First Sri Lankan Killed In Syria With ISIS: Investigate And Punish All – Muslim Council Tells Sirisena

Writing to the President the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka said; “The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka, on behalf of the Muslim Community expresses its deep dismay at media reports of the first Sri Lankan killed in battle in Syria with IS. This group of extremists who call themselves the caliphate or Islamic State (Formerly known as ISIS) is a threat to Islam and the group violates both Sharia law and humanitarian law.

“Islam is a religion of mercy and tolerance that totally prohibits the taking of innocent lives. There is no theological basis for any crimes to be committed through terrorism or violence. The Muslims of Sri Lanka join Islamic scholars and Muslim leaders around the world to condemn without any reservation the ISIS and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi for failing to respect key tenants of Islam. Their actions are un-Islamic and inhumane.

ISIS Sri Lanka“While we wish to emphasize that these are actions of misguided individuals, we call upon Your Excellency and the Government of Sri Lanka to conduct a thorough investigation, punish all who may have violated the laws of the land, and ensure that no more Sri Lankans are misled in to joining any terrorist movement.

“As civil society representatives of Muslims, we commit to help in any investigation and action that would be initiated by the government.”

According to the media reports, a karate master from Galewela, known in the Islamic State as Abu Shuraih Sailani (not the real name) who has been reportedly killed in Syria in an air strike last week is said to be the first Sri Lankan member of the ISIS. Abhu Shuraih Sailani, 37, after completing his GCE O/L, has pursued Islamic studies with great zeal mastering Hadith science and continued on contemporary Fiqh (The theory or philosophy of Islamic law, based on the teachings of the Koran and the traditions of the Prophet), completing his LLB in Shariah Law from the International Islamic University in Pakistan.

    @iftikar z, the imams quote from the Book exhort to follow the tradition of Prophet Muhammed, it’s okay, however hackneyed but they live on charity and most of the mosques are running with sparse income so they expect foreign aid and if they get they should preach on the outlandish ideology in the garb of Islam. Poverty alleviation (job creation indigenous produce self sufficiency etc) is all the politicians’ work whereas they guide them to mislead and heavily discriminated on religion, language, caste, region and also heavily on a party support base (family bandyism) yet no independent candidate is winning despite they boast nursing the electorate. A PIN number allotted should show the status of the constituent and there won’t be lies and the dependency on henchmen in local governance etc. Please think out of box instead of exclusive political culture. After losing the election they blame the voters for betrayal and revenge madly which is evident from the past as they know which segment voted for them nothing secret!

    More food for thought: ISIS ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE – the-yinon-plan-greater-israel-syria-iraq-and-isis! August 10, 2014 at 7:12pm WAKE UP AMERICA (WORLD) – lets not be played by the NWO Psychopaths parasite class again, those that occupy OUR public offices! ISIS = ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE? Plan baked by CIAda, MOSADa and MI5a… You bet it is…. This ZIOnazi plan has been on bake for a long while! “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” – Brockman Adams, Director UN Health Organization The former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British and American intelligence and the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Snowden said intelligence services of three countries created a terrorist organisation that is able to attract all extremists of the world to one place, using a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”. NSA documents refer to recent implementation of the hornet’s nest to protect the Zionist entity by creating religious and Islamic slogans. According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”. (Gulf News, July 15, 2015) Let us be under no illusions, the Islamic State is a CIA-Mossad creation. It is an intelligence asset.

        Originally, when it all started, the name ISIS stood for Islamic State for Iraq and Syria, but eventually it was also found to be the ACRONYM for Israeli Secret Intelligence Service. But the destabilizing effect brought on all Middle Eastern Arab countries is by Jewish design – The Mossad (Israel Secret Service) has been instrumental along with CIA to topple regimes and governments who refused to tow the line when it comes to the supply of gas and oil, as for example Libya, since Gaddafi had minted a gold coin for trade in oil to be used amongst all African countries, Iraq, Saddam Hussein for strengthening the Euro and refusing to give support to Petrodollars, the UN split Sudan into two countries North and South, and now S.Sudan is filled with US Soldiers extracting oil, Yemen (another Muslim country) is now occupied by US Forces and oil extraction is going on with no government in full control. The attack of rebel forces called Houthis was a ploy to create the destabilizing effect and take full control of their oil fields close to coastal areas in S.Yemen. All this is happening at great pace, except Saudi Arabia has been spared so far since they have already guaranteed their oil supplies to the Americans also have given them whatever else they want in the import of Pork and Liquor supplies to their American Base Camps. The only areas prohibited to them are Mecca and Medina (Holy places to Muslims). All these are happening under a deceptive means, (much more than what meets the eye) purely to serve American interests, with the Israeli intelligence playing a major role through intelligence gathering and providing tacit support to create this instability. It is also being done to prevent unity amongst Arab nations. It is well known fact that if those Arab nations stood united as a force, Israel could be in peril. So they planned out a strategy to keep those infernos aflame. If Russia had been strong to maintain balance of power, then most of these disturbances could have been prevented. They are even threatening to withdraw the 2022 FIFA World awarded to Qatar on grounds of bribes being paid to FIFA officials. Whereas Qatar claims they won it purely on Merits since they employed the services of the best in the world to make their presentation. But the truth is that the West don’t want too see the Arab countries making an impact on World Sports. To some degree, Dubai has already made some with ICC (Cricket) headquartered there, and many of the Tennis action and Formula One Racing events taking place, but nothing yet as big as a World Cup magnitude.

          Yes. @hickmath, intelligence agencies hatch plots so secretively even after the success of the operation they can keep it secret for decades and when it becomes obsolete they reveal the plot. I can cite lot of instances but because of the lapse of time they were made mysteries. One such incident is the disappearance of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose. Still Indian nuclear scientists are dying under mysterious circumstances. The caliphate agenda of Al-qaeda is hijacked since Bin Laden who included Shias too in his expansionist plan. ISIS sharpens the divide shifting stances to whip up sectarian killings. Any attempt to unify sects in Islam is thwarted by armed rebellion, military intervention, civil war and coups de tat of all sorts. Sri Lankan government should see to that Muslim youth are not indoctrinated to join any of the suicidal fanatic sectarian organizations instead by training and employing them decently forex can be earned. This first victim would have joined this terror group because he couldn’t feed his 6 kids with the income he got teaching in an international school. The salary is never sufficient and the teachers are grossly underpaid unlike state schools. A very few male teachers are employed in this mushrooming education business!

    Syria, Russian ally sells oil to Russia to whom ISIS sells oil? Why Israel opposes Iran nuclear deal? Why Al-qaeda opposes ISIS? Without answers to these questions the nexus cannot be proved.

    Q1. Who is a Muslim? A Muslim is a person who submits his will to Allah amd accepts Him as his Lord, and further accepts Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon him – PBOH) as His (Allah’s) last and Final Messenger. Believes in His Angels, His divine Books (4 in all) revealed to mankind through His Prophets, the last of which is The Holy Quran. Believes in all the Prophets sent down from time to time to guide mankind onto the straight Path that would take him to Paradise. Believes that all good and bad comes from Allah, and the bad (like sickness and hardship) is meant to test the strength of each persons faith in Allah, and if they do not budge in their commitment, then it is a means of purification of ther sins committed on earth (if that is His intent and purely upto HIM) before being held accountable in the hereafter. Believes in the coming of the Day of Judgement and the reckoning (held accountable) for the good and bad that each person has committed during their lifetime on earth. Q2. Who is Not a Muslim? A person who does not accept Allah as the only God worthy of worship. Q3. Who is Iblis? Iblis is Shaithan (in another name – Arabic common name referring to The Devil), Angel Lucifer in the Bible. Allah created Iblis from fire, whilst all His other Angels were created from Light – Arabic is Noor. Man was created by Allah from dust and clay, and we return to that when we die. Q4. Who is an Iblis Follower? Iblis follower is one who has gone astray with distorted ideas of what is the TRUTH as revealed by Allah, and rose up as a challenge to Allah to prove a point. When he was ordered to bow down to the First man than Allah created which he refused whilst all the other Angels did. He refused to bow down to man on grounds that he was way superior than man, as he was made from Fire whilst mankind was molded from clay. He also warned Allah not to create man as he will be unjust, unkind, cheater, robber, murderer, drunkards, and commit all the vice and sin that can ever be imagined on this most beautiful and purified blessed planet earth. But Allah told him ‘I know what I am doing, but you disobeyed My order and you are condemned to Hell’. But he was also granted his own wish to take all those who go astray, with him to Hell. Q5. Can a Muslim call another Muslim, non-Muslim? No never. But people do it in anger, built up or motivated thru hatred, times when they act irrational when provoked. It is a human weakness. Weakness in Faith which is the belief in the existence of Allah (Arabic Imaan), who is the Best Judge to dispense Justice in a fair manner, under His own time and terms. Q6. Who is a Kuffar? Kuffar is the plural Arabic word derived from singular word ‘Kafir’ which means in general ‘an unbeliever’. A person who does not accept Allah as his Creator, and then flowing from that point, does not accept Prophet Muhammed (PBOH) as His last and final Messenger. Usually, non-Muslims are referred to by their own religions like Yahoudhi who are the Jews, whilst Nasarani refers to Christians. Common name for all non-Muslims in general ‘Kuffar’. It is true that many in the media (both Western and Arab) have used this word in very disparaging ways that make non-Muslims feel disliked, unwanted, disgusted and isolated. Thus they resent its use in reference to them. Best alternative is to cook up another new word to erase the bad image. By the way did you recognize the word Sailani used in this victims name? It reflects on his country of origin, which in Arabic still means Sailan derived from Ceylon. Easy to remember two syllable and is the old name given by the British. Even before that, Serendipity was the name and even referred to in the Holy Quran as the land where Prophet Adam and Eve was casted to from Heaven after they disobeyed Allah’s command and fell to the Devil’s temptation, when they ate from the forbidden fruit. But I wonder, what is your point in asking these Questions?

      Hikmath Thanks for the Islamic Theological explanation of the Faith. Read below my responses. “Q4. Who is an Iblis Follower? ” “But Allah told him ‘I know what I am doing, but you disobeyed My order and you are condemned to Hell’. But he was also granted his own wish to take all those who go astray, with him to Hell. ” So, the Iblis Follwers, ISIS, ISIL, Taliban , Boko Haram, Deobandi rtc. accordingly must end up in Hell. We can’t wait. Can you send them now, so that there will be peace on Earth? 2. Scholar from al-Azhar: Wahhabism is a Satanic Faith, the Horn of the Devil that Muhammad Predicted https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufxTUFapy1w 3. “But I wonder, what is your point in asking these Questions? ” The Point is that about 9% of the Saudi Arabians follow Wahhabism, or Iblism, and call other who do not follow Islam, the they way they follow, non-Muslims and try to kill them. So they do not know Islam. The logic is that ONLY those who are Followers of Iblis will try to Kill other Muslims. Therefore, ISIS, ISIL, And other Wahhabis and their Clones follow Iblis, Shaitan, Devil, Satan.

    @amarasiri, I like to avoid cliche yet I may repeat for wider audience trite so I want to be terse in my opinion: a muslim is a righteous person, what is right and wrong he shouldn’t get confused then he will end up nihilistic see in this case he tells his wife a lie thinking it is a white lie but now it transformed into a black lie, he ceased to be a muslim when he lied!

    Trinity College is in the news again. Previously it was allegedly involved in funding the LTTE to the tune of Rs 120 million. Now it is providing personnel to Islamic terror groups. Yet it was a school with a Christian ethos. what gives ?

      Ram “Now it is providing personnel to Islamic terror groups. Yet it was a school with a Christian ethos. what gives ?” Trinity: 1 in 3 and 3 in 1. 1+1+1 =1 1x1x1 =1 3×1 =1 The Trinity Algebra is in Error. Therefore, Trinity is in Error. The Inquisition Killed People based on Trinity. Trinity College Kills People now using LTTE and ISIS. Could it be that Thre is some correlation between Trinity and Killings? At Least there is one between ISIS and Iblis, Devil., and Satan. Has Satan got into Trinity College? Is this circumstantial evidence?
