Rajapaksa Allies Display Anti-Muslim Sentiments At Kalutara District Coordination Committee Meeting

In an outward display of anti-Muslim and racist attitudes – characteristics inherent to factions supporting Rajapaksas – Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) provincial politicos of Kalutara district, stormed out of the Coordinating Committee meeting citing ‘safety concerns’ after Western Province Governor Azath Salley walked in.

Azath Salley

Walallawita Pradeshiya Sabha Chairman, Udeni Athukorale who appeared to be leading the group spoke to media while staging his walk-out and said, “We can’t be part of the meeting if our security can’t be guaranteed…We have concerns about our security now.” Their security concern was the arrival of Governor Salley – a confusing claim to make about the President’s representative to Co-Chair the meeting.

He went on to state that if the leaders are unable to grasp the ‘growing wave’ in this country, he cannot be part of meetings organised by the government. SLFP members however continued to sit in the meeting but Athukorale said SLFP members remaining in the meeting is their prerogative, irrelevant to SLPP members.

When inquired about the walk-out from SLFP frontliner, MP Kumara Welgama, he said it was the MPs personal decision and added he however did not leave, out of respect for the meeting.

“He [Salley] has been appointed by the President. What can I achieve by protesting an appointment made by the President? He has that power,” Welgama added.

Meanwhile, a group of Bhikkus also staged a protest before the secretariat against Salley’s participation and the crowd hooted at Salley when he walked out upon concluding the meeting,

    Seems a reasonable statement, after all what is racist about being concerned about their safety.
    Salley is suspected of supporting Mohommedan terorism+ he made some unusual comments about the Mohommedan doctor. There is a high risk that Salley could get up in the meeting go Allah Allah and explode. Afterall Salley house has not been checked so there is no way to know how many grass cutting equipment he has (he may also have bred 28 little Mohommedans- better get derana to do an investigation).
    Also in Kandy the honorable venerable Rathana is on the case and will be indulging in what looks like a hunger fast (without any lemon puffs in sight) so i’m sure once the Presidents holiday is over he will take a decision on the Governor (this being a presidential election year no way he will let a monk get unneccessarily malnourished over a 2-3 week period)
    Overall seems very reasonable thing for people to walk out when a suspected Kaboom Kaboom Mohommedan terrorist walks in

      Saurus,

      Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhists have been in the business of Terrorism against the Tamils since 1958, 1977, 1983 etc. and initiated the LTTE, supported by India.

      Para-Sinhala Buddhist terrorism against the Christians and Muslims have similarly, turned a SMALL all fraction of the Devil, Satan Followers, to Terrorism.

      The core problems are Para Sinhala Buddhist Terrorism and Wahhabi Salafi Terrorism. They all feed Terrorism.

      The state does nothing to protect the innocents from the terrorists. Why are you selective?

        Amarasiri,
        “Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhists have been in the business of Terrorism against the Tamils since 1958, 1977, 1983 etc.”
        May be you are a descendant of slaves brought from Malabar by Portuguese and Dutch who does not know the history of Sinhale. Para Demalu started terrorizing Sinhalayo around 3rd century BC. They invaded Sinhale, killed millions of Native Sinhalayo and destroyed Sinhala Kingdoms Anuradhapura and Pollonnaruwa forcing Native Sinhalayo to leave that area.

        This is an excerpt from a speech given by President Chandrika Kumaratunge
        “On the other hand, I dare say, that there are reasons to justify the fears of the Sinhala. History records that ancient Lanka was invaded 52 times in 14 centuries by South Indian rulers, and was conquered and ruled by a few times. This may be sufficient to sow fear in the common conscience of the Sinhala people.”
        Pre-requisite for peace, stability and prosperity in a democratic and pluralist state-by Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga. If you want the source go to dbsjeyaraj dot com/archives/2000.

          Eagle Eye,

          The terrorism was initially started by criminals from Bharat , called Para-Sinhala, on the Nativ Veddah Aethho.. Subsequent invasions by the Para-Tamils on the Para-Sinhala and Native Aethho, is also Terrorism.

          However, the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils should have stayed in Bharat, and sorted this out, without illegally landing and terrorizing the land of Native Veddah Aethho.,

          Don’t bring Mahavamda comic stories to parade your stupidity.

          You all are ex.Malayalies and Tamil spoken Manawadues.

          Kekekekekek
          When LTTE was at their peak why Musulim bruders never exploded bombs ?

          Knowing very well Sinhala cardboard security forces are stupid and with support of Modayas governments Musulims took upper hand .

          Why can’t your Pres sack these Musulim ministers and Koverner in Kafir dress?

          Don’t wail now.

          Cheers

      I wonder why the participant of the meeting didn’t protest against Udeni Atukorale’s presence? He is still on bail for well known case of taking bribes from a colleague. Vast majority of SLPP leadership from top to bottom is this type!

    Can this Mahinda group (SLPP) boycott Muslim Nations completely? it is the Mahinda who gave all freedom to Muslim politicians in order to buy them to get the support for 18th amendment of the constitution. We understand that Mahinda called Rishard to come to his side and he will get everything sorted out. I doubt the Bomb blast is a well planned execution by the SLPP lead by Mahinda. They tried many political coups and it could be part of that coup.

    muslims deserve this. they thought sinhalese are in majority and tamils have no power at all and supported the sinhala extremists during the war period and benefited to a great extent as listed by many muslim authors. after the annihilation of tamils extremists started their annihilation process with the muslims. this is the most serios consequence of the opportunistic stand taken by the muslims.. short term policies with vested interests cannot last long. final point is that muslims are hated by both sinhalese and tamils whatever rational we put forward in support of innocent muslims. i am one of them. .

    I’m confused is the Colombo Telegraph motto, “in journalism truth is a process” or “minorities can do no wrong”?

      Sandun,

      It is clearly because Sri Lankan mainstream medias spread loads of lies and propaganda against the minorities. And only in Colombo Telegraph the minorities are able to express their grievances and true side of the conflicts.

    How on earth this writer of CT hints its readers, “Asath Salley is a saint” and some officials in Kalutara who had guts to stand against this offish governor, into “racist” bracket? Absurd.

      If you believe this island is Sinhala/Buddhist country, it means you are a racist who is attempting to alienate people with identities from each other. You do believe like the public racist former commander Sarath Fonseka that this country belongs to Sinhala/Buddhists and you support another public racist the saffron clad thug.

      Why worry about others being racist?

    I guess if the BBS goon Gnanasara had walked in he would have been welcomed.
    These are racists scum setting the wrong example for a nation already rife with racial tensions. These nationalist have to accept the fact that Sri Lanka is a multi religious nation. Get over it.

    So I take this as every time a concerned Muslim politician attends parliamentary session SLFP and SLPP will walk out because of concerns for personal safety.(public should be the one concerned when these criminals are around). That sure will help with lot of the problems, government is facing right now, in getting implemented. Hope they will be true to their words.

      Chiv > Salley has done nothing but utter racist shit, try to whitewash any arrested suspect, put pressure on the authorities to release attested terrorist suspects, influence government to stop searches of Muslim mosques & areas…

      Or just because he is a Muslim it’s ok to do anything… They walked out as a protest… People hooted at Salley because of his hate inducing behaviour & remarks… The president should remove this fuckers from his post…

        Gnanasara promoted violence, so whether it is Gnanasara, Salley or any other bigot, the enforcement agencies should crack down hard on all those who break the law & the President should make sure law & order is maintained to ensure the safety of all citizens, not pardon criminals for cheap popularity.

        As for the walking out by the Provincial Council members on a lame excuse of danger to their lives, what a joke, & the mentality of the hooting public shows their level of intelligence & rational thinking. No wonder yobs & thugs are appointed as parliamentarians.

          Gangasara was put in prison for his doings. When Obvious hate mongers & racists like Salley is allowed to run wild & continue their hate mongering & influence investigations without check… People has no option than to take matters in to their own hands.

          Do you live in Sri Lanka? If you do, you know how much anger there is among the public because the government is protecting these fuckers… The anger of government inactivity & obvious protection of these fuckers are very close to boiling over…Where is the justice for the victims or their families or the injured? Where is the justice for millions who are depending on tourism & are utterly lost now ?

          The majority of the Sinhalese & Tamil population living in Sri Lankan are cursing the government.

          If these 3 assholes are not removed, people would take matters in to their own hands…

    As ‘chiv’ says, if every time a Muslim politician walked into a meeting and all the SLPP members walk out fearing for their personal safety, that would be a great thing indeed because then the country could sort out all its problems. That should include the sessions in parliament too!

    This guy should not have been appointed to this position in the first place. Those who walked out should have done this at the inception of his appointment!

    For me, it is a case of fit for the job than race or religion of a person!

    Muslims fell into their own traps owing to the stupidity and greed. They were too fast, masked by the things coming their way and thought that soon they can overrun the country. They knew too well the weakness of the majority and how easily they can be bought over. They thoght of making East an Islamic Republic and modayas provided all the support. Sinhalas can only see in one direction. MR, MY3, Ranil…all were overfeeding muslims. They got more than what they wanted. Too much, too quick. Otherwise Hisbullah, a guy who lost the election, cannot become the CM of the East. What a joke. It is well known he was corrupt and a fanatic. So he went on pell mell. Shariya university, Arabic language, date palms, mosques everywhere, demolishing other places of worship. Same thing done by Rishard in Mannar district. Muslims thought they are invincible and because of ME they cannot be touched. They underestimated appe Sinhala brothers way of doing things. When they run riot they never think, they never care of the consequences, in fact they have no ability to think at all from beginning. Thus came the crush and to see moda Muslims are in a big mess and all communities are pitted against them. They are in a big mess but country too in a big mess. This will lead to sinhala Buddhist madness and that will be more destructive to entire SL. There is just no hope for our country. Modi, being a Hindu fanatic, may support Sinhala Buddhist fanaticism. He has axe to grind with TN, Tamils won’t swallow his Hindu and Brahmanic stunts. So interesting days ahead for us. But I am sure Rathana will get up soon with Maliban Nice Biscuit because they need good food all the time. And MY3 gamarala may have to go to thirupathiyan soon to say goodbye. Chances of redemption is very remote unless someone else takeover.

    I have a question for everyone. Can someone tell me the race that Sally belongs to?

    Is he a Lankan Arab, Lankan Tamil, Dravidian, or some other race.

    For someone to show a racist attitude there has to be a difference in RACE. Let us not confuse religion and RACE. These are very different things.

    Catholics world over belong to multiple races, and so does Moslems, Hindus, Buddhists and others. I can understand broader racism between Caucasians and Asians of Chinse descent, Africans and Arabs, etc. But I cannot understand Lankan racism vis-à-vis Sinhalese or Tamil Lankans and Moslems unless the Lankan Moslems are of a particular race. Broad anger and resentment against Lankan Moslems who breed the likes of the animals, the vermin that killed hundreds on Easter Sunday, I completely understand. But that is fear of Jihadi Moslem terror and the purveyors of that terror, Lankan Moslems.

      SL Musulims are all converted Tamil Hindus.

      This is why their mother tongue is Tamil in SL

      There guys have no relationship with Arabs now try to show to Arabs about their slavery for monthly Bedouin payments.

      There was no Musuims in N-E before the arrival of Portuguese.

      There was no Isulam before 4th century in Asia all were Hindus the last country embraced Isulam because of stupid rulers is today’s is Indonesia.

      But these Musulim politicians and Koverner are jumping too much without realizing even their Arab God couldn’t stop dogs enter Mosques .with security forces.

    The Katutura District Local Government SLPP politicos claim that Western Province Governor Azath Sally makes them feel insecure.
    Of course the SLPPers will find security in a cardboard cutout of Gnanasara Thero. And serenity too!
    Who will forget the Gnanasara anti-Muslim 2014 Aluthgama Pogrom?

    followers of anybody with intelligence should do what few local governments representative did in Kalutara. Nothing wrong with it at all. Western province governor should look after western province matters. has nothing to do with yet another province matters. I think he violated his authority. as such should be sacked immediately. whether doctor is Muslim man or not he is government servant.people have every rights to protest against him if they felt doctor done illegal thing while performing his duties. nothing wrong with it. governor is not this doctor’s consultant surgeon to speak on behalf of him while director of the hospital made accusations against him for errors done by him. That is Hospital director’s duty. If he or she feel it is a crime he or she has every rights to make complain to police and collect evidences for inquiries. Director done his job but western province governor tried to teach them or interfere with their duties.That is totally an abuse of power. local government people representatives have every rights to make protest against such behavior. Nothing wrong with it . Party they belong is immaterial. They have obligations to people they elected. Governor is only a executive president’s representative. he or she have to deal with president for their grievances..
