Poet Jazeem Detained To Frame Hejaaz Hizbullah

Tamil Poet Ahnaf Jazeem was arrested and detained by the Criminal Investigations Department in order to frame a case against Attorney-at-Law Hejaaz Hizbullah, Colombo Telegraph can reveal today.

Hizbullah a famed Lawyer was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department on the 14th of April 2020. Initially he was arrested on claims that he had phone calls from the suicide bombers.

However, within weeks the claim was diverted by the sleuths.

Thereafter the Criminal Investigations Department took into custody children aged 8 to 13 during the latter stages of April 2020 and coerced them into making statements against Hizbullah.

The children had been taken for 3 days without parental supervision and were questioned by the CID for over 12 hours in detention.

Immediately upon statements being obtained the CID leaked the story to the media. Local newspapers on April 29th 2020 splashed contents of the statements across the newspapers and televisions during the following days.

However, 4 students filed Fundamental Rights applications before the Supreme Court citing torture and coercion. Immediately thereafter the CID took two children before the Fort Magistrate in order to provide a confession.

The contents of the said confessions were also splashed across the media on the very day they were given and the day after.

Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake the the sitting magistrate of Colombo Fort told open Court that officers of the CID had attempted to walk into his chamber and show pictures of Hizbullah whilst he was recording the confession.

On July 1 2020 he said “I had to chase them away” after which he ordered an investigation into how statements made in confidence to him and kept under lock and key were leaked to the media.

“It is an intrusion into Court process,” he said in his order.

Lawyer Hejaaz Hizbullah

During this time, the CID had also visited a building located in a Land belonging to Save the Pearls. Poet Ahnaf Jazeem a Tamil literature teacher had housed himself in the building which was rented to another organisation.

Within the building the CID found a book of Poetry titled Nawarasam- a collection of poetry spanning many themes. The sleuths in their hurry to fabricate evidence against Hizbullah obtained further statements from students of Jazeem in order to implicate him.

Reports filed by the CID seen by the Colombo Telegraph make clear inference regarding Jazeem and Hizbullah and attempt to draw a nexus between the duo and use the book of Poetry as evidence of concerted extremism.

The sleuths thereafter obtained a warped translation of the book and according to sources had taken the poet to his hometown in Mannar.

The poet was promised release by the CID if he handed over copies of all the books currently in circulation and accordingly a message was relayed over the mosque loudspeaker to residents to hand over every copy of the book.

Analysts of the case say that the action of the CID was in order to bury any evidence of the book and to continue the fabrication of evidence against the two.

The Poet Ahnaf Jazeem and Attorney at Law Hejaaz Hizbullah continue to be under custody.

Indictment has been filed against Hizbullah on the strength of a statement of one child who was taken into custody by CID.

The bizarre case of Jazeem was a result of the CID scraping to fabricate evidence against Hizbullah. Sources say that Jazeem was also forced to make a confession and it unclear if he has done so yet.

Sources close to the CID speaking on the condition of strict anonymity said that “we were given no option but to fabricate evidence” against Hizbullah.

“We told them time and time again that innocent people are caught up in the mess,” sources said.

      This is absolutely shocking. As is the detention of Hejaaz.

      Sri Lanka has no right to call itself a democracy if this is how it behaves. Such behaviour by its police services belongs in brutal dictatorships.

    As further evidence, the mid-twentieth century scholar, Hamid Abdul Qadir, in his Buddha the Great: His Life and Philosophy (Arabic: Budha al-Akbar Hayatoh wa Falsaftoh), proposes that the Prophet Dhu’l Kifl (The Man from Kifl), mentioned twice in the Quran as patient and good, refers to Buddha, although most assert him to be Ezekiel. According to this theory, “Kifl” is the Arabic rendition of “Kapilavastu,” the Buddha’s birthplace. This scholar also suggests that the Quranic reference to the fig tree likewise refers to the Buddha who attained enlightenment at the foot of one.

    The Tarikh-i-Tabari, a tenth century reconstruction of the early history of Islam written in Baghdad by al-Tabari (838 – 923), speaks of another group of Indians present in Arabia, the Ahmaras or “Red-Clad People” from Sindh. These were undoubtedly saffron-robed Buddhist monks. Three of them reportedly explained philosophical teachings to the Arabs during the first few years of the Islamic era. Thus, at least some Arab leaders were aware of Buddhism before they extended Islam beyond the Arabian Peninsula.(Buddhist-Muslim Interaction: Umayyad Caliphate )

      Westham,
      .
      I could not keep a straight face reading that delusional comment of yours. 😂
      .
      I’ll make it simple for you, there is no mention of any prophet who relied on begging his people for food (as all prophets of the Abrahamic faiths are shepherds) and no mention of a prophet who ate human flesh both of which are applicable to buddu, if we are to take the word of terry hamus, if not then we can agree that buddhism is not a religion and never meant to be until it was hijacked by a group of political hamu thugs who wanted to use it to further their own polical and financial benefit.

    Rajapaksas and the military under them are experts on fabrication of evidence to meet their requirements. How wonderfully they created by creating Saharan into their pockets and made use of him to completely turn the Sinhala community against Muslim community since 2009. Easter Bombing is the peak of the process and planning of one family and military servants of that family. They are also now using Muslim politicians to go against Sinhalese in the Port City development Bill to give this land to China. In other words it is Muslim politicians may be behind the arrest of lawyer Hisbullah.

      Agreed.
      .
      Post war sri lanka could have been a second Singapore truly !!! But because of the greed of one family and the stupidity of one majority population this island will never see equal prosperity again. Don’t get me wrong those (Tamil, Muslim, buddhist) in the “right” places will get extremely wealthy off the back of ignorant sinhala buddhists.

      Ajith,
      “Easter Bombing is the peak of the process and planning of one family and military servants of that family.”
      —-
      You guys suffering from ‘Defeat-Syndrome’ are trying hard to convince the readers that Rajapakshes planned and executed the Muslim terrorist attack on Easter Sunday to come to power. If that is true, why the hell ‘Jadapalana’ Government allowed Muslim terrorists to go ahead with suicide attacks after receiving prior warnings about the attacks. Do you think ‘Jadapalana’ Government wanted to help Rajapakshes to return to power after sending them to Medamulana in 2015?
      You guys also keep on repeating that Rajapakshes started discriminating against Muslims after defeating Tamil terrorists. If so, why the hell they wanted to sacrifice their lives to bring Rajapakshes to power?
      Use your brain before using the keyboard.

    Good Job CID. Arrest all who attended the Muslim University. Interrogate one by one and watch how they will snitch on each other. Then you have your evidence to put them away for a long long time.

      Shameless Perera

      You are an ideal example of the security forces you represented. It is easy to imagine what war crimes you would have resorted to. You have the audacity to use your title and say the things you said here.

      Are you really anti-Sri Lanka? Or Are you an Eelam supporter, by talking about things you should dare not talk about? You must be an LTTE sympathizer taken the displayed name ReginaldShamalPerera pretending to be from the Sri Lankan military and blurting out things no one will dare say that will clearly bring shame to Sri Lanka and the Sri Lankan military.

        Pakistan and Bangladesh are our good friends. We have nothing against them. I have nothing against even the Muslims from 20-30 years ago.

        The issue is with the present day Wahabi rif-rafs. Then you bombed us. And you raised your hand against the wrong people.
