Men Who Imposed Islamic Shariah Law And Lashed Woman For Infidelity Remanded

Four Muslim men from Puttalam were remanded till November 2 by the Puttalam District Judge after they were arrested on charges that they had lashed a woman 100 times.

The men, had imposed the Islamic Shariah law themselves against the woman, on charges that she had committed infidelity.

The men had asked the 25 year old woman to come to a mosque in Nallandaluwa, Puttalam, and had beaten the woman, after accusing her of having an affair with a man. Subsequent to the incident, a complaint was lodged with the police who had then arrested the four men, and had produced them before the district judge. According to the Islamic Shariah Law, married men or women can be stoned to death for having sex outside wedlock, while those who are unmarried face a punishment of lashing.

    Dont generalize the punishment. You have mentioned quite nonchalantly the law and the punishment. It is a repeat of what we read everytime something of this nature occurs. A lie repeated becomes a fact, isn’t it? It is imposed after several conditions are satisfied. The actual conditions are so complex, that it is almost impossible for anybody to be condemned under this law.

    Before passing judgement, the law has to be well understood. Most countries, where the law is applied, particularly Saudi Arabia, have a very arbitrary system. The law is not strictly applied according to Shariah. It is the the verdict of some skewered mind of a misguided lawmaker that is applied. And media further twists the truth, by calling it Shariah law.

      Sri Lanka should have one law for everyone. Different laws for different ethnic, religious, caste etc,etc groups does not bode well for a country like Sri Lanka which is slowly trying to claw back after more than three decades of ethnic strife.

      This brings us to a very pertinent question. What about the Muslim Marriage & Divorce act? At this very moment this act is under scrutiny which is long overdue and many open minded Muslims speak against it in hushed tones.

      This undemocratic and discriminatory act should be abolished forthwith and all Sri Lankans required to marry & divorce under one law.

      There was a time in the not so distant past where this act was made a joke by some marrying under the normal law and when unable to get a divorce from the spouse, especially the wife, do a “SHOW” about converting to Islam and then marrying another with whom in all probability they would have had an extra marital affair which in itself is looked down upon by society and most religions.

      Fortunately this joke was put to a stop by a landmark Judgement delivered by the Sri Lanka Supreme Court a few years back.

      Similarly the Muslim marriage & Divorce act should be abolished especially if Sri Lanka is to stand tall in the league of nations as one that upholds human rights and dignity.

      The Muslim Marriage & Divorce act is discriminatory against women and those who enforce this act are generally unbalanced individuals with warped minds having extreme and fanatical Islamic beliefs. As we have seen in the incident under the above caption.

      The individuals who are appointed to the respective benches to sit and implement the Muslim Marriage and Divorce act have no legal training and knowledge of dispensing justice hence act arbitrarily especially when a woman seeks a divorce from her spouse.

      As one born by chance and not by choice, into the religion of Islam, I have decided that none of my offspring will marry under the Muslim Marriage & Divorce act, but would do so under the common law only.

      One of my offspring has already married under the common law and the others will follow suit, but how many Muslims in Sri Lanka would have the guts to do so, is another question.

      We Sri Lankans need to be more secular and pragmatic in thinking if we are to leave a better country to our offspring tomorrow.

      “Too much of anything is good for nothing” and it goes true when we practice religions too.

      Integration among the different communities is paramount especially in Grade one of our classrooms in schools and a step further in marriages too, if we are to see a better tomorrow

        How did your children marry under the general law. You can only do it, if you declare that you are non muslims. I would like to know more about it

          Malee Karunaratne,

          One was married in the UK. So no issues, but was under pressure from some in the family to have a “Nikah” here in Sri Lanka too, which I opposed.

          Two more to marry, and they would follow suit too if they are to marry here.

          This is new to me too. Never knew that a Muslim had to denounce Islam to marry under common/general law. Are you sure?

          I don’t think so. Could any legal luminary please apprise the readership about this. A very interesting point for discussion.

          If I have a problem, would definitely go to the Supreme Court with a Fundamental Rights petition, which I would definitely win, I think.

            There is absolutely no question of a person having to ‘denounce’ Islam if he / she decides to marry under civil marriage laws rather than under muslim marriage laws. It is only a case of the civil marriage being perceived as being ‘illegal’ by muslims, which will have a bearing on such issues as divorce and inheritance.

            As you may be aware, in the UK, only the civil marriage process is deemed to be legal. A muslim couple who gets ‘married’ only through a nikah ceremony is perceived to be unmarried for all legal purposes.

            However, in Sri Lanka, a muslim couple have the option of getting married under civil law or muslim law. Both types of ceremonies are deemed to be legal in the eyes of the law. But as I mentioned earlier, the type of marriage ceremony will have a bearing on post-marital practices such as divorce and inheritance. For instance, if a Nikah ceremony was performed, then if and when the question arises regarding inheritance, the matter will be settled according to the muslim laws on this issue and not according to any ‘Will’ that may have been written by the deceased. Also, in the case of divorce, the wife is very much at the mercy of the whims and fancies of the husband and the quazis.

              The Blushing Burkini,

              “For instance, if a Nikah ceremony was performed, then if and when the question arises regarding inheritance, the matter will be settled according to the muslim laws on this issue and not according to any ‘Will’ that may have been written by the deceased.”

              This paragraph of your’s opens a can of worms when it comes to INHERITANCE.

              How sure are you of what you are saying?

              Our father and mother married under Muslim law (Nikah) and our mother and father held ownership of family property jointly.

              Our mother predeceased our father without any alienation of her rights to the property and later our father executed a Deed of Gift prior to his death allocating equal shares among his children of which there are four sons and two daughters.

              According to what you are saying this Deed of Gift is Null & Void and the property should devolve to the SIX children under Muslim property inheritance which is SINGLE share for daughters and DOUBLE share for the sons.

              If what you are saying is right LEGALLY under the Muslim Marriage & Divorce act, then Muslims, need not /should not, execute any deeds or Last Wills, but just leave whatever properties they have and expect their offspring to divide it as per Muslim Law.

              Then another interesting question arises, that is if they have a dispute where do they go? Is it to the District Court or the Quazi Court?

              A response from a Muslim legal luminary would be most welcome as this is a very interesting topic.

                “How sure are you of what you are saying ?”

                Quite sure, but as you correctly state “A response from a Muslim legal luminary would be most welcome as this is a very interesting topic”.

                A very close relative recently requested his Lawyer (a non-muslim) to prepare his last Will. The Lawyer asked my relative as to which type of marriage ceremony he had followed when marrying his wife and upon being informed by my relative that he had got married according to the muslim custom (nikah), the Lawyer informed my relative that there was no purpose in preparing a Will since the distribution of his ‘wealth’ will therefore be in accordance with prevailing muslim laws which will take precedence over civil laws.

                The following statement on this subject in a local muslim website also throws more light on this subject “When a believer dies it becomes incumbent on the family members to ensure that the wealth and property left behind are distributed according to Shariah Law prescribed in the Qur’an and Authentic Sunnah. After meeting the initial expenses incurred in giving the deceased an Islamic burial, and, after paying all of his debts and the “mahar” (dowry) that may still be due, to his wife, up to one-third of the remaining may be expended according to the deceased dying wishes or legal will that is left behind, for those who are NOT entitled by Shariah only.
                The remainder must be distributed to all the legal heirs as defined by Qur’an and Authentic Sunnah as detailed hereunder.”

          Dear Puttalam District Judge

          The Sri Lankan Laws do not recognize Sharia Law or Tribal Laws or Apartheid Laws. So, ignore, the Sharia Law,as tghis is the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

          However, here is a case where the Saudi Interpretation of Saria Law punished the husband fir beating up the wife and biting her.

          3 days in jail, 30 lashes for biting wife

          Saudi Gazette report

          RIYADH – The Criminal Court in Riyadh sentenced a Saudi man to three days of imprisonment and 30 lashes for biting his wife. The court gave the woman the option of waiving the punishment, but if she decides otherwise she can witness the punishment being carried out.

          This is the first time a Saudi court has allowed a woman to witness the lashing of her husband.

          An informed legal source said security agencies passed the case to court after the woman complained to the authorities that her husband had bitten her, causing a deep wound in her left shoulder. She presented a medical report issued by a government hospital to support her claim. She claimed the man had also beaten her up.

          A woman prosecutor visited her at the emergency ward of the hospital found her in a bad mental state, the source told Al-Watan daily.

          During the medical checkup doctors found a deep wound in the woman›s left shoulder, causing continuous bleeding. She had lost a considerable amount of blood. There were bruises on her body, which confirmed that she was beaten up.

          Police detained the husband and produced him in court. During the trial, the presiding judge read out the charges against him. The man pleaded guilty and said he committed the crime under extreme mental pressure.

          He added that he had no other explanation to offer and expressed his regret about what he had done to his wife.

          The case was then passed to the reconciliation committee. Despite attending several counseling sessions, the couple did not agree to an amicable settlement. After all options exhausted, the judge gave his verdict sentencing the man to three days› imprisonment and 30 lashes.

          The source said the man was convicted of violating regulations for protecting honor and dignity of individuals. He was given a light sentence as he was not involved in any previous crime.

          Legal consultant Yasser Al-Abdali said the court issued the verdict against the man on the basis of the Shariah law that prohibits physical and verbal abuse of wives.

      “The actual conditions are so complex, that it is almost impossible for anybody to be condemned under this law.” Whatever the complexity it can have, other than it involves in deceiving or abusing, a man and a woman cohabiting is rightful and it can not be punished by any law and to any extent. Here the the mosque have violated the Fundamental Rights of a woman. A religious place where a woman has to recognized and treated with compassion and grace has been used to torture her. Until investigations are over it should be closed and sealed. The place has to investigated if has been an arena for any other crimes. Community volunteers have to be appointed by government to watch similar behaviour places.

      RE: Men Who Imposed Islamic Shariah Law And Lashed Woman For Infidelity Remanded

      “According to the Islamic Shariah Law, married men or women can be stoned to death for having sex outside wedlock, while those who are unmarried face a punishment of lashing.”

      This is Sri Lanka, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. It has a constitution and Laws that Apply to All Citizen’s and non-citizens irrespective of their ethnicity, race, religion and sex.

      Sharia Law, Tribal Laws, such as honor killings etc. or any other Laws that apply elsewhere do NOT apply here. The men have violated the Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka’s Laws and shoukd be tried and and if found guilty, the due process of the law, must be punished accordingly.

      In addition to the crime of hitting the woman, the men shoyld be tried on the charges of conspiracy, to overturn the country’s laws, and thereby cause anarchy and mayhem in the country, and if found guilty of treachery, should be punished.

      Furthermore, the others who were behind the four men, the Ulema, the Mullah and Iman of the Mosque and the Trustees of the Mosque should be tried as co-defendants fir the crimes and conspiracy to overturn the country’s laws.

      Looks like, the Current Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act, MMDA, is insufficient for these Satan, Iblis following Wahhanis Idiots and theur Clones, that severely undervalues women and the Muslim Women’s Rights, and they want more.

      Please agitate to remove the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act, MMDA, and free the Sri Lankan Muslim girls and women. Bangla Desh and Turkey do not have such Tribal repressive laws, with Muslim majorities.

          “On a side note, how is the Desha Valami Law ( my spelling is incorrect here ) settle in with the Justice System in SL ? Shouldn’t this too be under the ‘one law’ practice ?”

          There are two issues here.

          One is civil law and one is criminal law.

          Desha Valami Law and Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act(MMDA) are civil laws, but with criminal actions,such as child marriages and child rape being “approved”, that is against the National Criminal Laws.

          So, we have a system, where divergent members of different communities are treated unequally based on religion and ethnicity under the same constitution. Is that acceptable? Isn’t is pampering to the Mullahs and Priests?

          In the case of the Wahhabi Salafi idiots who follow the Devil, Satan, Iblis, at Puttalam, they took criminal law into their own hands.

        For Heaven’s sake, it is bad enough as it is without bringing in another religion into the affray. Sri Lanka is a secular country and all Sri Lankans must abide by just one set of laws i.e. Sri Lankan Laws, irrespective of class, creed or religion of the subjects.

      So you think every dick and harry in your quasi community has a law degree in sharia law, So they understand it pretty well, We can accept these judgements instead of our courts?

      The actual condition is not so complex,
      If the man has dick and woman has a vagina, it is their solemn right to do whatever they wish with mutual consent! They are grown enough to accept the consequences! Who are you? angel of almighty; to decide it for other people!

      It is not the foreskin that should be cut off of the perpetrators of these heinous crimes against opposite sex, Their mothers should cut off everything at their birth, so they will not breed more mongrels to repeat the same crime.

      By stating that the actual conditions are so complex and it is almost impossible for anybody to be condemned under this law, you acknowledge that there is such a draconian law in Sharia. The fact that there is this brutal law existing is enough for misguided people to implement this law and even the existence of such laws become superfluous and should be eliminated, whether it is to be well understood or not.

      You are statement is very hazy and evasive and you are trying to cover this up by accusing the media of twisting.

      To all of you people that think Islam is a healthy thing that respects women rights, I like you to tell that to this woman. Islam is NOT a race, NOT an ethnic group, NOT a country, and most definitely NOT peace loving, so criticism of it is NOT racism. This phenomenon is a brutal, savage, and merciless religion that promotes the killing and oppression of anyone that isn’t Islamist (as per the Qu’ran) and views women as inferior things that are no more than mere possessions of their males superiors and therefore if a woman is raped it’s definitely her fault. Sounds fucked up? That’s because it is fucked up, and like ALL religions its ultimate goal is to rule the whole damn world in a state of absolute religious oppression.

      Time to wake up people, religion is the ultimate enemy of mankind and no religion have made as much progress in destroying the free world as Islam had. This story comes from Dubai, the pretty sky scrapper boasting Dubai that have been sold to the west as a beacon of civilization, yet Dubai’s key underlying reality is Islam!

      The other religions are not much different.

      You the guys, make it a worse day to another as nothing else you got to do in terms of the lanken issues, but I really dont mind even if the president and PM would have been from minorities. What matter sis the person s credentials, and us all under one banner -SRILANKENS…. do you think in a country consist of multiethnic folks it would be easy any minority candidate with extreme thought bearing would ever be able to do the job. So long, the guys would remain like late valuable sons like Kadiragamar or other politicians did the job – nothing would be the case.

      Relocating Sambandan and his Vellalahs and you and your Dalits back to your motherland in South India is not only desirable but also a necessity, even if it means ethnic cleansing.

      Is it not reasonable to deport the entire clan back to Malasia/Indonesia?

      “TNA party leader Mr Sambnadan ‘s new demand is one Federal State combining the North and the East.”

      Please go to Tamil Nadu. There is already a Federal State Tamil Nadu, for Tamils. Besides, the people in the East do nor want the Vellahala Caste System as well, and the Sinhala and Muslims do not want that. What are you going to do afterwards? Ethnically cleanse Sinhala and Muslims from the Tamil Federal State? Mr. Sambandan, what is your IQ anyway? 79?

      In Tamil Nadu, the Tamils are not called Para-Tamils, just Tamils.

      You can stay in Lanka, the Land of Native Vedda Veddhh, as Para-Tamils, just like your Para-Cousins, Para-Sinhala. Why not take your Para-Sinhala cousins and deposit them in Bihar and Orissa? That way the Land of Native Veddah Aethho can be kept pristine. Please take the other Paras as well. India, Bharat is large enough to accommodate ALL the Paras from Lanka.

      Cholan, you may know nothing about Europe, go to pakistani corners in UK. Are there all in Jails ? They have even provided all the necessary them the extremists to mobilise easily. :In Germany it is not the case, since they filter everything. It is the only country in Europe, if any kind of extremistic waves would rise, to have controlled by their sophisticated mechanism.
      But you guys not having the kind of threat in the poor country -s rilanka, exaggerating a lot.

      Today Joint opposition and nothern extremists groups seem to be doing lot more harm than all various groups of muslim together. Even if some women are focrced to wear making them frieghtining look for example burga, hijab Alkhimar or the like – not every country in europe give more freedom to practise such things as seen in the UK. I personally believe, all kind of the exaggerating covering not allowing easy identificaiton should be banned anywhere in srilannka. That is very dangerous for a country which has over 30 year long brutal terror experience. And where the people are well informed about islam, would not allow those fanatic men to abuse their women. Too much of any thing is bad.

        @ Leelawathie

        1- In Belgium a Turkish father shot and killed his own daughter who born and bred in Belgium is tasting prison life .

        2-Father and son of Pakistani origin who have killed own family member girl for having affair with non-muslim inside home bathroom now enjoying life imprisonment in U.K

        3-In Canada a Afghan father drowned his all 3 daughters in a lake inside a car will never come out of the prison.

        In E.U for genetical mutilation a stone age islamic practice 8 years prison .life waiting.

        In European hospitals western nurses are screaming when they prepare muslim women for child birth seeing the condition of her private part cut and mutilated.

        You are right many these Muslims never tell what is happening inside their community knowing very well this is barbaric ..also marrying western born teenage girls to a Pakistani village uneducated idiots is very common ..a great Islamic teaching..

        Now U,K government opened specila phone lines and secret centers in Pakistan to these poor British Muslim girls who run away from her idiotic ..uneducated ..village ..husband.

        In Bangladesh one village alone has got 4,000 British passport holders living in U.K ..taking even 14 years girls for a vacation and marry them to a Bengal guy who guard cattle is very common ..later this husband will apply for U.K visa..who can’t speak one word English like his mother-in-law living in U.K.

        But marring western woman for resident permit is gladly accepted in Islam.

        In Turkemistan muslims husbands working in Russia divorce their wives on phone or by sending SMS
        today 50% woman are divorced in this country because of Islamic teachings and suffering to feed thei kids.

        In Pakistan one Mullah living in stone age even given fatwah saying now marriage is possible on Skype also divorce …it seems Koran even mention about phone ..internet ..skype .

        Go and see massage parlors in Bangkok …Asian muslims in beard including ulaamahs..mullahas are in queue to enjoy the service of infidel pork eating Thai girls ..no haram when you do secretly .

        Strict laws required to correct these fanatics . this can’t continue .

          In my days -30 years ago – in the country those frieghtining l burga, hijab Alkhimar or the like were not the case – no muslim women had such costumes. This should have been fashion over the years – so, I believe, there should be one dress code for them all as is the case in some islamic countries. This they should openly discuss and come to a solution since the kind of costumes only mouth s and eyes uncovered but all others can bring this country a hamful era again. Who knows who is behind those pyramid style body coverings once I happened to see in Birgmingham/UK – in front of a cafetaria we had our lunch – our grand child she as then just 2 years old, started crying as nobody could help her from. All in all, the black pyramid style body covering of a woman standing next to her shoudl have caused psychological shocks to the little girl. This i later questioned her, she said, granny, it was the feeling I had to that time. This is girl is now 18years by her age. So that is why i am telling the kind of dress wearing regardless of the country – should be fully band. No matter other harmless hair coverings /scalves or the life so long that would not harm those who wear them. Also in Germany there are some hospitals, they as lady doctors are not welcome if they woudl wear their head scalves as a muslim. I simply believe we should tolerate all thse to some extent only. Countries such ours – being in developing world, majority of them being the culprits and crime promotors, to allow those head andbody coverings should be subjected to a heavy criticism and banned finally leaving us all in peace. Never ever again allow any kind of riots to be the case in the country. Enough is enough we suffered 30 long years.. 365 x 30 days = 10950 days… almost everyone was hurt by the civl war by everymeans regardless of where they had been.

          Cholan;

          Why is Sri Lanka allowing Muslim Laws to be active in Sri Lanka?

          As you have correctly pointed out in your Comment, no other Country that is not Muslim, allows a Foreign Law to be practised in their Country!

      This is right..

      Our poor women that work as Housemaids in ME countries return home having face all the sexual abuses by those saudi, baharain or the like country men.
      Those men are so hypocrite but behave like animals within their 4 walls.

      These should be brought before the UNO humanrights violations exposing them adequately.

      I simply believe, their religious behavoiurs are just hypocracies. In reality those men are animals, even Bonabos could be better.

        Lanken NGOs can go for a survey in collecting the facts regarding the inhuman harm being done to those former housemaids that have now returned home. Not only sexual crimes, but also minor crimes such throwing hot water to body parts, cutting body parts or the like various phsyical assualts or their erotic foreplays in contenting the pervert of those inhuman arab men should be discused broadly by lanken authorities. These facts then we have to enter in a local data bank so that future generation can make use of them properly. I think if we would interview 500 of the returnees after having their house hold related employments to the home country – all these information pro towns/country should be analaysed by lanken professinals in the respective areas (Psyhology and sociologay, paedogogy etc). I believe lanken authorities should have started the kind of tracing for information long go, if not it is high time to go for it.

        These men regardles of their wealth should be punished if not today tomorrow. Those unbelievably man dominated illiterate arab cultures should not be given any right to abuse poor women that way. basta

      For each offence, remove one ball, then the penis and leave a hole for urination. Then the women will be safe, and there will be no need for burkas and Niquabs.

    I am asking this because I am have no Idea about laws in Islam. Many of the the Muslim men I know even during school days have sexual-relationships with non-Muslim men, especially Sinhala girls. One person I know told me point blank it is OK to have sex with a concubine in Islam. A Sinhala-Buddhist or Tamil-Hindu girls are suitable for sexual relations. So, in Islam is OK for Muslim men to have any amount of sexual partners while Muslim women are confined to their husband?

    I am awaiting a response from an expert.

        cholan, I wouldn’t know anything about what you said. I’ve never been to those countries. But what I am saying is what quite a few SL Muslim men have told me. They portray SL Muslim women as highly discipline and chaste while the rest of SL women are “Promiscuous”. I mean, some even boast to my face that they’ve “been with” so many Sinhala girls while I would never ever even be able to set a finger on a Muslim woman because they are so pure. They claim it is not a sin to have sexual relations out of wedlock with a non-Muslim woman especially, Buddhists, Hindu, Jain, Atheist, Agnostic women. Thats what I’ve been told. I do not know the accuracy of those statements.

          Many contradictions of this Time Machine called Islam .which will take you back to 6th century .

          Inside walls Muslims consume alcohol ..no haram

          Inside room Muslims take drugs.no haram

          Indeed the biggest drug consumption in the world is Pakistan

          Killing or having sex with non muslim is right…

          Burning or insulting Koran is a crime but Muslims can burn other religious books and insult other religions .

          accepting intrest is prohibited in Islam but accepting commission (other name ) and bribe is not haram.

          In Maradana brothels they regularly arrest Muslims girls …and Afghan teenage girls are in Colombo to service rich clients ..no haram

          This is the only religion in the world which legalize robbery as a job..rape is not a crime .

          Thanos,

          Sexual relations between a muslim man and a muslim or non-muslim woman, outside marriage, is described in many Quranic verses to be ‘Zina’ (illicit sex). It includes extramarital sex and premarital sex, such as adultery (consensual sexual relations outside marriage), fornication(consensual sexual intercourse between two unmarried persons),and homosexuality (consensual sexual relations between same-sex partners). It is considered to be a major sin [Quran 17:32, Quran 25:68-69].

          Do not be fooled by the vain boasts of some muslim men regarding their sexual exploits. In many such cases it is only a cover for their sexual inadequacies or expressions of their unrealizable fantasies.

            The Blushing Burkini

            If two or more consenting adults have sex outside marriage, it is a choice they should be allowed to make. It is none of your business to interfere in other people’s life.

            Only the secular law should be applied in the case of adultery, to compensate aggrieved party and children.

            Trust in the institutions of marriage and family are being torn a part in this world every second of the day for reasons other than adultery.

            What are the Mosques, Temples, Vihares, Churches … doing about it?

            Are you the father or mother of the men who hurt the woman and inflicted grievous bodily harm?

            The outdated religious books written in ancient or medieval period are not the answer to adultery or any other moral issues as long as the men and women abide by sexual mores that include rape, incest, and sexual abuse of children.

            You seem to encourage the men’s behaviour while ignoring the fact that the woman has not spoken about her side of the story. Did the men demand sexual favour from the women who might have refused to serve them.

            Do you believe in the public scrutiny of private parts?

            If your Koran is true many Arab husbands in Middle East will be in prisons….these Islamic animals rape all foreign maids .

            But your Islam need 8 witness to prove rape…this was suitable in 6th century when many Arab families lived under one tent..how can you apply how can you apply this law to the residents today high rise apartments .next time when you go to mosque ask your Immam.

            Did your Koran mention about DNA test.

            Indeed Islam allow rape ..this is why in many Islamic countries 50 years man marry 14 years girl under western law this is rape and they will send for 25 years prison do you know?

            What is the best phone Samsung..Apple..Sony ?…you must know about these phones to tell …but if you use only Sony phone you will say it is the best …Islam like to keep followers in 6th century and still you believe ..come out from your dark cave first before preaching others .Know about other religions then you will know where you stand .

            There is only one GOD …there is no special God for muslims …

        “In Malaysia and Maldives muslim teenagers having sex before marriage is very common but these two countries imposing pure (??) islam with Saudi money “

        The Wahhabi , Saudis, practice what is called Sharia Prostitution and Slavery prostitution and concubines, coming from old tribal customs and “Islamic” Traditions pf Arabia.

        1. They have temporary “Sharia marriages” for 5 min to may be 30 days or more. After the “Sharia marriage”, then they have sex with “Sharia legal wife” that is Halal, “Approved”. The they divorce Sharia Way, saying “Talak”, “Talked” and “Talak”, and the man and women are now free to go on to the next deal.

        2. In the case of slaves, they can each Sex. That is permitted, because they “own” them.

        Anyway those are the “Rules of Engagement” in Sharia. Thre are more details, but the Wahhabies and their clones do nor usually follow them,

        3. There is no lower limit for the age of the women for Marriage.

    There should not be any Sharia Law in Sri Lanka, We Sri Lankan has equal rights to live and co exist with all faiths.

    Due to irrational behavior of few extremist forces, they should not label all Muslims are extremist.

    We Muslims believe in the moderate path and we do not support any form of extremism in Sri Lanka.

    Sadly, due to visibility in public domain by few Sri Lankan Muslims with their dress codes with full face cover and men in Taliban kits have disturbed the peaceful co existence among communities.

    With regard to Puttalam incident, taking law to their own hand by laymen, should be dealt with as per the governing law of Sri Lanka.

      “With regard to Puttalam incident, taking law to their own hand by laymen, should be dealt with as per the governing law of Sri Lanka.”

      Taking the law to their hand has been common to lanken corners specially during the last few years alone. I thought there had been anarchy at the time, oppositoin MPs VISITING hambantota harboour was attacked brutally the manner nobody with brains could ever see. Anyways, the head of state to that time – Mr Athigaru interpreted it ” those men were provoked by the visiting MPs so they reacted accordingly, there he does not see anything to have done wrong by those rascals “. This interepreted the listerners as if Rajaakshes men instipulated the acts of violence that way being resistent to then opposition. TOday the man dares to talk fairy tales if any tiny incients would cause some problems in the country.

      I truly believe, the 10 years that was governed by Mr Athigaru brought all harms with only exception- his term found the end to the 30 year long war – anyways, collectivity succeeded but media men interpreted as they were asked to do the job. Even today the very same journalists further consuiming the Rajaakshes extrements as greedy swine do the job, continue their usual work.
      That is the reason we even today see nothing tangible changes are seen in the system.
      But I believe, thre has been a big change in the system compared ot the previous one.. if one woudl closely study it. God bless srilanka.

    This pathetic incident does not call for a detailed discussion or debate about the pros and cons of Shariah Law. To do so only serves to distract attention from the fact that a heinous crime was committed against a member of the fairer sex.

    Sri Lanka is not a Muslim Country and Shariah Law is not accepted in Sri Lanka. Full stop.

    At the end of the day, if the news item is true and correct, 4 ‘manly’ Muslim men took it upon themselves to play the roles of judge, jury & executioner and punish a woman for having ‘an affair with a man’ – another weak, miserable specimen of their own sex. Why have these 4 Muslim men not inflicted similar punishment on the man involved ? A lack of testicular fortitude, perhaps ?

    Shame on you, my brothers, damn shame.

    Has it not sunk into your dense brains as yet that we minority Muslims are living in a cosmopolitan society and that our biggest challenge is live up to the high standards imposed by the Almighty without causing our wonderful religion, Islam, to become the object of jokes and derisive comments ?

    Or is it the case that with each lash that you inflicted on the ‘sinner’, you were only lashing yourselves mentally to overcome your feelings of guilt for not being ‘good’ muslims ?

    @aswer I agree it must be a complex set if rules that when followed correctly makes it impossible, as you say for anyone to be condemn….
    Then why have those?
    Having such a set of rules makes it so ambiguous when to take rules in holy books literally or not, which paves way to different individual interpreting them differently and thus doing more harm than good.
    Don’t u think?

    they can not not because most probably all these buggers must be womanizers , drunkards and drug peddlers themselves .

    We want the government to take mercilessly strict action and start investigating all mosques and madarasas .

    This is the beginning of ISIS and Taliban ,who have now forged alliance secretly

    Every women who dress like them and every man who’s appearance are like them are in no doubt are following their ideology and need to to be investigated ..

    The government will be held responsible.

    every Mosque and madrasa must be monitored ,and Puttalam must be taken-over immediately and other ethnic groups must be settled in government lands to reduce the ethnic ratio of the extremists.

    Please send out the CID to check the so-called Muslim bookshops to see what they are up-to. by next week we are expecting an iron fist action against these extremists , they are now silently spreading all over the Island .

    Extremist should not be allowed to establish homes ,schools , prayer houses and business close to high security zones .

    Muslims in Sri Lanka a generation or two ago despite being very conservative never behaves in this manner. The reason for this is previously despite being classifies as a different community from the non Muslim Tamils in the island, they were still very Tamil in their customs culture way of life and were very content with this. They were following the very tolerant,100 year old Tamil Sufi Islam, that they had brought from their original South Indian homeland.

    Prior to independence the difference between the island’s Muslims and Tamil population was very marginal, in fact there was a far greater difference between the Kandyan and Low Country Sinhalese. Even the British as well as the other European colonials, despite incorrectly classifying them as Moors, still treated them, as a section and part and parcel of the greater Tamil identity and ethnicity. No separate Muslim schools or other treatment, they all came under the Tamil umbrella, as it correctly should have been.

    Now due to dirty politic of divide and rule the island’s Tamils by all Sinhalese led governments from independence and the Muslim elite from the south, the gap between the island’s Sri Lankan Muslims who in reality are Tamil by ethnicity and the non Muslims Tamils has become huge, on the contrary every Sinhalese led government from the time of independence has now bridged the great gap that existed between the Kandyan and Low Country Sinhalese prior to existence to the extent that they are now even for census purposes not classified as two people but one. In contrast they, the Sinhalese elite/establishment, not satisfied with the dividing the Muslim and non Muslim Tamils, now make every attempt to further divide the island’s Tamil on the basis of region, origin( Indian or indigenous, strange when around 50% of the present Sinhalese population are also of very recent Indian origin), religion ( Hindu or Christian) and caste. Whilst every effort is made to forge a common Sinhalese identity. Various Sinhalese commentators deliberately come here and try to highlight regional religious and caste difference amongst the island’s Tamils and even encourage political and other groups forming on these basis, but completely ignore the still simmering regional ( Kandyan/Low country) religious( Buddhist/Catholic/Protestant) and caste differences amongst the island’s Sinhalese.

    Coming back to the Muslims, in order to justify this artificial ethnic division amongst the island’s Muslims that is based only on a religion and not on origin or heritage, as other than a few die hard extremist, everyone knows that there is hardly any Arab or Moorish blood amongst the island’s Muslims but they are all more or less descended from immigrant Dravidian Tamil Hindu converts to Islam who migrated to the island a few centuries ago. The Muslims masses have been encouraged and brain washed by their power hungry selfish elite, that in order to be a good Muslim, they have to hate and discard everything Tamil and become and try to look like some pathetic carbon clones of the Gulf Arabs and follow their primitive stone age culture.

    They should also now discard the 1000 year old very tolerant form of Tamil Sufi Islam that they had been practising so far and now adopt the very intolerant primitive Wahhabi/Salafist form of Islam, that now unfortunately is being spread around the world by the Gulf Arabs with their oil money. They will not help poor pathetic Palestinians Syrians ,Iraqi or Afghans only spread this extreme vile form of Islam, that the most intolerant and primitive form of Islam, far from the enlightened form of Islam that was practised in Spain.

    Basically they are have now equated Islam and being a Muslim with Arabism and the Gulf Arab culture. Just to justify this so called artificially created religious based Muslim ethnicity in the island. If the Muslim masses identify themselves as Tamils who are Muslims and follow a Tamil Muslim culture that will be far more tolerant and accepting of others. This will not be acceptable Muslims elite/politicians in the island as they want to control these people for their own economic and political benefits. The Sinhalese establishment are also encouraging this, as they do want to see a united powerful Tamil population in the island but a weak divided one, So both are encouraging this new found artificial Muslim identity and driving the island’s Muslim population more and more into extreme forms of Islam and practices. You cannot be a Muslim and a Tamil. Like in other countries. Just a Muslim. To be a good Muslim a woman now cannot wear a saree or half saree but now must wear the Burka or the Hijab and dress like a goni billah. In the east many females have been sent threatening letters for wearing a Saree, stating they look too Tamil and are not respecting their Muslim identity. What has wearing a Saree or frock got to do with Muslim identity? Malay Muslim women wear the sarong Khabaya. Basically everything has to be Arab with no trace of Tamil to confirm to this new Islamic Muslim identity, when most Muslims in the world are not Arabs. No one tells Christians to look like some carbon copy of the Jews or Buddhist/Hindus to look. like Indians. Only the Muslims in Sri Lanka must look like Arabs and behave like one. Now they are even growing date palms in many Muslim majority enclaves in the east, so that the area will look like the Arabian Gulf. Many ancient Tamil places names in the east have now been changed to Arab place names like Saddam Hussein Village and the Sri Lankan government encourages this.

    Now Sharia law, next stoning of women then they will all stop speaking Tamil as this does not confirm with their Muslim identity or ethnicity and start speaking Arabic/Urdu or something else that is completely strange to the land but what their elite will say confirms with Islam. Their elite brainwash their masses to behave in this manner but study in the English medium and live a very westernised life. Hatred, especially towards their fellow non Muslim Tamils and Wahhabism for their masses for them to be rich powerful and comfortable. The Sinhalese are now only waking up to what they have done and encouraged in order to destroy the island’s Tamils. They are still doing this in the east, encouraging the Muslims to steal the land from the indigenous Tamils and Tamilised Vedda Hindus and the end result will be a big headache for the entire region. What happened in Puttalam will look like a child’s tea party. We already have Islamic extremist basket cases like Porkistan Afghanisan and Bangladesh in the region and now a Wahhabi Salafist Islamic enclave in the east, created on stolen ethnically cleansed Tamil lands with the blessing of a racist Sinhalese state.

    It is a good thing that these men were shown the consequences of taking the law into their own hands and behaving in such a stone age fashion. If they want to follow these backward laws they should migrate to a country that follows such primitive laws. There should be only one law for everyone, and everyone must go through the same court of law. This is crazy, and most Muslims will agree that this is not how they want to live.
    These are Wahabi laws and they do not apply to a multi religious nation. This is the result of Saudi Arabia trying to influence the Muslims here, it must be rejected. Saudi Arabia has a very bad image around the world because of it’s primitive laws, stoning people to death for adultery, and women not allowed to drive.
    Those who thing that is wonderful should go live over there.

      Malaysian Supreme court has ruled that only Malays can use the word ALLAH..how is this joke ?

      Bible in Malay and Sheik religion used the word Allah over 100 years .

      After all there word Allah is not a Malay word .

      Even a Middle Eastern newspaper editorial ridiculed this ruling .

      Cheers

        The word Allah in Arabic Elohim in Hebrew or even the word El the Sun God in old Tamil( hence the old Tamil names Ellan or Ellalan or the female form of like goddess Elammah now Yellamah in Kannada and Telugu) are all derived from the same root. El the ancient name for god. The original Dravidians came from the eastern part of Mediterranean and settled down in India during prehistoric tribes. This is why you will seem many basic words common to Dravidian and the Semitic languages of western Asia. Siva or Sivan is an ancient Tamil god another name for him is Eesan in Tamils and this word is still commonly used by Tamils to describe god. Eesa or Eesan means the one who gives or provides, meaning god. Siva. This word/name is still commonly used in the middle east. In various forms Esa,Esu, Esua Eshua meaning Jesus. All these names are for god and has commonly used by many people. As all these people originally had a common origin. The eastern Mediterranean. The ancient Tamil/Dravidian Saivites, the Jews the Aramaic people, then the Christians and Muslims and so the word modern Arabic word Allah for god that is derived from the ancient Aramain word Allahi or Ellahi meaning god( This is what Lord Jesus shouted out when he was crucified in Aramaic). Or the old Tamil word for god or the Sun god El or the Hebrew word god Eloheim all have the same root. So who the hell are these Muslims now to claim the word Allah is only theirs and no one else can use this. When many ancient people weer using this word. Arab Christians call god Allah. As Allah in Arabic or Eloheim or El in Hebrew or El in old Tamil only means god, not just a Muslim god as now many people commonly believe.

          @ R S S S

          You are correct
          In Spain SELVA and SELVI names are common in certain regions ..even HOTEL SELVA ..SELVI jewelry are used in commercial sector.

          But the problem with Muslim is they think ALLAH is their god…while this is a Arabic name for God.

            If everybody says there is a god named Allah, then 50% of the problems are over. Rest of the problem will be on who are the messengers of Allah and how to worship him etc.

    The biggest mistake SL made is endorsing the followers of TIME machine called Islam as a separate ethnic group .

    There can be only 2 groups in this land.

    Sinhalese

    Tamils

    Muslims can’t be a separate identity ..

    So either this Muslims must assimilate with Sinhalease or with Tamils let then practice stone age sect.

    Constitution need a change in this subject ,over to experts.

    “The men, had imposed the Islamic Shariah law themselves against the woman, on charges that she had committed infidelity.”

    What is important to note here is that Shariah is merciless to women. The “Judge” will always be a male. Witness testimony carries more weight if the witnesses are men. The Quran was written from a patriarchal viewpoint, which assumes women are subservient to men. When you think about it, it is difficult to see how a woman can get fair justice under Shariah. I have read about adultery cases in the Middle East where a woman is stoned to death but the man is released after some lashings.
