Kamer Nizamdeen Affair: Islamic Terrorist, Islamophobia Or Cover-Up?

By Suresh Gunatilake –

Kamer Nizamdeen, an alumnus of St. Thomas’s prep and the Asian International School in Colombo pursued his higher education at the University of South Wales [UNSW] in Sydney, Australia. He has been arrested on charges of planning to blow up Sydney and assassinate prominent Australians on behalf of IS or Islamic State. During the time of his arrest, he was studying at UNSW and was working on a highly classified project with the Australian police. As a cyber security expert, he was working with the Australian police to develop software for surveillance, identity theft and cyber security.

Kamer Nizamdeen

Australian media reports claim that a notebook was found that probably belonged to Kamer and handed over to the police by a colleague, which had plotting for a terror attack in Sydney. Kamer denies that the hand writing in the notebook is his. The police also claim that they found electronics, i.e. a laptop, an Xbox and a mobile phone in his apartment, which are supposed to be the sophisticated electronic gadgets that he had amassed to blow up Sydney Harbour?

Kamer hails from a very moderate and highly respected Muslim family in Sri Lanka. His grandfather was the well-known Jehan Cassim, a former Chairman of the Bank Of Ceylon, the country’s premier state bank. 

Kamer experimented with creative advertising at one of Sri Lanka’s lead advertising companies, Triad, before moving to pursue his higher studies in Australia 8 years ago.  Media, and some extremist websites including opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa’s C-News have attempted to imply that Kamer is the nephew of Minister of Sports and Provincial Councils Hon. Faizer Mustapha to create a negative image of the Government. He is in fact the Hon. Minister’s wife’s sister’s son.

I was several years senior to Kamer at St. Thomas’s Prep but adored him when I met him in Sydney in later years as a fellow Thomian and a quiet but entertaining “Thambi” who would liven up any occasion. His intellectual capacity is well above average, but an unassuming and down to earth individual. Sri Lankans and Australians who had the good fortune of interacting with Kamer will vouch that he did not have an iota of fundamentalism or Islamic extremism in him, leave alone be part of an IS terror gang. I can line up a 100 Australians and Sri Lankans with minutes to vouch for his innocence.

So, why was Kamer arrested? The mystery is complex. Was he the victim of a jealous colleague or colleagues, or did he stumble on some top secret of the Australian Government in his cyber security work for the Australian Police? Was he framed, only time will tell? 

The West has had a phobia for anyone with a Muslim name. Australia is no exception. Islamophobia and violence against Muslims have been the hallmark of racism against the Muslim community in Australia with the influx of a large number of migrants of Arab or Muslim descent. The widespread immigration from the so-called Muslim and Arab countries has caused friction between the local Australian population and other immigrants from neighbouring countries of Australia too.

Australia, which is part of the US nexus on the so-called war on terror, has managed to destroy the entire Middle Eastern economy. Libya, Iraq and Syria were once the pride of Arab development. With the “war on terror” campaign spearheaded by USA, it has reduced these countries to mere rubble.

Talking to a Muslim colleague from Sri Lanka, I gathered some interesting facts. He insists that IS is the creation of the West and was used to destroy Muslim nations. Interestingly, Sri Lanka was one of the first countries to name ISIS as not Islamic and should be considered a mere terrorists group. The Head of the Muslim theologians (ACJU) in Sri Lanka Mr. Rizvi Mufthi had over a radio broadcast declared 4 years ago that ISIS is a terrorist group and had nothing to do with Islam. Mufthi and his religious scholars have repeated this during many Friday sermons in mosques across the country.

Despite the efforts of the religious leaders, a few members of one family from Sri Lanka had joined IS in Syria. Sharfaz Nilam Muhain, a 27 year old Sri Lankan Muslim was killed while fighting with the ISIS forces. The Muslim civil society and religious leaders came out strongly against some racist groups that were trying to implicate the entire Muslim community as being sympathetic to the ISIS cause. They called upon the Government to investigate and punish any individual who may be promoting the ISIS ideology. The Government intelligence units on the orders of former defence secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa undertook a thorough investigation and found no major cause for concern. Most of the members of Sharfaz Nilam Muhain’s family too returned. They had claimed that they went to Syria to provide humanitarian support to the war affected refugees.

Sri Lanka has no sympathy for IS or any separatist or terrorist group. Kamer, or any other Sri Lankan would not have access to these ideologies in schools or universities in Sri Lanka. So, it is unlikely that a rational person like Kamer would subscribe to this violent ideology. He loved Australia as much as he loved Sri Lanka. I can confidently say, he is innocent and the courts of law in Australia will discharge him without any blemish.

      Gratien,

      He, (Wimal Buruwansa) is a gutter politician of lowest order who should not be taken seriously.

      So was George Bush and Tony of UK, of WMD notoraity, and the Australians seem to be joining in the gutter club with new revelations.

      NSW Police detective acting superintendent Michael Sheehy said investigations were in their infancy.

      “At this stage, there [are] no concerns for public safety,” he said.

      “This is clearly an offence in relation to the preparation of a document. It is not an offence in relation to capability of this individual.”

        Brilliant Suresh!
        Kamer probably found out how US and its allies are using social media and Weaponizing Religion in South Asia in the Cold War with China. So he had to be locked up.
        Kamer story is also a Fake news story as the Peace Corps. which is better called War Corp. sets up its intelligence operation to fix the elections in Sri Lanka.
        Latest Humanitarian Mission of Pacific Angel Marines and War corps is the American Corner in Matara to monitor China in Hambantota!

        Kamer probably found out how US and its allies are using social media and Weaponizing Religion in South Asia in the Cold War with China. So he had to be locked up. Attacks on Muslims in Kandy happened to protect Puppet Ranil from being impeached for the Central Bank Bondscam as the PCOI report was released to distract us all. The anti-Muslim riots and fake news was organized on Facebook.

        Kamer story is also a Fake news story — as the Peace Corps. which is better called War Corp. sets up its intelligence operation to fix the elections in Sri Lanka.

    Terrorist is highly evil and live within the person. You cannot see him and he will not declare in public or wear a label in his forehead or elsewhere. It does not matter he is wealthy, attend a great school or related to or come from a high profiled family. Terrorists believe in destruction and mayhem to achieve his or her objective. Sri Lanka, Sinhalese and Sinhala Buddhists have been the target of terrorists. All what specially the Sinhala Buddhists have to be very vigilant and understand that destructive forces live within our borders under various pretexts. They may have been trained outside the country waiting for an opportunity, just like LTTE using similar tactics..

      This is a WTF False flag moment. Anybody who has some in-depth knowledge about the covert operations the CIA/MI6/Moosad is doing in the world, knows exactly what they are trying to do to the world, its a common knowledge. Especially to the Gentile (people who are not Jewish). The people in the govt., intelligence groups may be knowledgeable about the whole thing as a hoax but they will have to keep their mouth shut and work against the society as when the govts comes under the control of the ZIONIST entity, they have to do anti social work to keep the system running to favor the ELITES. Australia is part of the ZIONIST system and its a country that was stolen from the ORIGINAL INHABITANTS who later became the foreigner or the outcast under the thieving BRITISH regime that went on destroying the poorly armed natives and seized their lands, branded them as slaves, destroyed their culture and heritage to usurp the land that was not theirs. This is an ongoing thing. So, like the 911 hoax (an inside job) that was pitted against the Muslims to use as a pretext to dismember one country after another in the Muslim world (the wars thats being waged till now, in continuity) this is also a hoax designed for the SINHALA GOVIGAMA RACISTS to start up a new ANTI ISLAMIC war where it stopped at the Gnanasara’s jail sentencing. Its getting ready for a BRAND NEW covert operation targeting Pakistan & Iran. Aussie+Lankan project funded by the US/UK/Israelites.

        “Terrorist is highly evil and live within the person” (This is an excerpt taken from the comment from BJP above)…. Exactly! we too believe it so. Whats blinding one people is that when they stand on their side and foolishly believe in the activities of their own guys as “Legitimate” the TERRORISM deceitfully becomes HEROISM. Gnanasara is an open TERRORIST and his BBS is a TERRORIST organization when his activities and past actions and the words spoken against the Muslims are taken into consideration and then when its filtered through the DEFINITION of TERRORISM he should be considered a TERRORIST………. If anything quacks like a duck and walk like a duck, it is a DUCK. Gnanasara’s mission was connected to the ZIONIST campaign and he was accorded with the FULL STATE patronage with FOREIGN TRAVEL arrangements, perks, posh vehicles, body guards and the secret service protections provided when he goes on public rampages to organize a crime….He was a state terrorist. Like the TURKEY’S terrorist hiding in the US (Fetullah Gulen) is protected by the US apparatus and is not a TERRORIST to the US. Because, he is an agent of the system. The Media belongs to the same criminals, and all they have to do is to LABEL someone as a TERRORIST when it fits the duties of their agenda. That’s all.

      even though it is probably the easiest thing today to call a Muslim a jihadist and put him in trouble, there must be an element of truth in this story. Why is he still detained and only to be produced before a magistrate in 8 weeks time? there must be more evidence incriminating Kamer, which we will learn about soon.

    Kamer and others who come to Australia – accept to be bound by Australian Subjective assessment in such issues. If Kamer truly loves Australia, he would know and accept this as part of his Australian ownership experience. Since Kamer assisted the AFP in this sensitive area – the return karma is likely to have gone against him due to victims of Australian prejudice – against minorities. In Sri Lanka – Kamer would have been protected due to his family connections. But not so those without such protection.

      Iraq and weapons of mass destruction

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

      The United States asserted that Saddam’s frequent lack of cooperation was a breach of Resolution 1441, but failed to convince the UN Security Council to pass a new resolution authorizing the use of force due to lack of evidence. Despite this, Bush asserted peaceful measures could not disarm Iraq of the weapons he alleged it to have and launched a second Gulf War instead. Later U.S.-led inspections found that Iraq had earlier ceased active WMD production and stockpiling.

        Australia, like the US, is a fundamentally racist society.
        Their immigration policy was outright racist well into the 1970s.
        Relaxation of immigration laws was owing to shortage of skilled labour, which West Europeans could not provide for Australian wages.
        Middle class immigrants from South and East Asia do not feel the pinch.
        The South Asian have bought into and surpassed Australians in their racism against the Aborigines.

    “Sri Lanka has no sympathy for IS or any separatist or terrorist group. Kamer, or any other Sri Lankan would not have access to these ideologies in schools or universities in Sri Lanka.

    How do you write the above statement. Have you ever been to Australia ?

    Are you writing this article as a “Paid Coolie” of the relevant politician?

    We can not come into judgement on these matters. It is taken over by the Australian Police. But Australia has a zero tolerance to terror activities. The police investigations and court procedures are highly reliable and objective. Therefore, my kind request is, please do not write your imaginations or others imaginations as objective evidence.

    If convicted, he faces a jail term of 15 years in prison as per the ABC News website.

    Let the Australian Police finish their investigations, they will divulge the objective information, if he is innocent, they will release him.

      Yes you are correct the Australian Federal Police are very through in their investigations and so are the Australian Judiciary. They are not afraid to give judgements against any ruling government and the police and will openly chastise them , if there was something wrong in the investigation, incorrect procedures were followed or there was any bias or prejudice. You do not find kangaroo courts like in Sri Lanka,where racism and prejudice against minorities is very rife. There were notebooks found with incriminating evidence and they would have checked the hand writing before arresting. Just because a person comes from a rich influential family or is highly educated or intelligent and shows a very tolerant veneer towards others , does not been this person has not been recruited by the ISIS and radicalised. Many of these western educated extremist are generally from these backgrounds . The other things to consider is 1) There is a large Muslim population in Sydney and many of them are highly radicalises and extremist , with many extremist Islamic fringe groups very active there. Especially around the Lakemba mosque area. This person may have come into contact with them. The AFP will not divulge anything when the investigation is on. Unlike Sri Lanka there are very professional. 2) The Muslim population in Sri Lanka , even from the most educated and rich upper class families are now highly radicalised in general . In the Tamil north and east, especially in the east it has gone to the extreme but this is fairly obvious in the Sinhalese areas too. Just look at the way they now dress behave and their general aggression, arrogance and disdain towards non Muslims. The extremist Salafist/Wahhabi Islamic ideology has taken over. Thanks to aid and funds from certain Gulf Arab nations and Porkistan.

        A generation ago these people were very Tamil , despite not identifying themselves as Tamils and were following the 1000 year old Tamil Sufi Islam that they brought with them from their original South Indian homeland. Now they largely follow Salafist/Wahhabi Arab desert culture and consider themselves as Arabs. . Thanks to their selfish power hungry politicians and elite who have brainwashed them , especially their masses to hate their actual ancient and rich Dravidian Tamil ethnicity/identity and worship everything remotely connected with Western Asia and the Arabs and consider themselves as people of Western Asia origin /heritage and belong to some sort of imagined Pan Islamic identity and ethnicity. This is the result. This is the tip of the iceberg. In the Sinhalese south this radicalisation is contained, due the fear of the Sinhalese areas. However in the Tamil areas it is very open and they openly show their hatred and disdain towards the indigenous Tamils , whose ancestors, gave their ancestors refuge a few centuries ago , when they fled from persecution. As they feel the Tamils are now powerless. There are sections in the west who do not like Muslims , as they feel they do not integrate and want to impose their medieval culture on the rest of the population but this does not affect the rule of the law or law and order in these lands.

    Writer has given a clean certificate to Kamer. I hope and pray that Australian investigations and Judicial system will find him clean for young man’s , the family’s and Sri Lanka’s sake. The Australian systems are one of the fairest in the world.Our prayers are with the family during this difficult time.
    Coming back to the article, there are instances where the Writer’s objectivity and accuracy may be subjected to intellectual scrutiny too, e.g.”Australia….. has managed to destroy the entire Middle Eastern economy”; and again ” Sri Lanka was one of the countries to name ISIS is not Islamic…” etc.
    Let us not forget that vigilance is the eternal price that stable countries have to pay for staying free of terrorism. Sri Lanka put its guard down and suffered for 30 tearful years till the heroic self sacrifice of our soldiers, sailors, airmen/women, STFrs and civil defense personnel coupled with the strong political will of the then leadership saved us from the grips of terrorism.
    Vigilance, military intelligence , and continuing to keep the tri- Forces strong even during peace and reconciliation building while allowing time and space for democratic debate in and out of Parliament are key to sustenance of democratic way of life and long term national harmony.

      Sri Lanka suffered for 30 years , due to state sponsored Sinhalese terrorism and genocidal activities against the island’s Tamils , that was carried from the day of independence by the Sri Lankan state its Sinhalese armed forces , police and establishment and is still continuing. Do not try hide this fact and distort the truth. The LTTE is the child of state sponsored Sinhalese racism. However many Sinhalese do not want to acknowledge this truth and conveniently try to hide what they did to the Tamils as a fight against terrorism. Tamils were fighting for their own just rights in their own land. This land is a not a Sinhalese Buddhist land , like most Sinhalese and the Sri Lankan government wants to portray. Large parts of the island was Tamil from ancient times and was ruled by Tamils. They were not trying to create chaos in the rest of the world or terrorise others in the name of a religion or ideology. Most people in the west recognised this and never considered the LTTE as a terrorist organisation or in par with Islamic terrorism . This is why around 1 million Sri Lankan Tamils were provided asylum in the west. As for the so called heroic sacrifice of the Sri Lankan armed forces the least said the better. The vast majority of them were racist war criminals , who deliberately killed raped tortured humiliated and committed all sorts of atrocities and war crimes on the island’s Tamil population , under the excuse of fighting terrorism. This is why the UN is investigating. The LTTE is gone for 9 years , yet there is no reconciliation or the racism against the island’s Tamils have ceased. Proving it was not the LTTE that was the cause of the problem. Many Sinhalese still cunningly and craftily try to equate the Tamil fight for justice in their own land with the world wide Islamic terrorism , to hide what they did to the Tamils. Most people do not buy this. The LTTE are no saints but most of amount of terror and atrocities during the war was not committed by them but the Sri Lankan state and armed forces and 99% of the victims were Tamils

    Suresh Gunatilake,
    I believe that Kamar, in all probability, is innocent. Aussie Islamophobia has hit the fan and is beginning to spread. Nevertheless, some insinuations by the author warrant intervention.
    The argument that Kamer was preened at the elite St. Thomas’ Prep and eventually polished by Goolbai Gunasekara at the Asian International School and therefore cannot be a member of the ISIS has its problems. After all, Sharfaz Nilam Muhsin studied at Trinity and ended up with a career at the ISIS. So much for preening and polishing.
    The point that ISIS is a creation of the West is double-edged. A popular argument, especially among Muslims, is that ISIS was created by the West to destroy the Muslims. Back in 2001, a similar point of view took hold among the Muslims along the lines that the attack on the World Trade Centre in New York was carried out by the LTTE! Indeed, such points of view are taken by non-violent Muslims in order to protect themselves since there is an overwhelming stereotype of the Muslims as violent people. Sadly, even Azath Sally went to town on this. Addressing the Sinhalese, Azath Sally argued that the Muslims played an instrumental role in the defeat of the LTTE because it was a Muslim MP – Seyed Ali Zahir Moulana – who helped Karuna to breakaway and thereby ensure the defeat and destruction of the LTTE. Azath was scoring brownie points for his community and currying for favour among the Sinhalese.
    The ISIS was a creation of the West. Unlike the popular argument that it was Israel that created ISIS to destroy the Muslims, the creation of the ISIS lies in Western colonialism and Ottoman empire building. Indeed, if one were to pinpoint things, the finger could be pointed at the 1916 Sykes–Picot Agreement for the creation of the ISIS.

    For some western politicians every thing that comes today from the Muslim world is suspicious..
    Yet ; they have quickly forgotten their past history..
    How Spanish Muslim rule helped the European renaissance.
    Ungrateful European poltiicans now want to destroyed the entire Middle East..
    So; this boy is a victim of this long crusade of some radical western politicians ..
    How and why a boy who works for Austrian policy could do this ..
    It looks some enemies of this boy planned this conspiracy to do this .
    God knows.
    Truth will come out .
    Sri Lanka Muslim community is cleaver enough to know the danger of any radical groups.
    We will never support any radical groups on this soil.
    Today; radicalism and extrmism have become a joke for some politicians to use it as an excuse to kill any one ..
    Saudi today announced that it wants to kill one prominent Islamic schoalrs for just tell the Saudi and Qatar to come to table and short out their problems..
    This is the world we live in ..
    Better not to talk..
    Freedom is limited to some who got power ..
    Poor will be penalised for any utterance ..weak will be punished for any mistakes

      Although we are not sure yet, kamer is not a victim of the Crusades. he is the victim of his fellow Muslims who distracted him from a successful career and coaxed him into planning a terrorist attack. Muslims have been very ungrateful guests in the countries that welcome them : look at September 11, or the California couple who shot up a party. these were all people welcomed by the USA. kamer may have thought that he would punish the country that helped him so much.

      “How Spanish Muslim rule helped the European renaissance”

      The Europeans translated the works of Ibn Rushd/Averroes and other Islamic philosophers, whereas the Ulama, the curse of Islamic science, got the rulers, to burn the works of the philosophers. So they missed reaching the age of reason and enlightenment, whereas the Europeans got there 500 years ago, and advanced to the age of reason and enlightenment. In the Islamic world, Ulama prevailed through the rulers.

      In all the struggles endured by free thinkers in which they were either killed or exiled, we find the same elements of decline no matter the time or place. This includes the time and place of the struggle of Abul Walid Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Ibn Rushd (1126 -1198), or Averroes in the Latinised form of his name.

      Ibn Rushd is the most capable rationalist philosopher in the history of Arab civilisation, and the best versed on the achievements of his age and the ages before him.

      A final reason offered was Ibn Rushd’s book The Incoherence of the Incoherence, in which he responded to the fallacies of Abu Hamid al-Ghazali’s The Incoherence of Philosophers. He did this despite knowing Ghazali was the master of the Almohad dynasty who were in power, and believed the earth was located between the horns of a bull.

    Any innocent must be investigated and released. We too concerned a young life being hurt without any truth. A Brooklyn Judge, three years ago, when Rohan and other Sinhala Government’s coolies framed on Tamils as whole, he declared so. His statement was an ailing defeat for the Lankawe Muslim-Sinhala Chaitanya and Yahapalanaya governments. Appe Anduwas has long History of even before they used Rishard, Hakeem, and Kathirgamar for framing cases, using Muslim civilians. Aanduwa’s and Athulathmutali’s game caused Tigers one-sidedly expel the Northern Muslim Community.

    In the East, many innocents people lands were forcefully plugged out as cost of shipping and they were put on the fishing boats by Rapist Navy under the order of Princes and let to float on the high sea. Australia had a long history being accused of working with Appe Aanduwa to secretly and bomb refugee ships on the tip of Lankawe Rapist Navy. So far Australia has provided justice only to one Tamil. That is Kumar Gunaratnam. When Old King’s and Prince White Van kidnapped him, Australian embassy got involved by the request of his Sinhala wife, misunderstanding him to be Sinhalese. But he is the real terrorists, JVP’s factional leader. For all the injustice Australia committed on Tamils, it is the Muslim Sinhala Appe Aanduwa’s interference in Australian justice system is the reason. Many INGO produced pictures of the refugees deported by Austrian brutal government were Bar-B-Qued by the Rapist Defense in the 4th floor. But the Royal Family and Royal Navy kept receiving gift, donations and freebees from Australian government, even after 42 leaders and commanders were accused by OISL as War Criminals.
    It is the Tamils who have the upper hand of knowledge of being framed and tortured. This world famous touching said be forced the Tamil rebels carry a Cyanide Capsule ever ready. So we Tamils understand if this framing victim how painful it can be for this young man.

    everything revolves around the notebook it seems.That is the only evidence against him.He has denied the handwriting and handwriting experts can check it.If they find it is not his then they have to free him.simple as that.If it is his handwriting he may go to prison.However i am a bit suspicious of the police behaviour.Why did they say he has travelled to other countries giving the impression that it is muslim countries whereas the family clarified it is the US.Also they say they took a lot of electronic equipment and family says it is laptop,mobile and X box all which an average australian will have.

    So why is the police trying to give this wrong impression to the public that they have caught the correct fellow.Those who think that the australian police are squeaky clean are living in cuckoo land.They certainly don’t shoot prisoners saying that they tried to throw a grenade,but they are not saints.When they go to arrest people they shoot them dead if they are with a knife etc,even women.

      “So why is the police trying to give this wrong impression to the public that they have caught the correct fellow.Those who think that the australian police are squeaky clean are living in cuckoo land.”

      This is a pathetic false flag operation, and all they have is ISIS and the claimed notebooks. So they are hunting for clues fro his computer, to latch on to something.

      Perhaps they should latch on to the genocide done to the Australian aborigines.

      Yes, Those who think that the australian police are squeaky clean are living in cuckoo land..

    Issues aside anyone who has the knowledge or lived in both countries very well know The Judiciary is much more alive, healthy and vibrant in Australia than in Lanka.If anyone has doubts please ask Faizer Mustapha who him self is a lawyer.If it was during the previous regime this kid would have been thrown inside the prison and would not have had a chance for any legal assistance or worse would have been shot dead because the cops found a weapon( of course planted) in his possession, unless Faizer decided to give up his dignity just like GLP. As long I am aware Aussies are fortunate to not have a Sarath or Mohan or GLP yet. So stop screaming and count the blessings.

    How many times we have heard deportations being stopped in the eleventh hour or plane carrying
    returning refugees being ordered to return back, by the courts. Now have anyone heard these kind of incidents taking place in Lanka, leave alone a common man getting a fair trial in Lanka it self is doubtful.A country where the CJ , her self was thrown out and threatened with imprisonment ,SF was put in prison by the kangaroo courts on framed charges, all because of a pathetic country full of pathetic people.

    Australia should learn it’s lesson today and deal with this boy the right way. We know there are human rights but inside Prisons it’s a different ball game.

    They should put him together with the sodomites and allow nature takes it’s course. If he prefers picking up Rexona soap over Dove, so be it. But when he starts screaming the name of Allah (SBUH) they can use to as evidence to connect him with the ISIS.

        I am a former soldier. I have never been in prison and never will. Soldiers young and old are never afraid to die. You will not understand this because you have never been a soldier.

    There is racism in the Police force the world over. Clearly visible in US but somewhat down played in UK. The brutality of the mono-race Myanmar Police is mentioned in the UN.
    Is there racism in Australian Police?
    Australian Police dogs are trained to attack aborigines.
    Look at the 2014 Sydney hostage crisis, in which on 15–16 December 2014 a lone gunman, Man Haron Monis, held hostage ten customers and eight employees of a Lindt chocolate café located at Martin Place in Sydney, Australia. At one stage a gunshot was heard, Police stormed, shot Monis dead. Two hostages died, one by Monis and another off police bullet ricochet.
    Tony Abbott termed this ‘terrorism’ and used this in the husting. Later it turned out that Monis was known to the police because of his rants on his website. Monis was rated as a case of ‘a rare mix of extremism, mental health problems and plain criminality’.
    Incidents that stand out but not mentioned! There were two Indian hostages. The families and the Indian HC were in contact with the police. When the crisis ended some of the hostages were literally carried out by the police. BUT the Indian hostages were ordered to lie down, thoroughly frisked and allowed out.
    .
    Suresh Gunatilake’s question: “Kamer Nizamdeen Affair: Islamic Terrorist, Islamophobia Or Cover-Up?”
    Kamer can be presumed innocent. He was probably arrested because of his name.

    It all depends on how terrorism is defined.
    Are denial of lands and homes one group possessed, denial of livelihoods of one group, evicting peoples on false claims from lands they lived on for decades, forcible taking over of employment avenues, terrorism?
    Are shooting citizens dead on slightest pretexts, terrorism.
    In Australia, such things do not happen.

      What about the Aborigines ? Have you not heard about the “stolen generations” , and the mass eviction of indigenous persons from land they had occupied for thousands of years ?

    I hope this young man is innocent and will be found innocent by the courts for not just his sake but for his parents’ sake. Why a person who is so versed in technology would use a pen and paper notebook, did he copy down security information? Like Chelsea Manning did he want to blow the whistle? I sincerely hope not.

    “Media, and some extremist websites including opposition MP Wimal Weerawansa’s C-News have attempted to imply that Kamer is the nephew of Minister of Sports and Provincial Councils Hon. Faizer Mustapha to create a negative image of the Government. He is in fact the Hon. Minister’s wife’s sister’s son”

    This is not a time to prove your favor on the present government but this is the time to work to expose the truth about how Wahhabism has been spreading into Sri Lanka through some redical Islamic connection globally.
    “He is in fact the Hon. Minister’s wife’s sister’s son” so the person is closed with the minister – no doubt.
    Hispulla, a Sri Lankan minister has building a university in Batticalo by his own money. We all have to think that how was this possible? Who has been financing for this? What is the motivation behind this? We have many respected universities in Sri Lanka then why they are building a new one for muslims only? Undoubtedly, after 10 years, eastern province will be a cradle for Wahhabism which is ideologicaly defend Islamic terrorism globally.

    In Tamil, there is a saying to us in practice. “you have to build a bridge before flooding. The flood of Islamic terrorism definitely will knock all Sri Lankan doors one day. Probably soon because there are many Kamer Nizamdeens among us invisibly. People like Kamer Nizamdeen is a sleeper-cells of ISIS. Sri Lanka must strengthen its state intelligent networks to find out these sleeper-cells, specially eye on Muslim ministers.
