Salley Arrested Under PTA, Facebook Hate Campaign Started Against Salley

Azath Salley was taken into custody under the PTA and the police stated that according to a news item Azath has addressed a meeting provoking Muslims to rise up, directed them to armed struggle and seek support for such activity in India.

Azath Salley

“This news item is inaccurate and a correction has been sent. However even the said news item has not indicated what the police interpreted.” Salley’s media office told Colombo Telegraph.

Muslim Tamil National Alliance leader and former member of the Colombo Municipal Council Azath Salley, was arrested this morning and Police spokesman SP Budhika Siriwardena said that the politician was arrested over some complaints lodged with the CID.

In March the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) had issued summons on Salley to appear at the CCD office.

“March 21, 2013, soon after the UNHRC voting took place two jeeps with police officers have come to my residence to arrest me, on informing that I was not available they came to my office. By that time I came out of office and was staying outside up to now.We sent three lawyers to C C D to check, they informed that the President’s adviser on religious affairs, has made a complaint that I scolded the president and intimidated him. If that is the case they should have logged the case at the Cinnamon Garden police station and referred it to the mediation board for settlement but, the information I have got is that five teams have been deployed for my arrest with some reason.” in March Sally had told the Colombo Telegraph.

    Not surprising at all. What else can you expect from the present regime in Sri Lanka! When Bodu Bala Sena monk was abusing Islam and was instigating violence against Muslims and their business establishments naming names, the regime did nothing. But in the case of Salley they have arrested him. This is another human rights violation. Next UN Human Rights council session this would lengthen the next resolution against Sri Lanka. When are we going to learn. What a shame!

      Park,

      BBS leaders were vandalizing CCTV cameras at broad day light, with Police looking at them as onlookers, there regime stayed dead silent but for Salley PTA was not applied for that matter why ?

      Within a week, we the people are compelled to see their unanticipated actions (Duminda ´s release and to date this).

      I happened to read today that Weerawansa threatened about break away from the coalition if police and land powers will NOT be taken away from PCs before the NE election. Wait and see whether President will order to arrest him too in the near future.

      We the non-BBS buddhists are angered, helpless and no hopes for security if would go against them publicly :(

        Monks who threw stones and vandalized CCTV cameras were produced at courts. The complainant withdrew the complaint and settle the case is a different matter for such settlements happen in many court cases.

          The attack is a criminal offence under the law. Therefore, it is the Police that has to prosecute the offender with the owner of the business as the witness. If the witness, the owner of the business, does not come forward to give evidence he should be charged for the offence of obstructing the process of justice. It is well-known that everything was manipulated to cover-up the brains behind, the real offenders.

          Complainant pardoned them and the case was withdrawn by the police and not by the company. There is a story going around that they were compelled to withdraw. We will never know the truth of it. When such things happen, people have various theories = Deyyo thamai dhanne

      Sri Lanka is a family run dictatorship. With all trappings of an established democracy. That is even worse. Denial of this fact is not a solution.

      What we are seeing are results of “Police State” thinking. Operated by an unelected, unaccountable and non-transparent civil servant, GR. His only qualification to police citizens in this style, he happens to be the dictator’s borther.

      Every citizen will be in GR’s radar soon. Forget civil liberties. Until Gota is chased away. Back to Hambantota. Where he came from.

        what are the charges against him ?

        So then, MR has to order each of us here because, we criticise his every bits on this platform.

        Lately on a TV dialogue, I happened to see Salley was showing pictures of Koran being thrown to pig farm – that is how BBS fantatics treated muslims. In that interview, that secretary of BBS failed to rebutt at all.

        Not only Azath but also Weerawansa has added sharp critics against BBS in his y day´s speech.

        Quoting that from:

        “The background to combining two Provincial Councils has already been set up by the Western world. They have given funds to some organizations to create a Sinhala-Muslim conflict in the country. By highlighting such conflicts, the Sri Lanka Muslim Congress (SLMC) will forge an alliance with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) at the EPC. Then the separatists will combine the NPC and the EPC,”

        So wait and see what would be reaction against Weerawansa by very same rulers :(

          Hope the East and the North is not merged. After all , I do not see any reason for the merger. I asked this question from Tamil nationalists, their answer is ” to satisfy Tamil aspirations”.
          If they merge, it is the Sinhalese and the Muslims who will be reduced to a minority

          As it is it would be an ideal opportunity for the East to show how all three communities can coexist.

        Ben, it’s true that so many unwarranted things do happen here but arresting this man is right. I know him personally and he is scolding the regime openly but doing all underhand deals through his cronies with the government. He is an opportunist and he was all out to collect votes on the stupidity of BBS.

      Don’t just think about abusing Islam. All these things started by muslims. Watch videos that Anwar Manathunga distorting buddhism. This site is also racist propaganda activity becuase this publish everything about buddhist violations from international media but nothing about islamic violations like church demolishing in Indonisia and Egypt.

        Please remember that Sri Lankan Muslims are not responsible to what is happening in Saudi and Indonesia. Saudi is a rogue state, violating all principles in Islam. Saudi kings are puppets propelled by US.

        A simple e.g. of their hypocrisy is that a Muslim woman cannot go for Haj or Umra without being escorted by a close relative known as Mahram. Mahram is a generally brother, father or the husband. In other words this lady has to be accompanied by the husband, father or brothers.
        No one has the answer as to how the housemaids enter Saudi Arabia. According to Islamic principles as practiced in Saudi, housemaids cannot enter that country without Mahram( Permitted escort)They need the housemaids to be tortured so they allow free access for housemaids to that country.M ajority of the Sri Lankan Muslim, do not agree with principle of Mahram, but Saudi enforces it so strictly on other women. Saudi Arabia does not practice the true principles of Islam. If Ariyawathi and Rizana has gone to Saudi with the escorts, their fate will be different.
        According to cardinal principles of Islam, those who work for you must be given the same food as the masters and they must be paid their wages before the sweat drops the floor.( That is do not delay the wages) How many housemaids return without proper food and without wages and what action the so called ” Islamic country” has taken to deal with this. They are quick to punish for offences which do not deserve to be punished
        Please note that we are Sri Lankan Muslims and not Saudi Muslims.
        Sri Lankan Government forces the Muslims to be exclusive and then complain. Due to state policy we in the Sinhala majority areas are forced to study in the Tamil medium as Muslim schools teach only in the Tamil medium. Because of the existence of these schools, we cannot easily get access to the Sinhala medium schools particularly in the rural and semi urban areas. So we are further isolated and it restricts our integration with the Sinhalese in the majority Sinhala areas are prevented by the Sinhala Government. We live in isolation. The relationship made in school lasts forever and in the schools we never bother about their ethnicity. Persons who had studied in the English medium those days , would vouch for these facts.

        There is a discussion going on why we are not integrated, the school system has to be blamed for this. Muslims would like to study in the Sinhala medium. Please can the government change its policy for the sake of Unity or something tells me that successive governments like to divide and rule so tries to keep them apart and blame the Muslims for being exclusive.

      Anyone from any religion is free to question on any Sutra in Tripitaka to clear their doubts. We do that every dhamma discussion sessions. So, how could reading Koran verses and question them be an abuse of Islam. I have never heard BBS instigating violence against Muslims.

          Park,
          I have attended a few BBS rallies and listened to orations by Ven Gnanasara. You too can listen to his speech at Kandy at bodubalasena.org. There, he demanded ‘no limit’ stop employing Sinhala girls. He asked why only Muslim boys and Sinhala girls are employed in ‘no limit’ but no Sinhala boys are employed there.

          He insisted it’s a deliberate ploy by Muslims to fix Sinhala girls get pregnant and marry them to Muslims under duress and increase their lot. This accusation is there in Myanmar right now. Gnanasara gave a number of names of those that were fixed in that manner. He asked Muslims whether it is acceptable for them if Sinhala boys marry Muslim girls. I can give living proof of Muslim antipathy to such a marriage. He challenged Muslims for an open debate on this and many counts. If Muslims accept the challenge we can know who the racist are? Muslims or BBS

            Leela must be living in a different world to say that BBS is not inciting communal violence. How many utterances and lies that BBS has said. Speeches had appeared in the U tube One solid example is that BBS said a despicable lie in the Kandy speech that is referred to, that Koran says to spit on the food of the non Muslims and went on to say how he feels nausea now for taking that drink. Is this not inciting.

            Then he said Muslim owned establishments run harem” anthapuram” then continued to say that ” well I am not asking the crowd to hit them with stones.” Isn’t this not incitement. Of course this is directly provoking the people.

            Then this is followed quickly by the mob attack on Pepiliyana clothes stores saying that there was a rape, whereas the so called rape had occurred in a garage half mile away, few days ago and it was told that the police has taken necessary action. This attack is an indirect result of BBS incitement. BBS promptly denies involvement in this. People never believe their story.

            BBS will deny that they are not party to the rumors that the under-wears sold by NOLIMIT has some chemicals to prevent conception..
            I wish it was so simple as that. Now BBS would deny that they did not say it.

            There are many Muslim girls who had married Sinhala Buddhists and they are no longer Muslims. An establishment cannot control the love affairs of boys and girls. I think conversion by marriage is really unacceptable after all it is not by conviction but for convenience. All religions ( including Muslims) should discourage it , it cannot be stopped by others as it is a personal choice.
            As a Muslim, I asked the readers to PREVENT these conversions for marriage. Please convey this to all establishments, mosques etc. Muslim community does not need such idiots who convert to get married to a man.

            I would like to say that Muslim shops do employ Sinhalese men in all positions including the top positions. Some Sinhalese concerns do not employ muslim men or women on principle.

    May Day rally of Frontline Socialist Party cadres & procession was filmed by Police mobile CCTV they tried to infiltrate inside the meeting place, when FLSP members objected & hooted the Police they retreated.

    Why Police is taking the Media role, Why FLSP only, not the indisciplined Drunkard UPFA rally & others.

    Azath Salley was arrested, but why. If it is for creating trouble for #MARA regime it’s just another act of impunity with the lot what we have experienced in the last 8 years. But I suspect something else. It could me a move by #MARA to increase Azath Salley’s popularity among Muslims. Currently most of Sri Lankan Muslims have lined up behind parties facing hate with soft approach. If Azath Salley gained more support, it means Muslims start facing hate with hate but not peace.

Winning the war millitarily was a collective one – though MR clans grabed the credit by spreading untruth the guillible masses. Law and order in the country was not fallen to current depth, in her two terms even if the war was its climax. As she herself made it clear, if she and her predessors were killer minded as MR has been, they all could have defeated LTTERs not respecting any civilian casulaties.

        And I also trust SF as a genuine, most purposful, well displined lanken public servant and hardly believe all the accusations made against him shortly before being arrested 3 years ago.

    iii)mervin ties Govt servant to tree – no action taken

    iv)Duminda a wanted criminal walks about scot free with senior cops saluting him

    v)Tangalle rape and murder case -no action taken

    the list goes on and on

    Azath Sally im sure was arrested for speaking the truth to the Pakistani official when he met the Muslim leaders some time back when opportunists like Rauf Hakeem and purchased goods like Azwer whtewshed everything

    It would show some neutrality and credibility, if those who dictate the laws of this country, followed the same rule, and arrested the rogue monks who went around inciting mobs with hate speeches, and attacked Muslim businesses.

IF Azath Salley was arrested for inciting violence, then what about Galabodaththe the drunkard from BBS, wasn’t he inciting violence and on that video of his while on the highway he threatens to topple the government.. have a listen…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbGW-sel6EE he threatens the cops and had snatched the cell phone . What a thug….? LOL he wants the cops to respect the robe, but the language he uses doen’t command respect ugh… He openly says This is not the political power but the BBS power woah what guts and this is enough proof to arrest the Thuggy Monkey… MR..IGP IF u have the guts prove it…

    The guy behind the Facebook hate, got to be The BBS layman Vidanagamage, who had many altercations with Azath Salley. He also did something similar to the people who took part in the Candle light vigil, whom he called Night club Sinhalese…

      Even if BBS leader together with his violent forces though vandalized shops and pvt properties with police onlooking them – were above the law.

      And to have handled the impeachment process to the speed of night races -to punish anyone go against their rule, if not just use and throw principle as it is the case with DJ, Thamara and Rajiva within their circles. Only criminal minded stay connected to do their jobs. They the rulers would not even utter a single word – behave further as if these belong to any so called democracies.

    dear friends,
    Infact Azath sally is a outstanding politician within most of the Muslim politicos who will not spill any words against the ruling parties even
    whatever atrocities that are being done against their community.(But they will go between the peoples who were voting them and will tell so many
    fancy stories to rationalize them.shameless creatures)But this man was not like them at least for some extent.he only had the guts to go to
    courts against the wrong doings of BBS. thats why the man behind BBS
    taken action to sew his mouth.if we are not unite and not protesting
    this kind of open injustice and trampling of free voices then in short time same shadows will be at your doorsteps. so,without murmuring try
    as far as possible to raise public voices against this misuse of power
    and to free him

      I have listend to his arguments on a TV dialogue with his BBS secretary. I myself being a buddhist, would not disagree with Azath. Specially the manner he clarrified the germs of current problems against muslims were sowed by none other than – BBS (minority fantatic buddhist group). So they should be accoutable for all the new problems betweens muslims and so called buddhists in the country today. BBS secretary failed to rebutt him. If Halal was an issue, that thy could have settled through responsible authorties in the country.

      BBS ´s actions against Halal was exaggerating. Each and every country´s markets allow halal and non-halal food. Germany, France or any other countries would not go on protests halal foods or the related issues, though majority of them are adherents of christianity.This halal issue was a shame – not being able to settle before kenda become Kanda- that alone proves the vision of the rulers.

        Halal issued would have been good if it was regulated by a Govt. body, but instead it was controlled by some organization under the pretext of religious leaders who were actually commercializing the whole exercise for petty monetary gains and they were greedy men, untimately spoilt the image of Islam.

I am not sure whether SL own such depts, I only know there are rigorous laws almost every country in Europe in handling any issues related to food items and their control. There are special laws in Germany and Switzerland for example not allowing anyone to import any thing easily. Lately, i though got to see some expired date food items are being sold on tamil shops in Germany. If found by them, shop keepers have to face fine of unbearable amounts. This was the case to Australia too. No chocolates or any form of sweets were permitted to own entering to Australia for instance.

          If the state allows third parties to handle such issues, in lanken halal case – letting BBS to go against it, that alone indicates the state fails to do their sevice as the nation expect them to be.

    You don’t need to blame MR or GR. It is very obvious that they are doing whatever they like in the name of LTTE, in the name Tamils. Think about how many muslim ministers and parliamentarians in the backyard of MR regime. The regime would not have had two third majority in the parliament to amend the constitution to MR to continue to enjoy the power of dictatorship. Think about how many muslims marched on the streets of Colombo when UN Human Rights council brought the resolution to defend the human right violations of the MR regime. These muslim leaders are not worried about human right violation, not worried about BBS attack on muslim mosques, they are worried about enjoying the ministerial vechiles, something they get through tenders. all these muslim leaders are corrupted and they know they can’t speak truth. It is a disgrace for the muslim community and its religion. If Assad ally goes some one else take that place and work for MR group. we all know how Rauf Hakeem cheated his allies and become justice minister. We know how he played BBS game during Eastern Provincial council elections. Do the muslim community need such opportunistic politicians.

      I am nearly in agreement with you. I asked myself not once dozens of times why the minister of justice stays as if he is anasthertised. Does anybody know when the minister of justice came forward to discuss any wrong doings happening, be it crime investigations or any other form of killing or abduction ?

      This I compare with his counterparts in EU countries. Why our minister of just is napping not just once all the times ?

        we all know the minister mentioned here, is himself a criminal, he was responsible for an innocent woman’s death, because of his vulgar behaviour, an unprincipled dirty rascal, has no right to hold any public office. MR is responsible for having disgusting fellows like him in the govt.

          Really what was that ?

          I thought he should be a good politician (me being out of country, my key sources are only web news)- but was suprised to read nothing came from him even if any crime investigations were not meeting the norms. Even if Mervin was the key accuser in Waragoda murder case, with all prima fasie evidence, courts did not convict him – so was the case of britisch murder. None of the cases, I failed to read anything about the statements of MINISTER OF JUSTICE.

      Ajith,
      Which Muslim mosques BBS attacked? None. Even at Kandy rally, Ven Gnanasara said not to touch a Muslim shop.

      Funny thing is, you all are blind to what Muslims educated at Mecca known as Wahabis have been doing to their own mosques and their own people. Find out wht they have done to Sufi mosques at Ukuwela and Beruwala.

      Do you not know that on December 15, 2006, Wahabbi infected Kattankudy UC joined the Wahhabi mob and invaded the Sufi Meditation Centre named ‘All Ceylon Thareekathul Mufliheen’ and knocked down its minaret and removed the body of its founder Abdullah or ‘Rah’ and burned it. Wahhabi thugs then set fire to houses belong to Abdullah’s followers. 117 houses were destroyed by the fire. Many Sufis fled the district, two were injured, and one lost an arm. BBS aim to stop this Wahhbi extremism.

        Leela,

        I don’t believe in What Van Gnanasara or BBS says. A report recently highlighted a large number (65) of mosques, churches and hind4 temples are attacked by extremist buddhists. If you are right about Wahhabis and their terrorism plot why your government keep a large number of Wahhabi ministers in their cabinet and continue to depend on them. So, your government lead by MR supports this terrorism? Initially you say you didn’t attack mosques and last sentance you say you aim to stop terrorism. The Logic doesn’t see match.

        Leela,

        Could you find how Bangladesh got access to Lord Buddha’s “Kesha Dathu” Hair which looks to be over six inches long.

        Didn’t Buddha shaved his hair or grew it he time he died, and if so why.

        Also how come over half dozen countries got access to Lord Buddha’s body parts after his body being cremated at 850F for 12 hours.

        There’s a saying that Tha….ya Kat…..ya. Hope you are not one of them.

    What sri Lanka needs is a political culture that is totally away from all this that we see. For this we need a group of individuals who can educate the masses without fear. The media has to give them a hand.If we are fooled by present set of politicians from any side, they will get our votes and be with any government of the day with the slogan ” we are joining for the sake of the motherland (read: our bank accounts)”
    Any religious group that spread hatred is not a representative of any religion. No religion asks to kill innocents. Whats happening in Middle East and West are the result of political hatred after a great injustice made & continue to be done on a group of people. The politicians of this region failed and religious groups took over from both side. The same hatred are being spread now in other parts of the world. The right thinking people of this country should nip this in the bud.
    The political culture we need is a culture which unites all religions of this country, gets the support of international audits to get hoards of money stacked in tax havens by any SL politician, elimination of family rule, fixed number of ministers, fixed term for each portfolio from president, PM to Ministers, Retirement age and fat retirement benefits for politicians, minimum qualification of successful A/L results to be a politicians (my classmate who failed O/L is a cabinet minister in the present regime)- Later on this to upped to graduate level. English as a standard of education in all schools. These should be some of the basis for our country to succeed.
    For this all like minded people should get together without fear and international governments who have a genuine interest to help Lanka should actively sponsor such a group. This could be a role model to eradicate such corrupt regimes in all over the world.
    such a change to come to our country the the Mahanayake and other religious leaders , private national media not in the pocket of the regime, intellectuals and other like minded people should get together.
    Will this happen is the Billion Dollar question. If not we get back to mind our business and see country perish to the dustbin of history.

    Muslims will start to gravitate towards Azath Sally.The talk at the dinner table will be that he is the only true muslim leader at the moment who stands up for the muslims.The regime has blundered badly again using a sledgehammer to whack a cockroach and cracking the floor.

    Bye bye Rauff Hakeem,Badiurdeen etc,etc and welcome Azath Sally the one and only muslim leader of Srilanka muslims,courtesy the Rajapakshes.

    Why BBs,monks are attacking the Muslims with Halal label,Why the Muslims politicians are numb and dumb.Why the government is silent on these issues.Why this sudden hatred and anger is targeting the Muslim community.why BBS,blaming the ACJU, with false allegations,like, supporting terrorism and funding to hamas, we all were watching irrespectively,with patience, even the attacks on Muslims,and Muslim business premises,on live sometimes. Muslims countries were silent but pumping funds and supporting Lanka while the Quran and the Saudi Arabia, and their culture is being criticized by the BBS,even the pig was shown on the name of ALLah. The decent cultural dress code of the Muslim women has been criticized. The government failed is duty to protect the Muslims,but still not too late,while the international pressure is high on HR,still. What worrying the Muslims is, do the Gov and Mr.working to the tune of BBS agenda,they are all out to create a sectarian violence in Sri-Lanka. Nevertheless, Yesterday, the arrest on the Muslim young leader Azath Salley, who spoke for his community, is another painful shot at Muslims, by this govt,these wounds will take a long time to heal from the hearts of Muslims community in Sri-Lanka.Country should’ve, ruled by the tool of race and religion.

    So it’is the Boss of M TNA who is behind this Bash the Buddhists campaign to provoke the innocents to launch at least a mini Progrom.

    The plot seems to thicken.

    When a few recalcitrants hiding behind yellow robes caused a few incidents, who went to town in Parliament with hair raising speeches?.

    None other than the Boss of the TNA and his “Whizz Kid”

    M TNA Boss must be ashamed of himself to be even seen to be associated with politicians and a political party who were the stooges of the LTTE, which killed 300 innocent Muslim devotees and ethnically cleansed One Hundred Thousand innocent , poor rural Muslim mums, dads and kids, and ofcourse their grandparents.

    No Wonder the complainants back tracked and withdrew the charges.

    There’s no difference between the powers that be and BBS, both have the same ingredients – womanisers, rapists, drunks, thieves, drug peddlers,smugglers – the whole rot, so they dont see anything wrong with what the BBS is doing. They do seem to have a swell time in the US, eat all what they can lay their hands on and drink anything that’s comes from a elite bottle. In what country does a top police officer salute an accused and well known, murderer and drug peddlar? In what country is an accused murderer is welcomed by the top executive of the country?

    His only sin was standing up to Gota’s BBS when they are attacking the Muslim community. Where are the other back born less Muslim leaders. They all are licking and sucking the boots of Rajapaksa & Co. They sold the Muslim community to enjoy the positions and perks they got using the community. My dear Muslim friends please don’t entertain them any longer as your leaders for they are not looking after your interest but they using you for their self interest.

    Where is the civilized world to see these thuggery and injustice. Where are the UN, Commonwealth, OIC, Arab League and GGC.

    I recon there going to be a day for these people to pay for all these sins, that day wouldn’t be long.

    Any sane person would ask himself, Why Gnanasara(Rogue-Bhikku) was allowed to say anything he wishes and free to abuse any faith that is not his own – in the most vulgar way and get away scot-free while someone who is trying to defend his community was charged under -TERRORISM. Sri Lankan muslim people know who are behind this and they will not forget it.

      Wait and see, all these likely to work well for their break away soon. Now the NFF leader seems to have changed his tune for the last few days. Tomorrow it will come with Muslim leaders. Coming color is not healthy for the ruling coalition :)

      Problem is many of them in the govt are insane.

      Gota is seen to be above law – Most known example – Barath murder case and the main candidate – accused to have killed Baratha in that incident – was given bail just because he is close to GOTA and thugs.

      Mervin and his family are seen to be above law

      Namal and his clans are seen to be above law

      Kehelmal and his family members are seen to be above law

      All others remain dead silent enjoying their perks – no matter what it is.

      And in the same time, seniors (like Vasu, Dew and the like) stay calm and quiet for their reasons – with general public sigh being hopless.

    Now the Sri Lankans wouldn’t give a dame for these MF politicians packed in the parliament. They are dirty, mean, shameless and greedy, and corrupt to the core. They are the lot destroying this good country and it’s people. They going to pay for it dearly in this and the next world.

    Overall the stand of politicians and the intellectual are right to be silent and handle the issues wisely. Our leaders should be cautious about the situation. The situation and consequences are very serious.
    Both the BBS and Azad Sally are the product of Tamil diaspora. It is a clear requirements for Diaspora to create a hating and class among communities. So that the diaspora will turn Muslim towards the Tamil which is the mandatory requirements for their Eeelam dream and merger of north and East provinces.
    The present situation is very dangerous, each and every citizen of Sri Lanka should be educated about the situation.
    Presently diaspora put the the Silk Saree in the thorn. Either way the Silk Saree will get damaged.
    There are well paid people everywhere to manipulate news and comments. Please evaluate the situation act wisely.
