Lukewarm Response To Earlier Attacks On Muslims Has Emboldened Extremists: Muslim UPFA Ministers

Following the attack on the Grandpass mosque on Saturday, the Muslim Ministers in President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Government issued a scathing criticism about the state’s lukewarm response to previous attacks against the Muslim community that had emboldened extremists in the country.

Issuing a joint statement following a meeting at the residence of Senior Minister A.H.M. Fowzie, the Ministers expressed their “unequivocal and unreserved” condemnation of the Masjid in Grandpass.

They said the attack was premeditated and planned.

The Ministers urged President Rajapaksa to take “decisive action to halt the trend of openly espousing religious hatred towards the Muslim community,” and called for an independent inquiry into the attack on the Grandpass mosque during evening prayers.

The statement came hours before a high level meeting at the Ministry of Buddha Sasana and Religious Affairs resulted in a compromise on the contentious mosque issue. The Government decided to revoke the order by the UDA reclaiming the old Molawatte mosque and said a Bo Tree on the premises would be removed in order to allow the mosque premises to expand. The new mosque that was attacked on Saturday would be shut down.

The Ministers in their statement called on the President to instruct law enforcement agencies to apprehend and punish the perpetrators of what they called an “anti-national act.”

“The notion that there are elements in our society who can act with impunity should be totally eradicated from the public perception that has now taken root in our society,” the joint statement said.

“The State has a fundamental duty to ensure that our religious freedom is preserved in this multi-ethnic and multi-religious nation,” the Ministers said.

Minister Fowzie, Ministers Rauf Hakeem, Rishad Bathiyutheen, A.L.M. Athaullah, and Basheer Segu Dawood, and Deputy Minister Faizer Mustapha. Deputy Ministers A.L.M. Athaullah and A.R.M. Abdul Cader did not sign the statement being out of Colombo.

    The Muslim ministers should be blamed for the plight of Muslims in Sri Lanka presently and they don’t have the guts nor principle to stand up to what is happening. They should have resigned their posts immediately instead of giving statements which doesn’t warrant anything to anybody.

    All the Muslim ministers are tainted and whoever has signed this document has no moral value to represent the Muslim community and they can represent the ruling family.
    Read the names of the minsters and not one of them has a clean reputation. One is biggest bribe taker, other is a womanizer, another had taken money to support the ruling party, another one openly claims that Dambulla mosque was not attacked…..we can go on and on on this subject. Its no point blaming the government first, we should blame ourselves for getting this bunch of jokers and crooks elected and then keep listening to their stories time after time.
    Please dear brothers & sisters rise up to the corrupt & immoral politics of the Muslim Ministers and MP’s.

    It is a step taken in the right direction.The Muslim politicians have to map out future actions unless the culprits are arrested.
    Also they should urge the government to punish the police officers who let the attackers get off scot-free.
    Unless the police officers are disciplined more police officers will follow them.

    Rauff Hakeem, Fowzie, Rishad, Mustapha, Cader and others Muslim leaders who are with UPFA are TRAITORS. They sleep with the enemy who is attacking them and sticking on and pulling for the regime. Shameless guys. They have to be kicked out by the younger Muslim generation who should take charge of the future of their community. Why is the Muslim community still tolerating them? Hakkem is the Minister of Justice, but when it comes to the Muslim community, he cannot bring justice to the damages that are being done to the mosques and homes of the Muslims. How can he bring justice to other Sri Lankans. He should resign.

    The time has come to stop pleasing the president (as he is taking these as jokes) and work on legal ground to expose the power behind the communal violence to the world.

    We have long experience starting with Greese Yaka, attack on Dambulla Masjid, attack on fashion bug and now attack on Grandpass Mosque.

    Only way forward is to move toward legal action with all community representatives against organized communal violence and government inaction to control the same.

    Fellow Sri Lankans,

    “Following the attack on the Grandpass mosque on Saturday, the Muslim Ministers in President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Government issued a scathing criticism about the state’s lukewarm response to previous attacks against the Muslim community that had emboldened extremists in the country.”

    Why do you let yourselves be intimidated by

    1. Msara Buddhist Monks and trheit Mara follwersbecause thert wear a yellow robe?

    2. Whu do you want your country to be destroyed by one family so that they can maintain their hegemony?

    3. Wake up?

    How.

    1. Form Neighborhood citizens committees, and citizens militia to protect the area from thugs and criminals like monks and other criminals.

    2.Take the law into your own hands, as the police is not doing their duty.

    3. Identify and make citizens arrests, and make citizens reports.

    3. Expose the criminals.

    How many other non-Muslim countries have so many Muslim ministers? In the East the Saudis fund endless ‘prayer centers’. This is why there are concerns and fears.

      WELL LETS SAY THERE ARE MANY PRAYER CENTRES.

      IN ISLAM,WHEN THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO MUSLIMS AND THE PRAYER TIME COMES,THEY PRAY TOGETHER. THEN IT AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES A PRAYER CENTRE.

      IN AN AREA IF A COUPLE OF MUSLIMS DECIDE TO MEET AND PRAY TOGETHER IN THE HOME OF ONE,IT BECOMES A PRAYER CENTRE. IN ISLAM PRAYING TOGETHER
      IS MORE REWARDING. IN FACT THAT IS WHY MUSLIMS WANT SO MANY SINCE,
      TWO PRAYERS ARE DURING WORKING TIME. SO THEY PRAY IN OFFICES, BUSINESS PLACES SCHOOLS. IS THERE ANYTHING BAD.

      NO ONE TALKS OF THE PROLIFERATION OF GAMBLING CENTRES, HOOCH-JOINTS
      AND “WHORING CENTRES’ NOW WE HEAR OF “MOBILE BROTHELS”
      “MOBILE BARS” AND MAYBE SOON “MOBILE GAMING CENTRES”

      I have a question, and I hope I get an honest answer.

      01. the Kasippu market is bigger than the legal alcohol market in Sri Lanka, yet we are tolerant.

      02. As many as 5 women/children or more are being raped in this country everyday

      03. Multiple murders are common way of settling disputes- Tangalle yesterday

      04. Gambling ( state sponsored lottery /casinos/ bookies) are big businesses

      Don’t you think our country needs to worry about the moral decay of her citizens? Now isn’t the role of religion to ensure that we live a decent life?

      Now I would think the presence of more religious places of worship, be it Pansalas, Kovils , Churches or Mosques would help us grow in spirituality and help us become better citizens.

      On what basis do you object to mosques? Is it because we are a minority or is it because you don’t want this country to prosper?

      Your answer would be very interesting!

      Don’t insult the Muslim women. There were so many Muslim women who took to the roads on the night Grandpass mosque was attacked. They were seated on the road until 2 am despite police declaring a curfew.

      We should not under estimate them. They are more than willing to join their men. Also, point to note that more women are wearing head scarves and abayas in support of their sisters who are in abayas.

    The President of Sri Lanka should give utmost concern to this recent issues with Muslims, it is the responsibility of the MR to stop the BBS and similar groups creating harmony between the majority and monitory like Muslims and Christians.

    One should understand that fighting & winning a war with LTTE is easy comparing to fighting a jihadi war, if the Muslim mosques are destroyed Sri Lanka will have to face International radical Islamic group who fight to die unlike LTTE was fighting for a land.

    MR should carefully think and act on this very serious issue! Otherwise Sri Lanka will be another Pakistan & Afghanistan.

    If we have to address the issue of violence against Muslims, then the first thing we should do is kick out Hakeem, Rishard, Basheer, Hisbullah & co from our neighbourhoods. We should unite and counter these time serving useless representatives and then look for other avenues to counter the problems thrown at us. I think we will succeed if we have a new bunch of MP’s than the present ones and then we can take our issues to the international stage just like the Tamils have done. Sampanthan & Sumanthiran are better voices to address issues related to Muslim community than our present bunch of jokers who are doing lip services and enjoying all the perks given to them. Look at even the UNP Colombo district Mayor,same joker as others. Hence no use with the current lot to address our problems.

    All of them are ‘time-servers’ not worthy of being called Muslim Ministers. They are, like the rest of the cabinet in it for their own benefit. Its only at election time they remember they are Muslims, or when it is time to go to Islamic countries with the begging bowl!

    They have not, and will not do anything for the Muslims of Sri Lanka. Rather, they have prevented the Muslims from realizing how vulnerable they are from religious extremists bred by the Rajapakses.

    I wonder if this statement was better addressed as a “Joint Statement of the Ministers of the Government of Sri Lanka of the Muslim Faith”.

    Personally, i am loathed to describe a Sri Lankan as a Tamil MP, Buddhist Minister, Muslim Minister or Christian Minister etc.

    Regrettably, i find this “label” is all too common amongst the Tamil and Sinhala diasporas.

    Now you call it the Noble Quran – once more copying the Christian description of the Holy Bible. Once again, the usual coterie of Islamic lunatics are screaming “Islam is the most peaceful and compassionate religion of love and brotherhood. Have you ever wondered why Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism waste their time 24×7 giving Certificates to their own religion. It is not necessary – because they are religions based on Love, Tolernace to other religions and views and also Brotherhood. Islam is not. It is a religion of blood, the sword, revenge and curses. Even today the stone age feature of killing by stoning is given honour in the annual pilgrimage in Makkah.

    Who are these idiots trying to fool? From the beginning till today Islam continues to be a religion of hatred, revenge and blood – the only so-called religion to honour these beastly qualities. Look at the current record of this religion and their “peaceful believers”

    – On Eid night’s prayers last week 11 Muslims in Quetta, Pakistan were slaughtered and 27 others bad mangled beyond help by a suice Muslim suicide bomber simply because those whom he killed belonged to another
    section of believes – in Islam itself.

    – On the same day 40 were killed instantly many hundreds maimed for life in Mosques, markets and Cafes in Baghdad. In the month of Eid alone over 700 Muslims were killed in Iraq by other Muslims although the killer/s personally had no quarrel with those that died and wounded. Some “religion of peace and love”

    These are only to examples. Not a day passes without Islamics harming those of other faiths – even theirs – every day in almost every Muslim country in the world. How can such a religion be considered peaceful?

    Now many Muslim readers in these pages call their Allah to curse Sri Lanka and harm the Sinhalese. No God worth his name will answer a call to cause damage to others. Instead what Muslims must ask their Allah is to change their own ways not to wish ill and conspire to harm the other religions within the societies they live in. That will be more like a peaceful religion.

      Dear ADJP Rajagiriya-
      1st – All what you explained is done by JEWS & Bad Christians ( connected to Born Again Groups) in Pakistan and Bagdhad.
      2- Have you been to Iraq, Afgabistan, Israel? I have been to all Middle East countries, so I know how they are operating.
      3 – Islam is not againts to Chritianity, is the Jews against Jesus, not Mohammed Against Jesus.
      4- The Most Dangerous Philosophy is Athism ( Budhism ) n its connetced to Illuminati of Israel, America and Europe. Even USA christians are facing problem of this Born Again, Gospel Church and New Order or what ever, Their symbol is Israel Flag and Pyramid.
      5- go to any of the Born again offices, all are carrying Isreal flag and Pyramids on their table top not knowing why they kept, but if you ask them, they say, We must save Israel to receive Jesus, but Jesus already come and gone they dont believe, but Muslims belive that and also of the coming again.
      6- Born again is waiting for Anti Christ not Jesus Christ…

      So ADJP, you are an Ass Hole Born again, trying to connect unwanted subject to this without even know what you are following and licking the Israel flag for money thinking you are waiting for the Christ to arrive. :)

      go to AOG, Four Square Gospel, Penthacostal Mission, so on and on, you see lot after Israel for their purpose and money. I was laughing when i was in Dead Sea in the boat an Israel guy asked me “what are they praying and what is that Language?” while AOG guy is claiming that they are praying in Hebrew .. ahahaha. Stupid cult that sparking in between Muslims, Christians and Buddhist.

        “So ADJP, you are an [Edited out] Born again” says Rod Atkinson in the
        parentage he was brought up in. But, Rodda, remember Born Again Christians are peaceful people. Their sin is they also seek to convert – within the law. They are not violent. They do not plan and kill their own, spread violence, call for blood. Their numbers are increasing in the world.

        Next time you wish to enter into debate please use polite language. Remember many ladies and young girls took, in increasing numbers, read these pages. Not just ignorant cads like you filling the pages with nonsense.

      ADJ Perera mahattaya,

      In your hatred of Islam you keep drivelling about issues that are irrelevant to Sri Lanka. The pressing issues we are discussing is here. In our own Sri Lanka. No point diverting attention to other nations. There are more issues involved in the killings in those countries other than religious hatred alone. Research a little bit then you perhaps will understand.

      Anyway please focus attention to the horrid goings on in Sri Lanka. Here the ‘Thugdhamma’ practicing monks are causing havoc and creating divisions among people who have been living as friends for centuries. If you have nothing worthwhile to say about the situation in Sri Lanka please don’t say it.

      If you want to contribute towards peace and harmony in Sri Lanka please tell your ‘Thugdhamma’ practicing BBS monks that there are other civilized ways available to change laws. Through the ballot box. Win elections from MARA’s ‘thugocracy’ and pass laws against slaughter of animals and prohibiting the ‘burka’ and so on.

      ADJP, Rajagiriya

      This is what you say in support of Muslims being violent and I quote “…………These are only to examples”.

      And the two examples you give are from Two Muslim majority countries- Pakistan and Iraq.

      The conclusion you draw from these two examples and I quote you again “

      Not a day passes without Islamics harming those of other faiths – even theirs – every day in almost every Muslim country in the world. How can such a religion be considered peaceful?”
      Why are Muslims being burnt alive in Myanmar? Why did Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam fight each other for nearly 30 years killing Millions of fellow Buddhists?

      Weren’t the context same; the former, one faith (Buddhists) murdering people of another faith (Muslims) in the name of their own faith (Budhism)? and in the latter people of the same faith (Buddhists) killing each other? Before going further, should we not look at our own shores, the Dhamma Deepa, where over 275,000 people have been died violently since independence (71, 77, 81, 83 89, 09)

      Let me ask you the same question.- How is it that a religion, Buddhism ( don’t try to tell us it is a philosophy, it’s not in its current form) based on Ahimsa be so violent?

      Should we draw the same conclusions about the Sinhalese and Buddhists? that they are a violent race and aren’t a peaceful race?

      Now which idiot will believe the Sinhalese are peaceful? Do enlighten us!

        Let me reply to “I am no Cad” In the declaration of many fundamental Islamic leaders the 2nd Crusade has started. So you see senseless violence in London and other places in Britain, France, the USA and other places where Muslims live free, study and comfortable lives. These lunatics want to destroy them because of their madness “this is the time for the world to be turned into an Islamic world”?? This is why European experts studying the present behaviour of young Muslims say “Islam is not a religion anymore. It is a highly disturbed mental condition”

        You criticise me for my strong stand for my people. Do you accept
        Colombo was the venue several times for the Shia Muslims of the world to meet here – in peace and conduct their religious customs.
        Why Colombo – which you falsely say is anti_Muslim. It is because in most countries where Muslim lives they will be slaughtered if they meet in the numbers they came here – merely because they believe in another leader who believes in Prophet Muhammad.
        So how tolerant and peaceful is your religion, my man.

        Now the Sinhalese have woken up. They know what your Madrassas are
        aimed at. Don’t blame me and others who speak for the Sinhalese. We are only sharing the knowledge we gather. Close your madrasas and ask your violent Friday preachers to advise Muslims here hereafter to be peaceful. You have nowhere to run. India will not accept you because you sold them to the Pakistanis. The USA will not give Visas because, to please the extremists in the Govt – you organised unruly demos against the US Embassy in Colpetty. You are now reapting what you sowed and even Allah is not coming to your resue maybe because of your foolishness.

      ADAP,

      What are Facts and what are Myths? Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism are religions of love, and Islam is a religion of hate? What are the historical facts?

      Despite Joshua’s claims, the Earth Still goes around the Sun- Fact.

      1. Historical Jesus. Jesus was trying to Liberate the promised land to Jews, Palestine, from the Roman occupation, around 33 CE. He was a Jew, born at Nazareth, and crucified, as a bandit, a terrorist for being against the Roman occupation. He was a liberation fighter.

      Reza Aslan “Zealot – The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth”

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fLoE3Sup_I

      2. The antisemitism was a Christian invention by the Christians. This culminated with Adolf Hitler, the Catholic, who was responsible for the murder and killing of over 50 million people including 6 million Jews.

      3. World Wart II, Japan Buddhist country was responsible for the killing of many millions.

      Granted, one cannot paint all based on the actions of the extremists and their interpretations.

      Is Osama Bin Laden a Muslim? Yes?No? He is a Wahhabi extremist. An agent of the Devil, if you believe in the Devil, Satan.

      Is Hitler a Christian? Yes?No? He is a Racist Extremist. An agent of the Devil, if you believe in the Devil, Satan.

    Right thinking Muslims should be ashamed of their leaders who are still with the Government only for selfish reasons.I don’t think these guys care a damn about whether their Mosques are invaded and destroyed or whether their religion and way of life is insulted by Buddhist religious fanatics so long as they enjoy the the perks of office that the government bestows on them. You guys who signed that petition are a bunch of frauds the government of MR and Gota will simply throw it in the dustbin. You deserve what you are getting,for being selfish unprincipled Arse lickers of the regime. Our sympathies go to the majority of decent Muslim voters that elected these jokers.

    Some Muslims in Sri Lanka are in a state of weakness as they have put their complete trust in their elected leaders rather than their Creator. Its a known fact that the Muslim leaders ‘wings’ are clipped and they do not carry any clout within the organisation they are part of. So stop blaming and slandering them rather take ownership of our lives in accordance with the Noble Quran and the authentic sunnah of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and strive to upgrade our knowledge, experience and skills to be productive members to our family, community and country.

    Say: Cry unto those (saints and angels) whom ye assume (to be gods) beside Him, yet they have no power to rid you of misfortune nor to change. (The Noble Quran 17:56)

    Lukewarm Response To Earlier Attacks On Muslims Has Emboldened Extremists: Muslim UPFA Ministers

    It is exactly like the Silence of buddhists made way to trapis Islamic expansion by building mosques every where and by getting marrying with sinhala women.

    Where are the Sinhala politicians to counter act these things ?

    Are they busy stealing from the public ?

      If Muslims have built their Mosques or married Sinhala women illegally that is a matter to be dealt by law. Like there are many instances of Buddhist Vihares springing-up wherever a Boa plants, even in the middle of a road, there are numerous instances of Sinhala Buddhists, even Monks resorting to illegal marriage and raping their own women even within the presincts of temples. The violent attacks on the legally constructed Mosques and other hate campaigns against the Muslims are cirminal offences which need to be dealt by law.

    When you continue to remain as members of a government that takes no real action to ensure true law and order you yourselves are endorsing the behaviour. Issuing a statement just helps you feel better about yourself and tell your constituents that you are “doing something about it.” Nobody is fooled by that. We know that you will never give up your ministerial perks. You should resign and hold the government accountable for all the atrocities it allows in Sri Lanka.

    Petition to UN,good idea.But as a Muslim living among Sinhalese and doing good business buying their milk and processing them, I think, a caveat from Minister Fowsie stressing following points uld also help in giving a correct picture:
    1 Mr.Fowsie was formerly Mayor of Colombo.
    2.He supported settlement of Muslims in state land on Bauddhaloka Mawatha, Colombo 7, adjoining Buddhist Womens’ Association/ National Buddhist Congress.
    This was an area of 100% Sinhalese. it was a even a confrontation against buddhits.
    3.The land was filled by Land Reclamation Board in the years 1950 and was complete by 1951.
    4. A Muslim carter who supplied cowdung to Colombo house gardens used to park his cart at night against the B.W A wall.An exclusive Muslim shantie settlement was set up by the beginning of 1980 after the Govt offered the land to the Russian govt.
    5.Forged deeds were prepared by notorious Notaries Public. They are a long standing institution in the Eastern Province. One Tawfeek even proved to the supreme Court his entitlement with such a False Deed. The day he won the case, he was killed by a rival.
    6.At election time, Fowsie’s cut outs placed on Bauddhaloka mawatha were protected by the shantie mafia.
    7. by early 1980s a Prayer house was built but a board on the road indiacred it was a “Jumma Mosque.
    8.Later, brick buildings were raised against the boundary wall of the BWA building and shanties were replaced by permanent buildings.
    9. a near 40 feet wide road way was created and and it was named Asharoff Road.
    10. This is how legitimacy is created.
