Fashion Bug Attacker Anti-Muslim Monk Changes His Robe To Islam Burqa

By Colombo Telegraph

Three Buddhist monks who had been implicated in the mob attack on Fashion Bug in Pepiliyana had surrendered to the Mirihana Police Station yesterday evening were set free after both parties eventually came to a settlement.

17 suspects including the monks were produced at the Gangodawila Magistrate Court today and the management of the Fashion Bug and the suspects connected over the attack on the premises last week, decided to amicably resolve the issue today.

The picture shows one anti-Muslim attacker Buddhist monk changed from his traditional way of wearing the outer robe to a women’s dress burqa in Islamic culture.

It was another, in a series of attacks against Muslims as Fashion Bug owns by a family of Sri Lankan Muslims. The mob had gone on a rampage setting clothes that were in the store on fire and shouting obscenities at the girls who worked in this complex, saying that they should be ashamed to work in an enterprise owned by Muslims and to never come back. The mob had also manhandled some of the girls.

Tamil Parliamentarian M.A. Sumanthiran told Parliament on March 21, 2013; “Muslim women can’t walk on the streets of this country today in their traditional dress. In Manampitiya, Hon. Minister, a young girl in an abaya, was walking and she was attacked. She has made a complaint to the Polannaruwa police. On the day the Mattala airport was opened, the same night a church in Weerakettiya was attacked by a mob, unfortunately led by religious leaders – by Buddhist monks. And they go and demonstrate before the Indian High Commission saying two venerable monks have been attacked in Tamil Nadu. We condemn those attacks. We don’t support that. No monk should be attacked in Tamil Nadu. But why aren’t they complaining about the church being attacked in Weerakettiya, in your own country, before you look at other countries? Why aren’t they going in processions protesting that Muslim women are being attacked on the road? You don’t go on processions for that, you only have to complain about other countries. Look at yourself, inside, first. You put your house right. If you put your house right no one else will ever be able to point fingers at you. You have this happening in your own country. You treat people who are numerically in the minority like dirt, and then you have the brass to stand up and pontificate about international interference and call that bullying. When you get a little bit of the taste of your own medicine you are smarting but you can’t understand how much we feel being treated like dirt in this country. You talk about changing the goal post.”

    MUSLIM What a forthright and daring speech by Mr Sumanthiran. We Muslims should be ashamaed of our Representatives in Parliament. Mr Sumanthiran in his speech has done a million times more benefit to the Muslims than a bunch of Muslim cowards in Parliament for the whole of last year. Thank you Mr Sumanthiran we are ever grateful to you.

    @ lanken truth and true lanken
    Having previously worked in one of these stores I find your lies hard accept.Individuals are chosen to work on their merits not on their race. Its difficult to swallow that you still believe what the BBs is saying about these stores, wasnt NOLIMIT accused of giving toffees to reduce fertility in sinhalese women and that turned out to be a hoax as the toffees were uswatte toffees.
    by saying that these organisations dnt employ sinhalese males you are just making yourself look silly, just walk into one of their store…

    I condemn the above attack whole heartedly.
    Neither MR nor Siblings will stand for the sake of poor sinhales .But the ven: Buddhist Monks always take front line to protect the poor sinhala people .We sinhales should unite . Just like the musilms and Tamils .Muslims never vote any sinhales Politician . So are the Tamils
    Thats how they made a muslim chief minister to the east.muslims never allow interracial marriages if the non Islamic partner wont willing to convert to the Islam.when it comes to Tamils , they seem far better .Religious harmony with Muslims is just a Bla Bla of Bankrupted politicians like Wasu and all other selfish Sinhala Politicians.

      Yes, it is true when Muslim marry non-Muslim, they agree that non-Muslim party will convert to Islam, or else marriage is off. That is how strong influence and conviction Islam has on its adherents. No Muslim would want to get cremated after death, and every Muslim will want their partner in marriage to experience God’s mercy of forgiveness for sins committed and enter paradise, simply by attesting that there is no God but Allah, and accepting Prophet Muhammed (PBOH) as the last and final messenger of Allah. When anyone converts and becomes a Muslim, then it becomes compulsory to adapt to the lifestyle of a believing Muslim. It is a lifetime commitment to defend Islam until death to them apart.

        Yes this is how islam became an extremist religion.Every religion has Its own facts and myths .It s relevant to the Buddhism too though the Buddhist Philosophy is never challenged by contemporary science, It too has some myths.But as 21st century human Being , We should accept the true facts of a religion and ignore the myths which was preached by 1000 or 1500 years ago when man believed that planet earth was flat .If you still believe that A wife should leave her believing because of marrying a Islamic Guy,If a woman is forced to wear black cloths whole her life in this colorful world,If a jihadist beheads someone in the name of God .If an innocent cow has to suffer more than 30 minutes hearing the some religious preaching when it is killed , Its clear that some thing is totally wrong .Just like every Object in this world .Islam too should evaluate .Otherwise the planet earth will have to suffer so many crimes in the name of God..

          I agree with you that all the religions need to be evaluated. An open discussion between religions would be beneficial. And if we use the lands and money spent on temples, kovils, mosques, churches etc, to build schools and hospitals, it would be worthy cause.

          But you are very much ill-informed about Islam and Muslims. No woman is forced to wear black cloths. They can use any colour. Only condition is that they should not provoke sexual appeals by showing body shape. Many Muslim women choose black all over the world because they are readily available, cheap, needs less maintenance etc.

          There are many Muslim women left Islam for marriage, simple examples- you know the Indian actresses Kushboo and Jyothika. There are many in Sri Lanka as well, but not famous like the above. If you still want a proof, go to the garage in Yasodara Mw in Dehiwala, the chief mechanic’s (Sinhala Buddhist)wife is a Muslim, but now practicing Buddhism. Some fundamentalists in countries like Pakistan do not tolerate it, but still inter religious marriages happen with Muslims everywhere. Conversion is compulsory only if one of the parties is too religious and cannot give up his/her faith for love.

          Be-headings happen everywhere for religions, robbery, love affairs, politics etc. Those are done by criminals. Criminals need only a reason to kill. If three monks attack a Muslim’s business or if one monk is caught for drunk drive, we cannot conclude that all the monks are thugs.

          No cow is preached for 30 minutes before killing. In fact, Islamic way of killing animals is the most fastest, resulting in lessor pain. In pre-Islamic era, the Arabs used to cut legs of animals one at a time and leave the animal to suffer for weeks until removing the next leg. This method they used to preserve meat as they did not have refrigerators at that time. Changing this method, Islam ordered to kill the animal once for all with a single stroke by a sharp knife. If you tell not to kill animals because they suffer the greatest pain, then you are a big liar. You know the reason that you killed so many humans including Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and others by the name of religion, language, politics etc, and now if you say you are an animal lover, then you are the biggest liar. And you know the pain you are causing to Muslims with your vicious words and acts are more painful than cutting their necks for thirty minutes.

          Just by evaluating Islam you cannot change the planet earth. First you evaluate yourself!

            M P and a former Minister Karunanayaka’s wife
            is a Muslim and she didn’t have any objections of
            all three children growing in her Husband’s religion.
            Tamil actress Shalini was born to a Muslim father and
            christian mother and married Hindu Ajith Kumar.Sharukh
            Khan is with a Hindu wife, not converted to Islam.Steve
            job the creator of smart phone was born to an Arab
            father and given up for adoption to a non Arab family.
            Muslims in India and Srilanka are well integrated
            into Buddhist and Hindu communities.If the leader of a
            country is from majority community and most of top
            administrative posts are held by them and top religious
            readers are from them and if the main opposition is from
            them,is it not their responsibility to provide protection
            to a community which is less than 10% in numbers?

          @bitter False, You have brain washed by anti-islamic websites and books, people like you blame isalm then they revert islam that what normally happend. Buddhism is not religion, it is only philosophy, Buddha was man and preached some good teaching but it is does not cover whole life style, but Islam is religion for whole humanity. it can apply for any history of earth life, Islam means peaceful religion, that why Islam is one of the fast growing religion the world, many scientist revert to Islam now, If you dont know Islam, dont blame. Buddhist people only think that cow only have life, they dont think about other organisms such as fish, plants, mushroom those can eat by them.

      Bitter Truth, how can you say that Muslims and Tamils never vote for any Sinhalese politicians. You are wrong I have not voted for Muslim politicians. How do you know what u say is true when voting is done on a secret ballot? And I know many Muslim girls married to Sinhalese men and they follow Buddhism. A trait in our countrymen is they assume things and believe it to be true without any logic.

    Quite true Sanjaya. They are a disgrace to Buddhism. But you can show your fellow Buddhists what these thugs are capable of. They create havoc rather than peace.
    Have these monks forgotten what they have been taught? Why be a monk if they want to be terrorists? Might as well have joined the underworld.
    I think it’s high time the majority and minorities start speaking louder. The parliamentarians are a bunch of buggers without a back bone. If these monks are trying to cause problem and distrupt peace they need to be arrested and kicked out of the parliament. Where are all the good old Monks we used to know. The true Buddhists and true Sri Lankans. All of these thugs are a bunch of illiterate fools. They don’t know what they’re talking about. We know what they’re upto at night. Blue films and eating meat is their life. And here they’re pointing fingers when the other four fingers are pointing back at them.
    As for the Fashion Bug and No Limit problems. Its just absurd. Targetting their stores is a pathetic thing to do. And so low of them. Don’t hey realize that the majority work there and are happy working there? These fellows are digging their own graves.
    It’s high time madam Chandrika comes into parliament. Atleast she had the decency to keep the country united.

    According to another article it was Mahinda Rajapaksa who spoke to the owner of this unfortunate store, and “urged” him to not show the tapes and to agree to a settlement. No surprise to many of us, if this is true.
    It is very sad that our country has come down to this. Rogue monks are given protection, violent thugs are prevented from being held accountable, and the dishonest leaders of this country, right at the top, interfere in the laws of this broken country. What hope for us? Arrogance and power supersedes law and order.
    Shame on the Rajapaksa’s, for they exposed their dishonesty and corruption, in this case.

    These rogue monks must be disrobed and chased out of the temples for what they are doing.

      Dhaksha,
      MR is counting his votes far ahead of the next presidential election and the next parliamentary election.
      This is why he brought about a settlement.
      The Muslim parliamentarians are doing the same.
      Survival in Politics at all cost is the Name of the Game.
      The Rogue Monks too understand and support these moves – they too have to exist after the next election(s).
      The Mahanayakes too have to safeguard their luxurious lifestyles complete with Benz cars,and hence dare not reprimand the Rogue Monks.
      Villagers now do not fall down and worship monks at the roadside which I have seen in the fifties and sixties.
      It is now upto the buddhist laity to ‘discipline’ rogue monks – maybe by not offering ‘dane’,not supporting the sanghavasas with food etc.
      The so called “devout” buddhist laity who crave to become Basnayake Nilames & enjoy this ‘prestige’,too can contribute.
      The claim of Pristine Buddhism in Sri Lanka,is now not voiced.

    Peace Lover you said something there when you said there have been many backroom deals. Yes.Don’t you remember how our recent Muslim leaders each rushed to their peer lands- Ashroff to Libya and Iran -check Airport records- to comeback with what?- others to Saudi Arabia – You know them? These were the ones who helped import foreign Islamic ideologies but playing a double game with the orthodox Muslim public. They did not dare to go to Iraq, the land of Saddam Hussein, who was unorthodox Muslim serving liquor openly at National day Receptions. Only Anura Bandaranaike went there.But these so called Muslim leaders were hiding facts from the Muslims of this country. They are the ones who did backroom deals and created all this Islamic chauvinism here which has now earned response from others.Historians have shown the same thing happened in 1915 which brought out Muslim-Sinhalese conflict. That time it was the greedy South Indian (Coastal)Moors who were both not familiar with the cultural traditions of the country and wanted to show their power as they did in India against the Hindus. There was no problem till these foreign influence Islamic creeds came in here and trying to dislodge orthodox Muslims.

      No muslim, orthodox or unorthodox, serve liquor! The problem started from, When you begin to send girls and women as migrant workers, not from Ashroff or muslim leaders! Any way we have to keep on beggining Mulim countries for our survival, because No IMF of World BAnk now. China is giving loan and when there is a trouble they will send a ship and take all their workers back. This is what they did in Libya, Sudan, Siriya and Egypt.

    THE EARLY ARAB TRADERS FROM MOROCCO AND YEMEN WHO BROUGHT ISLAM TO US MORE THAN 1500 YEARS AGO MUST HAVE CAPTURED THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE LOCALS FOR THEM TO GIVE THEIR DAUGHTERS IN MARRIAGE AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO SETTLE DOWN HERE! REMEMBER THEY DID NOT BRING THEIR ARAB WIVES WITH THEM. HOW DID THEY DO THIS WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING THE LANGUAGE?!!THE ANCESTRY OF THE SAINTS WHOSE SHRINES ARE IN OUR COASTAL TOWNS LIKE BERUWALA AND MATARA CAN BE TRACED TO THEM. WHAT IS CLEAR IS THEY HAD HIGH STANDARDS OF BEHAVIOUR AND SATAN WAS FAR AWAY FROM THEM.WE ARE CALLED MOORS BECAUSE OF THEM!
    THERE ARE ONLY TWO CAUSES FOR ANY PROBLEM.
    FIRSTLY IT IS LACK OF LOVE OF ALLAH SWT.THE HEART WAS CREATED AS THE ABODE OF THIS LOVE ONLY. IF YOU PUT THE LOVE OF OTHER THINGS THERE YOU HAVE CORRUPTED IT.
    SECONDLY LACK OF THANKFULNESS. THANKFULNESS BRINGS MORE BLESSINGS AS DESCRIBED IN VERSE 7 SURAH IBRAHIM.’WA IZZ THA AZZANA RABBUKUM LA IN SHAKARTHUM LA AZEEDANNAKUM WALA IN KAFARTHUM INNA AZZBI LASHDEED!=WHEN YOUR LORD PROCLAIMED IF YOU GIVE THANKS I WILL GIVE YOU MORE OF MY BLESSINGS AND IF YOU ARE THANKLESS MY PUNISHMENT IS INDEED SEVERE!

    DO NOT BLAME THE BODU BALA SENA!LOOK AT THIS SEVERE WARNING.COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS DAILY TO STOP THE ANGER OF ALLAH SWT DESCENDING ON US. GOOD HEALTH, FOOD TO EAT, PLACE TO LIVE AND SAFETY FROM ENEMIES AND OUR IMAN ARE GREAT BLESSINGS.
    COUNT EVERY LITTLE BLESSING YOU HAVE DAILY DID YOU SAY THANK YOU FOR HAVING A FAMILY , WIVES AND CHILDREN ? FOR YOUR EYESIGHT?YOUR JOB? COUNT THE BLESSINGS DAILY AND THE ANGER OF ALLAH SWT WILL STOP.
    ALSO MAKE THOUBA. BODU BALA SENA CANNOT DO NOTHING TO YOU IF ALLAH SWT IS WITH YOU!!!
    IF ALLAH SWT IS NOT WITH YOU NO ONE CAN SAVE YOU!!!!!REFLECT AND REGROUP UNDER THE ABOVE TWO BANNERS AND VICTORY IS YOURS INSHAA ALLAH. BODU BALA SENA WILL BE REDUCED TO BORU BALA SENA BY THE WILL OF ALLAH SWT.

      Most Muslims are well aware of placing their absolute trust in Allah. Tie your Camel and put your Trust in Allah. Having placed our trust and next taking necessary steps to muster our resources to combat this ever growing menace on the attack of our Honour and Property. Masha’Allah, the awareness has reached the Middle East and North African (MENA) region. The Arabs have a special place in their heart for Lanka as such they will be watching its developments closely. The Muslims should unite as one community and respect each others different preferences to following their Imaams or schools of Islamic thoughts.

      Whoever intends the Truth, he should seek it from its correct source. And the Truth does not come about through venerating individuals, nor through flashy words, nor by having a majority opinion. It only comes about through ittibaa`, following the Truth, following the first generations, the generations of the Companions and the Taabi`een and proceeding upon their methodology.

      Some day the Muslims can voluntarily return to their Moor roots with the knowledge of Arabic, Insha’Allah.

    What I understood from the courts was that Fashion Bug pardoned the criminals but it was the police who withdrew the case as the case was filed by the Police. Fashion Bug cannot withdraw the case. Magistrate exercised his right. Even if Fashion Bug pardons the criminals, Police need not withdraw the case. Pardon given by FB need not necessarily be a license for the police to pardon. Legal luminaries can comment on my humble goda perakkadoru/

      You are right on the issue. The incident is an action of resorting to riot which is an offence against the state. So the Police should prosecute the offender. However, some high place manipulations had taken place with some fake excuse and the culprits have been allowed to ‘escape legally’ and the law of the land has been prostituted (sorry for the last word).
