“Sinha Le”, “Marraka Le”, Should We Shed Any More “Le”?

By Hilmy Ahamed

One year in to Yahapalanaya, the dice has been cast for the renewal of the hostile hate campaign of the Rajapaksa era with the spraying of graffiti “Sinha Le” on the gate of a Muslim owned residence in Nugegoda. This was followed by a violent attack on Muslims in Wellampitiya that injured five. Three were hospitalized with serious injuries. It is rumored that a lady died of a heart attack before she could be taken to hospital, in the mêlée. This has not been reported to the police nor the mainstream media carry it.

Exactly a year ago, we saw the exit of Mahinda Rajapaksa from the Presidency through a “silent” revolution that surprised even the biggest optimist. Many attributed the war winning President’s defeat to the unprecedented hate campaign that was carried out by some Buddhist extremists led by the Bodu Bala Sena. Mahinda Rajapaksa, as President and Minister of Defence failed to control this onslaught on the Muslim and evangelical Christian communities. The President was also accused of promoting a divide and rule policy amongst the Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim communities, so that he could fragment the minority votes and harness the majority Buddhist vote as the guardian of Buddhist hegemony and thereby keep himself at the helm of power for the rest of his life, or until one of his own sons could succeed him. The strategy of retaining power within the family was mainly due to the large-scale corruption, which was assumed to have been committed by the President and his siblings. This of course has not been proven with all the investigations that have been undertaken during the last 365 days. Little did Mahinda Rajapaksa realize that the combined opposition of the minorities towards his regime would send him packing to Medamulana due to his suspected bias towards the hate campaign of the Bodu Bala Sena and other extremists Buddhists.

mccain-isis3Today, politically motivated groups alleged to be close to the former regime have unleashed a new wave of hate and racism under the “Sinha Le” label. They are determined to create divisions amongst the different communities once more and the provocations of the “Sinha Le” group are clear evidence of the renewed hate campaign on the Muslims. The “Sinha Le” group is suspected of attempting to provoke the Muslims to retaliate so that their ultimate objective of causing a major island wide communal riot could be achieved. The Muslims, the Government and the rest of the citizens should take necessary steps to defuse this threat.

The inventors of the “Sinha Le” brand is unknown, with Bodu Bala Sena claiming that they conceived this in 2014, yet two monks close to the Mahinda Rajapaksa’s campaign in Kurunegala are suspected of leading the current campaign. There is also evidence on social media that discarded SLFP racist political elements of the Rajapaksa camp are encouraging this to revive their political campaign to divide the communities that could bring Sinhala chauvinists back into power.

The Sirisena-Wickremesinghe good governance government that came to power mainly through the minority vote will be held responsible if this assault on the Muslim and other minority communities are allowed to fester, hence there is an urgent need to address this as a priority security issue.

Adding fuel to this fire, Government officials are now claiming that there is a possible threat by international terrorists from ISIS or Daesh, the fascist terrorist group which claims to be Islamic. The All Ceylon Jaamiyathul Ulema, the council of Muslim theologians in Sri Lanka and several other Muslim civil society organizations have unequivocally rejected the ISIS or Daesh as an Islamic organisation and has condemned them as a threat to Muslims around the world. It is indeed worrying that state officials continue to link this un-Islamic entity to Muslims in Sri Lanka due to some online activity by sharing , taging and commenting online that could be construed as being sympathetic to the ISIS cause, but the ground situation is that there is no support for any form of terrorism from the Muslims. The lack of knowledge and novelty of online and social media could be a reason for them to share, tag and indulgence in discussions online. ISIS has also been very clever in presenting themselves as saviors of Muslims when there is enough evidence otherwise. (See attached photo)

It is a well-known fact that a Muslim, Mohamed Muhsin Sharhaz Nilam (37) (known within ISIS as Abu Shuraih Sailania), was killed in an airstrike on July 12. 2015. This does not make all Muslims sympathizers of ISIS nor do the Muslims have any direct link with any terror groups. The Muslims have been a peaceful patriotic community and continued to live in Sri Lanka as loyal citizens. The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam ethnically cleansed the Muslim population of the Northern province in 1990 for refusing to join the Eelam quest of the Tamil separatists.

Its time that all Sri Lankans commit themselves to work towards the prosperity of our nation through true reconciliation. Towards this, the Government of President Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should ensure that these racial extremists are brought before the law for inciting hate and communal threats. Failure to do so would mean that a lot of “Sinha Le”, “Marraka Le” would be shed and Sri Lanka could go back to its isolation by the international community.

    The BBS came out when an important HR event was held.

    The Sinhale thing also coincides with “internal investigation” happening this week. Yasmin Sooka also out with yet more white van accusations.

    The people involved perhaps not aware of being manipulated.

      I agree with you Vibhushana.

      There is substantial reluctance behind the, this week Internal Investigation Initiations.

      During this time, in the Wildlife Sanctuary Lankawe, the SinhaLE is painting graffiti on the walls with its emblem.

      There is no arrest so far. In all the major cities graffiti is a crime, irrelevant of any other ideological association to that like racism and hate messages. Then how can one could missing not trying to connect it with the government who is constantly sabotaging the Genocide Crime investigation?

      In that circumstances, putting every blame on the Old Royals is not justified. Isn’t this government wanted even to bring a draconian law to fight hate Speech? Say the law was in and somebody writes against Wildlife Sanctuary’s new political campaign of SinhaLE, what would have been their end? Wouldn’t there be, by now, in the prison of long line of many Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalese writers?

      At least one thanks for Sampanthar though he is claiming he is opposition leader only for Sinhalese’ government, but his voice against the Hate Act has benefited only minorities.

        People warned Rajapaske early on BBS to get a handle on it. He failed to his demise.

        I hope My3 does not follow the same path.

      ” The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam ethnically cleansed the Muslim population of the Northern province in 1990 for refusing to join the Eelam quest of the Tamil separatists.”

      Of course, LTTE did terrorise the people, ethnically cleansed Muslims from the North, used civilians as human shield, ……………. won elections for Mahinda, ….. all part of war crimes that VP and his men and women committed in the past 25 years. We condemned LTTE unreservedly and continue to do so without any doubts.

      Could you give us a detailed analysis of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Muslim Home Guards during the period under discussion. A number of torture camps were run by Muslim members of Armed forces or they actively participated in those sessions. They went beyond their call of duty.

    Who is behind and why? Why are the culprits not YET apprehended.

    2. “Many attributed the war winning President’s defeat to the unprecedented hate campaign that was carried out by some Buddhist extremists led by the Bodu Bala Sena. Mahinda Rajapaksa, as President and Minister of Defence failed to control this onslaught on the Muslim and evangelical Christian communities.”

    Why did this happen? Thew Stupidity of Mahinda Rajapaksa? Or, did he bite the bait of the Norwegians, Israelis and the Fundamentalist Christian american West?

    3. “Today, politically motivated groups alleged to be close to the former regime have unleashed a new wave of hate and racism under the “Sinha Le” label.

    The Citizens, should apply pressure on the state and the police to arrest and prosecute the culprits. See What happened to Hirunika.

    Furthermore, the civilians who are affected MUST file Multi Bullion Rupee Damage Lawsuits against the perpetrators and their backers and haul them off to the courts.

    Towards that Amarasiri strongly recommends starting a Victims Defense Fund Immediately and file Lawsuits Immediately.

    In the US they have the Civil Defense Fundm ACLU.

    Americans for Civil liberties Union.

    https://www.aclu.org/

    For almost 100 years, the ACLU has worked to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution and laws of the United States.

    So, form NOW, the Sri Lankans for Civil liberties Union.

    Don’t despair! There are still enough people of goodwill who will keep the flame burning.

    There is NO Sinhala-Le, there is NO Demala-Le, there is NO Marakkala-Le, there is NO Lansi-Le. All around me I just see good Lankika-Le.

    DON’T let the bastards leave us divided and miserable.

    Let us get the message out that together WE can make anything happen. Together, WE can stand tall and face the world with pride.

    Together, United and ONE, WE are ALL winners.

        Kamiis, you have missed the point. what makes you think that Muslims are proud to be Sri Lankans. Please remember, so many Muslims sacrificed their lives during the Eelam wars, because they were patriotic. The Muslims of teh northern province were forced out of their homes because they supported teh Sri Lankan army. How many Sinhalese had to suffer like that? So, please dont question the patriotism of the muslims. They will give their Le anytime for the country

          “Muslims are patriotic and sacrificed their lives during the Eelam war”. ” Muslims of the Northern province were forced to leave their home because they supported the Sri Lankan armed . Forces.” Says it all. There was and is nothing patriotic about your immigrant fake Arab, Tamil Muslim community from South India. You people are a bunch of opportunistic,self serving backstabbers, who will do anything for the benefit and advantage of your immigrant community. Like denying your actual largely low caste converted immigrant Dravidian Indian Tamil origin and claiming a fake Arab heritage that even the Arabs have stated that you do not have.
          The Author of this piece has given the game away, when he called the Sri Lankan Muslims” Marakale.” The term used by the Sinhalese for the Sri Lankan Muslims. So he is admitting to the fact, that the ancestors of the present day Sri Lankan Muslims arrived, by the Marakallams ( the wooden vessel in Tamil) from South India to the island a few centuries ago. The Tamil Muslim caste called the Marrikars or Marrikarayan are the people who operate the Marrakallams.
          Tell me when did it become patriotic and brave to support the Sinhalese and a racist war criminal Sinhalese Sri Lankan army to commit genocide, war crimes large scale ethnic cleansing of the island’s indigenous Eezham Tamil population and steal their land. This is what you Muslims have been doing from the time of independence. Supporting all racist genocidal Sinhalese governments to, kill, loot, burn Tamils their homes and businesses, deny their right to education employment, steal their land with large scale illegal Sinhalese and Muslim colonisation. It was a Muslim minister who introduced standardisation to deny Tamils higher education and employment. So are all these patriotic acts?
          Muslims lost a lot of lives! What lives its peanuts compared to the more than 300000 largely innocent Tamil lives lost and the more than 1.2 million ethnically cleansed and displaced from their lands due to the activities of the Sri Lankan government the Sinhalese armed forces, Muslim Home guards in the east and Sinhalese and Muslim mobs in the south of the island. No one harassed or bothered about the Northern Muslims. However as usual,the Muslims in the north just a small microscopic minority, living in a sea of Hindu and Christian Tamils, instead of minding their own business and getting on with their lives, started their backstabbing activities. Spying for the Sri Lankan Sinhalese armed forces, hiding arms in the mosques and was caught by the LTTE. Who asked them to do this? Why were4 these arms hidden and for what reason. This is to use it against their fellow Hindu and Christian Tamils. The LTTE caught all these activities in time and did not want a repeat of what happened to the Tamils in their own lands in the east and in the Sinhalese south at the hands of the Sinhalese and Muslims. SO packed them off.
          During a time of war they were enemy aliens spying for a racist Sinhalese army that was raping looting and killing Tamil civilians. They did this despite speaking Tamil and being ethnically Tamils. They had no feeling empathy for the plight of their fellow Hindu and Christian Tamils, only were using the historic Sinhalese hatred for the island’s Tamils and the situation to get as much as possible for their Immigrant South Indian community at the expense of the Tamils. There is nothing patriotic about this only pure evilness opportunism and selfishness.
          Remember Islam and being Muslim is not an ethnicity it is a religion and personal faith, that cuts across many people races language groups and ethnicities. You are Muslim by religion but Dravidian Tamil by ethnicity, a wee bit of Arab admixture amongst some Muslims does not make you Arab but still Muslim Tamils with bit of Arab.
          Real patriotism would have been to have stood up with your fellow Hindu and Christian ethnic kindred against state sponsored Sinhalese racism and genocide against the Tamils. If this had happened from the very beginning the Sinhalese would have baulked blinked and would not have gone to this level. However instead of doing this, you backstabbers joined hands with the Sinhalese at every opportunity to kill rape loot ethnically cleanse Tamils and commit genocide and war crimes on them.
          The Eelam war was not a war on terrorism but a just war to win the genuine rights of the island’s Tamils that was systematically being denied at every opportunity by the Sinhalese state. It may have lost its way at times but the Tamils were pushed to a corner, especially after a Sri Lankan President openly coming on to the TV during the state sponsored anti Tamil pogrom in 1983and stating if” I kill and starve the Tamils the vast majority of the Sinhalese will be very happy. I cannot displease the Sinhalese, so will not do anything to the Tamils.” This sort of open racist talk was only done during the Nazi era against the Jews and other minorities.
          What did the Muslims do clapped and joined hands with the Sinhalese. You call all this patriotic? Why because they were the beneficiaries of this war. Purchasing all the properties/businesses of the fleeing Tamils around Colombo and other cities. Joining Sinhalese armed forces and thugs to kill Tamils and ethnically cleanse thousand of Tamils in the east, who still have not been allowed to return to their lands by these very same Muslims.
          The Muslims have always been the obstacle for genuine peace in the island. They just sat there and supported the Sinhalese and the Tamils had fight for their land language as it was theirs, not the Muslims( who largely arrived here as refugee immigrants) and when there is a sign of a settlement come as party poopers to spoil everything, demanding what about me. I want this and than only from the Tamils and their land and nothing from the Sinhalese despite 70% of them living amongst the Sinhalese.
          You joined the Sinhalese in their genocidal crusade against the island’s Tamils from the very beginning, overtly and covertly supported them, as even you admit this and are still doing this in the Tamil east, in order to steal the east from its real owners the Eelam Tamils. The east is not Muslim land. The Eelam Tamils are the real owners. It has been Tamil Hindu land from ancient prehistoric times. Ruled by Hindu Tamils, every ruin archaeological evidence dating 2500 years old is all Tamils. Tamis are still the largest community 40% not the Muslims. If the Tamil refugees from India return the percentage will become more. You backstabbers only came here a few centuries ago to our land begging for asylum and refuge and we gave it mistaking you as fellow Tamils. Now you ungrateful wretches are trying to steal our land like the cuckoo bird, with the help of the illegal Sinhalese settlers and the racist Sinhalese armed forces that are still there just for this purpose. In the south the Sinhalese are harassing you as they don’t want you people to be powerful in their lands but are in cohorts with you backstabbers in the north and east to steal Tamil land.
          So it was ok and patriotic when the Sinhalese committed genocide on the Tamils. You clapped supported them and joined in this too( your words not mine) However when the very same Sinhalese whom you supported to commit war crimes and genocide on the Tamils have now turned on you, jump up and down and howl and call it a crime. How come? What was good for the Tamils is good for your opportunistic immigrant community too. You never though it will be your turn but will constantly reap the benefits from the misery of the Tamils.

            Paul what you don’t realize is that your God Prabaharan drove away the entire Muslims of the north and looted their wealth. He also massacred our people when they were praying in a mosque in Kathankudy. The Muslims have never trusted the Tamils because of the ,many betrayals

              He never bothered about them for a long time but only drove them away once they started to overtly and covertly spy and support the racist Sinhalese armed forces who were stationed there, Spy for them and hide large caches of arms understood they were behaving like back stabbing traitors and enemy aliens against the Tamil population in the north. What do expect him to do hug and kiss these backstabbers? Who asked them to do that in the first place? You want to live in friendship and amicability with the Sinhalese in their areas but do the opposite in the Tamil areas, despite speaking Tamil and being ethnically Tamil( being Muslim is not an ethnicity but a religious identity), constantly working against the Tamils, plotting and planning on how best to steal their lands, with the help of the illegal Sinhalese settlers and the racist Sri Lankan armed forces that are stationed there just for this purpose.
              Oh yes you are very quiet about the large scaled ethnic cleansing of Hindu Tamil villages by the Muslim home guards who were armed by the Sri Lankan armed forces. They killed raped and looted thousands of Tamils their lands homes and properties. Especially in the Amparai area. These Tamils are yet not allowed to return. Even now the Muslims are still up to these tricks in the east, with the support of the illegal Sinhalese settlers. We all know the arms to kill murder loot and ethnically cleanse surrounding Hindu Tamil villages were all hidden inside the mosques and the Kattankudy mosque a Muslim stronghold and a hotbed of Salafi Islamic extremist was the biggest arms depot. You go there and pray to Allah to bless the killing of the Tamil Hindu Kaffirs and then collect the arms for the ethnic cleansing foray. It was not Pirpakaran but your current darling Karuna whose sister is married to a Muslim, who knew about this and attacked the this arms depot/mosque just before another raid on Tamil Hindu villages was going to take place. They were only worshipping before a raid and to collect their weapons and Karuna sent them to heaven to their 72 virgins. Do not try to distort facts.

                Dear Paul,

                In the other thread you said, “The Tamils of India and Sri Lanka (the Dravidians) are the lineal descendants of the ancient Naga and Yaksha people.”

                Do you have any Academic/Scholarly research evidence to prove this? Has anybody taken up this for research study and come to conclusion that the Dravidians (or Tamils) descend from ancient Naga and Yaksha people?

                I cannot find anything reliable anywhere, can you please give me some clue if you have the proof? The name of the research or a link will do. Thanks.

            The current philosophy of patriotism in Wildlife Sanctuary Lankawe is created by hybrids like Don Stephen and Solomon Ridgway and patronized by like Dyan De Silva and Michael Robert.

            The Original hatred in the modern era was sowed by Anakarika Dharmapala against Christians and Muslims. As Christians were the rulers, it was not easy of taking on them. So, Sinhalese showed it on Muslims, who just only favored by rulers, but not given part in ruling. This is the result of 1915, first communal Riot of Wildlife Sanctuary, Lankawe. in the 1920s and 1930s, the hybrids seeing the potential of they being attacked, by 1940s they twisted Anakarika Dharmapala’s preaching against Hindus.

            Patriotism is only for Sinhalese Buddhist and it is advanced and advocated by the nervous hybrids, either in religion or race. Muslim’s patriotism is new to wildlife sanctuary land SinhaLE Lankawe. They are starting this new talk only after seeing the Aluthgma. From 1915 to until now they were not thinking of patriotism, as recently as Badhiyudeen. Their bravery is showed by joining the winning party. It was well demonstrated in 1915 when they were too brave so hiding behind the rulers to launch the riot. But Ramanathan broke the backbone of that by getting the Sinhalese leaders released. After freedom, they had completely surrendered to the new masters. Badhiyudeen was the first one showed that slavery mind and work for Sirima as a mercenary. When Aluthgama took place, the only person trying protect, just like Ramanathan in 1915, the Muslims was DIG Indren. The brave patriotic Hakeem, Rishad… protected the rulers, the Old Royals, by stealing the evidence and destroying that for ever so that the culprit would never be punished. Then Hakeem laughed at Tamils as “beggars show off beggar wounds and beg, but Muslim always hide it before they stretch out the beggar bowl”.

      If Arabs came and married Sinhala mothers, your mother tongue should have been either Sinhala or Arabic. However, if you take the Muslims (Moors) living in the Southern & Western province or Northern & Eastern province or the Central province, they all speak Tamil as their mother tongue. Have you come across any Muslim (Moor) family in Sri Lanka speaking Sinhala as their mother tongue or even Arabic as their mother tongue? Even those Muslim (Moors) who study in the Sinhala medium speak Tamil at home.

      Only a very small number of Sri Lankan Muslims, where the Father was Tamil speaking Muslim, and the mother Sinhala Buddhist or Sinhala Christian who converted to Muslim, but speak Sinhala at home because the mother did not know Tamil.

      This shows that the Sri Lankan Muslims (Moors) are South Indian immigrants, Tamil Muslims.

        Tuan, this shows how naive you are about the history of Muslims and the nation. The Muslims chose Tamil as the mother tongue from the South Indian Muslims who came to trade here, and not because they were the ancestral forefathers. Yes, there are some Muslims of south indian Muslims who have been categorized as Indian muslims. They are mostly the pettah traders

          No you are not. You are all descneded from Dravidian South Indian Tamil immigrants. Stop lying. Thousands of Arabs never came to the island or settled here. Only a few hundred came here, over a period of a few hundred years, that also not to convert of to conquer but to trade. They traded with the Tamils who lived along the coastal areas and the Tamils from South India. They were no Sinhalese around this area, most of the modern day coastal Sinhalese are the descendants of these coastal Tamils for any Arab to meet or marry. If would have had to travel further inland to meet and take Sinhalese women, that would have been very weird when there were thousands of Tamil females who look exactly like the Sinhalese females in the interior. Not all these Arab traders took women only a few. The half caste bastards that they produced with these Tamil women would not have made any dent in the DNA or genetic make of the Tamil Muslims who arrived from South India around the 14TH century and were living along the western southern coastal areas.
          Stop lying. Thousands of Arabs came and then married non existent Sinhalese women ( when Sinhalese hardly lived along the coast at that time. Check all the coastal Sinhalese they all belong to Sinhalese communities that are descended from South Indian Tamil immigrants)and then these so called half Arab half Sinhalese half castes instead of speaking either Arabic or Sinhalese or both. Magically learn Tamil from the few South Indian Tamil Muslims and start to blabber around in fluent Tamil, with hardly any knowledge of their parents Sinhalese or Arabic. Can you believe this miracle. Sprouting fluent Tamil from dealing with a few hundred Tamil Muslims but no knowledge of their mother’s Sinhalese or father’s Arabic. What were they speaking until then at home or elsewhere? Gibberish or they were all mute and then like going to a Pentecostal meeting. met a few hundred Tamil Muslim traders from South India and hey presto a miracle happened, they started to speak and this tongue was Tamil. Their Sinhalese mother’s and Arab fathers cried in joy but still could not understand the Tamil blabber of their little darlings. So the Arab father set out to sail again in disgust and the Sinhalese mother marched back again in anger to her village in the interior. Wouldn’t that be a beautiful Arabian Night tale. The tale of the 1001 Arab/Sinhalese half castes who miraculously started to chirp in Tamil. So tell me did they also learn to dress like the Tamils follow Tamil customs, take Tamil Muslim caste names just like in South India, dress like Tamils, eat South Indian Tamil food and build homes just like in South India, After their brief encounter with these Tamil Muslim traders. Must have been a hell of a meeting. So they did not inherit anything from their Sinhalese mothers and Arab fathers. Language, looks dress mode,names customs, food. Nothing everything from the South Indian Tamil traders? Strange. MMM I think the Vappa was not Arab but from Tamil Nadu. Mummy done some hanky panky and also think Umma was not Chingkalam but Thamiz from Thamil Nadu too. Aney no Arable no Sinhale but Marakale Demale. No wonder Sinhale no like and Arable no like too, telling no Arab but Indian convert to Islam

            Paul, you are stuck up because the Sinhala soldiers fu..ked your Prabaharan from the backside and it is still hurting you. As for the Muslims, yes they may have been a few hundred, but they had what it takes to breed, which you cannot even think of. Even today, the three quarters are sought after, and they are the best. So, a few hundred was enough to make things work

              Yes we do know that Muslims are obsessed with Sodomy and sodomising. So you do admit the Sri Lankan soldiers committed horrible war crimes on the Tamil civilians and you backstabbers overly and covertly supported them and now try to pass of as patriotic. That is why you are gloating here on the rape and sexual assault of the Tamil civilians by the Sri Lankan armed forces. Then wonder why Tamils hate you sly nasty evil converted fake Arab low caste backstabber from South India. You only showed your class by this post. Gloating about soldiers committing sexual acts on dead bodies.
              Breeding like rats is no great thing, but civilised humans now don’t do that. Only sub humans and rats still do it. So you admit to this too? We all know this tactic, this is why there is so much resentment against Muslim immigration in the west. Especially after what happened in Cologne.

            Now you are trying to start another War.

            BTW the Muslims arrived in Sampans by Sea from Indonesia/Malaysia, and landed in ‘Sampantota’ Which later became Sinhalised into ‘Hambantota’. The Sampans had a Split Sail
            ‘Ruvala’ which was Sinhalised to ‘Beruvala’; another favourite Landing Point for Muslims.

          If the language of trading was Tamil, it is only the men who did trading. Why did your women and children who should have been speaking Sinhala or Arabic as mother tongue also started speaking Tamil as mother tongue? Learning Tamil as an additional language for doing business is OK but why did they stop speaking Sinhala or Arabic which should have been the home spoken language.

            Tuan, you are more ignorant than I presumed. When the men trade in Tamil, their friends are also Tamil speaking and when families meet, the speak Tamil because the Indian traders never learnt Sinhala.

              According to you, the Arabs who spoke Arabic as their mother tongue married Sinhalese women who spoke Sinhala as their mother tongue and they both abandoned their own mother tongue and adopted a foreign language Tamil as their mother tongue just because their trading partners and their families were speaking Tamil.

              A persons mother tongue is like a mother, Sinhalese will not abandon their mother tongue in their own country to adopt the language of a neighbouring country just because you do business with them. Think logically man, your argument has no logic.

              We Malays also married Sinhalese women, we still speak both Malay and Sinhala as our mother tongue. You people the so called Moors came from Tamil Nadu with your Tamil speaking women.

                Tuan you are wasting time with them, just like most Sinhalese have been brainwashed to believe the Mahawansa myth and they are all pure Aryans despite concrete evidence to prove they are not and are largely descended from Dravidian Tamils. They will never agree to this(despite knowing in their hearts this is true) and will keep on arguing insulting and abusing you stating they are not, as many in this site do. As to agree to this fact is something they cannot bear to admit and acknowledge that they are descended from the hated Tamils whom they have been taught by all their parents elders and peers to hate and look down and also reluctantly to acknowledge and admit the fact that the Tamils have far older history in the island than them and their just historical claim to their lands. This does not augur well with their dream of a pure Sinhalese Buddhist land as promised to them by their Manavamsa myth.
                It is the same with these Tamil Muslims in Sri Lanka. Inwardly they all know that there is very little Arab and hardly any Sinhalese blood in them and they are Dravidian Tamil whose ancestors arrived in the island around the 14Th century mostly in wooden boats called Marraklam in Tamil, hence the term Marrakale/Marrakalayo/Marakalla minnisu (people from or of the wooden boats) in Sinhalese. The Tamil Muslim Caste name Marrikar or Marrikarayan is derived from this term. Until recently all their caste/sur names were Tamil Muslim caste names from south India. Lebbai, Marrikar, Rawther, Pitchchai. Thambi ETC. However they also will deny this and will confront you aggressively like most of them do here, if you ever suggest to them their real largely low caste Hindu Dravidian immigrant Indian Tamil origin. As they have also been brainwashed by their elite politicians and powers to be that they are all descended from Arabs and local Tamil women however now due to politics they have changed their story from an Arab/Tamil origin to an Arab/Sinhalese origin concocting an unbelievable story that they started to speak Tamil due to their contact with Tamil Muslim traders from India. What a load of bullshit, they would have contact with a lot of others too who were not Tamils and what about the language of their so called Sinhalese mother and Arab father( sic) they would have far more contact with them. Unless the Arab father had nice hanky panky with their Umma and then left. We all have contacts with lots of people and languge groups over our lifetime and do not start changing our language unless, we move to another land. Sinhalese women were living in their land so why do they have to change their home language to Tamil, because their menfolk traded with Indian Tamil traders? What a load of crap. Lastly around that time the Sinhalese hardly lived along the coast. They were mainly framers living in the interiors. It was the Tamils who were living along the coast engaging in trading fishing perl diving Etc. The descendants of these coastal Tamils are the present day coastal Sinhalese. Arabs never came to the island in their thousands. Only a few hundred came spanning a period of a few centuries. They only came to trade not to convert to conquer, very few of them only would have any sort of relationship with the local women and even this would have been with the local Tamil women living along the coast and not with some Sinhalese woman living in the interior of the island. These few half castes produced by this union would hardly have made any dent in the DNA or the ethnic make up of the Tamil Muslims living in the island. This is why when challenged to produce proof of Arab ancestry only a few hundred families were able to produce some form of very distant Arab ancestor. The rest of them could not. These would have numbered only around 20000-30000 if I AM very generous out of the total Muslim population of around 1.9 million in the island. Whom are they trying to fool with these cock and bull stories. They do not want to acknowledge their real origin, as do not want admit to their largely low caste immigrant Tamil Hindu origins from India. This is also acknowledging their fairly recent immigrant status. By now denying their real Tamil origins and claiming a fake Arab and part Sinhalese origin, they are cunningly trying to state that they are indigenous to the land due to the Sinhalese ancestry on their female side. They also thing that this will now protect them the current backlash against them from the Sinhalese extremist elements, by stating that they are part Sinhalese. So the story has changed from Arab/Tamil origin hen pure Arab to now Arab/Sinhalese origin. They think that claiming their real immigrant Indian Tamil origin especially now will be calamitous. They have always been a very sly self serving community who will do anything that they think is advantageous to them. Have always denied their real Tamil origin as they think, the they will get a better deal from the Sinhalese, who hate anything Tamil. Next will be they are Sinhalese converts to Islam who miraculously started speak Tamil and follow Tamil customs eat Tamil food ETC. Moreover 70% of them live amongst the Sinhalese.

        Tuan he is thinking of his Sinhala housemaid mother who went to work in Gulf in an Arab household and returned to give birth to a part Arab baby. Most probably what he states partly true thousands of part Arab babies born to Sinhalese mothers returning from the Gulf. They then send these babies to live amongst Tamil Muslim traders from India, so that they can speak Tamil

      President wreaking havoc : Blocks arrest of Rajapakse siblings in Thajudeen murder ; interferes in Ekneliyagoda investigations and with FCID

      Lanka Grape vine, Bulath vine and Vetilla Vine News. Based on the evidence that have surfaced in connection with the ghastly cruel murder of Thajudeen the Rugby player , though it is possible to arrest both Namal Rajapakse and Yoshitha Rajapakse , but because of the pressures exerted by president Maithripala Sirisena , the arrests are thwarted, according to information reaching Lanka e news inside information division. Earlier on too the media reported one of the Rajapakse siblings was to be taken into custody , that too was obstructed on pressures brought to bear on it by the president.

      Meanwhile , the CCTV recordings relating to the Thajudeen murder forwarded to the computer division of the Colombo University for investigation are blurred because of the light flashing on the pictures ,and consequently , the video recordings cannot be made out , the information system Manager S.C.M. B. Dissanayake of the University computer faculty had informed Colombo additional magistrate Nishantha Peiris yesterday, while recommending that those video recordings be subjected to a foreign investigation.

      Lanka Grape vine, Bulath Vine and Vetilla Vine News inside information service within the Presidential secretariat reveals that DIG Waidyalankara who was conducting investigations impartially so far is to be replaced by DIG S.M. Wickremesinghe the president’s secret friend who became notorious as the ‘helup karaya’ of the President when the latter goes gallivanting in the nights after facial ‘make up’ is done for the president by Royal cosmetic expert . Indeed the family of Maithripala had complained that DIG Wickremesinghe is trying to break up the family based on these night outings.It is reported plans are afoot to hand over the FCID to this DIG Wickremesinghe who accompanies Maithripala when he turns into prince charming in the nights and creeps out. Wickemesinghe is the son of a Goviraja of Polonnaruwa.

      It is learnt that the president during the last several days using his close SLFP ministers castigated the FCID through media briefings . This is believed to be a part of the plan driven by the ulterior motive to make the FCID submissive and make it dance according to his villainous tune.

      It has by now become crystal clear that providing legal aid by the army to the army suspects in the murder of Prageeth Ekneliyagoda , which has never ever happened before in the country’s history is being carried out with the president’s consent . Hence the Civil organizations are throughly disappointed and disillusioned over it. They have expressed their displeasure in this regard.

      A Civil organization leader Saman Rathnapriya making a statement today said , the defense secretary Hettiarachi had pressurised the Attorney General’s department to withdraw Dileepa Peiris who is the state counsel ,from the Ekneliyagoda case . It is noteworthy Dileepa Peiris is taking a firm stand against legal aid being provided to the army suspects in Ekneliyagoda’s case.

      In the meantime , Josef Stalin the secretary of the Teachers association convening a media briefing yesterday said , “a group is saying ,in the Ekneliyagoda murder investigations, the heroes of the forces have been taken into custody . Just because they fought a war , it does not mean anybody is issued license to kill people. The Brigadier who is responsible for the shooting in the Rathupaswala incident has returned to the country. No action has been taken agaisnt him either.In the report of the Human Rights Commission , it is clearly mentioned , the law shall be enforced against those who did the shooting and who gave the orders. Until today nothing has been done in this regard. It is most intriguing and a big issue to us why this government too is giving protection to them,” Stalin pointed out.

    Hilmy Ahamed:

    “but the ground situation is that there is no support for any form of terrorism from the Muslims.”

    Do you have conclusive evidence of that?

    I have seen several profiles of muslims on facebook in sri lanka that would beg to disagree. This is a real problem, and the ever growing population and lack of emphasis of education among the group aint going to help.

      Begehot, This is exactly what I am saying. Today, most Sri Lankans, not just the Muslims don’t know what they are doing online. Their shares, tags, and comments are done without any rationale and done at the spur of the moment. They think that they are either doing it for their country, religion or community without knowing the consequences. We, as Muslim civil society know quite a bit of the ground realities, and that is why we say there is no ground support. It does not mean that there is none in a million. These undesirables will have to be dealt with the full force of the law. Didn’t we have Sinhala Buddhist supplying pen torch batteries to the LTTE to make Jhonny Battas that was blowing up the legs of our soldiers?, Didn’t we have army officers passing on information to the LTTE for a fee? These are realities, that need to be dealt with.

        You should take in to consideration 100’s of pseudo FB profiles created to discredit muslims. If you do bit if scrutiny on many of these social media profiles you can quickly find out the owner is not a muslim.

        I would say Sri Lanka Muslims are smarter, we have not fallen in to the trap set by Velu Pillai and BBS. This too will be handled smartly. With current rulers this will not go too far and it will never be a campaign like BBS. BBS had the full backing of then rulers, whereas here it is being pushed thru by bankrupt politicians are just waiting to be arrested.

        This is what the ministry of defence is planting to steer up trouble to create a rift between the Muslims and the peace loving Buddhists. The statement came from the Secretary of Defence and every one knows his background. He is the biggest MR plant in government.The intelligence units are still controlled by Gota. So what more can you expect from them. Sirisena should be aware of all this and an immediate clean up is necessary. This is his job and should focus on this without talking about Bras and undergarments, otherwise there is going to be a major communal rioting as in 1983, this time targeted at the Muslims because they are the ones who sent Mahinda home

    Clearly, Sri Lankan Muslims don’t like the fact that around the world other Muslims are being harmed. But they are more incensed by the fact that these people being endangered are Muslim than that they are Palestinian, Syrian, Iraqi, or whatever. We don’t see the same level of outrage when Muslims like Saddam Hussein kill Kuwaiti Muslims, or when Hizbollah or Islamic Jihad kill Israeli children, or when the Saudis execute Sri Lankan Muslims. Clearly, Sri Lankan Muslims identify with other Muslims worldwide, but mostly when they are in conflict with, or under attack by, non-Muslims.

    So I think it is safe to say that Sri Lankan Muslims are identifying with the Muslimness of those people rather than the circumstances they find themselves in. I find this a bit annoying because it reminds me of the knee-jerk reactions of Tamils in Toronto and London who allowed their Tamilness to overrule other considerations. Sri Lankan Tamils in the diaspora certainly felt more Tamil than Canadian or British, and that led to their protests about what was happening in Sri Lanka. So do Muslims feel the same? Do they identify with a global Islam that has a stronger identity than that of being Sri Lankan? Certainly, Sri Lankan Christians (I mention them simply because they are the only other Sri Lankan ethnicity with a global presence) don’t view conflicts around the world through a religious lens or, if they do, identify enough with those warring parties to take any action. There were no Christian protests about the Yugoslavian conflict, or various wars in Africa. You don’t see Christian protests outside Arab embassies when an Islamic terror group targets a western (Christian) country.

    Now, I want to ask my Muslim friends whether you realize that what you are doing is setting yourselves apart in the eyes of other Sri Lankans; it is making us feel as if you are more interested in what is happening on the other side of the world than what is happening right here; that you are immersed insomething the rest of Sri Lanka is not. At a time when it is important for Sri Lankan Muslims to reinforce their Sri Lankanness, and avoid being labelled outsiders, is this what you should be doing? Or do you feel that your solidarity with Muslims worldwide is more important, more identifying, than your Sri Lankanness?

      Mr or Mrs Bagehot. Thank you for raising the point. Yes, sadly, the Muslims are made to believe that they have to defend their brethren anywhere and that is the sad reality. The Muslim stooges of the west who claim as kings and leaders have been eliminating their own to survive. The west is supporting them with weapons and espionage information to keep these tyrants in power in return for oil and investments. If the arabs or chinese pull out their dollars from the US economy, America would collapse and would be worse than Zimbabwe. So, there is western interests to protect the brutal regimes of the middle east. The poor global muslims are made to believe that they have an obligation to protect their faith. Its all because the west control the media, including the supposedly Muslim owned Al Jazeera. Thank you for highlighting the Arab hypocrisy

    Our Batalanda PM is with the USA , all the way . Plus Cameron.

    ISIS certainly will focus on that when they get time..

    Galboda Gnanissara and his BBS brought Batalanda and Bodhi Sira to Power against all odds as Mr Hilmy says..

    But Mr Hilmy didn’t elaborate on their intensive training in Norway.

    Norwegian new FM was in town last week to help consolidate Yahaplanaya.

    His High Power delegation held talks with Batalanda PM and his Foreign Minister.

    The FM immediately stated that the White Courts will start in earnest early in the year.

    Grown up Lankans surely can see the aims of these manouverings between the Yahapalana Government and the West. although the Mission Statement is not in the Public Domain.

    Let Sinha Le not underestimate the Muslim Le. It can become tiger le which is more potent when it is injured. The lion could be called the king of the jungle, but a wounded tiger could be much more ferocious, so keep your attack on Muslims controlled because Muslims do not fear death. They die only once and will not be reborn as a dog or monkey. Their faith in their religion is firm and their resolve to fight for justice may make them defend themselves from cardboard weeraya’s with brutal force

      Rohan, this is the problem with the Sinhala majority who suffer from a minority complex. I agree the colonial rulers treated them as a low class lot because they used the Tamils and Muslims to control the illiterate Sinhalese. You cannot blame the minorities for this. The Sinhala leaders including DS, Dudley, JR, SWRD were also anglicized Sri Lankans as their names themselves suggest. They cut deals with the British masters and kept the Buddhists in their place. Today, there is a revival of Sinhala chauvinism, but that should not be at the expense of the minorities. The Tiger Le, or Sinha Le or Marrakala Le should have equal status as per our constitution. If that is not honoured, there would be a lot more Le spilled before this country could ever progress. Its time some Sinhala buddhists with their head properly mounted on their shoulders ensure that racists are kept in their place.

    Another good article from Hilmy

    It is so sad to see that some people will never allow this country to prosper- the Middle East migrant workers are the main foreign revenue earner for the country, and more than 800000 Sri Lankans work there and 80% of them are Sri Lankan Muslim. If they find their families or loved ones getting harmed back home, they will not have any second thoughts in joining the ISIS to avenge their injured or dead brethren, this is quite a normal reaction for anyone, if this Sinhale campaign gets out of hand, very soon you will have thousands of Muslims joining ISIS and the situation will become catastrophic to Sri Lanka, there will be problems on the main lifeline foreign revenue provider to Sri Lanka and secondly tourism will suffer in many ways, and thirdly the government will have to provide alternative employment to the people working in the Middle East.

    I just don’t understand why the leaders in Sri Lanka don’t see what’s in store for the country if this hate campaign is allowed to grow.

    All of the commentators miss one major point. If the so called Sinha Le campaign is to state that the majority community is of animal origins, we can totally understand the reason why we went through such turmoil for the last 30 years.

    Let us all agree at some point that we all have human blood and then we will see development and growth happening in this beautiful land called Sri Lanka.

    Animals cannot be good planners of future and they can never rule a nation. So it is imperative that we all realize that we carry HUMAN LE in our system.

    One group fought for supremacy with language as a criteria. After 30 years they realized it was not worth it. Religious/Race supremacy is also another far fetched idea that will never yield any results.

    Only the instigators would be in business, selling stickers, spray cans and occasionally knives and sticks to hurt anyone at their whim and fancy.

    Let the ones bound for the prison be taken in. The normal law abiding citizens can work to develop friendship across all race, religion, caste or creed.

    Sinhalese have the right to protect( RTP) themselves and their country against imported jihadism and ISIS. Sinha-le is the result. Do not brand these Sinhala people as racists as we majority Sinhalese also have a right to safeguard ourselves and the country. With this governments actions Sinhalese people see themselves as being made second class citizens and when they fight against this they are branded as racists. Govt has to reassure the Sinhalese people that this is not so. Minorities cannot have preferences that the majority does not have.

    Sri Lanka escaped sanctions from Middle East countries after the Aluthgama attack by the stupid monk Gnanasara and BBS. If the Arab countries impose sanctions on the labour imports, more than one million will lose the jobs. Do we have jobs in Sri Lanka for this million? The foreign exchange earned by our country from these expatriate labour is the largest for the country. It has surpassed all over exports including tea and garments. This Sinha Le campaign is similar to the Halal campaign that was launched by the BBS. In both these campaigns, Mahinda Rajapaksa and his brutish brother Gotabhaya were the masterminds. We do not need another crisis. Sri Lanka has enough troubles with the Diaspora Tamils and If the Muslims start a boycott campaign in the middle east, we are doomed. So far, the Muslims have remained patriotic. If they become militant, we will have ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and all other terrorists knocking on our doors. I humbly ask our president and prime minister to immediately arrest the organisers behind the Sinha Le campaign and bring them to justice for inciting hatred amongst fellow Sri Lankans. Failure would mean disaster to our economy

    The scourge of racism is being reignited by the Rajapaksa terrorists. This will not auger well for the country which has just got some breathing space from the international community. The Muslims may have been a peaceful lot, but their tolerance levels should not be over estimated. The organisation of Islamic countries put Sri Lanka on its radar during the Aluthgama riots and Mahinda Rajapaksa please with the secretary general of OIC in New York where both were attending a UN meeting and got some respite. If there is a repeat, the full force of the petro wealth would be brought on Sri Lanka. Hopefully, this will not happen and the President will take immediate steps to stoop this bloody Le business

    “The Muslims, the Government and the rest of the citizens should take necessary steps to defuse this threat.”

    The only effective way to permanently defuse any threat is to address, identify and neutralize the factors that create such a threat. As long as the Islamic lifestyles of Muslim Sri Lankans continue to create a sense of uncertainty, apprehension and even fear among the Buddhists, there will always be space for the emergence of anti-Muslim groups. Acts such as changing the regime and introducing hate speech laws will at most provide temporary relief, much like trying to prevent a volcano by blocking it’s apex.

    The Muslim Community must take the bold step of looking hard at itself through the eyes of the Buddhist Community. Empathy is the need of the hour if the Muslims really wish to learn as to what it is about them that is perceived negatively by their Buddhist brothers and sisters. For instance, stubbornly insisting that there is no possible threat from ISIS in Sri Lanka simply will not do – especially in view of the fact that at least one Muslim Sri Lankan has been killed fighting for ISIS. Attributing the latest anti-Muslim activities to supporters of the previous regime based on speculation is merely a game of smoke and mirrors.

    The simple fact of the matter is that the Muslims have been sleeping for the past 12 months, when they should have been actively re-building and strengthening the bonds of communal harmony with the Buddhists. As Bisthan Batcha says in his latest blog entry, “We should bear in mind at all times that the tolerance of our Buddhist brothers and sisters should not be misconstrued as acquiescence on their part.”

    I certainly do not have Sinha Le, because my great grand mother do not copulate with an animal. All those who claim Sinha Le are from some frustrated women who chose an animal to satisfy her sexual desire. She could have turned to any Thambi would would have got the best
