Six Mosques Attacked

Government blocked social media following a series of attacks on Mosques and Muslim-owned properties by unified mobs.

Six mosques have been targeted in a string of violent attacks overnight and into the morning.

“3 mosques, 1 jumma mosque and 2 small mosques were attacked and pillaged in Kiniyama, Bingiriya in Kurunegala District while curfew was in place this early morning 13.05.2019, President’s Counsel Mohamed Ali Sabry wrote on his Facebook.

Ali Sabry who is vocal against radical Islamists wrote:

“This is how a Muslim has seen this 👇

👉curfew -> STF protection-> Destroying a particular group’s properties-> some time power cuts as well.

👉Great security authorities who defeated two terrorisms become just spectators front of the Mobs with stones.

👉Same mobs move to adjacent towns as well.

We have seen the same drama in Alutgama, Gintota and Digana as well. Unfortunately the powers given by emergency state is enough only to shoot a driver who doesn’t stop at the checkpoint.

Victims are to be arrested not the mobs.”

“This is getting out of hand. Enough racism. It’s not going to solve the issues but further escalate it,” he further wrote.

Meanwhile Police curfew has been imposed in the Kuliyapitiya, Bingiriya, Dummalasuriya and Hettipola Police Divisions as of 2pm today till 4am tomorrow.

    I hope Colombo Telegraph disables comments. FB is down, and I see people spewing venom here. It’s important for CT to be up and running. But you may consider disabling comments. Nothing is being gained by the circulation of totally unwarranted remarks put up here.

      I agree with Sumathy to suggest that CT should act at least to reject comments that incite people and provoke hatred.
      There are too many sick minds at work on these pages that are now having a field day.

      Shamefully, the Army commander claims that they have the power to stop everything. The Sinhala Zionists and its Racist Network has planned this long time back. The CIA, RAW and the Mossad blueprint is at work. Thats why they knew of the Easter Sunday attack, because its their planning of the False Flag Attack and the entire bunch of the criminals of the Sirisena did not do anything to stop the attacks. Now, that everything is planned by the Mahinda Gota group, Sira went abroad signalling to the riots. HIS FOREIGN TRAVEL itself is a code to starting of the riots. The Pakistan Intelligence knows whats going on in SL right now and they have published this with an explanantion……”Prolonging War on Islam: Terrorism in Sri Lanka and the Global Zionist Project”….. https://defence.pk/pdf/threads/prolonging-war-on-islam-terrorism-in-sri-lanka-and-the-global-zionist-project.615402/

        I find it very, very hard to believe this highly exaggerated explanation , about Sinhala Zionists, Racist network, the CIA, Mossad, global Zionist project, blue print at work etc etc. Many of my muslim friends keep saying this same story. more a propaganda against USA & Israel & Iran issue. He has missed out wahabism.
        A total lack of focus on the real issue between the islamics and other religions in Srilanka. Not a fair comment at all. The more we keep away from other issues we can solve our problems.

          Dear Rohan, If you are truly interested to know whats going on, we could guide you to some info which might change your views on this whole damn thing. Why would anyone talk about Wahhabism when it is the one that is invented by the British to dismantle the Islamic Khalifate ( The Empire that governs the world Muslim affairs) and which is used to keep the Muslims divided…? It is very relevant in today’s context. Rather than I explain it, you yourself can read and find out truth….pls check below: “TERRORISM AND THE ILLUMINATI”——— https://www.conspiracyschool.com/terrorism-and-illuminati

          Also Rohan, did you not read the Article I shared on the first comment…”Prolonging War on Islam”???? We are providing you the materials that discusses all, the reasons including the Wahhabism. But, you seem to be lazy and coming back with the same question. Read, read, read….. to get to the truth….

      I am in absolute and complete agreement with the suggestions of Sumathy and SJ.
      This is NOT a time to give a platform to peddlers of hate operating under the guise of “free speech.”
      Too much is at stake in the matter of life and death.

    I do not think by stereotyping is going to help in this matter. I do not know what the President Counsel Mr. Ali Sabry is getting at by putting all this in the facebook which is banned right now in Sri Lanka. But I do understand his sorrow at the sight of damaged mosques just as much as I understood the Cardinal’s shock at the sight of the carnage in the churches. Saner counsel must prevail. People must do their part and the state must do its part. The real issue is many feel that next time it is “us” and the state is petting a set of vipers. Clearly some politicians who hold authority must have the good sense to voluntarily request for long leave fro their positions and hold an inquiry regarding their alleged association with extremism to clear the air. If they do so, a lot of tension can go away.

    One hopes that attacks/reprisals do not escalate. There are politicians waiting to make political gains.
    MS & RW must take action to contain such incidents.
    Proper actions may be made to look unpatriotic. Remember SLPP calls ‘Reconciliation’ just that.

    Completely agree. Disabling of comments that just add fuel to the fire of outdated prejudices is unfortunately an essential cost at this delicate time.

      Disabling Comments is against the FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

    The sinhala modayas are only good at destroying things and talking of a non-existent history. Ask the dumb man Blind eagle, ever ready to write any history. This ignorant AH is a good example why SL is in this plight. “Sinhale”, moron it is really “Lanka Le”, blood flowing in Lanka ever since suddhas left. Tell me any period where we were violent free. Racial, political, religious and you name it and it is there. These are all planned attack. I dont know why MR and Gotta repeatedly crooning that there will be more attacks and more bombs. Now our Katholika Cardinal and his able assistant have come out with Islamic terrorists in uniforms. Luckily he did not say that they are in katholika robes. Cardinal, like MR and co, are exploting the situation to maximum and even making Buddhsit clergy to sweep churches. he hopes that with this katholika clans can continue with their conversion agenda and Sinhala Buddhist goons wont attack their churches. Come on Cardinal this is exactly what our Muslim Naanas thought when they contributed to 83 Anti Tamil riots and there after against VP’s war against sinhala violence. These Naanas were working in the deep penetrating units of the army and involved in placing bombs and land mines in the Tamil areas.They bought every thing what Tamils owned. After 2009 they thought it was milk and honey for them in the hands of the Sinhalas. Rest in history. Muslims have to change and urgently. Rewrite their out dates Islam and let them progress. This dress and covers have nothing to do with religion. At once remove all the Arabic sign boards. Consider that you are Sri lankans and not a separate entity. Despite all that yet there is no guarantee that our Sinhala brothers will keep quite because they have to do these on and off to keep the country keep moving forward and to remind the world that there is a chosen land named “Dhamma Deepa”. By the way our gamaya MY3 is coming back or seeking asylum somewhere?

      The point Eagle eye is trying to make is that if this island remained Sinhala then we won’t at least be having to deal with the lot of you immigrants – the Tamils and the Muslims. Muslims have not anything to harm the Sinhalese, but the Tamils have not done anything else than hurt and plunder the Sinhalese. Do you understand? Be happy that the Sinhalese are Buddhists because if you Tamils did what you have done in any other country I do not think there would be a single Tamil left in that country. There is no harm writing name-boards in Arabic, if we can write the boards in Tamil, what’s the harm in writing the boards in Arabic? Both are foreign languages. If the Muslims want we can make Arabic an official language too, because by making Tamil an official language here, the official status of languages have become a joke in this country.

    Come on Pillai. MS and MR are behind all these and how can they take action against that? MY3 has even decamped from SL as usual. By the way who are these unpatriotic? For the Lions at present the unpatriots are Muslims. Some time they are Dhemalus. Some time they are Christians. So it is on a roster basis. Moda Thambys did not realise this roster system. Had they not sabotaged Velupillai then they will be still enjoying lives with the Lions while deep penetrating into Velu’s walavuwa to sabotage his mission. Now no Velu naturally hungry Lion aka famous kotti Friday “Runner Singhas” have to look for some other pray. And Islamic modays nicely played into their hands. Even appe Holy Cow Cardinal thinking the same way that by getting the Buddhist clergy to sweep the churches appe lions are going to spare them. Dont worry cardinal and wait for your roster turn. Lions will never rest until Dukka Deepa aka Dhamma deepa is no more except a small paragraph in Mahavamsa aka Mahavambu for the future generation, if any left behind in SL, to know.

    These horrific events could have well been averted if the govt had done justice to the victims of the easter sunday carnage by atleast temporarily removing from power the 4 officials who were allegedly involved in this extremism. Inability to do so has resulted in the assault of these innocent scapegoats.

    01. People know that Ranil / Maithree ruined the military.
    02. They let ISIS to grow and kept hiding the whole things to the people.
    03. Ranil works on Muslim votes but ended up losing them all. Now innocent muslims are in trouble.
    04. Ranil maithree didnt arrest ministers and powerful people behind islamic terror group.
    05. Even if they arrest, they were release by phone calls.
    06. Amy has no right to solve the problem.
    07. So the corrupt police / Ranil / Maithree / and corrupt Islamic ministers do their dirty job together.
    08. People are miserable, as the government is so corrupt and not willing to kill any of those who involved to the 21 st attack. Instead they are busy releasing everyone.
    09. People are angry, as the government didnt do their job so they took the law to their hand.

    What was the police doing when mobs were attacking mosque couldn’t the police fire few rounds below the knee level this was a well planned and coordinated attack by a political organisation to destabilized the peace and economy of the country same was said Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith he requested from the political party leaders to control their supporters so it is very clear Maha sona BBS and Namal kumara together have committed this crime against innocent Muslims. Time has come for us to come out strongly condemn these violent acts

    Muslim youths feel betrayed .

    Muslim youths who’s Villages were attack believe The SLPP and supporters like dayasiri from SLFP were behind the attacks with funding from a certain anti Muslim Zionist (Multi religous) organization spread all over sri lanka aligned with SLPP.
    Now their filled with rage over attacks for something they were not responsible.
    Some are comming to terms that some teroror organization are their only voice.
    The Muslim Clerics and Ministers and other Muslim professionals must request the government for security to visit these effected areas and engage in dialogue with the Muslim youths effected and councel them and quickly do all they can to prevent losing them.
    The attackers must be identified and a prison sentence must be given not less than 20 years and investigation is urgently required on foreign organization’s activities not just Muslim only.

    Violence is no good . Do not cry too much for six mosques. Remember 300 killed and 500 injured 3 weeks ago. Thank (sinhalese) catholics and Buddhists for been peaceful. Looks like your guys did not care about that or need some medicine.
