Kattankudy CSOs Say “We Are Ashamed”; Reveal Zahran Hashim’s Violent History

At a time when our motherland, Sri Lanka, is grieving at the tragic deaths of our Christian brothers and sisters, and also other innocents from this country and abroad, who have fallen victims to the atrocities of terrorists in certain parts of this country, we release this communiqué with a heavy heart, while expressing our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and those suffering at hospitals.

Muslims in Sri Lanka have always been peace-loving and proved to be loyal to this country. Even at times when our people were massacred in hundreds while worshipping in mosques, our properties were destroyed and evacuated from our homes we maintained peace and tranquility. We did not turn against our motherland or people in this beautiful country. We never resorted to violence. The Muslims in the East, particularly in Kattankudy were supportive to this country at hard times and moreover, we were very quick in re-establishing the rapport with you brothers and sisters forgetting all what happened during the war time and thereafter.

Zahran Hashim

But the recent series of bombings in the churches in Kochikade, Negombo, Batticaloa and the hotels in Colombo have brought a disgrace on us. We feel ashamed. A feeling of guilt is frustrating us when we hear that this act of terrorism has been reportedly committed by a very few radical elements suspected to be from Kattankudy also.

The leaders or the people in Kattankudy had never entertained these suspected radical individuals at any point in the history. The suspected mastermind of these attacks on innocent people, Zahran Hashim was once a student at Jamiathul Falah Arabic College in Kattankudy. Owing to his misconduct, radical and controversial views and his disobedience to the lecturers and management, he was dismissed from the college in 2005.

After some time, he started his instigating speeches on his own. Most of civil and religious organizations in Kattankudy put pressures on him to stop his hate speech. Some institutions went even to the extent of making police complaints to stop police permissions for his loud speakers and his centre. The registration of his centre was stopped. Recommendation for fund raising for construction of his centre was denied.

In 2017, Zahran’s radical speech led to violence and extremism and most of his hardcore followers were arrested and put behind bars based on a case filed against them at the Magistrate Court of Batticaloa. His hardcore supporters were remanded for six months while Zahran was absconding. He then fled the area and went into hiding and it was unfortunate that he was not arrested until this tragic incident.

Being in an undisclosed location, he started his venomous campaigns on social media. Sensing the perennial threat of his campaign to the peace and security of this country, we alerted the security authorities. Several petitions were sent up to the last moment by several responsible members of this community. But the steps to apprehend him were dragging and we could not understand why he could not be arrested. The mistake every one of us made is that we did not precisely understand the magnitude of his planning and affiliations.

Now he has become a threat to every one of us. Though he is reported to have been killed, we have to be vigilant and foresee atrocities of same nature in the future too. As a terrorist organization operating in several parts of the world has claimed responsibility for the recent attacks, extra vigilance is needed. We can expect that some anti-social elements could make use of this situation to create a communal riot among communities to disturb the prevailing ethnic harmony.

We as a responsible organization would like to pledge our Sri Lankan brothers and sisters that the Sri Lankan Muslims at no instance will support any forms of terrorism and will always stand together with you for a better Sri Lanka. Also please accept our sincere call to bring about peace and harmony and prosper this beautiful country with our peaceful co-existence and hard-work.
We could feel the trauma you all have been undergoing and once again, we express our condolences to the families of the victims and pray the almighty God for their speedy recovery and at the same time. We also would like to emphasis that we feel the greatness of our Christian brothers and sisters who are showing the highest human qualities even at a hard time.

        Should we trust the Tamils!. The answer is should the Tamils trust you Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and the opportunistic fake Arab converted low caste Dravidian immigrant Indian Tamil Muslims who from the time of independence connived with each other to marginalise , discriminate ethnically cleanse and commit war crimes on the island’s Tamils. Tamils and Saivaism are indigenous the island and have a history far older than Sinhalese or Buddhism. The native language of the island Elu is a semi Tamil Dravidian dialect from which old Sinhalese Hela( mixture of Elu+ Prakrit) originated. Hela like Elu and the Vedda dialect were all very close to their Tamil mother compared to modern Sinhalese , that has now been deliberately Sanskritsed. Yet even now 35% of Sinhalese vocabulary is still derived from Tamil and its grammar, lexicon, syntax and alphabet is purely derived from Tamil and not from Sanskrit of Pali. Most of the present day people who identify themselves as Sinhalese are of Tamil descent . 50% of them from recent Indian Tamil immigrants. All Sinhalese led governments , the establishment as well as the Island’s selfish and opportunistic Muslim politicians and elite , deliberately encouraged the radicalisation and Arabisation of the island’s Muslims to deliberately distance them from their actual Tamil and Tamil Sufi Islamic roots. Especially in the east. They brainwashed the island’s Muslim masses , 99.99% of them who have no Arab at all but are 100% Tamil to hate their rich Tamil and 1000 year old very tolerant Sufi Tamil Islamic heritage and worship everything Arab. Go the eastern province the traditional Sufi Mosques and the Tamil Islamic culture is now struggling to exist and are now constantly under attack by the Wahhabi/Salafists , who were supported by the government and funded by certain fundamentalist Islamic nations.

          ——–
          So What? Sinhalayo were smart enough to borrow whenever the necessity arose. That is how most of the languages have flourished. There are hardly any pure languages in this world. Prof. J.B. Disanayake who is an authority in this subject says Sinhala language has unique features. Don’t you know that Sinhala language is not spoken anywhere in the world. May be Sinhalayo are aliens landed from Mars.
          Borrowing few words from Tamil does not imply that Sinhalayo are descendants of Tamils. Linguists have identified Sinhala as an Aryan language, not Dravidian.

            Sinhalese came from today’s Kerala…Kandy Sinhalese came from Tamil speaking South Indian Manawadus from today’s Andhara Pradesh.

            This is why these SL political leaders often run to Thirupathi temple built by Tamil Kings .

            Do you believe that your great-g-g-g-g father was a Lion?

            Mahavamda is a comic book simply hide about the ancient language.,religion of Kuweni,Nagas,Jakas.

            Don’t parade your ignorance here.

            Can you tell why you eat Kerala food,follow Kerala Tradition, Dress,Religious practice.

          Siva Sankaran Sharma & chola,

          At least I found 2 to bind left/right sides to pull my block cart.

          “Tamils and Saivaism are indigenous”, all know that the Dutch grabbed the lands from poor original Sinhalese farmers to settle their imported slaves of Tamil Nadu & Malabar low-castes, who watered their tobacco plants. Let’s not dig deep in there.

          Looks like Muslims had been a biggest factor of barrier for Tamil homeland dreamers. At least this what I can notice through all those hatred put out by the comments?

                  Cholan, firs study Islam thoroughly and comment. Islam preach only to worship only the creator of the universe, earth and living things. For us Muslim Allah is a great power without any form, birth or death. Those days the Arabs who were used to Idols purely for making money brought these idol worship back in the form tombs of saint building stories of their power purely to fill the till like what is happening today. When Wahab found increase of these malpractices with help of then ruler smashed all tombs and brought punishment to those who preach or practice these. Worshipping saints, tombs and idols is “shirk” in Islam, that is a sin. The rogue priest in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and others countries promoted this purely to make money. Now in Dewatagaha (Eye Hospital junction) people flock that tomb in the mosque. Who benefit? Only the trustee. Even the bone of whoever buried won’t be there. These money making priest had made the people Modayas. A true Muslim who follow pure Islam in Sri Lanka usually branded Wahabi. Even in these columns many had branded me Wahabi. So in these technologically advanced atomic age anybody trying to promote these and those who believe these are number one modayas. Only cow urine drinking, penis, yoni (cunt), all types of idol worshipping donkeys believe in supernatural intervention. I won’t, a true Muslim believer wont. MAD MAN in Mecca – now more than half of the world population believe in what he revealed, it increasing. Don’t write looted and destroyed, it was you devils looted chased and destroyed Muslim’s belongings. It was that Karmam you are actually reaping now. For you to write ‘wait and see’ you must be knowing what you bastards are planning to bring disharmony. We are not scared of anybody to change way of our life.

        -you promoted wahabism among Muslims who identified as tamils first then as a Muslims to identify them as pure and pure muslim.

        -you did this to isolate muslims from tamils, sadly it backfired.

        -majority of muslims are with tamils (never seen since 1990), but colombo Muslims like you will lick sinhalese boots for money so its no surprise..

          If you ask an Arab who are you they will answer I am Arab or Syrian Arab. Palestinian, Jordanian, Egyptian etc. Then if you ask what is your religion they will answer Muslim . Christian , Druze ETC. The same with a Turk, or Malay, a Bengali, and all others. The ethnicity or race take precedence over the religion. However is you now ask a Tamil Muslim in Sri Lanka , deliberately and incorrectly called a Moor in Sri Lanka to divide and rule the Tamils, they will immediately say I am a Muslim and outsiders get baffled , they say , that is your religion but what is your ethnicity or race. Again they say I belong to the Muslim race or ethnicity and these people are speechless. Only in Sri Lanka for dirty divide and rule policy first by the British, then by the Sinhalese and the .selfish , power/money hungry ,Colombo/Kandy Muslim ruling classes , a section of the Tamils whose religion is Islam have been made into to separate race or ethnicity and then to justify they are called Moors with a fake Arab ancestry created for them. A little bit of Arab amongst a few hundred families does not make them Arab nor the rest of the Muslims in the island Moor or Arab. The Malay and the Gujarathi Shia Borah Muslims correctly use their ethnicity as their primary identification. If you want a separate identity from your fellow Christian /Hindu Tamils it is fine but it should be based on the truth and real origin not on a lie. In order to justify this fake Arab origin , they have pathetically tried to make themselves look like Arabs , dress and behave like them and follow their form of brutal intolerant Islam and have discarded everything Tamil about them, dress , customs, even the 1000 year old very tolerant Tamil Sufi Islam and are now trying to destroy the island’s ancient Tamil language and heritage and people , just to prove a point that they are indeed Arabs. What a sad pathetic people.

            SSS Australoid crow, you don’t know what you are writing and all explanation based on hates and jealousy toward Muslims. Idiot first know Muslim is not a religion but a term collectively called for those who follow the religion Islam. Turk, Malay etc. is their ethnicity not religion. Why Muslim are called Moors? That is because of the big differences they had compared to natives (including Tamils). Their culture was comaprable to North African Muslim whom the Whites called Moors so they called these Sri Lankan Muslims Moors. Also know that Sufism is not from Tamils. Origin of Sufism was in Turkey and spread to other countries. Shia refers to a sect and there can be Sri Lankan Shia Muslims, Indian Shia Muslims, Malay Shia Muslims etc. Borah are Dawoodi Shias but they prefer to call themselves Borah. There is Ismaili sect also known as Borah. People living in Tureky known as Turks, Malaysia known as Malays and in Sri Lanka known as Sri Lankan. If you get hold of an Indian from any part of India and asked who they are, they will say Indian but not their ethnicity. Same here. This term Moor not kept by Muslim themselves but by the Portuguese and Dutch. They are very brainy race unlike you tree climbing Australoids. If we had the same similarity and culture they would have called us Tamils. But they did not because our differences were like ground and sky. DON’T WRITE BULL SHIT YOU DONKEY.

              What is your ethnicity ????? this is the question.

              A PERSON WHO SPEAK TAMIL WITH HIS / HER MOTHER IS A “TAMIL”

              Your people are very brainy this is why they have targeted worshipers and tourists why can t they attack Police or Army posts afraid ????

              Your people are suffering today for what they have done to Tamils in the last 30 years with Sinhala Cardboard forces .

              Exactly they suffer today what Tamils have suffered in the hand of Sinhala cardboard forces in the past and you all deserve it.

        Who is a real Sri Lankan? The Vedda or people who migrated from South India recently, who now make up the vast majority of the present day Sinhalese and 99% of the Sri Lankan Musims( You) . You are the real Sri Lankans but the island’s Tamils who have lived here from ancient times and owned and ruled their lands in the north east and north west coast and gave refuge when you fake Arab converted Dravidian South Indian low castes fled from you South India homeland are not. If you people are real Patriotic Sri Lankans , then why do you people worship everything Arab , including Wahhabism and want to destroy the island for Wahhabism and Arabism ? If you are a real Sri Lankan you will respect your own Tamil language , people and the native Tamil Sufi Islamic culture , instead of trying to destroy it. There was no country called Sri Lanka until the British artificially created a new colony called Ceylon in 1833 , by merging the Sinhalese and Tamil parts of the island that had remained separate until then and then handing over power to their Sinhalese darlings , with no adequate protection for the island’s Tamils. They had no right to have done it. They should have divided the island as they found or separated the island to its Sinhalese and Tamil parts just like they found. Actual Sri Lankan indeed? You are actually a fake Arab low caste immigrant Dravidian South Indian convert to Islam

      You never trusted Muslims anyway.

      Some Tamils also considered every LTTE’s terrorist attack was an inch closer to liberation (whatever that is).

      Didn’t some Tamils who were under LTTE control celebrate the assassinations of Rajiv Gandhi, Premadasa, ……………. publically at the instigation of LTTE local commanders?

      Didn’t Sinhalese celebrate the death of you leader with fire crackers?

      There is no difference among Sinhalese, Muslims, Tamils, ………… when it comes to terrorising, destruction, …. and glorifying it because they share the stupid gene.

    A very important statement and the right answer to IS.

    IS-terrorists with their insane brains worldwide try to produce instability and hatred among religious groups, which increases instability even more.

    If you are sincerely and genuinely ashamed of the roles played by your sons and daughters to bring death and destruction to innocent citizens of our motherland, then the best way that you can demonstrate your remorse and contrition is to quickly change the image of your town from being perceived as an extremist Arab Muslim enclave to it’s former state of being just another Muslim Sri Lankan town.
    Why have you included Arabic on your street nameboards when Sinhala, Tamil and English are the only recognized national languages ?
    Even the languages on the welcome column at the entrance to your town includes Arabic
    Why did you tolerate the growing of Date Palm trees in the centre of your main road ?
    Why have you encouraged the people of Kattankudy to dress as Muslim Arabs ?
    Wasn’t the dress styles of Muslim Sri Lankans modest enough for your religious leaders ?
    The people of Kattankudy have collectively contributed to the development of their town as an extremist Arab enclave. This is the sad truth.
    Therefore all of you are guilty of inadvertently creating the environment that encouraged the emergence of this group of Islamic terrorists.
    Please strip away the Arab influence on your town and become loyal, patriotic sons and daughters of Mother Lanka again.

      Yes, I am from Kattankudy and of the same opinion. Maybe that politician should understand this brother. Whatever the government in power he is there. In the last election people in Kattankudy defeated him and it the president who brought him back. Please do understand the realities. WE are helpless.

      Saudi money made these jokers to pretend Arabs.

      These men an women jokers dressed like Saudi Bedouins but talk in Tamil .

      He He He

      Musulims in SL are all converted Tamil Hindus every musulim village in the East has got pure Tamil names a land occupied by Tamils before these pests colonized and multiplied like Pigs.

      Tamil Mukuwa chiefs allowed these pests to live here so today Tamils are suffering.

      Every Musulim knows about this terrorists but they don’t want to expose them this is how their patriotism works.

      Kattankudy CSOs,

      Thanks for your article. However, you have let the Satan, Iblis, following, per prescient Hadith of Najd, by Prophet Mohamed (PBUH), Wahabbi Salafies and clones such as Tauheheed Jamats , to wreck the Muslims, by attacking the peace loving Sufis, Shia and Ahmedia, based on the instructions to Wahhabi Salafies from the Devil, Satan.

      What is the need to follow the 7th Century Arabian peninsular culture, that is unsuitable to Lanka? Instructions from the Satan following Wahhabies?

      You, or anyone can pray to God, directly. You don’t need the Wahhabies. You only need Wahhabies to get to Satan and commit crimes and terrorism.

      Get your women to discard the Goni Billa Dress, the Abaya , the Nijab, and wear the traditional saree or Salvar Kameez, like the Pakistanis are wearing.

      Make the statement, God does not care about clothing, as long as you are covered modestly.

      Did you evolve from primates? Please check your chromosome no. 2, for fusion of two primate chromosomes.

    Foreign Journalists are asking when ISIS is almost destroyed in the Middle east why this bombing took less media publicity in the world than the Christ Church or the NOTREDAM fire. a decimated organization in the middle east carried out well organized attacks in Sri lanka. How come. A foreign journalist is asking.Months ago, TRUMP asked Europe to deal with all the ISIS members that came back to EUROPE. I think nothing happened.

    I refer to the current and previous posts. We seem to be demonising Muslim leaders by choosing to forget how Tamil and Sinhalese leaders behaved in the face of terror in their midst. The UNP after unleashing state terrorism on the Tamils then tried to make deals with terrorists. During the last JVP insurgency the SLFP gave respectability to running with the hare and hunting with the hounds. There was a good deal of this in the universities.
    Tamil leaders who want certain Muslim leaders investigated for ties with extremism forget what they did when arrested LTTEers came to them for help.
    They forget how Tamil leaders went on their knees before the LTTE which roped them into the TNA almost soon after it killed a succession of Tamil leaders ending with Neelan in 1999. Some were even forced to spy for the LTTE and to support its propaganda, particularly its disgraceful treatment of civilians during the finale of 2009.
    Muslim politicians are no more saints than their Sihalese or Tamil counterparts. But if we forget our own past, deceit and double standards, and demonise them, we will keep breeding terrorists without an end. It is time to be reflective and considerate.

    Dear Kemo, you have raised a very interesting and important question? WHY ARABIC Named board ? I don’t Whereas only three languages, Sinhalese, Tamil and English, are in practice in Sri Lanka. I don’t understand. The Prophet Mohammed only knew Arabic, the God’s message to him was supposed be in Arabic. If he was able to speak Chinese,then message to him would have been in that language. People of Kataankudy please come to real life. Don’t be laughing stool.

      Ahmad Nadvi, if God’s message (the Quran) can be translated into Sinhala, Tamil and English, why should roads be named in Arabic? In some Muslim majority countries, Indian population outnumber locals. Do you see any roads in such countries named in Hindi, Tamil, Gijarati or what ever? Chinese and Japanese roads built in Sri Lanka with their aid can have road name in their respective languages besides our own official languages. But there is no justification in naming roads in Kattankudiya in Arabic other than to send a message, those who live there do not owe there allegiance to this country. Do not take undue advantage of liberal laws in this country. It will eventually end up in tears.

    The Q is how did all that bomb making material, none of which is manufactured in the country, come INTO the country in such large quantities PAST the Customs? And, how is it all this activity, in several parts of he country, go unknown,unseen and unheard of by the Police,the Grama sevakayas (Village Headman)local Councils etc etc.??The answer in one word CORRUPTION.
    When SL got rid of the Burghers the country lost some of he best top Police brass;
    When you got rid of the Tamils- the country lost it’s best administrators and police
    sleuths. When you loose such quality and dedicated service men the inevitable is
    chaos,corruption etc. And this is the FACT.Left alone to govern, the Sinhalese are
    fumbling, with the politicians a corrupt lot,robbing the beautiful country/people of everything they can lay their hands on. It’s time the people woke up though perhaps a little late ?. Arul

      Sinhalese are not fumbling. The country was on the path to becoming another Singapore until the LTTE began their militant campaign. Even with the civil war, SL is far better off than many parts of India, in terms of hygiene, literacy, and ethnic tolerance. The problem for SL has been foreign invaders, from Eelara to Portugese/Dutch/British, and then after that, how to accommodate various minorities under an artificial, Western system of government known as “Westminster.” Remember, this country was ruled by kings for thousands of years. So there is a still a strong preference among the masses to be ruled by a strongman. If people are to live in a democracy, they should be educated in that direction, and understand/respect the corresponding rule of law. What we have now are opportunists in power – in the government – who take advantage of the common man’s ignorance.

        Singapore leaders never suffered with majority mentality like your people this is the reason for their success.

        Late Lee once said to Premadada you can not build a country when the minority are in tears.

        Singapore has given so many to Tamils there. The longest served President was Mr.Nathan a Tamil
        The father of the current President M&s.Halima Yaqoob is a Tamil..so many Tamil ministers including deputy PM.

        SINGAPORE AIRLINES from the beginning was managed by Tamils.
        Result one of the best AIRLINES in the world today look at your airline how many Tamils are there???Pure racism

        Any mentioned above possible in this cursed country ????

            In Singapore Muslims have contributed a lot for Tamil language and culture because they know once they were HINDU TAMILS .

            of Tamil language and Culture…he has formed a TRUST in his birth place KEELAKARAI in TN
            which is funding for search of submerged Tamil cities there in the sea.

          Singapore had race riots in 1964 and 1969. There is still some discrimination when it comes to housing. Anyway, here is a nice quote for you. In 1992, in a parliamentary speech, MP Choo Wee Khiang remarked ‘one evening, I drove to Little India [an Indian shopping enclave and popular tourist destination in Singapore] and it was pitch dark but not because there was no light, but because there were too many Indians around’.

              Because Sinhalese are not originally descended from Aboriginals. Aborigines and Tamils migrated from east Africa through an island in the Indian ocean called “Kumarkundam” in Tamil mythology.

                Ignorant racist , most probably descended from one of these recently Sinhalised low caste South Indian imports now beating the Sinhalese Aryan drum. Other than very recent migration from Africa that took place only in the past few centuries , the ancestors of everyone migrated from Africa at the same time. The European , the Chinese, the Australian Aborigine, the Eskimo, the Dravidian or the Melanesian or whoever. We all have the same amount of African DNA/Gens from this original migration. For your information the Indian subcontinental population hardly have any DNA contribution from modern African migration. They have Australoid genes but not modern African genes. Indian Australoid itself is different from Australian Australoid. ,as from ancient times they have got mixed with Causcasoid and east Asian genes. Australian Australoids only got mixed up with largely European genes very recently. It is the descendants of Modern Europeans and Western Asians , especially the Arabs who have a lot of admixture from modern Africans. This is due to slave taking and migrations. Go the Arabian Gulf or even to many other North African Arab/Berber nations , even in plaes like Palestine and Lebanon and you can see the large amount African mix amongst the local population. The same with many modern western European/Latin American nations. Get your facts correct instead of coughing out racist garbage here.

                  Why are you denying your Australoid heritage? Look at the Andamanese in South India. They look exactly like the Australian Aboriginals. Tamils also look very similar to the Andamanese. So it is not just Tamils who are descended from the Aboriginals, but entire populations in South India. The earliest people who invaded India (Greeks/Moghuls, Aryans etc.) all came through the North (Khyber Pass). That is why North Indians look so different, they have much more of a mixed lineage. Similarly, Sinhalese are descended from this mixed lineage, that is why modern genetic studies show only a 42% genetic affinity to Tamils. Originally the figure was much less, but increased after mixture with South Indian populations. It is remarkable that Mahavamsa corroborates modern genetic analysis so well.

        Actually, the Government of Sri Lanka resorts to a type of punishment that is far worse than capital punishment. It incarcerates persons suspected of terrorism for indefinite periods (more than 10 years) without charging them for any crimes or if they are charged, putting their cases on hold permanently on some pretext so that no progress is made.

        This country holds the all time record for obstructing the normal process of litigation so that innumerable cases are suspended midway so that justice is never meted out, with most of the victims being from the minority community.

    At a public meeting of Tamils and Muslims, held yesterday ( Saturday ) at Manmunai North Batticaloa, Tamils living in villages adjoining to muslim villages ( called border villages ) have expressed fear from hardcore Muslims who crosses the border and threatens them during nights. Tamils from Manchanthoduvai have said that they complained to the police about the threats by people crossing from Kaththankudi but Police said they are unable to help them. Alternatively Tamils have asked permission to form HomeGuards with Tamil youths to protect them during nights. Let the readers tell what to do in this situation.

    This man seems to have had serious psychological problems. It is a good thing that most Muslims rejected him, recognized him as a trouble maker, and some even complained to the police. He is evil, and those who associated, and agreed, with him should also be arrested and questioned. This is a cancer that must be cauterized and cut off, Sri Lanka cannot afford to have these dangerous criminals go around spreading hate and committing terrorist activities.
    Our law enforcement has been admirable, and they have done a good job arresting these criminals, and raiding their homes.

    The Muslims have to do many other things. The way they earned their monies is a problem. How do they become filthy rich. They are the culprits engaging in trading with waste tea. We observe that it is the Muslims who get caught 99 out of 100 times. The are the worst dealing in narcotics. How many are in jail. They got even TM Jayaratne to their narcotics web. Of course he became the benefactor of several billion rupees. In Colombo they are the majority. People like Fouzi, for years safeguarded them when caught for nefarious activities. Every culvert is converted to a Petti Kade overnight. Fouzi was the most culpable culprit in such matters when he was the Mayor. Those who got caught in the Dematagoda house had several billions in gems, foreign currency and Rupees. .

    Of course they have to be ashamed owing to their most extremist islamic beliefs and following. These beliefs and unquestioning or un-verifying obsession led to this extreme form of islam world wide. My honest belief is that it is virtually impossible to get them out of these beliefs as they are well and truly ingrained in their brains and even kids are from day one are loaded with these beliefs. They are told that they cannot think or question or verify about Allah and Islam. They have to just follow and that is all. Quoran says questioning God and they will be roasted in fire in hell. I am appalled that there are even young, educated, otherwise enlightened Muslims, when it comes to Islam they go just blank. Nothing beyond. One day I was talking to a young Muslim from abroad and after a while he asked me to convert to Islam as that is the only way to ultimate liberation. So can anyone change this mind set? And killing in the name of religion is a most sacred duty for a Muslim. So how to save the world, leave aside SL, from these scourge? As a small country that is already riddled by religious and racial hatred and this becomes an ideal place for such Islamic extremism and invasion. And that is exactly what had happened. Otherwise who will declare that SL ought to be ruled by Islam? How we are going to change the Islamic attitudes, beliefs, religious obsessions, attire, violence etc is a very big challenge. Every mosque, have to be monitored. Islamic schools have to be closed down. Ghettos broken up. Strict visa condition for any Muslims from abroad. Burgha have to be banned not only under emergency but even otherwise. Even sane Muslims are under threat from these fanatics.

    “At a time when our motherland, Sri Lanka, is grieving at the tragic deaths of our Christian brothers and sisters, and also other innocents from this country and abroad, who have fallen victims to the atrocities of terrorists in certain parts of this country, we release this communiqué with a heavy heart, while expressing our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased and those suffering at hospitals.”
    “Muslims in Sri Lanka have always been peace-loving and proved to be loyal to this country. Even at times when our people were massacred in hundreds while worshipping in mosques, our properties were destroyed and evacuated from our homes we maintained peace and tranquility. We did not turn against our motherland or people in this beautiful country. We never resorted to violence. The Muslims in the East, particularly in Kattankudy were supportive to this country at hard times and moreover, we were very quick in re-establishing the rapport with you brothers and sisters forgetting all what happened during the war time and thereafter.”
    “We could feel the trauma you all have been undergoing and once again”.

    We wrote here Allah doesn’t bring the man clothed. Man come and goes naked. This is an indication if man permanently attached to shame then this world is not for him. When the god’s set up, will is being like where is this shame is coming from?
    “We feel ashamed. A feeling of guilt is frustrating us when we hear that this act of terrorism has been reportedly committed by a very few radical elements suspected to be from Kattankudy “ What a gimmick!
    This shame could not be invoked unless the catalyst LTTE is dragged into that Yagna fire. The author is not telling LTTE vacated Muslims from North. He just wants Sinhala Buddhists to understand that way only.

    Even at times when our people were massacred in hundreds while worshipping in mosques, our properties were destroyed and evacuated from our homes we maintained peace and tranquility.
    Let’s interpreter that sentence in authors’ favor. He has not told it was done by Tamils. So we narrowly interpret that it was LTTE who vacated them from North, not Tamils. Though he is reserving the Muslim right to retaliate, but Muslims let it go magnanimously. He says he needs not to depend on government for Law & Order, but they can retaliate against Tamils for LTTE’s action. Here he is negotiating a private contract with Sinhala Buddhist.
    Let look at how carefully the sentence is crafted. At the start, Ashraf and Muslim youth were with Amirthalingam and Pirapaharan. Muslim youths and upcountry youths fought in the liberation war. But Aanduwa, who operated on Don Stephen Theorems- Divide and rule, very quickly divided Northern Muslims from Tamils. Leader Pirapaharan wanted to be practical. While fighting with Sinhala Aanduwa, he wanted Muslim brothers with him. Though these guys now calling him terrorist, Unlike Chandrika bombed Navali Church or now these Muslim rebels bombing Tamils churches, LTTE did not bomb one Mosque or they did not dismantle one mosque, whether in North or East. Neither Sinhalese nor Muslim were ever attacked by LTTE just for working to government, though this was the antagonism for sibling fights between the rival liberation groups. But once, LTTE vacated Northern Muslims. It happened in 1995. None of the mosques or Muslim schools was touched in North. Not one property was looted. One life, even one Muslims’ pet was killed. Muslims were not cordoned and bombed. But 24 hours’ notice was given to vacate. It was not retaliation for an action of Muslims.

    Anybody reading the above sentence will understand now why the incidences are purposefully transposed in order in this sentence: Even at times when our people were massacred in hundreds while worshipping in mosques, our properties were destroyed and evacuated from our homes we maintained peace and tranquility. An innocent reader will be thinking Muslim were humiliated from 1948 by Tamils. Unlike this man arguing, Tamils did not reserved the rights to reattack on 1956,1958,1961,1971, 1977 though, LTTE a rebel movement, which had its birth on replying to the 1983 Pogrom, had a habit of, time of eye to eye type attacks. But Sinhala Buddhists are still holding their right to reattack Muslim for their 1915 attack. It was in 1915 Muslims sowed seed of attacking communities on their own, each other by, attacking the Sinhala Perahera.
    The person, who drafted this, is not claiming any right reserved for them to retaliate to Aluthgama, Amparai, Mawanella or Digana attacks. But don’t be confused to think that if this letter is written to Tamils Christians whose lives were taken and whose properties were bombed on Easter. This is specifically written to Sinhala Buddhist to respect the Contract that Asath Sally made in prison with Gnanam, by which, Sinhala Buddhists would not retaliate if the Muslim extremists attack Tamils’ properties.
    The person is talking about LTTE vacating Muslims in North. But, we have said already, how orderly actions it was in a very fearful & tensed war situation, while LTTE was planning to attack Rapist Army military posts. But none of the Muslims have condemned the world worst massacre took place in Saithamarutu by the war criminal army. There are more than enough evidences to show how Appe Aanduwa used Muslims ISIS mercenaries to attack Tamil Churches.

    At the last minute, Aanduwa had settled the Zahren Family in a resettlement Aanduwa created for Tsunami victims. There are many questions why Aanduwa attempted to rent a house built to flood refugees.

    But the neighborhood was not comfortable by this arrangement. It appears they went to the Grama Sevaka to have negotiated with Aanduwa to resettle somewhere else, instead of police to have them arrested. It was too late for Aanduwa to take care of the family. Leave not attended the family in the middle of the village was very dangerous because Aanduwa participation with ISIS would leak to neighborhood. They had only one way. They went there; had the village emptied in the night without a shelter prepared; bombed the family’s home. Shot any members it can see. The let them suffer like that hoping them all succumb to wounds before the Morning. But the wife and the Child of the chief were hiding in some safer place. So the wounds they acquired were not large enough to bleed and die before the morning. Now Aanduwa has got a Muslim Tamilini. Either she has to die by cancer in the prison or have to marry a Muslim EPDP (Home Guard or an Aanduwa politician like Asath Sally) or both when she finish writing her book on ISIS. Then they used the child to create Hurray to Rapist Army and hide its naked murder of that family.

    Dr Ranil did everything to support the Muslim politicians who in fact became UNP to roll Rajapaksa.
    Sira wanted to look after the Muslims too, just like Ranil did ,to keep their Power Bases .
    While Mangala, Sagala, Rajitha & Co were doing Sanhidiyawa ( Reconcilitaion) on Sinhala Buddhists .Including the promotion of same sex marriages.

    And the UNP Minsters were felicitating Ibrahims in Colombo for their Bussiness Acumen and achievements.
    And sold them even Car Permits to buy top of the range BMWs…
    And Sira was appointing non UNP Muslims to Governor Gigs left , Right and Center..

    Sinhala Buddhists thankfully exercised Sanhidiyaa perhaps to the disappointment of a few in the Yahapalanaya .

      Innocent Muslims of Kattankudi ! That area was a hotbed of Wahhabi Islamic extremism. The Mosque was the headquarters and arms depot for the Muslim home guards in the east , from where they used to plot the killing , rape, looting and ethnic cleansing of neighbouring Hindu Tamil villages. Tamil Hindus were all ethically cleansed from the Kattankudi area at the behest of the local Muslim Mullahs , who demanded this act publicly from the mosque loudspeakers and the Muslim public complied with the help of the Sinhalese police. Innocent indeed, Innocent now and innocent then. For your information , the attack on the Kattankudi mosque had nothing to do with Pirapakaran , it was planned and executed by the then LTTE leader Karuna, as a revenge act against what was happening the Tamil civilians by the Muslim home guards who ironically were then armed by the STF. He also knew the Wahhabi extremist Kattankudi Mosque was the headquarters of these evil Muslim home guards. Karuna’s sister is married to a Muslim and he is now the daring of the Sinhalese and Muslims. Get your facts correct. They always claim innocence, after committing all sorts of atrocities on the Tamils who gave them refuge in the east and north, even now. The Sri Lankan government for propaganda purposes made a big issue of this but kept quiet regarding the reason why this Mosque was attacked or about the atrocities that the Muslim home guards and the illegal Sinhalese settlers committed on the Tamil civilian population. If the LTTE retaliated against these Thugs and criminals , they were falsely portrayed to the world as innocent civilians..

    Can I kindly urge a stronger moderation by the Colombo Telegraph of comments being posted in response to articles such as this. While I appreciate and fully endorse the right to freedom of speech, I see that many of these comments verge on racial and ethnic hatred. At such a critical juncture in the Country’s history, these inflammatory words and exchanges do nothing to further constructive dialogue and simply embed outdated prejudices, when what is needed is for the healing of wounds, old and new. I strongly implore moderators of these comments to keep in mind the needs of the hour and take active steps to ensure that the free media is not used as a tool to fan further hatred under the guise of freedom of speech.

    The statement is fear of expression on SL-Muslim connection with ISIS.
    The NTJ leader and mastermind of the ISIS in Sri Lanka had been functioning based on Kathankudi many years but this so-called CSOs never addressed this and condemn this publicly.

    Kanthnkudi is like a small Islamic country within Sri Lanka many years and which was very far away from eye sight of SL Intelligence. The extreme influence of Muslim politicians also is one of the main reasons, particularly in this government for this situation.

    When any crimes took place, the Sri Lankan authorities always turned to former LTTE cadres. This was the usual one in Sri Lanka for more than three decades. The Vavunathivu incident is a good example.
    Now the Sri Lankan security forces have realized the truth. The government has learned that there is a fountain of danger terror among Muslims in Sri Lanka particularly in Eastern province.
    This has created fears for Muslims who have enjoyed unlimited privileges during the war against the LTTE.
    Even in the face of large numbers of people in favor of the LTTE, there were people in the Tamil community who were opposed the LTTE and criticized them but we couldn’t see a single Muslim person in Sri Lanka, who opposed or criticized the global Islamic terrorism even ISIS killed hundreds of innocent people. Why – because their religion is concerned.

    But today they feared their political and business interests are going to be affected. They are trying to show that they have long been vocal. ISIS targeted innocent Christians in France and Indonesia but there was no protest voice among the Muslims of Sri Lanka. Why because of their religious connection then why now they are crying because of their political and economic interests will be affected. This is the peak of opportunism.

    It is true majority of the Muslims have condemned this heinous attack and stood by the rest of Sri Lankans as true Muslims and Sri Lankans, I have seen many youth who are radicalised who can be turned into Zahrans if necessary indoctrination is given. So there is a problem of Islamist radicalisation which comes up with Muslim tribal areas.

    Kathankuddy Etymology and Growth
    Like Kopilapilavu village near Nandikadal Kathankuddy near Batticaloa hit the Social media news after the April Sunday ISIS Terrorist attack in Sri Lanka
    Kathankuddy is village 3 miles south of Batticaloa on Batticaloa Colombo A4 highway passing Kallady bridge. I visited the village twice in seventies when I was working in Post and Telecom Department as Senior Supdt of Telecom Traffic to provide Tel service to SPO for villages in the Eastern province A.Tamil speaking Muslim trader known to me gave lunch and Kadju. He sold popular Kaathankudi mats Long before British rule area was under Kandyan kingdom One time there was forest and a Tamil hunters family and relations name Kathan lived there ..They were doing hunting, fishing and farming hence it became Kaathankuddi.
    Like Gama ( Kiramam). Kuddi means the place where people live. There are many village names in Eastern province ending with Kudi. Towards the west of-of Kaathankuddi there is the Manmunai bridge that links Eluvan Karai (East) and Paduvan Karai (West). Of Batticaloa lagoon. One time Kathankuddy was a Tamil village and there are Pathini and Ganesh temples in that village. As time went on Muslims called Thumilar came onto Batticaloa fought a battle with Mukuvar(Fishermen). They gradually expanded to villages such as Kaathan Kudi, Kalmunai Akkaraipathu Samanthurai, Pothuvil and did business. They gave loans to poor Tamil villagers at high-interest rate and when the villagers failed to pay back the loan the Muslin Traders acquired their lands. It is how Kattahankudi eastern side became Muslim area, Hence the eastern part Kathankudi became predominately Muslim village. The Muslim in eastern province speak very good Tamil and there are many writers in Tamil. Many youngsters from Kaathankudy got jobs in Middle Eastern countries and the village prospered like the city of Dubai with Date Palm trees plants, tall buildings and many mosques.

      @ Pon Kelendran.

      Correction:

      Both Mukuvar (first immigrant in MATTAKALAPPU ) and THIMILAR (not Thumilar )are both TAMIL HINDUS both have had fight regularly .

      Musulims who visit here for trade often, had guns thus helped Mukuvar to won the battle with Thimilar who after defeat ran away to VERUGAL near Trinco,

      After chasing them Mukuwar soldiers returned and rested in a place today called VANTHARUMOOLAI ( vanthu-ilai-paariya-moolai ) this is how the name came.

      As a gratitude Mukuvar chiefs allowed these Musulim traders to settle in Kattankudy never realized that one day these Musulims engulf the whole area.

      I am sure that these old mosques in Eastern province were built over demolished HINDU TEMPLES.

      Same story happened in Puttalam ( Fight between two Tamil Principality )thus became the first enclave in SL for TAMIL HINDUS to embrace ISULAM.

      But our bruders say that they are Moors connected to Bedouin Arabs .

      Thank you

      No you are incorrect the Thimmalar are another fishing caste , just like the Mukkuva or the Karaiyar. They were not Muslims but Hindus, just like the eastern Mukkuvas. Muslims only arrived much later as refugees . There was a war between the Thimmilar and the Mukkuvar and the Mukkuvar were victorious and chased out the Thimmilar and the area where this victory took place is called Sathurukondan( place where the enemy was killed) in the Batticaloa district. The rest about what you say about crafty money lending Muslim traders cheating poor eastern Tamil peasants and stealing their land may be true .

    @ Leister

    Singapore leaders never suffered with majority mentality like your people this is the reason for their success.

    Late Lee once said to Premadada you can not build a country when the minority are in tears.

    Singapore has given so many to Tamils there. The longest served President was Mr.Nathan a Tamil
    The father of the current President M&s.Halima Yaqoob is a Tamil..so many Tamil ministers including deputy PM.

    SINGAPORE AIRLINES from the beginning was managed by Tamils.
    Result one of the best AIRLINES in the world today look at your airline how many Tamils are there???Pure racism

    Any mentioned above possible in this cursed country ????
    Forget about Singapore prepare to accept a Somalia here.

    You reap what you saw.

    Condolences

    Siva Sankaran Sarma, Tamils are a diaspora of Tamilnadu. That is why you speak Tamil and have all your history in Tamilnadu. Do not try to compare yourselves and compete with the Sinhaelse on this matter, since you have nothing, I repeat NOTHING to even come close to the Sinhalese. Sinhalese are the indigenous population of this island, besides the Vaeddas. Tamils are a recent immigrant community from the Tamil country. You first find a Sinhala country outside this island and then come and bark. If you had any love or respect for this island, you will not insult the Sinhalese people who are the only product of this island besides the Vaeddas who also mind you have with time adopted much of the Sinhalese language as their own language. All your dumb stupid claims and theories about the Sinhalese shows how pathetic and desperate you are. How in the world can the Sinhalese be from Tamilnadu while the Tamils from Srilanka!!? LMAO. All your stupid claims are nothing but hate speech. Also keep in mind that the vast majourity of the Sinhalese will always look at the Muslims with respect and love, since the Muslims have never done anything to hurt the Sinhalese. They do not attack our culture, our language or our history. Its the Tamil fanatics like you who have attacked us and destroyed our island and wanting to break our island in two. You Tamils are an immigrant community, speaking an immigrant language which does not have any history in this island. Tell us the name of even one ancient Tamil literary work written here. The attack on the easter Sunday was not an attack by Sri Lankan Muslims, but the ISIS. So you just leave the Srilankan Muslims alone, you stupid Tamil fanatic.

      ” Tamils are a diaspora of Tamilnadu.”

      So are the Sinhalese.
      Refer to articles on Language Shift, also known as language transfer or language replacement or language assimilation which should explain as to how Tamils of Tamil Nadu change their mother tongue from Tamil to Sinhala.

      Language Shift
      By Nicholas Ostler
      Language shift is a dynamic phenomenon of social change, and is therefore a topic of sociolinguistics. There is no general theory of its causation that is universally accepted.

    Looking at what had happened and happening it is difficult to say that Muslims are peace loving people? May be once the whole world becomes Islamic then there may be peace? But looking at the history of Islamic countries such an assumption too appears baseless. What is happening and had happened in the east is a proof of the so-called peaceful co-existence? They were simply on a rampage during MR’s time and after MY3 took over. They used Muslims to destroy Tamil legitimate struggle and in the meantime they used that opportunity to capture every thing from tamils by violence and power. Tamil villages have vanished and places of worship have vanished. Hisbullah is a good example of peaceful co-existence. Do we really need a Shariya International university in SL? It will attract all the Islamic terror groups into the country and there will be worse disaster. Already things look so bad. Even they have abducted tamils girls, converted them to Islam and used them as terrorists? I dont deny the fact that majority Muslims are lovely and nice people but no one can trust them when it comes to Islam. It is not their fault and they have been brainwashed, hoodwinked and misled by islamic fanatics and also they just cannot ask any questions or even think withing themselves. It has got deep into their psyche. How otherwise one of the killers publicly declare that SL have to be totally Islamised and only Muslims can rule it? Looking at the terrible, intricate network, they were really at it.
    It is difficult for the country to tackle this menace but there is no choice other than ruthless crack down and restrictions on human rights. It is true LTTE too resorted to violence but as a last resort and it was not to rule the whole of SL or to make their religion the only religion in SL.

    What a mess The Sri Lanka Moors have got themselves into.

    Tamils want to.convert them into Tamils because rhey speak Tamil.at home , note:There are Moor families who have been speaking English at home all their life ,like some Sinhalese , burgers don’t call them Burghers , then today majority of Burgers speak Sinhalese at home ,they still.proudly call themselves Burghers , and since the introduction of Sinhala Only in Schools in 70’s there are quite a large number of moors who speak only Sinhala at home and still.consider themselves Moor.
    Tamil.,Sinhalese .Burghers ,Malays and Moors are birth right identities and no more can it be endorsed as ethnicity ,by Nationality we are all Sri. Lankans , until Science can.come up with a 100% guaranteed DNA gene pool process to prove anyone’s exact ethnicity no-one can be sure of their real ethnicity & I doubt to see that in this Era.
