Jayampathy Exceeds Chairmanship Mandate In PSC Questioning Of Hizbullah

Jayampathy Wickramaratne, Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) inquiring into allegations against former Governor of the Eastern Province M L A M Hizbullah, has violated established protocol related to chairing such inquiry by both the content and tone of questions directed to the respondent.

Wickramaratne showing lack of restrain in voice and body language, accompanied by sarcastic facial expressions badgered Hizbullah about Arabic design elements in the controversial so-called Shariah University being set up in Kattankudy.

Jayampathy

Hizbullah in response said that design preference is a matter of personal choice. When Colombo Telegraph enquired from Wickramaratne if it was appropriate for the Chairman of a PSC to ask such questions in that manner, he responded thus: ‘When he (Hizbullah) was asked why Arabic architecture, Arabic sign boards and date palm trees were used in Kattankudy, his answer was that it was to attract Arabic tourists. I asked him the reason for using Arabic architecture in an educational institute. In view of the answer he gave earlier this was a very relevant question.’

The PSC is inquiring into funds received to build the so-called Shariah university, funding sources and whether or not monies obtained were used for purposes they were solicited for.

The design element, in any event, is extraneous to the issue at hand, Colombo Telegraph notes, observing the important hospitals such as the Peradeniya Teaching Hospital and the Sri Jayawardenepura Teaching Hospital had elements heavily drawn from traditional Japanese architecture.

In the past, many buildings donated or funded by foreign nations have had their total architecture or elements of it influenced or inspired by the donor culture. Example are, some buildings of the Peradeniya hospital (Japanese), BMICH (Chinese), Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital (Japanese), Nelum Pokuna theatre (Chinese).

A political observer commenting to Colombo Telegraph stated “it’s inappropriate for Jayampathy Wickramaratne to behave the way he did. Not only the questions he posed, but also his facial expressions of sarcasm bordering on sardonic demeanor takes away the impartiality expected of a chairperson of a Parliamentary Select Committee – a body that is so significant and powerful to challenge even the statements made under parliamentary privilege. Like an impressionable teenager he is giving in to the social media populism and an insecure need for validation. He has no electorate to back him and unlike the legends of yesteryears who went to parliament from the National List, such as Lakshman Kadiragamar, Wickramaratne is a non-entity to the people. He is looking for cheap popularity by swinging with the social media tide. In the current racially tense political environment, the shortest cut to cheap popularity is to appear to ‘give a piece of one’s mind to the Muslim politicians’ at the PCS. If you ask rude questions from Muslim politicians and react to answers given by Muslim witnesses in a rude manner it instantly boosts your social medial popularity. Also if a witness before the PSC is blunt, disrespectful and practically bark back racist answers at the PSC, he too becomes an overnight social media celebrity. Both the insecure politicians and public servants are after cheap popularity and the social immunity it provides”. 

A chartered architect commenting to Colombo Telegraph stated “how can Jayamapthy Wickramaratne ask such an imbecilic question such as ‘why Arabic architecture was used in the design of an educational institution? This is the sad state of uncultured politicians without finesse. They travel the world on tax payers’ money but they do not have the intellectual sophistication to appreciate cultures and societies. They do not know that our built world is influenced by different cultural traditions. Arab architecture, Moghul traditions of design, all stemming from Islamic civilizations have historically contributed to worldly beauty. All around Europe, east and south Asia, the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Africa, Islamic architecture has left its mark. A crude mind is unlikely to understand such nuances. What’s next? Crude parliamentarians are now going to dictate to us how to design spaces, which artistic traditions to be influenced from? Are we to fear our imagination and only design ‘Sinhala Buddhist’ buildings when designing educational institutions”? 

The political observer, in his parting remarks stated “throughout the questioning of the Secretary to the Ministry of Public Administration, MA Sumanthiran MP repeatedly asked if the Secretary was aware of the Grade 3 syllabus. He enquired if the Secretary did not know that different nationalities wore different kinds of clothes. May be Sumanthiran should ask from the chairman of the PSC Jayampathy Wickramaratne: “did you pass Grade 3? Didn’t you learn for Social Studies that different buildings in different geographies reflect different cultures? Don’t you know that architecture differs, even within a country? All these politicians should get off their high horses” he commented.

    Isn’t this the same Jayampathy who drafted Dr Ranil’s Federal Thing to Join the East with the North to please the Diaspora, TNA and the West?…

    No wonder poor fella got upset, when Hezbulla hit the Six off the assistant Drafter Abraham’s full toss about Blood Baths..

    300 Poor Innocent Catholics including Foreigners were blasted to smithereens by the mates followers, party organizers, drivers, political cadre and even business associates of Hezbulla , Bathudeen, Assath Sally , Halim, Rahuman and other few in the Government..

    Hundreds are still in Hospital without Eyes, Limbs and other parts of the body missing and or severely damaged.
    Catholic Community is bleeding ,desperately trying to find out why they didn’t know what the UNP Ministers knew on Easter Thursday .

    And Dr Jayampathy is worried about Palm Trees in Kathankuddy..
    What a shame . How Disgusting ..

    where are the Catholic Ministers and MPs of the UNP ?..

    Have they exhibited the same Solidarity which the Muslims of Dr Ranil’s Yahapalanaya did to Dry Clean themselves…
    And even made an Ace Public Display to show off their cleanliness to the Sinhala Buddhist Majority , with an expensive Atapirikara Pooja to Mahanayaks of Malwatta..
    And in return received blessings.
    Plus a Return to Duty call to serve our 70 % Sinhala Buddhist plus our new new allies the Catholic Community..

      What a stupid statement from that Pissu Balla, that Arabic architecture, name boards and date palm trees are to attract Arabic tourists. I thought you go as a tourist to another country to see their architecture and culture and not expect them to put up your architecture and culture. This is a typical lie and distortion coming out from a Muslim to cover up a crime. Even after order given to remove all name boards in Arabic to be removed, nothing seems to have been done about it. Do they expect Sinhalese to rise up and remove them and then cry foul. By the way a sacred tree giving shade to a Buddha statue has been set on fire in Badulla by Muslim racists.

      Listen stupid,your government signed an international agreement with India to link the ancient homeland of the island’s Tamils where they had lived and ruled for thousands of years as one unit and grant a semi federal unit for them with land and police powers for this area with Tamil as the official language and the language of the courts in the joint north east with reasonable use of Sinhalese when warranted, just like in the other seven provinces. This joint north east and the rest of the island considered historically Sinhalese was to be the other unit. However recent Indian Tamil origin racist anti Tamil JR to sabotage and water down the agreement created 8 provincial councils, however was forced to honour the North East link as one unit, due to India, despite stupid short sighted Pirapakaran’s antics. The north and east is the ancient homeland of the island’s Eezham Tamils and has never been Sinhalese or Muslim land. Sinhalese only arrived here on state funded colonisation on ethnically Tamil lands and on state lands after independence, a deliberate move by all Sinhalese led governments since independence including the current one to change the demography and reduce the Tamils to a marginalised, voiceless minority in their own lands. They have achieved this in east and now have started this in the north.

        contd: These fake Arab largely low caste Dravidian Islamic immigrant from South India only arrived in the east a few centuries ago as refugees, fleeing Portuguese persecution along the western coast and later Sinhalese persecution in the Kandyan areas. Both these people have no claim to east. One lot arrived in the east within the last 60-30 years. Most within the last 40-30 years and the other a few centuries ago begging for refuge. Now both have ganged together to deny the island’s Tamils their just rights and homeland.. The Sinhalese create a Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist state and the Muslims to create a fake Arab Wahhabi/Salafist state that will be a threat to India and to rest of the region. Everything about the North & East from ancient times was Tamil and Hindu or Tamil Buddhist. It was populated by the ancient Tamil Naga, who are largely the ancestors of the Sri Lankan Tamils or ancient migrants from North India who did not become Buddhists and got assimilated into the Sri Lankan Tamil identity. This is why the Sri Lankan Tamils have higher percentage of Bengali DNA (30%) than the Sinhalese who crow about an exclusive Bengali ancestry but only share a 25% DNA with Bengali and a 70% DNA with Indian Tamils proving that is it the Sinhalese who are largely descended from Indian (Tamil) immigrants and invaders and not the Sri Lankan Tamils. The native language or dialect of the island was Elu which is a simple semi Tamil Dravidian dialect. The Dravidian Naga in the island adopted Tamil as their mother tongue around 3000 years ago

          contd: When the British created the Tamil North and Eastern provinces and called them the Tamil homelands, they created it out the lands, after settling even the remotest and farfetched Sinhalese claim, this is why Tamil lands in the north west province and Padavikulam ( Padaviya) and ThambanKadavai( Thammankaduwa0 were given to the Sinhalese. What is now the northern and eastern province was the land where the Sinhalese or anyone had any claim from ancient to modern times and these lands were purely Tamil owned and occupied , This was recognised by various Sinhalese governments, India, and internationally. The Portuguese, the Dutch and the British recognised and stated these lands are Tamil lands not Sinhalese.. If you look at the map of Sri Lanka before 1948, you will see every town river, city, hill and nook and corner had a Tamil name. No Sinhalese or Arabic names. Now Sinhalese racists supported by the occupying racist Sinhalese armed forces and fake Arab low caste refugee immigrant Islamic fundamentalists with funds obtained from certain Gulf Arab and other Islamic nations and with the overt/covert support of the Sinhalese state and armed forces were busy marginalising the now powerless indigenous Hindu/Christian Eelam Tamils stealing their lands, destroying Hindu temples and some Christian churches and Arabising themselves and changing ancient Tamil place names to Arabic and writing everywhere in Arabic and Arabising the land scape. Their aim was the create an Arab Wahhabi/Salafist caliphate for their immigrant fake Arab refugee largely low caste converted Tamil community from South India on stolen Eelam Tamil land and the Sinhalese in order to marginalise the Tamils were giving overt and covert support to these Arabiation and other extremist activities , as the Tamils were the victims. Very soon they would have tried to replace Tamil with Arabic as the official language of the east and even Mannar. The change of names and name boards and street signs , date palms, Arab dresses and sharia are the start of this.

            contd: They have no right to anything in the north and east, refugee immigrants who came a few centuries ago, begging for refuge as fellow ethnic Tamils from the local Eelam Tamils are now trying to steal the land from the very same people who took pity on them, when no one else did and create an alien Arab Wahhabi/Salafist Caliphate. Arabic, Arab dress. Culture. They are not Arabs nor Wahhabis but Tamils from South India who converted to Sufi Islam and migrated here a few centuries ago. They had their own ancient indigenous Tamil Sufi Islamic culture that is rich and tolerant. There is no need for this aggressive, extremist. Primitive desert Arab culture. Arabic is only used for religious purposed, just like Sanskrit, Pali or Latin was used But Arabic and Arab culture is not Islam. Most Muslims are not Arabs but South Asians and Indonesians and these people are not running around claiming to be Arabs and to follow Arab culture just because they are Muslims. The two great Islamic kingdoms the Ottoman and the Mughal never used Arabic or followed Arabic culture. The languages were Turkish, Persian/Urdu, in the South of India it was Tamil and later Tamil and Malayalam that was the language of Islam.

              contd: From the time of independence the foolish racist short sighted Sinhalese thought they were being very cunning and great by using selfish, extremist, nasty , power hungry Muslim politicians and elite , especially from the south , to divide and rule the islands Tamils on the basis of caste, religion, region and origin . These Muslims politians and elite, brain washed the 100% Tamil Muslims massed to consider themselves Arabs and hate their actual Tamil origin This itself is a form of genocide , of not allowing a person to acknowledge their actual origin and heritage and brainwashing them to hate it. Just like the stolen generation in Australia, where partly whit light skinned Aboriginal children were forcibly taken away from their parents. This was deliberately done to marginalise the Tamils. From the late 1980s this rapid Arabisation started with funds from Gulf States and this was encouraged by all Sinhalese led governments, especially in the east as force against the Tamils /LTTE and their just claim for their lands. They encouraged the Muslims to distance themselves from their indigenous Tamil Sufi culture and dress forms and Arabise themselves. They even gave arms to Muslim home guards in the east to kill rape, ethically cleanse Tamils and destroy Hindu temples. This went on even after the war ended. Extremist, nasty Muslim politicians were elected to high positions and the Tamils who are the indigenous population of the east and still the largest, were ignored for government jobs and for high positions, like the governor or chief minister.

                Contd:
                The Muslims with Sinhalese help were ruling the east , Arabising it rapidly and marginalising the Tamils , so much that even Buddhist monks in the east started to get alarmed and question this behaviour. This would have gone on and the Sinhalese encouraging the marginalisation of the indigenous Tamils, Tamil language and culture and the Arabisation of the east and most probably the north if not for the Easter attacks. Never thought the Muslim viper that they were feeding to attack the Tamils will turn on them. Turn on them it did and when it gets the chance and once they establish their Caliphate they will turn on them. You reap the evil that you sowed. The Sinhalese in order to create a Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist state, deliberately encouraged the island’s Tamil Muslims to hate their Tamil origin and Arabise themselves, as tool of divide and rule and to marginalise the Tamils and their just demands for their lands and rights. The Tamil language culture and Tamil people are ancient and indigenous to the island but the Sinhalese wanted to deny this truth and justice and were even willing to entertain an alien brutal religion, culture and an alien language and give it more rights than the indigenous Tamil , as long as this marginalises and discriminates the Tamil people , however they did not realise the Muslims had other ideas, they were cunningly using the stupid short sighted Sinhalese hatred for the Tamils for their advantage to create a homeland for their fake Arab immigrant Dravidian South Indian community and using the Gulf Arab funds to create an Arab Wahhabi/Caliphate. It is Sinhalese racism that created the LTTE and this Islamic extremism. They encouraged Islamic extremism and Arabisation to marginalise the Tamils but now want to stop it as it is affecting them The Sinhalese wanted deny the existence of native Tamil and Tamil people and now have created a demand for an alien and language and culture from a section of a population by trying to deny just Tamil rights.

        Arab countries will not do anything as they need this cheap Sri Lankan labour,. Other countries , including many Muslim predominating countries have banned their females going to the Arabian Gulf and also to nations like Lebanon due to ill treatment, torture and rape. Have you heard of the poor Sri Lankan Muslim maid Rizana , falesely accused of murder by her Arab employers and hanged. They did not show any mercy to her being a young vulnerable Muslim female. The Saudis called her and the Sri Lankan Muslims as South Asian converts ( meaning Tamil Hindu converts to Islam ) and as such cannot enjoy any privileges given to Arabs. Arabs are racist to the core , even the negroid ones. If you are not Arab they will treat you like shit, even if you are Muslim. Ask the Pakistanis, Indian Muslims, Bangladeshis and even many Sri Lankan Muslims who worked there. Keep on dreaming . The Arabs want this cheap Sri Lankan labour skilled and unskilled to run their economy and will not do anything to stop them coming. They will make a few noises and do nothing. Have these Gulf Arabs done anything to Israel for the treatment of the Palestinian Arab? Nothing they secretly trade with Israel. What have they done to help their fellow Arabs in Syria, Iraq or Yemen nothing. Only create more problems for them and bomb Yemen to stone age. These Arabs hate the Saudis and other Gulf Arabs. Rishard , Hezballah and many other Muslim businessmen and politicians are pocketing huge sums from these nations to Arabise and radicalise the local Muslim population and feed them with Arabian nights tales , to create problems , whist they become more rich and powerful and escape all the riots and problems. Like Hizballah stated the very rich 7000 Muslim families will run away and no one will want the rest of you Muslims . Not the Arabs. Porkistan , Malaysia or the West.

      I don’t think Jayampathy exceeded his Chairmanship mandate in any way. His questions were perfectly legit.
      Hizbulla’s answers were like “swords are for cutting grass”.

    The person speaking in the video is not the person in the picture labelled Jayampathy.

    In an inquiry about terrorism resulting in 250 murders and 500 injured, any query regarding design of buildings may be out of place, but not necessarily so – it may be to establish that the design was insisted on, by the donors of the funds.

    When Shirani Bandaranaike went before a PSC, she was not even given a seat.
    This PSC appears to be a vast improvement.

    Jayampathy Wickremaratne should be aware that when a country donates money for a specific cause there is nothing wrong placing its architecture or its symbols. That is a sign of friendship of solidarity. What is vital is the hidden agenda of Hisbullah and his associates. When such funds are donated it should be brought to the notice of the government and such work should have been in compliance with the Sri Lankan regulations, and not eventually for challenging the sovereignty of the country with the hidden agenda. Even that the Muslims are majority in the world is an unwanted issue at a time when Muslim refugees are not accepted by wealthy Muslim countries which is a controversial subject. The real fault lies with the Sri Lankan politicians when they failed to formulate a sound economic policy in the best interests of Sri Lanka. Had they formulated a sound economic policy, there is no necessity to send labourers to Sri Lanka. Jayampathy Wickremaratne as a Chairman should have remained calm and has demonstrated that he has no backbone to ask the politicians as why can’t the Sri Lankan ruling politicians to exploit the natural resources in Sri Lanka by giving powers to Provincial governments when advocating an open economy policy. India, Singapore, Myanmar are countries that has stopped sending labourers to Midddle-East countries. He should have found whether Hisbullah has misused/abused his powers to achieve the hidden agenda of destruction of the Buddha Statues and Hindu temples or what made him to have close links with Zaharan and his associates of NTJ..

    “In the past, many buildings donated or funded by foreign nations have had their total architecture or elements of it influenced or inspired by the donor culture. “.

    The Sharia university was built with a loan from a charity in Saudi Arabia whereas the buildings quoted above were either ‘donated or funded’. The loan obtained by M L A M Hizbulla has to be repaid. This is not a direct comparison. Moreover, Hizbulla has gone too far in creating an Arabic village in Sri Lanka.

    The tone and body language are certainly based on the perception of the person who interprets. Hizbulla is a controversial personality and has offended other communities with his ‘blood bath’ speeches.

    As to the conduct of the chairman of the PSC he must have carried away with the wind and political climate in Sri Lanka.

    Stop this nonsense of Sharia university were there unis in Mecca,in 4th century ?

    Musulims faith is so weak so everything is threatening them including their own shadows.

    Today Arabs can’t build even one km road using own brain all imported.when expatriates leave tomorrow everything will gather dust.

    This kuvarner Borubullah couldn’t take the heat of questions.

      Dear Native,

      You got a very valid point, mate Thanks.

      Dr Jayamapathy’s UNP Constitution solely revolves around giving Sampathar the Homeland which his God Son couldn’t get for him.

      Even after 2015, Mr Sampathar wanted it intact with the East and the North in One Piece..

      Besides robbing the EPF through the Reserve Bank , and issuing Free car permits, Dr Ranil couldn’t achieve much in fulling his promise to Sampathar, although Dr Ranil paid even an extra 100 thou to the Poliklkkas in Kotte to work with Dr Jayampathy.

      Now the Easter Disaster not only demolished Dr Ranil’s Catholic base along with all the “Good Work”of Dr Jayamapathy, but also exposed the gigantic Arabization of Batti with a mini Meca in Kathanakuddy.

      And Hezbulla telling Abraham about the Blood Bath which had been planned to welcome Jayamapathi’s Constitution for Dr Ranil,No wonder Jayampathy got annoyed and lost it…

        You been a doomsayer all your life, in Colombo Telegraph as well as in D B S Jeyaraj.

        For a change read something about a liberal who also failed ultimately under Weeping Widow’s Sinhala/Buddhist wacking handbag. Eventually all of them gave up on their principles.
        The flip side of these do gooders were disappointing.
        Colvin did not rectify language policy and added Chapter II in the constitution.
        N M Perera told the Northern Tamils to sell their Thaali (Married Tamil women wear this gold chain from the day they are married) if they wanted to feed their family in the early 1970s. They sat on the fence after the gang was sacked by Felix. LSSP was also silent on the war crimes / crimes against humanity being committed by police and armed forces. All because the weeping widow caught them by their b***s hence their heart and mind followed.

        One language, two nations; Two languages, one Nation

        Then again, participating in Official Language (Sinhala only) Bill debate in Parliament in 1956, he stated, “… Do we want an independent Ceylon or two bleeding halves of Ceylon which can be gobbled up by every ravaging imperialist monster that may happen to range the Indian Ocean? These are issues that in fact we have been discussing under the form and appearance of the language issue… One language, two nations; Two languages, one Nation…”

    “All these politicians should get off their high horses”. Will they do that? No. Who mounted them on high horses? The VOTER. Then if they(politicians) don’t “Get Off”. what should be done? The VOTERS must PULL them down. Do the VOTERS have the authority do that? YES. Why are the VOTERS not doing that? Simply , because the VOTERS have been made “Slaves”. Then what is needed? The VOTERS must first “GET OFF” their “SLAVERY” and seek “FREEDOM” and make INDEPENDENT and INFORMED decisions to “GET OFF” the wrong persons and MOUNT the CORRECT and HONORABLE persons on the “HORSE”. Until that course of action is taken, all these politicians will be on the “MOUNT” never to get off.

    Here the question is about Arabization. Sari or Burqa? Not about Muslimization. Not sari or Moddakku! One may not ask why a mosque is architectured in particular way. But a business in the mid of the town has to get the BD’s permission to disturb the uniformity of the look. All cultural Building in Ceylon either carry Dravidic Buddhist or Dravidian Hinduism architecture. They are not comparable even to Northern Indian culture. PA services demands to stay with sari to public offices (FR violation of that is different). Dress code may not be accepted. But building with different architecture will be objected.
    A philanthropist has gestor word of how he would like to see the building. When Hezbollah building his private business place, he will be following Building department codes, i.e. local culture, environmental issue, neighborhood people and structures……… When Japan donate a hall UoP or China building a BMICH, then it is customary donor country keep its culture.
    This is not an Arabian donation. It was not approved by Education department. It appears to be no approval properly taken from Register of Companies, either. The possibility of everybody bribed heavily and officials were corrupted to illegally pay and convert the Ceylonese into Arabians, is present in this university establishing case. The commission there to white washes the criminals, failed to establish the criminal content of the building process. A donor may give with restricted, semi-restricted and non-restricted donation. But the restriction must follow the recipient country’s legal requirements. Donors normally do not attempt conversion as retraction. Japan pay ask make building show that it was Japanese present, but would not demand there Japanese religious be taught to convert local crowd. This is why Sinhalese oppose the leftover of the Colonial missionary schools. Here New Colonial Master is secretly imposing conversions.

    As this is not a donation commission should have got deeply into the funding process. Further, as they have to considered income to Hezbollah, commission should ask for his tax papers during the years building work was going on.
    If a charitable organization or religious organization starting the university, it is obligated to put the FS to public. Even the bitch wandering on the road can walk into the administration office and ask the CFO “Mr. Accountant I like to see your last year’s Final count”. Hezbollah is saying it is his private University, meaning a company coming under register of companies. Only Inland Revenue Depart can review that Financial Statement. In those circumstances, commission was obligated and should have quarried enough to clarify the public the complicacy surrounding the university and its nature.
    CT has been tearing off Uduvil Girls College and its boards racketeering. But it must realize it is not able to do the same thing to Batticaloa Sharia University. Is the RTI covering these information or Hezbollah has hedge against RTI too?
    Look at Tamil Christians Church goers. Most of them wearing Pottu, Sari and, Thali Kodi. If you talk to them they will replay that those all Tamil culture, nothing to do with Hinduism. For them too Allah is the god. Why then so much of hate from Muslims to that Tamil culture?

    Though Hisbullah is not my cup of tea, I felt Hizbullah should have answered

    *Why there are hundreds of buildings in Nuwara Eliya with English architecture?
    *If responded its because we were under Englisg colony, the next question should be why didnt you change it if it is such a grave offence?
    *Why there chinese restaurents in every junctions
    *why the chinese restaurants in Sri Lanka have been given the chinese environmental look and japanese in the same way
    *Why there are boards in Chinese language
    *why there is a popular butter product in which the package contains info in chinese
    *Why there are some temples with japanese architecture
    *Architectural design of which country are the old parliament and the Aluthkade court complex

      British ruled this country for 170 years and developed. So they built using colonial architecture. Mind you Englsih is an international language. Also business language.

      300K Chinese are here to develop this country and they know only Chinese language to track their residence and shipping..Also today all over the world governments started to teach Chinese at schools because one day this language will replace English in trading.

      Why the help you need Arabic here Tamil is mother tongue of Musulims here all over the country sign boards are also in Tamil.

      Who are Arabs? WHAT IS THEIR COBTRIBUTION TOTHIS COUNTRY.?
      How many Arab countries supply oil to SL free of charge ?

      The biggest Musulim country in the world Indonesia never display Arab sign boards they use ONLY Basha Indonesia ( 60 % Tamil).

      If Musulim want to please your Arab masters invite them to your homes and talk in Arab…will any Arab visit SL Musulim home is question mark.

      Give them a deadline to erase not cover Arab writings else let a crowd go their and complete this work.

      Arab language is a comedy here…only after 6th century this language even got its alphabet .

        Arnt the employment opportunities that brings one of the major income mode of the country, offered for the last 3 to 4 decades sufficient.

          And also like some joker said
          Saree also introduced by your Arabs to women here..before this people of this land wore leaves and lived inside caves.

          Arabs built roads and railways here.

          Arabs introduce Radio and TV here.

          So called tsunami villages built for Musulims only.
          In Ampara one tsunami village among Musulims 5 Tamil families lived there all were chased out by Musulim thugs saying this is only for Musulims.

          IT WAS THE BRITUSH WHI HAVE LAID FOUNDATION FOR DEVELOPMENTS HERE.

          It is because of British you are writing in English today under stand?

          Suppose if Hitlor won in 2nd world war today German would have been international language ..And in Asia we will talk Japanese.

          Will your Bedouin Arabs supply oil free of charge ?

          Why your Arab masters build only mosques..but not school or sports centres or factories ? If so at least some of your Musulims will think with 21st century mode.

          It was the British who built first school in Kattankudyc in 1939 …the longest bridge.in the country the Kalladi Bridge was but I’m 1925.

          During these time your Arabs were begging British for their survival .

          While Catholic PHILIPPINES people run offices in Arab countries SL people including Musulims are cleaning toilets

          Why can’t your Arab bruders at least give office jobs for SL Musulims.

          Even before 70s people lived here without Arab toilet cleaning jobs.

          Most of the Arab countries are bankrupt today he he he even Saudi Bedouins now receive world bank loans..And your UAE Arab bruders now begging kafirs foreigners to come and invest
          KeKeKeKe. Because no takers for newky built flats and villas.

          Cholan the ungrateful,

          Now you have answered beautifully to Cholan, but have you ever answered to those guys who wrote in CT that if the Lankawe women boycott going to ME, Arabian toilets will be smell noisomely.

          Man, it is not Cholan is faithless. The pretentious Marxists on CT are the one faithless. Otherwise, without answering to you, who demand those women they work 7/20 for pennies and shilling have to faithful to their masters, Marxists are keeping their heads under the table.

          Can you tell me a Western country women going to ME to wash Arabian toilets? It is corrupted Muslim politicians bringing the Arabian commission and keeping Muslim -Sinhala Government corrupted is causing this from 1948. Remember, it was TN workers have been coming to Ceylon during Kings’ time, Portuguese time, Dutch time, and British time. When the Lankawe Arabian get into Sinhala Buddhist government from 1948, only Lankawe women ended up washing toilets for Arab Masters. Shame on you for bringing Oil Dollar & corrupting Sinhala Buddhist Modaya with ME commission.
          If you reject English, then reject democracy, reject Train, cars….science….. pants because that all were introduced by European Colonialist. Even reject your under wear, and start wear Amude.

          Are you also claimed refugee status somewhere in West, like other Lankawe Muslims in the West or still in Lankawe and trying to go out?

      The problem is, it is Iran begging Lankawe to buy Oil, not the other way. It is the story of “Irrappaanai Pidichchuthaam Parai Piranthu”. China is refusing to give loan to Lankawe. Then why Iran is working on Uma Oya? Iran can do business only with Lankawe and China.

      Why Lankawe is not changing its plants from Iranian discarded crude oil? If Lankawe change its plants and start to buy fine crude from other countries it will lose the supply once first line of credit is over. Iran some or how keep supplying. Iran, one day threaten to stop the supply saying credit is overdrawn. Next day it come back and knock at Lankawe’s door saying “Palaya Kurudi Kathavai Thiravadi:.

    The author of this article is twisting the inquiry. The question or statement by the PSC Chairman re Arabic name boards was only after Hisbulla mentioned that the Arabic alphabet was used to attract tourists. Which is a stupid statement any Muslim could make. If Arabic boards are the ones that attracts tourists, then we will have to have Russian, German, Italian, French, Chinese etc etc name boards. For this author to take an answer from a different question and spin a story clearly shows either he or she is “another Arab loving ISS supporter” or a stupid person who does not understand what questions and answers were given at the inquiry. This article is “FAKE NEWS”.

      Is Kattankudy the dirtiest den on earth because of Musulims is an independent autonomous territory like Hong Kong ???

      It was these Modayas all governments encouraged these Musulims to do whatever they like to teach a lesson to Tamil.

    They did not realise the Muslims had other ideas, they were cunningly using the stupid short sighted Sinhalese hatred for the Tamils for their advantage to create a homeland for their fake Arab immigrant Dravidian South Indian community and using the Gulf Arab funds to create an Arab Wahhabi/Caliphate. It is Sinhalese racism that created the LTTE and this Islamic extremism. They encouraged Islamic extremism and Arabisation to marginalise the Tamils but now want to stop it as it is affecting them The Sinhalese wanted deny the existence of native Tamil and Tamil people and now have created a demand for an alien and language and culture from a section of a population by trying to deny just Tamil rights.

    I don’t see anything wrong with the tenor or tone of questioning by PSC Chairman Mr. Jayampathy. Any person with legal training would concede that. Systematic “Arabisation” of Eastern Sri Lanka and concomitant radicalization of sections of the Muslim community were issues that figured prominently in the post-Easter tragedy discourses. Changes in dress, topography, name boards, practices, school curriculum etc. have been discussed. In that context, the Arabic architecture in an allegedly Sharia University is very much a relevant issue. CT should not have taken it out of context.

    Minorities have ruined what was Sri Lankan culture, with their backward looking laws and practises. Sinhala Buddhist culture was primarily a matrilineal culture which gave lot of freedoms to others including women and minorities (pls see Sinhale Kandyian law – Woman under Binna marriage can keep all her property in case of separation etc.). Girl child is considered lucky in a Sinhala family, even now a family without a daughter is looked at with pity. Matara Women traditionally were considered very erudite and strong ( “Matara ammandi fame” and famous independent poetess “Gajaman Nona” who stood her ground alone against british)- unpreceded in old patriarchal cultures like Muslim, Christian and Hindu( who want to keep women veiled for sexual purposes for producing babies). Minorities have invaded us and converted this old tolerant culture to what it is today – violent and intolerant. Moral of the story – should never have let them in. now too late. Sinhala today has lost all pride in there traditions and practices and have embraced violence of these foreign cultures

    To say the least, whilst criticizing Jayampathy Wickremeratne (JW) of bias and prejudice, CT’s editorial comments are guilty of the same offense./
    Similar to JW’s body language, why did not CT recognize Rauf Hakeem’s body language? He was smiling most of the time with a benevolent and sympathetic expression? CT has also not questioned Hakeem’s presence, a man who resigned to show solidarity to a Muslim Minister and two Muslim Provincial Governors. PSC mandate Is to investigate bombers and accomplices. / It should be noted, Peradeniya hospital (Japanese), BMICH (Chinese), Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital (Japanese), Nelum Pokuna theatre (Chinese) architecture may have been influenced by cultures of donors, but none of them are based totally on Japanese or Chinese architecture/culture. Further, they were constructed with government to government grants/loans, not funding from obscure private donors with no government oversight. /
    Let alone the cities of Colombo and Peradeniya, not even the roads in which CT’s examples are located are named in Chinese or Japanese. In Kattankudy town, many roads have their names written in Arabic./
    The brainless politicians in PSC are not doing their duty. Hizbullah stated Arabic name boards, are needed to promote Arabic tourists. Reality is different. A popular haunt for a large segment of wealthy Arab tourists is in the Patpong district in Bangkok infested with drinking pars, girlie bars, and night clubs. Another segment (family) come to Sri Lanka in search of the mountains and waterfalls. Does Kattankudy have any of these attractions? Only the likes of the PSC members and Chinese with ponytails will buy a story of Arabic road signs to promote Arabic tourists./
    CT should understand, it is such biased opinions which gives ammunition to Sinhala extremists and gets the goat of the moderates

    Did anyone ask Hisbullah about his high handed actions against Tamils in the eastern province; forceful acquisition of lands belonging to Tamils and Hindu temples with his support; demolishing a Hindu temple and building a market on that land by him; appointing his cronies as heads of departments upon transferring Tamils; physical threats on Tamils by Islamic extremists etc. If there was a M.P from the eastern province in the parliamentary committee, preferably Viyalendran, Hisbullah would have faced many more difficult questions.

      Muslims have written the name boards in Arabic in the eastern province. But Sinhalese have gone beyond that by changing the names of Tamil villages and giving a new Sinhala name in the north and east.

          You have misunderstood me. May be It is my mistake. What I intended was that while Arabic is introduced in the eastern province along with other native languages, names of Tamil villages are erased and substituted with Sinhala names in the North and East . There is no difference between Muslims and Sinhalese as far as Tamils are concerned. Both have committed enough damage to Tamils.

            You are 100% correct Mayan. Recently Sirisena visited the Mullaitheevu district in the north , with regards to development, what did he do there. Opened a new Sinhalese village with out of area Sinhalese settled , on an ancient Tamil village called Amai Kulam . This village has now been renamed with a Sinhalese named Ibba Girawa or something similar. Many of the lands distributed to these out of area Sinhalese are legally owned by the Tamils who lived here and had fled, during the war and many even have the legal titles for these lands, however they have now been allowed to return to their ancient Tamil village by the occupying racist Sinhalese armed forces and now their lands and village has been settled with outside Sinhalese by the government. There is no difference between the Sinhalese and the Muslims both are now having a field day destroying ancient Hindu temple and some Tamil Christian churches and converting them to Mosques. shopping centres , beef stalls and or Buddhist Viharas. Thousand of acres of Tamil lands have been illegally acquired and many Tamils chased out of their ancient villages or not allowed to return . All in the name of Sinhalese Buddhist Fascism or Arab Islamic Wahhbi/Salafist extremism by these refugee fake Arab converted low caste South Indian immigrants. The Sinhalese were overtly and covertly supporting this Arabisation and radicalisation of these low caste converted fake Arab Dravidian South Indians , as this was used as a tool to marginalise the Tamils. This is why Sirisena ignored Hindu temple and Tamil land stealing Hisbullah’s Arabisation antics , even when he openly boasted on a video of what he did and how he is marginalising the eastern Tamil majority in the name of Islam. Instead of punishing him he rewarded his with a governor post, so that he can further marginalise the Tamils.

      Preserve your local Tamil Muslim culture, dress language and heritage not Arabic Muslim culture , dress , language , architecture and heritage. You are not Arabs bul South Asian Tamil converts to Islam and have nothing to with Arabs or Arabic culture. Islam does not mean Arabic culture and language , just because the Koran is written in old Arabic, that is only used for religious purposed and not for anything else , like Sanskrit. You don’t find Turkish , Iranian and other Muslims stating that just because they are Muslims , they have to forge their language and culture and preserve Arabic language and culture. Only you mad radicalised fake Arab Sri Lankan Muslims of Dravidian South Indian origin behave and think in this stupid manner, as you are brainwashed by your politicians and elite from cradle to worship everything Arab in the name of Islam, so that they like Rishad and Hezballah can make lots of money and have power.
