Muslims Reject Outright Call For A Muslim Province

By Latheef Farook

“Dismissed with outright contempt”. This was the common response of Muslims all over to Sri Lanka Muslim Congress Chairman Basheer Segudawood’s demand for a separate Muslim Province.

During a discussion on the proposed constitution in Kattankudy on Saturday 20 February 2016 Segu Dawood had said Muslims cannot give up their demand for a separate Muslim Province.

As rightly pointed out by former Information Minister Imthiaz Bakeer Markar in a television interview this was a totally outdated and unwanted demand irrelevant in the current highly communalized political environment.

The government is taking numerous measures to bring about some degree of harmony among communities in the country. People in general welcome these measures. At a time like this Segudawood who started his political career with EROS before joining SLMC coming out with a demand for separate Muslim Province is suicidal for the Muslims living scattered all over the island.

Muslims all over the island were furious. They were swift in their condemnation as such a demand in the current political environment could only fuel the ongoing racist campaign against Muslims.

Memories were still fresh in the minds of Muslims who were brutalized by defeated president Mahinda Rajapakse regime which ruthlessly employed racist elements to unleash well organized violence against Muslims. Segu Dawood was an integral part of this very same Rajapaksa regime which persecuted Muslims. The question is why didn’t he raise this issue when was with Rajapaksa regime?

Slamming Segu Dawood over Muslim Province demand SLMC’s founder M.H.M Ashraff’s son Aman said that his father’s mandate was solely for a united Sri Lanka, undivided by any means. He added that;

Mr. Dawood had said that the SLMC’s stance was that the Muslims need a separate Province and the SLMC late founder too had endorsed it. In a letter wrote direct to Segu Dawood Aman requested Segu Dawood not to distort historical facts for his personal benefit.

“During the early course of his political voyage, Mr. Ashraff said if and only if, the Tamils of Sri Lanka were granted a separate state,then it is only fair that the Muslims of Sri Lanka also be granted one as well. However, his political views had changed over time.

Addressing a gathering of the SLMC High Command and Politburo members at the Taj Samudra Hotel late Ashraf stated that “As a party representing a minority in this country, we have reached the limits of our abilities. If we are to serve the nation and its people at a greater degree, we must then, look to expand our horizons into national politics and aim to define a role for ourselves within. Thus, he began to devote his career and time exclusively towards the formation of the National Unity Alliance (NUA) a pluralistic political entity whose mandate was solely for a UNITED Sri Lanka, undivided by any means.

You know this well, because you were one of the few who did not agree with this new and rapidly evolving political vision of Late Ashraff, which is why he did not appoint you to the High Command of the NUA. He was well aware that you lacked the political maturity then (and still do now) to realize that a divided nation will forever be a defeated nation,” thus concluded Aman.

I was flooded with phone calls and e mails by both individuals and organizations alike ever since this report appeared in the local media expressing alarm at the demand. Here are their serious concerns.

One pointed out that Muslim politicians especially from North and East should stop talking of Islam and Muslims as they had brought enough disrepute to Islam and Muslims by their immoral and wheeler dealer politics for personal benefits.

One should not forget that the Muslim community en masse voted for President Maithripala Sirisena in the 8 January 2015 presidential elections on their own and on the advice of any politician.

Muslim community had paid a heavy price for SLMC’s corrupt politics. Ridiculous state of affairs is such that SLMC which came with the slogan of Islam and Unity is divided into more than half a dozen groups. So much so the SLMC leader was dispatched as salesman this month by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremsinghe to Turkey to promote Sri Lankan tea.

Under the circumstance beleaguered Muslim community cannot allow politicians like Segu Dawood to continue their out dated proposals which has all the ingredients to damage relations between Sinhalese and Muslims. Over the years today the SLMC is a discredited party and SLMC politicians managed to get into the government only due to a deal with the United National Party to enjoy positions and perks and not to serve the community .

In a letter to Bahseer Segu Dawood one Muslims said “you are frustrated person as you were not being nominated through national list by your leader Rauf Hakeem.  Separate Muslim province for what? Create more corrupt Muslim politicians? he asked.

    Great. The majority of Muslims have spoken, and now let this ridiculous proposal be put to rest. Those who keep harping on this are simply causing problems for other Muslims, clearly the minority, and do not have the intelligence to think this through. Let this multi religious nation be unchanged, and the majority in this country be tolerant of the minority.

      Yes. Still plenty of Sri Lankan Muslims left with Common Sense.

      The Satan-Iblis following Wahhabies and Clones will have to depend on the bottom stupid scum of the Sri Lankan Muslims. Fortunately, they are in a minority.

    Might as well. Imagine when we all enter heaven one day – (some even into depths of hell) !

    A bevy of virgins wait for us at the heavens door. They take us to the orgy room.

    There will be formally christians, hindus and jews in there too in all kinds funky karma-sutra positions.

    How will you deal with the situation? Will you refuse to take the gear off because you lived in a Moslems only state before?

    I recon the small time you live on planet earth get used to live with different people as much as possible. That will prepare you for the orgy room with the 70 virgins.

    Thank God that COMMON SENSE has prevailed!

    Sri Lanka is far too small for fragmentation. Why restrict oneself to one part of the country, when you have the whole beautiful garden of Eden to enjoy.

    Let US Sri Lankans of all colours, shapes, beliefs (and none) live together in peace and harmony. Respect each other like brothers and sisters.

      What better advertisement for our UNITY than St Sebastian’s Muslim Maha Vidyalaya down Belmont Street – just a wig’s throw from the Attorney General’s Department and the Court Complex.

      St Sebastian was one of the earliest martyrs of the Christian Church and was put to death by the bad Romans (say ‘boo’ everyone).

      Belmont Street is named after Sir James Belmont who was Colonial Secretary in Ceylon, 1845-49.

      Some people think this island should be ruled by China.

    Thanks Latheef, a very good write-up to drive the point home. We Muslims are much better off under this RW-MS led government than the previous regime, who was out to make us second class citizens subservient to the majority community purely to fulfill their ill-conceived political aspirations. They were following the misleading mirage that Myanmar experiment was gaining momentum and would succeed. However, the people of both countries with strong minority support gave a fitting response which turned tables on their ill-planned maneuvers to send them into oblivion. As of now, we are enjoying the peace and living in relative calm alongside our Sinhala Buddhist neighbors, friends, employees and employers, in spite of the occasional hiccups like the Sinha-ley episode on one side and BBS antics on the other. Thankfully, these are met instantly with utter contempt and scorn by the majority of the good people. This confirms that a majority of the people reject the racist and bigoted attitude towards Muslims by a selected few of their clergy members. Another assuring factor is that as long as this government is in power the Muslims can rest assured that they will not be wantonly provoked and attacked, instead they can live in relative calm and peace. Now we don’t want to upset that balance and lose that trust, do we? We have absolutely no reason to yearn for separate state, unless of course if the Tamil people are gifted with Statehood, in which case it will be nothing but fair that Muslims too get their fair claim to a separate Federal State under a united country. I don’t think that will ever happen, and I neither support such should ever happen. It appears more like a leadership struggle within SLMC by Sego Dawood jumping the gun. This may be a flimsy excuse that RHakim isn’t doing enough to enforce his hold on the Party leadership, instead is pandering to the UNP leader and neglecting his own responsibilities.

    How come the author is certain that Muslims have rejected the separate state concept outright?

    There has been no referendum or even a poll to suggest that this is true.

    The Muslims should demand a separate state for it’s 5% but ever growing population with a 2/3 of the island.

    The 2/3 demand may not be justifiable at the moment for their 5% population, but taking into consideration the growth of that population, even 2/3 land mass may not be enough.

      “The Muslims should demand a separate state for it’s 5% but ever growing population with a 2/3 of the island.”

      Can you produce your comparative analysis to support your assertion that Muslim population growing while rest of the population is stagnated?

      For your information

      Muslim population increased 452 % from 1871 to 2011.

      Whereas Tamil population grew by 352% and Sinhalese by 751% for the comparable period.

      I suggest keep your paranoiya to yourself.

    The curse of Sri Lanka.
    Its six years since Sri Lanka put down Tamil Separatism,
    Now Muslim Separatism is emerging. with the help of foreign hand?
    BBS seems to be teaming up with Rajapakse faction

    Did the Muslim, whose mother tongue is Tamil, make a grave mistake by not supporting the Tamil Separatist movement. The muslim politicians were kept in check by Cabinet posts and they did not care for their community.

    If the Muslims had joined hands with the Tamil separatism the Separatist movement would have survived the war and prolonged to the present day.

    The situation today is interesting , as in addition to the China factor there is also ISIS factor

    Who knows the IC would have taken a different stance and supported a province for Tamils/Muslims a merged NE

    If there was one mistake that the Late ASHRAFF committed it was taking on board Basheer Segudawood,a guttersnipe from Eravur-Batticaloa district.

    It may be interesting to probe how he has made his money.
    I was told that he had joined the EROS,JUST TO KEEP AT BAY THE MANY PEOPLE FROM HE HAD BORROWED MONEY.
    No one would have approached the EROS,an appendage of the LTTE then to return monies borrowed.

    Though,in the Muslim congress ,he will sell not only the Muslims,but even his mother to receive a Cabinet portfolio!

    Segu Dawood is a nut case. As a muslim, I definitely don’t want a separate Muslim province. Tell Segu Dawood to go read the Quran – the Quran is all about unity, Segu Dawood is all about separation, therefore, he’s an enemy to Muslims and unity of Sri Lankans.

    Many Sinhalas are of the view that those Muslims, like Lathief, who are against a Muslim “province” are merely saying that they should be aiming for the whole island.

    It is simply a matter of not diluting your evil objectives, but working towards the maximum by deception and trickery asper the quranic teachings.

      Someone said that the majority race are a “majority race with a minority complex” Why should the Sinhalese have such fears I just dont understand.. The Sinhalese should be proud of their uniqueness as Sri Lanka which they inhabit as a majority is the only country that speaks the Sinhala language. Isnt that something to be proud of? This bogey has been introduced by the communalists and its great to note that Sri Lanka with a literacy rate of 90 percent so the majority race shares the largest share of it did not fall pray to the cry of the communalists as the last election which did distinctevely show. The Sinhala race should work hand in glove to advance this “heaven on earth” with the other minorities so prosperity could be enjoyed by all who inhabit this island.
      Many of the Sinhala people work in the Muslim countries of the Middle East and are highly respected there except for a few bad incidents of misconduct by certain employers.The Sinhala people there are a happy bunch of individuals reaping the benefits of the petro dollars and also pouring remittances from that region thereby boosting our economy and their dependents back at home.These remittances help to keep the country afloat and thereby the benefit is spread island wide. So why create these false illusions that the Muslims are going to take over this land?

      History records that the Muslims fought along with the Sinhala people to safeguard Sri Lanka from foreign invaders while it is sad to note that some Sinhalese sided with the invaders like the Portugese and others with the British. Even in recent history the Muslims didnt back the LTTE and always stood for an united Sri Lanka.If they had backed the Tigers the history of SL maybe different now.)If you read Lorna Devarajs book “Muslims of Sri Lanka” you will know what I am talking about

    Provinces are demarcated not on the basis of religion, but on the basis of ethnicity and language spoken. The Muslims in Sri Lanka( other than the small minority or Malays and Borah) speak Tamil and are Tamil by ethnicity, their immigrant Indian Tamil ethnic origin has been proven beyond doubt. A few hundred families amongst them having a little bit of Arab from a very distant ancestor does not make any one of them Moorish or Arab by descent. They should be properly classified as Tamil Muslims. However this will never happen due to dirty politics of dividing and ruling the island’s Tamils and the Muslim elite who have successfully brainwashed the Muslim masses to hate and disown their real Tamil identity/heritage, the 1000 year old very tolerant form of Tamil Sufi Islam from India, that they had practiced all these years, worship anything remotely connected to Arabs and the fundamentalist intolerant Wahhabi/Salafist form of Islam from the Gulf. SO they prefer to be called by the incorrect derogatory identification that the Portuguese gave to all sub Continental Muslims. Moors. After the Moors who ruled the Iberian peninsula and the only Muslim people that the Portuguese encountered, prior to their travels. So every Muslim they met during their voyages became a Moor.
    Historically and legally there have never been any Muslim land province or rule in the island. From ancient times,the Island had only historical Tamil and Sinhalese areas and Tamil and Sinhalese rulers. No Muslims lands or rulers. The North East and parts of the North west coast has been recognised as Tamil lands and the rest of the island Sinhalese. This is evidenced by many ancient historical writings, then the Portuguese, The Dutch and The British, All Sri Lankan governments ( until the Rajapakse era) the International Indo Sri Lankan agreement signed in 1987. In all these ancient medieval colonial era and modern era documents, there is no mention of historical Muslim, Muslim lands and provinces. As they had never existed. Despite 70% of the island’s Muslims living amongst the Sinhalese, I presume the demand for the so called Muslim homeland/province will in the east, as they will dare not demand for Muslim homelands or province in the Sinhalese areas but think they can get away with it in the Tamil areas, as they feel the Tamils are now weak defenceless with no one to protect them. So easy to steal their lands from them. This is the reason the nasty politician from Mannar was very busy settling thousands of out of area Muslims in Mannar and Muslims politicians and officials in the east with the help of the Sinhalese armed forces were busy grabbing Tamil lands, especially in the Amparai area. All basically to steal and ethnically cleanse the Tamils as much as possible with the help of the government and Sinhalese armed forces and then claim an exclusive Muslims province or homeland in these ethnically cleansed Tamil lands.
    How can an immigrant community from South India that largely came here on wooden boats called Marrakallam in Tamil fleeing persecution and then given refuge a few centuries ago, now start claiming home lands and provinces exclusively for them, tha talso only is historical Tamil areas only, when around 70% of them live amongst the Sinhalese. This is like Pakistanis and other Middle Eastern/North African Muslim immigrants/ refugees asylum seekers in Britain and Europe claiming exclusive Islamic homelands for their ghettos in Europe.
    The Tamils are still the largest single community in the east and the east is their ancient historical homeland and they were the outright majority in all the district in the east until hundreds of thousands of illegal Sinhalese were settled in the late 1950s 60s 170s 80s and 90s in the east. Largely in the Trincomalee and Amparai districts. until 1977. Trincomallee had two Tamil MPS and one Muslim MP now only one Tamil MP and very soon it will be none. The fate of the ancient Tamil Hindu population in the Kalmunai, AMparai. Pootuvil area with its very ancient historic Murugan and Siva temples is very precarious. This large scale Sinhalese settlement annexing Sinhalese areas from neighbouring Sinhalese districts to the east to deliberately increase the Sinhalese population in the east and taking many Tamil border villages from Batticaloa and annexing them to Sinhalese Polonaruwa had all made a major dent to the ancient and historic Tamil majority in the Tamil east. Later during the war thousands of Tamils were killed and ethnically cleansed and chased away by the Sri Lankan armed forces, Muslim home guards and the Sinhalese settlers. The Tamil population in the east reduced to 40%. This had resulted in the Muslims in the east, who only came there a few centuries ago as refugees powerful, they started to form alliances with the illegal Sinhalese settlers to gradually get a stranglehold in the east and constantly denying the TNA that individually gets the largest amount of votes in the east form the government. The Sinhalese short sightedly thinking that they are checkmating the Tamils who are the real owners of the east and marginalising them in their own lands, have now let this fundamentalist Muslim genie out in the east and made them a powerful force and are now blinking. These Dravidian Tamil Muslim immigrants from South India had a long term plan and had cleverly used the situation in the country the marginalisation of the island’s Tamils to their advantage in Colombo and in the east and were trying this in the north too but was thwarted by the LTTE but are still trying to, using nasty Muslims politicians from the Mannar area. They have the funds and backing form certain Gulf states to create an exclusive, Wahhabi/Salafist style Islamic homeland in the east and most possibly in the north too. Go to Kattankudi in the east. It is a hotbed of Wahabbi Islamic fundamentalism. You will think that you are in Saudi Arabia and not in Sri Lanka the dress of the men the fully covered females, the name boards in Arabic( why Arabic?) The ancient Tamil Muslim culture and dress form all gone within a generation. Damn good for the Sinhalese and India for trying to marginalise the real owners of the east the Tamils and helped in their killing and ethnic cleansing and are still doing so. Now they can deal with this Islamic nightmare at their door step. They helped to create this by making them powerful and are still doing this.
    This cry of many Muslim writers about the 50000-70000 Muslims who were chased out of Jaffna by the LTTE should be resettled is just lies and crocodile tears. No one is stopping them from resettling other than the Sri Lankan Armed forces and their own Muslim Politicians. The LTTE has not been in control of Jaffna since 1995 and what stoped all Sri Lankan governments or the powerful Muslim politicians, many of whom were ministers in all these governments to settle these Muslims back again? No they did not, were not bothered and it suited their purpose to keep these Muslim refugees wallowing in poverty in Puttalam to get funds for anti LTTE propaganda and to get funds/support from powerful Muslim nations for their anti Tamil anti LTTE crusade that killed more than 300000 innocent Tamils and made 1.2 million refugees. A nasty Muslim politician was made the minister of resettlement by the racist war criminal Rajapakse government and he also never bothered to resettle these ousted Muslims from the north, many of whom now don’t want to return at all, but was clearing jungles, chasing Tamils away and busy settling thousands of out of area Muslims around the Mannar Wilpattu corridor in the north to create new Muslim enclaves. This was again supported by the Sinhalese Sri Lankan armed forces and the Rajapakse government, thinking they are marginalising the Tamils from Mannar. All these Muslims politicians who are busy writing and clamouring about displaces Muslims never raised a word but were mum, s it suited their agenda. They only shout about Muslim rights and displaces Jaffna Muslims when the international community want do something to the Tamils, so that they can sabotage this. They had many opportunities to settle the Jaffna Muslims, who now don’t want to be settled there but did not. They use them to sabotage the granting of any Tamil rights and as a cover to settle thousands of Muslims in the north to create new Muslim enclaves, where they never existed, for future exclusive Wahabbi/Salafist Muslim enclave in the north. One in the north one in the east all surrounding Hindu India. The Nasty Muslim politician from Mannar was the start.

    Bashir Segu Dawood dont rock the boat. Muslims have lived with other communities in harmony for over 1000 years and the Muslims should be grateful to Ranil and the President for coming to their rescue saving them from a communal backlash. So statements of calling for a seperate entity for the Muslims will only be ammunition for the Sinhala extremists.

    Historically there was no America, Argentina or Australia, all these people are migrants and has only a 200 year old history, are you saying the aborigines of these lands should claim leadership or chase the Europeans out, how do you think the world or the UN will react to such a proposal from the aboriginal communities. Think about it.

    Secondly instead of the usual barrage about the Muslim politicians and illegal settlements, why don’t you advocate and push the Tamils in the north to release the illegally acquired lands and allow the Muslims to resettle in their traditional lands.

    You can’t both eat the cake and have the cake.

      This is the man who posted that Tamil language is useless and irrelevant to the island and all the Muslims in the island should forsake their mother tongue Tamil and learn Sinhalese. Say no more speaks volumes coming from a so called moderate man( Sic).
      Tamils in the north and east are living in their own ancient traditional lands. The north and east is Tamils from ancient times never have been Muslim. You sly backstabbers only arrived there a few centuries ago first fleeing persecution in South India and then fleeing Portuguese along the western coast and later Sinhalese persecution from the central parts of the island. It is due to the benevolence of the Tamil Naykar kings of Kandy and the Tamil Vannimannai chiefs in the east that you refugee/asylum seeking, low caste converted Tamil Dravidian backstabbers who were kicked out of South India were settled in the Tamil areas. There is no traditional Muslim lands in these areas. Muslims were not allowed to own any lands in the island until the late 19Th Century. All the lands in the North and East were Tamil lands. You low life backstabbers and the Sinhalese stole lands from us and not the other way around and are still stealing them using the occupying racist Sinhalese armed forces. Every one knows what the nasty Muslim politician from Mannar was upto. Trying to settle thousands of out of area Muslims in Tamil lands to create new Muslim enclaves in the north that never existed, in order to create an Islamic homeland from stolen Tamil land. Stop lying and twisting facts
