Gnanasara Thero Once Again Inciting Sinhalese Against Muslims

Malicious campaign pushing discriminated and frustrated Muslims to wall

Few weeks ago Ven Galagoda Atte Gnanasara Thero, known for inciting Sinhalese and unleashing violence against Muslims, said he would dissolve his organisation Bodu Bala Sena as it has achieved its target of setting up a Sinhala Buddhist government without minority support.

Following the election of the present government to power on 15 November 2019, he was rather quiet. Now that the parliamentary election is forthcoming, he has started his campaign once again pitting the Sinhalese against Muslims.There were reports that during the presidential elections in November 2019 Buddhist monks and temples were used to demonize Muslims to win Sinhala votes assuring security.

As part of this campaign to win Sinhala votes, he attempted to brand as extremist, several main stream Muslim Organisations and institutions numbering a colossal 42 including the prestigious Jaamia Naleemia Academy at Beruwala, the radiating centre of scholarly knowledge! A case of the ‘black pot’ calling the ‘silver kettle’, Black! This comes at a time when the island’s Muslim community remains deeply wounded following a decade of unchecked anti-Muslim propaganda and violence.

It is common knowledge that during the ethnic war Muslims also suffered only because they refused to  support the LTTE can for the division of the country. The entire Muslim population in the North and North East were kicked out within hours by the LTTE .Their belongings were looted and they ended up in refugee camps only with Rs 150. In the East, Muslims were massacred in mosques, their lands grabbed and livelihood deprived by the LTTE.

Once the war ended in May 2009, Muslims resumed their normal life.

However their hopes were shattered when there began a wave of well-planned violent attacks. This campaign, began with the destruction of a 400 year old Muslim shrine in Anuradhapura, followed by attacks on Dambulla and other mosques. There were attacks on Muslim owned businesses, allegations that doctors were trying to sterilize women in government hospitals, pressurising Muslim children to kneel down and worship teachers, demonstrations carrying photos of pigs with Allah’s name on it, arson attacks on Muslim owned textile and other outlets and shops, and a sinister campaign against Muslim women covering faces and wearing hijab. Attackers were widely known to be supported by Norwegian indoctrinated anti-Muslim monks and their side kicks.

In many public meetings monks openly incited Sinhalese against Muslims and asked Sinhalese to boycott Muslim businesses. In Kurunegala, those who purchased from Muslims shops were attacked with rotten eggs. Of course these were the ugly works of a few extremists turned violent extremists.

The government’s indifference and the indulgence of the police from taking offenders to task, drove terror into Muslims who spent sleepless nights.

The situation was so precarious that Ven. Galkande Dhammananda Thero, a lecturer at Kelaniya University told that; “political and social problems need to be solved amicably through dialogue which as monks we have repeatedly failed from time of the independence. Now we are again on the eve of another round of violence. I fear any time a ‘black July’ will repeat and this time it is against Muslims”.

These hooligans are suspected to have been trained by Israel’s intelligence agent Mossad and funded by Israel through Norway and their mission in New Delhi as part of its on-going global agenda against Islam and Muslims.

Time and again I wrote about the dangers of opening up the country to Israel and India’s RSS fascists. Most Sri Lankan are not aware that Israel is a cruel entity planted by British and French imperial powers in the Middle-East and later joined by the US and former Soviet Union. The tribal aims of the RSS and its deceptive front Bharathiya Janatha Party are to persecute the Muslim population in India and turn India into a Hindu raj.

Israel and RSS operate together to destabilize the region. When Sri Lanka opened the doors to these forces the two, as expected are working to split the unity of the Sinhalese and Muslims.

Muslims expected their parliamentarians to raise their problem. They refused fearing it would jeopardize their positions and perks. It was TNA parliamentarians R Sampanthan and Sumanthiran raised the agony the Muslim community.

In the midst, presidential election was called for 5 December 2015. Presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena promising to ensure Muslims’ safety, most Muslims voted for him. However dashing all hopes anti-Muslim violence continued under Maithri Ranil government with senseless attacks on Muslims in Gintota followed by Digana, Akurana and Amparai.

These attacks climaxed in the Easter Sunday massacre involving a few Muslim lunatics carefully screened and selected, funded by the plotters to put blame on the entire Muslim community, demonize and unleash violence against them. Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith has blamed foreign hands behind the Easter Sunday attacks executed  by a handful of radicalized Muslim youths.

Muslim community has nothing to do with this carnage. The authorities were informed of the bombings by several Muslim organizations and individuals providing names of the individuals involved. It was the then government that failed to act. Muslims paid the price. Innocent Muslims are continuing to be harassed and some persecuted.

Not only hospital security but even shops and super markets forced Muslim women to remove face covers and traditional shawls besides other atrocities. Security forces entered Mosques with their boots on marching in with snifer dogs.

If we are to go by  Professor Rajan Hoole’s book “Sri Lanka’s Easter Tragedy-WHEN THE DEEP STATE GETS OUT OF ITS DEPTH” the ultimate target is to demonize and deprive Muslims of their rights and turn them into a state of stateless people as the government did  in 1948 to estate workers of Indian origin in Sri Lanka.

And now comes the multi-faceted anti-Muslim campaign using Gnanasara Thero to demonize and terrorize Muslims. Recently he described Naleemiya Institute as preaching extremism and described great respected Islamic scholar Yousuf Qarlawi as preaching hatred.

These allegations were deliberate distortions aimed at poisoning Sinhalese minds. A statement issued by the Egyptian diplomatic mission in Colombo also described Yousef Qarlawi as a heat preacher and Islamic Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

This is the Zionist language spoken by the diplomatic mission of the regime in Egypt in Colombo, a regime which was installed in power, after toppling the first ever democratically elected government of President Muhammed Morsi .President Morsi’s government was forcibly crushed and toppled by the present Egyptian dictator. He was detained in solitary confinement under miserable conditions in prison where the peoples’ president died while the military might was used all throughout to subjugate the heroic people of Egypt who threw out earlier on Hosni Mubarak, another in the long line of Egyptian dictators, surviving on the US-Israeli military axis.

One should not forget the Israelis openly admitted that they got their shameless Saudi, Abu Dhabi and Kuwaiti stooges to spend eleven billion dollars to create artificial shortages of food and fuel to justify a military coup, killing thousands of innocent Morsi’s supporters, some inside mosques, to topple Morsi’s democratic government.

Thus one cannot expect any good word for Qarlawi or Hassanul Banna’s Muslim Brotherhood from plotters and killers and their diplomatic missions.

Meanwhile the current wave of anti-Muslim campaign to win Sinhala votes is certainly not in the interest of the country.

The island’s Muslim community, was described by former Chief Justice Sarah N Silva as the most peaceful of the three communities. Reiterating this former Chief of Staff, Admiral R. Wijeguneratne  said  during the meeting of Cabinet of ministers to discuss the arson attacks on the Muslim community in Teldeniya, Kandy and  Ampara by organised gang of Sinhalese extremists that the Muslims did not deserve to be treated in such a manner that” we are “alive today because of brave Muslim officers”.

Corrupt Muslim politicians and sell out self-declared religious leaders do not represent the Muslim community. Sandwiched between these two forces and the ongoing anti-Muslim campaign Muslim community remains helpless and voiceless.

They are very angry at racist politics and their media associating violence with Islam and Muslims. The refusal to allow Muslim corona victims a decent burial, despatching a high powered task force to Pottuvil where Muslims lands were forcefully surveyed in the presence of the armed forces have caused deep concern among Muslims.

Thus marginalising a community as a whole is not a healthy sign for the future of a nation which is multi-racial, multi religious, multi lingual and multi-cultural. Country is in deep economic trouble. Ethnic and racist politics will convert the country into a fools’ paradise!

It is also worthy to note that fighting against injustice and insults is an obligation on all Muslims. Under such circumstance continuing malicious campaign demonising them is certainly not going to serve the country.

Despite all the death, destruction and sufferings during the past few decades due to racist politics, average Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and all others wanted to live in peace and harmony as did for centuries.

Sri Lanka was a shining example for political and economic stability, communal harmony and peace during the time of independence in 1948. Unfortunately racist politics turned the island today into one of the most mismanaged countries facing political instability, collapsing economy and communities divided to the detriment of all.

The irony is this happens at a time when the corona virus which has devastated the world is also playing havoc with downturn in economy, people losing jobs, salary cuts and many such issues which have all the ingredients to devastate the deeply debt ridden country.

Isn’t it time to resist this re-introduced anti-Muslim campaign?

    Dear Mr Farook@
    thank you for your article.
    Not only Ghanasara, but all easy and cheap men close to Rajapakshes incite easy targets against Muslims and Tamils. This is more than what they have been doing in the Israel.
    .
    The world should focus their eyes on Rajapakshe racial politics.
    :
    JICA has suspended their funding to srilnaka. All other funding bodies will follow SOONER than LATER.
    .
    An another SOMALIA is in making, people s eyes are closed for the momeont. Media mafia has become that submissive to Rajapakshe Propganda tactis.
    :
    Match Fixing in 2011 – is an another FAIRY TALE /a myth to speeding up the continous misleading of the vulnerable in this country.
    :
    Kumara Sangakkara I dont think would be corrupted, he is coming from a good background. And his colleagues will reveal the truth of MAHINDANANDA – (former sports minister) in the future. I dont think people would not ignore if there had a been match fixing under MR rule, under SPORTs minister… alone former Minister to have the audacity to reveal it today, after 9 years, should be well connected with the mafia governed in that brutal govt. With this and that coming to light today, people will have to MARGINALIZE mahinda supporters from the active politics in the country. Then only, we can see a future free from RACISTS and EXTREMISTS.

    We, and/but my erudite father, (some say mental patients with an unlimited craving for validation.,love and at least appreciation) have been saying this for a long time. But we receive no attention, nothing, and that can’t be helped.

    Gnanassara is trying to revive the Sinhala people the same way Migettuwatte Gunananda thera did, and he is speaking the truth. So he should be listened to.

    Colonel Karuna the ex LTTE Commander boasted that he is more dangerous than Covid-19 as he killed 3000 Sinhala army on just a single day.

    It is amazing how the Sinhala politicians and even the Sangha are bending over backwards, falling on each other to defend Karuna.

    The Rajapakse clans and the cronies are packaging Karuna and selling him to the Sinhala masses as the saviour of the Sinhala Buddhist Sri Lanka with forth coming election in mind

    If the politicians of all colour can package and sell terrorist Karuna to the Sinhala masses surely they can sell a unified Sri Lanka to the Sinhala masses?

      Rajash,
      Karuna did not go against LTTE and support Sinhalayo because he loves Sinhala Buddhists but because they were treated as second class LTTE carders from the East by Yapanaya LTTE carders. They also did not want North and East merged and create a separate State that will be controlled by Malabar Vellala Tamils in Yapanaya. LTTE Dalits fought the war for Vellala Tamils.

    Muslims are using an alternative underground banking system which is designed to avoid paying taxes. This why you find Yemeni, Egyptian,
    Pakistani businesses all over New York and I suspect Islamic businesses in every major western city. This system exists in Sri Lanka and has helped muslims spread their tentacles. The ministry of finance, inland revenue service, CID and bank of ceylon have to ruthlessly prosecute. Errant Muslims who have fleeced the government since 1947.. Muslims like the Jews believe that its within their religion to exploit other people. Get rid all Muslim banks in the country. Force these people to bank with local banks.

      I know of Islamic banking practiced by a few banks. But know of no underground Muslim bank.
      If ‘Westham’ is aware of any, W should name it so that as W wants the “ministry of finance, inland revenue service, CID and bank of ceylon have to ruthlessly prosecute”
      BTW
      Bank of Ceylon is a company and cannot prosecute anyone other than those directly hurting its interests.
      The CID can investigate, but needs clues which our super-detective could kindly provide.

      westham,
      Hezbollah brought in 3000 Million Rs to his bank, said to be used in Sharia University, which was building wise already complete. Dump CB didn’t know that transaction. But the pathetic is after some CIDs spotted it, CB could not explain how did transfer took place, even with the help of Arabian banks. All the credits in the world must have a simultaneous debit; that is why the bank’s & companies’ credits are recorded with double entry system. Come on, what happened then? Hezbollah withdraw the money. CB could not do anything to trace it because by that time country’s financial laws were changed so anybody can bring any amount (Retrospective). Was this one time only game? Cannot be. When Mahendran used a hanky panky method of bond issuing, then only it came to light that 100 times of that money already had been issued by previous government, though the same traders.

    BBS was sponsored by former defence secretary under Mahinda Rajapaksa government. Gnanarasa is the voice shouting for his masters. It is not only Gnanarasa but Hisbullah and some other Muslims do the same for their own benefit. Rajapakse Family and Ranil (JR Jeyawardena Family) are the two major Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalists use Buddhism for their personal benefits. They never allow this country to develop or in peace. JRJ marched to Kandy Daladha, Mahinda marched from Daladha for what? Take blood. Up to 2009 Tamils Blood. From 2009 Muslims blood but from 1970 Sinhala Blood. Do they have a exit policy from blood. No. That is their wealth.

    It is very unfortunate that racial issues have been exchanged freely in the media which is not healthy for the country. Historical blunders had been done aftermath of the independence where priorities got mixed up by the leaders. Sri Lanka was wealthy with well fortified administration when the British government handed over the country. Then leaders diverted their focus neglecting national priorities which were paramount importance. Unity, sustaining the wealth and developing country’s economy should have been the priority. But unfortunately the leaders of the political parties played racial politics that diverted the focus from sustainable economic development and other vital issues. According to present situation no one in this country is happy and are clueless of the future.

    There was much protesting some weeks ago , when a brilliant young lawyer was arrested for his alleged involvement in groups associated with the Easter carnage.

    Educated at the Mount Lavinia school, Law College Colombo , and UCL , he certainly did not have the profile of one who would be even distantly connected to mass murderers .Recent revelations at the commission of inquiry however , have raised quite a few eyebrows .

    To his credit, the clergyman Mr. Farook writes about , appears to attend the hearings well prepared , with armloads of files to substantiate his claims. The silence of those who very vociferously opposed the arrest of the lawyer at the time citing blatant racism however, is quite deafening .

    It must be either election time, or some much needed distraction, for the crooks in power. They bring out the useful idiot wearing saffron robes, to attack innocent people of another religion, to terrorize and demonize them. We are now accustomed to the usual Rajapaksa tactics, it is almost predictable now.

    Latheef Farook. “It is common knowledge that during the ethnic war Muslims also suffered only because they refused to support the LTTE …”

    I don’t think Muslims suffered any more than Sinhalese or Tamils.

    At the time Muslims were in bed with Sinhala politicians with a sense of cock a hoop. They did not realise that the Sinhala politicians were sharing the bed to keep the Muslims away from joining the LTTE. After defeating the LTTE the Sinhala politicians are now turning their guns on the Muslims

    Had the Muslims joined hand with LTTE at that time it would have been a different story

      “Had the Muslims joined hand with LTTE at that time it would have been a different story”

      You sound like another uninformed ignorant ….. Tamil Nationalist brown Sahib living in the UK. Please refer to: Muslim Maaveerar of the Tamil Struggle, 22 November 2016.
      https://www.tamilguardian.com/content/muslim-maaveerar-tamil-struggle

      I believe the Muslims had their share of Maaveerars about 34 of them, almost all the rest of the active Muslim members of LTTE were forced to leave immediately after the expulsion (Ethnic Cleansing) of Innocent Muslims from the North enmasse, followed by the Mosque attacks in the East, and the massacre of 600 surrendered Policemen (most were Muslims), … When the Muslims were evicted they prevented from taking their valuables and cash including jewellery. Cash, stock in Muslim owned shops, ……. were confesticated by the Psychopath’s lieutenants.

      Would you still expect the Muslims to join hands with LTTE?

          So were a number of Tamils.
          Why didn’t your superhero Psycho VP cleansed northern province of Tamils and confusticate their valuables and cash?

          By the the way if you didn’t know, it was the Psycho VP who first became an informant, “betrayed” Kuttimani, Thangadurai and Jegan, according to their legal counsels who acted for them, while they were alive, …. . Then of course remember how the Psychopath destroyed Tamils, belonging to other groups ……………..helping the Sinhala/Buddhists, if that was not betrayal then what is? Remember the Psychopath was bribed by Premadasa and Mahinda.

              Tamils too acted as informants.
              Tamils were not evicted from the North.
              Even if the Muslims betrayed VP/LTTE why did the psycho refused them permission to carry their valuables and cash with them to the south?
              I find only the stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese make strenuous efforts to justify their share of war crimes.

    When minority politicians were bragging that they are the ‘King Makers’, they should have thought how the majority Sinhalayo who are the Native people in this country feel. Sinhalayo saw the damage done to this country by ‘Yahapalana’ Government that survived with the support from MPs of minority communities. Also Sinhalayo observed how and why Sinhala politicians had to dance according to the tune of minorities and how minorities used that opportunity to their advantage since the time of Independence. These things might have prompted Ven. Ghnanasara to make such a statement.

    “…he would dissolve his organisation Bodu Bala Sena as it has achieved its target of setting up a Sinhala Buddhist government without minority support.”

      Dear EE

      I agree with the sentiments and the logics in what you say……..however I need to highlight something very important to you if I may
      (1) The FP/TULF responsible for the carnage who created all the armed goops through thuggery/hate speeches/Sunthenthiran news paper is a historically fact.
      (2) They connived with Tamil Nadu goons to poison our children and arm them.
      (3) The TM breeding program did not spare any lives but used Mother Lankan children to do the dirty work for their theft of SL resources. They never cared about the plantation workers nor were they in a position to care about anyone apart from steeling anything and everything to feed the every so m ore mouths. Then the Indian government used opportunity to silence/please the TN s*** challenging the united India concept by continue to divide the SL Tamil groups and made them kill each other and any SL politicians stood for the united/secure/strong/sovereign SL at the same time.
      (4) Then came the LTTE “lessons learned” who distanced themselves from the FP/TULF/Indian folly.
      (5) Instead of joining hands with the GOSL they made the same blunders as we know today.

        1. FP/TULF has its share of the blame. But what alternative did the SLFP or UNP hold out to the Tamils?
        2. Do you take Tamilnadu goons seriously? It was if at all the Indian establishment under Indira G who did it, partly to put JRJ in his place.
        3. There was no TM breeding a such. It became the LTTE’s brand of Jihad as it started losing senior cadre in battle or otherwise. (Please do not give credit to TN politicians for motivating Indian policy makers to sow division among SL Tamil militants. Divide and dominate was always part of the programme. The LTTE was too alert to the plan and sought MGR’s shelter. It helped to an extent as MGR was a Congress ally at the time. Tamil nationalists of India do not seriously desire secession, certainly since 1963. They will even oppose the right of Kashmir to self determination.
        4. I agree that this was typical TNA opportunism, as it did not self-criticize itself for its past of doing the LTTE’s bidding.
        5. Did any GOSL seriously stretch out a hand of friendship? Using India as middleman had become a habit with the TULF/TNA and there lay a problem (not ‘the’ problem).

            In addition it is the FP/TULF produced the PLOITE/TELO/LTTE and many more….and used them to kill all their oppose nets in Jaffna. All these foreign trained children started killing each other and fellow SL Lankans too until 2009.

            SL armed forces have to take the full brunt of this until 2009. They also protect/use the TULF/TELP/PLOTE for the rest of the battle to come until 2009.

            Now the same joint together and formed TNA want to screw us down further including the armed forces who protected them. The questions who are these people? where are they from? and who’s interest are they protecting?? it may be GOSL do not want to hold them accountable but we the Tamils who never had nothing to do with these people ever who are proud Tamils and Sri Lankans want their country back??

              Strictly, Anandasangary was the father of the TNA.
              Thanks to an obliging Chandrika B government, he took with him the name of the TULF by lawfully rejecting the move by his TULF partners to remove him as president, mainly to please the LTTE.
              He thus made it necessary for the FP and TULF partners (excluding him) to form the electoral alliance under a new name. The TNA (which was under obligation to the LTTE) was resented and repeatedly humiliated by Delhi, and the Prime Minister’s office had no time for them.
              Patching up stared only after the TNA denounced the LTTE after its defeat.

        Sorry the following got missed out earlier

        (6) the Indians/FP/TULF now the TNA (PLOTE/TELP) who did the killings of the “united politicians” of Jaffna are now sitting in the parliament??
        So the generalisation of Muslims/Tamils are never applicable for any collective revenge/punishment……..would that be a fair comment from me?? was their all along know how FP did this crime on our Nation

          Dear EE Furthermore and for that reason alone that is not to accuse the innocence of the crime they never committed I have never thought/nor addressed the Sinhalese as this and that…..the Sinhalese/Tamils/Muslims are all my Brothers and Sisters. Just as I also think Indi should be united Country where all their citizens are empowered to have a greater future too.

          If I want to see a better world I need to walk the talk……and my eyes never see people in narratives others want us to see them but look at it from outside the bubble….just as my Father did and I consider people like that as the first Soldiers (one of several other) to die serving our Nation.

            The folks who use language like Racist Sinhala Buddhists/Rapist Army/traitors/turncoats/Muslim this and that/Tamil this and that are all in the same category of “Crime Against Humanity” hence we had this journey of killing without a reason since 1970-2009.

            They could well be the people from foreign lands with vested interest to further divide us…..so please do not fall into the trap. Believe me I know people who played and used Jaffna children to destabilise the Country whilst they profited from both GOSL and the Diaspora……and they also from India/Malaysia/Singapore of Tamil heritage too.

            That is why Duarriap’s and Thiagarajah’s died when the FP/TULF did not have a cause but created one to use our children for their ends. That is why Mother Lankan Children have died (Sinhala/Tamil/Muslim/Christian…) ever since too.

The first and last action of the Northern Provincial Council under Hon Judge was to remove my Fathers name from a colleague he help build tells you a greater conspiracy at work here..is called covering the tracks..that is why we need to remove the Indian Embassy from Jaffna not in anger but this has no place in Jaffna but in Colombo next to the American Embassy opposite our Presidents home..

                we need to complete the following check list and vet all the Northern/Eastern MP’s…FP/TULF party representation..who attended the funerals of the Tamils killed by the Indian trained Tamil children, What did Suthenthiran paper write about the killings, what these parliamentarians said in each stage speaches from 1970’s, what did India do when all these were happenings in Jaffna, what the Indian papers wrote about the events…….all these have to form part of the Truth and Reconciliation process…..a process to bring justice to the victims (Tamils/Sinhalese/Muslims/Christians..). by the perpetrators. Not Tamils Muslims, Sinhalese vs Tamils and Muslims vs Sinhalese.

                We need to make a clean break from this narratives and discussions and continuing is the Crime Against Humanity. We need to ban parties with Language and Religious names period. We did not pick up a gun and kill the killers because we want to comply to the law…..we asked the armed forces to do the sacrifice/uphold the law.

        Tamils like their Sinhala counterparts believe they are much much smarter than all other people in this world, only second to Jews.

        Both these stupid people though claim to be smart couldn’t reach a solution for 72 years conflict with win win situation for all. Think about the destruction in terms of life and material on all sides, forgone development, mounting hatred, ……. …

        “Instead of joining hands with the GOSL they made the same blunders as we know today.”

        Could you describe the nature of GOSL that ruled this island for the past 72 years. Do you seriously believe GOSL ever wanted a secular democratic nation building process in place?

          Dear NV

          After the 1977 folly/debacle of separatism we were on a path of no return and TULF got they wanted which is the killing field of innocent Tamils in 1977 riots. I lost several neighbours to this misery they were businessmen/government servants etc. There was A VERY NARROW WINDOW of opportunity granted to rectify matter in the form of “Development Council Elections” in 1981. Even this was distributed by the same folly now on a different blood thrust arena…which was only going to end in the way it did……

          There was very many fundamental mistakes regard to the existence of the FP/TULF in the first place….they do not belong to SL problems as they can only remain a problem and never be part of any answers through their own make up/thinking. Which we see today…nothing changed….lessons learned??

            What GOSL suppose to do them in 1970 onwards pls??…….we just needed to develop the Nation solve problem one by one…… because FP/TULF ask something does not mean GOSL owe them anything?? This is different from justice for all concept and using democracy to work to a solution that is to develop a Nation or just as FP/TULD did that is to tell the Tamil people you, listen or be killed??

            I am a believer in One Sri Lanka for a sustainable futuristic solution as based on my living and risk analysis this is what it is a very bad way to solve any problems?? Problems we all had in the post Independent SL?? There we needed to study/work hard/go through few aggravations but diversify in how we all survive?? give and take etc.

            After 1977 we were on such a downhill path no one will sit with us for a discussion unless they are forced to do so?? is this what we wanted/needed to do looking back where we were as people in 1970??

    This writer has been representing the “Two headed Muslim” political group for a long time. He has written many articles against the Sinhala Buddhists including Gnanasara thero many times in the past. This article is no different. When Latheef and other Hyenas pretending to be Sheep actually represent one head of two headed monster;the other head is represented by Rishard, Hakim, Hisbulla, Asad Sali, Shihab and Rhuman and many other ethnocentric politicians. Gnanasara Thero spoke of the danger faced by our nation and particularly the Sinhala Buddhists. Many readers have used demeaning words and unspeakable language to attack the actions of Gnanasara Thero under different guises(including pretend to be Sinhala Buddhists). All of them SHOULD realize,if it is not for the Sinhala Buddhists, there (was , is, ) or will never be a country or a nation known as Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka and Sinhala Buddhists are inseparable irrespective of various media or violent campaigns carried out by the two headed monster.

      Vipuli,
      Whoever you would be -from what you write above I have the guess you are no better to any common ” so called sinhala buddhists” today. May I ask you, dont you think that the kind of portions exist in every religion in the country today ? knowing this reality, why to attack on the non-buddhagama followers ? Govts have missed lots on the law and order areas, not being strict enough with rules and regulations. In my days in SL, in 80ties, I never showed a muslim woman wearing a niqub. With srilanken slavery to Middle east countries being neglected by politicians, this has now become a part of their tradition. As a country who fought a brutal civil war that went upto 3 decades, should have a proper law and order system not allowing any kind of relgious adherents be go beyond the dress codes fo the nation.
      And in the same manner, there are buddhagama monks today, they dont care much about the monk hook, but hidden behind the SIVURA, they live up their hidden propencities. This is even worst than that of the ill behaviours of some non-buddhagama followers.
      .
      To be contd.

        Just imagine the manner how our CHIEF priest Kelaniya Rajamaha Viharaya behaves yet today misleading whole lot of buddhagama followers ?
        :
        Why you guys dont seem to rise up against the kind of culprits hidden behind the monk’s costumes but doing the other way around towards the promotion of myths rather than the facts about “relics”:
        :
        In my schooling days in 80ties, going to worship ” relics” was held as very respectful event in buddhist # life, but the monks of Kelaniya Temple, the manner he utters the scripts of biased politicians# agenda make us very confusing. The kind of men hidden behind the SIVURU should also be subjected to due punishments regardless of their fake monkhood or not ?
        .
        I myself spoke to the guards of the Kelaniya temple during my last visit to the country (Feb 2020) and collected myself all truths about the crowds rushed to the temple shortly before the last Presidential Election – what revealed to me was – that was 0.5 million in numbers. All these worshippers thought it was the real ” relics” reported to be brought by a naked water snake from the bottom of the river to the man -. who is now found to have been bound with Nayaka Thero for such a long time. The very same man was proved to be a FACE book freak in accordance with my info.

    “It is common knowledge that during the ethnic war Muslims also suffered only because they refused to support the LTTE can for the division of the country. The entire Muslim population in the North and North East were kicked out within hours by the LTTE .Their belongings were looted and they ended up in refugee camps only with Rs 150. In the East, Muslims were massacred in mosques, their lands grabbed and livelihood deprived by the LTTE.”

    Bloody Humbug!!!!
    While Sinhala Buddhists and Tamil Hidus were killing each other, your fellow Muslims were enjoying the life to the fullest extent. Moving into Sinhala villages and cities and busy in procreating at a rate never witnessed in the history of Sri Lanka. Your numbers went up from 6% of the total population to 11% during the period of 30 years. Tell us how many Muslims died or sacrificed to save our country Sri Lanka. You are abusing the freedom and safety achieved by Sinhala Buddhists. They made the ultimate sacrifice to give the freedom including media freedom. Where were you when your fellow Muslims were desecrating our scared religious places including; Muhudu Maha Viharaya, Devenagala Temple, Kuragala, Surrounding area of Dalada Maligawa. Hiding behind vile Sinhala politicians you have carried out a very effective campaign against Buddhist Monks. Sorry fellow; we have had enough of your fabricated stories.

    Whilst the current persecution of the island’s Muslims have to be condemned , the Muslims are also no innocents and peaceful , like may of these Muslims columnists are now trying to whitewash and portray . They fully participated with the Sinhalese in the Eelam Tamil genocide from the word go. Especially in the east and south of the island. The Sri Lankan Muslims are ethnic immigrant Indian Tamil by origin , a little bit of Arab. North Indian , Afghan or other Western Asian amongst a few hundred elite families , still does not make them or these families anything else but Tamil. However in the name of their religion and an imagined concocted exclusive Arab/Western Asian origin fairy tale and now also increasingly and pathetically Arabising themselves , they justified their backstabbing and genocidal actions against their fellow non Muslim Tamils in the island . From the time of independence they had constantly sided with the Sinhalese and were their junior partners in the Eelam Tamil marginalization and genocide. In doing so they had immensely benefited at the expense of the Tamils. It was a Muslim minister who introduced standardization to deliberately deny Tamils higher education and gainful employment.

      In the south Muslim mobs organized by powerful Muslim politicians/businessmen many of recent Tamil Nadu ancestry were seen looting , burning, killing, raping Tamils their homes and businesses. In the Tamil east , Muslim home guards heavily armed by the Sri Lankan armed forces were killing raping , looting Tamil Hindu villages and destroying Hindu temples. Especially in Amparai . More than a 100000 Tamils were ethnically cleansed and are still not allowed to return in the east . Now all these ancient Tamil Hindu villages have been converted to Islamic villages. These South Indian Tamil Muslims only arrived in the east as refugees a few centuries ago and now are trying to claim the east from the indigenous Hindu Tamils who took pity on them and gave them refuge , when no one else wanted them. The Portuguese and Dutch wanted to kill them off and the Sinhalese did not want them in their areas. They tried to start the same thing in the north , where they are only a microscopic minority but were caught on time and were chased out. The truth is the LTTE never did anything to them until they started their games. After May 2009 , thinking they the Tamils now vanquished , weak and have to international support , they were making all sorts of claims to the ancient Tamil east and were trying to steal it with Sinhalese and certain Islamic nations( who were finding them) help from the Tamils .

        A people who came to the Tamil east begging for their lives and a place to stay when they had nowhere else to go and no one wanted them . The Sinhalese , their original homeland in South India . Now making all sorts of claims and trying to steal it from the very same people who gave them refuge , land and even women to start families. Even the during the Easter carnage they deliberately targeted the Christian Tamils and not the Sinhalese. Now crying and stating unfair , as their Sinhalese masters and co partners in the Eelam Tamil genocide have turned on them. All their hopes and dreams of stealing everything from the Tamils have shattered. A people who Tamil but hate Tamils in the name of their religion

    Lots of issues –
    BBS leader may not be the saint monk but we didn’t see ACJU making a clamoring to identify ZaharanH as a issue. BBS leader did 2-3 before the attack. He message was valid.
    ACJU was feeding milk to snakes inside the sarong and when the snake hit Christian churches – sheepishly they are saying K’kudi muslims complained. The rest of Sri lanka are disappointed with the Muslim community for allowing this to happen. They allowed the wahabisam to creep in and women to wear niqab and changed gradually to try and bring sharia.
    The whole country was not betrayed by Zaharan but muslim leaders at large for letting this happen. We allowed u freedom due to our peaceful nature but you want to make eastern province a muslim nation and spread ur religon by explosion of populations and have Sharia law
    Adding salt to wounds ACJU spokesman came and said swords are to save the daughters. The remainder of country then should carry 9mm to save their daughters? the swords at mosques were the last straw.
    The Majority of Muslim men are against MMDA to increase age of girls marring – Zaharan’s wife was a 14 year old girl !!!!!?

    Rohan25,
    What you have written shows your lack of knowledge about the history of Sinhale which is the Land of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo.
    Both Demala and Muslim people are occupying land in the North and East where Sinhalayo lived and their Kingdoms Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa existed. Demala invaders from Hindusthan who invaded this country 52 times massacred Sinhalayo who lived in the North and East of the country and forced Sinhalayo to abandon their Kingdoms and retreat to safer areas. There were few Demala people in the North who were the remnants of invaders. A large majority of Demala people who live in the North are the descendants of Dravida laborers brought by Portuguese and Dutch to work in their tobacco plantations in Yapanaya. There are no ‘Indigenous Tamils’ as some Demala people claim.

    A large majority of Muslims who live in Sinhale are the descendants of refugees from Hindusthan who lived in the Western coastal belt and saved by Sinhala Buddhists on the request from King Senerath when they faced persecution by Portuguese. Sinhala Buddhists allowed them to settle down in interior parts of the country among Sinhalayo. Some Muslims were settled in the East which was a part of Sinhala Kingdom.

      Senile racist Blind Eagle it is you who is now living the good life in Australia , thanks to your Meenachahi and her family , is an ignorant like most Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Muslims . The former have delusions that they are Aryans and the latter brainwashed by their crafty , self serving , selfish , power hungry politicians and elite to think that they are all purely descended from ancient Arab traders who came to the shores of this island and South India. Most probably both these people are either very stupid or so brainwashed and deluded to realize they have been taken for a ride by their leaders , or if they realize the truth within their hearts, still cannot come to terms with it and want to be either a pathetic Aryan or Arab wannabe. Don’t they have a mirror to see who they really are and the map of Dravidian South India written all over their faces, including the author of this pathetic article. Even DNA has proven that there is very little Aryan or Arab amongst the Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Muslims. Yet both these people keep on blindly believing in these myths and create problems.

        The Muslims of Sri Lanka when they migrated to the island from their South India , largely lived along the North west coast that from Puttalam to Chilaw that was part of the Tamil Jaffna kingdom. Not in any Sinhalese parts The east coast was never part of the Kandyan kingdom and Sinhalese hardly lived there . The Sinhalese only arrived in the east after independence . Deliberately settled by the Sinhalese state to alter the demography of the east and reduce the Tamils , into a voiceless minority in their own land. Everything about the east , its ancient history , culture , place names , ruins m is Tamil Hindu or Tamil Buddhist in some cases . Nothing Sinhalese or Muslim. Now history is deliberately being altered by Sinhalese racists and Islamic fanatics, as they think they can do so and get away with it. The northern parts of the eastern province Trincomallee and large parts of the Batticaloa kingdom were part of the Tamil Jaffna kingdom and the king of Jaffan gave port access to the land locked Kandyan kingdom . The Kingdom of Jaffna and Kandy had marriage alliances. Both of king Senrath’s sons were married to the king of Jaffna’s daughters. The southern parts of the Tamil east from time to time came under the loose control of the Tamil /Sinhalese kings of Kandy but were always ruled by the Tamil Vanniar or Vannimai chiefs.

          Sinhalese are not native they are largely descended from Indian Tamils , with some NE Indian immigrant input. Half the present day Sinhalese population are purely descended from South Indian( Tamil low castes) who were imported in to the island from what is present day Tamil Nadu and then largely Tamil Kerala , first by the Portuguese and then by the Dutch to do menial service work and to work as indentured labour in he huge Southern spice estates. They were settled along the western and southern littorals and over the centuries their descendants converted to Buddhism and Catholicism and took on a Sinhalese identity. It is these recently migrated Sinhalised descendants of these low caste South Indian Tamils who made the Sinhalese a huge majority in the island in the last few centuries. Prior to that the Sinhalese and Tamils were more or less in equal numbers, The Sinhalese slightly more. The Sinhalese language is a mixture or Tamil , Pali and Sanskrit out these three only Tamil belongs to the region , the other two to the plains of North India and in the case of Sanskrit to the steppes of Central Asia/Eastern Europe, Nothing native, only in your frustrated wet dreams.

            When the Kingdom of Jaffna fell the Portuguese , they started to persecute these largely South Indian origin Tamil Muslims and some Arabs and half castes , whom the Portuguese derogatively called ” Moors” after the Moors who ruled the Iberian peninsular for a 1000 years and were only recently chased out of Southern Europe by Queen Isobella and her king back to North Africa. The Portuguese hated the Muslims and when they used the term ” Moor” it was used very derogatively and had nothing to with the racial origin but denoted their religion. They used this derogative term for all the Muslims they encountered, not just these Tamil Dravidian Sri Lankan Muslim converts from South India, who have opportunistically used this term to claim an Arab origin. The Portuguese started to persecute the Muslims as 1) They hated all Muslims. 2) The trade was in their hands 3) They refused to convert to Catholicism . The small amount of Arabs who were there immediately fled to Gulf , as soon as the persecution started, It was only the Tamil Muslims and small band of Arab/Tamil half castes , who first fled to the neighboring Kandyan Sinhalese lands. The Sinhalese at first reluctantly accepted them , however when more and more of them started to arrive, they got alarmed and did not want them and started to kill and persecute them.

              In desperation King Senarath asked the Tamil Vannimai chieftains in the east if they can accept and settle these ethnic Tamil Muslims , who are fleeing Portuguese killing and persecution along the north west Tamil coast , in the Tamil lands in the east. They accepted and settled them, away from the native Tamil Hindu villages. However gave these Muslim Tamil men , local Tamil Hindu Mukkuva women to marry settle and start a family, as many of these Muslim refugees , like in the west were largely young or able men , as the old, infirm , women and children either died or got killed by the Portuguese. Stop distorting the truth . The Sinhalese never wanted them , They tolerated them to a certain limit but when more arrived killed them . It was the Tamils who accepted them and gave them refuge as fellow Tamils and now they repay this with treachery ,backstabbing and trying to steal Eelam Tamil lands , all in the name of Islam, Wahhabism and a fake Arab origin.

          To these eastern Tamils . this was not an issue , as they considered these Tamil/Sinhalese kings of Kandy who were of Pandian origin and later of Naicker origin as Tamil Hindus. The king spoke and dealt with them in Tamil and patronized the Saivism in their areas.

            For you r information it was not only Muslim Tamils but even many Hindu Tamils living along the north western coast fled to Tamil east , as they did not want to be forcibly converted to the Catholic religion. They were largely from the Kurrukula Karaiyar clans eg, Kurukulasooriar , Varanakulasooriar Etc,. When they fled they took the Kurukula Kariar flag and emblems and fled . They largely settled in the Manampitiya area . Even now so called Sinhalese Karawe(Karaiyar) clans , especially the Kurukula clans , use and proudly display these Kurukula Karaiyar flags that their kin ,clansmen took and fled to the east. The ones who fled to the east have retained their ancient Hindu Tamil identity and the ones who remained behind have all become Sinhalese Catholics now some Buddhist . Many Sinhalese do not know this history or truth. Please do not display your ignorance.

      Shudras is not a Tamil word. The Current Tamils community is only from South India, does not come into any Varna class. Velir is not in Varna class. Tamils are not Shudras just because they were defeated by Arias in Indus valley. If that is correct Sinhalese are Aryan Brahmins is also correct. Current Tamils are Shudras because they lived far away from the society which was won in war and Aranazied. This is similar to the Muslims infidels’ theory. All infidels are only one class, that is people Allah don’t wanted. Thiruvalluvar was a Brahmin, Tamil. ThirunanaSampathar was a Brahmin Tamil. Thirunavukkarasar was Kshatriya, but Tamil.

    Latheef Farook has started again with a lot of lies and fabrications to portray Muslims as the victims of certain incidents. There were a few incidents that took place during the recent past initiated entirely by the Muslims. In the Aluthgama incident, a Muslim youth manhandled a Buddhist priest triggering communal clashes. In Gintota too a similar incident occurred where a Sinhala youth was attacked though he had not done anything to provoke anybody. LF speaks of an incident in Digana and Theldeniya. The people really suffered were the Sinhalese, whose properties were attacked by Muslim thugs. LF does not mention about the Mawanella incident where Buddhist statues were destroyed by Islamic extremists. If such an incident took place in a Muslim majority country, the minority community would have faced unimaginable consequences. The Buddhist majority did not go on a rampage.
    He unfairly blames Gnansara Thera as having incited communal disharmony through hate speech. This is a blatant lie. In his speeches, he acknowledges that a majority of the Muslims are peace-loving and have rejected extremism. Friction between communities is one created by extreme groups like Wahiibes which is a known fact the world over.
    LF also mentions attacks on mosques. In Dambulla, in the heart of the Buddhist sacred land, they were trying to erect an unauthorized building encroaching on the temple land.

    The way the Muslim population explodes there is not going to be any land space available in the country. Hence they most fraudulently occupy state and temple lands most of the time preparing bogus land deeds. Many places of archaeological value, the evidence remaining in this country to portray the proud and flourishing civilization of the past of the Sinhalese is systematically being destroyed by these extremists. This has led to conflict between ethnicities. It is natural that the Sinhalese have to rise up against this merciless destruction of their heritage. Latheef Farouk has ignored this fact and tries to portraySinhalese as the offenders, which is not the case.
