Muslim Owned Fashion Bug Is Attacked By A Mob Led By Buddhist Monks

By Colombo Telegraph

A mob, lead by a group of Buddhist monks has attacked the Head office and Stores Complex of Mssrs Fashion Bug situated at Pepiliyana Junction, a short while ago, at around 8 pm SL time (Thursday 28th March).The excuse used to attack this complex was that a 15 year old girl had been raped inside the building.

“The accusation that a rape had taken place is a baseless one as can be proved by the close circuit cameras which were installed as well as the inquiry carried out by the Police.The camera tells the real story on how these mob of fanatics had entered the building. The Special Task Force had to intervene to bring this attack under control.” said sources close to the owners.

“There was a false allegation of a rape occurring inside the Fashion Bug Complex in Pepiliyana. A rape did take place in the neighbourhood, where the accused has been remanded and the situation has been handled in the correct manner. The mob went out of control after intervening in that incident and turned on Fashion Bug.” the owners told the Colombo Telegraph.

This is another, in a series of attacks against Muslims as Fashion Bug owns by a family of Sri Lankan Muslims. The mob had gone on a rampage setting clothes that were in the store on fire and shouting obscenities at the girls who worked in this complex, saying that they should be ashamed to work in an enterprise owned by Muslims and to never come back. The mob had also manhandled some of the girls.

    The events of violence towards minorities unfolding in Sri Lanka portend grave future perils for all its citizens. It is like an animal that consumes its own flesh. When the animal is dying and in its death throes, the hoodlums responsible will be far away, bringing up their families in the polite company of people of a safe and democratic faraway land…What will become of my lovely island paradise….?

    When even in the traffic law action can be taken against a motorist for attempting to prevent an accident.

    How come saffron robed thugs while insulting Lord Buddha inciting vigilance through openly promoting hatred in public.

    we are a country after 30 years of a bloody war still paying the cost war and surely another 2-3 generations will have to. Can we afford another blood shed?

    This BBS (Dollar Bala Sena) is determined to see an eruption of violence against Muslims so that their paymasters’ will reward them further, failing which these thugs will be killed by their donors for cheating them. It is their lives Vs Peace and harmony of the country and its main religion.

    Why are the Prelates of the Asgiri, Malwathu and other chapters are a sleep while thug monks disgrace lord Buddha and the Sasana?

    My question is that who is threatening Buddhism – Almost all
    Panasala (Buddhist temples)the Elderly who goes to observe sill are preached about halal and Kuran, most leading temples display big billboards within the compounds with halal logo instead of dhamma pada pansil pada etc. It is the temples and Monks threatening the religion.

    I and hundreds of my friends are now learning about Halal and we find that Gnasara had been lying and making us fools as per saying he repeated in a recent rally “Sinhalaya Modaya Kewum kannya Yodaya”

    why cant the president as the head of state, defence minister arrest these peace breakers?

    Buddha warned us from the danger of hate, he said, “One tree makes a million match sticks, only one match stick need to burn a million trees”.

    BBS has shown an indiffrence to Buddhism.

    Many of the Muslim readers are upset over this isolated incident, and rightly so. But before we condemn intolerance, let me ask this simple question: can any non-Muslim visit Mecca? Does that not represent intolerance? I can go to Dalada Maligawa, or the Sistine Chapel, or the Taj Mahal, but not Mecca, even though there is evidence to suggest that Kaba is actually a Hindu shrine. Why these double standards?

      Only Muslims can go to Mecca because Muhammad had decreed (Koran 9:28); “O you who believe (Muslims) the Mushrikun (polytheists and unbelievers in Allah and the Message of Muhammad) are Najasum (impure, defiled). So let them not come near Al-Masjd Al Haram (the Kaaba in Mecca) after this year”.

      Accordingly, Muhammad renounced Jews and Christians as polytheists, therefore impure and defiled and commanded that they never come near the Kaaba in Mecca. To this day, leave alone Buddhists, Hindus and etc, no Jew or Christian can enter the Mecca, or come near Al-Kaaba, the Holy shrine in Saudi Arabia.

      It all started after Ibn Abd al-Wahhab started to propagate salafism or monotheism or ‘One God’ following in 18th century. House of Saud backed his fundermentalist teaching of the Koran and following of Muhammad’s life example called Sunna in true sense. This is what is now called ‘Wahabism’.

      Wahhabis claim that moderate Sri Lankan Muslims do not know anything of Islam and only themselves are the scholars of real Islam. Wahhabis use Saudi oil money to brainwash Sufi Muslims into Wahhabism. Wahhabis even use Sri Lankan Government Cultural and Religious Affairs Departments to continue their nefarious activities.

      A recent article in CT on Wahhabi violence faced by a Sufi named Abdullah or ‘Rah’ explained internal feud, mosque burning and what has happened to moderate Muslim society in general in the recent past in Sri Lanka.

      Muhammad had destroyed idols in 624 AD. There had been tombs of the wives and companions of Prophet Muhammad in Saudi Arabia. As true followers of Muhammed Wahhabis considered tombs are idols. So Wahhabis have destroyed the tombs and turned them in to parking lots. Some historical places of Islam from the Prophet’s house in Mecca and companion Ayoob Ansari’s house in Medina were also turned into apartment blocks.

      Be knowledgeble, Google and read more about Wahhabism.

        Kaaba is not a museaum for a pony and dog show. It is a place of worship.

        Good explanation, Leela. As I have pointed out many times on this forum, Saudi Arabia is the main center of Islamic fundamentalism. Billions of dollars a year are given from the “House of Saud” to Sunni Muslim causes worldwide, whether it is to build a mosque or fight the Americans in Afghanistan. The West does nothing because if they go after Saudi, oil prices will increase exponentially. After Iraq invaded Kuwait, the Americans got scared Saudi would be next, hence the Gulf War. The second Bush took it one step further – to eliminate Iraq altogether.

        Saudi Arabia is backwards in every sense. Public beheadings, females unable to own property or drive, women forced to cover up in public. Meanwhile, behind closed gates, the Saudi Royalty is enjoying liquor, foreign women, and luxury cars. One must ask how a place like Mecca can be within such close proximity of this kind of hypocrisy. Unless one takes Islam for what it really is – just another patriarchal Abrahamic philosophy designed to keep women in perpetual slavery using the excuse of a non-existant moon good.

        By the way, Muhammed did not just destroy idols. He took captives and executed many of them. He added captured women to his harem. One must question the level of brutality here.

        Apart from the opportunity to attack Islam, what does your vicious comments have to do with Fashion Bug? It is obvious that you come here like other pro Israeli trolls and Islmaphobes to poison these blogs with your Hasbara lies and misinformation. Before you congratulate for such inane comments, let me point out to others here that your bigotry is obvious, when you attack only one religion.
        Others here have the decency to respect other religions and not keep attacking one, pretending others are perfect. What you do here is despicable and ugly.

        Bruce Feiler writes that “Jews and Christians who smugly console themselves that Islam is the only violent religion are willfully ignoring their past. Nowhere is the struggle between faith and violence described more vividly, and with more stomach-turning details of ruthlessness, than in the Hebrew Bible”.[8] Similarly, Burggraeve and Vervenne describe the Old Testament as full of violence and evidence of both a violent society and a violent god. They write that, “(i)n numerous Old Testament texts the power and glory of Israel’s God is described in the language of violence.” They assert that more than one thousand passages refer to YHWH as acting violently or supporting the violence of humans and that more than one hundred passages involve divine commands to kill humans.[9]


        Stop casting stone, when you live in a glass house.
        Your ignorance is exposed in the hatred you display.

          You have to refer to an ancient book to make your case? What a joke. Can’t find an example from real life? You should explain why your Taliban brothers in Afghanistan did not let girls go to school, or even go outside the house without a male relative. Ask Bruce Feiler to help you.

            Zing. Glad the truth hurt. You can dish out, but too wimpy to take it. LOL.

            Why does an article by Wikipedia about violence in Judaism, agitate you? A “Sri Lankan”?
            You insult Islam but oh so sensitive about Judaism.

            You and your fellow Hasbara here have been quoting misinformation from old books, but now that you got it back from a credible source showing the Quran is NOT the only book with violent in it, and not from the Geert Wilders book of bigotry and islamaphobia, which you seem to be a proponent of,
            you just cannot stand it. Deflection and insults do not make up for lack of substance.

            We do not care a shekel about the Taliban, we are in Sri Lanka..

              If the Al Qaeda in Afghanistan come to Sri Lanka – like they went to Libya, Syria, and Iraq – Sri Lankan Muslims will definitely support them. It is your duty to support jihad, whether jihad takes the form of violence or not.

              Fight them until there is no [more] fitnah and [until] worship is [acknowledged to be] for Allah . But if they cease, then there is to be no aggression except against the oppressors. (2:193)

              In other words, fight and kill until the unbelievers are all dead or convert to Islam.

              And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al- Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers. (2:191)

              The answer is simple – Lester says he is not a buddhist. He is in fact a Zionist Jew trying their usual practice of causing confusion and religious discord.

          Like his illustrious father the present foreign minister of India was involved in the rights of Muslims in UP but as soon as he was posted to the ministry he forgot his religion that gave him the position- from tip cut to nalli cut.
          Sri Lankan Muslim leaders have shown the same spirit.

      The Muslim occupation of Mecca was virtually bloodless. The fiery Khalid bin Waleed killed a few people at the southern gate and was sharply reprimanded by Mohammed for doing so.

      (The Great Arab Conquests)

      Eight years earlier Muhammad had left Makkah as a fugitive with a price on his head, and now he was entering the same city as its conqueror. His manner, however, bespoke not of pride or even of exultation but of gratitude and humility – gratitude to God for His mercy in bestowing success upon His humble slave, and humility in the contemplation of the vanity of worldly glory, and the evanescence of all things human.

      The Prophet rode into the precincts of the Kaaba, dismounted from his camel, called his cousin, Ali ibn Abi Talib, and both of them entered the Kaaba, cognizant of the Divine Commandment to the Prophets, Abraham (Ibrahim) and Ismael:

      …and We covenanted with Abraham and Ismael that they should sanctify My house… (Chapter 2; verse 125)

      The Prophet and Ali found the House of God (Kaaba) in a state of defilement; it had become a pantheon of 360 idols, and it had to be sanctified. The Prophet knocked down each idol as he read the following verse from Qur’an:

    Political dualism is Rajapaksha Govenrment’s policy. On one side MR is projecting him as a democratic leader and envisioning Srilanka as Glory of Asia but on the other side GR under his iron grip running a dictatorial rule where the Law enforcement authorities are being used as mere eyewitnesses for the atrocities perpetrated against minority communities.
    MR, in most of his public addresses, reiterated that the future Srilanka will not have majority/minority divide and there will be only “Srilankan” without any ethnic divide. This major policy change has some deficiency while phrasing the terminology. It should have been a Srilanka only with “Srilankan Budhist” instead of “Srilankan” and MR has entrusted his brother to implement this by first using his military forces to crush the LTTE and after 4 years by using hid Buddist Biukku based outfits to crush the innocent muslims by grabbing their right to exist and next his target will be Christians.

    I don’t suppose our racist moral police are going to do anything about this:

    Reported in Colombo Page today, 10 April:

    “Apr 10, Colombo: Chief Government Whip Minister Dinesh Gunawardena told Sri Lanka parliament that children have been recorded as the most victimized where sexual abuse and rape were concerned.

    The Sri Lankan government says that a total of 3,859 cases of rape and sexual abuse have been reported in the country in 2012.

    The number of child rapes had been the highest at 1,759 as opposed to rape of women which was recorded at 330.

    Gunawardena has made this statement in repose to a question raised by JVP parliamentarian Sunil Handunnetti.

    A total of 1,194 cases of child abuse had also been recorded in 2012 while 547 children and 29 women had been sexually harassed during the year.

    Right activists say the actual numbers could be higher as some incidents go unreported due to fear of reprisal from the perpetrators and social stigma.”
