Post Easter Attacks: Conspiracy To Demonise & Alienate Muslims – Toxic!

By Mohamed Harees

Lukman Harees

The drama and media circus which surrounded the ‘fast unto death’ campaign of Ven Athuraliye Rathana Thero, the robed UNP MP, outside the Sri Dalada Maligawa, demanding the removal of Minister Rishard Bathiudeen, and two Governors was interesting in many counts, apart from causing grave concern for the  besieged Muslim community. Interesting, because Ven. Thero has shown up after a long silence in the political field; he was in deep slumber, even when the country was engulfed in an existential (constitutional) crisis last year. Interesting that the Thero did not decide to fast unto death if the both the President and his government did not resign and/or answer for the clear lapses in security and failure to take preventive action after receiving precise prior warning of the terror attacks. Interesting, because his political project to exploit the Post-21-04 sensitivities to gain political prominence was clear as Emperor’s clothes to everyone except those who feign sleep. It was none other than his erstwhile Sangha colleague Ven Galagoda Atte Gnanasara who chose to expose him as such, at a subsequent BBS media conference after making a media circus earlier at the site, threatening to cause mayhem and ignite fireworks across the country if Ven. Rathana’s demands were not met. So, is it a battle for ‘Sangha Raju’ title among the grass root Sinhala population? One may ask! Interesting that Ven Gnanasara chose to make his demands on the person who pardoned him arbitrarily (Sirisena) against all legal norms and also seeking the resignation of Governor Salley who visited him regularly and agitated for his release. Interestingly, none of the main political leaders from both sides of the political divide appeared to visit the fasting monk. Interesting that the govt. did not want to use emergency regulations powers to disperse thousands of an emotionally charged crowds with a clear anti-Muslim and Islamophobia agenda in mind. 

To my mind, the joint decision of the Muslim Ministers and both Governors to resign from their posts in the best interests of the country and considering the security of the Muslims, was praiseworthy and was a smart stroke taking the wind off the sails of the political conspirators. It will provide an opportunity to undertake any investigations in the light of many wild allegations being thrown at some of them. The Parliament through a NCM cannot investigate or decide on anyone’s culpability; the law enforcement can. Even Bathiurdeen in a well delivered speech in Parliament, indicated that he is prepared even to face a death sentence if proved guilty, and asked those who are calling for his blood not to kill the dignity of his community in the public domain. Although the opinion about the Muslim political parties and politicians has been by and large adverse, this joint decision earned much praise from within the community. Even the decision of the Muslim political parties to keep away from shady corrupt deals during the October 2108 Constitutional crisis too was admired. Whatever it may be, in these nasty political games, the Muslims are being used as a football, demonised and alienated for the inhuman acts of a fringe group they condemned and disowned at every turn. This approach is risky business for a country attempting to recover from the wounds of a 30-year-old war and recently from a terrible terror tragedy and hate attacks which have been posing immense challenges for national reconciliation and to build an inclusive Sri Lanka. 

In the Britain’s context, Lady Warsi, a former Conservative party chairperson, in 2011 said; ‘Islamophobia has “passed the dinner-table test” and become widely socially acceptable in Britain. Terrorist offences committed by a small number of Muslims should not be used to condemn all who follow Islam. Those who commit criminal acts of terrorism in our country need to be dealt with not just by the full force of the law. They also should face social rejection and alienation across society and their acts must not be used as an opportunity to tar all Muslims. Islamophobia is Britain’s bigotry blind-spot’. Does it ring a bell in Sri Lanka too?

When the ISIS wreaked havoc on innocent people hiding behind religious labels, they had a clear plan in mind. As Arie Kruglanski, a professor of psychology at the University of Maryland who studies how people become terrorists, says,’ to provoke communities to commit actions against Muslims. Then ISIS will be able to say, ‘I told you so. These are your enemies, and the enemies of Islam.’ Extremist groups feed off of alienation, some counterterrorism experts say, and Islamist militants deliberately aim to make Muslims in the West feel isolated and turn against their own communities.’. In the Western context, Jocelyn Bélanger, a psychology professor at the University of Quebec in Montreal who collaborated with Kruglanski says, ‘When people feel a loss of significance, when they are humiliated, that propels them to join a radical group. Attacks escalate tensions between Muslims and non-Muslims. They already lead to some anti-Muslim activity and probably provoke more. Not only will these events make Muslims in the West feel marginalized, but they will also provide extremist propagandists with examples of Western oppression. As a society if we are to move forward, we will have to stay united. If we become more self-centered, if we exclude and alienate minorities, we play right into their hands.”. Again how relevant indeed to our local scenario?; if  only the rulers wake up and reflect! 

Sectarian violence is not new in Sri Lanka. Former Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew said in his book, From Third World to First: ‘In 1965, we had 20 years of examples of FAILED states. So, we knew what to avoid – racial conflict, linguistic strife, religious conflict. We saw Ceylon. SWRD Bandaranaike’s promise to make Sinhalese the national language and Buddhism the national religion was the start of the UNRAVELLING of Ceylon.I was surprised when, three years later, he was assassinated by a Buddhist monk. I thought it ironic that a Buddhist monk, dissatisfied with the country’s slow rate of progress in making Buddhism the national religion, should have done it.Over the years, I watched a promising country go to waste. Sri-Lanka has failed because it had weak or wrong leaders’.

If history is anything to go by, let’s return to Sri Lanka’s not-so-credible track records with regard to ethnic conflagrations affecting minorities; but it has never been seen to the degree that has witnessed during the communal violence of the last few decades. The first ethno nationalist communal violence was directed at not the Tamils, but against the Muslims in 1915. In 1956, the first ethnic riot that targeted Tamils took place in Gal Oya in the Eastern Province.In 1958, 1977, 1981 and in 1983, riots were organised by state patronised Sinhala goons against the Tamils(not the Sinhala community; rather agents of a State using racism as a political tool). Thousands of innocent Tamils were killed. In July 1983, President J RJ’s minister Cyril Mathew supplied armed gangs of Sinhalese with voter lists to identify Tamil homes and businesses. He incited the thugs to hack Tamils to death in their houses, offices, and places of work. Many other ministers virtually condoned these attacks as an ‘expected backlash’. In 2001, in Mawanella riots, shops and property belonging to the Muslim minority were destroyed and a number of Muslims were killed. In 2004, previous Sri-Lankan President Chandrika Kumaratunga gave a public apology to Tamils for Black July (1983 Riot). Not a single person has been brought to justice! Impunity at its’ worst!  

In Post-war Sri Lanka, without going to too much details, Muslims became the next bogeyman. State agents in the form of hate groups exploited the toxic global Islamophobia climate and waged a well –orchestrated campaign against a community which has stood tooth and nail at all times to protect the territorial integrity of the nation. Gnanasaras, Saddhatissas, Dan Prasads, Saliyas and Amiths emerged with support from their political patron saints and their campaigns carefully promoted through dog whistles and poisonous social media hate to demonise Muslims as an unpatriotic lot among the grass root levels of the Sinhala population. What emerged in 2014 and 2108 as hate attacks against defenceless Muslims in Aluthgama and Ampara/Digana respectively under cover of a curfew was deplorable, where state sponsored mobs roamed freely while the law enforcement  authorities looked on or even were complicit. Those responsible were never subjected to any ‘serious’ legal punishments-further examples of blatant impunity. Then, in the Post-21/04, there was two weeks of relative peace, thanks to the sagacious leadership of the Cardinal who calmed the Christian community saying that the Muslims are not responsible for this tragedy and  that the main culprits are elsewhere, as well as the courage of the Army Commander. Then the disgruntled political schemers who were not pleased with the return to normalcy stepped in to exploit the explosive situation to wage hate attacks on innocent Muslims in many parts of the country. This showed the actual intentions of the hate groups- to drive into the Sinhalese mind to consider all Muslims as an enemy and to demonize and alienate Muslims. 

Media and Saffron hate fuelling terrorism basically made the Muslim community a besieged and hated lot, and today, they are being driven against the wall, facing renewed fears and feeling a sense of insecurity, in the light of the continuing impunity crisis besetting Sri Lanka where the authorities have been showing apathy in punishing those responsible for past racist attacks and the continued failure of the authorities to reassure the community and protect their right to practice their religion and culture. It is shameful that the reality that Muslims are more determined than others to dig out the truth and also to weed out these types of extremist Muslim groups, which have brought shame and disrepute to their community, is being deliberately ignored. How they condemned and disowned these deviant groups, cooperated with the authorities to apprehend the culprits and also to bring in laws to avert any recurrences of this nature were clear to everyone. However, thus, just as the community has been rising up-to the challenge and bearing the onerous responsibility to defeat extremism and traces of terrorism which arose from among their ranks, the unpatriotic hate lobbyists and peddlers began to direct all their canons on the entire community at large, making them guilty by association , thus creating a sense of alienation and  marginalization within the community. This is a dangerous trend to say the least.    

Today, fear and nightmares have entered many Muslim households. It is not suggested here that searches or raids should not be undertaken. Rather, what is needed is exercise discretion, fairness and avoid double standards, unnecessary harassments, arbitrary arrests and detentions on flimsy grounds. There are innumerable instances of people being held for the minutest offences, under ICCPR while some are being taken in, on flimsy grounds like possessing religious scriptures and recital books as well as even copies of the Holy Quran. There are reportedly more than 1000 such cases languishing behind bars. Arrests happen on tips given by some members of the public (some of them are  for personal rivalry) and people held without proper inquiry.  The women who wore a dress with a picture of a ship wheel is one case in point. There are cases reported where the religious books held sacred by the people are even being burnt them by them for fear of being arrested for possessing ‘incriminating’ materials. Some Human Rights activists report about Police corruption too, demanding money to release or to visit those taken in. The case of Dr Shafi Siyabdeen was another classic case where he was taken in on no specific charge and then an appeal goes out to the public to file any complaints if any against the accused doctor. This is hilarious to say the least, in law. This case has taken many twists and turns since. Muslim women is being systemically harassed for reason of their attire like Hijab and Abhaya including through government circulars .These are ideal climates and mental states  which provide opportunities for future Zahrans to find their next round of recruitment  for their evil cause. This is what ISIS does and so will their local agents do as well,  in the light of the impunity crisis besetting Sri Lanka where the culprits were given a free reign without fear of punishment to carry out hate attacks against minorities. This happened in the case of Tamil Tigers too.  

Even after those disastrous Digana attacks, Election commissioner Mahinda Deshapriya in a seminar suggested that Muslim hate has gone mainstream. This raised much concern then although saner view was that it was only fringe groups which are involved. However, this view comes into focus once again in the Post 21-04 period and these type of  Media sensationalism and Saffron terrorism fuelled by some rogue sections of the Maha Sangha, without any governmental controls to curtail such hate speech  and media antics is aggravating the situation. It is paramount for the government to take this matter seriously and apply the laws in an equitable manner to deal with hate speech, punish the culprits and to bring about a mechanism to promote mutual understanding between communities. Presidential pardon allowed in the constitution should be withdrawn, as it became a bad joke in the case of Gnanasara Thero, whose post-release conduct shows clear political objectives behind. 

It is imperative that the Muslim community be taken into confidence and considered as part of the solution without demonising their faith and culture and alienating them. As JVP’s Lal Kantha said, the Muslims should be made to feel part of this country which they really are, being inheritors of a 1000+ year old heritage, although Sinhala Buddhists are in the majority. They have proved their laurels in the past. Thus, this insane line of argument expounded by hate lobbies that Muslims are jointly responsible and answer and therefore alienate them to live in subjugation to the majoritarian and supremacist forces pressures is toxic and counter-produtive. They are equal citizens whose dignity should be treated and respected as such, as per the Constitution. Otherwise, it will be sad and pathetic if the moderate mainstream Muslim community be pushed towards extremism as a matter of necessity because of feelings of alienation, which will lead to further polarization and create more Zahrans in the process. This will be a national disaster ,much worse than the Easter Sunday tragedy.

    Mohamed Harees,

    Glad you exposed the truth of Sinhalese Buddhist Nazi-like actions to destroy the minorities – this time the Muslims, complicity of the governments, the State, its armed forces, and the Buddhist hierarchy, who are calling for a “Hitler” to the helm is exposed.

      Thiru,
      Muslims thought they can get special treatment as long as they support Buddhist Nazi-like actions to destroy Tamils. It took seventy years to realise for both Muslims and Sinhalese to realise the danger they face each other.

        If you are going to ban hate speeches and writings, you have to ban Koran first, which says that non-believers are infidels worse than animals, who should be killed and their places of worship destroyed. Are Muslims prepared for that, if not shut up.

          @LP, the 100% accurate absolutely correct comment i have read on CT.
          This stone age racist rag is without a doubt the worst hate speech and perverted teachings ever foisted on man kind. Belongs in the dust bin of history.
          At least now in Sri Lanka an agenda is being created that will allow us to ban some of the stone age racist rituals and practices

            Saurus and Lanka Perera,

            Here is the exact excerpt:

            —————————————————–
            “Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.”
            —————————————————–

          Reading some these comments makes me wonder if there really is a future for Sri Lanka. Any article however balanced elicits the usual dog whistle type responses from the three nationalist groups. Have their positions become irreconcilable and any form of unity and harmony utterly impossible in Sri Lanka?
          I find it hard to forgive Bathuideen for his role in the destruction of Wilpattu, but I find it equally hard to accept that in a democracy one MP can undertake a fast unto death to dislodge a democratically elected representative/executive from a position he was appointed to. Athureliye Rathana began politics as an ultra nationalist, then mellowed and seemed minority friendly for a while before it seems reverting back to form after the bombings. I could not care less for his health and would not have shed any tears if he died at his own hand. But imagine the Sanakeliya [sic] had it happened.
          Most shocking is how people I know who campaigned against the BBS and stood up to unity and minority rights have overnight started posting stuff that is borderline racist. I feel very sorry for decent Moslems who never held any expansionist or isolationist ideas as they have now all been tarred with the same brush. Many small businessmen have lost their livelihoods due to Sinhalese boycots and there is a general suspicion of Moslems that pervades the country. The Sinhalese should think about the long term impacts of this dienchantment on their society and country. Is it worth throwing it all away over a single incident which from all indications are the actions of a small group.
          It is also time for Moslems to change too. Isolationism and expansionism has become common currency among the more orthodox “Wahabi” type followers. If they are lamenting the disengagement of other communities from their community they should also examine their own politics and actions.

    It is Muslims who killed over 300 people and maimed over 400 people. It is muslims who killed two Sinhala buddhists in Digana. When Sinhala people react you say ISLAMOPHOBIA. Riash Bathiuddin and Hisbullah are Anton Balasinghams and they work for the West and for Saudi Arabian agents.

    How shameless?
    /
    These apologists have the gaul to speak of ‘conspiracies’ while they are being caught out left, right and centre!
    /
    All Muslim apologists who use this forum to whitewash their ‘suffering’ lot are nothing but conspiring, lying, deceiving swill.
    /
    They have no empathy with the dead or threatened non_Islamic people, but are consumed by their own selfish tribal plots.

    Mr Lukman, please read the book “Cold War Monks: Buddhism and America’s Secret Strategy in Southeast Asia” by Eugene Ford, Yale University Press (2016).

    Buddhism and Islam are being weaponized by USA to divide and destroy multi-religious and multicultural Asian societies to stop the economic Rise of Asia and make America great again.

    The Easter Carnage in Sri Lanka was masterminded by CIA with Suadi funds and operatives who own an operate the IS network and narrative which is fundamentally anti-Mulsim and Islamophobic. Time that the Sri Lankan Muslim community opened its eyes and started looking at the larger geopolitical picture in which Muslims in Sri Lanka and elsewhere live.

    This fast of Rathana, the polyfaced politician exposed two factors
    1. Gnanasara is mentally unfit
    Thats why he who supported Rathana swollowed his own words and criticized him the very next day.

    2.the two mahanayakes were in a coma for four days.
    Thats why they suddenly remembered after thevfast was over that Rathana did the fast without their permission

    Muslims must be made to feel that they are part of the Country….. How Cool.

    They had Nine Minsters under Dr Ranil controlling 30% of the Yahapalana Governance , Which encompassed every aspect of the lives of our 22 Million Inhabitant population from Health , Education, Highways , Cooperatives and even Agriculture.-

    And nearly all of them Ministers are Muti Multi Millionaires after four years of Yahapalanaya and some even holding up to 3000. Acres of Land.

    Their mates control nearly one hundred percent of the Garment Industry and Clothing Trade.
    And are the sole owners of the largest Fashion Houses in the Island.

    And They don’t feel like part of the Country. ??? Lal Kantha must be on a different Planet.

    With all that Business , Wealth and Political Clout ,these Muslim Leaders knew nothing about Zaharans and Ibrahims..
    Poor things.

    When Aluthgama incident happened Muslims and NGO junkies blamed Mahinda Rajapakse for failing to protect Muslims and sent him to Medamulana and brought Sirisena and Ranil thinking that they will protect Muslims. So, blame these two for failing to protect Muslims after the terrorist attack on April 21st. People should ask these questions:
    1. Why a retaliatory attack after three weeks?
    2. Who were the people really behind these attacks?
    3. Why the Government miserably failed to prevent those attacks knowing very well that there was a possibility for such attacks?
    4. Did some people planned these attacks because there was no large scale backlash against Muslims as they anticipated?
    5. Were these attacks intended to tarnish the image of Sinhala Buddhists?
    6. Were these attacks intended to increase tension between Sinhala Buddhists and Muslims?
    7. Did Muslim politicians played a role in these attacks to divert the attention of Security Forces from search operations?

    Salute you for taking the truth. You have exposed the truth, Please publish this article on Sinhalese newspapers so that the common Buddhist citizens will know what’s going on. So much hate speech, racialism, anti-Muslim campaign going on to the highest level with the support media and few clergy BBS.

    Dear Writer Lukman Harees Can you tell us the difference between sacred hate speeches and normal hate speeches. Your so called holy koran says Nonbelievers are wrest creatures.Some times Vile animals or Infidels. Believing that & worshiping it as your so called Almighty Allah”s revelation to your prophet, how do you ask non Muslims to be friendly with you all. First get it banned and write essays like this. You are just shitting around you and asking others to sweep them & use toilets. Does it make any sense ????????????????????????????

    Lankan Moslems are utterly radicalized, raving, maniacal lot who for the most part, would willingly and without fear carry out the massacre of innocents and commit suicide to kill the Kaffirs (Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, pagans). They are totally convinced that the path to heaven is paved with the blood, gore, and the dismembered bodies of the massacred masses of Kaffir, just like Easter Sunday. However, their worst leaders realize that in order for the day to dawn when they will kill all Kaffirs, they need to engage Taqqia (Moslem deception as expostulated so well in the Qaran) masters such as Harees, who will write mumbo jumbo and distract the Kaffirs and may even win some sympathy for the Moslems. They are looking for another 10 years which is the time they need for the population bomb of exploding Moslems births to make everyone else a minority in Lanka, and the combined forces of sterilization by physician Moslem Devils, poisoning and massacre of Kaffirs to ensure the demise of the Kaffir. As we speak they are stockpiling nerve gas and killer bubonic plague agents in Eastern Lanka, and Lankan politicians are paid off to look the other way. They do no have to smuggle most of these, ISIS has allocated hundreds of millions of dollars to help develop the supply chain to get these items. Some of the world’s most heinous and barbaric massacres will soon happen in Lanka. Since 2014 on CT I have been imploring people to watch out for attacks like Easter Sunday. Everyone derided me as a crazed man engaging in conspiracy theories. I am afraid the Lankans are going to find out very soon how vile and inhuman Moslems are when their water is poisoned, and children start dying by the thousands and people start perishing with chemical agent attacks. For God’s sake, why does no Lankan engages in a critical review of this desperate situation!!!

    We have been through this so many time, so many columnist have highlighted the plight, the law applies only to the majority of the country

    Even the government of the day which has been ruling since 2015 is totally complicit on this matter

    The only way to solve this problem is taking this matter to the international forums, please write to the OIC countries, currently more than 40% of foreign currency required to maintain the balance of payment of the government comes from these countries, if they can freeze the remittances it will have a huge impact on the economy, secondly similar to boycott Israel products campaign, we should start a boycott Sri Lankan products in the OIC countries which again is the main market for Ceylon tea

    Even the OIC countries can lobby and influence the EU and the US to withdraw the GSP benefits to Sri Lanka as well as they big trading partners of these blocks

    If the Muslims countries get together, they can punish Sri Lanka in a very big way and bring them to their knees

    So please start writing to the representatives of these OIC countries regularly and highlight the plight of the Muslims of Sri Lanka as they still seems to think that Sri Lanka is a friendly country

    The Sinhalese Buddhist lot as Robert Knox said is a cunning lot and the only language they will understand is pain and nothing else

    Please direct your energy to where it matters

      You are another stupid Islamic racist. Most of the trade with Sri Lanka is with USA and western countries. Only Muslim countries which are wealthy are those producing oil and employing Sinhala labour. Majority of OIC countries are poor, and have no clout in imposing economic embargo on Sri Lanka. If you think that Sri Lanka will be affected the way Iran is tottering under US enforced embargo, you are sadly mistaken. You should be charged for hatred when you are urging giving pain to Sinhala Buddhists.

      There is no way, ABSOLUTELY NO WAY, to punish the Sinhalese without facing a 1000 times stronger reaction in the opposite direction. In case of an economic embargo by OIC the first lot who will go hungry are the Muslims. OIC will have to open up their immigration doors.

    Sri Lankan Politicians Changed Sinhale Srilanka. Now, address minorities separately and that is wrong. they should say sinhala and it has minorities if not They must say only the Srilankans. Sinhala politicians simply destroy the country. Muslims and International community are destroying using these issues. the best way, if all the 225 or 226 can be voted out and get new ones.

    There is a problem in Islam. It is the spread of radical Wahhabism, financed primarily by Saudi Arabia. I have never seen a Sunni Muslim condemn Saudi Arabia for bombing Yemen to pieces, or tearing Syria apart via proxy militias. Only the Shia speak out, and they are demonized by the majority of Sunni Muslims. The author Lukman Harees goes in circles trying to separate ISIS from mainstream Islam. He misses the central point, which as I have said, are very powerful, millionaire Sunnis in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf who finance terror groups like ISIS, as part of their goal to stop the spread of Iranian influence. BBS and Sinhalese do not have this kind of influence. Until Sunni Muslims are willing to go to the source of the problem, groups like ISIS will continue their acts of wanton terror, giving Muslims all over a bad name.

    How come the moment you have are connected to Sinhala, you simply lie, and expose your stupidity is it in the gene ?

    Check the facts first man, see how much of foreign currencies is coming from which countries? See how much is coming from countries like Indonesia, Maldives, Bangladesh, Central Asian countries, Only you when you starve you will see sense of what you all are actually doing.

    As for you Champa, the Muslims have been going through hell for the last five years so starvation will not add much to their sufferings, but for the majority, it will be a new beginning

    Desperate times require desperate measures

    Put a monkey in a yellow robe…and even they become immune from law, order and justice. Buddhism will bring about the ultimate downfall of the Sri Lankan identity. These rabid monks are like the Mulahs in certain Middle Eastern countries.

    Sri Lanka will never ever learn.
