      If our Muslim brothers want to promote communal harmony in Sri Lanka they should follow suit without compulsion.

        Maybe the Muslim men should give the Buddhist men some pointers since the latter don’t seem to be able to keep up on the baby-making front :D

        For a moment lets just think….
        Killing a human is murder of the person…
        Abortion is murder of the to be born child …
        Not providing the opportunity to be born….is Murder of Humanity…

        There have been so much of Human populations in history and so many other species who have been living on earth. who gave them to eat. Humans never had control of all their affairs and will never in any future too. All-mighty brought human and other species and will take care of all of them.
        When there is food on the table, Muslims 1st don’t thank their parents or the government or the person who kept the food on the table, but All-Mighty 1st. When a Muslim has a child he thanks All-Mighty 1st and seeks only his providence…

        How about family planning for animals too….

        So it is time HUMANS STOP PLAYING GOD… and stop meddling with NATURE ….

      They have made good decision. This decision is so Islamic. Take a look at Muslim dominate countries like Saudi Arabia. There isn’t any ethnic conflicts because they have already cleanse non Muslims. This site has forgot report about government sponsored ongoing violation on non Muslims in Indonesia like church demolishing. There are so many, Burma is just only one country and it’s inconsiderable compared to countries like countries like Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

      Yes you are right. In sri lanka, muslims are allowed to marry four wives at a time. Muslims can marry sinhala ladies as sinhala men have become bikkus and that they can not marry. Muslims can help sinhala ladies this way and make communal peace.

    Other countries where there are tensions with the muslims may also start to adopt this policy.It is not a question of will but when.When the koran forbids birth control with the strategy to use numbers to take over the lands of the infidels then the infidels will not be sleeping for long and will retaliate by forcing birth control on the muslims, or in some societies where the anti discrimination laws are strong instead of targeting muslims only may bring the policy for the whole population.

    A two child policy for the whole world I think is a good one because if we have more than 2 children now,one day future generations may be forbidden to have even one child because the planet will be so overflowing and food will become scarce.China is a good example where earlier generations overbred and the current one can have only one.

      This is Double Standards,

      The Catholic Church also opposed birth control, and advised against it. However, it is my understanding, for Muslims, it is left to the individual. The higher birth rates are due t low literacy and economic status, more than religion.

      1. If the Burmese want to limit population growth, then they need to apply to ALL citizens, and should not target one particular ethnic group or religion, like in China.

      2. Looks like more than religion, Racism is involved here. Most of those Muslims are of Bengali origins, darker than than the Burmese, who are of a different ethnic stock.

      In fact, if you were to analyse these Bengali Muslims DNA with those of Sinhala People, Sinhala Buddhist and even Tamils, there is not much difference.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinhalese_people

      So, this is Racism, not really really religion, just like in Sri Lanka, Sinhala Buddhism vs Tamils, and thee are are hardly any Tamil Buddhists, thanks to Mahanama Monk Myths and Racism.

      Studies looking at the origin of the Sinhalese have been contradictory. Older studies suggest a predominantly Sri Lankan Tamil contribution followed by a significant Bengali contribution with no North Western Indian contribution,[47][48] while more modern studies point towards a predominantly Bengali contribution and a minor Tamil and North Western Indian (Gujarati & Punjabi) contribution.[49][50][51] Multiple studies have found no significant genetic difference between the Sinhalese and the three other major ethnic groups in Sri Lanka (Sri Lankan Tamil, Indian Tamil and Sri Lankan Moor).[48][52][53][54][55][56]

        ”The higher birth rates are due t low literacy and economic status, more than religion”:

        Sri Lankan army personnel given financial incentive to have a third child. Next year it was extended to another category. Few months ago, the demand by BBS made the President instantaneously to withdraw one category of family planning unit.

        Should Burmese Muslims consider becoming SriLankan Buddhists who form 99% of the armed forces?

        Is Lester involved in the formulation and enforcement of these racist policies?

        If he requires muzzle power he could always count on Bodu Bala Sena.

        Dodu,

        head of Dodu Bala Sena watch out.

        After the birth of two children will Lester personally supervise castration of Muslim men and sterilisation of women?

        Most of the urban educated Muslims are having only 2 children or maximum 3 children. We all know that poverty, illiteracy and lack of availability of contraceptives that prevents any community to have more than 2 or 3 children.
        Muslims also must be made to realise that numbers do not count and it is how they are brought up is what matters. I heard there are only 14 million Jews ( figure is subject to correction, but any way it is less than all other communities) but they are the most powerful community in the world. They decide even the President of US. They control media and the arms industry etc etc.
        Islam allows birth control at an individual level. Size of the family is the decision of the family. But unfortunately it is not an informed decision. Recently I heard that in Moneragalle a very poor woman had 8 children and died at the childbirth of the 9th child. She was so weak. She is illiterate and poor.

        Muslims carry the biggest double standards in the world. What more to say Quran clearly commands believers not to take unbelievers as friends. Quran also tells Muslims to be hard against non-believers. Allah has instructed Muslims to discriminate everyone other than Muslims. And pious Muslims like ‘Amarasiri’ read similar verses five times a day. It is absurd if you Muslims expect Kafirs to treat them equally.

          I am no Muslim,

          Amarasiri is Egalitarian.

          Religion is the Opium of the masses-Karl Marx.

          Burma and Sri Lanka,are proving it every day. Bud underneath that is the hegemony of the monks. The same story with the Catholic Church and the Mullahs and clerics.Control of the people.

          The other day, a “Buddhist” monk, set himself on fire. He was a member of the Racist JHU and Sinhala Urumaya, and the State media guy knew about it, and transported the petrol, and was ready with the cameras.

          This is called Sinhala Buddhism. It has become the curse of Lanka. Even Lord Buddha will agree that Lanka should not have got Buddhism, and should have remained Jain and Hindu.

      “A two child policy for the whole world I think is a good one”

      This sounds to me like a continuous selective public scrutiny of private parts.

      If it is a problem for the future generation let them deal with it. I hope unlike the present stupid generation they may be well equipped with highly developed science base and technology with which I am sure not only they will find solutions but may thrive out of it.

      Human race has been dreaming about intergalactic travel for many decades and it may come true within the next 100 or so years. Intergalactic large scale migration may be possible. Human race may need large population to sustain itself living away from earth.

      The way things are at present the current population may not last another few decades, not because of population explosion but because of greed driven wars.

      Please do some research on China’s changing population policies in recent years.

      I strongly oppose state’s diktats in family matters.

      I would love to deny Lester his excessive happiness.

        Native Vedda,

        Lanka should have remained Vedda country and Vedda beliefs. These illegal invaders with their imported religion virus are ruining the land with their hegemonic monks, and following monk Mahanama Myths.

        Karl Marx, Engels and Lenin, all identified the Religion Virus problem correctly ans claimed religion is the Opium of the masses-Karl Marx.

        Burma and Sri Lanka are infected with a distorted version of the Buddhist virus, that has been eradicated from its birthplace, India. But underneath that is the hegemony of the monks. The same story with the Catholic Church and the Mullahs and clerics. Control of the people.

        This is called Sinhala Buddhism Virus. It has become the curse of Lanka. Many, the BBS, JHU,and the Buddhist politicians are infected with it. Some go mad, like being bitten by rabies, bite and burn.

        Even Lord Buddha will agree that Lanka should not have got Buddhism, the distorted version, and should have remained Jain and Hindu. This has been pointed out by the Ven. Dalai Lama.

        DeJa Vu, the virus infects, and make monks and their followers run amok!

    Muslim population is increasing because they are healthy family life, non alcoholic and follow the rules given by the god. This has increased their fertility rate in the world.

    It is the Will of the the Creator to determine the increase and decrease in the number of human beings. Any human effort on this cannot result in a deviation from this Will. China has laws to limit, then if found it is running short of human resources then it lifted the limitation. So tried many other countries but had to give-up. So the increase of Muslims will continue as it is the Will of Allah.

    Most families today have two children due to economic reasons. Govt of Sri Lanka has promised an incentive of RS 100,000 for members of the armed forces to have more that two children. It is doubtful if such strategies will work. Are you going to kill the third child of muslim parents? Such practices and double standards are against the UN convention on Human Rights. Ethnic Cleansing in another form? Mynmar, Rankhine state seems to be like the Nazi equivalent in asia in the 21st century. They will reap what they sow.

    Human beings are a parasite on this planet. This behavior is encouraged by our consumption based economics.If we want this world to exist in balance and in harmony we need to curb the expansion of the human population. A nations population should be within the means of the ability of the nation to provide for it. Ancient religious authors in an attempt to expand their belief systems encouraged increase in population without thinking of its consequences. This is no longer practical in an overcrowded planet.I believe governments should impose a limit on number of children per family.

      Kadira,

      The population increase is a function of the fertility rates and the mortality rates. Both are dependent upon the availability if the local resources to provide for and sustain the population. During the times of the start of these religions, mortality rates were high, and made sense for more births. This equation has changed.

      However, there should not be Double Standards.

      This is where the problem lies. Double standards , the basis of which is their Myths,promoted by Monks, Priests and Mullahs, so that they have a flock to preach and have hegemony over.

      Nirvana, Nibbana, Rebirth, Sansara, Heaven,Purgatory, Heaven and other beliefs are just Myths; they are beliefs grilled into those who are infected with the religion virus, son that the monks, priests and mullahs can exert hegemony over them.

      DeJa Vu

        Amerasiri,

        There have been high level meetings with members of the medical fraternity to discuss ways to control the Muslim population.

        Many ways have been discussed, some are unethical.

        You know, a lot of gyneas have deformed children, they say it is because they perform abortions.

        Likewise, let them try unethical ways to control the Muslim population, God will wipe out the Sinhala race !

        The story of the container that got caught with birth control injections, died a natural death. Wonder who imported it.

        How low will they stoop in the name of protecting Budhism. Is it in par with Buddha’s teaching ?

        Well ahamad., killing muslims in not genocide at all. Udara is not talking about killing muslims anyway. isnt it muslims who did Genocide al over the world ? Inst it Nabi who married a 6 year old girl and commited “constitutional rape.” I dont identify muslims as humans, they are non-human beast like people ( most of them not all ). And In Sri Lanka, muslims are a cancer already. so we need to get rid from them in future.
