        By mosques and madrasas you must have meant pansalas and dahama pasalas. Only in those places are hate speech and terrorist idealogies spread in this country.

          This is an example of hate because Pansalas and Daham Pasalas preach teaching of Lord Buddha the prince of peace. This is in contrast to Islam which according to Koran promotes violence asking its followers to kill non believers and destroy their places of worship. Making unsubstantiated statement against Buddhists amounts to hate. Will the police take action against this person as a test case.

            The ‘prince’ of peace did spread lies and propoganda according to you? All sorts of lies, rumors and terrorist activity carried out against the minority starts at the pansala/daham pasala. Remember where the Beruwala violence started? At a pansala. Pansalas are spreading the prince’s message of ‘peace’ by asking them to turn into arsonists and racists. Clearly there is no peace bieng preached only violence and hatred. This is a fact. In reality its the buddists led by monks destroying tamil, muslim and Christian places of worship, and violence and killing of non believers is done only by sinhala buddists in practice. Do you need more proof about pansalas and daham pasalas? More like child abuse pasalas where monks engage in sexual activities with kids, if you think any of these are unsubstantiated, i can give you more proof.

    At least now we have a written statement from the Cabinet. If, as usual, this was left in the hands of the Cabinet Spokesman, The Minister Rajitha Senaratne and now the newly appointed “Co-Spokesman”, this message would have been made “Laughable” and “Comical”. I am certain the Cabinet would have realized the “Mockery” created by this “Cabinet Spokesman” and decided to issue written Statements. Thank you for correcting that “Big Mistake”. Now coming back to subject matters of “hate” and “inciting”, what should be done to stop any “well planned” activities that create an “environment” to spring up such “hate” and “inciting”? Shouldn’t the “Root Cause” for any “Trouble” or “Uprising” be identified and remedial measures be taken to root out the “CAUSE”? Shouldn’t the “PERPETRATORS” of such “WELL PLANED” and “EXECUTED” causes be dealt with in accordance with the Laws of the country. I believe in FIRST THING FIRST and in keeping with that, it is the PRIMARY ROLE of the Government to first DIRECT all the Law Enforcement Authorities to very strictly enforce all Laws available against ALL the perpetrators who provide the environment to spring up hate and inciting. Thank you again and again for not allowing the “Cabinet Spokesmen” to bring this announcement at those hilarious “Cabinet Decision Briefings” to media.

    Stop talking and DO SOMETHING!!! If you can arrest KP and hunt down the Snowden-protectors, the SL police can definitely find and arrest the fanatic Gnanasara.

    This statement is incomplete. Who do you want to please? Quote: “…. including incidents of hate speech by “certain individuals and groups” aimed at inciting violence…..” Unquote:– You have failed to mention the word “Politicians”. Therefore this is statement is one sided. For an eg: Hakeem lied about the fire at Nawalapitiya Muslim shop deliberately in order to escalate the religious tension. I said deliberate because he didn’t apologize for the error. Before him, there were others too. —— One fellow is in the Police custody for arsoning Muslim shops in Colombo. How about the Thawheed Jamath extremist group who attacked the Mosque in Batticaloa? Were all of them arrested? —- Religious tension has no impact on Reconciliation. It is a myth. Reconciliation is a broad subject which takes a long period, whereas religious tension is short lived if applied to every religion without being bias.—- Destroying Buddhist archaeological sites were done by Muslims. When Buddhists raised concerns, the Government should have inquired into it, instead they ignored. There is nothing racial there.— It was the inaction of the Government which made Buddhists feel discriminated. <<<< I appreciate the Statement. But please next time, you should include the word "Politicians" too. Be fair to all. You can't rule out the involvement and contribution of certain Politicians to religious tension. — One more thing. If Gnanasara Thero feels and complains that there is a threat to his life as he was vociferous in protecting the rights of Buddhists in the East, the Government should take necessary steps to protect him. He is not a criminal or a rogue. There are real rogues who plundered the country. They are in the government too without any problem. Therefore the life of Gnanasara Thero should be protected.

          Really? I don’t remember what I wrote exactly, but I have a right to reply, don’t I? There is a sickness named after Ralli Ameen. That is what I said. —- If the victim is not given a chance to reply, the abuser will continue without knowing how it is when the circumstances are reversed. —- This is not the first time Ralli insult my mother. It is disgusting to see how low people could stoop to insult someone’s parents who have nothing to do with one’s viewpoints. — I don’t mind anybody saying anything to me, but not to my family. —- Losers use slanders and obscene phrases to chase others from commenting. If it is the case here, Ralli is very much mistaken.

            Champa, there you are proving shit in your brain, that is what I exactly said. Coming from defecating place mean you had come with shit in your brain. This is not definitely insulting your mother but another way of saying given birth to a person with shit in the head instead of a brain. Since mothers give birth to everybody that word mother naturally come but it is not insulting a mother. There are many bad words if used for you it will definitely be insulting a mother but I did not use such words. Majority of Sinhalese knows Gnanasara and his cohorts are criminals. You yourself know death and destruction he brought to Aluthgama and carrying out in other places up to now even in small scales. Some talk bullshit because of Willpattu forest he came forward, so why can’t he take his army and attack those encroaching people. If you were to attack those encroaching forest reserves in Sri Lanka, 90% of victims will be Sinhalese and their politicians. Can you still write justifiably as a person having brain.

      Idiotic champa strikes again with his/her verbal diarrhea. Hakeem wasn’t trying to incite religious hatred, he naturally assumed it was the work of sinhala buddist terrorists who have set over 20 muslim owned businesses on fire this month alone. Face it, when the fire in nawalapitiya initially erupted EVERYBODY thought it was the work of sinhala buddist arsonists and hakeem was no different. Now that the heat is getting hotter by the day these terrorist forces clung on hakeems statement like a drowning person clutching at straws to try and weasel their way out all the acts of terrorism they’ve committed. So that magalkande thattaya issued this very same verbal diarrhea on tv having no other way out. You terrorists have no right to to talk about inciting hatred because any fool with half a brain knows that Hakeem issued that statement the very day that fire occured, and the details were unclear at that time. He was HASTY, not inciting violence. Know the difference idiotic terrorist champa-nzee.

        Coolie <<<< Hakeem assumed??? assumed?—- Oh, yeah, the Police also "assumed" that the youth who was taken into custody is a BBS supporter without any evidence to prove. BBS denied any link and accused Police for not verifying the facts with them first.<<<< Hakeem should also be arrested for "misleading" the community to escalate religious tension.—– None of the attacks were proved that they were done by Buddhists.—– Fortunately, the attack to a Mosque in Batticaloa was proved that it was carried out by Thawheed Jamath, otherwise there has been "another assumption" that it was done by Buddhists.—– There was an attack to a shop in "predominantly Muslim area" in Dematagoda. It is highly unlikely a Buddhist will go there to attack the shop.<<<<< Muslims were managed to “mislead the Diplomatic Corps” to issue a Statement "based on their assumptions" the same way the LTTE misled the Diplomatic Corps and the world for 3 decades.—- The Diplomatic Corps DIDN’T issue a Statement in condemning the attack on the Mosque by Thawheed Jamath extremist group or Hakeem’s attempt to create religious tension "with deliberate lies", which proves that they are bias as usual.<<<< I invite Sinhalese, especially Buddhists to read CT and see why it is important for us to be united and vote for ONE PARTY/ONE ALLIANCE at the next election. —- We NEED A NEW LEADER who can garner the votes of ALL Buddhists equally. —– LTTE Rump is very much active. —- Not only that even Muslim extremists and terrorists will also pose a threat to Sri Lanka very soon. —-The future of Sri Lanka is in the hands of Buddhists.—– I wish our leading Buddhist Monks make the community aware the need to be united as Buddhists to protect the country from the obvious threat to our Nation.

    There are no “hate crime” or “racism” in Sri Lanka.

Buddhism was imported from North and South India, Sinhalese gene was imported mostly from South India, so called Sinhala language was manufactured over a period of time by mixing large elements from Tamil, Tamil Grantha, Sanskrit, Prakrit, Pali, Brahmi, ……………large parts of Hindu rituals, Caste consciousness, Pallava architecture, Ayurveda and Siddha medicines, Astrology, Cuisines, ……………………………………………………………………….etc.—————– If you remove all these elements you have nothing to call yours. What you have is the Sinhala/Buddhists fascism which is being covered up by North/South Indian religio cultural elements. ————————– Even the valueless zero was not invented by Ranawaka Arachchige Patali Champika Ranawaka’s ancestors as he made out to be. —————You should go back to your ancestral home land and become a member of RSS, VHS, BJP, ……………………………… Go baby go.

      Johnny Baby————-“Fighting off invaders is not a “hate crime” or “racism”——————Oh please, when did the Sri Lankan armed forces fight the invaders? Hiding behind their women folks is not fighting. It was the stupid LTTE which fought the Hindian invading armed forces between 1987 and 1990 and packed them lock, stock and barrel back to Delhi and some 1200 in body bags. Were you too hiding behind your grandma or was it grand daughter? The descendants of kallathonies have a serious problem, please work it out for yourself.

      Exactly. Our Sinhalese Ancestors made a mistake when they defeated South Indian invaders, they didn’t chase their South Indian families from the Island, instead they granted them clemency and let them live where they were, which went to such an extent that they finally chased Sinhalese from the North and the East and robbed their lands. The good heart of Sinhalese were abused. The lands which were robbed from Sinhalese, are the ones they now claim as theirs. Sinhalese have a right to live in the North and the East too.—- A proper Government survey should be carried out in accordance with the law and all the lands forcibly taken from Sinhalese in the North and the East should be returned to their great great grand children who live in other areas.

They need not work so hard to live, if your selfish Tamil Politicians for over 5/6 decades and then LTTE for 3-decades didn't let Sinhalese Presidents/Prime Ministers to develop the North. —– They were not even allowed to visit North and meet ordinary Tamils. Even if they visited, they had to meet some selected group of Tamils chosen by Tamil politicians.—– Give me one example where Tamils in the North were allowed to talk to Sinhalese leaders about their socio-economic problems other than political issues parroted by Tamil Politicians?—- This is a crime, man. What your Tamil Politicians are doing to your own Tamil people is despicable. <<<<<< I saw the President chairing a Meeting to apprise the development in the North which I highly appreciate. —- We have problems in the South too. But somebody should look after Tamils in the North too. They shouldn't be left for poverty. Something has to be done to uplift their lives. —— I feel very sorry for them. They were marginalized by their own Tamils, not by Sinhalese. —– I highly commend President’s bold decision to chair a Meeting with local Tamil Politicians/Officials. He should hold regular meetings and try to reach out to ordinary Tamils to address their real problems rather than tangling himself in political issues which are brought forward to hinder his efforts. <<<<< On the Reconciliation front, actually our Army is making a great contribution without any publicity.—- They were "donating blood to Tamil Patients" for years, but none of the mainstream media highlighted it.—– Almost all the Tamils who were sick are now live on the blood donated by our Troops. —– I like that and salute our beloved Army for their compassion and care for Tamils in the North which brought tears to my eyes.

    This is a half hearted effort by the highest authority in the land to show to the world that the racial tension issues in the country are being addressed and not being ignored, although police inaction and tacit government support through its deafening silence, tells a different story altogether. It took 21 Muslim business establishments to be torched and many of their places of worship desecrated. The insults and abuse of their core religious tenets, the degrading manner of addressing them Muslims, citizens of this country with equal rights, as thambiyas, para hambayo and marakkalays, issuing threats of harm and annihilation, forced takeover and occupation of Muslim owned properties, is all heart wrenching and disgusting to say the least. There have been many Muslims soldiers who fought heroically and selflessly to maintain the unitary status of this country like Colonel Fazly Hafeel, Major Muthalif, Major Meedin, Colonel Tuan Ahmed Pakeer and many others who were an integral part of the intelligence gathering team, who paid the ultimate price with their lives for this country, and is the gratitude we get in return? I don’t have any faith nor any confidence in this government to do the right thing to treat all of its citizens alike with equality, to uphold justice and fairness and equal opportunities for all. To speak for all Muslims, we feel betrayed and angry and our hopes dashed, on this governments poor efforts to thwart racism and thuggery as promised on the election platform.

        John the donkey, Colonel Fazly Hafeel, Major Muthalif are Moors, so what they are Muslims. He forgot to tell about the important contribution Muslims made without which LTTE would have established Eelam. The ceremonial Sri Lanka army who knew nothing of modern warfare, expertise or weapons were trained by Pakistan by opening training camps in Salihapura etc. and also trained military personals in Pakistan. Supplied weapons together with China. After that only turning point started.

    Anyone, especially Muslims who think that now the government has given the order, everything will be fine and be complacent are only fools. This proclamation is made as a damage control measure to hoodwink the international community that the government is serious about the hate and violence in the country. Tamils have faced this situation since independence and none of the perpetrators were brought to justice. A few underworld characters who are a nuisance to police will be arrested and they too will be sent home without a trial when the limelight on the problem subsides. This same old story will be repeated, as any action against the real culprits behind these atrocities is a political suicide. If you think that this is the work of a handful of extremists which does not have the support of the majority, then sadly you have been put up the gum tree.

Bloody savage LTTE Rump paid goon! —– Government should strengthen the New Terrorism Prevention Act with more severe punishments. This Act is already good but it should be better. —– Not only that, any attempt to attach heroism to bloodthirsty terrorists or venerate them BY WORD or BY ACT should also be thwarted and the culprits should be sentenced to 100 years without bail <<<< Terrorism is spreading all over the world again. Not only the hardcore Terrorists but all other terrorists who are in custody should NOT BE RELEASED under any circumstances. <<<<< The President should not make the mistake. He has no right to put the entire country in danger. —– Mr. President, if you think the terrorists have a right to be released from the prison, then we have a more right not to be killed by terrorists. They are deadly. There were many instances even the rehabilitated terrorists were caught with bombs and explosives. There were many attacks on Police and Army in the North which are still under investigation, I repeat, still under investigation. LTTE accumulated wealth by human smuggling, dangerous drug business and ransom. There are many drug related incidents in the North.—– Mr. President, after you assumed duties, how many cocaine containers, I repeat, containers came to Sri Lanka? Do you really know who is behind it? Not Sinhalese. Have you ever heard any other country receive “containers” with cocaine? Don't even think of relaxing the law on terrorists, Mr. President. They are accumulating wealth again, don't you see?—- Please take expert advice, especially from the Intelligence and Tri Forces, before taking any decision. Any rash decision will undermine the security of the country. The lives of 21 million people are in your hand.

            Romani ——- Oh please enlighten me with proof! I didn’t accuse anybody. I said not Sinhalese and I was talking about the present and containers of cocaine. When you put your name in the hat by yourself, what can I do?

    This is really funny! In no other country of the world will the Cabinet of Ministers send a directive to the policing authorities in what amounts to practically a pleading tone, asking them to do their jobs properly and discharge their responsibilities conscientiously.

    You hit the nail on the head, this is the fact. but what the government doesn’t understand is that two wrongs doesn’t make a right, eventually this will come to bite them back, and when that happens, it will be too late.

    There is no history that evil triumphed. this people are only digging their own grave, only time will tell when this will happen.

    Hate speech against SAITM Medical degree with explosive language in public by GMOA leader, and hate action refusing court verdict of legally giving internship training by SLMC leader, has catapulted both leaders into courts for judiciary to correct their obnoxious behavior and reverse the injustice done to future generation of young doctors. They need to intern, register, practice, build the future of nation, and not be embroiled in hate speech. Malice and bitterness must depart.

    The New Hate Speech and Hate Crime Laws are not necessary at all. There is no widespread religious violence in Sri Lanka. Muslims tried to present a wrong impression about Sinhalese Buddhists to the world. There were a series of attacks, true, but even electrical fire incidents in Muslim shops were also added to hate crimes list. Many people came to conclusions based on assumptions. As the majority of the country is Sinhalese Buddhists these laws will reflect bad on entire Buddhist nation which is unfair and unreasonable. — The inefficiency and inaction of the Police should not be fallen on Buddhists and use it as a tool to bring in New Laws as if there is an uncontrollable situation in the country, which is false.—– The New Hate Crimes Law will actually divide religions more as the Buddhists will feel that it was brought only to punish them while the Government is actually covering up the involvement of Muslims.—– Moreover, this law will be used to suppress the voice of Sinhalese against Government’s many ceaseless acts against the will of the masses. For an example: There is every possibility that this Law will erroneously apply to any protests against ETCA, Sale of national assets and even Federal Constitution by the public and witch-hunt vociferous nationalist politicians. We Sinhalese Buddhist have a Democratic Right to make our voice heard. The attacks on Muslim shops, which are still mysterious to me, should not be used as a tool to suppress the voice of Sinhalese Buddhists. We all love a peaceful country. As long as the Government doesn’t use its tyrannical ways to go beyond the wishes of the majority citizenry, divide the country and sell our assets to foreigners, there will be peace. If there is tension, it is Government’s own doing.

    Our low life politicos still don’t get it,when they like helping Hambantota thief need to tell police to arrest criminals they expose themselves to ridicule by civilized countries.
    Independent police forces like nothing better than catching lying thieving politicians breaking the law and take special delight in pulling over their speeding autos?
    Western politicians would never dare to influence police force like our uneducated filth aided by weak police top brass.
    How long would Rajapaksas survive in civilized country with straight cops?
