Muslim Council Challenges BBS Gnanasara Over Funding Allegations

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has today challenged the Bodu Bala Sena to prove that the Muslim Council has received any financial support from USA or any other.

Gnanasara

Gnanasara

Writing to BBS Secretary Galagoda Atte Gnanasara the Muslim Council said; If you have any evidence, please place them before us or produce them to the relevant authorities. It is unethical to target individual members of the Muslim Council and their families to gain media attention for your nefarious causes, which is destroying the immense respect Sri Lanka has, as a Buddhist nation.”

“You continue to make accusations against individuals and organizations, hiding yourself behind the sacred robe, which is respected by all Sri Lankans.” they said.

We publish below the statement in full;

Rev. Galagode Aththe Gnanasara Thero

Secretary General, Bodu Bala Sena Kirulapone
Sri Lanka

Rev. Gnanasara Thero,

I wish to bring to your attention that the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has had no engagement or receive financial support from the Embassy of the United States or any agency affiliated to the United States of America or any other country as stated by you at the your press conference of April 22nd 2014. I wish to remind you that the Bodu Bala Sena remains charged for receiving financial support from Norway through Mr Arne Fjortoft and your Chief Executive Officer, Mr Dilanthe Withanage, which you have not denied.

The Muslim Council operates through voluntary contributions of its own members in Sri Lanka and its steering committee. I challenge you to prove that the Muslim Council has received any financial support from USA or any other. If you have any evidence, please place them before us or produce them to the relevant authorities. It is unethical to target individual members of the Muslim Council and their families to gain media attention for your nefarious causes, which is destroying the immense respect Sri Lanka has, as a Buddhist nation.

You continue to make accusations against individuals and organizations, hiding yourself behind the sacred robe, which is respected by all Sri Lankans.

The hate campaign spearheaded by you and other Buddhist priests against minority communities is contrary to the principles espoused by the noble Gautama Buddha and Buddhism.

Your continued accusations against Islam and Muslims are destroying the image of Buddhism and the peace and harmony that has existed between our communities for centuries.

As you are aware the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka represent Muslim Civil Society across the country. It is our desire to discuss and solve any issues that confront by discussion amongst us. Please feel free to contact me, should you have any queries about the Muslim Council or any other issue you may have with the Muslim community.

Yours sincerely

N M Ameen

President,
The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka

    It is high time someone challenges this thug hiding behind the most sacred yellow robe of Buddhism. He must be brought before a criminal court for insulting Buddhism and undermining the wishes of patriotic Sri Lankans.

      The Muslim Council ,

      “The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka has today challenged the Bodu Bala Sena to prove that the Muslim Council has received any financial support from USA or any other.”

      While this is a good question to ask, the Most Important Question to ask is who is

      FUNDING and Promoting BBS, Booru Balu Sena?

      1. The Norwegians?

      2. The Christians from USA?

      3. The West?

      4. Sri Lanka Defense ministry

      5. Others? Who are they?

      In any vase, the native Veddah wants all the pars, Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils, Para-Muslims, Other Paras and para-Norwegians to leave the land pf native Veddah alone and get back to South India, India and other places they hailed from, as shown by the DNA in their bodies.

        The Muslim Council should take the BBS Balu Sena to court and challenge them there instead of writing vacuous letters..

        The fact is that the Muslim leaders are a cowardly and shameless lot running behind and supporting Jarapassa whose dirty work is done by Balu Sena!

        Majority of Muslims only speak up for their self interest and have no interest in the well being of wide society and other minorities, including their own women..

          Taking bbs to court in sl is waste of time and money. Everyone in sl know that bbs is above law like the goons clan. The muslim congress is aware of it and thats why they have chosen the path of least expensive to publish their view.

          Yes Man You are correct.. Muslims are such idiots they only think about them selves. Anyway where BBS receives funding is not the problem of Muslims in Sri Lanka. This is a Sinhala Buddhist country and Muslims have nothing to do with Sinhalese and Buddhist affairs.

          I mean you Muslims just stay as slaves for us or get lost. We are creating a pure Sinhala Buddhist country. we are ready to live in harmony with other religions and ethnicities except Islam.

        The Muslim Council,

        Take BBS on their statement and get a UN Representative etc. examine BBS. Some already claim that BBS is a Terrorist organization.

        Now it looks like Norway and Israel are funding them.

        CT. Please do not delete the Sinhala paragraph.

        “ඊශ‍්‍රායල් මූල්‍ය ගනු දෙනු නෝර්වේ හරහා ද සිදුවන බව දැන් බොහෝ තැන් වල සාකච්ඡුා වන අතර, ඒවා නොයෙකුත් රටවල මුස්ලිම් විරෝධී සංවිධාන වෙනුවෙන් යොමු කෙරෙන බවත් බෙහෙවින් සාකච්ඡුා වන මාතෘකාවකි. ඒ අතර, ඉකුත් ඉරිදා ‘‘ද සන්ඩෙ ලීඩ’’ පුවත් පතට බොදු බල සේනා ගැන අදහස් දැක්වූ දිලන්ත විතානගේ ගෙන් ඔවුන්ට අරමුදල් ලැබෙන්නේ කොහෙන්දැයි ඇසූ ප‍්‍රශ්නයට ඔහුගේ පිළිතුර වූයේ, ‘‘ඇතැමුන් කියන්නේ අපට මුදල් ලැබෙන්නේ ඊශ‍්‍රායලයෙන් කියලා. ඒ සියල්ල බොරු. ගැටළුවක් හෝ ප‍්‍රශ්නයක් තියෙන ඕනෑම කෙනෙකුට ඇවිල්ලා බලන්න පූළුවන්. අපේ කටයුතු ඉතා විවෘතයි.’’ යන්නය. ඇත්ත ගැටළුව වන්නේ එළෙස ගොසින් පරීක්ෂා කිරීමට, ඔවුන්ගේ හික්මීම හා විනය ගැන විශ්වාසයක් ඇති ස්වාධීන පුද්ගලයෙකු සොයා ගැනීම ය.”

        Israels primary transactions are carried out through Norway is being discussed at many places, these are used in many countries against Muslims is a subject that is being discussed. In the meantime, the Sunday Leader gave opinions on BBS from Dilantha Witahnage, when asked about from where they get the funds, he said ” some say we get the finds from Israel. It is a lie. If somebody has a query or question, anybody can come and look at it. Our activities are open. The truth and problem is finding an independent and trustworthy examiner or observer.

            Para-I am no muslim , Jim Softy, Lorenzo and Avatars,

            The Original Sinhala paragraph was cited as a reference so that anybody can check the information, Amarasiri Paditaya got hold of, and correct the English translation, if there are errors in the Approximate Translation.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citation

            Why don’t you do a better translation.

            Broadly, a citation is a reference to a published or unpublished source (not always the original source). More precisely, a citation is an abbreviated alphanumeric expression embedded in the body of an intellectual work that denotes an entry in the bibliographic references section of the work for the purpose of acknowledging the relevance of the works of others to the topic of discussion at the spot where the citation appears. Generally the combination of both the in-body citation and the bibliographic entry constitutes what is commonly thought of as a citation (whereas bibliographic entries by themselves are not). References to single, machine-readable assertions in electronic scientific articles are known as nanopublications, a form of microattribution.

            Citation has several important purposes: to uphold intellectual honesty (or avoiding plagiarism),[1] to attribute prior or unoriginal work and ideas to the correct sources, to allow the reader to determine independently whether the referenced material supports the author’s argument in the claimed way, and to help the reader gauge the strength and validity of the material the author has used.[2]

          If the authorities are intact – the law is equal to all and sundry (as the uththamayawahanse, repeats in his speeches regardless of where he would be), nothing like the situation would have been arisen. This alone shows the incapblity, biaseness of the the ruling police or any other relevent authorities that are entitled to do the job, in the current adminstration. Why cant CID take this to their hand if they really want to find solutions for the like minded problems ?

          In Europe, at Alkaida and their actitives were at its heights, few years ago, the days they the authorities chased for info related to Bin laden or the group, police were alert on every tiny bit of news. It is all police and the intelligence authorities worked together. Why is that lanken authorities – seem to have not making any genuine efforts towrads the BBS activities. Regardless of ethnic backgrounds, srilankens in general would not like BBS to function as an unarmed police, got to see few days ago. Why the saffron robed men shoudl react while laymen stay indifferent ? Where has the respect towards the sanga gone ? Is this all because of Monks´ own UNREST similar to what the lanken youth across the country depicted in late 80ties ?
          Last night there was a ” WADA PITIYA” telecasted by Derana sender, to that even, Ghanasara called and took their valuable time. Ghanasara, behaves as if he is above the law. Why should he be given power to BE SUPER HUMAN/SRILANKEN ? His aggressions should be tamed by psychotherapies. Word set he is used to should be criticsed by srilanken senior authorities that work for protection of langauge and culture. Why do they all stay as if they have no guts to react ?

            There is an Institution for people like Ghanesara. already. It is called ANGODA. Somebody needs to pit him on Bus 134 next time he runs amok among the people in the City of Colombo.

      Para Gnanasara Thero,

      We all know based on the DNA in your body, you descended from South India, just like the all the other paras, Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamil and Para-Muslims ( mostly).

      Looking at you even, physically you cannot be distinguished from para-Tamils of Lanka, and Tamils of South India. You can conform your origins by submitting your DNA samples to :

      https://genographic.nationalgeographic.com/

      Since its launch in 2005, National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Now, cutting-edge technology is enabling us to shine a powerful new light on our collective past. By participating in the latest phase of this real-time scientific project, you can learn more about yourself than you ever thought possible. You will also help support the Genographic Legacy Fund, which works to conserve and revitalize indigenous cultures around the world.

      Who funded BBS? Why? They wanted to destabilize the SL Govt. and drive a wedge between the SL State and the Muslim Countries Supporting the SL State? Were they pissed off that their Agents LTTE failed in Elam?

      1. The Norwegians?
      2. The Christian Americans
      3. The West
      4. The LTTE Diaspora, GTF?

      how can this work, if alleged war criminals are bieng not investigated, so what talks about these skinn head men hidden in their red saress telling something palatable taming the gaping nation, while doing all kind of unethical acts with the approval of a bunch of thieves elected by the very same stupid folks. I am ashamed to introduce myself as sinhalaya today, I know many among us woudl feel like that.

          There is a rumour going round that ‘The Buddha’ was born in Sri Lanka.

          Would the people who believe this, please clarify whether they mean the ‘Gautama Buddha’ who we believe was born in Lumbini, or another ‘Buddha’ who they believe was born in Sri Lanka.

          They seem to be unaware that there could be many who attain Arahantship or even Buddhahood if they practise diligently enough!

            “There is a rumour going round that ‘The Buddha’ was born in Sri Lanka.”

            That rumor and other versions of it were first spread by Monk Mahanama and his copycats with their tissues of imaginations.

            Monk Mahanama claimed many things, in his imaginations, but did not claim Buddha was born in the land of the Native Vedda.

    Gnanasara is not only an insult to the Buddhist robe but to the president and the country. No wonder the west is trying to hunt down our war heroes and charge them for war crimes. When brutes like this are allowed to destroy Sri Lanka’s image, who can prevent the west achieving its objective.

    It is us, who should disrobe him, not the Muslims

      Did NOT you hear Mahanayakes asking GhanasaraAG lately ” do something against prevailing situation”. Meaning Mahanayake is living in a different world where he cant see the danger of the skind headed Ghanasara (not a lanken monk representative by any means).
      Our people dont take things serious until everything destructively reach them. That is their nature, looters in power right at the moment, abuse that mentality to consolidate their political power across every corners of the country.

        The mahanayake was explicit in his request to Gnanasara to initiate a regime change because they have lost hope in the president or it may have been his style of destroying the Gnansara insult to Buddhism. It is strange that after the meeting with the Mahanayake, BBS drops the hunt for Ven. Wataraka Vijitha thero or was it an order from the President. We will see how things unfold in the coming years

        In the meantime the Muslim Gnanasara, Asath Sally has gone and complained to the new religious police about Gnanasara. I am sure Gnanasara will go tomorrow and complain about Asath. We can enjoy the new drama

            maintained throughout that I’m a Muslim against
            injustice,discrimination,violence,terror,racism
            and all vice against humanity beyond colour,race
            language,class or religion.Humanity is the motto.

              I am glad to hear that you’re a Muslim against injustices. My problem is Koran has so many verses that attack non-Muslims and you Muslims believe such words come from Allah (God).

              Have you ever read the Koran and Hadith without a Mullah watching you? I have. I found only very few Koran verses that promote democracy or golden rule or universal justice. Most of it tells Muslims how to tax, subjugate, harass and kill non-Muslims. Whenever we point them out, Mullah and Muslim scholars tells us to read it in context. But I couldn’t find Koran telling what is written in it is valid only in context and not valid for the future. Can you?

                Your concern was,you didn’t find anyone writing here
                in Muslim name and you got an answer and now you
                raise a different one that can not be explained in
                few words because it is about one of the major
                religions that ruled and changed some parts of the
                world according to its teachings.A Muslim man spends
                nearly eight years to become a Muslim clergy and
                spends more time to become a scholar in the subject.
                If you look for what you want in the Koran, you get
                it,no doubt but the Koran is more than what you are
                looking for in it.To prove your point about Koran
                and its followers,you should also prove other world
                laws are guilt free and especially killing free.And
                please remember Muslims didn’t fly to Hiroshima
                because there are verses of killing in Koran.But
                Americans or democracy don’t say anywhere that people
                will be killed in millions and people get killed
                without stop in the name of good governance!

                  whywhy,
                  You didn’t get my point: Koran tells Muslims that believers are a brotherhood and non-believers are not their equals. Koran compares non-believers to animals. Koran also urge Muslims to treat non-Muslims unjustly and even kill them. I asked you a simple question about the validity of it for today in a humble way. Instead of answering it, you talked about defects of the American democracy.

                  For one thing, democracy hadn’t come from the creator God. Indeed it is hard to reconcile principles of democracy and the words of the creator God. True, different people have different understanding of democracy. But everyone wants to improve democracy to the betterment of all living beings. The word of God however is fixed and cannot be changed. And that’s the problem.

                  I never condoned American crime of dropping the Atomic bombs on Japan or massacres in Mai Lai and other cities in Vietnam, or atrocities committed in Iraq and Afghanistan or drone attacks on civilians in Pakistan or underhand arming of the terrorists in Libya or British bombing of Germany’s Dresden after the surrender and etc.

                  You can talk about Mullah’s lengthy training and even commitment to Allah. The fact that Mullah is totally brainwashed is beside the point to me. I’d like to talk about the racist and bigoted words that came through Muhammad’s mouth as the word of God that Mullahs try to justify.

                    I got your point and my answer was short that
                    explained my position.When I said the length
                    of time one spends to study Islam,I meant to
                    explain that only by random reading one can not
                    grasp the full knowledge of it.Hiroshima was
                    just one example to prove only one point you
                    raised and that was of killings.Of course you
                    can continue asking more and more and more
                    without stop and I will go on answering each and
                    every question as much as I can until you or me
                    get tired.But I know one thing,there are always
                    more questions than answers because the world is
                    not perfect in anything.If you go down just about
                    five posts further,you should find some clue of
                    my position on religions.Now,back to one of your
                    main complain about equality of man kind in Islam,
                    I give you this verse from the Koran.”O man kind
                    indeed we have created you from male and female
                    and made you peoples and tribes that you may know
                    one another.Indeed most noble of you in the sight
                    of Allah is,the most righteous of you.”(Koran49:13)
                    If you read “The Middle East” by Bernard Lewis,you
                    will get more knowledge on the subject by a world
                    known expert who described Islam as not only a
                    religion but also a culture,civilization and
                    politics.
                    In the last sermon,prophet Muhammad said”All mankind
                    is from Adam and Eve,an Arab has no superiority over
                    non-Arab,nor a non-Arab has superiority over an Arab;
                    also a white has no superiority over a black and a
                    black has no superiority over a white,except by
                    piety and good action.Learn that every Muslim is a
                    brother to every other Muslim and that Muslims
                    constitute one brotherhood.Nothing shall be
                    legitimate to a Muslim which belongs to a fellow
                    Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly.
                    Do no t therefore do injustice to yourselves.”
                    This is I think the whole part of the statement that
                    you have clearly,knowingly or otherwise,taken out
                    of context which has become a fashion for some,
                    these days.It is superbly possible for any one to
                    pick up only what’s interesting for him and edit it,
                    in other words,twist and distort to make a new
                    product.I hope you are not one of them.

        Mahanayakas to raise this issue ” please at least you Ghanasara do something” , he has lost the trust kept on GOVT AUTHORITIES AND Srilanken police to this day – this is an alarming siutation. Never ever in the history, Mahanayaks came with this kind of issues, even the civil war at its heights, Mahanayakes did not beg “bbs or any other segments”, that are seen as violent by all nature to react…

        either Mahanayakes have no knowledge about the reality of BBS or they reallly want BBS to convince the state that there is a great demand in the society today, if police fails others to react to go against.

      As a leader Vasudeva had the courage to call a ban on the
      BBS.JVP also took a firm stand against the on going mad,
      minority Muslim and Christian hate terror by Buddhist
      labelled,well tolerated yellow robed extremists.I fully
      agree with you that the Buddhists themselves are the ones
      who should punish the perpetrators and show the world and
      the affected parties that their name won’t be allowed to
      be abused by unpatriotic elements in the name of
      patriotism or any other “isms.”

    BBS should not be invited for any kind of discussion by
    any of Muslim organizations.All we got to do is,report
    their illegal actions against Muslim community to relevant
    authorities.If BBS or anybody else has anything against
    the Muslims,let them do the same against us.There’s simply
    nothing for Muslims to engage with a group or gang born
    with the sole intention of starting,building up and then
    harming Muslim cultural,religious and economic values.
    You can study Muslim public opinion in the recently
    concluded PC elections.You don’t need to teach or remind
    Buddhism to Buddhist clergy even if they violate it.
    You know very well the fact that Satan knows Allah better
    than anybody else.That is the case here to be applied.
    Day in day out all religions are being exposed by the
    internet revolution and don’t forget that Srilankans
    internet users have rocketed to two millions.Already
    number of temples and monks are coming down and the
    Buddhist devotees are frustrated of their once highly held
    reverence towards the monks,because of heir unholy clergy
    lifestyle.This is not 1915 to incite people so easily,
    and against a community that’s more and more integrating
    with the rest of the country.Unless you play the card with
    your head held high,you won’t get anywhere with these
    trouble makers.We have seen you enough, bending like Beckam
    but not hitting like him.

      Good point.

      BBS does nor represent Sinhala Buddhists.

      Only the Mahanayakas of the Nikayas represent the Sinhala Buddhists.

      Therefore ignore BBS.

    There are rumors floating that the President has met with the Galaboda Gonsara Thero in private and provided his support to Balu Bala Sena. If our President is a honest broker of peace he should have brought the Sura Council Members and BBS members together and sorted out the dispute, not just meet one group at a time. This is a cowardly act and Treason for setting up one against the other.

      Nonsense in Buddhism (reincarnation and rebirth)

      Uploaded on Apr 10, 2009
      The extreme foolishness of Buddhist practitioners has gone largely under the radar in recent times, since Buddhists are not seen to be as much of a physical threat as other religious crazy people. But it’s time for Buddhists to be held to account.

    Why is the Muslim Council and the Shura council going on the defensive? If these organizations are serious about the welfare of the Muslims or any other minority they represent, this council should be going on the offensive against these BBS-TERRORISTS who are supported and funded by the Government of Sri Lanka. Matter of fact, the US State Department has very courageously come forward with military, law enforcement and logistic assistance in response to pressure from several Islamic and Middle Eastern civil liberties organizations that are now blaming the US government’s inaction against social injustice that is happening here. TRAC, an independent watch dog is one organization that very correctly black listed the BBS not only as a terrorist organization but also as “Buddhist terror group” that make Buddhists like myself ashamed of our heritage. All this as a result of a few misguided “THIRISANNU” that identify themselves as Buddhists.

    Muslims should launch Jihad against this anti-Islamic person and his BBS.

    That is the right thing by the Quran.

    SL Muslims are actually Hindus who only call out to Allah (PBUH). Islamic doctrines are not practiced in SL.

    That is why the Muslim community is at a loss to understand what to do next.

      This is how it was checked through Greese Yaka. And earlier when Hela Urumaya said there was Jihad in the east during the 2010 General election. Likewise the Geneva Beeshanaya and the separation of the country launched since the end of the war ini 2009 ended with the Southern and Western PC elections held on March 29, 2014.

      Now something new should be discovered like the revival of LTTE in the north might be a good thing to deceive the Kevun Kanna Yoda people in the mother lanka. MOther lanka has suffered enough under the communal minded opportunistic busines rivals since 1915 and since 1956.

      Ordinary sinhalese reprimand even the thugerish style private bus crew saying they cannot tolerate the sound of a Tamil song in a Private bus. Just imagine then how about the fate of innocent Tamils and Muslims who face the agony of language problem in the Police stations and the government offices.

    TRAC has already classified his club,BBS, as Terrorist Organisation. Thus he is a terrorist. Addressing him with words like Rev, Thero is belittling those words. Therefore I encourage everyone to call him TERRORIST. And he must be eliminated like Prabharan.

    Time someone stood up to these terrorists and confronted them about the lies and bigoted statements they keep making. If anyone is in the payroll of foreign entities it is the BBS. They were allowed to enter the US and Norway without difficulty, so really, the question should be asked of them. They have got away with all the BS, and ignorant remarks, and no one seems to confront them, therefore they keep going on, without fear or shame.

    It is good to hear that desire of Muslim Council is to ‘discuss and solve any issues that confront by discussion amongst us. It is also a good thing that ‘Muslim council’ has written that Sri Lanka is a “Buddhist nation” and reminding us (Buddhists) the need to respect “the principles espoused by the noble Gautama Buddha and Buddhism.” If all the Muslims (Wahabis, Salafis and other Muslim extremists) accept that, half the problem between Sinhalas and Muslims is over.

    Reading the comments by Muslims (with Sinhala names [permitted under taqiyya and kitman?] here), there appears one problem. Muslim ‘Koran’ tells its followers that unbelievers are not equal to Muslims. And Allah doesn’t allow non-Muslims to triumph over the Muslims. (Koran 45:21 & 4:141) And what does that means? Does it not mean, Muslims can never be loyal to the government of “Buddhist Nation”?

    Those who know the in and out of the BBS version of Buddhism and the country’s political system will know why all these hulla bulloo by the BBS monks.

    If a person who knows the value the human being the democratic values and the importance of religion will know that the BBS is gropping in the dark in a very irresponsible manner to created hatred against Muslims in a calculated way with ulterior motive

    I take this opportunity to reproduce a news report from the Island of 29.04.2014 I presume which will help the law abiding people to know the official version about Wilpattu.

    As of now Sri Lanka is heading towards a country where all its affairs are decided on a communal basis. The interim and immediate culmination of these impunity has proved that:

    Sri Lanka has two types of citizenry. First class for majority people which is not to be seen under any other democracy

    A section of the Buddhist Monks with the tacit supports of the rulers are above the Law.

    Wilpattu dispute: Presidential Task Force allocated lands for Muslims – Mannar DS

    * Sinhalese (2.6 percent) given 378 acres after clearing scrub jungle
    April 28, 2014, 9:28 pm

    by Zacki Jabbar recently at the Wilpattu National Park Border

    Mannar Divisional Secretary S. Keetheswaran, refuting allegations by the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) that Muslim families driven out of the Musali Pradeshiya Sabha Division by the LTTE in 1990, had recently encroached on the Wilpattu National Park, said that it was a Presidential Task Force (PTF) Committee established in terms of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) that had identified the location for their resettlement.

    Unnecessary tension and conflict could have been avoided, if an attempt had been made to examine the Survey Department Plans and the decisions taken by the PTF Committee headed by the Secretary to the Ministry of Resettlement, to identify land for Internally Displaced Persons, in terms of the LLRC’s recommendations, Keetheswaran said, pointing out that the Committee’s deliberations had been endorsed by representatives of the Land Commission, the Forest Department, the Wildlife Department, Survey Department, the Army, the Navy, the Central Environmental Authority, the Agriculture and Land Ministry, the Government Agent and the respective Divisional Secretaries. “We had several rounds of discussions and undertook two field visits prior to recommending on January 2, 2013 that the Muslims who were evicted from the Musali Pradeshiya Division in Mannar by the LTTE be allocated land on the following basis – Marichchikkatti (100 acres), Palaikuli (100 acres) and Karadikkuli (80 acres).”

    The Divisional Secretary said that the population in Musali Division in 1990 comprised Muslims (84 percent) Tamils (13.4 percent) and Sinhalese (2.6 percent). When state lands were alienated in 1995 the original Muslim inhabitants evicted in 1990 were living temporarily in various parts of the country including in camps in Puttalam.

    In Mullikulam around 700 acres of land were taken over by the Navy for security purposes. Those who lived in Mullikulam were relocated in Kayakkuli village. In order to resettle the Sinhalese comprising 2.6 percent of the total number evicted in 1984 and their natural increase, 378 acres had been allocated after clearing the scrub forest that had grown, he observed.

    However, 73 families from Marikkarthevu Marichchikkatti who were not accommodated had put up temporary huts about one kilometre away from the Wilpattu National Park border, Keetheswaran pointed out. “We, visited them on April 4, 2014 and assured alternative land. I can certify that no part of the Wilpattu National Park has been used for any resettlement scheme including the Jasmine City Housing Project which is in fact situated in the Marichchikatti Grama Niladari Division.”

    Gnanasara given immunity and protection by all means by the brother secretary to defence Gotabya, who escalates in full swing the ethnic tension to create another infamous Black July, this time towards Muslims.
    MaRa Regime wants to reciprocate the Muslims in Sri Lanka for voting in favour of Sri Lanka or abstain from voting in Geneva by attacking Mosques, Muslim Businesses and Properties.
    The Regime has absolutely NO OTHER OPTION to divert the foolish masses of Singhalese from poverty, inflation, corruption, health, education, intimidation, abduction, press freedom, war crimes, Geneva, white vans, final stage of war, LLRC and genocide, etc or otherwise expect the consequences Hitler, Mussolini, Ghadafi faced….
    Hitler came to power Aryan Race is the best and had no option to withdraw his claims to avoid a world war and ultimately his death. MaRa through BBS goons and thugs like Gnanasara is doing the same.

    Can any Muslim deny that they have not received any kind financial aid from Gadaffi of Libya and Hussain of Iraq. Didn’t they buy the coastal areas with such finance down South Sri Lanka before the Tsunami. How are they going to account for almost half the total of deaths due to Tsunami. Moreover, what is the link the Pakistanis and Bangladeshis have through Sri Lanka Muslims. How many of them are in possession of Sri Lanka National Identity Cards. How is that a Pakistani who has travelled from Sri Lanka, was arrested in connection with the Chennai Railway Station bombing? Who is funding the Islamic Organization at Kathankudy – Wahabbism from Egypt. There are many more instances.
