Muslim-Owned Shop Torched In Wijerama

Another Muslim-owned shop in Wijerama, Nugegoda has been petrol bombed at 1 AM on June 6th. While the police have deployed 4 teams to arrest Galagoda Atte Gnanasra, this is the 5th big shop that has been set on fire.

“Fortunately, the shop owners have adopted a brilliant fire protection system by filling water into plastic bottles behind the front door so that if petrol bombs are throw, the plastic bottle will burst and the fire would be doused,” a ship owner in Wijerama told Colombo Telegraph.

Speaking to Colombo Telegraph, a member of the Muslim Council said: “While the President is talking about discussions among religious leaders to resolve ethnic conflicts, the Muslim economy is being set on fire on a daily basis. The president must immediately order the arrest of these arsonists or force the IGP to resign if he cannot do his job.”

The following is a documentation of the violence against Muslims during the last 5 weeks:

1 16th April, 2017 – Petrol Bombs thrown at shops in Godapitiya

Four shops owned by Muslims were attacked with petrol Bombs in Godapitiya, Porruva,. This incident went unreported due to the pressure brought in by the local police. This was not even reported in the social media by local residents, fearing further police intimidation. Even after a month, the police have still not been able to investigate and apprehend the perpetrators of this act of violence.

20th April, 2017 – Land Grab at Irrakamam in Mayakkali

2  1/2 Acres of Muslim land was forcible taken over in Irrakamam in Mayakkali. No police action has been taken even after complaints have been lodged.

This statement was purely meant to provoke the Sinhala Buddhists.

The Police who were present did not attempt to stop this mob from causing this violence. Hiru TV showed the destruction of the huts of the Muslims. Here again, Ven. Gnanasara Thero insulted Allah subahanauwa ta’aala in the most demeaning words by talking about Allah’s balls. His exact words were, ” They have placed Allah’s Balls here. They say there is no physical being called Allah and yet, they have kept his balls here”. Defaming of Allah subahanauwa ta’aala, is the most blasphemous insult that no Muslim will tolerate. Police complaints have been made with video evidence and the they have failed to take any action yet.

The entire Muslim population of Selva Nagar in Thoppur (Tricomalee District, bordering Seruvila and Muthur electorate) has been threatened by a mob from outside led by Buddhist monks.  A large number of Muslims have fled the area due to this intimidation. The local temple (Pansala) currently owns six acres and they are now attempting to claim 49 acres of Muslim lands insisting that these are archeological sites.

        It is obvious that “attackers” have briefed the Shop Owner beforehand. The Shop Owner, being a genius, sought ‘expert advice’ to minimize the damage of the “upcoming petrol bombing”. It looks like he had deployed “water-bottle-firefighters” (in Sinhala “Gini Niwana Vathura Bothal Hamudava”) the day before the attack. —— I reiterate the fact that this is a well planned plot to target Sinhalese especially vociferous Buddhist Monks as every time there is an attack, Muslims point finger at Gnanasara Thero. ——-They want to suppress his voice as Gnanasara Thero is a threat to spreading Muslim radicalism, illegal Muslim settlements and forcibly acquiring lands belonging to Buddhist Temples.—– Furthermore, they themselves have created an artificial hate-wave around the country.— Did the Police verify the authenticity of Social Media who were accused for hate-crimes whether they were authored by genuine Buddhists or fake Buddhists, before bringing in new laws to punish them without first enforcing law against Tamil/Muslim politicians who first started racial slur and incite others?—– Before punishing “reactors”, Police should punish “actors”. The reaction was the inevitable result of the action by Tamil/Muslim politicians. —- There is no need for Sinhalese Buddhists to torch Mosques or Muslim Businesses. If something like that happened years ago, it was done by thugs and fake people who do anything for money, not by genuine Buddhists. If Buddhists want to react, they could easily boycott Muslim Businesses. —– If Government’s selected suppression of Buddhist Monks and Sinhalese Patriots and deliberate pre-arranged attacks on Muslim Businesses to tarnish the image of Buddhists “continue”, then Sinhalese will retaliate by boycotting Muslim Businesses. We are not arrogant type. But we don’t tolerate this injustice against Buddhist Monks and Buddhists anymore. Think again before taking Buddhists to that end and then we will show everybody who are the losers.

      Jim

      I hope you can be better than this, While resolving temples lands encroached by the people,
      No one should be given free hands to destroy innocent people and their livelihood.

      These issues can easily be resolve with non violent actions.

      We all are humans and no one should be allowed to cause havoc like this! We do not need another black July. Maybe this is the whole idea behind Nanasara!

      Government must take control and release a bold statement condemning them before this goes out of hand.

      Stern action must be taken against the trouble makers in any nationality that threaten the cohabitation of all races. culprits who destroy forests and archeological sites!

      I strongly there is a cats paw, I do not for a second believe Nanasara is saving Buddhism,
      Why is this government not doing anything to find out who is behind Nanasara?

      I think it is time stop accusing MaRa and Gota for this crap! From what I heard, they were also helpless concerning ramifications.

      Muslim politicians must also understand they can not play the minority card and get away with atrocities! Hope they learn something from what is happening in UK!

      Strong solution for this is abolishing all the race based political parties, because this is discriminatory and not seen in developed world!

      Ehh you stupid Buddhist. Buddhism is a religion of peace not war. You are disrepcting the great lord Buddha. No point of going to pansala every week bala. You sinhalese are scared by the minorities. Don’t act like cowards and create violence in the name of Buddha. We are all Sri Lankans not muslims or tamils or buddhists. This is our home country and we all have equal rights. That gnasara is mentally retarded and should be shot like a dog with his genitals cut off. No wonder sri lanka is still very undeveloped and is suffereing from shitty politicians

    “Yahapalana Agreement” with China to restore Aid is on NHK Japanese TV from Tokyo……..99 year lease to China with all Security and Administration in Chinese hands………. The sacked Port Boss Ranatunga brother said it is a Chinese Colony , signed sealed and delivered………NHK also showed the agreement between Batalanda , Bodhi Sira duo and Hindian Modi……..Trinco Harbour is to be controlled and administered by the Hindians ….. Ranatunga didn’t comment on that….. Are Our Sinhala Buddhists being distracted by BBS and Wahabis ?……….Is RAW behind this……We know DR Ranil is desperate to get his Batalanda constitution pass the post in the next 24 Months …….. Otherwise his ass will be grass……..Has the country being divided in preparation for the Separation…… so that the TNA and its Vellala Tamils get the Federal Homeland covering both North and the East… With Hindians in total control of Trincomalee, and their Navy hiding in the s ame spots which British used during World War 11….. .One thing good though , our Sinhala B uddists lassies don’t need to be comfort women for Indians……If the Wahabis do not wake up, they will be sharing those duties with non Vellala s in the Homeland……..

    MUSLIMS ARE EVERYWHERE. Surely this so called attack is an inside job, for two reasons: 1) frame the man of the hour Gnanasara thero, 2) commit INSURANCE FRAUD- Muslim businesses are valued more than they really are. —————————————————————————————————————————————— Why don’t Muslim businesses set up state-of-the-art CCTV system or hand over any video recordings they have to the police ???????????? the reason for that is, if they set up cameras, their own illegal and criminal activities will be recorded. —————————————————————————————————————————————– On the pictures, why are there so many bottles lying around? It seems they have being brewing “Kasippu”, so “Kasippu” brewing was the cause of fire. CT regular commenter “Native Vadda ” must be a regular customer at the shop, his comments prove it.

    Whilst condemning what happened , to the Muslims of Sri Lanka you reap what you sow. Despite being ethnically Tamil , in the name of religion you denied your actual heritage, which is a shameful act and claimed an Arab/Moor origin that only a few of you have in a small does. You then joined the Sinhalese racists and establishment from the time of independence to kill murder rape loot and deny the island’s indigenous Eelam Tamils their just rights in their own lands. You are still doing this in the east , conniving with the very same racist Sinhalese establishment and elements that are now attacking the Muslims in the south , to deny the Tamils there their just rights to their land. Remember every time there was a crisis it was the Tamils who helped you out. When you fled your homelands in Tamil Nadu and Kerala , you settled and found refuge along coastal Puttalam and the north west coast that was part of the Tamil Jaffna kingdom. When the Portuguese captured the Jaffna kingdom and started to kill the Muslims , you fled to the Sinhalese central parts. They refused to give refuge and started to attack the Muslims and king Senarath in desperation asked the Tamil Vannmannai chiefs in the southern parts of the east( as the Trincomalee district north of Mutur was part of the Jaffna kingdom and was now in Portuguese hands. ) who came under his loose control to provide refuge to the fleeing Muslims and since they were ethnic Tamils , they did so and gave them lands and even Tamil Hindu women in marriage to start a family.

    They settled them away from the native Tamil Hindu villages. This is why you still see in the east , Muslims villages and towns, separate from the indigenous Hindu Eelam Tamil villages. However despite all this kindness that the island’s Tamils had showed to you . You backstabbed and betrayed them at every instance to the racist Sinhalese establishment for petty gains. You even started to disown your own Tamil language , that is your heritage. It was a Muslim Minister who connived with the Sinhalese racists to introduce standardisation in higher education, in order to deliberately deny Tamil students higher education. Muslims sided with the Sinhalese during every sate sponsored anti Tamil pogrom and were seen killing looting and destroying Tamils and their homes/ businesses. In the east they were heavily armed by the Sinhalese army and these Muslim home guards were killing raping looting and ethnically cleansing thousands of Hindu Tamils from their homes and villages. The very same Tamils whose ancestors gave their ancestors refuge and even women to start families. These eastern Muslims on their maternal line are very closely related to eastern Mukkuva Hindu Tamils and still follow their matriarchal Mukkuva law. This is one of the reasons, as well as spying for the Sri Lankan armed forces, for the LTTE took to chase away northern Muslims. The reason was stupid and not just , as tow wrongs do not make a right.

      Real siva sankar sarma is a venom anti-human because of their pagan values. FYI Islam embraces all ethnicity immaterial whether they are from India or Timbaktu. Every Muslims enjoy equality pray shoulder to shoulder in the congregation should say their daily five times compulsory prayers in Arabic. So what is the issue with you idiot? Islam came to protect and uphold humanity against atrocities committed by the pagans of Mecca Quraish who are your cousins from Hindia. Thank God Muslims reformed so much, that they became the beacon light illuminating the entire world, taking the pagans from the darkness to the light. Who are the Pagans? the pagans are idol worshiper, fire worshipers, kill baby girls (infanticide practiced in today’s modern India by the pagans) Indian aghori priests eating human flesh in the modern era watch on you tube aghori sadu eating human flesh.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65HrURapm3U
      these pagan men worship these lowly vultures, Pagans will never marry a women without a dowry (shamelessly devouring from the woman’s wealth and many of the brides are burned alive) dividing people into caste and denying their rights, abuse the low caste people, and do all injustices and these pagans shamelessly without any remorse try to criticize the Muslims, who have given to the world contributions in many sciences with they inventions in all sciences. You and your like minded pagans dirtiest ugliest stinking vultures teaching us humanity?

    In 2009 Muslims were seen celebrating with the Sinhalese racists and holding street parties and parades on the death of more than 143000 innocent Tamil civilians in the Vanni at the hands of the Sri Lankan armed forces and government that the UN is still investigating and the incarceration of more than 300000 Tamils in the Vanni , under horrific Nazi like conditions, where they were deliberately tortured humiliated raped and starved by the Sri Lankan armed forces. You joined these very same racists and establishment against your own fellow non Muslim Tamils in the name of religion , petty gains and promised stolen Eelam Tamil lands in the east , to kill rape and commit war crimes. and are now getting the same medicine from the very same racists and crying unfair , as we were your co partners in your anti Tamil genocidal dance and now instead of our promised reward , you now attacking us. Of course the Sinhalese never intended to give you any rewards but were only using you to destroy the Tamils. Divide and rule and you feel for it. Now that the Tamils have been defeated you have no use for them. In fact they hate and scorn you far more than the island’s Tamils.

        There again you largely low caste Dravidian Indian Tamil immigrants, keep in denying your actual origin and insist on a Moor origin . This is where all the problem lies fake origin , fake history and to justify this still fawning to the Sinhalese racists from some crumbs from their table. Listen wanker you and your backstabbing community are no Moors or Arabs , if there is any Arab( definitely not Moor) it got drowned in the huge sea of Dravidian Tamil Muslims who migrated to the island a few centuries ago. Your comments prove what I stated is correct. It is not me but most probably you and your community who badly want to be buggered by some Arab or Moor , that is why you still shamelessly claim to be part of them , despite them stating that Muslims of Sri Lanka are lowly South Asian converts to Islam. Go and get a life you Wahhabi extremist, you should not lie and speak of post filth during the holy month of Ramadan. Even I know this. Pathetic

This may be the reason you are so obsessed with Australoid and the huge Moor coca inside your Thulluka derriere makes you constantly thing and dream about Moors

      Real siva Sankaran sharma, the accentric Muslim basher, Can you tell why the so called powerful LTTE collapsed? The Lord Almighty God is Just to all His Creations whether they be Jews, Christians, Muslims, hindu, buddist etc. who ever who caused corruption on the earth, committed injustices, destruction such as suicide bombing. They thought that they were the invincible power. Similarly there were the Khemer Roug, and many such who committed aggression against humanity such as the Pharoah, Nimrod, the people of Sodom But Allaah Gave them an appointed time to reform but when they failed, Allaah The Almighty Humiliated them with swift Divine Punishment for their atrocities now let us see what the Holy Quraan The Final Testament for the humanity. The Chapter 3 : verse 54
      :” And the disbelievers made a plan ˹against Jesus, the son of Mary (May the Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon them)˺, but Allah also planned—and Allah is the best of planners.
      Allah is ever watchful over all His Creations, nothing is hidden from Him So see how Allaah caused the down fall of the mighty LTTE. by its own trusted tamil brother and valiant commander known as Karuna? This is the worst treachery in history. of couse Karuna is not a Muslim is he? so Real siva sankar sharma, dont you see how despicable worthless the tamils are? I advise you to put your house in order first. The Muslims knows all about their commitment and how to conduct their lives and their limitations set forth in their book of guidance. They fear none But the Allaah The Almighty. The Muslims have the concept of accountability as every minute action good or evil is recorded and justice will be dispensed. None can escape from His Grip.

          Pandi Kutti you are the real personification of the pig, so pigs have no shame, it is the only cuckold animal which love to enjoy when its mate is used by other pigs and it is the only animal which does not get orgasm with one partner. It need seven partners to achieve a climax.
          The Islamic wisdom behind the prohibition is due to this reason. The consumers of pig meat causes one to be shameless. Why there are so many rape against women? because they are not modest, and their body is exposed due to consumption of pandi kutti That is why your women go out of the house in fine revealing dress to attract the males. That there are so many ladies saloon in every nook and corner so as to beautify to show her beauty to outsiders. You have no shame when so many hungry eyes devouring each and every part of your women’s exposed body, her belly, and tight blouse extra attraction that is because of your being a pandi kutti. The western woman reveal her whole body in the beaches is also due to shamelessness. Contrary to Islamic women, God Almighty’s Commandments to be heeded with complete submission that the woman in Islam be modest and never reveal the beauty to outsiders. That Islamic system does not allow perversion and mixing up males with females. Muslims have an exclusive ideology and practices totally contrary to non-Islamic systems. Islam is the only way of life for the entire humanity. Why should the western world is so desperately interested in Islamic way of life? No liquor, No Pork, No Usery, No dowry i.e. illegally savoring of wife wealth, No female infanticide, No music and illegal sex, Islamic laws to dispense justice without delay, very less crime in the world, No idol worship, fire worship no blind faith,, paganism, oppression against the poor and the weak people in the society of India.

        He has not bashed Muslims or stated anything anti Islamic. He has only commented on the behaviour of the Sri Lankan Muslims and their actual origin. You do not like the truth and are now trying to distort facts and state what he stated is anti Islamic and against all Muslims. You then go about giving a sermon about Islam and Allah , which is unwarranted and has nothing to do with his comment. This very common amongst all the Muslims in the world, when unpalatable home truths are stated, they immediately claim the person is anti Muslim and against Islam, to hide their shortcomings. Are you now going to issue a Fatwa against him , for stating Sri Lankan Muslims are actually low caste Tamil Hindu converts and have very little Arab and also for stating the denied their Tamil origin from petty benefits and aided and abetted the same Sinhalese racists to commit war crimes on the Tamils and now are complaining when their former partners in the Tamil genocide have now turned against them. This is the truth and what has it got to do with Islam or Muslims in general? He is specifically talking about the Sri Lankan Muslims and not about Islam or Muslims. Got it.

    As a Muslim I do not believe the flood disaster has anything to do with karma & also I do not hold the poor Victims responsible for the hate campaign.

    CT you have completely edited a very important comment above,however i have reedited and I hope this will meet your regulations.

    ————————-
    The Environmental disasters are caused by the very hands of men in the Seas or land.
    41- Chaos ( complete disorder of the natural balances of the atmosphere) has appeared on land and sea because of
    what the hands of people have earned, He thus lets them taste the
    consequences of their works that they may return.
    (30- The Romans, 41)

    Man has been paying the cost of damages he has inflicted on his surroundings and nature throughout centuries. Passion for more money, sloth and irresponsibility have made man blind to the fact that he is part of his natural environment and that the damage he causes will unavoidably affect him. The development of environmental consciousness in man, who has suffered from damages of his own doing, is a recent event.

    The reason why this shop owner was prepared was because already a shop was attacked in the same manner and they were not prepared ,it is obvious for the Muslims who’s business is under attack today to take precautions, and for those who care to know all Most all Sri lankan Muslims are orthodox Muslims and majority of them do not engage in interest and Insurance , even Vehicle Insurance they go for either third party or the Islamic system via amana .

    The Muslims and Jews are accused of lying in business , what they refer as lying is they want them to sell at cost ,or free(they like freebees) basically everyone lies if you take it in that sense , because everyone hides the cost and adds a profit .

    You should stick to your traditional agriculture and leave the business to those who can and let the government enforce proper laws to make sure all smuggling and income taxes are properly collected .

    It is the exact situation that created the Holocaust in Germany in ww2 and the genocide in Myanamr today .

    Losers ,know no other way.

      “The Muslims and Jews are accused of lying in business”

      Jews are very clever, I don’t know why they cheat in business. But they definitely cheat. Look at Carl Icahn, he is known in the business world as a “corporate raider.” He will buy enough shares of a company to give him a seat on the Board of Directors. After that, he can use his position of authority to push for changes in the company, such as mergers, acquisitions, or management. This is what Icahn did to Trans World Airlines in 1985. According to the Wikipedia, “Icahn systematically sold TWA’s assets to repay the money he borrowed to purchase the company, which was described as “asset stripping.” In 1988, Icahn took TWA private, gaining a personal profit of $469 million, and leaving TWA with a debt of $540 million. In 1991, he sold TWA’s London routes to American Airlines for $445 million.” He tried to do the same thing with US Steel. There are many examples like him. The Muslims in SL are small fish compared to Jews like Icahn,, but use similar tactics to play dirty. As I said earlier, they will form associations to practice price control, use deceptive advertising, bribe the middleman (supplier), etc.

        It is wrong to put all eggs in one basket. In Islam the concept of accountability is mandatory. In the Day of Judgement, every soul will be asked 4 questions by His Creator the Almighty and one of the questions is How did one earned and how did he spend. It is not correct to accuse all the Muslims and the Jews as cheats but there are in every section good and bad are there. Lets see the admonition from the Lord Almighty.
        ” Source : Quran and Science / 14 Jul 2014

        The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:“Every traitor will have a banner on the Day of Resurrection and it will be said: This is the betrayer of so-and-so.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

        Cheating and deception are despicable characteristics that are beneath a decent person. Intentionally distorting the truth in order to mislead others contradicts the values of honesty, which requires an attitude of sincerity, straightforwardness, and fairness that leaves no room for cheating, lying, trickery, or deceit. There are many texts from the Quran and the Sunnah conveying the meaning that cheating, whether the target be Muslims or non-Muslims, is forbidden.

    Seems like somebody preparing soil to grow another bumper harvest of blood and suffering. The monk is the plough. It was the same happened earlier when Sri Lanka was poised for development. The only way Sri Lanka can be made a begging nation is by making sure Sri Lanka fights among its own people. Muslim, Tamil, Sinhalese, Hindus, Buddhists and Christians are various dumb pieces who are moved by these external invisible powers for their own interests. Everybody knows who creates problem all over the world and how. Its more than pathetic we knowingly becoming pawns and shed our own blood and tears for some foreigners to gain. And we call this “Patriotism”

    I have been surprised to read some of the comments made by our respected readers. Many of the Muslim business places and Mosques have been attacked during the last few weeks and unfortunately no arrests or apparently any other significant Police actions regarding these incidents have been taken so far. Under these circumstances some traders have taken precautionary measures to protect their businesses. These measures have been labeled by some writers as a conspiratorial measure to malign a particular Buddhist monk. This appalling assumption is disgusting and only indicates the state of mind of these writers. This type of mental condition is very much closer to Sadism which needs attention by a competent Psychologist or a Psychiatrist.

    Conspirational Measure To Malign A Particular Buddhist Monk……………….YES THAT IS THE FACT…………………..How Can The GOSL Turn To Muslim Politicians As Everything Is Going Under DEALS….All These Forest Damages And Archealogical Site Invadings and Other Hate Acts Could Have Been Investigated And Action Should Had Been Taken …If Not For The DEALS…….But We See This GOSL Itself Aiding And Abiding………………………Aiding And Abiding Racialism Or Racial Violence Is A Big Crime…..But Any Way GOSL should Take Immediate Action To Stop This Petrol Bomb Throwing Etc …………As These Same Things Are Being Experienced In Places World Wide ACTS COMMITTED TO IRRITATE PEOPLE AND GET THEM TO A COMMUNAL VIOLENCE …In All Our History Buddhist MOnks Have Been Been In The Fore FronT In DefenDing Our Country but Through Peaceful Ways…….Buddhism Is The Spirit Of This Country which Should Be Safe Guarded For All communities to Live Peace fully In This Island …. So The Buddhist Monks Should Be Safeguarded……We See This As A Big Propaganda These Muslim Extremists Are taking To TARNISH THE IMAGE Of The Buddhist Monks

    I am saddened by this incident as well as some of the comments. This only shows how hard it is to build One Sri Lanka where all communities live together in peace. Let us hope and pray we can overcome these challenges.
