CCTV Footage: Another Muslim-Owned Shop Torched In Maharagama

Another Muslim owned shop “Just for you”, a shoe store has been set ablaze just a kilometre away from the leather shop that came under petrol bomb attack in Wijerama junction less than twenty four hours before. CCTV footage obtained by Colombo Telegraph shows a lone man in a bicycle throwing a petrol bomb and running away. A strategy to drive the Muslims away from this Government is in full swing. Who is the architect of this strategy?

A shop in Maharagama came under a firebomb attack at around 2:20 am on 7th of June. None of the local media has reported this incident. There is strong suspicion that local media have been advised by the security forces not to highlight these attacks as the European Union and other diplomats have expressed their concern over the Government’s indifference, inability or lack of resolve to address the growing intolerance of minority communities by some Buddhist racist elements, including a few from the Buddhist clergy.

The Muslims who observe fast during this sacred month of Ramadan have been severely constrained in observing their religious rituals. The mosques all over the country have called upon Muslims to show total restraint as they believe that some forces are working to destabilize the country and force a regime change through cross overs in Parliament. The Muslim politicians have been advised by the Muslim religious and civil leadership to ensure that they stand united in defending the rights of Muslims to practice their religion without fear.

A Muslim youth who spoke to Colombo Telegraph on condition of anonymity expressed his disgust at the way the Government is continuing to ignore the numerous demands of the Muslim community to arrest the perpetrators of these crimes.

“we need to deal with our wheeler-dealing politicians and bring back a political culture which would ensure that our parliamentary representatives will first and foremost fight for the rights of the Muslims to live as equal citizens in this country while practicing our religion. Failure may drive our youth to extremism which would be disastrous to the country,”he further said,.

Another civil society activist from the evangelical Christian community said “Yahapalanaya did not stop the assault on the Christians even though there was a lull in the attacks against the Muslims. Now, the forces of evil have started their violent campaign once again targeting the Muslims, and there is strong suspicion that elements within the Government and the Joint Opposition have teamed up to cause this new wave of violence.” He further stated that “it is time the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner and the International Community took strong measures to stem this violence”.

    Sirisena who promised to take his Madu Waligaya for an innocent prank by a teenager girl when she threw her (spare) “brassiere” (presidential version basseere) at the pop artiste Enrique Iglesias failed to take the whip against arsonist and popular porn stars. Online media persons and activists claim that the authorities have blocked local media reports of the porn video of a once famous cricketer and a Sirisena women now married to a media mogul in action. The height of hypocrisy of blocking the former popular personality’s sexual escapades is similar to the governments attempt at censoring racial attacks. Sirisena needs to come out of the closet or allow someone capable to take care of racial violence.

    Well done Sinhalese…. you are gradually taunting, inviting and qualifying for the entry of ISIS into this country. Pirabakaran gave 30 years of bloodshed in this country for errors and failures that Sinhalese citizens and their leaders created in failing to solve grievances of Jaffna Tamils in amicable civilized manner, instead responding with State sponsored violence, arrogance and hegemony. If a repetition happens, this time with Muslims, I have no doubt Sinhalese will end up a taunted disgraced internationally (if it has already not happened) and a country similar or worse to Somalia. The decision lies with Sinhalese themselves.

      ” I have no doubt Sinhalese will end up a taunted disgraced internationally (if it has already not happened) and a country similar or worse to Somalia.”

      Somalia is 99% Muslim. So what you are really saying, if Sinhalese do nothing, the country will turn into Somalia. Yes. Why are all failed countries, with exception of Haiti, Muslim?

          Jews are intelligent, that is the difference. Where is the intelligence in someone who bends 5 times a day and chops the heads of innocent goats in the direction of Makkah? That is why Jews are wealthy and Muslims are on the list of Interpol Most Wanted. Why are you worried about Gnansara. No one likes Islam now, not even China. Trump won the election by bashing Muslims, now he is selling them weapons so they can kill each other. A long time ago a wise teacher told me the Universe tends towards disorder. Now we see the same is true for the Cult of The Head Choppers. Where will it end?

    I can not beleve this horrible scene.
    I thought Nugegoda, Maharagama are the areas of rathu sahotharayos like DJ, Dinesh, Wimal, Gaman, Vasu, Tissa. and Kurakkan Salwa Sahotharayos.
    They had very big rallies there with the sole aim of bringing down the elected Yahapalana Govt.
    It looks like they have resorted to the familiar arson, looting hoping for the periodical riots to recur.

    Where are Gnanasara & DJ ?

      This is what the attacking culprits want -. destabilise the Govt. It will not surprise anyone
      if Sinhala owned places are bombed at night by the same party behind the current attacks, as the Muslims are getting quieter by the day so that the blame of Muslim retaliation will be placed on imaginary ISIS forces. This may be a short-sighted political move. The repercussions are International and the Govt. of MS/RW are asking for it.

Most probably you are one of these western funded fake Christian groups ( praise the Lord raise the cloth ) preaching conmen who follow George Bush’s version of the bible and not the genuine version ( Dhouay Rheims ) Bible. There are enough of these fake so called praise the lord groups who should be kicked out together with their backers.

    Bodu Bala Sena, Gnanasara and Followers, seem to be practising the very opposite of The Buddha’s Teaching!

    The government was fully aware of these planned attacks ,they have had ppl share the Wattsup messages ,of the four places asking Muslims to close business or face burning down .Nugegoda,Navine , maharagane and Panadura. They also have hinted in one message ,after that they have one main place in col,then Kandy and east. A powerful Muslim minister close to PM was informed andceven all the Wattsup has been downloaded and sent ,why is he quiet?? When in opposition he use to make lot of noise.

    Minister Rajitha spoke well on the racial hatred ,according to the news item in the daily mirror , so let’s hope something will be done and justice given to the Muslim s.
    If Sirisena is sincere he should stop this menace and give peace to the Muslims who elected him ,otherwise he will have the same fate as the Rajapaksa and his cohorts. Though Rajapakksa s are free , are they really free from the nightmares they may be going through.

    Gnanasara who espoused these attacks, and whose face is by now well known to most Sri Lankans, has not yet been apprehended – though quite a few definitely do know his whereabouts.
    Police do have their informants, but these too are silent, or too terrified of consequences if they inform. Police too are apprehensive of reaction against them if they arrest Gnanasara and produce him in courts.
    Even if this happens, are there judges brave enough to examine evidence against him impartially, find him guilty, and sentence him?

    Hence these arson attacks will go on.

    This is a shame on this government which says it promotes ‘Buddhist values and way of life’.
    Muslim leaders and MPs must expose this state of affairs to the international community.

    Insurance scam!!!! Inside job!!! or It could be some unhappy customer or some unhappy business partner, Muslim businessmen are well known for their dodgy business practices. So called CCTV was held by some one with wobbly hands. Can’t the Muslim afford state of the art CCTV system??? —————————————————————————————————————————————————————- The truth is over the past 30 years Sri Lanka have been dangerously Muslimized. Muslims have been strategically settled in all over the island. Kuragala, Dewanagala, Digawapiya, Muhudu Maha Viharaya, Dabulla holy city, Anuradhapura holy city, Polonnnaruwa holy city, Maha Nuwara (Kandy) holy city, Kalutara holy city, Willpattuwa , etc, etc are all under Muslim invasion. ,—————————————————————————————————————————————————————– Record breaking drug importers are Muslims, record breaking tax evaders are Muslims, fraudulent land deeds and fraudulent birth certificates are produced in record numbers, terrorist breeding Madrasa are mushrooming all over the island All the Muslim shenanigans are barred from main stream media. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————Nobody knows the true numbers of Muslims in Sri Lanka. There are so many dirt poor homeless Muslims in Sri Lanka, where have they come from??? as we know Muslims are canny business community, so Muslims are a wealthy community in Sri Lanka, they don’t drink or gamble which is “Haram” in Islam. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————- Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives, Malaysia , Indonesia, etc were Buddhist countries. So far guardian monks have manage to keep Muslim menace away. Gnanasara thero makes sure Sri Lanka remain Buddhist country and free from Muslim terrorists.

    Dear Christian group ,although I agree that there are some religious NGOS who have brought extremist and racist elements from three different religions together ,it would be extremely wrong to generalize the entire Evangelical Churches as far as I know the established Born again will never ever stoop to such low levels , intact they ate standing by the Muslims today ,please get the facts right ,otherwise you may damage an innocent party , It is the NGOs you u need to either bring them under the Control of The Protestants Churches and monitor them or just pack them up .Sri Lanka is taking a huge risk ,all they need is China and India ,both Countries will educate Sri Lanka howvto deal with these NGOS. They no joke ,they ate deadly and can spark a civil war in minutes ,they are well equipped.

    Continued violence against peaceful innocent (and majority middle &Low income earners) Muslims in Sri Lanka ,will only give way for the like minded extremist to resort to violence against Buddhist Minorities in Muslin majority nations . The trend is disgusting ,neither parties who are in majority and who are resorting to terrorism in their countries have any love for their people , they get paid and then they go on a rampage .

    Tamils are patient and never forgiving ,they remember the final episode well and while Muslims took for granted that the war with Tamils was not connected to them ,The Tamils are clever they get the message ,this us a remainder for them ,indirectly using Muslim, but The Tamil will be back with more fire oneday.

    yet another media bliss of malicious muslims propaganda just like tamil diaspora did during and prior to ealam war.this may have big impact on GoSL but not any impact on west as west beginning to understand safe,form and mod of terrorism specially Islamic terrorism.

    Anyway minorities live here very jealous of rich culture and heritages and history of sinhalese though less than one percent of total world population as such minorities specially tamils and muslims want to erase out our culture and heritages and replaced it with their cultures like arabian primitive garbages. all the muslims politicians and clergy businessmen of muslims community behind that conspiracy. that is where main issue lays.

    if GoSL genuinely want to build trust and harmony. leaders should remove all muslims minister from their portfolios. ban some rituals of islam. make one law for all.. This is sinhalese country. minorities live here respecting that culture, heritages and religion.
