Is Modi Spreading Hindutva Fascism To Sri Lanka?

By Latheef Farook

Latheef Farook

It appears Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, representing RSS Hindutva fascism, is spreading his hatred towards Sri Lankan Muslims.

On the day the newly elected President Gotabaya Rajapaksa assumed office Mr Modi dispatched his Foreign Minister Subramanian Jaishanker to meet President Gotabaya. Writing about this in Colombo Telegraph under the title India’s carrot and stick to President Rajapaksa Rajeewa Jayaweera had this to state;

Less than 72 hours after Gotabaya Rajapaksa took oaths as the seventh Executive President of Sri Lanka, an unannounced and uninvited visitor arrived in the country. Indian Foreign Minister S Jaishankar landed in Colombo as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special envoy, with an invitation for the Sri Lankan President to visit India. Mr Jaishankar also reportedly conveyed India’s expectations to President Gotabaya.

Following his visit to Colombo Mr Jaishankar had stated in the Rajya Sabha that “President Gotabaya assured us that he is the President for all Sri Lankans. We need to look at that assurance and obviously whatever discussions happen during his visit would demonstrate where that assurance holds”.

Since then in all his statements Mr Modi has repeatedly spoken about the rights of Tamils. Addressing the media jointly during President Gotabaya’s visit to New Delhi following closed-door bilateral talks during which only an Indian translator, no Sri Lankan note-taker, was present, Mr Modi said;

“President Rajapaksa told me about his inclusive political outlook on ethnic harmony. I am confident that the Government of Sri Lanka will carry forward the process of reconciliation, to fulfil the aspirations of the Tamils for equality, justice, peace and respect. It also includes the implementation of the 13th amendment.

However Mr Modi never mentioned a word about the third important community in the island – the Muslims. Knowing his racist mindset of extreme hostility, Muslims cannot expect Mr Modi to be humane to them.

Then came the news about India’s offer of a US$ 400m line of credit for infrastructure and development and a further US$ 50m to combat terrorism.

During following day’s talks with Premier Modi, matters related to the security of the two nations received priority. “India has always assisted Sri Lanka to enhance our capabilities in intelligence and counter-terrorism. “We look forward to continue support in this regard “said Mr Modi.

Now the question is why combat so called terrorism at a time when there is no terrorism in the island. The only terrorism in the island is planned and   organized by a small group of RSS type Sinhala racist attacks on innocent and unarmed Muslims .These senseless attacks began in the aftermath of the defeat of LTTE in May 2009 and continued with greater intensity in the wake of Easter Sunday massacre.

Government ministers and Cardinal Rev Malcolm Ranjith repeatedly stated that foreign forces were involved in the Easter Sunday attacks which resembled thousands of RSS attacks on Indian Muslims since the partition of the country in 1947. However to date Maithri-Ranil’s former government has failed to disclose who these foreign forces were.

According to reports Indian intelligence informed Sri Lankan authorities of the anticipated Easter Sunday attacks as early as 4 April 2019. Speculations were that both Israel intelligence MOSSAD and RSS were involved in the attacks. However racist mercenaries in the media refused to disclose this aspect.

On the other hand Narendra Modi is no angel of peace. He, as Chief Minister, was accused of committing genocide on Guajarati Muslims in February 2002. He was declared persona non grata by most countries in the world including US and many other European countries. This very same Modi is prime minister of India-the largest democracy in the world. He also speaks about terrorism and the Brahmin controlled media give wide publicity.

He has unleashed violence against Muslims ever since elected to power six years ago. The BJP’s Uttar Chief Minister Aditya Yogi has asked his Hindutva thugs to dig out dead and buried Muslim women from graves and rape. This barbarity continues unabated to date. This is the plight of the great ancient country of India, where religions and civilizations flourished.

It is common knowledge that Israel and India ,under the Washington-Tel Aviv,New Delhi axis, have got together   to corner the entire Middle East and bring South Asia under their influence. BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav once told Al Jazeera that the border of Greater India stretches from Afghanistan to South Asia. The message is clear to knowledgeable Sri Lankans. This is the reason why we in Sri Lanka need to be cautious about Indian and Israeli presence here.

It is true that RSS type Sinhala racist violence poisoned the minds of innocent Sinhalese against Muslims. The result was the election of a president predominantly by majority Sinhalese votes.

Inevitably the country is divided between majority Sinhalese and minorities. It is make or break time for the newly elected President Gotabaya. Tamils and Muslims have clearly stated their intention to set aside the past sufferings and work together with the new president.

It is up to president Gotabya to bring communities together and move the country ahead. The need of the hour is communal harmony to turn this beautiful island once again into a paradise where everyone could live in harmony.

      This article is complete nonsense and is unhelpful to Sri Lankan Muslims. Latheef Farook appears paranoid and bigoted. His views come across as that of a Wahabi fascist. He needs to get out of his blinkered and extreme mindset that blames Buddhists, Jews and Hindus.

        Yes, indeed, this Mr. Farook is deluded and should open his eyes The real spreader of anti-Muslim sentiment is USA and partners Isreal and Saudi Arabia that has exported Wahabi-Salafi-Sunni hate project throughout South East Asia, also attacking and against Iran, Shias and Sufis
        Now, Saudi, Israel and US that want to set up an ISIS Caliphate in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka to fight the dirty war on China in the Indian Ocean. US and Sudi staged the Easter Carnage US owned Islamic State (ISIS) Easter Carnage in Sri Lanka to weaponize Islam and cause tensions with Buddhists and Christains. USA has been using Muslims everywhere in the World to sell terrorism and sell its weapons

        I totally concur with you Roshan. Yes this article is full of venom of the worst kind.
        Who is this guy to judge others and hate mongering . He should check his facts before putting pen to paper.
        This kind of hate breads hate. It should stopped at any cost. Law abiding citizens have no fear to live any where in the world peacefully
        India has enough land mass not to worry about occupying failed states.

      I don’t understand why Lateef Farouk is worried about Modi not talking for Muslims instead of giving him a cold shoulder. You should be worried if Gota doesn’t talk for Muslims. Go in private and ask Modi if he wants Tamils or Rajapakses. Then ask again if he wants Rajapakses or US.

      I even don’t know how Lateef Farouk links Hindutva with Tamils.

      “It is true that RSS type Sinhala racist violence poisoned the minds of innocent Sinhalese against Muslims. The result was the election of a president predominantly by majority Sinhalese votes”

      Effect, symptom. Earlier it was against the Tamils., the cause.

      The cause was Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhism. This goes back 2,300 years. For your edification, may I suggest you read and comprehend, “Buddhism Betrayed” by D. Stanley Tambiah, Chicago University Press, 1992., with a forward by Lal Jayawardane.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith_of_Najd

      The Muslims have been added to the mix, partly because of the excesses of Wahhabi-Salafies who follow Satan per the prescient Hadith of Najd. They also commit atrocities and terrorism, and per the above hadith will end up in Hell-Fire., if there is one.

      Hadith of Najd- Najd is in Wahhabi-Salafi Saudi Arabia.

      “O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Shaam. O Allaah bestow your blessings on our Yemen.” The people said, “O Messenger of Allaah, and our Najd.” I think the third time the Prophet, sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam, said, “There (in Najd) will occur earthquakes, trials and tribulations, and from there appears the Horn of Satan.”

        The writer is a Muslim. Like imran khan, who openly called for Muslims to commit jihad against Hindus, the writer is calling the Hindu ideology “fascism”. Did Hindutva kill those 259 Christians in Sri Lanka? Is Hindutva killing 1000s of innocent around the world today? Typical of all jihadi-sympathizers, the writer would rather blame Hindus or Jews rather than denounce Islamic supremacy!

          Here is what Hindutva can do:

          “Cow vigilante violence involves mob attacks in the name of “cow protection” targeting mostly illegal cow smugglers, but in some cases even licensed cow traders, has swelled since 2014.[1][2] There is a debate on whether there has actually been any change in the number of such incidences, as Government Data points out to reduced communal tensions post 2014.[3][4] Cattle slaughter is banned in most states of India.[5] Recently emerged cow vigilante groups, claiming to be protecting cattle, have been violent leading to a number of deaths. Cow-protection groups see themselves as preventing theft, protecting the cow or upholding the law in an Indian state which bans cow slaughter. According to a Reuters report, a total of 63 cow vigilante attacks had occurred in India between 2010 and mid 2017, mostly since the Modi government came to power in 2014. In these attacks between 2010 and June 2017, “28 Indians – 24 of them Muslims – were killed and 124 injured”, states the Reuter’s report.[6]”

          So that must be Hindu supremacy in India.

            The Western Commissions and media are lopsided in their opinions and you quote them to your benefit. When these very same people condemn Islamic violence, you condemn them. The brutal murders taking place are perpetrated by fringe extremists elements and they have been condemned by the Govt. and legal action taken against them. Such incidents are on the decline. Even Hindus who indulge in cow smuggling and slaughter have suffered. These are nothing compared to the kidnapping, forcible marriage and conversions of non-Muslim girls to Islam happening in Islamic Pakistan and to some extent Bangladesh. The minorities in Pakistan has come down from 23% at the time of partition to 4%. The minorities in India and Sri Lanka are so much better off than in most Islamic countries.

            Cow vigilantism is done by fringe fanatic groups whose actions have been condemned by the Govt. and legal action taken against. It is the Muslims and to a much lesser extent Christians who indulge in cow slaughter and smuggling and this accounts for the high percentage of Muslims who suffered. Even some Hindus have been at the receiving end. Cow slaughter is banned in most States in India. This does not mean people taking the law into their own hands is condoned. Talking of Hindu supremacy in India, it is nothing compared to Islamic supremacy in Pakistan and to a lesser extent Bangladesh and many Muslim countries. This explains the drastic decline in minorities from 23% to 4% in Pakistan, since Independence. On the other hand Muslim population has increased from 8% to 14.2% since Independence.

      Islam is violent. Look at Libya, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Israel, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Sri Lanka to name a few. Muhammad killed off one entire Jewish tribe in Medina. He married a six year old girl – Aisha. This is child sex. He killed people. The Muslims in some countries, like Egypt, even circumcize their daughters. That’s mutilation.

      K Anaga,

      What about the Cardinal’s boss the Popes? Not the Gospel Truth?

      Rev. Martin Luther agreed, and nailed the 95 Theses, on the door of the Wittenberg Church, October 31, 1519.

      If the Popes are infallible, and the Popes are selected from the Cardinals, does it mean that the Cardinals are infallible as well?

      Are the Popes and the Cardinals the agents of the Satan, as some, especially the Protestants claim?

    Are you spreading Wahabi Salafist fascism in Sri Lanka? Where is your unequivocal condemnation of the Easter attacks and extremism and Arabification of Kattankudi and other areas? You always write fiction as fact and blame Israel for everything. Does it mean Israel is much smarter, superior and more able than Arabs? Seems so, globally if you look at the numbers of people with Nobel prizes. Arabs are inherently weak and corrupt.

    • 24

      Maybe if you had the intelligence to go back and read the condemnation for the Easter attacks by Muslims when it happened you might not sound so ignorant.

      Israel will be nothing without US tax payer charity, endless flow of American weapons used to kill unarmed civilians, and the protection at the UN whenever the world condemns Israel’s war crimes.
      It seems Jews were weak too at one time, when a certain German inflicted the worst pain on them….how things have turned, the abused has become the abuser, add arrogance to that too.

      One has only got to look at the the decades of suffering the Palestinians have had to endure under those “wonderful” Israelis, the blockades (even jams and basic food stuff banned from entering Gaza), the shameless land theft and illegal settlements, theft of water, olive trees burnt and stolen, which the entire world condemns, and the consistent killing of Palestinian kids, who have NEVER KNOWN FREEDOM.
      They are killed because they PROTEST THEIR BRUTAL OCCUPATION, by an occupier, who have kept them down for over 60 years, and now mock them for not ‘ACHIEVING’ anything in their life.

      As for CORRUPTION hasn’t your war criminal leader Netanyahu been indicted for corruption? One PM already served a sentence for that.

      Israel is one of the most disliked nations in the world.
      As of 2013, Israel had been condemned in 45 resolutions by the United Nations Human Rights Council.

        It’s Sri Lanka‘s prerogative to decide who it allies with. This could be China regardless of the Uighurs, Israel regardless of the Palestinians, Myanmar regardless of the Rohingyas or India.

          I can so easily disprove your lies:

          BBC Poll: Israel Among World’s Least Popular Nations

          The world’s opinion of Israel has not improved in the last year: According to BBC World Service’s annual poll, Israel is one of the least popular countries in the world; the only states less popular are North Korea, Pakistan and Iran.

          The survey, conducted among 26,000 people in 25 countries, found Germany to be the most popular country. 59 percent of respondents, who were asked to rate 16 countries according to how positively they impact the world, placed Germany at the top.
          Only 21 percent of participants had a positive view on Israel, while 52 percent viewed the country unfavorably. Iran, in comparison, won the favorable opinion of 15 percent of those who answered the survey, while 59 percent viewed it unfavorably. Haaretz

          That would be from an Israeli publication.

          “Our country” would that be Israel or maybe India. Hmmm….

          If you want a list of Israel’s crimes – occupation, land theft, stealing Palestinian water, olive trees, soil, blockades, killing unarmed civilians, to name a few.

        Menik,

        1 – We don’t give a shit about who is right in the Israeli-Palestinian quarrel. We know that if one of them get the upper hand, they will commit unspeakable crimes against another – not much to separate them morally, but that is none of our business. Stick to the issue.

        2- Dropping the word ‘intelligent’ in every other comment does not make your comments intelligent, and calling others ‘ignorant’ does not make you wise or smart either. You need to present a coherent argument, which you are spectacularly failing to do. Just like your Latheef (may be you are Latheef????). See below.

        3- Latheef laments that Modi didn’t speak about Muslim rights to a foreign leader. Seriously? Why should he? There are several dozens of Muslim countries in the world. Latheef should ask one of them to voice for the Muslims in this island. I agree that Modi should be fair to all his citizens including Muslims, but defending Muslims in a FOREIGN country does not become his job, just because the Saudis dont give a shit about you brown Muslims.

      Stop complaining about other religions when it is the Muslim extremism that is being spread across, is causing trouble in many parts of the world. What is wrong in spreading RSS ideology by India, when Pakistan and Arabic countries are Spreading Islamic fundamentalism in Sri Lanka. It is well known that Pakistani agents are working among Muslims in the east to promote hatred against Tamils. Zaharan and other Muslim extremists are the creation of Pakistan, without whose support, these terrorists would not have been brain washed to sacrifice their lives to kill Catholics and Tamils, who had done no harm to Muslims. In a recent interview, Gota said that when he was defence secretary, he expelled 160 Muslim preachers who were indoctrinating Muslims om extremist theology. It is the Muslims who are the worst racists and not Sinhalese or Tamils. None of the Muslim politicians or professionals have neither condemned nor apologized for the recent racist attack by Athaulla on Indian Tamils. This shows that Muslims do not consider to be wrong any crime committed by a Muslim on others. Writer is suffering from Hindu and Buddha phobia.

        The racists are the ones in saffron robes going around the country, spreading hate against the minority, and attacking their places of worship. The racists are the ones spreading fake stories about wanda pethys, charmed toffees, and Muslim doctors sterilizing Buddhist women, the racists are those who killed Muslims in a Mosque, and setting their homes, and businesses on fire.

        @Lanka Perera you are quite right. But the reason there hasn’t been any apology from the Muslim politicians should not come to you as a surprise. Muslims are generally beyond reasoning when it comes to their religion. They are NOT driven by rational thinking, but by what’s written in the Quran and dictated by the Saudis. The Quran explicitly states to kill the infidels (non- believers) ie Buddhists, Hindus, Jews and Christians. All this talk of integration, secularism etc is a facade to buy time. As they can’t think for themselves, they will take up arms and kill at the first opportunity in the name of Allah. Or else, why do you think they recovered so many swords from Mosques? To cut grass I suppose?

Hmmm, maybe it was their way of arming themselves and protecting themselves from the Sinhala Buddhists mobs who have been burning their Mosques, attacking their homes and businesses, and killing them in their Mosques like they did in Althugama…..did you ever consider that, or is your mind full of anti Muslim BS, you cannot comprehend?

      “Religion is the opiate of the masses” -Philosopher (lover of wisdom) Karl Marx,

      The Wahhabi-Salafists are stoned with opium, and follow Satan, per prescient Hadith of Najd. For you to brand ALL Muslims as terrorists for the actions of the Satan following Wahhabi-Salafis, is a travesty of justice. Can we call All Sri Lankans as terrorists, just because the Sri Lankan Wahhabi Salafis are Sri Lankans ? No.

      One needs to be specific. It was NOT not the Muslims or the Sri Lankans who did the terrorism. It was the Wahhabi Salafis. Wahhabi -Salafis also carry out terrorist attacks against Sufis , Shia, Ahmedias and even against other Muslims who do not follow their Satanic ideology.

      Where would they end up after they all die? Oxidized, if cremated, or consumed by earthly microorganisms? Not in Nirvana, Nibbana, Heaven or Hell?

      There is evidence from Islamic sources, above Hadith, that the Wahhabi-Salafies will end up in Hell -Fire.

    It would be brilliant and a natural reaction from India to welcome Gotaby to India and for premier Modi to visit Lanka as soon as the new President is in place. Lankan destiny is closely tied to India and the Hindutva movement is the natural reaction of India to decades of ridiculous tolerance to the scourge of radical Jihadi Islamic fanaticism and open, organized population explosion of Moslems to numerically dominate India. Lanka has the same issues and they should work together to fight the Jihadi maniacs of Easter Sunday and other terror activities. Both countries are a wonderful duo who can become first world countries in a short time while decadent, Moslem infested Pakistan stays a medieval hell hole steeped in backward, barbaric Islamic traditions and terrible hatred of the Kaffir world, providing state refuge to terrorists such as Osma bin Laden. More power to Modi, Rajapaksa and people of India and Lanka.

But perhaps it is important for those of us who dont subscribe to these visceral condemnations of whole communities, to realise that we may be in a minority and should write future.

    To the writers point:

    “A report by the data-based news organisation India Spend found that “Muslims were the target of 51% of violence centred on bovine issues over nearly eight years (2010 to 2017) – and they comprised 84% of 25 Indians killed in 60 incidents. As many as 97% of these attacks were reported after Narendra Modi’s government came to power in May 2014.”

    An elderly man was pulled by his beard and dragged through a field, blood dripping from his face
    One would have expected the prime minister to call for an end to this violence. Yet a week after the attacks in Hapur, Jayant Sinha, one of the most important ministers in Modi’s cabinet, honoured eight convicts accused of lynching and killing a Muslim man. This is not an isolated incident. In 2015, soon after the conservative BJP came to power, a legislator from the party honoured the body of someone accused of a similar assault with the national flag”
    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jul/20/mobs-killing-muslims-india-narendra-modi-bjp

    Modi is a racist. He did nothing when over thousand of Muslims were massacred, including women raped, and burnt, when he was a Minister:

    From another Guardian article:
    “Let’s look at the carnage of 2002 first. On 27 February that year, a train coach carrying Hindu pilgrims caught fire in Godhra station in Gujarat. Fifty-eight people died. Within hours and without a shred of evidence, Modi declared that the Pakistani secret services had been to blame; he then had the charred bodies paraded in the main city of Ahmedabad; and let his own party support a state-wide strike for three days. What followed was mass bloodshed: 1,000 dead on official estimates, more than 2,000 by independent tallies. The vast majority of those who died were Muslim. Mobs of men dragged women and young girls out of their homes and raped them. In 2007, the investigative magazine Tehelka recorded boasts from some of the ringleaders. One, Babu Bajrangi, boasted of how he slit open the womb of a pregnant woman.”

    • 16
      23

      By my count, at least 4 Hasbara trolls lurking here. They are pro Israel/pro India trolls attacking Muslims, because the writer stated facts that Modi ignored the 2nd largest religion in India.

      “Islam is the second largest religion in India, with 14.2% of the country’s population or roughly 172 million people identifying as adherents of Islam (2011 census). It makes India the country with the largest Muslim population outside Muslim-majority countries.”

      That also explains Israel’s interference in our nation, and their paid trolls inserting themselves in our affairs, promoting hatred against Muslims in Sri Lanka. Reject these hateful creatures spreading poison.

        • 11
          15

          Here are some facts for you to absorb and get enlightened:

          “A March report by Physicians for Social Responsibility calculates the body count of the Iraq War at around 1.3 million, and possibly as many as 2 million. However, the numbers of those killed in Middle Eastern wars could be much higher. In April, investigative journalist Nafeez Ahmed argued that the actual death toll could reach as high as 4 million if one includes not just those killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also the victims of the sanctions against Iraq, which left about 1.7 million more dead, half of them children, according to figures from the United Nations.”

The USCIRF chairman Tony Perkins called for the Indian government to take action to prevent further violence. “We condemn in the strongest terms this brutal murder, in which the perpetrators reportedly forced Ansari to say Hindu chants as they beat him for hours.”

      Soon after Modi was re-elected as the Prime Minister of India on May 23, he gave a conciliatory speech trying to reassure Muslims. But in the five years of Modi’s first term in power, hate crime against Muslims soared; data shows that some 90% of religious hate crimes in the last decade have occurred since Modi came to power.” Time Magazine

        The Western Commissions and media are lopsided in their opinions and you quote them to your benefit. When these very same people condemn Islamic violence, you condemn them. The brutal murders taking place are perpetrated by fringe extremists elements and they have been condemned by the Govt. and legal action taken against them. Such incidents are on the decline. Even Hindus who indulge in cow smuggling and slaughter have suffered. These are nothing compared to the kidnapping, forcible marriage and conversions of non-Muslim girls to Islam happening in Islamic Pakistan and to some extent Bangladesh. The minorities in Pakistan has come down from 23% at the time of partition to 4%. The minorities in India and Sri Lanka are so much better off than in most Islamic countries.

Gotabaya will be a strong leader. Netanyahu hopes to annex the Jordan valley. Once that is done, the delusion of a two state solution in Palestine is done.

      Perhaps Modi’s India has given good reasons for Muslims to be afraid:

      “Religious violence in India includes targeted violence against Muslims. There have been several instances of religious violence against Muslims since Partition of India in 1947, frequently in the form of violent attacks on Muslims by Hindu mobs that form a pattern of sporadic sectarian violence between the Hindu and Muslim communities. Over 10,000 people have been killed in Hindu-Muslim communal violence since 1950 in 6,933 instances of communal violence between 1954 and 1982.[1]The causes of this violence against Muslims are varied. The roots are thought to lie in India’s history – resentment toward the Islamic conquest of India during the Middle Ages, policies established by the country’s British colonizers, and the violent partition of India into an Islamic state of Pakistan and a secular India with a Muslim minority. Many scholars believe that incidents of anti-Muslim violence are politically motivated and a part of the electoral strategy of mainstream political parties who are associated with Hindu nationalism like the Bharatiya Janata Party (political wing of  RSS). Other scholars believe that the violence is not widespread but that it is restricted to certain urban areas because of local socio-political conditions.”

      Instead of trying to unite the country, Modi does nothing when Muslims are killed whenever they are near a cow. They are dragged out of their homes and massacred. He stinks as a leader.
      The bigots are the ones who kill in large uncivilized mobs.

      Now you can stop the anti Muslim propaganda, and get educated.

        Menik, the religious violence in India was not one sided and Muslims also initiated and indulged in violence against Hindus. You conveniently refer to only Hindu mobs attacking Muslims whilst the vice-versa also had happened. In fact the worst violence that happened in post Independent India is that by Kashmiri Muslims on the original inhabitants of Kashmir, the Kashmiri Pandits & Sikhs in 1990. There were threats, incitement to violence against them demanding that they convert to Islam, leave or face death. Later these threats were converted to violence and killing. Nearly 500,000 of these Hindus had been forced out and are living as refugees in their own State. There were There are many anti-BJP pseudo scholars who try to sell the idea that BJP is responsible for anti-Muslim riots but nothing proven. Modi had been exonerated from any involvement in Gujarat riots. In fact there are Gujarati Muslims who vouch that Modi had taken as prompt an action as he could as CM to contain the violence. The cow vigilantism is not Modi’s doing. These are by fringe elements and they have been strongly condemned and action taken against them. Talking of bigots, they are found the most in Islamic countries. first educate yourself instead of advising others.

          Wikipedia can be edited and Malyali, Sri Lankan Muslims and Sinhalese are noted for going into the Wikipedia and editing what was originally written , to deny their Tamil origin. All genetic studies of the Sinhalese had come to the same conclusion that the Sinhalese are largely of Tamil descent and the Bengali contribution to the Sinhalese genetic make up is minor. The former Rajapakse government did not like this and conducted their own studies and surprise , surprise it shows Sinhalese are 72% Bengali, 16% Tamil and now even a Gujarati element found that was never there , even in your Mahavamsa fairy tale. Only Sinhalese racists and Fascists like you believe in this gerrymandered crap and try to promote this no one else. Bengali are not Indo Aryans but again a Dravidian or Dravido /Mongol people who speak an Indo Aryan language. It is recorded and a well known historical fact, that half the present day so called Sinhalese population are purely or largely descended from South Indian low castes and untouchables who were imported from the then Tamil country by the Portuguese and Dutch to work as indentured slave labour or do menial service jobs. The so called Sinhalese Karawa , Salagama , Durawe and many other service and low castes are the Sinhalised descendants of these low caste South Indian Tamil immigrants and now make up half the present day Sinhalese population. It is also a know fact that most of the present day Sinhalese upper Govigamma and aristocrats are descended from South Indian ( Tamil/Telugu) aristocratic families. Especially the Kandyan variety. Many Sinhalese Govigamma names are a Tamil who is who. Leaving this the rest the of Sinhalese are descended from native Tamil or semi Tamil speaking indigenous Dravidian tribes like Naga and Yakka ( mainly Yakka) and Indian immigrants and invaders again largely from the Tamil country.

Muslimisnot a race. SriLankan Muslims are Tamil speaking people. The word Tamils includesHindus,Christians,Catholics and Islamists. Betternot confusethe people. Modi has greeted Gota
    afterhe won his Presidential election. Modi also included Sinhalese language at Buddha Gaya – a sign of goodgesture. Modi is concerned that peace should prevail in SAARC countries It is for this reason he wanted the implementation of the 13th Amendment. 13th Amendment is not against the Tamil speaking Islamists. Strictly speaking 13th Amendment allows room fortransparency and monitoring of terrorist activities. Had the 13th Amendment been implemented Saharan & company would have got caught.

        If the 13th amendment was implemented fully which includes North-East merger and police and land powers, it would have been under Tamil rule. They would have disarmed all Muslim home guards who were trained and funded by Sinhalese rulers to kill and drive away Tamils. All agents of Pakistani intelligence would have been arrested and imprisoned. Also Sinhalese government would not have been able to fund or support Muslim terror group like Zaharan. When Tamils and some Muslims complained about Muslim terror activity in the east, Tamil government would have acted and eliminated them. Zaharan is a creation of Gota/Mahinda rule, and with the connivance of Sirisena, they were used to carry out bombings. Tamil government would have arrested all three and put them in prison unlike the corrupt spineless Sinhalese government who turned a blind eye to the atrocity.

              ‘Islamophobia or Muslims in general’ should have read ‘Islamophobia or generalised attacks on Muslims’.

              Read Menik’s comments carefully. It is highly selective, one sided, hateful and extreme. The reality is more complex. He called the Jews ‘pariahs’. He wants them kicked out of Israel. He attacks Buddhist monks as ‘saffron thugs’. He demeans Hindus. Unless these are your views too.

              By the way, I am under no compulsion to reveal my identity just as much as he hasn’t.

              Good question Manel. Anyone with half a brain can see who the haters are. They must think there are imbeciles in this country.
              They attack Muslims and their religion, and call those who respond with FACTS, the haters. I don’t know why CT allows these trolls to infest this website. Attacks on religions especially false information should be banned. I have seen these paid trolls operate in other nations too. I doubt they are succeeding in their hate campaign.

          They are organized paid trolls. You have to respond with facts, which they don’t seem to be able to. They lurk like filthy germs infesting websites and comments sections around the world, and seize the opportunity whenever an article appears about Muslims, even positive ones, to write their drivel, which is simply to make the religion look “evil”, some even quoting the Quran.
          They are Islamaphobic and have the same talking points and buzz words. As you can see they have strange admiration for Israel, most probably because they were trained by them. In this case it is highly possible these are Indian germs, as you can see the hatred for Pakistan in many of the comments. India loves Israel and are buddies working together, and India buys Israeli weapons.

    Simple. All the world knows that the Sri Lankan or Eelam Tamils from the NE are indigenous to the island and have a far ancient history than the Sinhalese and have been living in their lands and ruling themselves , until European colonisation from ancient times with a recorded history of 2300 years at least. The history of Tamil and Hinduism ( Saivaism) in the island is far more ancient than Sinhalese and Buddhism and predates both. Just like the Sinhalese who largely evolved from the converted indigenous Tamil Naga/Yakka Buddhist converts and other indigenous tribes and Indian immigrants, again largely from the Tamil country. they belong to the land and should have the same right as the Sinhalese. The Sri Lankan Muslims on the other hand are not . They are an immigrant group , who only arrived not from any part of the Arabian Gulf, Western Asia /North Africa but from the Tamil parts of South India. They are not indigenous to the land but immigrants , descended from refugees and petty traders . The vast majority of them , especially the ones living in the Sinhalese areas , arrived here , only during the late Dutch and early British colonial period. They are not an ethnic group , as being a Muslim is not an ethnic identity but a religious identity. Any one can be a Muslim. A white European , Arab . Turk. Malay , Indian , African. There is not such thing called a Muslim ethnicity.

      Wow, what ignorance. Tell that to the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world.. Tell them they do not exist.

        Yes they exist. Just like Christians , Hindus, Buddhists but as a religion not as a separate race or ethnicity. Islam is a religion , just like Christianity or Hinduism not an ethnicity or race. Just like the followers of Christianity and other religions , the adherents of Islam or Muslims belong to various races , ethnicities and sects. Not to some sort of single ethnicity or race like this man is trying to imply. They even go to war with each other in these basis. Only in Sri Lanka to deliberately divide and rule the Tamils , Tamil people following Islam have been classified as a separate ethnicity from the rest of the Tamils following Christianity or Hinduism. Unlike in many other lands , where Muslims belonged to different ethnicities , linguistic groups and even followed different forms of Islam. It was easy, as 99% of the Muslims in the island were Tamils , speaking Tamil and following the same form of Islam. so it was easy to lump them all together into this so called artificial Muslim ethnicity than in reality was a religious identity. It they were speaking other languages and belonged to different ethnicities or sects . This so called Muslim ethnicity would not been possible. This is why the Malays , Borah , and other Indian and Pakistani Muslims weren’t lumped into this so called Muslim ethnicity. They are also Muslims. They are identified correctly by their ethnicity and language and not by their religion. Then to justify this artificially created ethnicity , the Tamil speaking but Arab origin myth and the name Moor, that was incorrectly given to them by the Portuguese to denote their religion and not their race was maintained.

        What I write is connected as he is trying to imply the island’s Muslims are different from the Tamils , when in reality they are not and the Indians and others are aware of it. They are part of the Tamils . They are not of Arab or any other descent but are largely descended from converted immigrant Dravidian South Indian origin Hindu Tamils. Yes there is some Arab , Afghan, North Indian and even African and other origins in them. However this in only confined to a few hundred families out of a population of 2 million Sri Lankan Muslims. and is around 2% the most., Even these people are also of predominant Dravidian Tamil heritage. A little bit of Arab or anything else amongst very small percentage does not make these families nor the Sri Lankan Muslims Arabs or Moors or anything else . They are still Tamils who follow Islam. South Indian origin Durave, equivalent to Nalavars or Nadars ( tree climbers) amongst the Tamils , and other Sinhalese want these Tamil Sri Lankan Muslims to remain separate from the rest of the Tamils with their incorrect Moor name and fake Arab origin , as it suits your divide and rule policy. You even encouraged their Arabisation and radicalisation , using it as a tool to marginalise the Tamils , especially in the Tamil east never thinking it will also affect the Sinhalese. This is what happens when you thing of evil things. It comes back to you.

    Hindutva was brought to Sri Lanka by Subramaniam Swami, the best buddy of Mahinda Rajapakse. It was Mahinda Rajapakse, when he was a member of the Parliament during Yahapalana Govt, who went to India at the invitation of his best buddy whom he keeps on his head and dance Subramaniam Swami to address the Hindutva gathering. There is no point in blaming Modi, its Mahinda who brought Hindutva and Swami started a branch in Sri Lanka under the blessing of Mahinda.

      Sinhalese took Muslim help to defeat LTTE. Now taking Hindutva help to stop Muslim extremism. Next to stop Hindutva progressing, who will help?
      .
      Throughout the history, this tiny Buddhist nation has been a prey for predators of different forms. Being in Sinhalese shoes, it makes sense; this is the only country that exists for Sinhalese of minuscule population, and they’re trying their best to protect it fearing extinction. I think minorities should understand this and avoid creating unnecessary doubts in their minds by being true Sri Lankans and be part of them to progress the country. Otherwise everybody’s productivity is wasted in doubting each toher.

        Do not expose your ignorance and spew false information and hatred. Modi does not allow killling of Muslims or any other. The killing of cow is banned in many States in India and those who resort to violence against cow killing or smuggling are fringe elements whose actions have been condemned by the Modi Govt. and legal action taken. It is the Muslims throughout history who have been violent against non-Muslims in India and destroyed their places of worship and indulged in forcible conversions. The majority voted for Modi because of the corruption in inaction of Congress Pary and the Opposition and also them trying to win votes by appeasing the minorities and neglecting the concerns of the majority.

    Latheef Farook the Sri Lankan Muslims are ethnically Thamizh , so when Modi or the Indian government speaks about Thamizh rights , he includes them. There is no such thing called a Muslim ethnicity or race. This so called Muslim race/ethnicity is deliberately encouraged by the Chingkallams and power hungry Islamic extremist Thullkans like you to deliberately divide the Thamizh . Only in Sri Lanka ,you find this sort of nonsense, in countries being Muslim is a religions and not a racial or ethnic identity. You Thullukans are ethnic Thamizh Muslims who migrated to the island a few centuries ago from South India and not from Saudi Arabia , Dubai, Oman, Iran, Iraq, or from Morocco. Go and look at your face in the mirror , does it even remotely resemble an Arab ? This is the same for more than 99% of the Thullukans. Please go and get a life , instead of creating unnecessary friction , especially when some extremist has come to power. Instead of unity amongst all Thamizh irrespective of religion . origin or caste . You trying to divide them and make Gotler’s and BBS task very easy/ Also remember the Eezhan Thamizh are indigenous to the island, have an ancient history and had their own land . They were a nation until the British decided otherwise in 1833. You Thullkans are not. Just recent immigrants from South India and the ones in the east only arrived there is refugees fleeing the Portuguese. Trying to compare yourselves with Eelam Thamizh is ridiculous. Converted Dravidian immigrants and refugees from South India claiming the same status and the lands of an indigenous Thamizh population , as they think they can do this and get away with it.

      “Dec 4 (Island) Britain’s Conservative Party, in its election manifesto launched on Sunday, said that it supports a two-state solution for Sri Lanka.”

      My friend the old Codger sent me the following clarification from the Conservative Deputy Chairman Paul Scully is as follows:

      “To be absolutely clear, the two- state line was intended to refer only to the Israel-Palestine situation in the Middle East (as is stated policy). The commitments on Sri Lanka and Cyprus were simply about continuing existing efforts to support peace and reconciliation in divided societies.”

      Burt there is no two state solution for Sri Lanka in the pipeline unless the Sinhala/Buddhists desperately go for a final solution for the minorities under Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer – “One People, One Empire, One Leader” fascist doctrine.

        Two state solution is not practical for Sri Lanka and not feasible for Tamils. The country is too small and a good portion of Tamils are settled outside N/E although you have property and roots in N/E.

          “Two state solution is not practical for Sri Lanka and not feasible for Tamils.”

          Anything is possible on this day in time.
          I am not interested in two state solution however it appears the Sinhala/Buddhist noisy fascists are pushing for it. They falsely believe their little ein Führer won the war in 2009 and his little brother ein Führer the II could make and protect a monolithic state on this island. For example Pakistan was divided when Army was in control. The Sinhala/Buddhist fascists refuse to “live and let others live”. Unless these fascists learn to respect “OTHERS” in every aspect of their life, separation would be inevitable.

          We can discuss the viability of two state solution some other time. Size does not matter. A political arrangement applicable to the entire island with Federal devolved powers would free the people from the shackles (of stupid greedy inefficient corrupt …. irresponsible ) of central government could unleash the full potential of each citizen.

          The asses who are sitting on their brain in Colombo are only interested in their income earned mostly unearned, perks, powers, …………… hence keep a tight control on the rest of the population preventing the entire country from moving along development path and individual entrepreneurship, initiative, technological innovation, …. … forcing them to race to the bottom.

          The much repeated nonsense, this is a Sinhala/Buddhist country, majoritarianism, the culture of crooks, saffron brigade, sangha approving fascism, nepotism, … the armed forces could do no wrong, …. will not even allow the country to reach Rostow’s Take-Off Stage of Economic Growth.

    I didn’t know Zaharan and Inbrahim Boys were a small group of Sinhala Buddhist Racists..
    Wonder whether they were using alias names, like Dr Ranil’s CID Inspector Adriana Candappa.

    Anyway more important issues facing our 7 Million is how Modi is going to retry to push that Hindian 13 A down their throats.

    Our inhabitants today are not the same as the Inhabitants when Dr Ranil and Cousin Whisky madam were batting for us.

    Seven Million joined hands this time to not only kick out Dr Ranil and his Yahapalanistas ,but also told the LTTE proxy Politicians in clear cut terms that 72% of the inhabitants are not going to settle in only Two Third of the Land .
    And allow Vellala Politicians to have the 1/3 as well as their Multi Million Land holding in the South ..

    Modi, I am sure is aware of it ,specially after Nandasena gave that interview to the Hindu in India.

    I am not surprised Modi didn’t mention Lateef’s clan, because Modi also won without even one vote from Hindian Muslims.

    Muslims who hid behind Dr Ranil after Easter were well supported by the Tamil Politicians of the Vella Parties. at our last Election.

    Tamil LeaderMr Sampathar always wanted the Muslims to be under him.
    Now looks like is has happened if Modi’s quip to President Nandsena is real..

    So Latheefs should tell their Leaders Bathudeen, Hakeem , Haleem . Hasheem, Rahuman , Marrickar ect, to make sure , they get a fair share of the East at least, if and when Modi comes to do a deal on behalf of the Diaspora, Naduans and the TNA.

    —-
    The whole world knows this fabricated story because ‘Para’ Demalu made this story and spread it around the world to justify their bogus claim ‘Traditional Homeland’. If you turn the earth in any place in North East, what you find is archeological evidences of Sinhala Buddhist Heritage. North East of the country is the cradle of Sinhala Buddhist Civilization which was destroyed by Dravida barbarian invaders.
    There are no Tamils in Sinhale. The self-claim Tamils are Dravidians brought to this country from Malabar. The language spoken by these Malabar Demalu is a hoch-poch of Dravidian languages and not Tamil. Only indigenous people in Sinhale are Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo. All the others are ‘Para’.

    Again these Sri Lankan Muslim turncoats are as usual trying to sabotage and undermine the island’s Tamils and prevent them getting them their just rights like a typical dog in the manager. Just like they have always done from the time of independence in the name of Islam and their laughable Arabian Nights Fairy Tale claim to an exclusive Arab origin , that only these poor delusional brainwashed creatures actually believe that they have, when it is very obvious to everyone else that they are nothing but Dravidian Tamil Hindu converts to Islam. That too not local Tamils but immigrant Tamils from South India. A few Arab sailors and traders , over a span of a few centuries , arriving on the shores of South India and mating with some local low caste Tamil comfort women and producing a few half castes , does not qualify them to claim for any sort of Arab ancestry. If I was a by product of this ancestry , I will die of shame and try to hide this and not brag around and claim this miniscule amount of Arab, as my exclusive heritage. This is what brainwashing does to you. First these Sri Lankan Muslims joined the Sinhalese in the name of their religion and their Arabian Fairy Tale or Fake Moor ancestry to discriminate , marginalize and commit war crimes , structural genocide and ethnic cleansing on the Island’s Tamils , despite being Tamil themselves. Then during the LTTE war , they again sabotaged every effort for peace, by demanding to be part of the peace talks , and deliberately sabotaging everything , like a party pooper. They did not want peace , as they were benefitting immensely when the Sinhalese and Tamils were at war and did not want it to stop.

    Whilst Modi’s Hindu nationalism and Gothabaya’s Sinhala nationalism are dangerous for the minorities in their respective countries, this article is all over the place and does not make a sensible argument.
    Look who eventually benefitted from the Easter attacks and you will most likely find who was really behind the attacks. Like others have already posted, Muslims (and Tamils) in Sri Lanka need to worry about the Sinhala nationalists not Modi. Sri Lankans don’t vote in Indian elections, so Modi doesn’t need to keep the nationalists in Sri Lanka happy, just the nationalists in India.

      Well, how about a religious scholar addressing the violence part:

      Some critics of religion such as Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer argue that all monotheistic religions are inherently violent. For example, Nelson-Pallmeyer writes that “Judaism, Christianity and Islam will continue to contribute to the destruction of the world until and unless each challenges violence in ‘sacred texts’ and until each affirms nonviolent, including the nonviolent power of God.”[7]

      Bruce Feiler writes of ancient history that “Jews and Christians who smugly console themselves that Islam is the only violent religion are willfully ignoring their past. Nowhere is the struggle between faith and violence described more vividly, and with more stomach-turning details of ruthlessness, than in the Hebrew Bible”.[8] Similarly, Burggraeve and Vervenne describe the Old Testament as full of violence and evidence of both a violent society and a violent god. They write that, “[i]n numerous Old Testament texts the power and glory of Israel’s God is described in the language of violence.” They assert that more than one thousand passages refer to YHWH as acting violently or supporting the violence of humans and that more than one hundred passages involve divine commands to kill humans.[9]

India’s leaders are trying to act big, but heart of hearts they know they know that ‘little’ Sri Lanka cannot be pushed around anymore. The Tamils lost their way in May 2009, and the Muslims last Easter Sunday. A lot of trust needs to be regained before a SL President can embrace them back into the fold anytime soon.

    Mr. Latheef Faruk, failed to acknowledge the element of Zahrani co-conspirators like Rauf Hakim, Rishad Badudin, Asat Saley, Hisbulah & All Ceylon Mullahs who are actually ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’, and as to how much of a fascist ideology they were pushing & laundering money under various nefarious activities. Country’s Muslims images are tarnished because of what these scoundrels did over the past several years, today an average Muslim is worried. Even if Rajapakses want to show them little mercy, the Mahasanga don’t want these politicians get closer to them. Muslims should now choose new Politicians and new religious Clerics to represent them through mainstream parties like SLPP/SLFP, JVP or even the soon to be defunct UNP.

    It is important to note that it is not RSS Indians or Mossad agents who blew themselves up and killed 250 largelly sinhalese chritians in the churches. The people who did it were Muslims of the local type with support of islamic organizations worldwide. let us not lose the plot.

      What connections did they have to any worldwide organizations?

      You should do some serious research before making false claims.
      We still don’t know who trained and supported them, although a Minister in Parliament stated that the new President funded them.

      “Sri Lanka’s Easter attacks that killed more than 250 people were carried out by local groups who drew inspiration from, but were not directly linked to, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS) group, a Sri Lankan investigator has said.

      Ravi Seneviratne, head of the Sri Lankan police Criminal Investigation Department (CID), made the remarks on Wednesday in a meeting with the country’s parliamentary panel investigating the security and intelligence lapses that led to the April 21 bombings.

      Seneviratne said the suicide bombers who targeted three churches and three hotels had no direct link to the foreign armed group.”

      Don’t go making false claims, and spreading malicious gossip.

    Latheef,

    The utter tripe you call an article is racist, tunnel-visioned, and offensive to any right-thinking person. I say this without any prejudice towards Muslims in general. I accept that Christians, Jews, Hindus and Buddhists have committed great crimes in the past, just like Muslims have. My problem is the prejudice shown in YOUR article.

    – You speak about Modi spreading Hindutva facism in this island. Yet the only ‘evidence’ you present for that is the fact that Modi stressed Tamil rights and not Muslim rights, and some weird conspiracy theories which you claim is ‘common knowledge’.

    – You expecting Modi to speak for Muslim rights is as ridiculous as a Hindu expecting Pakistan to champion Hindu rights in Sri Lanka. Has that ever happened?? (there are Hindus in Pakistan, you know). Modi should sure treat all his citizens fairly, but championing Muslim rights in a foreign country is not his job and he has every right not to do it. I am yet to hear any big Muslims countries, the Saudis for example who are guardians of Mecca, championing Muslim rights in Sri Lanka. How come that does not bother you? The truth is that they don’t give a shit about you Brown Muslims and they do not consider you guys as their equals. Why don’t you wail about that instead?

    -As for ‘common knowledge’, let me tell you what is ‘common knowledge’. Common knowledge is that the madmen who blew themselves up and killed innocents were Muslims. That cannot be denied. It is true that a lot of Muslims showed remorse for it but in YOUR article you show no remorse or acceptance of this fact. Instead you try to blame Jews, Westerners and whoever. That is not common knowledge – that is, at best, a line of thinking – a possibility which can only be thought up with an unhealthy dose of bias, whispered only by die-hard Muslim apologists without an iota of evidence (funnily, this also reminds me of some die-hard LTTE supporters trying to blame the CIA, Israel and what not for the killing of Rajiv). That is offensive to the victims. First accept who is PRIMARILY responsible – the guys who pulled the trigger. Those were MUSLIMS.

    – I do not consider every Muslim a terrorist. It is equally true that not every Hindu, not every Buddhist, and not every Jew is a terrorist. But you speaking about Hinduthva Facism and Zionist terrorism in the same breadth as the Easter bombings, with no word about ISLAMIC TERRORISM, is a bit too grand. That shows you up as a total lowlife. I hope you are not going to claim that Zahran was really a Jew pretending to be a Muslim or something.

    Modi and the Zionists are no angels but what they do to Muslims in their own countries is hardly relevant to Sri Lanka. You cannot use the blood of innocents, killed by MUSLIM TERRORISTS, to attack Modi, without any acknowledgement that the primary killers were your co-religionists. That is bigoted. That is disgusting. Finally, that line of writing does not serve the Muslims of this emarald island in any way.
