Muslim Community Badly Needs A Ananthi Sasitharan

Muslim Community Badly Needs a Fearless Voice: Not politicians, wheeler-dealers and businessmen turned sell outs

It appears that Sri Lanka’s beleaguered and besieged Muslim community badly needs a Ananthi Sasitharan and not the spineless politicians, wheeler-dealers, businessmen ,media men and others who turned sell outs. This is the inevitable conclusion sensible Muslims are forced to arrive following last Tuesday’s ( 25 February 2014) informal gathering some of them  had with Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. It was an opportunity to bring to Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s notice the issues faced by the Muslims and its devastating impact on communal harmony.

However the participants, except two, miserably failed in their duty and betrayed the community by choosing to stay silent. It appears they were keen on pleasing the Defense Secretary, perhaps for their personal benefits, than highlighting Muslim issues.

According to reliable information this informal meeting was mooted by Colombo Mayor Muzammil who had selected most of the participants, perhaps to suit his agenda. Invitations were sent out by Senior Minister Mr. A.H.M.Fowzie in his ministry letter head clearly stating that the purpose of the meeting was for “a discussion pertaining to relevant Muslim issues   in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere”.

The meeting was held at well known and respected businessman philanthropist Refai Hajiar’s house at Bambalapitiya.

Though the meeting was to discuss Muslim issues, yet the invitees were told in advance by leading lawyer Faisz Mustapha “not to ask any questions which would embarrass the guest”.

In his introductory opening speech Moderator Faisz Mustapha failed to lay the ground work for a discussion that would have brought to the fore some of the serious issues including the inaction of the security forces when dealing with attacks on Mosques, dress code of Muslim women and so forth. The programme was over dressed by Mustapha’s opening to please the Defense Secretary.

Nonetheless it was a good opportunity for the Muslims to place the issues across the board, obtain positive responses and close the divide dented by BBS. However the participants were not given the opportunity to ask relevant questions and thus an opportunity to put across the Muslim grievances was missed.

Mustapha’s opening speech should have focused in the most dignified language; he is known to be capable of, the concerns of this beleaguered community. He blew away the seriousness of the moment by his remark that, “we lawyers do not appear for free”, leaving a flak in the face of the audience that he too is having his own agenda!

He displayed his anxiety by announcing that there would be no oral questions but questions must be written on a 4X2 chit that was handed out and collected back by Mustapha who himself selected the questions to be asked. Participants, mostly from the business community, some of whom may be keen to get close to the powerful man, at the cost of the long suffering Muslim community, were relieved that they don’t need to expose themselves by raising community concerns.

There were around 25 or 30 written questions submitted to Faisz Mustapha who selected few of them, perhaps those which do not deal with any serious issues, to ensure his host is not embarrassed.

In fact the question time, which followed a long 50 minute surprising speech by the Defense Secretary, turned out to be a disaster of Himalayan proportion reflecting the shallowness of the participants. The speaker would have gone home with the disastrous impression that the Muslims do not have a single serious problem except relating to some educational problems!

During question time one spoke about the difficulty in getting children admitted to leading Sinhala schools, insisting that every national school should admit at least 10% from every religion. Good question put without prioritizing other more grave security related questions.

Hussein Mohamed spoke about his father former minister M.H.Mohamed’s Islamic Centre promoting national unity.

This was followed by the  chairman of Muslim Media Forum and Muslim Council of Sri Lanka N.M. Ameen who, according to website Colombo Telegraph” stated that “ Muslim can live in peace under the able leadership of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, asked “why not open a Muslim school in Dehiwala”. However Ameen later told me that participants were not given the opportunity to raise any question pertaining to the community’s burning issues. Lawyer Iqbal Mohamed came up with   issues of relevance. He asked about the attacks on Mosques, Muslim female attire and the Halal removal.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa replied the third issue and said “well I thought nobody had talked against Halal during the last three months” and looked at Mayor Muzammil who was seen nodding his head in approval.

During this tragic comedy lawyer double M. Zuhair raised the pertinent issue of the reported closure of Kadawatte Road Mosque in Dehiwala. He said only that very evening an ASP from Mt. Lavinia Police with an IP from Kohuwala Police had gone to this Mosque and told them that a case had been filed in Magistrate’s Court on orders of the Buddhasasana Ministry to close this Mosque. This Mosque, he told the gathering is a Mosque approved by the Wakf Board, the only legal body authorized to register Mosques under the law.  The Defense Secretary Rajapaksa responded promptly, spoke to a top police official and told him no approved Mosque should be closed and given his phone to Zuhair to speak and follow up with the Sr. DIG the next day. The very next evening an SP had gone to the Mosque and informed them not to close the Mosque but continue prayers.

However none raised  issues such as resettlement of ethnic cleansed Muslims from north, plight of Muslim tsunami victims  suffering  to date without housing facilities, refusal to hand over 500 houses built  for Muslim tsunami victims by the Saudi government, land and other problems of Muslims in the east and even north, the recent developments of organized  vicious hate campaign against Muslims which included attacks on mosques, business establishments, campaign against animal slaughter, ban of halal food sales, Muslim women’s dress code and many such acts of  hooliganism besides discrimination in employment in the government ,semi government and even armed forces including police.

None of this was raised by the participants. The question is unless these issues were brought to the notice how the government would know the mood among Muslims who have lost all their confidence in their politicians.

However the Muslim community as a whole appreciate when Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa highlighted, in his speech, the sufferings the Muslims in the east which they underwent during the three decades of LTTE war because Muslims did not support the LTTE, the role played by Muslims in the intelligence services during which many, including Col Lafir, sacrificed their lives for the country. He also pointed out how many Christians were holding top positions in the armed forces irrespective of their religions and that the head of the Intelligence Division in the Defense Ministry is a Muslim.

Many in the community who heard about the meeting appreciated Mr. Rajapaksa’s decision to open up a discussion with the Muslim community but severely criticized in one voice     for not allowing to highlight Muslim issues in the larger interest of the country.

Defense Secretary provided an opportunity to highlight Muslim grievances in a free and friendly atmosphere. However Muslim participants miserably failed in their responsibility.

Whose fault is this? Who is to blame?

Is it because some vested interests wanting to get close to Defense Secretary invited number of businessmen? Only very few professionals! Respected Muslims such as Refai Hadjiar and Agha Barrie, who were seated next to Gotabaya Rajapaksa, should have ensured a fair representation.

This is the reason why I say that a person like Ananthi Sasitharan needs to be admired. I am not defending or speaking about the rights and wrongs of Ananthi’s politics or political ideology, but her fearlessness in expressing her views.

Here I am talking only about her sincerity and dedication to what she believes is her cause. Her sufferings are known to everyone.  She remains under threat. Her husband’s fate is not known. She has children to look after. Yet she travelled all the way from Jaffna to Colombo from where she travelled to Geneva where she highlighted what she considers as Tamil issues and returned home within days.

On the other hand a section of Muslims were given an opportunity to highlight their problems by Gotabhaya Rajapaksa himself in person, but failed to make use of it.

This is the pathetic plight of the island’s helpless and voiceless Muslim community. Under the circumstances the mood among the Muslims in the island is one of deep frustration.

    Mr. Latheef Farook –

    “Muslim Community Badly Needs a Fearless Voice: Not politicians, wheeler-dealers and businessmen turned sell outs”

    “s it because some vested interests wanting to get close to Defense Secretary invited number of businessmen? Only very few professionals! Respected Muslims such as Refai Hadjiar and Agha Barrie, who were seated next to Gotabaya Rajapaksa, should have ensured a fair representation.”

    Thank you for the summary. Well articulated.

    If the community do not tell the Govt. there is a problem, the Govt. will claim that they were not informed, and had they known it they would have done something about it.

    The upside is that the organizers got the Defense Secretary yo listen to some grievances, not all the grievances. However, it is start. Rome was not built in a day.

    Now get a follow up meeting, and then the next batch of grievances on the table. Even an elephant can be eaten bite by bite.

    Of course, GR, is fully aware of what is happening, and just portending not to know. Who is he fooling?

    Yes, an’ how many times must a man turn his head
    An’ pretend that he just doesn’t see?

    So, Bob Dylan’s, Blown’ in the Wind is an appropriate song to end my comment on the DR, the Defense Secretary’s comments.

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in this sand?
    Yes, an’ how many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they’re forever banned?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
    The answer is blowin’ in the wind

    How many years can a mountain exist
    Before it is washed to the sea?
    Yes, an’ how many years can some people exist
    Before they’re allowed to be free?
    Yes, an’ how many times must a man turn his head
    An’ pretend that he just doesn’t see?

    The answer, my friend, it is blowin’ in the wind
    An’ the answer is blowin’ in the wind

    How many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky?
    Yes, an’ how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    Yes, an’ how many deaths will it take until he knows
    That too many people have died?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
    The answer is blowin’ in the wind

      Mr. Latheef Farook,

      You guys keep your women covered up and don’t allow them in public without being chaperoned by men, and expect to produce an Ananthi Sasitharan?

      Tamil women are free in their society, and so are the Sinhala women, I suppose.

      Kanaki is a famous woman in Tamil history who went to the king get justice for her slain husband: Even the Sinhalese worship her as god.

      It’s time to liberate Muslim women from this Arabic custom from the dark ages.

        You have failed to grasp the essence of the message. Muslims value their women with a lot more respect and will continue to resist denigrating and displaying them as objects of lewdness.

        Hijacking the subject matter is the attitude of losers. No wonder people like you are more damaging to yourself and never see the light of progress.

          “lewdness” What is meant by that.

          Are you a racist trying to say that Tamil and Sinhalese women in the Social and Political activities are lewd?

          Apparently you are from Mecca and you do not have the slightest idea of the example Thiru sighted. She is now the “Pathini Deviyo” to Tamils and Sinhalese. An enslaved, forced for sex only propose woman never can achieve the Pathini Deviyo Status. Is is a voluntary dedication for a person she love. Don’t talk low about our women please.

              I thought at least this time might have had guts to explain what is” radical rascals” before you use it. Unfortunately you missed it again. Let me ask you a question, are in that group too? When a muslim woman come in front of you could she wear a bikini? Have you seed any woman in bikini? What did you then? Went home and took a bath by applying LifeBuoy soap. Don’t preach reculas nonsense please!

              Well! Anyway, he solution to that may not be marrying 40 women at once. Neither packing each one of them in a black color trash bag.

              Because a thief might stole the money you don’t carry your iron safe, to keep your, wherever you go.

              Western countries have less rape problem compared to muslim countries. There,frequently, the angel are asked to come down to earth and gang rape helpless women by headless village heads. That not lewdness. That is,the mother dog eating it’s eye unopened puppies while they cry, without knowing a way to run away from the cruel mother.

              So you feast your lust in private, if so it’s OK, that’s fine.

              Or, you have no lust but only have sex to produce offspring? If so you will have an offspring year after year, is that right?

              Don’t be a hypocrite, tell the truth?

              You feast your visual lust in public, and the real thing at home!

          Maghribi,

          “It’s time to liberate Muslim women from this Arabic custom from the dark ages.” – Thiru

          You (Maghribi) say,

          “You have failed to grasp the essence of the message. Muslims value their women with a lot more respect and will continue to resist denigrating and displaying them as objects of lewdness. “

          1.What is the Problem the Arabs have in Liberating the Women? Is it Tribal? Is it something that was innovated by the Mullah to control the women?

          2. Is it Islam? If So please give the reference in the Quran.

          3. My understanding is that there is no restriction as to the liberation of women. In fact, the Prophets first wife was a women and business women. There was need for the so-called Mahharam . Muhharam or Escort. Prophets’s wife Aisha went to war leading men. There were many women who went to war as support personnel

          4. The Quran requires women to be dressed modestly and to cover their bosom. So, your Arab Tribal Mullah have used the religion as an excuse to get their agenda across. This is not much different than Monk Mahanamma distorting Buddhism with his imaginations. So these are Arab Mullah Imaginations.

          If you have more reference beyond the Quran please provide it.

          Just because one Mullah says so, do not accept it, and restrict the freedom of women. They are human, have rights, and they are persons.

          So what is your religion? Is it Islam? I doubt it. It is Arab Tribalism, that you are trying yo impose on other non-Arab people who have much more advanced and egalitarian cultures.

          Believing in Allah or God does not require you to restrict women’s freedom. It is the Arab tribal culture that requires you to restrict the freedom, by way of the Mullah and Ulema.

          You may provide references from the Quran and Hadith for your Mullah guided point of view.

          By the way, does the Quran require men ti be circumcised? No. For Jews, Yes, in the old testament. Was Prophet Mohamed circumcised? It is understanding No.

          For women to be sexually mutilated in the Quran? No.

              “The problem with some Arab leaders is they try to enforce their tribal customs under the guise of the Islamic Shariah “

              The Arabs do not have an exclusivity here. The Sinhala, The Afghans, The Pakistanis, The Burmese , etc. the Buddhists, the Christians and other do the same.

              It Is called Hegemony. Unfortunately, the women and girls and even boys (child ordination) are paying the price.

        Thiru,

        “Kanaki is a famous woman in Tamil history who went to the king get justice for her slain husband: Even the Sinhalese worship her as god.”

        Do not lose the forest for the trees

        This did not stop the Sinhala Mahanam Buddhists Racists from killing Tamils in 1958, 1983 and finally in a mass murder in 2009.

        Why are there hardly any Tamil Buddhists in Lanka, whereas every Indian state has a few percent non-Monk Mahanams Buddhists.

        So, the presence or absence of Muslim, Muslim women wearing head dress or shots was immaterial. What was material is the Monk Mahanama Sinhala Buddhist Racism.

        In the 5th Century AD, there were no Muslims. That is when Monk Mahanama formulated his Sinhala Buddhist Mahanama Racism.

      Mr. Lateef Afrook,

      Here some credible data and reference of the genetic Admixture. The Native Veddah were the original inhabitants of the land, well before the foreigners, the parades-his, came from South India.

      http://www.lankanewspapers.com/news/2007/6/15923_space.html

      The Genetic affinities of Sri Lankan populations – [Reproduced here on a special request made by our LNP friend MURU, this article (web site) was first found by our friend MAGHA.]
      Friday, 15 June 2007 – 11:25 AM SL Time

      Genetic affinities of Sri Lankan populations
      Human Biology, by Kshatriya, Gautam Kumar

      Genetic Admixture.

      Table 9 presents the estimated values of admixture for the two hybrid populations (the Sinhalese and the Tamils) based on 13 polymorphic loci, fitting a trihybrid model using the ancestral frequencies shown in Table 10. (Tables 9 and 10 omitted)

      The Bengalis, the Tamils, and the Veddahs are considered parental populations for the Sinhalese. The Bengali contribution is 25.41%, the Tamil (India) contribution is 69.86%, and the Veddah contribution is only 4.73%. Thus the Sinhalese have a predominantly Tamil (India) contribution followed by the Bengalis and the Veddahs. The fusion of the Veddahs and the Sinhalese was recorded in the ancient chronicles of Sri Lanka (Dipavamsa and Mahavamsa) as early as 543 B.C., but the Veddahs were subsequently pushed to the inhospitable dry zone for a long period of time under pressure from early colonizers.

      By studying the Sri Lankan Tamils, one can see that the Sinhalese, the Bengalis, and the Indian Tamils can be considered ancestral populations. The contribution of the Sinhalese to the Sri Lankan Tamils is 55.20%. Similarly, the Bengali contribution is 28.17% and that of the Indian Tamils is 16.63%. The results indicate a predominant influence of the Sinhalese (who already have a high contribution from the Indian Tamils) and the Bengalis to a lesser extent.

      In conclusion, the original inhabitants of Sri Lanka were the Veddahs, who have had little admixture with the Sinhalese and possibly none with the Tamils. The Veddahs are distinct because they were confined to inhospitable dry zones and were hardly influenced by the neighboring inhabitants. Furthermore, the Sinhalese and the Sri Lankan Tamils are an admixed population genetically. The Sinhalese, who first came from northwest India under the leadership of Prince Vijaya in 543 B.C., have received and exchanged a substantial amount of their genes with the populations of northeastern and southern India. The Sinhalese and the Tamils have no contribution from the population groups of northwest India. In fact, the contribution made by Prince Vijaya and his small band of 700 companions to the original pool of the Sinhalese must have been eliminated by the long-standing contribution (over 2000 years) of the population groups of northeastern and southern India.

      Furthermore, although there is a noteworthy contribution from the Bengalis (northeast India) to the present-day Sinhalese, the Tamil (South India) contribution predominates. The contribution from the populations of northeast India were diluted, probably because the Indian influence on the Sinhalese after the eighth century A.D. became predominantly South Indian (Raghavan 1964). Thus the Sinhalese of Sri Lanka are genetically more similar to the Tamils of Sri Lanka and India, who were always in close proximity with each other historically, linguistically, geographically, and culturally.

    ‘It appears that Sri Lanka’s beleaguered and besieged Muslim community badly needs a Ananthi Sasitharan and not the spineless politicians, wheeler-dealers, businessmen ,media men and others who turned sell outs.’ This is the best of all you have ever said Latheef; and there is nothing more you could say to instil some self-respect and sense of responsibility in those individuals who claim to represent the community. Of course, it appears that the senior Musthapha, who once earned the respect of the community. is now playing a different role to safeguard the interests of the unworthy junior.

    I agree.

    But for that Muslims must make sacrifices. Ananthi didn’t fall from the sky. She is the product of enormous sacrifices by Tamils. 89,000 Tamil war widows created her.

    Muslims must have at least 89,000 war widows. Then Muslims too can have one. Not otherwise.

      Ever since the time of creation man has struggled to achieve different objectives. The methods have been sometimes peaceful and violent too causing deaths. Struggles: peaceful or violent; have produced heroes, traitors, leaders: honest and dishonest. Ananthi is a result of violent circumstances and the Muslim community too would have ‘Ananthis’ under peaceful cirucumstances; and there need not be Muslim widows for that. Let Ananthi’s struggle be a success for all the women who struggle for their cause both militantly and peacefully.

    “we lawyers do not appear for free”,

    Well known fact. Just ask his son why he has earned himself the label Paisa_Must-Appah. Its a family sickness, this love for money at any cost. They eat, live and sxxt money. If you have the misfortune to go to them for legal help, they first insist on paying up-front, amounts that will make you look up at the sky in askance. And the result? Either long delays and funny excuses or in the case of the son, disconnected phone and mobile calls. Service to the community? Well, the family is their community.

    Latiff Farook, On behalf of Defence Secretary, I would like to answer your questions.
    1. Saudi Funded Tsunami houses in Digawapi[you did not tell where but this is the only place Saudi funded tsunami houses built]. The tsunami victims were lived close to the beach. But these house built about 10 miles away from the beach. It is obvious that there is a conspiracy to give these lands, which belong to Digawapi sacred area to Muslims. The reason is to start muslim colonization.

    2. Land problems in East. Muslims already spread their colonisation upto Pothuvil now. Late minister ashroff spent Ports authority money to buy lands and built houses for Muslims in Pothuvil. He want to extend the colonisation beyond Panama and into the Lahugala area but because of his sudden death it’s stop. Every government land in Pothuvil grab by muslims including almost 34 acres belongs to Muhudu Maha viharaya sacred area. Recently Pothuvil DS issued Land permits to about 2000 muslims, covering jungle area of almost 5000 acres which belong to Forest conservation Dept. The people who received these land permits already own lands in some other areas. The one applicant is a 12 year old boy.Maybe they giving lands permits even to next generation.
    The other example from Kuchchavali in Arisimale. R.M.Anwar a Provincial councillor in Pulmode, trying to give land permits to 9000 applicants whom never lives that area. Before 80’s only about 35 Sinhala families and about 15 muslim families lived there. Now suddenly he said he received 9000 applicants. It is obvious that these applicants from somewhere else and already have lands either in Pulmode or in Nilaweli.

    3.Hate Campaighn. What’s the reason for hate campaighn. Illegal land grab, illeagle trade activities, erceting prayer stations here and there, grab lands in buddhist sacred areas,unethical businesses, recruit poor sinhala girls and pressure them to marry muslims, etc… When muslims stop these actions no more hate campaighn.

    4.Attack of Mosques. Tell me where is the mosque attack by Sinhalese. In Dambulla,Anuradhapura,Modara,Dehiwala some incidents happened but those were not mosques but prayer stations erected in houses,shops or in temporary huts etc.. Why muslims[less than 10% of the total population] need so many prayer stations while ever city in SL have at least one Mosque? And the other thing is muslims need not a mosque or a prayer station to pray. I heard that all muslims want to do is kneel down looking at the Makkama in Saudi Arabia and they can pray.

    5.Animal Slaughter. SL is a buddhist country. Killing cows must stopped. Buddhists as well as Hindus consider cow as a precious animal. They are not asking ban of killing any other animals.

    6.Muslim Dress Code. For the last 50 years we saw muslim women in every street covering their head with part of their saree. Now suddenly the muslims who got the education from Arabic countries wants to change it to Black Dress. This dress code not suitable for our countries. We do not want to see “Goni Billos” on our streets. If it is only confine to their homes it doesn’t matter.

    7.Discrimination of government jobs. There is a ratio how government jobs distribute among Sri Lankans. If you cannot agree you can go to any other country. We are completely against giving jobs to minorities in armed forces. If minorities allow to join armed forces one day they might start the next etnic war in SL.

      Can you tell me where in Buddhism does it say NOT to kill Cows?

      Animals Yes but not specifically cows as far as I am aware but I stand to be corrected.

      Buddhists should NOT eat any animal, lets start with the Mahanayake theros and go down from there !!!

        Robert R. I did not say such a thing. Buddha did not ban eating meats. But Buddha preach, don’t kill animals. But without killing an animal, how can people eat meats. Buddhists treat cows as a precious animal while Hindus treat cows as a sacred animal. So muslims must respect majority decision because they lives in a BuddhisT country. If they want they can import and eat.

            Your ancestor’s brought down here by British Imperialists[because Sinhalese reluctant to work on road construction under British] to work on roads from Malay,Ormus,Yemen,Malakka and Java for 15 year contract in 1820. But British wants demographic change in Ceylon and instead of sending them back, allow them to live here. That’s how your [Edited out] muslims came to our country. It is true that muslims came to Ceylon as traders in 15th centuary and King Senerath in 17th centuary or so settled 400 of them in Eastern Province for their safety[from Portugese]. But most of the muslims brought down here from British rulers. If u want more refer Callbrook commission report.

              You both are honestly “kallathoni”. paain neeme bottuwe Your DNA confirms that you are Sihala speaking south Indian. Only the Germans called themselves Hitlers Aryans- natural blue eyes blonde hair. Not anymore.

              Just Google “All Treaties of London” just check from Henry V111 because his daughter The Virgin Queen, Elizabeth 1 was the first world power. Europe is interlinked in history so the treaties carry from Portuguese period of slavery in India and Ceylon the Dutch VOC and British. The Portuguese weren’t allowed to marry for security reasons so they sent virgin orphans from Portugal to Goa.The Dutch VOC sent couples but the Dutch arrived from the East they had already established a necklace of outpost in the bay of bengal to kanyakumari to patna.

              But I repeat you are kallathoni!

          “Buddha preach, don’t kill animals”

          So, killing human is no problem according to your understanding? Friend stop killing human in Sri Lanka before talk about animal. Even plants have life, may be Load Buddha did not know that.

            Who start killing humans in SL man? It was Prabakaran and his terrorist clan.
            And it was your Prophet’s that preach, kill everybody who follows other religions.

              Noel Jones,

              “Who start killing humans in SL man? It was Prabakaran and his terrorist clan.”

              It was the Sinhala Buddhist Racists who taught how to kill innocent Tamils to VP.

              Remember, 1958 and 1983.

              Remember Somarama who killed SWRD..
              They were ALL Sinhala Mahanama “Buddhist” Racists .

              “Buddhist” because they are NOT Buddhist. They are racists.
              So we had a situation where the Paradeshis. the Para-Sinhala killing Para-Tamil based on Mahanama racism. That is NOT True Buddhism.

              This is what the True Natives, Native Veddas have to say about the Para- Sinhala and other Paras-, the Paradeshis or foreigners.

              1. All the above descriptions support the Sinhala and Tamil as Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil, like Para-deshi, Foreigners, as far a the Native Veddah are concerned, who walked at least 16,000 years ago when Lanka and India were connected by a land bridge as the sea levels were low. So, the Sinhala and Tamil Nationalism need to be identified as, Racism, Para-Sinhala Nationalism and Para-Tamil Nationalism. Monk Mahanama imaginations of Mahawansa need to be exposed and discarded. Why? Non- Confirmation bias of Mahawansa Did Dr. Para-nawithana, the noted Sri Lankan Archaeologist.

              believe, the Imaginations of monk Mahanama of 5th Century such as:

              a) Grandfather of Para-Vijaya was a lion? Any DNA data in support of this imagination?

              b) Buddha visited Lanka three-times in 500 BC? any support for the Imagination.

              c) During one visit, Buddha left his giant footprint on top of Mount Samanala Kanda, “Adams Peak”. Did he fly by the Dandu Monera Yanthraya, Giant Bird, and parachute?

              d) The Veddah are the offspring of Para-Vijaya and Kuveni. Is there any DNA data to support this? No. Another Monk Mahanama Imagination.

              Sri Lanka’s indigenous inhabitants, the Veddas — or Wanniya-laeto (‘forest-dwellers’) as they call themselves — preserve a direct line of descent from the island’s original Neolithic community dating from at least 16,000 BC and probably far earlier according to current scientific opinion.1 Even today, the surviving Wanniya-laeto community retains much of its own distinctive cyclic worldview, prehistoric cultural memory, and time-tested knowledge of their semi-evergreen dry monsoon forest habitat that has enabled their ancestor-revering culture to meet the diverse challenges to their collective identity and survival.

                Amarasiri, Are you a ghost of Native Vedda? Anyway you must first examine your head. Try to consult a good psychologist in your native country.

                  “Amarasiri, Are you a ghost of Native Vedda? Anyway you must first examine your head. Try to consult a good psychologist in your native country. “

                  Noel Jones, Parangi, you are a Parangi in the native Aethho Vedda Country, according Native Veddah terminology.

                  The Monk Mahanam Sinhala “Buddhist” Parangis need to get their heads examined for claiming to be Buddhists, in the land of the Veddahs.

                  Amarasiri’s head is fine, is no ghost, real, and not filled with myths and absurdities of Mahawamsa. and other Myths. It is the Sinhala Mahanama “Buddists”, who need to examine their heads, because they are NOT promoting the Buddha Dhamma as written in the Tiptaka. The Para-Sinhlaa are promoting racism, in the native land of Vedda, that is against the Vedda Culture and value system. The Para-Sinhala need to go back to South India where they came from. Check your DNA wirth the People of South India and Para-Sinhla are the same.

                  In India you can practice the True Dhamma of the Buddha, not the distressed racist Monk Mahanama “Buddhism”.

                  1. Amarasiri is no ghost of Native Vedda. Amarasiri is independent, gives preference to reason, observation and supported facts as opposed to Myths, Revelations and Imaginations.

                  2. Amarasiri is an Egalitarian Agnostic, who wants to sort facts from fiction and imaginations.

                  The religions have great imaginations based on the scribes. It the Middle East is Is Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Zoroastrianism. In India it is Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Others.

                  In Sri Lanka, it is Hinduism ( before Buddhism) and Buddhism, and later Monk Mahanama ” Racist Buddhism” with the Monk Mahanama Imaginations. The German translator of Mahawansa, states that the the writings in Mahawansa are a Tissue of Absurdities.

    You’ve got to laugh! “…..invitees were told in advance by leading lawyer Faisz Mustapha “not to ask any questions which would embarrass the guest”. This is like asking cattle not to struggle when they get to the abattoir. The Muslims are indeed a gullible lot. A few devious buggers (no names, no embarrassment) hijacked this opportunity for their own benefit and the rest were stitched up thinking that they were on the edge of making a breakthrough in getting redress for the Muslim community. Gota went home happy, laughing all the way.

        “…. improved ‘good-boy’ image in the eyes of Gota”

        Yes; That certainly needed some improvement because Dad M and his donkey son tried playing a double game by rushing to cajole and wipe the disgraced ex-CJs tears soon after the impeachment challenge; If the trial went her way the son could then have his feet on both sides of the fence. That way, it was easier to be kingmaker and cut throats like what happened to Thonda.But unfortunately the plan misfired, ex-CJ fell to lick the dust and father and son scooted off rubbing their backsides, wondering if they could ever escape the vengeance of Mara and Gota. Now, they needed the “good boy” image badly. Maybe thats why this “dont do something for nothing” duo decided to use the muslim communitys recent troubles to patch up their own credibility with the brothers in power by organising this “Dont say anything embarrassing” meeting with Gota. Hic, Hic…..

      Holy Quran gives women rights but this is taken away by the likes of latheef Farook. Women were given the right to education in Islam, but until the “despised” Westerners promoted female education in the last century our “learned” Moulavies were against female education. They could not stop the women, now they are quoting various traditions to say Muslim can study. These men are hypocrites, they will talk about women’s rights in public and in private, they will say they do not have rights and better be at home. They will selectively interpret the Quran in such a way to say that women have to listen to men in their family.

    This is a prejudiced article. It secretly trying to tell that Muslims got the better way of taking and getting from “Brother Prince” like GOSL’s gentlemen.

    Other object was to bring a blockade to Anandi’s activities by setting up unwanted focus on her. Let me ask, Is she the only one talks at TNA meetings. Sritharan, Suresh, CV, Sivajilingam, Sampanthar……? She was sent to Geneva to represent only one single group, attend one single object. It was not her decision. It was the decision of NPC. Leave was granted. So she went, attended the job that was assigned to her by the council and came back rightway. When NPC decided on this matter her ability on this was not counted. Rather the fact that she is one of the women whose spouse was kidnapped by Royal Government was the one counted. There no other NPC or Parliament member has the situation that she has. As a political writer Latif Farook must have been ware of the things took place. After that it is not nice to set up against Ananthi.

    Let me ask readers if they know if Latif Farook has written any thing on CT during Asath Sali’s arrest by Prince because the Brahminical Hindu twisted his speech? Why did he not talk here specifically about not inviting Asath Sali as he would performed much better than Ananthi? Junior Ananthi is better than Asath Sali? Does Latif Farook aware of a person named Mano Ganesan who taken out of country by American to save his life. Isn’t he an open talker on the minority issues. Did he read about Wickramabahu when he said nobody can prevent him from going to Geneva and shed some light on the things happening in Sri Lanka. Isn’t it courages, after all NPC is not the one sending him to Geneva.

    Of cause Latif Farook will not be able sight an example of a Muslim woman, because he is talking about dress code for those poor souls, Still couldn’t he remember Sunila Abeysekara? May she he could have talked about Fredika Janz? Obviously this is a cynical article.

    Mr.Farook, please give them a chance. The meeting you refer may be the first between the Defense Secretary and the members of the community. Now that the ice is broken let them continue with the dialogue. Muslims do not embarrass or insult a guest.It appears from your note that you were not present at the meeting yourself. May be what you have written is hearsay, information given by a participant who had his own interests to further.

      Only spineless Muslims need politicians and political parties to steer their lives. Using a Ananthi Sasitharan to describe Muslim leaders is clumsy.

      Muslims are individually capable of achieving their dreams and aspirations if they can invest their existing resources to productivity. As long as Muslims believe to solve their issues in a secular democracy, politicians will take them to the cleaners.

    Doesn’t he know there are great Muslim leaders, highly
    respected and admired by leader of the Middle East, like
    Al Haj A.H.M. Azwer, Abdul Cader Hajiar, Alavi Mowlana and
    Al Haj A.H.M. Fowzie.

    As Thiru point out, there may be many Ananthis covered by

    take up the issues. After all, THEY ARE ONLY there in the

Where is he talking of racism? where is he provoking the community to bombing the twin towers? Where has he spoken about the recent Balu sevana attacks against muslims? He is only highlighting actual facts at a so-called damage-control meeting attended by shady characters posing as mediators. In the process he has highlighted the cunning motives of some despicable muslims who will sell their wives and mothers for paisa (as Dudley mentioned here)and happily say to hell with the community. So, don’t shoot the messenger. His message is loud and clear unless you are born deaf. And Im sure some muslims really are.

    Defense Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa plays INNOCENT and the Muslim Moodoyo swallow the pill. If you know the ABC of politics, people in power and position are very well informed of every minute things happening in a country. They have full time teams to read all the news papers journals local and foreign,full time teams report on what private and foreign electronic media say and have their own secret service in every nook and corner of the country to convey to them what is happening. Otherwise they can not rule. Muslims are Moodoyas Berihani Kanda Yoodayas.

      It must not be forgotten that the author in the article has raised the issue of some selected persons, self-claiming of representing the Muslims, did not raise at the discussions the important issues concerning the community. That truth or untruth of what he has expressed should be verified and dealth with accordingly rather launching a personal attack on Latheef Farook and other non-related issues such as the treatment of Muslim women by Muslim men. Debates on such issues, which are continuing to take place, should done under different circumstances. This is not the opportune time for that. It must be first understood as to why this sudden discussion was mooted on the eve of the Human Rights Commission in Geneva. Is it not to give an impression that the responsible people in the Govt. are receptive to Muslim grievances. This is done when various attacks on Muslim practices have unabatedly taken place over the last three years and not action has been taken by the Govt. This situation has been highlighted in the Report submitted to the UNHRC sessions. So is it not clear that the meeting under issue was time for this. Look at the persons who represented the Muslims. None of them represented any recognised Muslim organisation who would come out and say that everything is alright and the community is safe. Let us discuss issues in their true context without targetting persons who try to enlighten the community of affecting issues and try to understan the truth.

      “These men are hypocrites, they will talk about women’s rights in public and in private, they will say they do not have rights and better be at home.”

      Zareena farook O:-)

      You said it right first time!

      It’s a disgrace the Muslim men cannot cope with their sexual desires.

      By sharia law the men marry so many women yet 60 % of Chinese Massage Parlours European business is from Muslims; they are easily identified by the tip cut.

      The Arab men very aggressive while the Sri Lankan Muslim has been taking everyone for a sucker until the BBS waved in to the scene. You are wise to discuss it at every opportunity because for the whole world is a urinal and they have toys for life.

      Good luck the island is with you and half the problems facing the Muslim’s would be solved if Muslim women take the stage and put the men in place.

      Don’t be mislead by men Look at even the SL men they are no heroes but hiding under saree waiting to be rescued.

    “Participants were told not to ask embarrassing questions.”
    So,what’s news there?Latheef,I had read many of your
    articles on Muslim grievances and and also did comment on
    them but this one is the most time waste I find.You say
    people like Fouzi and Faisz Musthafa organized the meeting
    and again rumble on the outcome!What a joke!Look,I give you
    a clue about our culture,in case you failed or forgot to
    notice.Call a few men on their home phone and tell me how
    many of them answered the phone before knowing it through
    their wives or innocent kids,who’s calling?Wives and kids
    are USED to lie over the phone if the caller is an unwelcome
    character for reasons only known to him.But the question is
    why hide and why USE the family to detect and lie for him?
    And the next thing I want to remind you is that the attack
    on Muslim community interests are not done by any clandestine
    organizations so that it takes time to catch them?RAJAPAKSA
    REGIME want to be SINHALESE among Sinhalese and multicultural
    to north and east.This is what Chandrka did without going to
    much extremes.This what JRJ did to Tamils and also to Muslims
    when he said to M H Mohamed,Hameed and others who raised their
    voice against Israel connection to defeat terrorism,to put up
    or get out!You conveniently forget that in the hope,that a
    UNP or any other will be different?Muslims will have to expand
    their economic activities and consolidate their presence as
    an inevitable part of the economy and you fail it,then you
    lose tiger’s tail!

    Muslims in Sri Lanka have no backbones. Therefore they will suffer in future too.There will never be an Amanthi among Muslims as they have been
    using women only as sexual objects.

      Punchisincho@,
      you are dead right. Many of them the today´s muslim leaders dont send a clear message let alone to their community – take for example the behaviours of Hakeem and Azwer – both act as if they are hallozinated by UPFA leader-MR. Most of the time, both seem to have no constructive arguments about any of the alarming issues (justice, law and order issues) of the people today.

      We may not have the so called back bones- But we are trying to assure that we like the Chelvanayagams and prabakaran will not take the destructive path. What have they achieved all these years. Misery, bloodshed, rape of the country, rape of their women. I think as Muslims, we learnt to live in this country as true patriots, but without giving up our rights. We will argue with dignity and not with bullets.
      Currently things are bad for the Muslims in the country- No dispute on that. But we need to come out with that by negotiations.

        Agree with you as a gentle kind of person.
        But you truly need to remove Azwer, Hakeem or the like people´s representatives if you really expect your leaders to shape up the future of muslim community.

        Every 10 year old would raise, why that Azwer rather supports the president and his allies in the same time neglecting the delieberate harmful attacks to innocient muslims and non buddhists made by govt´s reglious forces (BBS and other religius fanatics)

      If you read the history of Muslims properly you will find that there have been several Ananthis who even sacrificed their lives for the cuase of Islam and Muslims. In recent history, did you know of the Palestinian woman ‘Leila Khaled’ who led the hijacking of the Israeli plane in 1969. May be so far there is no comparable Muslim woman in Sri Lanka. Even the Tamil women were the same; they were just in the background until the Tamil struggle started and the LTTE started recituiting women fighters. So it is certain circumstances that created Tamil women like Ananthi. If Muslims were to face such circumstances, may be, one might find Ananthis among Muslim women too.

    It is not difficult for muslims to find suicide bombers because Quran says if you kill non-believers and do jihad, you get beautiful angles when you go to the god and the number of women you get will be higher than the no of hairs in your face.

    You Muslims cover the bloody head and in some instances their faces of your women for fear of them getting carnal knowledge and go away with men because you Muslims don’t trust your women. While you buggers cover up your women and keep them under veil gyou all letch after other women. That is your [Edited out] Islamic culture which is receiving hammering all over the world. You Muslim men are hypocrats.
