Mosque In Dehiwala Visited By Cops Stoned, A Muslim Owned Jewellery Store Torched In Galle Last Night

A mosque in the Colombo suburb of Dehiwela that was ordered to stop issuing the call to prayer and conducting prayers in its premises by the Kohewela police two days ago was stoned last night, according to Muslim politicians and residents in the area.

The Masjidul As Shafee at Kadawatha Road in Kohuwela was stoned last night but police had arrived promptly to provide security, sources told Colombo Telegraph.

Earlier this week officers from the Kohuwela Police station entered three mosques in the Dehiwala Area and instructed the religious leaders to stop conducting prayers  and issuing the call to prayer five times a day.

Minister Rishard Bathiudeen intervened in the affair and notified the Acting IGP Gamini Navaratne and the DIG of the Western Province Anura Senanayake about the developments after residents informed him of the interference, the BBC reported.

Both Minister Bathiudeen and former Deputy Mayor of Colombo Azath Salley both visited the mosque after the attack.

The three mosques visited by the Police earlier this week were the Dehiwala Attidiya Majibul Hiba, the Masjidul As Shafee at Kalubowila and the Dehiwala Tharul Muslim Centre. It is not immediately clear why the police visited these mosques to make the request.

Meanwhile in Galle, a Muslim owned Jewellery store was torched late last night.

    It is a handful of extreme unbuddhist elements who are on this path probably with some impunity, but majority of real monks and Buddhists are definitely against BBS and their beliefs.
    I hope they BBS will soon be brought to justice or Sri Lanka will become another Taliban like regime in the Buddhist world. It’s up to the government to accept the place ’extremists’ in the Buddhist world or reject it.

    Those who act like Barbarians will become Barbarians. The absence of rule of law is a grave injustice to all law abiding tax paying citizens. The public pays all forms of taxes for security and safety. If the government fails, the people should take private measures to protect places of worship and their businesses.

    @AYMAN-

    FIRST KNOW THE FACTS BEFORE YOU START SHOOTING———————-

    YES IF YOU ARE FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE FOR THE MOSQUES THAT WERE LEGALLY APPROVED ARE BEING UNDER ATTACK, YES I AM WITH YOU- BUT THESE ARE MOSQUES DECEITFULLY CONSTRUCTED OR CONVERTED TO WHICH MOST OF THEM WERE HOMES ,WHAT IS WRONG IS WRONG, AND THE MOSQUE AT KADAWATHE ROAD IS ACTUALLY APART OF A STORES THAT BELONGS TO AN EXTREMELY RICH BUSINESSMAN, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE REAL MOTIVES IS TO GO TO EXTREME OF SUCH DECEITS TO BUILD MOSQUES ,WHILE WE HAVE MANY LEGAL MOSQUES THAT ARE IN DESPERATE IN OF FUNDS TO EXPAND AND RENOVATE AND PROVIDE TRAVELLING MUSLIM LADIES FACILITIES AND ARE HELPLESS,PLEASE DO A RESEARCH YOURSELF AND YOU WILL BE SHOCKED .

    THEN THERE ARE SO MANY MUSLIMS HOMELESS, LIVING IN SHANTIES WITH THE WORST HYGIENIC CONDITIONS ,IN SEVERE POVERTY , THERE ARE MUSLIM REFUGEES STILL IN CAMPS , NO HOPE, CHILDREN WHO CAN NOT CONTINUE EDUCATION , CHILDREN GOING TO SCHOOL EMPTY STOMACHS , TERMINALLY ILL MUSLIMS SUFFERING AS THEY CAN NOT AFFORD CANCER MEDICINES ,SOME HAVE BECOME BANKRUPT DUE TO ILLNESS, THESE ARE REAL BURNING ISSUES.

    VERSE AFTER VERSE IN THE HOLY QURAN GOD ALMIGHTY REMINDS US OF CHARITY AFTER PRAYER.

    I SEE RICH MUSLIM FOLKS DRIVING PAST EVEN THEIR OWN KIETH & KIN AT BUS STANDS IN HOT BURNING SUN ,OR GETTING WET IN RAIN , GOING TO SAME MOSQUE, BUT WILL NEVER STOP TO PROVIDE A LIFT , THEY WOULD RATHER DRIVE ALL ALONE ,CAUSING SO MUCH TRAFFIC AND GOING IN AND OUT ARROGANTLY AND UNRULY MANNER, PEOPLE WITH CARS AND VANS GOING TO MOSQUES ON FRIDAY ALONE CAN FORM A CAR POOL AND PICK UP FELLOW MUSLIMS AND ALSO CONTRIBUTE TO THESE EXISTING MOSQUES SO THEY CAN ACCOMMODATE MORE IT WOULD BE A GREAT BLESSING .

    THE ONLY CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER THAT IS AN OBLIGATION TO ALL MUSLIMS IS THE FRIDAY PRAYER , THE REST CAN BE PRAYED IN THE CONVENIENCE OF HOME ,THIS HALLUCINATION OF GREED THAT YOU WILL BE REWARDED AFTER DEATH WITH A PALACE FOR BUILDING MOSQUES IS NOTHING BUT A FABRICATION , PEOPLE SHOULD PAY ATTENTION TO MORE BURNING ISSUES THAT WILL UPLIFT THE UMMAH , EMPOWERING THEM WITH EMPLOYMENT INCOME ,HOUSING,ELIMINATING POVERTY ,PROVIDING EDUCATION AND MAKE OUR GIRLS INDEPENDENT SO GOD FORBID IF ILL-FATE MAKE THEM DIVORCEES OR WIDOWS THEY CAN BE SELF SUFFICIENT AND LIVE WITH HONOR AND DIGNITY ,,,, MUSLIMS WAKE UP, PEOPLE BEHIND THESE TYPE OF ILLEGAL MOSQUES KNOWN AS THANKIYAS HAVE A HIDDEN AGENDA..

    GOD KNOWS THE SECRETS OF ALL OF US..
    MAY PEACE PREVAIL.

    @WINSTON DEVALLIERE – your comment but helps me laugh at you- Good Sir of great Compassion , oh ,no,no we are not least offended by your rub it in nice and slow sarcasm.

    First and foremost remember every nation has the right to exercise its law of its land ,it may seem inhuman , taking a life whatever means boils down to the same , do you have any idea how they do it for chilies in china ?

    No you can not even imagine the level of cruelty not just to humans but even to animals ,for so much of a hala bala on Halal , it has now become a sickness in you bigots anything to do with Islam and Muslims, all you guys do is rush into either the way of killing cattle by Muslims , terrorism, oppression of women, child brides ,etc, although the slaughter method is used by Jews none bothers to talk about it.

    Killing of Animals leave alone for food even for commercial purpose for making fur coats will make your head spin in China,(I am also posting the links of the videos concerned so you can sit and enjoy watching it) then the executions in china, the numbers and methods you may never know. then when it comes to terrorism I can give you dozens of terrorists of past and present who are not Muslims and various type of terrorism and not forgetting the ruthless terrorism the Jews carried out on the people of Palestine before driving them out of their land and was the first terrorist and the fathers of terrorism which others simply copied from.you will talk about women being oppressed while Islam was the first to give women equal status in everything (I know you may not agree because I can see you have been very contextual in copy and paste of the article in your comment due to your narrow mindedness and deep sickness of prejudice which will always keep you as a frog in the well) …

    While besides Indian there are again many a country around the globe which treat women in the most insane manner ,India has a system where women are forced not only to child marriage but also to be a prostitute to the Gods of the temple, in some of their scriptures it is required to get baby girls married off when they are running naked as babies toddler etc, while Muslims offer cattle as sacrifice to feed the poor there are cults around the world some even heard of in Sri Lanka not long ago to offer children as sacrifice, no one dares talk about it, remember bigot ,when you point fingers at others there are always three pointing towards you , you want to express yourself be a gentleman do it with a fair and just manner and make sure you are commenting on the subject concerned , not shooting blindly just because your have a filthy soul polluted with prejudice against one particular community or religion.

    Besides the case about Rizana, she and her parents are to be blamed more than anyone for lying about her age ,cheating the sri Lankan government and her parents should be taken in for aiding and abating for forgery and bringing bad reputation to the Sri Lankan government and portraying this country as a corrupt Country where even passports are forged with ease , a document of such great security to the country , and to end just to let you know in Saudi the Law is the same for king and commons , Prince or laborer the penalty is the same , so stop making an ass of yourself by trying to be all lovey-dovey towards Rizana , we and the Suadi government knew the game , the real reason behind all the fake compassion was not for Rizana , if Rizana was pardoned that was suppose to be used as a bargain for all future criminals release- do not under estimate any people , they are smart in their own ways remember they too have Abraham’s genes .,

    Meanwhile sit back and enjoy the links posted below it will either enlighten you if you are willing to let your sick brain think or you will remain a bigot forever, the choice is yours bigot.

    and next time make sure to educate yourself more before copying and pasting .

    Hon.Azath Sally Voices on kadawatte Road Kohuwela Mosque attacks , calls upon His Excellency The President to take action , further he claims the President and his government must take responsibility for these attacks ,according to Hon.Azath Sally SO FAR TWENTY (29) Mosques has been attacked to date ,and according to Hon. Azath sally these attacks are politically motivated and 99.9 % of the Sinhalese Buddhist are peace loving people and easy to live with and have nothing to do with these attacks .

    A very humble message .. will His Excellency respond? we do not know the future of Our Muslim Children in Sri Lanka anymore.

    =================================================================

    SRI LANKAN MUSLIM HAVE A DUTY UPON THEMSELVES TO VOTE HAKEEM OUT AND CAST MAXIMUM VOTES TO HON.AZATH SALLY HE IS ALSO THE MOST RESPECTED SENIOR MINISTER HON.FOWZY’S NEPHEW , we have a duty to pave the path for Hon.Azath sally to follow Hon. Minister .Fowzy , and only Hon.Azath Sally is capable of bringing peace between the Muslims and The Sinhalese, leaving Politics aside , anyways there is still a Bond of friendship between His.Excellency The President and Hon.Azath Sally, it is time to remove the Muslim congress permanently and replace it with NUA the dream of late Hon.Ashraff, I kindly request Hon.Azath sally to start a dialogue with His excellency and other Sinhalese Political parties and find a lasting peaceful solution for the sake of our future generation which includes all communities

    Taking into consideration of His excellency’s logic of the inability to apprehend a murderer immiedeitly escaping into an independent federal state /province or confederate .

    I wonder if the following Political change may take shape in Sri Lanka in the coming year 2014..

    The Political constituency of Sri Lanka may go through a complete change in the coming year 2014
    ———————————————————————————————————————————————

    I believe the Local governments may be completely abolished , Village Headman aka Grama niladari may also be removed permanently taking into consideration the amount of corruption and crimes committed by these members and their staff , besides the lack of a proper mechanism to monitor these local governments and punish the offenders by the ruling central government ,if such a change takes place it may benefit the people greatly , a Group parliamentary representatives constituency may be the best possible solution to Sri Lanka’s Political reforms.

    1)What I foresee as a possible political change in Sri Lanka may be the replacing of the executive President by an Executive Prime minister answerable to The Parliment , reducing the government direct ministerial portfolio to minimum as possible.

    2) Each electorate may be managed by a group of elected MPs represented by percentage of the ethnic groups, directly answerable to the parliament , The members may be elected either by The none executive President of the country or a parliament select committee.
    .

    The management of the electoral may be managed by officials appointed by the Group of MPs representing the electorate

    The Country may also go into full swing of E services , where the citizens will not require to waste time with officials and red tapes , which will provide the citizens the privilege of sitting at the comfort of their homes and attending to their official requirements ,further it will also guarantee the full revenue that is due to the government and also if this what I believe could be the 2014 political change it will also provide every law abiding citizen equal opportunities and avoid unethical practices.

    However The current local government system is something that have failed miserably and I am very confident the government will do away with it .

    Let us Hope for a better future for all Sri Lankans in the coming year 2014.

    No doubt this is the work of Gothabaya he does these things indirectly
    through the police, army and other forces and his intention is to create
    some problems in the country to divert the attention of the suffering
    people. These Junta buggers ruined this country and these buggers deserve
    death soon, hope people will teach them a lesson very soon. You can’t
    fool all the people all the time. God save this country from these most
    corrupted bastards.

    I was reading comments here and once again I came up with the truth… Religions split people, spread hatred and proliferate discrimination. Just look at yourself!

    Religions are just tools of mind control. It is a true weapon of mass destruction.

    Oh dear, so many people still believing blindly in those fairy-tales!
    WAKE UP! Start questioning and thinking by yourself. Blind faith leads you to ignorance, stupidness and hatred. You can be intelligent human beings, not just sheep!

    Can’t you see that all of it is just some political strategy…

    Good luck to you all.
