      “who instigated them?”

      The right question is who did create the atmosphere which was conducive for these Sinhala/Buddhist thugs to behave as they did.

      Someone somewhere said Sinhala/Buddhism is a way of life. You see Sinhala/Buddhism in action.

        Native, this is simple logic….The Rajapakses clearly know that the majority asses should be rejuvanated with some new and entertaining theme. The ”Tamil Ealeam” lie is no more effective to fool them continuously……wait and see….they’ll find a group Muslim Armed youth before the next general election.

          Yes I agree with you.

          They have great new and creative ideas for self destruction.

          Don’t confuse with Joseph Schumpeter’s creative destruction.

            Schumpeter’s gale !!? Yes. But,Joseph Schumpeter developed the concept out of a careful reading of Marx’s thought and to these guys luck seems to strike in their favour on their way of destruction. They seem very smart. Do you believe that they carefully read the mind of the mass ass !!?

      This is not the way forward in a democratic country , These thugs and their masters should be brought to justice. At the same time it must not be assumed that it is the Buddhists who are responsible .People can be lured into creating mayham for a fistful of dollars, before the CHOGM and Navi Pillays arrival. Maybe there will be many more of these unsavoury incidents to come before November.

        If you want them to be brought before the courts, so you should first try to impeach the most abusive president who allows every evil to take place in this country. He is not worth to stay live to this date. CBK was attacked, today the bugger has destroyed entire country and the nation. CBK handled matters not harming own folks. People of this country should rally round with opposition leaving all differences to send MR go home. If not, the curse on him should work to remove him from the position. Premadasa was not that bad to face the consequences, but I wonder why all might gods cant see it yet in terms of a criminal leader who has already moved beyond the records of polpot.

          If CBK and her politics were not the best – but current leader´s is thousand times worst. CBK did not deploy troops to settle protesters. She did not let criminals to breed to the manner MR is doing today. MR should be brought before HAGUE soon for his murderous acts against humanity. Ms Pillay will enter all these in her report by the end of the month: HR issues have gone up multiple times than the levels of them before the UN resolution. That alone is enough R2P to set the country free from the clutches of MR – perhaps to the very same manner the countrys forces leberated civil population that were under LTTE terror before May 2009.

        @Justice, Sorry it was my mistake. Actually that part is very important and should have included in the format.

        @Anura,

        “But please use your brain logically to find out WHY things will be unfolded like you predict”

        If you just see what happened in the past it is not difficult to predict the future. Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi used “Singhala Buddhism” to come to power and still using the same tactic to be in the power. Gaanu 5 Naanasara Bebabu Balu Sena, Rawana Balaya, Singhala Rawaya and all these “Jaathi Maamaka, Desha Maamaka balawega are the creation of Rajapakshas. unfortunately Majority Sinhala Buddhists are blindly following this path. This is how he is manipulating Buddhism and Sinhalese to be in power pretending that he is the sole custodian of “Singhala Buddism”

        This uneducated Dharmadveepa Chakrawarthi is doing everything to the country except ruling the country as President. Law and Order will not be applicable for “Ape Minissu” and you can do anything and get away.you have plenty of examples.

        This Madamulana Thug manipulated Judiciary system, Media, Police, Forces and all other Governing systems to his advantage using “Sinhala Buddhism” and selling “Jaathi Aalaya, Deshapremaya”

        He will not leave the power and will do everything possible to remain in the power. People has to get together and chase these uneducated thugs from the country.

    It is too obvious – the Muslims situation is frightfully slowly turning out to be like burma, with clear evidence , the police is being completely one sided , they can see clearly the goons have attacked a peaceful religious congregation & they have the guilty right in front of their eyes & without apprehending the culprits, they are reprimanding the Victims- can you imagine the future of this ruthless regime? set clearly for a total ruthless dictatorship, this is what they do, protect the criminals and shoot and kill the Victims, they Kill you if you ask for justice ,you ask for water you get bullets, you ask for the right to practice your religion in order to restrain oneself from evil and follow a right path, they reward the criminals and provide them protection and reprimand the victims..

    There is a God & there is retribution, time is not very far dear muslim brothers in faith ,let us pray to our father in heaven ,The one true God ,The God of Abraham , The God of yours & mine.

    Soon you will see his Justice , there will rain a rain of fire and meteorites to destroy this evil doers – they will be destroyed in the same way , the Pharos and rest were destroyed , so exercise restrainment until then..

    Your good work will not go waste.

      Benjamin Anthonio says; “The God of Abraham, The God of yours & mine.”

      However powerful the creator God has been we all know that he just couldn’t found peace even to Abraham’s truculent Hebrew tribe at the time. Jews continue to fight among themselves and other tribes. This creator God worried, fretted and even suckles in a uniquely human way. He worried for the most simple thing in a distractingly human way. Not only he killed cattle but little children as well.

      Tell us Anthonio, if the Jews God, Christian God and the Muslim God is one and the same, why do each one of them say they alone are going to heaven and condemn all others to eternal hell to burn for ever. And why Muslims started to kill Jews and Christians from the time of their prophet and continue it to date.

      If ‘God of Abraham’ is all that powerful, should he not have made his children (Jews, Christians and Muslims) attractive and likeable to each other.

      There will not be another Burma.Nobody of
      any esteem will agree with these atrocities.Neither will the educated and gentile Buddhists agree with the goons.These thugs can be bought for money.Mercenaries.Thats too high a title for these vermin.The U,S Embassy is serious.Its no joke.I always supported this government.I feel let down.Im a nobody,but I too have courage.Will stand by the Peaceful Muslims.I will take it upon myself to send reports to certain other countries.Pakistan,please stop sending aid to the Sri Lankan Government.This is an attempt at genocide.but they will not succeed.They will regret.The videos prove that the crowd was asked to remain calm.All responsible Buddhist brothers and sisters,take note and pressurise the perpetrators to stop this idiocy.hope all will be peaceful and law, order and human rights will be restored.Next to Chritianity,Islam is the second largest religious group.In the world.

        Have you noticed every time a pseudo leftist
        coalition comes to power,minorities get
        humiliated in some or other way?The difference
        this time is,the addition of yellow robes to
        take it to another higher level which even the
        next govt will be forced to ignore in order to
        remain in power.Don’t forget under Premadasa
        there was a sinister move to increase Sinhala
        population in Colombo by settling Sinhalese
        from outside in newly built housing projects.
        Remember how Muslims voted Premadasa from the
        bottom of the list to the top,pulling Faleel
        A Caffoor down?This is a well controlled
        operation unleashed against Muslims to stop
        them from furthering their financial growth.
        Mosques may be just pretexts.There may not be
        another Miyanmar in terms of genocide but
        already you are downgraded.Psychologically
        all non-Muslim Srilankans are trained to look
        at you differently and that’s an achievement
        for the racist.Look at it more closely.

      We all know who is behind this and we know we have the power to give a clear lessons to those who are behind this crimes. We need some courage to dare to encourage people to exercise their democratic right rationally against those irrational elements. We know politicians are shameless creatures who cannot understand the real values of the human beings. Rauf Hakeem is nothing better than any other politicians. He is another opportunistic creature. People have the opportunity to show their protest against these opportunistic and racist politicians. I am referring to the three provincial council elections where people can reject those elements democratically. Can we unite to save the nation from the hands of these criminals?

    I can smell blood. The root cause is the criminal mentalities of Rajapakses. I think these stupid politicians who got themselves elected/appointed in very fraudulent ways are creating communal disharmony for their political survival by tying to satisfy the majority. I too belong to the majority community but we have to consider all the Sri Lankans irrespective of their religion, caste, creed, political beliefs and their mother-tongue – AS SRI LANKANS for they are our own brothers and sisters. This could be the beginning of yet another uprising and Colombo’s canals could turn red. I have no doubts that all the peace-loving Sri Lankans would definitely condemn these attacks to the religious places of worship and also to the unarmed civilians who only ask for their basic needs – water and a place to live.

    We need to take this seriously , the problem with our brothers is they get too emotional and then everyone is screaming & no leadership is allowed & the whole scene gets messy & perpetrators take more advantage on the situation, It is time the entire Sri Lankan Muslims put their difference aside and meet up and take the matter to The President straight ,do not have any discussion with anyone except the President & if he wont guarantee protection & guarantee to take a military action on future attacks- then Muslims are doomed , and it will then be clear where we stand…..

      Qassim,

      Now read some world news and learn how many Muslims of different sect were killed when pious Muslims go on post prayer rampage after Eid Namaz in may parts of the world.

        Try not to let ignorance show. Sometimes bigotry prevents the mind of acquiring facts.

        It seems you are deliberately ignoring the violence in other religions too.

        Let Wikipedia enlighten you:

        Bruce Feiler writes that “Jews and Christians who smugly console themselves that Islam is the only violent religion are willfully ignoring their past. Nowhere is the struggle between faith and violence described more vividly, and with more stomach-turning details of ruthlessness, than in the Hebrew Bible”.[8] Similarly, Burggraeve and Vervenne describe the Old Testament as full of violence and evidence of both a violent society and a violent god. They write that, “(i)n numerous Old Testament texts the power and glory of Israel’s God is described in the language of violence.” They assert that more than one thousand passages refer to YHWH as acting violently or supporting the violence of humans and that more than one hundred passages involve divine commands to kill humans.[9]

        Now Myanmar has also shown SOME Buddhists can resort to violence too.

    These attacks can be stopped if Muslim religious leaders tell their people not to cooperate with the government.
    Muslim Ministers should tell the government that they will resign from the government unless culprits are arrested and brought before courts.
    Unless the Muslims unite and take united actions these attacks will continue.

      None of the Muslim ministers would have the guts to stand up to the regime. At least the Tamil politicians are doing something for their community sitting in the opposite side of politics. Even they sometimes make a voice for the plight of the Muslims.
      The day thugs were made parliamentarians the dignity of Sri Lanka lost itself. A known Pickpocket Leader in Bus stand became a Chief Minister of a Provincial council in Sri Lanka.
      The so called educated lot in both side of parliament should stand up against “thugs led political system”. Then only our country can get back to its decent past.
      Tamil militancy didn’t start with the killing of Durayappa. It started with the introduction of Sinhala only in 24 hours while the person introduced it sent his children for English education.Now its Buddhism only for the mass and no Buddhism for the political thugs and their henchmen.
      If nothing done very very sooner than later our beautiful country will go back to stone age. Hope the peace loving people of Sri Lanka mainly the real Buddhist get together lead others for a real change in our motherland.

        “None of the Muslim ministers would have the guts to stand up to the regime. “

        There is a precedent, when Tamils were mercilessly killed EPDP Douglas was a minister who did not object to the state’s brutality and LTTE Karuna was also close to the Mahinda regime.

          Dear Vedda
          Please read carefully my comments. I talk about the Tamil politicians who sit in the opposite side of politics not the ones who lick the bones thrown by the Brothers Inc.
          The whole idea of my article is not to create a debate to divide the intelligent readers of the Colombo telegraph. Rather it was aimed make an awareness. So that we can all make a change in our beautiful country having our diverse views.
          The Brothers Inc. is trying to fool us and rule us for at least another century. To negate that we have to unite and chase them. We can have our arguments but not fight. The fighting is what the brothers want. If they are real Buddhists, they wont horde and plunder the motherland like this. Go out in the streets if you live in Sri Lanka. The masses are suffering while a handful, loot the country and enjoy. Some of them have their Brains blown off, go to Singapore spend Millions – where did he get this money? a day and return home , worship the so called puppet ruler and the real De facto ruler and all of us including the ones in the main opposition accept this thug as a Member of our august assembly. This is what I say should be stopped. If we argue about what Islam Buddhism and any other religions did and not did we cannot achieve that peace in our land. So please get together for the sake of our beautiful country. Thank you.

      Muslim leaders like Hakeem – current minister of justice is a joke for the entire muslim nation. Had he been right, nothing would have gone to current appalling levels. That is the truth. He is just placed for the adavantage of the president (pal hora). Palhora has destroyed the nation, country, he will further destroy it using candidates like Dayawathie. People should wake up not to support Dayawathi to become CPM of Wayamba. He should be sent to apaya (hell). Greediness, selfishness should backfire him andhis political carrier.

    Look at some out of many, what Muslims did thro out the history.. yeah !! this is an insignificant thing compared to what Muslims did

    Ka’aba: The Ka’aba (the holiest shrine in Islam) was the first of many non-Muslim worship places to be forcibly converted into a mosque. It was originally a pagan place of worship, used by the polytheist Arabs before Muhammad’s followers subsequently removed and destroyed everything considered idolatrous while he recited verses from the Qur’an.

    The St. Nicholas Cathedral in Famagusta, Cyprus, was built between the 13th and 14th century AD. In August of 1571, Famagusta was conquered by the Ottoman Turks and the cathedral converted into the Lala Mustafa Pasha mosque, named after Vizier Lala Mustafa Pasha, the conquerer of Cyprus. Lala Mustafa Pasha had General and Governor Marcantonio Bragadin tortured to death after capitulisation of Famagusta. His officers were also killed.

    Al Aqsa

    The Al Aqsa mosque (Jerusalem/Israel) was build on the roof of the Christian St. Mary basilica on the Temple Mount where previously the Jewish Temple stood, which was destroyed by the romans in 70 AD.

    “Analysis of wooden beams and panels removed from the building during renovations in the 1930s shows they are made from Cedar of Lebanon and Cyprus. Radiocarbon dating indicates a large range of ages, some as old as 9th century BC, showing that some of the wood had previously been used in older buildings.”

    The Tomb of Joseph

    In October of 2000, Arabs (Palestinians) destroyed the Tomb of Joseph in Shechem (Nablus) and afterwards tried to convert it into a mosque.

    “Within hours, Joseph’s Tomb was reduced to a smoldering heap of rubble. Within two days, as an Associated Press dispatch reported, “the dome of the tomb was painted green and bulldozers were seen clearing the surrounding area,” as the Palestinian Arabs sought to transform the biblical Joseph’s resting place into a Moslem holy site.”

      lol. Did u even read what u posted. Just copying and pasting from anti Muslim sites. lol. Get a life.

      All religions have bad followers.

      You talk of Muslims as violent. Answer these.

      Did Muslims start world war 1 and 2 which cost 70 million lives?

      Did Muslims have a part in 6 million jews being killed?

      Did Muslims drop 2 nuclear on entirely civilian cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki which killed 200000 in seconds?

      Did Muslims take hundreds of thousands of Africans and sell them as slaves in America?

      Did Muslims kill 3 million Buddhists in Vietnam war?

      Did Muslims kill 2 million Koreans in Korean war?

      Learn some history.

      Muslims rule India for nearly 1000 years. If Islam was violent, Muslims could have easily converted all Indians by force but today 80% of India is Hindu. How come?

      Muslims rules Greece for 500 years?

      Muslims ruled Spain for 800 years?

      One thing I note is, only people who have no knowledge about history talk rubbish.

      Even if Muslims are violent, why are u judging any religion by its followers.

      I do not judge Buddhism by Burmese monks. Whatever monks do, I still respect Buddha. Please learn history.

        steel,you are not quite correct here.For 500 years(13th to 17th century) most of india was under muslim rule.During this time the mughal rulers(200 years) who were mongols converted to islam were quite tolerant of hindus,except the last one who was defeated by the hindus with the help of the french and british.

        The previous 500 years,from the 7th to the 12th century was a different story.Muslims who invaded were having as their main objective to spread islam.Fortunately for the hindus they ruled only parts of india,but forcibly converted hindus to islam.

        How do you think here are now 200 million pakistanis and 165 million bangladeshis and another 165 million muslims in india?

        Because the hindus fought back and kept the muslims to certain areas only they were able to retain their religion.Even when the muslims ruled the whole country whenever they tried to destroy hinduism the hindus fought back and therefore the muslims had to live and let live in order to rule.However many muslim rulers destroyed thousands of hindu temples and forcibly converted people,and put to death millions who refused to become muslim.

        There is no doubt that if the hindus had passively allowed the spread of islam then all indians would now be muslims.

        The muslim invaders felt it was their religious duty to either convert the hindus or put them to death except for some like the mughal Akbar the great who never followed the teachings of the koran to the letter.Hinduism survived because of the fightback by the hindus.Same applied to greece and spain that you mention.Wherever possible they would have tried to convert,but when they find that they can’t rule if they are intolerant of christianity they had no option but to tolerate it.

        For example when the british ruled us if they had tried to use force to convert then there would have been a lot of uprisings and they would have found it difficult to rule.That is what happened to the portuguese who tried to forcibly convert and had to give up their rule to the dutch.You are mistaken in your belief that rulers are tolerant of other religions.They are not,but sometimes they have no option but to tolerate unless they want to be kicked out because their subjects will lose their tolerance too after a certain point.

      BEFORE ISLAM WAS BORN BUDDHISM REPLACED HINDUISM/SHAMANISM/ANIMISM THE ANCIENT TRADITIONS OF THE SUB CONTINENT (AS WELL AS THE ISLAND)

      BUDDHIST MONGOLS BOUGHT THE DOWNFALL OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD, BENEFITING THE EUROPEAN RENEISANCE COLONIZATION & EXPANSION

      YES MUSLIMS HAVE BEEN VIOLENT IN HISTORY, SO TOO BUDDHISTS
      IF NOT FOR THE EUROPEANS, THE WHOLE OF INDIA AS WELL AS SL WOULD VERY LIKELY HAVE BEEN RULED BY MUSLIMS.

      SL MUSLIMS SUPPORTED THE WRONG LOT, BECAME RICH, NOT NECESSARILY EXPLOITING THE CIVIL WAR, NOW SOME OF US ARE JEALOUS (NOT THE FIRST TIME) & THE MUSLIMS WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR THEIR CHOICE, THEY HAVE BEEN BLUFFED.

    Arab spring teaches many lessons and the important one is the power of social media i.e. FB, twitter, etc.
    let us use such resources to circulate these video clips and other photos around middle eastern and other Arab countries without depending on (pi)MPs like Rauf Hakeem or other (pi)MPs to carry our grievances and losses to the Islamic world.
    Being Sri Lankan and why do we have to carry these happenings to the middle eastern and Arab countries? The reason is that the GoSL has been unfair to the minority on such incidents. The revenues that flows in to Sri Lanka is mainly from middle eastern and Arab countries as well as the support from Arab countries at the UN council was the grip for GoSL. Therefore, GoSL should understand that underestimating the minority do have consequences and moreover, the cries of the Muslims will be heard louder than the others.
    As responsible Muslims let us do our part and let us not depend on those (pi)MPs

      My foot Middle East and Arabs will not give a s**t of any other Muslims other than an Arab. don’t me a fool and ask any Muslim from the sub continent who have worked in the Middle East.

      What the Sri Lanakan muslims can do is to kick the womanizer Hakeem and the gang kissing the ass of the MARA and rally round a leader like Ashraff.

      Then only MARA will see the minority power, It is a shame that someone like Sampanthan or Sumanathiran have to talk on behalf of Muslims in the parliament and all these Hakeems/Azwers/Musthafas and Kabirs just act like they have no idea what is the issues with Muslims.

    SL needs to get down Mossad to stop these racists attacking Sinhala people’s houses.

    This is NOT acceptable.

    The war left 89,000 Tamil war widows.
    If another war starts it will leave 356,000 Muslim war widows (it is legal to marry up to 4 women for Muslims).

    Just because some Buddhist maniacs attacked a mosque, Muslims have no right to attack Sinhala houses.

    We all know who won the war and who cried genocide. So don’t push your luck. Next Indian BJP government will not tolerate this extremism either. Needless to say about he US government!

    @Matilda Ellepola – am in agreement on most of what you say-but I vehemently condemn your statements like referring to hakeem as a womanizer – do you have proof? black and white evidence ? can you produce it now or how much time do you want to post the link on this forum? do not slander someone and character assassinate without valid proof, & for your information you are playing with a lawyer ,he can if he wants any given time, get a Court order and hunt you down like a hunting an animal and pin you down with the extra support of the government too & sue your ass out of shape,, so be careful when you pour out your emotions, yes I am too mad with the guy , but you must be reasonable, and besides ,dare not compare a Gentleman of whom you have no knowledge at all -Hon.kabir Hashim,if you meet him and talk to him for few minutes you will be ashamed of yourself, his humbleness & his brilliance will shock you…

    My question is….
    Why the construction of the disputed Mosque was not prevented in the initial stages?Why did not the Urban development authority initiate any action?They could have got an injunction order from the courts.So the matter could have been argued in the courts and a decision taken accordingly.
    It is true Islam is basically an intolerant religion.The Muslims benefited immensely from the thirty year war.Whatever the outcome the Muslims will have to hang on with any government for their survivel.Afterall the Thamils and muslims are sworn enemies,not the Sinhalese and Muslims.

    THE BELLS OF THE BUDDHIST TEMPLE AT GRANDPASS TOLLED, NOT IN THIS OCCASION AS A CALL TO PIOUS BUDDHISTS FOR MEDITATION UNDER THE SACRED BOA TREE BUT TO RALLY TO ATTACK THE PLACE OF WORSHIP, THE MOSQUE OF ANOTHER FAITH.

    BUDDHIST MONKS, WHO PREACH THE PEACEFUL MESSAGES OF LORD BUDDHA, IN THIS OCCASION LED A MOB OF THUGS NOT TO TAME THEM AND INSTILL THE MESSAGE PEACE IN THEIR MINDS BUT TO MAKE THEM MORE VIOLENT AND TO ATTACK ANOTHER PLACE OF WORSHIP, THE MOSQUE OF ANOTHER FAITH.

    All this violence must be condemned unreservedly. What happened to the well organized crowd control by the riot police which we saw in the past? The few policemen who were present were pathetically ineffective. They seemed so lacking in influence, no one was bothered whether they were there or not!

    All the Muslims in Sri Lanka must make up their minds now to not vote for Mahinda Rajapaksa and the P.A. at any and all future elections, nor for those parliamentarians who failed to even speak out on their behalf. As expressed previously, the incumbent government’s impunity is indicative of it’s disdain for the muslim votes, which may be because there will be no more elections in Sri Lanka, “in the national interest”! Or the ‘jillmart’ has now been perfected!

    I hope the Muslims of Sri Lanka stay strong and hang in there. The Sri Lankan Muslims will be vindicated by staying true to their values in the Far East. Please continue to get the word out and stay above the fray. It is hard to peacefully oppose the government, but you have some powerful voices. Remember the words of M.A. Sumanthiran, “For if we are all connected, we will be united in grief, and when justice comes, united in victory.” Justice will come. Please get behind the opposition and make it strong. I obviously am partial, but M.A. Sumanthiran speaks for all Sri Lankans including Tamils, Muslims and Buddhists. Please get behind him in his effort to unify the nation under the rule of law and democracy.

    RESPOND TO THIS:

    The new mosque in Grandpass is a warehouse.
    Posted on August 12th, 2013
    Leela
    An authorization letter or the so-called permit for Grand pas mosque is dated 8th Aug 2013. But building of the mosque had been completed long before that date. That means building work for the mosque must have begun without authorization. We can assume from the date of the permit that its issuance may have done in hush hush and a rash manner. Why do we say that?

    Local Buddhists say, the building in depute is located on Swarna Chaitya Road where an old mosque is also located. And its construction work had been started in 2010 not as a mosque but as a warehouse. When monks and local Buddhists realized the purported warehouse is a mosque, they not only objected to it but also have lodged many written complaints at the local police station.

    With political push by Muslim politicians, work on the building was completed about one and a half months back. And the Wahhabi dominated ACJU got ready to open a mosque which they have been disguised as a warehouse all this time. But Maulovi in charge had no permit to use the building as a mosque even at that date.

    Annoyed for being conned, local Buddhists backed by Sinhala Buddhist organizations protested strongly to the opening of the unauthorized mosque. When the police at Grandpass summoned them for an inquiry both parties have jointly agreed to close building until a legal remedy is found.

    However, considering the on going Ramadan festival of Muslims, the Buddhist party is said to have agreed with Muslims for them to use the warehouse building for prayers until the 10th of August. In fact, a written agreement was prepared and signed by both parties with a senior police officer signing as a witness. And police guard had been provided to the temporary mosque to maintain peace and order in the area.

    Needless to say, when two parties signed an agreement, both parties are expected to adhere to its terms. Buddhists who signed the agreement didn’t know that Muslims are thought by Muslim scholars to be truthful to each other but no need to be truthful with non believers. Buddhist should have known that Koran 2:225 says, “Allah will not call you to account for thoughtlessness in your oaths, but for the intention in your hearts” Although the context of this remark is marriage, when you read the Koran verse 16:106 that says, there are circumstances that can ‘compel’ a Muslim to tell a lie, it is obvious that Muslims cannot be trusted on agreements. Events that followed the said agreement is a good example for this maxim.

    Thereafter, strange events said to have taken place behind the backs of the Buddhist party that signed the agreement. Muslim politicians put their differences aside and started to work hard to organize a sting operation. As a result, the so-called permit sprang up from the Buddha Sasana and religious affairs ministry like a rabbit from a magician’s hat. I wonder whether the Prime Minister who is in charge of that ministry knew this latest conspiracy by Muslims against Sinhala Buddhists.

    Anyway, On the agreed date for the closure of the mosque, Aug 10th, the police called on the relevant Moulavi and asked him to close mosque as otherwise it would be difficult to prevail peace in the area. It is said, the Moulavi had then produced the aforementioned permit and asserted to police that mosque need not be closed for they now have a permit. In effect Moulavi has made the agreement irrelevant.

    When the temple received the so-called ‘permit letter’ in the evening, monks rang the temple bells and congregated dayakaya and informed them of the latest situation. And the congregation said to have felt conned and decided to take law in to their own hands and demolish the mosque then and there. And the subsequent mayhem left several civilians and police injured. But there were no serious injuries let alone deaths.

    During this Ramadan, we have learned that Muslim jihadis have killed several hundreds of Muslims of opposing sects the world over. Imagine the numbers that must have been maimed at those blasts. But for BBC, Al Jazeera and et al none of those deaths mattered. Even today, their interest lay in our mosque dispute that no deaths but few minor injuries. So is for Colombo Telegraph wrote more than ten separate write-ups.

    Anyway, when the situation got boisterous between Buddhists and Muslims an official from permit issuing ministry came to the seen and withdrew the permit and people started to disperse and calm prevailed.

    In the end, all parties agreed that Muslims should revert to their old mosque located at 166 along the same road for praying.

    Now that the hullabaloo is amicably settled, we can expect that BBC and their partners are not happy. Lets see who and who are disappointed in Sri Lanka.
