Gnanasara & Abu Jahal

By Nishthar Idroos –

Nishthar Idroos

Venerable Galagoda Atte Gnanasara has done it again, he is the cynosure of all eyes once more. His audience gives him a standing ovation. What usually spews from his mouth very much consistent with his intellect. The Muslims of Sri Lanka were jolted at his bizarre revelation. The mastermind of the Easter Sunday explosion according to Gnanasara was Allah apparently.

The monk notorious for his often irrational and acerbic remarks reportedly made this startling declaration during a televised interview. To the best of my knowledge modern pharmacology is yet to discover a potential antidote for compounded ignorance. Its simply irreconcilable that a priest professing a system of belief which has in excess of a quarter of a billion adherents could speak about another faith this way.

He also warned of a similar terrorist attack in the future. The monk trying his very best to conceal vital information about another possible terrorist attack. This has to be taken seriously. Coming from someone well connected the intelligence apparatus of Sri Lanka must pay close attention to his words. Also the Muslim community must be greatly concerned.

At the early stages of Islam there was a man known as Abu Jahal, an arch enemy of the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him). He too was an individual of questionable character and with a foul mouth. Malleable to the extent that the chieftains of Makkah would entrust all the dirty works of persecuting Muslims to him. And he carried out his job to the satisfaction of his superiors. The pat on his shoulders by his trusted superiors always forthcoming. His actual name was Amr ibn Hisham but was known as Abu Hakam (Father of Wisdom).

Among the Qurashi tribe he was considered a wise man. His relentless hostility, belligerence to Islam, foolishness and his inability to perceive the existence of Allah and his unmitigated attachment to polytheism earned him the sobriquet Abu Jahal (Father of Ignorance). Islam views him as having malevolence and enmity to such an extent that the prophet (peace be upon him) also gave him the title of “Pharaoh of this Ummah“. And these kinds of pharaoh’s have been descending ever since and at every moment and throughout the world to test the Muslims. If the Muslims remain patient they will for sure come out unscathed and purified by the permission of Allah.

What this clergyman does not understand is that he had already admitted and accepted that Allah is his Lord. All of humanity has done this and they do not no it. This is because they never read the Quran. They think Quran came only for the Muslims. The Quran was revealed to all mankind, in it Allah clearly mentions that all of mankind have accepted Him as their Lord, here is the proof “And [mention] when your Lord took from the loins of the children of Adam – their descendents and made them testify of themselves, [saying to them], “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we have testified, lest you should say on the day of Resurrection, “Indeed, we were unaware.” (Al Quran 7: 172).

What this noble verse from the Quran confirms is the fact that all of us when we were mere souls Allah took an oath from us and He asked all of us “Am I not your Lord” and all of us acknowledged and affirmed alas we deny when we meet Him upon our return. So accordingly Venerable Gnanasara in essence accuses his own Lord of carrying out this ghastly attack.

Are these the words of someone who has lost his sanity or just a prelude to another intrigue that’s in store? We can safely eliminate the former. This member of the clergy will definitely pass all tests administered on him to test his sanity. For sure there is no need to get a professional psychiatrist to examine him. The created pandemonium can also be construed as desperate attempts usually seen when pressure mounts, during such time “sky” is indeed the limit to find excuses and escape routes.

Does venerable Gnanasara know who Allah is? He is the Creator, Sustainer, Provider, and Controller of the universe, who created everything for a reason. He is the One who gives life and the One who takes it. Muslims believe that He created humankind with a simple purpose – to worship Him alone without assigning partnership to anything.. He sent messengers to guide people in fulfilling this purpose. Some of these messengers include Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon all of them). Allah is greater than anything we can possibly imagine. Muslims repeat the words “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest) many times a day so as to remind themselves of His Greatness and Ability over everything in existence.

    NI says Allah sent messengers to guide people and Jesus is one of them. But Jesus in the holy scriptures of the bible says in John’s gospel 5,18-24 God is his father making himself equal with God, that Jesus only does what he sees the father doing, that the father loves the son and shows greater works to marvel, father allows the son to give life to the dead, father gives all judgment to the son, and those who believe in Jesus have everlasting life, and he taught his disciples to pray “Our Father in heaven, yours is the kingdom, power and glory” When Jesus ascended after his resurrection, angel on Mount. of olives said “This same Jesus will so come in like manner as you saw him go into heaven” 1 Thess.4,16 says Lord descends with trumpet to catch up believers. No need to kill humans to go to the paradise of YHVH, Jehovah God, as eternal life is a gift.

    You mean every thing was created by Allah ? Including Gnanasara, Hitler, Auswitch, Hiroshima, Covid-19 ?

    By the way I like his hairy armpits.

    Why was man made so foolish and weak, we are one of the weakest species ? Until science, our lives ( average Man-not the ruling sheiks/kings) were terrible, short and full of painful labour.

    Muslim terrorists also screamed “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest) before they blew up and killed about 300 innocent people and wounded about 500. They did this heinous crime to go to Allah and have a nice time with angels.

        Rajapakshes did not pay to radicalize Muslims; they paid them to work as spies to report activities of Tamil terrorists in the East. Foreign countries paid to radicalize Muslims by sending Wahhabi Muslim preachers. ‘Yahapalana’ dong keys turned a blind eye to what was going on in Kaththankudi because Ranil’s Government was heavily relying on Muslim politicians to survive.
        Gotabhaya Rajapakshe kicked out about 100 Wahhabi Muslim preachers who came as tourists and engaged in radicalizing Muslim youths.

    If you are making an allegation against Ven. Gnanasara like this you should give the name of the TV Channel, name of the program and the date so that the readers can check whether you are telling the truth. The way you have written, it sounds like you have fabricated this to tarnish the image of Ven. Gnanasara.
    —-
    Ven.Gnanasara gave an interview in ‘Theeranaya’ program in ITN on 12 September 2021. In that program Ven. Gnanasara said there is no point in looking for the Mastermind and blamed Wahhabi Muslim preachers and their publications for brainwashing Muslim youths. He quoted parts from those publications. He did not make irrational and acerbic remarks. He spoke with facts and said he take the full responsibility for what he says.

    Next they will ask who was the Mastermind behind the Mastermind.

        No deception brother.
        I , like Gnanasara, honestly believe that the Mastermind is residing up above the sky.
        Those who believe that Zaharan commited suicide with his whole family for the sake of a particular politician must be old inmates of Angoda.
        Take your time and try to visualise the process of a Sinhala politician preaching Islam to Zahran!
        (Don’t do that, you might risk ending up in Angoda)

        By the way who created God, Nathan?

          As usual you are wrong.
          I never voted for UNP nor any other party.

          “that event coupled with 1983 converted all you guys uncomprising supporters of UNP.”

          Alright, are you suggesting its like the “Battered Woman Syndrome” the more man abuses the woman wants to stay more closer to the abuser. Of course we have more examples, 6.9 million wanted the abuser.

          If your analysis is anything to go by why didn’t the Tamils stay closer to SLFP, Banda, Siri Mao, CP, ……from 1956 on wards?

          You need to erase your old files from your head.

    Religious beliefs, and whose god is bigger or better should be privately held views and not to be flaunted in public because each one has a different god and its impossible to know whose one is bigger or greater. Religion should be like underwear…don’t expose its contents in public.

    Another round of Muslim of bashing as the county is struggling with the pandemic and economic collapse. Sri Lanka is a multi religious country and needs all citizens to rally round to rebuild this country. Look at Indonesia and Malaysia which is also multi religious where Buddhism and Islam coexists in peace and harmony. All communities need to support and trust each other and not be mislead by racist rhetoric. Let the arm of the Law bring those who caused death and destruction to justice and not permit any source to stigmatise the Muslims and create disharmony.

    Tuan, in 1985 the Borobudur temple was bombed, in 2013 the Ekayana Buddhist monastery was bombed in Jakarta. As for other Muslim countries like Bangladesh there are lists of massacres. For the Middle East, don’t even ask about how poor Buddhists suffer. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Buddhists
