Elpitiya ‘Liberated’ By BBS: No More Muslim Shops!

Shops operated by Muslims in Elpitiya to vacate the premises soon, the Colombo Telegraph learns.

All 13 shops of the Muslims in Elpitiya are legally owned by Sinhalese but have been given on annual rent. The legal agreements are renewed every year. According to the Colombo Telegraph sources the Bodu Bala Sena has approached the legal owners of the Muslim establishments in Elpitiya and directed them not to extend their leases. All Sinhala owners of the shops have informed the Muslim businessmen to return the vacant shops, after the conclusion of the annual rent. Elpitiya will then be “liberated” according to Bodu Bala Sena.

Bodu Bala Sena conducted a meeting on 29th March in Elpitiya. BBS ordered all Shops and Restaurants to close from 11.00 a.m. and shop owners were asked to attend their procession white cloth and join their public meeting in the town. There are 13 shops operated by Muslims and they remained closed throughout the day, in expectation of violence.

    The anti Buddhist terrorists show their dark, ignorant, bigoted sides again. Cutting their noses to spite their faces, they are intellectually unable to comprehend that the despicable hate and violence they show only hurts the country and will take us back again to violence and strife. Obviously no deep thinkers, they believe in unsubstantiated rumours of charmed toffees, mass conversions, the majority becoming the minority, that only elements with the evil intent to poison these feeble minds set out to do.

    It is a shame that our country, only beginning to get out of a bloody war, cannot find any peace and the freedom to progress. It is unfortunate that the government has been complicit in racist violence, and allows evil to roam our streets and attack defenseless minorities, bring shame to a religion of peace and tolerance.

      The attack on minorities – Tamils, Muslims, Christians continues unabated. The Balu Sena whose patron is Gota the white van goon is the beneficiary and fulcrum of the Rajapakse policy of DIVIDE and RULE.
      But the Muslim politicians and the UNP and other opposition parties should be ashamed for keeping silent in the face of the attack on Muslims and Tamils and the virulent hate speech and acts of the Balu Sena and in the form of the military intelligence attack on the TNA meeting in Kilinochchi.
      Rajapakse is following the British Colonial policy of Divide, Distract with attacks on minorities and Lanka’s multicultural social fabric in order to perpetuate the family military dictatorship. This is why Mahinda Rajapassa is running behind the Commonwealth of Nations, aka. the Commonwealth of Clowns that is headed by the Queen of England and desperate to have CHOGM in Hambantota which indeed is a massive WASTELAND and ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER – with giant EMPTY roads and highways going NOWHERE!
      Once the violence happens the regime blames it on the minorities and the international community who are its scapegoats. The Regiem’s fantastic conspiracy theories are LIES. The latest lie was that the Norwegians are funding Gotabaya Rajapassa’ Balu Sena!
      I hear that the Sycophant Vasudeva Nanayakkara has just woken up and in going to pass a bill to arrest the Balu Sena which should have been arrested long ago since it has been breaking the Law for months with patronage from the Rajapassa Brothers whose end game is DIVIDE, DISTRACT and RULE – now that everyone sees through their corrupt and senseless “military business” development model.
      All the minorities must get together with progressive SInhala forces to ensure that REGIME CHANGE happens and to avoid another war in Lanka.

        I agree with the premise that the Rajapaksa’s obviously are in league with Sri Lanka’s brand of Buddhist extremism and racism, now running rampant in a town near you.

        It is also possible that they are advised and aided by some experts who practice racism, bigotry and inciting violence against Muslims, from an alien source. They come here as “consultants”, and some of our youth have been sent over there on false pretenses, to get “trained” in such filthy practices.
        This is a larger scale, more organized, crime spree against Muslims.
        We suddenly see hate websites, outright lies, and the lame attempt to control the message.

        All hallmarks of this notorious nation, that has had world condemnation against it, and is one of the most disliked nations in the world. If this is correct, it means the Rajapaksa’s have made a pact with the devil. It will be a disaster for our country.

          The new hath come and now the old retires:
          And so the past becomes a mountain-cell,
          Where lone, apart, old hermit-memories dwell
          In consecrated calm, forgotten yet
          Of the keen heart that hastens to forget
          Old longings in fulfilling new desires.

      Buddhism has been destroyed by a Safron clad mob in Lanka and it is shocking the leaders of the religion from the various Nikayas are keeping silent about how the Buddhist doctrine and practice has been distorted and militarized by the Rajapakse military dictatorship and its Balu Sena.
      The history of Buddhism in Lanka is being defamed and destroyed by the actions of the Balu Sena as the Buddhist world looks on in horror at what is being done in the name of Buddhism in Sri Lanka and also Myanmar where violence against others is now a way of life.

      But this pseudo monk for sure is not the voice or representative for the islands buddhist folks. I am a born buddhist as almost all buddhists have been – but me been living on the west for the last few decades, as one regularly trying to keep informed about all kind of developments in the native country – do feel that many that support to BBS cant be buddhists.

      Not once, several dozens of times, the particular monk on the picture has behaved disrespecting great philosophy buddhism. I wonder why the authorities and all other highly respected buddhist leaders seem to be pay almost no interest in solving this kind of problems that one can easily avoid, if we could take legal action against them.

      On the other hand, in a country governed by thugs, this kind of attacks against minority folks can not be avoidable.

        If I had any authority to react for the SAKE nation, I would have

        a) put this kind of monks in jail for the sake of all other folks – surely that is what many expect in the country today – Alone punishing them would not help – but have to get them rehab through programs that have been practised in developed world today.

        b)sent Mervin, Weerawansae and alike uncivilised ministers (Kehelmal, SB, Rajitha , Kumara, Jehan Perera and the similar ministers )go home:

        c)worked with MINISTER OF JUSTICE to have amended all prevailing laws to be able to apply usefully to control any kind of crimes in the country that is seen to be an alarming problem of current day lanka

        d)appointed Prof. R Wijesinghe as the minister of high education for the country and any other good professor for the minister of education

        e)gotten passed new laws in the parliament not to allow any perpetrators to continue their all forms of violences

        f)have given the highest priority to Education and Rule of Law; amended prevailing laws accordingly. Today, their excuses have been, we dont have any such provision in the prevailing laws ? have left room to repeat the latter excuse again

        g)have sent all unncessary ministers go home – while all ministers´s or any high profile officers taks would have been studied closely to a manner they could become exemplary to the others in the staffs.

      This was the methodology adopted by Gotabaya who told the police to close the eyes and ears , while giving protection to the BBS paramilitary group to unleash violence on the Pepiliyana establishment. After all was done according to his diabolic plans fully well , he sent the official army to give a respite to the paramilitary violent group after they have launched the attack as they wished.

      While huge losses had been caused and injured persons are helplessly waiting , and there is a potential for racial unrest , the investigations into this wanton attack is being conducted most uncaringly .The police say , Galgoda Gnaana ssara Thero who led this violence should be arrested but Gotabaya and DIG Anura Senanayake are standing in the way . They also say they are not being permitted even to interrogate any Sangha goon.

      What had provoked the Rajapakse regime against the Muslims is their desire to transfer the businesses in the hands of the Muslims to their Sinhala business henchmen . During the New year season , two leading Muslim clothing sales centers , namely, No Limit and Fashion Bug draw the largest crowds . But it is the need of Gotabaya to somehow create turmoil and turbulence to their sales and divert the business to his pal , Preethi Jayawardena , a popular clothes trader , and boost his business. It is to be noted that all imports of clothing by Preethi Jayawardena are not subject to inspection at the Customs because of the Rajapakse patronage he enjoys. He spent lavishly for Mahinda Rajapakse at the Presidential elections. Recently ,when Jayawardena moved into a new home , the chief guest at the house warming ceremony was , Gotabaya Rajapakse.

      The paramilitary group in the name of BBS that had been originated by Gotabaya is used to serve the needs of such businessmen.

      Another close bosom pal of the Rajapakses is readying to commence the import of canned beef from Australia. It is the BBS paramilitary group that has been selected to do the marketing of those products. A true Buddhist will oppose the consumption of beef. But the BBS paramilitary group opposes the killing of cattle and closes down the slaughter houses by conducting raids. Already they have closed a number of such slaughter houses . This is another racket, for those closures have created an environment for the Rajapakses to import canned beef and sell them.

      I have seen many Sinhalese and Tamil politicians/parliamentarians speak on behalf of these innocent Muslims and the prevailing problem.

      Let me ask, where are all the Muslim Ministers and MPs gone? Why are they not protesting? Why are they keeping quite? They should have resigned or left the government by now but why are they still silently clinging on?

      Are the Muslims going to vote for these people again?

      When the moderate Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims, and Burghers are worried about this problem why the Muslim MPs are not?

      Hi Mr. Smith me being a Sri lankan Muslim would like to tell you that please do not blame the Sinhalese race as a whole for the problems created, there are plenty of Sinhalese Buddhists questioning and voicing their opinions against these extremists known as BBS. These attacks are fueled by stupid uneducated scums supported by the authorities higher up. There are plenty of Sinhalese people out there who are well mannered, cultured and educated who we have good relationships with. Just because a bunch of idiots are spreading hatred and racism around doesn’t mean the whole race is to blame. On a lighter note, encourage your overseas Muslim friends to visit lanka because we might have problems within us but we have always been great hosts and tourists are always welcomed in this country.

        It is not that we sinhalese condone these atrocities but surprised as to how Rajapakse double head snake and double tongue cold reactions to these while his whole cabinet is sleeping on this matter.

        We all know that this is a bunch of Yellow robe Drug and Kasippu addict and wanted criminals who do these things. So why police don’t arrest them. This is what we are asking. Who is governing our country.

        With the 1983 experience we had, I tell my Muslim Brothers be Vigilant and take full insurance for your business property and take all the Photos and Videos of these crooks, so when we come into power we will give them more Parippu than what VP got in Nanthikandal.

        Have little Patience and go about doing your business and please don’t give up your business.

        Very soon there will be a Kasippu drop to Colombo, similar to Parippu air drop.

        So have little more patience and don’t give into their drama. These are mere Barking dogs. Nothing else.

      There will be travel warning to Sri Lanka by other nations, the Arab tourists who flock here, will stop coming, and go to more Muslim friendly nations, tourism will drop, and by what happened in Geneva, so will the aid.

Unfortunately your friends are forbidden from visiting Mecca; infidels are not allowed to defile the most sacred of places (that honour belongs to the House of Saud).

Ignorance leads to hatred, it is obvious to many here that islamaphobes have corrupted our country and slithered into our blogs, desperately trying to spew false propaganda and hatred for Muslims. It is a waste of time responding to inane comments and mindless garbage attacking the Muslims. The more you feel these hasbara trolls the more dumber their comments.

            It is time for people of all faiths to distance themselves from extremists and those with dubious agendas. Robed people of any faith, including of Buddhism, are not practitioners of their faiths, but people with deep insecurities, hidden agendas and so forth. Please, in the name of peace, do not engage them in useless debate, do not respond to their attempts to create hatred and division, and guard yourselves against their actions.

            Read this account from the web: ” (In Burma, Buddhist Rakhine threw young Rohingya children into the flames of their own homes before the eyes of family members. On June 3, 10 out-of-province Muslim pilgrims were pulled off a bus in the Rakhine town of Taunggoke, about 200 miles west of the former capital, Rangoon, and beaten to death by a mob of more than 100 Buddhist men. The crime occurred in broad daylight and in full view of both the public and local law enforcement officials.) – this goes on in Burma in the name of Buddhism, so do we want this in Sri Lanka ????. How far from the doctrine of the Buddha is this??? Given that 100s of people soon joined the small group of troublemakers in Pepiliyana, such a scenario in Sri Lanka is not impossible. Say no to hatred, and distance yourselves from troublemakers.

              The Siam connection

              On the initiative of Ven. Weliwita Saranankara (1698–1778) the Thai monk Upali visited Kandy in 1753 during the reign of king Kirti Sri Rajasinghe, and there performed upasampada for a group of Kandyan monks. The Buddhist order had become extinct thrice during the preceding five hundred years and was re-established in the reigns of Vimala Dharma Suriya I and Vimala Dharma Suriya II as well. These re-establishments were short lived.

              Although hagiographies written within Sri Lanka avoid the issue, the foundation of the Siam Nikaya was closely linked to both the aristocratic and caste politics of its era, including an attempted coup d’etat that is unusually well-documented, due to the interaction of the colonial Dutch and the king of Kandy at the time:

              The plot of 1760, occurred during the reign of Kirti Sri Rajasinha and shortly after the formal beginnings of the Siyam Nikaya in 1753. One group within the local aristocracy conspired to overthrow the king and to place a Siamese prince on the throne. The leaders are said to have included not only key lay administrators but also some of the leading Siyam Nikaya monks. Valivita Saranankara, founder of the Siyam Nikaya, and his chief student were named among the conspirators. The plot was discovered, the Siamese prince deported with a reluctant assistance of the Dutch, and the lay administrators executed.” [Anne M. Blackburn, 2001, Buddhist learning and textual practice in eighteenth-century Lankan monastic culture, p. 34]
              ———————————————–

              The oldest Buddhist sect in Sri Lanka, the Siam Nikaya (estd. 19 July 1753) are the custodians of the Tooth Relic, since its establishment during the Kandyan Kingdom. The Siyam Nikaya traditionally grants Higher ordination only to the Radala and Govigama castes. The

              Siyam Nikaya has been an exclusive Radala Govigama sect from the time of the Kings of Sri Lanka, giving lie to the myth of a Karava supremacy predating the arrival of Colonials, unfortunately the Siyam nikaya is promoting & practicing one of the 5 unpardonable sins in
              Buddhism,which falls into the category of Anantharvedaniya karma namely:

              1. Killing one’s Mother
              2. Killing one’s Father
              3. Causing a Buddha’s blood to be shed
              4. Killing Arahaths
              5. Creating divisions among the Sangha

              The caste based discrimination made many Karava, Salagama, Durava, Bathgama & other castes people considered as low by the Govi to become Catholics & Anglicans.

              The Siyam Nikaya as custodians of the Tooth Relic have always received the full support and patronage of the Govigama dominated Sri Lankan State and its Ministers and Ministries of Buddha Sasana, Cultural Affairs and others,the monopolisation of the lord Buddha’s tooth relic by the Radala Govigama combination on caste based lines have brought shame & a bad reputation to Buddhism in Sri Lanka, which resembles the white apartheid rule in South Africa.

        Desert dwelling Bedouins have built the Tallest building (829 Meters high), the biggest airport (140 sq km), the largest shopping mall (12 Million sq ft), the richest horse race (AED 100 Million in prizes), in the world.

        Their major source of income is not oil but industry and a hub for Halaal trade. It’s well worth studying the method of their governance. They are not perfect but the zest for life and fair play is touching. The comparison with Lanka over the last 65 years will speak volumes. Social harmony precedes economic prosperity. A city boasts as the cultural melting pot of 197 nationalities.

          They didn’t build those things by themselves. They hired foreigners (outsiders = non-Muslims). The desert-dwelling Bedouins do not even have the technology to extract oil by themselves; that is why they hire foreigners. Everything they hired outsiders to build was financed with oil money. If Sri Lanka had unlimited income from oil money, you would see palaces, shopping malls, highways, etc. come up overnight.

            Here is a pathetic example of Judaism in the land of occupiers in the 21st century:

            “Ultra-Orthodox extremists want to impose a number of restrictions, which include not allowing women to be interviewed on radio stations, not accepting pictures of women in newspapers or billboards, and demanding women sit at the back of the bus.

            Some also want women to walk separately on the opposite side of the road.

            Last week, a young Israeli woman caused a nationwide uproar when she refused a religious man’s order to move to the back of a bus.

            The protests were also spurred on, in part, by another incident last week, in which some ultra-Orthodox men in the town of Beit Shemesh harassed an eight-year old girl on her way to her religious Jewish girls school — spitting on her, calling her a “wh*re” and claiming she was dressed immodestly.”

              It is obvious that Wullgob cannot take facts and the truth. The ugly language, hate, and name calling only reflects on the fact that he is unable to respond to comments with credible facts, hence he resorts to being abusive, just like the nation he continuously brings into the debate here.
              There are violent illegal settlers in Israel, who has attacked mosques, firebombed Arabs, and even lynched Arabs in the neighboring lands, and they have been condemned by the UN for such violence (all can be fact checked on google), and this person truly represents that same anger and out of control personality, that is eerily similar to these settlers. Wherever he hails from, obviously he has not learned that vile comments only reflect on the writer. He is constantly on a rant, trying to convince everyone here that a terrorist state like Israel is a shining beacon of light. What else can you expect when someone has nothing substantial to say?

            @Lester
            You don;t live in Saudi Arabia, do you???? You do not live a life of a muslim, do you???? So, why don’t you let whoever follow Islam to practice what they want and mind your own business.
            Of course, People go from other countries and commit crimes in Saudi Arabia are punished. They know that if they commit crimes, they will be punished and they still do it, and then they blame the law and order.
            If muslim women sear hijab, does it have any affect on your life. Why? do you want them to reveal their body to you?
            Just be reasonable man. Let people follow their own religions and mind what your religion has taught u.
            Muslims do not go around telling others to do things their way, right? They do what they want for themselves.

              He/She does not know to be reasonable. In his stolen land the burn mosques, firebomb cars belonging to Arabs, and even lynch Arabs, and many other horrible crimes against people who already suffer from the occupation, and yet here it is spewing misinformation and attacking one religion.
              When confronted about the violence in other religions, he did not like that.
              He dishes out but just cannot take it.

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

            Samsara is not in one country or another — it pervades all of samsaric space. The nature of samsara is suffering and so there is no perfect place. Happiness and sorrow live side by side in any situation – be it a family, a community or a nation, or a species of creature. We human beings inherit this dualistic nature, but unlike other creatures, we have choices, and because of this, we can fashion our outcomes. This is why Buddhism believes human life is precious, rare and an opportunity to take not only oneself but others to a better place. So, focussing on this cluster of suffering here or there is really futile, because for one, our own interpretations are limited by our own blinkered stance – which is part of the meaning of the emptiness of inherent existence. Buddhism teaches how to navigate this minefield of samsara so that we can get to a better space, but we, through our ignorance and stupidity, mire ourselves further in it, clutching to our petty little views. The world is just a playing field with people of different nationalities with different karmic conditions, and different pockets of suffering that they will experience according to their own karmic destiny. A Buddhist knows this, and a Buddhist mind is something one inherits through cultivation of the dharma within the mind over lifetimes – it is not something that comes to you from birth into a particular nationality, because I have plenty of ‘Buddhist’ friends who want nothing to do with their faith or who just practice the rituals without the actual necessary realisations. Being born in a Buddhist environment merely means one get a first-hand introduction to the teachings of the Buddha, but whether one makes use of those teachings will depend on the karma of the individual and the effort they are willing to put into their practice. Lester, why do you keep on harping about the Muslims. If it is on behalf of Buddhism, best for you put your own mind in order first. If it is on behalf of Sri Lanka and the preservation of the Sinhala race, you still need to learn the dhamma, because it will teach you the true nature of your people and all other people, and once you really realise this, you will stop hanging so desperately onto your views.

            Lester – Of course they are hired; most are non-Muslim foreigners and the technology is from overseas. Economic development is finding the right people and giving them the opportunity to create master pieces. 80% of the population in this fair city is imported. The disposable income of these people feed their loved ones in their country. Lanka has more valuable resources than oil, however they are blind to recognise and harness it. People like you will take Lanka back to the stone age while the rest will watch you all worshiping it.

            Worry about the pathetic status of the Lankan women abroad, rather than the others. A nation who do not respect and honour their women will end up producing undesirable off-springs.

              Thanks, now we know how Muslim men really feel about Sinhalese and other women. But as I have said before, a woman has no place in Islam whatsoever. Not just Lankan women, but every kind of woman is abused in the Middle East. The House of Saud keeps thousands of foreign women in its concubines, which is nothing more than a legalized form of prostitution. Meanwhile, only a few hours away from the gated palaces of the House of Saud, non-Muslims are prevented from visiting Mecca. This is Islamic “intelligence” at its best: a Muslim man can fornicate with any woman, but a a moon rock (Kaba) is off limits to outsiders.

            No beheading, but plenty of lynchings, firebombing of Arab cars killing an entire family, and burning of mosques and churches:

            The Zion Square assault, also described by Israeli police,[1] Israeli and foreign media as a ‘lynch’ or ‘attempted lynch(ing)’,[2][3][4][5][6][7] was an attack by Israeli youths against four Palestinian teenagers that took place on the night of 16–17 August 2012 at Zion Square in Jerusalem. The four were chased by 10-15 teenagers and a 17-year-old Palestinian boy Jamal Julani was beaten unconscious and subsequently found in critical condition.[8][9][10][11]

            Terrorists in the illegal settlements:

            Firebombing injures six Palestinians in Gush EtzionNetanyahu issues condemnation; police reportedly believe incident was ‘Jewish terror attack’

            Lester, you can send your sister or your wife with a man or many or alone even to Bangkok, better Pattaya , where she can find a one. But Islam does not allow it. If a girl is going out with a man, he must be his brother or husband. They like it and that is why they are Muslims. You have no right to impose your culture on them.

            You wants Macca to be open for dirts like you. It will also never happen. I advice you to go to Thailand , Cambodia or any other country which is always open for you. You can eat Dog meat, Crow meat, Snake meet, Frog meet, worm, human waste etc,etc,etc, which are the most suitable dishes for people like you.. You can also have free sex without any obligations.

            Islam has a dress code which Muslims are following willingly for almos 1400 years. They are not forcing it on any one and they do not wants others to follow it as we’ll. You can’t change their dress code and they will never change it also. Anyway, you can dress your wife, daughters and sisters the way you wants. With bicknies or in half nude or without dress even. No body is objecting it. Some may like to enjoy their sexy body. Westerners are roaming in all over the world in half nude. No one, specially Muslims, are not objecting it.

            You are worried about the Oil money the middle eastern countries have. It was the gift given to them by God. You are trying to boost that we people are highly educated and they are all mad human beings. You know not a single university of ours is ranked within 10,000 in the world.? You are a frog in the well. You give your girls and women to those countries just for foreign currency,. This is almost prostitution.!Your Head of the State go to those countries begging money to feed us. You say you are highly educated and they are illiterate. We borrow money and built Harbours, where there is no Ships, built Airports, where there is no flight, Cricket Stadium, where there is fish! At this rate we tried to host the Asian Games here. shame, shame, puppy shame.

              Dodu,

              All hogwash. The average Sri Lankan – Tamil or Sinhalese – is far more intelligent than the average Arab. I have worked at various universities in North America and observed the Sri Lankan (Tamil and Sinhalese) students; they have a 100% success rate. The vast majority take up difficult subjects like mathematics, chemistry, and physics. Also, Sri Lankans (Sinhalese and Tamils) are well-represented at every major university in the world, from MIT to Oxford. The problem is that these Sri Lankans don’t go back to Sri Lanka, because of the lack of earning potential. If they did go back, and used their talents, Sri Lanka would easily overtake Singapore in 10 years.

              Now, look at Saudi Arabia. All of its wealth is due to oil. It has a GDP comparable to that of the USA, but what is the standard of living? Despite having so much money, women are still forced to wear bedsheets when walking outside in the hot sun. The “religious police” walk around looking for people who break laws dating from 750 AD. Public beheadings in “Chop chop Square” are quite common. Of course, all of this is for show. Everyone knows the House of Saud drinks alcohol and keeps concubines of foreign women. These are the guardians of the sham religion that you subscribe to?

              Do you think Islam really protects women? Hahaha, what a joke. [Edited out]

              So, at the end of the day, the Muslim view of women is not different from the Western one. The only difference is that the Westerners are more open about it. The Westerners understand that a certain amount of interaction between a man and a woman is healthy for normal personality development. They understand that a woman needs certain rights and freedom. Unfortunately, Islam is dominated by men with insecurities – starting with Muhammed. So they put on this farce, pretending to be religious, acting as if women get a good deal under Islam.

      To use the broad brush on all Sinhalese would be unfair – it has always been the few who tarnished the image of the entire community; oftentimes, with generous help from ruling political parties, using state machinery to galvanize hooligans eg the ’83 violence.

      We are beginning to see a repeat of this mayhem, this time pointed at religious minorities.

      If Sinhalese are to be blamed, it is largely for their failure to speak out against the lawlessness of government sponsored rabid mobs, this time around, purportedly Buddhist clergy. Silence empowers the offenders, and must be broken inn the interests of the nation and it’s largely peace loving people.

        Lester! You are a tipical Sri Lankan. When we built a bridge or a cricket stadium we (our grand parents and politicians) said, that this is the largest bridge or stadium in the world, we believed it. WNen they said , we are the highly educated, super brainy, cluttered society, we believed it. When they said our religion is super natural and above all and other religions are after this we believed it. It was in our minds and heart from the very beginning, from our childhood days! Even when we grow up, we can’t change this mentality. What to do we are a frog in the well. We looks at others in the way we were thought .

        Do you know that students who were failed in IIT, JEE are getting admissions in MIT?. What % of Sri Lankans are ther in MIT? Do you think that all those who went abroad and studying there are gone on merit? Over 80% is there because of their wealth. If you say we are so brilliant, why do you think that none of our universities are not within 10,000? At this rate you are dreaming to bring down those brains an defeat Singapore in 10 years! This is another story told by our grant parents and the great politicians – we will be a Singapore in One Day! Do you know NUS is ranked within top 10 universities in the world? So, where are we? Remember, 75% of the Sri Lankans, who are shining in abroad are Tamils, who were chased away by Sinhalese. So ,here is nothing for you to be proud of it. You should feel shame about it!.

        Let me come to Islam! You are still on your grant parents pants. First you learn about Isllam. Do not listen to stories of you grant parents. Use your brain. Islam has given enough freedom to women. true it has not given freedom to roam in half all over the world. it has a dress code which muslims like it and they wear it. they do not force on others. If you wish, as I said earlier, you can take your girls whatever way you like. muslims are not objecting it! Your grant parents would have told very bad about Saudi Arabia! Naturally, they are gel outs of that country because, it is the birth place of Islam! Not only in Islam all world is dominated by man! It is Islam which gave real freedom to Women. Why are you talking only about Saudi Arabia? Talk about turkey and all other muslim countries. Before you talk about Saudi, you must stop exporting women and girls as migrant workers to middle eastern countries, Singapore, hong Kong, Sypress…… it is shame there the married women are roming with boys and girls are with old man. No muslim drinks alchahol. If he does it he is not a real muslim. It is muslim who thought mathematics, medicine and geography to the modern world. You may not know about it. Because, your grant parents know nothing about Islam!

        You are worried about the money muslim countries have. You said you went to North America! For what? Money! Shame, You are sending your girls and women there. For what money! 30 years ago those countries were deserts. Now those countries are business centers of the world. Go to Dubai, Qatar…. and see. You are dreaming of becoming a Singapore they are already double the Singapore.

Some of Your Monks are bringing women to the temple secretly to sleep. Some have keeps. They abuse children. They eat beef. They drink alchahol. Your girls are going to middle eastern and western countries as migrant workers and roam with Pakistani, Bangladesh, Arab, chinese and western men. Shame! Here, in the sea side, you can see little white boys and girls who are born illegally to white men! Some women are hotel owners keeping the white man and the black man in the same house. You do not have to go to google to search all these. These are the facts. A man is setting fire to his own little child and wife to ran away with his illegal wife. Father/ grand father abusing their own children. Girls including tourists are raped by your own ruling part politicians. Maximum number of rapes are reported from Polannaruwa! Almost five a month! You killed minority Tamils, who are the original owners of this land, you roped them. You put their little ones into burning TAR barrels! Everything is exposed now. Can’t hide. UNHRC is behind you. UN will support Elam. Surely, Tmils will get Elam before Palastine. US is with them.

          Your party Politicians are swendlling the country. People are suffering! they are still borrowing. They wants to host the Asian games, may be next time they might try for Olimpics! You are spreading communalism. If you wants to see half nude women go to beach sides. You are killing your culture for money. You will even kill your loved ones for money.

      Real buddhists that are the significant majority that respect the philosphy but have been mum for the time being will surely back you in this regard.

      Majority of buddhists respect other folks, their religions, their walks of life regardless of being what caste or social background they belong to. please react every good buddhist at this critical juncture to protect our image that the westerners are well aware of for the decades.

      I myself am informed many on the west, regular tourists regard srilankens in general are very hospitable and friendly. Once upon a time srilanka was their first choice for the holidays, unfortunatley, the civil war damaged all these. 3.5 decades ago, srilanka was the paradise for Germans that are the world chamipions to travel to anyone today.

    MR, Gota and family have let out the genie. You reap what you sow. Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind. Why cannot MR foot his foot down and say enough is enough? Because it is his thinking too. We can fault CBK for many faults, but she never allowed these type of things. When Soma Hamuduruwo dies and there was a threat to Christain churches, she came on TV and warned against any attacks. She said the DIG of the area will be personally responsible if any thing happens. IGP was asked to send instructions accordingly. Not a single incident occured. We need to understand why MR is not doing similarly. Not that he cannot. He will not. This is his ideology too. He is also BBS. First the Tamils, now the Muslims and Christians. Sinhala Christians who voted for him now realise. But where is Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith?

      That is the difference between Madam Chandrika and Hambanthota Kangetta.

      You can’t correct a born Alibaba. That’s in their blood and that’s why most of the other clergy like Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith are silent now.

      it was they with other Christian and Buddhist clergy who had a special four hour discussion and persuaded Medamulana thakkadiya not to Impeach Dr. Shirani Bandaranayke. But the ever notorious crook did not give a damn to their Pleading and that’s how this crazy bas…d work..

      This is how this Balu Haraka rule our country. Giving bribes to Buddhist Preletes to get their and their area supporters vote for “Nil Rella” is the Medamulana’s newest norm while getting advise from them as to how to run the country.

      As civilians what we have to do is to gather much information on this Mee Haraka and the Kasippu Yellow Robes and pass those information to both Local and Inernational Community who ever who needs them.

      It is much better if we all could get together and make a plan to kick this Hora Balla along with his Pakkali Kaha Balallu out before they further ruin our country.

      But the Kasippu Air Drop will occur pretty soon.

      THEREFORE AWAIT FOR SUDDEN MANNA SURPRISES.

      Actually, where is Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith in all of this? last year a friend and i wanted to take pictures of various churches and went to an Anglican church (i will not put the name of the church for obvious reasons) The Anglican priest openly spoke out to the congregation and condemned the corruption and nepotism taking place in this country. I cannot say the same for catholic churches (at least the one I go to). If christians are being attacked, Christian clergy should speak out against it, irrespective of the denomination.

        If only anybody could answer in our whole post Independence, if any President or Prime Minister visits the Buddhist Temples as much as President Rajapakse does is questionable.

        Why he do this. Is he guilty of his crimes and conscious and looking for pardon, or trying to get more attention and help from both Buddhist Preletes and from Buddhist voters…..are questions to answer.

        I, very well know that most of the decision making are done with the knowledge of Buddhist Preletes. But are they just and fair decisions, taking all the citizen into consideration. I wonder.

        It is now over an year that the newly installed Blessed Virgin statue at avissawella was vandalised, but upto now nobody was arrested or caught. It is known that it was Avissawella Police was involved in this destruction. So how to catch the robber.

        Not because of that, all her alike people respect diginity of the life unlike the case with Rajapakshes.

        Rajapakshes are merciless uneducated rascals, even keep quiet deliberately not reacting properly in a situation like that of current day- also one can see it the manner they paid the blind eye at the time Mervin the most known fithy mouth of the regime condemed former President lately, and how the regime reacted at the time, Dr Banadaranayake was attacked in the impeachment process calling her – thothbaba – me gani and etc and lanken sorta of filthy langauge was used to attacked her there, but blind backboneless president did not utter a word, but because as many feel it today all these happen with his approval. He is the root cause for all these problem that general public of this country are facing today.

      For what he has unleashed can lead to deadly consequences for Sri Lankans especially the minorities.
      Obviously he goes around without fear spewing hatred and inciting violence, which means he has got the blessings of those who are meant to protect ALL citizens.

    Since the govt is not doing anything to stop this type of discrimination, muslims will now have to buckle down and devise a suitable strategy to overcome the economic challenges facing the community. Also on the political front a realignment of forces along with other minority parties may be considered.

    Study the situation carefully as it evolves. The sudden increase in this type of activity indicates that we have a big explosion of violence coming. Better be prepared than sorry.

    This is called ethnic clensing similar to Genoside in Kosovo.
    If you look at the Muslim Population in Sri Lanka, it is the Muslims who are the least burden to our economy. They came here for Trade and still many of them remain as traders and businessmen while paying taxes to the Govt. to run our country.

    My Brother in Law, after 30 years as a distributor for a leading company had to terminate his business due to heavy additional taxes been imposed by GOSL. Therefore it is very hard for a local to do business in Sri Lanka today other than Govt.giving more concessions to foreign Investors than to local population to attract foreign investments.

    Sinhalese were never born Traders, but were mere service providers and administrators to the kings, while many were farmers.

    Taking over a known trade run by Muslim Traders and giving them to un trained, unqualified, inexprienced people will further ruin Sri Lanka’s Business and Trade and will finally ruin the whole industry.

    As I highlighted before now all of you will agree as to who really run our country and who really control our Government, economy, society and foreign relations.

    Muslims (Sonakar) should learn from their experience. All these days they were lead by opportunists and collaborated with Sinhala racist politicians who were anti-tamil. These racist elements gave substantial benefits that has to be ideally go to Tamils. Muslims didn’t want to be part of Tamils and worked as informants to Sri Lankan (Sinhala) military. They denied that their mother Tounge is Tamil. Whenever there is a peace talk between Tamils and Sinhalese they interrupt calling they should be considered as part of negotiations but they never raised the issues faced by the muslims with the Government while they are part of the Government sharing large number of ministerial post. This behaviour divided Tamils and Muslims apart and both communities have lost their trust against each other. The whole world knows what happened to Tamils during the last six years: It is a complete destruction and none of the Tamil civilian will ask for anything. Just eat, drink and sleep with what we give to you.

    Muslims thought that they will continue to get same benefits as before LTTE defeat but now it is their turn to get the same treatment as happened to Tamils over the six decades. You must understand none of the Sinhala politician will dare to go against Sinhala Buddhist Monks. They are superior species and even Buddha cannot stop them. Most of The SriLankan leaders are Buddhists converted Christian and re converted to Buddhists.

    It is time for Muslims to realise the nature of threat they face and they should blame themselves for the current status. They should realise that Tamil is their mother tongue and North and East of Sri Lanka is their traditional homeland. It is not too late to become part of your motherland and face the threat together with Tamils. It is the safe place for both communities. You should recognise that the past differences between Tamils and Muslims are created by a third force (Sinhala)and it is not due to rivalry between you. In the name of democracy, in the name of rule of law you can succeed if both work together.

      Although I cannot agree with all the negative reasons given by Ajith concerning the plight of the Muslims I would say that Muslims are now at the receiving end because the community as a whole lacks ‘political awareness’ and this weakness is being exploited by a few who have self-appointed themselves as ‘political leaders’ of the community for their own self interest but do not ‘honestly and sincerely’ represnt the interests of the Muslim community’ These leaders always align themselves only with the major political parties which, in the current political trend, seek to form Govts. alternatively. These leaders do not give any idea to the community of widening its engagement with other political parties, either of the left or the right and even the Tamils parties. The civil society leadership of the comunity too does not think of engaging with civil society organisations of other communities who generally work for the welfare and benefit of all communities irrespective of communal or religious differences. Due to these factors the Muslim community remains isolated and do not attract the suppport of political parties or the civil society. Now thanks to the BBS, JHU and the like, the ‘communal pinch’ given by them to the Muslims is beginning to show positive reaction from the Muslims and there seems to awakening to the realilies and the need for the community to re-think of their political and social alliances and move in a new direction.

      Typical, low, BBS mentality. You are the ones who are trying to further or isolate the Muslims and not allow them to assimilate. Talking about Muslims going to North East and settling down there. You are talking rubbish. Muslims can live anywhere they want in this country as much as Tamils too, as we minorities are all citizens of Sri Lanka, and our rights are enshrined in the Constitution. Although Muslims and Tamils speak Tamil as their mother tongue, there are vast differences in cultural, religious and linguistic characteristics (Muslims use a mix of both Urdhu and Arabis in their dialects, whilst Tamils, a heavy influence of South Indian slang). You can never appreciate these differences and therefore not in any position to pass judgement on such issues.

    I went through a 30 yr civil war which put our country 30 years behind .Left the country whn i was a teen and now a citizen of a foreign country paying my taxes there ..Why purely because we had no oppurtunity of the upcoming youth .

    Lanka has a brain drain a we know all the educated folk want to leave the country and i admire the few patriots who stay back and try and build a life , start ventures on a shaky ground.

    Now we are faced again by even another turmoil purely fueled by hard line extreme SO CALLED MOMKS..i dont see them as monks but THUGS WITH ORANGE ROBES. Trying to harp on the uneducated masses of Srilanka.
    And it is working ..people are listening.

    It will come to a point where there will be a fuel where here might be an accident with 2 tuk tuk drivers ..words will be exchanged and a fight initiated beacuse of a race..which will turn into a semi riot and grow into a mass burning of establishments..What do we have Another 83 ..The Goivernmnet will turn its blind eye ..and it will be too late another 30 years later ..

    What i dont understand is we vent out social media but its time if the majotity of the real Sinhalese are NOT RACISTS stand behind your people and take force into BANNING the BSS ..Have a protest against them..
    Words will not make any difference for these thugs..let alone im sure they care less on what goes on the internet .

    Its time to come together .. Organize a rally to show defiance against these sort of activities.
    Somebody – Some Group take a stand…and show everyone LANKA is really one and wants to be UNITED .
    Put the BSS to BED !!!

    These bogus monks, who are in fact thugs in robes, must be de-robed and banished from the Sasanaya. There definitely is a foreign hand that’s in tow with this so-called BBS to create a conflict between Sinhala Buddhists and Muslims in Sri Lanka. Another racial conflict will certainly create a rift amongst the people of this country and help all those elements waiting for a chance to divide the country once again. The government must immediately put its foot down on these organizations and imprison all these thugs and ensure there will not be another ethnic conflict in the country ever again.

    Bravo to Sri Lanka ! one war ended lets start another. Looks like the Bodu Balu Sena Sinhala group is creating an enemy that did not exist. Many muslims that lived for centuries in Sri Lanka went about wearing their garbs and did not feel threatened by anyone. Had successful businesses, contributed towards the economy and lived among the common man with no problem.

    It seems now the BBS who are going to save the country. I hope you save your lovely country and not run it into another war and sacrifice more innocent lives and call yourself the “Singhaya” with blood in your hands.

    Elpitiya, liberated?

    No, I don’t think so.

    The Sinhalese owners have been forced, coerced & intimidated into towing the line of the BBS. Failure to comply with the BBS directive will lead their own Sinhala brotheren to be labelled,”Traitors”.

    The Athugal Pura Sinha Pataw assaulted a man and a woman with rotten eggs holding No Limit bags. The group’s motto is “Konda pana athi niyama sinhalayanta pamanai” (Exclusively for Sinhalese with a backbone)Posted under the title Kurunegala Pursuit and Attack with Rotten Eggs and says “If you go to No Limit or Fashion Bug we will attack. If you have their bags in your hand we will attack. And that is not all. Those who betray the race, even if they have police protection will be attacked with rotten eggs today, feces tomorrow.”

    Is this what the BBS & the other hardline Sinhala Buddhist groups mean by saying, “Liberated”?

    Most of us are missing the point when we attack the BBS. I believe that the ideological violence that the BBS unleashing on the minority is a only a mirror of what is happening in the midst of us. Without tacit support at a broader societal level such extremism cannot survive. While the elite in the cities may not endorse the tactics adopted by the BBS, there is patent apathy among the elite and the literati.

    We need to understand that Sri Lanka has a long way to go before we can claim to have achieved equity and equality for all our citizens. This is because our political and social fabrics have not changed since independence. We began our independence as a divided nation and continue to practice those same divisive policies along language, Caste and religious lines.

    We have adopted and institutionalized a system that segregates minorities from the majority and are vehemently against dismantling a political systems that favours segregation. No politician would dare touch a system that can be perceived as going against the majority.

    An aggrieved majority is potential cauldron of social unrest. the legacy of invasion and occupation has let an indelible “victim complex” among majority Sinhalese; the majority feeling and behaving like the minority. Political expediency plays on these fears.

    Because of this appeasement of the majority, minority representation is disproportionately skewed towards the majority in many branches of government. This is particularly so in the defense and security establishment with hardly any Muslim and Tamil representation. Many officers retire early due to various machinations.

    Muslims particularly have been at the butt end of discrimination particularly in the field of education. Colombo and Kandy have large populations of Muslims. One would expect to have a few decent schools for them in these two cities of the caliber of Dharmaraja or a Nalanda. Muslims politicians Marhooms A C S Hammeed & Ashraff the former Minister of Foreign Affairs the leader of the Muslim Congress respectively who took up the issue with the relevant authorities were promised Boys School in Kandy and Colombo by the late President Premadasa and President Kumaranatunga respectively at different points in time. Both projects never took of the ground due to protests by Buddhists.
    It would be interesting to note reasons for this lack of interest among the politicians of this country.

    While Muslims have little or no access to good schools,they are at disadvantage at getting government jobs as well. As a result Muslims have taken to self-employment. Muslims get into any form of self-employment from driving three wheelers to running grocery shops to earn a living. It appears that this is angering the majority community.

    Our religious practices too have come under attack, for reasons best known to the majority. Muslim places of worship occupy the least amount of space, have no furniture and fittings and probably cost the least to build. Admittedly Muslims congregate to pray, creating perhaps a sense of unease among non-Muslims; the worry and lament I have heard and often from the Monks I know is this “Why can’t we get our people to come to the temple like you all do”.

    All this points to one salient fact; instead of finding commonalities across communities, and looking for accommodation, we have mastered the art of divisiveness. Instead equity and equality we foster one-upmanship!

    We will remain a divided nation as long as we have institutionalized divisiveness. Unless we have a secular constitution, unless we dismantle religion and language based schools and unless we stop ethnicity based job allocations, we will continue to decline decay as a country.

    The minority can do little to change the process of degeneration that has set in; if we do we would be perceived as a bigger threat. It is the majority that has to dig deep and examine the Sinhala Buddhist ethos to find out what ails them. Until we find the cause we will not find a cure.

    Unfortunately Elpitiya is only a symptom of that deep malaise that afflicts our country.

      I think until the Sinhala Buddhist Dogma is registered, there won’t be any progress in the country.

      Look at the Prime Minister….a Brainless Pin Padiya who cannot walk straight doing what….. He had been registered as a “Nidhan Hora” Relic thief. Also over three dozen Kasippy Mudalalis and Tavern owners in the Parliament. Drug dealers, race bookie owners and 10% Kappan mudalalis in Parliament….what can you expect.

      A Gamarala as President and Minister of Health and a Genu Kicha as Minister of education, grade 8 school drop out as Minister of housing and Home Kolla as minister of social service……what a shame for our country.

      This is Jokers Paradise running under famous Buddhist Sinhala Dogma.

      Very soon all these Gon Harakas will have to learn Swimming ….as when the time comes there won’t be any boats left, so get ready to swim across Palk straight.
