Mahinda Picking Muslims Individually While Gota Helping BBS

President Mahinda Rajapaksa during his tour of Kataragama visited the mosque situated in the Kataragama Sacred City on April 15. Having been welcomed by the Moulavi of the mosque, the President participated in religious observations and received his blessings. Uva Chief Minister Shasheendra Rajapaksa, Indigenous Medicine Minister Salinda Dissanayake and Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa accompanied the President during his visit.

This happens in a time the President’s all powerful defense secretary brother is openly supporting the Buddhist extremist Bodu Bala Sena (BBS).

The BBS succeeded in forcing Muslims to stop issue of Halal certificates for the benefit of devout Islam followers. Halal protest was against charging money from all consumers for a certification which was only  for a section of the society.

Can anybody protest any such certificate issued free of charge displayed on products for the benefit of Muslims? One can refrain from buying such products based on personal dislike to it and to Muslims. But no one has ethical or moral right to protest it.

But, see what is happening now. I found this banner and a link to a related blog post in Facebook where hate campaigns freely go on with no control of BBS or whatever. One may perceive this as the online stuff is spilling to society but what actually happens is the reversal.

How can we understand what the government  is doing in ethnic front, in this backdrop? The government is generalizing hatred against Muslims and Islam while individually picking up Muslim leaders before media cameras. Personal relationships of the Muslim leaders with the President prevents them leading the masses against the injustices caused against them.

This approach not only marginalizes Muslims in Lankan society but also liquidates their protests and weakens their efforts to stand as equal citizens. This further appeases the Muslim countries that may worry about the fate of the Muslims in the country. Remember, the government also summoned the Colombo diplomats of the Muslim countries with the hope of continuing their support in the following day the above photograph was taken.

Muslims should be very careful about this racist approach of the government.

    The Muslim political leaders are the pits – from Ferial to Rauf Hakim – they greedy and self-serving the UNPRINCIPLED, cutting personal deal for hand outs from Rajapassa instead of joining with the Tamils and Christians to fight on a common platform against the Rajapaksa military dictatorship whose project is to DIVIDE, DISTRACT and RULE Lanka.

      The political leaders of all communities in Lanka stink! Take Rajapassa and his cabinet of thieves, thugs and morons, Dictator Ranil Wickramasinghe, Rauf Hakeem the Unprincipled ethnic entrepreneur, the Geriatric dead leftists and the Geriatric Sampanthan, and the fool Premachandran of the TNA.

      Sri Lankan voters – Muslims, Tamils, Sinhalas, need to get educated and start voting for young people with clean hands!

      Well said, Rauff Hakeem is the head of it. Mr. Ashroff formed SLMC to address the muslim grievances but Hakeem who has taken over the leadership is trying hard to protect the party while preserving the perks. Hakeem, ‘you are running with the hare and hunting with the hounds’, you cannot do this forever, you are exposed. If you have a least bit of principle left do not go back to the muslim asking for their votes, I as a muslim will never vote for you and I have never voted ‘muslim congress’. I will vote for some non-muslims who had voiced their opposition while you guys were in deep sleep hugging to your post and perks. Shame on you. Muslims wake up do not get betrayed by these scoundrels.

    Muslims appreciate the efforts of our brotherly Sinhalese and Tamils in voicing there concerns. Do to their voices there has been a reduction in the incidents and toning down of rhetoric. However the harm done to the muslim community, the reputation of the country and to the Buddhist religon is immense.

    It is surprising that a handful of individuals have been permitted and tolerated to spew out such hate and rubbish. Govt could have easily taken action to apprehend these hatemongers at the very begining. If they had locked up a few at the begining all these problems could have been avoided.

    No doubt this is due to the negative influence of GR who has now earned the reputation to be a religous extremist. Having such bias against minorities is inimical with the sensitive position of Secretary of Defense. High time he is shown the door and sent back to Texas.

      “Muslims appreciate the efforts of our brotherly Sinhalese and Tamils in voicing there concerns.”

      Don’t trust the Tamils, Muslims or the Sinhalese. They are form the axis of evil.

      They think alike, speak alike and act alike.

    Rauff Hakim is a traitor. I saw one of the pictures taken during a recent funeral of the mother of a leading Muslim politician. To my surprise Rauff did not even wear the traditional cap worn by the Muslims, especially in a solemn occasion as this. It shows he does not care for the religious practices of his own religion and how can such a person be the representative of the Muslims. He is like Thondaman who is a traitor as he does not do anything to bring up the standard of living of the estate Tamils. He is interested in supporting the government like his grandfather, making money and parking it in India. Most of the time he is drunk and does not do any work. It is sad that even today we have politicians such as Rauff Hakim and Thondaman who are dishonest to such an extent.

    The Muslims will end up like the Up Country Tamil Leadership and their
    political clout – gone with the winds. All due to the greediness of
    their political leaders and unprincipled in their actions vis-a-vis
    their communities.

    The Rajapakses know how to deal with Muslim Countries. They have a
    different taste for the Muslim voters and their local high-ups,
    including so-called Muslim Ministers!

    See the placard alone about – Halal they one can get it easily those BBS dimwits are just idiots – they should check it every where before going to attack lankens in that way. We the many buddhists would not see Halal food a threat. But making customers aware of that is imperative. The issue related to this in SL is to draw the attention towards BBS. BBs is not a representative body for entire buddhists in sl. I know over 80% of lanken buddhist would not support BBS looking at the manner that they violated avihinsa lately seen in the screens.

    While BBS IS SHARPENING its weapons against minorities of the country and specially against Muslims at the moment, MR getting the Diplomats to show that he is for harmony dragging Hakeem and another Muslim minister to endorse his words before Arab world. In the backyard MR and his JHU and GR is providing all the support for BBS HIT AND RUN DRUNKERDS DRIVER CHEVARADARI’S BALU Sena to do the damage. Police is made to play a numb role. These leaders must be thinking Muslims and Arab world are a set of hey eating cattle.

    The muslim community is facing the wrath of allah for electing the wrong leaders to lead the nation and the wrong leaders to lead its community.like you have said trying to appease a handful of ignorant muslims the political elite do vist the Mosques and other shrines of supposed saints in order to seek blessings. let me retariate that no muslim moulavi of whatever standing or supposed sect has the power to impart blessing on a personal note. Blessings to Muslims or any other religious individual can only come from ALLAH who is supreme. Whether we like it or not, we are all his subjects. It is he who created us and it is to he whom we shall return to answer our deeds.Sentiments of religion must be respected,it is the ignorant that will bleed if traveresed upon.God is merciful at all times to all mankind.

    The past few months of tension, bigotry, and attacks against innocent Muslims, have made the majority in the country realize that there are no leaders stepping up and either preventing, or curbing, any violence, be it an attack on a Mosque, private homes, or a shop. The Rajapaksa Brothers and Family Unlimited, were pointedly silent and inactive, the Muslim politicians selfishly looking after their own interests, did not speak out or condemn the crimes against their people, it only took a Tamil politician to stand up for Muslims in Parliament.

    A sad state of affairs, when you do not have leaders who usually beg for your vote, missing in action, while hate and bigotry terrorized the minority. Next time thugs and mobs take to the street, who has the faith that we will be taken care of?

    My Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters, Please kick the hell out of Azwer, Fowzie, Hakeem, Rishad Badurdeen, Alavi Mowlana, Nisar Mustafa, Cader, Athaullah, Hisbullah, Zuhair etc. When the Gota’s Balu Sena taking the hell out of the Muslims, these maroons and despicable people went to bed with the Rajapaksas and licking their boots for their positions and pecks. Allah curse should fall on them and Rajapaksas for bring so much misery to the us.

    These lots are dirty, filthy, mean, corrupt and power hungry. They came to power using us and they let us down badly and royally in the need of the our hour.

    Please Dear Muslims do not let these dirty maroons come any where near to you and tell them to sleep with Rajapasksa for ever and for good.

    THE WHOLE BUNCH OF MUSLIM POLITICIANS ARE A SET OF POLITICAL PROSTITUTES
    WHO WILL SLEEP AND DO WHATEVER THEY WANT WITH THE ONE WHO PAYS THE MOST.
    THIS ROT STARTED WITH ASHRAF WHO FORMED THE SLMC TO BECOME THE UNCROWNED KING OF MUSLIMS. WELL HE LANDED ON TOP OF A MOUNTAIN IN ARANAYAKE WITH THE HELP OF PREME OR PRABHA.

    IF THESE MUSLIM POLITICIANS ARE MUSLIMS AS THEY CLAIM, LET THEM WAIT UNTIL THE WRATH OF ALLAH DESCENDS ON THEM, FOR THEIR HYPOCRISY.
    FOR ALL THE HARASSMENT AND HUMILIATION MUSLIMS UNDERWENT, THEY SHOULD HAVE GOT OUT OF THE GOVERNMENT BY NOW.HOW COULD THEY SIT IN PARLIAMENT WITH CHAMPIKAS, GAMMAN-PILLARS, ATURELIYAS AND OTHER CATERPILLARS.?

    SOON WE WILL SEE NATURAL DISASTERS, AS MOST CLAIM BUT IN FACT IS
    DIVINE DESTRUCTION.

    The Muslims in Sri Lanka need to seriously wake up before they fall victim like the other Muslims in Egypt, Iraq, Libya…

    YOUR ENEMY IS NOT THE BUDDHISTS… do not fall for this trap.

    Without being emotional… please read the Clash of the Civilizations.. to understand that the world is being prepared for a showdown of Christians vs Islam and…. you are falling for the trap …. Sri Lanka needs to remain your haven…

    You must get rid of the Saudi Wahhabis who are taking u down.

    India is a good example – its Muslims are coming together to say NO to Wahhabis’…. Muslims of SL need to do the same without blaming the Buddhists..

    U need to actually thank them for waking up the country to the trap…read a little more into whats happening around before jumpting to blame…thats my humble advice… us tamils are realizing too late how we were fooled… so dont u be fooled too…

    President Mahinda Rajapakse is the biggest cunning fox leader in Sri Lanka’s history.

    He has mastered the art of deception, double play, double face and a master Hambanthota Muppet dancer who has also taught his trade to other Parliament members.

    He may not know that others know about his double agent game plan, but we the clever and educated can see his every action including facial, body language and the way he walks.

    WE ARE BOTH BODY AND MIND READERS, BUT YOUR HAMBANTHOTA COMEDY TRICK DAYS ARE NUMBERED.

      This is a fair analysis for those of us who have met the man personally. A highly skilled actor without a moral or ethical consideration.
