlling everything? Or the Sinhala people are fed up and cannot be manipulated any more by the regime?

    The article suggests there are instigators who go around and incite mindless people to attack their fellow countrymen. These inciters are dangerous, and do so with ulterior motives, and NOT love for the country, or their people. It is up to the people to not get carried away with the lies, manipulations, and denigration of other religions. This is a very volatile situation and can be a prelude to yet another ethnic war, that we have suffered for decades as a result. We have just found peace, and it is abominable that this disgusting government, ignores this situation, and complicit in the attacks against minorities.
    If they do not clamp down on these communal clashes, it will escalate into something beyond our control.
    The government seem inept at controlling these thugs.

    This is where Rajapakse clan + Gota + BBS terror thugs + Myanmar Viratu 969 terror thugs + Gota’s Rakna Lanka security terror cult + China plan to take Sri Lanka to.

    This is how Rajapakses plan to divide Sri Lanka on Majority Buddhist Sinhala extrimists and other minority races to govern Sri Lanka as a dictator.

    This is how Rajapakses plan to evade Sri Lanka from UNHRC war crime charges by hiding behind Sinhala Buddhist Racist BBS fanatical thugs. Both are looking at each other for protection and for survival ehilr none of these Sinhala thugs who vandalized muslim shops will be prosecuted.

    This is a just a practice game as to how Rajapakses will unleash communal riots when UNHRC prosecute them on war crimes.

    Gen.SF who was the commander in chief during the final battle says he is willing at any time to meet UNHRC inspectors to answer on war crime charges to defend our soldiers, but it is only the Rajapakses who are feared of them coming to Sri Lanka. There should be something wrong some where for them to be feared so much.
    Where is Rajapakses famous “Eva Balava” mantra…..

    Let’s see how the Ruling family Jokers are going to play cat and mouse game with UNHRC. Only the citizens will finally suffer.

    It’s great to see that the Muslim community still have so much patience to tolerate these racist fanatic BBS terrorists vandalizing their businesses.

    These failed Sinhala Buddhist Alibaba looters with BBS thugs and their accompanied thieves do not know any other profession other than to rob and steal other peoples properties, land and businesses.

    It is time for all the minority races to Insure their property and to protect them from Rajapakse Alibaba and Gota’s BBS thug unofficial army.

      You are dead right.Many significant masses of the society would share the view with you. Muslim brothers in GNERALY are much more patient than us the sinhalaya. This I every time feel when recalling the way they harmed all innocient tamil brother in 83. That was not second to 2nd tsunami swallowed the innocient masses of people. That symbolizes the nature of the SRILANKEN muslims. As we are all aware of the facts middle east to anywhere, muslims in generals would not have that much paitent – but we should finally consider srilanken MUSLIMS are unique to them in that regard.

      Actually us majority buddhists dont follow the real teachings of buddha but the guidance given by estranged fractions of sanga. Today we dont have disipline at all. How can we – alone the leader of the nation use a set of expressions that ONLY harm the folks. The langauge we use should be polite enough not to create any kind of embaracements among the folks.
      Having heard Wadapitiya discussion Derana TV this week; I thought we are fully wrong.. from the beginning on. That Prof. Nalin de Silva clearly articulated it doesnt manner we even act somewhat violent when it goes to protect our religion ?
      Buddha and all peace makers of our era of the world have already preached only way to peace would be non-violent.

      I have almost lost my respect towards Hamuduruwos – pingutharayas who just hide behind CHeewaraya and do more harm to the country and nation. THis is no validity to the handful of good buddhist monks we have. Above all we need to remove the GAG from the scene to the very same manner South africans get them tamed their wild animals. Alone the Aggression potentional of Ghanasara allows to grow this far, Govt should be accountable for not reacting adequately.

    The police should investigate the incident and if the monk has made a false complaint he should be arrested and charged.

    If the muslims are guilty they should not be charged until those involved in the burning of the muslim shop are first charged.

    Nobody should be above the law.We have all these problems today because the law is being used selectively and some people are above the law.

    Let the games begin !

    I mean to say the Football WC. Last night match between Spain vs Netherlands was very unlikely of world champions.

    To me this looks like an incident not orchestrated by pro gov/or any of the animal sena’s (Balu/monkey/..) I think this an incident which
    sprung-up due to the actions of the animal sena’s in the past.

    The Hamuduru nama, might have tried to express his superiority to the muslims. What they forgot was gone are the days where a Hamuduru nama will command respect among any community just so he is a hamuduru nama nothing else. In the past no one will question the Hamuduru nama out respect for the robe. It is also a fact in the past their behavior was exemplary.

    However the tables have changed, the respect they commanded is no more. These are the fruits of campaigns carried out by BBS/RB/….

    The maha sanga turned a blind eye to the provocations, false accusation against other religions, attacks on religious places and discrimination of their own kind by animal sena’s.

    The response by the STF and Police indicates Law enforcement authority has gone in to overdrive to ensure this does not go out of control. We all know who mobilizes such personnel.

    However this will not be the last, the seed of hatred is planted firmly in the minds of majority community. There was a incident in a leading private school where 12 years boy was assaulted and made paralyzed due to religion related assault.

    This mentality can only be reversed by this GOV or the next successive government. The distrust and hatred is firmly spread across the island.

    Sad to say majority communities moral and ethical values has deteriorated to very low levels not only in the attitude towards other communities even among themselves.

        Lets not talk about Riots ! it will only bring shame to you lot.

        Breeding Like rabbits !

        Who told you not to breed ? But the answer to the problem lies in your inability to have sex with your wife often enough as you and and rest of your community is busy spending all your money in booze,drugs and spending most of the nights out of your home. While your women folks go looking for other ways to satisfy their sexual needs, which in turn destroys the social fabric of your family life.

        99% of alcohol consumption is among Sinhalese and partly with Tamils

        Who frequent the ganika madam ? who is working in the Ganika madams ?

        Mechanic don’t talk rubbish and spoil your won committees image. You live among a community where rape and fornication is so prevalent mother offers daughter for a fee, sometimes free of charge.

        1st put your house on order them talk about rabbits and pigs.

        The human gene is designed to propagate, to keep the species alive and kicking for generations to come. When your people take unnatural steps like birth control contraceptives, abortions, tying the wombs to avoid pregnancies including celibacy claims (such as in the case of Buddhist monks and Christian priests), then Muslims should not to be blamed for their population booms, since all of these said acts are considered Haraam – religiously prohibited. Instead, in the reverse, Islamic Law permits him to marry upto 4 wives and look after all of them (with love and affection to them and their children) all EQUALLY. If they cannot do that, then it is better for them to MARRY ONLY ONE. What law is better than that. Breeding like a rabbit (sounds insulting) should not be construed to mean a demeaning act, but as a blessing and a sign of being active, virile and fertility. Unlike bogus monks who keep committing sin night after night and preach bana to others during the day.

          One must understand that a Muslim man can have four wives means he can have four wives at anyone time.

          Koran allows them to divorce their wives at anytime by just saying ‘I divorce you’ three times. Then he can let her rot and remarry a younger one. That means a Muslim can legally have any number of wives in his life so long as it is four at a time. How many wives Muhammad had? Countless number. It is said sex maniac Muhammad married so many for one night.

          Like in China we must tax those that produce more than two or three children.

            It is never easy trying to discuss a point of issue when you tear into and turn abusive against the character of our revered Prophet of Islam, referring to him as a ‘maniac’, the leader of nearly 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide.

            It is better for you to judge and decide for yourself what is the best solutions for a worldwide situation in reference. If women outnumber men in the world in the ratio of 2 to 1, where do all of the women find husbands if the rule is 1 woman per man? Islam is the only religion with the solution. What examples have the world’s religious leaders left behind for their followers? As for Christians, Jesus Christ did not marry at all. Lord Buddha married, had a son but then deserted them and went into the jungle looking for solutions to the world’s sorrows. He never ever returned to his family. The Holy Prophet of Islam married by example and showed us Muslims that marriage is a sacred duty and how it should be done, including who can be considered legitimate in partnership. He taught Muslims not to commit sin through adultery and extra-marital affairs, but he brought in legitimacy to make it legal. If you had any idea of history, you should know that it was the general practice in those previous times for leaders or very rich people to have many wives in harems and as concubines, but it was limited to just 4 by God through His commandments in the Holy Quran. Now you tell me how many Muslim men that you know who actually have more than one legitimate wife, or OK lets say two legitimate wives, or 3 or 4 legitimate wives? None so. But I can tell you there are many non-Muslims (married and officially un-married) in society who have illegitimate wives and even children who can be termed bastards. Where is the law to control them? So much so that now it seems to be like the ‘done thing’. Living together, affairs outside of marriage, one-night stands, blind dates are all the phenomenon of the times with no one to question it.

    No Individual or a priest has the right to criticize a religion or attack another person. Acts of individuals in the name of religion also be shunned. Also its better not to be experts on others religious books. Such experts on religions will tell you when such a quotation was made why and under what circumstances. Its like reading a book on medications and a leyman prescribing medications.
    In SL the politicians had used religion and language for their own benefit. If they are the true believers of these religions which they demonstrate in front of the public, Our country would be a different one that we see today. Divide & rule is a lesson our politicians learnt well from foreign powers who try to teach us human rights after robbing ours for centuries.Unfortunately SL is fast becoming like a failed Rotten Banana Republic due to this.
    This is where we need free media and individuals like Social Activist Anna Hazare. These are the institutions which educate our people to change the corrupt system & make a better Lanka. The public first of all should stop squabbling and boycott media that side with divisional politics. Otherwise we will be ruled by thugs, pick pockets, drug barons and kasippu mudalalies. Hope the readers of CT can make that change rather than name calling and fighting in these columns.

    Tamils been dealt with. Now it is the time to teach a lesson to Thambis. Once Thambis are annihilated like Tamils, then Srilanka will be a 100% Pure Buddhist Sinhala Nation.

      Ranjith,

      Yes keep feeding your 100% pure Sinhala Buddhists with Grass and “Polkudu” coconut husks as they are nothing better than water buffalos.

      You can trick only your 70% villege Sinhala Buddhist “Gon Harakas” water buffalos and keep feeding them with Heroin, ethenol,Ganja and polkudu while sending them to ME to work as slave labour.

      If the Muslim countries stop just two shipments of Oil and gas to you, you “Gon harakas” will have to go in Bullock carts leaving your Lamborghinis and Mercedes Benz cars in your garage and start wearing Amude eating Kurahan roti.

      It is only your racist “pinguttarayas” who rely on free dana and the swolen head false pride Alibaba Politicians who are the root cause of all problems in Sri Lanka today.

      Just imagine what you will do if you were rich like the West and the Middle East countries. You will burn the whole Sri Lanka.

      That’s why you are been made to live like goats and work as servants to ME countries while begging for food, by who ever the creator.
      Keep importing Container loads Ethenol, LSD, Cocain, Ganja and casinos.

      Keep doing what you know best and eat more Grass.
