Inside Story Of The Torching Aluthgama Muslim Owned Shop

By Rifai Naleemi –

A group of nearly three hundred radical Buddhist extremists have burned down a Muslim owned shop in Aluthgama town on 8/5/14.  This was not coincidently happened attack on the shop of this innocent Muslim businessman rather this was a premeditated racist attack to destroy the livelihood of this man. There is no shadow doubt that this attack was initiated and carried out with the support of Police, BBS and some Buddhist radicals of this area. This was the only Muslim shop in Aluthgama town. This shop has been set on fire last night (8/5/2014). It is believed that some extremist Buddhist people under the leadership of some radical Buddhist monks set fire to this Muslim shop. We should listen to the owner of this shop to know what exactly happened to his shop and why his shop was set on fire.

The owner of this is Mr. Ahmad khan. He has been living in this town since his childhood and he has been running this family business for many years. With his dedication and hard works he managed to build this shop and developed his business. He and his brother managed to develop their business with years of hard works and dedications: yet, some Sinhalese people in the town become jealous of this growing business and they did not want see one and only Muslim shop in that town. He has been doing business among Sinhalese people in that town.

It is due to mere jealousy and hared that this shop was set on fire and destroyed.  Some of these jealous people deliberately and intentionally created a plot and conspiracy to destroy this hardworking Muslim man’s shop and his livelihood without any human remorse for his family and children.

They plotted and conspired. As a part of their conspiracy they sent a mother and a son to his shop some time ago. This mother came up with a fabricated story against the owner of the shop. She claimed that her son was strangled or squeezed by his neck by the brother of shop owner and she made a complaint about it to Aluthgama police station and the brother of shop keeper was taken to police custody. He was kept in police for one and half day. This episode was craftily y set up by some elements in the town to destroy this shop and livelihood of this innocent business man

In order to revenge for this fabricated story some 300 hundreds Sinhalese radicals demonstrated in the township under the leadership of some monks.  They shouted that this Muslim shop would be set on fire and burned down! Police warned the owner of this shop to close down the shop when the demonstrators were marching towards the town and yet he turned down that request saying there was no reason to close the shop. The owner told police he has done no wrong to close his shop. The demonstrators did not do any damage to the shop on the day of demonstration and yet, at night time the shop was set on fire by some of these thugs. The shop was totally destroyed and nearly 50 million rupees worth of goods are destroyed and shop is totally burned down.  

This was a racially motivated incident.  It was reported that Police did not take any action against the culprits of this attack and police has been supporting these thugs. It should be mentioned here that entire Police team at Aluthgama should take the responsibility for this incident since they have failed to take action.  They have failed in their official duties and they perverted course of justice in this case. It is in front of these police that this shop has been destroyed and yet, Police have not taken any action. Police was collaborating with these thugs, otherwise these thugs would not be able to do this destruction that quickly in that speed in the middle of the town.

This begs many questions about the prejudice and discriminative attitudes of Police in Sri Lanka. Police force is a law enforcement agent in any country. Sadly such law enforcing agent itself is collaborating with thugs to break the laws and order of this country? Why did not police take any action against these people and why did not police stop this destruction and why did not police do something to stop this injustice? The credibility of Police is questionable today in Sri Lanka?

There is no need to destroy a shop because of any minor incident or dispute.  We have a good legal system in Sri Lanka.  Why these people do not take these types of incidents to court rather than following the path of violence and destruction in Sri Lanka? Who is going to benefit from such destruction? No one benefits from such destruction. It is public who will pay the price for such destruction and it is our own national resources we destroy.

End of the day, we are damaging the image of our country and its economy by these types of anti-social behaviours and barbarism.  Today we do not need people who destroy Sri Lanka rather we need people who develop and build our Sri Lanka.

After all these happened to Muslims in Sri Lanka in broad day light, no constructive steps have been taken yet, neither by this government or Muslim politicians to stop this anti-communal activities. This government should take responsibility  for all these racist attacks.  This government is trying to catch fish in trouble water and it has been ignoring the plights of Muslims deliberately and intentionally for its dirty political ambitions. Our selfish politicians have failed to grasp the grave danger that has already engulfed Muslim community in Sri Lanka.

    Dr.Nallemi,

    How can you expect the Architects ( the GOSL) of this attacks with Gothas patronage to protect your Community. You Leaders cant and wont help you and You have to now forge an alliance with your fellow Tamils of the North and East and make a representaion to BJP and the Iron lady to offer you protection. We are safe but your community is under suspicion of aiding Pakistan ISI and that is why the following has happened:

    Indian naval vessels to prevent ISI infiltration from Sri Lanka
    May 9 (PTI) Three Naval patrol vessels arrived at the Navy jetty here today in the backdrop of information that Pakistan’s ISI could infiltrate India from Sri Lanka through the sea. Officials who confirmed the arrival of the three vessels, however, refused to give any further information. The ships could be meant for strengthening presence of navy in the region and prevent infiltration of ISI agents by sea from Sri lanka. Only two days ago, a senior official of Tamil Nadu Coastal area confirmed the presence.

      The Mosquitos should stop whining and buzzing and file a case against the Saffron Monk Thugs.

      Muslims should ask their leaders, particularly the clown and so called Minister of INJUSTICE., Rauf Hakeem, to RESIGN and stop supporting Mahinda Jarapassa!

      Ela Ela…you have a fantastic solution for people suspected as criminals!
      Burn their business & livelihood and probably kill the person as well! Why not we implement this to all across Sri Lanka.
      Sad to see people like you still never learnt lessons from the history how communal riots grows into war!
      This country had seen enough blood, let’s be more civilised in dealing with issues rather than using violence.

          “Are you blind, they’re breeding like cockroaches to overwhelm us”

          Whats wrong with breeding?

          Is there a law against breeding?

          Are you suggesting the state must pass a law against Muslim breeding?

    “Since you Muslims came to do trade with Sri Lanka a few centuries back,”

    How long back?

    Why did your Sinhala/Buddhists and their Tamil brethren come to my ancestral land?

    “Now that you have reached 10%, you want to replace our (infidels) laws with your sharia.”

    The Tamils and Sinhalese together have reached about 21 million from a population of mere 700 criminals, copulating/mating with women from Tamilaham, and been imposing outdated Hindu laws on us. Isn’t it wrong?

    “Google ‘attacks against muslims in France, 2014′ and learn what’s happening there.”

    Are you a Sinhala Frenchman who seems bent on justifying those attacks on Muslims? Are you saying that Sinhala/Buddhists attacks on Muslims in this island are few and far between hence the need to increase attacks to a comparable level?

      Vedda, You haven’t Googled ‘attacks against muslims in France, 2014′. I say that because you talk as the result is whites attacking Muslims. No no no. The first ten results from that search is ‘attacks on whites by Muslims in France and their plight. Try it. We Sinhalese do not want to be in the shoes of such unfortunate people.

      “What is the Vedda population in Sri Lanka today.?”

      According to Veddah elders its about 50,000.
      Read the excerpts below:

      Population

      There are a total of 2,272 families of Veddas in the project area. Considering the population data, Vedda population in the project area is between 7,350- 7,500 and the total Vedda population including the areas not considered in the project (Anuradhapura, Thoppur, Uppural, Muttur and Panama) the figure could not be in excess of 10,000, but a thorough census needs to be conducted to identify the exact number of Vedda population.)

    The Sadhu’s must fly everyday to Saudi Arabia in MihinLanka to burn shops in Saudi Arabia which will be an expensive expedition.

    So Stop immediately sending Sinhalese young girls and boys to Middle East. I am very sure many of them are molested, groped and even F^&d by Muslims in the desert also known as Arabs.

    Let us prove we Sinhalese are not jealous of Muslims wealth but we will burn all Muslim shops if the Muslim dare to fool around with our young girls and boys.

    If anyone f&*% the Sinhalese it should be done only by a fellow Sinhalese, Sadhu’s are given first preference as they are the natural protector of Sinhalese.

    Let all the Embassies from Middle Eastern countries warn their country men not to employ Sinhalese to avoid their shops burnt.

    Let all the Hambayas know local and foreign that Sinhalese are a highly principled race and they mean business.

    To Prema : Anyone forcing to send your sinhala girls and boys to the Middle East ???? Check your facts as to who the sinhala girls are hanging on to, You think the Arabs are blind ? The girls / boys who work in the Middle East are from all over the world. So they dont need to rape the sinhala girls. Be grateful for the income that comes to Sri Lanka from the Arab countries. Many families are able to live a good life thanks to the Middle East. Added to this the Middle Eastern girls / boys are of great beauty. Of course you are dying of jealousy re: the muslims wealth if not why do you mention …………. If you claim to be so principled how come you act so low ??? who does these monks think they are to take law and order into their own hands ???? every human being has the right to practice his or her religion in harmony
