Muslim Hate Campaign In Sri Lanka

By Ameer Ali

Dr. Ameer Ali

Dr. Ameer Ali

The incendiary attack on ‘Nolimit’, a Muslim owned and the foremost textile retail business outlet at Panadura in the Western Province of Sri Lanka is yet the latest in a series of premeditated and meticulously planned anti-Muslim vicious campaign led by the most extremist Buddhist group Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) which, according to all available information and evidence, carries the unflinching support of some powerful members in the ruling Rajapakse regime.

This anti-Muslim campaign is part of a more elaborate project conspiratorially planned and collaboratively executed by the supremacist BBS and its coterie like the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) with support from the Buddhist petty bourgeoisie to transform Sri Lanka into a nation of Sinhalese Buddhists and Buddhists only with some limited tolerance to other communities provided they are prepared to live on unequal terms. There is a close parallel here with the State of Israel which also claims that Israel belongs to Jews and Jews only but the Arabs are allowed to exist, if they wish, but on apartheid terms. Just as the Jews claim that their language Hebrew is spoken nowhere else except in Israel and that therefore it should be the only state language so also is the claim of the supremacists that Sinhalese is spoken only in Sri Lanka and that it should be the only state language.  Just as the Jewish hardliners have indoctrinated their views and ideology to the security forces of the country so also are the Buddhist hardliners have indoctrinated theirs to the police force and soldiers in the island, the vast majority of them are Buddhists. Finally, like the Israeli Jews, the Buddhist supremacists also, by hiring their comprador intellectuals and historians are venturing to establish their dubious claims on the basis of a politically abused history, concocted legends, and twisted logics. If BBS, JHU and their sympathisers are allowed to succeed in their project of Buddhisization of Sri Lanka the country would become a semi-apartheid regime in the not too distant future.

The current Muslim hate campaign by BBS & Co. is the latest chapter of two previously unleashed anti-other undertakings by their predecessors, first against the Catholics and then against the Tamils both of which are still continuing. The Catholics were targeted because of their religious evangelism, extra-territorial allegiance to the Vatican and an alleged disproportionate hold on domestic economy and professions. The Tamils were targeted partly because of an imagined existential threat to the Sinhalese nation arising from events buried in ancient history but mostly because of Tamil dominance over higher education and professional services in the country. The standardisation of the University Entrance Examination marks by the SLFP Government in the 1970s and the burning of the iconic Jaffna Library in 1981 by a rampaging Sinhala Buddhist army were deliberate attempts to deprive the Tamils of any opportunity to continue their dominance over higher education and professionalism. The Tamils of course resorted to a foolhardy military solution which ended not only in losing the war but also most of what they had achieved politically over several decades. From a powerful political force to be reckoned with by any Sri Lankan government the Tamil community after 2009 has been reduced to a marginal element in a triumphalist Buddhist-Military-Presidential political complex.

In its chauvinist dream of religious homogenization of Sri Lanka the BBS & Co. has turned its wrath and rage on the Muslims who have been the most submissive and law abiding minority throughout their existence in the island for over a millennium. They never aspired for an independent state nor did they carry any extra-territorial political allegiance to any country or nation.  Even after incurring heavy losses in the 1915 Sinhalese-Muslim riots the community never tried to migrate anywhere but became even more attached to the local soil. When the Sinhalese-Tamil ethnic divide became more virulent and bloody after 1983 the Muslims always aligned with the Sinhalese and paid a heavy price for that allegiance at the hands of the LTTE. If so why is this community being targeted now?

In the calculations of BBS & Co. the Muslim community is alleged to be posing a demographic, religious, security and economic threat to Buddhist supremacy in the island. The demographic threat is manufactured from a simplistic comparison of statistics provided in the census reports of 1981 and 2011. They show that while the Sinhalese population has increased from 73.9% to 74.9% and that of Tamils have declined from 12.7% to 11.2% Muslim population has increased from 7% to 9% and hence the danger of Sri Lanka becoming a Muslim country. The most important element in this demographic change namely migration has been completely ignored. Between the two censuses hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese and Tamils have left the country permanently in search of greener pastures while the Muslims, for various reasons, have found themselves unable to do so. The total number of Sri Lankan Muslims living in the English speaking countries of UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand  does not exceed 30,000 whereas each of the other two communities have settlements of hundreds of thousands. There is also anther allegation that Muslim population in certain localities like Dehiwela has overtaken the Sinhalese population.  During the civil war years because of the anti-Muslim policy of the LTTE Muslims from the north and east were forced to evacuate and they came and settled in Colombo and its suburbs. This means there were two simultaneous trends, a rise in their number in some localities and fall in others.

The religious threat is supposed to arise from the activities of Muslim missionary groups such as the Tabligh and Tawhid Jamaats. There are two issues here, one of conversion and the other of overt religiosity.  BBS & Co. is worried about a few Buddhists converting to Islam but do they also know that there are Muslims running away from Islam and living with Buddhists, Christians and Hindus? Who is doing the counting? In an open religious market there must be freedom of and from religion. Overt religiosity is a worldwide phenomenon and not confined to Muslims alone. What about the Christians in America, Hindus in India and Buddhists in Burma. Haven’t they become overtly religious over the last few decades? It is a revolt against a secular but unjust World Order ruled by corporate capitalism. It is natural that ordinary people seek solace in the supernatural when they find themselves incapable of seeking rational solution to their adversities.  Muslims do eat halal meat, but how does that affect non-meat eating Buddhists? True, there are certain religious practices that irritate other communities but that calls for inter-faith dialogue, self-introspection and reforms and not for incendiarism, destruction and slaughter.

Security threat is said to be coming from the presence of Muslim terrorist groups linked to Al-Qaeda. No one so far has produced a single shred of evidence to prove this. Finally, the economic threat is assumed to emanate through Muslim businessmen’s fraudulent tactics of buying and selling. Here again, apart from the fabricated accusations and malicious propaganda by the warriors of BBS & Co. no credible evidence has been produced either by the government or by serious researchers to prove their veracity. On the contrary evidence show that Muslim establishments like Nolimit and Fashionbug are prompt in fulfilling their tax obligations, providing employment to thousands of non-Muslims and are winning customer attachment in spite of all bureaucratic repression and racist propaganda.

What is certain though is the freedom these supremacists enjoy to attack, burn and destroy places of worship, businesses and properties belonging to Muslims often in the presence of law enforcers.  The intention of this unruly mob is clear. It wants to destroy the plural makeup of the Sri Lankan society and polity and reduce and marginalize the influence of ethnic minorities. Indeed this was the very reason behind the Jayewardena constitution which introduced the executive presidential system in 1977.

The destruction of Nolimit and before that the attack on Fashionbug, destruction of a Muslim owned pharmacy store in Dehiwela, setting fire to a Muslim chicken and goat farm and a shirt factory in the South and many more in other areas, all indicate a systematic effort to destroy the Muslim economy. The Sinhalese petty bourgeoisie is unfortunately in cahoot with this malicious mob.  The silent majority is either too afraid to confront this crowd or is hoping that the turbulence will go away eventually. The government is in a state of denial and Muslim politicians, for various reasons, are powerless to act decisively to make any difference. It was reported in the media that when a politician visited Alutgama after the mayhem an old Muslim woman asked him “Where is Prabakaran?”, an emotional outburst by a victim but has deep implications. Like the Tamils, Muslims are also now forced to look to the international community for redress.

        Elakolla is test tube born.
        So how can he has ever an appachchi? He is twisted by all means not being able to see the truth on his paternity related issues. Instead of getting that cleared through DNA tests, he has been making wrong efforts adding his kind of idiosyncratic hatreds being against muslims or others… to this valuable forum..
        Today or later he has to give priority to his origin search… most likely Rajapakshes or Mervins would come to question – when Elakolla would ever do DNA tests.
        Some time ago, I heard Mervin silva saying that he abused thousands of women in his younger age and may have produced uncoutnable numbers, uknown to him thorough such activities. Among them, there could also be journalists specially that write against him and his regime. So he even searched forgive from them.. not being able to have given compensation for those women for the bring ups of those sons… I believe, Elakolla should be one of them… that is for sure.

    Come on!!! This guy is a [Edited out]

    Let’s take all his points to account…..Just tell me [Edited out]….WHAT MADE THE SINHALA RACISTS to attack in 1915? Isn’t it the evil philosophy of Anagarika (spooky faced vampire looking) Buddhist-Bulshit leader who called on the Sinhalese to attack the minorities with his evil teachings gained from Blavatsky & Olcott in those era? Your arguments are invalid.

    Sinhala racists are working singly on only ONE GOAL set by Evil Anagarika, then Soma, and now MAHINDA. Gnanasara is a pawn of Mahinda and Gnaney is a leader of a hit squad.

    Blavatsky is a evil lady who made Hitler a mass murderer with her evil writings in “The Secret Doctrine”?
    Olcott established evil school systems like Ananda College where mass murderers are produced in abundance. Almost all the racists belonging to the Sinhala Buddhist evil are produced and nurtured here.

    Check here: for more details…

    http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com/column.php?id=217588

    The evils of Blavatsky has been entrusted then to Anagarika, DS, SWRD…..and so on. Its evil is still functioning with a blazing fire in the hearts of all men who believes in it. Champika Ranawaka is such an evil one the Modern Sinhala Racists are following.

    TAKE MY WORD AMEER FOLLY….the Muslims or Hindus or Christians have got nothing to do with this….its purely an Occult Project which is running its course to a total destruction of the Sinhala State and their Race. LET THEM HAVE IT!!!!

      See this sinhalies idiot….

      Most Singhala people are like frogs in a well. They don’t know WHO is at fault in Iraq, Afghanistan, Europe, USA, etc. and SL. It is the same group that is at fault everywhere.

      Some of them think BBS is killing people in Iraq!!

      Hey Modaya, if you call Anagarika Dharmapala Vampire looking, what about Muhamad, who killed hundreds of Jews, raped women and raped even 9 year old. It is a known fact that Muhamad is a Psychopathic schizophrenic who couldn’t even read or write and died a pathetic death. He copied almost everything from Judaism including Pork, Friday prayers etc. Am I wrong jelly face? You want few other things that I can quote from Koran?

        Don’t believe what we have to say about you and your hora oru trip to the island but what the first Europeans have the Jewish people to say and it matters because they run the media and money world over.
        (The Cochin Jews settled in the Kingdom of Cochin in South India,[4] now part of the state of Kerala. P. M. Jussay wrote that it was believed that the earliest Jews in India were sailors from King Solomon’s time.[12] It has been claimed that following the destruction of the First Temple in the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BC, some Jewish exiles came to India.)

        Here is what they say about you and your idea as On CT : It was proved time and again that Israelis have no special feelings for Sri Lanka which they consider “as an undeveloped and uncivilised country with monkeylike people who are not long out of the trees and should not expect much” as disclosed in the book “By Way of Deception; The Making and Unmaking of a Mossad Officer” by Victor Ostrovsky and Claire Hoy

    If not he is stupid. Sri Lanka was over 99% buddhist country for millennia. There was no need to Buddhisization.

    It is Muslim who are engaged in Islamization of the world.

    Everybody knows how muslims buy lands and expand their territory. Even some muslims say that.

      The “99% buddhist country for millennia”, as such surely does not need defending by your rascal friends specially when you cant show evidence or motive for Muslims to upset it.
      Why cant false prophets like you and your hypocrite friends don’t realize what you did was absolutely against the Buddhism;

      1) killed 4 people and injured 80+ (panatipata veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – injuring or killing any living thing

      2) Looted and stole lorry loads with state sponsorship (adinnadana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – theft or taking that which is not given

      3) Listen and enjoyed pervasive speech filled with twisted sexual innuendo (kamesu michchhachara veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – immoral sensual enjoyment

      4) Lies upon lies upon lies that most people who know cant even believe that you can say so many lies and get away with it in this day and age (musavada veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami) – false speech or lying

      5) Listen to MP Thewarapperuma who has sworn in parliament that the intoxicated rioters included even robed monks (sura-meraya-majja-pamada-tthana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami). – intoxication as tending to becloud and weaken the mind.

      SHAME ON YOU! Instead of regurgitating the hate and racism here, at least spend your free time learning about Buddhism before you and your crew destroy what is left of it. Maybe you might have a slim chance of attaining nibbana.

        Judaism is not an expansionist religion. On the other hand, ISlam is a political religion and, it is objective is world domination. Islam’s objective is expansion all over the world and get rid muslim who does not believe the majority muslims as well eliminate the other religions.

        SO if Jews are fighting to protect their culture and existence is it wrong ?

        It is very common that thrill – seeking people get into peaceful protests and spoil things. It happens every where in the world.

        If you try to dominate on what a handful this, then your people have a problem with Sinhala – buddhists.

        Vibhushana is definitely hurt from this. That is why he is Pi44ed off.

      What a confused individual. At least the Muslims are buying lands, not like the Jews in Israel, who STEALS disputed lands to expand their colonies. They use every excuse in the book to keep stealing more and more land, to ethnically cleanse the indigenous Arabs who lived there before. These crimes are condemned by the entire world, including the UN, and even their supporters, the US. Only idiots would think that the Muslims will take over this country, when statistically it will never happen. Try to make more intelligent comments that will contribute to the debate instead of inane attacks on Muslims.

    Now we must say that you may have got some wrong information or you are misleading your great Leaders like Rauf Hakeem, A.H.M Azwar, Ela Fouzi, Fizar Mustafa, Batiuddin etc. etc. Regarding “No Limit” fire. Our Ranaviru Police has already established that the fire was due to “Electrical Fault” or if not with a cigarette butt. You people also must believe findings of our Police as we, Pure Sinhala Buddhists, believe suspects killed while searching hidden Arms or stories of using minimum power by the Police. After all there is no difference between “No Fire Zone” and “No Limit Fire”

    Again you are accusing of links between BBS and some powerful members in the ruling Rajapakse regime. We know that you are referring to our great war Hero Hon. Gota because even our Hon.President is not so powerful these days. He has answered your question. ref. http://www.dailymirror.lk/top-story/49090-if proven-i-will resign-gota.html. I am sure he will resign if you prove but proving is a different case now a days as our Police and Independent Judiciary are very tough. Please don’t forget that we have lot of Kangatta’s among us.

    Under the pressure from your people US State Dept. has cancelled the Visas of Chaiman, Galagoda Gandasara and C.E.O, Dilantha Vithanage BBS(pvt) ltd. Now we have the Information that there is a division in the Obhama’s Govt. over the Issue and they are afraid about the reaction from BBS(Pvt)Ltd. Mr. Dilantha Vithanage, C.E.O of BBS(Pvt) ltd has already called written explanation from American Embassy for cancelling their Visas. Now Obhama administration afraid that Galagoda Gandasara and other Sri Lanka kind of Patriots will Storm pentagon and storm their Embassies in other Countries like they storm Ministries in Sri Lanka.

    Also Mr. Ali you should be happy that Hon. President has visited Aluthgama and Dharga Town 2 times in two weeks to see the destruction and there were news that he was having formal chat with Muslim People. In this case it is up to you to decide whether you should apply the theory in Crime science that Criminal used to visit Crime scene over and over due to his guilty conscience.

      First time he visited a Kachcheri and Kachcheri was not
      a place that came under attack.Victims and the damaged
      properties were ignored in the first visit.Second visit
      is to claim credit for his half generosity of repairs.
      Originally the property damage is estimated at Rs 400
      million and the offered help was Rs 200 million.And the
      govt so far didn’t condemn the attack.Never came the
      word sorry from the govt side,police or all
      compassionate Buddhist religious body.The word sorry is
      still confined to the west and only the express ways
      computers,Tvs,skyscrapers,mobile phones and fashion wares
      are the ones revolutionizing and civilizing the country.
      What a pathetic situation?The country has not changed
      from inside,it’s all whitewashing the walls.

    It is time for the Muslims to extend a hand of friendship to the Tamils and see what the two communities could do together to protect their interests! The two communities should seek greater devolution of political power so that they can live and prosper in their own domains. Tamils generally are more tolerant of the Muslims as could be seen in Tamilnadu and other southern states of India. An ultimate solution for both communities maybe opting to make the North East the 30th province of India.

      Extending the hand of friendship does not mean joining in the folly of trying to divide this beautiful country (again). The Muslims and Tamils of Sri Lanka are better off with the regime in Colombo than that of Delhi. I don’t think Sri Lanka will give up its sovereignty easily. That’s not to say that there shouldn’t be devolution of power to the cities and regions of the north and east, of course.

    It would have been prudent for Dr. Ali to have confined his paper to be within the ambit of the BBS Vs. the Muslims of Sri Lanka especially in the context of international developments. Bensen

    Dr Ali,
    Police announced that Nolimit fire was due to faulty electrical wire.
    Chapter is closed. Even Justice Minister agreed with it as he is still with Govt.
    Do not talk about closed cases.

      Yes really, in rajapaksa land buildings set fire to themselves, Buddhist monks assault themselves, and Muslims kill themselves in Mosques. You sound so smart when you close the chapter just like that, like closing of one’s mind.

      Chapter not closed.Muslim leaderships are widening.
      Emerging temporary leaderships include,Mangala
      Samaraweera,Palitha Thevarapperuma,Rajitha Senaretne,
      R Sampanthan,Sumanthiran and even inevitable Ranil
      (latest number).So Mangala Samaraweera said the fire
      was arson and Muslims will go with that even if the
      victim himself agreed it was electricity, because,
      although the property belonged to No Limit,the attack
      was to Muslims and Islam and the political parties
      targeted include UNP,TNA and Democracy.

    Dr. Ameer Ali

    “This anti-Muslim campaign is part of a more elaborate project conspiratorially planned and collaboratively executed by the supremacist BBS and its coterie like the Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) with support from the Buddhist petty bourgeoisie to transform Sri Lanka into a nation of Sinhalese Buddhists and Buddhists only with some limited tolerance to other communities provided they are prepared to live on unequal terms. “

    All need to expose the Para-Sinhala from South India as shown by the DNA in their bodies, expose the lies of Para-monk Mahanama , and the Para-Buddhism that was imported.

    Print and post the Poster by Amarasiri that exposes the Paras from South India.

    The Para-Sinhala Buddhists need to understand that they are Paras from South India in the Land od Native Veddah, as proven by the DNA in their bodies.

    As Shaymon Jayasingha says: “In the light of KM De Silva’s historical scholarship the JHU and other Sinhala ethnic- nationalists should rethink Sri Lankan history. They will then realize to their surprise that the real Sihala Urumaya was defined by amicable relations with minority groups. We have to pick up on that tradition and ripen it if we are to survive-let alone to grow and develop. We simply have to learn to live side by side with others who are only superficially different. The alternative is none other than self-destruction. That is the Hobson’s Choice for Sinhala- Buddhist nationalists. Taken in the right spirit that can be a delightful choice that would enrich our nation”

    Para Sinhala actions in the Land of Native Veddah, by those who believe in the lies and Imaginations of Para-Monk Mahanama. Para= Para-deshi , Foreigner The Paras came from South India, Check their DNA. No lion Genes. Just myths.

    The Genetic affinities of Sri Lankan populations 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.

    your article is a very clear presentation (like your lectures those days)of the existing situation. you can see how people are responding. i think you cannot make it more clear. muslim scholars in SL should take the challenges and meet all the foolish and even childish arguments but forward against muslims (economic domination, population increase, conversion etc). you know in SL the practice is to deny everything (like no limit)and then put the blame on muslims to say that it was they who did it to claim insurance etc. another ploy is to say that they are minor incidents or ‘natural reaction of the majority for increase in their (muslim)population’ (jr style). do you according to another version jaffna library was burnt by the tamils.

    What happened in Aluthgama is not something to be proud of, We need to learn to look at things in relation to what’s happening in the world, especially after evidenced emerged (confirmed by the Interpol) that Thaaliban are already operating in Sri Lanka.

    Though the writer is fairly accurate on the historical part of the essay, he too fall into the usual misty, dark jungle on the interpretation of the events.

    First I want to mention his superficial comparison of the events that are above the surface and equaling the Jews and Sinhalese. He finds him success of making Sinhalese as Jew only after the Aluthgama. That is poor perspective. Jews are treated as Western Pariahs in western countries. They have their own problem. Whoever built the new Israel is gone from Germany and around after World War II affected that area. UN has to take responsibility of making the Israel in dis-satisfactory manner to all and leaving the Israeli Jews in peculiar behaviors. But, out of Israel, It is Jews companies are one mostly employs Indian, Pakistani and Middle East Muslims. There is still racism in European races owned companies employing all other minorities, including Muslims. Further, even after offering any many proves, Sinhalese are not Jews. Sinhalese are Dravidian. By nature they cannot hold on to rituals and standards. They are far away from Aryan race Jews on that. The unscrupulous, mischievous political leaders are extremely successful in taking the country to Anarchy, but it is not right to show the mass has been already moved to Buddhist extremism. The problem with Sinhalese is the Modaya (Swing element). This has virtually rendered the other minorities not being able to live with Sinhalese. They must go alone, the Sinhalese are not going to rise against the controlling Modaya element and bring an Arab Spring in Sri Lanka. This was so clearly demonstrated during the firing of CJ Shiranee Bandaranayake. CJ is the symbol of Justice in a Democratic frame work. The educated, the political elites, the religious prelates et al had a duty to come to the road and protest to that destruction to the justice, during that time. But up to the opposition leader Ranil scared to oppose government on that, because government was successfully able to connect the dismissal to a bogus claim, that Shiranee was trying to support Tamils by opposing the law that were against 13A. The Pretoria government in South Africa and the current Israeli government, though they oppose in all the way they want to do for the opponents races, they never really hurt the democracy of their own race. In Sri Lanka, the Tamils are destroyed. But instead of it increase the holds of the Sinhalese in the power, the defeat of Prabhakaran has rubbed a lot of the Sinhalese hold on the government. But, if the Muslims are wiped out of Israel, this is not will be the result. Many Israeli may start to see that they are enjoying more say on their government.

    The same way, BBS is not the source of anti-Muslim initiation. Contrary to the popular conceptions, Rather than BBS, sole proprietor of these anti-Muslims pogroms are only from the Royal government. With all other bed time stories, I remember my mother telling me once how the hunters shoot tiger in the jungle. When they go to jungle in the daytime to set up shooting arrangement, they would take a Scare Crow with them. They place some noise think on it. The tiger lurking around in the jungle in the daytime will notice the new noisy intruder. Then they secure themselves and put a meat piece little away from the scare crow, around the evening time. They shoot the tiger while it eats the meat. When the tiger eats the meats, its attention will be on the noisy scare Crow. This how they make sure that the tiger will not to focus on them right after the shooting. So, when arrow hit the tiger, instead of looking for the hunter, it will go righter to Scare crow and tear it off. Hunters will finish the game with the rest of the arrows and go back home safely.

    We watched from outside 3 years ago Mano Ganesan’s warning to Muslims leaders about the impending attacks about to take on unspecified Muslims target. I am pretty sure Muslim leaders must have had other warnings even before that. But the BBS is active out there only for two years. But Muslims leaders rubbed aside those warning and went to Geneva to witness in favor of government. Even two years ago, Muslims leaders gave up the First Minister post offered SLMC; they join the UPFA for no benefits at all. It was few months before the election the Dambulla Mosque was destroyed by government hooligans,(not by BBS) and as a solution to the destruction, Prime Minister ordered to remove the Mosque from there.

    So blaming BBS and staying in the government holding the Royal feet tightly and then comparing Sinhalese to Jews just because they both attack Muslims are very immature analysis. During the war time, with a word of that they are with government and not with the Tamils; they went for the skin and bones. Now, after the war, they have to stay in that level or get out of the government start agitation for equal treatment. Having both ways is only a dream.

      Moiez, You don’t have to say that as we see and hear it everyday. They kill women, children sick and old with bombs around the world, that is how gutless Muslims are. Can’t fight face to face but in hiding like Muhamad who killed how many hundreds Moiez? Killing was his hobby and majority Muslims around the world, that is why out of the 23 wars at present Muslims are involved in all. That is why Muslims are killing Muslims otherwise Muhamad and Allah will be disappointed.

        Your clan is no different and even worse but using deception. Almost a million Sihala Buddhist mums washing toilets in the medieval middle east of the very Muslims you talk about for them to have anything between $200-500. Wonder why there is a rise of paedophile’s and incest breeding within the clan?? It runs in your monk Mahanama lie guided genes. Its your greed that deprives you from seeing that Hindu Gautama is god and his teaching religion. Even if you wanted to be a Tibetan Buddhist monk you cannot unless you are European and all monks leave the rosary/ata prikana and run when they see money. In the world there are certain 1 in 1000 only cars and these have been bought by Lankan Buddhist monk’s duty free using foreign contracts and WB money – your monks are human but greedier than the citizen. In the cities what do monks do but are lazy beggars hoodwinking the public isn’t it??The only great ones are they who sit under trees away from the population like the sanyasis.

        This is difficult to say of the nuns who teach and look after the sick world over and the missionary brothers both of who are responsible for bringing you away from your animal background. Spanish Missionary round tiles means sihala Ulu because you were living on trees for 2500- 1505 years. Neither do you have north indian DNA but of the lower deccan of India- hora oru.

    What Ameer Ali says is nothing new. We are getting tired listening to the same old rant.

    Yes we all know that BBS is the brainchild of Gotabhaya.

    We know the police will not act against the BBS due to express instructions by Gotabhaya.

    We all know the Aluthgama attacks were planned ahead and the assault on the Buddhist priest on Poson poya day was fabricated.

    We know that the people killed during the riots in Aluthgama died of gun shot wounds and the only people who carried guns on the day were STF personel.

    We also know the Nolimit fire is connected to BBS.

    The question is, what can we do about it? How do we bring this murderous regime to book. Muslim youth taking up arms has been suggested but that will lead only to more bloodshed and mayhem. What is more when the dust settles the MARA brothers will rise up triumphant. Taking up arms is not a good idea.

    Can someone please tell me what the solution is.

    Hey Ali, you are one of those pathetic people who is trying to create problems by lying through your back side as well. For example take this sentence “with support from the Buddhist petty bourgeoisie to transform Sri Lanka into a nation of Sinhalese Buddhists and Buddhists only with some limited tolerance to other communities provided they are prepared to live on unequal terms”. Where did you get this you fool and prove it to us all. This is how Muslims around the world has become the enemy of the whole world. That is why Muslims are hated by every nation in the world and also the intelligent, decent people who follow Islam. I have many Muslim friends who hated you guys. BBS and JHU always maintained that as long as Muslims don’t try to destroy Buddhism and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka as you have done in over 20 countries in the world and also as we have lived peacefully, we all can live in harmony. You fool go to Babile Road Gampola and see what your Mullah in the name of Your Allah has done. If that is done to a Muslim how would you feel? Sinhalese are tolerating and it is coming to the edge of tolerance. Muhamad who followed Judaism then turned against it after copying 99% from Judaism. That is your history. Why don’t you talk about assaulting a Buddhist monk by your Muslims idiots which started the whole thing. Do you expect people to accept that and let you do anything. Would you that? You should be grateful that Sinhalese have let you settle and live in Sri Lanka. Why don’t you go back to Arabian country where you can do what you want if you can’t live peacefully with others. Why didn’t you express these silly ideas when Prabhakaran killed and chased your people? He was intelligent enough to know that Muslims are ungrateful bunch as we can see around the world? You silly man, do you expect all the Sinhalese Buddhists to eat drink Halal which is a load of rubbish as we all know. So just because you can write don’t try to inflame the situation. This would have never gone this far if Muslims have accepted the responsibility for what happened and handed over those idiots to Police to do the right thing. Do you agree or not? As long as racists like you are there BBS and JHU should be there to protect Sinhalese and Buddhists. Muslims and Tamils have political parties to protect and lie but Sinhalese have none. No wonder you don’t want anyone to protect Sinhalese, so you can’t do these things.

    Oh these poor PhDs. Dayan Jayatilleka cannot write a single article without invoking Marx or Lenin or another of his ‘patron saints’ and here we have this fellow resorting typically to tired clichés in talking of ‘Buddhist petty bourgeoisie’. Sad.

    Dr Ali is clearly an educated man and should know better than to liken Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and the position of the Muslims in Sri Lanka. To start with, he cannot be unaware that unlike Israel, Sri Lanka is not a creation of the UN, and the Sinhalese have been in the island for thousands of years unlike the present Israelis who are largely post war migrants. If only the Palestinians had a fraction of the political and economic clout that the Muslims have in SL, they’d be a very happy lot.
    And what sense does he show in trying to link the burning of the Jaffna library and the standardisation of the University Entrance exams to a single objective. Standardisation is not the monster that many people make it out to be, it was a sensible device to make some attempt to provide a more level field and help disadvantaged areas. Surely, the good doctor had heard of so called affirmative legislation which has been adopted elsewhere in an effort to help various groups who were previously disadvantaged.

    Dr Ali makes the grudging admission that “, there are certain religious practices that irritate other communities but that calls for inter-faith dialogue, self-introspection and reforms”. He is almost ingenuous in the way he seems to downplay the matter. Dr Ali, some of those “religious practices” of the Muslims do more than merely “irritate”. And I suggest that SL’s Muslim leaders take a long, hard, honest look at these and set about putting things right. For example, I am more than irritated when I am woken up early morning, against my will, because of a call to prayer being broadcast over a high powered loudspeaker ,and I find women walking around with their faces covered both provocative and intimidating. Dr Ali must know these things matter. I need hardly comment on the general unpopularity of the Muslims in many parts of the world. And that is not for no reason. Dr Ali who I believe lives in Australia cannot be unaware of the problems that Muslims have created in that country. It is in the interests of the Muslim community as much as it is for the benefit of inter- race relations in SL that these matters be honestly viewed and meaningfully addressed.

    The Muslim community in SL had lived peacefully alongside non Muslim neighbours for many, many years but in recent years a wave of fundamentalism seems to have passed over it and with it have come the less agreeable aspects of their conduct and public image.

    As for Dr Ali’s concluding remark,” Like the Tamils, Muslims are also now forced to look to the international community for redress”, NO, Dr Ali, the Tamils were not forced to do that, they chose to. If the Muslims wish to follow the same misguided course, they must expect a similar outcome.

    The phenomenal increase in Muslim population cannot be easily explained merely on grounds of migration thus:

    The most important element in this demographic change namely migration has been completely ignored. Between the two censuses hundreds of thousands of Sinhalese and Thamils have left the country permanently in search of greener pastures while the Muslims, for various reasons, have found themselves unable to do so. The total number of Sri Lankan Muslims living in the English speaking countries of UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand does not exceed 30,000 whereas each of the other two communities have settlements of hundreds of thousands.”

    Between 1981 and 2011 population of Muslims increased from 1,046,900 (7.05) to 1,869,820 (9.23) an overall increase of 822,920 (78.60). The comparative figures for Sinhalese and Thamils for the same period is as follows:

    (1) Sinhalese 10,979,400 (73.95) in 1981 to 15,173,820 (74.88) that gives an overall increase of 4,194,420 (38.20) and
    (2) Tamils from 1,886,900 in 1981 (12.71) to 2,270,924 in 2011 (11.21) an overall increase of 384.024 (20.35)persons.
    The decrease in percentage of Thamils is not only due to migration, but also due to deaths during the war years.

    The national average increase of population 14,846,800 in 1981 to 20,263,723 in 2011 gives an overall increase of 5,416,923 (36.48%) persons.

    Therefore the population increase of Muslims (78.60) is double that of national increase (36.48). This is due to early marriage of young Muslims and the fact they don’t practice birth control for religious reasons.

    In the eastern province the Thamils have been pushed to second place from first place both by the Muslims and Sinhalese.

    If this trend continues, sooner or later the Muslims will overtake the Thamils country wide in a decade or two. They are already in a majority in two districts (Trincomalee and Amparai) in the Eastern province. Even after the war Thamils are fleeing the country. Australia has gifted two war ships to Sri Lanka to prevent Thamil asylum seekers reaching the shores of Australia.

    The Sinhalese have no reason for worry. Even if their population remains static, it will take another 1,000 years for Muslims to surpass the Sinhalese! But such an event is in the realm of fantasy.
