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.

      If you love Sri Lanka. And all of her diversity. With all of your heart. Today is a good day to shed a tear for your country.

      But, shedding tears will not cut it.

      Where is the leader we long for? Who can lead the charge to chase out corrupt, power-hungry, racist, uneducated rascals of Hambantota back to jungles around Mattala airport. Where they can board flights to eternal exile.

        The yellow robed pariahs and their acolytes responsible for the attack on this cloths store must be arrested and tried in open court for destruction of property, incitement to racial hatred and causing public disorder.
        It is the DUTY of the owners of Fashion Bug to take the mob leaders to court and hold them accountable rather than covering up (like the unprincipled liar Rauf Hakim does) the crimes of the Balu Sena and the Rajapassa regime that is its patron.

        As we all know DIVIDE, DISTRACT, DESTROY CIVILITY, AND RULE Lanka is the Rajapassa endgame and this must be stopped, and the barbaric regime held accountable for its crimes against minorities in Sri Lanka.

      Sinhala mobs attacking minorities with the Police standing by letting it happen. And the Police would only stand by if they had orders not to interfere, probably given by Gota and his mad goons, needlessly stirring up inter-ethnic/religious violence. Un-fecking-believable.

        Now you know who created the fertile ground for LTTE to thrive and destroy everything that was civil.

          It was Ranil who signed an internationally mediated peace agreement directly with Prabaharan. He could have used the fire power as used by Mahinda to maim the LTTE but he did not do because he was not prepared to kill thousands of civilians in the process of wiping out the LTTE.

      Ben , do not bring LTTE and Tamils in to this. The Tamils took arms to defend and protect themselves from this kind of attack since 1948. You better recall the riots 1956 and how many after that to the scale of mass grave and genocide of Tamil. So do not blame LTTE and Tamils. The monks , sinhalese and their politicians used LTTE and Tamil issue for their vested interest. The west, China and India used it for their geopolitical benefits.So do not bring this LTTE and Tamil issue in this matter.

    The alegation was against a rape incident where the Victim was a Buddhist girl and the incident had happened in the store room of the Muslim owned shop by and accused is a Muslim worker.How can a web site like yours give a judgement as who is wrong before court decides it.Answe my question.

      If something like that did happen, it is up to the police to arrest whoever the person responsible with the raping incident. If the monks or a group from the public can break into a business place and destroy things, why would we need the police or a legal system?????? Didn’t you read the article? It said the security cameras did not prove that a raping incident happened within the store.

      Bonny have good look in the mirror so your judgement is attack is justified on the account of a allegation of rape.Remember Russia under Stalin and then Serbia,Ruwanda,Germany & closer to home Cambodia under Poll Pot they all have one thing in common they went after the own citizens.Sri Lanka wont have the same ride because Muslims got very powerful allies around the world China will pick whats good for them and it’s not going to be Sri Lanka just because some say its Wonder Of Asia.

        where are they now? What did the government, Sinhalese and law do for them? are they national heros?
        When the Tamils say this they are terrorists!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, even if they try to defend them.
        you better recall another act of crime? the sinhalese criminal ( from the prisons in south) were given AK 47 to call them as home guards in order to colonise and terrorise the Tamils area!!!!!!!!!
        It happened in Trincomalle and Batiicaloa, still happening with the help of criminals without any one resisting forces!!!!!!!!!!!!
        see both sides and be fair before saying loving Srilanka.

      Yes, you stupid moron, its for the police and courts to decide whether or not a crime has been committed. The website is not passing judgement, but apparently the mob was!

      Brother… There is no such incident happened over there. There was a rape near to the Fashionbug. Thats something else and not even 15 years old girl. You guys will believe almost anything said against Islam and Muslims. Ope both eyes and see… “Thum paarak kela gahala tahamai muslim minissu hotelwala non muslimlata kema denne… oba beepu thea koppeth kela paarawal wetila ethi” oka wiswaasa karapu ayata meka loku deyak nemei.

      Initially monks will spread a wrong information… Attack a shop or Mosque… then when the real information unfolded, they have already done another great job attacking a Mosque or Shop… Now you have a new news to talk…you will forget the previous incident and start commenting your side using just one eye…

      Previous false allegations such as lacing of toffees and lingeries with special chemicals, at No Limit have not been proven true and this one is another mischievous plan. Even if it were true, nobody has the right to take the law into his own hands and such drastic action is not justified. A similar attack on a church by so called fanatical buddhist monks was perpetrated with ulterior motives.

Where are the courts? Where is law?

      Isn’t the police expected to investigate and arrest those who are suspected of any crime?

    I fully understand the sentiments of Muslims in Sri Lanka after this incident. But, please keep in mind, Buddhists like us (those who try to practice Buddhism) will all be with you as long as you do not fall down to the level of these racists who try to provoke you. Continue to hold on to your high moral grounds and choose peaceful ways of denouncing this violence. If there is no justice in Sri Lanka, there should be some justice on this planet. Be patient.

        However much you want to disassociate with these saffron clad thugs you will always be a Sinhalese.

      What these thugs do is not Buddhism. In Buddhism you are advised not to harm a fly. So what these uncouth idiots are doing are against their own religion and philosophy. I agree the Muslims though constantly provoked have shown they are better than these mutts and goons, and it is going to be hard not to retaliate.
      It is up to the majority in Sri Lanka to band together , condemn the violence, expose the evil elements behind this, and insist the spineless politicians clamp down on this out of control mob violence.

    One way to try to top these or open their eyes of these fools is to insult and bit physical abuse to a SL Buddhist monk in Australia or other country (or some layman wearing saffron). Video it and send to SL media. We can apologize the monk later and explain him the good KARMA he has done.

        Riza,
        I agree.
        Most monks behave as taught by the Buddha,but a few vociferous ones have been used/corrupted by politicians.
        When monks became politicians,the rot set in.
        This happens only in sri lanka.

        Agree 100% Riza. We too have good practicing Buddhists who are close friends. They are ashamed of their clergy and fellow adherents. But a mob has no decency. They become animals and when monks are involved, the situation is hopeless. What sort of people are taking to robes any way? We won’t see monks of the ilk of Ve. Haraispattuwe Ariyawansalankara or Ven. Muduluwawe Sobhitha to name a few. These monks are indeed VENERABLE. Can we say the same of the current bunch who spread falsehood and lies about other human beings?

    Sri Lankans of every religion should hang their heads in shame. What have we allowed our country to become?
    Land of thugs, goons, and a bunch of idiots, who have been ordered to attack a store belonging to a Muslim because of unsubstantiated lies about rape. It seems the goons rule this country, and get away with communal attacks. Where is the damn government? Why did they not send the riot police and stopped these criminals. Aren’t we Sri Lankans suppose to get security from our government? Doesn’t the obvious silence show approval for such attacks against other Sri Lankans

    These imbeciles are used as pawns in a vicious game, and they should be protesting the crimes against their people going on in the country, especially the attacks and rape of women, on a daily basis by their own brothers. The Sri Lankan government has disgusted the people by their silence, inaction, and their own corruption. First it was the Tamils, the uneducated mobs could not stand their hard work and success in business, so 1983 saw their stores, shops and homes being attacked. Now they have been brainwashed into turning on the Muslims. Those who instigate this are just hoping the Muslims would retaliate but let’s give them credit, they have shown amazing restraint, and show they are the better people.
    Sri Lanka is fast becoming a third world country with unruly mobs, communal attacks, and an impotent government.

    One wonders where the Muslims politicians are today. They seem to have disappeared from the scene, and are not speaking out loudly for their people. It took a Tamil politician to stand up in parliament and denounce these racist attacks. The government is bringing this country down by not clamping on communal problems.
    It seems they have not learned from lessons of the past.

    Most of the monks are good , thre is a handful that upsets the relationship. But this handful is powerful. Now we understand that there was a rape case a few doors next to Fashion Bug. He is in custody. But Sri Lanka is the land we love is full of rapists and child abusers.
    This was a total misunderstanding. Unfortunately Fashion Bug has to pay the price

      No one has the right to the the law into his own hands and attack anyone or their property. This was just an excuse. The evidence we see are videos of rogue monks inciting the people with hate speeches in Kandy.
      That alone is evidence that this unfortunate business Fashion Bug was targeted for a while.
      Yes, most of the Buddhist monks are good, but unfortunately the saffron robed thugs who incite and turn idiots into mobs seem to have a stronger voice, and get away with violence, in our country. Shame.

    This is exactly what I predicted when Herd about this formation of BBS.
    I predicted why Gotabaya Rajapakse formed BBS was for three reasons.

    1)To re-direct and re-focus peoples and International community’s attention away from Rajapakse robberies and towards this racist cult so that it give them a short and long term breathing space and to get relieve from public scrutiny.

    2)To save Rajapakses from any majority or minority Peoples uprising or as a cover from an armed coup.

    3) To seek cover behind BBS from International communities war crimes tribunal.

    Therefore BBS is Rajapakse Proxy cover-up army to save them from both local and foreign uprising.Whichever way, it is the ordinary citizen that going to suffer and suffer miserably.

    Rajapakses using this Radical BBS as proxy could backfire on them also similar to SWRD Bandaranaike.Every Business including Drug or Kasippu business deals end up in tragedy.

    Meanwhile all minority communities have to unite and be vigilant and face this Mafia on a foreward but with a patient footing. Sending these video clips to international viewers is a necessity.

    May be MARA GOTA palying their last Tango. Let’s see how long this GOTA/ MARU BALA marriage going to last.

    The Rajapakayas know that the majority of the Sri Lankans voted for General Fonseka but through various “jilmarts” and by threatening and promising various perks to the then Election Commissioner, the results were announced the other way round. So, the regime knows that their days are numbered and this is the only way to continue to be in power by hook or by crook and by winning the hearts of the majority community. Most of the rural and undereducated lot who form about 80% of our own community would be happy to see that the minority communities are attacked and also if the USA, EU, NGOs, etc. are attacked. To be in power, these criminals have to satisfy the majority even if the country goes to dogs. They are not worried about what the international community thinks about our country as long as they can be in power. They are also looting the national wealth to the maximum in case if they are ousted then they have enough wealth for a few generations and also buy Opposition MPs and even the supporters of the Opposition members. Gen. Fonseka’s strategies were to win the war but the strategies of these criminals are to be in power by destroying all those who oppose them. Also, they know that these unofficial forces will support this rogue regime if there is an uprising like in the Arab States. Our country needs a COMPLETE CHANGE with a GENUINE LEADER or a group of leaders who are against corruption and who are very loyal to the country. If this trend continues with the blessings of the biggest contract killer in Sri Lanka, the colourless waters of our rivers would change to blood red.

    You have planted the seeds of hared in the hearts of mobs and now you see the consequence of this hate campaign. Now BBS will come out to say it is not us but it is only mobs. Police, Security force and politicians were watching at all what has been happening around the country. because of their complacency we see this. This will bring disaster to nation and consequently all country will suffer. I think that this is started because of lack of interest by politicians to apply the laws equally. Tamil Nadu is boiling out to come crush Singhalese and these stupid people want to justify that right now that singhaelse are against minority: you want to tell that to the world and Tamil Nadu. In Tamil Nadu already LTTE have started their struggle once against. When they come this time it would not be 30 years of war but they will finish all these racists monks and mobs within few months. 74 million Tamils in Tamil Nadu waiting for a time to come and crush these mobs: Today at this time Srilanka needs more peace and more friends than enemies but yet, these racists monks: This all started with BBS racing talk and open hate. These monks should be punished first and these mobs should be taken to courts and we have hundred of evidence to prove that these anti-Muslim activities.

    Sri Lanka sadly has most of the time , being a country which has been snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. it is the duty of the government and the law enforcement authorities of a civilized country to enforce the law and bring the culprits to book. The President and the IGP keeps muttering their mantra about treating all communities on an equal footing ,but ground realities are far different. If these provocative incidents continues and the peaceful majority continue to be silent without condemning the unruly and violent among them specially those who are supposed to lead ( rogue elements of the Maha Sangha), then days are not far off when the social volcano will explode and the consequences will be far worse than it was in pre 2009 period. It is time that all peace loving people of all communities should stand up and show the red card to ‘racism and communalism’ and peacefully protest against the apathy of the government and its’ law enforcement arm, before rioting is thrust upon a victimized community. .

    These type of incidents never happened before, but only after Rajapakses came to power. They started feeding these homeless hicknellas with roast poke and roast cow and made them fat pigs with endless DANAs, and now the Testosterones gone to Brain. Nothing could be done until Rajapakses leash them back and give strictly Vegetable and fruit diet only once a day until they recover and get back to normal life.

    While this attack must be condemned, let me say that many Muslim businesses have a way of doing business that hardly qualifies as fair. Of course, that does not mean such a business should become the object of mob attacks. Once again, the BBS thugs have taken a legitimate issue way out of proportion.

        Everyone knows what these business practices are. I do not need to name them there. But just to be sure, I will give one example since you asked: it is well-known in the Sinhalese community that Muslim customers are most likely to frequent Muslim businesses establishments (out of loyalty or whatever other reason) when it comes to doing business.

          Yes you need to name those unfair practices. If you accuse someone you need to prove it, simple as that, besides how is that an unfair business practice? it is the discretion of the customer. There is a Sinhala saying for this “natanna bari minihata polawa adaylu”

            @ Citizen and Others,

            For your information, there is an electronics shop on the top floor of Liberty Plaza that sells faulty electronic goods. Guess who the owner of the shop is? :) That is correct. Now, what is worst about this shop is that many of the goods are sold at dollar value . So, if you buy electronics from this shop, you are likely to lose a minimum of 6000 rupees ($47 USD). Obviously, it’s great business for the owner. He is not making 10 or 20 rupees extra by inserting liquid into chicken; every customer he cheats means a revenue of several thousand rupees. These are the kinds of scams that our *friends* engage in. Luckily, I only got caught to this scammer once, but I am sure he is still there.

Most Buddhists are not the BBS, they are not thugs, they have condemned these acts of violence, and recognize the despicable BBS and their ugly actions.

        The question is what is the government doing to help citizens who are the target of hate and violence?
        For not to clamp down on this dangerous activities, is silent consent.

          “They who imagine truth in untruth and see untruth in truth will never arrive at the truth.”-
          When a man speaks or acts with ill-will suffering follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the bullock that draws the wagon.”

          So either heed these words from the Master or you will soon suffer. Benefit from it and do not behave like the proverbial pig not knowing the worth of the pearls in front of it.

      What is wrong is wrong, whether it is committed by a Muslim, Christian, Hindu, or a Buddhist. There is no “right’ wrong or “wrong” wrong. People justify their bad behaviour by hiding behind their religion as a excuse. even though the religion say otherwise.

      Buddha warned us: “One tree makes a million match sticks, only one match stick need to burn a million trees”.

      Now BBS, has become that match stick that burns.

      Lester,

      You say…….”Muslim businesses have a way of doing business that hardly qualifies as fair.”

      Please let us know what type of things they do that are against business ethics.

      Muslims are born traders and are the least burden to our Govt. and economy. It is they who oil our business Industry.

      Also if you could let us know how Tsunami donations were robbed, how huge taxable goods that pass through Customs without paying Taxes are been cleared…….and only last week 40 million rupee illegal ethenol imported by pissu Jhonny got caught but still no case been filed.

      Who is running and monololise the Casino Business, Drugs, Ganja and Kasippu business and Brothel business with imported prostitutes…which is a 100,000 Billion rupee business.

      Who is running the Black Money Colombo Stock Exchange…..

      You Know My Brother In Law had to give up his Distribution Agency after 30 years as a distributer to a leading company, due to HEAVY TAXES BEEN IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT. AFTER PAYING ALL THE TAXES HE IS LEFT WITH NOTHING. IS THIS THE WAY GOVT. HELP PEOPLE TO DO BUSINESS.

      What these Govt. Crooks doing is to Kill our Business Industry and to Monopolise them under Rajapakse Goons and Croonies.

      THAT’S WHY RAJAPAKSES COLLAPSED GOLDEN KEY, ACQUIRED APOLLO HOSPITAL, SHELL GAS, HARRY JAYAWARDENE’S AND DAYA GAMAGE’S SUGAR PLANTATIONS AND INDUSTRY AND MANY OTHER HOTELS, PROPERTY AND BUSINESSES.

      THIS IS NOTHING BUT RAJAPAKSE DICTATORIAL MAFIA AND AUTHORITARIAL STATE DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY USING RACIST TERRORISTS WORST THAN VP BBS.

          Once again utter rubbish. Go to Udayagiri Supermarket behind Campbell Place in Borella and ask who the majority of his clients are. Go to the Maradana Market and there are many grocery stores. Ask who is Upul Mudalali and ask him who the majority of his clients are? All Muslims whilst there are Muslim groceries not far from them. These mudalalis are honorable sinhalese folk who cultivated the business with good communication traits. Upuls store is all sinhalese since they are all his relations. Udayagiri employs many tamils. My friend and Muslim neighbor in the jewelry trade has 52 employees, 51 of them are Sinhalese – all though this might change if BBS declare it illegal for Muslims to employ sinhalese. Thank God I have such honorable Sinhalese friends who have opened their doors to me and my family if and when Lester and the BBS start their impending pogrom.

    Terrorist VP was removed and replaced by another terrorist. Sri Lanka will soon require another terrorist to remove the current one. It will go on and on like this as Sri Lanka has never learned from past mistakes. Ultimately it will take someone with the attributes of Lord Buddha to make this country right where fear is a thing of the past and equality in its true essence reigns. Meanwhile the meek will have to endure idiots, imposters, tyrants, sycophants, megalomaniacs, despots and other such cream of scum.

    Every Buddhist person I meet condemns acts like these. A Buddhist friend of mine informed me of this incident and said that these acts are and insult to Buddhism. Upon hearing about it, I Googled it and came across this article.

    All religions promote peace. People who do acts like these have no love for their religion, children or society. We all want a peaceful mother Lanka for us and our children to live in. I was grateful to the Rajapakses for ending the war is some way. Now they are jot taking action for what could lead to another war. And now, if this leads to another conflict, then all the effort, all the youthful lives lost, will be in vain.

    Our soldiers who lost life and limb will rejoice from their homes and graves over the fact that their selfless commitment in the civil war ended with fruitful results. Let us join hands at least for their sake.
