Covering Up The Carnage On Muslims Of Aluthgama, Dhargha Town, Beruwala And The Surrounding Areas

Buddha preaches love and compassion. If the Buddha is there, he will protect the Muslims whom the Buddhists are attacking-  Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

While  the Sinhala Zionist Bodu Bala Sena (BBS),gangsters were killing Muslims, looting and burning  Muslim owned properties in Aluthgama, Dharga Town, Beruwala and the surrounding areas  on June 15 and 16, 2014 in Colombo an all out effort was made to  cover up  this carnage  with a media blackout.

This was a disaster for the local mainstream media which, by and large, had become tool in the hands of the government and Sinhala racist elements.

However, within 24 hours, media  become a laughing stock as  throughout  the curfew hours on Sunday 15 June 2014 and    Monday  16, people  were kept  informed of the  barbarity unleashed with minute by minute comments by several sources including mobile phones, sms, face book and twitters.

As a result, the overall policy of local media showing indifference towards Muslim issues and promoting racist elements became almost irrelevant.

Only on the third day, Tuesday 17 June 2014, news started  trickling out from the media providing some details of the  Sinhala extremists’ shameful violence on helpless and voiceless Muslims supported by the Special Task Force, STF, and the police.

Even on the third day the media failed to highlight the scale and seriousness of the atrocities. There were noon the spot reports. There were no detail articles or photo features of the destruction.

In one of the most shameful developments in the history of the island’s mainstream media, wide publicity was given to news and views of politicians and others trying to hide the crime and put the blame on the victims.

However, foreign media covered the carnage with all the details exposing local media hypocrisy.

Now the question is who imposed the media blackout? Who gave the order to the media not to publish anything related to the   carnage? Who wanted to cover it up?  Why did they want to camouflage and protect the Sinhala extremist mob? Why did the mainstream media, predominantly private owned, obediently complied with this order?

It is obvious that the order was to help facilitate the murderous thugs to ensure smooth implementation of their pogrom. This is an indirect effort to wipe out the Muslim community, a community that has been living for more than 1200 years in the island.

In Colombo racist neo fascist outfit  JHU, self declared guardian of Sinhalese and Buddhism, was in the forefront trying to hoodwink the country by diverting attention with blatant lies such as the presence of Al Qaeda, so called Muslim extremists and the myth of threat they pose to the security of the country.

Minister Champika Ranawaka was in the forefront in spearheading this campaign defending his BBS friends. He came out with interviews after an interview vehemently defending BBS barbarism. This implies his hostility towards the Muslims.

Media virtually sold its soul when these malicious interviews were given wide publicity.

Time and again top police and army officials have clearly denied of any presence of Al-Qaeda or any such organizations here. The National Shoora Council, an umbrella organization of numerous Muslims organizations, has asked JHU and others to produce any evidence of the Al Qaeda presence here.

So far JHU failed to substantiate their allegation. However, both Minister Ranawaka and his JHU colleague Udaya Gammanpila continue to frighten the innocent Sinhalese by trying to sell their bogey of Muslim extremist presence here.

Al Qaeda is an organization of Afghans, founded, trained, funded and built up by the United States and its stooge Saudi Arabia in the 1980s to fight Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. Since the collapse of former Soviet Union, US ,UK and Europe invaded Muslim countries one after the other and destroyed their modern infrastructures and killed millions of innocent people besides driving  many more millions into refugee camps to languish there.

People who had seen how their countries are being destroyed and their loved ones being raped, tortured and slaughtered joined Al Qaeda to fight against US-European atrocities. It was this Al Qaeda described by the predominantly pro Jewish Western media as terrorists. Third world countries like Sri Lanka depending on western media for their international coverage always get the distorted version. Thus people word wide does not know the correct picture of who the terrorists are and who the freedom fighters are.

There is no question of al Qaeda indulging in petty crimes such as robbery, looting, arson and murder as the BBS had done.

Displaying his ignorance, Minister Ranawaka even accused Jamaathe Islami and Tabligh Jamaath of being extremists. Jamaathe Islam confines to intellectual activities while Tabligh Jamath, a non political movement, spread the message of Islam through peaceful means.  Thuggary, violence, attacking innocent people, looting and burning their properties and causing immense sufferings to innocent people have never been part of the agenda of any Muslim organization in the island. That is the exclusive privilege of Sinhala extremists who virtually ruined this beautiful country.

These groups within the Muslim community had been there for decades and have never posed any threat to anyone. If there was such a threat as Minister Ranawaka falsely claims he can get his government to probe and bring them to book.

Minister Ranawaka visited a Sinhalese family in the affected area around Aluthgama. During the same visit ,as minister of the government ,did he visit the  burnt Muslim areas and looked at the  face of the two month old baby whose father was  killed allegedly by the STF while defending   the mosque from the BBS thugs.

However his human feelings run dry when it comes to Muslims.

The English language daily “Daily Mirror” devoted a full page write up and pictures of Minister Ranawaka’s visit. How many pictures this daily published on the carnage in and around Aluthgama?

Reiterating the pro racist policy of Daily mirror the website Colombo Telegraph had this to state;

“The Daily Mirror which took an extremist Buddhist position on the riots in Aluthgama and Beruwala in June continues its streak of promoting Buddhist nationalism and racism in the country, has distorted the statement issued by the venerable Dalai Lama the spiritual leader of Tibet and Buddhist icon.

Under the heading “Dalai Lama statement misleading: PNM” the Daily Mirror   said that while expressing displeasure on the statement issued by Most Ven. Dalai Lama on Sri Lankan Buddhists, Patriotic National Movement (PNM) Chairman Ven. Elle Gunawansa Thera on Monday said Dalai Lama has been misled on how Muslims were being treated in Sri Lanka.

“There is a conspiracy against Sri Lanka. These sinister motives are to discredit and tarnish the image of Sri Lanka and if possible to destroy it,” Gunawansa has said according to the Daily Mirror report.

Shockingly the newspaper has failed to carry the statement of the Dalai Lama in full anywhere in the newspaper although almost all other newspapers in Sri Lanka have printed the Spiritual Leader’s remarks. The Dalai Lama’s statement however appears on the Daily Mirror news website.

Liyanarachchi’s actions to turn the Daily Mirror newspaper which is widely read by minorities in Sri Lanka as the country’s largest daily English paper into a nationalist pro JHU pro Sinhala hardline newspaper remain unaccounted for”.

Equally in the frontline to cover up the Aluthgama pogrom was  JHU provincial councilor Udaya Gammanpils who distorted facts  in  his weekly column “The Guard Post” in the Ceylon Today on 6 July 2014 under the title” Dharga Town-A Post Mortem” to mislead  the people.

This was absolute lie to save the BBS thugs and put the blame on Muslims.

It is not an easy task for Muslim point of view to find some space in the local media which played a crucial role in poisoning the Sinhalese minds against Muslims and creating today’s unfortunate climate of hatred between the two communities. It was the media which built up racist elements such as BBS and JHU to the detriment of the country.

The pathetic plight of once proud media is such that English newspaper Ceylon Today   came out with a poster campaign to promote its July 6 issue titled ‘Sri Lanka under “Al Qaeda Threat bearing the image of a masked, black-clad terrorist wielding a gun.

Describing the JHU’s disastrous racist policies and threat posed to the county, in  his   10 July 2014 interview with “The Island” , Vice President of the United National Bhikku Front and the Chief Incumbent of the Khettaramaya Temple in Godagama,  Ven Malabe Seelarathna said“ Gnanasara Thera  as disaster to the Sasana”.

He added that; “In the context where the government is losing support among the Buddhists, they have created these extremist organizations to shore up their support by portraying the minorities as enemies. Today, the government does not have the minority vote. I think these people are going to contest the next election on the ruling party ticket. Before this, we saw the Hela Urumaya coming forward, selling our Buddhist flag, and our Valampuri. They created a situation where bhikkus in this country were referred to as ‘hakgedi’. The Hela Urumaya destroyed the respect the people had for the robe and the Buddhist flag. After going into politics, what have these people done for the Sasana? They only ended up enjoying the perks of office and are today leading luxurious lives.  The Bodu Bala Sena is also trying to get into parliament and enjoy all the perks. It is to defend this corrupt government that they are doing all this”.

Meanwhile adding insult to injury the External Affairs Minister Prof G.L. Peiris accused the victims as extremists when he said “extremists on “both Sides”.

Later briefing a group of ambassadors and high commissioners on Monday 23 June 2014 Prof Peiris said” disruptive elements consisted on an extreme fringe on both sides, and it was necessary to be balanced in any proper appraisal of the situation”.

Here Prof Peiris put the blame on the victims, Muslims, too. He knows very well that it was Sinhala mob attacked the Muslims. It was only the Muslims who suffered.

Perhaps Prof Peiris at least should have listened to the speech of United National Party parliamentarian Palitha Thevarapperuma who had been an eye witness and whose eye was injured by the mob, when he said this heinous crime was committed by Sinhala mob with the complete backing of STF.

The mainstream media suffers from some kind of anti Muslim hysteria though the Muslims in the country have been the most peaceful of the three communities and Muslim countries in the world remain the best friends of the island in the world.

Sri Lanka benefits a great deal from Muslim countries than all countries, including Buddhist countries, put together.

For example almost a million Sri Lankans work in the Gulf countries and remit more than six billion dollars yearly. This is around 60 percent of the country’s foreign earnings. This employment opportunity has numerous positive economic, social and cultural elements bringing the Gulf countries and the Sri Lankans together.

These aspects were completely ignored by the mainstream media.

However the local media screams when a Sri Lankan worker was ill-treated while trying to project as if the doors of prosperity were opened to the island when few hundred Sri Lankans were recruited by Israel for employment.

To cite yet another example hundreds of articles were written dealing with different aspects of Indian vote on the issue of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights’ probe into alleged Sri Lankan war crimes during the last stage of the LTTE war in May 2009.

However seven Muslim countries voted in favor of Sri Lanka. This support was simply ignored as passing remarks in the local media.

This has been the pattern for years.

In yet another attempt to cover up the carnage twenty three Buddhist Organizations issued a joint statement stating that the media blackout imposed by the Information Department has failed to highlight the sufferings of the Sinhalese in the area.

They claimed that their version was the true story behind the Aluthgama clashes. They expressed disappointment over the manner in which the media reported the incident saying it was evident that a media censorship imposed by the authorities prevented the media from reporting the truth.

The organizations are: All Ceylon Buddhist Congress, Colombo Young Men’s Buddhist Association, Government Service Buddhist Association, Colombo Parama Vinnartha Buddhist Association, and Victory Association. Organization of United Buddhist Associations, Dharma Vijaya Foundation, National Bhikku Conference, Bodu Bala Sena, Sinhala Rawaya National Association, Sinhala Veera Vidana, National Association of Eminent Persons, Buddhist Power Circle, Hela Bodu Saviya, Patriotic Teacher’s Association. Swarna Hansa Padanama, Hela Deya Wadanno, Rawana Saviya National Association, Hela Yugaya National Organization, Hela Vijaya National Movement, National Movement for Protection of Historical Sites, Shanthi Padanama and Sri Lanka Maha Bodi Padanama.

It would have been better that these organizations visited the affected areas and see for themselves who did what and who suffered most before making this statement to hoodwink the people.

Meanwhile the authorities   tried to cover up the killing of two Muslims who came out of their house to protect a mosque. The eyewitness accounts confirmed that the two Muslims died “due to gunfire”. However, post mortem says the deaths were caused by lethal cut wounds.

The Opposition leader Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe made a special statement in the parliament alleging that there seemed to be a cover-up of the incidents at Aluthgama.

He added that there are many eye witnesses who state that the deaths occurred due to gun fire. However, post mortem states that the deaths were caused by lethal cut wounds. These contradictory statements bring about many misgivings. These misgivings are further confounded by the interview given by Rauff Hakeem, the Minister of Justice to a newspaper on 22nd June which states that; “Although two people were shot dead in Welipitiya on Thursday, its inquiry and the post-mortem are strange. I can submit proof that bullets had been used at the spot where these people were wounded.  I went to the spot. It is not the civilians who fired at them.  But the post mortem report states that those two were dead due to lethal cut wounds.  It is a very serious matter if even the medical reports are prepared fraudulently”.

As the Minister of Justice himself states, it is a very serious matter if even the medical reports are prepared fraudulently. I also wish to draw your attention on the Magistrate’s inquiry conducted on these killings. That inquiry had no representation from the Attorney General’s Department.

The Counsels appearing for the affected party drew the attention of the Court on an important matter where they stated that the Government Analyst had not yet been called to the locations. In particular, it is a methodology followed worldwide to summon the analysts to the locations destroyed by fire and determine their cause. However, in this instance, not only the Department of Government Analyst had not been called, but also the armed forces had been deployed to remove all the debris and renovate all such spots that caught fire so that every proof that would support such an inquiry would be rubbed out.

Therefore, the Magistrate has issued an order banning removal of debris around the spot concerning this case and the related renovations.  However, I would like to bring to the notice of this House that the process of concealing proof  is underway everywhere else’ stated Mr. Wickremasinghe.

This is the plight of Sri Lanka’s Muslim minority which lives in fear.

      Mr. Latheef Farook –


      “It was not a normal explosive device like a hand grenade, or some other one- it was a Claymore bomb” he says during an interview braodcast in the Sinhala language, on the Daily Mirror online webpage.

      The interviewer, interjects and asks Thewarapperuma if he is making the statement with responsibility, and the Parliamentarian replies in the affirmative.

      ” Of course I am, the evidence is still there anyone could go and see. I have been in the army and I know the difference of a normal explosive device and a claymore bomb” he said.

      Thewarapperuma a UNP MP representing the Kaluthara District was injured during the anti – Muslim riots which began on June 15th.

      In the interview he further asserts that the entire attack was planned and done at the behest of a “higher power”.

      ” This was clearly done at the behest of some higher power, the Police and the STF acted deaf and blind. I saw how the Police and STF watched on while my vehicle and the people I transported were attacked by these mobs”.

      ” These were not Sinhalese Buddhists, these were about 1000- to 2000 followers of a faith that Gnanasara professes” he said.

      However, 23 Buddhist organizations were lying? Were they controlled by Gansara of BBS and Gotabaya Rajapaksa?

      Expose, Expose and Expose ALL the lies, all the cockamamie lies, ‘
      Internationalize, Internationalize, and Internationalize and distribute locally. Have a campaign to get every Sri Lankan Muslim have Facebook, Twitter and U-Tube account.

      It was only dailymirror which was not under Rajapakse clout.
      With this Aluthgama riot that was also taken over by Rajapakses.

      But facebook and mobile social medias had become more powerful and far reaching. news spread like wild fire when controlled.
      Rajapakses cannot stop social media.
      Rajapakses cannot stop Karma. It will haunt them back for sure.

    Mr Farook

    I read that account by the 23 so-called “Buddhist” organisations and was shocked by it. Their decision to “accompany” the “injured” monk back to his temple, en masse, including the BBS, was an obvious attempt to provoke and intimidate. The truth of their report should be measured against the account given by MP Thewarapperuma in today’s DAILY MIRROR. The latter reporter went to prevent trouble and then got involved in assisting the victims and becoming one himself. The former — well, is is necessary to say anything more.

    And what is really appalling is that the whole thing is being swept under the carpet, actually and metaphorically, and what should have been an urgent investigation is nowhere in sight.

    We can only expect more of this in the future in view of the state’s refusal to seriously shoulder responsibility.

    Covering Up The Carnage On Muslims Of Aluthgama, Dhargha Town, Beruwala And The Surrounding Areas

    Cockamamie Liars.

    Expose, Expose, and Expose Cockamamie Liars, Locally and internationally.



    Pronounced /ˈkɒkəˌmeɪmɪ/Help with IPA

    Cockamamie — something ridiculous, incredible or implausible — is an intrinsically funny word, but it’s truly incredible that word historians believe it’s a close relative of decal, a design prepared on special paper for transfer to another surface. (It is instead sometimes said to be Yiddish, but this turns out not to be the case.)
    The original of both cockamamie and decal is the French décalcomanie, which was created in the early 1860s to refer to the craze for decorating objects with transfers (it combines décalquer, to transport a tracing, with manie, a mania or craze). The craze, and the word, soon transferred to Britain — it’s recorded in the magazine The Queen on 27 February 1864: “There are few employments for leisure hours which for the past eighteen months have proved either so fashionable or fascinating as decalcomanie”. It reached the United States around 1869 and — to judge from the number of newspaper references in that year — became as wildly popular as it had earlier in France and Britain. The word was quickly Anglicised as decalcomania and in the 1950s it became abbreviated to decal.

    The link between decalcomania and cockamamie isn’t proved, but the evidence suggests strongly that children in New York City in the 1930s (or perhaps a decade earlier) converted the one into the other. There was a fashion for self-decoration at that period, using coloured transfers given away with candy and chewing gum. Shelly Winters wrote of cockamamie in The New York Times in 1956 that “This word, translated from the Brooklynese, is the authorized pronunciation of decalcomania. Anyone there who calls a cockamamie a decalcomania is stared at.”

    Quite how the word changed sense to mean something incredible is least clear of all. An early sense was of something inferior or second-rate, which presumably referred to the poor quality of the cheap transfers. It might have been influenced by words such as cock-and-bull or poppycock. Anyone who adopted the craze for sticking transfers on oneself may have been regarded by adults or more serious-minded youngsters as silly — certainly the first sense was of a person who was ridiculous or crazy; the current sense came along a few years later.

    ‘If the Buddha is there, he will protect the Muslims whom the Buddhists are attacking’

    I agree with most of the things Latheef Farook has said.
    However, there are one or two matters, which, in my view,
    should not go unchallenged. At least for the edification
    of most CT readers, it is important to highlight them.

    He says that Daily Mirror newspaper (under the leadership
    of that infamous Champ ika Liyana Aratchchi) imposed a
    blackout. As a former Tamil journalist, I want to know
    whether this was a management decision or a decision made
    by her for personal satisfaction. Ceylon Today which is
    a gossip journal also sensationalized with posters about
    the presence of Al Qaeda terrorists in Sri Lanka. Their
    Editorial Director Tushara Gunaratne should have asked
    Tiran who has had a lot of dealings with the LTTE whether
    it is true. He knows about terrorists and made his
    money from the LTTE.

    Please remember the Island is a pro Sinhala nationalist
    minded newspaper. Yet, they were bold and courages to
    come out with the truth. They did so on a number of
    occasions. So Mr Farook do not lump all the newspapers
    in Champika’s pit.

    Another point is his claim that seven Arab countries voted
    for Sri Lanka. So what? Why should special mention be made
    only of them? All Sri Lankans appreciate that countries like
    Pakistan, a muslim country supported Sri Lanka. Mr. Farook
    sometimes becomes so obsessed in his views (Isrealiphobia) and
    assumes that newspapers should behave the way he expects. Please
    reason out and see there is always another side to it.

    Otherwise, the case he is highlighting is very true. Muslims got
    a very bad deal.

      oh come on stop praising Pakistan.
      That country is ruled by an undeclared Junta regime as our own land.
      Pakistan is not supporting the Muslims, Pakistan is supporting Sri Lanka to hurt India. I am not talking about the majority Pakistani people but the regime. PM of that stupid land is just a dummy with a dummy parliament. PM cannot even step out without the permission of ISI and the Army. Pakistan has fallen into Buffalo Gonraja’s & Greasepiya Gota’s trap. Pakistan behaved in the last UNHRC session like Moron Asswar in the parliament.
      Of course the Arab countries, Indonesia, Maldives, Bangladesh supported or favored Sri Lanka all the time when voting took place. So what’s wrong in highlighting that fact Mr. ex Tamil journalist?
      If you want to know what exactly happened in Aluthgama, Darga Town & Beruwela listen to palith Thewarapperuma’s video footage.

      You are asking why special mention to be made only on Arab countries? That’s because they are Muslim countries and our buggers don’t have any gratitude. Its as same as, as Palitha Thewarapperuma mentioned in his interview, after eating Thambiyos bath packets our ungrateful rascals attacked the same Muslims.

    Quran (8:12) – I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    The Quran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to war with nonbelievers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they do not join the slaughter.

    Unlike nearly all of the Old Testament verses of violence, the verses of violence in the Quran are mostly open-ended, meaning that they are not restrained by the historical context of the surrounding text. They are part of the eternal, unchanging word of Allah, and just as relevant or subjective as anything else in the Quran.

    The context of violent passages is more ambiguous than might be expected of a perfect book from a loving God, however this can work both ways. Most of today’s Muslims exercise a personal choice to interpret their holy book’s call to arms according to their own moral preconceptions about justifiable violence. Apologists cater to their preferences with tenuous arguments that gloss over historical fact and generally do not stand up to scrutiny. Still, it is important to note that the problem is not bad people, but bad ideology.

    Now you sing hosannas to Ranil Wickremasinghe. All this while the Muslims have aligned to whomever, to benefit the community other than to genuine political leadership and not in the interest of the country. This is a good eyeopener for all Muslims to uphold Ethics and Justice aligning their support to Decent Honest Political leaders in the future.

      “This is a good eyeopener for all Muslims to uphold Ethics and Justice aligning their support to Decent Honest Political leaders in the future.”

      The problem Muslims and Tamils Had was that there were NO Decent Honest Sinhala Buddhist Political leaders.

      The LSSP and CP sold out their principles and Joined the Racist Sinhalese Buddhist party SLFP.

      Who is left? UNP? JVP? Democratic Party in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka.


      Later that year, the LSSP joined the coalition government of Sirimavo Bandaranaike. Three of its MPs became Ministers; Dr N. M. Perera (Finance), Cholomondely Goonewardena (Public Works) and Anil Moonesinghe (Communications). The LSSP was expelled from the Fourth International, and the membership was passed on to LSSP(R).

      Gamini,last general election failed to return a single
      Muslim UNP MP from Colombo.But after that,in the local
      election,Colombo captured the MC for UNP,giving a new
      lease of life to the ailing Decent Honest future
      Political leaders.And then in the recent Provincial
      Council elections,Colombo Muslims defeated Fouzi’s son
      and returned three Muslim members from UNP.Kalutara
      Muslims also sent a Muslim for UNP,dropping the UPFA.
      And in Matara,Muslims extended their support to the
      JVP,dumping not only UPFA,but also Muslim Congress,
      giving Muslim Congress only about five hundred votes.
      This trend of Muslims,should speak volumes of the
      way they behave in the face of uphill tasks the whole
      country is facing and especially at a time Muslims are
      under social,economic and political threat.What’s
      happening to Muslims today is not happening only for
      their religion and culture,it is also happening for
      their political relationship with the UNP and it is
      the UNP which has a bigger responsibility to protect
      and guide the community which Palitha Thevarapperuma
      generously did for Muslims,for the party,for Sinhalese
      for the international Muslim society,for humanity and
      finally for himself.Muslims have come forward to face
      the wrath of UPFA by supporting their choice and
      giving a new hope to UNP upon which the party is now
      building up hopes for their next step.Shall we look
      at it that way Gamini?

    If the Government cannot come out and say who gave the orders to block the media, then the Media guy Keli Keheliya Rambukwela has to resign. Its his duty to tell the world who gave the orders to block the media.

    Buddha preaches love and compassion. If the Buddha is there, he will protect the Muslims whom the Buddhists are attacking- Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

    So Buddha preaches love and compassion, but Sinhala Buddhists don’t follow and therefore Sinhala Buddhists are at fault.


    Quran (2:191-193) – “And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief] is worse than killing…
    but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone.

    Quran preaches to attack non-believers, and Muslims are following that and therefore they are correct.

    No Organisation or Government had won anything at the expense of killing innocent civilians for achieving their desired goals. This MARA campaign at the behest of BOORU BALU SENA AND JATHIKA HELA KARUMAYA is also doomed to fail.MARA will face the day of reckoning very soon for his complicit in this crime against humanity. What saddens me is how ignorant is the majority of the true Buddhists to this stark reality and turn a blind eye to this national catastrophe taking place in the full public glare . They say silence at the time you need to speak up is the worst crime . Ask yourself the question, what have I done to stem this animalistic and barbaric act of my government. Worst of all dishing out lies after lies to justify their barbaric act.

    Yes, what Latheef Farook says might be true. This BBS Gnanasara could be a Zionist, Gota and Mara creation.

    BBS is well funded and protected by the Rajapakse Trio while technical and intelligence support given by the Racist thugs Zionist entity who are the enemies ofPalestine Muslim people.

    Rajapakses are playing double game with both Palestine and Israel.

    It was said when Mossad came to help Sri Lankan security forces fighting LTTE, they gave intelligence and training to both factions on battle techniques until then UNP government found out and chased them away.

    Rajapakses bottom line is eternal power and they are ready to sacrifice whole of Sri Lanka and it’s future for their own selfish goals.

    Sri Lanka could be another Afganistan pretty soon under Rajapakses.

    It’s time for all the patriots to unite and get rid of the common enemy.

        First learn the Geography. Where is Lebanon and where is West Bank where 1,000 rockets fired from.
        Zionists control West Bank and murder poor Palestine people like dogs who live in an open prison like slaves depriving them their lively hood,food, medicine, travel restrictions and work.

        Read the history and see how Zionists created Israel and occupied Palestine by fraud after systematically murdering poor Muslims for over 70 years.Read the history of Palestine and ME. Also read the life of Adolph Hitler and the real reason why he gassed millions of Zionists.

        These are the crooks of your and your friend BBS Gnanasara.

        Good luck to you.

    Leave out all the earlier acquisitions at each other by either party. lets look at who started the present spate of violence.

    On the Muslim part they say Ven. Gnanasara’s hate speech started the violence. Buddhists say root cause for violence was three Muslim Thowheed youth attacking Ven Ayagama Samitha of Sri Vijeyaramaya temple in Dharga Town and his driver on Poson poya day 12th June 2014 when they were on there way to Bana.

    The monk was hospitalized and a complaint was made at the police. Police didn’t apprehend the offenders. BBS wasn’t involved. But people threw stones at police but not at Muslim shops.

    When ven Samitha was checked out of the hospital on the following day, and there was a reception to receive him at Aluthgama town. BBS came to the seen and ven Gnanasara made a speech. It was to give moral support and an inspiration to invigorate and build confidence to a battered monk.

    Ven. Gnanasara’s speech didn’t start any riot. After the meeting, people took the Ven Ayagama back to his temple in a perahera. And perahera is our Sinhala Buddhist tradition.

    There were Wahabi thugs assembled at the mosque on that saturday. Why? They threw the first stone at perahera from the mosque. There is an amateur video to prove beyond doubt. https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/video-who-started-the-riot/

    What a joke, this fellow compares BBS to Al Qaeda who blasted the world trade centre to ground. In Sri Lanka, there were not many Thowheeds before 1970s.

    With the rise of Saudi Arabia, however Wahhabis spread their wings and demeaned and undermined the spiritualism of traditional Muslims. ACJU became a Wahhabi den. Thowheeds jamath imported Wahhabi clerics from Tamil Nadu to tell Muslims their interpretation of the Koran (Wahhabism) is the true Islam.

    ACJU parallel aim has been to project Sri Lanka as a Muslim country. In that twin motive, asserting their presence through halal, billa and etc has become the wider spectrum of the Muslim society.

    Thowheed Muslim trait is to find someone to fight on behalf of Allah. They have Sunni-Shia fights or Suni-Suni fights or Suni-Ahamadiyya fights, or Suni-Christians fights or Sini – jews fights, or Suni-fighting with any other. All they want is be a Jihadist fight for Allah and go to heaven with entire family and be with Allah and his (eternal virgin) houries for ever. That’s what is coming to Sri Lanka.

    Injustice can rule this world but not in the Hereafter.Death, destruction hatred fear and fights are incresingly on higher side becuase injustice is at its peak everywhere in the world today.All criminals and liars will reap what they sow and it is just a matter of time. May the Creator Almighty ease the problems of the victims who has to defend themselves from these criminals. Our Creator is the All-Seer All hearer and All Knower.All the criminals and liars should fear God and His punishment is severe and it is not something like that of man-made punishments.Let us remember this world is temporary and a testing ground for the believers and our goal should be the Hereafter which is eternal. May our Creator give us patience guide all of us and punish the wrong doers! Let us all pray for that. And let the curse fall upon the wrong doers.Ameen!

    Mr.Latheef Farook,

    There’s a saying that “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”. Therefore use this wise phrase to demolish this 23 odd Buddhist Racist organizations and Rajapakse, Gota, BBS, Rawaya, Rawana Balaya, JHU nexus.

    First build a strong relationship with Sinhala, Buddhist, Tamil, Muslim and Christian Clergies,Politicians, organizations, corporates, Bar Association, NGOs, individuals and others who are against Rajapakses, BBS thugs and other racist cults in nexus and build bridges with those who are sympathetic on Muslim and minority rights causes and issues.

    Build a strong relationship with Sri Lanka based Foreign Diplomatic Community,expatriate community, Media houses, International human rights organizations, minority right organizations etc,etc and keep them informed of what’s happening in Sri Lanka.

    Build a strong relationship with ME and other Muslim countries and their political and religious leaders and communities.

    Open up releaf organizations to support the victims and request for donations from around the world to help victims and their families, businesses and lost properties that were lost during the riots.

    Distribute Cameras, video recorders and phone, CCTVs among communities to record all descriminations and to record future riots as proof to show to the world.Record and report everything to the world.

    Conduct workshops to Create more reporters, journalists and media and IT personnel and share those views with the rest of the world.

    Open your own web site and other media to send the truth to the world.

    Open up your own Muslim Radio / TV/ media stations and newspapers to bring all communities together.

    Get Insurance coverages on all Muslim owned Properties, Busineses and other service industry.

    Unite with all moderate minded communities and share your views with them. Remember that unity is power. Don’t be afraid or hesitate to seek justice for helpless, powerless and voiceless people. Use UNHRC to make your voice herd. Affiliate with human right organizations in the world and share their views to bring law suites against the culprits.

    Finally it is the Buddhist Extremist Racists who will destroy Sri Lanka and before allowing that to happen use your VOTE to topple Rajapakse racist Government and use it for a Regime change. Build a new Coalition party or unite with a trust worthy coalition partner for a Regime change.

    Good luck.

    ” While the Truth is still getting it’s boots ON, the Lie has travelled halfway round the world “.

    I suggest you read Wadduge’s article for a more balanced story of the sorry saga in Aluthgama-Beruwela. The pretense that these events occur in a vaccuum or isolated from events in the Middle East can no longer be held. At least Rauf Hakeem has shown courage and accepted some responsibilty.

    Latheed probably doesn’t watch Aljazeera to have not seen how poor Muslims get blasted by American weapons and by people living on American money.

    Neither he has read or heard about the atrocities committed by the Sahodareayas of the Eelaam PM who is also an American now and living on American money.

    Latheef is going after Gnanissara and the Norwegian Nikaya as if they are worse than the Modis and Netayahoos in atrocity stakes against Muslims.

    Wonder where Ms Pillai is nowadays?.

        Over 50 Sinhalese houses been burnt down completely by Muslim thugs in Aluthgama during the racial conflict and none of the Muslim leaders visited them but the President visited all those been affected.The media did not report this. Why?

  • 1

    When the media is muzzled or blocked, there is a good reason for it. It is because the government wants to cover it’s crimes, or the their crimes their servants are set out to carry out. There was no doubt we all saw this terrible racist crime, being blamed on the victims, even medical certificates were altered to suit the lies.
    We have a rogue administration running this country, and stooping to gutter crimes, like the mafia does.
    Time these scoundrel were voted off their lucrative jobs, they have stolen from this country, and are dividing it.

    •••••••••• and also who gave the orders to STF & the dumb police to safeguard the thugs who were “enjoying with looting” in front of their eyes, all during CURFEW hours .
    What is the meaning of the curfew enforced on that day ?
    Was is to control the Muslims or the Budhist thugs ?
    Doesn’t this alone prove this was a preplanned plot planned by the Govt. ???

    The author’s another useless attempt to whitewash the Muslim extremism in the county. All this due to some Muslim politicians, councils, and other groups are radicalising moderate liberal minding their own business Muslims.

    Lateef, are you aware that the Aluthgama violence was initiated by couple of local Muslims?

    Did the Muslim ministers visit Sinhalese families in the affected area around Aluthgama? No!

    Ministers Bataudeen and Hakeem were given a chance to appear and have their say and debate minister Champika by a television station, but the liars Bataudeen and Hakeem did not turn up, because those two knew that they would be exposed to the world as liars with hidden agenda.

    Muslims talk only one side of the story:

    Famous Kilinochchi Buddhist monk Ven. Gonapinuwala Sumanasara Thero lived in LTTE controlled areas until May 2009. He escaped LTTE brutality with Tamil civilians. Although LTTE committed crimes against Buddhist monks till 1995 and attacked Buddhist shrines until 1998, it didn’t attack Ven Sumanasara Thero, throw cattle heads to his temple or threaten him with violence despite restraining his movements. As with restraining movements Muslims in Aluthgama were no better than the LTTE. In addition Muslims in Aluthgama mistreated Ven. Ayagama Samitha Thero very badly as he explains in detail.



    Tamil people, mostly Hindus in Kilinochchi, provided regular sustenance to the monk despite not being Buddhists. Muslims in Aluthgama should hang their heads in shame for the despicable treatment given to Ven. Ayagama Samitha Thero. To make matters worse, Muslim leaders and civil groups whitewash these uncouth Muslims. This trend foretells a grave disaster that awaits the local Muslim community which cannot correct its shortcomings.

    Muslims must accept their culpability of starting the Aluthgama riot; resolve not to repeat it and integrate into the Lankan society better, not with an Ummah in the Middle East.

      First don’t you know that Ayagama Samitha Thero is a registered member of BBS Racist organization.

      Listen to following interview UNP MP Palitha Thewarapperuma gave to DM.


      This whole set-up was a pre-planned drama carried out by BBS,GOTA,MR, INTELLIGENCE BUREAU, STF, POLICE AND SINHALA THUGS NEXUS.

      Even Aluthgama police did not write Ayagama Samitha Thero’s complaint knowing that he was lying. Nobody including reporters and journalists were allowed to interview the Three Muslims who were framed by this Ayagama Samitha BBS racist thug.Where are his wounds.Where is the hospital ticket. These are all drama carried out under GOTA/ BBS instructions. Who claymore bombed the Aluthgama Mosque and who shot the two Muslims dead and who torched the Panadura No limit store…….

      Therefore Jimmy, don’t be a Dumb A..s to deceive CT readers. There should be a limit to your un-proved substances. CT readers are more mature enough to UNDERSTAND AND ANALYSE THE TRUTH and Rajapakses drama game plan.

      Truth will come out at the correct time BY HOOK OR BY CROOK.

      Please stop deceiving CT readers.

    The events in Aluthgama and Beruwala unmasked the Jihadi terrorist who were hiding behind the their dens of terror, commonly called the mosques. Lanka has tens of thousands of these mosques which are none other than bunkers to be used in the end game that the Wahabi fanatics plan to unleash around the time the older Sinhalese become infirm and die out. At that time the Sinhala population would be less then 50% and among them many will be older people. The Muslim population will be overwhelmingly young, under 35 years.

    Then the terror that is now gripping the Christians on Egypt and the Middle East will be familiar to the Sinhalese, their temples will be smashed to pulp, and the famous Temple of the Tooth will be adorned with a major Islamic dome. It will be the most important mosque in Lanka.

    I implore the poor Sinhalese to at least now come to their senses, and attack the Jihadism and the fanatics without remorse and fear. DO NOT let this last chance to save your country and ancient civilization slip away. YOU WILL NOT GET ANOTHER CHANCE!! The All your ancient statues and grand civilization in Anuradpura and other places will be wiped out by these marauding barbarians. They will butcher your men, just like the unimaginable barbarism they display when slaughtering cows and other animals. They will rape your women and slaughter them like many sheep, never ever forget the unending horror other countries have undergone under Muslims.

    This is how quran treats non-believers:

    KORAN commands to kill infidels:

    Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. – Sura 2:98

    On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. – Sura 2:161

    Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. – 2:191

    Fight against them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme. (different translation: ) Fight them until there is no persecution and the religion is God’s entirely. – Sura 2:193 and 8:39

    Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it. – 2:216
    (different translation: ) Prescribed for you is fighting, though it is hateful to you.

    ….. martyrs…. Enter heaven – Surah 3:140-43

    If you should die or be killed in the cause of Allah, His mercy and forgiveness would surely be better than all they riches they amass. If you should die or be killed, before Him you shall all be gathered. – 3:157-8

    You must not think that those who were slain in the cause of Allah are dead. They are alive, and well-provided for by their Lord. – Surah 3:169-71

    Let those fight in the cause of God who sell the life of this world for the hereafter. To him who fights in the cause of God, whether he is slain or victorious, soon we shall give him a great reward. – Surah 4:74

    Those who believe fight in the cause of God, and those who reject faith fight in the cause of evil. – 4:76

    But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. – 4:89

    Therefore, we stirred among them enmity and hatred, which shall endure till the Day of Resurrection, when Allah will declare to them all that they have done. – 5:14

    O believers, take not Jews and Christians as friends; they are friends of each other. Those of you who make them his friends is one of them. God does not guide an unjust people. – 5:54

    Make war on them until idolatry is no more and Allah’s religion reigns supreme – 8:39

    O Prophet! Exhort the believers to fight. If there are 20 steadfast men among you, they shall vanquish 200; and if there are a hundred, they shall rout a thousand unbelievers, for they are devoid of understanding. – 8:65

    It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land. – 8:67

    Allah will humble the unbelievers. Allah and His apostle are free from obligations to idol-worshipers. Proclaim a woeful punishment to the unbelievers. – 9:2-3

    When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. – 9:5

    Believers! Know that idolators are unclean. – 9:28

    Fight those who believe neither in God nor the Last Day, nor what has been forbidden by God and his messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are People of the Book, until they pay the tribute and have been humbled. – 9:29 (another source: ) The unbelievers are impure and their abode is hell. (another source: ) Humiliate the non-Muslims to such an extent that they surrender and pay tribute.

    Whether unarmed or well-equipped, march on and fight for the cause of Allah, with your wealth and your persons. – 9:41

    O Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites. Be harsh with them. Their ultimate abode is hell, a hapless journey’s end. – 9:73

    Allah has purchased of their faithful lives and worldly goods, and in return has promised them the Garden. They will fight for His cause, kill and be killed. – 9:111

    Fight unbelievers who are near to you. 9:123 (different translation:
    Believers! Make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Let them find harshness in you. (another source: ) Ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers….

    As for those who are slain in the cause of Allah, He will not allow their works to perish. He will vouchsafe them guidance and ennoble their state; He will admit them to the Paradise He has made known to them. – 10:4-15

    Allah has cursed the unbelievers and proposed for them a blazing hell. – 33:60

    Unbelievers are enemies of Allah and they will roast in hell. – 41:14

    When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens. – 47:4
    (different translation: ) When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads, and when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly.

    Those who are slain in the way of Allah – he will never let their deeds be lost. Soon will he guide them and improve their condition, and admit them to the Garden, which he has announced for them. – 47:5

    Muslims are harsh against the unbelievers, merciful to one another. – 48:25

    Muhammad is Allah’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to the unbelievers but merciful to one another. Through them, Allah seeks to enrage the unbelievers. – 48:29

    Prophet! Make war on the unbelievers and the hypocrites and deal sternly with them. Hell shall be their home, evil their fate. – 66:9

    The unbelievers among the People of the Book and the pagans shall burn forever in the fire of hell. They are the vilest of all creatures. – 98:51

    Fight them so that Allah may punish them at your hands, and put them to shame. (verse cited in Newsweek 2/11/02)

      You are so knowledgeable on Islamic matters. That is good.

      However I wish you will also educate yourself about Buddhism. You see what Gnanasara preaches is hatred and violence. Buddha preached love and non violence. Yet you defend Gnanasara at every possible juncture.
