Muslim Council Urges Authorities To Ensure Vigilance On Possible Infiltration Of SL By Terror Groups

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka (MCSL) has called upon the authorities to observe extreme vigilance in order to ensure that Sri Lanka is not infiltrated by any terror group.

gota-and-mahindaReleasing a statement expressing concern over the recent announcement by Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri on the formation of the Indian branch of his global armed group to spread Islamic rue and ‘raise the flag of jihad’ across the subcontinent, MCSL Vice President Hilmy Ahamed has urged the authorities to ensure that every step is taken to thwart any form of infiltration into Sri Lanka by any extremist, religious or ideological groups that spread terror.

In that regard, he has assured that the Muslim community too would ensure vigilance against any possible infiltration into Sri Lanka by Muslim terrorists outside the country.

“The presence of such violent groups shouldn’t be allowed at any cost in Sri Lanka or any of the neighbouring countries,” Ahamed has asserted in the statement pointing out that no space for any form of extremism or terrorism should be allowed in Sri Lanka particularly since we are just covering from the set back and  lost opprotunities following the 30 year long war.

Furthermore, he called upon the President, the Defense Secretary and the government to address Buddhist extremist and hate campaigns that have manifested in the recent past that has turned into a cause of great concern for the minorities in the country.

    Eventually the winners will be the west. Building a big srilankan army is a spending poor people’s money for nothing, idiots game. As every one knows the army was struggling with LTTE(occupied only a tiny place in north) and begged for help from so many countries, how it will manage external terrorism. All this stupid work is to wipe out tamils and Muslimes from srilanka. Again i lile to remind the same thing i wrote earlier, greedy for a small dry land in the north and loosing whole furtile srilankan land. There is no end to this singhalese modagama(foolishness. Old singhala story,to save a clay pot vethamahathia chopped the goat’s head. Why singhalese schools never teach these stories now-sorry majority supports of MR & CO never entered a school even for a shelter during a rainy day.

    Reflect Blame.

    Right you are with your far sighted intellect and ability to foresee things.Muslim Council of Sri Lanka had a hand in Al-Qaeda Twin Tower Attack, British 7/7 Attack, All attacks in Iraq, Syria and all of Middle East, not to mention the Bombay Attacks, Bali Attacks and the list goes on and on.

    So they are acting pro active before the big attack in Sri Lanka.

    You are bloody right. (OHOMA YANG, MODAYA)

    FYI, it is you and your Masters Swindler MARA and Murderer GORA who are reflecting blame for the sorry state of life you self seeking wolves have given to the poor masses of the country by igniting communal violence for your survival and to continue the plunder of our beautiful country. The curse will definitely strike you or if you fellows escape, it will surely reach your children. Await till then.

    I really feel sorry for your off springs, who will have to pay the price, for your crimes against humanity.

    You should work with your own community to ensure that pockets of extremism and fanaticism which are starting to blossom are neutralised immediately .
    We are all Sri Lankans , and should not try to identify ourselves by the religions we practice.

    Way to go Muslim Council.

    But we do have a problem of another kind brewing in our own vackyard. It is the growth of Shiite doctrine and extreme forms of Wahabism which is going to cause chaos to our country’s Muslim moderates. They are both radicalised and extreme forms of Islam.

    Okay, I understand if you say that every form and everyone need to be accomodated and no one should feel left out, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of splitting the community along sectarian lines. This phenomena should never be allowed to escalate to dangerous levels of destabilization, as is now occuring in Iraq and Syria.

    It is now common knowledge that in both those countries, the Shiites and Sunni communities are at each other’s throats, even after many long and peaceful years of integration, inter marriage and co-existence. This is where IS could get a hold to exploit the situation.

    More than external influences like marauding Buddhist monks, the tinderbox could to be on the inside where it could flare up from within the community, if this potential hazard is not addressed now. Even external influences like what is happening outside in those other countries, could take its toll in our country as well. Certainly if not now, may be in the future as these negative influences develop to much greater levels. We need to recognize, accept and address these issues now, before it is too late, by nipping it in the bud permanently.

    Iran is developing close ties with the government offering oil, money and aid in a big way, and definitely the government will turn a blind eye to their antics of offering scholarships to our Ulama’s to study in Iran, and setting up libraries to promote their messed up ideology and understanding of Islam. Although shiites are only 15 percent of world Muslim population, they already stake their claims in almost all of the ME countries, and are now spreading their tentacles to all of the other poor and vulnerable countries.

      Do you mean to say that your own ideology, understanding & “brand” of Islam and probably those of other Sri Lankan Muslims, do not have radicals and extremists in other parts of the world? Is it really a concern for you that these other “brands” would create havoc locally or is it that you do not want the other “brands” to challenge your “brand?

        If you are in touch with reality you can see who are the radicals pushing for the break-up of Iraq and Syria. It is s serious conflict within the Ummath (Muslim population) which needs to be stopped from spreading further. The developping situation must be brought out into the open and dialog started for everyone to express their opinions and come to a concensus, if we are to sit tight and do nothing and let the situation take its own course, or lay down the rules that traditionally Sri Lankan Moors are of Shafi sect, and that Shiite influence is foreign and not welcome. If you have any idea what that doctrine entails, you will understand how damaging it is to the beliefs of the Sunni Muslims of the Shafi sect.

        “between how can u ask others to look into spreading wahabism and islamic extremism?”

        Let Gota bring in Hezbollah, Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Bibi’s IDF to rollback Wahhabism from this island.

        Perhaps the People’s Liberation Army could do a thorough job as it did in Tibet and Xinjiang Autonomous Provonce.

    It is wise and positive stand taken by the Sri Lanka Muslim Council in recent times, to condemn the activities of Muslim terrorist and extremist groups the world over and also the call on the Indonesian Govt. to protect Borobudur from possible terrorist. It is acts like this that will revive the trust and integrity of the Muslims of Sri Lanka in the eyes of the local non-muslims and to counter BBS mischief.

    Looks like the dirty Harrys of the West are giving all types of Muslims, the good, the bad and the ugly all the necessary arms to fight with each other to finish. Insha’Allah. Good Luck.

      I am no muslim Avtar

      “..types of Muslims, the good, the bad and the ugly all the necessary arms to fight with each other “

      The bad and Ugly have been fighting the good for a long time, even before the West. The West simply aided and abetted it.

      The Good Muslims: The original Muslims, who followed Islam during the height of the Islamic olden age. They were the philosophers the Scientists and the Astronomers.

      The Bad Muslims, the Ulema and the theologians, were those who fought the Philosophers the Scientists and the Astronomers, in order to maintain their hegemony, and claimed Revelation is superior to reason and observation.

      The Ugly “Muslims”, or rather the Ugly Satans are those who follow the Devil, Satan, the Wahhabis and their clones, Salafis, Tauhidi, Deobsndis, Talibans, ISIS etc.

      It is fight between the Good vs. the Bad, the Devil, Satan.

    The God the Old Testament, the God of Moses, was big on creating terror. From The Book of Numbers, Chapter 31 of the Christian Bible (Life Application Bible, New International Version published by Zondervan House owned by Rupert Murdoch’s empire):

    “The Lord said to Moses, ‘Take vengeance on the Midianites for the Israelites. After that you will be gathered to your people.’
    “So Moses said to the poeple, ‘Arm some of your men to go to war against the Midianites and to carry out the Lord’s vengeance on them…
    They fought against Midian, as the Lord commanded Moses and killed every man. Among their victims were Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba – the five kings of Midian. They also killed Balaam son of Beor with the sword. The Israelites captured the Midianite women and children and took all the Midianite herds, flocks and goods as plunder. They burned all the towns where the Midianites had settled, as well as all their camps. They took all the plunder and spoils to Moses and Eleazer the priest and the Israelite assembly at their camp on the plains of Moab, by the Jordan across from Jericho.
    “Moses, Eleazer the priest and all the leaders of the community went to meet them outside the camp. Moses was angry with the officers of the army – the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds – who returned from the battle.
    ” ‘ Have you allowed all the women to live?’ he asked them. ‘They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and were the means of turning the Israelites away from the Lord in what happened at Peor, so that a plague struck the Lord’s people. Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.’ “

    Moses is regarded as a prophet by Islam, Christianity and Judaism but here he is engaging in genocide of the Midianites in God’s name.

    Good move by the Muslim Council. Sri Lankan Islam can remain a peaceful, tolerant religion if the Council’s advice is followed.
