Referring to the recent attacks on religious places, the Muslim Council president, Journalist and media activist NM Ameen, who also applied and was granted Rs. 1,200,000/- of interest free government loan from a state bank to purchase car or van, where the interest will be paid by the Treasury using tax payer money says; “We thank you, your Excellency for your immediate attention and look forward to a complete halt to the threat to the minorities by these extremist groups.”

We publish below the statement in full;

16th January 2014

His Excellency Mahinda Rajapakshe

President,
Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka Presidential Secretariat
Galle Face,
Colombo 1

Your Excellency,

Re: Attacks on places of religious worship of minorities.

We wish to draw your Excellency’s kind attention to the mob attack on Assemblies of God and the Calvary church in Hikkaduwa (Galle District) while the congregation was engaging in peaceful worship services on the 12th of January 2014. The unruly mob led by some Buddhist monks blatantly infringed on the peoples right to worship.

This is not the first incident of this nature and the police who were present could not prevent these elements from causing havoc at a place of religious worship. Certain Buddhist monks, publicly claiming to be the un-official police continue to intimidate the minorities. This has become a growing trend and has gone unchecked.

The Muslim community too has faced many situations of violence, harassment and intimidation by extremist Buddhist groups. Up to now, the police have not made any arrests in any of these incidents.

We kindly urge your Excellency to order the law enforcement agencies to rein-in these mobs that infringe on the peoples fundamental right to worship. Should there be any breach of law by any individual or groups, we kindly urge that due process is followed and necessary legal action is taken without letting individuals or religious groups to take the law in to their own hands.

All Sri Lankans, irrespective of their religious belief’s have high hopes of living a peaceful life in our blessed country after over three decades of conflict. We are confident that under your Excellency’s able leadership, this dream could certainly be a reality.

We thank you, your Excellency for your immediate attention and look forward to a complete halt to the threat to the minorities by these extremist groups.

Yours truly,

N M Ameen

President,
Muslim Council of Sri Lanka

CC: Mr Gotabhaya Rajapakshe
Secretary,
Minister of Defense and Urban Development Colombo 1

    ITN(A semi government Org?) has a Sinhala tele drama that features a story ,portraying Muslim men marrying sinhalese women using polygamy to increase the population , the popular derogatory term among the many others NANA is used freely and a derogatory accent when speaking sinhala is used to add more insult to injury , this is how the Majority is silently programed with a sickness , so what do you expect from a country like this will hold fir the future generations?
    Do you think the people who watch this will ever bother to even search for the truth ,if such a situation really exist? these are people who would believe anything under the sun as long as it is against the Minority, People like desmond de silva unlike The Gypsies , hit the top by singing such
    derogatory songs about Muslims ,but he biggest joke was people who enjoyed such songs sung by this parangiya did not know that he was a little kahate (tea stain)in the milk, then jackson (more popularly known as jackass of rupavahini) used to sing with that watee amma teledram actress the song about the heroism of Kostahpal (Constable) Kothalawela’s raid on nana’s sudu we (nana’s gambling place)with full of sarcasm ,I would like him to sing that now , when gambling is not only legally robbing the livelihood of the poor families ,but may soon determine the country existence in the future- Kothalwela might visit him from his grave to squeeze jacksons — axxxt dxxxke.(what goes around comes around) what many do not know is there are more single mothers among the majority than any other community in this Island i can take anyone on the platter on this and guess why? guess who is taking a permanent second women..

    Muslims have 65 countries.

    If SL is too bad they would be gone to these countries. Small problem, daily suicide bomb attacks in all Muslim countries. They are trying to be born in heaven with 7 Muslim virgins.

    Looks like SL is not so bad.

    Sri Lanka is determined to have state of the art in everything to meet the future ,but intends to handle this with a generation of apu hamies ..

    Can one imagine the what the end result would be with a generation of such backward mind set ? think of the song of Desmond about the villager in the city of colombo in havoc on the streets,, I pity this wonderful island
    which do not have enough Sinhala men and women of class of the past days anymore.. the only thing most of them will want to think is how to do the Monkey see Monkey do of Myanmar in the future with the amount of bigotry being spread by the clergy , Media, Education centres , among doctors, lawyers and the top business circles , people especially the Muslims have no idea the amount of hate that is been spread against them ,I am always extremely grateful to CT -if not for this Journal we would be in total darkness , I wonder for how long this wonderful journal will be available to us , when it has been blocked many times in the past.

    Leave him alone. He has to work hard for the interest free component of his loan granted at the tax payers’ expense. He writes as if he is educating Rajapaksa on these matters as if Rajapaksa is hearing these stories for the first time.Bensen

      Astonishing, what is the wrong with his letter and article he has explained the thinks in diplomatic way….This how we have to deal with a president ,do these gentle man those who commented below are expecting the language of violence and intimidation as how other (peaceful ???) priest are doing….
      He is the citizen of Sri Lanka he has his own right to enjoy the privileges of GOC .But it does not necessarily means that he is representing the government…. I have not seen any wrong on his writing I see it’s a good example of religious harmony….

    Discussions on a matter of public importance should focus on the relevant issues involved which would help even a new participant to understand the issue. If the approach is otherwise it would only mislead all and would serve no useful purpose. In the given issue it has to be understood that ‘the letter is from the Muslim Council of Sri Lanka’ and ‘Ameen has signed it as it’s President’. As far as it is known the letter was drafted by a responsible collective body of the MCSL and, as decided by that body, Ameen has signed the letter as the President of the MCSL and not in his personal capacity as a ‘Journalist’. While the last two paras of the letter certainly are debatable according to ones own thinking, the main contents of the letter has conveyed to the President, as the Head of the State, whether one may like it or not, ‘the seriousness’ of the incidents. Is there anything wrong in the MCSL, a civil Society organisation, which in recent times in the forefront of Muslim affairs, conveying such a message. That is the crux of the matter, but the ‘caption’ of the article is misleading and seems to be intended to ‘launch a personal attack’ on Ameen; perhaps done due to some animosity of the Colombo Telegarph Editor/Editors. While the MCSL, on behalf of the Muslims, is making an effort to engage and take interest on issues concerning other Communities and on wider issues in the country, which efforts were absent within the Muslim civil society upto recent times and is a new development, meaningless attacks of this nature would only drive away those engaging in such efforts. Therefore, it is necessary that criticism, as in all matters, on matters relating to Muslims and Muslim organisation too should be constructive and not be destructive and hope that Colombo Telegraph and others concerned will take this into mind.
