‘Defaming Allah’ In Kandy

By Colombo Telegraph

In order to hurt the Muslims in Kandy, filthy English wording has been written on the iron doors of a closed shop.

So far no action has been taken whatsoever against the hardline Buddists for these kinds of racism or activities carried out against Muslims or Islam, Jaffnamuslim.com reports.

Issuing a report the Centre for Policy Alternatives   last week said 65 cases of attacks on religious places of worship between May 2009 and January 2013. Direct attacks have been reported from all provinces of Sri Lanka, making clear that the threat is not restricted to particular areas. Most of the reported incidents were from the Western province (16), followed by the Eastern province (12), the Southern province (11) and the North-Western province (9).

Two weeks ago Mahara mosque also vandalised.

    What a bunch of idiots. Inciting and provoking is not getting the results they want. So far the Muslims have shown amazing restraint and not stooping to gutter levels. Hope it stays this way.
    The mutts who did this obviously is just trying to stoke the fires. It would be classy for the Muslims to show they are above the ugliness.

    In some nations defamation is punished, and the governments do not tolerate it.

      In srilanka the govt is behind this and what can you expect from the lowest grades of rulers in the country? shame and i just cant understand what the good majority sinhala people are doing to condemn these lowest of the low grade actions. Is it because of the KULAYA Caste system that they are doing this?

      Muslims have undergone severe humiliation,places of worship attacked,businesses attacked and to their credit they have acted with restraint despite all the provocation.All this goes on while the police are present.If one were to conclude that it is orchestrated and carried out by the government,he will not be wrong. In fact Gota opened their new office in Galle.
      Another point to note is that when these things are organized the BOSS
      is out of the country.He is expected back for MATTALA AIRPORT OPENING PERHAPS FIRST AIRCRAFT TO LAND. LETS WAIT AND SEE !!!He has still not spoken out.HE MAY MAKE A STATEMENT ON ARRIVAL.
      The next meeting OF BBS is in Kandy and the next item on the agenda is
      womens clothes.
      Its time the government put a stop to this.
      The Mahanayake of Asgiriya has come down strongly against the BBS.
      Malwatte is silent!! UNP- BULLSHITTING AS USUAL.

      THE NEXT QUESTION IS WHETHER THE BBS ARE MONKS OR UNDERWORLD MONKEYS
      AND ARMY DESERTERS..

        You all are accusing the government for being behind the BBS.In that case why the saviors of Muslims like Aswar,Hakeem,Cadar,Fawsy and the rest are sleeping comfortably with the very government that is accused for being behind the whole episode.Ultimately its money and privileges and they don’t care whats happening to their own people.

          Dear Lion,

          This is not the time for frivolous rhetoric. You should be a Muslim to know and feel the anxiety, tension and stress.

          Let me place this in context for you again.

          Its unimaginable how ordinary decent folk work themselves into frenzied mobs, turn up at the homes of targets like blood thirsty hyenas ready for the kill.A beggar in a suburb was beaten to death in broad daylight.

          So we know what it is to be caught up when organized gangs run riot.

          Most of the Muslim leaders have been cowed down with threats of dire consequences. Examples have been made of many patriots who had dared to defy the ruling elite.

          So they know what to expect. I am sure they are hopeful that the powerful ruling coterie would come to their senses, hold back these war mongering monkeys at the right time.

          These are terrible times and we can only hope for the best

              I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR THEM.
              IN ISLAM WE ARE ASKED NOT TO APPOINT A PERSON TO A POST WHEN HE SEEKS IT;
              It is related that Abu Musa said, “I came to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, with two men of the Ash’ari tribe. I said, ‘I did not know that they were seeking posts.’ He said, ‘We will not appoint to our posts any who seek them.'”
              IN SHORT, IN ISLAM, WE ARE ASKED TO CONSULT EACH OTHER AND PICK THE MOST DESERVING-CONSENSUAL POLITICS.

    This kind of action will hurt not only Sri Lankkan Muslims but also majority of the citizens. Knowingly or unknowingly this is the best way utilized to end the rajapaksa regime themselve.

    However, its very clear that Maha Sanga is scared of openning of objective contribution on this regard, bacause BBS lead by Gota will undermine them.

    I am sure there are many local and international stakeholder behind this hate campaign who use Rajapakses to get rid of the Rajapakses. I also do not think Gota is using his brain at all when he stimulate hate projects in this country.

    Almighty Allah is the only God to the universe whatever and however said and done. The sinister element can not even cause any damage to His name by doing this. Muslims are not fools like the ones who are doing this. Muslims know what is happening and why is it all happening. Allah is Great. We are seeking refugee from Allah who directed us to be patient and seek his blessing. He is enough for us to protect from this evils. Muslims are decent and not like envious certain uncivilized monks. It is appropriate to ask “What is practiced by BBS Monks are the teaching of Buddisms? ” If it is absolutely correct, Buddism can not be a religion, but a myth.

If you object to that opinion than you can explain why, and what you know to be the universality of God and His creations. You don’t have to chide some one in public and belittle hisd beliefs. I too believe in Allah to be the one and only true God for all of mankind from Prophet Adam until end of time. Any objections?

          Do you respect other Gods? The problem is that people like you do not accept there are other Gods – if you do not accept something how can you respect it? This is where I disagree with Islam. Muslims need to learn a lot to accept the existence of other religions. BBS is exploiting some of Islams irrational preaching.

If that is what your interpretation of Islam is may Allah help you to suffer and die as early as possible so that you don’t poison the minds of the true followers of Islam. You are a disgrace to the religion.

    This vandalism is of the worst kind. There will be repercussions, since hurting others religious sentiments will always have a heavy pay back time for those who commit them. There is only so much that people can bear in terms of patience and tolerance. When Allah decides that enough is enough and decides to do something about it, it will be like hell hath no fury like Allah scorned. So to all those who keep doing these despicable acts through ignorance and intent to cause backlash, only time will tell. The nore patience the Muslims bear, the more severe will be their (criminals) punishment from Allah Himself. They will learn their lessons soon. Allah can take of Himself, and doesn’t require anyones help, afterall all life are His own creations. This has been proven time and time again.

      Man what BS you espouse. Being minority parties, both Tamils and Muslim leaders need to take a stand to prop up a coalition to form government. Going the Geneva was for the sake of the whole country, to put forward the notion that there is peace and no need for resolution. Muslims will never forget how they were ethnically cleansed from Jaffna by the LTTE which was claiming Tamil leadership. However you look at it, Muslims can stand on their own to fight their battles as they have faithin God, and not on a tyrant.

      Not all the Muslims in Sri Lanka speak Tamil. Those living among Tamils mostly speak Tamil and those living among Sinhalese speak Sinhala. The Muslims in Tamil Nadu speak Tamil, those in Kerala speak Malayalam, those in
      Andhra speak Telungu, those in the North speak Hindi, and it goes on. The language that one speaks does not determine his political allegience. It is mostly material reasons that determine that. So there are Tamil leaders who cross-over from one to another majority party that is power. Similarly there are Sinhalese and Muslim politicians too of the same character. The Tamil people were repeatedly massacred from 1956. Is it Hindu Gods’ punishment of Tamil people because for what their politicians. And you seem to be happy about what is now happening to the Muslims. But I, as a Muslim, feel hurt for what has happened and happening now to the Tamils and rise to protest against any harm happening to them. Let not your humane heart become that of a lion.

    To the BBS let these words ring a bell,As for the evil that they engage
    themselves in, only time will tell.Worldly pride and power are humbled, Against the spiritual forces they do get stumbled.The Boru Bala Sena ought to avoid doing things that are distasteful and evil. They can falter when they engage themselves against their will. BBS should realize that God is the friend of the friendless, He is the only hope of the hopeless.He offers help to the down-trodden and helpless. And finally the victims of BBS evil will emerge victorious.BBS ought to realize that life in this world is probationary, Before it is too late, mending their ways is absolutely necessary. Don’t you think that monks in yellow-robes were behaving in a manner derogatory, Their behavior doesn’t befit the noble values of the clergy. Your monks have given Buddhism a new twist and revelation.That Buddhism is a religion of terror and aggression. MIMA

    It was claimed last week Muslim businesses have lost more than 50% of their income since the campaign against them intensified island wide.
    The State has allowed matters to go far too far against a smaller and useful community, who are threatened 24×7. All these enterprises provided a useful and necessary service. Where is governance?

      Passive resistance is the only weapon. Passive resistance does not imply no resistance. The Muslim position must be heard loud and clear. The Sinhalese and Tamils should make their voice heard in defense of the Muslims. This is an opportunity to show that passive resistance can yet work in Sri Lanka. United we stand, divided we individually fall.

    At the closing session of the UNHCR SRi Lanka review, Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe said “our constitution protects all religions”, “there are lesser attacks on religious institutions..”. What a liar he is. Shame on you Mahinda. If the constitution protects all the religions why won’t the government of sri lanka allow muslims to practice their religion by using Halal Food? Mahinda has also forgotten that the Bodu Bala Sena’s attack on Muslims is a new attack on religions, which was not there before. What “Bull S—” is he saying. Liar of the highest order after the foreign minister of Sri Lanka and Palitha Kohona. I can assure you as Palitha Kohona and GL Pieris were not at this session of UNHCR, next session Mahinda Samarasinghe will not be there as they cannot face the other countries to whom they have lied. Sri Lanka is a nation of “LIARS”.

    This type of provocation should be ignored by all Muslims. I live in Kandy and as the BBS meeting approaches more and more provocative posters are appearing and although I find it distressing I adopt a patient attitude. Allah is the term used for God by not only Muslims even by Christians in Arab countries and Christians in Malaysia also use it in the Malay language bible. So God will himself take care of such insults. Muslims do not succumb to provocation for Allah’s sake. These bad people who do not represent the vast majority of Buddhists want to enact another kolahalaya against Muslims.

          Even if there is no God, we would have invented one. There was a need and there is a need. However, we have also made this God, an excuse to fight amongst ourselves. The concept or the reality of God, also exposes the base and the sublime in human nature.

          An agnostic who argued sincerely all his life that there was no God, went heaven on his death. Whereas the gnostic or believer, who argued the case of the existence of God, despite harboring serious reservations, went to hell on his death. This story underlines the importance of truth and honesty in our lives.

            An agnortic is not a person who believes that there in no God, but rather is one who doesn’t claim to know if any gods exist or not, no matter what their reasons or how they approach the question of whether any gods exists. Usually called ‘Free Thinkers’. Whereas those who believe there is no God and refuse to believe anything else, are the athiests. Others are theists, mono and poly.

            In Islam, Muslims have no problems in accepting that God does exist as the Holy Quran reveals a clear message of His existence. Just reading the translation gives clear evidence of whi is in charge.. It is like the current, or power running along a wire. You can see the wire, but you have faith that it is carrying a voltage, and therefor not dare touch it. Same principle.

          Inayatullah Khan had visited England in the year 1909. On a Sunday when it was raining hard, he met Sir James Jeans, the famous astronomer of the Cambridge University, going to a church with a Bible clutched under his arm. Mr. Inayatullah Khan expressed his astonishment that a person of such a universal fame like him is going to pray in a church. Sir James Jeans asked Mr. Inayatullah Khan to come to his house and have tea with him in the evening. Accordingly, Mr. Inayatullah Khan went to his house in the evening. Sir James Jeans was lost in his thoughts, he asked What your question was? But without waiting for an answer, he gave an inspiring description of the creation of the celestial bodies, their motions and the astonishing order to which they adhere. His voice and his movements clearly showed that he was deeply impressed by the Power and Majesty of God. He said You know Inayatullah Khan when I behold God’s marvelous feats of creation, my whole being trembles in awe at His majesty. When I go to church I bow my head and say, ‘Lord, how great you are’ and not only my lips, but every particle of my body joins in uttering these words. I obtain incredible peace and joy from my prayer. Compared to others, I receive a thousand times more fulfillment from my prayers. So tell me, Inayatullah Khan, now do you understand why I go to Church?

          Hearing this Mr. Inayatullah Khan told Sir James Jeans that his words reminded him of a verse of the Holy Qura’n which he would like to quote if permitted. Sir James Jeans replied: Of course. Mr. Inayatullah Khan then quoted the following verse:
          ” And among the mountains are streaks, white and red, of diverse hues and others raven black; And in like manner, there are men and beasts and cattle, of various colours. Only those of His servants who possess knowledge fear Allah.”(35:27,28)

          Sir James Jeans was deeply impressed by these words of the Holy Qura’n he exclaimed:
          ”What was that? It is those who have knowledge who fear God. Wonderful! How extraordinary! It has taken me fifty years of continual study and observation to realize this fact. Who taught it to Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)? Is this really in the Qura’n? If so, you can record my testimony that the Qura’n is an inspired Book. Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was illiterate. He could not have learnt this immensely important fact on his own. God must have taught it to him. Incredible! How extraordinary!

      I live in Kandy too and we are hopeful no untoward incident will happen. There are posters everywhere demeaning Muslims.

      Leaflets have been distributed.

      A young Sinhala family in their early 20’s and not so well to do wanted to do the LRT after the birth of their 2nd Child. The hospital staff refused and abused the young mother as a traitor. She got a DP injection because she insisted and pleaded with them that she couldn’t afford a third baby as her husband didn’t have a steady job

      My Sinhala friends have been told to leave two “Muslim owned” mobile operators and shift to the patriotic one!

      When I saw the posters I could only feel sorry for the sick minds. Gauthama Buddha has once siad, ” hatred is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die”

        Don’t worry Nabil. Please remember Allah is there to protect you. Not only you but he protect all the weak, helpless and powerless. That’s why he does not allow our country to come up. Because of these types of No God, No Allahy but only followers of a blind Therewada Buddhist Philosophy. Buddhism is not a religion like you or me……it is a Philosophy……and a blind one.

        Soon these fanatics will follow their king pin Soma…rama.

        Just ignore these over fed, highly blocked testosterone bulls who try to release excess energy…..and looking for outlets.
        Just imagine what these fanatics will do if they had the power, brains and wealth like Americans, Europeans and Japanese…. They would have destroy the whole world. That’s why Allah keep them like this for ever. That’s why Allah did not give horns to horses. Same here.

        Your Allah and my God will deliver justice on them at his time and make them look fools among the world very soon.Therefore you should not go crazy and get mad for what they do. Just wonder what their level of nature. This is just testosterone gone crazy… without an outlet. Nothing else.

    According to most religons there is retribution. In Buddhism it is called Karma. So those who do evil will reap evil. No good come of harrasing people, just as the country is now suffering for all the killings that happened over the last 60 yrs.

    Muslims need not react. Allah is sufficient for us

    “Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposer of affairs.” 3:173

      Before it was strictly Vegan and fruits only diet now changed to optional vegetarian diet….optional now changed to even roast Chicken, roast beef, Crab,shrimp, lobster,thora malu, bala malu, karavala,ox tail soup, wild boar,venison,Curd, fruit salad, cake, chocolate, pudding, vatalappan,kola kenda, wisky, brandy,gin, arrack, kiasippu, marlboro, suruttu, sutthi…etc…etc… If anybody need more info. I can produce…..

      There’s a big diffrerence betwen God/ Allah and a Philosopher.

      Better teach social science, how to interact in society with all communities,group plays, sports,drama, social and family values, respect to others in society, problem solving through dialogue, debates, brotherhood among all races,respect equal rights for every body etc….in schools.

      This will give better results than PREACHING BORU BANA WITH NO VALUES.

      Buddhism or any philosophy or religion without practice and practical experience and values in society is pure fake, hollow and deceive.

      We saw it when tsunami hit train….and some people stealing gold chains, rings,watches and pick pockets from dead corpses and from people who were hurt.

      FIRST ELIMINATE BUDDHIST SINHALA DOCTRINE FROM CONSTITUTION AND INTRODUCE REWARDS AND PROPER PLACE GIVEN ONLY TO HARD WORKING, PERSEVERING, MOST SUITABLE AND TALENTED CANDIDEATES……AND NOT THE SINHALA BUDDHIST LOGO JOKERS, DRAMA ACTORS AND ASS LICKING PAMBAYAS.

    I think its time for Chandrika to contest the Presidential election again and win. In order to win she should promise to abolish the Executive Presidency, Promise a public inquiry for all atrocities committed by the Politicians, Civil Servants, Police, Armed Forces, Judiciary and religious groups and punish those proven guilty. This should be on the radio and telecasted for the view of the public. Then she should form a National Government abolish Executive Presidency and then retire from Politics.

The reasons for wanting to have another go at Presidency are, She tasted it, liked it and wants more. Thats it. Nothing exciting to give to country. One eyed, everyday boozing binges and thoroughly enjoying the good life, the only good that can be said was that she was not into family nepotism, as is the present leader. Other than that, her thinking was like that of a six year old. Pulled the rug from under Ranil’s feet after he genuinely won the elections. Enough is enough. People are sick of her poor administration. She has had her chance and time for someone who really cares for the welfare of the country, orepared to sort out genuine issues of all minor parties. I can go on and on, but you know whar I mean with word ‘ideal’. A just ruler.

    ‘Allah’, the creator of this universe will not need and does not need the help of any individual to protect his religion and the world he thus created with his own agenda as to how he started and how he will end it. We humans’ are just passerby individuals created by him called MANKIND to obey him and worship him in the manner he has required us to through many prophets and religions, finally revealing the ‘Quran ‘ as his last word.Therein lies true guidance to one and all if he/she is willing to take it.
    We(humans’) are his only creation who have the power to decide on what is good and what is bad for ourselves.
    The current trend of trying to hurt the trend of Muslims and Islam is the doing of some short sighted and egotists whose main aim would be to attain cheap publicity and material gain.Depicting the picture of PIG or writing graffiti on walls by these anonymous persons to hurt the sentiments of muslims’ is a joke.But, sadly it could provoke the equally egotists or overbearing muslim of the same wave lengths of the aggressors.Allah has given guidance to the true muslim has to how to overcome such situations through his prophet and the Quran. When the need arises a muslim should strictly adhere to same and be swift and precise to the point.
    Finally, there is some facts about the PIG(which is the favorite symbol of the oppressors)which i heard somewhere in a sermon which i wish to share.
    The Pig by nature of its creation(bodily structure) does not see the sky until it is strapped turned upside down for slaughter by his master. At that moment, it praises Allah for showing it such a clean and beautiful sight and thanks him for putting it out of the misery of a life it had undergone in this dirty unclean world.
    No wonder some choose the symbol of Pig to seek a piggish end.
    RELIGION GIVES MEANING AND PURPOSE TO HUMAN LIVES AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF MAN TRANSCENDS THE SOVERIEGNITY OF NATIONS.

        “Verily in the heavens and the earth are signs for those who believe. And in the creation of yourselves, and the fact that animals are scattered (through the earth), are signs for those of assured faith. And in the alternation of night and day, and that fact that Allah sends down sustenance from the sky, and revives therewith the earth after its death, and in the change of the winds, are signs for those who are wise” (45:3-5).

        You may honestly believe that Muslims are killing one another. But here a few point to ponder over.

        Why didn’t Muslims kill one another before American invasion of Iraq? They had a relatively peaceful history of over a millennium.

        What is the common denominator in all those countries where ‘Muslims’ are killing Muslims? Isn’t it some of foreign intervention?

        Western intelligence agents have been caught, who were dressed like local muslims, and traveling in civilian areas with high grade explosives? Sometime ago, some such Brit agents were arrested by the Iraqi police and detained in a police station. But they were forcibly removed from the police stations by the British army, which drove its tanks into police stations.Why? Weren’t they up to something nasty, really nasty?

Muslim women are abused verbally and even attacked recently for wearing the hijab, and complaints lodged utterly ignored by the police, how cruel can they get?? How can you convince yourself to be even more patient?? or would you?? its difficult. Only a muslim would know, or you could even ask a tamil as they were once oppressed. We all seek for a solution soon. We collectively need the voice of true buddhists and all muslims to fight against such pig-mannered behaviour. its getting out of hand.

        I truly agree with you. Look at today’s news that at Bandaranaike Airport a British national was sent back because he had a Buddha tatoo on his arm.
        As long as he did not have it on his Private parts….who cares where he has it. It is very common to see in South America, Christian Icons and crossesand rosaries tatooed all over their bodies, but nobody bothers. They do that as a special protection from God and not to humiliate him.

        That’s why I told before that our Therawada Buddhism have hi-jacked our country, economy, social life, communities and Government. this has to be stoppef if Country needs to be developped. Otherwise eternally we will be in the home grown Therawada Mud hole.

        You could wonder how premitive and Low mindset our rulers have. This British national would have warned to cover it and travel. Why send some one home Just for a tatoo.This may be President’s last failed British visit Tit for Tat game. Let Basil Rajapakse wait with open arms to receive 2 million tourists at Mattala airport. Donkey are born to be donkeys and not lions.

        Our crooks wear White outside but pure Dark inside. It is how their Hearts and minds work.Always looking for trouble while preaching Boru Bana 24/7 in radio/ TV.

        There’s a saying that when a dog bite or bark …..you don’t bite or bark them……Only thing is to treat that dog as a dog and corner it and leave it alone. Just ignore the rabid dogs, but keep a knife or a can of pepper spray as a defensive weapon. Also “Kalu gal” black stone and basic defense moves could help.

        Always go in groups. Surely those Gana that…ayas will find their destiny when they start eating Punnakku ‘coconut husks’ and thanakola “grass”

    Look at the words he utters, the tone he speaks and his actions. Can anyone accept the Secretary of the Boda Bala Sena to be a religious clergy. What a disgrace is he to the entire Buddhist clergy. A Sinhala friend of mine said ‘aya nikang kuliyata bera ganawa’ (meaning that he is beating the drum for what he is paid to do). The question is ‘kawdu ayata kuliya gevannay’ (who is paying him). Anybody’s guess.

    Peaceful measures have to be taken to control the explosive Muslim birthrate in Sri Lanka. The Chinese government was able to do this by offering incentives to families that had only 1 child, the so-called “one child policy.” If the Muslim population continues to grow exponentially, then Muslims will ask for more and more political power, land rights, business privileges etc. This will lead to unwanted problems with the majority Sinhalese community.

          Muslims are demonised, pretty much like the jews were under Hitler. Such demonisation has goals!

          It is justify our violence upon them. It is to discredit their resistance to our violence on them. It is to kill them off. It is to continue with our colonialism of them.

          We have a lot idiots to buy any such anti muslim propaganda! Or Tel Aviv has enough money to hire coolies to do the dirty propaganda. Demonsation of muslims is a sad reality, and it seems to be working.

          Taliban was created by ISI with covert support of USA and its allies. Al Quida was the creation of USA with the support of Saudis. Most of Middle East medieval Kingdom were designed and initially sustained by UK and later USA.

          Through out the world you would have seen most dictatorships controlled by USA and UK for their own benefit (interests). In the past 75 years the West was holding back democratisation of these medieval kingdoms. Dictators and Kings are seen as USA’s partners. With these type of great help what do you expect to achieve?

            Dear Native Veddah,

            Knowledge is power! I do not agree with American foreign policy, but the Sharia Law that the Taliban imposed is barbaric and dates from the Stone Age. It makes the Nuremberg Laws (if you know what that is) look like a barbie doll in the store window.

            Some Taliban restrictions and mistreatment of women include the:

            1- Complete ban on women’s work outside the home, which also applies to female teachers, engineers and most professionals. Only a few female doctors and nurses are allowed to work in some hospitals in Kabul.

            2- Complete ban on women’s activity outside the home unless accompanied by a mahram (close male relative such as a father, brother or husband).

            3- Ban on women dealing with male shopkeepers.

            4- Ban on women being treated by male doctors.

            5- Ban on women studying at schools, universities or any other educational institution. (Taliban have converted girls’ schools into religious seminaries.)

            6- Requirement that women wear a long veil (Burqa), which covers them from head to toe.

            7- Whipping, beating and verbal abuse of women not clothed in accordance with Taliban rules, or of women unaccompanied by a mahram.

            8- Whipping of women in public for having non-covered ankles.

            I cannot post the complete list here. Just understand that under American occupation, at least girls can go to school and do something useful with their lives.

      How can 9.7% of a minority population be a threst to more than 70% of the majority population?? Just use your head Leslie without just swallong everything BBS says and regurgitating it. All that the majority population have to do is bear more than one child to maintain that ratio. These are not what should be attacked, but the creation of new Casinos, brothel houses and liquor sales outlets. Not on what what different people eat, wear and their personal choice in child bearing. The Goat has his own agenda for this country, and is supporting BBS to create mischief as a distraction so that the entire country will be busy watching this spectacle unfold, whilst the largest chain casino operators from around the world are visiting the country to set up shop, with tax incentives which means more profit to keep, and they cannot resist the temptations. Don’t you know he is trying to destroy ‘Bauddha ratey sanskrutiya’ and it is not not the Muslims to blame, but your own kind. We Muslims are thye first to oppose all of this due to our religious beliefs, and it is his intention to break the will of those who oppose. Prostitues from exotic countries are being clinically introduced to to service high end clients, and loquor licenses issued to import booze for the Casinos. Very soon Sri Lanka will be famous as Sin-city of the South Asia.

      please see the Sri Lankan population statistics web site before getting too alarmed about growth of a minority population.

      Only way to control population growth is to empower the women (education, nutrition and employment). So empower the women in conservative/marginalised communities.

      This is the only progressive and rational way to go forward.

        CSM,

        Yes I agree with you. Look at our population. Many lower middle class and poor look more sick and half grown skeletons than some of poor african countries…..and much lower than our time.

        It is more of a quantity than quality issue….. and the quantities are shown more in poor families.

        I see there’s only two ways available to find a solution for this under nourished, poor, unhealthy life styles among poor… and to solve to produce quality thyan quantity house hold children.

        First we have to teach social science to every student from grade three onwards. Starting from hygine, to quality food preparation and healthy eating habits, life style, Avoid alcohol or limiting them, family and social life etc. \

        People do not even know how to mix a dirnk (alcohol) where ice cubes play a major roll to disolve liquor and toxins in the stomach. This is called safe drinking method where most eastern europeans follow when they drink bottles of vodka.Our veterans just gulp them….while many others just drink Poison Kasippu….due to Rajapakses increasing price of alcohol every other month. This is very harmful to our society, where even Govt.regular alcohol smell and taste like audi-toilette.

        Also our food preparations are not balanced, healthy and nutritious….and schools should taught how to have a balanced diet with Breakfast, lunch and dinner….with proper protein,carbs, fiber,minarals and vitamins and proper calorie intakes at various ages etc. Our type of over cooking really kills all the nutrients and proper cooking should be taught in school.

        When it comes to relationships,love making, family life and child bearing, it’s a matter of “Enna Penna” type Quantity without any quality, and should be taught in schools.Also natural and artifical contraceptive methods and prevention of diseases.

        Therefore our whole social, youth and family life structure, laws, duties and responsibilities have to be taught and re-vamped.

        Also there should be more books written in Social and Family lives and should be taught in schools.

        I agree that we have a very poor standard of social and family life among Lower middle class and among poor, and these could be corrected with simple teaching as a subject in schools.

        I feel Planned parenthood, quality family and social life and child upbringing should be implemented, educated and taught in schools.

          Quality and quantity of a Homo erectus does not save a country. A humble human with creative knowledge to serve the country and his own kith is that an asset of a country.

          A shrivelled coconut is on a puffed price. A kilo of fish cost 3 ‘fowl’ded. A loafy bread with specs of weevil is a luxury for an aspiring Bourgeoisie.

          Naturally, now we should be zealously concentrating towards the liberal ideals of the Revolution of France not jealousy or antagonism.

          One of the causes of the French Revolution are those significant factors that shortage of Rye and Flour propelled the sentiments of the masses to fight against the state and that no ‘PAIN’ became the pain of the Aristocracy and the pining of the masses.

      If the bodu bala is scared of the explosion of the muslims fraternity,there is only one thing that they can do,have a dozen wives ,another ,dozen mistresses,another dozen partners,within no time the population of the sinhala buddhist will be the highest in the world,the bodu bala is making
      a mockery of their people.All true buddhist are not racial and vain ,they are good and helpful people.Please ask the bodu bala to stop this nonsense.
      So what if the muslims produce fast, who are they (the bodu bala) to control creation of
      of humans ,are they not killing the human species even before they are born. .

            I also believe in Quality than Quantity.

            We Sinhala people have the quantity than the quality in our Lower middle class and among poor.

            No point blaming Muslims when we cannot take care of our own children.

            There should be some kind of limit to Lower middle class and poor people’s families.

            Also a doctor should certify the couple on physical health and re-productive health before marriage as many off springs look weak, under weight and un healthy when they born..

              Lester,
              I have moved with a couple of Jews in a Western country and was also moved with some Arabs in a Middle Eastern country.

              Only thing with Arabs was that I could not communicate with them due to language problem and only with very few greeting words and gestures and sign language. But I was never invited to their homes…but shared home made food in the office whenever he brings. (We had an in-house caterer)

              I don’t want to write about both of them here but have a lot of experience in their lifestyles.both have good and bad sides.

              But the only thing I found amazing with Jews were the way they organise their lives and everything such as their PERSONAL, OFFICE AND FAMILY LIVES,CHILDREN, TRADITIONS….everything pre planned. Much organised,work to a roster, responsible and parental direction and family guidence. They are the most careful when it comes spending, investing and child upbringing and family planning. Just a few stuff. But lot more……..

            Agreed. It does make economic sense. What is needed is empowering women and educating them. What BBS has done gone and created a bigger mess.

            First having or not having a child is a right that should not be taken away from women.

            Second refusing to allow them to make their choices freely and putting social taboos and pressure is uncivilized.

            Finally, we must respect and adhere to international covenants that we are signatory to, and not disrespect them because we see demons in every corner.

            Catholics and Muslims will not abort a fetus, so women need to be empowered and educated so that they can make those choices themselves.

            We don’t want Lester, Lion, Leela along with BBS/JHU making those choices for them!

            Much as you zionist apologists love to brag about the achievement of Jews, your ignorance and hatred for Muslims has made you ignore the many achievements by Muslim scholars.

            The zionists in Israel have mastered the art of land grabs and building illegal settlements.
            They have been condemned by the UN, the EU and the US for these crimes.
            Israel has over 200 UN resolutions against it.
            Be proud Lester, as you defend an apartheid nation.

            Your despicable comments only show us here that your continued attack on innocent Muslims here in Sri Lanka, is an indication of how those poor Palestinian people are ill treated, and what they must suffer. The culling of babies should have been done by your mother.

              @ Mimi,

              By Muslim scholars you are surely referring to the Shiite Iranians (Persians. I have rarely heard of a Sunni Muslim “scholar.” As I have explained before, Iranians are a forward-moving people because of their pre-Islamic Zoroastrian past. Zed-Avesta is a brilliant book; far superior to any book in Islam. Maybe this is reason why the Sunni Muslims hate Iran. House of Saud supports the US/Zionist sanctions on Iran. House of Saud says Saudi Arabia will go for a nuclear weapon if Iran gets one. Of course, the stupid Saudis can barely pick their own nose without American help; they will raise oil prices higher than Ozone Layer until the Americans give them a nuke.

              As I told you before, Israel fought a war against the Arab countries and won. When you lose a war, you give up land. Otherwise, I can say that Turkey belongs to Greece and parts of Poland belong to Germany. When you lose a war, you are at the mercy of the victor. Have you forgotten what happened to the inhabitants of Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem after your religious leader captured those places with the sword?

              Both Mimi and Lester,

              First of all I have a deep sorrow on Palestine people who are in a huge outdoor prison camp surrounded by Israel. i have seen many documentaries on their lives.

              The only thing I cannot come to any conculation is Middle East. I was touring in Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Yemen, Saudi, UAE, etc…etc…and I saw their lives and culture. I also herd the cannon fire during Iran/ Iraq war.

              With all that I am still confused to understand as to what truly going on there…….Is there a third party that manupulates everything over there. Why nobody from Arabia or Africa came to help Gadaffi……..Why Al-kaida is against Saudi government…..Why no Arabs coming to help Bashar al-Assad in Syria……..Why Saudi does not help Palestine refugees……
              Who is really in control in Yemen………..why alkaida is floating in Yemen………..who is supporting them………

              There are so many things going on in ME apart from PLO/. Israel conflict. It is mind boggling…..but my heart is burning to see people suffering for nothing.

              If anybody have any solid answer is great.

              With Lester, yes after Iran/Iraq war and also after US /Iraq war, I think Iran learned a lot and many outside countries also helped Iran with technology and armament building. Now Iran is a strong military power and Saudi is feared against Iran. Only thing Saqudi has a security pact with US. For how long……I don’t know.

              But atleast now UN, EU, Russia, China and UK have recognised Palestine as a seperate country. Therefore sometime in future Palestine will get some kind of Independence and self governance.

              Lets see how things unfold and lets hope for best..

              Hi Jayantha,

              Yes, it is unfortunate that Israel treats the Palestinians in such a manner. But we cannot forget that 3 countries declared war on Israel. It is after these three countries lost the war that the present Israel was created. As you know, any country that loses a war will also lose some land. My personal belief is that Israel should not exist (as the vast majority of “Jews” in Israel are actually Ashkenazis from Eastern Europe) but I do not think the Arabs/Muslims have the brains to do the job. As you said elsewhere, the Jews are very organized. Before going after Israel, someone has to break the Zionist control of the global financial system, and that is not easy to do.

          Lester

          Please read up on the impact of the “one child policy” on Chinese. There are multifaceted challenges.

          First, is the artificial imbalance in population ratios of gender and the age spread. Chinese have a preference for the male child resulting in many females fetuses being aborted. This has created a different social problem; that of young men finding suitable partners.

          The other problem is the burden placed on the single child to look after ailing and aged parents, with single child being unable to cope with the pressures of time and money for the care of aging parents.

          Economically, the government is saddled with a rapidly aging population, with not enough of Chinese young going into the productive labour category.

          So no solution is a final solution. Sri Lanka is facing the same challenges and needs broader informed discussion.

          Not virulent bad mouthing, founded on hatred of one group of people can resolve the problem if we have one. Please note I am not commenting on the “Muslim population and birth rate” and the unfounded fears of the BBS/JHU and their ilk.

          My comment is restricted to the Chinese experience alone and the impact of the choices they made.

              It is a dishonour to have won nobel price!

              BTW, you said that incest is bad because of the possible danger to the health of the babies. In that case, incest with condom must be ok.

              But as per Islam. Incest is wrong. Period!

            Lester,

            I agree with Nabil when it comes to Family planning and family life.
            The reason is…..we humans live with different emotions, cultures, family back grounds, priorities, needs and aesthetic needs. Even in the same family among siblings, these needs will be different.

            Therefore one cannot say to another to follow a set of rules when it comes to family life. One will be happy with a big house, when the other will love to have a third or fourth child. So it’s different.

            But my point is that that parents should have a full knowledge of childrens physical,mental,emotional,love needs etc. and proper guidence of upbringing children until they leave home.

            Also these should be taught at school as a subject.Right now our lower middle class and the poor are nil on this, like our government.

            I think China has relaxed their strict one child policy now. But the second child is not eligible for some free incentives given to one child by Chinese state.

            Only thing in Sri Lanka is, first the boys and men…..(specially lower middle class and poor) should be taught how to respect Girls and women in society and should taught family and social life and empower girls and women both in school,at home and at work through media as well as in church/ mosque and temple.

              @ Jayantha:

              I suggest you also read Malthus’ essay on population growth. The basic problem in economics is scarcity (lack of resources). There are never enough resources to distribute to the entire population, so that each and every person is satisfied. It is not reasonable to expect the Government to provide social welfare to each and every person, either, since social welfare is funded by taxes, and taxes have to go to various projects. When it comes to family planning, people must be reasonable and correlate the number of offspring to their income level. Otherwise, it will lead to numerous sociological problems, such as increased poverty and crime. Having dozens of children for the sake of the sky god or moon god does not make economic sense. That is not rational behavior (even though the sky god and moon good might disagree).

              I agree with you. That’s why I said that these should be taught in school as a subject. Both economies, money and resource management, family and social life, general education VS employment based education, optimising and maximising limited natural resources, soil and environment management, energy efficency and management, research based and resource based education, information technology etc…etc…
              If Rajapakses had access to these type of education system, they would not have started those wasteful Hambanthota harbour or Mattala Airport type of projects…..

              @ Jayantha:

              Correct. A completely new kind of education is needed for the modern citizen. Awareness of basic economic principles, of the environment, familiarity with 1 or 2 programming languages by the end of secondary school, I would even recommend some instruction in comparative religions, so that children are exposed to other faiths. Now that exercise equipment is so pervasive, it is possible to give children some training in this area also, from an early age, so that they build good habits as they become older. We cannot ignore the question of sexuality either. Given that it’s presence is felt everywhere because of technology (specifically, the internet), the best thing to do is offer some kind of limited education in this regard. Explain the differences in male and human thinking, explain the psychology of deviant behavior, explain what is a normal human relationship, explain how pornography messes up the normal balance in relationships, etc.

              Another suggestion that I have is for universities to become involved with lower-level education. Instead of compulsory military training, all students should be compelled to offer tuition (subsidized by the State) for one term during their 4-year career.

              Finally, I am of the opinion that everyone should be allowed to attend any class in any university (with the exception of certain areas like medicine), given that there is adequate seating, but not necessarily sit for the exams.

              You are absolutely correct. Complete revamp of our education system to meet present day resource management and maximise labour, technology and labour is important. Yes I agree with sharing religious views and sharing and exchange of views.

              Also every child should be taught their right to live, constitution,their rights and responsibilities as a citizen. Also their right for free speach,religious and racial rights and gender and minority rights.

              Absolute decision making power base given to a single human or a family should be abolished.

              A bench of educated, qualified Professions should be appointed for each decision making process on every aspect of education, health, economic development, employment generation, service industry, agriculture and environmental resources, export import trade etc…etc… and this board should be a seperate entity from Parliament politics.

    It is sad that such incidents have taken place. Pure and simple this is a provocative act. God is one, but he is called in different names. The manner in which Allah is described in filth is unpardonable. Earlier the idols in the Hindu temples in Kandy were damaged by unruly elements. After the war it is alleged that more than 65 temples and recently some mosques were damaged, all of which send the signal that poor governance is prevailing in the country. When the Hindu temples were demolished or even trespassed inside the Sanctum Sanctorum by the Sri Lanka Armed Forces with their boots on various pretext, the Muslim politicians failed to condemned, but also maintained silence when statutes of Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda were also damaged. However, we Hindus wish to take this opportunity to condemn such remarks on religious Prophets in no uncertain terms. It is a clear infringement of the provisions of the constitution.
    I wish remind my Muslim brothers and sisters that there is a close link between Hinduism and Islam. The practice of worshipping pagan Moon was prevalent in Arabia since 2000 BC. In Mecca, there was a God known as Hubal, who was the Lord of the Kabah. It is said that the idol of Moon God was placed upon the roof of the Kabah about 400 years before Muhammad was born. This could have been the symbol of Islam atop of every mosque. Apparently, the Mood God was also referred to as ‘al-ilah’. This is generic reference meaning the God. It so happened that each local pagan Arab tribe would address their own local tribal pagan god as ‘al-ilah’. With the passage of time, the term ‘al-ilah’ shorten itself as Allah, before Muhammad began promoting his new religion in 610 AD. Muhammad retained almost all pagan rituals of the Arabs at the Kaba and redefined them in monotheistic terms. However, it is clear that Islam is derived from paganism that once worshipped a Moon-God.
    Muhammad’s career took place not in Mecca, but hundreds of kilometres to the North. Yehuda Nevo. The classical Arabic language was developed not in today’s Saudi Arabia, but in the Levant.
    Moreover, Kaaba in Mecca in Saudi Arabia was a pilgrimage site prior to the existence of Islam. The word ‘Kaaba’ whether it is of Sanskrit or Tamil origin, is of considerable debate. However, the origin of the word ‘Kaaba’ can be traced around 1700 BC. In this context there is a Siva temple in Tamil Nadu, known as Kabaaliswaran temple. Kabaali refers to Lord Shiva. It is said that the Black Stone at Kaaba is held sacred and holy in Islam and is called ‘Hajre Aswad’, a word derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Sanghey Ashweta’ meaning non-white stone. Apparently Shiva Lingam is also known as Sanghey Ashweta. So there is reason to ponder that Kaaba is the same what Hindus worship. Moreover, the pedestal Maqam-E-Ibrahim at the centre of Kaaba is octagonal in shape. Similarly in Hinduism, the pedestal of Brahma is also octagonal in shape. What is amusing is that Muslim pilgrims visiting the Kaaba temple go around it seven times. In no other mosque does the circumambulation prevail. Hindus invariably circumambulate around their deities, which is another proof that the Kaaba shrine is a pre-Islamic. Therefore, the fact that Muslims do not worship stone has become a considerable dispute, given the fact that Muslim pilgrims circumambulate the entire Kaaba building seven times.
    It is stunning to observe that Allah was one of the deities in Kabba, prior to the existence of Islam. Allah itself is of Sanskrit origin, because the words Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a Goddess or mother. The term ‘Allah’ forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking Goddess Durga, which also refers to Mahishasurmardini, Chandi and Bhavani. Therefore it appears that the Islamic word for God retention of the ancient Sanskrit appellation and continued thereafter by Islam. Hence Allah means Mother Goddess.
    Moreover, if one sees the Sanskrit syllabus AUM in a mirror, the Arabic number 786 which is a sacred number for the Muslims can be seen and are imprinted in the Arabic Quran. What a coincidence of the holiest Vedic symbol of AUM and the Arabic sacred number 786 that signals the unification of both religions. Briefly Muslims go around the Siva Lingam at Kabba seven times like Hindus go around five or seven times.
    Similarly Lord Buddha is also considered as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Any mischievous elements engaged in such unwanted activities should not forget the practice of non-violence preached by Lord Buddha. Non-violence has the force of nullifying provocative acts. On the contrary, it has the force of promoting mutual understanding.
    Therefore having heard the mischievous remarks, it also hurt our feelings, especially when Buddhist priests are maintaining silence, perhaps through fear of the Armed Security Forces. We may have differences, but this is the hour to raise in one voice to restore our religious freedom without any form of interference. After all, it is common that eventually we have to realize the ultimate truth, i.e. surrender to the Almighty in whatever form the devotees imagines.

      Citizen,

      Very interesting information. You have stimulated me to read more on this subject. Thanks. There is an essential unity amidst all the apparent diversity, because we have common origins.

      ALLAH: Allah is the proper name of the One True God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who does not have a partner or associate, and He did not beget nor was He begotten. The word Allah is used by the Arab Christians and Jews for The God (Eloh-im in Hebrew; ‘Allaha’ in Aramaic, the mother tongue of Jesus, pbuh). The word Allah does not have a plural or gender

      Dear Citizen,

      Muhammad retained almost all pagan rituals of the Arabs at the Kaba and redefined them in monotheistic terms. However, it is clear that Islam is derived from paganism that once worshipped a Moon-God.

      What you are implying is that there is nothing original about Islam, a point which I have made on this forum before. The pre-Islamic inhabitants of the Arabian Desert were Hindus; Muhammed and his followers kicked them out. So, it is quite ironic; that a non-Muslim cannot go near the Kaba, when in fact the the origin of the Kaba dates back to Hindu customs.

        Islam is the second youngest religion, next to Sikhism. The existence of a religion is judged by the usage of words. There is only one God, Every religious community calls God by different names. The oldest language is Sanskrit. The words Himalayas, Saraswathi, Indonesia, Malaya, Singapore, the names of places in Malaysia, etc are all of Sanskrit origin and were in use for the last 12,500 years. Similarly the word Arab is of Greek origin. Even in Iran, with invasion of Islam the followers of Zoroastrinism were massacred in lakhs and a few thousands escaped to India and West Europe. It is sad to note that Islam crept in Iran, Afganishtan with violence. Helenism in Greece was a religion with rich principles similar to Hinduism. Greek and Hebrew along with Latin were ancient languages. Even in Egypt, there was invasion of Islam the result of which saw the Christians been attacked by the Muslims. In between there were natural disasters which resulted in the destruction of some civilizations. However, the fact remains that there were links between religions and fighting over religion is absurd. We are living in the 21st century and that we should respect each other. The pre-Islamic of the Arabian desert were either Hindus or Greeks. The word Arabian is a Greek word. Moreover the Greek had trade links with India. Mention should be made that a vast mass of land had submerged in sea and that is why the Somalian coast are shallow and the Arabian sea is not that deeper as Indian Ocean. Further some coastal areas along Pakistan and Iran were subject to earthquakes.

          Sanskrit is never a spoken language. That’s why it died soon like Apabrahmsa and Prakrit and the modern concocted one Esperanto. Still nobody can write a convincingly rhyming poem using it’s own dictionary, so it’s survival trend in literary works demised.

          Sanskrit was assembled by collecting loan words and standardizing them from Maitli, which is still widely spoken among the anothern hemisphere of India.

          Although it metamorphic from the same lineage of the above family to the same Pali had a vocabulary to survive with extensive works on religious texts to it’s credit.

            Dear Kevetta, today Sanskrit is made an official language in the State of Jakarkhand in India. Furthermore, Kashmir has been the home of Sanskrit learning long before the invasion of Muslims. The great epics Ramayana and Maha Bharath were composed in Sanskrit. During the period of the Indus Valley civilization Sanskrit was the Official language.

    Every one knows who is behind this idiotic BODU BALA SENA! Gottapaya is behind it, that means the government is behind it. So, the government is trying to bring communal violence against Muslims. So, the Judgement is around the corner and we will be able to see those HEROES BECOME ZERO!
