Muslim Parliamentarians Forum Wants Action Against Gnanasara For Blaspheming Allah

courtesy Foreign Correspondents' Association of Sri Lanka Facebook page

Twenty-one MPs representing different parties have come together under the Muslim Parliamentarians forum to demand justice for the Blasphemy of their God Almighty Allah by Buddhist monk Galagoda Atte Gnanasara.

This is the second time the Muslim parliamentarians have banded together to protest against government inaction. The previous occasion was when 16 of the 18 MPs signed a petition to President Mahinda Rajapaksa. MPs A H M Azver and late Abdul Cader of Kandy refused to sign the Aluthgama petition claiming it was politically motivated.

We publish below the letter sent to the President by the Muslim Parliamentarian forum:

    When will we ever learn that racism & bigotry is always used to divert the public from a major economical catastrophe ?

    It amazes me how our Sri Lankan people hue and cry about religion & race ,( all citizens included) , does anyone really try to even think that it is more important to find-out the economical situation of the country ?

    Do they not feel the impact of the loss of buying power? The struggle?

    Are thy not interested to find out how much of money we owe the world? and how much is needed to run the country and try to spend time to learn the situation in a simple way as possible ?

    Unbelievable the time people are willing to waste on petty racism and bigotry and worry about one race going to over take another , damn it we do not even know if the world may even last that long, one nuclear war and the end of story .

    And even worse we are not sure if we can survive the current international economic crisis, with a bankrupt empty treasury.
    what happens if w end up like Greece tomorrow ? anything is possible be prepared . we all may even end up on the pavements , that is the reality of the country is in now.

    What wonders can be done if people unite ,have discussions and try to help each-other and without becoming a scapegoat for politicians try to support the government and country in these difficult times .

    W are not like other nations we are a 100% literate people and intelligent, when will our people of all races & religion realize it is time to terminate this cancer of fake hypocritical love for race & religion that has ruined this beautiful nation once and for all ?

    When will people learn to question politicians when they promise to bring them rice from the moon ,to explain how?

    When people are selling Public assets ,people should ask for explanation why and at the same time when the opposition is opposing it which is always the case with all our oppositions, question them the their alternative for the problem.

    Please stop wasting time commenting in future on racism and bigotry , the truth is no one loves no one , not people of their race or religion.

    Everyone loves only themselves that is the bitter truth.

    If anyone is making a noise in the name of religion and race , it is only due to insecurity and the fear of loosing the willing Milking cows , the fear of loosing the free and easy Luxuries .

    finally socialism and Democratic mixed style governance too have failed .

    It is time to think of a autocratic Chinese model , and ban all religions for a set period of time , if people want to pray let them do it at home.

    Enough of this nonsense ..

      Economical disaster? , Empty treasury ? , sold out, ?? Who cares about when the Politicians IQ is ZERO%. That’s the last in the mind of our Country MAKERS .
      Our country is put at Ransom against the Religions and Race.

      Since the Independence the country had been the stage for Boxing in the name of Race and Religion.
      Who cares about the country’s economy , while the MONEY LAUNDERING goes on under the Noses of the Parliamentary Bigwigs and the Parliamentary Bigwigs themselves , how can you even mention about the word Economy of the Country.

      That word will fall on DEVIL’S EAR. This country is heading for DISASTER.

      While the Majority Modayas mindset is Programmed not as you expected it , FAHIM K ! In fact it’s Programmed to SWINDLE THE STATE WHILE PROMOTING AND KINDLING RACIAL FLAME.
      Hope this explains why the word has not meant to be important among the commentators.

        So many Muslim MPs in a small population ! this is a evidence of they practice racism even on voting systematically,. or faking the population count ..
        We were not even aware that Muslims had edit our SL law to abuse children via child marriage and divorce using religion values,. which put other religion girls in to trouble as Muslim boys do target and marry other religion girls and convert them.. to get Alla’s blessings,. later forcing them to obey the Islam law,. too many cases registered…

      The Chinese model failed in misery. There is no economic prosperity without social justice. Sadly Sri Lanka’s political structure is built on a weak foundation and as a result the Bhikkus are on the path to destroy Buddhism under the watchful eye of the past and present Rulers.

      Just yesterday I happened to meet a friend of mine from former Rhodesia-today s Zimbabwe.
      There we happened exchange a lot which we thought could be much similar to what we the srilanken were about to face under the Leadership of
      Srilanka s becoming Rober Mugabe.
      Please watch the Video below
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKbARZktqLY

      So that you could get more.
      I know it was white minority regime they had before RM came to power.
      But today, it has been all looted nation within their black communities.

      Had SRILANKAs MUGABE -Mahinda Jarapskshe been given his 3 rd term, we would have been marching to a state similar to present day Zimbabwe. No doubt about that.

      Those men intoxicated by power can ruin everything.

      Now you will raise the question why I add the thoughts here where Ghanasara aggressions are being critisized.
      Ghanasara or any other Ampitiye ballige puthas are closely working with Rajaakshes – is in our first hand evidence.
      This country has enormous potential to become a progress nation.
      But if people would be abused by MR et the manner being fallen down with extremist thoughts, we will loose everything.

      The day – this ballige putha Ghansara- proved srilanken FRANKESTEIN is hung for all what he has done to this nation – the beginning of reconciliaton of the nation.

      The message he is sending out is so abusive betraying gentle sorta of majority Srilanken buddhists.

      I think it is high time MOST RESPECTABLE MAHANYAKAs to make it very clear if not today when ?

      Mr Fahim, Sir,
      Your comment is open and sincere but we need the current situation to increase so that people will forget their everyday struggle to cope with the ever rising cost of living. The government talks big but have done very little ( in slang it means that loud and long fart but no shit). To camouflage these sortcomings the government must be funding some of these activities to divert the attention of the people.
      At the end of the day we can plainly see that all politicos are crooks with only one ambition, which is how to build castles and amass wealth to their kith and kin.

      As has always been we the voters will continue to choose either UNP or SLFP
      JO and JVP on the lower side and again we will choose the same crooks and get the regulation standard screwing.

      Don’t waste your time giving advise instead use your time to screw others like our politicians who screw us and the nation as well.

      Fahim – It is sad to see few crack pots like Gnanasara and the idiots who follow him are flaming racial hatred in our society – these man Ganasara is openly insulting Buddha teaching – I certainly believe majority of Buddhists in this country will not share his views – what I do not understand is neither Gov. nor the Nayake Theros take action to stop this idiots insulting other religions – I am a Roman Catholic by birth — I strongly believe God has no religion, therefore it is not difficult for me to see all believers of God are brothers – At the same time I have lot of respect for Buddhist philosophy and often listen to Preaching and try to understand Buddha teaching to understand the realities of this world,

    Yahapalana. Minister Hezbulla says the Muslim youth will take up Arms soon.

    Tamil National Alliance.s Armed Wing carried Arms for three decades.

    This BBS Gnanissara must be a softie..

    He never said Sinhala Youth will be Armed..And still being called a Racist,Extremists, who is going to eliminate Muslims.

    Is he the Super Man or a Norwagean trained Rambo?…

        You worry too much for no apparent reason.

        You have your own BBS/BJP,
        You have your own saffron clad thugs
        you have your navy commander,
        you have your Gota the national alugosuwa,
        you have 300,000 under arms,
        you have your own thugs at every nook and corner,
        ….
        ….
        ….

        Why do you worry when you have a million men who can take care of everything.

      You are no Muslim that is why you wrote your name as Nana. There is no such word or title called Nana in the Tamil language. It is Nainar, a title usually given to Tamils belonging to the Jain faith but could be also used as a title to show honour or respect to Tamils belonging to other faiths. Eg Nainar Marrickar. Giving honour to members belonging to this Tamil Muslim Marrickar family. Even now in certain parts of Jaffna a person of high standing is addressed as Nainar.
      Only some idiotic person who does not understand the Tamil language will keep of insulting and calling this person Nana instead of Nainar.

        The kind of men s pedigree cant be proved thorough modern DNA tests. Nor can anyone see any good reason as to why the buggers in robes live their perverous set of agendas this way. One thing is clear Ghanasara as any thug we got observed in this society, will not live long. My problem is not his being, but his misguidance to lanken youth.
        One victim is already made clear to the public – that Dayanprasad or someone who got arrested after Ghansara et al threatened for a blood bath lately, on his Dayan s return from Police, he made it very clear, he was just abused by BBS and like extremists.

      “Excellent speech by

      Yes, excellent speech, and he believes that stupidity is a virtue, and Sinhala “Buddhism” is a virtue.

      What else can you expect from a Monk who came out of Paras with an average IQ 79? Plenty to choose from and ordain. Recruit them when they are young, as Samaneras,, sexually abuse them, and brainwash them to make them Stupid and believe in myths.

      Is Sinhala “Buddhism” an Insult to the Buddha? Or Is it only Mahawamsa, that is an insult to the Buddha?

    Whatg is muslim population in Sri lanka.

    there are so many parliamentary well fare receitpients in Sri lanka to represent Muslims. It is the same with Tamils. Why don’t they reduce the number of parliamentarians.

    then they don’t have to seek attention at the expense of Sinhala buddhists.

      i agree they should reduce the parliamentarians. one MP should represent each province, except: north, east, central and western provinces. These provinces should be represented by 100 MPs/province.

    Honorable Galagoda Atte Gnanasara asked some clarification about quran and they failed to do that and says We are Racist,Extremists.

    every body have right explore the knowledge and no religion can stop that in the name of god.

      Everybody has the right to research and find out about anything, but it is a decent thing for any human being, especially one pretending to be a good Buddhist, to respect other religions, speak no evil about other religions, and to shut their loud mouths if they know nothing about other religions. Shooting off your mouth to insult and attack another religion, when you know nothing about it, is not only idiotic, but can have serious consequences.
      The majority in this country do not agree with this troublemaker. If he wants to learn about other religion, he should find scholars to explain it to him like a gentleman, not act like a thug who lies about that religion and the people.

      This man is not honorable in any sense. People who follow his direction and movement, are not thinking straight, are insecure about Muslims, and only going to hurt this country when their is another war, which is what he wants.

      Yes, he has asked for clarifications. Your Honourable Galagoda has on numerous occasions given distorted versions and meaning of Islam and the Quran. His mentality is to keep on insulting whatever the explanations or reasons given. Also has he any recognized status in the Buddhist community to call for clarifications or explanation . It could be understood if the Mahanayakes or similar person who has some status wanted it. Why should anyone oblige Gnanasara. Gnanasara has been accepted as an ‘dishonest and unruly’ character. Only a few Buddhists who are emotionally moved by his antics follow him. It is the unwillingness of the Govt. to deal with him according to the laws of the country which is disappointing. Gnanasara is a poison to the whole country.

        yes for you and every muslims live in lanka venerable gnanasara may be biggest enemy as he is the only person who disclose malicious intentions of muslims here. if you visit eastern province you can see that. muslims destroying all the buddhist heritages and building cities like in saudi arabia.they do not have respect or care for ancient civilization built by our ancestors. like ISIS do in syria they want to destroy all the ancient civilization, archaeological sites and built arabic civilization here.their ultimate goal may be to make their god doctrine reign here as well. that may be the reason for mixing some drugs birth control ones with food items they sell to sinhalese like in UK muslims adding their own feaces to chocolate cakes they sell to english customers.

          What a load of crap. Just like the hamuduruwo who said Muslims spit on food three times before serving food to customers. Warped minds. They don’t realize the damage they are doing to their own people through rise in alcohol and drug consumption, the bars and prisons are filled to capacity, spending from what they earn in race-by-race gambling dens, pawning their wives and daughters to Arabs and European homes, thus neglecting the security of their own families and leaving them torn apart forever. They have so much shit on their own heads that they cannot even see it let alone realize it. Instead they plot and plan the downfall of others who are unlike them. Pure jealousy to see another community thrive. To this effect they try to deceive the masses through imaginary unsubstantiated and concocted claims against those who follow a very disciplined religion and lifestyle, who regular in their religious observances, totally abstain from intoxicants, and who place much concern on family values.

            As a pious muslims lying and deceiving of non believers or infidel is priscribed for you by your god via your holy scriptures.it is until you get stronger and stronger to fight them.“Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them. Know that God is with the righteous.” Quran 9:123

            that we know very well.Even you all are prescribed eating infidels or non believers flesh though you all never disclose them. in your holy book.8;55 described infidel or non believers as velest beats at the sight of your god. that means for you as well.then “I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers.” Quran 8:12 why cut off finger tips either to suck out blood for drink or make it halal meat suitable for your consumption.

            how come non believers can praise such demon god.how come non believers can trust such god followers.this will provide reply to your allegation of jealousy and all. tell me as law binding citizen of the country, can you accept such utterances of your almighty.

        The Islam of these politicians is a mere label. Azwer and Abdul Cader included. There are many
        who are drawn to Islam with the action of these bigots, who are better than these M.PP.
        To hell with Gnanasara and all the Muslim M.PP, who will finally be together in Hell.

    OMG! so many Muslim MPs ?? with very small population!
    ether they are systematically not voting for others.. direct form of extreme racism put on practice,. or they are faking the total population count and senses was a trick Muslims did in other countries to avoid issues on over taking a country and coveting it in to Islam state,. like Malaysia, Indonesia, Palestine (state), Kashmir (state), Afghanistan, Pakistan ext,.

    We never knew there are so many Muslim MPs in SL parliament :/
    I truly was not aware that they have amended our Lanka Law with Islam law to allow Child Marriage (abuse) and divorce in Islam style,.

    It looks like we are innocent and they are working on a v.good plan.
    when few of our ppl woke-up and asking questions!!! they want to shut us down,. politely today and ISIS style tomorrow once they get the 50% ++ population.. like Syria and Iraq or today Bangladesh..

    We muslims know what happened to Firoun. He killed all new born male children to prevent comming of Prophet Moses. Finally, Beyond his concious prophet Moses was raised and cared inside in his palace. Who thought with 2/3 majority in parliament MR will be out of office 2 yrs before end of his 2nd term?. MR demonstrated his arrogance and created communal hatred and destroyed the opposition, attacked probable emerging leaders to be in power for ever. Finally, MS came as a candidate from his own times party to contest against him. Similarly, there were some people during Prophet Noah and Prophet Hud’a era who challenged then prophets and the our CREATER despite Reminder after reminders inviting them righteousness path . In QURAN you can find what happened to such people . So my message to these Muslim MPs to leave Monk Gnanadara alone one day he will taste the response for his fallshood, ignorent, arrogance and insults towards Islam an GOD. Already he experienced Jail life, was humiliated by his own community at last parliamentary election and other action will follow

    Talking ill of Muslims is a shame.
    Thousands of Sinhala Buddhist are living in the Gulf countries earning a living for themselves and for their families and also contributing to the much sought after foreign currency funds of the nation.
    These overseas wage earners can say more about their experience in these countries than those who talk tat for their own prominence.
    Our nation is following the footsteps of Myanmar which has now become the scorn of the international community. The nation is in tatters by the promotion of
    radicalism and religious extremism. This is the first sign of disintegration
    of a country.
    Sacrificing a faith to create disharmony and mayhem is the beginning of the end
    to that faith.
