ISIS – Islamic State In Sri Lanka

By Muhammed Fazl

“Do not try to demolish a false set of beliefs except after building a correct set of beliefs [in the populace] – Imam Hassan Al-Banna

Quick to distance from, does the four letters ‘ISIS’ really spell danger for the Muslims or for them to be apologists and be all defensive just at the mere mention of it? While I am yet to understand the now-fashionable practice of Muslims being answerable to or compromising their faith and religious practices to suit misguided adherents of different faiths, instead of contributing towards an unjust society of immorality and lawlessness, I believe it is time the followers of Islam stood their ground and for the rest of the world to start learning that which was revealed over 14 centuries ago.

Unlike most philosophies and rituals-only beliefs in present times, Islam being a complete source of guidance and teaching a comprehensive set of laws, little wonder that it has become the fastest growing and the most popular religion in the world. One may mythicize the sheer number as a result of ‘conversion by the sword’, but would it be remotely possible for a religion of peace to be spread by the sword?

History has taught us that non-Muslims living under Islamic rule were always treated with respect. When Muslims ruled Spain for over 800 years, the non-Muslims living there flourished. When India was under Muslim rule for about a thousand years, had it been ruled by the sword, there wouldn’t be 85% non-Muslim population today either. No Muslim army has ever invaded Indonesia (where it now has the largest Muslim population in the world) or the Muslim majority Malaysia. Likewise, no Muslim army was ever sent to the East Coast of Africa either.

Gnanasara BBSIn reality, the religion of peace spread much faster during periods of peace than during times of wars.  An article which appeared in Reader’s Digest Yearbook of 1986 gives the statistics of the increase of the percentage of the major religions which indicated the Muslim population increasing by 235% while Christianity increased by 47% during a ‘no Islamic conquest’ period between 1934 and 1984. Even though Islam continued to spread when Muslims were not prevailing economically, socially or politically, it is an irrefutable fact that it was the force of truth, reason and logic that was responsible for the rise as seen today. While there is an indication of certain periods where Muslim rulers have been intolerant of other faiths and its adherents, it was indeed due to a deviation from Islamic principles rather than being in conformity with the edicts of Holy Quran or the traditions of the Prophet of Islam.

Societal Collapse

Ranked 9th among the top ten countries in the world for the highest cases of rape, ranked 4th highest for cases of suicides, ranked as the 4th biggest boozing nation in the world and the intended casino paradise and that which comes along the side industry of prostitution, would this be the trend in store for the future generation of this country?

Falsely portrayed as secular to the unsuspecting, successive governments have all played the Sinhala Buddhist card all along to stay in power, sometimes resulting in devastating consequences especially for the minorities. Having learned a little late to be safe than sorry, recent communal/racist attacks seems to have taught minority communities not to be reliant on the Sinhalese dominated security forces for protection. Deep-rooted racist mentalities of the legislators in the parliament seems to be of no consolation either for the minorities, either due to absence of equal opportunities or due to failures on the part of the state to re-distribute wealth equally.

While the Mahanayakes of the four Chapters seems to be dozing off in their luxurious enclaves when the country situation is in tatters, the Catholic high priests seems to be excited only with the arrival of the Pope while paying scant regard to the ploy of President Rajapaksa (MR) who shortened the campaign period of the opposition parties and for using the Pope’s visit as an excuse. The ‘pedophiles-shielding’ pseudo men of faith they are, they should have postponed the visit knowing very well the harm that could befall the country if MR is allowed another term.

The Tamil National Alliance (TNA) or the Hindu clergy seems to be doing no favors to the country either with their activities restricted to matters concerning only their community and or the Northern Peninsula. The opportunists they are, leadership of the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC), All Ceylon Muslim Congress (ACMC) and the ‘Muslim’ members of parliament representing the Rajapaksa government are performing no better either and it seems they are interested only in personal financial gains and plump positions, thus playing in to the hands of MR by dividing the Muslim community and their voter base.

In a country where its own adherent pay lip service to its teachings or donate only loose change to their places of worship for its upkeep, I question the wisdom behind governments giving a ‘foremost’ position to Buddhism. Recently Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa claimed to have donated 30 million of public money for making cosmetic changes to a temple belonging to a politically allied monk. That is well and fine. But as a Muslim, my point of contention here is, WHY SHOULD Muslims contribute towards extravagant tamashas associated with a different religion? If maintaining places of worship is the responsibility of the state, I believe funds should be allocated proportionately taking in to account the population percentage of all communities. Believing tax collected by the state should be spent accordingly, would it also be wise to pay corporate and personal taxes knowing well that it would be used to fund a lavish lifestyle of a corrupt few? In this scenario and with prevalent marginalization of minorities, would the lower-end segment of the minority communities receive their fair share of state benefits as well?

When politicians are being traded regularly between political parties for selfish gains and or with minimum educational qualifications or integrity, would it also be sensible for the self-respecting kind or the victimized to seek fairness or justice from the existing system when one’s rights are infringed upon? Corrupt to the core, public money being swindled, the judiciary made insignificant and lawlessness reigning, does it not arise the need for the country to adopt an alternative source of governance?

Serendipity In Serendib

Stressing once again my belief that Democracy in Sri Lanka has been a failure, and where popularity reigns over competence and where might is right, it has become imperative for rules to be changed since ‘demography’ too seems to have changed. Having been inspired by the great thinker Seyyed Qutb who once said “It is impossible for life to not affect faith, or for faith to have a separate existence away from life”, I believe all Muslims (Moor, Malays, Bohras, Memons) living in Sri Lanka should come under one Imam (Caliph to be precise) towards fulfilling their purpose of creation and for establishing social justice within the community if not in the country.

Likewise, I believe the Buddhist, Hindu and the Christian communities too should come under one priest or leader, guiding their faithful and creating a sense of unity at least within their communities. Should there be a conflict between communities of different faiths, there should be an environment where respected and learned leaders of respective communities coming together and resolving matters in a peaceful and an amicable manner. It is said that all religions teaches us good things in life and the fact that there is always a solution for every man-made complication. So why not appoint ONE respected spiritual/religious leader to represent each religious community?

Representing the Islamic faith and community in Sri Lanka, I believe Muslims should be taught, guided and ruled by (where it is possible) Islamic teachings and laws. While there is no need for no alarm bells to ring in the minds of the non-Muslim population, the Islamic system should be aggressively pursued as the best alternative in creating a society with good moral values, honest business practices and an impartial justice system among others. To set the ball rolling, I sincerely hope the following will get the attention of religious leaders in the Muslim community,

1. Family disputes, marital discord etc. to be taken to a local Muslim Qazi (judge) and for it to be resolved based on the teachings of Islam, either voluntarily or when reported by a 3rd party.

2. Vigilante squads to be set up to monitor clothing attire and crackdown on indecent and revealing clothes worn in public by Muslims.

3. If Halal certifications cannot be enforced publicly, all food products manufactures/importers should give assurances to a Muslim Halal regulatory body (in private at least) of adhering to Halal requirements and give access to verify the process when required.

4. Irrespective of what school they attend, private or otherwise, Muslim, Buddhist or Christian, making sure that every Muslim girl who attains the age of puberty is allowed to wear clothes in conformance to the teachings of Islam.

5. Financial disputes to be settled first in the presence of a Muslim Qazi, thus safeguarding the respect of all parties concerned. The present Roman Dutch law system usually takes years for any kind of justice to be meted out and it will also be a burden if every dispute is to be addressed in the present day over-crowded courts of law.

6. Apart from the regular corporate/personal taxes paid to the government, all Zakath money (obligatory annual charity tax of 2.5% of all income/assets) to be pooled in to one fund and distributed to a list of deserving poor recipients. While each donor can nominate names of recipients, the Zakath Committee should have the final say in the redistribution of wealth.

7. Law enforcement units or civil defense forces within the community to be created in each town in partnership with the state law-enforcement authorities. While this may reduce the burden on the country’s Police Department, in the event of clashes, the Muslim community will be in a better position to maintain peace and since they are usually the ‘lamb to the slaughter’.

8. To establish enforcement teams to assure that every child receives education up to a secondary level and that no child from no community is employed in any sector if they are under the age of 16.

9. Religious education should be made compulsory for all Muslim children, be it at a secular school or afterwards in a seminary/mosque/institute.

10. Establish a monitoring committee to prevent fanaticism or violent radicalism taking roots in the minds of the Muslim youths.

While the list is too long to be written here, it must be mentioned that terrorists and criminals are created and never born. While it is no secret that certain violent Sinhalese Buddhist movements like the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) have aligned themselves with the regime of President Rajapaksa and is fuelling an inevitable human disaster, as a counter measure, the rise of a violent Islamic movement and in the lines of the ISIS of Babylonia cannot be discounted in the event President Rajapaksa is allowed another term. On the other hand, the ‘unknown angels’ they are, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena and Mr. Ranil Wickremesinghe seems to have impeccable credentials and honesty in their respective political careers and I believe minorities, especially the Muslims and Tamils should reject the ‘known devil (MR) for good.

January 08, 2015, just maybe the day that determines the country heralding a prosperous and a just society or the day the country reverts to an anarchist and a lawless one. Either case, the call for the establishment of  a borderless Islamic State for the Muslims seems to be louder than ever now, and believing it would be in the best interests of detractors, especially the pseudo ‘Muslim’ politicians to stay out of the way when establishing divine laws of God, the following verse just happened to cross my thoughts,

“Permission [to fight] has been given to those who are being fought, because they were wronged. And indeed, Allah is competent to give them victory” – 22:39 Al-Quran.

      Taraki,

      “This is a Sinhala Buddhist country.”

      Says who? Sri Lanka is an amalgamated country by the colonial powers. This was why the 1948 constitution recognised the diversity and aimed to protect and build a just nation! People like you want to turn that into a Sinhala Buddhist country exclusively. This will not succeed you mark my word!

      No it is not and never been aSinhala/Buddhist country.

      However the descendants of Kallathonies Sinhala/Buddhists are making this country into a parochial Sinhala/Buddhist racist ghetto.

      The possibilities striking, soon this country could become a Hindi/Buddhist country.

      Sri Lanka is a Sinhala-Buddhist country? LOL

      Among the Arabs in Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka is known as the country of maid servants. Tens of thousands of Sinhala-Buddhist women are working as slaves in the Arab-Muslim countries to maintain Sri Lanka’s economy. The only thing that the Sinhala-Buddhists have taken from Buddha is his begging bowl to beg the whole world.

      Leelage Malli,

      “Dear Brother”..?

      Brother is beautiful word. And brotherhood is a beautiful thing.

      However, when used in the context of religious fundamentalism this beautiful word resonates with medieval barbarism. Man’s cruelty against fellow man. In the name of religion. Examples galore!

      Just last month alone global Jihadists have murdered more than 5000 civilians worldwide. Trying to enforce their version of Islam. Through sheer barbarism, fear and incredible lack of respect for human life.

      So much for “Brotherhood”..ha!

      Cheers!

      PS: Muhammed Fazl is now by his own admission an Islamist. A political Islamist at that. No secular Muslim. His solution is Islamism in governance. Sharia as law. And propagation of Islam to save mankind.

      I respect his right to be religious. However, I categorically reject lethal mixing of religion and politics in public affairs. Will only lead to a medieval bloodbath. Just look at the world.

      Then again extremely religious men & women embrace death. More than life.

      Yet another reason why a modern society must nip mixing of politics & religion in the bud.

        Salaam Bieji,

        There was no necessity for that frenzy by juxtaposing `hood` fascist visor wearing don hurling.

        It’s very clear from the poor soul that faith is only a journey with hope and a panacea for the great ills the friendly Muslims have succumbed to.
        It is not their destination.

        Go anoint yourself it’s Friday as they could even eat you for condemning them because as you mention it’s medieval barbarism.

        they seem to live in this age of value judgements as success which is very true in a global village too.

              You have probably had firsthand experience with them. You do sound pretty satisfied. Were you?

              What was it exactly? The “privilege” or the tips? Did they confirm the attraction to your tone of skin?

              Please do keep these matters to yourself though Javi.

              I believe in full freedom for all sexual minorities. But, according to ex-President of the Islamic state of Iran, there is no homosexuality in Iran. Zero. Nothing. Confirmed. Wow!

                Its just that I happen to know- I wont give you much details but if translated it is the Border Force the most dreaded of the forces and work alongside EU. you would be surprised that we have the details of almost every smuggler and terrorist network that operated in eu from lanka- sihal, tamil, muslim. (Its easy you folk don’t speak other languages when talked or checked that is when things go in discreetly- not for sale security of natives alone not even immigrants). Chueca is the gay borough where all festivals are organised in the arts etc.As a Spanish national I must know more than a kalu pukka fascist.

                Anyway you are a confirmed Fascist attacking the tamil speaking muslims, and all tamil speakers.

                Are you not a disenchanted David Blacker with a plus to fascism (David has found solace in a muslim wife) because you are a lonely sihala speaking burgher/tamil. which other language do you speak in Australia the land of thieves??

                  Belonging to a sexual minority is nothing to be ashamed or scared of. Not anymore. Not in this day and age. In the modern, civilized world.

                  Unless of course you live in a jam-packed closet. Somewhere in one of those so called “Islamic States”. Run by absolute lunatics. Dreaming of a medieval Caliphate.

You are either unable to visualise whom you are talking to because you cannot be scientific but hearsay. Your education proves that.
                    We don’t need to be gay – the age of consent is 13 over here. and most of those gays etc. are imports from Ireland Hungary etc that perform. The few who are either lesbian or gay are generally of the same race as I know.

                    My issue with you is that you are a fascist that’s a big sickness you must get rid of or you may die disenchanted man. I generally don’t enter a subject if I have not had a good study- yours almost all your comments for at least 2 years.

                    I dont get angry and if i do then I would confuse myself which I rarely do.
                    i am very analytical and believe in contingencies because human nature is unpredictable.

        I believe even if you sound to be against Muslim folks, I would not. I represent the sinhalesae fraction that consider we all have same blood us being one nation /srilanken. It is high time to see in that way even if this is somewhat not practical so long our differences epitomize being allert to party politics and several other factors.

        Need of the hour is to go against Rajapakshe regardless of our caste, religon and creed and even other factors that keep us apart.

    A flutter of a butterfly in Peru and create a tornado in North America isn’t it really? Tiny cause-effect events reacting in a chain eventually cause a cataclysmic event down stream.

    The current ethnic dispensation is a direct result of the Maradana Resolution of ITAK back in 1952. The communalism of Tamils particularly from the north has had disastrous side effects. As if it hasn’t taught any lessons these Tamil fascists are still hasn’t changed course.

    I think they have arrived at the final fork in the road. The Tamil fascists either falls in line with My3 or suffer genocide with Mahinda. My3 movement has created somewhat of a new beginning. He offers an incredible opportunity not to be missed.

          They are blamed for their stupidity, voting for 8 measures of rice or a promise to provide free rice from moon.

            If they are to be blamed at all it is because they included Tamils, Muslims, Christians in every cabinet, council, ministry since independence. It is a well known fact that the king makers are the minorities, crossing over again and again for power and control. You can blame them especially Thonda.

    “Do not try to demolish a false set of beliefs except after building a correct set of beliefs [in the populace] – Imam Hassan Al-Banna”

    All religious beliefs are false beliefs, if the God who created us did not want to think and only believe somebody in the past, then the same God would not have given us the power to think and find out the truth about Nature.

    So please don’t talk about false beliefs and correct beliefs.

    We are literally groping in the dark trying to find out the truth bit by bit using the methodology of science.

    Religions are a curse on human beings, stunting the power of humans to think, luckily animals don’t have religions!

    What a load of rubbish this is.. Some interesting quotes here..

    “Likewise, no Muslim army was ever sent to the East Coast of Africa either.” — Just the Arab slave traders who put entire infidel villages in chains and marched them off into Slavery which incidentally is endorsed by the Koran unlike every other religion which found it abhorant.

    “When India was under Muslim rule for about a thousand years, had it been ruled by the sword, there wouldn’t be 85% non-Muslim population today either.” — Think you need to read about what Timur and Aurangzeb did in India.

    “Unlike most philosophies and rituals-only beliefs in present times, Islam being a complete source of guidance and teaching a comprehensive set of laws, little wonder that it has become the fastest growing and the most popular religion in the world.” — How about the ritual that is exercised 5 times a day by every Moslem? The religion is growing in the west but mainly in prisons. Murderers and Child rapists are being told they can commit any crime they want as long as they pray 5 times a day. So they are quick to embrace it!

    The best quote is

    “2. Vigilante squads to be set up to monitor clothing attire and crackdown on indecent and revealing clothes worn in public by Muslims.” — So you think you have the right to walk around telling people what to wear and punish them if they dont listen? Listen. Anyone has the right to wear what they please whether it is a burkha or bikini. No one has the right to dictate to anyone else what they should wear. If you dont like it. Just look the other way.

    I really cannot see any difference between these Mullahs and the BBS. They are all religious fanatics who think they have a right to interfere with others’ personal freedoms. The same smelly tobacco, just different brands.

    “9. Religious education should be made compulsory for all Muslim children, be it at a secular school or afterwards in a seminary/mosque/institute.” —- Religious education is the one thing that should be removed from the curriculum and replaced with a third compulsory language. i.e. Tamil for Sinhalese and Sinhalese for Tamils and moslems. Religious education has shown time and again that it only entrenches divisions and obstructs cohesion. Religion should be taught by parents and not by devious small minded cergymen.

    On many other points the author’s views are sound. We basically need to create a state which gives space for Sri Lanka’s diverse peoples to observe their religious delusions peacefully without inconveniencing others who do not share their views. The clause which enshrines Buddhism in the constitution should be removed. A state which uses its Army and Police to harm its own people is an affront to Buddhism so why the pretence of just hanging on to the label?

      I completely agree with the above. This means banning all forms of amplified religious chanting. People should respect others and stop polluting the atmosphere with cacophony of religious chanting.

      As for religious education, all forms of single faith-based schools should be banned and educate children about the concept of religions and respect for diversity.

    Muslims want to live in peace in their country so that they can practice their religion without fear and have what is halal (permitted) for them.

    The writer has gone out of context,we muslims must blend well into the society and live with the other communities as brothers and sisters.

    MR with the BBs does not auger well for the muslims,and they must not forget the harm done to them by the bodu bala and the likes.

        Hi,

        Just a couple of such links for your info… And I have read John Esposito’s book.

        http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/234792.The_Oxford_History_of_Islam

          Fazl,

          Thanks “Brother”.

          Religious tolerance of Ottoman Turks was legendary. And very wise indeed. Explains why the Ottoman empire survived so long.

          However, this vital point about tolerance is essentially missed & ignored by almost all “Brotherhood” monkeys of good standing in society nowadays.

          Therefore do expect a global bloodbath in the name of Islam for generations to come. That is the reality we face. To think otherwise is to kid ourselves in the face of religious fanaticism. The worst branch of the Fascist Tree.

          Cheers!

          PS: Modern, secular Turkish Republic was founded on the basis of Religious tolerance by Ataturk. A great modernizer, he strictly separated religion from state. Visionary thinking nearly 100 years ago. He awarded equal status to women by constitution. Banned religion from governance of Turkey. Religion was placed where it truly belongs. As a personal affair. Practiced privately. As a result, arguably the most modern & progressive democracy in the Islamic world is Turkey. May God bless them.

          However, even modern Turkey is now threatened by creeping, fundamentalist, intolerant, fascist versions of Islam.

          Political Islam has risen to unprecedented levels these days in Turkey. Largely thanks to “Brotherhood” like monkeys. Liberal Turks are feeling increasingly threatened. Freedoms taken for granted such as having a beer curtailed.

          So called self-appointed “Men of God” have started lurking in streets of Ankara. Yes the “Brotherhood” monkeys have arrived in town.

          May liberal, tolerant & modern Turkish Republic of Ataturk prevail over the challenge posed by medieval barbarism of political Islam.

          Cheers!

    Sri Lanka should follow the Western tradition of the separation of Religion and State.

    Why?

    If there is no protection accrued to any religion by the State, you will surprised how protective its adherents will become of it.

    Today we really do not care what our priests are up to. Money is changing hands, women are in Temples beyond the worship areas, Car permits are given away to buy silence etc etc etc.

    The teachings of the Buddha are all but forgotten unless they are needed to arouse the public.

    The Buddha said AVOID, and if you cannot AVOID, PARTAKE – within reason. I will not get into the depth of his words because if as a Buddhist you do not get it, you should consider yourself not a Buddhist! Yes, it is time Buddhists start to question the actions of fellow Buddhists in the name of Buddhism because it is reflecting very badly on all Buddhists.

    The teachings of the Buddha was about achieving inner peace and from that flows actions and words that spread love to others.

    Have you heard any such words flow from any of the loud mouths you have heard recently?

    Do you have time to contemplate your actions today, and how you will deal with tomorrow?

    ” I believe all Muslims (Moor, Malays, Bohras, Memons) living in Sri Lanka should come under one Imam (Caliph to be precise) “

    ISIS is attempting to do just that but on a larger scale, thanks to the funds from such civilised places like Saudi Arabia and Qatar among others. If they succeed, with so many jihadists flocking to them from all over the world, soon there will only be ONE brand of Islam, under ONE Caliph.

    Muhammed Fazi it’s admirable that you are standing up for your Muslim brethren who are being treated badly in this country of yours and in your words as someone “Representing the Islamic faith and community in Sri Lanka,” you, “believe Muslims should be taught, guided and ruled by (where it is possible) Islamic teachings and laws.”
    – But I am disappointed that you don’t have it in you to show the same courtesy to the TNA and as such, lack the capacity and understanding to present the facts as they are; that you go as far as erroneously misconstruing and misrepresenting TNA’s position as, to quote you, “…doing no favors to the country either with their activities restricted to matters concerning only their community and or the Northern Peninsula.”
    How wrong you are – the TNA stands for the interests of all Tamil speaking people irrespective of religion and their constituency and mandate are not merely confined to the Northern province! Please rectify this mistake!

    And calling the Catholic Priests and the Pope in such highly derogatory terms such as: “pedophiles-shielding pseudo men of faith,” is vulgar and un-Islamic – sadly you are guilty of the same shortcomings that lead others to unfairly pin labels on Islam!

      Dear Usha,

      I will copy past the same comment I made in reply to you on FB…

      Thank you for the comment. Let me just first tell you where I come from.

      I as a Muslim, my allegiance is to my creator even before it is to my own parents. Caravans can go, dogs can bark, cows may or may not come home, politicians and leaders can come and go. But my faith is here to stay and my duty in my worship of God is NOT an option. Minorities or otherwise, my faith and my religious practices is not the business of another community. Nor does my faith seriously need affect another community.

      As for TNA, they were proxies of LTTE one time, and now they talk only FOR the Tamils, whereas I speak for the whole country while trying to keep my faith intact.

      Regret the choice of words vis-a-vis the Pope, but is it not cowardice when the Catholic community does not raise a voice against MR government corruption and their atrocities? And I sure intend addressing pedophilia within the sanctity of places of worship in the near future….

        Fazi,

        TNA was a proxy to the LTTE not by their choice! As soon as the LTTE was defeated, TNA wasted no time in denouncing violence and declared that they will settle for a solution within a United sl. TNA reprentative Sumanthiran spoke against the 18th A and the water incident. TNA is primarily focussed on the tamil rights at the moment that include all the minorities including the Muslims.

        To be frank, I will be much more comfortable with buddhist majority than living with a Muslim majority. It is because your alligence to Allah. There is only a small minority of Buddhists who want to create trouble for others but if under a Muslim majority, the minorities will have no chance!

        Hope it is not the usual you who wrote this disappointing piece of typing.

        I have always believed that those who ardently advocate a particular brand of religion must have had a disappointing unhappy childhood.

        If Allah/Shiva/Deva/Jesus/Moses/ want a perfect world he/she should communicate with us directly not through their agents. I am ready to receive/meet them anytime at their convenience.

        Whatever was written in the “good Books” in medieval or ancient times could relate only to the prevailing socio economic political conditions at the time of writing.

        A serious rebuttal can be made however I would urge you reconsider what you thought was Allas pronouncement.

        If people are left to their own devices they will find their own path of spiritualism.

          NV,
          Good advice to that novice.
          For the past decade most Bangladeshi folk from the west a buying a second home (they marry under Islamic law) at Tamil Nadu because of the facilities services,bridging language and relative peace. They (the older folk) accept that there is no return to 2 old women at war but feel ashamed to discuss their ideology with the war and as it stands now. The chances are if the Islam in Lanka gets a bit of radical dose then both big powers which are winding growth rates would use them to their advantage like what has happened to the Tamils. These Muslim folk must learn to be attached but detached with the rest of the island. Their problem is the Koran says don’t believe a non-Muslim helped you because you are blind- (their stupidity). In the 72 war for the freedom of Muslim Bangladesh when the whole world looked on saying they are like that and it’s an internal matter. It was the Hindus who fought and won and gave their lives (I still picture air Vice Marshall Mehta who commanded that operation from the Valley)
          So don’t be surprised why they aren’t saying thanks to everyone who stood by them at their hour of need. Fazi (nice bloke still shocked about the attacks which are past and cleared by public and world at large) should take a step back and reflect with out his outdated records of Koran meant.

    FAZL mentions a different kind of ISlam.

    This is another side of ISlam; Even Islamic States accepts that KORAN promotes violence. So, they control the mosque to stop violence.

    the Saudi effort to tone down its clerics is mild, hesitant and belated compared to what some Muslim states do. Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan already routinely use cameras. Kuwait has long installed tape-recorders to monitor Friday sermons. Preachers in the neighbouring United Arab Emirates need not write their own sermons. Except for a few trusted senior clerics, they read instead from a text delivered weekly by the government department for religious affairs that also pays all their salaries. “Protecting Youth from Destructive Ideas” and “Our National Flag, Symbol of Affiliation and Loyalty” provided two stimulating recent topics. Similarly, Turkey has for decades enforced a monopoly of Islamic discourse via a religious bureaucracy, known as Diyanet, that wields 121,000 employees and a budget of $2.3 billion.

    Other governments aspire to such dominance. Tunisia’s government has in recent months restored strict state control of mosques that had slipped following its revolution of January 2011, leading to a brief flowering of Wahhabist-style jihad promotion. Morocco, whose king has traditionally posed as Commander of the Faithful, delivering televised Ramadan sermons, has steeply boosted state promotion of a relatively tolerant version of the faith. Its budget for training imams, including a growing number of foreign students, has swollen tenfold in the past three years. The unspoken aim is to counter the spread of extreme Salafist ideas in places such as Mali and northern Nigeria.

    Egypt is conducting a still more radical overhaul. As long ago as the 1990s its government responded to a wave of Islamist violence by declaring the aim of bringing every mosque under full state control. The goal was never met, and by the time of the July 2013 army coup that toppled an elected government led by the Muslim Brotherhood, barely half of the preachers in the country’s 100,000-plus mosques were vetted or salaried by the state. The wide-scale infiltration of religious institutions by the Brotherhood and more radical groups markedly boosted their social standing and political influence.

    Egypt’s government has of late clamped unprecedented controls. In January it decreed that all Friday sermons must adhere to a weekly theme set by the religious-affairs ministry, establishing a hotline to allow worshippers to denounce preachers daring to voice political dissent. Further decrees required all preachers to be government-licensed, imposed a code of ethics forbidding discussion of politics in mosques, and banned smaller prayer halls from holding Friday prayers. The ministry fired 12,000 preachers and now allows only those trained in government-approved institutes to deliver sermons.

    As a foil to the powerful Brotherhood, the state had long allowed followers of quietist forms of Salafism to run some 7,000 mosques. But the ministry in September decreed it would take over their mosques too, after reports of a sermon forbidding the faithful from buying interest-bearing government bonds.

    Amr Ezzat, an Egyptian researcher, sees the effort to impose state-ordained orthodoxy as misguided and possibly dangerous. Religious institutions will lose legitimacy with time, pushing more Muslims towards radical margins. And by acting in effect as the imam, the state takes upon itself a duty to enforce morality. It is perhaps as a sop to religious conservatives, for instance, that Egyptian authorities have mounted an increasingly lurid campaign against homosexuality, most recently by staging a midnight raid on a Cairo bathhouse on national television, dragging a score of naked men to prison.

    Do not try to demolish a false set of beliefs except after building a correct set of beliefs [in the populace] – Imam Hassan Al-Banna

    The belief in non-existing Allah and accepting the Prechings of the businessman Mohamad is a false set of beliefs.

    Read and see buddhist texts to see whether it is the correct or not. BUDDHISM IS NOT A SET OF BELIEFS. It is there you to investigate, criticize. You accept it only if you think it is correct.

    Islam became peaceful only when it had the influence of the EASTERN RELIGONS. SEE HOW NOW WESTERNERS ARE BECOMING VIOLENT against their own.

    Because, quran can be interpreted to be violent. that is why some Islamic govts produce the script to be read the mosque or mosques are highly controlled.

    Sri lanka does not need Hala certification. Most of the butchers in Sri lanka are muslim. anyway, what others eat is Halal. Because, Muslim pray to allah before killing the animal and that is what they sell.

    It is impossible for life to not affect faith, or for faith to have a separate existence away from life”

    FAZL MOHAMAD:

    You talk like an idiot and you think you right. The problem is you are not prepared to think for yourself in case that you are wrong. Think; what if, if you are wrong and then think.

    FAITH means you don’t think logically to see whether this is right or wrong. You just accept it blindly.

    ISLAM is a FAITH that the devotees blindly accept and ISLAM does not allow questioning the it’s content. Because Muslims have to totally submit to their god. That is wrong. You people live like dummies.

    Buddhism does not allow living like dummies or don’t ask total subjugation. buddhism asks to investigate Buddha’s teachings and accept only if you think it is correct.

    No Muslim army has ever invaded Indonesia (where it now has the largest Muslim population in the world) or the Muslim majority Malaysia.

    Muslims have political leaders, academic leaders and religious leaders. but, they all are muslims.

    The Muslim way is rich muslim donate money to build mosques. Poor muslims increase keep on reproducing and increase the muslim population. As the population increases they build a mosque for every 40 – 50 families. Muslim men marry from other religions and convert those women. On the other hand, if a muslim girl fall in love with a non-muslim boy, they take the girl to the mosque and beat her. In the same way, they make muslim girls marry when they are very young.

    That is the non-violent way of islamization of the world when muslims are not the majority religion.

    See how FAZL Muhamad increased the muslim population. He boasted here saying that he married a Sinhala-buddhist girl.

    Islam allows a man to have intercourse with his slave woman, whether he has a wife or wives or he is not married…Whoever regards that as haraam is a sinner who is going against the consensus of the scholars.

    “Ruling on having intercourse with a slave woman when one has a wife” (archived)
    Islam Q&A, Fatwa No. 10382, November 24, 2005.

    In Saudi Arabia Rape is different.

    Saudi Arabian Rape most of their SERVANT women because, A servant is a Slave for them and Saudi Arabian culture as well as ISlam allows Servants to be raped. that is why women gone to Saudi arabia get rapes. On the other hand, even if the wife is raped that can not be reported because. that is against the religion.

    That is how Even Prophet Mohammad is a RAPIST in today’s Laws. He had very young girls as wives.

    Fasl, you say that Sri Lanka is “ranked 9th among the top ten countries in the world for the highest cases of rape, ranked 4th highest for cases of suicides, ranked as the 4th biggest boozing nation in the world”. I am doubtful about these statistics – can you provide evidence?

    There is a big difference in reportage of these things from different countries and the are also differences in laws regarding rape – in many countries rape within marriage is not against the law. This is why the Scandinavian countries are ranked high. In Muslim countries the reporting of rape is low because most women who have been raped do not report it to the police. There is also a problem regarding police response and the trauma of hospitals and courts that dissuade women from reporting rape and other violent crimes to the police, especially is the perpetrator is a member of their family. This is a problem around the world, but worse in some countries than others.

    Suicide is also subject to under-reporting, and some countries are more likely than others to report suicides and compile reliable statistics about it.

    There is a lot of politics in these sorts of rankings.

      Hello Doctor,

      The following links are for your perusal,

      http://www.wonderslist.com/10-countries-highest-rape-crime/

      http://www.adaderana.lk/news/sri-lanka-ranked-4th-most-suicide-prone-country-in-the-world

      http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/26490-lanka-among-top-boozing-nations.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook

      And for the records, non-reporting of rape cannot be counted as incidents of rape. This is simple logic. And how would you know if rapes are not reported in Muslim countries? If it is not reported, then it not reported. And please don’t tell me you or like-minded people connected to you had the privilege of visiting Islamic countries that you people were able to do a survey.

        In the western world _ Canada 1 in 5 university girls Muslims are being raped daily. This is being addressed very discretly by muslim women born there (they write better than you and your elk) but they prefer to be non entity because of Jihadist threat.

        one such person (muslim born ME and grew up in Canada) articles will be published by the UN as a series Jan end.

        Thanks Fazl.

        The article on suicide admits that “WHO cautioned that suicide figures are often sketchy, with less than half of those nations keeping clear tallies.”

        I have also read the 2008 UN report on rape in Asia that you have quoted. Sri Lanka was one of countries studied (compared with Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Papua New Guinea). The link you have provided does not link to the original report, rather to a list compiled by someone called Ejaz Khan, who may well have a political agenda behind his list. The original study was one of self-reportage about violent crime towards women and included questions about rape (male interviewers were used for interviewing 10,000 men). The self-reportage of violence towards women was indeed shocking, and was widely reported at the time. The study was limited to selected countries, though and did not include India or Pakistan – the study showed the worst reportage of violence to women from New Guinea, but this may also reflect a greater tendency to admit to the violence they perpetrate.

All the citizens in SL gets all the benefits equally. You are allowed to do your religion without destroying SLankan culture. In any condition for Sinhalese there is no other country. Muslims will go to middle east, Tamils also will go to India but for Sinhalese no other country. so let them have there religion and culture in there country. Most of the Tamils and Muslims in SriLanka( few are not like that) do not think SL is there country, only they take the benefits from SL and try to create problems to the mother land.

      male,

      Why do you feel that all of Sri lanka need to be nourished by Buddhist culture? Certainly it is not accepted by all this is why we had had 30 year war! Sri Lankan tamils are Sri Lankans on par with you and they have nowhere else to go too. If they go to India they are either refugees or immigrants just like you will be!

      You as a sinhala Buddhist need to accept diversity and refrain from nourishing all with Buddhist culture; let people chose as to what they want to do. This will bring about true peace.

      “All in Sri Lanka are nourished with Buddhist culture and it is accepted by all”

      If what you say is true why is this island stock piling arms and ammunition, fighter jets, warships, artillery and field guns, men in uniforms, ….. , police forces across the country, courts, lawyers, and jails?

      “All the citizens in SL gets all the benefits equally”

      Where this SL you refer to?

      “Muslims will go to middle east, Tamils also will go to India but for Sinhalese no other country.”

      Remember you have south/north India whence your forefathers came.

      As far as I know during and after every riots against Tamils they went back to North or East of this island. Why don’t you give them their Tamil Eelam so they can live where they feel they are safe.

      All Muslims and Tamils were born here and live here. If you don’t like them you go, they are not going.

      “Most of the Tamils and Muslims in SriLanka( few are not like that) do not think SL is there country, only they take the benefits from SL and try to create problems to the mother land.”

      What sort of benefit they get from your supposed mother land? This is not your mother land, you are just another descendant of Kallathonie.
