Racist Thugs Known For Spewing Anti-Muslim Sentiments Released, Just A Day After Muslim Politicos Resign From Their Ministerial Portfolios

Mahason Balakaya leader Amith Weerasinghe was granted bail by the Colombo Additional Magistrate a short while ago indicating tough times for ahead for the Muslim community. It was Weerasinghe who led the mobs to attack Muslim homes in Digana, Kandy in 2018.

The racist thug who is known for spreading vitriol against Muslims was arrested on May 14, just a day after anti-Muslim riots spread in several parts of the country including Minuwangoda and Kuliyapitiya.

Weerasinghe’s release comes just days after the release of BBS Galagoda Atte Gnanasara and it has been less than 24 hours since Muslim politicos resigned from their Ministerial portfolios following unrest that erupted in various parts of Sri Lanka yesterday. Kandy, particularly was a hotbed where mobs pressuring the Government to bow down to the demands made by Rathana thera who began a protest fast demanding the sacking of Minister Rishard Bathiudeen and ex-Governors Azath Salley and A L M Hizbullah, were out and about.

It was at a presser last evening in Temple Trees that Muslim Ministers told media that they have resigned from their Ministerial portfolios in a bid to ensure that investigations into Easter attacks continue without undue interference. Among those resigned included four Cabinet Ministers, four state ministers and one Deputy Minister.

Speaking at the presser SLMC Leader Rauff Hakeem told media they expect the government to provide necessary and adequate security to the Muslim community.

Last afternoon Governor Hizbullah and Salley tendered their resignations to Sirisena stating it is to ensure safety of the Muslim community in Sri Lanka.

    Cardinal who holds the hands of Gandassara is going to have a rude awakening soon when that hand is twisted and thrown down to the floor.

    As Martin Niemoller wrote

    First they came for the socialists I didn’t speak out cos I was not a socialist
    Then they came for the trade unionists I did not speak out as I was not a trade unionist
    Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew
    And then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me

    All the people irrespective of race and religion should oppose extremism no matter whether it’s wahabi or Buddhist

      Amith Weerasinghe is a great man going by the standards of racist , terrorist, wahabist , Islamic extremist pigs like Rishard, Hisbulla, Asath Sally Mujbar Rahman , Haleem etc.
      All fucking Muslims are directly or indirectly associated with or supporting terrorism, including their so called cabinet , non cabinet ministers. They have blood of 300 innocent people in their hand , so they should be mercilessly punched, kicked, attacked & deserve the death as well.

        Yes,you to is a racist scum that your great idea of holding every Muslim responsible for the indiscriminate and brutal slaughter of many people on the Easter Sunday attack is a myth and is only you are a piggy backIng the thugs who took Sri Lanka into a 30 year brutal war and destroyed the country. Think twice before open your nasty mouth. Don’t dare think that you can kick punch and kill anyone as you wish.

      Cardy boy is just a mouthpiece. He didn’t say jack when Protestant and Evangelical churches were targeted by mobs. The 21/4 warning might have been brushed aside because m”Leaders” thought it was another attack on some tinsy little congregation (Which red cap archie don’t consider as real christian)

      Roman Leslie,

      This Cardinal Malcolm reminds me of the Popes who cooperated with the Nazis. Looks like this Cardinal is following in the same path followed by his predecessor popes in Supporting Para-Sinhala Buddhist Racism and Facists..

      .Many claim that the Popes are the Devil incarnate. Amarasiri could not find good references to that effect, even though the actions of the Popes during the Nazi regime and supporting fascism indicate that.

      So, the Cardinal is an underling if the Pope, and by Church tradition tends to support Racists and Facists.

    Let Gandasara be the President, Cardinal be the PM, and then all would look good for the country. Donkeys should do its work and not the dogs.

      JD,

      In order to have your posts approved, you need to foul mouth the Sinhalese. More frequently than you do, you must use the word “Para” often in your posts. And while foul mouthing the Sinhalese make sure to insult their clergy and the women.

      Then, you will be in Total compliance with forum guidelines.

      LOL!

    Whatever crimes and hate speech that will occur, under the BBS terrorist, and this hate monger Weerasinghe, is the responsibility of the president of this country. He released them, therefore he must be held accountable for what they from now on.

      Leelo,
      I think BBS Xanasara sounds to have learnt much during the 8 or 9 months he was locked up. Yesterday I heard him stressing that not just 3 MUSLIM ministers should be attacked but we need to collectively work to block the muslim extremism from being rising their head in the country. That I think is right.
      :
      I never respected BP Xanasara, but him to have changed his direction is seen today, also he has got the balls to DIRECTLY criticise the RATHANA cheerawaradhariya that loudly for his his highly abusive betrayal. All in all, all these would not have come this far, if our SENIOR politicos heartedly workd marginalizing any kind of extremists supporters not just focusing on their selfish gains.
      :
      I have no doubt, RELEASE from BBS head from the prison was motivated something else in the line of SIRISENA BP….. these blue flies being found on the HEAPs of extrements are the real obstacle in lanken politics.
      :
      Just interview 100 within your circles but not only GRASS EATERs or unedcuated, but almost everyone, you would not see a greater change if you would consider them as a cross section of the society. Meaning, entire society regardless of their education backgrounds have been tied up int to MOST dangerous SOCIAL opinion:
      That is being done by MOST abusive LOCAL press.
      These men should be SUBJECTED to media ethics NOT waiting an hour:
      We need to question why DIWAYINA paper reacted so irresponsibly.
      :
      Thanks and greetings from Southern Germany for this Day.

    Rishard put up a big show in the parliament today. He was strongly attacking Old King implying that he was Master Minding the riots on Muslims and NCM on him, while he was claiming that it was Muslim community recued the country from LTTE terrorism, rather than Old king. Through the most of his diatribes, Rishard sounded like” we saved the country from LTTE terrorism, so we deserve the priority, Sinhalese must recognize it”. Rishard was struggling to drive deeply the wedge between Tamils and Sinhalese in his stifling to save his head. While Rishard was teaching other Muslim crook politicians that unity is the shield to save their heads but he said if he is guilty he is willing to accept even capital punishment. But his entire eloquent speech missed the important to explain, why such a statesman, a Gentleman waited until to all the Muslim ministers are united to resign.
    Apparently if he has been ready to let the investigation go, I don’t think it was needed that all UNP and SLFP Muslim Ministers should have jointly resigned only after 4th day of the Ratnam’s fasting. Claiming it was not out of fear, but to save some body doesn’t make sense. As a decent politician, on the first day when it was suggested that Rishard was connected with the terrorism and a parliament selected committee formed, he should have tendered his voluntary interdiction until the selected committee investigation was over. If not guilty report was delivered by he committee, he then faces NCM. If he has not lost confidence in NCM, he may demand back to his minster post.

    He claimed that it was not he, but blamed America for doing this to destroy the global Muslims so Lankawe has to take a look on its deal with America. But he warned that if Sinhalese ill treat him then Lankawe is risking the Oil import and ME jobs. It is interesting to note, before Rishard deliver his speech, OIC had delivered a protest statement on the treatment of Muslims in Lankawe.
    Richard took the protection of the entire Muslim community to impede the investigation against him. But he pretended that he did that because to save his community. His action of getting 9 ministers resigning with him to save him has deepened the division between the majority community and Muslim Community and extremely damaged the cross trust in the communities about others politicians good faith. The truth is he gambled the communities’ relationship to protect his head. The net result is today four new Monks are fasting to bring out Rishard from his cocoon and face the trial.

      Musulim ministers all resigned not because of unity but all are under microscope now.
      Else some other monks will call to remove them.
      Pity even their Arab God is not helping .

    Explaining MR, MS, GR, RW, Gnanasara, Rathana and all the rest.
    Those who have been once intoxicated with power, and have derived any kind of emolument from it, even though but for one year, never can willingly abandon it. They may be distressed in the midst of all their power; but they will never look to anything but power for their relief – Edmund Burke

      “Explaining MR, MS, GR, RW, Gnanasara, Rathana and all the rest.”

      Forget those crooks, thugs, murderers, …………….
      What are you doing to prevent riots/war recurring in this island?
      We know you are a do gooder, you will only act after damage has been done. We also know you are a card carrying racist. It is a difficult balancing act . Therefore you should choose between being a do gooder or public racist. You cannot sit on the fence forever.

    In Sri lanka, protestants are writing the Pali canon again. I think they know what need to be changed. I heard, shangri LA dialogue people are looking why these people are this hard to change.
    I heard Shangrila dialogue people translated the Pali Canon to see why it is so difficult to Talk to this kind of People. they did not find anything. Now, they want to translate Saddharma Rathnawaliya and see whether it would make the difference. Srilankan govt also knows about it.

      It is good to keep the Pope informed.
      On the other hand Gota went all the way to Vatican to confess to the pope as to what he had been doing from April 26, 1971 to the day he met the pope (20 November 2013).

      Note the first JVP insurrection began on 5th April 1971 and collapsed on the next morning.

    Myanmar also has Oil. Russia has Oil. Sri lanka is getting Oil from Iran which is not Sunni. Sri lanka has to forget OIC. which may be backed by CIA/NATO/MCC. Wahhabis killed Innocent people because they were Catholic. If OIC said, they should be neglected. Saudi Arabia though they funded Terrorism, they are saddned with the killings.

      Fuel prices outside OIC is high af. It’s going to cost an arm and a leg to buy from those other countries. Plus the Gulf region have been giving us interest free loans for quite some time now. And remember the UN sanctions against SL? Guess who voted against them vehemently? Islamic nations of course!

      Oil now available in many countries at very cheap price.

      Many people are not aware that Russians and CIS countries have biggest oil reserve in the world.

      After another 50 years no more oil in Arab lands then they will go back to camel riding and live in tents.

      Already oil reserves finished in UAE…Kuwait..Bahrain .

      Bedouin Saudies must send back to prior to 1935 living standard.

    People are writing all sorts of comments of what is happening in Sri Lanka. I think that they do get some sort of thrill when their comments are published. No one writes anything about how to overcome these difficulties faced by Sri lanka. All Sri-lankans know that the present Govt, of MS and RW is the worst Govt. Sri Lanka had after independence. Can’t the lankans find people who are educated and following Buddhism to the core and are content with what they have to form a Govt. It is a long shot but nothing like trying. There are many politicians who are in Jail in Australia for doing one 100th of what our politicians have done to the country (Corruption). Giving prominence to clergy to interfere in politics was a great disaster, when they should be in Temples and preaching Lord Buddha’s teachings to the young and old.

    For some wierd reason the Cardinal seems to be dragged into this news story. Please do not get carried away by subterfuge. The cardinal belongs to the fascist branch of the catholic church. The man is a manace but cannot do much damage so leave him alone in fact it is best to just ignore him all together. The release of this scoundrel is another piece of action pre-planned by Sirisena to bring about the down fall of the current government. He wants to go to elections with the Rajapucksas in charge of the government folks wake up. This is his plan to remain in power. Your votes will be thrown in the garbage and there will be grotesque violence staged by yours truly the miserable crooks and thugs of the SLPP. This is the game plan. Of course the ponna PM knows where all this is headed and keeps quiet thus dragging the UNP kicking and screaming into oblivion. Ranil Wickremesinghe is desecrating on the good name of a political party built on the immense sacrifices of its past leadership. It is unforgivable.

    Mithraya JD, what this Shemale Retard says is correct. Speak the truth about Sinha-Leys and then it will be approved. Only, being such a stupid moron, yet he some sense in what he says. So speak the truth. Deny Mahavamsa. Deny Sinha-Ley. Deny the origin of sinha-Ley. Deny the Aryan myth. Deny their claim of Buddha Ratte.

    So JD, your wife and daughters are safe with their employment in the ME? By the way do you have any innocent people in Dukka Deepa? They are ignorant but not innocent. By the way in which country you have sought refugee status? JD, by the way why appe Runner Sinhas had been targeting Katholika Churches that were mushrooming all over to trap the ignorant masses? Will they stop the attacks now since the Noble Kardinal has openly become a racist and joined the Ratta Destroyers?

    All the Mobs from past to date are fully protected by the SL constitution that allows the law only to apprehend them after damage ,using simple Civil law and then pardoned and released.
    The law is not allowed to even use tear gas at Racists Mobs while can use it on student protests
    This country is only liveable for Muslims like Sabry and Wimal”mussamil .
    Muslims need to understand this has been pre planned since the end of LTTE war ,Saharan and dogs were allowed to grow like free run chicken and let to self sacrifice served on a platter to fulfil the agenda.
    hope for whole of Sri Lanka is only Sajith Premadasa.
    If he is not elected as PM
    Sl (Mostly Muslims) will start bleeding after 2020.

    The President should ignore the critics and accusations, its useless trying to prove anything the ones who hate him will continue to do so.
    People in power in the past in worst circumstance refused to hold elections and extended the term.
    The President should do all he can to extend his term like the past Presidents under this circumstances until 2021 and replace Ranil with Sajith Premadsa and re-form a National Government and extend the term until July 2021.
    And work tirelessly to put the country back ,if he succeeds after one year ,ppl prejudiced will anyways will not change their attitude, but it will give him the satisfaction of having tried & the sincere people will recognise his achievement and be grateful

    CORRECTION: None of the Muslim ministers have handed over their resignation – all they are doing is boycotting their portfolios in support of a terrorist sympathiser.
