President Needs Evidence; Listen To This Barbaric, Uncultured So Called ‘Monk’

By Rifai Naleemi –

Who Is Responsible For Racial Attacks on Innocent Muslims in Aluthgama?

Finally, after all these atrocities against innocent Muslims in Aluthgama, President Mahinda Rajapaksa has requested Muslim MPs to produce evidence for the racist attacks. This is a rather sarcastic, mocking request from our President. One wonders, where does our president live?  Does he live in Sri Lanka or on another planet? 

It is self-evident that all these racist attacks are carried out by BBS cohorts following the inflammatory speech of its Secretary General.  Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara Thero has been inciting Muslims for more than two years and he has been insulting Islam and Muslims without any reason or evidence with false accusations and fabrication.

If the President needs any evidence he should listen to some of speeches and talks given by this  barbaric, uncultured so called ‘monk’. He should watch some of video clips of racist attacks on Muslims in Aluthgama. What evidence does he need after more than 300 hundred racist incidents are recorded within last two years? All evidence has been produced to Human Rights commissions at the UN and in Europe. Let him read some of these reports to know what has happened to Muslims for the last two years.

Who should be blamed for these racial attacks on innocent Muslims in recent times? Since 2011 Muslims have been a target of racial attacks from Buddhist extremists called Bodu Bala Sena. They have been provoking Muslim people with vulgar words and utterances. They have used filthy words to depict Islam and Muslims. They have fabricated many unfounded accusations against Muslims for no reasons. Yet, the President cannot see the culprit.

You do not have be a rocket scientist to know the truth about this racist group created by the President’s brother Gotabaya Rajapaksa for his political gain. It has been his dream and long term ambition to become the next President by any means. He uses all government apparatus to gain popularity among Sinhalese people in expectation that one day he would be elected as President of Sri Lanka.  He uses his religious card to gain popularity among people. Racism is his tool and the extremist BBS monks are his henchmen. He has indeed, openly supported BBS and provided them financial support. It is he who provides vehicles and security for these BBS gangs, he opened the BBS office building in Galle, he protected them from court jurisdiction many times.

Judges and law enforcement agencies are prevented from litigating against BBS, since he has asked police not to take action against them. He gave them permission to demonstrate in Muslim areas. He let BBS insult Islam and Muslims. All of this is to gain popularity among Sinhalese voters for the next election, to assure himself of a place in parliament in expectation of becoming the next President of Sri Lanka.

Within the last two years more than 300 hundred incidents have taken place against Muslims across the country; all of them have taken place with the approval and recognition of this so called, self-declared Defence Secretary.

It is understood that most senior SLFP members are dissatisfied with Rajapaksa family politics. Most senior SLFP MPs are powerless today in Sri Lankan politics and they have been made to bow down to the commandments of the Rajapaksa family.

More importantly, a self-declared Defence Secretary controls everyone in the party. This family domination of politics has been agonising for some of these senior SLFP members and they have already decided to teach a lesson to the Rajapakse family. They have been waiting to extract revenge in the coming election and the Rajapakse family knows this very well. This is a ‘do or die’ situation for them as well. In order to allure Sinhalese voters they have created this monster called the BBS in Sri Lanka. I think most Sinhalese people know that well and they are clever enough to distinguish the truth from falsehood.

What happened last Sunday in Aluthgama was a well planned attack on Muslims. Who gave the BBS permission to undertake this demonstration in a Muslim town?  Why do these robed thugs need to demonstrate? This is deliberately done to unleash attacks on innocent Muslims. What crimes have these innocent Muslims committed  for them to be killed in cold blood? What did Muslims do to these thugs to burn down their houses?  This is really a collective act of barbarism by these inhuman mobs. You could say that the LTTE killed thousands of Sinhalese. They killed more than 27,000 Sri Lankan forces. They attacked many Buddhist temples. At least one could argue that there was some reason for wiping out the LTTE because they wanted to divide this small country. What crimes have Muslims in this country committed? Why do these mobs target innocent Muslims? This government is entirely responsible and accountable for all that happened in these attacks. Blood thirsty Gota is directly responsible for all this barbarism. He should be taken to court for his role in this killing spree.

So what should be done now? There is clear cut evidence that all these anti-minority attacks have been instigated by BBS and its cohorts. Now it is responsibility of this government to take some measures to ban this group in the interest of Sri Lanka and Sri Lankans. Bring those attackers to book, produce them in court and punish them accordingly. There should be no hiding place for them. All events have been recorded with video evidence, enabling the Police to produce this video evidence in court.

Recent events amount to brazen robbery and looting. What is BBS is going achieve by burning down Muslim houses and businesses? What do they achieve by creating mayhem and misery in the lives of poor people? It is reported that household items and jewellery were looted before burning down their houses, while the police looked on

The general secretary of BBS should be put in jail for his hatred speech and violence against Muslims in this country. We have recorded evidences of many of his hate speech against Muslims and Islam. These should be produced in court and translated into documents. These documents should then be sent to international Human Rights groups, and UNHCR. The entire world should know exactly what happens in Sri Lanka.

Now people need to rebuild their houses and businesses, restart their life once again. It is the duty of this government to allocate money from public funds to help them rebuild life. Do the perpetrators not realise it is public money that will be spent on the rebuilding process? It is the wealth and resources of this country they have burned down. If they are true patriots of Sri Lanka they would not have done this. They are destroying Sri Lanka bit by bit through these violent activities, and it is economy of our nation that is going to suffer because of the stupidity of these people. Now it is time to apprehend the culprits and mobs involved in this violence.  We hope that the President will act swiftly.

I conclude this article with a quote of Dr Dayan Jayatilleka, who calls upon people of Sri Lanka to be united to wipe out this racist mob.  “The officer corps of the Sri Lankan military, the bureaucracy, the judiciary, the corporate sector, the trade unions, the student unions, the professionals, the political parties, the media, the intelligentsia, the international system (including Sri Lanka’s friends) should all be made aware of how destructive the BBS project is to their interests and should be motivated to oppose and defeat it.  The most effective weapons to stop the march of the BBS are an intelligent patriotism, a reasoned appeal to Sinhala interests and a more authentic, generously inclusive and pluralist Buddhism”.

    The evidence is out their in the social media networks. Failure in the part of the government to prosecute the criminals or the radical Bhikkus will result in severe loss of confidence to the welfare of the country, Restore the bitterness soon or the long term consequences will be fatal.

      The President, BBS, ans its sponsor Gotabaya Rajapaksa and their cronies are liars.

      Evidence does not matter.

      Suggestion: Citizens Community Defense Against Terrorists,

      1. Train local communities and Democratic Citizens in self defense,,so that when the terrorists come to their neighborhoods,the terrorists will be attacked.

      2. Have electronic Monitoring devices in the neighborhoods and workplaces.

      3. Identify, the culprits and our their names,addresses and affiliations on the social media and web sites. Make them the target.

      Let the world know who the terrorists are.

    Sinhala Buddhist ruling elite has taken 66 years to nurture and build a Frankenstein monster like what the Nazis and Hitler created in Germany.

    To its rearing its ugly head against Muslims after mauling Tamils over the years.

    This is the climax of 66 years of Sinhala rule after the departure of the British, when law and order prevailed in good measure.

    Will it end up like Nazi Germany after the war or like former Yugoslavia?

      The radical Buddhist Bhikkus are messing up with the wrong community. Tamils, traditionally were a peace loving people until they drove them nuts in 1983. On the other hand, Muslims will sacrifice every thing they have to preserve their identity. Look around the world; the sheer faith, commitment and sacrifice. The economy will suffer as investors will keep out until their is a regime change.

        Maghribi, I think those who are messing up peace in Sri Lanka is not BBS but Thawheeds/fundermentalists. They have cow down Sufi teachings and traditional Islamic culture in Sri Lanka. Do you Thawheeds not accuse Sufis as Kafirs or dirty unbelievers. Did you Thawheeds not started a fight with Qadiri Sufi order Buhkary Thakiyya in Beruwala and killed two people and injured forty on 25rd of July 2009 in a do or die fight. Tell us, how many and where you have ruined Sufi mosques since.

        Traditional Sufi Muslims understand the core values that can unite Sri Lankan citizens. Unfortunately traditional Customs and rituals of the Sri Lanka Muslims are no more. But Wahabi and Salafi Tawheeds who are trained in Saudi couldn’t care less about unity or Sri Lankan values. Tawheeds want Sri Lanka Muslims to follow extreme traditions of Wahhabis and Salafi.

        You’ll see, traditional Customs and rituals of the Sri Lanka Muslims are no more. Unlike just twenty or thirty years back, Females donned in Niqab and hajjab has become a common sight in our cities. In the back of their three-wheelers they openly display, ‘there is no God but Allah’. ‘Azan’ insulting other Gods would deafen anyone. You’ll see that Tawheeds have succeeded in clamping down Sufism and Moderation and Traditionalism.

        Friday sermons in most mosques have become an expansion for the Wahhabi and Salafi Tawheed ideology. Needless to say, it adds fuel to the burning hearts of young Muslims. They wanted to even look Arab. In that they have even planted date plants in Kathankoody. That’s ok, but ACJU and Tawheeds came up with a stratagem to feed us with nothing but ‘Halal’. They even got a Muslim parent to petition SC to allow their children don in Niqab to a Buddhist school on the strength of religious freedom granted by the constitution. They act as if they wanted to beat the majority Sinhala Buddhists. Tawheeds are testing our limits. And BBS became phenomenal success.

        Tamils in general know you are extremists. So, they too do not like you Thawheed lot. Have you forgotten, Velu slaughtered 150 of your kith and kin while prostrating for issa prayers in Kattankudy mosques and before that chased tens of thousands men women and children out of Jaffna with no notice. What have you done to him? nothing.

    What crimes have Muslims in this country committed? Why do these mobs target innocent Muslims?

    Yes I wonder too. Did you ask your Minister for Justice who has bent over backwards protecting this criminal regime as to why he is attached at the hip with Mahinda while his own kind are at the receiving end?. Did you ask Rishard Badurdeen and his gang of goons who recently threatened a media editor why his goons are not flexing their muscle against BBS?. Mr. Rifai Naleemi you people are in government with the very same oppressors and only chose to question when the same thugs came knocking at your door. Your politicians traveled the world lobbying on behalf of the government in Arab states to gain their support at the UN.

    Now you are wondering why the monster who your people helped groom has started to turn against you the 301st time. It is called “Instant Karma”. Realise it and change for the better. Stand shoulder to shoulder with those who are trying to restore human rights and a live with dignity to all people in that island. You cannot continue to be part of the problem and then demand solutions to the same problems!

      Indeed you have a point. F. Zackariya and N. Shanmugaratnam in their research paper titled “Communalisation of Muslims in Sri Lanka: An Historical Perspective” (can easily be found online) quoting interviews given to Daily news and to the authors by SLMC sources claimed that SLMC has arrogated to itself the role of propagating Islamic values to the community and that if elected wanted to institute Islamic rule. At this juncture it is important to point out an article written by another media outlet in 2007 pointed to the aggressive spread of Militant Wahabism in the East. Furthermore various reports from the Amnesty international faulted LTTE, Sri Lankan Armed forces and the Muslim Homeguards for perpetrating killing against each others communities. For example a 1996 report on Human rights AI accused the sinhalese and muslim homeguards of engaging in arbitrary arrests, torture, disappearances and extrajudicial executions in the North and East. More recently media reports have emerged highlighting the thuggery unleased by a Muslim minister in go

      vernment and his brother against the independent media and the judiciary. Amid this background, the global events and the rapid spread of information means Muslim community in Sri Lanka will naturally be viewed both through the global and local lens. This is all the more reason why Muslim politicians ought to distance themselves from this regime and its machinations rather than hanging on to ministerial portfolios for petty gains.

    “innocent Muslims”?? Can some one define innocent Muslims pls..

    Innocent Muslims are following barbaric cult which destroy peaceful countries. Those innocent Muslims still work day and night to destroy Sri Lanka name of religion..

    Why innocent Muslims were gathered road side to see BBS meeting, What there interest on BBS meeting.. ?

    Who attacked from Mosques.. If you see armature videos on youtube it is very clear that innocent Muslims were planed to attack BBS rally and participants..

    innocent Muslims are not good in fighting they just blind with religious believes,

    Fault on innocent Muslims and innocent Muslim political parties

    People open your brains and see what was happened..

    It was well planed attack by innocent Muslims.. that’s why no muslim minister were there to protect Muslims

        One coward commending another coward !

        They are so harmoniously when it comes to crime. In any other affair they cannot stand each other.

        I though I saw Ela Polla running amok with a polla in his hand like a headless chicken.

        This whole attack is a cowardice act by perpetrators and police. They confined all muslims to their houses with a curfew and like cardboard virao set fire to muslims hoses and shops in deserted streets.

        In the south and allover the country successive governments killed 1,000 of singhala youth, was there a single hartal organized by Sri Lankan Sinhalese to close all their shops/organize a island wide protest at least for day ? NO

        That shows the difference between unity among the Muslim and Singhala community.

        But on the other hand a community where they kill their own parents/ a community who kill their own children or throw them rivers/ a community who rape their own we cannot expect anything better.

        I urge all Singhala Buddhist of Sri Lanka take step back, take a moment and think ! that is if u are capable of doing it ! There is a big hole selected some have realized it and rectified the situation.

          Who attacked Buddhist Monk on Poyaday?? What is Muslims community’s answer for that.. That monk wasn’t BBS & residing same area

          BBS held a Meeting thereafter, What were Muslims Interest on BBS Meeting ? why Muslim were gathered near by road sides? and inside & out Mosques ?
          If they threaten by BBS why they didnt go to police or even to call Hakeem while he was attending to meeting at colombo Town hall?

          Why didn Muslim Ministers rush to Beruwala or Aluthgama as they did before?

          So, Dont cover up you fault as happening all over the world , it’s
          Muslims and they destroy any count they migrated

          Think with your own thoughts, Dont mix up with false information to protect injustice

    “What crimes have Muslims in this country committed” – muslims are world class murderers, looters, rapists and a bunch of thieves who attack monks, sinhalese, destroy temples like muhudu maha viharaya, kuragala, devanagala, vandalise our heritage, sell drugs, sell spoilt medicine….etc

      There is many historical evidence that you come from Bangladesh part of India
      Do you want evidence
      Your language and bangali language are linguistically same :!more than 30% of world of Sinhalese are similar in both language
      Your complexity is same like them
      Your food and culture same
      Even today one could trace your origin from them
      Go and settle them
      Still some Buddhist temple left out there for you
      Go and settle
      All people excepts Vedas are migrant to this country
      This country is not original place of Buddhism
      Rather Buddha was born as Hindi and converted to Buddhism or created Buddhism

      To ela kolla ,
      Excellent reply to innocent Muslim writer, He thinks same as other “innocent Muslims” think, that we (innocent Muslims) should remain on planet and others to be killed as non-believers..

      No difference between Thaliban, ISIS mass killer and this writer, He too spreading hate..

      I dont know how he defines Muslim Town , Oky.. I’ll use his logic..

      I think he defines so called “Muslim Town” by calculating population
      into ethnic wise,So Majority ethnic group living in there is muslims. therefore, according to his theory its Muslim town,

      So, I apply his logic into Sri Laka,
      Majority Ethnic group living i n Sri Lanka is Sinhalese, Therefore, Sri Lanka, Sinhalese country as per this theory..

        Wait until army of Tamils come from south Indans

        Wait already north and easth with Tamils
        Upcountry with Indian Tamils
        With Indian Tamils they would spite out Sinhalese
        You will seek help then from Muslim country against these Tamils.

      Naseeb As you say if your Insah Allah is going to produce evidence I am pretty sure he will produce the idiots who started this whole thing by assaulting the Buddhist monk first, that is if he is a good person. I sometime wonder why Insha Allah is not stopping innocent Muslim women, children and old people killed by Allah’s own Muslims. If that can’t be stopped, do you honestly think any justice will be done for the innocent Buddhist monk who was going to attend a dana on the Poson full moon day?

    How stupid do the rajapaksa’s think we are? They want proof for what is happening here? Is so illiterate that he cannot pick up any publication or go to some website and see for himself the videos and reports?
    Is he out of touch or pretending to be the village idiot? If they are able to silence journalists, threaten them, kidnap them and even kill them, one has to wonder why they are pretending to be so helpless when it comes to the terrorists they nurture.

    It seems extraordinary if the President did indeed ask Muslim MPs to produce the evidence of the wrong doing in this case. Surely, the Police should be asked for that, and there should be no problem for them to provide it.

    I find it also rather brave of Dr Naleemi to state “You do not have be a rocket scientist to know the truth about this racist group created by the President’s brother Gotabaya Rajapaksa for his political gain. It has been his dream and long term ambition to become the next President by any means. He uses all government apparatus to gain popularity among Sinhalese people in expectation that one day he would be elected as President of Sri Lanka. He uses his religious card to gain popularity among people. Racism is his tool and the extremist BBS monks are his henchmen. He has indeed, openly supported BBS and provided them financial support. It is he who provides vehicles and security for these BBS gangs, he opened the BBS office building in Galle, he protected them from court jurisdiction many times.” This are serious allegations.

    One thing that is really surprising about what happened in Aluthgama is how the Police, despite the pleas of Muslim leaders, allowed the BBS procession to go ahead, when it should have been very clear to the Police – as it seems to have been to everyone else – that a breach of the peace was very likely. The track record of the BBS and the incident that had occurred a few days before were clear indications of likely trouble. The Police have a case to answer.

    And by the way, where was the special Police outfit that was recently created to be handle religious problems and disputes?

    Violence is deplorable and its regular occurrence is a constant disappointment.
    However, wherever a sizable Muslim community exists in a non-Muslim country, there are constant overt and covert manifestations of Muslims agitating and conspiring to subvert traditions and culture of the indigenous or the host community. Muslims in the United Kingdom have a Muslim parliament and they are the only community in a country whose record of welcoming and absorbing immigrants although not perfect, is better than anyone else’s. As has been recently dis covered there has been, over a number of years, a sustained secret operation to takeover schools in the UK and enforce Islamic traditions, customs and methods of behaviour.
    Serious consideration of Muslim demands for fairness and justice requires a widening of the parameters of discussion to a global perspective. Such an exercise must take into account the fact that in many Muslim countries it is a criminal offence to practice another religion and in others like Pakistan while being legal in theory its practice may well result in death.
    Violence is deplorable. However, when a non-evangelical philosophy like Buddhism and a non-evangelical religion like Hinduism confront a religion that is hell bent on converting the whole world to Islam, conditions for violence will arise.
    Venerable Gnanasara may disgust the immodest self styled intellectuals in Sri Lanka, but while we deplore violence, his speeches reflect emotions and concerns that those of us to whom our language, culture, tradition and Dhamma are real and living part of life do identify with.

      “However, wherever a sizable Muslim community exists in a non-Muslim country, there are constant overt and covert manifestations of Muslims agitating and conspiring to subvert traditions and culture of the indigenous or the host community.”

      I am bit confused.

      What do you mean by traditions and culture of the indigenous or the host community?

      Those Muslims who call this island their home are not going anywhere. This island is not their host country but their own country and they too have a claim of ownership over this land.

      Are those Muslims living here temporarily on work permit, tourist visa, or business visa. One think you should get right into your stupid head is that Muslims are not Gastarbeiters (Guest workers)whom you think will go back to their home countries. They are here to stay.

      If you don’t like them you go.

      When you go take your racist brethren with you. Your homeland is in South/North India whence your ancestors came. Remember this is not your land but you have been living here on our ancestral land.

      Your stupid people have always expressed your emotions and concerns through mind boggling level of violence.

      “whom our l are real and living part of life do identify with.”

      Why are lying through your keyboard?

      Now tell us what is special about your

      Language,

      Culture,

      Tradition

      Dhamma

      You don’t have a language once the foreign elements are removed

      What is your culture most of its components are imported from North/South India.

      What is your tradition, raging 24/07/52, hurting your own and other people,

      Please teach us Dhamma so that we could also comply selectively with it. It is always good to learn, here is something that you never learned in your life:

      “Go forth, monks, for the happiness of the many, out of compassion for the world… There are beings whose eyes have little dust on them, who will perish if they do not hear the teaching. But if they hear the teaching, they will gain liberation”

      What are those emotions and concerns?

    Who cast the first stone in Aluthgama.

    Starting a debate about Aluthgama riots in parliament, opposition leader, Ranil Wickramasinghe asked how riots started and what business Buddhists monks have in Darga town. Ranil didn’t know that Pathirajagoda temple is located in Darga town and ven. Ayagama Samitha who was attacked by some Muslim youth and then hospitalized on Poson Poya day lives there. In his reply PM said everything but not about the road to Pathirajagoda Temple from Aluthgama town lay a Muslim mosque in Darga town.

    Al Jazeera news said “Riots by Sinhala Buddhist mobs targeting the Muslim population.” CNN says, “3 Muslims killed in Buddhist mob attacks in Sri Lanka.” That was typical of all reporting. None reported how and who started the riots.

    This year’s Poson Poya day had been a fateful day. Ven Ayagama Samitha was on this way to a Bana (sermon), and his vehicle had unexpectedly bottlenecked with a vehicle in which some Muslim youth were travelling. None wanted to back and clear the way for the other to pass. They got into an argument with the driver and ended in a scuffle. The monk was hospitalized and a complaint was made to the police. But the police didn’t apprehend the offenders and that sets a set of events that lead to the mayhem that followed.

    When ven Samitha was checked out of the hospital on the following day, and there was a reception to receive him at Aluthgama town by BBS. After the reception Ven. Samitha was taken to his temple in a procession.

    This widely circulated armature video clip covered a part of that procession for a few minutes. It appeared in CT as well. https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/video-who-started-the-riot/

    To start with, we cannot see any participant carrying any stone like things in their hands or as they were marching ready for trouble. All were walking in absolute calm and quiet.

    Now observe what Muslim elder with a pres-cap in the video clip doing while people were walking by calm and quiet? The said man had raised his both hands to tell or signal someone or many in an upstairs of a side building of something. The way the man was waving his hands, indicate that something is going on in that building and the man was concerned about it and therefore signalled them not to do that ‘something’.

    Continue to watch the clip carefully. Few moments in to action by the pres-cap man, two other men joined him to do exactly the same thing what the pres-cap man was doing. All of them were gesturing upstairs with their hands not to do that ‘something’. After that, I guess, things must have thrown at the procession for then only people in the procession started to throw thing back at where those three men was gesturing to. There had been no report to say those three men (apparently Muslim) were beaten.

    So, the vital question is, who threw things first? Cannot it be here that the first stone was thrown that started the mayhem? Police could easily check on this information and analysis and take it as a lead to expand their investigation.

      When are you racists going to own up your own stupidity? This island has a history of violence, being the majoritarian community the Sinhala/Buddhist have immensely contributed stirring up, provoking and meting out unlimited violence on non Sinhala/Buddhists with the direct involvement of state institutions.

      Bring in your Guru OTC and your comrades in keyboard Mechanic, sach, Nuisance, wathie, Dawn Dale to rewrite history.

      Its time you went back to your mother country.

    One think you should get right into your stupid head……

    Your stupid people have always expressed your emotions and concerns through mind boggling level of violence……
    Why are lying through your keyboard?………

    To Native Veddah

    My comment was an invitation to respond to some concerns not just in Sri Lanka but internationally. I am not anti Muslim. The above are from your comment and tone and content add illustration to a problem. In is necessary to listen and answer concerns and such language is unconstructive. Answer concerns and questions, have a discussion. Talking itself creates an environment conducive to solutions. Such language Mr Veddah though not abusive raises the temperature of the tone. In Sri Lanka issues are only discussed when destructive situations erupt. We should therefore make allowance for the fact that human beings are not always masters of the language they use especially on occasions such as this.

    You have chosen not to comment on the fact of violent intolerance in Muslim countries.
    You have chosen not to comment on the situation in the UK where the government has in effect ordered their security services to commence a thorough investigation of the activities of various organisations related to the Muslim community.
    As I said in my comment that for example, no other community in the UK has this problem with their fellow citizens. The UK is a country whose Judeo/Christian heritage that has shaped its culture, heritage, traditions, Politics and Law, and is appreciated by all its citizens, indigenous and migrant bar members of the Muslim community. That tradition in the UK includes such principles of the total equality of the sexes and a tolerance towards religion that takes place within a system in which the traditional supremacy of the Anglican church is accepted. The Jews who have made great contributions in almost every sphere arrived in Britain in 1066. Today they have had to secure their synagogues and cemeteries in the face of desecration by Islamist groups. All these are issues and they arise from factual evidence.

    Native Veddah comment; As for “Your homeland is in South/North India whence your ancestors came”. Well, everything is relative, but it is a fact based on historical and archaeological that the Sinhala people arrived in Sri Lanka over 3000 years. There is no historical or archaeological evidence that points to anything else. I would think that for a reasonable man a 2000 year head start would count for something.

    Native Veddah comment; “Your stupid people have always expressed your emotions and concerns through mind boggling level of violence.” Oh yes? Worse that what is happening between Sunnis’ and Shias’ in Syria and Iraq? Worse than Boko Haram? Worse than the Taliban in the Swat valley. My My talk about being selective!

    Native Veddah comment; What are those emotions and concerns? The emotions and concerns are precisely those which we find acceptable in other communities, societies and nations such as Saudi Arabia and the UK, both of which are over 2000 years younger than that of the Sinhala people. Muslims can and will call Sri Lanka their home. In fact it is the Sinhala kings who protected the Muslims of both Sri Lanka and South India from the Portugese. As for your statement “They are here to stay. If you don’t like them you go.” “Your homeland is in South/North India whence your ancestors came. Remember this is not your land but you have been living here on our ancestral land.” – Well, it would be a concern amongst many if you declare that intent – Which is why it is advisable to be careful with language.

    Native Veddah Request; “Please teach us Dhamma” We cannot teach the Dhamma. It is for people to want to learn and yes people are selective and that is what needs to be discussed. “But if they hear the teaching they will gain liberation” and yes they can hear the teaching only if they want to hear.

    Refai,

    You may have a doctorate but you never seems to have the brains to think independently, clearly and accept the truth especially when it comes to Muslims. It is because you are also one of those ungrateful selfish extremist. Let me remind you that justice is based on evidence not like Allah’s justice system where the MAN have the power to lie. Refai, they are all evidence based.
    OK Refai, as I have asked you many times in the past have you visited Babile Road Gampola to see Evidence of Muslim racism? Are you scared to see it or you don’t have the guts to face reality or evidence which shows how Muslims are trying to instigate violence. Like Muhamad evidence is dangerous in Islam. Please remember we live in Sri Lanka and we allowed the Muslims to live in Sri Lanka thinking they are also humans like others but now the whole world knows they are the most ungrateful human kind worse that a dog, a cat or even a pig. Just look around the world if you have the brains to do that.

    “First they came for my neighbor, and I said nothing. Then they came for me and there was no one left to stand with me”.

    Where were you guys when the army was slaughtering innocent Tamils. Nice to hear that Rauff Hakim is talking about taking it to Navin Pillai. isn’t he the same Hakim who was praising the excellent human rights track record of Sri lanka last time to the same Navin Pillai in shoring up support for the president.

    I guess it is time for Muslims in Sri lanka to make up their mind and once and for all take a stand instead of changing the hat whenever it suits them.

    APPARENTLY THE ONLY PLACE HE HAS NOT VISITED AT THE TAXPAYERS EXPENSE IS TIMBUKTOO.
    HE MUST BE REALLY BLIND AND STUPID IF HE WANTS TO SEE EVIDENCE.
    EVEN AN IDIOT CAN SEE THAT SO THAT SHOULD MAKE HIM LOWER THAN AN IDIOT.

    Rifai,
    When you compare to murders of innocent Jewish women, children and old by your so called leader and a child rapist, who is better Refai? Refai who is killing innocent people around the world as we speak? Do we want that situation in Sri Lanka? No Refai, we all know that is what you are trying to do. Why don’t yo talk about what Muslims did to the Buddhist Monk in Aluthgama which started all this? Why aren’t you gutless admitting it and produce those barbaric Muslims? This would not have gone this far if those bloody Muslims did the right thing. Have you seen what your bloody Imam’s in the name Allah doing in Gampola? You ignorant racist go to Gampola Babile road and see whether you have the guts to say anything about your Barbaric, uncultured Pupils of murderer.

    MR has asked for evidence from SLMC MPs to test the water. The only evidence that matters is the one which was given by the Buddhist Clergy in the three wheeler which triggered the attack on Muslims. Everything else is irrelevant as MR has already said that he will not ban BBS as BBS his child.
    Shame on SLMC who after all this are refusing to resign to hang onto power ( none exists ) and perks.

    Dr Rifai Naleemi

    I asked questions of the individuals who made comments in relation to your article. I asked quite specific questions and have not received a reply. I am disappointed as it reinforces the impression that Muslims will keep repeating slogans in the hope others will go away.
