Muslim Grievances Need To Be Heard, Identified And Redressed Properly: Muslim Congress

Today, almost five years after the end of the war, the wounds of the Muslim community await due recognition and redress, says the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress.

M.T. Hasen Ali MP

M.T. Hasen Ali MP

Issuing a statement, its Secretary-General M.T. Hasen Ali MP said today; “Justice has eluded the victims of massacres, thousands of Muslim families remain in IDP camps and many are unable to reclaim their lost assets, including ancestral lands and places of worship. Since the war, in my electorate alone, thousands of acres of land were expropriated by government agencies. Equally worrying is the fact that, in 2013 there were hundreds of attacks against Muslims, many of them violent.”

We publish below the statement in full;

The Muslim community has always strived to live in harmony with all communities in the island. For many generations, the community has produced many loyal citizens, who have served the nation with honour, dedication and a spirit of self-sacrifice. However, the 30 year internal armed conflict in Sri Lanka deeply affected the Muslim community – approximately 20,000 Muslims were massacred, tens of thousands were evicted from their homes overnight and assets worth billions were expropriated.

Today, almost five years after the end of the war, the wounds of the Muslim community await due recognition and redress.  Justice has eluded the victims of massacres, thousands of Muslim families remain in IDP camps and many are unable to reclaim their lost assets, including ancestral lands and places of worship. Since the war, in my electorate alone, thousands of acres of land were expropriated by government agencies. Equally worrying is the fact that, in 2013 there were hundreds of attacks against Muslims, many of them violent.

It is a matter of grave concern and regret, that even today, these victims seem all but forgotten. The precise extent and impact of the tremendous losses and continuing prejudice to the community remain unknown, as no systematic, objective official inquiries have been conducted to date. For example, even today, no one knows with any reasonable degree of certainty, how many Muslims died or went missing during the war. Existing government efforts are not fit for this purpose: it is impossible to conduct an accurate assessment of the dead and disappeared in one month – especially as many of the deaths occurred in remote border villages over two decades ago.

It is clear that the nature and extent of the particular grievances of the Muslim community need to be heard, identified, and redressed properly. This requires a special mechanism that is credible, independent and empowered in dealing with these forgotten grievances. Therefore, we call upon the Government to set up such a special mechanism forthwith, to specifically inquire into the grievances suffered by Muslims, so that proper steps may be taken to grant relief to the affected Muslim citizenry.

          I agree with your challenging idiots who don’t read but just comment.
          Aren’t Lankans living the Silver tongue of Asia SWRD dream??
          Aren’t the Brits living the great economist Gordon Brown dream??
          Aren’t the Lankans living the great law parasite GL Peiris dream??
          They all needed the opportunity without which they would have been nobody.

            Native,
            Stupid Sihala and Tamil always mention that LKY wanted to imitate Ceylon. That his what he told the laymen.
            But he lectured the professional that he wanted Singapore to be like Tokaido(Cities in Transformation World City Prize) and in the 70’s he came with another book on city planning where he mentions it too.
            Chinese are known as dirty dirty by clean toilet Japanese (and Dutch) who were the first to make aircraft carriers in the world- the 7 th fleet is docked there. Both China and India have one each of refurbished aircraft carriers and China is making 4 more but these take years like the 5th generation India/Russia stealth would be out 2020 and superior to US which had it in 2005. The Indian 4th generation Tejas was out last Dec and could be used to bomb north and south Lanka to bring peace to the peace loving folk.

      Don’t just claim, prove your points man. I emphasize, there is no Epistemological value at all for Islam.

      Muslims all over the world were a pathetic misguided lot by a mythical view point and doing a great harm to the humankind and world based on that disbelief. All their behaviour is based on this myth.

      I stand by my statement. Is anybody dare to challenge it?

      I may be a bigot, but I cannot respect untruth.

    Hey!, Anton, by showing the flaws of others you cannot prove your religion is true. It is totally a wrong approach. Talk about your religion and show its colours. Prove the points in it. Prove its events in it. Prove the doctrines in it. Prove justify the principles in Islam. Justify its philosophy. Insulting others proves nothing but your perverted mentality nurtured may be by your incorrect worldview, which definitely is a bad point for your religious belief, buddy. Come with your arm forward, don’t throw them every direction without an aim. You have a companion, That so called “Muslim Native Vedda”. Come along with him. Will see the truth!

    Yapa -apa- what you think is flawless is a belief today mixed with 100% superstitions , Hindu mythology, devil dance , fake soothsaying , black magic , worshiping the penis of siva and the Virgin of parwathie , worshiping the kali , saraswathie and the whole lot and while attacking and destroying the places of worships of others and hurting their feeling ,you go around erecting statues of the “Buddha” which he never sanctioned ,which can never profit you in anything ,you spend hundreds of thousands in these statues while there are hundreds of thousands hungry and some dying with terminal illness and can not afford even their monthly medications , then there are hundreds of thousand homeless ,without addressing their desperate needs what do your leaders do? your priests live in super luxury and indulge in politics to promote and spread racism and hate , without collectively as a community of a religion that teaches peace and respect to others helping your own kind , what most of you guys engage in is hate , racism , and always being a cry baby blaming others for your failures and filled with jealousy and envy of the other faiths .

    When The christian go around reaching out to the homeless , hungry ,sick and helpless ,you accuse them of unethical conversion ,it is not so, it is because people realize that the christian has understood the real need of the human suffering that they without wasting their blessing on monuments they use to to address the real suffering of the people , like hell your faith has no flaws , JHU member is robbing the poor of the little they have to run for elections only to try and suppress the minorities in the western province ,if he is really a sincere leader he must go and live with poor ,hungry ,homeless Sinhalese Buddhist in the interior villages, sharing their suffering and helping them , you hypocrites go and get a life you losers

      Anton;

      Have you brought any point against me here?

      1. Did you prove Islam is not a mythical religion?

      2. Did you prove that Muslim population growth rate in Sri Lanka is not 4 times as Tamils and 2 times as Sinhalese and this trend is not a threat to the peace and harmony of this country? What are your suggestions to avoid this situation?

      3. Practices by Buddhists in Sri Lanka are not totally free from the influences of others religions. You will never be able to find a “pure religion” practiced by anybody in the world. However, flaws of these practices have nothing to do with Buddhism. If you want to show that Buddhism is mythical as Islam, you will have to prove it with its doctrines and philosophy. Can you do it? Islam is a total myth from its core. Can you deny it?

      Thanks!

    I am in agreement that Muslim grievances should be heard.
    Unfortunately for this to happen you need genuine Muslim leaders and not the type of politicians you see today.
    The challenge to the Muslim community is it put forward a few genuine leaders and not who will not look after themselves.

      As a Muslim I fully endorse every word. The SLMC has no right to speak for Muslims. They are a bunch of hypocrites,as can be seen by their contesting as SLMC while still remaining in the government. They. are opportunists, and will jump
      onto the other side as they have been doing after The Rajapakses came to power

        Of course, the Others, Christians and Muslims have their Myths too,but they are less problematic for peace in Sri Lanka.

      yapa,

      I understand what you are saying, make the case for the Sinhala Buddhist Chuvanism, but the facts are twisted by Monk Mahanama in the Mahawansa, like the grandfather of Vijaya being a Lion (No lion genes), Buddha was in Lanka in 500 BC, three times, and he set his foot on Samanal Kanda ( Adams Peak) myths. Did he travel by the Dandu Monera Ysantraya and Parachute? Most is based on Myth.

      Even if the other tribes that were there when the Para-Vijaya arrived, except the Native Veddahs, were there, it does not mean that they were the original natives. It simply means that the four tribes were there when Para-Vijaya arrived from Kalinga.

      It is more likely they, the four tribes, arrived from South India, Tamil Nadu, much, much later than the Native Veddahs. So, Amarasiri’s Hypothesis and Theory is that ONLY the Native Veddah have the right and credibility to call all others Para and Parangi. That includes the four tribes, Naga, Yakka etc. and the Kalingas. the Orissans and the Bengalis and Tamils.

      That includes the four tribes, and the Kalingas and their mixtures thereof. If you call the mixture sinhala, still they are para- amd therefore Para-Sinhala, based on Native Veddaj Terminology of the Aetto.

      Mahawansa and Monk Mahanama has no credibility. You need DNA molecular Biology data proof. Remember the Balangoda man, along with many others left East Africa, about 65,000 years ago. When you check the DNA of Sinhala and Tamil. there is very little difference.

      Who was Ravana? Was it Myth? Was he Hindu?

      Read the write up by Ms. Shamini Serasingha, and the 900 responses it generated.
