Gubernatorial & Ministerial Resignations, Monks & Law

By Ameer Ali

Dr. Ameer Ali

The resignation en masse of two Muslim governors and all Muslim ministers and deputies is an unprecedented political act in the history of Sri Lankan democracy and Muslim politics. If they had not relinquished their privileges yet, as some reports suggest, and in accordance with the official requirement of such resignations, they should do it immediately to make their action above board. The only acceptable reason for the resignation was to prevent a highly probable island-wide anti-Muslim riot sparked by one monk who was fasting unto death, and another whipping up anti-Muslim fervour, until two Muslim provincial governors and a Muslim minister removed from their positions. Now, another group of high priests have requested those ministers to resume duties and serve the nation. In between the monks and the ministers the laws of the country seem to have gone on holiday.   

To start with, if the Muslim ministers and governors were seriously concerned about the safety and welfare of their community, they should have resigned immediately after the Alutgama riots during the former regime or Digana under the current one. One of the ministers who has resigned now was the Minister of Justice in the previous regime. Why didn’t he and his colleagues resign then and why did they resign now needs credible answers. In the previous regime, no Muslim minister or governor was accused of any illegal or corrupt behaviour. Now three of them are facing allegations. This difference adds substance to the view from certain quarters that all Muslim powerholders are trying to protect the alleged three. 

Be that as it may, allegations are not proven facts for action. Those allegations must be backed by solid evidence and should be produced before the courts so that legal proceedings can begin and the accused face trial. Instead, if monks are going to decide who is innocent and who is guilty, why have laws, courts and judges? If the Mahanayakas are so concerned about the possibility of foreign interference and economic deterioration of the country, why didn’t they publicly condemn the action of a few among them who were hell bent in causing mayhem without any care for the economy? In the interest of the nation and Buddhism the Mahanayakas must cleanse the Sangha by removing the undesirable ones. Let us not forget that this country was the home of such Buddhist luminaries like Ven. Velivita Saranakara Thero, Ven. Walpola Rahula Thero and Ven. Maduluwawe Sobitha Thero, just to name a few. There are several like them even now. They should come out and speak in public to save this nation from descending to kakistocracy.       

No one should be above the law, including the President. If the resigned were to resume duties now, just because the prelates have asked them to do so, the original argument by one of the ministers that they did not want to remain in office to be accused of impeding with any investigation into the allegations loses its credibility. They have given a time limit of one month and want the CID to conduct the investigation. That is a valuable suggestion. If the CID found credible evidence against any one or more of them, they should be brought before the law and be judged and punished if found guilty. 

Recently and under the yahapalana government law enforcement has become a joke. Galagoda Atte Gnanasara for example was found guilty of contempt of court and was sentenced to prison. A President, who should have known better because he was a Gamarala once, seems to have no idea about the gravity of Gnanasara’s offence. The President pardons and releases the monk without asking for any advice from the judiciary. Just three days after the release that very monk took to the street to spit out his racist venom, and threatened to bring down the regime unless his demands were met. Similarly, the government declared emergency and even imposed curfew to control communal violence, but that emergency appears to have no power to control saffron-clad firebrands instigating mass protest and violence? Also, how does one explain the freedom for thugs to roam around during curfew hours, looting business premises and destroying properties? Some of them were arrested of course, but they have been released without any trial. Does one need any more instances to show how derelict the situation of law and order in the country at the moment?

If the minsters and deputies who have resigned want something positive to happen as a result of their action they should give up the ministerial privileges, remain in the back bench and allow the law to takes its course. Let that be their lasting contribution to the independence of judiciary in this country.

    In this complicated issue, there is a hidden agenda with Hisbullah (Vide Hisbullah’s speech in 2008 arousing Islamic feeling more or less on communal line) which is eventually established with links relating to Zaharan;s National Thowheed Jamaath. State Vehicles belonging to Rishard Badurdeen have been frequently visiting Zaharan’s house and Zaharan’s meeting with Hisbullah. Will any one think that the bombings that took place at the Churches and hotels are without the knowledge of Rishard Badurdeen, Hisbullah and Asath Ali. Will any one deny that these Muslim politicians had links with the doctors at Kurunegala and Kandy who were engaged in sterilization. Moreover, there are instances where Muslims have been assistant to the Hindu priests and mixed contraceptive pills in the Panchamirtham at Trincomalee and Jaffna. Their names were Mohamed Buhary who was arrested and the other was Mohamed Shiraj who has escaped. Now a Muslim woman at Karaitivu was caught mixing contraceptive pills while making string hoppers as a result children after eating became unconscious, which was revealed after testing.
    Moreover, Muslim politicians were against the amalgamation of North-East Provinces, fearing it would be a checkmate for terrorist activities. Sinhalese political leaders lacked farsightedness and Mahinda Rajapakse wanted to show that India cannot dictate Sri Lanka in amalgamating the two Provinces without realizing the dangers of Islamic terrorism. Rauff Hakim wanted a separate Administrative Unit. Lack of farsightedness of Sinhalese politicians facilitated the hidden agenda of the Muslim politicians to have a separate Islamic Province with no-go-zones and a Sharia University in the long run, all of which would have facilitated the ISIS. Had this been allowed, this would have been a threat to the unity of Sri Lanka and also a threat to India and the Western democratic countries. On the whole, the result of evil plans perpetrated by Maithripala Srisena played havoc claiming destruction of lives and properties.

      The so-called Mahanayakes in their statement have inter alia stated that individual Muslim politicians who are accused of wrongdoing should prove their innocence. Is this not the height of ignorance? Is there not even one Mahanayaka who is aware that it is the accuser who has to prove guilt, and not the accused his innocence? Are uneducated feudalist intellectual dwarves like these fit to be interpreters of the Buddha’s noble doctrines? And they yet have the gall to demand that the state should listen to their “advice”. Added to that we have the convicted child molester Pahalagama Somaratana issuing Fatwas on Politicians. With religious leaders like these, who needs terrorists?

        Why cant mahanayakas say that politicians who are tainted with terrorism should resign or come clean? Why cant they ask the government to investigate these things? Is only the NGO brigade in SL capable of asking to sack ministers when they are not to their liking, like in Wijeydasa Rajapaksa’s case? Or in Marapana’s case?

        “And they yet have the gall to demand that the state should listen to their “advice”.

        Don’t forget there is tough competition among various actors in this island trying very hard to capture power. Saffronistas want theocracy, Sinhala/Buddhist want an autocracy, crooks want a Kleptocracy, Gota and his war criminal would love a Stratocracy, ……………….. It appears People do not know what to demand. Only Mangala believes in Democracy.

      So, your chance to prove it now – as all those MPs and governors are no longer in power. Let’s come out of narrow, self-centered mind-set and let law and order to do the job. Take them to court if you have evidence.

      Let’s get civilised, just like those Muslim MPs resigned in order for law and order to prevail and for Sri Lanka.

        When Tamils including some politicians were arrested with terrorism charges, they were asked to prove their innocence. So why is this discrimination in the case of Muslims. Let the Muslim ministers prove that they have no link to terrorism. Sad part of it is that some of them had direct links with terrorism and others indirect. Yes let us get civilized. For the start Muslims must dump barbaric and backward practices of Islam, adopt cultured behaviour by ditching of uncivilized dress of Arabs and stop preaching hatred in mosques, madarasas and social media.

        Salim, “Ayathuray Rajasingam” is probably a paid Shiv Sena agent. Compare his articles I guess one or two are posted in CT too. Compare his way of instigating violence against Muslims with comments etc. Then also compare the English writing style of a screen name “Jay Chambers”.
        .
        I think it is time to trace some of the guys who post comments here in CT anonymously.

          Military intelligence agencies are tracking those Muslims who are posting hatred, in their own name, in bogus names and even in Sinhala names. There is an attempt to tell lies to distract investigations which will lead to arrest of several Muslims.

          Jayantha Udugam,
          Thank you for branding me as a Shiva Sena agent. I am a Hindu and vegetarian and also owns a temple. But one of my daughter-in-laws is a Pakistani lady and from a high stock. She is broad-minded. My cousin got married to a Muslim lady in high societies. Likewise I have some christian, Catholic and Buddhist relatives from the upper stratum of the society. I have written number of articles on Hinduism without harming other faiths. Hinduism is liberal. I am of the view that all religions are like various flowers in a called called earth. Do not worry I used to compare all religions with the UN Declaration of Human Rights. So it is is bitter if I criticize. For your information, Sir Winston Churchill once said that Islam is a dangerous religion and French Philosopher Voltaire said the best Religion is Hinduism which is harmless.

            Why be selective when you quote Churchill? He also said ” The Indians are a beastly people with a beastly religion.” I do hope the racist Churchill is not one of your heroes. The reason he criticized Islam is that the Brits got a bad beating from the Sudanese Muslims.

              And were never able to conquer Afghanistan where I believe the public racist also served in the British army, maybe got beaten up by the Muslim Pashtuns.

              It’s like Gota serving in the North beaten up by Bata wearing boys.

              Agreed. But today the British are concerned when Sharia Law has encroached and is been enforced in some areas. Today had Churchill been alive, he would have reversed his opinion on Hinduism. I have seen even Prince Philip inside a Hindu temple and being treated with great respect. Even before the Presidential election, Trump’s spouse was seen in a Hindu temple receiving blessings. Forgiveness is the nucleus of Hinduism. The West have changed their attitudes.

                “The West have changed their attitudes.”
                Is that why Trump wants a war with Iran now that they have screwed up Libya and Syria. Read your history. OIL is at the root of everything.

      “Muslim politicians were against the amalgamation of North-East Provinces, fearing it would be a checkmate for terrorist activities”

      Next, probably you might say that “LTTE was actively terrorizing in the north, and time-to-time in the south to keep SL out of ISIS terrorism because of the love they had for Sri Lanka” He..he. What is the difference between Hisbullah and Wiggie? For me, the latter is openly preaching Tamil racism is the obvious one.

        Rishard.
        When ‘amalgamation of North-East Province’ is mentioned, it denotes the features of Federalism by which the Provincial Government and the Federal (Central) Government will jointly monitor the activities of all terrorist activities that are harmful to the sovereignty of the country and its constitution. Moreover, now in Kaththankudy, Sinhala, Tamil & English are been pushed away and Arabic language is given due importance regarding the names in every places like Police Station, Roads, etc. We are not against any language, but this is Sri Lanka where due place should be given to its languages. Giving more importance to Arabic and ignoring other languages amounts to racism. Do not twist racialism. There is no race called Muslim. You are a Tamil speaking Sri Lankan. These are unwanted problems.

          .
          You mean “Police Stations”? Then these buggers need a good kick in their rear ends to use a language that is not understood by nearly 100% of Muslims themselves, let alone others. But I still can’t believe these people are trying to use Arabic in a police station, I heard road names in Arabic mentioned in other media..

    In digana case there was no blame on the muslim minister, Presently still investigation is going on and without proof they are accused of so many wrong things, They resigned to have the government investigated for any wrong doing then advice accordingly as said Mr Mangala Samaraweera has said this was the right thing to do. The monk was fasting to put in things normal they minister resigned investigation is on.

    There is a news item which exposes the hidden agenda of the Muslim politicians. It mentions that Dr.Siyabdeeb’s sister’s husband is appointed for high post at the Batticaloa Teaching Hospital. Dr.Wajith (Dental surgeon) has close links with the National Thowheed Jamaath. This is being analyzed by the SLMC & ACMC. Such appointment is been regretted by Buddhist Priest of Mangalarama Vihara at Batticaloa. It appears that resignation of the entire Muslim Ministers is a deviation from the attention of the public to conceal their hidden agenda and they are utilizing the lack of transparency to create panic among the public and the Sinhalese and Tamils are being provoked. It is sad that the government is not vigilant.

            Thank you. What you said was correct. If closely analyze their activities including the names in public places, it appears to degrade the Constitution. It won’t be a surprise they might declare the Eastern Province as a Theocracy State and expect the Muslim States to be recognized as a separate State. I am sorry to state that this appears to be their hidden agenda. If Rishard wants to know about Federal features he can go to USA, Canada, India, Switzerland, Australia and learn about it how they nib terrorism at the very beginning.

          Muslims are circumcised without their consent when they are young, at which age they are unaware of the consequence. I have seen Muslim boys crying when Lebbe drags them by force to chop off, like how Muslim butchers drag cattle for slaughter. It appears that loss of foreskin has an effect on rational thinking of Muslims.

            Not only loss of foreskin, but inbreeding. Marriage with first cousins results in various birth defects, including mental retardation and a lower IQ. Inbreeding is common among Muslims. As stated in the “New York Times” article “Saudi Arabia Awakes to the Perils of Inbreeding,” “Across the Arab world today an average of 45 percent of married couples are related, according to Dr. Nadia Sakati, a pediatrician and senior consultant for the genetics research center at King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Riyadh.”

      You have not proved anyhing of relevance.
      There is much more hidden agenda with the political parties that dance to the tune of certain foreign powers.
      The Muslim ministers resigned in protest against the pointing of fingers against a whole community. They could not have acted otherwise. It is bad that Muzammil accepted a Governor’s post. It is disappointing that one minister did not resign. I wish that they did something similar after Aluthgama and Digana.

    Amir!
    “Give up the Ministerial privileges…….?. ” Ministers are appointed not to obtain personal privileges but to serve the people who elected them. But unfortunately they seem to be satisfied with their privileges and forget their duties towards the people.
    Not only their ministerial privileges but also their MP’s privileges should be suspended or should be sent on compulsory leave like PUGITHA, so that they will not use their influence as MP’s to change the course of Inquiry. Every inquiry does not end up with justice and every pronouncement of justice according to law does not end up with appropriate punishment as far as big wigs are concerned.

    There are number of Tamils being in the jail for decades with alleged allegations and forged evidences and without charging. I strongly believe that some of the Muslim politicos have some or close involvement with the ISIS bombers. Unfortunately, foolish brainless Sinhalese and Monks diverted the real focus and started violence against innocent Muslims and Monks playing politics and racism. Now Sinhalese internationally branded as racists and gave an escape route to real political criminals associated with ISIS terrorism.

    I don’t understand why Muslims say the accusations against Muslim ministers should be proven in a court of law for them to resign. Why was that logic not applied to Ravi, Marapana or Wijeydasa? None of them are proven guilty in a court of law. They were removed because there was a certain acceptance among people that they nolonger had any ethical reason to remain in the posts. Badurdeen is an extremely controversial character whose name had been associated with NTJ terrorists far too much. The people in this country asking for his resignation is a fair one

      First of all, the entire Muslim Ministers should have resigned no sooner it was exposed that the NTJ was involved and that some Muslim Ministers had close links with them, if they are really sincere to Sri Lanka as their mother country. It is their hidden agenda to proclaim the Eastern Province as Islamic State with a Caliphate that compelled them to postpone their resignation. If one looks into their past events ‘those Facts will speak themselves’.

    Dear Ayathuray Rajasingham!

    Wow, first of all I honour you with a free of charge title “String hopper scientist”, therefore I don’t need to elaborate on .”contraceptive pills” business. The very reason, the Ministers for their resignation told was that do a proper investigation of your accusation on Muslim MPs and Ministers within month and if you cannot prove anything against them then SHUT UP. . AR can now go to any police station and register his oral evidence against these Minister if he is sure about their involvement with terrorists.

      Ahmad Nadvi,
      This was a news item. The incident took place at Karaitivu in the Eastern Province where the child became unconscious after eating string hoppers. It was a after investigating and examining the string hoppers they found contraceptive pills being powdered and made. You have to prove that these Ministers have no links at all with this notorious Zaharan’s Group. Hereafter who will buy goods from you all. It is because of the Islamic terrorist activities the IPKF razed Kaththankudy to the ground. Had the North East Provinces being remained as one Province there would have been a Check on the movements of the terrorists. Even when Lalith Athulathmudali was Minister for National Security, it was found that the chicken was injected with polluted water in order to increase by 2 kilos after some soldiers were found to be suffering with diahorrea. Number of videos showing Rishard Badudeen and Hisbullah compelled the people to think that Muslims as unreliable. First give up being as a self alienating community and begin to mix with others. I can give still a number of instances.

        Ahmad Navi, stop attacking others because you are a stupid Islamic infidel. There is ample proof about involvement of several Muslim politicians, businessmen and professionals in Islamic terrorism. So do not try to cover up by threatening anyone who is standing up against your agenda. Top politicians of both government and opposition including JVP have received large sums of money from these people and are hindering the investigations. Unfortunately back bench politicians of both side are up in arms supported by general public and Buddhist priest. There is a concerted attempt by Muslim racists to propagate false propaganda to smear dirt on those who are fighting to bring out the truth. Did you hear that Hisbullah has threatened Sinhalese saying that Muslims may be a minority in Sri Lanka but are the majority in the world, and therefore you can do nothing to Muslims. If he was really innocent why is he challenging Sinhalese. Does he think that Sinhalese will be frightened and drop the charges and allow Muslims to take over the country.

    I am now starting to believe in Buddha, not Siva or Allah. He saved Ranil from forming one man National Unity Government with Leader Hakeem. Thanks Buddha! Now Hakeem’s October (May?) revolution has been now avoided.
    Hakeem is still driving the Luxury car, but not interrupted or bothered by ministry secretary’s cell calls.

    When the Tamil Hindu King, from Kathirkamam, grew jealous of the fame of the Tamil Buddhist King Ellala spreading up to down south, he went to Anuradhapura with massive army men, elephants, Chariots, Horses and cordoned the capital city. The stentorian noise arising from the drums and conches vibrated he capital city’s buildings. The Buddhist King following Asoka, sworn to nonviolence, did not have army to match that tsunami wave. Still, when warned by spies about the soon to come invasion, he had made some preparation to protect his palace, subjects….. But a cat is not a match for the elephant. The Buddhist King Ellala did not want to murder his troops for the ego of remaining in Kingdom beyond 40 years. Yet, just because he wanted to follow Asoka’s example, he didn’t want to surrender without a fight. Further, if he surrenders without a fight, it will not guarantee the safety of his subjects, from the troops cordoning around the fortress, fire breathing, calling for blood and flesh from northern citizens.

    The Buddhist king, the known angel, got off from his throne and went alone to the warriors Hindu King, the unknown devil. The Hindu King thought he was coming to surrender. His troops were shouting victory slogans to reach the clouds in the sky. But to above and over the noise in the war front, the King Ellala spoke in loud and clear voice, ” O’ The brave knight from Kathirkamam, The King of the rich land Rukunu, King Kaimunu, You have come to claim the Kingdom of North, I guess; Is that it is? “

    Kathirkama King shouted back from his elephant, Kanthan Thunai, “ O the pious King of North, if your greed are extinguished and you seeks beyond Nirvana, fight now; If you like to take care of my elephant in its stable, surrender now.”
    Northern King replied in with his usual cool, “ThenNaadava, who is braver than Lord Siva, or Lord Muruga, to save my subjects, I am prepared to both, fight with you and die or surrender to you and become a slave of you; either of them does for me; but none of them can happen that quick or so easy as you think!”.

    “Hey coward, who is blabbering fearing to die, take your arms and fight with me” Rukunu king stormed again.
    Still patient Northern King Replied “Sure, I came down here only to fight with you, I will fight with you very soon, but I want to have a word with you before we start the fight. I as soon as you reply to my request the war is starting”.

    Not knowing how to reply, paused back little bit, and then with a very attentive voice, Hindu King said to the Northern king, who was standing on the floor” Speak up man! Aren’t you a king?”

    The entire war front became the sea before the storm. Conches and drums and clinking noises of the metals and even the prayers the soldiers uttering within themselves to their Family Gods all died immediately. Victory, Jubilation, Gaiety, Confusion, Disappointment, Defeat, all sort of feelings spread through the crowd simultaneously. Unbearable by year piercing silence in the war front, Kanthan Thunai trumpeted like the thunder rolling in the sky. When that too went down, Northern King started to speak.

    “The Young warrior King from Rukunu, who looks very intelligent, very strong, very bright, Very convincing, listen to this and think of it carefully. I am not going to surrender, but I am going to fight with you. I promise to grant you what you are seeking from me.
    In few minutes, either you or I will be ruling the North and South, but not we both. If there is a chance you gain the control of North I beg you to crown on my throne and, become the King of the North, not the merciless enemy destroyer of North. Turn to the side of the troops and see in their eyes their dedication, their determination, their confusion & their fear. Look even further behind; look at the women and children crying & praying for their husbands, brothers, fathers, relatives. Please sympathetically listen to their appeals to their family gods & goddesses for the safety return their beloved ones. Neither you, nor me are the title holders of this earth. The duty assigned to us is to take care of them. Then why should they suffer, perish & die to protect either of us. I am not willing to pledge them for my protection. I would wish you too. If you agree to that, then on this front, it is only you and me are going to fight. My troops will not throw one single arrow on yours; I want yours to do the same. If you win, you should not kill even one of my subjects. Your troops should not set fire to one single hut. Not one woman should return back to home carrying shame with her. I want you take my subjects as your own subject, my troops as your own troops, my palace and properties as yours to own. Give me that promise like caballero”.

    “King, who rules this vast land of North for half a century, be you having it. You will be treated like a fallen king according the Hindu Dharma and Custom. Your subjects and servants and your family will be receiving every justice they received in your reign. But the time is passing. My fellows walked for months and miles dreaming & longing for this occasion. Call for Maha Pambaram (Named for its whirling agility, while Kanthan Thunai was known for its mighty) Mount on it! North King turned back and showed his hand to send the Pambaram. He mounted on and the war started. It happened in 137 BC. Kaimunu built the Memorial tomb to Ellala and ordered the passersby to pay respect for it; and he changed his religion to match with Ellala.
    The recently adopted, Rishard’s Arabian culture is making him to differ in the legendary kings, Kaimunu and Ellarlan in his way of perception. He didn’t like to face the judgment alone. He took his wife, Children, colleagues, fellow ministers, politician and the whole Muslim community, with him.

        Hey justice,

        You sounds like you cannot accept or believe some or other part of the history. But, sure you have ready recognized the other parts. Then there is no problem, just tell me which parts give you problems; we smooth it all out, without any more doubt on those. For that all, why do you need original source. You got that it is rewritten to resemble a drama or movie. Where can I go for the original scripts for that? Sure all those are creative parts. Who watched the legendaries talking in the war front still alive to come for the CT’s court?

        Don’t miss the Mappillai Rishard! Important one. “Kaliyana Santhadi” (Wedding rush)

          Hey Savams the Brain dead,

          Are you that much jealous man? I am seeing you are struggling to write many comments in this thread to show your PhD existence too. But they all sound like the “Pandi Pala Kuddy Paudal”. (Elephant delivers one to rule the jungle, but the pig delivers 10 for other animals pray). I can understand that it is too difficult to write anything constructive, elegant, and meaningful with a standardization PhD. It is the sin parents commits by buying the toys for their children their children cannot play with, so the toy chocks their throat. What can we do to fix it at this age?

    Yet another bullshit essay from writer trying hard to white wash Muslim politicos..That may be the general nature of all the Islamist as they may believe every Islamist is trying hard to make whole world adhere to their Almighty & cause destruction to vile animals or nonbelievers. As such white washing may be writer’s duty as per writer’s belief.. Resignation of whole lot together is same thing. White washing fellow ministers & governors who were accused of acting behind the curtain. Just like directors of Muppet shows. General public feel or think that Saharan & company only the Muppet. Directors may be accused governors & Minister. If others are not well-wishers They could have supported Law enforcement Authorities in various ways to find out truth & expose culprits. But they are not doing that but enforce time frame to authorities to finish the job. What a nonsense. What a Joke writer Ameer Ali ????????????????????????????????? Writer like apologists are doing same I suppose.

        Mister,

        I am a veteran of the Armed forces of Sri Lanka. What do you think if someone like Fowzy was brought in for questioning?

        Once during the Eeelam war, we brought in a 90 year old man for questioning, when he did not start vomitting the facts we wanted to hear, guess what the boys started doing?

    Sajith, your father is responsible for the pathetic situation native Sinhalayo have gotten into. When the Proportional Representation system was introduced the initial cut off point for any party to qualify for parliamentary representation was 12.5% but Ranasinghe Premadasa reduced the cut-off point to 5% on a request made by M H M Ashraff of the SLMC before the 1988 elections. The reduction was with political intent and resulted in ethnic-based political parties with ethnic-based agendas to enter parliament and legislatively weaken and destabilize Sri Lanka incrementally to what it is today. The guy who did this should rot in hell for trillion years.

    The only acceptable reason for the resignation was to prevent a highly probable island-wide anti-Muslim riot sparked by one monk who was fasting unto death, and another whipping up anti-Muslim fervour, until two Muslim provincial governors and a Muslim minister removed from their positions.

    *** You havent seen nothing yet. Wait for MR to come back to power and thn the Gansaras will be on the rise under the patronage of MR and the Racists . At least Gotha wont be a President because he will attending Trials in the US but he will yield power from behind when he returns from Singapore after being treated for Mental Fatigue. brought on by the worries as which Jail he will serve the rest of his time

          I think Gnanasara was doing a contract for someone. See now everyone has forgotten about Islamist extremism and dangerous fellows like Hisbulla are treated like innocent rabbits who had to face injustice because of Sinhala racism. Yes, I think Gnanasara did what Hisbulla wanted.

      If MR was in power, we would not have seen a Easter day bomb attack. Ask any SLMC or ACMC fellows whether they want this dysfunctional RW government to continue. They will say YES. Because the chaos, the dysfunctional government, RW’s strategy of appeasing Muslim extremists has given an excellent opportunity for these parties to implement their tribal agendas. That is exactly why Muslim mps, even after resigning has steadfastly stood for RW government.

    There is another crime Badurdeen should be punished. He along with his brother has violated the trade pacts SL had with India, by exporting imported spices from Vietnam. It is a big business for him. And news of that was in media couple of months ago. Incredibly everytime Badurdeen’s brother is arrested he is released. He has done a great injustice to the poor spice farmers in Sri Lanka.

    If a mass resignation of Muslim ministers were required, it should have been done after the violence in Kurunegala and rest of North West. I didnt see them resigning then. I didnt see any Muslim mp or minister raising their voice and questioning on why Amith Weerasighe of Mahasohon balaka was released. But when Badurdeen was asked to resign, all hell broke lose.

    In Parliament speaking in Tamil Richard Badiutheen dwelt on the concept of rule of law. He asked why those Sinhala – Buddhist mobs led by monks who destroyed scores of shops/hotels/vehicles worth hundreds of millions of rupees were released after arrest. One of the business establishment destroyed was a factory producing pasta. The loss was around Rs.700 million.
    Earlier the Sinhala – Buddhist mobs led by yellow-robed monks attacked and destroyed Tamil homes in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1979, 1981 and 1983. The armed forces and Police simply look the other way when the mobs torched buildings and killed Tamils in their hundreds. The irony is even today, the armed forces consisting of majority Sinhala – Buddhists were looking the other way at Mawenella, Kurunegala and other places. Since the majority of members in the armed forces (95%) are Sinhala – Buddhists the safety and security of the minorities are not protected by the state.  Now a single monk goes on fast demanding the expulsion of Minister Richard Badiutheen and that monk is hailed as a hero, not a law-breaker.

    If a single yellow-robed monk can wield such power, why not appoint the Chief Monk of Malwatte Chapter as the President, Chief monk of Asgiriya  Chapter as the Prime Minister,  Ramanna Nikaya as Speaker. Of course, you appoint Galaboda Aththe Gnanasara Thera as the Leader of the Opposition. Since these monks are learned, pious and virtuous their rule will result in honey and milk flowing from all corners of the Island!

    apart from the terrorist connection of the muslim politicians which have to be proved anyway, i listened to some of the speeches by hisbulla..it is almost close to gnasara thero. he talks about blood bath, -muslims killing tamils ?- and capturing the eastern province to bring it under the muslim rule and seriously talks about muslim majority in the world. and therefore muslims cannot be suppressed. fortunately he is minority in SL. i was really astonished to listen to his speech. he has no ‘quality’ to be a governor of a multi ethnic eastern province. he can have his extremist views but unsuitable for this position.
