Child Jihadis: Boys And Girls

At the juvenile detention centre in Kandahar there are two sets of children. The first are riotous and loud, arrested for theft and other crimes of that sort. When you give them a piece of paper and ask them to write down the reason they are in prison they simply scratch lines into the paper or scrunch it up. They can’t write. The second group are silent. But when they take the sheet of paper they begin to write the most beautiful script, their sentences full of fire and argument. These are the child jihadis and their mothers tell them they will succeed next time.

    Most Afghans are forced to back Talibans. And it is Talibans that had dynamited the Bahamian Buddhas. And Talibans follow the Wahhabi interpretation of the Korans. And Bin Ladden and Mullah Omar, ex Taliban leader are Wahhabis.

    Muslims in Sri Lanka breed like rabbits. I have no doubt that most of these coming up offspring will be same as Afgan jihadis for ACJU and their madrases spread Wahhabism at a faster rate than said offspring.

      Firebrand imam arrested after Eid sermon
      Last updated: Friday, August 16, 2013 12:28 AM

      Saudi Gazette report

      RIYADH — The imam of a Riyadh mosque has been arrested for allegedly encouraging young men to carry arms and go wage jihad in war-torn areas during his Eid Al-Fitr sermon, Al-Hayat newspaper reported Thursday.

      The newspaper did not name the imam but said he delivered his sermon at Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdul Wahab Mosque in Al-Salam district of east Riyadh.

      The Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Dawa and Guidance has moved in quickly to suspend the imam, who also called for the release of a Saudi woman terrorist nicknamed the “Al-Qaeda Lady”, who has been jailed on charges of supporting terrorists.

      The ministry’s Undersecretary for Mosque Affairs Dr. Tawfiq Al-Sudairy described the imam’s actions as “unacceptable” because he violated Islamic norms in his sermon.

      He said the ministry has suspended him from leading prayers or delivering sermons and added that further punitive measures would be taken against him.

        How could any one with an iota of a brain compare ‘Taliban’ to ‘BBS’ when Taliban is full of jihadi terrorists who kill and blast people on daily basis whereas BBS has not killed anyone anywhere to date.

        To you and Wahhabis and Salafists like you Buddhism may be evil, but for us its a serene dhamma.

          I am no Muslim, Buddhist,

          It is all a matter of DEGREE only, but still CRIMINAL Activity, based om Myths.

          The Bo Tree is sacred because it is a tree, over 475 million years old, Not because Buddha happened to meditate under the Bo tree. Where did Buddha sit? On Earth. It is older, 3.8 Billion years old and more sacred.

          BBS is fighting over trees. This is precisely what happens when you believe in MYTHS. Trees, Stones etc. without a proper basis? Do tress achieve Nirvana? Go to Heaven?

          http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/life

          The history of life on Earth began about 3.8 billion years ago, during the Archean era, initially with single-celled prokaryotic cells, such as bacteria. Multicellular life evolved over a billion years later and it’s only in the last 570 million years that the kind of life forms we are familiar with began to evolve, starting with arthropods, followed by fish 530 million years ago (Ma), land plants 475Ma and forests 385Ma. Mammals didn’t evolve until 200Ma and our own species, Homo sapiens, only 200,000 years ago. So humans have been around for a mere 0.004% of the Earth’s history.

          Animism for 50,000 years
          Hinduism for 4,000 years
          Judaism for 3,000 years
          Buddhism for 2,500 years.
          Christianity for 2,000 years
          Islam for 1,400 years
          Sikhism for 500 years.

          Whether BBS does is a ‘CRIMINAL Activity’ or a ‘good deed’ depends on the relative standing of the observer. It is obvious that whatever is good for me is bad for you because your outlook is different to me. So, I can just visualize your thinking about the ‘Bo Tree’.

          Not just sit, we all stand on earth since birth. So, Buddhists doesn’t deny Buddha sat on the earth. What Buddhists emphasize is, Buddha was grateful to ‘Bo Tree’ for it gave the shade for him to meditate for six long years. And all we too worship the ‘Bo Tree’ for the same reason. So, the question of the age of the ‘Bo Tree’ doesn’t matter here. It is out of context.

          Muslims in general have a different outlook to that of the Buddhists. That I understood when I read the Koran and Hadith. Muslims hate idols. Some Muslims hate idols more than others. For example, during the last ten years, Wahhabis and Salafists have destroyed Muslim monuments whereas Sufis and Ahamadis preserved them. We’ve seen Wahhabis demolishing monuments such as burial sites, homes and historical locations that were associated with prophet Muhammad in Mecca and Medina. Taking a cue from such vandalism, I am sure you Jihadi Amarasiri have come up with stupid arguments to look down upon our veneration of the the Bo Tree.

          BBS is not fighting over just one Bo Tree. They are fighting to save all that is gifted by the nature. Koran tells us that Allah had created everything and for the benefit of the man. We do not believe that. So, the Koran degrade us as animals. Koran doesn’t give us the right to think and to believe what we think is right. And Wahhabis, Salafits have interpreted the Koran to justify the use of Jihadis to kill and induce fear to force Kuranic mythical premise upon everyone.

          The beginning and the timeline of ‘everything’ that Science projects is just a premise. It is not proven. Sitting in his wheelchair Hawkins ha been visualizing incessantly ways to prove the existence of the singularity before the Big Bang. But he is growing old without a unified theory to prove it.

          The Buddha said, ‘nothing last for ever’. And that premise stands arguably true to date. Buddha also said his Dhamma is not to find the beginning of the cosmos but about four noble truths and the path to seek that truth. But it is not forced upon anyone. Buddhists do not oppose discussion and logical arguments on their beliefs, indeed they willingly do so in various blogs and threads.

          Even if he tries, I bet Amarasiri wouldn’t understand Buddha Dhamma. It’s too complex for him.

        AMARASIRI

        READ THIS:

        The senior Vatican official Monsignor Nunzio “Don 500” Scarano certainly did – at least two of them, which, prosecutors say, he used to smuggle €20m (£17.3m) into Italy from Switzerland, and to launder money used to buy a €1.7m luxury flat in Salerno.

        Don 500 – so named because of his tendency to dish money around in the form of €500 notes, the criminal’s favourite denomination – can’t be dismissed as an isolated case. Two years ago there was the affair of Evaristo “Don Bancomat” Biasini, an official working for the Congregation of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood, who was accused of shady financial dealings in the construction sector.

        Most damaging for the Vatican is the role that its own bank, the IOR (Institute for Religious Works), may have played in these affairs. In the case of Mgr Scarano, investigators are in no doubt he used his two IOR accounts like overseas slush funds. Records show that on one occasion last year Mgr Scarano withdrew €560,000 from an IOR account in a single transaction. He is currently in the Regina Coeli prison, awaiting trial. On Friday the Vatican announced it had frozen his assets and warned that other people may be caught up in the investigation.

          Top 10 most Evil Popes in History: Criminal Catholic Church Exposed

          Published on Dec 27, 2012

          The Vatican is being exposed for what it is: The most criminal organization in existence. The crimes that they have managed to commit against humanity for 2000 years via its criminal priests, nuns, and evil religious leaders are now being discovered worldwide, as it is written that any day now, the Catholic Church will go up in flames and be destroyed forever, as it is the mother of all abominations on Earth.

          The Protect Your Children Foundation is documenting and exposing all of its crimes worldwide, alerting entire nations of the dangers that the Catholic Church poses to our children in our communities, as they have been implementing crime schemes of rape, torture, starvation, human experiments, abuse, exploitation and more in its religious institutions, while claiming to ‘help children’. The Vatican has utilized its false appearance of mercy, claiming they are representatives of Christ, when in fact, they do this to gain trust and commit crimes. For more info, visit:

          Secret Files of the Inquisition – Pt1 (The Land Of Terror)

          Published on Apr 9, 2013
          Secret Files of the Inquisition (2006), part 1 of 4

          Information:

          For centuries, the historical records of the Inquisition have been locked away to become the subject of myth and legend. In 1998, after years of pressure from historians, scholars and critics in search of the truth, the Vatican opened some of these archives for the first time.

          $3-million-plus international co-production was filmed in High Definition on location in Italy, France and Spain. It was produced and directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker David Rabinovitch, and features narration by actor Colm Feore (Trudeau).

          This four-part series attempts to reveal the incredible yet true story of the western world’s most potent religion and its determination to maintain power at any cost. Using previously secret documents, this series reveals how the most powerful church on earth created the Inquisition to preserve the unquestioned authority of the Pope. Interviews with church and secular historians as well as dramatic recreations convey how a system of mass terror reigned for over half a millennium.

          Filmed in High Definition, this production spans medieval France in Episode 1, 15th century Spain in Episode 2, Renaissance Italy in Episode 3 and mid-nineteenth century Europe in Episode 4.

          Secret Files of the Inquisition – Pt1 (The Land Of Terror)

          France 1308 – The Church of Rome proclaims it’s self the one true religion, but heresy takes hold and the pope declares a holy war against other Christian followers. Inquisitors are sent to exterminate the heresies by hunting down the condemning believers to burn at the stake. 1308 the entire village of Montaillou is taken prisoner of the Inquisition. No one is safe – not even the village priest and the chatelaine of its castle. From the secret files – the extraordinary revelations of village life under the Inquisition are revealed.

        Wahabism is the truest form of Islam.

        SL government should invite Wahabis to SL to teach local Muslims true Islam and convert them to Wahabism. They will pay good money to the ministers for allowing them in.

        Allah’s (PBUH) word is written in Holy Quran as he wanted it. No one can give a different interpretation to what the words mean.

        I beg the SL government to allow Wahabis into the island. They will not harm the Buddhists, Hindus, Christians. They will only correct misled Muslims.

          Fatima Furzana,

          “Wahabism is the truest form of Islam.”

          Wahabism is the truest form of Satanism, or Shaitanism.

          http://www.yanabi.com/index.php?/topic/426240-conversation-between-a-wahabisalafi-and-shaitan-satan

          Assalamo Alaikum, I met a real lover of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He pointed out some common beliefs between Shaitan and Wahabi. I have documented those beliefs. Here is the;
          Conversation Between Satan and a Wahabi

          Shaitan (Satan, Iblees) met an apparent Muslim who in fact was a follower of Wahabi sect. Here is their conversation.

          Satan: Do you believe in Allah?
          Wahabi: Yes, Alhamdulillah. I strongly believe in Allah.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you make shirk with Allah? (Associating anyone in the worshiping of Allah)
          Wahabi: NEVER.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you show respect towards Prophet? (i.e. Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him)
          Wahabi: I only respect Allah.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you believe in the Messenger of Allah?
          Wahabi: Yes, but He is now dead. Allah is alive.
          Satan: Thanks. I am glad you said that he is dead.

          Satan: So, you do not believe Muhammad is alive in his grave? (peace be upon him)
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you praise the Prophet of your religion.
          Wahabi: I only praise Allah.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you visit his Rawdha (i.e. the holy grave) in Madinah?
          Wahabi: What Rawdha? I visit mosque only.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you celebrate your Prophet’s birthday?
          Wahabi: NEVER. I hate it.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you visit the Mazarat (holy shrines) of Aulia Allah?
          Wahabi: NEVER
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you celebrate “urs”.
          Wahabi: NEVER
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you offer Fateha for the deceased Muslims?
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you do Giyarween Sharif?
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you stand up during salutations on Muhammad? (peace upon him).
          Wahabi: NEVER
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you show respect towards Aulia Allah?
          Wahabi: No. I respect Allah only.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you read Naat? (poetry to praise prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him).
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you worship on the night of Lailatul Bra’at? (Shab-e-Barat)
          Wahabi: No
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you worship on the night of Al Asra wal Me’raj?
          Wahabi: No
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you believe in Shafa’at (intercession)?
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you believe in Tawassul (Waseelah)?
          Wahabi: No
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you seek blessings from the relics (Tabarrukat) of Messengers of Allah and Aulia Allah?
          Wahabi: No
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you believe in Istighasa from Prophets of Allah and the Aulia Allah?
          Wahabi: NEVER EVER.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: If you get an opportunity to kiss the Rawdha (golden grill) of Muhammad. Will you do that? (peace be upon him).
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you kiss Qur’an just to show your respect?
          Wahabi: No.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: Do you start Ramadan and Eid based upon the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad? (peace upon him)
          Wahabi: No. I follow Saudi announcement.
          Satan: Me too.

          Satan: I am shocked. We have the same beliefs. Why I am a Satan and you are still a Muslim?
          Wahabi: I don’t know.

          May Allah save Islam from the evil of Wahabism. Ameen.

            Mr.Amarasiri, your references have got you some critical points, probably from an Ahmadi’ perspective:

            1. Do you visit the Mazarat (holy shrines) of Aulia Allah?

            Shrine worshipping or intercessors (living or dead to dust) between a god adoring person is not in accord to the concepts in the Semitic religions other than man himself making innovations to the comfort of his own mind.

            2. Do you show respect towards Prophet? (i.e. Prophet Muhammad, peace upon him)

            Muhammad himself mentioned like the Gautama Buddha, I am merely a man of flesh and bones do not worship nor praise me in your invocations.

            3. If you get an opportunity to kiss the Rawdha (golden fence) covered of Muhammad’s grave. Will you do that?

            There’s no goodness associated in kissing a grill or the black stone with reverence, whereas the stone or the grill or the burial place of Muhammad will not intercede between your faith, the goodwill nor transgressions. So, whomever does it are doing innovations to appease their own souls, and cannot be justified as virtues of Islam.

            4. Do you worship on the night of Lailatul Bra’at? (Shab-e-Barat)

            Lailat Al Bara’at – Sunnis (including your so called Wahhabis) observe in Mid-Sha’ban where there are 5 nights when dua (prayer) is answered, one of them being the night of the 15th of Sha`ban as a night of worship and salvation.

            5. Do you worship on the night of Al Isra wa Al Me’raj?

            – It was the day of Declaration of the universality of Islam
            – Warning the Kuffar (who detested Gods message) of the imminent punishment
            – The twelve commandments:

            Not to commit shirk (associate partners to God)
            Kindness to parents
            Respect others rights
            Avoid spend thriftiness
            Do not kill your children
            Do not commit adultery
            Do not kill
            Be kind to orphans
            Fulfill your promise
            Be fair in your dealings
            Do not be suspicious of others
            Do not be arrogant
            Prelude to Hijrah
            The obligatory five prayers

            While no celebrations takes place on this day Sunni Muslims will choose to fast and offer optional prayers (unto one’s own wish) into the late night.

            6. Do you believe in Shafa’at (intercession)?
            Intercession is like associating partners equal to God, and will lead to a state of disbelief in limbo.

            7. Do you believe in Tawassul?
            The view that Tawassul through dead persons, virtuous or not, leads to Shirk (polytheism). The Salafi movement considers it unlawful to make Tawassul through those that are no longer alive — including prophets and saints (not even Muhammad).

            But the Shia believe it is permissible to perform Tawassul through Muhammad, his family, the Prophets, and pious believers.

            8. Do you seek blessings from the relics (Tabarrukat) of Messengers of Allah and Aulia Allah?

            It has been the practice of the some delusional people to show utmost respect to preserve Tabarukaat (Islamic Relics) [although none exists]. The word “Tabarruk” does mean ‘Blessings’ to show respect and veneration of Islamic Relics, to gain blessings from them, to utilize them as a means for gaining victory, or keep them near at the time of problems, or during any illness, or to steer away hardships, was and is an ill conceived practice which does show but ignorance within mankind’s selfishness and stupidity.

            9. Do you believe in Istighasa from Prophets of Allah and the Aulia Allah?

            Istighasa – Supplication and invoking aid from dead souls (let it be bygone prophets or domesticated animals) cannot be associated to a Godly worship but shamanism.

            10. Do you kiss Qur’an just to show your respect?

            Indeed it is worthy of respect, but reading it with a clear vision and wisdom to abide by it’s content is much worthier than a thousand kisses.

            11. Do you start Ramadan and Eid based upon the Hadith of Prophet Muhammad?

            The rule is – Abide by the law of your brethren when in congregation unless it breaches the the fundamentals of Islam. Otherwise, your are free to choose in your own will whenever you want to fast or to break-fast.

            Please note: In real sense a healthy conversation between a Wahhabi (Sunni Muslim) and Satan isn’t feasible, thus it cannot be justified even if Justinian or Rushdie quote their own dialogues within a vivacious play.

              Weeny Wee,

              Thanks for your details and footnotes from the Wahhabi, Salafi and Deobandi perspective.

              Still, no facts or data to support one version or the other, and still based only on belief and no support.

              So, no change in the real facts.

              The Earth Still goes around the Sun the way it was doing for several billion years, despite claims to the contrary in the Bible, old testament and Joshua stopping the Sun etc.

          Fathima,
          You are talking about the goodness of Wahhabis. If you wanted to learn the truth just google ‘Sufi saint Sheihul Mufliheen M.S.M Abdullah (Rah)’ and learn what ACJU Wahhabi thugs had done to him and his followers. Learn how Wahhabi thugs had dug his body and burned over 127 houses of his followers and vandalized minerates of Sufi mosques. If such Wahhabi acts is true Islam, what can I say? Wahhabis are a curse not just to you Muslims but for we Buddhits as well. They are the curse for all these troubles.

          Is Furzana a correctly spelled name of a Wahhabi? Guard against what you haste in speech and action, for you will regret in a latter time. Abdul Wahhab could haven been an abiding Muslim but cannot be regarded in par with the classical scholars of the past. So, keep your justification within the realms of your creed.

          Fathima Furzana

          It is obvious that you are not a Muslim because you have used the abbreviation PBUH (Peace be upon him) after the name of Allah. This alone is sufficient to show that you nare not a Muslim. Because any Muslim with the very very basic understanding of Islam will know the difference between Allah and His prophet. The post script of “Peace be upon him” is only applicable to the prophet and any body who confuses the issue is obviously not a Muslim.

          The tenor of your writing is an additional evidence.

            Thanks for pointing this out.

            So Fatima Furzana must be an Avatar of one of the other versions.

            Humans, do make errors. So, may be this is call for her, Fatima, to become a Muslim, just like how Angulimala became a Buddhist.

        What is wrong with Wahabism. How does it threaten other Muslims like Thowheed Jamat etc. I am asking this question from Muslims, not as a challenge but to get to know as to why most of the persons writing to CT are anti Wahabism. Is Thowheed group anti or for Wahabism.

        Thanks

          Salmaj,

          What is wrong with Wahhabism, Salafism and Deobandism?

          1. They are not Muslims. They follow the Satan, Shaitan.

          2. They do not allow for the free practice of Religion allowed in the Quran.

          3. The do not provide proof that their their version of Satan inspired Wahhabism is true.

          4. They love death more than life. They want o be closer to Satan, not to God, Allah Subbhana Wa-Ata Allah.

          Wahabism is the truest form of Satanism, or Shaitanism.

    It is sad that the innocent people in Afghanistan have to suffer the consequences of having extremists within their nation, and the years of attack and war from the US and other nations. Thousands have lost their lives, been displaced, and suffer the consequences of caught between two violent groups, and no one, not even their leader, a puppet of the US, cares about the horrible violence that is unstoppable.
    The first two comments here are a typical example of Islamaphobia. The article clearly gives us a child’s impression of war, horror, and death, and yet, the commenters have attacked a religion. Note they do not condemn the attackers of their nation, their deadly weapons, nor the unnecessary deaths, instead the comments are against Muslims.

    Wikipedia on Islamaphobia:

    Islamophobia is prejudice against, hatred towards, irrational fear of, or racism[1] towards Muslims.[2][3][4]
    In 1997, the British Runnymede Trust defined Islamophobia as the “dread or hatred of Islam and therefore, [the] fear and dislike of all Muslims,” stating that it also refers to the practice of discriminating against Muslims by excluding them from the economic, social, and public life of the nation. The concept also encompasses the opinions that Islam has no values in common with other cultures, is inferior to the West and is a violent political ideology rather than a religion.[5]

    That describes the above comments.

      Muslims are trying to play the “Islamophobia” card to accuse anyone who criticizes Islam or Muslims as bigots. Muslim apologists like you want to tear down secularism that we cherish. You guys suppress warranted criticism of your faith. You talk about discrimination against Muslims but never talk about Muslims discriminating others. You talk of the need for a multi-religious country but we are having to deal with Muslims trying to enforce gender segregation on this free lands. These are just some of the suspicions and fears that many people have who are weary of the growing presence of Islam.

        So far Muslims are not using Islamphobia like the Jews use the antisemitic card (even when Israel is being criticized), so your point is lame.

        Read Wikipedia on incidents, they are ALL FACTS well documented, not Muslims making up incidences or stories. You seem ignorant of these facts, or else you would not make such a meaningless comment. Google Islamaphobia is on the rise, and you can see it is happening in many parts of the world. Get smart, comments like yours simply prove my point.

    Islam is the best religion for spiritual purposes and a way of life. It looks as being hijacked by jihadists or talebanis as you may call them, yet it has become the fastest growing religion in USA, UK, Europe and the rest of the world. The enemies of Islam have got so frightened, they throw every sort of accusation and insults in a desperate attempt to stop this trend. MOST Sri Lankan Muslims do not support extremism and they mind their own business despite numerous provocations by Safron Terrorists and their followers who want to insult and harm Muslims for no reason. Muslims should continue to ignore such idiots and keep praying for peace for all in the country. Allah alone is enough to protect them.

        Allow me to correct you brother. Allah did not WRITE the Quran, neither Prophet Mohammed wrote it. The Quran was ‘revealed’ to Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him) who was illiterate through ‘Wahi’ (I could not find the exact translation for this word)it was whispered into his ears by Archangel Gabriel, as dictated by Allah, word by word, verse by verse for 23 years. What the Prophet repeated by mouth was written down by his companions (Sahabas) and was compiled into a book form in the later years. Difficult to believe is it? The verses were memorised by the sahabas and the Prophet made sure every word was correctly recorded. The Quran remained pure up to now, even a single letter has not been changed. The Quran confirms the previous books followed by Jews and Christians (in their original forms)as God’s words. We believe in the same God that was worshipped by Prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus (may be even by Buddha) (Peace be upon them). Btw no other book gives a definition for God other than Quran.

          Kami, You wrote above that Mohammed was illiterate. But Hadith in Bukhari vol. IV, no. 393 record that he could in fact read and write.

          Muhammad’s revelations has proved he failed a direct test of his claim to prophet-hood.

          I’ll give you just one example. Muhammad was asked to explain why a child will look like one parent as opposed to looking like the other. He claimed that Gabriel came and gave the inspired answer. Bukhari vol. IV: no. 546 tells us that ‘we are dealing with revelation and not just his personal opinion. He said that the child will look like which parent reaches his or her sexual climax first.’ Is that true? I can come up with a lot more if youwant

      Meet the Iranian graduate student who is obviously too sexy to serve on any city council.

      Egalitarian Islam was hijacked by the Whahhabis, Salafis, Deobandis, Talibans, the Ulama, and the Mullah for their own Hegemony.

      A woman who won a spot a seat on a city council in Iran has been disqualified from serving because she is just too hot.

      Nina Siahkali Moradi, a graduate student of architecture, recently received 10,000 votes in city council elections in Qazvin (about 100 miles northwest of Tehran). She finished 14th in a very crowded field of 163 candidates, reports the Daily Mail.

      The candidate earned enough votes in the June 14 election to become an “alternative member of the council,” which basically means that she would step in if someone on the council were to leave the position.

    LTTE claimed that the children are entitled to protect themselves by using Arms but they only provide them with training and weapons.At a later stage they forcibly recruited children when they face the problem of short of soldiers. Ultimately all have died including son of the boss exept very few in the hands of the soldiers.Thaliban has also followed the same policy.but it is a inhuman act that using children for political and military purposes by elders.It is also an inhuman act of killing them by either parties in the name of peace.For god sake please allow shildren to live as children and enjoy their childwood as gurenteed by UN and our cultures.

    Kami,
    You say “MOST Sri Lankan Muslims do not support extremism ….” As far as we are concerned, all Muslims follow the same Koran. And Muslims say, Koran verse have to read in the rights ‘context’.

    It is this ‘context’ that Wahhabis and Salafists differ from Sufis and Ahamadias and like sects because these sects interpret the Koran differently. Wahhabis and Salafists want to destroy monuments whereas Sufis and Ahamadis wanted to preserve them.

    Bin Ladden and Mullah Omar, the leader of Taliban are Wahhabi followers. You can gauge what Wahhabis believe in from their acts.

    During the last ten years, we’ve heard of an increase in the demolition of burial sites, homes and historical locations that were associated with prophet Muhammad in Mecca and Medina. Among those monuments leveled were the graves of the Martyrs of the Battle of Uhud, Hamza ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib, uncle of Muhammad and one of his most beloved supporters, and the Mosque of Fatimah Al Zahra, daughter of Mohammad, the Mosque of the Two Lighthouses (Manaratayn) as well as the Qubbat Al-Thanaya, the cupola built as the burial place of Mohammad’s incisor tooth.

    In Sri Lanka Wahhabi thugs of ACJU dug the body of a Sufi saint Sheihul Mufliheen M.S.M Abdullah (Rah) passed away in Dec 2006 which was laid to rest in the Thareeka premises in Kathankudy according to his wishes. Followed by this they set ablaze 117 abodes of the followers and were chased away from their place of birth, never to return back. All in the name of true Islam.

    Tell us Kami, which sect you belong and which sect represent true Islam? Do you understand why we have Islamphobia now.

      Patriot & others: I am just an ordinary Muslim who follow Quran and Sunnah as best as I can. I do not belong to any ‘sect’ as there were no sects during Prophet Muhammad’s time. All such groups came long after his demise. The Prophet taught us how to be patient, how to live a simple life and how to live harmoniously with people of other faiths. People who call themselves true Muslims often do not follow his real teachings, its a sad fact. Yet, there are millions of Muslims who strive to follow the real Islam. I do not claim to be a better Muslim as I too sin with or without my knowledge for which I ask for pardon from Allah (God) alone. Life is too short and I believe there are two more stages we have to face, one in the grave and another at the place of eternity – hell or heaven. Whatever good or bad I did will be rewarded for in those places. EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US HAVE TO FACE ALLAH (GOD ALMIGHTY) ONE DAY, IN THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT.

        Kami,
        Being a a Muslim, it is natural for you follow the Koran verses the best you can. But you should know that there was no Koran or Hadith during you Prophet’s time. The claim that Uthman complied the Koran immediately afterward Muhammad’s death in 632 has no evidence to
        support it. The present text of Koran came from multiple authors using erroneous legends, myths, and stories. Is that why the Koran has so many absurdities and contradictions, I do not know.

      If Goofy saints like M.S.M.Abdullah of 2006 can become a sufi, all Kattankudy is falling in apostasy no doubt.

      Hamza’s burial ground is kept intact within a parapet in Madina till date, not demolished.

      If a cupola built on top of Muhammad’s fallen or extracted tooth is worthwhile in reverence it’s deemed not that viable to Islam. So, it is un-Islamic and the false propaganda you quote is not that tangible, for a Muslim never pray to Mohammad or his skeleton nor his tuxedos.

        The fact that you call M.S.M.Abdullah (Rah) a goof shows your Wahhabi character of intolerance. The fact that you cannot tolerate another belief of a another Islamic sect and practicing their faith shows the situation in Sri Lanka when you Wahhabis increase your number by breeding more.

        What is happening in Pakistan will no doubt take root in Sri Lanka.

          There is not another belief nor another sect under the banner of Islam. Apostasy is a abominable practice within the fold of Islam, and some practicing it calling it Islam cannot be justified to be abiding to the fundamentls of Islam. A union with a single motto of One God & One Brotherhood is sufficient to unite all colours of people in peace and prosperity.

    Amarasiri and Kami Read this:

    The Kalama Sutta states:
    Do not go upon what has been acquired by repeated hearing,
    nor upon tradition,
    nor upon rumor,
    nor upon what is in a scripture,
    nor upon surmise,
    nor upon an axiom,
    nor upon specious reasoning,
    nor upon a bias towards a notion that has been pondered over,
    nor upon another’s seeming ability,
    nor upon the consideration, “The monk is our teacher.” [emphasis added]
    Kalamas, when you yourselves know: “These things are good; these things are not blamable; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness,” enter on and abide in them.’
    Thus, the Buddha named ten specific sources which knowledge should not be immediately viewed as truthful without further investigation to avoid fallacies:
    Oral history
    Traditional
    News sources
    Scriptures or other official texts
    Suppositional reasoning
    Philosophical dogmatism
    Common sense
    One’s own opinions
    Experts
    Authorities or one’s own teacher
    Instead, the Buddha says, only when one personally knows that a certain teaching is skillful, blameless, praiseworthy, and conducive to happiness, and that it is praised by the wise, should one then accept it as true and practice it. Thus, as stated by Soma Thera, the Kalama Sutta is just that; the Buddha’s charter of free inquiry:
    “ The instruction of the Kalamas (Kalama Sutta) is justly famous for its encouragement of free inquiry; the spirit of the sutta signifies a teaching that is exempt from fanaticism, bigotry, dogmatism, and intolerance.[4] ”
    However, as stated by Bhikkhu Bodhi, this teaching is not intended as an endorsement for either radical skepticism or as for the creation of unreasonable personal truth:

      Good notes from Daham Pasela. Can you teach that to BBS, Sinhala Ravaya and to revise the Monk Mahanama Myths of Vijaya’s grandfather being a lion?

      Look Fathima Furzaba,

      I keept on reading all criticism against islam, and i gave a desparate attempt to say, Those are not true… I keept on finding anti arguments. looked on books etc.. Only answer that i can come up is ” IT is Allahs words, dont talk about it” or ” Allah is great ” and the way of skpping the question without answering it.

      And I found Criticism on ISlam IS TRUE and CORRECT. We dont have answers. so we skip the question, ban talking about it or if not we attack the pesron who question , cut his hand and finally kill him. this is how we preserve ISlam.

      then I started finding faluts with buddhism. and try to learn what it says and critisize it. I understood, OH my god… !! this is truth !!
      we were been cheted. ( just like quran ask us to cheat others)
      then i talked to my muslim firends. they said, as per shariya, I should be killed if I leave islam. and that is what Shariya ( so-called Gods law) says.

      so i took a decision. Luckely Sri Lanka is not giverned by shariya. so I still have the fredom to go inserch of eternal harmony. So i started my journy, dispite the critisicm of family, firends and the muslim society i lived.

      I know what people would comment on this. what they would say. most muslims would say, “im a budhist and im fake ( as we can see in many answers on anti-islam ideas) or they wiuld rather coverup my argument by saying something irrelevet ( Allah is great or etc )

      While i feel sorry about most of this muslims who are still been cheaed by islam, i invite those who are still can think, tio see the reallity. hating and killing non mulslims, coverting others in to islam, holy-war… these are not the ways of life. stop hating others and go for eternal harmony !

      Fathima Furzana –

      “I wonder why our Muslim brothers who are very active don’t comment on articles that talk about Muslims! “

      Why,Why, ? ? Revelation and Ulema have blinded their reason.

      1. Their brains have been saturated with memorizing the Quran, Hadith and the sermons of the Mullahs and Ulema, and less on Reason, Philosophy and Analytical thinking. So, they cannot think and reason.

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

      This was not the case in the first 300 years of Islam and Islamic Science flourished. Then Revelation took over reason, and the Muslims lost their ability to think, but to follow the Ulema blindly.

    I find most writers whos comment are published, are closet racist. BBS Is
    evil and it will break up Sri Lanka. As a muslim i can tell you, we have always had a Sri Lanken Identity. But with BBS Coming and breaking mosque,and with government support police looking the other way. Thinkings are changing in the muslim community, this will eventually lead to civil war, casualties will be on both sides, and sides will have to be taken-this is logical conclusion of what these monks with no brains want. Gota & MR Has to stop this now before it seeps into the masses and a civil war is born before they can control.
    Also if monks read history correctly: 30year war with LTTE Would pale insignificantly if the muslims take up arms as seen in most other contrys.It would be too international to control, and how could Sri Lanken buddhist goto work in Middle-east.This all will have to stop,and
    economy will be in shambles.Lets work as Sri Lankens and ban the BBS and there racist idealogy.
