16 out of the 18 Muslim parliamentarians had asked the president to intervene and halt the hate campaign against MuslimsExcept AHM Azwer and ARMA Cader, all other Muslim parliamentarians have singed the letter sent to the President Rajapaksa.

“We the Muslim parliamentarians wish to bring to your Excellency’s kind attention the continued hate campaign, intimidation and threats to Muslims, carried out by some Buddhist extremist elements of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), Sihala Ravaya and Ravana Balakaya organisations. These groups have been targeting Muslim places of worship, Halal food, the Muslim attire and now the resettlement of the Muslim lDPs who were expelled by the LTIE in 1990 in the worst act of ethnic cleansing in the history of our nation.” they wrote to the President.

We publish below the letter in full;

April 25th 2014

His Excellency Mahinda Rajapaksa,

The President,

Office of the President,

Socialist Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka, Temple Trees,

Galle Road,

Colombo- 03.

Your Excellency,

We, the Muslim parliamentarians wish to bring to your Excellency’s kind attention the continued hate campaign, intimidation and threats to Muslims, carried out by some Buddhist extremist elements of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS), Sihala Ravaya and Ravana Balakaya organizations.

These groups have been targeting Muslim places of worship, Halal food, the Muslim attire and now the resettlement of the Muslim lDPs who were expelled by the LTIE in 1990 in the worst act of ethnic cleansing in the history of our nation.

Your Excellency, these Muslim lDPs were labeled as “old lDPs” and did not even benefit from the resettlement scheme implemented by the Government and International Agencies including the cash grants provided by the UNHCR.

In the absence of any substantial support for their resettlement, the Muslim religious, political and civil society leadership has been soliciting support for their resettlement from benevolent donors of Muslim countries and individuals. There has been some positive response from some of these donors and a number of houses have been constructed with their support.

These houses have been constructed following all due procedures of land distribution through the Divisional Secretariat and the Presidential Task Force for resettlement. The Bodu Bala Sena and some sections of the media are highlighting this resettlement now as illegal, stating that they have encroached the Wilpattu National Park.

We the undersigned kindly request Your Excellency’s immediate intervention to stop the harassment of these lDPs who have lived in different parts of the country as refugees and as a ‘Forgotten’ people over the last 23 years.

We thank Your Excellency for your kind intervention.

Yours sincerely

AHM Fowzie, Rauf Hakeem, ALM Athullah, Rishad Bathiudeen, Basheer Segu Dawood, Kabir Hasim, Faizer Mustapha, MS Thowfeek, Faisal Cassim, Hassan Ali, MSM Aslam, MHM Haleem, MLAM Hisbullah, Unais Farook, Mustapha Bawa Farook.

    Dear Muslim Parliamentarians,

    You are not honest about Muslims. The great Muslim leader Anwar is not a part of this letter who support the BBS indirectly. The ministers Rauf Hakeem, Rishad Bathiudeen etc. are part of the regime that guide & supports the BBS actions. It is not secret that Muslim politicians were allies and part of the Buddhist fundamentalism when Tamils were target of regimes. Even now they are not prepared to give up their ministerial posts.

    So, Azwer and Cader have become non-Muslims?

      Azwer and Cader were never muslims. Their God is in medamulana and they worship MR everyday, so an idol worshipper cannot be a Muslim. Dear Muslim friends, correct me if I am wrong.

      The Muslims will have to bring these thuggish monks to respect the law. If anyone should break the law, the enforcement authorities should be tasked to act, If the police force is not politicized, they would have brought these self appointed guardians of the laws to kneel before justice. As I have said many times, I am ashamed to be a Buddhist in front of these robe wearing abusers of the law. I hope that we could all live as Sri Lankans.

        Azwer is the A.J Ranasinghe during Premadasa time. He was known the “serappu soup” of Premadasa. Azwer he is even worse than A J Ranasinghe as he will lick the Presidents toilets for his low class attitude in the Parliament. Cader we all know the reasons everyone in Sri Lanka knows it.

          He is VERY resistant by all nature. I hate him taking part in TV debates (balaya, wadapitiya or the like). This kind of loyal men, you will never find. It is the stupidity of men make them that loyal to the president. His sinhala is like written sinhala. I have no doubt the guy has enough enemies than any other politicians in the country. It is simply annoying to him appearing TV screens.

          Azwer is like a bone licking dog. He would never see it in favour of their community but go after Rajapakshes for his survival. A man who has lost all respect to this day.
          His loyality or scaredness towards Rajapakshes are almost like that of Dayan De Silva (Jayathilaka) towards Mahinda Raja.

    “These groups have been targeting Muslim places of worship, Halal food, the Muslim attire”

    places of worship==>Illegally built and big botheration day and night ffarking sound

    Halal food==> you muslims eat Halal , dont charges Penny from us (Sinhalese) , If Halal cant impose on intended recipients , that means fault on the Halal certification process, why faarking ministers accuse Sinhalese

    Muslim attire==> goni billa, we dont like to see gonni billa roaming in Sri Lanka roads.. ugly sense

    Muslim ministers says they are getting help direct from Jihadi countries. Nobody knows what returns are these countries expecting from the recipients, when that is not oversaw by GOSL. But, NPC was barred from getting help even from UN bodies or IMF like non Jihadi bodies established to help.

    Further they are trying to bring LTTE here, an action of reminding their share of the genocide crime in Mullaitivu and asking from the criminal government a prize for that. Minister Bathiyutheen has issued statement saying that the Wilpattu settlement is illegal and was prepared to wait for government allocating lands for these peoples. These parliamentarians did not do anything about the displacement took place in Colombo. Because that was done by brother prince. Here, without doing anything for last 23 years, now trying to bring LTTE to occupy the Wilpattu forests.

    Dear Mr. AHM Fowzie

    “The Muslim Ministers and MPs wants the President’s immediate intervention to stop the harassment of Muslim lDPs who have lived in different parts of the country as refugees and as a ‘Forgotten’ people over the last 23 years.”

    “16 out of the 18 Muslim parliamentarians had asked the president to intervene and halt the hate campaign against Muslims. Except AHM Azwer and ARMA Cader, all other Muslim parliamentarians have singed the letter sent to the President Rajapaksa.”

    Ask for NO DOABLE STANDARD AGAINST THE MUSLIMS OR ANY OTHER CITIZENS OR GROUPS.

    You have to ask the President to uphold the Law and Implement the law and take action against criminals who commit criminals acts.

    Muslims and non-Muslims alike have lost confidence in the present President and his ability to maintain law and order and govern.

    Therefore, the People will be forced to form our own neighborhood watch groups and home guards groups to protect us from the criminals as the police do not protect the citizens. Recently the UNP parliamentarians were attached as well as a Buddhist monk was attached by the criminals.

    We will form a Peoples force to Protect the People from the criminals.

    YOU will be exposed locally and internationally.

    You will be entirely responsible for the resulting chaos.

    How many of the Sinhalese knew that it is this Minister,A.H.M.Fowzie who said not to lay hand on his three underworld criminals, when Inspector Wijayanake went to arrest them at Slave Island in connection with the attempted murder of two lawyers at Colombo. Later this honest Inspector Wijayanayake was transferred to Eastern Province with the view to save his skin. Moreover, is the public aware that it is this Minister A.H.M.Fowzie was carrying on a business with the underworld criminal Pottu Nauffer illegally. As such, one ponders whether the so-called Peoples Force will comprise of his underworld criminals, especially from Al-Jihad group.

    These Muslims politicos know fully well this appeal to the President
    is akin to the Sinhala village saying of “Horage ammagen illanawa” (asking the mother of the thief of his whereabouts) This appeal is nothing short of Fowzie and the 40 …. trying to save their skins from the over 1.5 million Muslims disgusted with them. This is their answer they did SOMETHING. They know nothing will come out of it because the man they seek relief from is the man who is controlling the yellow-robed mafia. Some of the biggest and long-standing drug-traffickers and smugglers are in the list.

    The only admirable feature in the appeal is the public humiliation of that mad dog Azwer – the hollering Andare in Parliament. Cader has reason to wonder why he is kept off – because the rest of the signatories are just as opportunistic. Reminds me of Jeffrey Archer’s “Honour among thieves”

    The so called politicians of SL, whichever religion they follow worship only one thing – POWER. Its us- the VOTERS, who are the real fools. The lokka worships two gold ornaments in his hand always. The rest worship the lokka.Thus making those ornaments their lord(s).
    If these morons believe that one day we have to meet their creator they wouldn’t do this. I hope they have the intelligence to read the comment of their voters in Very Independant Media like – CT. (I tried to write comments on another national daily but now I am banned writing comments in it. I have never used bad words but I had been sharp in my criticism to the present style of governance).
    Like one comment suggests,we should create vigilante groups not only to protect religious harmony but also to educate masses to create useful political system.
    If & when a new leader takes over the country just wait and see all these jokers will be worshipping that leader.

    ” Muslim IDPs expelled LTTE in the WORST act of ETHNIC CLEANSING in this nation”. I am sorry for those expelled Muslims. But really is that the worst act of ethnic cleansing in this country?!!. Where was Mr.Fowzie when Tamils were slaughtered by Sinala-Buddists led by monks in 1958,1977 and 1983. Did’nt the Muslims serve under SL army as intelligent officers against LTTE? I am not justifying the actions of LTTE. But if you go after your enemy won’t the enemy srike back?
    How many Muslim leaders resign their ministry posts or withdrew their support to this racist government? Zero,a shameless zero

    Aiyo Poor opportunists Parliamentarians

    They wrote to President even at the time of the attack at Grandpass Mosque. It fell on a deaf year because the green light for the President to meet them should come from the supporters behind the perpetrators. Now the whole world knows who give the tacit support to BBS at el. why even the Minister Vasudeva recently said that President is ready to implement the LLRC recommendation to solve the northern problem but the Defence secretary didn’t allow it.

    Even in this case the same. The other joke is when well famous Lawyer Faiz Musthapha arranged a meeting for Muslims with Defence Secretary at a private place the invitees had been asked not to antagonize the guest and to give them the queries in writing.

    These are type of political and community leaders the Muslim community has. The funniest part of this is the President is well aware of the types of Muslim leaders who are foot lickers for their survival and growth. The whole country know who the Puttalam booruwa in Parliament.

    What to do the leaders are made by the people. If the people are well informed and well equipped to take decision at the appropriate time this won’t happen to any community.Dependency mentality is the main culture that has created an unintended adverse consequences in the political history now.

    The majority community is no exception as they are exploited at the correct time by BBS at el to incite the communal feelings among the majority. Inciting the communal feeling among all communities is the well established and proved method to be in power in the country.

    Central Bank governor- another messiah- is there to speak of growth in figures. People are sold in bulk to politicians of all communities in times of elections.

    These Muslim Parliamentarians already may have gone to MR and asked him to upgrade the Ifthar for this years Ramadan.So the foolish Muslim voters can be fooled again by the govt.
    MR is on record saying “these idiot Muslim leaders are shaking my hands with which I have eaten Haram”. He knows what is haram & Halaal, not these fools!

    it is disgusting and for the first time i seen a rotten racist insult a gentleman like Hon.Minister Fowzie ,what abunch of lies ,”Citizen” my foot he is,,, this is no different than the false allegations made aginst the Muslims by The BBS ,first about Muslims spiting into the food offered to none Muslims ,and we know why they said that, this is the only way some of them know to do business, destory your competitor and then continue to lie in their name and rob your own kind & the other is The Thakiaya lie , open lies, if the same thing was expressed in countires where the law is firm we could have sued these goons till their bumbs were on fire ,but do not worry have faith in The President give the man his time ,you will soon see alot of justice in the near future ,yes I see a Lee kuan yew in him ,he is on the right path ,President is a calm well collected man , soon you will see a nice and warm sedation law passed and we can send some food to the patharas of all these guys at bogandara ,oh not forgetting the biggest ignorant fool and lier Dilantha Withanage, who coninously surfs the web to obtain anti Muslim lies from Islamaphobic websites without clarifing the truth and adds to it by taking verses from The Quran out of context as well as from other un athunetic books to support his attacks and alegation on The Muslims ,BBS and the rest with them are like an ass who’s eyes are covered and led to a dungen, where they will all end up soon if they keep following this fool ,a doctor he claims himself to be ,just imagine having the like of this guy as professionals in a developing country struggling to make a come back after three to four decades of international isolation -will be like?

    It is time to rethink, Sri Lankans need to look around the globe ,think of the futre of your children ,give The President his time ,the oppesition leader should along with his memebers have dialogue with the government and support its intiatives to establish law and oreder and not create hurdles, they should wait for their turn to prove and that is the election day when people will decide ,last election was a proof the government had been to agreat extend honset with the polling ,so let us wait and while we wait let us stop racism ,nip it in the bud.

    —————————-

    BTW Dilantha Withanage , on 20/042014 ,in the ceylon Today -claims his life is in danger this is a joke ,,However I leave it to the readers to comment ,Mostly would appreciate some comments about Dilantha Withanage’s letter ,from writters like Native vedda ,Amarasiri and Ben Hurling.
    ———————-

    I as a Sri lankan & Muslim would like to Thank all the Muslim MPs who have atlast taken the right intiative by writting to The President ,let us wait and see what action he takes without jumping the Gun.

    Senior minister A.H.M. Fowzie says he did not sign a letter sent to the president by the Sri Lanka Muslim Council alleging that certain organizations were in a hate campaign against Muslims.

    However, the minister’s signature is included in the letter in question, according to a copy which was released to the media.

    Bodu Bala Sena, Sihala Ravaya and Ravana Balaya, all led by Buddhist clergy, have been accused thus by the Muslim Council.

    The letter alleged these organizations were disrupting mosques, halal foods, Muslim clothing as well as resettling of the Muslims.

    It called on the president to immediately intervene on behalf of the rights of the Muslims.

    When contacted by Neth FM, senior minister Fowzie has rejected claims he was a signatory to the letter.

    These Muslims are the worst culprits on earth. Just see what a lot of destruction they have done to human mankind. In most of the Muslim countries they have chased Christian or have been murdered. Where are the Christians in Nigeria, Iraq, Palestine, Indonesia, Egypt, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Bangladesh. Today in Nigeria they are killing all Christians including children and some girls have been kidnapped and sold Muslim extremists. Where is the justice for this even UN is speech less. Today in Sri Lanka if you don’t have a organization like BBC it will be the same story in Sri Lanka. Our polipoltians want give a sheet for these problems today. These underworld criminal Raja crooks are already busy in wrecking and demolishing our country. Get behind this BBC and protect our country before it is too late.

    AbuBakr Shaka, the leader of the fanatical Muslim outfit Boko-haram – now bent on destroying secular Nigeria – is in the networks today announcing “we abducted the school girls. We will sell them in the market as slaves in the name of Allah. That is what Allah wanted us to do. These girls had no business to go and get spoilt studying in school” I seriously doubt either Allah or his Messenger Mahmud will say a thing like that. That looks barbaric and stone-age even for Muslims. I don’t know. But the behaviour of those who speak for the Muslims in most parts of the world in recent times earns for them a lot of enemies. It is shocking in nearby oil-rich Brunei, the Western-educated Sultan has introduced stoning as punishment for going against Sharia. What indeed happening in the Islamic world???
